Jim, love the black and white sheep and the last one too. Cute.

Here's one from today, Mamiya 55N + Mirex, 9 shot HDR pano (3 shots each shifted left, center and right)

johnahill - great shot! Wonderful color.I have a tilt shift lens and trying to figure out how to get the most out of it.Can i ask how did shifting this shot benefit the composition.How would it have looked if you did not shift it?

Thanks for the comments folks.

Jim, the Mirex tilt shift adapter i'm using has 15mm movement left and right of center.

So 3 shots are taken, one shifted fully left, one centered and one shifted fully right, then merged in PS.

The shot below shows all 3 shots before merging together.

I also used about 2' tilt to help get the DOF to extend from the closest flower to the distance.

Similar results are possible using a pano head but as I have the shift adapter I find it an easy method of pano stitching

John, it looks like there might be enough overlap between the left and right shots to skip the middle shot. Have you tried this?

It's a fair point Carsten, there is enough overlap and it's how I used to stitch images from my Oly 35 shift.

Some bright spark did memtion here on the alt forum that using only extreme left and right shifts does mean that the center part of the image is then made up of the 'inside' edges of each of the 2 shots and may not be the best for image quality.

No worries Jim, I think i've maybe made a bit of a booboo though, I think the tilt has just dropped the foremost tree out of DOF and stopping down another stop would have been better.

I agree very interesting rendering.

I have a Wollensak Velostigmat f3.5 C mount that i have the adapter for but i cannot figure out how to move the focus throw on it.It has markings from 3 to infinity as well as what appears to be a focus ring but i cannot get it to move Does anyone know how this lens works? Its very tiny.

Thanks Jim/Mat. It's an interesting lens, nothing really special however, except they don't seem very common.
