would be interested to know your settings for the above shots, as I have just started using a DP3M
I never shoot it above base ISO. Shoot in bright sunlight and that's it.
These images were edited using the "monochrome" tab in Sigma Photo Pro. The X3F slider is your friend.
Great work mate. This one's my fave - love the luminosity - oh Foveon.
It's not uncommon to see Sigma Merrill shots that look over-sharpened, but these are nice and subtle.Nice contrasty B&W processing as well.
heck of a scale on that building in no 4 - where & what is it? - is space under the deck unused?
So you do all your B & W processing in Sigma Photo Pro 5 …………..and then export as a jpeg
I started, (only had the camera 2 days), just converting the x3f's to 16 bit Tiffs and then importing these into LR 5 for processing and sometimes going in Nik SEP
Love the mix of old and new
That building is probably Kyoto's main tourist attraction, the Kiyomizu Dera temple. It's quite spectacular and offers great views of Kyoto (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kiyomizu-dera).
Here are some more images of the temple, taken with the Ricoh GR
Bill, I usually do exactly what you've listed out. This is the first time I tried processing entirely in SPP. It did better than I expected.
Thanks ran, I find when I use SPP for B & W conversions that it "crashes" 50% of the time and I get the spinning beach ball
Thanks Rav …. I have tried using SPP for B & W conversions and I find that 30% of the time the software crashes and I get the spinning beach ball.
The only solution then is to power down my Mac and reboot
Sigma are really missing an opportunity with this technology thru their lack of expertise in some areas … they should outsource such and let the market fill in their weaknesses
LR saves the day and save as a tiff and import into LR is the only stable solution, IMHO
The have a very good camera
Exactly the approach I took for my DP2m. Occasionally used the x3f slider in SPP before exporting.
