It is interesting how our psyche works, how we respond to images showing deterioration and decay that implies passage of time and finality, triggering the course of memories, either your own or of prior generations.
When we are faced with them, it does not come to mind to count pixels and split hairs, we observe image as a whole and appreciate it by likely using the right side of our brain:)

It's interesting though how most all such images feature the juxtaposition of very youthful subjects, implicitly flirting with death.  I wonder how those very images will age themselves though.  But this is not to impugn the artistry of those who create them.  I do like the images that have been shown here.

It is funny, how in this day of super-high-tech digital cameras with unprecedented resolution etc there seems to be a longing for the simulated film look, including "vintage" colors, fake scratches and stains. Maybe in 30 years there will be software to re-create that 2D photo look with the artificial digital noise and blown highlights  Smiley

In the meantime, to atone for my first, sub-FX post in this thread, a real MF photo, taken during a break in the real shoot. Shot with a Fuji GX680 (open that can of worms at your own peril).

I was going to ask the same question.  They are stunning images!  The only minor tweak I'd suggest is to fix the haloing above the building in the second shot.  The talent looks great!

Another panorama I shot at sunrise this week for one of my clients.

14 images taken with a Nikon D800E and Nikon 50mm F1.4 G lens in a horizontal position and stitched in PS6.

Well done, as usual, Simon. You don't seem to be having any problems with moire along the railings, for example. I made some photographs recently with the D800 (not E) had a had moire at the vertical balcony railings. Any thoughts on how to eliminate this?

Thanks,
Ed

Hi Ed,

Thanks for your kind words. Unfortunately I wish I had some words of wisdom concerning moiré but I was just lucky this time. I did have the lens set a F11.0 if that helps.

Cheers

Simon,

Thanks - that's kind of what I thought and does help. I was at f/8. I'll try stopping down a touch more the next time I'm confronted with that type of situation.

Been wanting to shoot this cathedral for years, but they always told me no, along with every other photographer that asked.  Fortunately I took on the lighting designer as a client and he got me in there for two half days.  If any asks, I shot all of these for him.   Wink

For the two shots up the Nave and the shaight-on shot of the sanctuary, I used no additional light, just good timing.  The others had some tungsten lighting.  Also, for the sanctuary, my client coated the windows with a purple film so the sanctuary would glow purple during the day, which I thought was pretty cool.

HI Ed, I think there is a Moire Reduction Tool in CaptureOne. I've never used it but it might help.

Antonio, you are correct. I just reopened the files and it does help. I usually use Phocus for my Hasselblad files, and only began using C1 recently for the D800 images.

Many thanks,
Ed

The can image is indeed perfect but I find it looks exactly like a render than a still image because of its perfection.  Huh

Why? Takes longer, costs more. And if you want to do a few spritzed versions it's 5 minutes.

No offence, but it appears none of you writers had ever seen either a 4"x5" or 8"x10" transparency of a beer can or a whisky bottle on a lightbox.

Have to agree. To me it looks like a rather average 1970's airbrush illustration.
