Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

Opinions please?

I like the composition of them, no 4 is the best imo. They don't seem quite as sharp as they could be either, and the colours seem a little flat. Perhaps a little editing tweak may resolve the latter issue.

I have an issue with one of my lens. An error message comes up that tells me to clean the lens contacts. I assume the contacts are the brass things on the rim. I have cleaned then but the message still appears. I know it isn't the camera as the message appears on both cameras. It is a zoom lens and the problem seems to occur at close to the max.

 

Any suggestions?

 

The lens isn't that expensive and I m also contemplating replacing it when funds allow.

My very first long exposure, When i say long i mean all of 2 seconds, was during good light, shot at f/32 and only had an ND4 and a CPL to help me out, ISO 100.

There's a time and a place for post-processing - nothing wrong with it if it gives a good effect.

What does it mean

Have you lifted the actual Durdle Door, there seems to be a slight light rim around it particularly around the sky (I'm on a poor display so it could be that),

Other than an increase to the shadows on the rock itself and a general levels adjust nothing else, what did you mean "lifted"

Brightened is what I mean, not lifted as in nicked.

 

When you brighten something selectively you can some time get a bleeding into the area around depending on your feathering etc.

 

You seem to have a brightness fringe that has bled into the sky.

Now you say it, now I see it. Why is this? Is it a software fault/issue/feature and is it common to all/most packages?

Its down to the skill of the processing, if you simply select the area to lighten you will finish up with missed bits, and over lapping bits. In that case you get bits that shouldn't be brightened lifted and bits that should be lightened missed. To overcome this you can feather the edge so at the edge of the selected area the adjustment fades. This facility is common to almost allow editing tools.

 

The problem with that is that it can create halos if the amount of change is quite strong.

 

Using layers and editing individual elements on each layer can help, you then have to select the right blending mode.

 

Another way to overcome the halo effect is to use dodge and burn to  the edges (depending on whether you need to darken or lighten the edge) to balance up the lightened/darkend part of the image.

 

It appears to me that the Durdledoor picture had the rock face selected and then feathered, brightness was applied, levels may have been better and adjusting the mid-tones to maintain the better contrast and then finally the edge where necessary should have had a slight dodge applied to reduce the exposure.

 

God that all sounds geeky. :(

We had a social documentary photographer cover the Denmark vs Norway game, as our normal sports photographer was not able to make it.  It is a very interesting set of photos, that I urge you to check out
