  • Replied in Need some help
    Hi Nick in ACR I used Adjustment Brush and changed the white balance Temperature and Tint, I think you have the same tool in Lightroom. I also have a photo I took there a couple of years back.
  • I had a little play around in ACR used the sliders in HSL/Greyscale and quickly come up with this result.
  • I have the older version of the 24-85 too it's the non VR version and the 28-105mm lens is much better or with my copy at least
  • Thanks for the Link very interesting reading. I just did a little test at different focal lengths and from f5.6 up the lens is really sharp although i think at 105mm you need to be around f8 for ...
  • When I got my 28-105 I was very disappointed, all the reviews I read on the lens said it was a very good lens but mine was very soft and like you I had to correct it with around +10. Finally I ...
  • Created discussion thread Nikon 28-105mm f3.5-5.6 AF-D Lens
    Today I decided to get out my Nikon 28-105mm lens and give it another try on my Nikon D750. I bought this lens on e-bay a few years ago to use on my D600 but since getting the Tamron 24-70mm f2.8 ...
  • I have the Tamron 24-70VC and I love the lens it's very sharp right across all apertures and recently I compared it to two of my Nikon prime lenses the 50mm f 1.8G and the Nikon 35mm f2 D lens, ...
  • A beautiful photo I really don't think much needs to be done, I got rid of the photo frames and the lamp at the back. I did two renditions one with vignette blur. I had trouble moving the frame ...
  • I had another look at that photo and your right the dirt is a bit too purple looking, I was too focused on trying to take the yellowish tint out of the foliage and over did it.. I loaded the ...
  • Nicely photographed  just a tad dark for my liking but that's a personal choice, I loaded your photos into ACR and had a go at editing them to my liking, theRAW files would have made it easier. I ...
  • I have been reading a few post from people querying the sharpness of the Tamron 24-70mm f2.8 lens when compared to Nikon prime lenses, today I got my Tamron out and my Nikon 35mm and 50mm lenses ...
  • Replied in Keep them all
    I have started doing the same thing as you. Along with the Tamron 24-70mm lens I have an older Nikon 24-85mm 3.5-4.5G non VR lens, this nNikon lens is plenty sharp enough after f4 plus it's much ...
  • The only thing that sticks out to me is the sharp edges of where the rock edges meet the water and sky, I would use either clone tool or adjustment brush in a little bit of blur to soften these ...
  • Thanks Steve I didn't know about this option and It works great
  • Thanks everyone for your edits they all look great but this one I like the best the clouds make such a difference to a boring sky. The shot is of Milford Sound New Zealand taken March this year. ...
  • The photo didn't need much re-touching as it was OK as it was. I played around a bit with the Liquify option in CC 2015 and tried to add a bit of a smile to the faces.
  • Created discussion thread Photos for play
    Just a couple of photos I took a few months ago while in New Zealand if anyone would like a play I would be interested in their results. The last photo is my result using the two photos not ...
  • I have a Nikon D750 and the Tamron 24-70mm lens, other than the weight I am very impressed with this lens for sharpness and image quality. If I want a bit extra reach I usually crop my RAW file ...
  • Replied in travel camera.
    I have a Nikon D750 but when I'm travelling on holiday's I take my Sony RX100. I will be travelling to Phuket next month and I don't want the hassle of a big camera and the worry about getting it ...
