Jose, Leighton, Georg, Scott, Philippe and Peter, thanks for the kind comments.

Rafael, wonderful shots from the Elfin Forest, especially the "car" shots.

Samy, I like your b&w's la mode de Philippe.

Ronny, beautiful tulips and "lookout" is a great shot.

Curtis, love the Magnolia flower.

Peter, beautiful stacked macros.

Leighton, wonderful choice of natural lighting in the bare branches and "ray of light" shots.

Ray in Ohio, beautiful flowers with the 55/2.8.

Georg, I really like the dogs, the unfolding tulip and the patinaed door.

Ron, great looking dog!

Jose, beautiful epiphytes shots.

Chuong, wonderful lighting in the portraits of your wide awake son.

Scott, really like the contrast and framing of the tulips and stonework.

Peter, beautiful panos.

Markout, "Bizarro" is a very cool b&w.

Mark, love the creek bokeh shot. Glad to hear James is bouncing back.

Philip, looks like Super Margot is bouncing back too! I like the look of the wall and backboards shot.

Jorge, very cool image of the tractor and its "rear end of a pickup" trailer.

Philippe, very nice one from Provence.

Kevin, great old cameras!

Georg and Philippe, really fine architectural shots.

Mark, good news about your son. I like the conceprt of the creek with the long lens.

Leighton, I like your rainy day output. espcially the single flower lit by the ray of light:
http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/929565/2869#11564354

Rafael, the 5cm does seem to have a very unique signature look. Nice jopb with picking the subjects to show it off well, I like the red truck.

Laura, from my days in the wet B+W darkroom, wear gloves or use tongs! In our high school days we just stuck our hands in the chemicals, and I sometimes think I still have some skin issues from that time.

Georg,

and finally thanks for the knid comments on the flower freelens effort - it was the first time I tried it (really just trying to angle the plane of focus a little) and I'm probably both too cheap and too lazy to make use of a TS lens that some of you here make me long for at times.

Ray

I got out for a little bit last night after the rain, around our complex. Using the D600 and the 16mm 3.5. I loved this lens on my D7000 and I think I love it as much on the D600.

I like it Ray, very moody. Personally, the only thing I would do is lighten up the left side of his face ever-so-lightly with the adjustment brush in LR. Other than that I wouldn't do any other thing.

This kind of image is why I shoot raw exclusively now. no matter what I mess up, I can revert to the original without any damage to the file.

I took the liberty to tweak him just to illustrate what I mean. I can take it down if you'd like.

Confessions of a post processing addict. My "Ray of Light" image was NOT natural light. It was done with the new radial filter in LR5. But thanks for the kind comments.

Here's the original:


TLW_2155-3 by Leighton W, on Flickr

And the processed one once again:


Ray of Light-180/2.8 ED AIS by Leighton W, on Flickr

Curtis, is there a twelve step program for someone like me?

The only thing I find odd about the image is the Budweiser sign behind the performer, looks almost solarized... Other than that, I like both! (I can't get my brain around using the adjustment brush in ACR, I always wait until I pull the image into PS)

Thanks Kevin. Actually the sign is something I really liked about the image but I guess I should lower exposure on the part where the spotlight hits it. Thank you for the suggestion

How do you normally do that? Do you use the burn tool or some other way? I have in the past used an additional background layer that I have dropped the exposure down a stop or two, then use a mask to bring back the object in the photo back.

With lightroom you can use the brush to go over selected areas in the photo and make changes just to those selected areas. This process offers the whole host of effects. Thats what I love about lightroom. You can make all of the changes you wish and never have to use masks with layers because the original photo is never affected. By the way the brush has a built in mask that you can adjust in size.

Georg, Phillippe, Ray - all really good shots. I love the "synchronicity" of this thread whereby we tend to see and then follow and build......

An 11 shot pano from the Cape Town gardens area showing, on the left, Devil's Peak, and of course Table Mountain with the beginnings of it's famed "tablecloth". The pimple on the top right is the cable car station.
