    ZoranC, thank you for those words. Im very please that this image could evoke such a feeling from someone, especially expressed so elegantly.

    Some evidence that the FE 24-70 OSS is quite useful as a quasi-macro lens. These are all at 70 mm, centre crop. With so many mpx available, large prints are still possible.

    Hi Tim
    Not coming home early, we always planned to come back on Friday . . . some faint hope of sun tomorrow - we're planning to drive to Penberth, walk to the pub at Treen for lunch, then walk down to Pednvounder to check out the sand and have a swim (maybe)

    Cheers Barry
    HI Barry - trouble is that if you're heading out of Cornwall then Bodmin Moor is too soon to stop . . . . and if you're heading into Cornwall then it's too late!

    I actually love Cornwall, and I guess I'd move back down here if it was feasible (crappy weather notwithstanding) but then I'm a St Ives boy so why wouldn't I?

    Aaaaah Barry - you want rescuing - I have two vicious dogs in my car, but I'll ask Emma if she'll pick you up in her nice 1994 Saab convertible

    Just for the record, the grasshoppers are actually locusts I shot in South Africa. Our Canadian grasshoppers are just plain green. (And it's not easy being green!)

    HI Barry - trouble is that if you're heading out of Cornwall then Bodmin Moor is too soon to stop . . . . and if you're heading into Cornwall then it's too late!

    I actually love Cornwall, and I guess I'd move back down here if it was feasible (crappy weather notwithstanding) but then I'm a St Ives boy so why wouldn't I?

    Aaaaah Barry - you want rescuing - I have two vicious dogs in my car, but I'll ask Emma if she'll pick you up in her nice 1994 Saab convertible
    Well many thanks Jono for at least considering it - I wouldn't have even bothered personally.
    Plus you have saved me from your 2 vicious dogs - What a thoroughly decent chap you are.
    Could you please thank Emma on our behalf for the offer of a lift in her open top car in Cornwallís monsoon season but we already have a 2014 VW Touran with a lid on it.
    It's now become a mute point anyway as my wife, the cat and myself all took a vote (2 hands to one paw)...Actually I jest it was unanimous, the fact is NOBODY wanted to venture further south and deeper into Cornwall, especially closer to sea level after the current storms that we have experienced of late...So thatís great news as no need to stop and take us to St Ives, not that we wanted to go in that direction anyway!
    From what I gather St Ives is looking set to being the next Atlantis with the predicted weather patterns (Storms, tsunamis etc...) So just think you could then be the boy from Atlantis and St Ives!
    Anyway enough joviality (if thatís what this all is)...Hoping now to get this thread back on topic if at all possible.

    Re: Fun With Sony _____

    These are with a900 with Contax 35-70 f3.4, in the Kosciuszko NP.

    If any kind soul comes by, can you tell me how to have my images show full size in the page, I would appreciate it. The thumbnail idea loses a lot of detail, and it forces viewers to open the thumbnail, an extra server call.

    When I add an attached file they get put in this little box you see..ta, phil

    Hi John
    Sorry I meant to get back earlier to you regarding your post.
    I think that was a great little book if I remember correctly "Tales and legends" that I read as a child (suitable for both adults and children alike...Even better than Game of Thrones IMO) when my parents used to bring me down to St Ives on holiday in the mid 60's.
    (BTW. The weather was good in those days or at least how I remember it - it was, but then I was only a kid and my memory is hazy now)

    I managed about 5 years ago to pick up a very early edition of Robert Hunt's collected stories "Popular Romances of the West of England" or also known as "The Drolls, Traditions, Superstitions of old Cornwall"...If I remember correctly a lot of the stories from "Tales and Legends" were taken from it...But BEWARE some of the other stories from the original will scare you to death ...Definitely not all the stories are suitable for children.

    Re: Fun With Sony _____

    I wondered Philip, I really would like to see your fine images on a bigger size.

    Whereever your images are located on the web. Rightclick on the image and copy url. If they are located in the Gallery of getdpi, you have to open them first to get the bigger size and then copy url.

    In reply to thread click on the image icon (mountain with sun) and paste your url in there. Make sure it does not say twice http://.

    If you want to have it in the middle, (only when you use advanced settings) select the whole url text you pasted and click on centered text icon.

    Hope this is clear. If you use flickr there is another way. Let me know and I'll explain.

    Hello Barry:
    I'll have to look into that source book. But don't worry about scary stories. Nothing is as scary as the stuff you hear about nowadays. Luckily there are still plenty of pleasant things to photograph (as this site proves) and pleasant people to talk to (in a written sort of a way).
    Best regards,
    John

    I dunno John...You might be surprised
    In that book it tells you how to conjure up the Devil as long as you can find 12 purer than white Cornish virgins to carry out the rite (They must be prepared and willing to be sacrificed)...Needless to say nobody has conjured him up yet!
    Give it a go and let me know how it works out
    Cheers Barry

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Really enjoying the A7R with Canon 17mm F4 TSE and Metabones III. I think I lucked out with a good Metabones because mine seems to be just tight enough, and to not have any asymmetry.

    T/S lenses are so much easier to focus on the A7R because you can actually see what you are doing properly through the EVF.

    Thanks! I liked one of them particularly (though at web size a lot of the reason for that isn't so evident) so I tarted it up a bit... apologies if it's overcooked but the light is so smoggy and flat here that I crave a bit of drama!

    Nikkor 50mm 1.4 LTM. A small, fast ~60 year old 50mm. Uncoupled minimum focus distance of ~45cm or ~1.5 feet, which is an added bonus. With the Voigtlander VM-E adapter, you can get even closer.

    Wide-open


    f2.8 at a little more normal distance

    Hello Tim:
    Cook to your heart's content! That's what art is all about. I was very interested to see your TSE 17 photos here. I remember you weren't happy with the TSE 24 optic. How does the 17mm stand up under analysis? I'm guessing that the corners are satisfactory? Anyway, that's a very fancy piece of metal and glass and I must say one that I've been interested in. Do you have any thoughts on the usefulness of 17mm vs 24mm with a tilt shift?
    Regards,
    John

    Hi John, and thanks!
    The lens seems to do very nicely even to the edges. I haven't yet shot it in all its possible permutations but it is certainly in a different league from any Nikon T/S lens I ever had and it also seems good out of the box in a way that none of the 24mm TSEs I tried were.

    You can usually tell a good or bad lens in just a few frames with no testing. Testing seems necessary to iron out what is wrong and see if there's a way around it, and sometimes to 'prove' that the lens s badly designed or built. But a good lens shines straight away and this one does. I have tried it with plenty of tilt and mild shift permutations and its seems fine, though I all soon enough test it to see what its limits are on the A7R.

    Frankly I thought I wanted a 24mm only because the protruding front element of the 17mm scared me. It still scares me, and it also restricts the angles relative to the sun you can shoot at because of the lack of a hood. So it is less practical. But having a really nice low distortion 17mm lens is a useful addition to the bag and the movements are going to be useful for all sorts of things.

    Sony A7R and Sony Sonnar FE 35mm f/2.8 ZA

    Different look compared to the LEICA MM and 35mm Cron. I'm glad to have both.
    B & W conversion is so easy as the file contains lots of information.
    It's very closed to the files from H4D-40 and Leica S2 without back pain.

    Tim:
    I know what you mean about the front element. I have an old Sigma 12-24 in A-mount and it's almost comical. It looks like a heat lamp bulb attached to a lens mount. But I think really wide can sometimes be a lot of fun. Just aiming that thing straight up in a forest (with a remote to allow you to get out of the picture) can sometimes produce very interesting results. Well you've given me something to think about (with respect to the 17mm TSE). Please keep us in the loop on your thoughts.

    John
