    Back from china.... I find that I mainly work with the standard, natural and vivid colour profiles. I use the natural one when I am outside during the day, and switch to a vivid one at night.

    I do photography for a hobby, I use a 4x5 camera most of the time although I also use a Canon 35mm system, which is about to change from film to a digital body.

    My 4x5 is a wooden field camera and I use lenses from 65mm to 300.

    I enjoy outdoor photography most although shoot portrait as well.

    Nice site for nature photographers and one where I'm a moderator is

    I need some help please with regard to prices on camera lenses.

    I figure to post it here seeing as more camera buffs are lurking around here......

    The 2 lenses I am looking at are

    1 x Nikkon AF 50mm F1.4D Lens.

    1 x Canon ES (could be EF) 20-35mm F2.8L Redline series lens.

    Would anyone know what they are worth please.

    And if anyone is interested in buying them from me please let me know.

    Thanks

    Those are some nice landscapes there tuppaware. I have a question. In the third photo that you posted, there are two out of focus blades of grass on the left of the photo. What is the best way to get rid of them in photoshop? (not stating that you need to, but I would like to know for my own photos).

    I want to get rid of them too.. I was going to crop the photo making it a 8x10 size rather then a 8x12.. making the out of focus parts less noticable and more to the side (just select the marquee tool and on the tool bar set style to 'Fixed Aspect Ratio'.. and set w=5 and h=4 (ie 8x10, 8x12 is 3x2)), but it lacked punch of the full size shot and changed the focus from the whole shot just down to the tree.

    Another way would be to use the Clone Stamp tool.. but it would take a bloody long time and look shit..

    I try not to 'perfect' the photo, I like a larger range of focus and out of focus spots, ie the long grass, It reminds me of how It looked when I was crawlling through it.:)

    In my photos I have been using the clone stamp tool in conjunction with the patch tool to do it, but on a photo of only 3.2mp it takes about 20 min with it zoomed right in to get it done. The end result looks not quite right, and so I usually go back to the original. Man maybe I should just have taken more care when I was shooting the photo.

    I understand. Sometimes you don't have the time to stop, check the photo and try again, esp when your with friends that arnt into photography.

    I used the clone tool, on that land pic.. didnt work to bad -

    Actually That look quite good, and would probably be good up to A4 size.

    I know what you mean about not being able to stop long, but if that is the case then it might be time to start educating them on the joys of photography (or force feeding them as the need arrizes). Then again there are good reasons why you see many solo photographers.

    There are so many things to learn about photoshop and post processing. It seems that this hobby I took up to get me out from infront of my computer, is keeping me there just as long as before.
