  • If I were Sigma, I would have skipped the 28 mm focal length in favor of a 35mm equivalent, which would be the so called "normal" lens.  Then I would skip the 45 equivalent (I dislike 45-50mm ...
  • Nice photo !  I also shoot with a DP3 Merrill.  It's a great camera.  For macro work though I miss being able to "smooth" the background as much as I was able to do with 35 mm and a ...
  • Replied in Tiger
    You are brave.  If I saw a shark like that I would be out of the water in an instant.  I remember when the movie "Jaws" first came out I was on vacation in Florida and I told my wife - oh, the ...
  • Rocky Mountain National Park Views from  high peaks in Rocky Mountain National Park, Co.  Taken handheld with DP3 Merrill
  • Yes, larger aperture decreases depth of field.  Very important because sometimes you want that effect.
  • Replied in field
    I really like that photo.  I've always been attracted to foggy and moody landscape shots like that. They seem soft and mysterious.  The emotional impact can be strong.
  • Very nice !  Such an amazingly sharp lens and sensor.  I shoot with a DP3 Merrill also and when doing hand held close up work it's sometimes hard to get enough depth of field, as you alluded to. Th ...
  • There was a slight drizzle - enough to make me uncomfortable and gear getting wet
  • Nice Shot !  It looks like you used a graduated neutral density filter and didn't pull it down far enough to take down the exposure of the lower part of the sky.  Was that intentional ?
  • That's funny; you read a bit more into it than I did !  But yeah, the neck angle makes the neck look large and the shoulder is too overpowering.  The imbalance of body parts caused it to lose the ...
  • If you are convinced, then show me ?  The photo is over 10 years old.  I don't recall ever posting that photo.
  • Thanks for taking the time to write a response.  I'm not really upset about it but I wanted to explore the subject a bit with people who were knowledgeable, who might give some practical advice, ...
  • It was never posted on the internet by me because I never had a digital file of it.  I was only able to post it now because I took a photo of the print on my wall with my DP3 Merrill.  You must be ...

  • Thanks for pointing this out.  I've never seen that before - the lines going across the picture are subtle enough that they don't interfere with viewing them. People who do notice probably think ...
  • Nice photos!  I love trails or paths for some reason, I think because, in my mind, there is always the mystery of what's around the next bend. The detail you get from the DP3 Merrill is amazing !
  • Same here Foggy.  I always used a tripod and slow slide film also.  And my equipment was heavy !  I used medium format because I wasn't thrilled with the quality of 35 mm film for landscape work ...
  • Thanks Foggy.  I'm having fun with this camera.  Now all I need is a wide angle one !  Then I will have to convince Sigma to make one with a 200 mm lens attached, lol
  • Here are some photos of flowers I took at the local park yesterday with DP3 Merrill.  I'm still getting used to this camera but already have great appreciation for it's ability. I did however get ...
  • Wow, I really like your images !  You have style.  Beautiful !
