    It doesn't hurt to take the M8 along on the golf cart. This heron was shot with the 135 3.4 APO, on a beautiful day. DR

    Brasstown Bald fire station tower, highest point in Georgia, shot from the parking lot.
    135 f/2.8 Elmarit (with eyes).

    Attachment 145

    Parking lot shot from tower lower deck. Same lens.

    Attachment 146

    Don't know what happens to images upload to this site but they look a little washed out, as compared to them on my screen and in print.

    Are you converting them to sRGB? A lot of people leave them in AdobeRGB or ProPhotoRGB etc and then the files won't render correctly in non-colour managed browsers such as Microsoft's masterpiece. If you're on a Mac with Safari or have another colour managed browser the files will look fine even if you've forgotten to convert to sRGB.

    Re: Fun time / M8 images

    Thanks Graham!

    Indeed, one should ALWAYS convert jpegs destined for web viewing to the sRGB colorspace before uploading!

    The only other potential issue that is site-dependant is the original size of what you upload. Our default viewing size here is set to a maximum of 900 pixels for attatchements. Any image you attatch that's larger will get it's forum view re-sized by the internal software. This internal resize is okay, but not as good as doing it ahead of time in Photoshop. Note that if you do attatch an image larger than 900 pixels, clicking on it will render the full size image.

    Cheers,
    Jack

    Looking at the bokeh - is that one of the Xenon-Summarit(old) family?
    I love the colour rendering - until now I had only seen B&W shots with it.

    Neat shot jaapv! I definitely think the 28 is THE killer focal length for the M8

    I saw that, but (stupidly) assumed it was somebody working behind the glass in the booth...

    Out of curiousity, was this cropped, and how close were you? I am trading my 90 Macro for a 90 AA and I am wondering exactly what I am setting myself up for.

    Re: Fun time / M8 images

    Sure, but that's you I have used my 90 macro so little, mostly due to the f/4 combined with longer focal length, so maybe it will be the same for me. I guess I am very much a tripod-less, available light lover, but I didn't realise to what extent when I bought the macro lens kit. They cost almost the same, so I simply should have bought the 90AA from day one. Oh well, live and learn. I have found someone interested in trading a 90AA in perfect condition for the kit. Sadly there is no packaging there, just lens and covers, but that is good enough I suppose. The 90 macro does have outstanding bo-ke (my new favorite spelling of that term, more accurately reflecting the diphthong-less nature of Japanese), but that doesn't compensate fully for my style of shooting. My main concern with the 90AA is whether it can focus close enough for my taste, giving a large enough magnification, hence my question above.

    Carsten: The image is not cropped, just resized for the web. I was just about at the minimum focus distance (1 meter).

    Well it is me, but that was exactly my situation with the macro --- loved the size, loved the closer focus ability, but hated the f4 aperture and in the end never used because of that. I will add that while I still don't use the 90 focal a lot, I use my 90AA more often than I did the macro. And when I do use the 90AA, I am usually shooting it wide or f2.8 specifically to isolate the background...

    IMO and FWIW only,

    Re: Fun time / M8 images

    John:

    I think the shot works, but would like to see more shadow detail and more contrast --- maybe bump the exposure in the raw to let the windows blow, but at the same time pull up the shadows?

    Here is my two-minute rework of your jpeg above, and obviously working the raw would be a lot better, but what do you think of the effect?

    much nicer, I'm alway worried about blowing highlights. I'll go back and play some more with it.

    Thanks for the suggestion...
