some post-processing

A friend paid a visit to us this afternoon . That was the opportunity to play with the beta version of Lightroom 3... I tried to improve some pictures (exposure, contrast , local sharpening ...),all comments are welcome !

horse riding

My girlfriend and I attended a contest in Versailles in august. I like to think that two shots (out of 50 !) are not too bad for a newcomer.

Bird watching

At the same place, some birds can be seen, especially at the end of daytime. Of course, the light was rather low. But at 400 ISOs and with some strong post-processing, I got some raisonable results with my basic telephoto lens at 300 mm. To be honest, one was taken by my girl friend.


Les Etangs de la Minière

That's quite a nice place between Versailles and Guyancourt. One can have there a romantic walk and it is also possible to practice mountain biking around.
There are plenty of blue flowers, badly lit at the end of the day. In the morning, it should be better.

a week-end in brussels (2nd part)

Even if I didn't take my tripod , I took some nightshots . I used every possibility to stabilize my camera and with a high ISO setting and some noise reduction post-processing , I got some quite acceptable results.

a week-end in Brussels

I am used to go to Brussels for business. Then I am used to see only the train station and the underground. This time, I was in Brussels for a weekend and I took my camera with me ...
