  • Replied in Neil
    Thank you, Neil. The image I posted is part of my personal collection of historical photographs of China, it was taken in the fall of 1937 by a member of the USMC on the outskirts of Beijing. I ...
  • Replied in Kostas
    Thank you, I certainly will have quite a few to post once things get sorted. I attended a fashion show here in Beijing yesterday, with some very interesting folk out and about. Remember, you're the ...
  • Replied in Dear Thomas,
    Dear Choi, No, I have not forgotten. There's a whole to-do and to-see-and-photograph list ready to be deployed the moment you both set foot on these shores 😊 Thanks for the images bow, they are a ...
  • Hey Louis, Choi and P are seasoned travelers, I always enjoy our daytrips together when I'm in Hong Kong. Just very difficult to keep track of them, they might be in Sansibar today and hiking in ...
  • Created discussions Heading over to Beijing today
    Following in this chap's footsteps, for a month or so. Stay civil. Aloha. Thomas
  • Some genuine Fuji colors in this one, Paul (I think...). I like the simplicity of the image, nothing animated, nothing in motion, but ready to be inhabited. Thomas
  • "Once one has grasped the finitude of one's existence, it snatches one back from the endless multiplicity of possibilities which offer themselves as closest to one—those of comfortableness, ...
  • He looks impish and full of mischief, Rodrigue. I would buy his roses, but not his car :-) Thomas (Very nice capture, with a CAPITAL moustache!)
  • Thank you. Somehow, that's what I expect (somewhere in the minus range). I'll run tests tmrw so that the lens is dialed in properly before getting on the plane.
  • Valid question. I am a fast prime shooter on my Leica M9, so the habit carries over I guess. The reviews were very positive about this particular lens, so I decided to check it out while en route. ...
  • Thanks for sharing your experience. It's a couple hundred bucks for 5 weeks, not a big deal, I might buy one after I come back. No micro adjustment is good news, but I'll check it out anyway, each ...
  • Hi guys, Old-school A900 user here, I am renting the 35 Sigma for a month-long trip to China, does anyone here have suggestions or tips to share about the use and usability of this lens on a FF ...
  • Before the war, many European doctors would send patients with respiratory ailments to Lebanon. It was considered a safe and healthy country, and the famous cedars would add a soothing element to ...
  • Replied in Joe
    Thank you, Joe. This one was part of a whole series, I tracked the sun for quite a while, until it finally disappeared. I also used a big rig FF dSLR, but haven't gotten around to work on these ...
  • Replied in Paul
    Thanks much, Paul. What you correctly observe was indeed my intention: the foreground was  desaturated and amplified - highlighted - by two thirds of a stop. Further lifting of shadows and ...
  • Replied in Richard
    Dear Richard, Come over and I show you. Great crab & oyster shacks just down the coast nearby, plus a strange almost original Russian fortress (that should give you enough geographic clues and ...
  • Florida? The San Diego Zoo? :-) Very nice, dear Choi, colorful wildlife before a very dramatic background, well seen. Thomas
  • Replied in John
    Thanks, John, it's some sort of performing arts troupe on stilts. They were waiting for the audience to settle down before they began their act. Thomas
