  1. I would just like to say thank you to all who commented on a recent post of mine re luminence noise. Most of you saw colour noise which I was not seeing. So after looking via another screen there it was clear as day! So I ordered a calibrator and when it arrived and I duly attached it for use I then discovered my PC was not recognising my graphics card and therefore could not calibrate the screen, apparently it was not there although I was viewing images on something in front of me! Anyway, all too technical for me, so off for repair. The pricely sum of €20 later gave me a whole new viewing experience, thank goodness I had not sent the last batch of edited images! I have viewed them anew and am having to adjust them all, including spotting some dreaded CA not noticed before. None of this would of come to light so soon without your assistance, so thank you once again for all your help and comments. Wishing you all a Happy Christmas and very prosperous 2018
  2. Image identification

    Don't forget to put x in the keywords as well as cross, I notice there is only one with x! I am back over in UK Dec and May next year, will have to pop up the farm and take a few images

    You are welcome. I love cows and love to feed the calves with bottles. I live in a different country now, but have been known to cry when I leave the calves after a visit! (Because I know they will be gone next time I go!) Jenny (aka big softy!)

    I am fairly sure they are an aberdeen angus cross, my brother has them just need to find the x bit. These have quite long bodies
  5. yes I think I will do that. There is a change in weather coming so will be ideal (for photographs, not for me, haha) I have stopped all editing now and waiting for the delivery of a Spyder calibrater, for some strange reason my PC running windows 7 will not allow me to calibrate via Windows calibration on my HP monitor, but Spyder will be better anyway. I am seriously doubting what I am currently seeing now.
  6. add the keywords when you are editing, then they will go on automatically. then when they have passed, decide which ones you want as supertags
  7. Thanks again to everyone for your comments. The example images I posted were completely unedited. One thing that has become obvious is that my moniter needs calibrating again. It is something I have not done for a while and now from comments and seeing my examples on the ipad I realise it needs doing. The noise in the sky has no colour on my monitor but does on my ipad and others see it too. Its good to know also, that most of you don't think the noise as big an issue as I do. I will do the lens testing, calibrate the monitor and take it from there. I wonder also if having the onset of catarracts is not helping? But hey, thats another issue all together. Thank you again everyone who took the time. Wishing you all a good week ahead Jenny
  8. Wow, Wim thank you so much. I will certainly carry out the test. Very detailed. Thanks. And yes blockiness is exactly how I would describe the sky and had assumed luminence noise, mainly because it or similar appears on the water too. I will get the test done and see the results. amazing help and thank you sincerely for taking the time. Jenny
  9. I will have to check out if its on there thanks.
  10. Thanks for taking a look Betty. Its luminence noise as opposed to noise as in from high iso, not sure if you mean that? But i am having to reduce by around 40, I have used the gradient tool on other images before, but just feel it should not be necessary all the time . I think as John has said it may be the harsh light from the time of day possibly? Ha yes, horizons, hehe, fix those when I edit. I did actually wonder if my focus problems as sometimes due to a heavy handbag over that left shoulder (!) but went with a backpack deliberately today to see, but doesn't seem to have made much difference thanks for looking, appreciate it. Jenny
  11. Thanks again John, will have a good look at that this week. I did wonder if the lighting may be part of the cause of the luminence noise, I will have to get out a bit earlier in the day. Cheers
  12. Thanks John, I will have a look at that

  14. Can I upload raw to dropbox? Or does it need to be the dng?
  15. Hi Wim yes always shot in Raw then convert via dng converter as I use Lightroom 4 which doesn't take the raw files. The camera was purchased new by me a couple of months ago. I played around with some product work indoors the other day and focus was fine for that and don't recall seeing luminence noise (although only looked at them quickly as was testing lighting). I will have a look at the instructions for uploading via Dropbox that was out here the other day and will out one on. Thanks
