I should make personal thread from this one. Otherwise thats city square of Ceske Budejovice (Bohmische Budweis or Czech Budejovice etc.). Home of few beers (one good, one not) and.. nothing much else. Yea and its old - 1265 founded by one of our better kings (well good ruler, not good person).

Hm.. thats it. More pics maybe will follow, maybe not. Yea and we have two great teahouses.. and one place with awesome icecream. And one place with grilled tentacles. Should take pics of that one day too..

Yes it is!

Various strange things appear on that square.. sometimes it looks like art, sometimes its just wierd. People apparently like this one, saw quite a bit of tourists taking pics with it. I prefer just that old fountain tho.. Using it as background quite often.

Sure.

Heh, this city is a bit less impressive when you live in it.. tho there is a bit of architecture worth shooting. And some other (very nice) historical cities or castles around (part of UNESCO usually). Plus quite a bit of ponds (a lot of them). Actually this whole area was swamp during very dark medieval times. Later they builded those ponds/lakes to hold water. Some of them are quite nice, especially in autumn (or if you are talented in PhotoShop, during whole year ).

Bit boring to live here tho.. its what we call "dog died here". Most of these old cities just turned into well preserved tourist attractions without much life in them..

Three with the A65 I took with me to FInland. Basically I wanted it as a birding and tele camera and it failed partially. I wanted to avoid carrying a lot of weight, because it was going to be with me a big part of the trip. Hence, I went for the lightest 24MP I could get away with. However, the autofocus is not very good, really. It was frustrating more often than not and infuriating at times. Having said that, I did get a few good shots, so not all of it was bad.

A65 is IMHO very decent base ISO (sub base ISO 50, if its like A77) landscape/studio camera. Using it as birding camera is truly crazy. AF in SLTs is bit strange at times, probably reason why Sony will leave it.

That said it seems to have nice colors and I like that 2nd pic of yours.

Does it have focus peaking? (had only A77 in hands)

I never said it's a rubbish camera. It's actually very nice, specially with the Zeiss 16-80! However, I've been addicted to the Fuji XF14, and that's what I've been using most of the trip. Besides, my girlfriend doesn't like me to carry big cameras in cities or around people… And I guess I'm truly crazy, but since I've got all my teles in a-mount, what am I to do?

It does have focus peaking and you can obviously zoom-in for focus, so manual focus is good. It lacks the button to disengage the af, though, so it's kind of annoying. And thanks!

A couple of examples of what I got:


























I guess it's not great, but good enough for me…

Looks like happy couple. Lets hope it really last till death do them part..

Something usual from me..



Sorry about colors, I simply cant resist using this. Tho there will be same pic with different PP in alt thread.

This is one of last two steamboats roaming Prague river. Steamboat is named Vltava and river name is same. Its powered by steam engine with 150 Hp, max speed 16,5 km/h. Length is 53 m, width is only 5,1 m. Has capacity for 250 passangers, from which 100 places is under roof. Includes restaurant, bar and wine bar (simply two separated bars). It was reconstructed to look as much as possible as it looked in 1940 (when it was made).

Up left are towers of Vysehrad Castle (High Castle), I got some pics from local cementary and church (will post them later maybe).

And now something less expected from me.. behold!



Yes, its living breathing human! And place is not far from Vysehrad if Im correct, garden of some sort.. view from this place is pretty good. But, from my position was better.
