Thanks Again Ann


A few days ago, Ann from SnapEditScrap posted the link to Advanced Tips for Tack Sharp Images on her post Experimenting. . You will remember she and I have a running DUEL going on. sooooo


You all know The Rest of The Story. I read it and  I did!

Experiment I mean.



 All of these photos were taken from 10 feet away, using AI Servo Focus Tracking. IT WORKS.


No edits on the four above other than re-size for web use, but the ones below I did without the Focus tracking, but had to edit in Picmonkey to get them sharp.


Yes we have tomatoes and also Bananas are getting BIG

Of course I don't know what any of this means. But the pictures sure are pretty. You will have great BLT's!!!!

SquirrelQueen said...

Those are very pretty little tomatoes. Experimenting is always lots of fun. The AF seems to work really good.

Super sharp shots and delicious tomatoes. I use DPS web site a lot. It is full of great tips. I use this site a lot but I had not seen this article. I've used AI Servo for moving objects or when in a moving bus but I must try it on still subjects too.

I have two green coctail tomatoes on one plant - and some flowers. Now just waiting for a bit more sun and warmth...

Gotta love experiments. You got some great shots there and those tomatoes look very good. Set out an extra plate because I'm coming over for a tomato sandwich :)

You find the mose interesting and helpful blogs, thanks for posting. THE tomato looks awesome blurred or sharp~ I know that red one will taste good between a slice of bread with mayo and a slice of Vidalia onion... YUM!

Cranberry Morning said...

What gorgeous photos! I want one of those sweet, sun-warmed tomatoes.

And you were kidding about the bananas, right? I didn't know you lived in the rain forest. :-)

A friend has mentioned this before,but I never really gave it much thought. I will now. Who doesn't want sharper images? I guess we never get to old to learn something new?

Val said...

light years ahead of me on your photography skills.

Have a happy Saturday!

AH----I don't care about the fancy-dancy photo editing. Just send me the tomatoes... ha ha.. I love home-grown maters this time of year... YUM.
Hugs,
Betsy

Inger said...

Great pictures, great tomatoes, and I wish I had enough patience to learn some more stuff to do with my camera and all these programs. Blogging alone seems to take up so much time.

Snapper II said...

Beautiful "maders" or to-ma-toes they all taste good.
Great shots.

photowannabe said...

Ummm, homegrown tomatoes...looking good, Sandra.
Looks like all the techie stuff worked. Great pictures.
Have a wonderful weekend.
The temps are suppose to reach 105 here today.
Thank goodness we are going to a BBQ at a relatives up in the foothills by a river. Should be 10 degrees cooler. Think I had better bring a jacket! (:0)

Hugs madi and mom

Chatty Crone said...

My mouth is watering too - I love tomatoes. You can even see the tiny hairs on them! sandie

SweetMarie said...

the only thing I do on my photos is sometimes re-size them. you are learning so much! really great pics! I don't care for tomatoes, but these do look real good! :)

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Sandra, our tomatoes are not ready yet, but we do have cukes and fresh basil, so if you bring the tomatoes we could have a nice salad.

Deb said...

our tomatoes are going crazy...cool photos....you have so much fun...

George said...

Thanks for sharing the tips. I use AI Servo, but it's nice to know it is not just my imagination. I really like the results of your experimentation.

Linda Chapman said...

I have no idea what you were talking about - I am not a photographer. But I LOVE those pics and tomatoes!!

Barb said...

Keep up the good work with the pics. I'm learning vicariously through you ;)

The tomatoes are looking quite tasty, too!

Debra Dickinson said...

I don't know whether to be more envious of the photos or the actual tomatoes. Yum!

Rose said...

Now I am really wishing I was there...rain and RIPE tomatoes! What more could one ask for?
