    Thanks Dave and Jorgen;

    I was using 50mm macro on A900 for all the image. The A900 file is huge, so I do have large file, but I decided to make the pic small so it upload quickly.

    Jorgen, I saw that you are in Samut Prakan, I hope the situation in Bangkok does not affect you. _panya

    Steven, if you are a "rank amateur", you have a great future ahead of you! That first image looks more like MFDB!
    VERY nice!

    Here in Samut Prakan, everything is peace and harmony, at least on the surface. My only problem with the riot is that I regret not going in there to take some photos, but I don't like being shot at

    Kuau, Lovely shots, are they exposure blends or single shot exposures?

    Re: Fun Pictures with Sony . . . .

    A few from Macau, all with the 24-70. The weather was disastrous during the entire stay, the sun only shining when I was on the way to the airport, as usually is the case. I only took the 24-70 and 135, but found myself longing for the 16-35 in the crammed spaces of the city. Perhaps a better combination would have been the 16-35 and 85.

    Macau is a wonderful city, almost like an ancient Portugal in the middle of Asia. It's amazing the amount of history you're surrounded with every where you ago. I will surely plan another visit during summer when the skies are not completely grey.

    A BIG welcome from me - Lovely shots - the second of the water shots I liked particularly, and the Antelope Canyon are splendid . . . .. but I feel that perhaps it's a little like Albert's daughters . . you have to be especially clever to take a bad shot Speaking of which, Albert, they're growing up, and now they're even more enchanting!
    Edward - Love the Macau pictures, and wish I'd been there, with 16-35 or without

    Just this guy you know

    Another nice happy shot Albert! I like the guy picking his nose, second row down on the left! It take something to get everyone looking good in such a large group, just great.

    Great photos, Edward, and superb colours.

    I agree, it's a fantastic city, one where you can walk around for days.

    A small project I have given myself is to photograph some old ruined buildings around here, before they vanish.

    This one is a composite of 3 handheld autobracketed shots with the 135mm. Wish I hadn't cut off the chimney pot though...

    Re: Fun Pictures with Sony . . . .

    Great stuff from Kuau, Albert, Edward & Panya. I always think the colours from the Sony are great - better than from most.

    Any why medium format in the face of 25mp, portability, Zeiss lenses and the ability to stitch of you need monster files, one has to ask?

    It takes a good personable photographer to get these sort of people shots and everyone of your young people images are really great and the kids are giving you their "all" in my view. This says a lot for you as much as for them.

    Unfortunately we live in a society in the UK now where mothers and children of all ages view photographers as potential peodophiles. Even official photographers of juveniles are screened by police in advance and often have to have both parents consent in writing.....tends to take the innocence away and lose the magic moments somehow.

    One day we shall wake up and realise that we live in an age without any photographic records of children. It is sad as kids make the best people shots in my opinion.

    A friend of mine had his first London Salon entry accepted in the fifties, it was of a little girl playing with her hoola hoop in the street of a very deprived area of northern England. Today if he tried to take a similar image he would probably be arrested and the gallery prosecuted for exhibiting it. How sad is that?

    I spent the day with the A900 and Zeiss 16-35, f2.8. This is such a good lens and nice to handle.

    "Medieval Cloisters" This is the real thing! I just love the dynamic range of this camera.

    Yes Dave, it is really sad. Those fabulous pictures of street urchins in Glasgow could not be taken now. Don't try to photograph London buses either:

    Jono,
    Great candid shot and expression with my favorite portrait lens.
    Love the way it reduces backgrounds to nice smooth bokeh and really
    makes the subject pop. I've been using this lens since January converted to work on my 1ds3. Can't get enough of this lens.
    I'm sure if you and Edward keep posting pictures like this that Douglas will break down and get one eventually.

    Cheers,

    Wayne

    Oh, like both--an old tractor seat (or some other farm implement) and maybe a buckeye leaf?? Looks like my buckeyes anyhow which are just leafing out here. I really like what you get from your Sony---you know I like your photography--so this isn't a 'good food, must be great pots' post LOL.

    Thank you Diane - the respect is absolutely mutual.
    The saddle is actually Emma's old bicycle, which is mouldering behind the office in the garden. The leaves are Horse Chestnut - but maybe that's the same thing?

    as for the 'good food, must be great pots quote . . . that's wonderful, I've not heard it before!

    On the other hand, the Sony really is a fine pot!

    Here are a couple more with the 135 Zeiss.

    Socks - hung out to dry

    Cool portrait, Jono. Looks like something from a western movie. The title of the second one just has to be "Escape"

    Your jewelry shots are really good, Edward. I think I have something to learn there.

    Thank you Jorgen Just normal product shots with high key lighting, nothing special but it's the jewelry that is fantastic.

    Nah... don't be modest. Good jewelry photography is only easy if you know what you're doing, and most people don't. Have you ever been to the jewelry fair? There's enough bad photography there for a lifetime and then some.

    I see what you mean Jorgen

    Believe it or not most jewelers are cheap people and they will not pay good photographers to do their photography. Most companies hire kids to do the photos in house with P&S cameras.

    Luckily I don't rely on photography for my living, otherwise I would starve

    Wonderfully clever composition. The con trails from the jet form the stem of the flower whose head of course is the cloud. You have a marvelous eye
