Like the shot of London Eye with County Hall in the Background. Stopped there a few weeks back. Awesome Star Wars exhibition on there at the moment.

I never got a chance to go to the Star Wars exhibition but somebody wearing a storm trooper outfit did walk past me while I was there.

I love that shot of the bullet and the rose!

I dont do photography as a living although it is something I would very much like to do at some point, I have sold a few pictures for various uses and won some photocomps. I've only been really 'into' photography for about a 18 months or so when I purchased my dSLR.

Some quality stuff on here, great variety too. Only been taking an interest in photography since November so it'd be a shame to ruin the thread with my toss, but hey... t'internet's rife with that kind of behaviour!

Some awesome shots here, most of these are things we see every day but do not appreciate.



I like Linzie

Cheers, mole. That was a lucky one earlier this week, just weighing up the unusual curb/cobbles when that young fella plonked himself down and started reading.

Looking at your selection you seem to have a deft touch when it comes to PP, something I'm a complete buffoon with Any pointers (books/sites etc) or is it all hands-on learning?

Most of my PP techniques I basically learnt from just playing around in photoshop a lot. I read alot of the articles on sites like www.luminous-landscape.com too things like how to create contrast masks local contrast enhancement and things like that. I also shoot in nothing but RAW and have done for about the last year.

My usual workflow would be the following:
Import RAW file into Photoshop,
Crop, set white balance, knock exposure down to -0.5 or -1, bump shadow contrast and brightness up to expose the image correctly and import into photoshop as a 16bit image.

A touch of Unsharp mask (usually 10-20%, 60px radius, 0 threshold)
Any colour correction I feel is needed with Hue/Saturation/Lightness (or convert to B&W using Calculations/Chanel Mixer)

Smart Sharpen full sized image (usually 150-300%, 0.3px radius, 0 threshold)
Save 16bit TIFF.

resize down to 800x533

Smart Sharpen to make up for the loss in sharpness from the resize (usually 100%, 0.3, 0)
convert to 8bit, convert to sRGB save as jpeg qual 8~9


Sorry if its a bit sprawling but I dont have a set work flow and some images go through a lot more processing depending on the subject, The London Eye shot had some perspective correction work to stop the building and the Eye look like its 'leaning back' (converging verticles)
