Park Bench

Suby In the House.

Another Shot from our honeymoon (hold on to your hats people, took almost a thousand shots, & yes all in RAW, soo more to come) , yes we took the 20D with us, could not leave the Mistress at home could I?

I decided to step away from my comfort zone during this period and shoot more landscape and animal shots. Hope you enjoy the journey, not to worry, I will interject other stuff once in a while

Came across this scene during one of our sight seeing trips and thought it looked rather lovely. Well here I am sharing the lovely scene with my fellow bloggers :) I forget the name of the area, but fear not, I think I took a shot of the signpost so will post up the name later :) Funny place this bench was, on the edge of a hill, wouldn't want to fall of my seat :) Long roll down

 What do you think?

Still do not have access to the internet and I have been lazy in editing any shots in the last few days. I have also only one old shot in my blog queue left, too lazy to go to my either my sisters or friend's houses to use the internet. Fingers crossed folks, maybe by the time I get home today, BT would have fixed the problem with my phone line.

P.s

Yes steve , I know the ISO is ridiculously high. BIG MISTAKE on my part :)

This is a lovely landscape. I love the deep shades of green. The sky is lovely too. My eyes are very tired tonight, and I have a little headache, but it looks like it might be a little over sharpened.

Is that a stone wall in the background? I do hope you got some shots of that. smile
Suby & Sinem: Awww Laurie, I hope you get well soon and have had a good nights rest. Yep it is a stone wall. Suby

mmmm ... welcome to the f5 club! Not only high ISO but 1/500s at f5!! What were you thinking.;-} Arrgghh I am channeling Lord Vader!
Landscapes like this need DOF and you had plenty of stops at your fingertips - you could have selected f11 or f16 and had bags of DOF.
Yep, and where is your tripod? 3 legs better than 2.
But it is a nice piccy for all that.
idleye
Suby & Sinem: Idleye, apart from the ISO which I missed I actually decided to fool around with the shutter speed and Apperture on this shoot just to see how the images would turn out, told you I was stepping out of my comfirt zone. For me, the only way to learn is to try things and to see how they turn out. So you will see more expirements from the Subster over the coming week. Please please DO NOT hold back with your comments. I REALLY do like knowing what other photographers or prosumers or anyone else thinks of my images.
As to your query of where was my tripod.... 3 hours into the start of my honeymoon, after thinking "dang I left something at home" but could not remember what exactly it was, it finally hit me DUMB SUBY, YOUR FORGOT THE TRIPOD. Was soo angry with myself smile Thanks for the comments bro. Suby

Mr. Substa, too dark my man. Maybe its that 5000TH OF A SECOND! I normally use 800 myself, though I try to use 400 and 200 as MUCH as possible. I find that higher ISO give more detail which can be seen as noise, but idk...I can either leave it in the photot or take it out in NeatImage, so I leave it.

But yeah, I'm not feelin' this one bro sad. yesterday's was wonderful.
Suby & Sinem: The Reza man, you should know the bro by now, me like dark smile It wasn't actually the 5000th of a sec, it was the subster further darkening the shot. You know what even though the ISO800 was a mistake, I think I am going to take more images with these ISO. I normally do not go higher than ISO300 (never feel the need to). You are not feeling this one . Nooooooooooooooo, Suby must deliever a stonker tomorrow.. But wait no phone line at home.. DARN!! I may miss the 1st themed day on Shutterchance today, I really might not have the energy to start going out about 22:00hrs today to use friends or families internet. (I have to 1st take the picture and edit it innit) Will try but not promising anything folks.

It looks really under. You've pointed out the ISO. But I'll have to agree with Idleye about the aperture. There's really no reason not to use something >F8. It only takes a few seconds to change settings before you shoot and a few seconds after to check the histogram. I think digital PP spoils people into not getting it right in the camera. Sorry if you feel offended by my comments, feel free to delete them. smile
Suby & Sinem: Denoshe bro, no need to apologise. Thats what I love about Shutterchance, put up an image that does not tecnically meet the muster and your bum is grass. No excuses from the Subster on this one apart from the fact I forgot my ISO was soo high, I decided to take the shots on this day with the shutterspeed and apperture you see above, was expirementing to see how they would turn out. I missed checking my ISO so that was stupid of me smile Would never dream of deleting your comments, why should I? You just constructively cticing my work (A lot nicer than I would have I might add) smile
Suby
nice landscape shot...i like the straight line of the path across the image....also a beautiful colors from skysmile)
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Bro, I really am glad you like smile

Hey Subster. I'm on my Mother-in-law's crappy computer and the screen sucks, so I'm gonna come by tomorrow and have a look at your photos. I don't want to make a comment when I know I'm not seeing an accurate representation of your photos.

I just came by to tell you that I have finally posted today's photo on my site. Feel free to drop by.
Suby & Sinem: Okay, will wait on you to get to a "normal" monitor, looking forward to your comments on this shot. Suby

Only one thousand shots?? What else could you have been doing?

I hope you shared the camera with your beautiful bride. From the looks of this shot, you had some lovely weather to go shooting.
Suby & Sinem: Actually its more like 1100 shots, yep we definitely shared the camera. She took some stonking shots and I aim to make sure she posts more shots here. Yep we did have some lovely weather. Thanks for visiting as always

lol at micki. Nice shot but dark.
Suby & Sinem: Yep I know. The original is just right but you know what? It did not have that Suby mark. I know I tend to make my shots slightly darker, but that is very intentional. It is what appeals to me really and since I am a stubborn guy I like doing only what brings a smile to my face. I sometimes tend to post up shots that tick all the boxes but for the next few days I have decided to move away from my comfort zone and experiment a little. So here is one of my licckle experiments. I am glad you find the shot "nice" smile

I like the shot, a lot, but it's a bit dark. On my laptop anyway. I wish I could see more detail in the background.
Glad your back bro.....
Suby & Sinem: Glad to be back bro. The Subetr is almost back to make newbies (and hopefully oldies) weep/cry ooopps sorry I meant to write constructive feedback there smile
The shot IS slightly dark, that was intentional on my part. smile

you know I've really learnt a lot from this post esp comments from dudes above. My first impression what that it was too dark. I was going to blame suby's monitor for that (all his photo's are dark ;-)) but then the above discussion re apertures, and shutterspeeds. I've learnt something new today..
Suby & Sinem: Thants what Shutterchance is great for. You actually learn something. So you see THIS IS THE BLOG TO BELONG TO smile

We are all learning. I have learnt a whole lot from Shutterchance members.(aahhh remember the days when we only had 4-7 people in here) Now we have sucha diverse gang in here you really are forced to leearn once you join. GOOD. Suby

This photo appears underexposed. I think you mailed this one in Suby. The composition is fine, there are some parrallel lines that are interesting. The DoF is suspect and the exposure makes it appear that you took this photo while in a hurry.
