aglake #3: Autumn in New England

This picture was taken with my PowerShot G16 about four months after I got it; I was just learning how to use an advanced camera. It also finishes up the sequence of pictures:

  • aglake #1 was taken with my 80D
  • aglake #2 was taken with my G5X
  • aglake #3 was taken with my G16 (which, unfortunately, is defunct)

To finish off, this picture was taken with a PowerShot A530, my first Canon digital camera.  (My first Canon camera was an EF from 1978 - which still works.)

👍 Nice capture, but on my display looks overexposed, and colors flat.

Per the image's EXIF you edited the image in GIMP.

Due to liking the image I did some quick tweaks to recover the highlights, adjust colors vibrance, and a little USM.

Cheers,
Jon

I do like what you have done with this.  I actually spent some time doing something similar to what you did here on a different shot of the same tree and house.  That's what I was going to submit but, at the last minute, I thought that the tree framing the door made a better picture.  I should have gone back and redone this picture the way you did ... but I didn't.  Your version is much better than mine.

One of the themes that I based my submissions around is one picture from each of my cameras so it was important to pick one that came from my G16.  I should have been more careful in my selection but life intervened and I wanted to get that picture in.

I actually do most of my editing in On1 but I do a final resize and Jepg parameter adjustments in GIMP before posting.  That's why the EXIF says GIMP; it doesn't reflect the actual processing that I do on my image files.

Re: aglake Exhibit: For completeness

Just to complete my list of cameras, here is a scan of a picture taken with my EF.

Since I only recently picked it up again after 40 years or so, I'm still trying to work on my focusing skills.  Also, I'm not sure how accurate the metering is.  The battery that the camera uses is no longer available.  The current replacement is not quite the same voltage and so may affect the actual metering.

Thanks.

Posted merely as a different version; I like landscapes, flowers, etc, with bright colors via using mostly the "Enhance" rather than "Saturation", add contrast and sharpness to tastes.

For JPG images I used Photoshop Elements via the "Open in RAW", and use the
Neat Image Adobe add-on for Noise Reduction and Sharpening.

I mainly shoot RAW; for PP I use DxO PhotoLab and DxO ViewPoint for perspective/ volume corrections.

,.. I do a final resize and Jepg parameter adjustments in GIMP before posting. ...

I use FastStone Image Viewer to do the same tasks; does not change the EXIF data.  Small/ light app.

Cheers,
Jon
