  1. Speaking of YouTube, this video has some great tips on using TCs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fm_5VJdZmNU&t=385s
  2. Hand making mulberry paper in Taunggyi, the capital of Shan State, Myanmar. Presentation or newsletter
  3. No joke. The sensor is scaled down for the announcement and all applications (cars, phones etc). Scaled up for cameras would be around 85mp. Still early days, wait for it.
  4. Not all bad news from Nikon. Technology marches on😵 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rts9WROtvyw
  5. Ahh, good point. I hardly ever read the fine print on contracts. Might be a good time to start.
  6. I wouldn't have any issues using the Adobe skies if suitable for the subject. It doesn't seem to me that Adobe is the kind of company that would need to download sky photos and remove the watermark. I'm also pretty sure that they have lot of their own skies (and lawyers) to make this OK for usage.
  7. I can't think of a more beautiful and interesting part of the world to live in, although I hear they have better autumns out there. All the best in Ottawa and come back for a visit sometime.
  8. It was one of my own skies. The Adobe ones were too dramatic and I needed something more realistic. I am going to start shooting more skies soon to add to that folder. Thankyou for the compliment🙂 This YouTube guy does a great advanced tutorial. It helped me quite a bit. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdjsUlOxvrU&t=13s
  9. I was using sky replacement before, (the old fashioned way) but this is a lot quicker.
  10. It's been a while since I had a weekend sale . Personal use, Lake Louise. BTW, this is the first time I used the PS sky replacement tool. The original sky was a flat grey so I used something more dramatic instead.
  11. MandyD, you're back! It's been a while, I trust all is well with you. Those chuckwagon race photos have been a good seller for me over the years. Probably less than a dozen or so. It was always a good time at the races. I loved the thunder of those horse hooves as they came around that corner.
  12. Editorial book inside. Chuckwagon race, Calgary Stampede.
  13. When you are in the sky replacement tool, click on the top image then scroll it down to the bottom. There you will see a plus sign. Find your sky image then hit OK
  14. I found that the 1.4 is pin sharp on a 300mm 2.8 and some slight degradation with the 2x,but I can fix that up with Topaz sharpener. Since I do a fair bit of sports photography (or at least I used to, thanks covid) it was worth it for me.
  15. You are totally correct. I tried adapters a long time ago and found them unusable due to the quality of the image. Right now, I only use 1.4 and 2x teleconverters for sports photography. I find the quality pretty good, especially the 1.4
