Very first shots - exploring hue adjustments

Discussion in 'Nikon DX DSLR' started by Elf_8, Dec 22, 2005.

  1. Finally made it to use a couple of hours shooting out. I share all the enthusiasm of the new D200 owners - along with some deception regarding battery strenght. Using a linear function, I calculate that I would have had for some 200 shots from a fully loaded battery - but under these conditions : -8 C ; Compressed NEF ; LCD on for reviewing each take ; ereasing 1/3 of the shots.

    Now, what do you think of the hue adjustment on this one. I am coulourblind so please remember that nothing is obvious for me in this matter...

  2. Most of us males are color blind. LOL...............do you have a before and after hue adjustment for reference??
     
  3. Nice shot! How did you keep your feet dry?
    :)
    The trees are a nice warm brown to me.
     
  4. looks great, a little detail was lost in the snow mayne -3 under exp next time
    maybe at first light.. or last light to get some detail

    everything else looks great
     
  5. Thanks - warm brown seems to be fine, but I could see it also as dark red. I had a -3 value on the hue adjustment, as indicated in the shooting data. Is this setting warming the tone excessively ? Here is another shot with its data :

    BTW, on the latter I have applied intensive D-Lighting to open up the shadows, and I think the results are quite satisfying - the CCD in the D200 copes well with restauring details in the shadows.
     
  6. Looks good to me. Awfully cold looking though with all that snow.
    :)
     
  7. Thanks again, much obliged.
    Today was -8 C ; that's what ? 18 F or so.
    Snow is fun and you can fight cold if you dress well. But I do like hot and damp temperatures too :wink: .
     
  8. glad to assist. That beam looks awfully rusty, better be careful. :-D

    50's here today, nice golf weather for a change.

    ELF great to see you.
    Where ya been hiding :>)))

    Looks great to me. The first one on the trees might..now i say might. (monitor here) be a tiny tad to the red side.
    Nothing to critical though.

    Second one to me looks spot on for color.

    (excues the very unscientific view) :>))))

    Merry Christmas and a Wonderful New Year to you and Yours. :>))))))
     
  10. Looks fine on my monitor, Christian. Exposure seems spot-on as well.
    If you plan to go to "du Moulin" during weekdays, drop me a line. I'd go if I'm free.

    Salutations,
     
  11. Hi Gale,
    nice to feel your warm presence ! Is it you asking where I have been hiding, with the avatar you have ? :wink:
    It is just that this is the busiest time of the year...
    Wishing you a Merry Christimas and kisses with a cold nose...
     
  12. Thanks for you assessment Frits. Sure that we would be fun - a weekday at Ile de la Visitation (these were taken there) or some other places near (how about Iles de Boucherville ?). I'll be out for the Holidays, but will be available after the first week of January.
    On se reparle.
