  • Very pretty indeed! Two comments: first, I’m traveling and had to use Snapseed on the iPad so replacing the sky isn’t an option at the moment. Even if I could have done it I think you’ve done a ...
  • Created discussion thread Nova Scotia Fall Colours
    Out in the rain today, tried a few shots despite the off and on downpours. This one is my favourite so far. Comments welcome, as always. (In Nova Scotia, if you don’t like the weather just wait a ...
  • My experience previously with a Coolpix A was similar in that the files are easy to work with. Unfortunately the camera is not, and eventually drove me slightly crazy as it is somewhat similar to ...
  • Got it! Good to know about, and Lightroom does indeed seem to be the worst for this. Annoying, but I can work around it. Guess I got spoiled because the shadows in K1 photos can be pulled up so ...
  • Created question thread GR Image Quality Problem.....
    Hi All, I have recently acquired a new GR at a great price, and I love the interface and controls. The image quality is generally quite good, as expected, but I did run into a problem tonight. When ...
  • Mine did this too after only a few months. Went back to B&H under their used warranty for a replacement, no questions asked. Definitely not a repair to try yourself. I am halfway through trying to ...
  • Actually he’s a retired lawyer who paints for fun and dabbles in photography using (gasp!) a Canon T5i. Despite the poor taste in cameras his artistic sense is usually very good . Don’t ever try ...
  • Awwwww! I had a diagram all ready to post.
  • Created discussion thread Can you see this?
    Spirit of The Stream Ok, this is driving me nuts. I thought this was just a so-so image of a stream in winter, not really about anything much and just done for practice. A friend of mine who is an ...
  • Fair points. 1. F9 to give enough depth of field to have the door and the stonework both acceptably sharp 2. The lens is a Sigma 70-200 f2.8 EX DG HSM II bought used. Probably good enough - I ...
  • Thanks Steve. This is the old post office where I live, now a shop. Favourite test subject. The K1 easily out-does the first camera I shot this with, a Nikon D300. To my eye it also edges out a ...
  • It might also be my limitations as a user of Pixel Shift :) For me, the detail in the stonework and the pavement are what were the most impressive things, as well as the range of tones. Probably ...
  • The tripod is an old friend - a Gitzo 2330 aluminum model, with an Induro BHD2 head. I'm not sure what happened with the sign, although I don't see what you mean about the handles. Processing ...
  • Created discussion thread Pixel Shift - a first attempt
    Was out tonight and froze my fingers nicely fiddling with as many settings as possible :) Here is a first attempt at a pixel shift photo on a static subject. Comments welcome. (Processed initially ...
  • Could I just (politely, I hope - I’m Canadian ;-)) point out that in the last photo of the gentleman at the table, an 85mm lens shot at 1/13 of a second  is pushing the stabilization system a bit, ...
  • Great idea, Chris! Anybody can photograph icebergs in the Arctic or Antarctic, but how about in Newfoundland, in August? (Check the EXIF data). This is a town called Leading Tickles, from one of ...
  • Most common remark from people looking at my K1 photos is “I love the colours!”
  • Replied in New Toys....
    Thank you for this comment! That’s exactly the point of leaving the tire in the frame! Now if I can just get the hang of NOT including one of the tripod legs, then having to clone it out like I ...
  • Replied in New Toys....
    Point taken about the processing of the first one. I was a little afraid of being too heavy handed, and over-doing it. I did at least remove the (very distracting) power line from the left side ...
  • Created photo thread New Toys....
    I've been trying out my new Pentax K1 with the Irix 15mm lens, and also playing with Luminar 2018 for processing. Here's a couple of examples.... C&C welcomed, as always.
