Man, everyday I read this thread and your images are always amazing! Love them, all of them!


Can you explain your workflow a little bit? maybe you already did, but I'm sure I'm not the only one who wants to know!


Thanks!! and please keep posting that gorgeous images.

Sunset yesterday evening, shot with Sigma 10-20 @12mm FF mode.

There's a guitar company that will copy these colors to thier guitars. Very nice.

Took the K-1 to the Cemetery last night for it's baptism under the night sky...(new baby and all)... FA 31



Amazingly, the K-1 lens light was quite useful for seeing the lens aperture on my K lenses. (I had to work fast as I was in a country cemetery by myself.... with only so much courage ....15 minutes worth as it turned out.... a good ceremony is a quick ceremony anyhow...)
Great night sky shot! Did you use the astrotracer feature for this? 60 seconds and no trails is awesome

David.
I am humbled David.

I typically open a day's work in Adobe Bridge. Eyeball some interesting combos, then open either singles or brackets together (as the case may be) in ACR.

First goto lens profile and pull in the Tamron 15-30 (since there is no DFA 15-30 profile yet) , apply color fringe reduction and correct perspective in the ,Manual tab.

I (95%) typically do a variation of the following

Reduce highlights to -85, whites +20 to compensate. Lift shadows, then goto next Tab and play this game again, making sure there is needed exposure in shadows, and that the highlights are not blown or over-powering.

Then I will make it monochrome and eyeball the composition and crop

Then put back colors and decide what mood to give the shot, here I will play with WB and Tint

After that I make sharpness +35 and NR +25

I will sometimes make De-haze +25 to 40 depending if the shot has flat lighting. During this, Blues might get overdone and blacks too... I re-adjust WB and also reduce clarity to adjust that effect.

I will then eyeball the shot and see if it needs local adjustments, this will will do with Radial filter or Gradient filter

At this point I open it in Photoshop

Here unless I need to merge brackets, I do very little, except to sharpen micro contrast (less than 1 pixel pitch)

Then save a full res version, and then a smaller version for sharing.

This covers 95% of what I will do. There are variations ofcourse.

I used to use LR when I took many many shots in a day, but found it a bit cumbersome and slow. The Bridge/PS combo is faster and more selective as I get more selective in shooting...

Hope this helps.

FA 31 limited and K-1.



(this is a pixel shifted image -- not sure why it looks soft too me on the forum, but the original looks decent on Flickr).

Really nice shot. Love the light on the trees and the overall mood. I noticed on the full sized version on Flicker that some of the clouds and the contrail near the trees on the left side have some kind of artifacts or funky dots. I've seen this in at least one other pixel shifted shot. Do you see it? I was curious what might have caused it.

I really don't see it. Biggest thing is probably the upload to Flickr which compresses things and makes them look not as good as the original. If it isn't a still day, you will often see artifacts where wind moves things around, even with motion correction, but this was a pretty still morning.

Doha, Qatar. This is the downtown area called West Bay.


The colors, and the shapes of the buildings look like a fantasyland.
