Bunjo's recent activity

  • All done in Landscape Pro Studio. 3 zones selected, Sky, Tree and Rock. Sky replaced with a sunset preset. Sky and Tree demingled. Everything else (Rock) given a touch of 'Improver' to match the ...
  • Yes. Having said that different photographic subject matter lends itself to more realism than others. Street and sports photography is often artistic but mostly realistic. Landscape photography is ...
  • Only Topaz AI Clear used (Strength 0.87, Detail Boost High, Exposure 0.52, Clarity 0.39). No cropping or colour adjustment, obviously).
  • I have AI Clear and bought it because I can boost Clarity excessively, but in an automatic  selective manner, to manipulate my abstract renditions. My small experience of the denoising function is ...
  • You could do worse than consider the dpreview report https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/buying-guide-best-pocketable-enthusiast-cameras Personally I like Panasonic cameras and I have a Panasonic ...
  • If packing requirements are that tight and you have no professional intentions then leave the DLSR and lenses at home and borrow, rent or buy a decent compact. Otherwise you'll spend the entire ...
  • Agreed. Although it is a 'cheap and cheerful' lens it gives good results, is very portable, and surely good enough for an emergency lens. I find myself using in preference to other ultrawide angle ...
  • I recently ended my subscription for Lightroom and Photoshop. I don't need or like the way that Lightroom works - my personal choice for my sort of photography. I would have kept the subscription ...
  • I've dropped the Adobe subscription and have replaced Lightroom and Photoshop with DXO PL (I already had DXO Viewpoint) and Topaz Studio (I already had the plugins). This pretty much covers all my ...
  • Can't comment about your pictures, obviously. Yet a cookery writer became well known when the pictures of his finished dishes were presented on ordinary plates, showing a few food splashes, and ...
  • A rough and ready edit to test some editing tools. Sky and water reflections changed in Landscape Pro Studio then verticals corrected in DXO (Viewpoint 3 plugin). If I did the edit again I'd ...
  • I understand that people have cleaned sensors on a LX100 (there are postings on DPReview somewhere) by modifying a plastic bottle so that one end fits over the extended lens, and the other end ...
  • Everyone will have their own  views, but I've used a tighter crop to remove the distracting vertical twig on the right and the trunk on the left, and left a little more room on the left where the ...
  • I've cancelled my Adobe subscription for Lightroom and Photoshop. While both very capable pieces of software they are more complex than I require and, to an extent, require me to work 'the Adobe way'.
  • Especially if you extend Photoshop Elements with Elements+ . But Photoshop CC is part of a suite of graphics programs, Photoshop Elements is aimed at amateur photography, and Topaz Studio is aimed ...
  • If you want to do this often then Landscape Pro Studio software is probably a worthwhile investment, particularly if you have the white sky showing through lots of tree branches.
  • Replied in Bobthearch
    If you sign up for a Topaz web seminar attendees often get percentage discounts. Sometimes for the whole 'pro adjustments' and sometimes for individual pro adjustments. Plus you also get to see how ...
  • I bought my LX100 in August 2017 and have not used my DLSRs since - except for a few frames of a Super Moon which required a hideously long (effective 900mm) and heavy lens. I'll probably use my ...
  • 20k photos in a single folder is... a lot. My suggestion as a fairly quick fix is to separate out the files into annual folders, this won't take very long. If the numbers are still too cumbersome ...
  • I think you could make a better argument if you were to say that using 'lIquify' to misrepresent a person (to sell something) is unethical, but there are uses such as fine art or psycotherapy ...
