Just post up your most recently taken photo.
its been post processed, modified WB, and additional contrast, clarity and sharpening.
i really like this idea. maybe a separate thread for smartphone camera photos?
Mine, straight jpeg from camera:
Is it just me or is the thumbnail image in the thread less vibrant/colour saturated than the original image? If you click on it then it looks fine but otherwise it looks wrong. Might need to get the guys to check it out when they get back from break, have noticed it in articles too.
@norman: I think it's fine for people to post camera phone photos in this thread, it's just a thread for people to post photos they've taken that they like.
@TsunamiJuan: Gorgeous shot. Gotta love the bokeh on the 100/2.8L IS Macro lens. I'm seriously considering getting a macro lens, don't think I could justify getting the 100/2.8L IS though lol. Will likely just end up with the non-VR Tamron 90/2.8 I think (only $300-$350 new from Hong Kong).
This photo was taken a few weeks ago but only just noticed it on my laptop. No macro lens or proper lighting (used onboard flash...), just taken with my trusty Canon 85/1.8 and some Christmas present wrapping paper as a backdrop on my dining room table lol.
@stenchlord Its a common problem when you reduce photos in size, alot of server side applications do a particularly bad job. Its worse if your going from 16 or 32bit color channels, Since most web posted content is 8bit color channels. So I generally go through and both edit the overall image size and sometimes image quality based on size. to help prevent this while posting online.
As for lenses, if it wasn't for the fact that I am looking for large format reproductions of stuff and I am looking to do a coffee table book, I probably would not of started investing in L glass. It definitely falls into the category of helps me do things faster. Which is something that is often talked about with pro products "they don't make you better, but they help you do things faster".
Missed the focus on this one, but it turned out okay for a quick snapshot. I played around with split toning and it really added the drama in the lighting back to the scene.
@stenchlord: Where was this picture taken? It looks like ruins, possibly in Mexico?
And awesome pictures everyone. Keep them coming and we will keep appreciating them.
@CouchPotatoTalk: All my shots were taken at the zoo (Taronga Zoo since I'm from Sydney, Australia), except the figurine which was taken in my dining room. Red Panda was pretty far off (around 30ft) since it was running in the back of it's exhibit, the lizard shot was taken through half-inch thick glass from about 3ft away, girl is a friend of mine who wanted to tag along to take some photos with me, was just a candid shot as she was looking at something past me.
Additional equipment -
Found a USB stick and it had some old photos on it from a few years back of a protest I went to called "Bums not Bombs". Was raining on and off so there weren't as many protestors as the press thought there would be so took this photo to try and show the press frenzy to get coverage.
In the end I believe this photo was used in one of the major newspapers.
Dog-sitting for a friend and had the EOS-M + 40mm f/2.8 STM in my pocket :D
It's a really nice combo to have with me all the time.
I was asked to shoot some pictures at my church's Christmas Eve service...
Is it just me or is the thumbnail image in the thread less vibrant/colour saturated than the original image?
That's probably because you're editing and/or exporting files in the Adobe RGB color space and web browsers primarily use sRGB instead. If you were to join us on the sRGB side of the fence, the discrepancy might go away.
I usually don't go out of my way to take photographs, though when I get to somewhere I think looks nice I usually take some pictures with my phone. These are from Västanåfallet (The Västanå Falls) in Ångermanland in Sweden. I took multiple pictures and stitched them together with Photoshops Photmerge script.
http://dl.dropbox.com/s/l2zwfzszgj5qcs7/1%20panorama.png This one doesn't really convey the size of this part of the fall very well. That part is about 15m across.
Shot during a photography field trip near Denver this fall:
Photo was taken during Christmas time visiting family.
Took some portraits at a Holiday lights event at our local zoo at night, challenging photos!
Shot outside my office at the Vietnam Memorial in downtown Chicago. First experiment with new CCTV lens. Loving it so far.
Finally had a chance to really play with the macro setup now that the work week is over, and my missing mounts showed up
Shot in color, Post converted to grayscale, Since its visually more appealing and covers up for the fine details of the surface having a prismatic effect under strong lighting due to pitting.
What do you plan to use this setup for?
@mclaren777: I've been chasing after being able to fill the frame of my camera with some of these small sub mm Ice crystals. I have a gallery spot for a month and I really want to do a large format print of a single Ice Crystal. So I am fighting to keep the amount of glass stuff has to pass through to a minimum.
Here are a couple macro shots I took of my Tyvek wallet.
Its taken with a 50mm and an Opteka macro filter. It's the macro portion of this filter kit http://opteka.com/35x.aspx
I lit it with my cell phone LED.
Nothing amazing just playing around. You have to be dead straight on with a flat object, otherwise portions will be out of focus.
