Interesting post. The technical stuff makes me even more sure that I would be hopelessly lost with serious film, even though I learned it at college a million years ago. It is all worryingly close to maths, which instills brain freeze.

On the (finished) photo itself, my only point of critique is that the tones on the grass around the base of the cross seemed rather flat, though now seeing the original scan it is also clear that much work has been put in on that front.



Toby it us not as complicated as it sounds and very easy to do in fact its a lot easier than getting to grips with all the menus on a DSLR emoticon

Martin, I've never managed to do that either. I can change the ISO, and format the memory card, that's about it.

Re: Cowpers Cross


would make a great example on the NEW board (if thats happening)

One thing I forgot to mention is the examples section that should be in the learning forum(new ) of before and after-IMO that should abe a big well developed section as it is the crux of the learning

your examples are ideal for this Martin (I know a lot of work but maybe add one a week or sufffuink emoticon

lovely image this

Re: Cowpers Cross


the thing to emphasise in the tutorial IMO is the luminance, that is what makes this - just looked at it again

I still struggle to 'see' or visualise it as easily as you obviously do Martin

Re: Cowpers Cross


Thank you Simon, I think the magical quality in many landscapes is created by shooting with the sunlight coming towards the camera this in its self creates luminance
