  • Since I don't use .JPGs for this type of work I can approach this as though I would with a RAW file when seeing it for the first time. The shadows are too deep here and appear to have no gradation ...
  • You're right about the amount of time to change lenses.  I would say you need a telephoto too for outdoor but the 12-40 or 12-35 Panasonic is important for indoor shooting.   You really need at ...
  • Don't forget IBM also. They were the king in the computer industry but they didn't adapt to customer demand. A huge company brought to its knees in the late 80s when the customer showed them who...

  • Replied in No
    I don't use the noise filter although I get the two names of the noise reduction confused.  I use the one for night photography that does the dark subtraction but the other that supposedly removes ...
  • Replied in My approach
    I have two custom settings to cover these circumstances. One handles daylight photography and will auto ISO from 200-400 and starts with f5.6. Two for the low light indoor stuff with auto ISO from ...
  • Thanks for taking these.  As I live in Cloverdale and work in Healdsburg I found myself wondering in and out of the preliminary evacuation zone(s).   Incredibly disheartening to lose so much so ...
  • Replied in My take
    I think you've worked it out correctly.  Diffraction should be taken into account beginning at f8-f11 depending on the lens but it should not keep you from shooting smaller apertures where you ...
  • The problem with DXO marks is that there is very little connection to those things that make great photos great. I've been shooting with Olympus cameras for the last 7 years, thought about leaving ...
  • Lightroom really has the highest level of user interface refinement and does wonderfully on my photos BUT it is in need of a performance update as it has grown gradually slower as file sizes have ...
  • <The engine of On1 is very accurate! One of the few RAW editors out there who "know" what is highlights and what is shadows in an image. >

    My experience is the opposite. I currently cannot get...

  • Replied in Wow!
    I love these! Thanks for sharing them.
  • Replied in Great mood.
    The space, B&W are excellent and the leading line adds to the depth between the singer and everyone else.  Wonderful compelling image.
  • Replied in Leading
    The first one.  Best lines, color and composition.  I haven't read the other's comments so have not been jaded by them!
  • The 12-40 definitely covers the range of shooting situations I'm composing for.  With that said, I use the 9-18 a lot for drama, shooting into the light with long shadows of trees.  It is a lens ...
  • Developing - is it's newest and weakest module.  It's no Lightroom in this regard (yet).    I do like the way several of the tools work like the smart eraser.   And I enjoy working with layers in ...
  • I have both the lilies and the lens in question :-) It's wonderful to limit the depth of field and the bokeh is really good until the background is too bright where it becomes apparent this is not ...
  • Not assuming that this is news to you but between the Super Control Panel and the ability to assign your mysets to several function keys, there is a workflow that keeps one from dipping into the ...
  • Thanks for sharing, I've looked through them a couple of times and since you opened yourself up to critique, I have a few things for you to consider.  These are things I probably would do in ...
  • I like your shots a lot.  But am still so amazed how the Merrill renders images.  It's the only camera I can see pictures from anywhere online and tell them by their quality.   They are so ...
