    Those cooling tower shots are very impressive - almost abstract!

    I like the B&W on the cooling tower... it reminds me of this recent shot.

    David,
    Great shot inside the Silo.
    Your perspective and colors are excellent.

    Mark,
    Your portraits are always impressive.

    Mark, I have not seen the 10/2.8 varisoft before, thanks for that.

    One from sunset, still very cold as you can see.

    Cannot praise more on your postings...always inspiring
    100/2.8 variosoft was the first Minolta prime I bought. It was some 20 years back and it is very sharp and works perfectly with my a850.
    I found my weakness in using wide angle lenses and the 24/2 is no exception.

    Thanks for the low down on the 100mm varisoft lens Mark. The 24/2 is another I have not used. I also have played quite a lot with wide angle this year, as a result of acquiring a used Sony 16mm fisheye - great fun

    Partial Eclipse of the sun at sunrise today was obscured by clouds until near the end when it made a brief but atmospheric appearance.

    Nice shot David, over here in Belgium it was totally obscured by clouds. Now that the eclipse is over the clouds are clearing out

    But I had some fun last Sunday on the beach in Knokke, clearing my head from the cobwebs of the holidays:

    The snow is back again, sorry

    My new favourite lens on the A900, the diminutive 85mm F/2.8 SAM.

    The geese have had enough of this snow too

    Love the vignetting on the 85mm SAM at F/2.8

    [Yes I know that lower left goose is too close to the border, but I left it in as I wanted to show the lens was good at the edges and show the vignetting]

    Thanks David, I think it's a keeper. I was hoping for more interesting skies Sunday, the above is what I ended up with. Today, the skies are a bit too interesting, as in "raining".



    I'm really looking forward to the possibilities WRT playing with perspective that this lens offers. Stay tuned...

    A different perspective on "Fun With Sony": a different perspective makes the rather large 300/2.8 even more huge

    Pegelli, in that first pic the lens appears to be sucking an unwitting bystander into its vortex... did he survive?

    That was the owner of the lens, checking if he could hear an echo in the sun hood (just like you can put your ear to a sea-shell)

    He did survive, and he even managed to get his lens back from the many people wanting to "test" it during the day (the guy in the second shot is also not the owner)

    Lightroom 3.x does a very nice job with Sony RAW - especially in noise handling. Thanks for the kind comment.
