Turnstones, St Marys

Posted on 27 January 2010, 17:41

Some time off work today gave me the chance to spend a couple of hours at St Mary’s: purely by luck, I arrived just at the top of the tide, and before long it dropped just enough for me to get onto it, and for a fun couple of hours it was just me and the Turnstones.

The light wasn’t great, but there was some sun now and again, which is a lot more than the weather forecast gave me to anticipate. That said, I was at 800 ISO for several of these, and 1250 ISO for one – but you won’t know which from just looking at the images (Exif is in all of ‘em – see if you guessed right).

I think I’ll need to revisit my post processing for 7D shots. None of these look as sharp and detailed at this size and resolution as they do at bigger sizes – they’re very sharp.

I’m not quite there with the colours from Capture One 5 conversions either. That said, the colours from the RAW files are very “warm”, and the seaweed is really colourful.

I think a website rework is in order too, so that I can post bigger files.
