Good series, mcbroomf! What lens?

In the States there is a abbreviation for everything and everybody seems to know what they mean,
But which library is that nice photo of BPL. Let me take a wild guess, British Public Library in?

Thanks Michiel ... BPL = Boston Public Library. It's the Bates Hall in the original wing designed by McKim. Check out bpl.org

Paramount and Crosses were taken with a Canon 85L on a newly acquired Deo-Tech EF-Nex adapter, and the other 2 with a ZF 25/2.8 distagon and a Kipon T/S adapter.

A couple more in the McKim building










My natural tendency is to crop the top off this photo to eliminate the glare, but for some reason I find it gives me an idea of the size of the room, which I like.

Thanks Phillip... terrific eagles, and the pose you captured in that last is beautiful. I might lighten it up a bit though.

During the last couple of weeks I was traveling from Vienna to Hamburg via train. I tried to take some images from the fast moving ICE train. I was shooting on a bumpy train through a dirty window that had awful reflections. So, most of them turned out to be rather horrible. But a few were not so bad.

These were taken with the Leica 24mm Elmar and the Nex 7.

Phillipe Reeve, great Zoo captures!

Thanks for the info, Mike! The last ones are nice as well.

Some older ones from a fair.

a question for PHilber. Several years ago thru your posts I learned" Point and Shoot" shooting with a MF lens (set the camera at F8 ish and infinity) , the ideas was that the wider lens worked better. If you put a lens on a 4/3 and it has a effective length of x2, for instance a 35mm becomes a 70mm. Does this need to be taken into consideration in the "point and shoot" method? thanks a lot hope my question is understandable. joanlvh

Phillip - Nice set.
Michiel - Nice set with the FD Glass, i find the FD primes perform very well on the Nex.

A encore shot of the chair.

i agree, I like the windows very much and I like the car grill. Do you guys convert to b&w or do you set your camera to a b&w setting. thanks joanlvh

Joan, the DOF of a given lens remains the same, irrespective of which camera and sensor size it is mounted on. So it is just as capable of P&S shooting as a 35mm. If anything, because a MFT has a smaller sensor, it generally uses wider lenses to compensate for that, and thus displays more DOF than a FF DSLR.

I usually convert to BW in post (Lightroom). The hot rod was converted to B&W, -100 Whites (the sky was really blown out), +37 Dark Tones, +50 Clarity. The Clarity slider in LR is a dangerous one, but in some cases like this, it works wonders. The local contrast in things like the tires and suspension was dramatically improved by that.
