thanks for the compliments.

mike, on those sun pics, are you using ND filters or something to keep the sun from blowing out the image?

ND filters wouldn't help in those instances. ND filters make the entire image equally darker, they don't dim just the brightest part. Graduated filters would make just part of the image darker, but in this case that would affect the exposure of elements that span the full height of the picture too (ie. the wind turbine). Also, most ND filters would do terribly with the sun in the frame because they increase the chance of flare and glare.

That's just careful exposure and some manipulation in post processing to bring up the shadow details so the sun doesn't overwhelm them.

what he said
- love, Mike :p


i used f/10 and 1/2000th sec at ISO 80 and purposely underexposed by a little to control some of the blowout. virtually no adjustments at all in processing. it looked just like that straight from the camera (orangeness was really that orange too)

I second this. Never use a ND filter shooting directly into the Sun. All about Shutter speed and opening the Fstop. Nicely done Mike. Cheers JIM

@Mike-Sol Y Viento is one of those pics I wish I'd taken!


It's that time again , the first submission deadline for the important art shows this year is Nov 30 and due to increased family responsibillity I haven't had near enough time out with the cameras.Still I was able to scratch out my three lead shots and three fall backs.
A version of this first one will be going into a smaller local show in Feb. and is one of my "fall backs "for big show submissions.

I just got around to processing this waterfall from my Maui trip last month. I decided that a high contrast HDR treatment was the way to go.

Wow Mike, that new lens is making your work even more brilliant that usual.. and I didn't think that was possible.

DRN: Love Oceanna, beautiful shot.

Mongooz: Wrinkles is so weird, it keeps bringing me back to look at it and figure out how you took that shot. Excellent photo.

Jimbo: Beautiful greens! No snow out there?

FP: And was I wrong? :p
