Peter, the lake is wonderfully captured, your image should make a great large print.


thanks Georg. Thing is, I have never printed any of my digital images. Ever.

I've always had a web server to host images on, even back in the mid 90s when still shooting film, but it all went straight to the scanner even then. I made a few chemical prints back then, because people asked me to. Few ever paid me (we are talking $200 cibachromes I essentially gave away to poor race team owners, drivers and PR people), so I stopped doing that.

One day I will find the right digital image to make a nice big aluminum print. Until then, I am happy with on screen display. There is only one blank wall in my office, and that one can wait

I always wondered how photographers dedicated to panoramic images would present or print their work. Even todays large computer-displays seem small for detail-rich panos.
A fellow photographer used aluminum-sheets bent to a semi-circle to display his panoramic prints (taken with swing-lens-film cameras).

Steve - Hope you intentionally increased saturation, because that barley looks mighty green!



Hey Leighton,
You were right. I was in such a hurry to get some pix done before my trip to our UK Capital City that I rush the job and made a mess.

Thanks for the comments I appreciate it.

Here is what it should have looked like, still green before the mowing of the John Barleycorn bearded wonder.

Took a couple of butterfly pix in the back garden on Monday.

Using 500mm f4P with TC200 obviously on a tripod - you just can't hold that sucker.

Pic below of the kit. Using 35mm f2.8 @ f5.6

Butterfly's taken @f4 plus 2 stops for the convertor

When I got back from my sojourn to the big city (London UK) last night

There waiting for me was a 28mm f3.5 and an 80-200mm f4

Not used a manual zoom in years, not since I owned an 80-200 f4.5 and a 25-50mm (one of my all time faves)

So thought I give it an airing today, but noticed that someone yesterday perhaps had suggested the 80-200 f4 was not that good a lens.

Well I don't have a definitive answer to that accusation, but I do have a couple of pix from today that I think are OK

Let me know what you think. My favourite street performer at present. Back again to help us empty our pockets in appreciation of his skilled playing.

Crazy macro. 150mm of extension tubes with a 55/3.5 up front. Have to use a flash to get any light on the sensor. Will work out magnification potential soon, but it looks like 6:1. Crazy, I know...

I dragged the camera bag to work today. Shot a 8 shot vertical panorama with the 200mm F4 Ai. I liked the early morning light on these.

Then sailboat was taken after work also with the 200mm F4 Ai. THat lens has became my favorite these days.

A couple from dinner at the beach tonight - it was a wonderful day here in Seattle and the evening was just the right temperature to grab some Subway and head to the beach.

Thanks Burt - unfortunately immediately after this image she gave me a face and told me to stop taking pictures of her!
At least I got one.

The second of your three above is my favorite.

Thank's

Great shot Leighton ,Bert and John
Nice setup Kevin

this became cheap. .. thought it looked very funny looking in lens foot .. most of them screws is not intact there .. is probably not so easy to open if needed ?
but still hope that there was someone here who took it ...
for it was probably a very good price still $ 275
Thought actually put me on the price that maximum bid before I went to bed

Catching up on posts for last couple days. So many great shots by all.
Stokesey why does the Bee trigger the theme of jaw's in my head?
Leighton, wow on all three of those fog shots, your pain brought out some great insight. keep up the suffering would love to see more of those.
Great portrait shots also.

Wow Georg, these are terrific. What a difference between wide open and stopped down. I like both of these very much.
