  • Replied in Wow ! :-)
    Fishchris, I de-saturated the purple fringing the slow way -  by selecting those colours with 'Select>Color Range' and then de-saturating them.   It required several steps to pick out all the ...
  • Created discussion thread Simplicity
    Haven't posted for a while.    Comments welcome, but not necessary. Illusion
  • Fishchris, Thanks for the OK to try an edit. It's fun working on such a good image.  I'd be proud to have one like this in my portfolio. I cooled the colour overall, and used 'Perspective Crop' to ...
  • Fishchris, This is a fine decorative photograph.  The composition has visual harmony.  The strong leading line starts at the bottom left, takes us up the path to the tree, where our eyes sweep ...
  • Commented on photo Favorite from my film days in the My other camera challenge

    Beautiful camera! I see it's a 'Tele-Rollei', with the 135mm Sonnar, so it's beautiful and rare!

  • Zmotula, Thanks for posting the link to your Shutter Lag testing tool.  That's pretty slick!  I'm going to be trying it out with every camera in the place.  Using the built in flash adds to the lag ...
  • Replied in Canon 430ex
    Vous, I think it's there on the screen to remind you that some Custom Functions have been set.  If you return all Custom Functions to the '0' setting it should go away. I hope that helps.  It's not ...
  • Lew, Which sites have you tried so far? From browsing your website, I see you are a serious and competent photographer. I have been on DPR a long time, tried 500PX for a season, entered a few ...
  • Replied in Flower
    SanDiegoDon, I believe that's a calla lily. To save exif data when exporting from Lightroom, I think you have to go to 'File>Export', and then adjust the settings in 'Metadata'. Lightroom 'File>Export'
  • Kofla, I can't answer all your questions, but here is a photograph I made many years ago with a film camera mounted on a small tripod which was duct-taped to the gas tank of my Yamaha. No exif in ...
  • Replied in Oak Tree
    Ken, Welcome back! Your photo is nice - sun dappled new growth on the old trunk. I like the vertical lines in the background. They suggest upward movement (growth, new start, etc.). Are you happy ...
  • Paul, Welcome to DPR and to the BW forum. There are a lot of dark shadows in the images you've posted here. If that's the way you like them, then carry on. Trust your instincts. If we all followed ...
  • Paul, When in Slide Show mode, if you move your mouse pointer off the screen, the image bar at the bottom will disappear after a few seconds. You can use the Right/Left arrow keys to advance to the ...
  • Curiosifly, Yes, sharpening and noise reduction are a balancing act. More sharpening = more noise,  and too much noise reduction will blur the image.  Often it's best to sharpen locally, and avoid ...
  • Bob, If you don't mind buying used, Canon T1, T2, T3, T4, etc. have a 'B' setting that allows the shutter to stay open as long as you like.  Nikons may do the same - not sure.  Try Kijiji. A remote ...
  • Peter, I like your triptych. Three images seen together are so much more interesting and powerful than individual shot. 9 times more, I think, or is it 27 times?  I dunno, it's science.  A fine ...
  • Serge, JBF's method should work.  Another solution is Photoshop's 'Patch' tool. It's hiding under the Spot Healing Brush tool. You draw a line around the area you want to fix, then drag that over ...
  • Replied in Growing
    Vidau, He is a beautiful boy, and lucky to have such a good photographer to document his childhood.  :-) Steve
  • Also el, A nice 'slice-of-life' shot, in my opinion. An everyday, tender moment. The BW crop is good, but I'd suggest going a bit further. Crop the right to just ahead of the man's fingertips. That ...
  • John, Thanks for putting a name to the subject. I found and read a Wikipedia article for Mr. Humes. What a fascinating story! Steve
