Congratulations on the 645ZD purchase Guy. You have been talking about getting a MFD system for almost a year - that is considerably longer than normal for you - so good for you. I am jealous.
[QUOTE=robsteve;19860]We made a visit to Camera West this evening. It is a very impressive store with that old style service and most importantly, old style inventory.
Here is a Noctilux picture of Jack, just after he made a new purchase.
I VOTE THIS AS Jack's NEW AVATAR/Tres handsome.....All the Best, helen
Getting more photos on the street.
When I saw this I immediately thought....cool golf hole. But the lush green is ice plant which is not so easy to hit out of (if you don't want to break your wrists - oh can you tell that I've tried it before ) and you could only play this hole at low tide...very low tide. LOL
CV 15 on Garapata Beach.
Lot's of great instruction and printing going on. There is always more to learn!!!
The "Master" in deep concentration as he approaches a very slippery slope.

Another one of Handsome Man. Enjoy Helen.
5cm 1.5 Summarit. I'm loving it.
Thank you LJ. Yes, I was using the filter and as luck would have it I did remember to have lens detection/UV-IR filter selected ON here. A real sweet lens indeed.
that IR is hideous
Here is a MF image from The Mamiya 645 ZD camera. This is shot wide open which is 2.8 with a 80mm normal lens and ISO 200 handheld. Folks all I can say is you should see the 17 x24 inch print. It's amazing the detail
This is scary
Joseph shot with the Nikon D300 and 180mm and than Chris shot with the Zeiss 85 1.4 wide open
Okay, been really busy with the workshop and not much time to post, but just want to say that Helen is now my new best friend

M8, 50mm pre asph lux. IR, Color
What to you see what we shot after the workshop today. I took the remaining attendees (5) that are staying the night to the CA coast and they nailed it.
reviewing the shots now. Wow! Unfortunately, I don't have a wireless connection right now to post.
Beautiful and mysterious fairy land shot, Jim !
Check these out also
I will load up my M8 images later
Well it looks like Guy just posted similar shots in the MF forum here are a few of my versions. I'll let you decide what came from the M8 vs. D300.
I so wish we still had the printers here and hooked up. Honestly, printing large has always been intimidating and after the workshop I feel so much more confident in correctly preparing the files that I will now invest in a good printer and high quality paper.
Lovely shots Terry - glad you had a great time, and Guy, if you're reading this, that beach with the waterfall . . .. I want to be there!
Terry, as for large prints . . . . They're great, would you like some of the large pile I have here! Once you've filled the walls, they kind of accumulate!
What sort of printer are you aiming for?
Just this guy you know
LOL - that was part II of why I had resisted a printer was wall space. I guess my walls will be adjusted seasonally! I will get the Epson 3800 which we used in class and the prints were gorgeous. A side benefit being that Jack who is wonderful at printing has given the attendees good profiles for a printer/paper combo that I like.
Exactly, that was the point I was trying to make about Bobs spin on my IR image I converted to get a WB like he had and then went to town on saturation.
I have not done much with IR and learned at this workshop that a lot of the IRs posted are blends of the IR filtered and a normal color versions of the image. My next attempts at IR will be using this blending of the IR image with a colour image.

Terry: LOVE number 2 and 3 -- GREAT job!!!
One from yesterday.
However, take THIS kind of detail, color, texture, saturation, etc., and place this into the bigger context of the same shot Terry has just above, or the shot that Guy has posted from the Mamiya ZD, and you get that killer image. Only way to really appreciate that is to shoot/frame larger and to print really big to keep this "prime cut" as part of the final image. Then ones eye can gaze endlessly at nuances, but be kept from wandering out of the frame.
Really not meaning this as anything other than a viewer thought/art critic perspective. I love this shot. I love the other, wider shots too. Only way to get the best of both is in a BIG print, but handled with the careful eye for detail that this shot has. This is great stuff.
From Sunset last night at Point Lobos.
Amazing DMR sunset capture Robert, impressive.
Robert, GREAT capture! You need to print that one up big too!
Just got home. Hmmm
I want to go back to that beach. I think that is the new GetDPI.com Happy Place.
Many thoughts run through my head looking at that beach. Sure hope there is a heaven like that.
