One picture that sums up what you like about photography.

Discussion in 'Digital SLR' started by Dr Hfuhruhurr, Sep 21, 2006.

  1. Seeing another thread gave me the gall (or should that be balls) to
    suggest the following:
    I'm fairly new to this group and quite new to the world of DSLR. I'm a
    complete amateur but I like taking photos.

    So here's my (current) favourite picture for all to see (and no doubt
    rip to shreds)

    Anyone else care to post their favourite DSLR pic?

  2. Hartland Quay - I was there just a few days after your visit - it's a great
    place for taking photos!

    I'd crop out the reflection due to the filter or whatever at the top of
    the image.
    Other than that, it's not bad.

    In response to "One picture that sums up what you like about
    photography" I would suggest any published shot by Joe Cornish, the
    British landscape photographer.

    But he doesn't use a DSLR. He uses an Ebony 4"x5" large format film
    camera with Schneider lenses. There is no DSLR that can approach, let
    alone equal, the quality of results obtainable with that equipment,
    and Joe Cornish is truly a master.

    The shot you linked to shows burnt out highlights that are typical of
    a DSLR. They would have been avoidable had a low contrast negative
    film been used. But I agree, it is an attractive image.

    Hey Doc,

    Commendations on putting up the photo for all to see. I've considered
    doing it but I "haven't gotten around to it yet". Having said that let me
    offer a few(constructive, I hope) comments.

    Shooting directly into the sun demands too much from your camera's
    dynamic range. The rocks don't have much detail because the sun on the water
    will be completely blown out at a longer exposure. I'm sure your eyes saw
    some great scenery, your camera just doesn't match them.

    I think that one says he couldn't find a restroom...and settled for a bush.

  12. Wow. looks like the weather changed from when I visited.
    I'll put some more up when I can be arsed, but I agree about it being a
    great place and I took far too many photos :)
