Hello Brian

How are you keeping? Well I hope.

I have just put two photographs on my gallery, before and after shots.

If you would be so kind to share your thoughts with me I would be most grateful.

Following a fall of snow I had a session in my back garden strictly for the family album....no prizes will be won.

I set up the camera, as below, and paying close attention to Histogram and Highlights I felt I had got the optimum. Although the darks were too dark and the highlights too bright they did not show anything that could not be adjusted in ViewNX2. Any adjustments to shutter speed, aperture and EV distorted the Histogram and Highlights so I left these alone.

When I post processed the images, 70 out of 74 at family album quality,I added D-lighting between +30 to +50 and added around +17 for the Shadow Protection I noticed that artefacts were creeping in
at +1 with Sharpness or any further increase to Brightness so these were left at zero. In this instance 70 out of 74 was OK and the main thing was for the first time I had a consistency throughout the shoot. The late afternoon light(3.45 pm GMT)was reasonable and without change but as the shoot wore on the sun was giving off a slight yellow cast towards the end of the 45 minute shoot.

The settings on my D50:-
Development: Sharp
ISO: auto 1600 in red
WB: Cloudy...other choices enhanced the blue hue
Sharpness: High
Tone: Auto
Colour Hue: Mode 3a 0
Saturation: Normal
Metering: Matrix
Shutter Speed: 1/250
Shutter Priority
Aperture f4.8
EV: 0
Focal Length: 85mm
Lens: 55-200mm
AF: Area mode
Closest Subject

ViewNX2 for the whole 70 images:-
D-Lighting: +30 to +50
Shadow Protection +17

Your thoughts and an insight to what you would have done would be greatly appreciated.

Kindest regards

Philip
