    Hi, Guy... What ISO was that?

    ¿Is 32 seconds usually enough?

    ISO 50. I went a little longer on one but the fog was really rolling in and starting to be more fog than city. The image took on a orange glow of the fog which I liked so i left this certain look. To me it looks like the Ornage light is lighting the city like this. Kind of interesting. I was also shooting through plate glass.

    Nice work everyone!

    Got out the strobe and shot a few pics of the kids yesterday... not my usual stuff. The backlight is the sun in both of these, main light is a single strobe with an umbrella box.

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Never shot landscapes in my life as I never found an interest in it. *Went on a vacation and decided to shoot a little. *My concentration wasn't on trying to make traditional landscapes, but more the lines, texture, and negative space. *All shots were shot handheld. Only editing that was done was raw editing in Capture One.

    1.

    3.

    On the Next two, I preferred the lines when the photo was taken like this, .. again I know its not traditional

    Re: Fun with MF images

    On my way from a hard days work in the pixel mines and was greeted with this site on the road home.... even though it was 9 pm and 14 hours since I left home I "had" to stop the car.. When I see this it means I am am home.. but I have never really gotten around to stopping the car and taking a pic (people photographer you see ) Well the evening sun strafing over the peaks persuaded me that maybe I should stop...

    Nice! Especially like that you were able to get the public works folks to add your watermark on the road.

    Re: Fun with MF images

    working on a few more of my images from Monument Valley trip last month. Stopped at House on Fire on the way from Moab to Monument Valley. shot about 11:00am which worked out pretty good, the light bouncing off the rock face up into the overhanging rock formation. Pretty cool place, lots of interesting images spring to ones imagination during the short hike there as you think about those that actually lived in this place ..

    Wow step away from the forum for a couple of months and come back to all this eye candy. It is really cool to see the vast array of amazingly different, unique and inspiring work. Need to get my butt in gear.

    Don, this is an inspiring image. Even more so given that it is hand held.

    Have been thinking of a macro for the Phase 1.

    Well here is an image from the Phase 1 taken in our new but smallish studio.
    We have three step ladders but I like this one the most.
    It seems more appealing for some reason.

    Thanks Mal. While I'm primarily a landscape photographer I do add "nature" to the mix and what better way than to get in close. I love my Cambo however it doesn't offer the abilities that the DF does so their a good mix. I decided I wanted to get back into "near-macro" shortly after returning to the DF and was faced with choices of either the Mamiya or Phase One 120mm macro. My first thought was getting the auto-focus however after thinking it through and talking to people I trust (Ken and Dave) I opted for the older manual focus which has turned out to be the best move.

    Bottom line is if you're thinking about macro then look at the Mamiya 120mm f/4 as it's inexpensive (compared to other lenses) easy to focus (and I wear tri-focal eyeglasses) and not at all too heavy.

    I'm still searching for an ant or bee that's willing to be a mode....

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Don, Thanks for the advice re the lens choice for the Phase 1 macro.

    We have some really good Canon Macro gear, however when we travel with our motocycle and trailer, I have to limit what we take for reasons of weight.
    Also I just love working with the IQ files - it feels wothwhile to spend a lot of time on a large file where as with the smaller Canon files I spend just as much time and end up with a lesser result.

    I will start looking around for a lens -

    Do you use a macro rail and focus stack your images?

    Re: Fun with MF images

    I use the Phase One 120mm macro. No rail. Stunningly great lens, and it competes with my Nikon 105mm macro on a regular basis.

    I have built a nice collection of the Mamiya and Phase One lenses.

    45mm Probably gets the most use these days...
    80mm Nice but not my go to.
    120mm Very nice, used sparingly
    150mm oops, forgot this one. I do use it, mostly for portraits.
    105-210mm Can't remember the last time I used it.
    300mm Sometimes, but sparingly.

    Mal, glad to be of service. I'm a little uncomfortable going into depth here as I fear we're going too far astray from the "Fun with MF images" concept.

    I remember using a 100mm macro when using a 1DsII years ago and find this usage to be superior; of course it might be having 60 megapixels to pay with.

    Regarding tools - I have and use a macro rail (I actually use it more with the WRS) as well as image stacking. I've used a plastic water bottle cut in half to hold the model and reciently picked up a fly-tying vise to try a better way of posing.

    The great thing about this type of photography is that you're limited only by your imagination. I didn't actually see the bug in the previous image until I had it on the monitor.

    Interesting collection.

    I've been using SK 35, 72 and 120mm lenses with my WRS for years and decided that I would try not to duplicate those when the DF so have the 80, 150 and 300. All was going to plan until I picked up the 120 macro. Of all the lens I think my less used is the 35mm. I wouldn't trade any of them.

    The goofiest thought ran through my brain when reading this and just how different our subjects normally are. Most of my "portraits" are of great hairy beasts.

    If I remember correctly the lens hood was within 9" of the blossom. I'll keep better notes next time.

    It was a very dark cloudy day. The clouds were moving very fast. I anticipated extremely long exposure would make a nice effect. The wind blew like crazy I had to hold my tripod with both hands the whole time during a 2-minute exposure.

    Well seen and executed. Even though you shot from the road, that's not an easy picture to get.

    Re: Fun with MF images

    I'd like some advice on processing images for the web from the collective wisdom of this group. I see images from others that appear to maintain the subtle variation in tone expected in a good print. Here are two examples of images that produce marvelous prints, yet become blah when I post them. The pine trees print has a 3D quality that is striking. When I took a 17x22 print to my framer, he immediately ordered one for himself! The Canada geese on a calm lake has a beautiful smooth transition from pale blue in the sky to the pastel yellow haze of the lake; the geese are beautifully delineated in the print. I know that the small size of the jpeg impacts the geese, but the colors have suffered as well

    My normal process: convert to sRGB, 16 to 8 bit, image size 1200 pixels @72 ppi, save as jpeg. Thanks

    Tom

    PS If nothing else I'm convinced that it will be a long time before electronic displays replace prints!

    First, the 72dpi is meaningless. The web displays at pixel resolution only.

    I have found the biggest problem is the conversion to sRGB. The color gamut of the file and web just will not match and when you go from a larger gamut to a smaller one, the images is just screwed up. You can try different rendering intents--perceptual, relative colormetric, etc.--but it is always a compromise.

    If you are using ProPhoto RGB, it just has a hard time at 8-bit as the coordinate difference is too large to render subtle color difference and so effects like banding is common. ProPhoto gives you a large color gamut, but the downside is each color is further apart (a greater step between each color coordinate) and so it needs 16-bit to preserve subtle color changes.

    I really like that second image.
