Railway bridge + View to the Alps
Posted By: AprilFool, 02-21-2008, 03:15 PM

Took my car for a spin a couple of weeks ago and here are the results:

Railway bridge

shot #1

Pentax FA50 @ f3.5 , 1/1250s, ISO 100

shot #2

Sigma 17-70 @ 17mm, f3.5 , 1/320s, ISO 100

View to the Alps

Sigma 17-70 @ 17mm, f8, 1/200s, ISO 320

The second one is my favourite and I must say that I realy looooove my Sigma 17-70. This lens is worth every penny.

What do you think? Commnts appreciated.

Still no images. Remember to link to the actual image file (ending *.jpg) not the link to the Picasa page where your photo is.

Use the links options Picasa offers in the right column. Copy the link but grab only the image address from the link Picasa offers. Hope this helps, I really would like to see your Alps photos...

The links do not work in Mozilla. Copy and paste the URL of this thread into IE - right click on the red X - copy the properties 'location' URL - paste and *whew* finally view the images.

Please let me know, if you can see the pics now. I really don't know why I can see them in IE, but not in Opera.

Yep i can see them now The 3rd one is excellent, looks like it might need straightening though along the horizontal. You certainly have some rugged terrain there. Personally I would crop alot of the sky off and make it more of a panoramic.

lol, I just realised reading your post that those are the Alps! I suppose they certainly should be rugged.

I think number 1 is terrific. The shallow depth of field and out of focus background make it into an outstanding shot.

I agree with Tom that a panoramic perpective would improve number 3 even further (awesome scenery!).

The second image is my favorite too. I like the angle and composition of that one a lot. I like the last shot too. It makes me really want to be on that road. Nice b&w conversions. How did you go about your pp?

wow. great photo of the mountains in both the 2nd and last shot. I love that you were able to get mountains without that hazy appearance that can sometimes happen. I bet that last one looks awesome in color

The colors are really not that great this time of year. But they will be in the summer, which means that I will be going there at least one more time this year.

@LaRee: I shoot in RAW and when converting to B&W I always use the saturation control in ACR, as for this last shot. For the second shot I did the same and I increased the saturation for the greens and the blues.
