Dylan love the fisheye photo. Very nice conversion to B&W. Is that using the 16mm 3.5?

We had talked about sharing images so that we could develop them as we saw fit. Curtis started this with a Dropbox folder and sent me an image from Bert. Here is the original and my version of it done in LR5.



I like the conversion a lot Leighton.

Thanks.

Dylan - Nice use of what I assume is the 16mm.

Ray - More nice ones from the ranch. Where are the animals?

Bert - Thanks and thanks.

This thread moves!

This is from The Canadian Museum of Nature. Funny, most people take their cameras there to get shots of the exhibits. I spent my time looking for interesting takes on the people looking to get shots of the exhibits.


Great shot, nicely converted to B&W

Ray, thanks for sharing how you processed the earlier image from Circle Bar Ranch. Would you be willing to upload the original unprocessed NEF file to the Dropbox folder? That seems a perfect image to challenge those of us who enjoy playing with post processing. At the moment only Kevin, Bert, Leighton and I have signed on but others are welcome to do so as well. I sent you an invitation but haven't heard back so perhaps you've not signed up for Dropbox yet. It is a great way to share files that are too big for passing along via email. Want to play?

A different perspective of the market, while trying to get this weeks assignment shot. I liked how the women framed the shot while both having similar looking sandals and the same foot up. Other than that, it's not much of an image.

Bert, I love the way you chose to process that image. Clearly, the creative choices we have are pretty extensive given the software available to us. You and Leighton saw different possibilities. Here is my take with a subtle color enhancement followed by a treatment using SEP.

The original...

At 24mm it is hard to pick them out but look close at the second shot and you will see a heron on the left branch

I actually like yours better than mine Curtis, well done. The added grain adds to making it look like an old image.

I received your email but haven't had a chance to set mine up. I would love to upload my photos Curtis but I shoot JPEG and not sure if that qualifies?

I seldom use Shadow and Highlight treatments because it is difficult to get results that don't appear artificial. Lightroom handles exposure adjustments well but I haven't been that satisfied in Photoshop when I use the exposure adjustment. In the color treatment all I did was reduce exposure, reduced the Dark tones and increased Clarity slightly. In the SEP treatment that I did within Photoshop I reduced Brightness and Contrast, increased Structure, applied the Red filter and selected my favorite film the Agfa Pro 100, added faint light vignetting and then a frame. Not rocket science, but fun nonetheless. Thanks Bert for letting us play...

I'm surprised you don't shoot RAW since clearly you enjoy working on images in post. That said, if you can do it, I guess the rest of us can as well. Can you say something about your decision to shoot with in camera JPG processing?

I'm running out so I won't be able to respond immediately... an errand for a friend.

Bunch of lens repair odds and ends here, some of you folks are likely very familiar with those.

Sure that qualifies. The only thing is that you are limited to some adjustments in LR though. Meaning that some sliders simply will not work on jpegs. I'm not sure about other software.

Having said that, and seeing some of your handiwork with your recent images, you are loosing out on a WHOLE lot more by shooting jpeg and not raw. I believe you definitely have the PP'ing talent to go farther. IMHO.

I have always used jpeg and I got used to it. I never really saw the need for the extra size and bother. Perhaps if my photos were for anyone but me I might buy extra hard drives and shoot raw. For now I am content with my work flow and if some sliders don't work I will just have to get better at taking the photos
