Schwany: Looks like a nifty camera. The hands on and interview videos are fun to watch, and I mean that in a positive and supportive way. Thanks

Does DP Review have any plans to post the image examples that were shadow lifted and shown in this video?

I'd like to see what they really look like after 2 minutes of post processing.

If I could throw away everything I've learned and had to deal with regarding exposure by purchasing a Nikon, hey I'm all over that. The image examples from this video might help with making such a decision.

I meant in the confines of the review reply/message system. But I get what you are saying. Minutia is above my pay grade though, so it's a road less traveled in my case.

I can really appreciate how much freedom letting go of the shackles of exposure workarounds would give a photographer. I've been told that many times, but it took your video to drive it home. I could babble on, but this is not the place.

Thanks

Thanks for the response Barney.

I'm looking forward to seeing how it all came out. I was impressed with what I could see in the video, and I know if I tried to do that with some of the old cameras I have I'd spend a lot more time trying to recover the darks, and might not even be able to do it to any usable degree of satisfaction.

Schwany: What I get for being positive. I should know better.

The NIK plugins install broke my install of LightRoom. Yah!

Thanks Google

Fixed it, but why did I have to bother? Only the shadow knows.

No problem here getting the complete collection working.

Thanks Google for seeing the market value of these filters and making the entire collection available to long time valued customers. Good PR.

Now I can put Topaz to rest.

Wow! I never expected to even get a vote. I guess I got lucky. Thanks to all those that took a look and the time to vote.

JstarImaging: Was that taken from the exit of the Corkscrew?

This is about the middle of Turn 5. Taken from the road up above behind but standing above the spectator fence. It takes a bunch of focal length to shoot from up there and capture much detail.

Excellent treatment of the capture, which in and of itself is a work of art. This would make a great painting. That is a compliment from a geezer whom has played a few brush strokes.

On photo Which Pacific Crest trail? in the Kilometers challenge (2 comments in total)

I like the old trails signs. I sure hope the folks responsible for maintaining the signs can continue to replace them with the same materials. The new plastic posts and signs just don't make me feel all warm and fuzzy like these do.

Neat capture. The exasperated fella on the trail in the distance really brings it home.
