    Great shot! And you're right it is a great location, thankfully not too well known to the average punter yet. Still, there was one other guy there who tells me there were 9 other photographers last time he shot there! Probably best to visit on a weeknight.

    Some from a recent South island trip.
    My first few images in the forum.
    ALPA STC, IQ280, 40HR, Cube, RRS 3 series.

    Many thanks for looking.





    Next, a 100% crop of the above. I was astounded by the clarity here.




    Monochrome conversion. (some feedback would be appreciated. my first attempts in Capture 1 ).

    Just my two bobs worth - in the third image I would have at least looked at masking the background trees and pulling back the exposure / or maybe a colour channel or a bit of both to get the foliage darker - that may not be the look you like but I would like to see the white of the water pop more.

    Glad to see you have your camera out and taking images.

    Too true, Mal.
    will try the dodged version again sometime when I get a chance to process.
    Meanwhile folks, here's another few.

    The first's handheld at ISO 400.



    and then a few with the tripod.





    THanks for looking.

    IQ180|32HR|CF|2-frame flat-stitch, 15mm L/R shift in Landscape|6mm fall|All processing in C1, Stitching in PS CC

    This lens just keeps amazing me. the trees may look underexposed, but there is some funky compression going on. There is a lot of detail and tonality in the TIFF file in full-size view.

    Re: Technical Camera Images

    The attached image is sort of a test image for Lumariver HDR (I'm one of the developers behind it). Despite some clouds the sun was so strong I could not look into it even when squinting, and when focusing on ground glass one must not forget that the sun is harmful to look at, unlike those modern live views

    I typically use a grad filter in these situations but I wanted to have the sun centered with the foreground and needed to work fast, shooting two exposures seemed like the safer bet. Otherwise I would have needed a very strong grad as the sun was brighter than it should be when making these types of shots. Looking back I should have shot three here to cover even more DR, but the back holds up quite well.

    I then merged the images directly from Leaf .MOS raw into a .DNG, and made raw highlight reconstruction so I would get yellow center of the sun, and did some mild tonemapping with a 0.5 stop grad and 0.4 stop "standard compression". The "cooked" .DNG (merged and tonemapped) from Lumariver HDR was then processed in RawTherapee. Getting sane color in these types of light conditions with snow involved is always a challenge (you always seem to need more than one white balance), but I'm quite pleased with the result. I would have liked a circular sun though, I had no possibility to see that it was cloud in front of it when I made the shot.

    Leaf Aptus 75, Linhof Techno, Schneider Digitar 72mm/5.6 shot at f/11 with 2.5 degrees tilt and about 8mm back rise.

    B&W - the colour image seems a little over processed for my liking. Kudos for catching some decent clouds though as I was there the same week and it was blue sky central!

    Not sure about the B&W rendering when shrunk to 10% of the original. I'd be interested in feedback of colour vs B&W.

    Here's the colour version:

    Re: Technical Camera Images

    Graham,
    I like the color version because it highlights the second fern in the background better, but the grass in front is a bit distracting in color.

    What if you cropped the bottom ~15% away? If I scroll my screen up so the bottom disappears, a leading curve appears from bottom left, diagonally right to the second fern, then back around left to the trunks. I don't think cropping works on the B&W because that second fern isn't prominent enough.

    Re: Technical Camera Images

    Thanks Dave - I've been working that foreground to reduce it's prominence by burning it in somewhat. Looking at the crop you suggest, you are right that it does tighten up the composition and improve the leading lines between the ferns. I like it.

    I just have to get over the fact that my carefully composed fern tip on the bottom right needs to get cropped at the edge of the frame. (My OCD has me fighting those kinds of things )

    Oh I understand, believe me! I've been accused in the past of being the mad cropper. There is certainly something very nice about seeing the whole fern and maintaining that great 4:3 ratio.

    Re: Technical Camera Images

    No, no, no. Do not give up pixels without a fight. Can't agree with dchew - sorry. Graham, your original color is very nice. I like the play between the greens and the yellows. It helps lead the eye through to the back of the photo and then back to the main fern. Your yellows have gotten too dark in the black and white version I think. There's a nice side on the right with the diagonal trees, a nice repeating pattern of trees up top and the grasses on the bottom do not bother me. It's another repeating pattern that puts a bottom on the photo. The ratio is pleasing. I think its very well composed. Controlled chaos. Ferns are often hard to photograph because there're so delicate and the slightest breeze will cause blur in the photo. Again, well done. Embrace your OCD.

    Rick

    Hi Graham

    I think it is a great shot.

    I really like the the idea of the B&W - I think it has great potential, due to the detail. I think I would play with the foreground fern and try and work on extracting detail and continue on the dodging and burning. to add some dimensionality. Fern - wood - background under the wood. The wood is nice like Rich says, - in color has separation, I would try and get that in the B&W - not talking big movements here - gentle ones

    Looks like fun.....

    Thanks for the feedback Rick & Philip!

    You are so right about shooting ferns in the forest - I shot that scene for over an hour and a half trying to compose and capture frames between the wind blowing those damn fronds!

    I welcome all feedback. In the B&W image I deliberately kept the yellow ferns back in an attempt to let the green fern bloom on its own. I need to work on that still - I'm not really happy with the b&w image since whilst it looks great on paper and large, it doesn't work smaller and that suggests to me that it's not strong enough as-is.

    Thanks Stephen. The 35mm Digitar is in no way passé..
    It has it's limitations on the higher MP backs (60/80) but is a stellar lens on my Aptus-II 7..

    You need to send this to some of the naysayers who claim the 35mm Digitar is passé.
