Default Good, Old, Wooden Ones...

Saturday was the annual "get-together" for old wooden boats here in Fredrikstad, and I just had to pay this great show a visit, snapping some 500 shots with my D300s + Nikkor 16-85mm ED VR.

This was done with Martin's software:


Being an old hand myself at both sailing and traditional workboats, I was having a great time!

Calm water, lovely sky and the skill and eye of Walter S. The result is, once again, impressive.

I really like the result but the final resize has created a lot of jaggies on the ropes. I've started doing a two-step resize - mixing bicubic and bilinear methods to find a nice balance between overall sharpness and smooth diagonals.

Thank you all for kind words and positive comments.

- Appreciate your "verdict" Walter C! ;o)

- Martin: Interesting observation about the "jaggies" (diagonals), which have always been a problem for me, since I photograph al lot og marine envirements, boats, etc. with rigging that usually goes diagonal. I never know how to get rid of them, when resizing pictures.

Still don't know, since your good advice is a bit too technical for me to understand or to use it to my advantage in any way. The phrases "bicubic and bilinear methods don't mean a thing for me - I suppose that goes to show my ignorance in technical matters...



- Thank you, saketb, for your comment.


Best regards,
Walter

Gorgeous Walter and not too overdone with the HDR. Looks like a beautiful place to hang out.
