    Reflections Parte Deux



    Last of the 3.

    Kindly comment.

    Thanks.

    PS: Tweek, do they still look soft or out of focus to you? I can't honestly seem to tell....

    If the settings are required, i'll gladly post them...

    Cheers.

    Of course i do not mind....

    Now, i'm not too sure but i am getting worried abt my cam.

    I don't seem to understand what everyone means by soft... Now i'm just waiting for the next gathering for a fellow C700Uz user to enlighten me or tell me if there is somethign actually wrong with my cam....

    I'm also facing the same problem with my pics too. I think it's me and not the cam (which I hope so! ) Really wish can join with some Oly users for some photo taking trip to learn some tips too.....

    Hi Wolfgang, these shots are visibly sharper! Without that much of the softness now....so it's probably not because of any fault with your camera I guess. Also maybe because these shots were taken with a tripod.

    Guess why I know they were taken with a tripod (at least the reflection one)? I saw you taking the shots along orchard. You look very young!

    Looks sharp to me~

    One thing... while shooting reflections, I find that it usually gets kind of soft, likely due to the propertis of the reflecting material... ANd sometimes there's problem with focusing... For example your last pic. The reflecting building has all these lines on the surface, the camera will focus on these instead... remember, the distance to the flected subject IS NOT the distance to the reflecting surface.

    But all of my shots have always been taken with a tripod.

    Anyway, maybe it's because i set my contrast and sharpness's settings to high?

    haha no lah, I was just walking along orchard when I saw this guy with his c700uz mounted on a tripod, trying to take reflections of the glass panel of a building. Several people walked by and stopped for him but he waved for them to pass. And I also realised, that this c700uz did not have the lens adaptor on. I was thinking, maybe that night, I will see some building reflection shots in clubsnap.

    Sure enough, Wolfgang posted these shots, and I remember that he hasn't bought the lens adaptor for the c700uz yet, so 90% chance that the person I saw was him.

    Wolfgang, these shots are pretty sharp already, I think it's the camera's sharpening. Next time try normal sharpening and contrast in the camera, but apply some unsharp mask in photoshop. That should sharpen the pic nicely.
