    +1 Great colour and texture.

    Baxter: Very nice coastal shots. I love the rainbow in particular.

    a beatle .... no a beetle!



    Been working some more with focus stacking

    Dead models are so much easier to work with.

    Not sure if the wife minds these more or less than the nude ones

    If you used tilt as well as focus stacking you would need fewer shots, and would get the background in focus - do you move the camera, lens, digital back or subject for shacking?

    Re: Fun with MF images

    The camera was moved.

    I have a velmex linear stage, typically used in CNC machining. The lead screw is 10 TPI as I recall. On that, I have mounted a Bogen quick release plate.

    Agree 100% about tilt. As some time down the road, I will invest in a TS bellows, but for the moment, I'm limited to moving the camera.

    With my reasonably equipped computer the whole processing sequence is around an hour, about 1/2 of this is spent in read time, so tilt/shift would be nice. In the whole flow, the setup takes around as long as the processing.

    I am thinking of setting up kit to auto-photo-stack ¿CAPcam? for commercial macro for jewelery catalogs etc., with a £10k mac pro to try to keep up with it!

    Stackshots may be a possibility, but if CAPcam will be able do it all, why bother?

    Just finished a very old image. I don't even have the raw file, but I would guess it was a P25 back with 5 frames or a 10D with 12 frames....

    Well here it is

    Interesting. The Velmex stage is interesting. Would you recommend it? Is it very stable? Does it wobble at all? I am using the Manfrotto macro rail...its ok, but I would like something more stable. i explored the Velmex, but without the ability to test, its a pricey solution.

    The Velmex is great.

    Got the refernce from another forum.

    Mine came with a counter, and was under $100 delivered. ( via E-bay )

    The same folks have another one for sale.

    Nice Sergei! Is this with the ULD version of the 50mm? If not, is it decently sharp in the corners? I'm about to pick up a wide angle and am really struggling with the decision for my RZ.

    Really great work. I love the mood and colors. (Only small thin, but could be my display, it looks a tack to sharp.)

    thanks, Christopher.. its downsized from pre-print version (me being lazy to make special version).. and thus it kinda became a bit too sharp, indeed.

    On second one I would think about getting rid of that wisp of her hair in back of her chin.

    Thanks. I did in a newer version of the photo, which is here. I retouched the hair, not expecting there to be flyaways on the opposite side of her face. Lesson learned: Check the whole face

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Mike, if you dont mind - can you please retrouch few more things?

    - Pull in a bit of the skin hanging above dress in low-left (also reduce appearance of the arm, might as well d&b it a bit, to reduce it further)
    - Two ring wrinkles on neck really do bug me - this areas is out of focus anyway, may as well get rid of them, or mask a bit.
    - D&B makeup on eyes. Flash always pushes out true blacks from mascara, and it will make them more striking.

    other than that - its great portrait indeed. Specially for a test.
    (only thing - light hitting her jaw made it more square, by pushing lit edge out - optical effect, but..).

    I'm not yet versed in how to pull skin in yet.
    But...
    I'll work on the wrinkles on the neck, and thanks for the tip about the mascara. I will definitely work on that.

    Thanks for the input.

    Thanks Baxter for your comment!

    I like your "messy tree" Shelby.
    I sold a large RZ system about 6 months ago.
    So it is interesting to follow your work using the same system.
    Hopefully I will not regret my decision took much

    The light really was not there (but the freezing temperatures were). I went out to test a new 300mm lens for fun this afternoon. Damariscotta Lake in Maine. 8 image stitch coming out to about 28,500 pixels wide.

    Pramote,

    Did you consider neutralizing the white of the snow in the image but leaving the richness of the sky? It seems a little too magenta to me personally. Just a thought.

    Some great images here, most especially the Hong Kong shots.

    Winter finally arrived in the NE. A small stream flowing into Lake Erie, Two exposures (-2ev) manually combined (somehow I am rarely happy with Photomatix):

    Beautiful light for sure, and a nice restrained use of Photomatix. However, I think it would benefit from having the horizon straightened - just a thought :-)
