Taken in the Dordogne a couple of years ago.

River scene I think taken from Beynac

The Castel is Chateau de Belcastel, I think that is on the road from Rocamadour to Sarlat.

When in such scenic areas I get 'taken away' and shoot with abandon, then have a hell of a job identifying the shots and spend hours on Google/images sorting out the locations.

These were taken with an Oly 8080 which had/has a very good lens, much better in my view that the Pentax 20d I now use.  The trouble with the Oly was the controls, I just could not manage them. But then leave the camera on 'P' and it did a very good job on it's own. It had a good exposure feature, you could take a number of spot meter readings of various parts of the scene and it calculated an average, a very good average.


Also they (the pics) are pre Qimage Studio - Silky Pix and processed to a very warm rendition.  The actual colours were not that far into the autumn.

I have many more from this holiday, the light was magnificent.  I don't know what it is about SW France, but the light is definitely different.

Back to original subject, I generally try and eliminate people, I think they make scenic landscapes look untidy, but on the other hand you have to make the best of the situation and if a person/animal - much prefer animal - enhances the shot, shoot it.

Hello all

 


At 800res

1200res

1200res

The three images appeared on my screen,  they were at 1024 res.  and were originals, so assumed all was OK
I think I may have had originals blocked.  Freed up originals so should now be ok

Hello.

I generally try to eliminate all people if possible, but then that is me.  Put a landscape in a camera club competition without a figure in it and it is marked down. Judges always seem to require somebody in red jumper.

Three of my shots in the Dordogne from my Silkypix days when I went in for strong colours,  still do, but Qimage raw processing has toned me down a bit.

Damn, how do we post images here?

I have an Eizo S2112W coupled to two Medions, one running XP other running Vista.  Monitor is calibrated each month with a spyder 2express.

The XP varies hardly at all, takes a good eye to see the difference, however, the Vista changes quite a lot!  I put it down to the graphics cards.

Weezy,
I'm puzzled by your attachment as there is no image as such and I can see 3 borders; black, white and black around a white area whereas Qimage will do 2 borders  Huh
See my attachment below which shows the page preview with an image and 2 borders; note the dimensions are mm.
Are you in fact talking about page margins rather than image borders? If that is what you mean, page margins can be centred in the Page formatting/Margins menu.


That was/is a very useful illustration.  I have not done boarders yet, I am sure that will be helpful.
