Nice picture, thanks for share, very deep feeling, looks almost 3D.
so you are only processing within photomatix? nothing else?
Yup, well ACDSee Pro to rotate, and apply Lomo effect or Olton effect,
or some minor color changes, but really Photomatix is it.
you should at least have canons DPP available for some basic editing too
What's that, got a link? Is it free? I'm a poor guy, so no "Adobe expensive Shop" for me.
18-55? kit lens?
stop it down to f8 to f11 and it should not be too bad
Okay, woooosh! Right over my head,
I'm a super super noob / novice at this,
how do I do that? A youtube video is
best for me. I'm a hands on learner.
also try not to go crazy with the strength slider in photomatix between 70 and 80 is not too bad
over 80 is too much most of the time
LOL! Yeah, I've learned that, so now I decide to either go as "natural a look" as possible, or go stright to grunge.
increasing micro contrast can help reduce halo effects but really with blue sky i have never ever been happy with photomatix results.
Yeah, Okinawa is all blue skies, and I've learned that one too, ...
I also think photomatix does really wierd things to folliage also people really dont look good after tone mapping the develop a zombie like look to them due the sickly cast their skin takes on.
Ha ha ha ...
yup, so true !
Thanks for the tips.
I want an L lens so freaking bad ! What's the cheapest L lens that'd be best for landscape?
