    It looks like sometimes you hold your camera low, or Rolleiflex style, and look through the articulated screen?

    Doisneau thought that was the most 'respectful' way to shoot.

    Nice portrait with impressive sharpness and clarity, but not your best bokeh - so I wonder which lens?

    You are challenging us with this one Barry ! Playing games with DOF against us

    On one side, there is a very strong push to follow the leading lines, the trunk and the river bed, but then we land in the out of focus zone and struggle to follow the course of the creek till the end. You are tricking us

    Beautiful texture in the foreground BTW.

    I am not kidding, Kirk. Even when I am behind a subject, they just crash in to my frame.

    Yes, almost all the time the articulated screen at various angles and heights is used. I have used a 6x6 TLR a long while ago and the articulated LCD is much more sophisticated version of it. Fabulous aid!

    Thank you Annna, you are always very generous and kind to me with your comments...much appreciated.

    I think Kirk with his more recent landscape images has had me rethinking about using a fast aperture for landscape photography...Rather than I just do my normal routine thing of automatically stopping down to circa F/8 with the hyper focal point trying to keep everything as sharp as possible from near to far throughout the frame.
    The only trick is choosing what the actual sharp point of focus is going to be (personally I prefer that point to be slightly just off of centre and fairly close to)...It can sometimes just give you that sense of depth of actually being there!
    Likewise I do think that fast 35mm and 50mm lenses seem to achieve this look still the best, probably because those two FL's closer replicate the way we see things with the human eye.
    The main problem is if one is only viewing the image on a small screen then the actual point of focus becomes less obvious and that sense of involvement gets totally lost...That is one of the reasons I still leave an "Enlargement" link below.

    Thanks again, you gave me the opportunity to explain myself...Cheers Barry

    PS. Annna, please show some more of those excellent long exposure night time street scenes that you have on flickr.

    Barry, don't "rethink" it. Your style of landscape photography and your captures of Cornwall are exemplary. I've loved all of them and they complement the other styles of other photographers. Your "normal routine" is fantastic. Keep 'em coming.

    Of course I like that image, but it's bad enough that just one of us fell off the sharpness wagon and is addicted to wide apertures.

    My suggestion is shoot both ways, one at wide aperture and one at f8, to avoid the whole catastrophe.

    Also your lenses might be too good for this kind of work.

    I'm like Joe Colson and enjoyed your usual routine quite a lot. But of course after a while one need to explore other things. Thanks for the kind words concerning my night pictures, although I'm not really sure to which ones you are thinking. I made a recent night outing, but it wasn't very fruitful. In fact it was rather deceiving : I was hoping to get a lot more lighted windows. But the school summer holidays have already begun and it was a hot friday evening.. so may be the inhabitants were either gone to Spain or Portugal (it is a neighborhood inhabited by many foreign workers) or enjoying a cold bear on a pub terrace. Whatever, I got much less light than I had anticipated. The lighted stair cases for instance could have made great subjects, but the light there last only a few minutes and then you have to wait for about 15minutes, more than my impatience tolerates. Plus a tripod doesn't make you very mobile if you have to hunt from one bloc to another and ooops, too late the light is already spent. But the temperature was nice and I spent an agreeable moment there.

    But so here is one of that evening, taken in Rue de l'Envol, Sion-Ouest. The point on the left at some distance of the moon isn't a hot pixel. It is Jupiter who was supposed to encounter the moon a little later in the evening.

    Yes, Land's End, of course. I may actually have a picture of it somewhere myself from when we visited in '87 or so. Spent six yrs in England, the Southwest clearly was the best, IMHO. Beautiful. Thanks for posting.

    Vivek, sometimes you do get people to cooperate as in this instance. Taken with my Leica a while ago. If I may be allowed to indulge a little in this 'Sony A7 thread'.

    Lest we forget...........

    I find this one particularly poignant.

    I uploaded another copy as the other one was messed up with the forum software - too much red in it. This is a monochrome version of the original with some color retained and a duotone treatment applied. Thanks for looking.

    True. This visit was with wife, in-laws and friends. On a rainy weekend. Imagine the crowds and the rushed feeling. I wanted a different angle to this particular photo because the 'normal' viewing of the exhibit is boring. Had to wait for people to clear out and yet had barely a half a minute to compose and shoot. Definitely need to go back and on a day when it isn't raining either.

    Here is another one. Again, battling jostling crowds on the walkway overlooking this, waiting for the mist to be just right. Everything shot hand-held that day.

    A few shots taken at the Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton NJ some years back.
    Apologize that they are not Sony shots but I wanted to show what a great place this is.

    Perfectly composed and a great example of OPA / other people's art.

    Maybe a little less red, before you print it?

    Kirk, thank you. I have no idea why they are showing up here with a magenta tint. I am going to re-calibrate my monitor and try some other ways to upload, perhaps change the color profile.

    Love it. Take out the pooch and lovely lady and it's a beautiful landscape photo. But with them it really comes to life. Your selection of the right fraction of a second was perfect. Nice work...

    Thank you Jim...I think it may of been more luck than judgement.
    I was even fortunate enough to get a gull fly through the crack between the rocks and the clouds kind of replicated the ripple on the wet sand.


    This one also taken this afternoon was much more intentional on my part...The youngsters were dangerously fooling around on the rock...When I spotted the wind break with the words "Danger"
    When one of the lads raised his hands like the sign on the wind break I knew I had the shot in the can so to speak...Thank you.

    Thank you Annna, yep that's the one I was referring to!
    I personally really liked this one from your recent set of street night shots...As the Cornish would say it's "Proper Ansum"
    The dark void of night is nicely filled by the flare from the street light above without the inclusion of the light's harsh brightness which IMO would have been to distracting...The flare is also mirrored in the street markings below and holds the frame nicely altogether.
    The white arrow (blue background) points down nicely to the bluish headlight trail of some passing vehicle during the longish night exposure...Composition, exposure and timing all very nicely handled while you risked your life by setting up your tripod in the middle of the road!
    Thanks for posting...BTW the image just above is also excellent...Cheers Barry

    Thank you Pradeep, apologies for late response...Agree the Southwest (Cornwall and Devon for me) are my two favourite counties...Both are beautiful in their own right and well worth a visit with lot's to photograph (Back in '87 it was even better and less spoilt than what it is today)...Cheers Barry

    Here's one taken with my unsteady hands on the a7r at 1/10s. This was the sharpest frame I could get, sans tripod.

    Pretty much straight magenta for me too—perhaps with a touch of yellow (iMac with OSX calibration).

    Barry, thanks for the kind words, I'm blushing now.. No, I don't think that I risked my life, probably less than when you climbs in the rocks walls on the Cornish shore to get the right POW :-) In fact, the traffic run mostly on the perpendicular street, the one I was standing on is a lateral rather quiet street.

    I visited another power plant two days ago, but there are still a lot of pictures to sort out. So in the meantime here is a shot I took in Lausanne :

    Lausanne, la Cité and the lake of Geneva in the background.

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

    Congratulations, Thomas, on this technically excellent, indeed almost perfect, documentation.

    May I suggest working more for the feeling of the churches and their environment? Two sources of inspiration: dear old Eugene Atget, and contemporary Thomas Struh, who give the viewer the feeling of being right there.

    Both were/are concerned with the light and the time of day, and picked hours with as few people/vehicles as possible, or waited to place them as well as possible - so hard to do now in a crowded city.

    IMO the third and fourth are strongest from this point of view.
