Well, I snuck in too "Thunderstorm" is brilliant, probably my favourite, although there are very many great shots. What equipment were you using?

I am a bit surprised that two people pick "Thunderstorm" as their favourite, although I agree that it is not bad.

It was taken with the 'getting a bit old now' 5D2 and the P1.4/50 YC. I would have preferred the tree a bit larger in the frame, but that would have implied walking through a national park with lions on the lurk. I settled for this version.

Your photos are phenomenal, the whole lot of them. That is horrible about not being able to make it back to that location because of one jerk but it appears that you did get at least one good photo of that area.

Out of curiosity, how much gear and what did you pack for your trip there? You clearly had the wide and super-telephoto ends covered just looking at the photos and I would guess some type of portrait lens besides the 50 planar.

Skyapad - Great shots. Amazing lighting on the pier shot.

Ronny - Thanks for the link. Topedo boat turned into a missile boat to a museum. Quite a history. Love the exposure.

Steve Spencer - Great job taking those swan shots with 21 !!

35/1.4

I agree with all the above; just fantastic shots. I really love the snowy foggy trees Cyra!

Another ice skating capture with the Otus 1.4/55mm ZE @ f/1.4 on a7:

I am wondering how did zeiss manage to have a technically sharp lens at F/1.4 while maintaining very good bokeh? other lenses while they're technically sharp but falls apart on bokeh or vice versa.

Ronny, interesting boat shot with the 21,
Toothwalker, thanks for sharing your pictures, I particularly liked the sand dune photographs, can't pick a favourite, there are so many impressive ones in there. Also like your bird and wildlife shots and of course the portraits.

Steve, nice Swan series, espcially with the 21! The 100 mm shots may be a bit oversaturated? Makes the beaks look a bit unnatural in my eyes.

skyapad, impressive, I like the composition,

akul, nice detail

Ulff, great BW pp

Lovely shots cyra and thanks for your comments. The 100 MP shots have zero added saturation or vibrance and very little processing at all. I just cropped to 4 X 5, did some highlight recovery and resized for the web. These muted swans do have pretty bright beaks, but I suppose it could also be the Canon tendency to oversaturate reds that is coming out here.

Tamrac 5608, 5D2, 2.8/21 YC, 2/35 ZE, 1.4/50 YC, 2/100 ZE, EF 200/2.8L II, Gitzo G1548, Manfrotto 410.

The bag is always the most difficult decision. I have too many of them.

Part of the answer, I am sure, is just the size of the thing. One common reason for poor boke wide open is mechanical vignetting, which I doubt this lens has much of (although I have seen a couple of shots which indicate that there may be some exceptions to that). Another part is that they just tried harder Lots of money (high price) opens up certain doors.
