  • Ok I did several things.  I cropped it as 16:9.  Then lightened the dark areas a bit.  And then I noticed that the horizon was not level.  But upon making the ocean level the far shore to the left...

  • Created photos Just a quick share
    Was out yesterday for a leisure day familiarizing with a few new lenses.   This is one of those shots that is nothing to brag about but you share it just because it's complete LUCK to catch the...
  • We don't get much snow here in Hawaii so I thought I'd send some picture warmth and sunshine to the rest of you.   Was just playing around with my new lens yesterday to see what it would do at...

  • Alright, nothing fantastic here but had fun using this lens for the first time. Excuse some of the surface specs as this urchin was underwater and I had to shoot it from above the waterline.  Avoid...
  • Within the last 10 days have ordered over $6700 from B&H (not to mention smaller past purchases).   I order from B&H Online exclusively.  I've concluded the following: 1.  One of the easiest...

    My hometown is Kona.   The last shot...  ahhh the infamous Saddle Road!   They have since closed that old stretch and reopened a newly designed route that is much nicer, safer, and shortens the...
  • Does anyone have sample photos using the 400mm f/5.6L with the 2x TC III (specifically the III model)?  I's curious about the results of the combo at the 600-800 range. This combo is a only a...
  • I hope you were able to get down and into Waipio Valley versus the lookout only because once you get down into it you can get awesome shots of Hiilawe falls which surpasses Akaka Falls. There's...
  • borax wrote: Much better ! :-D Had to chuckle at this. First the Canon f:1.8 50mm lens is optically very good. Second, the f:1.4 is indeed a (not so far ?) better performer than the f:1.8...
