Shot this down near Colorado Springs last week. And yes, this time I'm posting medium-format.
Still like the 70's color look Justin!
You allready know who is the poor person how needs to pose if I get a new lens...
this is with the Rollei 50mm AFD (image is cropped however) and I think I really like this lens. I cant judge sharpness yet but its nice to have f2.8 and I find the image rendering and bokeh very smooth. I also like the FOV of 50mm.
that was a blad shot, raw.fff, un-seen by C1. i just ran a very quick process using flexcolor, i'll resurrect my copy of Phocus and see if that will help
Really small landscape in my front yard
I think that one of the Buffalo made a nest in our BBQ. I moved it out and the mother Buffalo took her young to safety to prevent the owls from attacking.
It is really rough out there.
I have the opposite issue a lazy dog with two Doves trying to nest on a outside speaker. Now you would think having a BIRD DOG around the place this stuff would NOT happen. I'm firing him and replacing with a Bobcat.
A three shot series from a Wyoming aspen tree. Shot with the P30+, Mamiya 150D, and extension tubes.
I have only one word for you: Brilliant
Justin, lovely colours and texture
a bit of playing around
for the second attempt, i exported a dng file from Phocus, then used camera raw to process (I couldn't get C1 to see the dng file, but this was after a couple of glasses of Fiddlehead Pinot). without using the first image as a reference, it came damn close, surprising me. tried to bring down the highlights they read about 248 or so, but not much detail there
This image is a good case for a split exposure adjustment and export, and recombine with layer masks in photoshop. I do it all the time to recover hot spots.
On a more compositional side, the image doesn't do much for me. There's no interest or dynamic balance, just a hot propeller dead in the middle. It's definitely not a bad image, just not terribly memorable either. Hope C&C is welcome, if not, disregard the above.
thanks for the comments, all c&c accepted
Contax 645 with a 140mm lens.
I was too lazy to replace the portrait lens with a 120 macro for this shoot.
That is quite a stud! LOL
Shot these a few months back at the Loveland Feed and Grain building in Loveland, CO. Can you tell I'm experimenting with color? C&C welcome on all my stuff as well.
Great shots on this page guys, and Kurt, I love the B&W treatment. Nice perspective and DOF on that shot. Here's a test shot I took for a local watch dealer who's looking for better images than he can get in house. Hope this one lands me a paying gig FWIW, this shot was pretty easy but some of this stuff is NOT so easy to light. Still wondering how you capture a black carbon fiber face on an all black watch. I do know that the hands should be set to 10:10 (and they were). By the time I got around to this one I forgot to reset the hands.
Sandy and I went in search of wildflowers this morning however we figure we're either too late of too early. Did come away with something.
Took several saguaro images today this is just the first to be worked up. Yeah you guessed it, Cambo RS1000, P45+, 72mm lens and dark red filter. Not sure but I think I remember this being f/11 at 6.0 seconds.
Eyesore or Historical Edifice?

Don, nice image!
Bob, I'd like to see those in black and white. The color is so drab already, a BW might bring back some punch.
Graham, no fair pitting a curve like that against a green house and a dead cactus. Haha.
Here's another one from this morning. Three images layered for focusing.
Cambo RS1000, P45+,35mm lens, opened first in C14.8 then CS4
Graham - If I had shapes to photograph like that ... oh well I am a landscape photographer. Dale is correct, you win this page!
I vote for the curves.
Excerpt explanation from my blog (didn't feel like retyping)....
I hung back while everyone was taking turns shooting with the strobes and the wireless trigger on their cameras. Once some of the people started to clear out for the day, I busted out my giant tripod and Phase One medium format system, and started shooting using the modeling lights. Brent was cooking away with the strobes, directing Courtney and the lighting. I was… mooching, if you will. Hitting some different perspectives, off to the side, on the floor, etc. The modeling lights weren’t terribly bright, so I was only shooting at about 1/45s @ f/1.9 @ 1600 ISO. The depth-of-field on a f/1.9 lens on medium format is ridiculously thin, so manual focusing proved to be a little difficult in the dim light; especially when I had my tripod spread eagle, 2″ off the floor.
In any case, I am totally stoked with a few of the keepers I got, especially considering the constraints. Courtney threw me a couple of well-timed glances that worked out good. I had a few more excellent shots, except some had her moving in the frame (1/20 - 1/45s is not enough to freeze motion) or I deep-sixed the focus. I didn’t spend too much time processing these, so the skin tones aren’t consistent, etc.
Shot with P30+, Phamiya, 150mm D, 45mm, and 80mm f/1.9.
Nice series, Justin.
In that last shot, there is some posterization or something on her legs. Is that in the raw as well?
Interesting lighting, especially on the second one.
on the first image!
Hello everybody !
Here 2 shots mixed to get the maximum depth of field.
H3DII 31, ISO 200, f11 natural light (the sun lol) and shot with a monopod
Work well for me, I hope it's fine !
It's very rare for Lake Huron to be this calm, but this morning it was like the proverbial millpond!
AFD III 75-150 D at 150 mm f5.6 P45+
