Went to the Toronto Zoo today, and managed to snap some cool pics. I'm going to upload them all to Flickr tomorrow, after I recover from the insane heat, but here is a sample to make do in the meantime. Not a crop.
Reminds me of my mother in-law
@houlty - quality wed photos. The one in front of the window is great. You use flash for the indoors and car shot?
thanks, just the onboard flash. to be honest, i used my cheapest lens (nikkor 18-200mm) and didnt take my sb600 flash because there was a good chance it would get knocked and banged as the day went on, what with all the festivities and alcohol consumption...
also, love the ir effect, it gives a nice twist to the regular approach.

Pretty good images from the onboard flash I must say. I'm guessing you were shooting "P" then? Usually the best way to use the onbaord for me anyway. I took a number of images of my mates wedding in July with a SB800 for the indoor shots (+1EV with omnibounce diffuser blasted off of the roof or whatever surface would suffice) looks no bad but dont get in the way of the flash - BLIND! Theyre on my flickr if your at all interested.
Cheers for the comment on the IR stuff - I am just really learning the best way to shoot in IR, just wish this crap weather would move on so I can get out in the sunshine and get some more shots in - I'm wanting to photo the forth rail bridge in IR just to see the effect - other red coloured objects I have photod in IR recently have almost dissapeared - how interesting it would be to see only the white scaffolding floating in the sky where the bridge once was lol.
Anyways, indoor butterfly shot:
Ferguson Farmstead Beta 1
Check out the full size super high detailed house on flickr. It's 4565 x 4459.
I still need to add to the right to make this into a landscape shot.
The house itself is made out of of around 9 images, so be sure to check out the original size :) Each of the 9 images is made up of 7 layered bracketed images, so the house alone is 63 photos.
The pictures I took of the right hand side of the image didn't turn out. I'm going to find a way to blend in a different field on the right, if possible.I think the grass is a bit too green, and I'm going to try and make the image wider, since it's almost a square right now. Also, there's some minor distortions and badly blended images around the house that I'm going to tweak.
Not to be rude, because this isn't personal and I'm not in general a fan of heavy image processing or in tonemapping, but isn't 63 photos a bit excessive? I can't really see anything that couldn't have been achieved with just the one photo and a bit of judicious photoshop. It's a nice composition nonetheless :)
HDR max is 5 images. Anything over that is overkill. I can usually get the same image out of 3 bracketed images as 5. So this should really have only been 21 images ;)
Been a LONG time =/ Nothing amazing, just boredom:
Haha sorry I should clarify, because of the differences of lighting in the scene I took that many to give me options for exposure. I was then able to pick 3 or at max 5 for each image to achieve the desired effect for that section. Your right, anything over that is stupid. It's still WIP so I need to refine it. One of the reasons 1 photo wouldn't have sufficed is that I wanted to have a high resolution house, and my camera is only 8mp. I did the house, grass and sky individually in processing so I could get the vibrant sky, and have the other parts of the scene properly exposed. So its a bunch of images tonemapped into tiff files which are then made into 3 seperate panorama pieces that get blended in photoshop. It's probably overkill but it's helped me learn a bunch about all 3 programs.
Your photos are underexposed.
That's one cute kitten :laugh:
Experimenting with Bokeh and HDR blending
"Don't drown me, bro!"
Nice shot. :p
It looks more like, hands off my bacon. :p
^ I see a face. lol. Look, hands are the eyes, and the waves is a mustache. lol.

I like that. You say you just got your camera - were you shooting on P or are you braving it up to M? No shame in P, I use it every now and again (especially for from the hip shots of people who don't know I;m shooting them lol)
Anyway, couple more IR but converted to B&W - wasnt digging the flase colour on these ones.
horizon slighty up on the right on this one.
I might take up true colour photography again...some time in the near future lol
yes its on p, used auto at first, so i am making progress lol
