    In 2014 we spent a day in Cape May (the most southern point of New Jersey). Due to all kind of good and bad reasons I never got to PP and post the pictures from that trip. Here's a few from an old WW II bunker that's left on the beach there

    Re: Fun With Sony _____

    Earlier this week my 8 year old and trusty Sony A700 came back from a 3 year "loan assignment" with my brother-in-law. Since today was the 100th day of 2016 I decided to put on my Minolta 100/2.8 macro lens and see what I could find with a tour through the garden. I had forgotten how much more quiet the A700 is vs. the A850. It was a real joy to use. So while A7's seem to be the latest and greatest (and almost the norm in the Sony section on GetDPI) the A700 can still bring back some nice shots as well.

    100-1: Magnolia Stellata


    100-2: Budding leaves from a Hydrangea


    100-3: Grape Hyacinth


    100-4: Another hybrid Magnolia (liliiflora ?)


    100-5: Still in the bud


    100-6: Yellow and burgundy

    Yellow-tailed Flicker

    It's somewhat uncommon to see one of these on a branch - they're usually glued to the side of a tree, woodpecker-style. Not only was this one kind enough to wait for me while I went and fetched my camera, but he responded well to direction, too. "OK, look back over your right shoulder. Great, now raise your littly birdy-chin a bit. OK, hold it right there..." Snap.

    Fern Unfolding II

    Same fern that I posted yesterday only today with the A6300. I'm not too sure how many A6300 owners will buy an FE90mm but it certainly is a hi-IQ combination. Am really happy with the camera although I haven't even used it much on the kind of subjects I bought it for. I am confident though that if this fern had decided to attempt an escape by racing across the forest floor I would have just machine-gunned it down at 11fps...

    I don't usually post pictures that are 'just scenery,' but I couldn't resist. We've had a break in the CA drought, and many fields are looking like this again.

    Re: Fun With Sony _____

    From May 8 - 14 I participated in a photo workshop in Tuscany led by Hans Kruse (See details here).

    It was a very worthwhile experience. We had a great group of 11 photographers and Hans is an excellent workshop leader. He's a fine instructor on the technical side of things and regarding what and how to shoot he doesn't tell you what to do but he brings ideas and suggestions you have to put in practice yourself. On the one hand that's harder, but also more rewarding and avoids too much copy-cat behavior. Also what you learn that way is probably maintained and sustained a lot longer.

    I was the only Sony shooter in the group, the rest were all Canon and Nikon, but choice of equipment was never an issue and only marginally discussed. It was all about capturing the light and the beautiful landscapes.

    Here's some pictures to give you an impression, hope you like them (as much as I do )

    1: Sunset

    A850 + Min 24-105 D

    2: Misty sunrise

    A850 + Min 80-200/2.8 HS G

    3: Light rays over the hills

    A6000 + E16-50 PZ

    4: Evening light hitting the rolling hills

    A850 + Min 80-200/2.8 HS G

    5: Morning light on Villa Belvedere and the valley behind

    A6000 + E16-50 PZ

    6: Sunset near San Quirico d'Orcia

    A6000 + OM Zuiko 85/2

    7: Morning light kissing the rolling hills

    A6000 + OM Zuiko 85/2

    C&C more then welcome

    Re: Fun With Sony _____

    As you asked for C&C - I'll try...
    (I'm no professional and don't have much experience. So any of my thoughts may be wrong or just subjective (I'm sitting in front of an uncalibrated screen, lol). If something sounds dismissive or simply not nice, it wasn't meant so. I'ts because of my bad english. )

    I love the series. I did see a lot of pics of this region and Tuscany is on my list to visit once. Your pictures does me remind at it very strongly.

    1: Sunset

    A850 + Min 24-105 D

    scenery: wonderful! The bushes on the bottom may be distracting. If you want them on the picture, you need to process them better.
    processing: It's too dark in the mids and dark areas. It looks like you ETTR to the sun and did not recovered the mid and dark tones later.
    color: nice short before sunset tone. works fine here.

    2: Misty sunrise

    A850 + Min 80-200/2.8 HS G

    scenery: a magical moment. It's my favorite
    processing: the hill on the right is too dark and blue. it rivals with the houses in the center. I would try to lighten it up and turn it more green (like the other hills). Maybe less clarity for the whole picture.
    color: the blue hour with sunset clouds. maybe a touch of more green and less magenta on the tint-ruler (and some more blue on the blue-yellow tone). But I like it the way it is too.

    3: Light rays over the hills

    A6000 + E16-50 PZ

    scenery: there are three things of attraction: the road, the sunbeams and the tree group in the lower left. All in all, nothing that I can put together. I would try to crop on the road with the sun above.
    processing: It has a quite artificial HDR look. The first hill is very nice. The second (with the road) has too dark midtones, almost no highlights and too much clarity. The third hill does not connect to the second one. At least it should get a part of the processing of the second. The sky works, maybe the darkest parts are a little bit too dark.
    color: saturated green towards a desaturated blue. I often use this in landscape. But you have to recover the blue of the sky itself afterwards and get rid of any purple (or other color inconcistencies) in the clouds. At the end it should only have blue and yellow.

    4: Evening light hitting the rolling hills

    A850 + Min 80-200/2.8 HS G

    scenery: I would just crop very slightly from the left. it's distracting to see hills going up, when the picture ends. As there is a small peak there, you can crop it to the left bottom of this peak. Great scene!
    process: The front hill is good. The sky is too dark. The background hills too dull. All in all a small touch of more brightness?
    color: the corners in the sky and the roofs has too much magenta. it would try to color balance it with more blue instead of yellow (tone) and more green instead of magenta (tint).

    5: Morning light on Villa Belvedere and the valley behind

    A6000 + E16-50 PZ

    scenery: I'm jealous about the shot. I would crop the lower right corner and allso some sky away. The villa will be at 2/3 on the diagonal from top left to lower right.
    process: I like the process, but there has to be done something to get the villa more prominent. The crop is the first step, but maybe some vignetting?
    colors: great! I would try a touch of more yellow (either through with balance (blue-yellow) or the yellows only), but may end at what you have now.

    6: Sunset near San Quirico d'Orcia

    A6000 + OM Zuiko 85/2

    scenery: great moment for this scenery. The light makes waves out of the hills. The trees on the lower right corner a slightly too close to the bottom of the pic. The most prominent house is a little bit too much to the right. You may try to crop away the dark part on the very top (without cutting the clouds on the left!).
    process: recover the shadows that you can see any detail in the trees at the bottom and the houses on the hill at the left side.
    colors: it's very hard to get a good blue-yellow distribution in the golden hour. Your picture is a good example where it worked perfectly. The high saturation does even work with all the colors in the sky.

    7: Morning light kissing the rolling hills

    A6000 + OM Zuiko 85/2

    scenery: great
    process: great
    colors: the sky has a touch of too much cyan and on the hill in the background the blue turns slight towards magenta. It's because of the warm look you tried over white balance (more yellow/magenta instead of blue/green). You may change that, with a color mask or selective color correction.

    I love the series. I did see a lot of pics of this region and Tuscany is on my list to visit once. Your pictures does me remind at it very strongly.
    Hi Seb, many thanks for taking the time to look at my pictures and write such extensive comments. It's great to get input from another pair of trained eyes. You've certainly given me some ideas to try a different processing on some of these and I'll play some more with them to see if I can improve them. As you say it's all subjective and there's really no right or wrong, but still the input is very valuable for me. Even if I try some of your ideas and I don't like the result I still have learned something and that's what good critiques are all about.

    I can certainly advise you to visit Tuscany, it's a beautiful landscape but be prepared to get up early and get beautiful morning light, rest during mid day and go out again around 5:30 pm. and stay until after sunset. So Breakfast and Dinner need to move down on your priority list, but it's really worth it.

    Thats also my findings. You can get a lot creativity for your own pics out of comments from others. I'm very happy, if some ideas gave you an idea to try another processing.
    About Tuscany: Isn't it always like that? Normaly I'll get nervous at sunrise and sunset, because it's the best time to capture landscapes.
    Thanks for sharing your work!

He's a fine instructor on the technical side of things and regarding what and how to shoot he doesn't tell you what to do but he brings ideas and suggestions you have to put in practice yourself. On the one hand that's harder, but also more rewarding and avoids too much copy-cat behavior. Also what you learn that way is probably maintained and sustained a lot longer.

    I was the only Sony shooter in the group, the rest were all Canon and Nikon, but choice of equipment was never an issue and only marginally discussed. It was all about capturing the light and the beautiful landscapes.

    Here's some pictures to give you an impression, hope you like them (as much as I do )

    1: Sunset

    A850 + Min 24-105 D

    2: Misty sunrise

    A850 + Min 80-200/2.8 HS G

    3: Light rays over the hills

    A6000 + E16-50 PZ

    4: Evening light hitting the rolling hills

    A850 + Min 80-200/2.8 HS G

    5: Morning light on Villa Belvedere and the valley behind

    A6000 + E16-50 PZ

    6: Sunset near San Quirico d'Orcia

    A6000 + OM Zuiko 85/2

    7: Morning light kissing the rolling hills

    A6000 + OM Zuiko 85/2

    C&C more then welcome

    With best regards, K-H.

    Re: Fun With Sony _____

    Just received a new A6300 and I've been trying it with several lenses. I really like the way this little cam performs with my two Contax N lenses (24-85 and 70-200) using a Fringer III adapter. PD autofocus is fantastic with these lenses.. Also hoping to get a TechArt adapter for my orphaned M mount lenses as well.

    A pair of bluejays have been working on this nest for the past week. Shot with the 70-200 through our bedroom window.




    and here is one of the jays on the nest, shot with the Tamron 150-600 using LAE3 adapter. Enterprising birds also found a cable tie to hold the nest together.
