Went out today and took some shots in jpg, but had the WB set wrong, so I played with the color to try to salvage something from the mistake.

Apple tree 17mm Pentax M42:


Fall colors 17mm M42 lens:

Great shots. I could almost reach out and pick an apple..it looks so realistic. Is that 17 mm W/A an old screw mount lens ?

Actually aPentax 17mm F 4.5 screw mount fisheye with three built in filters that I bought many years ago. Works like a charm on my DS and has amazing DOF!

Certainly worth saving - both those pictures are outstanding. Love the apples, though.

Thanks also for the reminder about how wide angles have so much greater DOF than teles do - I keep forgetting that. Another reason for getting something wider than I have.

Well, if you use RAW...:blah:

Some interesting effects, need to put sunglasses on to look at #2. We haven't seen a blue sky often here since June.

Is that apple tree in your own garden? You might give me a lesson on how to take care of them, we have trees but don't get many apples.

Nice shots Tom, you seem to have fixed the colour shift effectively.

those apples really do look pickable
and the saturation in the second is umm saturated!

does your editing program have levels ?
and if so does it have a colour picker that lets you pick white in the photo?
you just click it on a highlight and it should colour correct it
(maybe )

They are called Happy accidents not mistakes....For if they were mistakes then every time I shoot a photo I'd be mistaken!! The way I look at it I'm happily accident prone.

The ultra vivid colors in the second shot work very well Tom. Wish I was seeing that first hand.
