Welcome to the Neowin photo gallery (now yearly, as voted by Neowin members!)! Here you can post your pictures and discuss your photography techniques.

Please be mindful of our members on dial-up and try to keep the dimensions of the pics and the size of the files to a respectable size for 1024 x 768 viewers. Please refrain from quoting images in your replies.

I will also ask that you link to images on your own space, as much as possible.

Try to put more details from your camera settings (EXIF) and also talk about what you have done with photoshop (or similar).
There are a lot of photographers here that like your editing skills and would like to learn more.

The previous thread can be found here.

Posting your photos is made easier thanks to a member contribution! Argote created a Flickr to IPB webapp, thanks! [direct link to app]

Enjoy!

Nothing fancy, just wanted to capture how the intense moisture ruins anything not galvanized as is the case with this salter:

All 3 are 5 bracketed shots merged in Photomatix to give an HDR output. I use HDR to improve the details of an image, not give that waxy look you often see posted online. I believe some blackness should be left in scenes like this because black gives a nice contrast and brings focus to colours and shades.

It's impossible to shoot such a scene in one exposure and getting enhanced detail and getting that colour vividness that your eye sees on location but the camera won't pick up in a single shot.

A Canon 40D with 10-22mm lens was used.

Amazing images guys :)

I hope to be active on this sub-forum this year after upgrading my bridge to a Canon 550D.
I've already taken lots of shots, however nothing worthy enough compared to the above.

EXII is a nice flash, a worthy upgrade to my EXI :D But I remember when flashes were cheap! I paid £150 brand new for mine!

Frack all... Wish I had bought one back then. This EXII set me back $320 (£200), and that was on sale (reg. $390).


And one more shot. Can't seem to fall asleep tonight, so what better way to pass the time than working on some old photos:

Nice picture but I can't help but constantly wonder why BMW lost the plot with their newer cars, they all look the same now, the M series aren't as distinguishable from a non M powered "Sport" variant and the lines have become soft compared to the muscular dimensions of older models :(

Mercedes on the other hand has gone the other way round and their newest cars look amazing in all guises!
