Ronny, I like how the plane of focus slices through the shots. It makes clear how difficult it is to work with such a DOF.

Thanks Philippe and kwoodard.

Yes this was shot in broad daylight. Used the Big Stopper (10 stop filter) for this.

Philippe, great composition on your shot above. Also the lady on the dark background adds so much to it.

Craig,

Your last juniper shot motivated me to visit your Flickr site and roll through many of your shots. Very consistent high quality and great variety in your work there. I'll come back and visit it again.

I have to do more B&W with my D800, it really excels at this!

Very nice images as per usual guys

Just wondering if the new X & E mount Touit lenses will be able to post on this thread?

I have an X-pro and was quite excited when I heard about the new lenses. Will be interesting to see how much of that "Zeissy" look they have.

By "definition" Touit lens pictures should belong to Zeiss Lens Photos and Discussion. I'm also waiting pictures from them, based on Lloyd experience both of them are quite good. I know it sucks to subscribe to two threads, but due to getting ZA lens I'm also following both threads.




Lot's of great photos posted since I was last time here. Specially liked some recent B&W work (Bob's Yosemite and Manu's coastal D21), once I got bored being outdoors I feel tempted to try some B&W processing.

Nice one Samuli. Do you do photography for a living and sell sceneries as prints, or as only as a a lucky hobby/business bonus or not at all?

Edit: Had a look at your hompage.
Does Porrasjärvi mean Reindeer Lake (my grandparents house in Pajala had a place named Porrovaara close by, meaning, I think, Reindeer Mountain).

Thanks. I don't do anymore any "pro stuff". I already ruined one thing I really liked (computers&coding) by doing it professionally and I'm not planning of ruining photography as well. From time to time I sell some images, but that is not my motivation for photography. Also I have been involved on some nature preservation stuff via my photography, thou not much.

Last year I started huge project, which will last about decade or so; I try to photograph the beauty of nature preservation areas in Pirkanmaa (Finnish wiki-page has more info, but is in Finnish). Almost all photos what I have posted here are part of the project. I'm not so good in geography and to my surprise there were quite many MORE cities in Pirkanmaa that I did know of. Other surprise was that many of the nature preservation areas are in lakes. Due to this I have been learning skills to shoot from boat at this spring and summer, despite my irrational fear of being in small boats I also started coding the functionality of presenting nature preservation areas, but didn't yet have time to code anything else than nature preservation location functionality and functionality to show them on map. And added quite many of the nature preservation areas. So work is under progress, most likely I don't have motivation sit indoors in computer coding before the winter so don't expect any progress... link to work under progress: http://www.vahonen.com/photos/locations_show.php?LocationID=1001

No, Reindeer Lake would be Porojärvi. Porras = step (like the steps in stairs), they maybe have named because the 3 lakes form some sort of steps how water flows from each lake to lake below it - honestly I don't know why they named it like this.

In word "Porovaara" the "vaara" doesn't mean mountain but big hill, which is not high enough to have zone on top without trees. If it would be high enough to have zone without trees on top of it would have "tunturi" in the end of the word. On geographical point of view there are no mountains in Finland - however word "mountain" is used in some place names (it's "vuori" in Finnish), however these are just hills, which have fancy name...

This pic is awesome, wow!
I too understand your idea of ruining a good thing from making it into a work related thing!

Ah, I've never seen it in writing so I only presumed they spelled it porras, but porovaara it is then. And I struggled to find a word instead of Mountain as I knew it is not much more than a hill. Reindeer Hill. I don't have time to comment further as I'm off right this minute!!
