crop from very distant shot, handheld, evening, I just liked the clouds, backlit trees, ..

On way out of town, I saw a pair of egrets, also big crops from afar

Whatever the camera was left in last, that's what I used, as I was going around the car they moved further back, then a boring staring match, then they laughed at me and flew away. Donna got a nearer shot out the window of the car with her cell phone before they moved back.

thanks,

I missed some nice red by 8 seconds while looking for a place to pull over, this became more linear without the red. Disappointed until I saw it on big monitor. The trees are about 1/2 mile away I guess, the original was nearly twice as wide.

I know you like shadows but BORING SHOTS IMHO

Re: and a bench

'BORING' ALL CAPS is a bit harsh Bill.

The crop is a winner in my book,

shadows were a draw, but mother natures textures were my intent. I was trying various SDOF using the other end of the bench as the focus point, luckily this one had enough detail at this end

daffodils

Normally I ignore daffodils, but, they seem to be best at taking the late punch of a few consecutive nights of 25 F, so when returning to NJ, that's about it in Shakespeare's Garden

Cropped, no PP, ev as camera was able at f2.

super bright, I need an ND filter.

Spun the ev to -2.3 (thought I went all the way to -3). Still need an ND filter. They would be better with some level changes, just showing what camera did

messing with manual focus and f2. too bright behind me to see peaking in evf well

Re: RX1r, Serengeti in Massachussets

glad you like it.

I can see my first FF is going to let me learn new things, probably my widest shot with some detail ever posted, and this is a crop from nearly double that width. Just ordered a travel tripod, cannot wait to get it.

Interior Designer close up detail boy doing Landscapes??

Re: RX1r, Serengeti in Massachussets

wish my knees let me get a bit lower for this backlit one, it looked like a separate set of petals in the bright evf

maybe black & white would work better.

Re: and a bench

Truth is wonderful, always desired, I was only having fun with you, it was the  all caps BORING I was joking about.

Re: RX1r, Serengeti in Massachussets

tried the bench crop bw, no go, as Bill says, BORING

tried this one bw,

then, I changed the color temp which separated the birds from background a bit better than orig

others bw

for roadside grabs, these and the sunset, I'm happy,

in all the years we have been up there, the two egrets have never been together for a photo of any kind. If I had my Oly zoom, things would have been different.

They left, otherwise, this would have been a good chance to try/see RX1r CIZ 70mm.
