Great captures Louise

Hi,

Nice shots. That lens is a lemon and I am a tomato

Did you use a tripod or were these handheld? just curious. that lighthouse is very beautifull, very nice composition with the sand and the bushes.

It is a brute, but I need to attach it more often!!

Hand held, I hate tripods! VR was on. Thanks for the comments. I'm eager to do my first wedding with the S5 but it isn't until May!!

Sure thing Peter. My favourite shooting mode seems to be F1c so that is how I usually shoot. 70mm for the lighthouse shot. ISO 100, f4.5 1/1000 and to quote Gary, 'lens cap off' lol

Dalvay Inn photo was ISO 100 focal length 120mm. Actually this was in Std film mode 400dr to keep the detail in both the ice and the shadows on the building. Sharpness hard, contrast hard, tone a bit hard, lens cap off

hand held....I hate tripods...or maybe I just have a sucky tripod???

I have to add that the S5 makes me WANT to take pictures!! So fun!

I did tweak these a tad in PS. Sharpened a bit and dodged/burned the clouds. As good as the images are straight out of the camera I still think as a pro they are 'fabulous' after a couple minutes in PS. S5 rocks!

Re: S5 landscapes

Hi Louise,

Thanks for posting these great images! It's been a few years since I've been to PEI, but they brought a lot of memories rushing back!

If it's not too much trouble, would you be able to email me the original unedited versions of these two images or post them in this thread--you can access my email by clicking on my name. I'm very close to buying this camera, but I still have a few reservations concerning artifacts.

Thanks again--I've been following your posts since you received the camera. I first heard about you when you won your first Fuji Outstanding Achievement Award. Keep up the great work!

Landscape Louise, that's her name!

Way to go, Louise. All are great, but that first lighthouse shot is practically astonishing in its beauty. It's got to be marketable!

Pefrect Composition

The images are crisp, clear and perfectly exposed... I'm sure this was more you then the camera....but the camera/lens helped.

The composition however is spot on perfect, especially on the lighhouse images... that can only be credited to your great eye.

Thanks for posting
Kerry

Re: S5 landscapes

Wow those are beautiful Louise, If its Ok I'd like to print one ? (since I'm still waiting for mine) I think #1 is my favorite but the wife likes #2. We have never been there but will take tour to your side of the country as soon as time (retirement for my wife) allows.
Thanks for posting.

Best regards, Ed.

Re: S5 landscapes

Louise:

As always your pictures amaze me! You are truly talented !

I have 1 question on the full size jpeg's you shoot. Are you shooting them in medium or large? Looks like medium to me and just curious if this is how you always shoot them?

Thanks
Dave

Re: S5 landscapes

the images are lovely. The lighthouse is very sweet and your photographic talents are obvious.

The 70 - 200 VR is a wonderful lens.

But I'm not so convinced with the image resolution. I have seen crispier images coming out of the D200. HO hum ho hum....still tempted though.

Re: Original unedited files

Hi Louise

Since you posted a photo of it, I gotta comment on a very lovely time I had at the Dalvay Inn with my new wife a few years ago. I'm from Toronto. Aaaaah the Dalvay....wonderful 19th century seafaring atmosphere, superb food, a ghost or two. The S5 may rock but so does Prince Edward Island. Highly recommended to all!

Re: S5 landscapes

Thanks Dave,

They are shot medium. Then I interpolate in PS. I don't see a real advantage to shoot 12mp in the camera.

I have 1 question on the full size jpeg's you shoot. Are you
shooting them in medium or large? Looks like medium to me and just
curious if this is how you always shoot them?

Thanks
Dave

Re: Original unedited files

Hi Fred,

Yes, Dalvay is a wonderful spot....I prefer the outside to the inside though! Find it a little dark inside (as least for photos!) but the guest rooms are lovely. The owners are wonderful. I shoot a few weddings that take place on those grounds yearly.

Glad you enjoyed your stay on PEI. It's a great place to live!

Sure as long as you are just using it for your own personal purposes. Thanks for the nice comments.

Re: S5 landscapes

Hi Babe,

Thanks for the nice comments. I'd love to see a similar image from the D200....I guess I just find these S5 files are plenty sharp.

Maybe if it wasn't windy and freezing and I used a tripod it would be just a smidge sharper but my guess is these will print big just fine.

But I'm not so convinced with the image resolution. I have seen
crispier images coming out of the D200. HO hum ho hum....still
tempted though.
