    Need a Favor with 24-70

    Well yes you got 1200 dollars that would help a lot. Lol

    Seriously though I would like to get some raws as I want to try some distortion control setting. Like to get a 24,50 and 70 mm images preferably something with lines or some type of architecture in them. I'm concerned at 70 the pin cushion effect and how that may translate on a human being as well. Just need one of each. You can use yousendit.com to upload for free under 100 mb.

    Thanks in advance. Just FYI i do not use ACR or Lightroom but c1 to process and they have profiles for some lenses but I might want to try and build one

    Re: Need a Favor with 24-70

    I have two really bad examples from last week.. These are probably the worst you can get.

    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...os/DSC0124.ARW
    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...os/DSC0128.ARW

    There are plenty of other problems in these as well, including being badly exposed.. but the distortion is something else! I was using the level in the camera so they should be horizontally ok, but vertically not as I didn't want to get too much foreground. At the same time I wanted to catch the whole church in the 2nd pic and the width in the first pic. For the church shooting vertical could have helped, but then it would have killed the feeling of open space..

    Anyway, try and hack these into something useful!

    Juha, Thanks for sharing your files. I love seeing what can be done with less-than-ideal shots. Especially since the A7 files are so malleable.

    Here's the result of about a minute of playing in LR (and the unprocessed shot below).





    PS
    I do wish the moon was just slightly lower in the shot. I thought of moving it, but that would be cheating.

    I continue to be amazed what can be pulled out of these files, as long as the highlights aren't blown.

    And I have a loooooong way to go to learn that level of skills in post processing

    Excellent fix for the file. Next time I'll just post my whole library and be done with it!
