    Wow...interesting place to play, I hope they didn't get too carried away!
    Or are all folks in Colorado like that?

    The first one is pretty interesting Graham, I don't know if it was intentional but I like the connection created between the two generations through the leopard print outfits, very cool.

    Yes, the sky has lost the blotchiness now. I guess I'd lower the brightness a bit but perhaps I'm too biased by what I remember of Yosemite - and memories can be very capricious!
    Anyway, I like the composition and I trust the dof is as you wanted? Can't tell in a small jpeg. (I use Helicon for these static shots.)

    Talking Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    Well its finally my turn to post on this thread as I joined the ranks of MF shooters having fun (thanks Kurt!). I had the chance this weekend to really shoot with my AFDIII / P45+ both tethered (in studio) and to CF (on location), versus just performing test images.

    The first thing I'll say is that once you get used to it there is no need to worry about slowing down to keep the flow of shooting, now its not 35mm DSLR speeds but very easy to get used to. I also liked the fact that the P45+ liked my CF cards (16GB RIDATA UDMA) and never slowed down. I also was quite impressed with ISO 400 on this puppy it looked lovely, the grain was fine by me. So, enough of me making you guys yawn with my "newbie" observations here are some photos from this weekend.


    Enjoy!

    Kurt and Guy,

    Thanks for the great comments, its really appreciated! After watching these forums and this thread in particular for so long, I'm glad to just be able to contribute. Here is one more that I just finished up from the same shoot a little more on the edgy side.

    I agree with Bill, Charlie. The composition is very will done. I especially like the separation between the span and the two buildings in the lower right-hand corner. And just so you know, you're killing me with that MFDB set-up. But you're making it sing.

    Thanks Woody for your comment!

    I was not happy with the file quality and composition of the shrub got trapped in the fence. Last evening I returned to the scene to redo the composition and this time I want to see another fast normal lens at work. The last two images were taken at F2 and F16 respectively. What f stop do you think work better for this image?

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    Son - of the last two images taken at F2 and F16 respectively, I prefer the F16 image because the increased detail lets me "feel" the bite of the fence cutting through the exposed tree, particularly in the lower right hand corner where the touch of red is on the fence (it is also nice to see the contrast in different textures in this area; rusting metal, rotted wood). However, I do prefer the softness in the sky and edge of the building in the upper left corner of the F2 image. This softness seems to hold more promise (mystery) for the two protagonists entwined in most of the frame.

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    Charlie,
    You nailed several points that I tried to capture: 1) the fence cutting through the exposed tree, 2) the contrast in textures between the rotted and dried surrounding wood, 3) the right hand corner where the fence has rusted to bright red (the Golden Rule), 4) the differences in softness and sharpness at different f stops. The final point you suggested was in some way pointed out by one of my colleagues. In order to combine these two elements from the different f stops, I will have to refocus the plane of focus of interest to achieve the effects and perhaps ending up at f5.6. I hope to achieve this today.

    Best Regards,
    -Son

    Charlie,
    Your image of the Brooklyn Bridge was very well composed like others have mentioned. My favorite part of the image is the open triangle space on the top right corner that you recreated using the lining cables from the bridge.

    Dr. Laurent, I find that the richness in colors is often associated with my Schneider optics in Rollei mount. I believe this is what you are experiencing with your image. The image is lovely and very sharp as well but the distortion could be fixed to make it even a better image.

    I also love the leading lines that help to create such depth to the image.

    Best Regards,
    Son

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    You're right Son I have this 'problem' with the 47xl also, adding the saturation given by the P25+ : suddenly things are more difficult ; with the M8 files, I don't mind pushing saturation or contrast, it works quite easily.
    But with those medium format files, humhum not so easy !! A part of the problem I think is the lighting of the scene, wich is near flat : and then come the P25+ who find colors in the flat light. Thank you Phase for this, ...and I still have a lot to learn in the treatment of the files....

    The colors look great....

    Try using the correction filter in PS CS4 for perspective correction.[Filter_ Distort_Lens Correction_Trabsform_Vertical Perspective]...looks like you are not level and it is an easy fix to bring the lines back to vertical. I have to do it on my Alpa TC when I do not have the bubble level attached.

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    I have to make a precision here : there is no need to straighten vertical lines because they are !!! I took the shot on a tripod and carrefully align the bubble level on the camera. (there are three bubble levels)

    The fact is the photo has been taken in Amsterdam : the town is build on a very soft ground with water canals averywhere so these old building are really not straight, that is one of the fun of the town !!!
