Poor Ted

Untitled #54

Posted on Sat 7th Apr, 2007, 1:29pm

ISO: 100, Shutter speed: 1/250, Aperture: f/5.6,
Camera: Canon EOS 20D, Flash: None, Cropping: None,
Lens: Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 EX DC, Focal length: 18mm,
Captured: 21st January 2006, 3:20pm,

Another archive raid and this is a classic example of why you should always shoot Raw, even if you don't know anything about the format.

Back when this was taken I didn't have the photoshop skills to do it justice but being able to go back to the Raw file has meant that now, over a year later, I've ended up with one of my favourite images to date.

Ooh, taken on my birthday! I'm liking the authorative stance of the metal structure surrounding the train. I can almost imagine it being a massive robot like claw, like you see in scrapyards - ready to toss the new arrival onto the rusty pile of trains. Nice one Jamey

Nice angle, nice colour, well captured. Well done!

Was the train moving? If it was its a great capture! I am liking the colouring in the shot, it all fits in nicely.

All those angular shapes make for a really strong composition. You've had this warm/cool thing going on in your last couple of images that I really like.

I like the way these angles work together here and you got a great colour in that sky. Contrasts nicely with the train.

It's a great angle to take the shot, as it reminds me of a roller coaster

I can see why you like this image alot. I like it too. Has a rather smoothness feel to it.

Great colours and I like the angle. Very nice shot.

I like the "cleanness" of the image, the shadows, the angle and the sheer dynamism.

I agree, it's a great shot. I love the shapes. I've never been confident enough to shoot in RAW mode (yet) so can you tell me how RAW enabled you to improve the shot in comparison to if you had shot a JPEG? (forgive me if that's a naƮve! question).

There are quite a few articles about the merits of shooting Raw, although I don't have any specific links I'm afraid. You ought to be able to find plenty of reading material through a quick Google but in a nutshell, it allows you to tweak exposure, white balance and process images while retaining more optical quality than a Jpeg. But it's not something you'd notice from a websize Jpeg, admittedly.
