Oh wait. I'm posting in the 43 thread and I have an m43.
Must be something like 4000 odd "Oops" so far then ...
Was at the right moment at the pancakefarm with peacocks.
He sure was trying to impress her.
It's more a case of "Mine's bigger than yours" actually.
I did photograph some ladys as well this afternoon and you're right.
But I didn,t see his's
I went for stroll the other day...
I only brought a 2GB card that filled up with video much to fast. Lucky I also had a 40D - those images and some more 4/3's are here http://tinyurl.com/dlpkaerazujune
I love my 9-18, but sometimes I feel a bit like an a$$ with the results I get...
Wow, took those about 2 years ago LOL. Yes, my FD 24/2.8 is the old Canon. In addition I have a 28/2, 35/2.8, 50/1.8 and 135/2.8. I also have a Nikkor 24/2.8 F mount as well as 35/2 which I like a lot (and a Hexanon 40/1.8). I bought the Nikkors to use with my Lensbaby tilt adapter primarily but find myself using the 35/2 with straight adaptor fairly often--all with G1 mostly though occasionally with GF2 and soon with G3.
Camera Model: E-3
Focal Length: 16.0mm
Exposure Time: 0.033 s (1/30)
ISO equiv: 200
I just got back from a trip to the mountains where I had planned to try out a new telescope. I brought the 300/2.8L, the Telescope and a new-to-me Tamron SP 28-80/3.5 Macro (27A). This may well be the sharpest zoom I own now. Needless to say i ended up spending most of my time shooting with it. I know, I'm easily impressed. but man...
For example if I hadn't processed these myself and thus knew better, I'd totally think they were just sharpened/over-sharpened water shots and therefore kinda lame. Lameness may still be granted them but not for any processing.
80mm f/4 - which is wide open for 80mm on this lens (it nudges via zoom to f/4.2 I think).
Here's two taken with the same 27A lens but in macro-mode. I wasn't counting on doing any insect macros so this is only available light, near f/4.0, and at ISO 100:
That flower is approximately 1.5cm ~ 1.7cm so I guess this little guy is about 8mm ± 2mm, in body length.
Slightly OOF but I like the image OK. (I wonder what this thing is called - they sure were orange... )
These are about 60% crops BTW.
Hehe, I love how I'm the last three posters all alone. :P
What, is everyone hiding from the fallout or something?
Here's some more with the same lens taken on the same day. I think these are still all at f/4.0 - again unless the zoom was at 80mm where it nudges it over to 4.2.
The Sun came out for just long enough for this one. It almost felt like an intrusion.
Tess.... I assume these are from Japan... such beautiful geography, architecture, and images. Where in the country were these made?
"Be kind, everyone you encounter is fighting battles you have no awareness of."
Yep, Basically I spent the day (from 9pm till 9pm) driving and stoping and talking to folks all around this area here: http://maps.google.co.jp/maps?ll=35....65a84fd0db30,0 well, and of course taking photos of everything that interested me. It was just me and the GF, some wine and some cheese... Good times! I do this about thrice a month - weather permitting - but in different places of course.
Awesome flash diffusion photoSmart42!!! GJ!
I hope that didn't sound put-down-ish tho. It wasn't intended to sound so. He's not causing any harm to anyone, he's a good guy!
hi, tesselator, I cant seem to see your images... are they still online?
also I have not heard 'nikkoru', any more details on that? I live in Nagano.
Yeah, they're still there. My server does a maintenance and back-up occasionally and goes of-line for that. It's usually over in less than 5 or 10 minutes tho.
Nikkoru is just the that Japanese pronunciation for Clive's last name Nicol. I bet you know of him tho. He's been on TV a bunch (which is actually how we met - on a show) and I think he even had a line of NewBalance hiking boots named after him.
Here he is in his sunday Best about 8 or 10 years ago:
If you're in Nagoya you should check in here:
http://club.japanphotos.jp/index.php which until a month or so ago was called "Nagoya Photography Club" Or let's meet up for a day shoot. It's always fun to meet new folks!
Just to keep it fun here's a 90% crop (same camera, same lens) of a little froggy I caught up in the mountains and released in a local park after not being able to figure out how to set up a shot on my macro table. This guy's got jump skills and a half!
This is wide open at the widest end of the macro (about 30mm) from about 1.5 feet away. The frog is small enough to easily fit through the mouth of a coke bottle - which was his transport container and home for two days.
Naw, purples are pretty, perplexing, and pretty powerful. Reds are rarely relevant, rude and rediculous. Reds can be radical but purples precisely put are perfectly pleasing.
But pinks don't stink.
Tessercator, you have posted some rather impressive photos lately. Impressive colour and detail all the way
I don't care what gear I have.

Yeah, the few last "rolls" I shot were using good lenses like that Tamron and these of course are with the Canon 300/2.8L with an extension tube or two on back. So, pretty hard for me to make my usual mess of things.
Sure appreciate the remarks tho, strokes are always nice.

@ Lovely series Tesselator
We didn't dust of the flowers lately
I think this Schneider lens is an chrome short M39 enlarger lens.
Agree, some enlarger lenses are da'bomb for flowers and like macros!
wowww... many image I found here. all good, quality, & worthy to show off.
Wandering through this thread is inspiring, exciting and humbling.
Comments & suggestions are always appreciated
Dramatic spider images! GJ!
NP, That 1st image is very interesting and the second one is like a movie poster for "Giant Spiders Invade NY" - Watch out, you'll be next! (or something).
