    Re: Original photos for wallpaper etc.

    Here's my second attempt at photography. Took this a little while back. It's a close up of "fireweed" in northern Saskatchewan.

    Edit: I saved the picture as a higher resolution this time around. I lost the metadata somewhere along the way so I'll post the important stuff.

    Camera - EOS Digital Rebel XS
    Lens - Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS
    Shutter time - 1/83 s
    Aperature - f/5.7
    ISO - 100
    Focal Length - 55mm
    Flash - No
    WB - Cloudy

    I did some minor editing with GIMP which involved making it brighter, giving the green a little more colour and making the flower more pink and less purple (which is what it actually is).

    I am going to set it up as a wallpaper.



    Wow! What a nice photo is this! I have also saved it and also set it as my desktop background and it looks so nice on my desktop.

    Thanks

    This is a favorite in my collection of b&w photos taken with my Kodak Retina IIa camera.

    This is at the Fort Worth, Texas Water Gardens. For those who may not recognize the place or were too young, this pool was used in a scene from the 1976 movie Logan's Run.

    Would you mind sharing the camera, lens and settings you used for those first 2 shots? They're awesome!

    Just one more that I use as a desktop quite often, this is straight out of the camera, no 'photo-shopping (Gimping ?) other than to change from raw to jpg.



    If you like it, just click the image for the full res version.

    Shutter Speed) = 1/100 sec
    F-Stop = ƒ/45
    Exposure Program = manual
    ISO = 100
    EV = -0.67
    Metering Mode = spot
    White Balance = cloudy weather (10)
    Flash fired, auto mode, return light detected
    Focal Length = 105 mm
    Exposure Mode = manual exposure (1)
    White Balance = manual

    @Austin25, used carefully a phone camera can give decent results, just make sure that there is plenty of light

    Cheers David
