To batalay: What the eye sees

Hi, Bulent -

There is no question that the eye sees things differently, and in many ways more efficiently. As I recall, film has a range of about 4 orders of magnitude (in terms of light capture),...

To PixelTerror: Feet sort of there

Hi, Jean Yves -

I thought about cropping the image to leave off the feet altogether, but there were other elements close to the edge that I wanted, like the wheels on the wagon. And it was a grab...

To batalay: Just a kit lens

Hi, Bulent -

Funny thing about that lens - it was a kit lens for the Nikon D70. Every time I buy a new body, I just move that lens up. It's still the best overall lens I've got, and I'm sorry...

The only thing I think is worse than using flash...

The only thing I think is worse than using flash while shooting through an airplane window is shooting flash at a sports event. Every time I see a night game on TV, there are all these winking lights...

To batalay: Snow is warm?

Merhaba, Bulent -

Glad you liked the shot - and the green bit was intentional.

How are you coping with 30 inches or whatever? And, the VA GOP notwithstanding, this is a consequence of global...

To sayeed_rahman: Restrictions Enforced

Hi, Sayeed -

Well, this shot was taken through the window of our bus- which probably explains the light, as it was midday - and just after I took it, the guide said we had to put away our cameras...

To sayeed_rahman: RAW problem?

Hi, Sayeed -

Why do you find it hard to work with RAW? I prefer it because it is the original image as captured by the camera, so it contains all of the information that the camera collected. If I...

Re: To Wandering_Dan: Montana

That's the mountain part of Montana; I was thinking more of the Great Plains in the eastern part. I was there in 1979 - in Febuary, no less! - for a solar eclipse.

Beartooth Highway is one of the...

To jwmunro: Leaning buildings are the point

Hi, John -

I thought about the tilt, but decided I liked it. It seemed to fit the spirit of the occasion. Besides,the "Columbus" sign is level, so the tilt may be in the eye (or liver) of the...

To plimrn: Alcatraz is in SF Harbor

Hi, Pat -

I just measured it on a city map; Alcatraz is 2.6 miles from the tip of the pier. It's possible to hear the sounds of the City from the island. In fact, that was considered part of the...

To feather: Noise sharpening

Hi, Kath -

You have a point. The problem is, Camera RAW (at least my version) doesn't have selective sharpening; it's all or nothing. And I consider its sharpening function to be better (for RAW,...

To feather: Reduction from 3000 ppi to 72 ppi

Hi, Kath -

The scan was done by ScanCafe, which generally did a decent job. But it's still a scan. Also, they produce a file at 3000 ppi, and for web purposes I reduced that to 72 ppi, which may...

To xuaxo: Norhtern hemisphere

Crater Lake in Oregon is about 46 degrees into the northern hemisphere, but it sits in the middle of the Cascades, so it gets all the accumulated moisture built up over the Pacific Ocean, plus it's...

To jimkil: Maps can be misleading

Hi, Jim -

In Russia, I've only been to Moscow and St. Petersburg, but because Russia is the largest country in the world, it looks more impressive than it is. Same thing with Canada - just for...

Re: To Wandering_Dan: Mill Creek Cascade

Hi, JOhn -

Does the snow make feel like you're back in Colorado? ;-)

We did not get snow in the City, even though I read that in the East Bay the snow level got down to 250' - which is really...

To Waylim: It depends where you are in the time zone

Hi, Way -

San Francisco is fairly close to the western edge of the Pacific time zone, so sunrise will be later than, say, in LA. Also, we're close to the winter solstice now.

About 10 minutes...

To batalay: ISO 200

Hi,Bulent -

If you can see the taillights on Market Street - 2 miles away - then the resolution can't be that bad. I was using ISO 200. I couldn't use AF, of course, so I set the lens manually to...

To jwmunro: Fading Light

Hi, John -

By the time I saw this vine, the sun was already on the horizon and the lower part of the vine was in shadow; I wish I'd had full light on it, too. I tried several ideas in Photoshop,...

I have read the tribute you wrote - and it is well-written, compelling the reader into the story. One anecdote that particularly caught my eye was about how the soldiers would take a...

Re: To jwmunro: Adobe RGB vs sRGB

Sorry, no note came through. This is the first I've heard from you.

We had a great time meeting you as well. And I'm glad you liked Tank Hill. I've gone up there before dawn for some...

To jwmunro: Adobe RGB vs sRGB

Hi, John -

I believe you are correct; sRGB is preferred for internet viewing generally (not just TE). I used to convert TE posts, but haven't done so lately; lazy, I guess. Or more likely, I'd...

Re: To ikeharel: It's "Wandering," not "Wondering"

TE has many purposes. It is not, as you seem to suggest, limited to travel shots to show people what another part of the planet looks like. It is also a platform for us to show each other what we...

To ikeharel: It's "Wandering," not "Wondering"

Shalom, Ike -

First off, it's "Wandering Dan" meaning that I like to travel a lot.

But for all my travels, home base is San Francisco, and I see this bridge from my gym window every day....
