Found This Spoon, Sir
Next photo >>



Posted on Sat 29th Jul, 2006, 7:49pm

ISO: 100, Shutter speed: 1/60, Aperture: f/5.6,
Camera: Canon EOS 20D, Flash: Fill, Cropping: None,
Lens: Sigma 10-20mm F4-5.6 EX DC HSM, Focal length: 10mm,
Captured: 23rd July 2006, 7:35pm,

You know I said that spoon photo was the only decent shot from that particular trip out? Well I guess I lied. I took this at the same time but didn't think I'd be able to do much with it as the sky was much brighter than the ground.

I must admit it wasn't easy to process and there's a fair amount of noise in the formerly-dark areas when you look at the hi-res but overall I'm quite happy to have salvaged a shot and it's a little different from my usual stuff, which I'm also happy about.

lovely Jamey, well done

Jamey, Sat 29th Jul, 2006, 8:29pm
Just realised I forgot to name the cow, as is now customary among the trickery massive. So I'll call it Casey.

Good one J. I like those colors in the sky.

Nice colourful shot Jamey you sure you took it? ;) It looks almost HDR'ish in places.

Fantastic. I would say you more than "salvaged" it. You got an almost candle apple green out of that grass. Nice.

Yup...looks almost hdr to me too. Nice work Jamey.

Hdr or not, this is amazing. Perfect exposure in my book!

I'm gonna be a tadge negative here. The foreground looks unnaturally bright to me. There's no way the sky is giving off that much light (hence the HDR comrents). However, I do think the shot as a whole works, the composition is good and you captured a whole range of colours that compliment each other nicely. My word I've waffled a lot there, think I'll shut u.......

Overall I think the composition works. I do have "problems" with the foreground. It looks very bright as though a massive amount of lght has just been introduced over the viewer's left shoulder. There's a glow like quality around the neck and shoulders of Casey which is always attractive in backlit animals but there are no shadows which kind of jars especially as the principal viewable light source is in the sky. And now I have jam on my keyboard.

I have to agree with milou about the brightness of the foreground and the glow of the cow, but its a great image with punchy colours... you mind me asking how you did the sky.. at the moment I'm using masked layers to darken them a little to get the right balance

Jamey, Sun 30th Jul, 2006, 8:42pm
That glow around the neck and shoulders is a bit annoying. Not 100% sure what caused it. Hmmm.

This kind of image appeals to me, I love this shot! Good save!
