I have gotten that a little too "clean" comment more than once. What is amazing it that there is absolutely no noise reduction at all preformed - just less aggressive sharpening and here is the real kicker - the lens was the 24-120 VR infamous for being less than the sharpest nikkor. I'm always amazed how smooth, but sharp, this image looks - I processed it more than once to make sure noise reduction was off (I haven't even bothered to clone out the sensor dust.)hans said:Well I'm not Gordon but I love the second one
The first is a little to clean for me but that's just my opinion
I was under the waterfall getting quite wet trying to handhold 1/25 second - I was quite shocked that the cascading water was not captured with more lateral movement than it was.Chris101 said:Maybe you should add some noise Chad. ... Just kidding - I rarely like that effect.I like 'em both. The droplets in the waterfall are great!
Hey Greyflash. I preset the WB off the structure with my 70-200 + TC zoomed all the way in and went across the street with my 24-120 VR. Tripod mounted (left VR on) I used the perspective crop (not sure it is quite straight). I must say you have a very good eye to catch that. I submitted the image for free use to the LDS church after I cloned out the dust spots - I'm hoping that it can be used by them in some capacity. Forgot to change the af mode but it turned out ok, anyway. Here is the exif -greyflash said:Hi Chad, I think the image of the temple is stunning. I assume you took this late evening but would be interested in any other technical details, including WB. Did you use a perspective crop? Just excellent.
