Just a few snaps....
Very nice images
70-300 VR lookin good
Any PP? Awesome contrast if it's straight from camera.
I really like the expression on the face of the first goat...nice captures.
More and more I'm thinking about getting this lens.....excellent photos...
Great shots! I love this lens too!
Just got mine today, can't wait to take some pics!
yeah, what's the contrast setting or PP setting? The colour is amazing
love the way that goat (pic #2) is holding his mouth ...great captures, well done ...;-))
I am getting closer and closer to pulling the trigger on this lens. Any more pictures like these and I will lose all self control!
Self control is highly overrated. :biggrin:
Great shots, Watson!
Thanks for all the kind comments...
as far as post processing goes, here is what I like to do...
For the images I published yesterday, I simply create a simple S-Curve with more emphasis on the blacks (the D50 has a good bit of highlight and shadow detail which can make an image look 'flat'). I use Curves in Nikon Capture as this also brings out stronger color, for portraits I use the LCH Editor as this changes tone without changing color. Once I have the tone/exposure set, if need be I add a little unsharp mask (Intensity 20, Halo Width 5). The unsharp mask algorithm in Nikon Capture is a bit better (IMO) than the one included in photoshop as it does a better job with higher radius values.
I will publish the step-by-step screen captured process later on today if anyone is interested.
Please do! Thanks.
Nice pics. I would also love to see the pp steps in detail. I have nowhere near that pp skill but agree that the 70-300VR is pretty impressive. I took it to a free outdoor concert in the park yesterday. It was really easy to carry and performed great. Here is the thread with some pics:
OK, that does it: You had me with the first photo. The kid in front of the fence was just plain overkill.
nice lens and nice pics. i always said it was a superb piece of glass.
Jason's ebook on NX has plug in settings for landscapes, nature and portraits. Just click and the settings, ie base settings and curves are applied.
I just put in an order on the 70-300. What lens do you think would be a nice wide angle complement to this one? I was thinking Sigma 10-20 but am waiting for a good deal on it. Any thoughts?
Very nice shots. That's a lens for the rest of us to lust after.
