Great shots Georg. I can't wait to see fireworks over those locations!!!


I'm not fast enough to cover the turn of the year from both locations ;-) Still don't know which location I will or should choose...

Thank goodness for the "Like" button again.

Stopping by to wish everyone a Happy New Year!

Here's one from last week. Wish I had a more appropriate image but I don't think my fingers would be too happy working the MF lenses metal barrels in tonight's temperatures. Brr.

Happy new year folks! Ray, nice image of the cactus. But cactus in Ohio? Doesn't seem to go with the temperature there And no celebration pics here either, too cold and windy to step out into the new year

Here's a couple more of Baltimore churches instead. (BTW Georg, I did remember the one of the church with the whirling snow from last year, thanks for posting that one again). For both of the churches below I think these were the best possible angles with the 28 3.5 PC in trying to get the entire church while at the same time minimizing the "urban furniture", I think the first one the lens was shifted diagonally up. One can only back up so far before a wall gets in the way in these settings

The Holy Rosary Church in Fells Point, right near the pier where Polish immigrants started arriving in the mid-late 19th century. This link has the history as well as a much older picture of the church without the "urban furniture".

Here's the modern day photo with the 28 3.5 PC.

Next is a German Catholic church that is apparently shuttered for the last couple years in the Washington Hill area, not far from the one above. This one has an even older history, the first construction may have begun about 1850s, supporting German immigrants that arrived in the mid 19th century. Here's a link about the historic significance of the church:

And today's pic of the church using the 28 3.5 PC.

Tried to get a roll or two of film today. The few shops near me were all out. Way bummed.

Great shots everyone. Have had to rely on the like button with as sick as I have been. Happy holidays to all!

Samy, the cactus is an indoor plant at the in-laws. Your church series is intriguing and well down. The PC lens is most definitely the perfect lens for such uses.

Samy, the churches in Baltimore are really penned into tight spaces… But I'm sure it wasn't the builders intention to frustrate photographers ;-)
Nice work with your PC 28/3.5! I like the almost shining big round window on the Holy Rosary Church. You could have "saved" the lower parts of the church by shifting down, shooting the basement and stitch both shots together. This technique works best if the pictures are taken from a tripod. Will post an example in the next days.
St. Michaels is a tough subject as well - the view shown on the description page (thanks for sharing) might be worth a try.

Andy, another very impressive macro-set! I like especially the last "portrait".

Ray (from Ohio) - the Cactus looks great in B&W. I really like kinda abstract nature-shots.

Kevin, good to hear that "Harold" is up and running again! I hope, no, I'm sure you'll find some rolls of 35mm-film.

A happy new year, health and nice photo-opportunities for all of you!

I'd choose the "Kanonsberg" ("Cannon-Hill") overlooking the now closed theatre-stage as my point of view for this night. Moved a bit away from the cannons to get a better view on the surrounding space. At first it looked quite good, but then the crowd came up on this hill
It was a mess - crackers and rockets all over the place, folks obstructing the view, smoke from "bengalos" (bengal lights) literally smoked my view…
Anyway, here's a shot from this night:

Georg, very nice fireworks image. Your previous image of the cannon is great, Looks like it is aimed at taking out the clock steeple.

Samy, more nice church images.

Ray, Jay, and Chin, all nice images.

Leighton, love the lamb/sheep images. This one is worth repeating. The facial expression is great.

My mother taught me not to stare
But stare I did, because it simply wasn't humanly possible
Dazzled by flashes that went on one after another
Enthusiastic some frantic waves to get him to look this way or that
Photographic gear were pointed at him from all angles
An enterprising individual even leaned over the front of the cab
Camera freely at the end of an outstretched arm
Before the marauding steward gave him a polite nod
Profuse apologies scattered back and forth between guard and offender
Only in Japan my nostrils flared
And then I saw his eyes flicker, cheeks bulged
Aha, right in my domain of expertise
A stifled yawn

Andy - More nice macro work. I like the second and last ones the best.

Georg - Very nice shot, but I like the B&W one I saw on Flickr better.

Dan - Lovely portrait of lovely girls. I assume they are your's?

Scott - Thanks! I liked how her head was tilted a bit.

Chin - A great capture and a great write-up!

Coming down the "dump road" heading back home. Which by the way, you can see just above the poll with the transformer on it. Those are the Allegheny Mountains in the background.

Weasel, what a nice double-portrait! I really like the light - it looks really "natural" and well balanced against the background.

Chin, love the concentrated expression of the train-driver.

Leighton, very nice view over your neighborhood. Looks like a cold morning, just missing the snow.

Scott and Leighton - thanks for your comments on the fireworks-shot. I like the B&W-image over at flickr better too, but it was taken with my Fuji (second camera at work last night). I just got told that the "Cannon-Hill" looks like a giant garbage dump in daylight ;-)
