Re: To correct or not to correct? That is the question.

I'd be happy to hear the steps others take to correct blow-outs. 1) Try very hard to get it close in camera and avoid blown highlights. I'd rather have too dark and recover from that vs blown highlights. :lol: 2) Then camera raw corrections -- even on jpg if a raw file is not available. 3) Finally,...

Re: To correct or not to correct? That is the question.

Personally I only "fix" white spots that are large. Small dots of white are acceptable, IMO in art photos. However, in the world of stock photography (I recall), absolute white to 3 points above and absolute black to three points lighter are not acceptable. You'd have to do a "choose ...

Re: Changes as it happened .. tales from the QM deck

I've been spammed twice in the last week or so, I just ignore them because that's the way some people make a living, dog save them. As for contests, I try to enter as many as I can, as often as I can, because it's fun. I get really aggravated when entries that are NOT GOOD win. ;) ha ha ha But I gue...

Re: Comment thread - 30 Day September Challenge 2019

Didn't read properly - I can't do long exposures with my camera, so I'm just choosing the one I like best from the 30 days and doing a more careful digital darkroom job on it.

NinaP and KrysGeo - yes, a space heater. Thanks ... I was up early, not freezing cold for the first time in a few weeks, and saw the lines. :) I'm afraid by this point I'm getting just a bit lazy, it's not as sharply focused as I'd like, so I fudged with filters. Underdog - love the spooky past-era ...

Re: Comment thread - 30 Day September Challenge 2019

Thanks for the comments, KrysGeo! Late in the day for me - being we're International, EssjayNZ is about to begin round 28 and I finally got my 27 done. :)

Mrs.H, I don't understand the question about a wrap-up - meaning in the regular contest slots here or still in commentary on the same thread or ?
