  • Practice panning on tighter shots. This will let you add a sense of motion as whatever is in the background blurs but you can still freeze the subject, mostly as your subject can still be a bit ...
  • Commented on AF Micro Nikkor 60mm in the Prime Lens Challenge challenge

    I really liked this shot. That had to be harder than many realize. The exposure and DOF were great...very difficult shot to setup.

  • hehehehe....it's painful isn't it?  ;)  I have my LBA plus am really in need of a new PC.  It just can't all be done at once anymore, I miss the old days when I could do just that at anytime the ...

    I was typing exactly this reply...that the shots needed either less, or better, more bokeh. Sigh, fine, take away my fun...hahahaha....glad to read ya since it's been a while for you around here. ...
  • First both are outstanding when used properly within their limits, just like any gear. (1) But you shot JPG which for comparing cameras is pointless, IMO anyway. Using JPG's pretty much just compares ...
  • We can learn more if you share the articles...it's allowed.  :)
  • I am truly loving the leetle beastie.  When I can't use the 8-16 I have not a single qualm about switching to the smc15Ltd (note I returned/exchanged the hd15Ltd for the smc15Ltd because of the ...
  • hehehehe...actually since exchanging the HD 15ltd for the SMC 15ltd I've granted it Amigo's status joining the smc35Ltd as the 5th Amigo.  ;) Seriously though I had not read anything about any of ...
  • obviously due to a lack of pixie dust unlike that used that used in the 43ltd...and smc 15ltd   :p
  • If you got the whole CC Suite or the LR/PS CC bundle I'd give LR's tools a try.  I honestly do most of my processing in LR with some help with a few things using Nik's suite of tools.  I run to PS ...
  • Most excellent news!!  congrats!
  • Thank you, I'm happy you found something interesting in the shot and processing as well...Dean can tell ya my flower shots end up with some off the wall PP most days.  What the heck, it's supposed ...

    Very nice job....they prove that travel photos can and should be good photos.  You've got some real winners in there.  Thanks for sharing a place I will not have time to visit before I croak, it ...
  • I really, really like all three but the second & third are special.  I particuarly like the second.  For me it's dead on perfect. Kudos on that keen eye and PP...thanks for posting them!
  • It's deader around here lately than my mother in her jar, but here is a shot I took of a some flowers that were quite sad really, they had dead spots around the bundle and just gave a nice moody ...
  • Hi Daryl, I appreciate the encouragement a lot. I like my photos, sometimes. Thing is I see all the flaws and know I miss some which others can see so I never think others will like them. Yet I go ...
  • One thing I see people tend to do then call the 150-500 a "bad" lens is they try and crop waaaay too deeply.  I was one of those folks then when I learned you really need to practice the "fill the ...
  • thanks for that...it's about the fun.  I'm happy with the result everyone has a preference so I don't feel disappointed or whatever, would have been fun for a Pentax 1st though!  :)

  • Commented on Alone in the Prime Lens Challenge challenge

    I picked this as my favorite of the challenge and ironically enough the shot you tied with was next in line but both got 5's from me though for different reasons.

    Anyway, love the mood of this...
