over the winter (here in Chicago) i've been looking at a thread on FredMiranda's alt gear forum that is up to nearly 200 pages of A7(r) photos - no pixel peeping, just great photos posted. it's been great therapy.

do you remember the link? I'm interested.

i've written to a few of the photogs and inquired about post-processing / technique, etc

the common refrain in their replies was 'they look for great light'

Which is a very good tip indeed

my suggestion is wait for the great light

well, as frustrating as it sounds, I did find the perfect light few weeks ago. I did even find the perfect subject and the perfect framing. It could have been my best shot in a long time.

Pity I was on the highway driving at 180km/h and I had no chance to either stop or go back before the magic moment was gone. I did take a picture in my head though. It's awesome. I only wish I could post it on flickr..
