A very old DMC-LC5 with Leica optics. CYMG filter. Original slightly noisy but with modern software that can be corrected. Nice 4MP image saved as TIFF in camera. Used a 28mm attached lens, with a Leica 28mm finder because the viewfinder was obscured by the big lens attachment.
I lived here on Greenwich during the 80's. I could walk down the steps into the financial hub of San Francisco, or turn right and walk down the hill into Northbeach with its Italian restaurants like Cafe Sport, Cafe Malvina, and North Beach Restaurant.
By February 2003, I was beginning to understand digital capture, and selected the highest quality JPG on the PDR-M70, which compressed the file 10:1. It made the file 1MB, and since I only had 16MB available on the card I had to be careful what I shot. Now, 128MB is available. Captured at 3.3MB.
This is the Rosetta Stone which was translated by Champollion in Paris in 1822. It is in three languages. This was the key to unlocking the meaning of hieroglyphs. Written in 196 BC, the bottom part is in ancient Greek, which was understood, the top Egyptian hieroglyph (unknown) the middle in demotic script. It was rediscovered by the French in 1799, and as they were defeated by the Brits in 1801, it was brought back to London. It weighs 1700 lbs. That's me in the middle of the picture.
When I shot this in 2002, I couldn't save images at HQ because the MM card was so small (8MB I think), so it was compressed more than I like today. It looks okay small. It was a good capture, anyway. In 2001 this was a state of the art camera at 3.3 MP.
This was taken today at Deerfield Beach, Fl. I had finished shooting for the day and was walking back to the beach house when the blimp caught my eye. Luckily I still had the camera in my hand - Digilux 1. A few seconds too late and the blimp would have cleared the building. I took some follow up shots but none of them was as good. Strangely the life guard was not noticed consciously, but my subconcious knew.
The white area (sail) and white shirt brings the eye down the frame to focus on the hands. The red splash on the hull lifts the eye to the man in the middle distance. The yellow sail brings the eye back to the yellow in the shirt.
Just a grab shot as he came into the scene. The DV Vario-Summicron on this little 3.3 MP camera produces warm tones from the CMYG filter on the sensor. Some pp to reduce noise in the shadows. On these old cameras hardly any noise reduction was applied at source.
Created in LP 2.6. Originally was a daytime picture. Moon by Lunarcell. All work in OS9. It took me about ten hours to isolate the shrimpers and netting, wires etc. from the original sky so that I could insert a different sky which was created in LP. Probably couldn't be created in any other editing software.
