    I took this picture at the Olympic National Park. I really like it and just re-edited it.

    I am really looking forward to seeing your pictures. Grand canyon + star trails/milky ways by you! It will be very cool.

    So kind, Pramote! Very flattered... Any advice on locations for such a shot? I tend to find, with big expansive scenes where one looks down into them, that star trails shots can fall flat. The scene below them tends to get lost. Much better to be down in the scene looking up.

    Re: Fun with MF images

    I went with the family last time so I went to visit only the generic spots. However, you will find out it's beautiful everywhere around sunrise and sunset.
    I have no doubt other friends at GetDPI can give you better tips.
    Any one want to chime in to help Ed?

    Does this spot have interest for you? I will have to look up the spot. I am just away right now. I am excited to see your work from a place like the Grand Canyon.

    Re: Fun with MF images

    I was anxious to try frame averaging on the IQ4150. I exposed an image for the lights and would normally expose 1 stop higher until there were no shadows blocked. I exposed the lights for 5 minutes of frame averaging and edited in C1. No layers just brought up the shadows, raised the exposure and dropped the highlights. Then corrected the aspect ration and cropped to suit. Incredible that there is very little noise even in extremely corrected portions of the file. It was 4am and I think there was a passer by or two but youíd never know it.

    Looking at the finished file at full resolution I totally believe I could print and hang it in the gallery.

    Ed, amazing technology and definitely at the deep end of the pool. I'll watch from a safe distance. Thanks for sharing your results.

    Frame averaging in camera as a raw file was actually one of the main reasons I made the jump. Yes it can be done manually in post, but that's just a lot more work/files/data/and finally processing power.

    Lou,

    Africa is intoxicating. I grew up there so I am biased but never get tired of returning. This is my 7th safari and 4th at Sabi Sabi. The good news is that after a while you can let yourself be much more creative and selective in what you shoot. The Fuji was great for mostly quiet moments. I wasn't even bothering with birds in flight or lots of motion though so it was definitely a case of picking the best opportunities to shoot knowing that you could get the most from the system's limitations.

    As regards the pop - I realize that people will think that it's post processing but it really isn't. The Fuji lenses just pop'd wide open. +10 clarity in C1 Pro and then output as 1600px with standard optimization/output profile for screen. That's it, period.

    Two inches in focus is fun to play with but when you get it right it makes for some super results. I'm not sharing the failures (of which there were many)

    I am dumping my entire hasselblad kit, hopefully that should net me enough for 1 gfx100 and 1 lens I am thinking the 32-64 should suffice for now.

    The 32-64 is excellent. Pair it with the 23/4 and maybe 100-200 and youíre done.

    What?!? No 250 and 1.4TC and what about the 45-100? You cannot stop until your pack exceeds the weight of your Phase One pack.

    Excellent choices.
    Those 3 lenses are among my favorites, together with the 1.4x TC.
    With best regards, K-H.

    I was just answering for a friend. Personally, the 250/4 & TC iS also in my Phase One branded F-Stop Satori bag

    I'd like to recommend the Phase One XF equivalent but even as robust as I am, I struggle with the 35LS, 75-100 & 240LS + TC.

    Besides your 250 and 100-200 lenses and 1.4 TC what other Fuji lens(es) did you take and use?

    I took my 45/2.8 as the other lens. TBH I only used the 100-200 & 250 +/- TC depending upon the situations. I thought that I might shoot some environmental shots/camp shots but in the end didn't.

    Great example Ed and thanks for sharing it, Iím pretty convinced that this is how frame averaging should be used.

    Long exposure effects aside, I donít think we were able to get this kind of dynamic range from a single photograph before! And surprisingly, it doesnít look too artificial / HDR, dare I say very close to what the naked eye would perceive....

    Looking forward to more samples from the community here!

    It's absolutely stunning when you look closely at it. For static subjects it looks like a game changer. Ugh

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Graham, the image of the hyenas and vultures is spectacular, especially that it's the kind of Safari image one often doesn't encounter. Both are probably predators/scavingers of the same pray and I (we) are left wondering how the standoff is resolved. The image portrays a powerful moment...a decisive moment.


    Aside from this, your earlier posted images evokes memories (for me) of the taxidermy prepared animals in the museum of Natural history in NYC and the diarama's depicting life on the African plains. I almost for a second was convinced it was photographs of the museum displays as opposed to the real thing. Throughly enjoying your postings and of course your captures.

    Itís only money! Let me print some of your files so you can hang them for sale. Feels better when you write it off.

    Aside from this, your earlier posted images evokes memories of the taxidermy prepared animals in the museum of Natural history in NYC and the diarama's depicting life on the African planes. I almost for a second was convinced it was photographs of the museum displays as opposed to the real thing. Through enjoying your postings and of course your captures.

    No stuffed animals were harmed in these photo shoots

    If you liked the hyena/vulture stand off I can upload a couple of the lion / hyena / vulture standoffs too. The giraffe in the image died in a fight with a rival male and attracted the full gamut of predators & scavengers who all interacted with each other in an opportunist manner.

    I held off posting more of the giraffe corpse shots as they get a bit gory. When I was there in 2017 we had an elephant carcass being fought over and devoured. Think in terms of a pride of lions INSIDE a dead elephant if you want a mental visual. Great images but I really don't know what I would do with them TBH.

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Quite agree! Imagine a real edit and not a 5 minute laptop attempt at 1am.

    It instantly became part of my routine to grab a 2-5 minute frame average along with my usual.

    Looking forward to more samples from the community here!

    Pretty low actually. I just checked the EXIF here in C1 and it's 250mm, 1/320s @ ISO3200 and f/4.5 but raised by 2 stops in post. Hence the ugly bokeh/noise in the background but ok where it's in focus I think. I can probably do something to make the colour better.

    Don't go tryin' to hide your noise behind a great image. We are watching...



    It is very impressive. The noise certainly was not the first thing I noticed.

    Urro de Manzano sunset, in Spain

    Urro de Manzano at sunset, in Cantabria. The amazing Pi-shape of that sea arch makes this one of my favourite locations in Atlantic Spain, and one that I am always happy to go back to. This is a 256 second exposure with my Hasselblad X1D, Hasselblad XCD 30mm and Formatt-Hitech Firecrest Ultra filters.



    Thank you for viewing, best regards

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Morning

    Got back from Iraq for a break a couple of days ago, takes a few days just to calm down a bit and realise you aren't there anymore! I really struggle to see landscapes for a while, need to force myself into looking in a more peaceful way.

    Went out early to the river, Sweden at this time of year is 24hr daylight and at any normal hour, the light is harsh and flat and uninspiring to me, so rather than just take the same stuff I always take when I get home, I tried to look at the little waterfalls in a more abstract way, maybe the darkness of this reflects my mood a little! Anyway, just an experiment, but I like it. I like a square crop and losing the top too but posting this one.

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Christmas in July!

    Monday, I received a special order from Tom Erik Smedal, our fellow Medium Format photographer.

    In the box that was placed next to my front door, was a tube, and inside the tube was a fantastic, beautiful print made by Tom using a Leica S 006 and S120 lens!!!

    It is both an exquisitely made image, and a beautiful, detailed print that will be delivered to a local custom framer this week. The overall image has a "fairy-tale" feel to it, but also, the colors, and the mood fit our modest/tiny home decor. The image was posted here:

    https://www.getdpi.com/forum/medium-...tml#post788580

    If anyone doubts that the S 006 is highly capable and desirable, well, may I present a different viewpoint. I am delighted that Tom worked hard to capture this image, and I am excited to finally get the chance to have it framed and hanging on our wall.

    Thanks, Tom!

    Very much agree, an impressive image and one of my favorites so far from those posted. It contains in my opinion, many elements that make it extremely compelling.

    That's a really interesting shot.

    I need a spare body. Another camera body too

    Seriously though, I normally take 2 and did consider renting a spare one for the trip just in case plus to avoid changing lenses.
