  • I am fairly comfortable with my file organisation strategy. I don't have massive numbers of files to manage, for example 2018 to date I only took 2,000 images so far. There is a question over ...
  • Yes, I knew my Samsung monitor wouldn't be far out, it was only bluebells displaying slightly purple that had me wanting to calibrate. The original profile was slightly warmer but I am happy with ...
  • I experimented with normal jpeg with my new d800 and was very happy with the files, but now I have decided to shoot 12 bit compressed raw because that gives me about a 30mb file which I can live with.
  • Hi Daniel, I am pretty sure I am in the basic or more common colour space sRGB, especially since I have never knowingly played with Adobe RGB. I think elements has a switch to change colour space, ...
  • Replied in Sunset
    Hi Anna, Sorry that I was negative, it had been a long day. But I did figure it was a sort of test shot for you and I know that you like me have a new camera, so it is all good. :-) Mark_A
  • Forgive my ignorance but I don't know, that particular file was a jpeg straight out of my D800, sharpened and cropped slightly in elements then resaved at max quality. Mark_A
  • I had a sandy beach turn out as a grey clay sort of colour in the print, definitely wrong. Mark_A
  • Replied in Just done it ..
    Just done it .. At the end there was a before and after comparison and I can report that my original settings were very nearly right, just a shade too warm. I checked my bluebells photos and the ...
  • I have a folder on my D drive called photos under that I have incoming and year, so I have 2017 - 2018 etc in each year I have 1809 steam rally 1809 portraits 1809 landscapes etc, whatever the ...
  • Hi vinnylo, They are all well done, sharp good exposure etc - but the lighting you use creates multiple highlights / reflections in their eyes which somehow puts me off. Mark_A
  • Replied in Very fine images
    Very fine images Great that such landscapes are accessible to you! Mark_A
  • Very nice set of images kristian1 .. the first few I enjoyed the most. Mark_A
  • Hi Paul, I started shooting jpeg with my D800 and loved the files which are massive with loads of detail and plenty of cropping potential. Now I shoot raws and am still very happy. The only thing ...
  • Hi omryd, That is actually a stoppie rather than a wheelie :-) Nice pics, I think you got a good impression in your images, especially a non distracting background. Did you take more pics? Mark_A
  • I like to get as much as possible done in the camera because I don't really enjoy post processing that much. Partly that might be because I am not so skilled at editing. I adjust levels and often ...
  • Replied in Smooth bokeh
    Hi DeanDoe, It is a nice effect. What combination of factors did you use to get it? Sorry didn't check the exif. Mark_A
  • The op joined dpreview, made this single post and hasn't been back to join in the discussion, I suspect we are having our legs pulled. Mark_A
  • Hi Ellis, I now shoot raw and actually it is pretty rare that I will trust my monitor enough to vary the colour of an image. I mainly adjust things like levels and trust that my camera got the ...
  • Replied in In Green
    Aha, that last one is what I can see :-) Mark_A
  • If you look at that photo in max size you can see in her eyes the light that the photographer used. It is reflected to the right so the light was to the photographer's right. I don't know if a ...
