Shrug, because it's different?
I will probably work on it, but thought it unique enough to post.
Cheap plastic fantastic, body and lens, Sima 100/f2 wide open with FujiFilm X-E1.

Beautiful wedding portfolio, Ian! Wonderful toning and contrast to these.

Thank you - they're a second attempt at the processing.

I was way too dark the first time and when the prints came back I thought they looked almost OK but my wife told me (in no uncertain terms!) that they weren't. So then I downloaded a stack of wedding images by different people and checked the luminance values on the faces. They were all around 235 on the lightest bits, whereas mine were down at 200 or so. It looked OK on a backlit screen with a black frame in photoshop but not on paper.

So now I set my screen in photoshop to white and check every face. It was annoying to have to redo them all but I learned for next time.

^ Agreed, there's a certain presence and calm in those photos I really like.

I brought my new XC 50-230 on a short bike run today. Sun was high in the sky, harsh light, nothing real interesting to shoot and not a lot of time for it. But I have to say... seems pretty impressive IQ wise for what you pay. I got a great deal on mine from someone who got it free with the camera and didn't have any use for it. And really, neither do I. But for the price I figured it could be fun to have once in a while. I had already decided not to get the 55-200 since, for me, it would certainly be sitting at home on a shelf the few times I would like to have it, due to size and weight.

Anyway, I met a few very friendly ducks. One of them tried to stand on my shoe but fell off, when I was busy shooting the one in the pics. Quick edit, LR5, RAW, minor adjustments and a few local (clarity, sharpness, nothing fancy...). The BW is Nik.

Yes, it was in Roxas Boulevard. I concur, it's my favorite fruit.

It's a good lesson: Workflow needs to match output. I use different screen brightnesses depending on if my final output is print or screen. And I often do a first process in Aperture at full screen (dark), and then go back through the selects on a final pass in windowed mode with a whitish background... for the exact reason you're describing. I also have to be careful about ambient light in the room when processing.

This is all on a hardware calibrated monitor, btw.

Here's my first attempt at focus stacking. 235 images using the intervalometer on the X-T1. Images were shot at a 2 second interval. Clouds were moving quite fast so I may want to try a 1 second interval for comparison. Still, an interesting result.

Just curious. Why would you need that many images for a focus stack on a scene like this?. There should be adequate depth of field here in one shot....maybe two if you were picky. I've seen ultra close macro shots at 5x magnification that only use 100 shots. Also, how did you move focus accurately with a 2 second delay?

The purpose was not for depth of field but to capture the moving clouds across the sky. I had read about the work of Matt Malloy and wanted to try the technique for myself. See http://matt-molloy.artistwebsites.com/ He has some pretty cool images using this technique. I can imagine that the number of images can vary greatly as can the frequency of shots taken depending on the scene. Basically, I just selected a bunch of images and processed through a script in PSCS.

Ok. Not really focus stacking then (that's specifically stacking images for increased depth of field with a moving focus point). Stacking images for motion works pretty well at night like this, but the intervalometer is going to cause issues (like the stutters you see here, which you may like, but I personally think looks like an error, but that's me) because of the huge delay between exposures. Better (again, in my opinion) to pick up a nice thick ND filter to enable a minimum of 30 second exposures, then stack if you want longer (I have a 10 stop and 3 stop which allows for 2-5 minute exposures in daylight, which I've done and I prefer to stacking...for longer, I'd stack). The key is to have the vast majority of the image made up of actual exposure time. If you're shooting without NDs and stacking every two seconds, you're only capturing a very small fraction of the actual time and movement and you won't get good results.

Also, to avoid stacking delays at all (since the X-T1 requires a minimum of 1 second between exposures) pick up a remote release, set it to continuous shooting and lock the button down. I recommend the Vello RS-C1II remote...it's made ostensibly for Canon, but works with any camera that can use the mini sub (mic) port for a remote release, and the Fujis work great this way. It's flawless on my X-T1, and it costs a fraction of what the Fuji RR-90 costs. I reviewed it here: http://admiringlight.com/blog/mini-review-vello-rs-c1ii-remote-release-fuji-x-t1/

In fact, I just ordered the Vello-C1II remote the other day based on your review. It should arrive on Tuesday (love Amazon Prime). Can't beat the cost! I agree with all you are saying and this was just a test more to run and play with the PSCS script as well as seeing a result. Thanks for the reminder to set to continuous shooting too. It will be fun to continue to explore this . . .

Yeah, for the cost it's a no-brainer. It seems well built and the wire is nice and thick, so it should resist damage pretty well, but of course one never knows how durable some of these things are when used over the long haul. But frankly, for the cost, I might pick up a spare just in case.
