Lets see some of your photography

Nothin' to do with blues? The name says it all. You might try e-mail or Personal Message, but if those don't work for you, put it here, not in the blues forums above. Thanks!

haha. I looked at the "Tele and Tab" one again. The lighting and DOF is perfect in that shot.

It's a HDR (high dynamic range) picture. Except for the frogs photograph, they are all HDR.

I took 3 shots. one shot as the posemeter reading, one at 2 stops underexposing and the other 2 stops overexposing. Then I used the Photomatix software.

I really like to take HDR pictures (just beginning tho). Here's others examples:

HDR pictures are great.

I'll admit, I'm a bit of a computer nerd, and I love computer games. Some of the new games coming out support HDR and they're cool to look at.

I really want a new digital camera but I don't have the money for one. Maybe if I stoped buying so much guitar crap I could have one. But then I'd have less guitar stuff. :(

I'm still learning how to do HDR pictures mys elf. and I love the tele & tab photo.

Seapia would have been a great effect though imho. In my Humble Opinion.

By the way Lefty means Depth Of Field "DOF"

Neat picture Derek - what's the original look like?
The lack of blurriness on the grass to the right of the car gives away that it's a PP effect. If you can go back to the car, take a ladder and shoot down at the car from an angle- the blur effect you're using can fool people into thinking you're shooting macro-photos of miniatures.

Some HDR stuff is awesome - Vieux-Québec is gorgeous, Jean - but with other shots removing the shadows kills the depth and moodiness.

catweazle, your conversion looks like an illustration to me, rather than a black and white photo. Here's a quick monocrhome conversion I did of the original that's more to my liking:

I shoot RAW, but most shots see very little PP, and the only stuff that sees Photoshop is when I need to composite images for a design project (PP that I do is in Aperture - if I were on a PC, I'd use Lightroom).

Thank you RUS, I will remember that and I'll ask the guy next time if I can shoot from above if the car is not sold by then.
