Autumn Fall KP and FA 77
14

Had to keep up with the Joneses around here and get some Fall Color shots going.  I have still been battling with the FA 77 to find the sweet spots with it, it isn't the best focusing lens for me yet, I miss focus a bit with it still while learning it.  But when it hits, it does its magic.

LAST ROSE OF SUMMER

Very nice pics, Mike. Did you do some special processing on the ones with your daughter? To me, the have a interesting, muted look.

I underexposed and used a low tone curve with the adobe Lightroom portrait color profile, that and it was a very grey and overcast day.

Thanks for the kind words, it is a preset I have made up, but getting WB nailed - and I do mean nailed, is key

Nice shots particularly of your daughter.  Those shots (daughter) are priceless.

No worries, I just cropped it for the printer paper I currently am using, so 5x7 it was.

Hi Mike,

I like you'r photo's very much. You like to put the subject in the middle and it shows well.

A little notice, is the speed imo the iso can be lower but for the KP it is no problem

Thanks for showing

Cheers

Dick
