Snapseed III

Snapseed III

Ok, the last one for the moment cooked by Snapseed. Did anyone notice that the last 3 posts were in the square format. Like I said, I use this more and more. Everything fits into place.

Snapseed II

Snapseed II

Another one that went through Snapseed. I think they've takena lot of functions from their other products and just put it into Snapseed. I really don't mind because it is small and simple to use.
Also taken with the LX5. It's not the smallest of cameras but it really was worth the money.

Snapseed

It may not as a surprise to a lot of you, but I've been a fan os Pasasonic cameras from the start with the LC1. I've had since then the L1 (one of the best cameras ever to be produced IMHO) and followed by the L10, which had the sharpest image of them all. Sadly the market didn't see it that way and both cameras quickly became out of fashion. Panasonic carries some of the blame here for pricing the L1 with the excellent PL 14-50 f2.8-3.5 lens. If you ever get a chance to pick one of these up, do it. The image quality is excellent.
I digress. This post is about a software  package called Snapseed by Nik. I've got it for the Windows platmorm but it is available for most platmorms. This image was fed through this piece of software and it is quite versatile. Lots of features and not a lot you can do wrong. Well worth the 15USD I paid for it. I'm beginning to like it a lot. But don't overcook your images.
The reason I started this post ranting on about Panasonic is because this image was taken with the Panasonic LX5 P&S camera. Again one of the best P&S cameras ever made. It really is in a class of it's own. It's so good that Panasonic haven't replaced it as of today but there are roumours of the LX7 coming out shortly. One reason I like it is that I can fit the EVF I use on the GF1 on it. Remember I need one of those. I just can't take pictures with the camera at arms length.

Horizontal Format

Horizontal Format

Take a look at yesterdays post. Look really hard at the image and then come back to this one and compare the two. Notice a semblence? It's actually the same place, just photographed differently. One vertical and one horizontal. What I'm trying to say here is that always, always photograph a scene from every angle and in as many formats as you can. This includes vertical, horizontal, try a 1:1 ratio or in 16:9 ratio. You will be amazed, I'm sure of it.

Made to be Photographed

Made to be Photographed

This range of hills (well big hills) were made to be photographed. Located about an hours drive north-east of Malaga, southern Spain, it's not a region readily travelled by tourists. Most are down on the coast in those hideous hotels, lounging in the sun during the day and hitting the bars at night. Don't get me wrong, if that's what pushes their buttons fine but me...I much prefer these places for their beauty and the quiet that I like on my holidays. Lets me photograph in peace as well.

Favourite Photo so far in 2012

Favourite Photo so far in 2012

I think this is my favourite photo so far in 2012. Everything just seemed to fit together for this one.
Even one of my walking colleagues managed to get into the image (top right if you didn't notice). Again taken with an E-P3 and my beloved mZD 14-150 lens. The contours, the light and the colours just made me stop in my tracks. This wasn't planned at all and it was getting near the end of our hike on this day. I was just knackered and was thinking of that bottle of beer waiting for me at the Finca. I was lucky to have spotted this one.

Nik SFX2

Nik SFX2

This is a monochrome conversion of the image posted yesterday. Using Nik SFX2 as a Photoshop plug-in, I still think it's the best on the market. I gives you precise control over all aspects of a conversion. I'm quite pleased with this conversion especially looking at the hill contours. Having said that, if you don't get the image correct in camera then your conversion will show that. A good exposure with good detail will go a long way during the monochrome conversion phase.

Andalusian Landscapes

Andalusian Landscapes

Taken with the E-P3 and mZD 14-150 lens half way up a mountain. I had just stopped for a beather and looked to my left. I just liked the way the mountainside broke the frame in half with the different coulours either side of the ridge. Many believe that the countryside in southern Spain is brown and arid, but after the winter months which do bring some rain, it turns green with an mazing display of different flowers.

Leica DG Summilux 25 f1.4

Last image for now from the 25 f1.4. Notice the bokeh here, quite nice I think.
That look I'm getting int his image is the "Ok, that's enough" look. I've come to know it quite well recently when I'm using my wife as a model because she's the only other person around. I tend to sneak a picture in once in a while when she's not expecting it. Problem is, she knows me too well.

Leica DG Summilux 25 f1.4

Leica DG Summilux 25 f1.4

I just had to take this image. When my better half bought these it really ticked me out. Well you can't miss her anyway. I'm astounded however about how many women come up to her to comment on the great shoes that she's wearing, and many asking where she bought them from. This must be a woman thing because I've never seen men do that.
Anyway, just look again how sharp this image is. I think this is going to get used quite a lot, together with the Olympus 45 f1.8 which is just as sharp. Two great partrait lenses which I will be showing a couple of post in the next few days.
