Some stuff from the weekend
on: April 20, 2011, 13:35:33 PM
Walked to my parents over the weekend along the riverside and took a few photos, I haven't processed many of them yet but will add more as I go but so far here's the first one.

Only thing I could do with improving is the ones of the Dandelion flower, which could have more DoF.

I've got a few more to go through but probably won't get them looked at till the weekend.

A fluffy weekend :D

Extremely, and I've still got more to go through from then and I was out tonight taking another 80 odd pictures, at least it only takes me about 5-10 minutes a photo to process its just deciding which ones to do that's the problem.

I'm having to be pretty brutal with my selections now, as the photos from the 7D are chewing up my HDD space quickly. So when I transfer photos to the comp step #1 is for any burst shots, or ones from similar angles, I have to go through and delete all but the best one. There's lots of clicking back and forth to decide which is slightly more in focus etc ><

Its a Nikon D50, but its the lens thats more important in these photos, its a sigma 105mm F2.8 macro lens, so lets you get closer to what your trying to take a photo of.

Few more I've gone and processed, probably just use this thread to stick anything and everything in rather than keep creating a new thread every time.

Must learn to give it a bit extra aperture to get more DoF when doing macro stuff, I'm new to it really so got an excuse :D

Not 100% happy with those 2 but don't think they're too bad, could have done with getting the sun behind some trees to lessen the area of the sky that's blown a bit

I do not think that is a fungi but a flower of some kind.

Went to a Medieval Day at Bede's World (A local sort of Museum/Farm all about St Bede) and they had a falconry display on, managed to grab a few photos from that, quite a good couple of hours out for free.

Couple of new ones from me, got more to process but went down for a wander near Bede's World (for those in the area) and found a few interesting things, starting with some Bee Macros.  Could have done with being a bit brighter at the time, it was rather overcast and I was struggling to get the shutter speed up enough to prevent bluring whilst keeping a fairly decent aperture, anyhow couple came out good so can't complain too much.  Out of curiosity, anyone know the tree that they're on? (long shot I know since I've only got the blossom to go off)

And some more from the same trip, not sure which I prefer of the 2 really, probably the first.

Think I'd prefer #2 if you cropped it to be square with just the left and central setions (IE, get rid of the bit on the right)

That's not a bad idea, I'll try and do it later on and see what its like, can't say I've gone for a square crop on a picture before but it might work here.

Ok then here's a square crop of the same pic
