    Better a full bottle in front of me
    than a full frontal lobotomy.

    G'day Hans

    #4- you mean that there's only 1 roo in such a large paddock?
    #3 + #4 appeal for their landscape qualities !

      Good to see a bird shot Hans. Could be a Nankeen Kestrel.

      nice light in #2, not so sure about the subject.

      the last two are excellent landscapes. Beautiful light on the grass in the last.

        The neighbour is about a km away he likes getting a picture now and then. We get some lovely sunsets. It was the lighting that got my attention.

    • #4
      Really like the first one of the bird and the last two are classic landscapes. Well done.
      Canon 7D Mark II, EF-S 10-22mm, EF-S 18-135mm STM, EF 100-400mm II L, EF 100mm L Macro, EF-S 24mm STM, EF 50mm II, and a random assortment of 35mm film cameras.

        Great to look out at that scene Hans. Well captured. #2 (to me) is a perfect example for a bracketed shot (3 or 5), to have some definition in those distant hills.

        Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

          Matter of concept I suppose since those hills are about 10km away I like the fact that that show that way. Wouldn't look right otherways.

          It was only my own thoughts mate so take it with a grain of salt.

        Decided to go and do the 3 shot bracket but the ones + and- looked pretty ordinairy. I think luminosity masking would do a better job if you wanted to reduce the effect of the haze. Wouldn't help the focus tough a lot of atmospheric distortion.

          How did you blend the 3 exposures?

      • #7
        I didn't, it's the default exposure. But the light is from a different direction.

          The bracketed shots should all be taken at once in the same light. WeTransfer them and I'll have a look

        Another lovely set Hanse, you are living in paradise I think. Love the Kestrel, getting quite rare here...:-)

          Thanks MJ had no idea what it was I would have called it a chicken hawk. It is a popular dead tree for a bird rest though. Mostly parrots and crows.

          That's a ripper Hans. Good drama in those clouds. You could even add some more drama in PS.

          haha already have but I was waiting for you lol

      • #10
        OK then....

        #1 Just added drama to the clouds and lifted the colours in the foreground. I used Dark and Light luminosity masks with Curves adjustments.

        #2 ... On top of that, I added my Sunset action group (40% Opacity), then added a Solid Color fill layer (#ffd800) at 40% Opacity.

          I like #1 but think #2 has gone a bit too far. I will update when I'm no longer interested in working on the 100 yr old postcard.

          Thanks Hans. Just playing. A bit bored not using the camera so Photoshop is keeping me sane.
