After a bit of “housekeeping”, which includes thanks to contributors and a nod over to the Focus Ring, I try to use the stuff hidden in the <Image>/Color/Auto menu. My results are not that good and I try to do it better with curves.
Why did I fail? No idea, it may be the software or perhaps my choice of image was bad. Please share your experiences with this option.
At the end of the show I lift the secret behind the numbers 1 – 1.4 – 2 – 2.8 – 4 – 5.6 – 11 – 16 – 22 …. – aperture numbers decoded.
I couldn’t decide which of the two shots I made for the show image should go into the post, so here are both.
