  • Replied in Me so hungry!
    Very large post but full of nice things. Nice one Robert! All that great looking food makes me sad that I have already eaten this evening :-) Mark_A A thread for Sunrise & Sunset pictures! http://w ...
  • They look like stuck pixels to me, could be failed pixels on your chip. But you say you do or do not get them with normal photos? If they are stuck pixels they would show up in all photos. I would ...
  • I would say that they are both reasonable given it appears they were taking in direct sunlight which has caused some bleaching where they can't copy with the high dynamic range. They are different ...
  • Aha. I had of course heard of his name before but hadn't seen any of his work. Mark_A A thread for Sunrise & Sunset pictures! http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/57201471
  • I love sunsets but am want to not stick around long enough for them to appear. The last time I wanted to watch a sunset and was in a decent enough position to do it, the sky was overcast and it ...
  • Sad to say that I don't get the fall colours of for example New England where I am, which I envy. But it is that time of year certainly to look out for the change. Mark_A A thread for Sunrise & ...
  • Your lens seems to work ok. I like the backdrop also. The boat bothers me though, why is it putting up so much spray, I assume it is going quickly but still it must be producing an enormous selfish ...
  • Hi Macro guy, I looked at this a couple of times but as I don't know Stieglitz's work I didn't comment, but despite that it is a nice cityscape. Mark_A A thread for Sunrise & Sunset pictures! http: ...
  • Nice video, I enjoyed it. Good soundtrack also. Mark_A A thread for Sunrise & Sunset pictures! http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/57201471
  • Replied in Monkeys
    Hi Alex, nice pics and great demonstration of high ISO performance, are they monkeys or lemurs? Mark_A A thread for Sunrise & Sunset pictures! http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/57201471
  • Very nice, splashes of vibrant colour. Mark_A A thread for Sunrise & Sunset pictures! http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/57201471
  • I have a tripod and a monopod. I now rarely use them. I was talking to someone this week who swears by lowest possible ISO and a tripod for every shot. Me I up my shutter speed and shoot handheld. ...
  • Honestly, there are so many 85mm lenses to choose between, even Nikon has so many itself. Me I bought a used Nikon 85mm f1.8D some years ago and am happy with that. Mark_A A thread for Sunrise & ...
  • It is a nice piece of machinery, 7 cylinders, I assume it is quite noisy when the engines are running. Mark_A A thread for Sunrise & Sunset pictures! http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/57201471
  • Hi Robert, I have heard that lens discussed, but I have a Nikon 85mm f1.8D which I bought used at quite a good price. Not sure I could focus a manual what with also wearing glasses and the like .. ...

    What is the DL series? Mark_A A thread for Sunrise & Sunset pictures! http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/57201471
  • Replied in Baseball game
    Aha, yes my S2 has a pretty slow burst rate also. Have you seen the new Olympus dslr? it can do 18 - 60 fps raws, it seems a pretty awesome bit of kit. Mark_A A thread for Sunrise & Sunset pictures! ...
  • Replied in Baseball game
    Hi Alex, Great timing on the first image, did you get it like that in a single shot or did you fire a burst? Mark_A A thread for Sunrise & Sunset pictures! http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/57201471
  • Replied in Sol
    Hi Vidau, Very vibrant and colourful. A beer best served with a slice of lemon in the neck of the bottle - Sol :-) Mark_A A thread for Sunrise & Sunset pictures! http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post ...
  • Nice pictures, you managed to get nice clean back and foregrounds which I sometimes struggle with in a zoo. The first pic is my favourite. It shows so well the size difference and I love the colour ...
