  • OK, sure, but I do admire his attitude of, “I’m going to love this lens, not matter how flawed it is objectively.” For most of us, I think photography is about trying to take the best photos we ...
  • So good, and I feel privileged that you share these with us. The first one sings to me, like organ pipes. The second drags me into the thoughts of the subject, forcing me to be present whether it ...
  • I do like the colors in this, the natural yellow and green and the imposed red, but my eye is confused by the subject, whether it is the bridge to the left or the lamp (?) to the right. Perhaps I ...
  • Astonishing, absolutely astonishing, but but to the point of seeming almost unreal. Pray, do share with us the secrets of your photograph. Is all of that fascinating red real? Regards, Alan
  • I do admire those who when presented with a scene have the imagination to envision it from a different angle, as here. And, oh, what beautiful colors, so tempting. But eating these would probably ...
  • I’ve live my entire life with a phobia of spiders (inter alia), but this is astonishingly beautiful. I can only imagine the technical skills required to create this, and then on top of those the ...
  • Absolutely beautiful, Brian. Perhaps one of your strongest photos. Regards, Alan
  • I agree. I think this is really an APC-C lens, because the edges are fine but the corners are messed up. However, the lens is secondary here; front and central is your vision. The vision to see an ...
  • Whoa! OK, I agree that a slightly less tight framing might have improved the composition, but what you have is astonishing. So many macro photos have a single point of interest, but here the ...
  • This is a scene we’ve seen before. but here it seems new because of the amazing color contrast between the bruised sky and the lush fields. Thank you. Regards, Alan
  • Replied in Benches
    These have potential, but I wonder if they wouldn’t have been stronger with more isolation of the main subject.  Or perhaps I’m misunderstanding your intent? Regards, Alan
  • These are awesome, and I am wowed. All are technically perfect, and that is a severe challenge with such a long lens. My favorites are the first and the last, for the beautiful framing of the ...
  • The first one is just superb. You have exactly the right amount of selective focus to bring out the subject. And you found the precise moment to capture the emotion of the moment. His eyes! Regards, ...
  • Google says very small amounts of WD40 to remove the Zen finish followed by alcohol to remove the WD40. Regards, Alan
  • Replied in AF
    Yes, advanced mode, which attempts to emulate a native lens. Green mode is painful on the a6000. Regards, Alan
  • Created discussion thread Crevice Swift
    I was sitting on a low wall towards the end of the day enjoying the hummingbirds in the nearby trees, when this beautiful crevice swift or lagartija espinosa de collar ( Sceloporus torquatus ) ...

  • In this I like the color echoes, between the foreground horse and the background trees, and then the striking contrast with the black and white subject. Regards, Alan
  • This is such a beautiful set, Travis. The first one has perfect composition, and I love the contrast between the colors of the landscape, the pale blue sky, and the red of the crossing barrier. The ...
