    [QUOTE=Jack Flesher;310014]Mark, I really like the last image in this series -- great energy!/QUOTE]

    Thanks Jack!

    I'm starting to come to terms with MF. It is such an amazingly different beast. I would not have thought twice about the shots of the girls jumping with my 1D. 30 years ago with my OM-1 I don't think I would have thought twice either.

    I'm even carrying my LCC in my pockets.

    An hour's walk/ski yesterday to Redfish Lake, predawn and about 5 degrees, hoping for a lift of the clouds that didn't quite happen.

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Thank you folks - I appreciate the comments.

    This was one of those typical Oregon spring days where the weather goes from overcast drabness, rain, snow, gale force winds, sunny intervals, more wind, more rain, grey again etc etc. I figured that I had to sit this one out because something was bound to happen at some point in the afternoon ...

    Definitely a case of f/8 and being there. I was quite pleased with this straight out of Capture One with just levels although I'm sure it would benefit from some local adjustments in PS.

    Not to mention that this is a long, long way from anywhere, and after all that driving, you might as well stick around a while.

    Shelby,
    allmost all the shots you post look really great to me, not only the composition but also the look you achieve-dont know how much is lens, how much sensor and f you have special post processing but they are just the right mixture of sharpness/detail/contrast and still smooth with very natural colors.
    Cheers,Tom

    Thanks Tom... these comments mean a lot to me () as the transition to MF has been a sometimes difficult one for me as far as processing.

    I've finally decided that each image needs it's own special "love"... and that has helped a lot. No recipe, no regular process. I tend to tweak the raw file to maximize the histogram and then do the rest of the work in ps... including occasional local adjustments using feathered selections. I do sometimes select faces and adjust contrast/curves... and then invert the selection and adjust the non-facial areas EVER so slightly such that the face pops a bit. But I try very hard to do this as subtly as possible.

    As far as color and b/w... I tend to go B/W unless the color really adds to the image.

    Other than that, I think that the Aptus II sensor is great at achieving a very natural looking result... skin looks fantastic with it. It's the reason I went with the II 6 instead of the p30, even though the p30 would definitely be better for my shooting style. I do also think that the mamiya glass has a nice synergy with the lower resolution backs (mine is 28mp).

    Thanks again... really appreciate the nice thoughts.

    Here's a few from yesterday while walking the beach at lunch. Shot with the 503CWD and 2,8/80 Planar CF w/CPL. Mostly at ISO50, 1/250s @ f/8 or so - I ditched the PM5 for the WLF and just guessed exposure. More in the Long Beach, NY gallery.

    Over a 2 week stay in West Cornwall, I was repeatedly drawn to St Michael's Mount and saw it in differing conditions from a number of viewpoints. Perseverence was rewarded with a return visit to shoot this idea.

    This is a Helicon Focus stitch of 7 frames with the 80mmLS lens shot on a 645Df and P45+. I really wish that I had tilt facility to get it all sorted in camera!

    Shelby,
    thanks for those info and I was expecting it to be a mixture of a good photographer, post processing skills and sensor/lens.

    And I admit that while I really like my S2 which replaced my Hy6-Sinar75LV I still find to see a natural look and skin colors from dalsa sensors which I love.
    I am even looking in the used market al the time for Leaf and Sinar backs and if I might find a "breaking" deal might be back in with a digital back and dalsa sensor. Keep on posting...

    Totally agree.
    And while I like those amazing landscapes your shots allways have a very "refreshing" and interesting something.

    Baxter,

    Great shot. I love not only the reflection, but also how the reflection pool mirrors the shape of the island.

    I wonder if this could all be emphasized more by cropping below the reflection pool. I like it either way.

    Best,

    Mitchell

    d3x vs ZD ....

    Dear all;

    I had the occasion to shoot a friends D3X vs my ZD, same model, same lights, different lenses and cameras. I shot the Nikon with the new 85 1.4, and the ZD with the old 150mm, this makes them both portrait lenses. I shot both a F9, this gave a ever so slightly dof difference, but no much. These are the resolution tests .....

    Nikon ( LR3)


    ZD (C1 6)


    Pretty unscientific, but as near as I can tell, the old ZD is doing a pretty darn good job. I only have the DB-Back license to C1, so the post processing is not equal, but from other tests, in LR, the Nikon conversions are pretty good relative to C1. The other way around does not work at all, the ZD demands C1.

    I would also comment, the the jpeg engine on C1 seems to do a bit worse job than LR, but the color differences are pretty close to what I'm seeing on screen. The Nikon seems to get the colors a bit better, but with a bit of careful post, can just about make the match.

    I'll get some up showing the B&W conversions and the ability to recover shadows as I can get around to it.

    nudes from a D3X and a ZD ....

    Dear all;

    This is what I typically shoot in the studio.

    If you could not tell from the title, if you follow the links, you will see pictures of a nude model. To me, they are tasteful, but your boss may not agree.

    That is why they are links. If this kind of image bothers you, don't follow the link!

    ZD

    Nikon
    https://dl-web.dropbox.com/get/Publi...jpg?w=8015a354

    These are the jpegs to keep things reasonable. If any one would like to look at a raw image file, drop me a note @ djonesii at yahoo dot com


    Moderator: I think this is OK etiquette wise for the board, if not, please let me know, and I won't do it again!

    Wayne,

    I love all of the seascape images. Each is unique and very serene. Was hyperfocal focusing sufficient to achieve the sharpness in the last image? Or did you have to use focus stacking? The sharpness of the rocks coupled with the softness of the sea make for an interesting contrast in textures.

    Joe

    EXIF says f/32 1.6" so I'd very much doubt it. This would a very tricky focus stack blend too with the random nature of the water flow.

    Very nice images Wayne!
