    Thanks for the info Steven. Great to know specific details about locations and views!
    You come from a beautiful and photo-rich state. We had a fantastic time.

    Re: Technical Camera Images

    Tough scene to capture! Looks like a gorgeous venue though.
    Do you use a polarizing filter? Might have taken some of the sheen off the yellow leaves.

    Don't know if you bracketed at all, but if you did perhaps blending the frames with good shadows and good highlights might tame this image.

    Best,
    Bob

    Re: Technical Camera Images

    Bob, thanks for the excellent suggestions. I did not use a polarizing filter, and only shot a verticle and this one. I was not prepared for this scene, had several people waiting for me to get out of the way... and just did the best I could with what I had on my camera. Maybe I can be better prepared next time!

    Re: Technical Camera Images

    Might I suggest you use the Color Editor (Advanced) in C1, click on the very light yellow and then darken it?

    It's a fine image as it is but it just might get a bit finer.....just saying'!

    Re: Technical Camera Images

    I've been working over this file, thought i might present the current version and my process, certainly open to suggestions.

    merged from two rotation panos, cambo 43sk, H39, processed in phocus. general exposure was bumped about 1.2 stops, a bit of highlight and shadow recovery
    had to fiddle around with color balance and exposure to get the frames close. did this by picking a common area and matching rgb levels with the exposure adjustment, and also for setting wb. didn;t like the magenta cast in the right, so used lenscorrection (scene calibration in Phocus) with a 43mm lens/diffuser shot, previuosly saved. still too magenta, so I used the color picker for a right ceiling area, then de-saturated and hue shifted a bit to the green. finally added a bit of sharpening in PS (amount about 40).

    tried photomerging (PS) but auto expanded the RH image vertically (keeping the ceiling pipes straight) requiring too much crop; cylindrical kept the pipe straight. but barrelled out the perimeters, as did auto geometric correction. finally settled with APG.

    made a very nice 19 x 30 print, with a bit of noise in the shadows and more halo-ing around the far windows than i would like. had tried various levels of clarity, highlight recovery and un-sharp mask; the halos are in the image due to the backlight and all that blown dust, but not that much

    Jim, to my eyes I prefer your second example. It seems more natural, especially with regard to clarity settings.

    Re: Technical Camera Images

    jlm,

    The first example shows up with weird halos around the windows. I often have brush boundary artifacts show up on a different system that were invisible when processed. The second is smooth.

    Beautiful picture!

    Re: Technical Camera Images

    thanks for the comments, 2nd is my perference as well. those were shot with the blad, so phocus. capture 1 has the local adjustment tool where i might have treated the rh highlight area with a bit more recovery (as in the first image) compared to the back windows where it would halo

    Re: Technical Camera Images

    Bill thanks again. This was a wonderful trip to Arizona. There was a storm in Monument Valley which I understand is rare for October. The storm then followed us to Canyon de Chelly where it snowed and rained. The snow melted quickly, but the next morning it was 22 degrees in the Canyon. Charles

    Image made in Canyon de Chelly in late October 2011. Some of the locals call the scene Martini Rock because it has a "big overhang". Charles

    Bob, thank you for your comment. Despite your kind comment I know I have not made perfect images, but I am having a lot of fun and sense my images are improving despite a few memory lapses relating to technique from time to time! Charles

    Charles: Wow! This is as good a shot as I've ever seen of the Mittens. (But maybe need a bit of extra work on the dodge and burn masks -- we can cover that on the next workshop for you .)

    Re: Technical Camera Images

    Thanks Jack. You are absolutely correct about the extra work needed on the dodge and burn masks. I became aware of that after posting the image and even thought about deleting the image and posting a better one...but will save that for later since I still have many images from the trip I want to spend time on right now; interestingly, my house guests over Thanksgiving who didn't know much about photography thought my mistake was a magical part of the image...and I did not tell them otherwise!

    Hot rodded Cambo no less! I like the tilt/swing extensions. I'm sure that someone at Alpa will cringe seeing their HPF rings machined away too

    Now the real question is whether Guy has placed his order for the T/S knob extensions yet?

    Re: Technical Camera Images

    i was also able to rotate the lens unit in the mounting plate about 90 degrees clockwise; now the more visible shutter speeds are on the beveled face, a bit more readable, and the primary aperture marks and lever and the cocking lever are also in the 10 o'clock region! all nicely placed on the left side. puts the shutter release cable aimed up and the sync connection up near the top
    the distance index is still at 12 o'clock, no change there

    for some reason the rodenstock lens could be simply grasped and rotated, but my schneiders don't want to move

    Re: Technical Camera Images

    i used the alpa HPR rings for the specific focal length and lens brand. From what I can tell, they fit independent of the Alpa or Cambo style of mount. However, it is a pretty big deal to get it to work with the T/S cambo lens, not for the faint at heart. i also modified my schneider 43 in the same fashion, maybe i'll post a pic of that later

    Re: Technical Camera Images

    That's the one thing that kinda bugs me about the Rodi's. At f/11 the lever is right over the focus point, and f/11 is arguably one of the most-used f-stops. Bit of a pain when focus stacking because with no detents in the f-stops I can't swing the lever out of the way for fear of changing the exposure.

    I couldn't get all the way there with shifts so I tilted a bit. Corrected in C! but based on advice from people who do more architectural than I do I under corrected slightly (that's why there is a percentage slider in the perspective correction pane). The third image suffers from the same "defect".
