  • Hurts my eyes looking at it. :-x You should have placed a descriptive title on it as a warming. Also, I've seen far better work from you. Only my opinion. But.. it's going to take at lest several ...
  • Paul, Yes, I noticed that price on Canson Baryta (17"x22").  This is what prompted my original post: 'Is Hahlnemuhle paper so much better than Canson that it sells for a premium'? As I understand ...
  • Thanks Howard and Mike for your input.
  • Created discussions Canson vs Hahlnemuhle

  • Created discussions 5Ds Dymanic Range
    There is been some discussion regrading Canon's new camera (5Ds) with respect to Dynamic Range.  Looking at the specs of the 5Ds, I'm not seeing a line item for 'Dynamic Range'.  Looking at 5Ds ...
  • For me, it will be a Zeiss Optus 55mm.  I've been looking an excuse to buy the Optus 55mm. Now I've got to figure out how to get it (5Ds R + Optus 55mm) by the wife.  That should not be too hard; ...
  • I've had mine for +2 years. During this +2 year period, my 3880 has gone unused for extended periods due to my 'day job'.  I work what is called a 'rotation schedule' which takes me away from home ...
  • Sal, This is why I was  asking the 'before' or 'after' question. I knew that the Detail 3 method of sharpening was from a different approach.  From the user guide:' ' ....[Detail 3]  can sharpen ...

  • Thanks Sal for your detailed response. l will investigate your recommendation. There is always something to learn.  Learning never stops. Thanks!

  • >Are you intending to up-sample (enlarge) for your output? If so, by how much? Also, what is your main editing program?< Hi Soloryb Yes, I would like to be able to up-sample by 200%.  For post ...
  • Created discussions Output Sharpening Software
    Hi All, I've been using Nik Sharpening Pro for the last the years as an output sharpener for my prints. I've got Topaz Define 3 but I believe that is more for creative sharpening not output sharpening.
  • I'm not sure about banding from using the healing brush but I can see it happening if you're working a 8 bit JPEG. This image in particular was filled with background banding. There is still a bit ...
  • >he has, in the past, mentioned things like "maybe you can help me with my website"< Mike He is asking you for help.  If, in the future, another photog comes along and tells him that the HDR images ...
  • Sorry, I believe I misread the question.  If this stuff is part of a package offering to a client then sure it could sell, clients might love it. On the other hand, you could not market it to ...
  • >Just wondered if you think there is a market for it.< No. There is no market for this stuff.  Yes, you might find a one off buyer here and there; but, a market?  No. Get better at your 'art' and ...
  • No. There is no market. You could give them away as promotional material. Almost anyone can do this, it takes about 15 minutes. This photog is now producing this stuff and she it not yet 3 years old!!
