You're afraid of spiders? Well - I assume it's easy not to be afraid of spiders in Germany, where like 0 spiders could be a potential danger to your health.

In Australia on the the other hand... I'd be afraid of spiders in Australia.

I think photoshopped images should be banned from this thread.

Otherwise, I think I'll be contributing to this thread soon!

Whats wrong with photoshopping?

editing is an integral part of photography and has been going on since its inception

kayc despite your photos being fairly run of the mill nature shots you have a decent eye for editing, the alternate colour schemes make these photos more interesting than they would otherwise be

Actually I sold a few pictures to a stock photo company already - you usually get around 350€ ($500) per picture. It's quite nice.

Not for Windows or Microsoft, though - but local print media usually.

Well, technically, photoshop isn't part of photography. It's some other kind of artistic input because you're adding something into it that wasn't there otherwise. It's like colouring in an old black and white picture... that wouldn't be part of photography, that'd be photography and art combined.

imo.

The editing process of digital photos compared to tradition photos is quite different but is definitely relevant.
I always adjust the levels and colors of my photos afterwards in photoshop.
You could do the same in a dark room using the right chemicals and other tools.
It's just an easier process now, but I'd have to agree that some people do over-edit in their post-work.

Hey Kayc, what kind of camera and lenses are you working with?


At the moment still my Sony Alpha 450 with a Sigma 70-300mm F4,0-5,6 DG Makro lens most of the time - also using a circular polarising filter and two Kenko extension tubes every now and then.

Well the Sigma is doing and excellent job with those macro shots. Pretty good bokeh, especially in the 6th photo. Nice vivid colors overall too.

Maybe I'l post some of my latest stuff later today if I get the time.


I am going to buy a Sigma 105 mm F2,8 EX DG Makro lens soon - Sigma is pretty reliable (3 years warranty) and cheap ($420). Solid as shit.

I'd love you to post some of your stuff :daydream:
