  • It's interesting to watch the fields getting worked.  It would be REALLY interesting to see some of the big boys working on the prairies or in the mines.  They line multiple huge machines up and ...
  • Hi Steve. I've enjoyed reading posts from you for years.  Thanks. I don't know if you have a Yahoo account but you need one to get on to Flickr.  I'm going with the less than 1000 free photos ...
  • Replied in Todays word...
    Thanks Nick. For a free package Nik is a really good one.

    starts with "S". Antique photo setting in Nik Silver Efex modified to taste.  The black and white treatment suits snow scenes.
  • I read a book about dogs.  85 percent of dogs in the world aren't kept by an owner like many people in developed countries do.  Dogs live in the wild, often near sources of food like dumps.  World ...
  • I felt that DXO new version didn't have interest as well. $70 U.S. turns into close to $100 Canadian. I'll use that money for something else. One place where I've found DXO shines is color ...
  • Replied in Lens test.
    Thanks.  You're a man of taste ;-).
  • Replied in Lens test.
    It's visible in the original raw shot it's so purple ! The same lens earlier today was cranking out some shots I liked. It's the first time I've seen this from this particular lens. Cropped.  Not ...
  • Replied in Lens test.
    It's great to hear you're livin' large Greg. Canon 70-210mm f3.5-f4.5.  Heavily cropped but hmmm.  This is the worst I've ever gotten out of this lens.
  • It sounds like you are being "perfect shot" focused. What the shelter needs is "cute" that someone likes. If you get the cute shots it won't really matter if the focus is perfect. I haven't seen ...
  • If you are shooting as an example in manual mode by raising the speed of the shot there is less light going to the sensor which should mean fewer stripes showing.  Raising F stop or lowering ISO ...
  • When you start learning what the brain does to what the eye sees it's really interesting. Yep.  Same here :-). I liked your original with more sky in it.  Check out zebra stripes (I hope your ...
  • Split toning is part of Color adjustments. It starts with white balance adjustment on the camera. I live in Ontario, Canada where it's legal to grow cannabis now which means I'm shooting in full ...
  • Konica 57mm f1.4. If you get a Konica manual adapter get one that fits a 7 series since it will fit the A6000 and full frame if you decide to go that route in the future. Some of the Konica ...
  • The building on the right is condo apartments right on the river with a hydroelectric plant connected to the apartments.   The building on the left is an old city hall that includes an auditorium ...
  • Replied in Late fall days.
    A couple shots on the river and a big old tree that I thought looked neat.   Vignette in corners is from the lens.   I did a slight cropping to get rid of a lot of the vignette.  Canon 28-105mm on ...
  • Replied in The first snow
    Thanks. She has a brother from the same litter.  I've never had high energy collies before and with the 2 siblings it's a double whammy.  They keep me busy. They love to play and herd.  Since I ...
  • The TZ80 should be a nice camera to use.  Some of the Panasonics with the Leica lenses turn out really nice pictures. Snow has disappeared here for now too.  It won't be long and I'll be getting ...
  • Replied in Cheese!
    That explains a lot.   Things have moved quickly in camera technology as in many other areas of life. Grant.
