we had to have just missed ya.
I am far from a photographer (and I mean far) but I think I would photoshop out the lighthouse reflection in the water. It draws my eyes away for some reason.
(I mean no disrespect, I think that's a badass photograph and totally bow down to your skills )
A shit ton of photos I'm seeing of these vibrant colours are definitely heavily edited
I didn't even notice it until you said it
Like I said, what the hell do I know about photography? Lol
Thanks. Not going to clone out the reflection. I could have made the shot entirely about the Aurora, but that's just part of the equation. Foreground first, sky second.
Cool. Well, a 36mp CMOS sensor set to iso800 is actually quite receptive to the faint light and colours of the Aurora. I could see the bands of light visually, but not the colours.
So do you think that one will make your site for purchase?
that's pretty normal though, for any pics
So what you're saying is that your better camera makes you a better photographer? And if I bought the same camera as you, I'd be as good a photographer as you?
someone took offence to that
Takes a hell of a lot more than a good camera to be a good photographer.
Realistically, a good photographer can use any camera. Its all about composure and getting what you want out of the scene. A good camera just allows you to get more out of the photograph than a lesser camera.
I know people that have DSLR cameras and still use Auto mode. You might as well have a fancy point and shoot if you're only going to use auto mode. You need to know about Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO to get the most out of your camera.
404 sarcasm not found
I know he's being sarcastic but this is one of my pet peeves. So many people think they can be good photographers just because they have a DSLR camera. I dabble in it but i know i'm nowhere near as good as Shaun or Mosher. I'm sure it gets annoying to them too considering how much time they devote to it.
I edit everything. RAW format is flat.
Something like that, yes.
It used to annoy me. I just don't pay attention anymore... too busy with ideas spinning around in my head.
We need a sarcasm font.
I KNOW YOU'RE KIDDING. lol
I didn't mean to imply it was a bad thing
I thought it was making a dick statement, came back hours later and realized I pulled the trigger incorrectly. I very rarely -rep (something like 1400+ to 200- or whatever) but because I appreciate artists and skilled people I took offense to it. I apologize and have since reversed my rep from negative to positive.
lololol lost it
