2, less color noise (?).
I'm actually pretty surprised at how much noise there is on the third picture for only being ISO 1600. What camera was this taken with @de.das.dude? It looks like an APS-C camera given the metadata on the images.

I took a picture (nothing special) of a country view. My wife looked at it and stopped. She was confused and when she said what she saw, I realised how cool it looked. Explanation below the pic.

country.jpg


A field with two sheep and a tree with mist beyond. Above that rises the hill. But if you view the mist as the horizon of the lower picture, you can see two photos in one.

hey!!
3rd picture has a funny story. It was taken on a nikon d5600 with tokina 11-16 f2.8, but my friend gave me the jpg file. jpg had too much white noise. So i imported that and tuned the jpg itself lmao.

this is what i got as jpg



his nef files arent supported on my older lightroom version :D hence the jumping through hoops.

BTW, i bought a used tokina 11-16 f2.8 DX yesterday for decent value: 229 USD.
It has some slight fungal action inside.. but its not affecting the image quality. Lens is otherwise barely used and looks brand new.

Any ideas on how easy it will be to clean it? (note: i am a mechanical engineer and have access to lots of tools, acetone / IPA etc.) Can i use normal windex/glass cleaners?

Went a walk with wife to Cambusbarron in Stirling. The woods we walked among were host to the wee folk that supported Robert the Bruce's attempt to defeat the English at Bannockburn in 1306. I was literally walking in the woods where history was made. Following the defeat of Edward II, the declaration of Arbroath was signed in 1320 which recognised Scotland as a single nation. It stayed that way for 400 years, until the Darien dream bankrupted Scotland, after which, the Act of Union was signed which brought Scotland and England together to form the precursor of the UK. To think, 800 years ago, where I did tread, men and women toiled to make something of a country beyond all mortal dreams.

Anyway. Some pics of Cambusbarron.

Studio shoot with a good boy. A3 print came out amazing (phone pic does not do it justice) on Ilford fine art gold fibre pearl on the Epson P800 but for some reason after printing it has curled up. Printing is new to me and have not experienced it on different ilford a2 paper and not sure if it is because of the paper itself or maybe the ink load in the icc profile for the paper.. But it should not be an issue once framed. Owner is going to be over the moon.

If you have a flash I highly recommend a diffuser. Something like the one here https://www.facebook.com/MK-Diffuser-1074156426083242/ And maybe later add in a Raynox DCR 250 :D

I got an old 105mm 2.8D - Nikon | Imaging Products | Product Archive - AF Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8D

Was just poking around indoors to see what this one likes and doesn't like. Needs more light than I expected.............I've always just been using a softboxed Godox SL60 indoors, my puny brain can't quite wrap itself around how to use flash (and expensive!) so I was debating picking up one of those square LED lights for when I head outside - VL49 light

All of a sudden, my tripod don't feel so stable anymore :D been lazily hanging a bottle on it for weight, till I noticed the entire picture swaying in the viewfinder :laugh:

That little light looks the good. Flash does not have to be complicated though you can pick up TTL Yongnuo flash cheap (maybe second hand) and that is as easy as putting in TTL mode with the difuser on and going for it the flash will do the work

Got a very long way to go..................I was warned by a photography expert friend that I would need patience when working outside with this lens..............they are painfully correct

flower is maybe 20mm diameter? Big ones are all late bloomers so the tiny ones are all I can work with yet in the yard

Wouldn't stopping down a little help with capturing details around the center of the flower? Here they are going in and out of focus due to the depth of field.

Hence "got a very long way to go" :laugh:

Unfortunately this tiny one was way back in the corner in the shade, impossible to set a tripod so it was handheld and f/4.5. bit of wind too

I tried some tiny apertures (down to f/32) yesterday in a very controlled environment, and I gave up

Can't really do narrow aperture landscape unless light is fantastic. You need high shutter speeds to freeze movement, so aperture makes the light worse. End up with crazy iso and grain, unless the sensor is superb.
