| p.1 #12 · Happy New Year - Sunrise at Night Watchman (Zion NP) |
Thank you guys for the kind words. Zion is a magical place with every turn and corner presenting opportunities for great photos. The sunrise at Night Watchman presented me an opportunity to do something a little different for a oft photographed icon. To those who have not been to Zion, I say go there as soon as you can.
to ninhja... Here is what Jim Fox advised me on another thread.
Also, for reducing the D800 files I have found I had to make 2 changes to how I reduce mine from how I used to reduce my D700 or D7000 files. On Image Size in Photoshop, the first thing I do is just change the Resolution from 300 to 72, and very importantly, Instead of the default "Bicubic Automatic" I change it to "Bicubic (best for smooth gradiants)". I have found that helps the image not to get some of the small sharp edges that can be in an image from getting so overly sharp looking. Then, I open up the Image Size option again, this time reducing the size of the image down to 800px on it's wide side. Again I change the default "Bicubic Automatic" to be "Bicubic (best for smooth gradiants)". I then go to Unsharp Mask, and do a very slight sharpening, usually only from 25 to 35 depending on the shot. Have the image at 100% at this point on your screen so you can see how much for that final sharpening for the web.
