***This week with your a7x/a9x/a1, April 24th - 30th, 2021***

This weekly topic serves as a place for forum members to share recent work with our Sony Alpha full frame cameras. It's OK for a7x and a9 camera owners to dazzle us with images made with other cameras, but the idea is to allow owners with similar cameras to compare notes, chops, and sensibilities.

Using Threaded View helps to keep each person's contribution and responses linked in a tree-like structure so replies/discussions are easier to follow.

To begin:

1. Add your contribution for the week by responding to this, the first message in this topic.

2. Change the Subject of your message, then embed your image into the reply with whatever you’d like to say about it. (Embedding makes it easier to participate, easier than a link to an image located outside the forum - but links aren’t a great offense).

If you especially want C&C (criticism/critique) or technique feedback, say so. It’s assumed one does want such feedback, but direct requests may garner a more studied analysis/response. If you don't want such feedback, say so, and others will respect your wishes.

If you feel you've been ignored, select your post, reply to it with a brief note to the effect of "Can I get some feedback?". Not getting feedback on a post isn't uncommon, so don't feel offended - no one is charged to ensure all posts get attention (we're not organized enough for that). If you want particular feedback (composition, exposure choice, etc.), saying so can be helpful for the potential respondents as to what your needs may be.

It is courteous and advisable that, should you post images for feedback, you also make comment on at least one other contribution. Respectful acknowledgment of everyone is the goal, and it’s requested that all participants assume some responsibility to that end.

Sometimes people illustrate suggestions by re-editing images that you post here and reposting them in this thread. If you don't want that done, please say so. Otherwise, we'll all assume that's OK with you. Of course, it is never OK for anyone to take your images, edited or not, and repost them elsewhere.

A7C w/Sony 90mm f/2.8 G macro, Wildflowers
8

Such a nice day 😊 I had to go out for a walk in the woods to see how the wildflowers are doing (mother nature at work). I got some fun photos of Hepatica, Trillium and Trout Lily. The Trillium are still a week or so from being plentiful (lots of small buds). I love the natural beauty and bright colors.

All images shot handheld with A7C w/90mm f/2.8 G macro.

Early Spring
4

Over the last 10 days, I've spent more of my time on a Spring video project at one of our local Nature Preserves than on capturing stills. But I did stop from time to time between takes for some early Spring images. Here are a few:

There's plenty of melting snow feeding the Vernal Pools where frog and salamander eggs currently abound.

Yellow Trout Lilies, Erythronium americanum, were a welcome sight up top as I climbed out from a gorge and one of the waterfalls.

Meet Petunia, an Eastern Box Turtle, who was not faring very well this passed Winter. She is now looking much healthier and stronger with plenty of care at the Nature Center.

Thanks for looking.

Roger,

The one on top reminds me so much of a similar (smartphone) image I took of my own daughter last evening, pursed lips and all. Your memories are building nicely. But the second image shows hints of your little lady becoming a real pro at this "model" thing. Wonderful "team" effort.Β

Re: Momma and baby Egret

Great shot!

How did you manage to get a shot at eye level though? Egrets tend to build their nests high in the trees.

Jake, thanks for comment.

Yes, the Sony 90mm G macro is a wonderful lens and I should use it more.  It also serves as a great portrait lens.

Beautiful!

You chose attractive angles to pose the flowers.

Where are you located that you are close to woods and wildflowers? I haven't gotten out to woods this year, and have photographed mostly from my garden.

Re: Early Spring

These lilies are so elegant looking! Aren't nature centers wonderful! I'm hoping to go to a local botanical garden soon.
