That tree is incredible...what is it's name?



James, this is an amatl, or amate, or higueron tree, it is a Ficus "Ficus insipida", a large fig tree that produces large good looking and inedible figs. Insipida means with no taste. This tree is very common around rivers or lakes in Central America.

Last day for Nikki in Seattle. Here's a few. Images to Leighton later tonight for updating the blog.

I have a friend who took a shot from her hotel and she must be right down the block from where these were taken. I will have to tell her to go to the EMP. Silly question, but what does EMP stand for?

Love all of the shots. The colors are so vivid! This one was my favorite.

Also, the local sale on my 105mm ƒ1.8 fell through, so it is back on the B&S. I have also lowered the price. It's now a "steal" at $425!

I promise, this is the last (Ray is the guilt for this )

What about D600 dx crop vs D7000?

Of course I used the same lens (135/3.5) + tripod + remote cable and same setups for each camera, and live view was used for best focusing. Both at ISO 100.

Well here there is a surprise for me because D600 upsized image stands very well against the native D7000 image, if not contrastier (!?):

No surprise a downsized (to the D600 dx crop) D7000 image looks like similar to the D600 dx crop:

Thanks for another great comparison Jose. It seems the D600 handles the CA of that lens a little better. I especially noticed it in the type on the last two shots.

Thanks Curtis, I have played around with the saturation and hue sliders for cyan and magenta. That may be the best way in PSE.

Here's some bokeh treatment, first with 55 1.2S, the next with the 105 1.8 AIS.
http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/ufiles/65/780365.jpg



I like this one Samy.
As far as the CA, there was a new slider added to LR in version 4.3 that's just for CA. I've used it a couple of times and it works great! It's located in the lens correction module under the color tab. You can't use the hue sliders to get rid of CA, as they change the whole image.

Love this one Ray, and congrats on the new D7100!

John sorry the flu hit you the same time as Nikki, what a bummer. At least you were able to use her some and with fantastic results!
I LOVE these three, they would make wonderful large sized prints to hang together on a wall.
I'll have your blog post up soon.

Considering the low usage, I would say it's a very fair price.

Thank you Tony.
It could be a mistake by me, by as far I know the setups of both cameras were identical, ilumination the same and both shots converted (no edit) from VieNX2 to tiff then resized for internet in CS5.

Alternative pano, this time with 4 horizontal shots. Less town and more Vesuvius + sky than the vertical pano.

Very nice pano Jose. I'm assuming the snow covered peak is the "new" dome that grew after the initial eruption?

Thank Leighton.
I dont know, but what I do know is that in 1944 there was the last notable eruption, fortunately far less violent than at 79 A.D.

The 'dome' is an illusion from the angle that Jose shot at. It's actually the wall of the caldera in the middle, the dome used to carry on up (if you imagine that the left side of the mountain carry's on instead of flattening out). In the middle it's a huge hole.

Thank you Mark for the clarification.
In fact I even visited the crater border at around 1,100m above sea level. Next week I will post some shots.

I am looking forward to seeing them! The ones you have posted so far are excellent and the panoramas very well done. I hope you don't get too distracted by your new toy though.

This may be the last posting of the trip before I return this weekend.

It was time to revisit the coffee farm, coffee raised me and paid for my schooling at CAL. Our farm was nearby, but one of the best looking farms I know belongs to my brother's in-laws. Here is the volcano it is in, the farm starts halfway up and ends at the top, over 5000 feet people do not plant coffee and it is virgin forest. 2/3 up the way on the right side is the little house we went to. At the bottom is a modern coffee mill.

A crop of the mill, this was with the 50mm 1.2, the lens I used the most this day. That is cofee beans sun drying on the concrete pad.

A Curtis style rendition at the house, this 50 1.2 has good mountain bokeh at 1.2.

Now the 16mm 3.5

Someone here knows its name?

Edit: a friend of mine, a botanist, has identified the fruit as probably the Scarlet firethorn.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pyracantha


They look like Cotoneaster to me not Firethorn (Pyracantha) although they are very closely related. I didn't see any thorns in your pic and as a kid we used to eat the berries ( a bit dumb since red berries are usually best left alone!) and the firethorn was avery prickly customer.
