At last. some photos from Knight Inlet
Posted By: Dma110, 10-10-2011, 01:15 PM

Finally got some work done on our vacation shots from Knight Inlet / Vancouver. Took over 4,000 shots. Now down to just under 1600. Still got a way to go though. Thought I would post a few, hopefully for your enjoyment. I will spread them over 2-3 posts.

First two were shot from our small floatplane on the way there. Next , a couple of bears and a egret.

Knight Inlet is a lodge floating on an inlet in British Columbia. They offer bear viewing ( why we went ), several different hikes, kayaking and whale watches. Very popular with people from England, Australia, New Zealand, and Germany. Barb and were the only americians there.

Great shots.

I love the colours in the second shot.

What lens did you use to get the 3rd shot ? (close-up on the bear)

Used the Bigma. It's big and heavy, but it seems to do the job

Great shots! That first aerial shot has some smokin' tidal currents ripping along there, looks like it would make for a fun drift dive That would be as much fun as a fishing and bear-watching trip...

Very nice images Dennis love the first and third, sure sounds like you had fun. The bird I believe is a Great Blue Heron?

Thanks Heinrich. We had a tremendous time. Any time we see bears ( and of course I gots me a camera ) we have a great time. Regarding the bird, don't know much about them, but I believe it is a blue heron.

Hi
I wonder whether the first two shots where taken through an aircraft window. I only say this because I have taken similar shots like these when flying into Milford Sound (New Zealend) and they came out blue like this also. With your permission, would you allow me to post a corrected one ? just to see if you like it ? (I think you will be pleasantly surprised)

Greetings

Schraubstock,
Yes indeed taken thru the plane window. I would love to see what you could do with it. I do very little post processing and what I do is with picassa. I know I'm supposed to use Photoshop or lightroom, but not real computer savvy, to cheap to spend that much money, and so far to lazy to learn. I would be grateful if that could show me what could be done. Maybe that would motivate me to get off my butt and try more advanced processing programs

Thanks Dennis
I am glad you took my post in good spirit. Sometimes I just cant help myself, when I see a nice photograph and the colour is all wrong I feel the urge to correct it. I do this a lot here for my own interest just to see for myself how good some of the shots, (expertly taken/framed and good motives) would look like if only the colour rendering was correct. I am sure some of the people that post their pics here would be absolutely blown away if they could see their pictures.

I have done only one shot as good as I can coming from a low res compressed 8bit JPG file. There is a bit of detail in the sky but I cant do anything with it, one would need the original RAW. Still the result I think is quite pleasing. Tell me what you think.

Greetings

I do like what you did. Mine is more of a moody, hazy feeling, while yours has more pazazz & detail.
What processing do you use? It looks like I may have to try it. Plus, how complicated is it to learn.
Remember, I'm an old fart and have trouble complicated programs.
