At the moment the prevailing weather pattern in Carinthia is high fog, covered by even higher clouds. Yesterday I was unable to locate any sunny destination that could have been reached within less than two hours. I tried my luck in Gailtal, in the valley along the southern border between Carinthia and Italy. They had … Continue reading 841 – Au Fond du Temple Saint
This is the blog entry for December 31, but when you read this, it has been New Year all over the world, thus let me begin with a heartfelt Happy New Year to you all! This blog is now well in its third year and still running daily, with the images having been shot that … Continue reading 810 – Higher Ground
Well, I shouldn’t promise things that I can’t deliver. These are images of yesterday afternoon, and when I posted the lens index, I had all of them already taken but none post-processed. Doing so took me until mid-afternoon today, but I guess it was worth not rushing things, and there are even lessons to be … Continue reading 792 – Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow
When I posted “771 – And Winter Came” a week ago, I was met with mild mockery. I admit, there was not much snow to be seen 🙂 These two images are from Saturday, the first one from the morning. It had snowed from Friday afternoon all through the night, and when I went fetching … Continue reading 778 – My! My! Time Flies!
A bicycle? I must be back to Vienna 🙂 Over the last two weeks I have spent quite some time with DxO Lab’s new version 5.3 of DxO Optics Pro. When I began processing today’s image, taken at f1.4, 1/60s and ISO 3200, I found that the demo had expired and I was back to … Continue reading 759 – Try Some, Buy Some
In Saturday’s post we saw that DxO 5.3 performs fine on the noise front, but it won’t boost your D300 to ISO 25600. Well, at least it did not boost mine, I suppose it won’t do yours either 🙂 In all that pixel peeping we have completely ignored what other things DxO can do. Today’s … Continue reading 744 – The Cross
These are images of Thursday. I took some in the morning and then late in the evening. All images were converted with DxO 5.3, but with the exception of the last, none was shot at particularly high ISO values. Speaking of DxO, I’m just speeding through the documentation to get an impression of what a … Continue reading 741 – Just Another Day On Earth
OK, finally there’s one image of Wednesday, almost plainly out of DxO 5.3. It’s ISO 1600 from a Nikon D200 with Sigma 30/1.4, a combination that is supported by DxO for automatic lens correction. I think you won’t be able to tell from this resolution (even if you click on the image for the higher … Continue reading 740 – Tell Me You’ll Wait For Me
