    - The other is a M42 mount manual lens. Its a russian
    lens that I recently received - Jupiter 200mm f4

    In article <googlegroups.com>,

    I like this one: http://gallery133884.fotopic.net/p11194754.html

    But I would definitely increase the contrast or go the other way for a
    more foggy appearance. If you have Photoshop CS, use the
    shadow/highlight tool and see what kind of results you get.

    Well, I found your pictures very interesting from a scenic/cultural
    point of view, Siddartha, and I think the presentation quality is good.
    Personally I don't agree with comments about "I would do this or that
    with this image" etc., camera club style. I try to accept the images as
    the author presented them, and yours are to me eminently acceptable. I
    have some some questions, though. What mode were they shot in? They
    appear to me to be RAW shots, judging by the controlled highlights,
    retaining detail even inside the lamp reflectors in the image with the
    person at a desk and surrounded by paintings, but I could be wrong about
    that. Was the exposure as per the meter each time?

    For the scenic side, there appears to be heavy cloud, or perhaps
    pollution in the atmosphere in most of the outdoor shots, giving quite a
    moody feel to the images. Was it so, and is it normal in those parts?
    I have spent some time in Hong Kong over recent years, and atmospheric
    haze/smog reduces visibility there to about a kilometre or less at
    times, unlike New Zealand, where sometimes you can see for literally
    hundreds of kilometres, and almost always tens of k's.

    Thanks for putting up those images,

    Colin

    Funny. Everyone who looked at that picture liked it except me. I didn't
    find it extraordinary at all. Instead, I was struck by this one as soon
    as I saw it:

    Thanks for the feedback anyways.

    Surprise surprise :) They were shot in JPEG Super Fine mode. But I
    guess the credit for that goes to Canon and not me. Nope, the exposure
    wasn't what the camera recommended each time. It was tweaked to my gut
    feel mostly. But in this particular photograph, yes, it was manually
    set so that EV is '0' in the meter. I used the minimum possible
    aperture to give myself maximum shutter speed to prevent blurring.

    Yes, there was a bit of haze all around especially in the morning
    shots. The 18-55mm I used has a B+W Skylight 1A filter while the
    Jupiter 200mm doesn't have any filters.

     

    Thanks for reviewing them :)
