How long, how low can I slide?

Red Hot
Red Hot

ISO 1600
f8
1/600


Taken in July at thei farmer's market.

I've been sitting on this one for a while. I knew there was something good in the original but it was a bitch figuring out HOW to fix it. Many failed attemps But.... The DOF wasn't quite right so a adjusted it with a masking layer. Blurred out some of the noise, damn forgetting to change the ISO. But I like this. Though not as much as the beans picture. Which, by the way, I submitted to a contest. Well see if I get any response. :)

It's incredibly vibrant. I like this one a lot. I'm going to have to go back and look at the beans to see if I agree with what you say about it being better... I really like this.

I'll see if I can find it.

I think this just means I'm getting better.

BEANS!
I tagged it too. Now it's part of the photography stream.

SAF. swank as fuck.

that belongs in a cookbook.

you did a great job on capturing the reds without them blowing out, especially seeing that that was an ISO1600 and not 100. i'd have expected mroe noise in the image.

Thanks! Lotsa effort in tis one. Glad it was worth it.

Because of all those shots I took at 1600, I learned how to fix most of the blue-green noise you get at faster film speeds. :)
I'm a photoshop NINJA.

Absolutely. i need to learn how to photograph humans. Vegetables, I can do. Humans are difficult.

Pesky humans.

We should plan for an outing at golden hour soon, while they happen late enough to scout areas. I tried tonight but the clouds rolled in thirty minutes before sunset and stole all my colors.

However, I stumbled into some fantastic things in the dark. :)

Yep. Like this one better. It doesn't have as much light play as the beans, but it's more striking.

I think you're just biased against capsaicin.

Um.... That would make me like this one less, dear.

*pat, pat*

*grin*

I KNOW. You're a clever one.

I know... *grin* You ok today?
abmann From: abmann Date: August 10th, 2006 02:10 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yeah. My body is just mega sore and tired from all the biking treadmilling and hiking yesterday. I'm going to work from home starting around eleven. I figure I can work about a half day from here pretty easily.

Nice. Lucky.

6pm Barriques meeting up with graydancer. :)

ohhh i liked beans a mighty bunch (and good luck in that contest!) but these colors are so beautiful and rich that i love this one too. even if eating one of them would make me dance around in pain and stick my tongue in the shower.
abmann From: abmann Date: August 10th, 2006 04:54 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm liking this more and more. I may submit this to a contest as well. The one I entered, you can enter up to five photos a month. Woo magazines with high/quick turn around.

I'd need to fine tune the blur though.

Yay shower dance!
