another one I did yesterday. AGain it shows how far you can crop in on a 5dsr to still get a useable image . Basically whats left in this crop image woiuldnt have even exist in the 5Dmk2 as Im cropping pixels that are past the Mk2's max resolution of 22MP

BTW this image had a lot of work to save it....I used almost every tool that Lightroom had

Hey ya'll, let's have another portrait edit. I have a bunch from DragonCon, I'll try to pick and choose a few that are worth putting here.

This is my friend Alex dressed as Liz from Bioshock Infinite. We're in Hardy Ivy park in downtown Atlanta, in the late morning. Fortunately, it's nice and overcast.
I used one Speedlight on a stand to brighten her a bit and give some separation from the background. No modifier, as it was a bit windy and I sure wasn't lugging a sandbag around. It turned out that with a bit of processing, the bare Speedlight also gave a pretty nice golden-hour sunlight look.

1. As shot:

IMAGE LINK: https://flic.kr/p/yFK7​dU  (external link) DragonCon_20150906_467​6.jpg (external link) by Nathan Carter (external link), on Flickr

2. Working the panes approximately from top to bottom.
Not too much in the way of global adjustments in the Basic pane -very mild WB correction, lift shadows and blacks a bit, mild saturation tweak, increase global contrast and clarity. Careful with the ol' Clarity slider when shooting women, but I'm going to retouch her skin anyway.

A bit of adjustment in the Split Toning pane, primarily to add some warmth to the skin. I fooled around with the white balance for this, but it wasn't giving quite the effect that I wanted.

3. A bit more Sharpening than I usually apply. My 24-70 lens is a bit softer than my 70-200, but the 24-70 was the only lens I was carrying. (one of these days, I need to spoil myself with the 24-70 II instead of my decade-old original)

4. Now, the heavy lifting with the Spot Healing tool, used in both Spot and Brush mode. This leaves some artifacts in the toning, but these are corrected later with the Adjustment Brush.

5. Now some cleanup and touchup with the ol' Adjustment Brush.
a. Go over all the skin with my modified Skin Soften preset. I scaled this one back from -100 Clarity to -50 Clarity and saved over the original; -100 is too much.
b. Now hit all the dark areas with my Skin Brighten preset.
c. A little bit of enhancement of the eye makeup.
d. Little bit of Iris Enhance. It didn't make much difference.
e. Not shown, went over the whites of the eyes with the Teeth Whitening preset. (this preset works great for whites of eyes, a little brightening while still looking natural)

7. Final. Flickr's scaling down, coupled with maybe-too-much capture and export sharpening, makes it look a little crispy. Maybe it's oversharpened, I dunno.

Bit crispy yes, but I think it works for this pic really good.

Here is another from today. This was a lucky capture as it was only on the tree branch for a split second. Again heavily cropped almost to 100% zoom.

crazy to see 5dsr can crop that much and still see that much detail on the bird. even with the 100-400mm lens.

i have too many good lenses but no good camera. best camera is 1ds mark ii. i think it has some focus problem lol. my 1d which is the only camera that i bought never been opened up focus the best. you made me want to get a 5dsr now. i'll wait for it to be 2000 bucks or that 250mp apsc camera.

Yes...it still amazes me that I can shoot these birds with them almost a speck in the frame and end up with a reasonable shot. As I mentioned in a previous post Ive worked out that if you crop severely like I have been doing on some of these bird shots you can actually end up with an image that on any other std FF camera of around 23MP would be like having a 650-700mm lens attached. Infact when I first got the camera and decided to shoot some bird images I was going to buy a 2x extender for the 100-400 because I just didnt have the length for bird photography. But when I saw what I could crop to to get a reasonable image that has bird filling the frame I realised I didnt need it and that the 50megapixel sensor had infact given me the ability to reach further by way of cropping. And after seeing what lens yopu had in your signature if you had a 400mm prime F2.8 on the 5dsr that would be absolutely unbelievable. It would be like shooting a 650mm prime with a working aperture of f2.8!!! . I envy your lens range ...Im the other way around now...gave a Great body but no long prime lens to get advantage of the sensor sharpness and length etc Everything I have is so slow....even the 100-400. I end up shooting at 5.6 max and would kill to be able to trade off 2 stops to get lower iso's because at 5.6 I have to really up the iso . Thats where the primes like you have would really shine...on a big MP sensor like a 5dsr...

And Im sure your wish will come true on the 5dsr going down in price shortly ....I have a feeling the prices will tumble considerably if /when Canon bring out a 5dMK4 witha bigger sensor around the 30-35MP mark . And a Mk4 isbnt that far away
