Not to hijack your thread but here are some images from that same lens taken a couple years ago. Some at 800 and I think at least one at 1600mm. I am sure Franks experience with photo shop could improve on these.
I have been absent
I am sorry I have been away for so long. I do miss everyone here and the great lessons I learn from the site and the individuals that so freely share what they know.
Hopefully this get together will be a new beginning for me and re-vitalize my interest yet again.
Can someone tell me how to set up a batch process in CS-2?
Specifically I would like to run a large number of large files through the smart sharpen filter with a given set of values.
Is there a way to run this without opening the files?
Just a few shots from this past summers meet.
My favorite! Is this concentration or what?
Wow, looks like a lot of slippery stuff down there!
Deep in thought
Frank's thinking I don't have enough DOF for this shot with the 800...He's right!
No Birds may as well look for fish.
My apologies to the group for my long absence but rest assured I have visited as a lurker and am continuously amazed at the continued quality of those that post.
I must also apologize for these very poor images. I had the 800 mounted and camera set to manual when I rounded a bend at nickajack...
I have a friend that uses PS more for art than photo editing but she has a problem that perhaps one of you can help with. the following is directly from her email.
"my photoshop problem is exporting to bring stuff into quark and illustrator without the big white box that surrounds what i've...
Well, Patrick talked me into taking some of my photo gear with me to a convention in Reno where I will have a day free and what is apparently some good birding spots as well as a "river walk" immediately next to the hotel.
Figured I could take one body mounted to the Sigma 800 in the Sigma...
Hey Bill, Good shot. I think you are right in that perhaps the batter should be more the focus of attention. Everyone has opinions and with that in mind I offer the following. (only because you asked.)
I've always felt this would be a good challenge. perhaps call it "best improvement...
Thanks all but it was Phillip who showed me the way. he is still master of the 800. the best about this shot was that I took my time and spent about an hour watching and just relaxing without the thought of the office or other "issues".
Funny how once you start shooting birds your eyes scan the trees while you are driving. Found this guy / girl on a nest along a secondary 4 lane.
thank you Phillip for showing me it can be done and for the tips.
And thanks to Gordon for the sample on inverting the mask and applying blur to...
I like these flowers. they are kind of unique. Nice shot. Get us some once they open a bit more.
I've listed an old post showing the parts of the heart. Just something Grandma passed on.
I will be coming to Reno the 1st week in May for a convention but plan on taking at least 1 day off to take some photos. mostly interested in birds.
the Lahontan Audubon Society lists the stillwater wildlife management area as a pretty good birding spot.
Does anyone have any personal...
Andy, yes this was with the 800. is was just about full frame HSC. Frank was just in front of me taking the same shots with the 300 plus some TC. He is supposed to do a comparison as I sent him my raws so we can get the same processing. Can't wait to see the difference. I'm almost afraid of...
Chris Jones is right on the money.
Let me put another spin on this. I don't find it funny as this is a symbol of what is happening to more and more of the high tech labor in the computer software industry.
I own a small photogrammetry company That is now competing with a very large and...
I met up with Frank and Phil (I think) at the eagle nest this morning. the "chick" was flying and the weather was not cooperating. Frank suggested we look into a new spot about an hour further in Gadsden, AL. This new spot has a boardwalk over the marsh area etc. sounded pretty good.
Just wondering how others arrange thier directories?
For instance if you have many types of birds do you place them in directories by
ya know, I thought I had this problem. then I took the same shot of a brick wall from the same place with the same lens but compared the D200 to the D2X. when viewing both images side by side at the same image size on the screen I couldn't see any difference.
