  • Created discussion thread Preferred Crop
    Just wondering do most folk crop their images to whatever looks best, or mostly stick to a specific aspect ratio? i.e., to proportionally fit A4/A5/A3 frame, or even a square shape? Many thanks.
  • Thanks for all the comments, it's going to be really helpful going forward. I've taken notes! Cheating, but good practice, I quickly made 3 jpg's from the 1 RAW file with differing exposures. Tried ...
  • I'm not familiar with Light Room and unsure how to do the radial filter or adjustment brush - things I'll have to look up. Instead I went back to the RAW file and started again. Bit lighter, can ...
  • Created discussion thread Basic sunrise settings/rules
    Thought it would be nice to capture some early morning light on some cliffs and the results were disappointing. As I type I'm probably going to answer my own questions, but hopefully you guys can ...
  • mfinley - I agree yours is a better and stronger composition, i'll stubbornly stick to the original  though I think. Thanks for going to the trouble to edit it. If you could let me know how to add ...
  • Created discussion thread C&C: Sunrise Beach Shot
    Took this last year, my first time shooting sunrise, and keep coming back to the RAW file, altering colours, starting again etc. So, thought I'd redo quickly and post here for comment. Sometimes ...
  • Created discussion thread On top of a (small) mountain
    Was high up a hill the other day and despite it being wildly windy which teared up my eyes I snapped away blindly and was pleasantly surprised with this shot of my brother once I got home. Would ...
  • Have read through all the comments, thanks for the replies, think I'll stick to AF and only revert to manual in the instances Chris R detailed.
  • I always just point and click, with the camera working out the exposure from what I've automatically focussed on. Briefly tried manual focus the other day, handheld, so I could use any part of the ...
  • Much better! I'll do the same on my original and make that my final edit! Thank you Sir!
  • Yes, that was the longest range at 55, and yes I definitely got my feet wet that day so good point on the focal limits of the lens, will keep your comment in mind when next shopping around! Cheers.
  • Created discussion thread Me dog in a river
    Welcome any constructive criticism :-) Thanks.
  • Just not quite got it yet. There's always something - too dark, over saturated, noisy, blown out highlights etc. More thought and practice will definitely help. In camera - If I remember correctly ...
  • Created discussion thread Me dog on a rock!
    Have never achieved a photo I'm completely satisfied with. Generally worry more about composition and don't consider exposure greatly before clicking, hence original RAW files look pretty ...
  • Ha! The comparison of the two does show how unrealistic mine looks. Find it hard to resist upping the vibrance/clarity and over contrasting! Your comment is exactly what I was hoping for, basically ...
  • Created discussion thread Post Processing critique
    hi, I've had some great feedback in the beginners questions page on my problems with exposure settings and RAW processing so thought I'd post another photo here for review. Basically, I underexpose ...
  • I did wet clean, so you can imagine how bad it was before!! Will try again though before I next go out. Mark. I'm not sure how to calibrate this laptop but looking at the white background on this ...
  • Thanks for that. In effect I was already 'exposing to the right' to maintain detail and then brightening it in post. So think I was right to do that in the first place(?!), but always a bit ...
  • Never used it before but have uploaded via TinyUpload... http://s000.tinyupload.com/?file_id=98922995911431760781
  • That is a really well written explanation, thanks so much. You were right, I had it stuck on -0.33ev and all my photos have been underexposed. I will learn from this and 'expose to the right' more ...
