Rocky headland | A7 III and FE 70-300 G OSS | four portait frames stitched in LR | 1/160s | f/9.0 | @ 70.0 mm | ISO 100

More from Pembrokeshire this week, from a walk out to St David's Head from Whitesands beach, near St Davids. This is a stitch of four portrait frames of a rocky outcrop on the north shore of the headland.

B: This week in 2014


Isis training | NEX-7 and Sigma E 30mm F2.8 | f/8.0 | 1/500s | ISO 100

It seems I didn't take any photos in this week in 2014, but I did on the first day of the next. I used an in-camera miniaturisation effect with the good old NEX-7.

Corbel | A7 III and FE 28mm F/2 | f/8.0 | 1/250s | ISO 100

I featured this shot in my third Open View sequence, and I was struck by the likeness this exterior decoration has to the British actor Jeremy Irons.

Your creative shot this week is very good, amazing how the stitching doesn't cause any trouble in the moving waves.
I'm no big fan of the "miniature effect", but it kind of works here. Only the slightly sharper branches to the right distract a bit from the rowing team.
Nice detail from the cathedral in your prime shot, but if I look at your post of the entire series there I like the transept crossing even better, and that's also with the same prime
You can see the April Foolishness 2021 exhibition here Another great show of the talent we have on Dyxum

Thanks, Pieter. Stitching is a mystery to me and I leave it to the Lightroom gods. Your comments as ever always appreciated.

I did this montage for an Open View thread on Skomer and now it reminds me that I have more to do in those threads!

Good selection of shots there Howard for Week 21. I do like the Puffin montage. It's a good subject and a nice creative twist. Bu the prime shot is really quite special. I'm impressed you got something that good with ISO 8000. Did you need to run it though any advanced noise-removal algorithms?

Thanks, Kai ... as for the ISO 8000 shot, I processed that in Lightroom from the source ARW file and it says here that I made no adjustment for Noise (0 on Luminance) and left the default 25 on Colour. Normally I would dial in something but here I forgot.

It must be something done in expressing the Flickr version (from LR) at 1600px and then using the 1024px version for Dyxum. If I look at the source at 200% the noise is quite apparent, though not excessive. The A7 III was quite a step forward from its predecessors, I believe.

Hi Howard, yeah, the ISO performance on my 3rd generation a9 and a7Riii is also just so much better than the original a7R. I can shoot happily at IS03200-4000 without feeling the need for any tweaks. It's quite handy really- at the event I shot a couple of weeks ago, I could dial up the ISO3200 and make my flash last much longer, as it didn't need to ut out as much light.

It's kind of remarkable considering I disliked going higher than ISO400 on any film camera or early DSLR

Week 22

A: Creative


sculptures /2 | A7 III and FE 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 G OSS | f/5.0 | 70.0 mm | 1/640s | ISO 100

This one was taken on my DM photowalk with Harm VB in Gorinchem. The two figures here (dol hareubangs) are a gift from a city in S Korea that was visited by a C17 Dutchman, Hendrik Hamel. Hamel is quite a figure in Korean history (the first westerner to arrive there); he was shipwrecked en route to Japan and ended up living in Korea for 13 years, forbidden from leaving. I believe these two figures are deities that protect the city from demons and harm in general.

I used the Depth Effect neural filter in Photoshop to separate the foreground from background, and blurred the latter a little.

Henry Taunt Close | NEX-7 and E 16mm F2.8 | f/8.0 | 1/250 s | ISO 100

This was a quiet week for me photographically, but I did find a street on the outskirts of Oxford named for the prolific Victorian Oxford photographer, Henry Taunt.

Nave ceiling | A7 III and FE 28mm F2 + Fisheye Converter | f/8.0 | 16.0 mm | 1/125 s | ISO 20000

I haven't been using a prime lens recently, so I have to dip back into my recent visit to St Davids in Wales to find another recent example, this time the 28mm F2 fitted with a Fisheye Converter to make 16mm focal length. I used Lightroom to rectilinearize, if that is a word, the image and also the Noise sliders to 40 luminance/ 50 contrast/ 50 detail to deal with the issues raised by shooting at ISO 20000 (!). I had left the camera in A mode at F8 and so auto ISO took care of the rest.
