Photo #11 - Sunday 11th December 2011

Image

Model: Canon EOS 550D
ISO: 100
Exposure: 0.8064516 sec
Aperture: 8.0
Focal Length: 30mm

PP - 5 bracketed images run through Photomatrix Essentials and then using the Exposure Fusion (adjusted) preset.

Not exactly an ideal HDR subject but its because I'm experimenting with all sorts of different subjects to get to grips with what works and what doesn't.

I do like the image though for some reason :oops:

Photo #12 - Monday 12th December 2011

Image

I wanted to take some photos of this friends Mustang before he sell it. TBH I'm not happy with any of the pictures hence the collage that at least 'tells a story'.

hmmmmm, not happy at all. Made way to many mistakes, got the sunset time wrong so missed the light, accidentally left the camera -1 stop so everything under exposed too. Pictures are over processed which covers up shonky basic camera work :roll:

Nice car though. Do you think he'd swap it for my Defender?

Model: Canon EOS 550D
ISO: 640
Exposure: 1/50 sec
Aperture: 1.4
Focal Length: 30mm

I had a great morning taking photos of the Spinneys 92km Cycle Challenge. I ride with the organisers on a regular basis and so managed to persuade them to give me a photog pickup to myself. Got some alright shots but many were with my 18 to 135 lens so cant use them here.

I keep taking this shot from the balcony, for some reason I really like it. This is the first time I've used the 30mm lens though and I need to experiment with shooting stars with a fast lens. New moon is coming so might be a good opportunity.

Photo #21 - Wednesday 21st December 2011

Image

Model: Canon EOS 550D
5 image tone mapped HDR
ISO: 100
Exposure: 1/800 sec
Aperture: 8.0
Focal Length: 30mm

Still messing around with HDR to get to grips with where its great and where its not. Playing with it like a kid with a new toy but that can be a bit boring for everyone else :oops:

So then, 2 thirds of the way through and I'm a bit gutted I've missed a couple of days :roll:

Need to get back on track and make sure I dont miss any more. Feel like I need to make a conscious effort every day now to get a decent image

Warth Man - Not sure he'll swap but it is for sale. Its a great car, I love it and lust after it badly :oops:

Jiko & HikingMike - Everyone is loving number 13, its probably my most likes photo ever on Facebook too. Guess this is where HDR really can make a huge different to photography
