The Easter weekend in Gaeta…
Critics are welcome as usual
All shot with e-p3 and panasonic 20, except 16 and 17 shot with fuji x-e1 and kit lens.
Might just be me, but I see a huge amount of vignetting in most of the photos, very distracting...
That's the pin hole camera effect I adopted in almost all of them. I like that filter very much but yes maybe is too much for 20 shots.
Yeah, that's distracting.
Beautiful images from a beautiful area. I would love to visit there.
Thank you caimi!
What a beautiful place and a nice set of images. Like some others have noted, I found the excessive vignetting distracting in some of the images. Are you using the camera's built-in art filter?
If you don't mind doing a bit of post processing work, I would suggest using something like Lightroom and creating a "pinhole effect" preset. This would give you the ability to vary the strength of the effect so that it fits better with each particular image.
Yes, Deejay, I used the pin hole art filter, and I have learnt the lesson.
Won't use it anymore so extensively
nice! was it overcast / cloudy the whole time?
Yeah, cloudy All the time unfortunately..
Very nice set!
Love, love, love the rainy alley picture. Actually, I like them all but the last one in the set really reached out to me - if that makes sense...
Not to me, I'm liking it. Sorta frames the important stuff.
Beautiful images, for sure.
I'm a newb here, but since these remind me of Greece (my 2nd home)... I agree on the 1 hair too much pinhole effect, but, on the other hand it gives me the 'fantasy' of looking through a portal and being able to see home away from home...nostalgia.
I can see why you think it would be distracting, but I like it in many of the images (not all, but many). It tends to lend an element of "old time" photos, and in some cases is somewhat directing the viewer's eyes.
Don't get me wrong, I think it works very well for some of the images. And overall it's a very appealing set. I feel that it works best when your subject is at or near the center of the frame. In those shots where the subject is off-center the heavy vignetting is a bit distracting.
I never use the in-camera art filters, and your shots remind me that they can be quite powerful if applied thoughtfully. I'm going to have to go out and consciously try them out.
Thank you Slot!
And thank you very much jthem and PaulGiz and Strick!
Ah, Strick, you brought me luck. It seems they also liked it...:
