Please do not vote with number. I have another question for the experienced photographers. I saw Karl O. get deducted on Tales for Cyrpt the other day for "blown highlights" as interior lighting hit one arm of statue harshly. So.. look at the sunlight streaking through the tree-tops in areas to hit the face of the house which I shot early to intentionally capture. What constitutes a "Blown Highlight" as I am unclear what to attempt to capture and what to avoid.?? Thanks in advance for any assist on adding a piece to the puzzle for me.. :)
Well done, some burnt areas
I only do photography as a hobby, this is almost burned, ihmo. There are still yellow colored pixels. I think the truth is burnt completely white (often in the clouds). I'm not a pro, but if you ask an a pro, will say the same thing.
in Tales of Crypt (Karl) i voted 10 (ihmo acceptable burned)
Thanks Bjorn.. Phil and Leonardo. Could you point out burnt areas or are you referring to over-all. From first hand I can tell you the house is in dire need of a pressure wash and new paint. Hence.. spots on lower columns.. trim facia and walls which is l
effect of mildew weathering. The door has an inside poly-urethane coating which is wearing uneven from UV rays and moisture. A classic case of why not to use inside poly finish outside. So.. it my whole picture burned by fault of mine or am I simply captu
capturing what I see in reality? The reason I would like to pinpoint burn or just over-all burn? Thanks again guys..
BTW.. the house color is an off-white almost to be described light almond colerd if that is of any help in assesment.
Thanks Flip.. after contemplating burn using the above info I believe everyone is referring to just the areas of bright sun-light hitting in various spots as was my original question. Interesting.. I'm kind of prone to think there is a fine line between a
aceptable and non-acceptable. Is the glass half full.. or half empty.??
For me John the burns appear in the upright pillars, but it's not really bad. Try taking a wider exposure range. I often take 9 images but even that's sometimes not enough.
yes, sometimes it's just a glass half full or half empty ....
sometimes with the click n. (-2 underexp) get in camera raw (Pshop) -3 and -4. So i can have -4, -3, -2, 0 +2
Now you dont kile numbers Jhon? What happens in the sensor of your camer is that there is a limited range of frecuency that is can respond to. anything above the limit will be plain white. (ergo: burn) the same happens with computer screens and everything
Thanks Karl and Leonardo. That answers a lot for me on the half empty.. half full theory. Unfortunately my point and shoot will only auto bracket 3 shots and I don't have Raw capability. I will consider going to manual settings for more exposures on trick
Leonardo's advice on exposure I think would help with bright sunshine/light on some surfaces. I do prefer the composition on this one John....
(*like). .....everything else in digital photography.
Thanks also Doc and Graham.. the pieces to the puzzle are starting to fit into place giving me a bigger picture so to speak. I need to do some Googling on the subject obviously which fortunately I do have time for retired.
John, the traductuor of google sometimes not help me much, did not quite understand your question, but I can tell, I liked the process of yesterday
and the composition of today (could put the two pictures in a shaker and view
out) ha ha.
In my previous photo camera, also had a bracket of 3 exhibitions.
What I did was take in manual mode, and leave it aperture, varying the speed. The aperture should not be vary because it changes the depth of field.
Thanks Bessi and Ricardo. @Ricardo.. just trying to determine exactly what "burned" means so I better determine when something is or isn't burned. :)
The problem with using manual mode, is the movement, so a tripod is essential. In summary when there is lots range of lights, not enough 3 shots. The RAW format gives great flexibility.
Thanks again Ricardo.. my tripod is a Manfrotto that cost almuch as much as my little camera but.. well worth it IMO. Good tip of in varying light sources 3 exposures not enough.. simple and to the point.
I will try my take on explaining Burn to you john. Digital cameras are based on a color range 0-250. 250 being white. if you have clipping in your histogram to to the complete right those area's are burnt and the information is lost. so there is no detail
John I think it's very good, perhaps a little clear in highlights (column and righ side of door) but very good effect!
