G1X - A few from Tasmania - Part I
7 months ago

Hi,

I recently spent 16 days in Tasmania with my teenage kids.  It's beautiful and one of those places where you only have to bump your camera on a tree and it'll take a great shot no matter where it's pointing....  I took far too many, but have posted a few here for your viewing.   (These are from the first week - the plan is to post a few from other areas of the State in a later post).

I left my DSLR at home and took my G1X.  They're handheld jpegs SOOC except for some mostly minor cropping and the occasional straightening of water horizons.  I tend to shoot with contrast control on 200 on bright days to minimise highlight clipping.  C&C welcome.    I still think the G1X is great travel camera - I don't think there's anything else that quite fills the same niche.

Regards, Rod

Beautiful Work !

Good eye for the shots you took. I suspect that the first four could have a lot more impact with a little contrast. They look great even if a little flat for me.

I agree that the shots taken are great - however a little more subtle contrast applied will just give that little more oomph and punch to the images.

Thanks to both of you.  I take your point about the contrast.  Like I said, these were SOOC and I quite often use the contrast control on the G1X to avoid it clipping highlights.  It also seems to deliver better prints (when I do actually print them) but I agree that they could do with a touch more for display on screen.  I guess it just reflects the different dynamic range of print versus screen viewing.

Thanks again.

Cheers, Rod

Hope you don't mind Rod, but I thought I'd try and give the lighthouse one a boost. My basic PS skills here involved the auto button and graduated filter lastly a bit of sharpening up.
