Sigma DP2 Merrill shots


"What a difference a day (or a week this time of year) makes". Bixby Road in the countryside south of Ithaca near Erin, NY at Stoney Hill Orchard. Orchard is already closed up for the season and not a soul in sight. Trees that were left unpicked are still carrying fermenting apples for the deer to enjoy. Compare this scene to the same shot I took about 2 weeks ago when the foliage was near peak and orchard was jammed with people. Using the Sigma DP2M again as my backup because newly purchased HB 907x is on the way back to Hasselblad for repair already. New processing workflow for the DP2M: Process raw in Photoshop Sigma x3f plugin to save TIFF file to LR which is then exported to Topaz Ai Gigapixel for enlargement to 42 MP TIFF file that is sent back to LR for export as a jpg to Flickr. Click image for the full size jpeg. Shot at ISO 100, f/11 on tripod.

Very nice shoot !
