A sunrise shot from near the NE4 site back in August, 2003
nice shot. would be even better if you can edit out the date stamp at the bottom.
I enhanced it for you:
To date stamp, or not to date stamp. Personally, I like date stamps on my digital pictures. My Kodak does them, my new Olympus does not for some reason. I really like the date stamp on them so that I can look at them and see how things have changed over the years. I planted some oak seedlings about 10 years ago and take pictures of them several times a year - nice to easily compare back how they have gone from 1" to about 20'. 8) 8)
QUESTION - what did you use to enhance that picture, nice job.
what did you use to enhance that picture, nice job.
thanks, photoshop techniques such as sponging, dodging, burning and patching ;)
sorry, i'll have to be a snob on this one....no date on my pics :P
Oh, I wouldn't call that a snob, just a personal preference. BUT, I found out recently it is easy to "lose" the JPEG details that come with a picture when saved to disk. If you copy/move/resize etc. on it or do something else, you might lose the actual JPEG file stamps associated with it and then you don't have a clue as to when. Of course, judging by my photo subjects of gas station prices, etc. - that's probably why I like a date stamp - I remember back in ought six (06), gas was only $2.50 a gallon at PJ. Now, in 16, (2016), it's $9.75 a gallon.
i shoot in RAW image format, which won't lose the original shooting data :)
The picture was taken with a Minolta point and shoot type camera (I'm not real photo-terminology-illiterate), anyway it was developed like that and plus it easily dates the photo for me. I have a nice Nikon digital now and just love it!
David: I don't think you are being a snob not wanting to include date or time stamps. It definitely is a matter of personal preference. On a misc. note, I have never seen a photo editor or company to date that would accept them for publication or useage except in rare instances.
