I had a very similar 'problem' when I mistakenly used a Skylight(1B) instead of UV(0) filter on one of my lenses. Maybe same issue?

Re: Any Photographers with DSLR's Around ?

Wow, quite the difference in colour on the wall to the right. I guess you're right about the homework. Nikon have pretty good on-line support though.

On another topic, I recently watched a webinar on Wildlife Photography by Tom Mangelsen & he recommends leaving any Nikon set at -1/3rd exposure at all times. This struck a chord for me as very often I find myself reducing exposure in post. I'm giving it a try. It's too early to tell if I'll stick with this, but it made sense given my processing experience.

There are two schools of thought. One is to expose 'just right' when taking a picture - this saves you a step in postproc. Another is to expose 'to the right' (histogram wise) but without overexposure and correct in postproc. First approach saves time, second approach gives finer detail in shades. Mostly a matter of personal preferences and needs.

Re: Any Photographers with DSLR's Around ?

mrm definitely a UV filter.
PC, mrm thank you for the tips I will try them. The Pentax may have been to pink “coconut ice” because the white ceiling is also pink and the Nikon, as indicated, may be slightly over exposed.
What I am not too happy about is, that the focusing point is a thin black rectangle when in focus and very hard to see if the subject is also dark. I could not find an option to change that colour. In the Pentax a green luminescent indicator when in focus brackets the focusing point. Setting the beep On help a bit. But it would be nice to be able to confirm that the focus point was on the subject and not shifted onto the Barbados cherry on the right.
On manual the electronic in focus indicator is in the bottom of the viewfinder and difficult to see when aiming at the subject. It seem curious than a reflex camera do depend on an electronic device for focusing when on Manual..

Ocean Girl- what an amazing photo. It has a slight resemblance to that Death Star in Star Wars! Scary big.

Re: Any Photographers with DSLR's Around ?

I had a...
- Rebel XT (gave away)
- T3i (stolen in London)
- 6D (smashed)

This was a trip I took from 2012 to 2014. Not on the boat. Some are T3i some are 6D.

Re: Any Photographers with DSLR's Around ?

Nice pictures We use a 5D and a 7D; about to get the 7D Mk2

Birds are mostly done with a 100-400mm or a 70-300mm. Insects are done with a 105mm macro with ringflash or dual-head macro flash.

a bird today, the Yellow-bellied Elaenia overlooking his domain:

Resizing is simply making a photo smaller. You can use Photoshop, Lightroom or any other photo manipulation software to reduce the size of a photo. The "600" refers to the size of the image in pixels. That is, the photo will be 600 pixels long on the long edge. 600 pixels is equal to 2".

Photobucket is a web site where you can upload your photos. You can use it for free as long as you don't upload a ton of photos. You can then post the link to your photos in this or other forums, to show others your work.

For example. Here is a photo I snapped atop Mt. Washington NH of the observatory. I resized it to 900 pixels long and uploaded it to my Photobucket account. I then copied and pasted the IMG link to the photo to this forum. When you click on the photo, it takes you the album I created in Photobucket where you can view other photos I uploaded to that particular gallery. You can see the IMG link in the gallery on the right when you are in the gallery.



Hope this helps.

Nice night-picture, look at the stars

My favorite is landscape photography. I was pretty happy with these that we captured in Kentucky last October:
