    Opinions will vary on the 35 FE lens understandably but, with apologies to the OP for a moment ...... this here photograph is worthy of a slight digression in my opinion. Damn fine job you did ...
  • Ernesto No wrong decision possible in this case, though I wonder if you could perhaps enlighten me on where in the Book of Life does it say you shouldn't be greedy especially when it comes to ...
  • I'm not sure about great advice but I can tell you that everything you read about how stellar the 55 perform is mostly true. However, the poorer sibling is the one that I shoot with more after the ...

    Right with you on the RX my friend; a rather special camera in a small package. In good light, I found it rivalled files from the Leica M9 CCD sensor, albeit a little more clinical and modern if ...
  • Josh the expensive seats image is well thought out and executed. Where you chose to focused in the last two also makes the respective images stand out for me. It is the norm to focus on the nearer ...

    You live in a beautiful part of this world my friend. I passed through Calgary on a bitterly cold Feb day enroute to Banff. Thank you for this post and your thoughts. I too just picked up the 7s ...
  • AK I love this. The 3 men grabs my attention with no distractions from the surrounds even though you have left plenty of the environment in the frame. The predominantly warm colour is also appealing. ...
  • I agree. The service at the Mayfair store is exemplary. I stopped by on the way to Heathrow right on opening time and they couldn't do more for me while the cab waited as I deliberated the purchase ...
  • If my memory serves me right the cat picture had a distracting colour on the right. Served up in monochrome, it lends a different flavor altogether. Nicely done. And Mongkut himself would have been ...
  • John If my eyes serve me right, especially with the first image, compressing most of the available data into the mid tones will yield the look I see you have presented. In my mind, the process ...
  • Brilliantly articulated.
  • I think the people that sell us stuff have done a great job convincing us that sharpness is the be all and end all. I swallowed that line hook and sinker for years but kept wondering why I ...
  • A true gentleman you are ... and a rare commodity, especially in cyberspace. Many thanks. I shall await your followup post. Again, thank you. David
  • Firstly, thank you to everyone for their input in the thread. I too am considering the Elite version to see what I can add to my LR5 workflow especially with deformation, distortion from UWA ...

    The first image is wonderfully framed and lit. Not your standard pose or posture but it worked well. The others did not resonate as much with me. Had a look through your stuff. I like your style. ...
  • These are nice enough images though I tend to agree with another poster that they lack a key element (the context) on account of your framing or cropping. A little more of the surrounding ...
  • I too thought the sharpening took something away in terms of the original magical quality I saw. Not better or worse in a sense but it changed the feel ..... pour moi! I am not a big fan personally ...
  • Clearly, the skies are the attention and given that, I would have thought a portrait orientation on the first image would serve to accentuate the point especially with a 4 to 1 sky to land ratio ...
  • +1 Especially on the aesthetics of taking the white all the way to the edge. Mehhh ..... been there done to death. I too thought trees better darker for the same reason on the second. Like your stuff.
  • It's a lovely scenic for sure but as a photograph, it is lacking a point of interest for my eyes to go to. It can be a difficult thing when using wide angle lenses for shots like these and to ...
