    Hi Stephan:

    Your English is more than adequate -- great series here and thank you for sharing these images! I had never heard of Reunion Island before this, and your images allow me to see it is a unique and photogenic place.

    Cheers,
    Jack

    Not too sure how this happened although I think this was caused by a operator error - short stoking the shutter release.

    Decided to see what I could make of it.





    WRS-1000, P45+,24mm opened and processed in C1.

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    Well I decided to take the plunge and get the HTS 1.5. I am learning to focus, which is the most challenging thing about using this device. When properly (and i emphasize properly!) quality is superb. Taken last night, Snake River, Keystone, CO. Phase one 45+ with H2 camera and 80mm HC lens with HTS 1.5. Eleanor

    Nice Eleanor! It looks like Hasselblad has a winning option with the HTS 1.5. I wish the Phase platform offered something similar (better than a spit-shined Hartblei) which would fill a nice niche short of a technical camera.

    Eleanor-- nice shot-- did you have the HTC tilted or shifted?

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    I had the HTS tilted and can't remember but probably a little shifted up to compensate for loss of my original top framing from the tilt. Actually the jpg here looks a bit oversharpened, but think that is from reduction from the large file tif. Only sharpening I did was either pre sharpening #1 or Soft Sharpening #1 in C1. No other sharpening needed to be done. Eleanor

    I continue to play/experiment with layered focusing in CS4. Both images are the result of 4-images blended together. Cambo WRS-1000,P45+ and 35mm lens. (First image was cropped for a better showing.)

    Don,

    Buy Dannylo's Helicon focus if you are using the stacker in CS4 -- it's way better...

    I really like that pano!

    Maybe the best you've done -- you should print it.

So I was carrying the SWC with a P25+ and a gitzo carbon tripod (as some member adviced me before I leave;;thanks)

    apologyze for my english...
    Very refreshing images and its good to here that you hiked all the way.
    I am interested in a tech camera (Artec) as well and allways wondered if one really brings such a camera+tripod to those wonderfull places (where you cant get with a car)

    Just answered my own question - yes it does. And I've ordered the program. This has been something I've been meaning to do thanks for the push Jack.

    Damned, Guy... Wish I could have been there!

    Every time I write off MF Digital because I think my A900/zeiss combo is so good, you guys begin to post stuff that shows the mf backs taken one step farther as far as dr/sharpness/and color depth.

    Fantastic shots everyone.

    Bill I really like this image. Too bad the weather did not cooperate. I was in MN a couple weeks ago and had some nice weather but was shooting bears in Orr.

    How far up the coast was this?

    You have to train yourself, because unfortunately these cameras are really heavy.
    It's important to have the good bag too : difficult to findas it must take your camel bag for water, your gore-tex in case of bad weather, food, camera, tripod, ...and the bags are heavy too.
    But one thing is sure : I were in places where I would have regret not to have my photo gear.

    You had time to stop the car before that light left the rock? Amazing. Or did you wait for it to hit? Gorgeous shot.

    I knew you would like that . Next trip go past the road to the park until you hit the hill

    Thanks folks walking away with 2 good images from the trip is a great batting average. I felt this one, love that feeling when you know you nailed it.

    Guy,
    I love that aerial perspective (stuff gets bluer as it gets farther away)

    Really nice, and I feel the connection to the previous 2 series. I especially like the last two.

    Color consistency is good, nice fine art appeal. I like it.

    Justin:

    Have you considered looking at the above series in B&W? I pulled a few of them in and converted them, and with some work I think would make a more powerful series. I even faded the B&W layer to around 70% which rendered a old Polaroid look I found intriguing for this subject matter.

    My .02 only,

    But one thing is sure : I were in places where I would have regret not to have my photo gear.
    I believe you and feel the same way - after seing your images I got very confident that I will cary that MF stuff up some mountains.

    Now that I'm shooting exclusively with the WRS-1000 I've found a combination of a pelican case and backpack a perfect fit. The camera and lens fit well in the pelican and filters and miscellaneous filters, step rings and other stuff in the backpack. Simple to place the camera and a couple lens in the backpack and off I go. I don't take all my lens but only those that will fit into the general geographic landscape. All told total weight isn't more than 30-40 pounds including tripod and water, lots and lots of water.

    So the short answer is yes, it can be done.

    Justin - I like the series very industrial/agricultural. Tones and colors are very good.

    I also wonder what some might look like in black & white with a touch of IR.

    Just a thought.

    I think the last 3 catch my eye the most...
