What is ETTR? To many abbreviations.


It means expose to the right. It's the idea of making use of the fact that digital sensors capture more data in the brighter areas of the image (the horizontal axis of the histogram is in logarithmic scale), trying to expose the image as much as possible without blowing the highlights to get the maximum amount of data in the raw file.

Nice image! Is it just me or does the Sigma render ripples and waves in an incredible manner. I've noticed it in a few other images and yours really capture it well.

Evening storm clouds walking around after work. Really like the BW's out of DPM's. Looking forward to trying them at my favorites locations in the right conditions.

Juan, much nicer in bigger sizes! Would like to know how the B&W one is in color, I like the clouds but may be lesser nice light on the city.

BTW May be something for the HDR images thread at 1900 wide or something

Thanks for your comment. Here is the color version. Your colours of Cuba are beautiful

Thank yoy, Juan!

That's nice as well although the clouds are better in B&W.
Just a question of giving the clouds an extra boost in PP, I think.

You can see the rain at sea.






Low tide, time to look for mussels.






View on Le Treport and Mers les Bains.
