Hmmm I might have arranged the cables but I would imagine an experienced studio musician looking at a photo with NO cables would go "where are all the cables? is this some sort of wireless studio from the future?"

It would be like retouching out someone's eyebrows. You wouldn't know what was wrong at first, but something would definitely be missing.

Thanks zinco! :D

As Hoff stated correctly, a studio without wires just ain't right! And the client wanted the wires as is, to give it more of an actual working environment...believe me, it was discussed before the shoot. ;)

Cheers!

ah well.. 2 against one... :( cables stay... :) but why though? Is the shots for him or for potential clients to record in his studio? I mean shooting real estate I am to take away all cables and even electrical outlets, just so that it keeps a minimalistic look and well designed. I even make grass green, paint the walls and clean the pools... :)

The shots are for a website that he's having built to promote his studio to potential clients. If it were a real estate gig, then absolutely, de-cluttering is a must but this is not the aim of the photos.

Cheers!

That's a good shot and a sweet looking bike! ;)

About the resizing and sharpness, you generally have to go resharpen almost all shots once they've been resized because the resizing process doesn't think about sharness as much as it thinks about dropping pixels to meet the size requirement you ask of it. That's why it's usually a good idea to go back and touch up the sharpness before you upload an image to the web.

Cheers!

C&C appreciated.

Looks good and if you hadn't told us it was an HDR, I'd of never guess that, so, good job on the processing too!

That said, normally you should be able to get a cloud exposure like that without all the steps involved that you took and once you get the hang of shooting manually or in the aperture priority mode, you'll be able to directly control the exposure by using the built in light meter that shows you on a vertical scale on the right side of your viewfinder's display, the level in stops -3 to +3 in one third increments so that when you adjust your shutter and aperture settings, you'll see how they effect the level of exposure. I usually shoot clouds at -1 to -3 on the meter and try to aim first at the brightest spots in the clouds to get an accurate setting for the highlights, so that they don't get over exposed. Once you've done that, Camera Raw in CS4 will have plenty of room to allow you to make an HDR-like shot by playing with the exposure, recovery and fill sliders.

Cheers!

A week away with the old girl and she still produced the good despite being used in wet and humid conditions all of the time.

ok Scuff, I am putting my camera away and giving up. You have just posted the perfect landscape picture that most of us dream about capturing.

:D

Well maybe not, I just have to keep telling myself that someday I'll be in that spot to capture it all too.

Hi all, my friend wanna sell his underused 1Ds Mark II, shutter count around 20k and he said it is in minty condition. He will let it go around US$2500> Do you guys think that it is a reasonable price?

Other than that, I wanna now, how long can it (1dsmark2's shutter) last? I am using a Nikon D700 now and I am really really envy Canon color :) that is the reason of why I wanna jump ship to the 1DsM2 :)

Thank you in advance for the help...

cheers :)

^^The shutter is rated to last up to 200K shots. As for the price, I think you can get one for a bit cheaper, these days...I've seen some used ones go for about 2000-2350 with the same amount of clicks. ;)

Good luck with the transaction, if you do go ahead with it. Oh, and welcome to the forum. :)
