I would develop that one more like this - but it is a very tough image!

Here's another take, looking for crunch which is what my imaginary presence would like to replicate.

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


Thank you, here are the adjustments I made in Lightroom, Then I exported it to Photoshop where I used Tony Kuyper's web-sharpening actions.

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.

Phillip


Even though, you twos' images looks really great to me, reading people liike Philip and Samuli etc who with strong post process skill struggle with color of camera confirm that sensor profile indeed make difference, especially for whom trying to achieve fidelity in image.

I am glad not all can accept that "all camera are behave the same in digital age as long as you calibrate it, proof it" especially for people sensitive with color. some camera is just better, some sucks.

If shooting in studio with ample light under consistent WB, I agree the issue is really easy to deal with. but not landscape, everyday images under all light condition.

Just saying.

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.

Samuli


Samuli, I enjoy your A7 images, If your goal is matching your 5DII images, I feel you can try turning down saturation (especially green), contrast, or clarity a little bit. You might need negative slider input in those given profile. This is just gross feeling between your 5DII and A7 images. But generally speaking, I don't feel they are that different. and enjoy the way it is. I know many people mentioned this to you already since you start post in A7 thread. People tend to be reluctant to do/see any change, especially in color, (just like this case, we all have your 5DII images in mind ) even though, there is no right or wrong: this can be seen in M9 vs M240 wild debate on internet.

My 2 cents. and in no way my PP skill can be close to yours or people who comment your A7 images. so please don't take it as offense to you or people who comment your A7 and 5DII results

Here are my takes on the two recent images, also a first time post in this thread. All comments are most welcome. These are both done in Aperture.

Thanks for all the feedback! I have to take few days break, I'm getting extreme annoyed on all the damn slider pulling and pushing. Sony is definitely breaking my "max 20s/image for post processing"-rule...

Very difficult image, Samuli. To keep the magenta, green and yellow out of the skies while still managing a nice green and neutral rocks required a lot of channel work in LR5, and I am not completely happy with the result, nor with the sharpening, which I had to back off quite a bit from my usual routine. That 135/2 is really something!

I guess there was a lot of blue from the altitude and big sky, but also some yellow, perhaps it was late in the day? I might have to back off on the greens a bit to get a more natural image, perhaps also on the punchiness via Contrast and Clarity.

This is such an awesome topic. Once I get enough posts to join the buy and upload I'll try as well.

Amazing how much attention gear gets over processing technique in the digital age. Sure, its such a great matter of preference but it skillful processing can help ones photography immensly it seems...maybe moreso than even upgrading a generation in camera gear haha.

Awesome work.

I guess that happened faster than I thought Anyway, it was fun to try one of these...made me realize I still have a lot more practice to do to be more efficient haha... I edited this in lightroom and combined two exposures in PS...not sure if it was advantageous at all to do it like that and I guess lightroom would have been more than sufficient but its hard for me to give up all the control of photoshop... I am still trying to figure out sharpening too...what do you think?

Very hard image, the clouds especially seem to give PhotoNinja fits, only using PN this is as best I can do...
Huge amount of detail would probably have been easier to work with if exposed at -1EV seeing one can usually get plenty out of the shadows with the sony raws & highlights are just harder to work with.

So many nice images here!

My take on a couple of recent ones. I decided on a colder theme for
the snowy one, and experimented with colour and b/w renderings
of the bridge. I tried to simulate film like look in the bridge picture.

Retried this one for a little more punch: you can see how bored I was without work today haha.

With any luck finding out how to upload a raw file I'll post one for fun in a bit.

I posted an image here a here a while ago and I was curious what everyone could make out of it.

Here's what I did with it but I'm curious how others would see it.

Hello everyone, I watch everyday the A7/r image thread, and I'm really stunned by what I can see here. I wanted to post some of my photos, but first I'd like to have some advice on post processing.
I'm a beginner, but want to learn as much as I can, and as I'm beginning to get a grasp on how to take a picture with my A7, I must say I'm a bit overwhelmed by Lightroom. I bought it nearly in the same time I bought my A7, I'm beginning to see what does what, but fact is I'd like to see what experimented users can do with a photo.

So here is an exemple :





_DSC2466.jpg par zorak zoran, sur Flickr

As you can see if you pixel peep, photo is nice, but far from perfect, and blurry.
So if someone is kind enough to try his skills on it, and share the results and settings, would help me a lot understanding how to use the program.
Here's the link to the raw :

Hello I'm new here as well but I'll welcome you anyway!Lightroom seems very overwhelming at first but it actually isn't all that complicated once you get the hang of it. Maybe take a look at a basic run through of a typical workflow here~
here

I found this one helpful as I am a bit new to lightroom myself.

As for editing your picture it would help to upload a raw file as there is not all that much to be done with a jpg from flickr. If you are looking to host a file it seems dropbox works well and its free.

edit: after looking at the full size jpeg it seems that it is indeed soft, but not in a way that lightroom or photoshop will fix all that well. Other than that I really reccomend checking out the link for basic lightroom processing tips
