Hey....nth eyre not real sharp viewed here. Much better locally... Why is that?
Shield bud intentionally blurred with exception of the eye.
nice pics mate. Love macros. Not sure why they are not that sharp here on the forum. Might be a compression / down sampling thing?
I took my wide angle out today too and snapped this up. Need to get used to it. It's not like a 'normal lens' and autofocus is much harder. I use continuous servo autofocus with the back AE/AF set for focus and the shutter button just for a shutter and not autofocus. That way one press of the back button I can focus on a stationary object, then reframe and shoot. Or if I hold down the back button ive got it set to 3D tracking. So in essence I've got AFS single for stationary and AFC/3D set up with a press of a button for action shooting.
Some of my candid images of the family came out blurry or my camera focused on the wrong thing while the subject matters were moving (on f2.8 ). All down to user error. Looks like I need to take a different approach to autofocus with the wide lens for candid shots. It's a different beast all together.
Did post process the images below to further dramatise the hell of a windy and stormy day we had here down in Melb.
Pic is of cherry lake. First pic some Hollywood style HDR. Second pic has some bold grungy type HDR processing and some dehazing to bring out the blue sky from beneath? the clouds. I think it dramatises the scene well. Both pics at 11mm f11.
I had the sun in the first pic right above (slightly out of frame) and had minimal glare. I did another shoot with the sun in frame and the glare / flares again were tolerable. Very surprised.
Both pics had any distortion removed with dxo optics lens profiles.
