I have both and from the reviews I have read, they imply the 17 - 50 is marginally better.
Actually shooting with them, they are both very satisfactory and I bring the 28 - 75 with me when I think I will have need of the longer end of the telephoto with not as much wide angle shooting. Think...
Like you, I am interested in the idea of turning pictures into images which are more than just "pictures" of what was there.
Like the third image, but would have cropped the sky consideralby to even out the layers of colour i.e. reddish, yellow/biege, etc...
Thanks Bob and John. I knew I had overdone the color but without some great boost you could hardly see the leaves in the forest.
I'll keep an eye out for the blue snow and CA. My problem is that I am not that great with colors.
I have spent too much time working on this image and need some feedback on it.
I took it with a Sony digicam (W300) and processed the image in Capture NX.
Anyone have some helpful critique (i.e. what's good; what's bad).
I must say I am finding the process of getting these images on the...
Nice enhancing! Reminds me of some of the processing Capture NX is able to do, if you know how to use it well. I am only moderately skilled so am also looking to learn more.
A casual observation suggests that what you did was primarily increase the contrast selectively. I'm sure...
Ordinarily not a big fan of waterfalls but very much like pine / spruce trees, s curved shapes and forests in general. Nice shot. Can you show us a less "processed" view of this image to see what you have accomplished with photomatix?
I find it very interesting that you could process this image more than you could a D2X shot.
I also played with the contrast (increased) and I think it looks better but I think this shot suffers what some of those colourfull autumn shots do that basically have very little...
Very much agree with your hypothesis in regard to practice / skill training.
Can't offer a whole lot of critique on these shots other than to say some of this type of tree shot seems to work a little better when the trees are more parallel with fewer diverging (i.e. not straight)...
Anyone interested in joining us next Friday (Feb. 15th) to meet up and shoot some interesting sights down in Niagara please respond to thread:
As per Sandi's (TOLady) earlier announcement of a group shoot next Friday (Feb. 15th)
It's time to sort out who is coming where we will meet and other travel details. I'll PM those who have already indicated an interest but let...
Like the job you did on this one! Your adjustments appear to have given it the increased contrast I felt it needed.
Not an expert by any means but I can tell you what helps me develop "pop". First of all I let me say that many types of images don't require this but when you feel the...
Nice capture! I think you can play with this one and improve the contrast / "pop" of the image quite a lot.
For some reason it looks a lot better when downloaded to my PC than it does on this web site. Maybe someone like Patrick Bramlett or one of the other administrators could...
