Re: The fog rolls in

Where were your pics taken? Central FL gets almost no fog?

I took an excursion to Palm Harbor (Central West Coast). Fog is rare here. Partially explaining my lack of experience in capturing it.

I'd happily trade it for your picturesque snow.

Be careful what you wish for...it affects me too.

You're right, of course! Which would you prefer?

Those are very inspiring. I'm going to have to start taking a more serious look at ordinary objects.

Thanks Florida. That was the theme. I wouldn't normally bother with the inside of my washing machine

Re: New Lens 75-300mm

Wormsmeat wrote:

Interesting shots. I think I prefer the mystery of the 2nd. It's a lens I wouldn't mind having in my armoury.

Thank you. The lens is a bit tricky to use at 300mm I have to brace it against something when its zoomed out to 300mm because I only have 2 axis stabilization in my E-PM2. I seems to have a little less contrast than my other Olympus lenses but its much much better than the old Vivitar 75-205mm lens I was using. I hoping to get some shots of birds if they ever decide to make an appearance this year. LOL I have the lens but no subjects..

Re: Spooky Carousel in Rome

Spooky indeed!

All that comes to mind (besides "eerie") is "Well seen, well exposed, well done!"   Quite captivating.

The Cloisters
1

Geez, you gals and guys are really flexing those eyes and index fingers.  My commendations to all You People!  

Had the time today, not sure what to do with it.   Took a drive, intending to find a place to park and walk about in northern Manhattan, trying to find some new neighborhoods for fodder.   Ended up with a last moment's turn-off into the Cloisters.   I don't get there much, but I recall and found these again to be the favorite two corners of the site.

An interesting finding, for me anyway, about the last one.   With the original exposure/perspective below, in correcting for the verticals  top arch was cropped completely across the top.  Unfortunate, but I figured ht's the best I could expect.   I've never touched the Aspect slider before, just as a lark to put a little crop on the sides I thought to stretch it wider.   That allowed the rim of the arch to be pulled down and revealed as is shown above.  Cool.   I think it makes all the difference, and more so it doesn't look odd for doing so.   Or does it, for you?

I don't say this much, but it's implied for any showing that any critical observations are always invited.

The arch at the top looks great. I took a look and found the aspect slider in Lightroom. I will be trying that in the future because I've run into similar problems with things getting cropped when aligning. Now I have something else to try.

I don't know what it actually looks like but to me the column on the right, closest to the camera, isn't quite straight up and down, making the opening down near the stairs appear to be slightly wider than the opening up near the crucifix. That may just be because of the angle you are shooting from but I wanted to mention that I noticed it.

The first is great - I like the distant lights. Did you catch one where the figure is a little closer? And though bird shorts aren't my thing, the reflections in #6 elevate it.

Hi all,

Many thanks to Yaelle, Florida, and Wormsmeat for your comments.

To answer W, I have included another photo where the person is closer (see below), as you suggest. Maybe it should have waited until the person was lined up with the highlight in the water. Anyway, that's what I've got.

To answer Florida, I am not really into removing objects from my photos -- I should probably learn how to do that, but so far I have just accepted that some things in a picture may not be perfect and it's OK with me. (Life is easier that way.) However, I do agree with your comment about cropping the pelican picture. Thanks for pointing that out!

All the best,

Jeff

This picture is better if you expand it.

Re: Spooky Carousel in Rome

Thanks a lot, Bob. Big fan of your photography, even if it provokes near terminal nostalgia. I'm a New Yorker being held prisoner by wife, children, and good wine in Rome.
