    Been a while since I've been out and done something like this, but wanted to go out in the fall again.

    Fucking hate that I forgot my stand at home though. Didn't really get the sharpness up that much.

    Especially in the first one, but I really liked the colors so I left it to try again sometime. Tried to sharpen it in PP, but yeah...shit in shit out :lol:

    Had to use longer exposure because the noise on higher ISO was unbearable (APS-C sensor), so the stars are a little blurry. Oh well.

    I am a total beginner with this stuff. Mago's photo of the owl or hawk or whatever it is has inspired me - would love to photograph things like that, as well as some close ups of various stuff.

    What would be a good set up for a beginner bearing in mind I have a strong preference for something reasonably compact. I just use my iPhone 6 atm and I'm guessing that is just not up to the job!

    Any advice much appreciated.

    Thanks, Plendakor. Really like your stuff and reading a bit the Nikon D3200 (D3300) seems a great option to start out. And would leave a bit of cash for another lense down the track.

    Was out in the bush the other weekend and I just couldn't do the scenery and wildlife justice with the iPhone. And then seeing this thread has kind of inspired me!

    Is it just me, or does the new template add a huge amount of sharpening on pictures?

    I haven't anticipated to find a photography thread on this forum. Cool.
    Here are some landscape shots I did on a weekend trip just recently. The place is called "Devil's Swamp"...

    Well, i stopped using HDR because of two reasons:

    1: I used 32bit hdr, and with my old laptop it took me around 10 or 20 minutes processing for one single picture. This was way too time consuming.
    2: Most HDR photos are not great to look at, and I was trying to make my HDR shots to look as natural as possible. For example, this photo is a 32bit HDR shot:
    [​IMG]
    This photo took me 30 or 45 minutes to complete (because of my old laptop), but these days i can easily achieve the same look with a single raw file in less then a minute.

    This is the most recent series i shot:

    These pictures have highlights (some with even clipped/unrecoverable highlights) and shadows, but everything whats important in the shot is still visible. HDR wouldn't give me any advantage, because a single raw file can deliver the above.

    I still have to edit photos of a small mansion with a horrible lighting situation, and i might use HDR for that because i can't stretch a raw file that far to get what i want.
