    Impossible to get this shot with most gear out there (not because I do not own them but they are incapable).

    I like the first one very much (but less the shallow DOF one). This looks like a fantastic space and I like the way you have handled the tones and colors. What kind of building was it ? Will it be demolished ? or could it be reaffected to something else ?

    Thank you, Annna T!

    That's an old Market Hall in Worms, Germany very close to the river Rhein - a fantastic place.

    Because of the many discounters and supermarkets we got everywhere in the last years the place went broke.
    I am not sure about its future, would like to buy it .....

    Yes, a fantastic space with an extraordinary light. What kind of reaffectation would you see there ?

    Although the space is much more confined here, this is an old jail which was reaffected as an art museum :



    (sorry for showing an E-M5 pictures).

    But I think that there is too much incoming light in your photographed space to make a museum out of it ? It would be nice as a meeting place.. coffee, restaurant.. nowadays that everyone is working on computers, there may be too much light to create an architecture atelier or something like that..

    Thanks Barry. The 70-400G is a great lens. I bought this for my trip to Namibia and S. Africa a few years ago. At that time I was using the A850 and a number of leitaxed R lenses.

    The last time my wife an I visited Cornwall was about 20 years ago. We stayed in a country club, near Praze-An-Beeble and visited places such as Lizard Point and Land's End. I enjoyed visiting that part of England, but my wife preferred the bright lights of London!

    Dongchuan Redland is located about 3 hours from Kunming. It is well known for its colourful soil. This is due to the presence of iron and copper oxides that give colours ranging from dark brown to shades of red and orange. Depending on the season and the types of crops being cultivated, the landscape here can be a visual feast of colours. Here are a few images captured with the A7R, FE55, 35-70 VE and 180 Apo-Elmarit.

    Hi Ng, that 70-400mm Sony G lens is an excellent quality lens. At 1.5KG (I had to look it up) I would have thought that it was a bit on the heavy-side to cart around on one of your long trips but it's pretty versatile, so I expect it replaced a couple of lenses in your backpack.
    Praze-an-Beeble is a delightful little Cornish village and excellently located for exploring South of Cornwall...Ladies can't resist the the bright lights of London with all those shops enticing them in...Praze is the very opposite! It just has the very basics as far as I can see... Pub/Bakers/Post-Office/Hairdressers/Cafe/Deli and that's it!

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

    I've been enjoying shooting my Leica R lenses on my new A7II. Not sure whether I love the camera itself yet or not (was hoping for a much greater improvement in the EVF than what I'm seeing, and there are some other usability issues, IMO).

    Regardless, I have enjoyed making use of my R lenses somewhere other than on my R8.

    Here's some video I shot yesterday at a Porsche owner get-together:

    http://youtu.be/IyJf98Lq1M0

    (Please excuse my horrible camera handling. I'm still practicing.)

    I'm doing a video series on YouTube covering my experiences with the A7II:

    Photo-Journalism from New Siberia (aka Connecticut)

    No artistic merit claimed for these images. Merely a cautionary tale. I moved from NYC to New England almost thirty years ago. Al Gore promised me that by 2013 the polar ice cap would be completely melted and I could wear shorts here in January. He was wrong. After almost 30 years in New England I can reliably say that global warming has failed me. I'm starting to believe that a new Ice Age is upon us. My new hope is to move to Mexico and hunt polar bears at the southern edge of the North American Ice Cap.

    All photos taken with A7S, FE 55, at F11 and 1/100th sec.

    This is a third story window. There is a covered porch on the floor below. That is what the snow is covering.



    Here's an outside view from a balcony on that level. That's about 3 feet of snow on that deck roof.


    In this view you can see a fenced in swimming pool. That fence is five feet high. To the right you can make out the drop off of a retaining wall that is more than five feet high. Tables and a bird bath can be made out by the several foot deep piles of snow that cover them.


    Here's the other side of the pool. I believe a dog sled and some huskies are buried in there somewhere.




    The roof of this garage gives you an idea of the ludicrous amounts of snow we now have.


    We've had about 60 inches of snow in the last three weeks. More is forecast for this week. The moral of this story is if you live in New England fossil fuel is your only friend. Without it I'd resemble Jack Nicholson's character at the end of the movie The Shining. Also Al Gore is a big fat dope.

    Best regards,
    John

    I lived in Chicago during one of these epic blizzards. It started on Friday evening and didn't end until early Sunday morning.

    It was sunny that Sunday, and I need to walk a few blocks to the grocery store. Trudging along the street, I nearly tripped over something buried in the snow. It was a car antenna. The antenna was still attached to the car.

    I know that Maine is even colder than where I am but to me Maine holds only happy memories because I only go there in August. To me Maine is synonymous with summer, Old Orchard Beach and photographing the Portland Head Light.

    This weather is starting to get biblical in scope. I'm starting to run out of room to throw the snow on. Of course sometimes it does look pretty.

    Well that photo would definitely have a warming effect for a sizable chunk of the population, even in the winter.

    Thanks for the summery sentiment

    To add to this, that blizzard was followed by frigid cold snap. I'm talking 12 below zero, NOT including wind chill factors. I worked in the Loop (downtown), and my route from the train station took me by the Chicago river, right by the Sears Tower - a natural wind tunnel. It was deadly.

    The freezing weather turned all that snow into solid ice (which didn't really all melt until May), so transportation was awful. God help you if you were stuck on an El that couldn't move because the third rail had frozen over. Those trains get all their heat from friction.

    The headline in the Chicago Sun Times (tabloid style paper) on Monday morning, in three inch bold fonts: "It's 72 degrees in Miami". They sold a lot of issues - half to those wishing to live vicariously, half to those who probably would stomp, shred and burn that headline.

    Memories, sorry for the off topic. Now I live in sunny California (currently 70 deg.). I wonder why.

    Dave:
    Although I envy you the climate, I have to confess to believing that if the space-time continuum ever cracks it will happen in California. I was there about 17 years ago in winter and the El Nino was going on. The rain was beyond anything Noah had to deal with. One of the guys wanted to go over to Lake Tahoe to ski. They got something like ten feet of snow. Anyway before he headed up into the mountains I checked the television to get him the latest forecast. Anyway, the big story was houses sliding off cliffs. The rains completely undermined the hills all over the state. It was surreal. Then you hear about wild fires, earthquakes, mud slides. I can't decide if it's heaven or hell. But right now I'd trade locales with you in a New York minute.

    Oh yeah, we get one or two of those "Wrath of God" type storms every year that blow in from the Pacific. I've also been stuck on I 80 during in white-out conditions.

    Earthquakes, mud slides, wild fires... all part of West Coast living. Elsewhere they have hurricanes, tornadoes, typhoons. No matter where you go, mother nature rules all.

    And it's only going to get worse...

    I've been a member here for over 4 years and liking people's pictures but as you can see, I still haven't been able to figure out how to post a larger picture....... would anyone care to enlighten a not very computer savvy person please. I'm using a Mac and export my pics to a file on my desktop to drag/drop into Flickr usually :0

    Indeed. The combination of light, composition, and processing makes for strongly compelling mood. On a more mundane level, the DoF is impressive. Michiel, was that at f/16?

    On Flickr just click on the turned right arrow on the bottom right of the screen. Pick the size you want from the drop down menu, make sure that BBC Code is highlighted, copy the contents of the box under the size and post here.

    It sounds much harder than it is.

    Michiel,

    Do you use the Contax N lenses with a manual adapter? I never minded shooting landscapes that way with the C/Y 21/2.8 Distagon. Or with tech cameras, for that matter. There are some electronic adapters out there, and even one supporting AF, but I'm not sure that they're necessary.

    Thanks,

    Matt

    You need an adapter for sure.
    I use the Kipon manual adapter with electronic contacts for in camera diafragm stearing and lensdata.
    There is also the Fringer AF adapter for sale on Alibaba.

    Maher, what was the iso / asa on the circus shot? And which 70-200/2.8 were you using, the first generation or the new one?

    Two of them are at 6400 and the 3rd at 3200. All at 2.8.

    JM, thank you. Thought I saw that you used the 70-200/2.8G. No reading = not thinking straight.

    Taken this evening inside Castle an Dinas, this is a Cornish Iron Age hill fort - Circa. 200 to 300 BC.
    Within the fort are the remains of two much older Bronze Age round burial/barrow mounds (Graves of local chieftains) - Circa 2000-1500 BC...You can just see them either side of the tree on the far left.
    The Castle consists of three ditches in concentric rings (which would have been the moats) + A rampart for the castle within as seen along the right flank.
    The irony of today is that the moats are now bone dry and the castle within is becoming a small lake.
    In Arthurian legend it is believed to be the hunting seat (Hunting Lodge) of King Arthur.

    Lovely atmosphere, Barry! (Tho' I think you mean moats - motes are bad news for photographers!)
