Older Fossil's recent activity

  • When we sailed from Bergen to Svalbard in June 2011, we heard a saying that they attributed to the Norwegians: "There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing!" Art
  • Our trip included the Falklands, South Georgia an the Antarctic Peninsula with somewhat different conditions over the trip (and a visit to semi-tropical Iguazu Falls at the end) . We had clothing ...
  • When we went in Nov. 2013, we did not have any especially cold or bad weather,  I'm pretty sure most of the time I wore a pair of glove liners under glomitts (those fingertip-less gloves with a ...
  • I find choosing is a bit difficult, because the framing and angles are not quite the same.  But I like the "hominess" feel of the wooden background.  I agree that the bits on the background ...
  • I agree with all the others, MUCH better colors and exposure!    Now you can focus your attention on composition.  With an engineering background with no artisic training, composition is one of ...
  • Replied in Best 3
    Good job, your results are definitely getting better!  The exposure and white balance seem to be much better.  Of this set, I like the second image best.  For your 8x10 cropping, Photoshop, ...
  • A lot of computer displays come default with a very high brightness setting. This is great for web surfing and gaming, but can be misleading for images. A common complaint is images looking ok on ...
  • I can't remember if you mentioned in any of your previous threads about this project what you view your images on.  For the purpose of ending up with printed output, in my opinion you need to use ...
  • For us that has varied over time.  Back many years ago when I printed images from slides (darkroom era) I had quite a few around the house, mostly 8x10 size. In our last regular house I had gone to ...
  • This definitely sounds like an auto white balance issue.  AWB assumes that on average the colors of an scene blend to a neutral gray.  For scenes with a strong color bias, the AWB will shift ...
  • Replied in Waffles take 2
    I agree with most of the other comments.  I'd suggest a slightly wider view to not chop off the edge of the waffles and reduce the distracting elements in the background. Here is the result of a ...
  • Replied in Photos by HKZ
    I agree that the image could be brighter.  Have you made any attempt to calibrate the brightness of you monitor? From a composition perspective, I'd prefer to see a bit more space around the ...
  • If by any chance you are asking about the company called Light that is making a new type of camera, visit: https://support.light.co/hc/en-us/articles/205622844-How-is-the-L16-different-from-other-c ...
  • As I understand it, cross point sensors are part of the phase detect autofocus system that used to be independent of the main sensor.  Phase detect points work best with the edge of a high ...
  • This web site might help: https://www.gitzospares.com/gt1541-parts.html You may be needing D0702.01 and/or D0701.03. Art
  • Since we now live and travel in a large motorhome, our display options are limited.  We tend to produce about one photo book per year using Blurb.  At least with these we don't worry about losing ...
  • Are these jpegs straight out of the camera? Do you have access to a different card reader you can try? Do you have a cable and software to transfer directly from the camera? Art
  • My first reaction when seeing an image problem like that is a file corruption issue.  Often it is caused by a bad memory card reader when transferring the image to a computer.  Does the problem ...
  • Mark, No, in the intervening years and a couple of house moves, those have all gone.  In our last house I made several prints up to 13"x19" using an Epson R3000 printer and pigment inks.  But ...
  • While this was true for much of film photography, there were "positive" films, mostly slide films like Ektachrome and Kodachrome. These were used for projection of the image directly onto a ...
