    Re: Fun with MF images

    Ed, the Fairlane makes your sign image even better than mine. I have been intending to do a project of old signs for a couple years now. The idea came from a location a couple hours away my home which has several old signs that I am afraid won't last much longer. I hope to get back there soon.

    Re: Fun with MF images

    A few more watch pictures...more technical than for artistic...these were my tests to decide on a MF system...Haselblad or Phase One.

    These were shot in the dealer's studio...Phase One 645DF with P40+ and LS 1.8/80 with a No 3 extension ring. Lighting is one large Hensel Contra on a softbox overhead.



    100% crop



    Again, just test and shoot. No adjustment of time, or full cleaning of the subject...just a simple wipe with a micro fibre cloth.



    100% crop, no sharpening

    Oh a P40+ . Kind of like that back actually. LOL

    Really like the watch to be honest.

    These are really impressive. This is the best example of the new leaf shutter lens and DF I have seen. My DF is on back order and this makes me very anxious to get it.

    Re: Fun with MF images

    P. Chong: Just a minor correction. The Schneider 80mm LS is an f/2.8 lens, not f/1.8.

    I'd also suggest playing around with turning (standard) Luminance Noise Reduction to zero but tweaking the new-to-C1-5.1 Advanced Noise reduction for "surface" just a bit which is meant to enhance the smoothness of areas of continuous non-textured tone as appears in some of the metalwork in the subject there.

    I also prefer "pre-sharpening 1" to having no sharpening at all - you'll maintain a largely-natural look without the introduction of artifacts for most subject matter, but you will draw out a bit more of the detail.

    Re: Fun with MF images

    I normally use presharpen 1 for my P40+ files and on some subjects about 15 points of clarity on the plus side that is.

    Doug. I don't see this new-to-C1-5.1 Advanced Noise reduction for "surface"

    Never mind i found it . You had to add that in

    Ed and Joe some nice shots here folks. I'm chomping like crazy to get going Friday for the workshop. I'm going to scout for two days before most folks come in and looking forward to getting out of the house and get some fresh air.

    Awesome Guy! I love the detail in the shadows and the color is perfect.

    Graham, another great portrait. Did you do special lighting on the smoke?

    It was too hard to work with smoke (we tried), so it was added in post.

    Looks slightly back-focused Woody. Ears, neck and shirt look sharp. Was that to soften his face?

    Good catch. It is slightly back focused - he moved - but it was his best expression so we went with it

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Ed, the central Florida photo makes you feel like your are there. Do you know what causes the magenta cast in some areas of the sky (e.g, odd light refraction off the clouds)? I recall some of my photos from Hawaii had a similar effect, but I don't recall seeing slight magenta areas when taking the photos.

    Just a fun shot from today. Basic processing, but added a little vignette to enhance the natural vignette created by the vines. Also, falling snow caused some small white spots.

    Graham, the cigar smoke looks very natural and doesn't look like it was added in post. Very good execution in the entire photo.

    The Salton Sea and Anza Borrego photos are looking great Guy and Woody - beautiful colors and landscapes.

    Too bad your finished with the Feb portrait series Jim. I really enjoy looking into each portrait and wonder about the personalities of the subjects.

    Thanks David most likely wait to get back to my 30 inch monitor. Hard doing these on a 15in laptop. Not sure I am on target exactly. But we all did really well yesterday up in Joshua Tree and today is set aside for processing and review. More to come

    Thank you Mark, that realism is my goal and I am continually learning.

    On the bit of magenta; this was taken immediately at sunrise, I could see quite a bit red in the sky slightly a few moments before sunrise. I took LCC exposures but since the magenta color is in the middle of the lens I doubt that it was lens color cast.
