Same cathedral, different p-o-v.

2 photos were used for this picture and additional photoshopping after merging the two pix.

That is really nice, it's so crisp and vivid!

I don't have PS, I have Adobe Photo Deluxe. It's a scaled down version and works pretty well, but it doesn't have that "healer" tool. It does have something close to it so I can usually accomplish what I set out to do.

I only used F 8.0 for the pictures from this p-o-v but i used max. sharpness from the raw import and the colours are the result of hdr and additional layer merging

Default My Photo

Here's my photo. I love the way the beams of light project through the clouds. This was a photo that I took at Brighton, England. I went out for a walk one afternoon and walked by the beach and took some photos and this is one of them.

45 Seconds after your first picture there is one of the birds missing.

Did it join the other two you said weren't willing to pose for the camera or did you have something special for lunch today, br7??



BTW does your Olympus actually have a spot metering mode?

I took a look at the exif data of your picture and i stumbled across the selected metering mode: spot

With a spot metering mode you usually have the most center part of your finder for the metering only - all the rest is being ignored in terms of metering the light


so when would one usually pick spot metering as opposed to integral or multi/pattern metering?

let's start the other way around: with a balanced scene you would normally pick integral metering so that most of the visible area of your picture will be used for the light metering but this will only result in a decent exposure when dark and light spots are balanced in your picture.

should you, however, deal with a dark object in front of a light scene or a light object in front of a dark scene your main focus of attention - the face (into which the sun shines) of a person against the shadows - will not be metered correctly with integral metering (covering almost the entire picture for the metering) as light or dark parts dominate the picture.

in this case one would swap to spot metering in order to measure only the face and not the darker background for the exposure metering.

i found some words on metering modes at wikipedia

maybe it'll help shedding some more light on exposure metering.

i used spot metering or even multi spot with my old Canon T90 quite often because analog cameras and film material did not provide so many ways of correcting pictures like we now have in the digital era.
