    Thanks Tom!

    The clouds and icebergs were moving rather quickly. The blue sky on the right was cloudy within 10 minutes of this capture. I took a quick series of shots for stitching the water and sky then took my time on another series for the penguins. It took about 45 minutes but as each frame filled with a pleasing display of penguins I snapped and moved to the next shot. These were manually blended with the sky captures before stitching. The longer you stand still the more the penguins forget about you.

    Re: Fun with MF images

    A few from today; Harbour City in Hamburg, Germany. It was a hazy, freezing day with some really beautiful light

    The first two were shot with an Aptus-II 12R on a Hassy 503CW and a 60mm lens. The others are off an Aptus-II 12 on a 645DF and 80mm LS lens

    I like that composition a lot Woody --- but my eye wants to trim the bottom off slightly to make it a square!

    Absolutely stunning at its most simplistic. The tones are perfecto! Use of fill lighting/reflector is well done under a difficult sun.

    Hi, Woody...

    Is this combination critically sharp?

    ...at all apertures?

    I like the color version as it has better tonality in the highlights, though personally I would add more vignette to it.

    Good question. In a word "no". It's best at f16 but not stellar at that. I was having some fun with the combination looking for a moody shot.

    The 300 by itself is a terrific performer. With the starting point at 60 megs you are better off shooting the 300 by itself and cropping - rather than using the 1.7x - if you want a 500mm point of view.

    Yair,

    Very interesting post. What strikes me is that the first image using 503CW w/60 seem so sharp and 3D, albeit difficult to judge on web and perhaps also due different light conditions of the shots.

    How do you experience the 503CW w/60 compared to DF w/80 LS as far as focus accuracy and sharpness of the images?

    Did the 503CW have a split focus screen for ease of focus, and was the focus screen used calibrated using the screws, thus for focus screen to most perfect match the sensor in back?

    Thank you

    Regards
    Anders

    Hi Anders,

    The 60 was set to infinity and f8, on the V series I find that when you have subjects such as that building you can actually see optical moire on fine patterns so you know it is in focus. For me personally it is much harder to focus on people, at least compared to let's say an RZ or the 645DF

    The body was a borrowed one with a standard screen, no adjustments or anything, just slapped the 12R on and that was it

    The lens I think is OK at f8 but to me it felt that it works best at shorter distances, like 50-200 metres. It doesn't seem to resolve details of objects that are farther away.

    Also, the edges are softer than the centre. Compared to the 80LS the 80 is much sharper overall and the contrast is a bit higher as well

    H4D-50, HCD 35-90mm at 50mm, f/16, ISO 50

    From a visit last fall to the Smokies. This is the interior of a kitchen at the Mountain Farm Museum in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It's a 6-shot HDR merge using Photomatix. Due to the longest exposure being 6.3 sec., there is some movement in one of the pepper strings.

    Thanks Joe. That was the first scene I photographed upon reaching Antarctica and probably the most dramatic.

    The B&W seems much more dramatic than the color version:

    Ed, stellar shot -- I am probably a minority here, but I prefer the color version! (However, I would prolly spend some time on local edits though, especially in the chunks on the hillside )

    Ed, spectacular shot!! Both the color and B&W versions are impressive, favoring the color one just a bot more. Those whispery clouds appearing to head in a vertical direction, contrast nicely with the horizontal landscape. It's just a thought, but I think personally I would like to see a little more "drama" in the B&W version...possibly with slightly higher contrast...but I know that runs the risk of losing detail and the lovely grey scale gradation in the shadows.

    This is great Sergei! I agree with Jack, the B&W conversion is excellent but the pose and composition is exceptional. Not sure what it is about the comp that works so well, maybe the negative space in the door against the model. Grabs your attention for sure.

    whoa... such nice stuff here! Lovely!

    One from me... an initial edit from a headshot session today (saxophonist). Still struggling with how to process these files for people, but getting better i think.

    It's a real balancing act Shelby. IMO, this one is getting a little over-processed looking compared to your usual stuff which has a really beautiful natural feel to them.

    The skin is a little too smooth and the eyes/lashes a little too crispy.

    Yeah... being away for dinner (and coming back to it) it looks overdone to me as well. One thing I'm learning with MF is that if you retouch thoroughly at larger sizes and then downsize quite a bit, the skin looks TOO smooth on the web.... too perfect.

    Much work left to be done!
