Re: Post-processing Challenge

If anyone wants to experiment with the techniques Darren showed tonight, this challenge is the perfect opportunity. Remember: you're not producing an image for a competition/judge, it's about having fun and pushing your comfort zone - you definitely don't need to spend hours painting thousands of in...

Re: Post-processing Challenge

Doing this sort of image well is definitely a job for a graphics editor. Export two images - one exposed for the colour part and one exposed as mono (Lightroom's mono conversion does more than just desaturating), paste the colour as a layer over the mono and add a layer mask to hide it. For somethin...

Re: Photo Challenge 2019

However, you might be able to link to an image of the correct size on Flickr. Even if an image is hosted elsewhere, the limits still apply. To confirm what Mike says here, you can link using [url]flickr.com/etc[/url] to any size image, but embedding images with [img]flickr.com/etc[/img] is where th...

The 24-120 f/4 I have is shorter and has a different profile.

The cutaway looks similar to the 24-70 f/2.8 ED but not exactly the same - maybe an different iteration of that lens.

Re: Cutlery

Park Hill is across the road from the law courts in East Croydon - https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=17/51.36974/-0.09169

I picked it because it's close enough to where I work to visit during lunch, but there are definitely better parks where it'll be easier to get good viewpoints.

Re: Cutlery

Thanks all. :) What didnt workfor you Peter? A couple of things were bugging me, the softness/lack of detail and the specific scene/composition - I wanted more than just a single tree, but it was muddy and too many people around in the wrong places. The first image isn't as bad as I had thought, but...

Re: Cutlery

I had an idea to combine the cutlery challenge with the parks one I never managed to do. So a few weeks ago I spent a lunchtime over at Park Hill trying to get something, but the light was poor and I didn't come away with any shots I was happy with. I was intending to go back and try again, but sinc...

Re: Smartphone Pics

The Samsung Galaxy J3 comes with either 1.5G or 2GB memory and 8GB internal storage, and comes with two micro SIM slots. The second SIM slot doubles as a a micro SD slot - but they just happen to share a slot - SIM and SD are two different things. SIM cards are for identifying the device to the mobi...

Re: Smartphone Pics

although with some high end phones now costing in the region of £1,000 I would expect decent imaging That's how much the devices are being sold for, not how much the components+manufacturing cost - over half the price of those flagship iPhone/Galaxy/etc is pure profit. The camera components in them...
