A very literal representation of Diagonals Ian. Very striking and lovely even lighting. Would fit nicely into last months abstract project too.February 8, 2013 at 5:02 pm #3098
Field at Weston and will be like this again in a few months.February 8, 2013 at 8:49 pm #3101
Three from today’s outing (the middle one a bit more subtle re the diagonal composition)…

All very good indeed–top one is a cracker.February 8, 2013 at 9:25 pm #3105
Really love the green fields and Iris Ken. Lovely colours.
I agree with Ken, Ian, the top one is a cracker. Lovely conversion. Is that the silver efex pro? What does the LR 4.3 refer too?February 8, 2013 at 10:02 pm #3107
LR4.3 = Lightroom Version 4.3
Yes, all the BW conversion were done with Silver Efex Pro2. It’s just terrific – wouldn’t bother with anything else. 🙂February 8, 2013 at 11:47 pm #3111
I now have version one and do find it excellent. The control points are very useful although I am sure I have lots to learn about using it yet. Thank God for Youtube! 🙂 The Fields in Winter is also a lovely image. Great detail. Almost a silvery effect to the conversion.February 9, 2013 at 2:17 pm #3116
Entirely convinced re Silver Efex Ian- nearest to the real thing without doubt. Was going to ask if you mind if I tracked you with this–then saw the price–ouch! worth it for the quality but two dogs to feed. Yes it is good. Posting another here that did well over 30 years ago—b/w and modified in Topaz a bit–not quite a diaganol.February 10, 2013 at 9:51 pm #3145

Just in case it’s not obvious that this is a “diagonal” image, here’s the underlying ‘diagonal-and-reciprocal’ geometry:February 13, 2013 at 11:47 am #3158

Mac I am going to put some images on the forum, I will get some done in the next day or two.February 13, 2013 at 4:22 pm #3163
Very well spotted with Missed Ian. Stunning conversion again on the Mono. You were very lucky with the cloudy dramatic sky without which the image would not be so dramatic.February 13, 2013 at 5:15 pm #3164
Thanks very much, D.
You were very lucky with the cloudy dramatic sky without which the image would not be so dramatic.
Lucky?! You should see the original colour photo – light as flat as a pancake, and a uniform grey sky that’d make you weep. But all that detail is in there, hiding in the RAW file: it just needed a bit of judicious development with Silver Efex Pro to bring it all through.
As Ansel might have said, had he lived to see digital, “The RAW file is the score; the photo on your monitor is the performance!”
(Actually, if you’re interested in seeing the original of ‘Lines and angles’ I’ve attached it to this post.)

Thanks for posting the original of lines and diagonals Ian. If anything it will hopefully make Meg think twice before reaching for the delete button so quickly …. the woman’s a menace! 😉 It is amazing what detail can be brought out with the right program and knowledge of how to use it. The two versions are remarkably different.February 13, 2013 at 9:05 pm #3169
Missed , less says more, very original, excellent and well set up.
