On Processing Techniques: Selective Desaturation challenge (9 comments in total)
In reply to:

gfa5775: Pretty sad looking entries. Like the example, I would interpret desaturation as desaturating color channels on the entire photo which can create a unique look, most of these are basic selective coloring of objects and a lot of great example why you would never want to use this cheesy gimmick.

If you can not under the difference between de-saturating color channels like blue over the entire image like the example, (and you could just fade certain colors), verses de-saturating everything but a specific object (selective coloring), it is pointless going any farther.

This is a hobby, I am not a pro, but just looking at the example should show you something or try doing some research instead of looking a misguided entries.

From what I've notice, when the entries are off target, so is the voting. You are obviously one of them...

How about filling it half full of water and adding a bit of interest? (or just stick to P&S cameras and the family album...)

What are you positioning and exposing for, the subject, the clouds or Nikon and Sony?

Get real, they are using a kit lens and what you see are the limitations of that lens.

My old 7D with the version I - 70-200L IS takes much-MUCH better photos at a couple frames a second less. Lets see what this can do with some serious glass AND someone who knows how to use it.

I like the textures, could use a touch more contrast or stronger sidelight to bring it out with shadow.

On In & Out of Focus challenge (4 comments in total)

This looks like an interesting technique to try sometime when I find the right subject material. Off hand it appears only 2 of the 5 are within the guidelines, 40%?

The little diiference you see could easily be due to a good breeze affecting one tree more than another and this is a slightly slower shutter anyway.

Hi Barb,
Can you clarify the minimum time, is it 25 seconds or .25 seconds as in 1/4 second? It is hard to tell if the decimal point is for the min abbreviation or meant as a fraction.
Thanks

Elyahu: It would be a very brave or foolish man who went anywhere near his partner's handbag.

Even with permission when she tells you to go get something a chill runs down my back...
