Re: Is the E3 able to produce the same shot?

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the all the advice. I love this shot, I can't tell you why though, I just think it really stands out in my eyes as superb.

I'm gonna give sommat similiar to go tomorrow AM. I mentioned the pic was taken at 4.39pm, it was infact AM, sorry

So armed with my E3, 12-60 and 10 - 20 I aim to get up tomorrow at 3am and drive into glasgow and see what I can do. I've not got any ND filters but for my 12 - 60 I have a IR so I'll give that a go and see what effect it will produce.

The settings I'm thinking are ISO 200(I've heard this is the best ISO to use on the E3) around F11 or smaller as I want everything to be as sharp as this shot. Dark frame subtraction, mirror lockup all on my tripod and shutter released on a timer?

Cheers
Garrie.

P.s Thanks for the comments on my Tonemapping, I've not posted much recently because to be honest I've not really been out much in the last year, I'm not really liking my E3 as much as my old E510 and its kinda knocked my confidence a little

That's something I've never tried to dabble in, where can I find info about doing tonemapping? I seem to recall Photomatix does it, can it be done in LR3 or CS3?

Thanks I started off with Pete Carrs guides, he is the true expert in my eyes

I use Photomatix pro stand alone however I think there is a plugin for LR and PS, John (musicman) it think would know best as I think this is what he uses.

Cheers

Hey Garrie

Yep - with Photopatix Pro you get the Lightroom plug in, which allows you to select your source images (many or a single image) and create an HDR/Tonemapped image within your Lightroom work flow. It then creates the resulting HDR image back into your Lightroom catalogue for you - so no need to do anything outside of Lightroom. Of course, the Photomatix controls are presented to you as though you are using the app (not Lightroom), but when you save the image, everything returns back to Lightroom.

Good luck with your attempt at that shot Garrie. Is there anyone living close to you who can loan you an ND110 filter...? it is the use of this filter (and some very good post processing) that has allowed your mate to create such a nice image. You would stand a far greater chance of creating a similar image with the use of a 10 stopper, than without. You're not going to get that long a shutter speed I don't think - even at that time of the morning. Well... maybe...??

Good luck.

John

Having looked closely at the alignment and some of my old film and very much inferior shots from the Gatehead Millenium Bridge This is thrre shots from slightly different positions and not a panorama style shot. It is brilliantly aligned as well as processed.
