United Kingdom & Ireland / Re: Final rules for Olympics Spectators?
« on: August 02, 2012, 08:21:08 AM »
Nobody even looked at my camera or lenses. They just don't want you obstructing the views of other spectators...

Nobody paid a moments notice to my camera or lenses. The only time I was stopped was when I forgot I had a full bottle of water in my bag going through security. Once a soldier had satisfied himself that it was not explosive or poisonous by asking me to drink some, he let me through  ;D

Brilliant atmosphere, great fun. Eat your heart out Mitt Romney!

To get back to the photographs: I like them. I like the atmosphere they create. Who doesn't use exposure to create an effect they like. Good stuff!

EOS Bodies / Re: New Upgraders (to FF) - what is your experience
« on: July 20, 2012, 07:40:00 AM »
i went from a 40D to the 5D Mk3 and absolutely love it, the down side is the desire now to get a longer lens, as I was used to the 100-400 L & 70-200 F2.8 L on the 40D body with a 2x extender so I am missing reach that I had before, the biggest headache for me is that  I certainly dont use all of the camera potential and would love to find a 5D Mk3 training course in London or a pro to talk me through its versatility for the day...

Hey Scotty - if you find a course let me know as well! Failing which, if you want to explore using a 5Diii with another recent (very happy) purchaser, I would be delighted to find some time for a few hours of conversation and a photoshoot one weekday evening (I work just near Covent Garden).

The last really good Pentax cameras were the K and then the ME Super. But I am going back to 35mm film! I loved my ME Super, I then had a couple of truly awful Pentax autofocus SLRs and swore I would never go back.

Why  ISO 6400? Why 1/6400?

Just curious... ;D

Darn good questions!! It seemed very dark at the time apart from the shafts of sunlight which were very, very bright. But also the smoke was swirling ferociously and I wanted to stop it. Inevitably it took some post processing on the lights and darks. When I looked up the EXIF data to put here, it did seem more than a touch bizarre, I will agree, but personally, I quite liked the end result!!!

RCARCA,

Love the pic of the Thames, makes me feel home sick. Has a Constable quality about it which would look great on a wall.
Very beautiful indeed, stunning colors. I'd put it up alright. Is that an HDR shot?

Thanks Gary and Rat... Comments much appreciated! No, not HDR, little bit of post processing in Lightroom 4.

Cheers

Richard

PS I have to work out how to get hold of a printer that will do it justice!!!

Seriously consider getting it professionally printed and maybe in Gisclee, it really is that good.

Gary

:-) really appreciated!
