Well the first one is nice but a little riske' :-)



I really like the second. How much processing work did you undertake on the second one? I am impressed with that lens if you say "none".

Simply can't understand why you would want to go back to sun, scenery and leisure when you have all this dull overcast chilly windy rain and a nice job whereto spend your days.:?

Beautiful shots!

I know the first one ... but it's one of the best shots this summer, so if someone has problems with it I'll remove it.

For the second, there was some post processing but not much just a bit of extra exposure and 5% saturation, 10% vibrance, only I did some blurring before downsizing it because there was to much noise for my liking.

Hi Ronny,

Both great shots IMO! I have to say that I favor #1.

. . . but I also don't like being reminded that it's almost over. . .:sad:

On the smoothing before downsizing -- I usually don't because much of the noise is eliminated with the downsize operation, and what smoothing might be needed is a quicker, generally easier operation using the small file -- much less computer processing power needed.

OT -- BTW, I found that these downsized "for the forum" files printed with Qimage, at least, are so close to as good as the full sized files for up to 5x7 inkjet prints that I now use them exclusively for my "proofs". I tried printing the 0.5MP downsized file along side the original edited file, and it took me a couple of minutes with a 10x loupe to find only a few sections where there were differences. Of course, the full sized files are needed for anything larger.

Fab shots.



can't pick between them - both appeal for different reasons.



Moving into Autumn now, but still warm.
