Entry 29 of 40
   
 
Spot The Sun Spot       ©2006 MightyMike
Panasonic DMC-FZ30       29th place, 23 points
1/2000s, f11, ISO 80, 420mm, Manual, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Denoise
Crop
Levels (not enough to really effect the outcome)
add a pinch of saturation (not much)
Sharpen
      Extra Info: I set the camera to F11 and 1/2000th of a second... then i put a bunch of filters on my lens to knock the light down...

Green Filter (POO)
Orange Filter (YA2)
Red Filter (FL-DAY)
Blue Filter (80a)
Blue Filter (80b)
Yellow Filter (Y3)
CPL
ND 0.6 (4x)
another CPL
Slightly Red Filter (1A)

This setup dropped the light approx 11.5 stops so the picture is representative of any camera at F11 and a shutter speed a WOPPING 1/6,000,000th of a second

    Hi, I was perusing the PanaChallenge website and found your photo of the sun. I would like to shoot one with my FZ50 and wondered if you could give me some pointers so I won't ruin my camera, and get a great shot.
Thanks,
Bernie (mrsawyer on Panachallenge)

    Wow, two SUN photos in this challenge, each with its own character. Remarkable technical achievement, I think -- I'd be scared to even try it. In my first draft of favorites (top 15).

    I can only think of one Panasonic user that has all of these filters. hmmm...maybe I don't know you, but I think you are the MIGHTY Mike. ;-) Nice shot regardless of who you are!

    Neat- have to give credit based on the technical merit. Stacking all those filters is really thinking different. In my TT.
