Landscape / Re: Post Your Best Landscapes
« on: February 21, 2015, 07:06:19 PM »
Hey guys,

NOTE: Click on the files to see them clearly. They look blurry for some reason on the main page.

Here is a shot from Matador Beach in Malibu, CA. The first is the fully edited version. The second is pretty much how it looked uploaded to Lightroom. I shot it at ISO 50 on my 5d Mark II. I find I can lift the shadows a lot more than even at ISO 100.

Any critique is appreciated.

EOS Bodies / Re: After a 50MP camera what is the next breakthrough?

My vote is also for more dynamic range (at least cleaner shadows). It's really nice to be able to use just one shot instead of combining multiple shots in PS.

I will be waiting to see what the A7R II looks like. It's hard to beat that Sony sensor, so I wish Canon would have joined them with the 50 mp sensor. I love Canon cameras, but I am not a fan of their sensors.

No wifi, no nfc? Has anyone heard anything different? That is a great feature for landscape photography!

Has there been an update on if this is in fact the Sony Exmor sensor? I apologize if someone has already mentioned it. Thanks in advance.

Very well done. By the way, your caption under your name is by far the best I've seen.

Hey guys,

I just came across this article on fstoppers: https://fstoppers.com/landscapes/us-forest-service-about-charge-photographers-take-photos-38489

What do you think? Will it affect the landscape photographer that sells photos (in large or small quantities) or will it not go through?

I am typically in the 17-24 range, but do go to 40 occasionally.

How is the 16-35 f4 at f11 compared to the 17-40? That seems to be the sharpest aperture on the 17-40 and where I typically set the lens for my landscapes. I'm just wondering if there is much to gain by upgrading. Thanks.

Do sensors make the camera?

-It's the most important part for me as a landscape photographer.

Am I missing something here? The Adorama website says $89 after rebate and B&H is $98 after the rebate.

I will add my version soon. My MacBook Pro is back at the Apple store getting the logic board replaced for the 3rd time. When I get it back, I'll post mine.

Thanks for the edit. The underexposed shot helps the sun to stand out there.

Looks great. Thanks for posting that. Did you export in srgb? I know when I've exported in ProPhoto before the colors don't look right.

Landscape / How Would You Edit This Bracketed Landscape?

Follow this link: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ib7a1n2lbotccdg/0bkSoLCrcy to download a bracketed series of a Maui sunset I took this past June. The image itself is not incredible, but I am curious to see different techniques for editing. I did this once before with a picture from Death Valley, but this is a bracketed series.

Feel free to download the files and edit the picture as you normally would. I would say to just use what is actually in the image already, although if you want to replace the sky, go for it--I'd be curious to know how that is done. Also, it would be great if you could post what program(s) and techniques you use to achieve the final result. You can do an HDR if you want or just use one image.

Also, the files are on Dropbox. You don't need Dropbox to download the files, but if you don't have it and want to get it for cloud storage, you can use this link: https://db.tt/oBwlTLd2 to do so. We would both get an extra 500mb of storage if you use that link. No need to do so if you don't want Dropbox though, just thought I would put it out there.
