Brian Byrne, Lead Singer with “I Mother Earth” performing at WTFest

I own Pentax, Canon, Nikon, FujiFilm and Sony DSLRs. They are all good. Last year I picked a Nikon D7000 refurbished by Nikon. I bought it because I could not afford a Nikon D5. The D7000 apparently uses the same Sony sensor as my Sony A57. The Sony was low priced but is an amazing camera.

The Nikon D7000 is the first DSLR from any make that I do not like. No issues while shooting. Long battery life from the NiMh AA batteries via a Nikon grip. Everything in the field seems fine.

I do not like the way that the photos look. The colour balance can be easily adjusted. But the photos look soft. I have a really sharp 80-200 f2.8 Nikkor which takes sharp photo, even when mounted on a Canon DSLR. I’m not sure if I might not have setup the camera properly. on the D7000. This year I found some new setting on a Photo Forum which I have yet to test.

Anyhow I had some photos of I Mother Earth performing at WTFest last year (2015). I do not like the way they look. I just installed some new software called Silver Project Pro and HDR Projects Pro. I installed both on my internet PC Later on I’ll put them on the PC which I use for Photo Editing. They should work better as a plugin within Photoshop.

Simple and easy to use. Did not read any manual. Just clicked around. Note the original was a compressed Jpeg. Silver Projects Pro saved a very larges Tiff from the tiny Jpg. When I compressed it to Jpeg I could not see any difference between the Tiff and the now much smaller sized Jpeg.

I like the last version – the B&W from Silver Projects Pro. Look at the Saidah Baba Talibah photo. That is in the side bar (might also show in the top header). same lens but different Nikon body. That Saidah photo is super sharp. The Brian Byrne photo, not so much. This was in the day time so I do not think that is due to camera shake.
