    A day off from recent business trip to Korea. Some of these images seem to have 3D quality. What do you think?

    Thanks toddbee & Shelby. The lens kind of surprise me. It's Minolta 50/3.5 macro. I look at most my picture and found that if I shoot with f/3.5 or f/4, it seems to produce nice 3D. Usually I used it for macro and shoot at f/8 or f/11, so never noticed it before.

    Re: Fun Pictures with Sony . . . .

    Some days ago my new toy arrived, the A700 with the 70-300G – a joy to use. At first I went out into my garden and shot borage and basil, contre-jour. The next day I had a close look at my daughter and her friends before their A-level ball. Finally I went for a walk to our lake and ascended a tower in the historic city.
    Hope you like them. Special regards to Jono; I had to come to a compromise, so the A900 + 70-400 has to wait for some years.

    Thanks to all who commented. It's a great lens, fully sharp at maximum aperture, though I usually use it one stop down for dof. It's not a fast focuser even with the limiter, but after a while you learn how to adapt to it. It is the sharpest 400 mm I've ever used. And it's even better at more moderate focal lengths.

    I was a little stretched putting the thread together, had to learn the image thing here, and should have included more info.

    #1 Red Rock Canyon ...70-400 @ 150mm

    #2 Blind road off the Colorado river.. 15-20 miles SW of Moab 70-400 @ 135mm

    #3 Coral Dunes State park 70-400 @ 400mm

    #4 Somewhere, midway, along the 110 mile Shafer trail in the heart of Canyonlands. 24-70 @ 24mm

    #5 Canyonlands seasoned with a bit of the Green River and its void... 16-35 @ 16mm

    #6 Arches National Parks, South Window and beyond with a hint of sunrise behind me.. 16-35 @ 16mm

    #7 Again, deep in the heart of Canyonlands.. 70-400 @ 135mm x 5 pano

    Hi Bill!

    Well the first pano was a little after 6:00pm and the last one was at 8:20pm on the way out of the park.
    Haven't printed them yet so I would like to see them too!

    None of them were very far from the road... the girls aren't quite ready for longer hikes yet

    Sigma 50mm f1.4

    Just picked up this lens ( Thanks Shelby)

    And a few tests with my "Kung Fu" girls.
    I don't know why they are so in to this lately... maybe it's the movie "Kung Fu Panda"

    (No animals were harmed during the making of this documentary)

    Albert

    The "Kung Fu" girls...



    A roundhouse kick to the head...



    A retaliatory kick to the ribs...

    Wow - quite a kick in the second one. Oh to be young and flexible .

    Were you using the Sony flash? You picked up a lot of the ambient light which looks great. Any special settings?

    I know... it hurts just watching them

    I used a Quantum Turbo 2x2 and a Qflash T5d-R with a small Quantum softbox attached (Q-68 I believe... about 1ft x 1ft. in size) with the FreeXwire transmitter mounted on the hotshoe and receiver mounted on the side of the Qflash. Softbox was about 5 ft. in front of them off to the right on a light stand.

    I had an ND .9 B+W filter over then lens to get my aperture down to f2 and shutter speed around f 1/30 sec.

    I exposed for the sky so it wouldn't clip (about -2 EV) and brought up the flash to exposure on the faces. Pretty dramatic light.

    You wanna pay for it Terry?

    Style or not, the Leica is not in my future... too much $$$

    I'm actually probably getting a rz67 ProII and a phamiya for the commercial work and going to shoot a pair 5dmkII cams for wedding work. Don't really want to shoot canon any more, but the studio that I shoot weddings for is all canon, plus they're wanting me to do some cinema (fusion?) as well.

    The sony... probably my favorite camera of all time... is going bye bye for one reason... money.

    I'd LOVE and S2 (if it ever materializes)
