***This week with your a7x/a9x/a1, Oct 2nd - 8th, 2021***
2

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.

Love the lighting and subtle makeup.  You promised us “snaps”?  Would be good to see the others.

Lighthouse frustration
7

There is a particular shot I’ve been trying to get of a local lighthouse with low sun shining from the left and the tide just washing over the breakwater.  Needs enough cloud to be interesting but not cover the sun.

Missed my window earlier in the week due to rain.  Missed the one before due to sheeting on the deck.  Went tonight to check the timing, 20 mins too late on the sun and 40 mins too early on the tide.  Still the cloudscape was good.

The two lovers were exactly where I planned to put the tripod.

A7C w/28-60mm End Of Sommer Flower and Our Dog

Went out for a walk and got a shot of our end of summer flower and my fun dog. I love using the simple light weight combo of A7C w/28-60mm.

Very nice, Roger. So, is your daughter working for scale or is she as good a negotiator as she is a model?

I desaturated all but the leg (and eye) colour - liked the effect

Isn't it wonderful that even when you don't get what you were after, you still come home with a very nice capture. The two lovers even provide a scale that greatly add to its interest. Nice.

10mm UWA Landscapes
11

After going out last week to capture cloud formations over my "neighborhood" and then only getting wet, this week I had a bit more luck. The rectilinear Rokinon SP 10mm f/3.5 UWA lens was on my A7R IV as I hit the Appalachian Trail. Both images are full frame with no cropping (downsized of course) and post processing are my own Autumn Landscape scripts.

My "neighborhood" from the Appalachian Trail in the early days of Autumn. The 10mm lens captures Connecticut at the left middle edge, New York in the middle, and New Jersey just touches the edge of the frame at the middle right.

A 10mm view of the Summit of Bear Mountain overlooking Harriman State Park to the West.

Thanks for looking. Comments are welcome.

A beautiful bird and a nice capture of the reflections.
