Maybe then there should be a separate paid forum for professionals! Brilliant!

Here's one more weekender snapshot with the 58/1.2

Perhaps the influx of a certain type of (portable/affordable) cameras into the market has resulted in a new wave of "alt" users who are, in general terms, "weekenders". Just a theory.

Yeah, I kinda think that's right - at least for the most part. But those folks seemed to find FM last. I mean many other sites went weekender or were always so, years ago. It seems to just be getting here over the past 8 to 12 months.

Oh well...

sebboh, very nice. I like how the three stands out against the background. I must try to do something similar myself, clearly inspiring!

thanks, the 58/1.2 is pretty good at making medium format esque stitches.

Nice stuff Derek, Paul, mann_p..... too many to name them all

Well, usually your images are good.

These are very poor. Camera shake or motion blur all over, there's almost no in-focus areas, and the composition leaves something to be desired.

I know the lens is decent so...

What happened?

sebboh wrote:
handheld macros in poor light. focus was less than a centimeter from the front element. there is a fair bit of motion blur (camera and subject), but i suspect the lens also wasn't designed to handle such a short focus distance. i was mostly curious to see how dof and angle of view looked with such a wide lens for macro. i don't think you can get anything other than abstracts at such a short focus distance.

Nah, it's not like that. Go check his other work and you'll see.

But I do kinda wish the audience here were tougher! FM used to be like almost all pro level work with only a few such as myself, outside the gates of awesomeness. Now the vast majority or work being posted are weekender snapshots. Very saddening!


The future "Pro's" gotta start some where, may as well be here where the "Talent lives"

I like the color contrasts of the bridge and water and grass of the color version better.
But both are nice.
Yes detail is amazing. I could zoom in and read the bridge speed limit signs on my version.

4 frame stack, from Canon 5DMkII, Minolta Rokkor 58/1.2 and Kenko 12mm tube, of course at f1.2
Used Zerene stacker, while some halos goin' on, I kinda like it, still learnin', which is fun.
Of course, everytime I want to do macro play, it's windy, sigh, shrug...
This is a fast edit on a laptop, so, I'm uncertain how it's really gonna look.
I need to put in more time with this, in a correct environment, hopefully one day...
Anywho:
