If I might add a question. Does anyone here know how to make this filmatic effect in the pictures of Tastino (quoted by SJT, http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=302.240 )  Apart from being great shots, I would love if there was a good tutorial on how to acheive this effect

I'm telling you, the background wall of trees, the tree at right at the middle distance in the beam of light, the island of trees, the boat....those are all completely separate photos composited and blended beautifully.

have a look at this tutorial: http://photoshoptutorials.ws/photoshop-tutorials/photo-manipulation/create-this-breathtaking-photo-manipulation-of-a-tightrope-dancer-in-photoshop/

Pretty cool. Thanks :)

Quasi, no problem.  I bet you could sell prints of it!

You are too kind :)

Pedro, nice topic...I too am a night shooting enthusiast.

Mr. Bean, what hemisphere was that top photo of the Milky Way shot from?  Those two "clouds" to the right side...I suspect they have a name...starting with "M"...never seen pics of them before.  Also...Do you prefer the Zeiss 15mm over the 21mm?

Quasimodo, I love your Shanghai panorama!  However, I don't care for the grayscale version at all.  Did you ever do a print of either version, and if so, how large?

Thank you! The grayscale version was just to test for the OP here. I have not gotten the chance to print it yet. I also nelieve that I have a way to go in PP before doing so :)

I thought for a while when first reading your post that he was using alpha channel adjustments. Having now seen the video it seems he has just gone and altered the view to grayscale. Click on Image - Mode - Grayscale (this is just a viewing mode while working on the file), and change it back when done with the adjustments. Working in a grayscale is much easier as it's easier to see the adjustments without being distracted by the colors and colorfringing and such.


I have CS 6, but the same should apply. Also, be sure to shoot in Raw, as it gives you more flexibility in pulling on curves and levels afterwards.

Good luck.

Hi, thanks for your post. My problem is in CS2 if I have the color tiff on my PS desktop and click image-mode-grayscales, PS asks me: "Do you want to discard the color data?" And then as far as I can see it gets iretrievable afterwards...hmmm.

@MrBean: Thanks a lot! I will do so. Did several like that before, always like touch the limits ;- at least photography wise...

Cheers, Pedro

Hmmm.. Seems you are right. I have never used this, but gotten a grey picture when sharpening in alpha layers, so I thought it was retriveable. It probably is, I just don't know how to do it. There are however many people in this forum who are experts on photoshop.

Below is a picture (actually eight taken with the 16-35 II, and stiched) I took some weeks ago in Shanghai. Below that is the same picture converted to grayscale, the one I was not able to revert.. I'd be interested in seeing how to solve this :)

Good luck.

I just bought the 135L and love it. What I really need is a 50mm that is as good as Sigma 35 1.4.

While I really like the Siggy Art 35, I would be hard pressed to give up my favorite Canon lens - 135. That is even if Canon was to release a new "improved" version of it, be it with IS, aperture of 1.8 or whatever. IMHO it is perfect just as it is.

Hi all, thanks for the kind comments. Im ok didnt get ran over. Came bloody close though on a few occassions.The horse pic is a horse pic, its not a construction of 20 images as im not clever enough to do that but you have given me an idea....hmmmm!!!. I was with some fellow photographers and the guy who ran it told me all the horses in the Camargue are owned by someone. Some live on farms others out in the marshland. Anyhow, heres a one to show how close they got and where using a 1D series really came in handy. Standing in a marsh with my waders when they ran past wasnt my cleverest idea. Still doing stupid stuff for a picture is something we all on here appreciate. My wife on the other hands just thinks we're all nuts. Ive kept the best stuff for my little web site.

The first one here is spectacular!

... but what seems to to be hard for many is that it now seems that this particular third party lens is actually better than its original counterpart...

Canon has been over taken in the sensor department by Sony/Nikon and now they're being overtaken in the lens department.


But you're overlooking that fact that the EOS system delivers.

Me or Dilbert? :) I agree, the EOS works great, and I have no plans on switching

You have a APS-H and a full frame... I would say that with the improvement on your 5d III the loss of a stop will not affect you too much. Keep the 24-105 and get a couple of primes like suggested.

With all due respect to the direction this thread has taken (talk about getting off topic!), Canon is still the leader in both patents filed and overall profit.  It is a highly rated corporation that has a legacy of success that continues into the present.  Do they frustrate me at times?  Sure.  Do I agree with every one of their priorities? No.  But I love my Canon gear and it continues to provide me with great images that pleases my clients, stock agencies, and even magazines.  I highly doubt bankruptcy is in their near future.

Very graphic! And the plane is a good touch... :)

Is your sensor dirty?

thx...one plane after another every minute, that part was easy.  getting the right location for composition so that my shot didn't have any names viewable on a headstone was tougher.

sensor - i don't think so, why?
