And all I can hear when I read this is "Have you rehabilitated yourself, kid?" in Arlo's voice.

Eddie,

Your joke reminds me of a real life experience. In 1988 or 1989 I was working for OMC, Evinrude/Johnson Outboards and Cobra Stern Drives. One Sunday I was heading to the Stern Drive plant in Jackson, TN and had some time to kill so was taking a leisurely drive from Nashville on the two lanes. Nice, cool day with about 1/2" inch of light fluffy snow on the ground and I was taking my time driving the speed limit (for once).

Well one of those "characteristic" old small town southern sheriff pulled me over. Pot bellied, revolver in a flap over holster, thick southern accent, big hat, etc.... My first thought was great, this Yank won't ever be heard from again and I was nervous because I couldn't figure what I was doing wrong.

He said in a thick southern drawl, "Son, don't know if you know this or not but that white sh!t is snow, and it's slippery. I'm gonna have to write you up for Too Fast For Conditions. License and registration." Handed him my Wisconsin drivers license, the rental car papers and waited for my poison. He didn't get past the rear bumper on my car before turning around and coming back to the drivers window. "Son, you live in Wisconsin all your life?" Yes Sir. "We'll slow down and stop encouraging the locals, they just don't understand this sh!t like you Yanks do!"

And I was off, no ticket, nothing. But I did drive slower that day.

Dan

Oh, and some things I came across that reminded me of a few battles folks here have fought against some copyright infringers

Well..... that being the case (and I've no reason to doubt it) we will need a radical improvement in disk I/O to make it usable. By that I mean “real” I/O – not just fancy caching.

Oh, and Jim …. please slow down some – just a little – your last schedule update made me tired, and all I did was read it.

Jim.. TAKE NOTE. Some of the truest words posted on this forum

Nick. Your landscapes just take my breath away. The clarity of the air helps but that bloke behind the camera certainly adds that little something

Tim


Thank you Tim – your too kind.
When we do get clear days up here the quality of the light is exceptional, as you can see. As for the bloke behind the camera - all I can say is that it was quite embarrassing just how long it took me to realise that standing behind the camera, and therefore well out of the way, hugely improved results.

Thanks J-A; you're too kind. The vivid colors you liked were are courtesy of PP white balance work in LR. The various ambient light sources typically found at an airport can make achieving proper white balance difficult. Gratefully, LAX's ramp lighting is not as bad as other major airports.

Maybe you should try O'Hare at night. Monday night it will be about -20.

Can a Viper strike at night?

Tim that link you posted to the Phase One review is quite fascinating. The price is mind blowing, but then so are the images! I have never seen landscape images with that much depth and detail.

$44,000 is a hell of a long way to go in price for images like that! I'll keep scrounging my pennies for my 5D Mk III and 24-105 one day...

Even though the pics are just lowly jpegs, you can really see the amazing detail. E.J. is also a very good photographer. Bought my first used "L" zoom from him.

I'm curious as to why you chose ISO 160 and not something lower given you were already shooting a 10 second exposure? does 50 or 100 actually harm a shot like this?

At the ISAP symposium in San Diego a few years ago, the Canon rep suggested that ISO 160 (and multiples thereof) were "native" for camera's like my 5D3. That a "native" ISO of 160 would give as good or better IQ than ISO 100. I can't officially or formally confirm, but I've been using ISO 160 ever since and have had good results. All that being said, I don't think it would have hurt a thing to have used ISO 50 or 100 - just a habit for me to go with ISO 160.
