Samy - Great set..loved the art figure..
Fransesco - Nice beach set
Nuno - Thanks. Hope you get some images of the aurora too
Lovely set..
Eric - Welcome back.Congrats on the addition..Thats a cute family pic there
Andy-loved the barn shots..which preset and tool do you use for the BW pp?
Rafael - Sorry about your Eucalyptus
Kevin - Nice. There was GIMP I remember earlier for Linux. Wonder if there is an evolution of that now
Georg - Thanks. Beautiful set. Loved the watch tower in the first with the PC
Reagan - Loved the second image of the pathway with the overhanging filaments.
Scott - Nice framing
Jeff - Thanks.
Though a lil' OE, it still is a great pic. Would love to see it after you tweak it.
Ken - Thanks. On sepia, darkened the exposure and increased contrast for darker tones. This is a web tool I use that uses jpegs but kills quality.
Nice macro set and loved the action shots esp the tennis one
Scott - Nice..thatís what you would call a retro barn
Leighton - Absolutely loved the 'Velcro' shot. Has a sense of entrapment about it

Pollen distributors - Reversed 50 1.8 e with a BR2 ring @f5.6











Their speed makes hand held focusing so challenging..

@rafael, I know how you fell about losing the tree
I lost 2 shade trees and 4 fruit trees after our last hurricane in 2005 but no damage to the house
@Scott, did Leighton miss one shearing after the beer
@Ken, Where is the woman that was sitting in that chair
@Francesco, the 180 was designed to take photos of physically fit people at the beach

Scott - I must have missed your sheep post. Loved them. We have a couple of wooly ones running around right now, but they're culls which we are taking to the sale barn soon.

Monday - That's the beauty with a lens like the 28 or 35, stopped down to 5.6 or 8 everything's in focus.

Francesco - Thank you, and I ABSOLUTELY love the first image in your set, very well framed.

Lester - Nice job capturing those bees.

Gimp is still around, but it is still not easy to use and its RAW handling leaves a lot to be desired.

I have set up a Virtual Box, but Lightroom runs even slower than it does on Windows 7. So far for anything critical, I will go into LR on Win7 (I have multiple OS' on this computer), but I would like to get away from Win7 if possible.

You may remember that I had a hard drive failure a while back. I pulled the drive and before I wiped it I ran a few utilities (in Linux) that showed that the drive was attacked via a virus of some kind. I took it to the IT folks at work and they ran the drive through some of the enterprise software they use to keep the campus network safe. The virus had planted itself in a part of the disk that 99% of the virus scanners can't reach. The only way to save the drive was to do a low level format of the disk, using Linux (Windows would error when it tried to wipe that sector), then I had to rebuild the drive. There is no telling how the drive was initially infected since we couldn't actually look at the software. I have a full time active firewall as well as a hardware firewall in my router. Heck, for much of my post-HDD crash internet surfing, I would go through a proxy that has its own built in firewall. Now I try to use Linux for nearly everything and Windows for only things that Linux doesn't have a tool for. What is interesting to note... I have far fewer things installed on my Windows partition, it uses 64GB. Linux, with 4x as many applications as Windows, uses 11GB. The other nice thing is that Linux takes 45 seconds to cold boot to where the HDD stops blinking. Windows 7 is 2 minutes, 26 seconds to the same state.

No it does not. It is a Mac/PC application only. What I am liking the most about Linux so far is the memory management and the amount of memory that the OS uses just to run. What this means to the average user is that Linux will run better on lesser equipment.


Well, that leaves the idea of using Linux out for me.

Alfred B. Maclay Gardens State Park

This was the driveway leading up to the house
He died in 1944 and his wife turned over a great deal of their property to the state
Beautiful blooms in the spring. Driveway is probably about a half mile up to the house
that overlooks a huge lake. 3 additional buildings in the back
Must have been a great place to party!

Need to do some catching up here as well

Andy, love the barn shot makes me think about the history this structure endured!

Rafael, The colors of the wild flowers are great against the sky, looks like they made quick work of that tree!

Kevin, Stunning shots of closeup flowers the b+w PP and composition of them are stunning!

Francessco, Congrats on the little ones birthday, loving the well done capture of the moment. Glad the weather behaved a bit so you can go out and see the beach!

Leighton the back light of the Heineken makes for a great capture . However the Burdock shot takes the cake and is simply stunning!

Reagan loving the peaceful park, seems very tranquil and well captured

Scott, Your Arcadia shots are making me want to do a long needed drive up the coast. I am also loving the barn with all the signs

Georg, Loving the architecture and people may have to look into that 35 if it is truly nice and small

Lestor, Amazing you were able to get the bee that sharp with their speed being handheld. Was it raw? Wish I could see more detail in their body

Quick run to the market with the GF to pick up some stuff for the week. IT is amazing how cheap this market is compared to city prices and the setting is what really sells it. Best part is it is only 2 blocks from our place. Karl -- https://www.facebook.com/pages/Karl-the-Fog/145697385477802 -- was still over taking the city when we went so the lighting was not ideal.

Looked in the morning and the thread seemed slow, everyone must have woken up later, and jumped on here

A trip to Arlington National Cemetery today, and used the 18 3.5 AIS. Also had couple of film options in the longer FL (S2 with the 8.5cm f2 and FG with the Leica 180 Apo Telyt), will have to wait and see how they turned out.

First of all the eternal rest of the many.

Due to an unfortunate incident, I had a lot of moisture in a phone and a camera. Popped them in a bag of rice, individually, and both recovered after a week of leaving them in the rice.

Guys, I have a bit of moist inside my 85/1.4 AIS due to the high humidity that was on top of the mountain of Pico.

What's the best way to dry it off? I left it in the sun during the day but it did not do much...

Reagan, maybe you needed to buy a white Chevelle instead.

Reagan wrote:
Nuno,I don't think I have ever commented on you images
but I have admired every one of them
I use the "like" button way too often but i am going to try and start chatting more often
The Chevelle has basically been put away for the summer just one more cleaning and maybe an oil change first
It has only been 400 miles since the last one
