    The body building shots seem like a perfect case for B&W. Nicely done.

    Note to self: need to cut the carbs for a few years ...

    Thanks Jack, I'm inclined to agree. Looking back now those types appeal more to me than the bullseye shots.

    Actually, in the case of those two images I'd actually flip them but I didn't see how I could do that in C1.

    Yeah, me too. It might have something to do with shooting a lot of wildlife ourselves, and hoping the subject will stop staring at us and go do something wildlife-like...

    Went for a walk with the banged up, old D300 today and the equally tired zoom lens. They still work. They go "click" when I push the shutter button

    D300 with 80-200 AF-S @ 175mm and f/2.8

    I don't care what gear I have.

    [QUOTE=GrahamWelland;527251]Revisiting some Nikon raws today and quickly ran them through the latest Capture One Pro 7.3. What a difference a few years makes when it comes to raw processors!! I'd previously processed these through Capture NX2 and was very happy with the results although some PP in photoshop was required. This time I spent literally a few minutes using C1 Pro only and I think that the results are now better.

    Think about revisiting some of those old files!

    Re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Here, for contrast, another young Thai woman with another lens, the ancient and somewhat underrated Tamron 24-135mm. This is the girl from real Thailand, the Thailand that tourists don't see; 21 years old, started to work as a nightclub singer when she was 14, 3 kids aged 0-5, no husband, current position: construction worker. Whenever I think life is tough, I go visit her. That puts things in another perspective.

    Jan,
    Iím new to focus stacking, Iíll describe how I do it although it is not necessarily the right way.
    With the camera (D800e) on a tripod and in Live View, I move the red square to the bottom of the image (or you could start at the top) on what you want in focus. Make an exposure than move the red square up a ways to the next object you want in focus, continue moving the focus point and making exposures until you reach the farthest object. For this Sunflower image I made five exposures but it turned out I only needed two of them for the depth of field I wanted.

    Focus Stacking in Photoshop:
    1. Open the images in camera raw or Lightroom (I use LR). Highlight the first image than with the shift key down select the last image, then click open in PS. Each image will open in PS as separate file (not layers).
    2. Go to File>Automate>Photomerge. Uncheck the box ďBlend Images TogetherĒ. Click on ďAdd Open FilesĒ. You should see a list of files that you just opened, click on OK.
    3. When PS is finished doing its black magic you will have a new file titled Untitled_Panorama and it is made up of all the files you opened as separate layers. Now go to the Layers and click on the top layer and while holding down the Shift key click on the bottom layer. All layers should by blue.
    5. Go to Edit>Auto Blend Layers. A small window will come up with two options, Panorama or Stack Images, click on Stack Images. Leave the Seamless Tones and Colors box checked, click OK.
    6. BINGO! The sharpness of all images is blended together!

    This works great but Iíve noticed a couple of problems. First, the lens I used is a little soft in the corners and when the focus changes as you move focus point through the image, the very outer edges change (distortion?). The results are the corners are even worse. The other problem is making too many images can confuse the blending program. For one of the Sunflower shots, after I finished focus stacking five images, there were areas in the final image that were both in an out of focus next to each other. It was an easy fix; I just started eliminating exposures between the nearest and farthest exposures until I got what I wanted. Bellow is a crop at 100% of both the foreground and background.

    Iím happy with the results Iím getting but I need to do more experimenting with different lenses and f stops.

    Let me know if you have any questions,
    Gale

    Mohammad, welcome young man. Remember two things: Rayyan is there to change you when you need it; and when you are old enough to hold a camera, tell Rayyan that you will only settle for the Leicas that he is saving for you.

    I know that it's been a while since I've been on the forums -- but I'm still alive and kicking in the wilderness areas. A while bach I (and my camera) ended up taking a swim in a pond -- for some reason, cameras don't like that! Now I've "upgraded" to a 3200.

    This I call "Pastel Sunrise" -- Thanks to the Loons on the lake (that seem to want to start their noise at about 4:00 am, I was able to catch the sunrise on 13th Lake in the Northern Adirondacks.
