[Many Picts] A-900 Visits the Southwest

I recently came back from a trip to the Southwest. I was unbelievably impressed with the Sony system. Here are a few shots with the Sony A-900 and the following lenses: Zeiss 24-70 f/2.8, Zeiss 16-35 f/2.8, and Sony 70-400 f/4-5.6 G SSM. I hope you enjoy these images 1/10 as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Shoot in RAW because memory is cheap, but memories are priceless.

Re: [Many Picts] A-900 Visits the Southwest

an excellent set.

  1. 1 & 2 are nicely handled giving a real feel of the area. #3 & 4 are like shots from mars...like them both alot! and the light beam in #6 makes the shot.........I could go on and on about each shot, but the 900 served you very well here - thanks for posting shots of a beautuful region I'm unlikely to visit but now feel I have!

Dear Mahesch,

I draw my hat. May I kindly suggest you post this same set under "Samples and Galleries"? An advert for your excellent choices of location and time (if there was a guide, what kind one? A book or a person?) - and also the A900 and lenses you brought to these awesome sites in awesome lights!

First-rate work

What a trip! You came back with some superb images. The first two, especially, take my breath away. Sure, you had the advantage of a top-end camera and stellar glass. But the artistic vision and execution are all yours. Congrats!

Superb set all the way!

Comp, light, colors etc are all simply great!

Brings back some fine memories.....

Was that Antelope Canyon or another slot canyon?

This is artbook work!
Light, Composition - everything perfect.
What do you do for living.

Was at the locations some times as well (horseshoe bend, moab area etc...)
But your images not just show the beauty but also the spirit of this area!!!

Thanks for sharing!

Wow, many of those truly are stunning. I especially enjoyed the first two or three images, as well as antelope canyon with the beam of light.

My only minor critique would be that I would love to see a bit more contrast in the B&W image.

Thanks for posting these!

Just curious:

I noticed you posted three of those also on the Olympus forum, stating they were shot with an Olympus E-620. Neither of the posts show EXIF. What's up?

One of ...

the best landscape sets I've ever seen. You really know how to handle the A-900. There are so many wonderful shots, it's hard to pick a favorite.

Nice shootin!

Great images of some of my favorite locations. You had beautiful composition and nice light. Monument Valley and Hunt's Mesa is always a special place to go. Thanks for sharing.
