Kevin - The composition looks good, but on my monitor they are all over exposed.


Hmm... The tree appears over exposed, but it actually isn't clipping anywhere (the tree is peeling, the fresh under is as white as a piece of paper). The one of my daughter is intentionally that way. The other two shouldn't be over exposed. I looked at them on my work monitor and they seem OK here too.

Do they looked overexposed to anyone else?

So no news about the lens hood?

I was THINKING the same thing as I wrote that line... but the lens is going back to Australia...

Finally got around to making desert for my daughter:

http://didnt.doit.wisc.edu/photo/forum_pix/fredmiranda/105mm/strawberry_stack_blended_web.jpg

The Recipe:

D600 with 105mm f2.5 AI-S, K1+K2+K5 tubes (vingate Nikon), tripod, Yongnuo RF-602 wireless flash trigger, Canon 540EZ on tripod and old Nikon SB-16 duck-taped to a chair, both with RF-602 receivers, home made diffuser light tent, vanilla yoghurt, straberries, cream, and a piece of dark chocolate.

8 manual exposures @ iso 100, 1/60s f8 focus stacked in Photoshop CS5.1, almost ran out of memory on this old 32-bit XP computer.

100% crop - YUMMIE:

and the full image in case you have a big screen Here

looks tasty for a 30 year old lens with

WOW Peter this is great!!!

Great eye Ray! Yes, here it is for those who've been wanting to join the club. And it looks like a beauty.

Thank you Peter. If you are meaning Brazilian Portuguese books about Pompeii, I don't know any, all my books on the matter (3 about Pompeii and 2 about Herculaneum) are in English.
And I do recommend to all interested on the Vesuvian ancient sites this ecellent internet source, in some respects better than the books:

Jose - I was thinking about the book you should author and illustrate with your photos!

Lovely set of images Leighton. Sorry spring is coming so later to the Shenandoah Valley. California is being California with so many blossoms the air is fragrant with them. Of course, the downside is those of us with allergies are not having the best of times... I'm not complaining though...

The 28 f/2.8 AI-s is a perfect lens for your world Leighton. That focal range is definitely my favorite wide.

Peter (Wisconsin) I love your close work. Those images are stunning. And thanks for the link to focus stacking. I'll have to give it a try. Interestingly, the fellow demonstrating the technique was hand holding his camera. Until I buy a tripod that is the only way I'll be doing it and I doubt it will be more than two images...

Thanks Curtis, I'm enjoying this beauty that Reagan let go!
Here are two more from this morning.

Technically they are within exposure overall but as an example, In the first photo the leaves are perfect but the rose is way hot. Since the rose is the subject try using spot metering on the top petal. In your photo you have lost a lot of the detail in the petals and this is the the part of the photo you want perfect.Luckily the detail is still there, just lower exposure by two stops and see what you think?

Kevin, I went back and had another look. The first three really aren't overexposed but have a few blown out areas. The last one I now see was intentionally done, which I like BTW.

Having said this, it could very well be my monitor.

What Ray said... spot metering can help a great deal when doing work like this but remember, that with these lenses, spot metering will only work when you are using the center focusing point. It says so in the book...

Love seeing your homestead Leighton. You certainly live in a beautiful corner of the world, albeit one that yields quite a bit of snow in the winter. I grew up in Minnesota so I feel your pain... Or rather, I FELT your pain... no more...

Thanks Ray, now you know one of the things that drove me to this camera. As I'm sure you're finding out as well.

Thanks Curtis, we've had an unusual March. This time last year we had the broccoli, onions and potatoes in the ground a couple of weeks. If you know what's good for you, you'll stay in CA.

Cool shot Chin! I've always wanted to do this, but I can't seem to leave the farm at night!
