    No, all I did in this case was to pan my Linhof 3 Way Head in an arc from left to right, then stitch in PS using the automated blend/align feature. The 80-200 has its own tripod collar and I figured the attachment point would be close to the nodal point of the lens and apparently it was as I didn't see any issues with the automated stitch. Lens/camera was in vertical orientation for the pano.

    Here is another, same area using the 45 PC-E lens but just a single frame this time.

    Close, right church wrong pew. Its south of Ennis but it is the Madison Range on the east side of the river. These "bumps" in the hill are referred to as the Helmut and Sphinx. Serious grizzly bear habitat.

    Nice image Matto. Now you're both making me covet glass... 24PC because of this, and the 45PC because of Rob's shot.

    Very nice shot, and ironic to have a pano on the wall of the room.

    I look forward to your results when you do find a D3s. I know I love mine.

    Hi Jorgen. The second one is a nice picture. The scene has great colors but the photo looks flat in my opinion. I dont know what raw processor you use, but Lightroom 4 is great for "this" kind of images.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Thanks Celina. It's a strange and almost impossible photo. The two monks are in direct, midday sunlight while the background is in almost complete darkness. I was surprised that I could get anything out of it at all. I use PS CS6 btw., and the RAW processor should be the same as the latest version of LR if I'm not mistaken.

    But I should have done something about the colour and contrast of the monks, to get them more in line with the rest of the photo.

    --


    There was this big, big Songkran celebration in Pailin today, just north of the mountains along the Thai/Cambodian border. There were thousands of people singing and dancing, praying and eating. Then there was this little boy who had a little plastic bag with some pink stuff. It's strange what catches one's attention sometimes.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Here's a bunch of trivial shots I took today with my new D800... I cracked and snagged one while waiting for the E version I preordered.

    They are all with the 24-120 F4 VR because it's the only Nikon lens I currently have! But since I was hoping to have it as my main walk around, I wanted to know how good it was and I seem to have a perfectly reasonable copy. I haven't yet tested it at all main focal lengths and all normal apertures but I think I'm going to be perfectly happy with it for daylight work: it seems sharp enough in the corners at 50% on screen (emulating a 200 DPI print, and sometimes requiring F8 but that's what I expected) and the lens corrections in LR clean up the distortions perfectly well. It's not for critical work, but is is, and I really never thought I'd see myself type this, especially on the D800, just as useful at first sight as the 24-105 Canon!

    Some of the shots are cropped a touch, some have exposure corrections, especially the dark "potting shed to greenhouse to outside" shot where I really really bumped up Shadows and Blacks to see what detail was lurking and, honestly, I am still amazed at how good those shadow areas are.

    Anyhoo here's some shots and they can all be downloaded as 91% quality JPEGS from a private page on my Zenfolio site at:

    These D800 shots with the 24-120 look really amazing. Seems to be a pretty good combo.

    I ordered the 60 Macro as Uwe had very positive experiences with it and I also want such a focal length again (after long years when I had my Leica 60 Macro) :-)

    But I am also considering the 24-120.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Back to the issue of shadow details...

    Image #1 is the potting shed RAW file imported directly into LR4 and no further adjustments. Image #2 is the same file with similar treatment to that in my post above, but this time with some local adjustments too, in order to balance it a bit better. I am, literally, gobsmacked by how much is there. The 91% quality JPEGS are at:

    Tim Ashley Photography | D800 | _DSC2342






    ps that's with sharpening at 60 and NR at zero too... at 50% on screen, equivalent to 200DPI print, I can see no noise...

    Love this one, Jorgen!

    The earlier posts are good too, and I do think the rework of that "something on the floor" is an improvement. The kid with something pink is especially good.

    Here is one from last night, though a bit rough around the edges still.

    D4/80-200 F2.8, 4 frame stitch.

Lens/camera was in vertical orientation for the pano.

    Here is another, same area using the 45 PC-E lens but just a single frame this time.
    Gorgeous, Rob!

    Tim: Those shots with the D800 are impressive. "Gobsmacked" does seem appropriate. That 24-120/f4 is a really nice lens. I love mine, and often default for it when I would otherwise use my 24-70/f2.8. I like the extra reach, and the VRII is a big plus. A real improvement over the earlier version with the variable aperture.

    Vincent: Lovely landscape shots. Very nice light.
