300mm B&W Portrait
« on: November 01, 2013, 02:48:39 PM »
I recently invested in a Canon 70-300L to pair with my 6D.  This was taken at the thick end of the zoom range at Edinburgh Castle.  I have Parkinson's tremor, and I sway a fair bit; and even with  IS a certain amount of micro tremor occurs.  So....I am pleased at how this turned out.

PP'd in LR5 to my own recipe.

And here is a self portrait using the 6D paired to my 17-40L

I really like your self-portrait.

I like the B&W processing of both shots. To my taste, the face (especially the beard) on the first one is over-sharpened. Across the rest of the image that level of sharpening looks good though.

Solid work, man.

Thanks for stopping by to comment, appreciate it.  I have replaced the 1st pic with one with less clarity and sharpening in LR5.  Better?

Thanks

They both look great to me!  Very cool, imo.

Just a little puppy trying to make it in a big digital world.
