I tip my hat to you, pr126-

Your photos are exquisite, dislaying super accurate exposure, wonderful colour, and delightful sharpness. The photos are just great and a real testament that you have a unique eye for good composition and pictorial quality. You should really do more with your photos. They are truly classic.

Thank you for the compliments. I regard myself as a beginner, really.

As a retired person, I have more time to spend on my hobby. But still long way to go to perfection.

Post some of your works! With 2 good cameras you must have some nice photos on your computer?

Here is afrosty morning!





And I am a keen gardener too. My roof garden last summer:

The lighting for these shot is not ideal. However, my husband is enjoying the football games today. So, I am experimenting with my cameras per usual.

This first photo was taken with the S-9000. Which I rather dislike. The object of this drill we be to compare it to the E-900 photo, which will follow in my second post.

Hello pr126-

OK, this is the same photo approximately, taken with the Fuji E-900 from our back deck. Please notice the difference between these two photos.

Hello again, pr126-

Once again a bit of follow-up information. Like you I am also retired (I was a Boeing 747 Captain for TWA) so I too, have plenty of time to work with my photos. Tomorrow we are planning a trip up the Oregon Coast Line to visit a very scenic Oregon State Park called Shore Acres State Park. It has many gardens and should yield some excellentphotos. I will attach a photo that I used during the holidays.

MT, I have taken the liberty to run this photo through my elements 4.

In Photoshop Elements I first adjust white balance. Then I normally use Shadows / Hilights and adjust the contrast. The contrast brings out the detail and the colour. Not too much, or it will appear unnatural. Then, adjust colour - Hue and saturation.

Hope you like it.

You can see in the corrected photo that the sky is posterizing, banding. That is because to much info lost during the processing. With RAW this would not happen. Anyway, it is all good fun. :-)

Once again the colours are wonderful. Thanks for posting.

Here is one from our recent trip. I have attempted to get a bit more out of Elements 4.0.
