It's FINALLY stopped raining, at least until tomorrow.

learned something new today about how to make more realistic looking HDR than the silly presets it contains. I've posted these images before, but not processed like this (32bit files through camera RAW)





What is the technique? Care to share?


I let Gavin Hoey show you the process, because it's truly non-intuitive until somebody shows you how to use the 32-bit process. You export an ugly 32bit file to TIFF and open that into camera raw where you do the actual adjusting

Very nice clouds. I sense a local adjustment brush was involved on the highlights. Red filter conversion?

A trio of photos from two days ago, taken with the 200 f/4 Q.C. AI'd which has actually been removed from the camera and is not in the camera bag. Now all I have to do is get out and shoot...




Wonderful image Curtis. With all the great talent on this thread at taking flower images, the FM WA is custom tailored for this group!

What wonderful postings and images this past week. I've only popped in here and there and am now too far behind to want to catch up on commenting, but I'll comment on the most recent pics (like last couple of pages)

Nice nightime panoramic with Nikki, Ben.
Leighton, the B+W after the rain stopped is gorgeous. Super lighting on the cloud.
Phillipe, I enjoyed the two "Sisters" images. Nicely done!

Greetings all! I enjoy all your great contribution to the thread with the sorrow that I have no time to join the party... at least not for now In ten days I am scheduled for my hip replacement surgery and lot of things needs to be done in advance, both on my private and my professional life. I just wanted to greet you all, to congrats you for the unbelievable quality of the images. Keep them coming and remember that someone here is watching you

Oh... and another reason to stop... Curtis, the cost of properties in Romania is quite down at this time and there are people like Charles, the former husband of Lady Di who are in love for the old rural area, especially in Transylvania, purchasing properties there... You and Sue can have a great experience moving here... the speed of internet is higher and the photographic opportunities are very rich... Also, if you decide to move here I promise to share with you the use of my beloved Noct

Where were these taken at LZ?

They remind me of the shore line around the little town of Cassis on the Med. that I visited 20 years ago while attending a technical conference in Marseille . . .

I think there needs to be a poll started as to where Curtis should move to . . .

OK, I was fine with Transylvania - but the Shenandoah Valley works for me too - anywhere but Sydney!
