2013 Favourite Shots – Non-macro

And now a selection of other favourite shots from the year.


1. Long Rake Barn & Tree B&W #2


Roadside near Youlgrave, Derbyshire Peak District.

Nikon D300/18-200VR/cpl

ISO 200 1/500 f/8 handheld, 75mm

Colour version enhanced using various luminosity masks, then converted to B&W using Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 (modified Dark Sepia preset)

This shot lucky enough to be included in the mingthein.com reader portfolio.


2. Sea view near Potami Bay, Northern Samos, Greece



Nikon D300 /18-200VR @ 40mm /cpl

ISO 320 f/10, blend of 3 exposures (1/125, 1/500, 1/1000)


3. Blue Hour at St. Philip’s


A grade-II* listed 13th-century church in the small Oxfordshire Cotswolds village of Little Rollright

8:44pm, almost full moon

Nikon D800E / Zeiss Distagon T*2.8/21 ZF.2

single exposure 
ISO 100 0.5″ f/8

One of my first shots with the new Zeiss  – bracketed the shot, but D800E dynamic range is amazing so I didn’t bother with a blend.

Awarded an Editor’s Pick in the NSN Travel and Culture Gallery.


4. Great Coxwell Barn Roof Geometry


Medieval Grange Barn, Faringdon, Oxfordshire

Nikon D800E /50f1.4G

ISO 100 1″ f/7.1, tripod

Full frame shot carefully cropped slightly for composition

Another shot shot lucky enough to be included in the mingthein.com reader portfolio.  Made a super large A2 print.


5. Bernwood Beech Leaves and Birch


Nikon D800E / 50f1.4G / Lee 105mm CPL

ISO 100 1.6″ f/7.1

A natural scene as found.  Made a lovely A3 print.
