  • Thanks for the link to Rodney Lough Jr.'s work; it is, as you say, most impressive. It's also clear why he knows so much about how his cameras work -- he uses large format technical cameras. In ...

    Thank you, Warren!!!
  • Replied in Hey Max,
    Have a wonderful trip, full of new experiences, new friends, and new memories. And maybe a picture or two! Where exactly are you headed? I fear the Kashmir is probably still pretty dicey, ...
  • Replied in Sent my votes
    The X especially has some wonderful stuff!
  • Now I'd better quit messing around and get the house in decent shape before my wife gets back from her trip. :-D
  • Replied in BAD NEWS
    Yes, it looks like Warren has left PBase entirely. His entire site is gone, including his wonderful galleries of great photos. He is missed, and not just for his marvelous voting machine. I truly ...

    I recall a little discussion in the C238 Results thread: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/53997235
  • LOL, Andrew. Did I mention that it "Thunk"ed down from the sky? The cicada was quite dead, which made it a lovely little model -- no release form necessary! :-D

    My freeware focus-stacking software strips out the exif. Sorry about that. I've now added it under the photo. The lens is a 150mm prime (one of my favorites!).
  • Yesterday, while eating lunch, I heard a "Thunk!" on the deck outside the patio door. What I found kept me entertained for several hours ( while I should have doing house chores ;-) ), posing, ...
  • with my 3rd in the Comp. And trying to prove a point about telephotos. :-)
  • Congratulations, Brad. You are now officially a "Junior Geezer." Enjoy it while it lasts! :-D
  • Thanks for the education, man!
  • I appreciate the info, Phil. Is that the old 603II? It's not obvious to me that the newer RF 603II has a cable compatible with the E-M1, although I've seen conflicting reports about the N3 cable's ...
  • Hahahahaha, wonderful! The only time I've seen the Madrone tree was four years ago in Washington Park in Portland, Oregon. I spent nearly an hour with that fabulous bark, just drinking it in and ...
  • You really nailed these: focus, depth, color, composition ... wowza! Thanks for sharing these images. It looks like you might have used a flash. If so, I'm curious to know which one.
  • Replied in Two in the comp
    and for one of them, I finally broke out the old 7-14 SHG. I had forgotten how much fun that big heavy honker is. Thanks, Yaelle, for reminding me (even though I shot it at 14). :-)
  • need to get together and swap some war stories. I'll bet you could fill a week without repetition. :-D Seriously, Endika, I'm glad that Montse is getting up and around. Now if you can just sneak a ...
  • Replied in Shore lunch
    Fabulous work, Gary, with terrific detail at a compelling moment. ( Nice lens, too ;-) )
  • Hahahaha, very creatively done, Dharma, with an excellent result! Love the detail and unexpectedness of it.
