  • It's FOV that changes with sensor size. Aperture is just the ratio of the effective opening to the focal length, i.e. 1:2 and remains constant with focal length regardless of sensor size (a 50mm ...
  • Replied in Seascapes
    I don't see why you go to all that trouble to blur the sea with a long exposure if you're just going to push the contrast and effectively over-sharpen it again.
  • Yep, that performs a repeatable and predictable action, if it wasn't consistent it would be useless. The camera always lies, it will never record an image in the way you see it, and will seldom ...
  • First they're all taken on an overcast day. You will not produce the same spectacular shots you see unless you wait for the same spectacular conditions. Second you may've gotten close to your ...
  • I agree. Play around yourself. The main points are; the sky needs to be brighter and hold slightly less contrast than the foreground, and you need to maintain the impression of shadow on the rocks ...
  • Replied in BW Landscape
    Please excuse the "rough and ready" approach (both could use some fine tuning) as my right index finger still has a number of stitches (probably explains me being a little verbose on these forums ...
  • It also completely fails to take into account how focal length and distance to the subject effect both depth of field and motion blur. Two factors that have a greater effect on both than camera ...
  • I like the first two. With the bridges I like the way you have kept the impression of light and depth. Don't be tempted to darken the shadows as all you will do is "remove light". It is an ...
  • Good use of composition, but there is too much foreground in them all. All it does is tell the viewer that the main point of interest is further away.
  • Replied in BW Landscape
    I'll be honest about these two. This first one is shot in the middle of the day with the sun overhead and in front of you. This is easy to see because of the way the clouds are lit. I know by ...
  • Commented on alireza in the A flower challenge

    8 votes of 5? LOL

  • Err... Subtractive colour where you start with white and add pigments to subtract the wavelengths so the colour with the properties you want is displayed, just like a piece of glossy printer paper. ...
  • Replied in exageration?
    It increases contrast. By doing this on a global level you achieve it by expanding the middle tones in an image. You very much flatten the effect of relative differences in local contrast in ...
  • Of course you are absolutely correct, but I'm well aware of this and it is part of the point I'm making. Colour is most definitely a relative effect. You can do many things to make an image appear ...
  • Then I don't think you understand colour. You make blue by subtracting the ability of the paper to reflect green and red, make it lighter (tint) by putting less on the paper (more white) and ...
  • It's always fascinated me, and I must admit I have spent a fair time (and still do) exploring and understanding it. There is real magic in it and it comes thus: Take a piece of glossy photo paper ...
  • Exactly, but my point is that if you don't understand the dynamics that create the impression you want how are you going to create or enhance it in post? How do you create and preserve the ...
  • Any artist will first observe, they will know and understand what they see and how they will translate this to an image in their chosen medium. They will also understand their chosen medium and ...
  • Yes your argument has some merit, but as you introduce art... There is a universal visual language that has it's basics rooted in the entire animal kingdom (there are universal signals of danger ...
  • Many thanks for the comments. I am indeed wanting to get back out there and am keeping a close eye on the weather.  :-)
