  3. Dead Animal

    I still have yet to upload my gory shots of the deer killed by a mountain lion. To offer for sale photographs that repulse and nauseate me personally seems to require a level of detachment that I don't have at the moment. If I thought there was some real money in it, of course, these qualms would go right out the window.
  4. Lightroom, complete Basic Panel workflow

    One aspect of using the preset dehaze from Prolost is that, unless I was doing something wrong, it needs to be the last thing before exporting the image. Like the CC version, it tends to darken the image slightly. It's similar to having to estimate dry-down in black and white printing. With the CC version you can adjust the dehaze using its slider and then go back and lighten the image as needed. I could be just as happy and perhaps happier with an earlier version of Photoshop, but I keep paying Adobe their EUR 11,89 per month because of this feature in Lightroom.

  7. Dead Animal

    Thanks for this thread. I've got some recent gory shots of a deer killed by a mountain lion (puma, cougar), debated uploading and then didn't. Guess I'll go ahead and put them up.

  9. Lightroom, complete Basic Panel workflow

    I used the Prolost presets with Lightroom 6 prior to opting into the CC version because of Photoshop. They work not as well as the slider but well enough. That is, they're less convenient to use but the results are good.

  11. Cheers Maybe a winery will buy it and you'll get your just deserts.
  12. Was the image from last year used in the context of a piece on global warming? This one was.
  13. color cast

    The Kodak neutral gray cards come in a couple of sizes, the smaller of which easily fits into a camera bag or large pocket. Take a reference shot with that for use with a gray-balance eye dropper. Some software such as Photoshop allow you to save the curve as a preset to apply to other images shot under the same lighting. If you have thumbnails opened with others, such as fish on ice for example, do yours look red/magenta by comparison? P.S., bear in mind that a fish market will likely have fluorescent lighting with very low CRI and in that circumstance no amount of global correction will ever fully correct the color cast. Gray balancing will get you pretty close, though.
  14. You're welcome and it's difficult to say. GEO isn't very good about indicating publication dates or multiple uses. They only say the image came from Alamy via Mauritius.
