    This photo was processed up to a point (Lightroom 2, Nik Define 2.0, and Nik Sharpener 3.0) and then copied and the final processing was done in two different ways. The first was pp'd in Nik Color Efex Pro and the second in Lightzone (pushed towards "HDR"). Any thoughts on which one's better? Thanks for looking and commenting. Cheers, Matt.

    Matt- personal taste i like the soft, more atmospheric rendering of the first one significantly better. Shades of green look more natural here (esp. foreground), so is the fog's texture and cast.

    That said, the second version with its extra sharpened zones have some merits. Printing output for display then viewing from a greater distance comes into mind.

    I would still distribute the sharpened zones less in the front, for the more progressive approach in the first image posted will allow the beholder to dive into the main subject (fog with emerging trees) in a smoother way.

    And in all instances, for this very reason i would try and "heal" (more probably using multi clones) the leafless section in the lower right, possibly blocking the way you want the image to be "read".

    In one word, beside the last relatively incidental point, i'd use the first version.
    Though depending of the intended use (typically large print or distant display) some of the extra sharpening present in the second version might be incorporated -but only selectively on some tress and not on the foreground, and leaving the fog alone in this regard, too.

    I also prefer the first. The clouds look more natural (and more white) to my eye. Also, the green in the left-hand foreground appears more natural to me.

    Everybody: Thanks for the thoughtful comments. I agree that the first one is better. I have trouble with processing this kind of photo and maintaining the sense of clouds/fog and depth. Too much color and contrast and it's gone. There were some cloud/fog shots in the Leica M forum a week, or so, ago that were stellar. Corlan: good comment about the leafless section.

    Thanks again. Cheers, Matt

    Here's two more. I took the first photo into Nik Viveza 2 and desaturated the tree trunks to remove the purple. They still look tinted on my MacBook Pro and they didn't on the MacPro! Screen calibration? Cheers, Matt.

    Very nice, Matt, and very interesting. I first looked at this on my MacBook Pro, and my first thought was that the tree trunks were a little purple. Then I read what you wrote, so I looked at it on my wife's iMac, and there is no tinting at all. Doubly weird as my MacBook Pro is regularly (including recently) calibrated, and iMac has never been.

    Lloyd: My MacPro was calibrated a while ago and there's no purple. Maybe, i'll try calibrating them both again. I use a X-Rite ColorMunki. Interesting to see what it does. Thanks for the comment. Cheers, Matt.

    They look a bit purple on my monitor but it's a beautiful shot nonetheless.

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Thanks Alex, Matt, Lloyd


    Matt-
    Regarding the purple question, here's my take. Except for end-to-end controlled graphic chain calibration -say, from one monitor to one printer- and light, there's no absolute viewing parameters. Despite the industry efforts (and marketing ) in calibration tools and profiles, the diversity of equipment, supports and conditions have us living in a world of compromises color wise. Nothing new in this statement, but we have a fair example here following your and Lloyd's findings above.

    This is why, when one really needs an absolute reading of values the only solid reference is the color picker. Though it's not a current requirement in general photography, for this purpose we developped some time ago a small piece of code allowing to graphically extract and display dominant hues in a chosen zone (using a few clicks of the color picker on the desired area, set @ 3x3 average).

    Took the liberty give it a run on your photo, specifically on the two main tree trunks. Here's the result (sRGB jpeg):



    I'll let you draw your own conclusions.
    There's a number of things you can do with the file, view on your different monitors, compare the web display(s) to CS4's, make comparisons with your reference file etc.


    On a sidenote i feel it's not uncommon to see trunks with this kind of cast under such light conditions. Especially with a green contrast, then to get back to monitors the perception is quite dependant on the relative colorimetric values of each display, even after careful calibration.

    Sorry for the long answer

    And by the way, i personnaly very much like the photo as it is.

    Notwithstanding, once again whether you feel it were a lens issue, i'd be glad to take care of the useless piece of junk for you

    Matt, like the tree lines bringing you into a center point. Nice reflection also. A hint of purple on my Mac screen, but hardly noticeable.

    Hey, thanks Steve, you're way too kind.
    These last months we had to deal with terrible light conditions here, so i guess i' had try and learn to look at the lanscapes possibilities in a different way. I have more to come, C&C will be welcome...

    Btw, don't you find that your own 200mm also have this dreadful purple cast?

    (ok i know, it's just the 100th time i'm making this stupid joke) but i really want one

    Corlan, i wish you told me earlier that you were kidding....I just bought an Expensive Spectrum Analyzer to check on the Purple Fringing & found a Significant Problem, but in the lower wavelengths of the orange spectrum! The lens has been shipped back to Nikon for repairs...

    Hey Matt... I've got a tinge of purple on my Macbook, but frankly, this screen sucks. Regardless, awesome shot.

    Corlan... classic shot. Just beautiful.

    Nothing serious here. The girls were expecting a chicken snack...

    David/Steve/Jason: Thanks.

    Corlan: Thanks for the information. Great long answer. The color chart's pretty revealing. This coloring showed up before with my Eagle shots. That was a 300mm f/2.8 w/TC-E14. It's interesting that this is the only color variation from monitor to monitor that i've noticed (probably because purple is "unnatural"; unless you're in the Southwest). Sorry, That piece of junk, 200mm f/2, was transformed into part of my M9.

    Jason: Nice dog shot. They're really elegant.

    Cheers, Matt

    Jorgen: Nice. Very nice. If I read it correctly; you were using a Nikon Coolpix S5? Fancy running into musicians at a concert. the guitarist on the bottom looks familiar. Have you photographed him before? Cheers, Matt

    Matt,
    Fuji S5. I would have problems mounting the 105mm on a Coolpix

    Yes, I've photographed him before, and probably posted a few photos here. His name is Ad Carabao, leader and one of the original members of the legendary Thai rock band Carabao. The other lead singer, Lek, is the guy with the moustache, posted on the previous page.

    Jorgen, nice set. Like the last one a lot.
    Might have a slight preference for the previous colorful one with the same guys (?)... but it may very well be related to the respective available light.


    Jason, your girls are way braver than our ol' boy when expecting a snack They're very cute as always.


    Matt- you're welcome.
    Oh yes, these lovely M kits call for serious green. Too bad you had to part with this stupendous glass. But i guess you're ok tele wise with the 500mm
    The dog in the window looks great (though i kinda find chocolates' windows more enticing myself ). Nice catch!

    The stage lighting was terrible. To little, and what was there was in some weird shades of green and orange. To make things worse, I moved around among the audience who were all dancing around their tables when they didn't offer me drinks of various quality. A very bumpy ride.

    Good concert though. The next one will be at the largest indoor arena in Thailand, with tens of thousands of people. The lighting will obviously be much better, but I don't know what kind of access I have. A D3s would be nice too

    Matt and Jason, nice dogs all.

    Jorgen, terrific concert photos, as usual. Those guys have a lot of character.

    Ha! Love the doggie in the window!!

    Today, I picked up a Nikkor 35 2.0 AF-D. I'm trying to make my D700 more "streetable".

    I went straight to Montrose Harbor...



    I need to get out here before dawn, but for now, here's the harsh mid-day sun version

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Love these shots, Jason.

    Just when i'm undecided between the 28/2.8 and the 35/2.
    Guess i'll have to get both -thankfully they're affordable enough.

    (i'll start with the 28 though, for some reason i've always had an inlcination towards this "lowly" (@Clay Steward) underestimated lens)

    Corlan... A guy was selling both. I almost bought both. I stuck with the 35 for now.

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Thanks so much! Just looked up when walking the wonder whippets and saw this... I ran to the roof and fired away. Again with the new to me 35 F2 AFD.



    Urban Sunset



    Accidently shot wide open. I was in a hurry and didn't check! I think it's a keeper!

    Yes, I've photographed him before, and probably posted a few photos here. His name is Ad Carabao, leader and one of the original members of the legendary Thai rock band Carabao. The other lead singer, Lek, is the guy with the moustache, posted on the previous page.
    Jorgen: That makes more sense. I was trying to picture you holding a coolpix up to get the shot. I googled "S5 105mm" and got this: "The Nikon Coolpix S5 zooms over the equivalent of a 35-105mm range". Cheers, Matt

    Jason: Great shots.

    Jorgen: the light and shadow in "Dark music" is wonderful. See, you don't need those fancy cameras when you can do that with a coolpix!

    Cheers, Matt
