Tullio,

I can see why that shot is your favorite. Pulls you right onto the shoreline.

BradJackson,

Here is my attempt to adjust your image ( used the smaller version):

Photoshop Elements 4, Levels, Shadow/Highlight, Color Cast, Color/Hue adjustment, andfocus Magic at setting 1:

Thanks Nick, your results certainly improve the photo.

The adjustments you mentioned, were they allset tothe automatic levels, or do you tweak each one until the result looks acceptible?

Hi Brad,

Each adjustment is manual . After the Hoiday I will try to post a series of images showing the process if you are interested.

Glad you liked my version. It is not easy working on a scene when you have not seen witnessed the actual scene.

Nicholas

Thanks for your comments, Nick.

Good job adjusting the WB. I have PSE4 but use it very little for I find it a bit unintuitive.


Here are two other favorites of mine. The first taken last yearat Sea World in San Diego and the second...

Taken at a local park with tele-converter TCON-14B (one of the best converters IMO).But, it's bulky and very heavy considering it's only 1.45x. The nice thing about it is that it allow you to take macro shots as well!

I think your pictures are all excellent! I own a MAvica 90 91 and 97 plus a compact nikon 5200...

I prefer the Sony models out of the lot.Just somthing about them!! I like the battery compartments on them!! They last!! The nikon cams are good but the battery lids snap to easy!!

I`ll certainly be buying the sony models of the future.....

One thing about them is zoom!! I also use a convrtoe lens of 2x and 5x,but need to use the stands!!

Rock on Sony for makingDigital cameras that stand the test of time!!

And 9 years ago I purchased a Mavica FD-90 14X optical and it still works!! Maybe taken 30K piccys?? who knows !!! HaaHaaa

I`m thinking f Sony H-10 or Nikon d50 or might wait a while longer into 2008 to see what Sony are up too...

Sony care about their customers!!!!

Thank you all very much for your comments. You know, besides the H1 I have a Pana FZ20 and a Pentax K100D. They are both good cameras but every time I go somewhere I know there may be a photo opportunity, I take the H1 along with me because I know it won't let me down.

Here's another fav of mine...takenfrom a boat while cruising the SF Bay.

Another fav, taken (handheld)with the Sony 1.7x tele converter. Although the H1 lens does not carry the Carl Zeiss name,it is an awesome piece of glass!!!
