Hurstpierpoint Sheep

Goodness! Doesn’t time fly? Must get some more posted soon. Just one for the time being. Have recently been borrowing an old Nikkor manual 50mm lens. (This is a 75mm equivalent on my D3000). It opens up to f1.8 for nice narrow depth of field. It also means the camera is pocketable! (Just.) I think I’m going to have to buy it. I’ve not had my kit zoom lens on for weeks. Of course, I have to focus and meter (guess and then look at the histogram!) manually, but that’s not a prob.

  1. Oh yes, meant to say: this pic processed entirely in camera (Nikon D3000). Shot as a RAW file and then processed to a monochrome jpeg (set to slight sepia) with high contrast setting. Then cropped in camera.

  2. Nice shot, Hundovir! You probably can’t do it in camera, but taking out the bright patch of sky almost dead center at the top of the frame will concentrate the viewer’s attention more fully onto the sheep. Good stuff! Adrian

  3. Thanks Adrian! Yeah, that bit of sky – amazing how it’s possible to miss things like that!
