    Beautiful “underbrush” colours found almost hidden under a large spruce tree along the river pathway. Thanks Sarah for pointing it out!

    The colours were enhanced by post processing with the “Levels” tool and “Gamma” and “Offset” controls in Photoshop.

      Overview of previous image, with more “realistic” colours. Sometimes you just walk past beautiful “opportunities”.

      Nice to see the before and after shots and the wonders of Photoshop. I am hoping we can get another event in this fall. Thank you Henri! It was fun meeting up again!

    I am sorry that I miss the group outing

  7. Debra says:

    Henri does so much for others! Thank you for all you do for our group I have learned so much from you. This isn’t as sharp as I had hoped. Fun times none the less.

    Action shot. A study in motion. Blending 4 images together in photoshop.

  9. Debra says:

    Let’s have some fun! Barbara landing a “fish out of water”.

    I like this image for the two different patterns. The heavy tree trunks on the right and the colourful curved foliage on the left. The image has action interest in the center. The red ball cap draws the eye. The balance between the patterns make this image more appealing in my opinion.

    Panorama view across the river with my 400 mm zoom lens. Two images stitched together. Post processed using the “Levels”, “Gamma” and “Offset” tools.

        Henri I’m wondering if we can start doing this with all our photos. We can just click on them. Mine always look blurry at 800 pixels wide. They are tack sharp on my laptop at full rez.

  13. Frankie says:

    Experimental photo to click on.
    Totally focused on the task!
    ISO 1600, 129 mm, f/10, 1/400 sec

    ISO 1600, 240 mm, f/10, 1/640 sec

  15. Frankie says:

    On my laptop, I can see the sharp corners and shadows of the hexagons on the soccer ball in the photo above, for example. It looks so blurry compared with the original. In the clickable photo above that one, the word “Nikon” on Geoff’s camera strap is blurry as posted at 1400 pixels wide (1.7 MB), illegible on the one I saved at 800 pixels (557 KB) and extremely sharp on my laptop (5.4 MB).

    The difference in sharpness makes sense when you see these pixel numbers, but looking at other websites that have really sharp photos, I wonder if it’s due to the limitations of WordPress or if there’s something I can do on my end. (I am saving the photos as .jpg with “maximum” selected under “quality.”)

    This photo: I was drawn to the same maple tree as Della, clearly the only one in Alberta!
    ISO 800, 240 mm, f/7.1, 1/320
    Besides brilliance, brightness, contrast, black point, etc., I also fooled around with yellow and red selective colour sliders a bit. You guys are wearing off on me!

    Funny how we are drawn to the Maple tree that is so hard to grow here.

    Original sharper. Image softer after reducing size for upload.
