Post Processing / Star editing
« on: November 01, 2014, 09:30:19 AM »
Couple days ago I went to get couple pictures of stars before clouds rolls in and doing it for test purpose. Like never-ever edited star photos in the past... maybe 2 or 3 that's about it.
So back to beginning for the pictures. Took them with basic 30sec exposure at F2.8, ISO 2000 and 10sek selftimer to remove shake.
Some of the stars seems to be a bit "out-focused" but they aren't, there where a bit water spray going on at that windy weather so some of that spray got in my lens and made tricks to me.

Editing to that is all by LR and PS so what you think about that edit that I did for it. Over-edited or?

Landscape / Past weekend (HDR Landscape)

Hello CR!

Long story short.
During midsummer I went to cottage for couple days and that very evening temperature dropped just nicely few degrees down when it started to rain. It didn't rain for long but just enough to create this lovely smooth silky fog above the lake.
And what was even better than that. Was that swan family just passing by across to other side.

Also I tried to take HDR shot and have to say, I'm pretty pleased how it turned out!

Canon 7D, 35 & 55mm, 3exp. for Deck picture and single 1/60th for Swans, both F2.8 and ISO 200.

Landscape / Editing critique needed!

Hello CR!

I got this inspiration to try out different editing techniques, usually I have done everything with Lightroom.
But this time I tried something new with Photoshop. Luminosity masks and combining Lightroom and Luminosity mask editing style.
Got pretty amazing looks with it and that's why I'm here asking your critique about this.

My friend was enough kind to give couple pictures from his Japan trip last week.
Shot with:
• 5D Mark III
 • 16-35 F2.8L II - 16mm
 • ISO 100
 • 1/200th
 • F7.1

I'll add the original picture that haven't been edited and then three other pictures that have been edited with only Lightroom, then Photoshop using Luminosity Masks and lastly COMBINE of those.
Basic critique needed to this one, I would love to hear your thoughts of this one. 8)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Help to make my decision.
« on: January 25, 2013, 05:36:51 PM »
Help me to make right decision, I've been shooting with 7D now +2 years and been looking for moving to FF. Basically what my gear includes now is 7D with 17-55 F2.8 and basic kit 15-135 that is not used like at all.. and now shooting with 7D these couple years I've noticed that my pictures are almost 50% portraits and 50% landscapes, cityscapes etc.

What should I do, been looking for to get 5D Mark II?

Lenses / Buying used lens
« on: December 26, 2012, 05:15:02 AM »
Hey CR!

I would like to have advices to buying used lenses. I've been checking used lenses from internet now for while, mainly from CL.
And what I came up with was this one. That would be a lovely to get but as knowing internet... scams... that is one reason what have kept me away buying used stuff from internet.

Advices will be taken :)

Technical Support / Memory card compatibility
« on: August 25, 2012, 05:58:19 AM »
Are there any maximum memory card capacity what EOS systems aren't compatibility.
Haven't found nothing about supported card sizes so, are there EOS bodies which don't support like 64GB cards or bigger ones?

Third Party Manufacturers / Vanguard Equipment
« on: August 14, 2012, 10:13:24 AM »
I didn't find anything specific topic for Vanguard gear so though make one for you opinion about it.
So basic things first, I'm going to order a small package from Vanguard which holds in it:
 - UP-Rise 45 bp, Alta Pro 263AT and SBH-100 ballhead.

Vanguard has nice list of TIPA prizes on different products and some of them have got it twice so I would think it's pretty well and truly trusty but I would really love to hear your opinion about it.
