Nice images

For those who care about the details, the first two shots were made with the excellent M.Zuiko 45mm f/1.8 in shutter priority mode, forcing a shutter speed of 1/400s to freeze action. The two last shots were both made using a Konica Hexanon 200mm f/4. My main objective was to get a bit more practice with long manual-focus tele lenses under the belt. I'll need plenty of that when a M42 adapter arrives and I'll be taking on a Russian "Rubinar 8/500" mirror reflex.

Thanks all for the kind comments! I didn't have much time to do individual comments this week, but I did scroll through the posts. The standard here is getting higher & higher!

Wormsmeat, I must admit to bumping the vibrance slider a bit for the first few. Also had a bit of trouble handling the intense colors captured. I decided I do like the "blueness", that's why the vibrance bump. It's not for everyone, indeed!

Stan, I too enjoy photographing in the blue hour much, but it is definitely hard to get out there for a family man A couple more:

Very nice work. Though I'm not really sure about the thick borders. Below are my favorites:

Re: Seeing how much you all love HDR (not)...
In reply to Wormsmeat, Apr 16, 2012

Very strong image. I actually think the processing adds a bit of character here, which is rare for me, as I'm not a fan of tone mapping.

Again, well processed. Love the delicate reflections ..

Great expression.

In reply to SLOtographer, Apr 16, 2012

I like the atmosphere captured in these a lot, Stan. The only thing that puts me back a bit are the colors. Honestly, I don't know how to handle it in such conditions myself. But this is an area (color manipulation) that I think Bob Tullis does so well ..

Re: Mixed bag - Thank you
In reply to justpictures, Apr 16, 2012

I thank you all for your kind and encouraging comments. It is very important for me to get some objective feedback. It will certainly be an incentive to try harder as there is definitely always room for improvement. As to the borders: I am going to post my pictures again without them from now on. This will also retain the EXIF data which the print function in Lightroom suppresses. Thanks again.

Stan, that first shot is 'being there', an excellent conveyance of the atmosphere. Love it.

My wife, with her fear of deep water, was freaked out by the wave (I showed it to her specifically for that reason). That's a high compliment.
