Ah... nature is full of surprises. Look at what a beautiful lizard I had the chance to take a shot today:

This page only had 4 thumbnails before you posted. I'd agree if you were referring to the previous page, which had become unbearable and luckily has been left behind.

Striker those shots are awesome, you should upload them to DA... and as for that butterfly TJB, I don't know if it's unusual there, but in my country we have tons of them.

Latvia is full of many different butterflies, but this is the most common one:

It is pretty much a very rich country nature wise, but sadly not monies wise. A very large part of the country hasn't been touched by humans so it has many areas full of creatures; massive forest areas, swamps, many lakes, many rivers and a large coast line with nice beaches. If your a nature lover you should visit it.

Wait 'till you see how strange-looking people we host too...

Anyway, about landscapes skals, Romania is home to some of the most beautiful landscapes, and if that's not true, then at least it's home to a very big variety of landscapes. We have it all: big mountains, hilly areas, fields... ahh... and I have the honour to live in a beautiful landscape too.
Hopefully I'll be able to finish a "no-comment" type of video presenting my area.

[EDIT] Also, a photo of the sky:

I really pumped up the contrast in this one :), that's why it looks a bit noisy.

My skills didn't help in any way the fireworks shot, I put it in Auto Mode because I had to be quick(I only caught the last seconds of fireworks).

That's a very ominous-looking sky, there.
Don't worry, it wasn't a storm.

@nickelplate: I like the flower one :).

@DiscoStu: Oh, so you have DSLR? From what I know there are some kind of "inverting" adaptors so you can mount the lens in the other direction. Oh well, but I only heard of this I don't really know if it's possible.

That cat pic of yours, (c)Striker, has really nice colours. The stick and the two pole things in the background are somewhat distracting, though. But you can't really control where a cat's going to go, can you.

And I like this one of yours, DiscoStu:

Though I think it would look nicer with the sign in the top-left, and the block of wood bottom-left cropped out of the shot.

Composition is such a bitch for me to get right.

So would I. But I do have a cheap macro filter pack that sorta' does the job, though. For an amateur like myself, anyway.

Are you talking about that grey metal box? I thought of leaving those out, but I later decided I like it as it is.

@Striker. yes, there are adapters for using lenses backwards. But I don't have one anyway.

Edit: Have some moon.

What lenses do you have Strider?

Here are some from me too. I rarely shoot RAW though, I feel it's a bit exaggerate.

There was a safe in the house when we bought it, but we don't have the key to it. Sadly it was open and had nothing inside.

The quality difference is visible between shots of mine and shots with a dslr :(.

Is there a big difference in quality with RAW vs FINE?

Posted 9 years ago2010-08-30 18:30:47 UTC Post #284791
RAW is a lossless format, of course there will be a difference compared against JPEG.

The most important part is that you get the raw light data straight from the sensor, which you can later post-process to retrieve more detail in the image than the camera can generate for a JPEG.

Depends on each camera's own algorithm how close is the out of camera jpeg compared to its raw version, some get it better than others. My camera does a pretty good job and they look pretty much the same.

I'm fine with jpeg anyway, I don't really need to use RAW. But I'm glad I have it in case I ever need it.

What lenses do you have Strider?
Standard 18-55mm lense, f/3.5 - 5.6. I use a polariser filter too, I think it makes a world of difference with outdoor shots. Can't afford a nice new lense right now. ;P

This is exactly why I work with RAW. If I find places I think are too washed out, or overbright, I can usually tone them down just enough without losing much quality.

I"ve got a fair few pics I forgot to switch to RAW for and when looking at them later on the PC, it's kind of ruined them.

EDIT:
Damn, Caboose, you've been busy. Some amazing stuff in there. I love what you've done with the colours, I've always wanted to try working with really minimal colours, but I never like my results.

Really, really beautiful. It must be a hobby of yours :P?

Anyway, I made some new close-ups after I found an old "Electronika" calculator(russian calculator) that has self-lit digits.

I'm not going to post all of them because you can find them in my blog post, but I'm posting the one that I like the most(as a preview :)):

Yeah Striker, it's a hobby, but I'm considering maybe turning it into a career. Who knows. I'd always wanted to get into photography, but never really did anything about it until I ran into some money back in February and picked up a Nikon D3000. Not too great of a camera relative to every other DSLR Nikon makes, but it's cheap and certainly gets the job done. All those pictures were taken with that camera and the 18-55mm kit lens it came with.

Nice shot there, by the way. Old electronics FTW.
