    Re: Fun with D800 Photos

    My feeling and noticing it in this TAMMY 24-70 is I am seeing better results with it off at the higher shutter speeds and with it on better at low but not great at higher shutter speeds. I remember my Canon system when on tripods the IS on was really bad and off much better results. I equate that same results to high shutter speeds where the need is questionable since its trying to counteract movement. Well there is no movement at fast shutter speeds. Now gyros are used to counteract vibrations of aircraft. You as a shooter are more the cushion of vibrations. It's interesting how they work but I feel they are not the same as these VR setups.

    I look for the sharpest results from 85mm to 105mm and may give up on VR for it.

    Of course and also normal haze. We have to fly with good sight and then the sun is an issue too.

    I was pretty exhausted when I got here. We drove from Bergen to Lofoten in only two days. I feel a divine hatred for cars at the momement, but it will soon pass I guess. It's a funny story that you shared, I enjoyed it. If you ever find yourself in Lofoten, be sure to PM me. I'd be happy to show you around. And yes, this is with the Zeiss 21. It's the only lens I have, and I don't think I'll ever buy another one again.

    Everyone else, thanks for the likes and thank you for your comment Eleanor!

    Best regards, Fredrick.

    I do like that you only have that 21mm for the 800E!...simplicity..Yes, let the feet do the tele or leave the scenery in your mind instead
    Yes it could be nice to have a closer look, we go south every holliday, it could have been nice with a break in that pattern.

    Finally got my Platinum workflow up and running again (been down for a bit now)

    first version of the Platinum over Pigment 'Roasted Corn'

    (have some more tweaking to do, but very much in the ballpark)

    start with color image

    o convert to CMYK (max GCR)

    o convert K channel to Greyscale, then RGB

    o add color mask appropriate for digital negative for platinum printing (Ziatype)
    (digital neg has registration marks on corners)

    o back to CMYK of image.. clear K channel

    o convert the CMY image to RGB (only color info, no detail or contrast.. that's all in the K channel)
    o print color info with registration marks onto COT 320 paper.

    o coat with Ziatype chemistry (1platinum: 2 palladium to get neutral platinum print)

    o place negative onto coated paper in registration, exposue with nuArc plate burner

    o process

    Night sky tonight...this time taken with my Zeiss 100 makro, f2, 1000 iso, 10 seconds. (D800e) Even at this short shutter speed the stars show as tiny streaks...more so than the shots I took at 14mm. This one taken from the front of my home in Colorado. The clouds also show movement and reflect the light from this area. Eleanor

    Thanks for your comments Jorgen and Daniel. With the summit image I felt the haze from wyoming and Montana wildfires in the distance and the shadows on the mountains surrounding the lake helped give a feeling of drama and depth that I liked. Eleanor

    Thanks Pramote. My favorite view too. Nice image of yours of cherry creek with your Z18... How do you like that lens? I was thinking of adding a Zeiss ultra wide for my 800e...am lusting after the new 15 but it's awfully expensive and big and bulky. Eleanor

    You should try the 18 . I think it will work very nicely for you.

    Thanks Eleanor! I love it! It's on my D800E almost all the time with Lee adapter ring. It's light, very sharp and good for filters. Distortion can be corrected very easily with PS. I now use the 14-24mm only when I want 14mm. I am quite sure you will like it.

    Crop sensors aren't too terrible at high ISO, though you can kiss any delusions of colour accuracy goodbye...(ISO8000)



    This is something that is really making me look forward to going FF.

    Re: Fun with D800 Photos

    Thanks Guy and Pramote...I'm hesitant about the Z18 because Lloyd Chambers said the 14-24 is equal or better in every area so I'm a little leary about the 18 because I am afraid I might be wishing I had my 14-24 on my camera instead. What does sound really interesting is the just announced Z 55! Eleanor

    I didn't expect much when I bought this Zeiss 18mm but it is definitely sharper at 18mm than my Nikon 14-24mm (which I still like).
    The weight and ability to use filters (especially ND/polarizer) are big advantages.

    Thank you Eleanor! I use the Zeiss 21mm. In some situations I find it to be a little too wide. To compensate for this I have purchased a Mamiya RB67 with a 90mm lens. I will do a filmproject for the rest of the year and some of next year. I will of course also use my D800E when I don't want to go into the darkroom.

    Re: Fun with D800 Photos

    Really nice picture Fredrick. I took a look at your Flickr-pictures.
    Could I ask you for something? On some of your shots one is very curious of how the colours would look like, specially that Kvalvik-photo(but perhaps also the Storm-one). Could I have a look at the colours?

    Yes, certainly. Please do bear in mind that these were processed to become black and white images, therefore they might look a bit off in colours. I am still perfecting my black and white process and this is a part of it.

    Another beauty, Pramote. The lovely, soft tonality of this one really works.

    Mt Evans just begs fot super wide shots! Nice! What was your shooting aperture? Also how sharp is your 18 wide open and what is the optimal aperture? We are both going to miss this area for the next 8 months! Eleanor

    Pramote,

    Excellent use of the Zeiss 18mm (and grad ND). The colors, composition and tonal range really work in this image. Well done. Would you mind sharing the EXIF data (aperture, shutter speed, ISO) with us?

    And because of you, I bought the 18mm.

    Joe

    Joe and Promote, are either of you seeing the cyan cast at the edges of the frame in you 18?? digilloyd shows examples of this vs the 14-24 which shows no cyan fringe. Interested in the lens but not sure if I want to make the investment yet. (I have the 14-24 and love it...it's just really heavy and bulky! thanks, Eleanor

    Thanks very much Joe and Eleanor.
    Joe..It's very kind of you to say that you bought it because of me You were the one who told me to try Zeiss lenses. Remember?
    The setting was ISO 400 (could be lower); 1/125; f/16. I know about diffraction but f/16 work for me.
    I've never seen any color cast. It's on my camera almost all the time because it is very light, very sharp, easy to use with filter and easy to focus (infinity most of the time with my landscape work).
    I think I may buy a 15mm.

    Best,
    Pramote

    You're my hero!!

    I just received my Zeiss 18mm and haven't had an opportunity to get out and shoot with it yet. 90+ degrees, high humidity and thunder storms each day. Sunday we get some relief.

    Beautiful sunset tonight. Everyday is a dream here in Lofoten. If you like landscapes, you should really come here.
