    Oops !

    That was supposed to get filled with content aware in PS, but I forgot it. I wanted to keep enough grass at the bottom on the left side. I will try to correct it to-morrow : it's too late to launch the desktop now.

    The house was part of a former glass manufacture in the XIXth century. The engineer who bought those buildings transformed the stores into this cosy habitation in 1880. The wood carvings are related to the Swiss style or Schweizer Holzstill : a reinterpretation of the vernacular architecture encountered in the mountain villages.

    I'm more fascinated about the "trees" in front of the house. It's hard to look farther.

    Another (side)view of the Villa Lommel in Monthey for those intrigued by that house. Note the stained glass window at the entrance somewhat in the art nouveau style

    A7rm2 and FE 28mm F2 (not the best lens for architecture because of distortion, but so small and light and very cheap here)

    Hôtel de Ville, Monthey

    This building was erected in 1710-1711. It was first an hospital housing sick and/or poor people, plus occasional pilgrims and travelers. At the beginning of the 19th century it was occupied by the girls school up until 1911. After that it became the property of the community and since then is housing the City Hall. The building was entirely renovated in 1922; that is when the balcony and the columns framing the entrance were added.

    Rue du Moulin, Vétroz

    The street and the bed of the creek were under works for a long time. They have just finished rechanneling the creek and the way they handled it is quite stunning, with all these barriers. But one can barely look at the water coming down anymore.

    I don't have an A7x, so can't post pictures here. And I won't get one (yet) just to be able to post here.
    On the other hand this is still one of the most busy threads, the generic "Fun with Sony__" and the "Artful Images/Brand-less" threads can go for a week or more before a next post comes in.

    Maybe it's time to merge the "Fun with A7 Series" with the "Fun with Sony____" threads

    Hell, no! Not again!

    (The original fun with A7 was merged and it died. That was when the traffic to this site was high!)

    Haha, I thought you knew to not take me too seriously and I even put a nice in as an extra hint.

    Of course I wasn't serious suggesting the A7 owners should have to weed through the pictures taken with other Sony cameras

    If it was just me, I'd like a forum where people would post the pictures they have taken with whatever camera they are using. For instance I own both an MFT and a Sony system and I'd prefer to show my pictures all in the same forum. But in the only general thread I know, you are about the only one to post and up until recently that thread was slower than the Sony one. Seems that I need to find another place to talk about photography. I'd prefer one where pictures and type of photography have the precedence over gear. Any ideas ? I have been exploring Flickr groups recently, but there is barely any discussion.

    I'm with you Annna, that's why I tried to breathe some life in other threads on this forum. I think gear is mostly unimportant for taking and discussing worthwhile pictures, but it seems not everyone agrees with me on that

    But if others (incl. you) start posting and commenting in this thread we might get somewhere.

    You are looking for that unobtainable.

    John W (among others) asked this question a while ago and the answer is it (the forum) is what you make of it.

    Here is a link to the section where no one goes, apparently.

    Is it just me?

    Yep, story of our life, yesterdays' top gear is junk today.
    Don't know how we can best deal with that Buying new gear doesn't really help, because that's yesterday's gear tomorrow
    For now I'm going to keep shooting with my junk, crazy but affordable

    A lot of people who can't or won't buy the latest are making very nice images with NEX and A-mount gear.

    I agree that we should put more emphasis on the photo than the gear, but talking about new gear is fun and a lot of people enjoy that.

    There is a place here for everyone who is civil and interested in photography, no matter what your interest.

    I like the idea of posting all of my Sony posts going forward to the "Fun with Sony" thread.

    I wrote that in jest. I still have A mount and NEX E mount cams and use them.

    I for one do not like one image thread.

    What is preventing anyone from posting pics in the generic threads elsewhere? Why is the Canon, etc fora nearly dead?

    No kidding Werner, it looks indeed very challenging.
    It's probably geometrically correct since you're so close, but the optical illusion I see is that the front wheel of this locomotive is taking a sharp right turn

    Yah, the lok takes a sharp right turn..

    Dont really know where this comes from (the rod however is straight) ? Maybe an optical illusion or a distortion from the perspective ?
    The lens however has only a little bit of (lens)distortion.

    Werner, I think it's perspective distortion. Since you're shooting at an angle but at very close distance with an ultra wide rectilinear lens you're looking at the front wheel "straight on", and since the other wheels are shown at an angle it seems like the front wheel is taking a right turn.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 Series Cameras( all of them)

    Today I went to Martigny. This is another small town at the bottom of the Valley. It isn't a place where I'd like to live because it isn't very sunny. But it is an interesting place nevertheless. It was already inhabited in the prehistory and the Romans built a fortified place there, because it lies at the bottom of an important pass. The Romans named it Octodur. There are many traces of the presence of the Romans : the ruins of houses, of baths and an amphitheater. Like the prehistoric monoliths and the dolmen in Sion, the roman ruins are mixed in the daily environment and freely accessible. To-day wasn't necessarily the best day to visit, because they were preparing for a music festival.. I waited for the end of the afternoon in order to get better light, but then the sky was mostly cloudy and the light remained very flat.


    A7rm2 and Zeiss Loxia 21mm F2.8 (the new lens arrived this morning. So this was my first outing with that lens and I got many many unsharp pictures. I was fooled by the peaking and also I often moved the aperture ring accidentaly to F2.8. I will have to get accustomed.

    Thank you Kirk, you are probably correct I do have a lousy sense of colour at times

    Do you see yourself as Coburn-ish, or more Emersonian?

    From the series hydroelectric power plants.

    Centrale de Martigny-Bourg : the building was built in 1904-1906 and has just been renovated. The north side you see here has seen an extension. The original building had those big church like windows with an arch at the top. They can still be seen on the other side, but I wasn't able to photograph that side. Clearly, the first plant I visited was the most interesting. More pictures can be seen in the Flickr album https://flic.kr/s/aHskAv1qy9

    Actually I went out shooting with my old friend Annie Brigman. It's an early digital file from 1916.

    Went to see the vivid festival tonight. Its a 23 day festival where the buildings of sydney are lit up with art and various light art installations are around. It felt like a quarter of sydney was there tonight.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 Series Cameras( all of them)

    Looking over to West Looe
    This is a 90% (image) + 10% (paper) blend with some old (French) Arches Platine Paper that I had lying about, from when I used to make platinum prints a couple of decades ago.
    By blending the two together it reduces the D-Max of the image somewhat, thus also reducing the o/a contrast of the image further to what I consider gives a more pleasing appearance.
    Originally toned using 100% opacity of the (Thomas Niemann) Palladium toning PS action...you can download here should you so wish Photoshop Actions | Classic Tones
    I do think in this instance that Kirks 50mm F/0.95 Mitakon would have made a softer more natural pleasing image than my modern day Zeiss lens






    Different subject matter but the same concept

    I don't post much but thought this was worthy of airing. Tweedy the clown of Giffords Circus playing last night at Blenheim Palace.

    AFAIK, Barry, the Mistaken lens is more recent than the Zony 55/1.8.

    BTW, Way too cumbersome processing (but with excellent results)!
