Plenty of dynamic range to play with.
Link to A7 RAW

webisweb, what camera? I seem not to be able to open the raw.
snapsy, yours looks really classic. Like it.

ok, my software may be a bit behind?

here is the screenshot of how I processed the white out image.
Quite simple with Capture One.







and here is my take at the Brussels Lane







I darkend the sky quite a bit with a rather rough mask (couldn't be bothered to do it better) and made some local adjustements for the glowing parts to enhance them, and addet some saturation overall.

Version 7.1.6 works great with A7 files...

you are right, it just didn't download properly. Tried again.

I attempted some kind of high key look.

My take on Brussels Lane: Cinematic with shallow DoF.

It would be better to live for it. Once we have good equipment, travelling is one of the better ways to spend money on photography. I should live that motto more often...

I just (in January) started to use Lightroom ==> I'm quite novice with it. I was few weeks ago shooting in Crete. I skrewed up and shoot almost all HDRs with 2EV bracketing, which makes the shots useless, when I feed them to HDR-software they turn out to awful candystore colors + awful haloes. However I was happy to find that Sony A7r and A7 have so huge dynamic range, compared to 5DmkII what I'm used to, that all data I need is in single exposure. But in practice I have quite a lot of difficulties of extracting all detail correctly to single TIFF-file. So I would appreciate if people with more experience of Lightroom would take a look at the RAW and see can it be done or do I just need to ditch the files.


I did my best with this one, but I'm not 100% happy to results, too much "HDR look" and hillside&trees on right don't look crispy enough, also sky is little lifeless (I tuned blue minutes and never got it to really nice). Only thing, which looks correct are the climmering rocks on far right, and I'm pretty happy how they look:

Really nice shot Samuli!

I did some LR adjustements

here is my attempt:



to be honest I liked the way you processed your 5dII images quite bit better, than your recent images with the A7, but I am sure you will find your way

not seen in the screen: minor local adjustments and the use of adobes landscape profile.

Sure, blame it on the processing

Nonetheless I agree with your observation.

Well from Samuli's past images we know that it isn't the photographer and from my personal experience I know that the A7 is a really capable camera so I think PP is to blame ;-)

Nicolas, liked your version. Left side rocks/cliff look really good. Can you please share "recipe" how you did it?

Phillip, quite weird colors, the Landscape profile is like turning vibrance and saturation both to +50, combined to 6000K & +24 WB makes colors weird.


And yes, I really struggle with A7/A7r images. These cameras are like "shiny plastic or dull", and I find it hard to produce realism. Looking images in A7/A7r Image thread it seems I'm not alone with this issue. But there has also been good neutral realistic images, so cameras are capable of delivering. Lightroom standard profiles give quite weird images, and profiling at shooting location improves situation, but won't solve issues completely. Hopefully I'll learn before 2014 shooting season really starts.

I may have to go back to Apple Aperture, just checked Crete 5DmkII images and it's really hard to make them look good even I shoot only with ZE 2/135. 5DmkII with Apple Aperture is really easy on post processing; adjust black level and WB and you are done - I have rarely ever done anything else. Now I tried million different things in Lightroom and could not make images look good. Would feel "safer" with Lightroom, as I'm not sure will Apple Aperture be there 5 years from now, and converting image library from program to another is always enormous job.

PS. New equipment also affects shooting; I was quite frustrated in Crete as every time I setup tripod and get FE55 with A7r from camera bag "Damn, again too close, let's move few meters back" as I setup tripod without camera when shooting with normal lens but keep forgetting that FE55 is realllllly long for normal lens.

Okay, I overdid it, for my own images I never use this profile. Second attempt, but I would be surprised if you liked the colors this time.

I haven't used the 5dII a lot but I think the files needed less adjustments.

Colors are important to me, but I don't care too much about color accuracy. I edit on the cheapest (140) non TN panel I could find.

I always found it your 5dII images stood out because of their realism.

Maybe you could post Aperture Images and we will try to replicate your results in LR.
