    Re: The All New More and More Fun With Digital M Images

    A little experiment from this morning. All of these are with the M8 and the CV 21/4 @ f8, ISO 320.

    Bottom line: I'm still not a fan of HDR in general, but it's interesting to see the differences.

    1. My shot processed in Lightroom 2:


    2. 5-shot HDR in Photomatix Pro:


    3. Single image HDR:

    hahaha, they're not conspicuous at all, now are they?

    Lloyd -- it is good that you are experimenting...you are a better man than I. I have a grumbly reaction to HDR, stitching and most of these other new technologies...it's funny because I am only in my thirties, but I have very little interest in most of these manipulations. Your images definitely show the possibilities though -- the second image looks quite natural for HDR, and I can certainly see people preferring it to the more contrasty versions.

    Steve - wonderful images with the 75 lux. The balance on #4 with the face and branches is my favorite.

    Lloyd - great shot!! I find an almost film like quality on the way you processed this file - especially #3.

    Re: The All New More and More Fun With Digital M Images

    Thank you Stuart and roanjoh. It's interesting to see the possibilities. I find that I really don't like most HDR images, but it's nice to discover that I can draw out some detail without killing an image.

    Here's one final version. For this opened both my Lightroom version, and the HDR version in Photoshop as Layers, with the former on top. Then using a Layer Mask, I allowed some of the detailed areas (e.g., the tree on the lower right) to show through, albeit at a reduced opacity. Overall, I like the result (not as a great image, but as a successful experiment).

    Nice catch. Photogs maybe, but not inconspicuous enough to be spies.

    Here are some M8 images with a very inexpensive lens, the Jupiter 8, cost about $40, though you may have to go through a few to get a good one. Low contrast, and color correction is not so stable, but occasionally a nice color one pops up!

    Lloyd: Was the Photomatrix one from 5 separate images or did you generate from one with different exposures? Or, is that what the single image HDR was? Also what was the exposure range? That program is fun; but, i bet that i delete 90% of my efforts. I'll keep trying for the 10%. Here's an interesting program called LR/Enfuse - http://www.photographers-toolbox.com...s/lrenfuse.php

    Bart - those 2 images are great and wickedly sharp with a very narrow depth of field. You have mastered that camera set up.

    All wonderful - especially that jumping over water shot!

    Lloyd - I don't like HDR either . . . at least, I don't like it if I can recognise it (see next shot)

    Re: The All New More and More Fun With Digital M Images

    Well, I've spent 2 days struggling with my Aperture 2 library (45,000) to get it into Aperture 3
    It's a work in progress (but now it is progressing).

    The program however is completely fab . . . Brushes

    Normally, for these sort of landscapes, it's a trip to Vivezza to get the sky right in colour, and then another to Silver efex pro to do the conversion.

    These were done just in Aperture using brushes and the Black and white conversion - I'm not there yet . . but it's close!

    all take with the M9 and the WATE in Cornwall


    (and yes, I did have a swim - it was a balmy 4C)
