    A slow thread Rdcny , the dp1m is my favourite focal length and the most used of the three Merrill's.

    Re: Sigma DP1 Merrill Shots

    Decided to take out my Sigmas last night to shoot a familar scene and alongside my Sony A7RII outfit. Truthfully, I prefer the DP1M version. Pretty much OOC to tiff file and slight dodge/burn only. No sharpening etc whatsoever (isn't that a shock for us Sigma folks? No ... ).

    Sigma DP1M 5s f/9 ISO 100, Sigma Photo Pro 6.3.0

    This is one of the most pleasing shots I have seen around here for ages.

    Lovely composition and tones that echo the shots taken over a hundred years ago.

    Well done, Andrew.

    Maybe but I don't think I would hard to emulate the tonality with some post processing.

    My approval came because it went brought back my memories of the explanations of composition and tonal balance that used to be the mainstay of the editorial in the photographic magazines of my youth. When I was a lad the Amateur Photographer was predominantly about why some pictures worked and some didn't. Photos were accompanied by line drawings showing what made the composition successful or weak. Camera reviews were relatively rare. I don't doubt such magazines are around these days but I get the impression that encouraging snappers to upgrade from a Mark 1 to a Mark 2 is where the interest/money lies.

    Andrew posts some lovely shots - but I picked this one as the best 'picture' he has offered us for a while.

    Hi Foveon I often give negative fill light in Sigma photo pro to get away from that gritty high contrast you can get from the Merrill files. It can if not careful edge towards that glamour glow look though. Otherwise everything is done via Cs6 without any extra filters than what Adobe supplies.

    Tony thank you. I adore the photographs hung on walls around our fishing village from the late 19th century and through the 20th and these are without doubt filled with their influence. I love not only the aesthetic qualities of those images but also the social documentary.

    Foveon I used a Lee soft grad for the sky which shows but I quite liked the presence of the Trawler rather than anything else. Exif is there on flickr for some reason some sites exclude the exif of linked images where as others do not.

    Re: Sigma DP1 Merrill Shots

    I have never been much of a wide angle shooter, so it's no surprise that of the 30-40 images I took today with my DP Merrills, only 4 were taken with the DP1M.

    As you can see, we haven't had much snow here this winter. When we did get a foot or so, a warm front would move in a week later and melt most of it. Same story as last winter. The skiers are not happy.

    Regarding this photo that Andrew made. Is the slight bleeding of the dark areas into the lighter areas a product of the Sigma camera or something in PhotoShop? I have seen this in some Sigma images when looking a B&W on Flickr and would like to understand this.
    Back in my film days, if one diffused the image under the enlarger, the shadows (the thin areas passing the most light) would bleed like this into the middle and highlights.

    In a moody image I think it is very pretty and am wondering how to get this via Sigma.

    Thanks!

    Looks like negative fill light to me, but it can also be a post processing effect in photoshop. But it's not a "Foveon" issue for sure.

    Hi,
    By"negative fill light" do mean moving the fill light slider in PhotoShop towards the less fill light direction?
    Also BTW, I don't see it as a negative fault or issue, I actually like it in some images.

    in this image a mask is used to bring this effect to the sky, it cannot be the time, on the left you see some people.

    I meant SPP fill light. Yes, moving it to the left. This gives a "dreamy" look. But that's only a guess.

    Hi just to say, I have not seen light fill in LR or Cs for a few generations. I think Fill left LR after version 3. So not on this image.
    This is simply negative fill in SPP raw. I suspect fill light in SPP is an HDR logarithm, something I find very ugly and a downside of the Merrill's.
    Yet this image in triuth is too soft for my liking but was a compromise to have an image or not.

    Yes I did realise this. It is often also hard I find to explain certain procedures when using software, without writing a whole essay and of course it is great that we all
    have differing likes and dislikes. I have certainly learnt a lot from the web but probably most by spending a lot of time experimenting and messing around with images.
    It is also true that we can often look back on images which at the time we though were ok to then dislike them. Happens to myself a lot.
