Looking nice Travis. Some things I would try to do:

Top/first image:
1. If possible clone or crop out the distracting plant leaf sticking into the frame on the right.
2. Lasso the fridge and apply an HSL adj layer and desaturate cyan and blue. Set desaturation level to taste.
3. Lasso the lower panels of the pantry doors and apply HSL adj layer and desaturate cyan, blue, magenta. Set desaturation level to taste.
4. a) Create a new layer. b) set layer mode to color. c.) select a good reprentative brown from the cabinets. d.) paint the brown color on the pantry doors to force the hue to be consistent. e.) set layer opacity to taste.

Bottom/second photo:
Use above techniques to solve color bleeding and color variations in coffered ceiling.

As an alternative or supplement to Gene’s helpful WB fix suggestion, I always give the average-blur WB correction method try, as it can fix a lot as well.

David....HUGE thank you...that step 4...is a life saver and I learned something new...thank you very much...step 2 and 3 were good for those doors, and I am happy about that...but step 4...wow...that is helping me solve some of the big issues I have...

Nice work! For indoor sports, you'd want the f2.8 version either way :-)


Most definitely! My ISO's were really getting up there at f4!

So now, I'm torn between the 16-35 f2.8 or the 70-200 f2.8 as my next big purchase! Decisions. . .decisions. . .

I chose the 256 as well. Which charging pad did you get? I'm still unsure whether to wait for the Apple one or not.. I'm also thinking about adding the Airpods but I think second gen is supposed to come out sooner than later?

Ended up ordering the cheaper $25 Spigen one, I ordered their screen protector and clear case with kickstand, really like their products. I thought I read somewhere that the official charging pad could cost $200? I've been using the original AirPods that my wife bought me for my birthday and like them, not sure i would upgrade to a Version 2, but it'll probably come with the charging case, since you'll have to get a new charging case to use with wireless charging and original AirPods.

Qi/Wireless chargers are pretty generic. I've been using knock-off ones with Samsung phones for a while ....y'know because samsung has had wireless charging for years now

any idea if these wireless chargers work with magnetic phone holders?

Picked up the Sigma 135 Art 1.8 today and I had a bit of anopportuity to test it outthis afternoon. I already had the Zeiss APO Sonnar 135 which is easily one of my sharpest and favourite lens but I was also looking for an autofocus solution in this focal range and the Sigma was an obvious choice. I'm currently using it with the Metabone iV adapter. The lens is very large and quite heavy, a bit larger than the APO and it feels a bit heavier but I can't be sure without checking the specs. The lens itself is very well built, not quite o the Zeiss standard but nevertheless it feels like a quality lens in the hand, I'm pretty happy with the build of this thing. Focus with the Metabones is actually pretty good, not quite native speed but more than adequate for my needs.

IQ is everything that I expected and had read about on various review sites, this thing is as sharp as the APO and I expect will have no problem shooting this wide open. It seems a bit less contrasty than the APO and the colours are a little warmer aswell but the bokeh is really impressive and very pleasing to my eye. There is a very small amount of CA when shot wide open but you really need to look for it to find it. Overall very impressed with this Sigma lens.

here is a shot of my Old Nikno F2 shoot wide open, ISO was pretty high due to thetime of day so the image maybe a little grainier than I would prefer.

Some snaps along the way on this afternoon's walk on the Pine Mountain Trail (Georgia) with the Batis 135mm. It was overcast and late in the day, so these were all hand-held and wide-open (f/2.8):

My first SLR was a Nikon F Photomic T that I bought in Japan in 1966.
