  • +1. The simple fact is that there is a tendency to peer further into the photo looking for the extra detail and that's when you start to see what you couldn't see before and you may not like what ...
  • Keep in mind that there is a difference between 'camera profiles' and reading the 'camera settings'. My understanding is that only Nikon software can read the 'camera settings'. regards
  • I don't use C1 but regardless I like to have full control. So I convert files and then open Photomatix and do everything one step at a time. I'm not so sure about 'automating' things too much as ...

    I forgot to say that in and around Charleston are a number of galleries and stores that sell prints. I'm sure many of them are looking for new 'artists'. regards

    Thanks. I love Savannah and Charleston. So many photo ops and such a great place to get the creative juices running. I use a combination of HDR/Photomatix and Paint Shop Pro for the bulk of my ...
  • I would suggest working on your compositions as a first step. 'Technical' issues can mostly be addressed in pp. But you need a starting point and having a 'technically' excellent photo wont ...

    I sell a lot of prints but not via the web. Depending on your subject matter I would be looking for a location that will display and sell your photos for you. In my case I specialise on subject ...
  • One often over looked location is Mystic. Lots of creative ideas there. regards
  • Nice set Paul. Getting out of bed early is not my forte! We were there just over a months ago. Just out side the parks are many side roads that most folks never venture onto. For instance the west ...
  • Started the 'hobby' with Pentax. Then used a Canon for my foray into professional work. Along came digital and a Kodak. Once the Kodak failed I swapped to Fuji. 3 Fuji's later I swapped to Nikon. W ...
  • The whole subject is very subjective. So many elements and variations that I doubt there is one sold conclusion to be made that will satisfy everyone. Some folks only see photography as an exact ...
  • Replied in just a rant
    No real reason. Just for fun. Without the 'hdr' element it's not a note worthy photo IMHO. regards
  • There are millions of photos of the opera house. But I think your first one is very well done. I wouldn't change a thing with it. Well done. regards
  • Replied in Weather to HDR
    I like the pictures a lot. Nice captures and pp. Your problem is you mentioned 'HDR' and as soon as you do that it's all downhill from there with 'unrealistic' comments. For sure hdr can 'kill' a ...

    If you're going to Gunnison make sure you do the drive on highway 92. Great bike road. Great photo road. regards

    FWIW here's a quick edit of the photo I took. I was looking for something interesting and colourful. (Yes it's a 3 bracket HDR). Not great but interesting. Note I wasn't even in front of the store. ...
  • Ok first off I never use raws/nefs so I'm in the dark somewhat. Now I just opened a single nef file and yes it took me straight to tomemapping with the the Exposure Fusion greyed out. If I open a ...
  • Normally something in the foreground is a good thing. But I think in this case it's too powerful. Try cropping the wall out and bringing the horizon down to the one third point and see if you like ...
  • Sorry but now I'm confused. I only ever use tiffs in Photomatix and have never had any issues and I use Detail enhancer a lot. regards
  • I would suggest an external monitor. Your i5 should do ok. Then download one of the free programs. Once you have a feel of want you want to do then consider buying a program. Not that you need to ...
