"Bales" image...revelations
« on: September 09, 2012, 10:57:50 AM »

Single image? Not single image mutiple process? If so, WOW!   Just returned home, took a look and discovered those beautiful hand hewn beams, chestnut?, and the undersides of the flooring above, and the support posts, and the back wall, all of these available in an image with newly wrapped bales tucked away but in bright unforgiving sun...quite remarkable range....and one not even need to skip groceries for too many weeks to afford the capture vehicle...glad you posted your workflow...seems straightforward and possibly even doable by the likes of me....

Single image. Basic processing. No tricks.

The DP2m rocks!

Indeed, incredible colours.
I've seen (and photographed) many hay bales, but this is the richest looking bale I've seen so far.

Les, it's nothing to do with the camera: it's Canadian hay that makes the difference, just as it's the water in the streams and rivers that makes Scotch, well, special...

No Rob, it's not the hay. It's the air. Canadian air is more transparent to hay colour frequencies.

Ps: The X3 sensor does seem to have an affinity for yellows and oranges. It doesn't do them accurately, but it can be attractive. I saw this last year when testing the SD1 as well.

I've shot lots of hay bales, but now I see that what I've been missing is the Canadian air.
Nice shot.

Not a lot of people knows that, as Alfie would have said.

Canadian air and water are surely the culprits.
On the other hand, Sigma designers may have been affected by the yellows and oranges in the scotch.

Now we're getting to the nub of the matter!
