I have not seen a gallery like this at our forum in over a year.
Yes, I started a thread like this with almost the same exact title:

I recall you jumped on me for some reason in the 4th post. Maybe you were having a bad day?

Yes, you gave me the inspiration for this thread too--I hope this is not interpreted as plagiarism of any sort. I spent years in higher education and realize the severity of such an offense. Have you seen my much more recent post (#23) in this thread of yours?

Those kinds of lighting conditions can produce strange effects. I'm not convinced it is PF. Mike, have you tried shooting in those kinds of lights?

Hmmm...I'm pretty sure you didn't quote a smilie or two from my post, there.

As far as shooting concerts with bizarre lighting, yes indeedy. Rush in the seventies with a Vivitar 742 XL 110-format rangefinder (don't laugh; they turned out surprising well...f/1.9 lens, 5-1/800s electronic shutter) was an early one, and dozens since then. Yes, plenty of purple and green hair in my shots, too.

I knew (or assumed, anyhow) he was kidding.

Yes, the light really was purple. Different shades of red from different sides of the musicians, actually. I "corrected" the color cast for the main light, and while I could have also shifted the purples toward red/orange, or reduced their intensity, I found that doing so increased the perception of noise, so I left it alone. Plus it looks more like the actual scene felt this way.

FWIW, though, there are situations where the M135/3.5 will take situations like this and just go *crazy*, extending that purple light as a fringe around all highlights. I don't actually notice much PF in general with this lens, but combine very high contrast with purple light and it's amazingly bad. This, however, was not one of those situations.

Iso 6400, K20D


I really like the "texture" on all of the ISO 6400 shots I have seen on this thread, melander's image seems to stick with me for some reason.

Great image melander!

Here are some taken at ISO 800 in Paris for the fireworks last 14th of July . They were shot with a K200D and Tamron 28-300 lens. A few were shot with Sigma 10-20.










Sorry about people's heads at the bottom of the shots... I'm a shorty. And with the crowd, tripod use wasn't an option. My father's tripod got smashed

Unfortunately ovi.com won't serve the high-res versions anymore even though I uploaded the full 10 mpix versions last year
