I shot these in JPEG and just touched up the color and contrast a bit in PhotoShop 5.1. Click on any of the images to see them in full size.
Notice how it’s in focus on Jackson’s right shoulder and completely out of focus by his left shoulder. Beastly.
I love how shard this picture is in focusing on Kristen’s face. At f/3.2 the bokeh effect is in full force by her necklace.
This was in full sunlight. Sharp focus on the flower. Ultimately, I would have liked to make the middle layer, the green leaves in the foreground, as blurry as the orange trees in the back. I think the D800 will allow me to do that when I drop it manually to f/1.8. (The D60 didn’t want to go there, no idea why.)
My dog hates having his picture taken. I was glad I got this shot. It’s crisp and clean in the shadows of my porch. Hoping to make that ridiculously sharp with the new camera.
I really thought this captured the contrast of light/dark well.
Didn’t touch this in PhotoShop at all. But I like how this turned out, great colors & sharpness.
Since I was testing sharpness I figured why not toss in a cactus?
