Thanks - he looks a bit angry though!
Ken and all the others have inspired me to also try out a few of my sunsets. Here you go........
I'm loving what I've seen so far. You have to be prepared, or very quick when the opportunity presents itself.
Nice, especially the second one. What lens did you use?
Still no one answered my question lol. Is it safe to clean the lens and LCD screen with alcohol wipe ?
alcohol should be used sparingly. On glass it should be fine, although I am not sure how the coatings react over long term use. On plastic, alcohol can leach things or alter the plastic, depending on the plastic. Perspex becomes turbid after long term use. Given that one does not know how the plastic of the lens or the body reacts, it's probably better to avoid it. Also, the LCD screen, I am not sure if that is actually glass or plastic.
I have a screen protector on my LCD, so just wipe it with a cloth (and some breath) if necessary.
For the lens elements, first rocket blower to remove dust as much as possible. You don't want to wipe the lens when scratchy dust particles are on it. A brush can help release particles. Only then I use microfiber cloth or clean cotton cloth to wipe, again with some breath if necessary. If there are some persistent grease spots, only then some lens cleaning fluid.
Fine, if you are standing among zebras.I beg to differ. You'd very easily lose the lens then!
yep sometimes it greys it out, try this, before going into apply image, get into the channels panel and pick the A channel(or any single channel) so its the only one visible.Meli,
edit: And yes, both methods are doing essentially the same thing, remove all info of the selected channel, you might want to duplicate your layer first!
from image menu > apply image > bg layer >channel A, set it to subtract (numbers in the side should be something like 2/128Hi Meli, thanks very much.
Alternatively, just fill the A channel with 50% grey
I am perplexed. After posting successfully a couple of days ago, I can't upload photos to the forum for about 48 hours. I can post words but no pictures. I tried JPEG all less that 4096 MB (quite a bit smaller, in fact) using multiple pictures and cannot get them to load. I have tried both Firefox and IE. I've disabled and re-enabled cookies, pop-up blockers And turned my antivirus software on and off. When I load an attachment and click post, I see a message "Waiting for Canon Rumors" but then the page goes blank dn nothing ha been posted. I know this is a photo forum and not a computer forum, but I'd appreciate any ideas from out there.There is simply something wrong with the JPEG, and the CR site cannot display it.
I am not a geek (sorry) but I am fairly adept at using a PC and making adjustments to the OS and the device. FWIW, I've been using a Win7 Pro with 8GB mem and have lot's of disk space.
Thanks. I've seen something like this posted here before but could not find that thread.
The Eurasian Sparrow hawk is shot from 5 meters, 100 iso and 65 mm (in my garden). I did only a crop from landscape to portrait.Hi nice shots. So did you happen to be 5m away when the Hawk landed or did you manage to move there?
The Common Kingfisher is shot from 13 meters, 80 iso and 1200 mm. The height was 2.2x more. So from the 12Mp, 2.5Mp is left?
We had a Blue Tit in the garden which we thought only had one leg, it would lean against things.Black VultureBlack Crowned Night Heron (Canon 1Dx, 300mm 2.8 II)
I love your bird pictures MRLinVA. Nice and sharp. Looking forward to see more of them.
+1, very nice. Is it me or does that BCN Heron only have one leg?
Perhaps a pirate..aarrrgghh
