quite an extreme closeup shot...size of the clip holding the ruby is about 1mm diameter.
my guess it locks on to another mating tug or barge and can adjust deck heights by racking along the tracks (there is a track on both sides.
I was able to test an S2 for the weekend. Unfortunately, the weather sucked. Fortunately, there were some bikers in town (as well as an old Beatle). All with the 70mm and developed in LR3. This is my first experience with MF, BTW.

And this is a 5 shot pano of the Grand Place. It would print 150cm wide at 300 dpi. Also with the S2 and the 70mm.
Looks to me like LR is leaving some purple fringe in the highlights on the chrome.
Jack, where do you see the purple fringe in GMB's photos. I am struggling to see it on my laptop. I have seen it before in a few of my photos, but usually only in extreme conditions such as bright sun highlights on chrome or water droplets.
GMB, nice photos. I really like the pano. I can imagine the detail it contains.
There's quite a bit of fringing, purple and cyan (but much more purple/magenta), in the second shot (showing the 125 cubic inches emblem). Some of the others look like reflected colors, but that frame has significant fringing. It shows more on the enlarged view.
You are right Dale. I don't know how I overlooked the second photo. Some of it may be reflected color as well (similar color as the gas tank), but there is no doubt there is fringing in some places (e.g., the 125 engraving). I was looking back at other photos in this thread and also noticed in the close-up of the watch.

I had overlooked that last night. Here is a corrected version. I followed David's advice. There are also a lot of reflections.
This is a great instructional example of why desaturating one color isn't a good idea, because it shows how desaturating any single color primary or secondary can have a significant effect on the overall final color accuracy. If we were shooting these for a paying motorcycle manufacturer client to use on their website or product brochures, I can assure you these would be rejected for either the purple fringing and/or the incorrect tank colors.
Here are crops of both, before up top, and your after beneath for easier direct comparison:
Desaturating is not something you want to do to control color fringing. It will affect other colors as well. If processing in C1 they do have tools for this alone.
Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

Jack--Point taken. Fortunately, I am shooting these for fun and not for a paying client.
I may download a test version of C1 5 (or use the v 4.x which I still have) and try it.
Of course, I could also deal with the issue in PS and use a layer mask in order to apply desaturating selectively. Not something you would do 300 shots but for the 3-4 here doable.
Another White Sands Dune image.
And the color version for Jack :-)

And Jack likes the COLOR version!
And this Bill likes the B&W!
Another from last week in Banff N.P.
And another from Banff. The weather was awful but the light was great!
Bill, those Banff shots are nice too. I bet they'd look really good in B&W!
Seriously, that second capture is a portfolio print --
Bill, you're making me want to get back up to Banff (haven't been there in 15 years or so).
Bill, Stuart, thank you for your kind comments.
You too, Jack - here is your very own version! (Incidentally, the white spot on the left is a loon, clearly seen on a 30 inch screen but more of an artifact on the web!)
Another pano from Banff - four shots with the 45 "D", P65+
I'm in Yosemite teaching a private, customized workshop so not shooting a lot. But I managed to grab this frame this morning at Tioga Lake. Elevation here is just under 10,000 feet. Posted from my laptop, so colors may need a rework when I get home on my big box. P65+, DF and 80 LS:
I had missed that one initially. Nice use of the full 28 for framing that one! I love old broken down buildings, but in our area it's extremely rare to find one with much of any color at all. Where was that one taken?
Captured on the Greek Islands.
It's also rare to find colour on the ground floor of these ruins as the lower level was traditionally used to house animals and is typically left as rough stonework. This was the exception. Given the state of the stairs and floorboards, venturing upstairs in these ruins is pure madness. I was fortunate to be able to capture this shot from an adjoining room complete with concrete floor!
I really like Tioga Lake, Jack - reflections turn me on and the colors look fine on my laptop!
A 5 shot panorama from the H2 & P20 taken on my recent trip to NZ. Just out of Te Anau on the road to Queenstown, taken about 9.30am, I liked the way the clouds wreathed the hilltops and the pastoral foreground (which I would have included a bit more of it weren't for the big ugly shed in it! (larger size on Flickr)

That was then, these days there's a queue...
Finally got around to printing out this pano I made during the PODAS Glacier trip. I had about 88" of wall space to work with, so I had to slightly DOWN size this to print it out at 22x80. For now, I've just got it stuck to my wall with push-pins, but it looks pretty darn impressive even to me.
Thats why I usually get up at Stupid:30 and hike around with LED headlights on my forehead.
I find most perfer the evening shots, and I being a natural morning person....have at least that advantage. I also try finding out new places to shoot that haven been overdone.
But I do understand what your saying. It's crazy out there in in the early AM at some places.
