    The mountain is gorgeous, but I keep coming back to that plant shot. It's got an extraordinary amount of depth.

    Regarding having my work hung: argh they hung them in a single cluster in an equidistant grid regardless of size and aspect ratio
    they didn't even try a french hanging arrrgh
    oh god it's so ugly


    so, never going into that building again.

    Uuuugh all three of those are incredible @Sublimus well done man. Nice contrast between the three as well, Landscape/Foliage/Cityscape and the colors are all really well done. You doing some split toning? Really like how your post work has been turning out lately.

    @tynic Thank you! yeah I like the calmness of that plant shot. Been trying to get something like that for a while now!

    @Prospicience Aw thanks, dude!! Been trying to mess with split tones more! That plant shot had a lot I think. My goal is to always go as extreme as I can while still looking natural. Somehow it seems to make all the colors more vivid? Not a fan of the heavy handed instagram look, but when it's done well it's magical.

    Anywho, stayed up all night last night and got this. It's leaps above my last effort, but I'm still not happy haha. I learn so much every time, even in the last like 5 attempts that were all complete failures.

    Photo thread, what are you using for processing software these days? Is leasing Lightroom the best option?

    @Skeith I use lightroom for like 95% of my edits, and very rarely crack open PS if I need to do some crazy exposure blending or something.

    The thing that's nice about lightroom aside from it being almost all the editing you'll ever need, is it's also a great catalog software too.

    There might be other stuff out there too, but since I use PS for other stuff anyway I got lightroom for free and pretty much have no complaints with it.

    I did a thing. Well, several hundred things over the years, most of which didn't turn out. Some of the ones that did can be found at that link, but I'll be fooling around in Lightroom for a while.

    @Skeith Woo! Make sure to post your favorites here too!

    My family did a trip out to Yosemite/Sequoia/Napa for my mom's 60th birthday. These are the best I could get given the circumstances. I feel like I should be ok with them, but my standards always outpace my abilities.

    I also took some more "cinematic" shots, but I'm still messing with those edits.

    I agree!! (And thank you, as this is now officially not a triple post :P )

    My cinematic edits from my family trip. I didn't actually shoot any video, but I wanted to practice composing in this aspect ratio, and editing with a cinema look in mind. (I intend to start shooting more video though, so this is practice/exploration for that.)

    So I'm a few days late for the Spoopy Season, but it's taken me awhile to gather up enough courage to post my stuff. I'm just shooting this with my phone but a thousand thanks go to the person who told me about Snapseed cause I've gotten some really cool looks out of it. Behold!

    So, I have been rocking a Fuji X-E2S for a couple years now, and have been starting to think about an upgrade. I am seriously considering this Fuji X-H1 + Battery Grip deal happening now ($999), anyone here using one of them? I know they are bigger and built for video, but the big draw for me is the better sesnor (X-Trans III at 24mp vs X-Trans II at 16mp).

    I also bought a Pentax Spotmatic II recently (w/ SMC Takumar 55 1.8)... I have a problem, folks.

    I think you did a pretty damn good job given this was just a holiday. Yosemite is one of the most photographed areas and you probably didn't have the luxury of sitting around for days on end waiting for the right light/cloud cover to get that perfect shot. I would try to not compare yourself to those people.

    No, I am not really communist. Yes, it is weird that I use this name.

    So, I took this shot on a walk through downtown Austin last weekend. I dig the colors, and think it came out alright. I have a huge backlog of photos to process right now, as since the kiddo was born in March, I haven't really had an opportunity to play around too much.

    Also, I ended up trading in my X-E2S for an X-H1.

    Hello photo thread! I'm a newcomer to the art, so I had a few questions:
    1. What do you use/recommend for sharing photos privately? E.g. I'd like to not see the images plastered somewhere, though I can't stop someone from reposting them.
    2. What do you use/recommend for sharing photos publicly?
    3. What if I'm interested in feedback?
    4. Any recommendations for underwater photography with limited equipment? I'm going snorkeling soon, and I bought an Olympus TG-6 with a float strap so I'm hoping to catch a turtle or two. Yes, it has an underwater photography mode and yes I'll be using it, but since it's not something I can practice with until I'm there, I'm looking for anything that can speed up that learning curve.

    Thanks!

    edit: and while it's pretty grainy and shows some of the stigmata of tone mapping, it's still one of my favorite photos I've taken so far:

    Both flickr and google will let you set up private albums and fully control permissions on your photos. I prefer Flickr, but probably mostly for legacy reasons.

    and this thread is a pretty good place for feedback!

    I got through my first test roll of film for my Spotmatic II. Opted to use Kodak 400TX black and white film, and all in all I am really happy with the results. Mostly I was just taking shots around the house, and of the baby, but I feel they turned out pretty well considering it was my first foray into film photography. I've uploaded some of the shot here: https://www.flickr.com/gp/[email protected]/n0X771. I did next to no editing on the TIFs, so I was happy to see that the meter on the camera was mostly right.

    Super cool! Been meaning to start messing with film myself!..... one day haha

    [edit] Finally sat down and edited some photos. Still messing with a "cinematic" or "filmic" look. And trying street photography, which I find intriguing recently. Like "what makes a good street photo?" I like that there's no real answer. And as you kind of come up with your own answer, it sort of forces a voice out of you.

    Anyway with all that being said, I think these photos are more sizzle than steak, but at least it's a proof of concept for when I snap something more worthwhile. (oh also please excuse the overly artsy selfie lol)

    I think one thing that I am getting from messing with film is to slow down, and frame things properly and think about composition. It's certainly not fully translating into my digital photography yet, but I am doing a lot less 'spray and pray' with my camera now.

    That said, made proper use of the continuous autofocus on my new camera this past weekend, after taking the kiddo to the park for the first time.

    Really happy with this one, as I feel I caught her at her happiest. She was having a ball, and it was her first time on a swing.

    @tynic That third shot is great! :D


    Haven't been shooting too much lately (I am a bum). So here is a re-edit of an older shot. I never liked the old version, but I enjoy this one!
