Pete and I have enjoyed using Sigma/Foveon cameras from the SD9 on and hope to continue doing so.

  • Replied in Good idea Zone8
    Thanks Brian. We like your idea of posting a sample full size image in scholarly and posting the rest of them as a smaler size. It serves both needs nicely. Thanks! Pete and
  • For a number of reasons we continue to use Phase as the site where we post my picture. We are beginning to find the cost prohibitive, and we may move to another site, probably flickr. I would like ...
  • Great quality image Laurence. And there is something captivating about the contrast of the splashes of color against the stark, bare, trees. The death of Fall well captured. Pete and Nancy
  • Replied in Fall Colors
    Glad you  enjoy the colors. I taught in San Bernardino CA for a few years in the 1970s and remember how much Nancy and I both missed the Fall Colors (we both grew up here in the Northeast in NYS). ...
  • Hi Laurence, I like your "high" shots. The change of perspective provides all sorts of creative possibilities. It is a dramatic extension of what I used to call "shoe zoom." I forget what camera ...
  • Nancy and I were finally able to chase some fall colors out at Lake Scranton using the 24-105mm Zoom on the SD1M. Here are two of them. I also include a recent shot I got of the Marywood Gate ...
  • Wonderful captures of a delightful child. You two should be very proud. You both creative great pictures. Now together you have created the greatest creation human beings can produce. A child. ...
  • Laurence, Thank you for your very useful and wise early observations. It is quite clear that it is easy to jump to conclusions long before we have enough experience with this camera to find out ...
  • When you have a combination of striking subject matter and a truly skilled photographer using excellent equipment, the result it truly impressive. Thanks for sharing these with us Halldor. Pete and ...
  • Replied in D Cox
    IR and UV might give interesting effects for some of Nancy's flower pictures. I do not know if we want the cost of the filters right now. I think I remember there was a software way of "faking" ...
  • Nice image. Again we are hearing suggestions that the Quattro, just like every other advance Sigma/Foveon introduces, has lost the "special look" that attracted many of us to the Foveon sensor in ...
  • Here is another cloudy day new Flower shot we processed and put up. Hope you enjoy it. Daylily "Clothed in Glory" on a cloudy day. http://www.pbase.com/pspader/image/156858885 Pete and Nancy
  • Yes, it is a little hidden among the near rocks, but fairly easy to pick out given how sharp the picture is. The lens looks quite good with this shot. How do you like it overall? Pete and Nancy
  • Nice catch Rick. In this country, at least, the gecko would be hiding from people trying to buy insurance from him! Pete
  • The soft light of a cloudy day allows you to capture subtle details and colors that the bright light of sunlight blows out. Here are three flowers that Nancy captured yesterday in such light using ...
  • Hi Keith, Thanks. Yes, that one shows the special quality of Foveon images that attracted many of us from the time of the SD9 has not been lost with these newer cameras. Some of the flowers were ...
  • When you are setting white balance you are trying to capture the temperature and perhaps otherqualities of the light illuminating your subject. The most accurate way of doing this is to use ...
