    By the way, she said yes!
    I have 4 big Metz flashes - I use one wired for fill-in below the camera,(which is all you would need here) one hand held for main and have two for background.

    ...but my 4Kg Hassy-with-zoom is a bit heavy one-handed!

    I have, today acquired a GH2, which I can use with an SCA adapter with the 4 Metzs..but it will be a great camera for kit shots.

    I have been too ill to use my camera (I had a head scan yesterday) and the Metz kit stopped working with my H3D11-50, and I have not tried it with the H4D-60... I can test the kit on the GH2 and try to work out if I need another SCA.

    I did mount the flash on the bottom of the pistol grip - but, with 4kg weight of the camera and lens, it works better with the flash on a strap round my neck - a mono-pod would be another option. For seated diners (e.g.wedding reception) the fill needs to be quite high - or the table cloth can make a good fill reflector.

    I'm with Graham on this one, his looks more natural to me. That doesn't make the warmer version a bad image but the place doesn't look like that.

    Re: Fun with MF images

    A couple passing through West McDonnell range in Australia's Northern Territory.

    Six shot stitch using vertical 72mm XL exposures:


    Ormiston Creek: Two shots shifting the back 20mm right and left on Rodenstock 32mm then cropped to 617 format. The lens gets pretty soft at the edge of the image circle but plenty useable with some tweaking. Not that great a comp but I love the ghost gum trees.

    Nice ... but for snow to look really convincing (and distinguishable from icing sugar) is is nice to have some snow in the foreground at high enough res for the texture to be evident.

    ...of course I have not see the full-res original.

    Maybe "fun" is not exactly what this was as some of these structures remind us of some very dark days...

    Today in Berlin. Aptus-II 12 on Arca-Swiss Rm2D and SK 43mm Digitar

    I love this light. I have an image of mckinley with similar light as a storm cleared, it looks so surreal. Harsh but captivating.

    Nice!

    I was wondering about the visible falloff in all of them --- since it's so prevalent in every image I assume it is artistic intent. The ones that looked problematic color shift wise to me were the last two with slight cyan and magenta ringing in gray sky on both (on second look, the 1st, 3rd and 4th have a slight amount too), but then there isn't much saturation in any of them. I assume it's some new automated software tool, but we'll just have to wait for Yair's official commentary!

    Hi Yair,

    I like the sound of that! Leaf engineering has definitely made the difference in these new backs from Phase. I know there are other improvements, but let's give some credit when it's due.

    Good point, I'll look for some good opportunities to exploit that.

    This does more convincingly look like real snow - as you can see the texture... not just in the foreground.

    A panorama of Bluff in the south island of New Zealand, taken looking north west from the road up to the lookout on Bluff Hill. Bluff is a seaport and the southern-most town in New Zealand, and was one of the earliest areas of New Zealand where a European presence became established in 1823/24. It is the main gateway for NZ ships heading down to the Antarctic. The harbour is also home to the Foveaux Strait oyster fleet. Bluff oysters are renowned for their succulence and flavour, and are considered a delicacy nationwide, with Bluff holding an annual oyster festival.
