Pics from Asia

It's been a long time since I posted here. I hope you'll enjoy these pictures from China and India

Re: Pics from Asia

Very cool captures Sylvia. Thought I would try G'MIC Pen and a few other things for this result.

Re: Pics from Asia

Nice pics as usual, Sylvia. I was looking at digi SLRs this morning, so you may have a rival (I wish) in the near future.

Nice work Lyle and Fran.

I liked this gent and tried to reduce the busy background and bring him to the fore. I'm not sure I pulled it off - might have to come back to it. I wanted to retain the colour, but it didn't look right, so left it as a B/W.

Re: Pics from Asia

Crapaud, I think you did a great job. The background is much less noticeable.

What brand DSLR are you looking at? I have an Olympus but I'm thinking of getting a Nikon or Canon.

Re: Pics from Asia

I was looking at Nikons, Fran. I'd prefer a Canon, but I've already got an old Nikon with a couple of lenses; one good lens and a cheap and nasty superzoom. I might, hopefully, be able to get a trade-in.

Since joining RTPro I've been carrying my Olympus Camedia compact camera around to get some shots for practice, but the quality's just not there. A good camera in it's day, but technology marches on. Trouble is, I'll need a new computer that'll be capable of handling the larger file sizes ... and CS6 ... and a tablet ... etc.

I've also been keeping an eye out for photo ops and I'm compiling a list for next year, as I've missed quite a few events already this year. The one thing I really need is patience - I want it all now, dammit!

Re: Pics from Asia

Wow, Crapaud, you sound just like me -- wanting a new computer, camera, photoshop, tablet. Is there anything left???

I've also been leaning towards a Nikon. If you get one, please post what model you decided on. I've just started researching so I'm a long way from making a decision. If I decide on a really high end one, I'll have an even longer wait until I save up all my pennies.

Re: Pics from Asia

I see you guys have been busy! Great jobs

I used the Impressionist plug-in on this one...

You'll be SHOCKED if I tell you the camera I'm using right now. It's a very cheap compact, light, Canon PC1474, but it takes great pictures!
