    David, I'd like to see that beech in color. I loved beeches when I lived out east, and if I recall correctly, those leaves should be a lovely warm brown, while the back will be gray. Should be a nice color combination with the blue sky.

    Good one Didn't see that one coming (must have been too busy getting out of the way).

    I don't have any winter shots of it against the blue sky. That's a good idea. I'll try it when the weather clears.

    Here's that same shot unprocessed.



    And here's another shot of that same tree from back in December using a flash at night.

    DavidE: Beautiful photographs of the beech tree and the ride in Vegas (you used that lens spectacularly in Vegas!). The second two photographs are also cool. Did the flash pick up snow in the second shot? It's a neat effect. Cheers,

    Yep, I just opened the window and fired away with the flash attached. Wasn't sure what I would get, but was hoping the snow would show up -- whether in focus or out of focus.

    HI Matt
    Thank you - don't want a D700 . . . you can't imagine how badly I don't want one (I did have one, and a D3 . . never could get to grips with the colour).
    I do have an A900 and a zeiss 135 f1.8 though, and that's probably better for action stuff.

    On the other hand, I think that jumping shot works better with the blur, at least in black and white.

    all the best

    Yesterday's post. M8.2 + 24mm elmar + B+W 092 filter. Four frames handheld stitched. The 24mm is an all around sensational lens, but really excels at IR.

    Today's post. More snow. M8.2 + 24mm Elmar + B+W 092. I shoot most of these at f 5.6 and ISO 640. That gives me 1/60 plus or minus which is ok for handholding with this lens.

    Jono: I was being partly facetious. I figured if you wanted one, you'd have it (and your photography clearly doesn't suffer from the lack of one). I haven't checked over there recently. Did you give up on m4/3's? The blurred jumping shot is cool in B&W. Cheers.

    Woody: Striking angle on the architecture shot. The three elements in your third shot and the tonality work very well. Soft vector to the right.

    DavidE: Another great shot from that hotel lobby. I have to say that it really seems atypical of "Vegas".

    Cheers.

    These days, there's always a newer, more expensive hotel, like the Aria, that is trying to attract the upper-tier gamblers. Apparently, the $2.99 lobster-and-steak dinner doesn't cut it with this group.

    It's all lost on me, as I don't gamble. I just go to Vegas for some of the tradeshows there.

    Here's a view of the Aria hotel from the outside. I have no idea what the canoe sculpture in the lower right-hand corner is all about. It was in front of one of the other Center Center hotels.

    HI Matt

    I certainly haven't given up on M4/3 - really enjoying the EP1 with the pana 45 macro (makes a good and small companion to an M9). . . dithering whether to get an EP2.
    Today however was with the A900 and the 135 f1.8 - slow at focusing but lovely images.

    Thank you - certainly sharpness wasn't an option, so one may as well make a virtue of necessity!

    David, the outdoor shot of the casino is just what I like. Great demo of the 24.

    Have a few more to share....... now with the M8.2 and the Zeiss 21 f2.8 Biogon (This is one sharp lens!!)

    #2


    #3


    Still getting used to shooting with this thing. I can't seem to automatically grab the camera and shoot - a lot of fiddling going on and my fingers keeps getting in the way when I focus...... It's fun learning it though.

    Very nice work... beautiful, clean lines, and nice colors. Looking forward to more.

    Jono: Too many good camera choices. I still have my GH1. Just haven't used it recently. The m4/3's form factor and the interchangeability of lenses is very compelling. Cheers.

    Roan, great shots with the 50/1.1 and the Zeiss 21. I'd love to see what that Zeiss can do on an M9.

    It's all lost on me, as I don't gamble. I just go to Vegas for some of the tradeshows there.

    Here's a view of the Aria hotel from the outside. I have no idea what the canoe sculpture in the lower right-hand corner is all about. It was in front of one of the other Center Center hotels.
    David: Nice image. Slick, modern, hotel-anywhere. The canoe/kayak sculpture seems like a very strange thing to find in Vegas. Not an outdoorsy kind of place! I'm not a gambler either. I've been in Vegas three times: once while on leave from Twentynine Palms (1969), once on my way to St. George (2002), and once to meet my daughter (2004). Cheers.

    Have a few more to share....... now with the M8.2 and the Zeiss 21 f2.8 Biogon (This is one sharp lens!!)


    Still getting used to shooting with this thing. I can't seem to automatically grab the camera and shoot - a lot of fiddling going on and my fingers keeps getting in the way when I focus...... It's fun learning it though.

    +1. The quality of light is very nice. Thanks for sharing. Cheers.

    Six years in the Reserves from 1965-71. Sort of a semi-Semper Fi. Cheers.
