Nope, other than a little darkening of the sky its straight out of the camera (didnt have a CPL or any grads with me as i'd just been to the RL) taken with a Nikon D800, the dynamic range on this camera is superb, a full couple of stops better than a D3S or D700

that's neet without HDR, it bloody looks so go good on the dynamic range.

Linking this thread to the favourite pubs one, my local has a regular exhibition of photos from the local photography group. There are generally around 8 photos that are displayed at any one time for a couple of months, based around a theme chosen by the group and run along a similar line to the photo comp, whereby you have a month to take pictures that meet the theme to enter. You can enter up to 3 for consideration, and they are then voted for by the group, with the winning 8 (limited to one per person) being printed, professionally mounted and put on display/for sale.

 

Anyway, getting to the point.... having only just joined the group (I've been once and missed this months meet due to work commitments), I've just discovered that one of my entries has been chosen for the next exhibition entitled "5 mile radius". My first exhibited piece of work, and to say I'm dead chuffed would be an understatement. :D :D :D

Taken early morning on the way to work. Nearly froze my hands off in the 15 or so minutes I was up there taking a selection of shots.

Cheers. I'm slowly getting to know my way around Photoshop for basic editing, not that I've tweaked that one very much. This one however is very much more about experimentation.

Some of you may fancy this, its a photography course being run by Practical Photography magazine. Its free to sign up and take part, you'll just need the magazine each month to read up on the topics.

Some us think this "competition" is run by a photography school. Especially given the voting (I won't use the word bias), predictability.

It's nearly as predictable as Eurovision Song Contest.

Scenic picture of Cornwall/Devon/Yorkshire (moors)? Ah, another winner.

If someone took a photo of a dustbin, and called it Holmfirth it would probably get more votes than a picture of Windermere with a stunning sunset behind her.

I have a lot of time for Practical Photography - I might give this the once over.  Could do with a refresher on most things.

What a baby!!

this month, scene from the Dorset Coast is winning

Last month, a pic of some shadows taken by my missus won

the month before that a picture of a motorway won

the month before that a picture of Father Christmas in London won

No Cornwall, No Devon, No Moors and no Holmfirth

you've obviously got a bee in your bonnet about something and you're beginning to look like a spoilt baby

I subscribe to PP so I decide to sign up, as with yourself a bit of a refresher and something to force me to pick up the camera more often than I have been doing recently.

Cheers, will give that a go. I've certainly plenty to learn! Might even subscribe to the mag.

 

In the meantime, here's a shot I took earlier this evening over looking my house, then a bit of a mess about with Photoshop. It wasn't a deliberate attempt to start with, but it seems to have ended up with a painting style effect to it, which I think quite suits the scene.
