Great shot Steve. Welcome to the thread.

I look forward to some more of your work - the lens collection is terrific.

Ray - your venture into the ND world is very rewarding but will probably cost me money!!

Phillippe - I'll be in the Chamonix MOnt Blanc area in 5 weeks and if I can get any shots like yours I'll be thrilled

Dylan - why on earth would anyone live in Winnipeg? That's coooooold man! The Silver Efex conversion is very nice.

Americo - lovely daisies

Leighton - It looks as if that guy could sleep on a barbed wire fence!

Jay - nice shots and bad luck with the boiler.

The tonal range of this image makes it an absolute winner in my book!

Thanx for the comments and the welcome into the MF fold folks.

I notice you like a pretty blonde Curtis.

Well we don't always get what we want in life. So when a blonde and a brunette come into the viewfinder we get what we get.

Life throws us some curve balls somedays.

This appeared in my viewfinder while I was using the 180mm at ISO 400 1/1600 at f2.8

Subject not necessarily pretty but that lens is fabulous.

Dylan - It's definitely worth upgrading to LR5 if not for the improve spot removal brush alone. The radial filter is also quite handy as well as the the new basic tab in the lens correction panel. All worthwhile additions. I don't expect I'll ever use Elements again as I don't use layers, but who knows. And with the addition of the Nik plug-in LR is a killer program.

I love your conversion with the ducks.

I wouldn't say that Ray, I think it's very nice. This is when NIK would be VERY useful, when there's so much tonal range to work with.

Both of these made me laugh. Love the first one with that hair piled so high. And the poor guy sitting there taking it all in.

Well, I slapped my 85mm f/2.0 AIS on my S5 Pro (DX) camera and snapped 40 shots of my daughter. Not one, not a single one was in focus. I just can't do it. I shot a dozen or more at f/2, then f/2.8, then f/4 with none of them even close to being in focus. Only at f/5.6 did I get critical focus. Wow the screen on this camera sucks royally. I simply cannot tell when there is focus or not. The green dot is beyond useless. It does not matter at all if it is lit or not.

My Nikon FM2 is sooooooooo much better. I just love the screen on that camera.

When I had my D7000 it had the back focus issue that a lot of others had when it first came out. After I sent the camera to Nikon it came back fixed and once again I could rely on the green dot. How does your S5 focus with AF lenses?

No problems with autofocus lenses. However, I dont have an autofocusing 85mm lens so have not tested such an extremely thin DOF. I am not concerned too much as I do not intend to shoot digital at all for the rest of this year. I just wanted to try out these new lenses that I picked up the past few weeks on the S5. Certainly this trial was a failure!!!

Back to the FM2.

Thanx Leighton

I'm glad I put a smile on your face.

Manchester UK is full of interesting characters.

How about this for sartorial elegance? You would have thought they'd at least give him some shades to advertise.

Beautiful, I like the way water was exposed leaving the sensation of movement.

On my D7000, I usually rely on the green dot and arrows. I find that the solid green is not always the sharpest. Sometimes I need to be at the right flashing arrow and dot alternating to get best focus. Kevin, I think you have experienced the same. It does differ with which lens too.
Scott


I have had exactly the same experiences here with my D7000; most worh better at a blinking ( > O ), some at (O) and none at (< O).
Even the D600 works better at a blinking ( > O ) for some lenses, but most are spot on the dot (O).

LR5 is an excellent raw editor whose strength is in file management: getting photos in, basic processing, printing, uploading social networking, etc. with each iteration Adobe enhances the editing features. LR5's best new feature is the assorted image leveling controls in the lens setting. Really works well.


Photoshop doesn't offer me anything that I need beyond what LR does, except for the handy panorama stitching feature, so CS6 will be the last version I ever buy (thanks in part to their CC licensing scheme). With LR, I can quickly import, keyword, do a quick WB and levels tweak. and upload the finished images to my web site, clients, and stock libraries.

I'm hoping Apple keeps improving Aperture, because I will likely switch back if Adobe decides to go the CC-only route with the next version of LR.



But LR does not do layers, and that is the disconnect for me. Sure, you can get close with the brush tool, but features such as blending modes, real masks, luminosity masking, smart filters, content aware edits, etc. are not in Lightroom. The list goes on.


I'd rather be a photographer (and get those things right in-camera) than be a graphic design technician (i.e. the type of user Photoshop is actually intended for...)
