    Landscapes and Sights in India

    Some might be considered more Travel shots. But other than some crowded sights, I think it fits better here. Fuji S5 Pro (D200 modified body) Sigma 10-20mm or the 18-55 VR II kit lens (My light travel kit) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14

    Oregon coast (Hwy 101)

    Haha, yeah the internal IR reflections make those shots very difficult. The magenta almost always bleeds through.... Thanks everyone, was a fun few hours running around trying to catch the sun! And then the long exposures later when the light was terrible lol

    Canadian Rockies (IR)

    Oh I know, its insatiable! The S5 Pro is pretty cheap as a convertable body, and works really well for having the dynamic range needed to keep the clouds from being blown (Major problem on my old Converted D70) #2 is definitely my favorite, no channel swap, but I think it works better there!

    Touristy stuff in Spain and Morocco (picture heavy)

    Oh Barcelona I could go back and spend a lot more time there. I barely scratched the surface in the 3 days I had. July the sites are quite packed though. The sheer number of people at Sagrada Familia, Park Cuell and Montjuic was a bit mind boggling.

    Touristy stuff in Spain and Morocco (picture heavy)

    In Granada naturally you will be going to the Alhambra, buy your tickets in advance and go to the "afternoon" time. That way you can be in the park for sunset / magic hour lighting. I made that mistake and went in the morning. Also when going to see the Alhambra, don't take a bus, walk and...

    Request for D7000 owners? (Full RAW landscape image)

    Multiple pictures stitched together, but it was one exposure on a D50 or a D200 (I forget what camera I had at the time) with a few layers worth of editing / masking. No tonemapping though

    Request for D7000 owners? (Full RAW landscape image)

    I own 2 Fuji S5 Pro's for landscape photography, and so I've been following a few camera's lately. With the D4 dx0mark review out, I noticed the D7000 is still top of their list for dynamic range... Soo.... Anyone have a few full res RAW shots I can look at? What I'm looking for is...

    Athabasca Falls, AB. (HDR vs Manually Blending)

    Well manual blending is kind of my way of saying, I used all the bracketed shots and created multiple layers and layer masks by hand till I got what I deemed a good dynamic range image. Once you have the concept of layers and layer masking down in photoshop, its pretty easy to combine...

    Jasper, cause its not all about Banff!

    Thanks for the good comments! You know, of all the times I've visited Maligne lake, i've never even considered taking the boat tour. I walked half way to the postercard island (That the lake is famous for). Then realized I wouldn't get back in time for nightfall if I kept going. So I had to...

    Jasper, cause its not all about Banff!

    Thanks! Its Mt Kerkeslin according to google earth. All of these pics had a polarizer on, it rarely ever leaves any of my lenses. Inconsistent sky or not, its amazing at saving water from nasty glare.

    Athabasca Falls, AB. (HDR vs Manually Blending)

    Thanks, the photomatix blend is just terribly ugly. I could touch it up a bit and try to save it, but I don't feel like I could get it acceptable anyway.

    Athabasca Falls, AB. (HDR vs Manually Blending)

    Manually blending by hand vs Photmomatix (As best as I could manage). I do this test every once in a while and see if I should even look at tonemapping, But even with the extra 10-20 minutes of work that needs to go into the manual blend, I just can't justify tonemapping. I know its tilted, I...

    Rockies (All Stitched shots, C&C wanted)

    Thanks for all the nice feedback! Though I'm sticking with the CPL :) I don't mind the skies, and I feel the positives outweigh the negatives, but thats my opinion anyway! PTGui is fantastic, has never let me down (well maybe when I have to add control points manually). The whole area is...

    Rockies (All Stitched shots, C&C wanted)

    Haha, thanks very much both of you! As for HDR, nope, Though I shot these with a Fuji S5 Pro, so the dynamic range is almost always sufficient enough directly out of the RAW's!

    Rockies (All Stitched shots, C&C wanted)

    I'm more looking for opinions on brightness, black levels, saturation etc. My monitor is the same, but I had to move it and the viewing angle is a bit different (higher) and it can't tilt up and down. C&C on the composition etc is fine too! From Prince George to in and around Jasper, a few...

    Time-lapse (Icefield parkway Canada, 400km in 4 minutes)

    I only saw 2 cyclists the entire time, but It was Thursday morning between 9 and 1:00. So that doesn't surprise me. That would be an amazingly grueling trek on a bicycle though! You must be in great shape to have done that!

    Time-lapse (Icefield parkway Canada, 400km in 4 minutes)

    My rule of thumb is 10km/h over the speedlimit, but sometimes for the sake of the video I sped up a lot faster to get people out of the shot :) Almost 400km, I think the odometer actually read 421, but at one pic for every 200m it should be 400km almost exactly!

    Time-lapse (Icefield parkway Canada, 400km in 4 minutes)

    This isn't exactly a picture per-se. But its 2000 of them made into a video! Its my favorite drive ever, so when the weather was a bit iffy I decided to try another timelapse (My last one didn't work out so well) This time I used a tripod rather than a window mount, which actually saved me...

    Couple fun MX shots with the 16-35 VR

    I tried it out near the beginning of the day to capture some of the crazy looking clouds, Tough contrast for the D700 though... I really miss my S5 for shooting more "landscape" style sports shots

    Couple fun MX shots with the 16-35 VR

    Oh I did lots that follow the typical rules of composition, but I liked the first pic for the riders colour scheme, and having rider exit frame rather than enter here doesn't really change much. (as below)

    Lenses for pano stitching?

    Sigma 10-20mm or the 18-55 VR work great on DX, almost never use a tripod, PTGui or Hugin work great at stitching. Errors are few and far between and often easily fixable. On the D700 i've also used the Sigma 50mm f1.4 for a few pano's, but you don't get the same perspective so its less my...
