That Rolls is ostentatious and ghastly! (says the guy whose camera costs more than his car)
Yea I shoot short mountains.
Pfffft @ automobiles - my new baby has back -
Man, could I use one of those right now.....
Love this tractor so I went out and took a pic of me patting her rear end..LOL
Love the shot Peter! Going to scrape that nice lawn down to smooth dirt?
My 2 year old son loves tractors, they are actually something fascinating: I have a brutal collection of pictures of these beasts.....
H2 with P21 about a year ago...

Me at Photokina:
Gray-Ham ... Me have idea ... you bring big club and steal many shiny boxes for getdpi clan.
Then along came a spider...
Every once in a while you need to shake things up a bit; step outside the box so to speak. Anyone who knows me knows that I shoot landscape and very rarely anything else; and all my landscape is done using medium format digital. Yes, I will occasionally shoot wildlife but that's shot using an older digital 35mm; even rarer still is the occasional person, so rare that I call then human or family landscapes.
What am I leading up to? How about restoring (or attempting to) a 95 year old image that has seen better days. I was asked a couple days ago if I could "do anything" with a wedding photography of a friends grandparents that was taken around 1910. The image was torn, faded, missing pieces, dirt, dusty, and scratched. I said sure I'll give it a try.
The image was too large for my Epson scanner to I decided to set it up in the studio and copy it using my Phase 645 medium format camera and digital P30+ back and a 75-150 lens. What you see was taken at 1/7 at f/4.5 at a focal length of 90mm. The image was processed using CS3; the finished image was printed on Hahnemuhle Fineart Baryta paper on an Epson 9800.
Bottom line? I liked the finished result and Jim the grandson loved it.
Good job on the shoulder Don! I must say, however, I like the older, more neutral tone. That's just preference -- overall I think you did a superb job.
Been wandering around out west for the past several days ...
That pine tree just about jumps off the screen... Nice to have different scenery to shoot once in a while.
Only a street away from my place. I've been meaning to take a photo of this for months:
And in keeping with the theme of decay...
Even closer to home, this is literally the view out of my bedroom window. It's actually a beautiful street except for this:
Nice photos Graham -- that is like my neighborhood -- I may have posted these before, but since we are on the theme:
The last one was 35mm...
And in Iceland -- this was film, but 6x7:
Contax 645 with 80mm lens and Sinarback 54M

Longest clean shutter speed for P45 @iso50? Daylight with neutral density filter.
Is the first image a stitch?
Very nice regardless!
Very nice Graham.
I've been having tons of fun on my nightly 3-4 mile walks around the neighborhood with my new gear. I tend to carry something to defend myself in bad areas where I took my old gear. But now, it's a totally different story even around my neighborhood with a police station behind my home!
ALPA 12 Max / 28HR / P45+
15s f/5.6 @ ISO400
Took a group of Germans on a photo tour of Tallinn today. Took a few photos myself on the way:
Hmmm... this thread is quiet.
From a few hours ago. Test shots for some new hopefuls. Still some retouching to do.

A lot of us Americans are watching the news to see how our future is looking. May account for some lack of activity here Meanwhile, beautiful images but I'm curious about that night time shot of the building. If you had used a PC lens could you have eliminated that "tilt" of the buildings.
Yes, that's the building I was talking about. I assumed all the walls of the building were vertical and that the strange appearance was due to lens distortion. Forgive my architectural ignorance, it has quite the Leaning Tower of Pisa look to it... I also quite like the image of the two models caught mid-stride in the air. Please don't tell me you got that one on the first take

Beautiful landscapes !
I must say I'm amazed by all the details and quality of my new H3DII. It's a real pleasure.
Here an example of my flowers shoots.
Here is P45+ shot
with 80mm (my MF 'walk around, in cities)
Kind of wonder what people really think of Portobello Road! (I have THREE other shots of people photographing the signs - to each his own- I like photographing photographers! LOL)

Really like the Contax for walking around, esp the 80mm
every once in a while, even the autofocus get's it right!
PS C1 processing on this. No post except the std 34% sharpening and WB. The P45+ makes it easy

What I do for a living (Yawn)
Notice now thrilled everyone looks.
The empty seats held folks who just had to take a break after three days of this.

At least it pays. LOL
Of course you can!
(And it wasn't the three-cornered hat that tipped me off!)
Of course, the only un-manned mac at the table.
We met in the old Commandant's house at the Charleston Navy yard where they keep the USS Constitution.
It demonstrates that you can rent just about anything.
Okay, so you're going to force me to ask --- what's with the three-corner hat???
The park service folks used them as candy dishes.
The place was built in 1804, so I guess they tried to put us in the mood.
Chris at Capture Integration came through once again; I have a shinny brand new Cambo RS1000 and P45+ to test while we’re at the North Rim next week. The kit consisting of the RS, P45, 24mm and 47mm lens arrived here at noon today and for the next 6 hours I put it through its paces. My immediate thoughts after 6 hours are that I really like this system. I’ve tested my Mamiya 28mm with the P45+ and find that the corners fall off just as reported, compared to the 24mm with is totally sharp.
The images were taken with the Cambo RS1000, 47mm lens then merged with CS3.
I have all day tomorrow to get used to the new workflow that it takes shooting with a TC then we’re off to the North Rim.
Did I mention that I really really like this camera?
I really enjoy these images you post. This is the kind of photography that I love and you do it very well. Looking forward to some more... meantime enjoy playing with your new kit. BTW, aside from corner sharpness do you have any other thoughts about the difference in the Mamiya 28 and the 24.
