A iffy garden photo can be turned into something worth putting in a frame

A few minutes using Photoshop can produce results like this. A section of the above image received some Photoshop magic.

heres a recent trophy shot on a d70 with the d40s 18 - 55 mk2 lens and sb 900, i know its a plastic mount but guys its quite a good sharp lens and ideal for fishing trophy shots

on my d700 i have a 50mm manual f1.8 and its fantasticly sharp lens and i can set it up via the menu to use all coupling ie metering for about 50-60 quid result just need to walk about more

Keebs and bungle, they are some brilliant photos. Well done and keep putting them up! I do like the landscape shots but a lot people dont realise how hard a bird in flight shot like those are to get. Having an slr and fandango lens is only a fraction of the battle!

On later editions of Windows there is a viewer called Windows Photo Gallery. It is my default setting for opening J Pegs.

At the top of the viewer it has a drop down called fix with it you can do the following. Resize the image, alter the colour, fix red eye and lighten or darken an image. Two seconds with a slider and the image looks like this.

Not a bad result when you compare the two images, could be a very cheap option as you probably have it already.

I shoot at 800 & 1600 regularly for bird pics (you need similarly high shutter speeds for sports too)
Removing digital noise from high ISO's makes a huge difference to the end result.

If you have Photoshop this plug-in is well worth the money. Far better than the denoise algorithm in PS.

Thanks for your help, I was struggling that day because it was such low light. The ISO was already at 1600 for most of the shots and I wasn't going to go any higher, so getting a fast enough shutter speed that the subject was crisp but light enough at the same time was tough. I did use flash on a few but with that I then had the problem of a dark background and light subject!

Need an off camera flash setup really to get over the problem.

I will try using GIMP, as doing the manual over-write in word would take forever with over 300 photos in the set.

Thanks again.

Took the liberty of altering the exposure as an illustration of a basic Photoshop application that is used to enhance shots. This one is a bit OTT and could be toned down a tad.
Post editing software is very useful on a lot of levels. You do not have to use Photoshop as far cheaper options exist although not offering the scope of photoshop. Have a look at GIMP, free editing software off the web it is not an easy programme but you may find it does everything you need. Next best thing to Photoshop and it is free.

You can import the image into word and use a textbox to put in the necessary information. Or there are a number of low cost programmes that allow you to place words over an image.
Microsoft publisher part of office pro edition if you have it will do this as well
Don’t think that you loose any image quality but could be wrong about that.
Hope that helps I know Ken does mark his work but I think he may have photoshop

Nice shots mate, difficult subject. If you are not doing so already try setting your camera on the sports setting and with a high shutter speed panning with the subject as it goes past. This setting takes a burst of shots just keep the shutter release down

I think word has a copyright logo in the advanced section and you should be able to copy and paste onto the image, will check that out and get back.

So i've started to do some event photography, mostly mountain bike races.

I'm just posting them on flickr then having to direct people to the sets on various forums.

I'm also getting good comments for my work, so would like to know about what I can do in terms of easier ways of hosting the pictures for people to find them, as flickr doesn't show the sets in google results.

Also, do I have to own photoshop in order to put copyright details on them, so people can't just save them?

Here's a few samples from the race too







Many thanks

Spot on mate, just the right amount. I have applied this effect to a couple of studies but yet to learn the lesson that less is more

Just had a go in Gimp.
Think this looks about right, more opacity don't look natural to me how about you?

Had you thought about creating a partial reflection in the water, post production? Nice shot by the way
