These are both beautiful, Warren! One would never know that you were standing amidst throngs of tourists to capture this scene.Just got back from a trip to Hawai'i and not ready to spend all day working yet. Here are two images of Onomea Waterfalls in the Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden. The sun was going in an out of the clouds and other people wanted see the waterfalls as well so I had to stay about 45 minutes to get a handful of different viewpoints and focal lengths.
These are my favorite two that were taken from basically the same spot. I keep going back and forth on the focal length I prefer. Even though I bracketed to be sure, these are both from a single exposure.

daring are we? i wouldnt risk my sensor with this kind of condition.Another side to Sydney's Vivid festival, this time within the disused tram tunnels running from the Sydney Harbour Bridge to Wynyard. I've wanted to get down here since I first moved to Australia (13 years ago) and finally have the chance, albeit with crowds and crazy lighting!
All with Fuji GFX100S and Pentax 645 28-45mm lens. Some hand-held with high ISO and IBIS; others with mini-tripod (not permitted, but hey!) and still pretty high ISO to allow short enough shutter speeds to capture the changing light.
Didn’t watch the video, so I may be repeating. If you focus at infinity, a laser will hit your sensor (or retina!) at a point. All those parallel rays. So that much light at a point is MUCH brighter than the sun and will destroy whatever it focuses on.Not sure I understand... How was it risking the sensor?
