Hello

The images are superb but there is one question that one has to ask right away . You do not use the native 4.3 ratio for your work ?

If si , I am curious as to why

Harold

Hi, I worked with classic format 3:2 for about 15 years. After my switch to Olympus gear I still see compositions in 3:2. I also set my camera to show just 3:2 format (even 4:3 is recorded to RAW) and the image fill whole LCD which is also in 3:2 format, no numbers and other informations on display are splitted. So, no special reason, I see the world in 3:2 or (many times) in 1:1 ๐Ÿ˜‰โœŒ

I strongly prefer the 3:2 ratio, except for maybe portrait which I almost never do. 3:2 is more dynamic. It is the one thing I miss when I moved over from APs formats but ome can easily crop as desired

lovely set. The third is over the top good!

+ All taken handheld with TC activated 500mm (EQ. 1000 mm)
+ No postprocess at all just converted from RAW to JPG by Capture One 21
+ Noise reduction "0"
+ All taken in totally cloudy environment often during the rain
+ 3 published pictures in 1200 x 1200 pixels crop in real size added
+ please don't widely share without previous notice, for your personal use only

More full res will come with my upcoming lens review as well as many examples of using this lens in field.

Yep and the above image not only shows how impressive the lens is but also demonstrates Petr's shooting skill to capture the lizard and his processing expertise.

Re: How do you get the black background in pic #3?

Hi Petr,

Big fan of your work. Wondering how do you manage to get that black background?  I've been usually able to achieve similar effect when the subject is in dark shade but under a spot of sunlight. Here it seems its evenly illuminated.

Thanks,

Jaideep

#3 is the best IMO. Looking forward to more

One of TOP 3 shots from the whole trip (from my point of view). ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ‘

It’s a fantastic shot, but my OCD tells me to level the water. Especially on a shot like this where symetry and the mirror image is the subject. Sorry, had to comment๐Ÿ˜‰

You are right, I noticed today morning bad water level. Hope this is better version... ๐Ÿ˜‰

P.

Well, thats perfection๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
