A few from a local walk this afternoon. I made the mistake of not taking a mask with me. The air is quite bad.

Heron at a local stream, I like its patience and concentration.

Hovering Osprey over water. It seemed to do this repeatedly but didn't dive into the water. I presume it was staking out a spot for fishing.

Yesterday's attempt with the 55mm f 3.5 micro and 180mm f 2.8. The peonies look nice (same flower in the early morning and then after the sunrise):

My friend works at the Arnold Arboretum, and she said that due to bark disease, they had to cut down many of their beech trees, but they still have some.

Samy, That little finder was only good for approximate composition, and starting fires. It dd nothing for focus. I have only used live view focus for copy stand work, stationary light-table product shoots, and converting film to digital with the EFH/NLP that Dean shared here. Otherwise, the focus delay on the back screen of particularly Nikon bodies (D7200 and D850 are much improved) made me choose not to use it in the field. Then I remembered shooting a series in my studio called "Land Pearls" Linked here where I had this beautiful 300mm f4.5 Nikkor that I couldn't seem to ever get anything in focus. I popped it on the 5D mkII and used live view. Suddenly was clear to me that the lens was fine, and user error was the problem.

Jim, live view is cheating Its not fun until you look through a fogged and very dim finder of an Ikonta folder and try to figure out focus and composition

So, that was very interesting. LR's denoise did an excellent job of removing the PDAF induced IR banding from my donor Z5 raw image. The banding can be seen as thin, regularly spaced dark horizontal lines on any large uniform background.
Because I know about it I can still see the odd minor artifact/remnant in a uniform grey sky after denoising - but if you didn't know banding existed you would never notice it after denoise has been applied. Now my interest in a Z IR camera has been raised again armed with the knowledge that any images (worthy of keeping)

Thanks Colin. I'll PM a little later after I go think thru the items in the link you provided.


Samy, love that bucket drummer. I do believe that this drummer has the most instruments of any I've ever seen.

An older shot with the 25-50 just to break up my subject matter postings a little.

Mary and others, thanks for the comments on those shots. Mary, the color is thanks to the dense haze in the area. While it helped the pictures and contrast, my lungs are still in recovery since I made the mistake of spending over an hour out and about maskless in that air.


Samy, that's not good staying in that air! Be careful out there. Seriously, rather sever and unexpected damage can sometimes be done in a short amount of time! I think this is one of the worst such air conditions I have ever seen. When we moved to Allen from Plano in '04, the smoke from the fire in Mexico City reached us and the smell of smoke was very intense. I can only imagine what you are experiencing! Stay safe!

Cruising Grand Street in Escondido is finally on, delayed from Spring by city road changes, they made the road ugly by removing a median with many trees, went to diagonal parking, etc. the usual mods to ruing a nice little boulevard.

The W Nikkor 2.8cm 3.5 came out for a stroll on the Z6 and the 70mm 5.0 micro Nikkor went along on the Z7.

These are from the 2.8cm at 8.0, vignetting added because I like it. An excellent filter cuts into the corner a bit when the Z6 sensor dances.

These are with the 70mm 1:5 Micro Nikkor, it is a lens head on leica thread mount but really easy to deploy: LTM to Nikon F adapter > Nikon F to Nikon Z Kipon helicoid.

This lens far exceeds the resolution of the Z7
