Dead Marri tree track…

Fallen Marri track

 

This along with yesterdays post was taken on the Sigma DP2 Merrill, the image of this dead Marri that this little brick produces when inspected closely have a painterly quality about them sometimes a little like the M9 especially at low light levels. Ten minutes later it was dark night comes quickly in the forest, With regards to the post processing with the Foveon images, very little has to be adjusted compared with my normal practice in ACR. Another interesting characteristic of this Foveon sensor is that it produces no and I mean no fringing whatsoever this is something of a revelation as virtually every camera I have ever used produces fringing at some point with one lens or other, this DP2 is unique! Here is a 100% crop of the dead red gum. As one does, I came back and had another look at the above image only to find that it was not how imagined it looked after I did the post processing. I believe I forgot to convert the colour setting to sRGB. In previous versions of Photoshop this did not seem to be as big a problem as it is with this current version CS6… In this version of the image the painterly quality is more apparent. To me the above photograph has a Pre Raphaelite landscape look to it even though the overall colouring is a good representation of the actual scene… I don’t print my photos any where near as much as I should. Printing ones photographs as reflective images is without doubt the best way to really see ones photos as opposed to looking at them as illuminated images onscreen.
