    I like it with the trees. It does not block anything, but adds a new level.

    Work, private projects and the planning of our next holiday (New Zealand!) hold me away from shooting/processing stuff I would share here. As some may know, I'm very restrictive with publishing my work for others or people shots in the net (although this stuff is around 90% of my work). But people appreciate my restriction. So it happens from time to time, that I just don't have anything to post here, even though I'm sitting all evenings in front of the computer.
    Here are two from my "restricted work" from the last days. It's fine, when I post them for a short time on my presentation page and you can have a look, if you are interested...
    The first is one of the documentation of a work from my wife and the second is one about fun fairs through the eyes of kids.

    Annna, all the best to you and your mother.

    Note that in Sion there are four castles. In the above picture, you can see three castles. Of the third there is only a few ruins remaining. They are at the top of the third hill at the left of the picture. Sorry for the trees blocking the view.

    Thank you The Ute for your words of encouragement. I appreciate. I guess that we all go through that one day or another, especially when we reach retirement age. We hope that this obligatory passage goes softly, without too much pains.

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

    Two days ago, I photographed another rest area along the highway. I thought it would be a modest one and just went with the 24-70mm zoom, but it was more extended than I anticipated. Because in addition to the toilets there was also a large picnic area. But what impressed me more is that it was offering a new angle of view on a very nice landscape of vineyards with mountains in the background and a railway in the foreground. So in the coming days I'll show some of the shots I took there.

    I have two versions of the following scene and don't know which one to choose, help me out ! They show the vineyards of Ardon/Chamoson and the Haut-de-Cry and Muverans mountains.

    Personally I find the first one the strongest plus in #2 the tree is actually OOF and hence distracts vs help frame the shot.

    Annna, for me also the first one, feels less cramped vs. the other one and I agree with Graham's point about the out of focus tree.

    All the best with your mother, I can certainly relate what you are going through.
    I lost my mother two years ago and she was very much looking forward to my planned retirement (which was postponed month after month because the company didn't have a successor ready). In the end she went into a coma on Friday, on Saturday I was told I could finally retire and on Monday she passed. Those were the most crazy and mixed emotion four days of my life. I hope you have more peace and quiet to help your mother through the last phase of her life.

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

    I'm also for the first one Annna. It gives me the feeling to move on through the last trees to see the wonderful landscape on the top of the hill. It's a very nice scenery.

    I'm sorry to hear that Pieter.
    My father got Altzheimer diagnosed when I was 23. A few weeks later I made the decision to take care at least one day per week. At the beginning we did a lot of hikes together, in the end, after ten years, I washed him and feeded him. The time formed me, but I never regret it. I didn't made a career like my friends and live isn't that light anymore. But now I try to spare as much time as possible with the people I love. Love is the biggest gift we have and it is very powerful in a wonderful way. It's been eight years now and I often think about my father and always with a good feeling. He's still a part of my life. Yes, he died, but that's fine. He suffered a lot of pain at the end.
    If I'm in the position to give a general advice: If it is about the people you love, do it now. Try to enjoy the time, and don't care much about the leave. It will come ones, and your thoughts about it will not bring it faster or later. But the feelings you have together will stay.
    All the very best, Sebastian.

    I forgot to answer to that part yesterday .. I like the trees too, but I wish I were one or two floors higher, so they wouldn't stand so near of the castles. I climbed on a chair, but it didn't help a lot..
    Thank you for taking the time to answer.

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

    Many thanks to those who answered to my question, here or at Flickrs. In fact I do also prefer the first one, which in fact I took after the second picture shown here. But I asked because I find that the foreground and the oak fruits look better in this one and also the way the well lighted part of the picture follows a clearer path. But you confirmed my choice. Thank again to all who took the time to answer.

    Pieter,

    Thank you for your encouraging words. I'm sorry to hear how things went with your mother. I had the joy to retire while she was still doing rather well. We spent two nice summers up in the mountains together and she enjoyed both the wonderful view with had from our balcony and the daily walks along the "bisses". Last year was already more complicated and this year she had entered in a geriatric home, so I didn't rent a holiday flat. Yes, it is a hard time when we loose or are near of loosing our parents. It puts us in front of human finitude, that of our parents as well as our own.

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

    For this evening I'll share two pictures taken at the extreme border of the rest area along the highway. It is clear that this point was chosen for the tourists, the view on the vineyards and the mountains is great. But the main valley is very narrow and has to accommodate many traffic flows : the highway, the railroad, the main regional road, several high voltage lines for the exportation of electricity. Plus what goes underground, like the natural gaz pipeline. Add to those physical barriers the natural one of the river Rhône and you'll see that the region is a puzzle for engineers. Here a view of how that is impacting the landscape :

    .....is the ladder for train rescue or for servicing the overhead wiring?

    Probably for servicing. It is near a pole bearing signal lights :

    Thanks The Ute. That's a very beautiful area.
    I have visited the Grande Canyon - both rims, Zion, and Bryce several times, with and without snow. Your backyard is simply amazing.

    But I really can't complain either here in the "Land of Enchstment".

    Nor should you in my opinion K-H.
    We lived in the Albuquerque area for 7 years.
    Loved it and thoroughly enjoyed it.
    It compares favorably in natural beauty to where I am now.
    In some ways the two places are very similar.

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

    Haven't used the Sony in a bit, but drove out from Chicago to Denver with my brother through SD. Stayed in Spearfish. Some images from an early morning hike to Roughlock Falls. First image is the Leica AA 50. Other three are the 90 APO Summicron. I really liked the soft reflected indirect light in the canyon.

    Dave: These are fabulous. The last one with the pastel colors reminds me of an expert pastel drawing. VERY nice, indeed.

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

    Thank you very much Dave. I really enjoyed the morning. One of my favorite things is to start hiking in the dark of the morning. As things gradually lighten I feel I get a real sense of place even if I've never been there before. At first you just see basic shapes with no color, then things "expose" themselves as twilight fades.

    It was a blue sky morning but the canyon walls bounced indirect light all around.

    Voigtlander 12mm E mount lens arrived later today...I managed to snap a couple off with it just before the light disappeared for the day at the local stately home.
    Initial impression this lens performs better at the extreme corners (@ infinity f8) than the last CV E mount 15mm lens that I received (and then later returned)...It's not as good as the Loxia 21mm but then I wouldn't expect it to be, nonetheless I'm pretty sure this one is a keeper.

    Barry Hines, Congrats on the 12mm, love expanses and spatialty, I want to try the Laowa also, much faster for astros, and samples look real good also. Been shooting Thai temples with this one, tripods are allowed and with Francis NEAT got rid of the people. Regards, Takomaru

    Thank you Takomaru
    The Laowa 12mm Prototype samples that I have seen so far do look highly impressive...I do confess that I had a very hard time choosing between the new Voigtlander 12mm III ultra wide Heliar and the Laowa 12mm.
    The faster speed for astrophotography combined with the zero distortion + The optional filter holder + The optional magic shift converter (17mm / F/4.0) are all very compelling reasons for many to choose the Laowa 12mm over the Voigtlander 12mm...But the main reason I went with the Voigtlander was the much lower weight and smaller size, I'm not much into atrophotography anyway and I don't use filters much other than for lens protection, if I wanted a shift lens I would probably buy a dedicated lens (ie. Canon 17mm TS-E) rather than use a converter on a super-wide.
    The size and weight difference between these two lenses would mean that I wouldn't think twice about taking the Voigtlander out with me (whereas I might the other way around), together with my other 4 favourite lenses (21mm Loxia,35mm Sony FE Distagon, 55mm Sony Sonnar and Sony 90mm G macro)...As it stands all 5 lenses fit very nicely/snugly in my existing camera bag...I have now spent 48hrs with the Voigtlander 12mm lens and shot just over a thousand images.
    My opinion is that the Voigtlander 12mm E mount lens (my version at least) is an excellent lens which is great fun to use...I have no regrets with my final decision :-)
    I'm pleased that I have stuck to my original game plan that I said way back last year in November... Fun with the Sony A7 Series Cameras( all of them)

    I would just like to thank Mike E for all the info and samples that he has provided here and over at FM relating to the 12mm Voigtlander...very helpful to me and I expect others who are considering buying the 12mm Voigtlander.

    Image size comparison Dierk Topp with the very slightly larger 10mm http://www.stevehuffphoto.com/wp-con...8/image-05.jpg

    + A few others (hoods up and reversed).

    Cheers Barry Haines

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

    Barry, thanks for your disclosure...I went for the Voigtlanders after seeing Mike Evangelista samples and comparison, for which I am extremely grateful, also because availability in M mount and I like to use them with the Zhongy Booster II for M mount, with my older Nex7 which I don't intend to retire and can take heavy storms, unlike mu A7R. I am also extremely grateful to Werner Utsch, as his work with the 10mm mainly in FM forums speaks by itself.

    Some terrific photographers in this forum, and your work helps people like myself on choosing and deciding on our glass.

    Thank you again Takomaru...I don't think you can go far wrong with any of those 3 Voigtlander SWA lenses (10/12/15mm) as long as you can get hold of a good copy in each FL...The M mount is also a great choice if you wish to use a booster or TAP as you say.
    Agreed both Werner and Karl (amongst others) both put their 10mm and 15mm Voigtlander lenses to great use either here or over at FM.
    It's amazing just how many photographers here also post over at FM

    A few more 12mm images from yesterday at Porthleven...Cheers Barry
