yosemite - water
Posted By: nostatic, 04-03-2008, 10:11 AM

Hard to be original shooting Yosemite, and it is a very difficult environment for digital (really high contrast/dynamic range). Anyway, a few shots of falls and water, mix of K20d with either 16-45/50-135/77ltd and Leica DLux3

Very magestic. I like some of your composition. Quick question, were your D-Lux 3 images shot in RAW or are those straight JPEGs from the camera.

there might be a few jpgs out of the DLux3, but mostly I shoot raw with it. The jpgs are ok out of the camera, but I set it to minimum NR, high contrast and sharpening for in-camera processing.

Thanks. I've been debating between the Leica Lux 3 and the Panasonic LX-2. From the samples I got from barondla (thanks again) and you photos it looks like the RAW performance of the two cameras is very comparable. The Leica JPEGs direct from the camera are more natural in my opinion, but I don't know if it's worth the extra money to me. So many decisions.

Great capture of the movement of the water. Unique.

Beautiful shot. This is all about the mood.

The water on the left seems to have tenacity in it and it is in deed beauitful. Artistic!

I like this. The highlights at top center stand out while the highlights at far left lead the eye to the water and top center. I may have cropped 1/10 off the left side - it kind of trails off. But that's just my eye. Thanks for posting.
