Well, it's 1 am GMT -5, so I guess it's time for POTD November.

I took this shot a few days ago with the mantis hanging upside down on a step. He was rather sluggish and sat through a lengthy photo shoot.

This was shot with my Canon S3 IS in macro mode. I believe it was shot in AV mode set at f/3.5 with a resultant exposure time of 1/50 sec.

you guys have your voting ballot's mailed to you? and you have to sign it?

Yes, here in Oregon we've had vote by mail for several years now. When you register to vote, ballots are mailed to your home address. Once you fill out the ballot, you place it inside a secrecy envelope, then enclose that in the return envelope which is included. The back of the ballot return envelope must be signed by the voter so they can check you off the voter rolls as having voted. But, once they open that envelope, the sealed secrecy envelope is put with all the other sealed ballots so there is complete privacy of the actual ballot. In addition to being able to put it in the mail, there are numerous ballot drop boxes around the city/county where you can just drop it off, up until the deadline for voting. The ballots are usually mailed out 2-3 weeks before the election, and can be returned anytime up until the voting closes. It seems to work pretty well, but isn't quite as "fun" as going to the polls on election day and waiting in line to vote.

I know the 1 photo/day rule... but this is just for illustrative purposes...

Thanks! I have just got my first DSLR (a200) and got a Tamron 70-300mm lens with it so I went to London Zoo to take it for a spin. Im really pleased with the results I got considering they are both 'budget' pieces of kit. Really enjoying my photography now. This was taken at 300mm.

Kyle? you hit the DOF nail on the head with that shot, very cool & digitalfrog, perfect timing and exposure as mentioned. That's a really nice handheld shot TheReef!

Here's a natural light shot I took of the carats from yesterday's wedding. This is from the JPEG, I'll probably tweak the exposure a little on the RAW in Aperture.

So far, I have been nearly useless at capturing motion in photos, I'm only getting results with static landscapes, macro shots and so forth.

ISO 800??? Wow; so little noise for an ISO 800 HDR. How do you manage to get these stunning results? Please help us mortals.

Background on this image... at the observation deck at Rockefeller Center they don't allow mounted tripods - much like the Empire State Building doesn't either. And, there's really no place to set the camera on top of at Rockefeller Center, because most of the observation deck is indoors, and the outdoor portions have body-high glass to prevent suicides. So on the indoor part of the observation deck I had to rest the camera kind of on the ground, but with my New York Lonely Planet book and my lens cap kind of propping it up two or three inches so the image wouldn't be impeded by the floor or wall or whatever.

I knew I wanted a multiple shot HDR here and was gonna be stuck with three bracketed ones - so I set the aperture as wide as it would go (f/4.0 on my Canon 17-40), and kept having to bump up the ISO again and again because even with the wide aperture there wasn't enough brightness. Oh, did I mention a few days earlier the cable release port on my 5D busted in a hard fall? So, I couldn't use the cable release, so I had to hold down the shutter button on the camera, which necessitated activating both the auto bracketing and the burst mode at the same time, and it turned out ISO 800 seemed to be the lowest I could get.

Now, keep in mind a couple of things - the 5D with its full frame sensor often does very well in terms of noise management - but there was still way too much noise in the sky after running the thing through Photomatix. So in Photoshop I had to then run the image through my Noiseware Standard filter a couple of times, topped off by using the Blur Tool in Photoshop a moderate amount over all of the sky to soften it up further.

EDIT -- thanks PKennethV!

Thanks. beautiful shot. I'm shooting the 50mm 1.4 with the D300. Despite having some big glass the 50 is my favorite prime by far. I'm considering a D700 later on. Paired with the 50 it could practically shoot in the dark.

BTW, Plymouthbreezer, when you send an abusive PM, there's really no need to put asterisks instead of the profanities. Abusive messages are unmoderated. But if you only want uncritical responses to your pix, then maybe you should think twice about posting them on a public forum...

Hi... is this HDR (paler sky behind the tree... slightly out of focus, far left)? If so, I don't see how it could help... in that the scene is very evenly lit already...

Hi, yes it is an HDR. I saw the paleness behind the tree too and wasn't too happy with that. As for the far left its not in focus at all even in the original.
Once again I'm new to this so I didn't know what route to take to make it "POP".
Maybe I will try something in Lightroom?
Thanks for the comments. Any suggestions appreciated.

And of course, great capture as usual Doylem :)

My point was simply that you don't need HDR at all for a normal, well-lit scene... :)

To make a scene 'pop', IMO, it's all about the light (ie not post-processing at all)...

Not sure about anyone else here but I don't photoshop in the reflections, it's as they are out of the camera. I'm not a fan of over post processing my photo's (Mainly as I'm not too good at it) however I do use a polariser a lot of the time which when set correctly really helps your reflections. The last shot I posted here was with a polariser but to be honest the water was so still the reflection was popping out anyway. :)

Post-processing is still a blunt instrument, IMO, compared to the nuances of light, colour and tone to be found in the natural world. For a perfect 'mirror image' of mountains in a lake, you need the water to be as calm as a mill-pond: conditions that are commonly found at dawn, less often in the middle of the day. The 'secret' is being in the right place, at the right time, and being prepared to wait.

I'd rather spend time in the landscape, waiting for the light to do something special... rather than hunched over my laptop with an image in Photoshop... :)

Hear Hear Mr Doylem, I couldn't agree more ! Early morning rises and late night drives home going to and from shoot's that just makes it all the more fun. The only downside is driving all day somewhere to get a shot and then standing in the pouring rain with zero visibility thinking "When can I come back here " :D

Doylem, I always love your pictures, somehow the scenery you shoot seems to always have very interesting lighting. Here too you get the nice golden sun in the foreground with the dark clouds and the shaded parts in the distance. Love the scenery in your homeland.
I personally find this picture ever so slightly under-exposed, but thats an opinion thing. Thanks for posting.

Many thanks. My favourite weather forecast is "changeable", and I go out taking pictures when a lot of people might stay at home. It means I get wet a lot, but when the sun does make an appearance - through a small 'aperture' in the cloud cover - it makes for dramatic (and naturally saturated) colours.

Sorry for the late reply...i haven't been here in a few days. It's a 107" roll of seamless white paper blown to white with a strobe. For the reflection, I put a white tile board on the ground (it's basically like the surface of a whiteboard).

I'm intrigued by your shot; just a shame I need to scroll down to see the whole thing. I like the way it 'works' in either two or three dimensions. It can be viewed as a realistic scene... or as patterns on a flat plane. It's almost like an optical illusion (an illusion helped by the absense of shadows, but marred a little by the sign and rubbish on the tarmac).

The blue of the building is a perfect match - tonally - for the orange-brown of the temporary hoardings. And there's the contrast between the geometry of windows and the diagonal shapes below. A touch of Mondrian??

I'd be interested to know what your thoughts were, as you composed the shot and pressed the shutter... :)

love the picture
thank you

[...]

I'd be interested to know what your thoughts were, as you composed the shot and pressed the shutter... :)
First of all: thank you

Then I'll share my thoughts on how it came to be:

This scene is in a location I walk (or drive) by several times a week. To the right of the blue building is a train station and to the left a boring, dull building and then a street.

I always liked how the building stood out and gave it's bland surrounding a touch of colour. I also like simple geometric shapes and repeating patterns.
This is the reason I opted for the flat appearance of the building. (which had to be done in post, as I do not have a T/S lens)

Before they put up those plywood panels, the ground was covered in light gray concrete with a few benches standing here and there. I wanted to take a picture there numerous times, but the scene lacked contrast and including the surroundings would have meant to using a shorter focal length or moving back, thus losing the finely grained texture of the building.

The construction site is already there for 1.5 months (train station) and they put up metal fences at first (just like at a different train station construction site in town). The curved pathway was already there, due to the nature of the site.

Last week I saw that they replaced the metal fence with plywood. There I had the contrast I was looking for. The clash of colours, blue/orange, black/white pleased my eye.

It looked good already, but the harsh shadows of the unusual amount of sun for this season didn't allow to make it look photo-good.
And then there was yesterday, a dull gray day, it looked good.

I composed it this way because I like
-geometric structures with texture
-contrast in colour
-something that adds more depth to the structure (pathway and plywood)
-when there is an element of "mystery" to it (where does the path lead? and what's outside of the hoarding?)
-things pointing to things (the arrow on the floor)

Also I do like how the building can act as a sky replacement with strange, boxy clouds.

With the above plan made I had to wait until there was just the right amount of people (this path is highly frequented by travelers) so that the arrow actually pointed to something specific.

on image size: I like to have 900px on the long side for web use. Through playing around I have found that this size provides the ideal trade off between having enough fine texture preserved and image size.
For my pictures that is.


I hope my writing makes sense and I didn't miss anything.


have a nice day.

Well, I feel vindicated... ;)

I see so many posters (here and elsewhere) wanting to know how they can put something right in Photoshop that they could (should?) have got right before they pressed the shutter. It really does seem easier, IMO, to spend time sorting out a composition. All it takes, 90% of the time, is to take a few steps left or right... and look into all four corners of the image.

The explanation above shows some interesting thought processes...

Very nice. Is this not post processed at all? I love all your work and it must be true the lighting helps a lot.
However, whenever I take pictures and sometimes even in bright light they just seem so dull, the colours, so that is why I have to post process a little so it comes out the way I saw it.
Well I am a total noob so I probably don't know what I am doing. One day I will learn!

Thanks... this pic is pretty much as it came out of the camera. There was next to no ambient light, and the cars were just starting to put their side lights on. There's a little window of time, in every day, when ambient light and artificial lights achieve a kind of balance.

I put the camera on a tripod and experimented with a few shutter speeds. This is about a second, which blurred the cars while still making them recognisable as cars (not just streaks).

Post-processing: typically I 'up' the saturation and contrast a tad.

Dull colours can come about, ironically, from shooting in bright sunlight out of a clear blue sky, in the middle of the day. It can 'flatten' the scene, reducing colour saturation and contrast, making it look 2-D (rather than 3-D). The conditions I prefer are where the light comes through a small(ish) break in the clouds. It's like the difference between a room lit by a bare bulb, and a room semi-lit by a spotlight.

The 'spotlight' effect of 'directional' lighting creates contrast (between lit and shadowed areas), boosting colour and contrast quite naturally (ie little or no need for pp). I'm lazy, and take the easy way whenever I can...

This is possibly the best HDR shot I've seen from you. I love the way the "arm" of the traffic light meets with and echoes the upraised arm of the man on the billboard, which in turn echoes the verticality of just about everything in the image, right down to the flaming torch on the "Argent" sign. The photo seems to assert a triumph of urbanity, which appears (literally in this image) to have effaced humanity. The image is almost apocalyptic in that regard. The complimentary color scheme works really well to heighten the sense of conflict. Well done.

This is the challenge, isn't it... to shoot the right place in the best light.

You see lots of pix of the right place... but in dull, drab, unrevealing light...

And you see lots of pix taken at the right time - a glorious sunset, say - but shot out of a bedroom window, when all you can see is the garage roof and some power lines. :(

I appreciate I have more time than most to wait for the right moment. But I reckon most folk would have the time to 'commit' to maybe one image per week. One shot where you don't compromise: maybe taking notes about what the best time to shoot might be, and keep going back until you get something a bit special. And take what you need - tripod, for example - so you don't have to push the ISO up or try to shoot hand-held at 1/10sec. Then there'd be one image per week to be proud of... and you wouldn't have to say "If only I'd taken the right lens" or "If only I'd had more time".

Just me thinking out loud... :)

This is what I was trying to say too. I appreciate it's hard for people to find the time to devote to photography... which is why it might be better to 'commit' to one image a week, instead of just filling up the hard drive with pix they know they could do better, given the chance....

@ Steamie and Doylem : beautiful posts lately. You both are an inspiration. I wish I had the time and patience Doylem has to wait for the 'light', and the forethought to bring the right equipment.

I was in Phoenix for my nephew's birthday, and decided to drive back home through Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon, since I had my camera with me (but forgot the tripod).

Having been a silent observer for quite a while in these forums, I have to say, this place keeps getting better.

@Doylem, I really liked the cityscape picture you took last month. Seeing your rush hour pic, I can't help but wonder if you're getting closer to urban environments. Are you still able to wait for the lighting to get "interesting" in those settings?

@Edge100, your shot of the CN tower really pushes me to get out with my camera more often. Being an enthusiastic beginner, I love seeing what everyone is doing here.

@Valdore, I look forward to seeing the results of your helicopter flight.

@Longkc, I'd be interested in knowing more on the settings you used for the picture of the cheetah.

Great shot...

Did you use an ND filter, to help make the clouds look more dynamic? Or a bit of Photoshop magic? Or ??

I'm intrigued... ;)

Outstanding photo! I second the question about whether or not you used an ND filter. Do tell!

I almost don't want to post mine for today juxtaposed with that shot, but I bothered to upload it, so here it is:

Just get an EXIF viewer for your browser. His info is intact in the photo itself. I use the viewer for Firefox:

From Rally NY last weekend, Nikon 12-24. It was my first real attempt at panning and I was having an issue at this location. Cars were in their top gear on the rev limiter. Passing at probably 120+ MPH.

I have some a lot more better pictures from the shoot but I was proud of how the panning came out. However I dont like how the front of the car is almost sharp while the back is blurred. Guess thats what happens when you are not exactly parallel with the subject.

The san fran shot is totally amazing.

Here is a shot of the wick. It's a 153 year old building being demolished today. It was up for debate as a heritage building, yet it wasn't going well and the owner set it on fire. Heritage status totally dismissed. It's probably going to be a parking lot. =/

We're on the same boat! I've just started taking portraits, after years of taking macros. You're doing a much better job than I am, though. ;)

Thanks , This looks fantastic, have you tried taking any portraits with your macro lens, I'm using my 90mm macro for my portrait shots .
