Keep up the good work everyone!

cams884 -- Good idea to start off with inexpensive film while learning how to use the camera. If you need help developing them at home yourself, please do not hesitate to ask.

Gregg -- Sorry I missed your post from the 1.2 tread. The Rokkor 58 1.2 is a very special lens and should be in every Alt shooter's toolkit. Do not get rid of it! If you're patient, the rest of the fast 1.2 lens could be bought for around USD$350.

Alpha_Geist -- Nice closeup shot of the beckoning cat. Mine is staring at me across the room...

Robin -- Beautiful shots of Piha and Rangitoto! Keep them coming...

Jon -- Good to know about the Imperial Valley alfalfa farmers. Love the dramatic shot of the sun at dawn. You should post more with the sun in them. It reminds me of the movie Independence Day.

Wordinlens -- Beautiful portrait shot. You must be a proud papa!

Almass -- It's about time you took the 28 v2 lens out from the wine cellar. Where's the 90 AA? Nice capture.

Michael -- #2 for me. So whimsical...

I've been grounded as of late due to rain and work, both very good things to me. So, didn't get to shoot much and decided to PP this shot I took at Stanford. Inspired by the renaissance art, I hope you like it...

50 Lux E55...

^^^ Great capture Kokusai! Light is just perfect.

I feel guilty of not posting in R thread lately. Quickly checking fabulous capture in the last few pages.
Almass: love the 'Umbrellas' image - perfect scenario to show off Elmarit-R 28
Robin: your "Auckland City. New Zealand' shot looks almost like my 'hood in Vancouver
Jon: sunny UK?!
Gregg: man, you keep this thread alive with your teasing show off of great R lenses! How do you like your FF A7?
Michael: I recall your 'kites on a hill' series from few month back. Glad you posted B/W versions.
Alpha_Geist, Kokusai, Manoj, Lieutenant Z and other; thanks for posting inspiring images!

Thanks Jack! I try...
And I do LOVE the A7. The more I use it, the more I like it! I've posted several images in the A7 thread, along with 1.2, and Zeiss threads, also!

Thanks Jack. Spring is upon us. Nice shot of the seedlings sprouting from the ground.

Gregg -- This thread is on page 2? What happened to your daily posting? Forgot to take the camera to work? :

Almass -- Nice portrait shot with the 90 AA.

I hardly do any landscape photography with a tripod. Carrying a tripod feels really awkward to me. Hopefully with enough practice, I get better at it. CC highly encouraged...

28 Elmarit-R ROM...

Kokusai,

I like this one a lot. It seems to have good contrast at about every level of detail, from the bulk of the trees against the clouds to the ever-more-detailed shadows among the rocks. I like the people in the shot, particularly how small they are relative to the environment. I like how the soft contrast in the sky balances the harshness of the rocks.

My criticism of it is with the color--which is pleasant, but after looking at it for a bit doesn't seem quite right. It is a bit too warm at the top right, extending down over the rocks in the central frame but not over the rocks at lower right. Also, the sudden shift from red sky (top right) to strong blue (just left of that) is a bit strong. I downloaded this and made a black and white version that stands out--although this may just be my bias, as I've been favoring B&W lately. It could also be that I've been living under cloudy skies for about the last 8 months so I might've forgotten what genuine color in the sky looks like...

Also, regarding tripods: I've gone so far as designing tripod backpacks but haven't ever found a way to actually get myself to use the clumsy things. What I do use, though, is a mini tripod: a standard tripod head bolted onto a large PVC cap. The tripod head can bolt onto the inside of the cap, which makes it rather portable. You do need to be flexible to find things to place the mini-pod on, or just accept a low point of view, but it provides stability that light sometimes requires without making me curse the thing at all other times like tripods do.

Cheers,
Jon

Jon -- Thank you very much for your feedback. I truly appreciate it. Your assessment on the color is spot on. I'm just now learning how to PP landscape work using LR5 with graduated filters and adjustment brush. The lower right frame looks weird probably because of the custom vignette I added in post. Also, great tip on using a mini-tripod. I may get a gorilla pod or something like that for portability.

Great captures there Mike! I've been thinking of trying out Oly's MFT offering and renting/letting the EM1. Possibly adapt some of my MF lenses on it. Thanks for sharing your Oly shots Mike!

One of the great temptations is carrying it by one leg, which is fine until you stumble/slip and you then find how painful it can be as the other legs act as a vice on your fingers, when you make contact with terra firma

I gave up a long time ago trying to find a camera bag fit for purpose for landscaping, so a technical rucksack with side pockets and straps I've found the best for stashing away a tripod and carrying it. A decent outdoor shop will carry a range of quality rucksacks and with their sage advice, you'll find the perfect ergonomic fit. You could lash the tripod onto the back of the rucksack, however, one day you could be ascending some steep stuff and feel the need to look up for the next hand hold/best line/how far away the summit still is and the rear of your head will make contact with the tripod head next time out you've now got the tripod head sans scalp and dried blood, encased in a protective neoprene pouch and need to lean out to see the next hold/ascent line up, the weight of the tripod/head has shifted your centre of gravity out and you need to grip a little bit harder onto the rock face, which if it's loose, will give you at best an unexpected adrenaline high

I know tripods are supposed to be black and I too frowned on the aesthetics of green, but Gitzo might have finally implemented a durable leg lock sealing system in this series and I never thought I'd type that.

Images with 28-90 + 1ds3 (hand held too!)






Easiest way to carry a tripod IMHO







Anti vibration ballast

i posted a bunch early on in the thread with the R 350mm, but that was on an old 4/3 olympus (e520): http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/895186/0#8428037
