      What lens is used to acquire such colour?

    3. Rasmus Hartikainen 17 months ago | reply

      Nikkor 24-120mm VR F/4G

      Yeah, not as much as most of my images, but mainly more contrast and a touch more saturation.

      Okay, have any pics that werent edited?

      Sorry, all my images in Flickr are (heavily) color corrected nowadays. Maybe this Springtime Ice, and this one: www.flickr.com/photos/rasmushartikainen/5913147315/ are the least edited of my 24-120mm pictures. These images were originally more muted (less colorful) and lacked contrast, which I usually add quite a lot in post-processing.

      I think if I would have used jpeg from camera, pumped up the contrast and saturation settings, I could have maybe gotten these looks.

      Okay it fine. :)
      Just what type of editing do you do to make this color, is it the editing or the lens?

    8. Rasmus Hartikainen 17 months ago | reply

      Editing is the most important element to get the color you want regardless of camera maker or lenses.

      Lenses basically give you more or less contrast: If you want contrasty pictures and don't want to do a lot of post processing, buy top glass (24-70mm is a little bit better than 24-120mm in this regard, but not overly so). But sometimes cheaper glass gives you more headroom when post-processing, because they give you quite muted images which makes it easy to pump it up.

      So in summary: If you like to post-process your images, lenses don't make that much difference in the end result, only your vision and skills. If you don't want to post process your images, use top glass and shoot jpeg (tune the jpeg-settings to your liking).

      Sorry no, Getty Images licensing agreement prevents that...
