Hi Jacob,

Interesting color palette in your photos. I almost thought you had the pop art filter enabled. The sky looks rather ominous in a couple of the images.

I too, like # 1, 3, and 4.


On another topic, at one time you posted your frustration in being able to good results shooting concerts in which your daughter was playing. I'm curious if you've come up with any resolution. If I'm not mistaken, you were using the 35-100mm lens.

nice pics jacob, i don't post much (usually to busy) but try to read the form everyday, anyhow in regards to your freezing trip downtown last night, i went for a hike into a mountain valley here in pa. yesterday @ 6 degrees with 10mph winds here was 1 result about 1.5 miles in. (e3,50-200swd), would have much preferred your 36 degrees with this view however.

That's exactly what I thought too. I have the ghosting in both shots with the moon. If I have removed the UV filter, the ghosting could have been avoided.

Hi Zig,

Thanks. You really have amazing memory to even remember my issues months ago. The problem has been addressed by turning up the ISO. I have learned some techniques to reduce noise and also increase resolution on the internet. It actually worked out quite well.

Here is a shot I took last week at my daughter's concert. 200mm with ISO2500, F3.5 and 1/80sec. I'm happy with the outcome now.

Hi Jacob,

I'm glad to hear that you've been able to solve the issue.

Thanx for posting a sample pic. The noise seems pretty well controlled considering you're shooting at ISO2500.

I have to admit that I downloaded your image to see if I could do anything with the little noise that is present. NeatImage cleaned it up a tiny bit more. But, I wouldn't repost, without your permission.

The important thing is that you're satisfied with your results.

And do post more. The cityscapes are impressive.

Zig

Nice lighting! I am also impressed with the verticals...did you do any perspective correction?

They were pretty good to begin with, but I used LR2 crop angle function to make them even perfect.
