8 credit TIFF sales for just 1 hr

posted on 11th of february, 2011

Let me share my success with you, colleagues. I have had a great hour right now. During that hour 8 my images were sold in TIFF format. It is a part of 16-pics set constellation images that I produced in November 2010 spending complete weekend for this purpose and working from early morning till early night. Am not I a cool guy? :-)

Some trick for noise rejection

posted on 16th of february, 2011

Lately I took a set of pictures with night urban scenes. Such a subject requires relatively long exposures and ISO should be in most cases high enough. All this stimulates noise and so, normally night photos contain a good deal of noise artefacts. To supress noise I applied some techinque that I took from my astrophoto experience and now I would like to speak on this matter.


So, for all my night shots I used tripod and took several shots from the same point and with all the same sets (typically from 5 to 10). Surely, I saved pictures in RAW format since (a) it does not use any compression and so, it does not rape any information; (b) it uses 13 bits to code brightness (for my Canon 350d) in contrast to JPEG which does only 8. 8 bits are quite enough for resulting image but...

to Maatzey: Hi Maciej. The technique I described here does not work for stars if you want to keep also landscape. I am going to write several blogs on shooting stars but, unfortunately, have noy fount time for this yet.

Anyway, thanks for the link - your image is nice.

Well I have done some test using Your method and some other. unfortunately with 18mm and 20sec. exposure I was not able to keep the stars in one point :( As this creates also nice effect I was more heading for "one point stars". Please have a look at the outcome of my tries

I would like to introduce my collection which is dedicated to very first downloads on DT for each of us.


I suggest to use this collection to share our first sales. Let each of us shows there a picture that was one's first download on DT. We all remember that brilliant moment when figures in "Uploads:" field became non-zero. It was exciting, impressive and gaily. And gave us lot of pleasant feelings. Let's get a bit nostalgia and repeat that moment.

To get your very first download to be presented in the collection you are welcome...

About me

I started to take photo seriously in 2009 shooting sky objects (which my PF started with). Then I extended my interest to other subjects. I would be grateful to those buyers who let me know how and where my images are used. It can be done by commenting the image that has been bought. Thank you!
