    Sorry about that, Barry. I'll try not to do that again. BTW, I really like your picture, and I bet that would make for a nice print. Creativity is a good thing.

    A7 + LA-EA4 + 50mm 1.4 + 28-75mm 2.8
    I think these would look great in BW...will give it a go later.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Beautiful afternoon at Rainbow Bay, Snapper rocks at Coolangatta. A7s and FE 55/1.8 First two are with 35 Lux FLE. I was fortunate to be asked by a children fashion designer from England with her model, to take some shots for them.

    I am really liking the A7s There are quite a few improvements over the A7r, such as a more sturdy battery door. The SD card door also seems to be more solid. I suspect the A7s will be my main work horse.

    I was very fortunate that these storm clouds came over as the weather took a complete change for the worse. Even more fortunate to get back to my car without getting soaked.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    egad! 17mm not wide enough?
    at the world trade site; the new Calatrava construction. 17mmTSE shifted to the max, pointed up a bit and corrected for perspective in C1.
    was able to sneak up and poke the lens through a gap in the fence as well, but too close (shop posted later on from the fence slot over by the white pickup seen in the next shot); ideally would have been back farther, used vertical orientation, but too much stuff in the foreground for that

    both images not as sharp as i would have expected, hand held at about f9 and 1/500 or 1/800

    I love the way the 7S renders. There's such an inherent peace within the images.
    Very nice shots.

    viewed through the fence (across the street) dramatic and shifted to the max, still had to point up; but keystone correction in C1 cropped too much on the right

    I think you made a typo; the correct name is Calatrava (a Spanish architect from Valencia, now living and teaching in Zurich, Switzerland).
    I remember seeing him in an interview where he said that he was interested by organic structures and inspired by that photographer who tried to capture movement : Etienne Jules Marey (he even had one of his "chronography" in his office).

    Not so sure the weather fitted in so nicely today with a lot of people around here...As Hurricane Bertha hit the NW Cornish coast pretty badly in places.
    No point in using a tripod as it would have been blown away off of the cliffs, in fact I had a pretty hard time just trying to stand up straight...Cheers Barry

    I'd discarded this show a while back but found it again recently and rather liked it. Even found the original, I'd thought I'd lost it.

    IMO definitely B&W in this shot. As a thumb rule where colors isn't the dominating idea or part of the object, where we see structured texture, then B&W might work best.

    Also B&W to me. The green OOF leaves are somewhat distracting in the color version since they're so bright/saturated and contrast with the other more muted tones in the image.

    In the B&W they are less obtrusive.

    Might even be better if they weren't there at all, I think they're too vague to help providing depth in the image.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    I prefer the colour shot. The contrast between the bright leaves and the subtle hues of the stonework is pleasing. I like the b&w too but I feel the impact of the leaves in the foreground is lost.
    The weathering of the elements on the bridge over time is rendered more gently in the colour image, which I feel suits the subject well.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    For me colour. I like to see that this bridge in Heidelberg is made from that typical red limestone.
    B&W works much better in your garage pictures especially with the CitroŽn Traction and the Deux Cheveaux which sort of are from the B&W era.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Isn't it strange how we all differ as no clear winner.
    If I had to choose - I would go with the B&W as G43 and pegelli have described my thoughts exactly.
    Michiel...I think that bridge has been through a few era's of it's own...B&W, Colour and just a few others :-)
    Cheers Barry
    PS. But then what do I know!....I can't spell and I'm colour blind :-)

    First of all apologies to Doug for cash in on his "waves" idea...But since I'm surrounded by them!...They become hard to ignore...Cheers Barry

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Thanks guys for the lively discussion. There are arguments for both sides. I agree that the oof leaves in the foreground are not the best in C or BW, not the greatest shot anyhow but it was part of the workshop for practice reasons.
    Feedback is always welcome as is critics - we need more ,likes are pleasing but critics brings us foreword.

    Lovely waves Barry, carry on! (i have only the waves of rivers Nekar and Rhein sometimes of Lake Lugano around me) Astonishing how many colors are in these waves...
    Great museum shots Michiel with nice structures.

    Here is one more in BW:

    "Wunnenstein"

    BW conversion of 3 HDR shots.
    The challenge in post was to get the moving ship sharp despite the 3 exposures of the HDR and i removed an ugly crane next to the Old Bridges right towers top.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Take a guess: what are these contraptions ?




    Yes you guessed it right: these are wind-violins !



    Unfortunately as there was no favourable wind and I can't testify to what it sounds like or even if it produces sound at all.

    Let's try:

    @ Super Angulon, lovely suspense in that picture
    @ Barry Haines, great lines and rolls in the waves, only the saturation feels a bit over the top (matter of taste I think)
    @ Michiel Schierbeek, the first one doesn't do much for me (too many lines which don't go anywhere particular) but the second is excellent. I love the symmetry broken by the faint reflection of the floor with the structure's own shadow
    @ W.Utsch, great processing and I understand the ship must have been the hardest. I think the composition screams "square crop" to me, there isn't too much in the foreground water anyway and it will give a great old hassy look.
    @ Knorp, first is a bit busy, but gives good context, I like the second better, it's a less distracting background and better positioned violins.

    He, that wasn't too hard

    Now I only need an a7 to participate in this thread, but I guess that will take some time.
