Mark, Arabica it is, you may be right about the altitude. My friend who is an agronomer was telling me that 5000 is old wive's (farmer's?) tale and that we should be able to plant higher, on the other hand they might as well keep believing it as this preserves cloud rain forest. Rust has been a big problem and the corrupt goverment has done nothing about it, wait until they loose that tax income. The country seems to be at least keeping its tree cover. This is the middle of dry season. We are at 14 deg north.


Thanks Rafael,
Today seems to be a learning day for me, coffee and old nick-names for Marajuana.
If I remember correctly the limit for +/- 15 degrees is about 2,000m and above 1,000 for best quality. But if an old wives tale preserves the natural forest I am all for it.

Now another question. I have a free day Sunday, what lens should I go walking with?

Love your scenery shots Jose and Rafael.
When will I leave Ohio?



I agree Chuong. Beautiful images by you both. Rafael the vegitation is so lush! Jose, love the vineyard images.

Chuong, maybe we can get out of our respective state once the snow melts!

The person interested in my D7000 is supposed to pick it up next Tuesday. So if he buys it I will be down to my film cameras until I buy the D600 or wait til the D7100 comes out. I am very heavily leaning towards the D7100 but I have that nagging draw to full frame


Do it do it do it do it do it!

Thanks Scott. I thought it was going to be a bust as I only had about 20 minutes so I felt very very rushed. It was also slightly misting on and off and I had not brought the lens hood.

This was the first time I've ever even been near the EMP since it opened. Where it's at in Seattle is kind of a tourist trap which I tend to avoid.

I also found out that there is a Chihuly glass garden located there as well, but you had to pay to get in and they blocked off almost all views from the outside except for the ~20 ft. tall yellow glass "tree" that I was just able to see.

I'll have to get back there again with my full complement of lenses.

John

Forget about that, think of the huge viewfinder.

Scott, Georg and Rafael, thanks for the comments!

Georg, the beach shot is a wonderful composition.

Nancy, I really like the beach silhouettes.

Curtis, great flowers and the Citroen is very cool.

Tony, glad you're feeling better. That's a very nice b&w of Alicia.

Dustin, really nice perspective of the moon and upper Half Dome. Was that taken from Glacier Point?

Jose, I really enjoyed seeing the Pompeii series.

Ronny, congrats on the 180mm!

Samy, very nice bokeh shots.

Ray, gorgeous shots with the 85mm.

John, great perspective on the Needle and the EMP reflections are beautiful.

Rafael, your El Salvador muse has been very kind. Great series!

Chin, your killing me with your PC-E shots. I don't know how much longer I can hold out!

Loaded question here sice Tony is trying to sell his 105 1.8. How do you think the OOF background compares between the 105 2.5 ais and the 105 1.8? Much of a difference?

That was pretty funny.

Seriously Ray, whichever camera you choose, you'll continue to make fine images!

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


Whatever opportunity you have to avoid Ebay do it. I buy and sell on there and anymore it is waiting for the shoe to drop. I've been screwed as a seller and as a buyer. There is no reason you can't sell that nice camera on FM for $1400 and end up with the same money. The fees on Ebay now end up being 9-10% when you add it all up. Sometimes things won't sell on FM but you should try it first. Craigslist is an option but MF glass does not sell well at all, at least in my area.

DC was under self sequestration so Baltimore was a better option to check out photo ops today. These are from the Canton area that keeps on developing. It was a cloudy chilly day but I bet during warmer months this place is very alive.

35 f2 OC and 135 f2 AI were the only two lenses to come along. Some of those boats would be better framed with the 85 1.4, I realized.

35 f2 OC:
Waterfront property in Canton.






Lots of boats waiting for the summer.






135 f2 AI:
A lighthouse in Canton, with the landmark Legg Mason building peeking in from behind.






So sweet. Indeed.

Also, the local sale on my 105mm 1.8 fell through, so it is back on the B&S. I have also lowered the price. It's now a "steal" at $425!

http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1191144/0#11382674


I've been shooting the last few days with this lens and it has performed beautifully. I seem to prefer the 105mm focal length which should be obvious I guess since I own five MF lenses at that focal length. The f/1.8 is the largest lens but it balances beautifully on the D700. Today I did a bit of shooting with a couple of extension tubes attached, the PK-11a and PK-12 at a local nursery. The nurseryman told me that the best day to come is Friday afternoon when they take deliveries in advance of the weekend. I got so many GREAT shots that I'll be busy for most of the day processing them. Fortunately, since they were shot with tubes, they won't ALL end up on this thread... But for folks who visit the Shooting with Tubes thread in the Macro World forum, you can expect to see a few of these as well.

Here is one as an advertisement for Tony. He is offering what appears to be a beautiful lens at a very fair price. The lens is a winner folks.

A few more, these are around the American Can Company building on Boston Street. The building is the anchor of the Canton area. All three images taken with the 35 f2 OC.

The sloping street behind the building.






Some colors in Canton.






And the sign in front of the building.
