[QUOTE="Sparc, post: 0]Nice! Well done getting the stitched together. :D[/quote]
Why, thank you. It is my first try at actually making a panorama. Very pleased with the result. I ordered a print the other day so it should be here in about a week. Size: 8inX40in. Now I'm looking for matting and framing. Should be fun.
Two from a while back:

[QUOTE="joeold, post: 0]One from today:

Its about four images.[/quote]

I love panoramics. They just look sweet as huge images on the wall.

How are you doing your B&W conversion?

I use a simple BW adjustment layer inside of photoshop.

The image is a little flat. You might want to try some tweaking to increase the tonal range and pump the contrast a bit. Just watch your highlights.

If you use PhotoShop try downloading the free trial of NIK's SILVER EFEX PRO. It's simply the best for B&W.

The "structure" slider is the best! Try it anyway..

just heard a ruffle sound outside, and came out to realise it was two hedgehogs having sex! dirty ******s :snicker

i got my camera out but by then one had run away, the only one left was hiding against the wall

managed to get a nice-ish shot anyway :D



picture taken on a nikon D3, don't ask me about the settings because i don't have a clue :lol:

and then don't ask me why i've got a D3 if i know nothing about cameras, its my dads :p

haha nice one :snicker Hedgehogs are cheeky lil gits! I was out with my mate one time and we went to meet our friend to walk her home from a club because it gets a bit dodgy at night. We took a fresh bottle of beer each when we left and on the way there we saw this baby hedgehog, we stood there looking at it and then my mate goes "oh ****". I turned around and this police van pulls over and they make us pour away our beer and took our names :snicker we did as they asked and it was all fine, but i kept thinking that if it wasnt for that lil hedgehog we would of still had our beers!

All shots off a Nikon D90 w/55mm-200mm 2.8FD
ISO Range from 250-2500
Forgot the rest of the stuff lmao. I want to create a site in the future, once I get a bit better and get my Mark II after I buy an EX3. I like shooting people more than anything. They're much more interesting than landscapes in my opinion.

Yeah the last shots that I didn't upload have a fixed white balance. But most of the shots are pretty boring but technically the most correct. Oh the irony...

EDIT: Now that I look at them only a couple of those are messed up.

I call this one Angry Teddy!

Taken with friends Canon Rebel XSi with her stock lens. I really don't like the interface on that camera, I don't know if all Canon's have the same one but eh. I totally like the Nikon one more. Especially when it comes to custom white balance settings. I bjorked a lot of shots because I was completely gone while I took these pics lmao.



More to Come! Drunk people are so fun to photograph!
