  • Replied in Toward Spring
    Springward? Equinox is six weeks away.
  • So, you look at the results of what it can do?
  • Memory. Every lens has a signature character. If I can't remember which lens I used it's because I used too many lenses - usually to no good purpose. And if I can't remember which, then some of the ...
  • A nice composition, sharp in the center, nice contrast and any edge softness present isn’t an issue. My inclination is for the uncropped version. I like the dynamics of the cloud line with the ...
  • Would retro faux brassing help on the rolled edges? A rewind knob? Hope history doesn't repeat with the e-pl6 trajectory. And, whatever happened to the special Titanium OM-D E-M5 II?

  • Replied in Afternoon walk
    Yes, the Sony is a bit closer in this case but on the cold side (probably in part due to the lens). Contrast was nudged a bit on the E-1 driving the tone even warmer. What looks good one moment ...
  • Replied in Afternoon walk
    The alternative title probably would be something like "Blizzard? What Blizzard?" Amazing what 50 miles north or south makes. 53F + sunshine, and everyone out for a walk on the trails  = mud. More ...
  • Replied in An Anniversary
    Tree hasn't grown but it looks like the rock pile is missing a few. Lovely contrast in color. I wonder what a series like this in B&W would look like.
  • Replied in Adapting
    Conversations. a7ii & Voigtländer 35mm f/1.7 Ultron (LTM), Hexanon 85mm f/1.8. Olympus E-30 & Tamron Adapt-A-Matic, 300mm f/5.6 (m42 mount).
  • A Konica Hexanon 40mm f/1.8. Probably set at f/5.6 or f/8 for this. A popular "fast pancake" focal length with some manufacturers, usually 40 or 45mm.  Contax, Minolta and Voigtlander have well ...
  • Replied in Waterfront
    Being a spendthrift liberal old Connecticut Yankee, the decision only took a quick year and a half. I’m still not sure about it so I’m going to hold off buying a spare battery. This started out ...
  • Replied in Waterfront
    It’s the lens. Strictly the lens. A $47 lens at that. Used. : - ) They thought they drove the Devil out back in 1645, but he bought a pew in the Meeting House and became a Deacon. Owned an Island ...
  • Replied in Waterfront
    Not much after effect to see probably, it’s a tidal river (or bay depending on the viewpoint) so the salt air keeps things in check I guess. This is the winter port for Montreal, the rail head, so ...
  • Replied in Waterfront
    Looks like New London got 5”. That dropped to 2”-4” inland here in the hills. Port Jefferson on the Sound got 22”. Nor'easters are fickle.
  • It sounds like Newark Airport got 28", and then there is the drifting. Hopefully the power stayed on.
  • Replied in Atacama desert
    Signs of life? The amount of rain must be measured in decades. The track and muted colors in this are very appealing.
  • Replied in Undevelopment
    Anywhere it is. The only thing missing is a Dollar Store. That would add three cars to the lot. Like the arrows ; - )
  • Warm and beaming is good. Green is good too. Nice set.
  • Replied in Waterfront
    Working with the water theme this week : - ) Recent excursion. Before the weather arrived. Still working on the sea legs with the gear.
