A couple pictures I took in Charleston, SC today.
I took these pictures with my Canon G11. Tell me what you think. In the one picture you can see my white Nissan Xterra. I was a little over 200 feet on some of them.

I do not understand. They are crystal clear and in perfect focus when I import them into my computer. Then when I put them on RunRyder they look horrible. Not sure what I am doing wrong. I am new to all this. Please help. Thanks.

They look compressed. How do I save and put them on RunRyder the way they come out of the camera?

Hi David,
The shots themselves look good, do you have Photoshop?
It would help to slightly crop the one where you captured just a sliver of the horizon. Do to the time of year and the angle of the sun, they look a little washed out. In photoshop you can increase the saturation, enhance the blues, greens and reds.
If you have manual operation on the camera, open the F-stop a bit and increase the shutter speed. I usually like to shoot at around 1250 shutter speed.
As for unedited shots and being new at it, I think you did very well.
What kind of set up are you using?
Jay

Hey Jay. Thanks for some of the suggestions. Yeah I have not put it in Photoshop to crop and touch it up. The bridge shot was kind of into the sun that is why it is washed out. I used my Rotomotion SR20 with my Cannon G11.

Hey Doublah,

Nice pics.

You're the first Rotomotion user I've found !. I hope you don't mind answering a couple of questions:

What do you think of it ? - got any pics of the rig ?.

What made you go with Rotomotion ?.

How much did the heli cost ?.

How long have you had it ?.

Aren't Rotomotion based in SC - do you live near them ?. Would make it easy going back for support.

TIA for your help.

Barry.

David, not sure if you already do or not, but always shoot in raw!

I messed around with the image you had on photobucket and got this:

IIRC, the g11 can open up to f/2.8 but like any lens, it will be sharper at a more narrow aperture. I'd recommend shooting at around a 5-5.6. With good lighting, obtaining a high shutter shouldn't be a problem.

When I usually shoot outdoor stuff on a sunny day, I can shoot at f/5.6 and get a shutter of around 1/4000 with an ISO of 1000.
