Has the Alt Image thread been superceded now by all special interest threads for every kind of lens maker? It's funny to see this thread sunk down, four or five days since its last posting.
It's a shame really. The alt image thread used to be a one-stop-shop for viewing images created with all types of gear, which was great for discovering new lenses and of course seeing the many different styles the great photographers here have. And before the alt board was fractionalized, there a better sense of community here IMO. Anyways, let's try to keep it going!
I got away from posting in this thread ... not because I'm not using alts, but because I'm doing more PP'ing than I felt was a fair representation of the glass. Part of the reason I like the alts so well, is because of how well corrected they are (the ones I've chosen) which means less correction, more creation in PP to S&P to taste. For others, they like the alts because of their inherent "character" ... good reasons either way.
I figure alt users aren't interested in my PP, they want to see the glass in its more 'natural' state. I spend more time in PC forum these days, but I haven't forgot the gang over here either. If you can handle a x-post or two and some PP (always disclosed), I'll see about tossing a few more this way.
Here's an Oly 18 vertical pano on a Kodak SLR/c from Horseshoe Bend. 4 images, three for the vertical pano +1 for exposure composite.
