    Weapon of choice for a week of photography A7S with 35mm 1.4 Distagon.. I took over 4000 photographs, there's just over 500 snaps on Facebook, many of which just tell the story of the week for the benefit of friends and family

    Croatia Holiday | Facebook

    I've also uploaded a selection to Flickr, and I'll start posting them here

    I'll start off with some street photography - all strangers

    Quality all of them, I'd love to achieve 1/2, scrap that a 1/4 would do me, the standard you achieve it gives me something to aspire to :thumbsup:

    1, 6 and 29 really rock my boat :)

    I'ms sure Jim would hire you to go on holiday with him, but it wouldn't be for you to take photos :devil:

    12, 13 and oddly enough 29 & 30 the standouts for me

    But in the nicest possible way didn't think the street shots (other than 8) were up to your usual standard

    OK, as we're naming them 1,4 and 5 are superb, 1 especially. 11 tickled me, and 20 is very impressive, not only capturing the lightning but also getting the stars too. Please don't spoil the illusion and tell me it's a composite Dan :eek: ;)

    It's NOT a composite :) well -it's made up of about 5-6 images. But they are all the same image, to stack a few different lightning strikes - this is pretty normal for a multiple strike lightning photo.

    Is this the best way to capture lightning then as I never manage it? I tend to just take one shot with a shutter of 30s and hope that lightning strikes during this time :facepalm:

    I used 15 seconds because I didn't want streaking stars, I took multiple shots to capture whatever strikes I could - then layered the strikes in Photoshop.

    I actually have some lightning strike photos taken hand held on a boat which was moving too, at high shutter speeds :D caught a few..

    Great set Dan.
    I also hate you a little bit, one for the quality of your photos, and two for finding the time to use your camera. :D

    Even when I find time, I never manage to process them. I have a big "pile" of photos waiting to be processed. The bigger it gets, the more daunting it becomes. I think I need to be strict and delete the crap and not try and recover them...

    I processed 4000 holiday snaps (including a cull down to 500) in a day, I also went to the cinema and did the food shopping in that day as well.

    If i take a similar amount at a wedding, i'll probably spend a couple of days on them. So much to do... so little time..

    @Dancook did you use a film preset for these pics, if so which one(s)?
