C&C please: California Coast & Yosemite with manual glass, NEX-5

Hello fellow E-mount fans,

Hope it's ok posting this here... I'm getting to know some of the frequent contributors, so it feels more comfortable than the big image-specific forums.

I've put a handful of my favorite shots up on Flickr (landscape, people & macros) and I'm hoping a few of you might take a breather from "gear chat" (also my primary activity in here) to offer some feedback on / critiques of my work. I really want to improve: I'm pretty thick-skinned, and know that learning photography is a life-long endeavor... so please don't hold back -- the more specific, the better!

I hope more of you will venture into the amazing world of manual glass: for landscapes in particular I find manual lenses *way* easier to use auto lenses... and have been happy with the results using my aging NEX-5. My manual collection is mostly Minolta MD, plus a couple of Konica Hexanon lenses. I've tagged most of the manual shots in my photostream with the lenses used and my best recollection of the apertures used.

Thank you!


A sample:

"Autumn Calm" -- Yosemite Valley, November 2013. Minolta MD 24/2.8, Cokin Grad ND.
