Hi,

I would like to ask in term of picture quality.
there is some picture that I see basically have the object like "Popping" out of the picture.
May I ask is this due to the quality of Lens or was it because different format?

Whats different does Rangefinder output be as compare to DSLR?
The Popping Effect was due to taken by Range Finder or the capability of the Lens (Like Carl Zesis/Leica Lens) Thats has good Micro Contrast or something like that?

Hope someone can enlighten me as I am getting more and more confuse.

hmm...from where i've come across that term, it's used to describe pictures with a nice, broad range of tones (as compared to flat, dull, pictures without the aforementioned )

As to how to achieve such shots, it can be due to ambient lighting or post-processing to "separating the mid-tones", as said by the photographer George Dewolfe :think:

basically you need to study the photos, the content tell alot, technique come second place, gears last.

if you still don't understand, put a spring behind the photos will help.

Maybe TS is referring to out of focus background (bokeh) that resulting in 'popping out' of the subject.

Nope, not really referring to the Bokeh.
Refering to the temple photo, it is like popping out of the background.
I believe the F stop is not too low.
Wondering is it the Rangefinder characteristic or was it the Lens performance.
Or I totally got it wrong?

This is a sample shot i took.
But still it doesnt have the "pop out" feel like those above.
Or was it my skill?

I read what you say. Any chance you can direct a link for me to have a better understanding?

Sorry missed out previous time.

In fact, if you can, i highly recommend borrowing this book from the national library. Found it very useful :thumbsup:

also google vignetting

note: choose the subject and background tones/colours
bokeh too
these things also help the subject to "pop out"

Geez....What did you do?
Masking in CS?
Yes...It look better...but still the flower doesnt pop out....maybe this example of mine maybe due to the overall surrounding colour doesnt allow the flower to pop out.
I was surfing the CZ in the "others" header....the picture they took is what I mean.
