Colors of fall

I bought a polarizer and went out today to chase colors of fall. I was surprised of how well the BW polarizer worked and how extreme colors and sky turned out. Pictures below with my sister included has been flashed. :)

    A pretty autumn, and a pretty and lively sister, Carl — it seems you have many of those, if they do not multiply in the images…

    The Carl touch also, of seeing something, especially in this one, at least for me:

    Many thanks for all the nice things, on a crisp autumn Friday which brings smiles, with good conversations also in Basel.


  2. Thanks Clive! :D It’s funny that you see some “style” that I have. :D Thanks for looking that deep. My sister says thanks too :D

    Hi Carl!

    Thouse pictures are simply amaizing, I hope I’m going to reach that level of photografy some day :O

    Can You please tell us exactly what filter did You use?

    I allso have some questions about Your blog construction, I’ve got some problems with my own…
    I’t wold be great If you cold write something at my e-mail.

    p.s. Sorry for my poor english,

  4. Hi Komar! I’ll gladly help you with whatever wordpress you need help with. Mine is very simple and not much extra. nothing homemade so to speak it’s all free plugins. mail me what you need help with and I’ll try my best.

    These photos are all what I would call snap shots, no tripod involved and no “special hour”. Even two ZOOM lenses used!! :D What you need is a good polarizer, in my case I just bought the BW Slim Polarizer. price, somewhere around €100 (ring diameter 77)

    Your english is great! :D

    Who needs B&W if you can have such strong polarised Sigma colors? I like the deep blue sky and the shiny yellow leaves :) Your sister? Well, you can’t be your father so when looking at her pictures you are both soooo similar, even the smile :) All great captures as always…

    Hi Carl!

    Sorry to bother You again.
    I’ve sent You an e-mail on the adress You gave me.
    I was wondering did you get it? I had no response from You.
    Maybe it dissapeared somewhere on spam filters ;) ?

    Hi,nice shots
    Want to know, how do you calibrate your screens?
    spider, software?

  9. Hi Evge, I calibrate my monitor using Spyder2. It’s working great! Actually it’s not mine I lent it from another dpreview member that lives near by. Thunderlance. He’s very kind. :D

    Hi Carl,
    what a wonderful combination of polarized sky and automn leaves. Looks like inspiration from you work will never end. :)
    I’ve always been a fan of how the sky looks at your pictures. Could you give some general advice/guideline how to work to make the sky perfect? Apart from playing with exposure and saturation in SPP. I am not only talking about using polarizer. Back in 2004 you were writing that one needs some work to make sky perfect with SD9? Does it still hold true for SD10 and SD14?
