I used to know. Maybe it is; maybe it isn't. I just know it isn't a Prius. Cheers.

Really wonderful detail, Corlan.

That's some beautiful portraiture, Albert. Proof of the pudding, I showed them to my wife, and they drew several "Awws". And the one of the little girl... that go got "oh, my, that's a beautiful shot!" So, it's official.
Great stuff Al, as usual...
Corian, seems like you're enjoying mild weather like us, here in NYC. You peaked my curiosity in the other thread but never sent me that pm...

Thanks Lloyd, Matt... as David said light is interesting here lately. Colour temp varies drastically within little time, which opens possibilities in addition of being a photographic challenge.
The next boat was owned by a nice couple who by 2002, five years before retirement decided to take the the risk to buy a rusty wrecked barge and to rebuild it to have a home. Both workers for 40+ years but with their factories closing money was scarce so everything was made DIY with scrap yards stuff.
Here's some details of the result (no WA lens that day):
Living space inside is tiny (less than 250 sq. feet added), but they can't be happier. When summer comes, the 35-ft barge leaves port and they go for a 3-month ride up North...
Here's the cabin, "back" and "front":

Great portraits, Albert.
150 families, wow... That's some serious material!! (and headaches?)
These are very pretty Corian with gorgeous light, I wonder if you could get permission to shoot models in there...
To give you an idea, i had to shoot with the 50mm (FF) @f2 to f4 from the outside, one foot on the concrete and the other one on the short gangplank. Btw not really an ideal stance since the darn thing is for some reason on... water , so it's kinda moving independently from your shooting position. So you have to wait not only for the light in calm weather, but also for any single ripple from passing boats to fade.
P.S. PM sent
Those are beautiful images, Corlan. Wonderful detail. Those folks did an amazing job on that boat.
Bangkok at night...

Excellent boat photos, Corlan. A life on the canals? I could live with that
Btw thanks for the compliment, actually they loved the couple of prints i brought them, the wife was even getting emotional. So i guess sometimes it's rewarding just to take pictures, "for fun".
I even have a couple of portraits from another canal harbour, but i'm shy to post them among the masters of portraiture...
(and also as mentionned before the laws here protecting any individual's "image rights" are so tight and people so sensitive about it that it makes you think twice before shooting street portraits)

John, nice night shot.
Just so you know on my screen i can see the strobe at 45° R, but a simple Spot Healing click should save the day.
Fun colors and lights, Mikoo. Very neat!
Hazy Morning. We have an inversion starting.
D3, 85 PC @ f27 1/10. Three shot stitch.
man that is nice do you use a special head?
Beside the perfect stitch, quite an interesting composition with the green suburbs turning into cityscape -then the fog dressing the mountains in the remote backgroung. Lights, and DR, are just great.
Did not think you had this kind of issue with pollutants in your area, btw...

Lloyd, is it the lens you wanted to part with for months and finally decided to keep?
Looks pretty darn good...
