  • Dave......that is a "crisp", well exposed & processed shot. Looking at the image at 100% the fine detail at the top of the flowers is impressive. The EXIF shows @ 70mm. What lens did you use? thank ...
  • fwiw..... Canon 24mm TS-E II vs Sigma 24mm 1.4 Art
  • Gave it go........enjoy the new "10", still a very capable camera. Mike
  • Nice "test photos". the detail in the locomotive is classic foveon, and the fortunate lighting, along with a nice composition, of the 4th image is very nice. ...............and a huge  thanks for ...
  • Larry.........likin' the colors, but the detail at 100% is "less than optimal". The sharpening is a little (maybe a lot) over the top. Have a closer look/see at your original & I think/hope you'll ...
  • The first one, taken earlier this winter, shows the local harbor starting to freeze over, with day time high temps in the single digits (F). 2nd one is just kind of a "show & tell"........ haven't ...
  • Very Nice...... "f8 & be there" , as the saying goes. Mike
  • Nice to know the lens has some legs (longevity),  I'm hoping to keep it for a while.  Funny you should mention the 1.4 TC use.  The last time I used it before it messed up was with a 3rd Party 1.4 ...
  • Not sure why, but 2 days ago it was working fine, and now it wants to hunt back & forth rapidly "around" the locked in focus point. Eventually it might settle down & lock focus, but it can go on ...
  • I've been following this thread with interest.  Thought this link for where to by might be of help. http://www.dell.com/us/p/xps-13-9343-laptop/pd?ST=dell%20xps%2013&dgc=ST&cid=79646&lid=2024370&ac ...
  • Haven't been paying a whole lot of attention to the quattro details/"maturing process", but looked at a couple of the images that have been linked here. The leaf detail in particular in this image ...
  • agreed. Whether in high contrast studio situations or in open sunlight, current systems do need some work. The lack of tonal gradation and crushed shadows/blown harsh highlight clipping makes it a ...

    Laurence...that is hopeful news. I was going to say "wunderbar", but perhaps it should be "wunderbar", with a caveat, stopped down to f22........a little diffraction in "the image". :-) Wishing you ...
  • hmmmm........that sounds a little "counter intuitive" to me, but if it gets you where you want to go? I guess maybe the highlights are a little hot. bon chance, Mike
  • there are "several"  here who know the ins & outs of SPP fairly well.  If you could link to the raw files & ask them to share their SPP settings as a starting point, that might get you on your way. ...
  • a very soft...........wow. Canon has certainly raised the bar. One interesting thing I did notice was the distortion at 16mm on the 11-24 seems quite a but less than on the canon 16-35 f4 at 16mm. ...
  • Similar to the one on the original 5D, based on my experience. fwiw, the resolution of the existing 5DIII is fine for me. Canon needs to find out how to improve the DR (shadow noise) and highlight ...
  • .......enjoyed reading the interview. His candidness, tenacity, vision and passion will more than likely guarantee the company's success, along with the continuing effort to build, in my opinion, ...
  • Replied in Hans........
    Hans.....I didn't get a chance to look at your tutorial & it seems like the link has expired/been removed. could you post it again, I'll be watching the posts.........Very Nice portfolio. tak, Mike
