  • Replied in Cloud
    Hi, Lou;  I liked this one.  It made me think of your thread.  Rich M1, ZD 150mm f2, EC 20, 300mm http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • Replied in Survivors
    In the last couple of weeks a few precocious irises have bloomed, the rest are waiting.  These few seem to be more beautiful than average.  Perhaps their vitality making them bloom early also made ...
  • Replied in Spring
    When I first got The M1 I tried the teleconverter and thought it worked well, but doesn't seem to work on RAW pix.  I'll have to play with it more.  Since I use lots of flash, I have the exposure ...
  • Replied in Various, again
    I dunno, Andrew.  The M1 does tricks of its own many of them not a bit entertaining.  You might find a way around The M1 working at all.  I tried spinning the rear dial.  There was no effect.  I ...
  • Replied in Fill 'er up
    Great in B&W, Craig. I can't imagine these in color. I remember Sinclair gas stations. Their logo use a brontosaurus. Some stations even had a giant brontosaurus on the grounds. I remember driving ...
  • Replied in Spring
    I did not know about spinning the rear dial, Andrew.  I'll try that, thanks.  I'm complaining too much, I guess.  Small to medium crap (and one hum-dinger) have been coming at me for months and ...
  • Replied in Spring
    Thank you, Andrew.  I've found that with flowers the snap on diffuser plus the slide out wide panel help to reduce bright spots caused by the moist areas of the flower's skin.  Focus stacking must ...
  • A great pic, Adrian.  What a good idea to give a big city some character and a bit of whimsy.  A great pic to introduce yourself.  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • I like the first, Andrew.  I can't for the life of me figure out what it represents, but it looks nice and there is certainly lots of work in it.  The blushing rose is beautiful.  The M1 and 12-40 ...
  • Replied in Trillium
    A nice collection of flowers, WhyNot.  I often desaturate and darken backgrounds, maybe add a bit of gaussian blur if it looks natural.  If there's something awful back there, I'll paste in a ...
  • Replied in Spring
    Lots of flowers budding.  A few precocious irises out early.  A big storm will blow them down Friday.  Then, there will be more.  And so it goes.  Rich M1, ZD 50mm macro, FL 50R M1, ZD 50mm macro, ...
  • Beautiful place and great photography, Gary. Your compositions are nice to fall into, better than blood pressure pills. Just don't extend a handful of grass or you'll likely get a ten pound goose, ...
  • Really beautiful, Andrew.  I just posted a response to mapgraphs about this experience.  When a photograph finds you, and has the impact to take you out of your moment into the moment of the ...
  • Replied in Wizard of ODD
    Sometimes, it's the mood.  I like your pic, a great place for photography.  I often go out for a day, with lots of gear, and never make one pic.  Since I quit commercial photography, I have found ...
  • Replied in R.R.L.C Pt. 2
    There probably were few if any women majoring in forestry back in '73.  I've been attending since '75 and have watched the general level of consciousness elevate along with the opening of areas ...
  • Replied in This and That
    Thanks, Stew.  That was a strange black cloud, just standing in front of the rest.  Raining here now, but light.  Thursday night and Friday looks like it might be another really big one. ...
  • Replied in R.R.L.C Pt. 2
    Better her than you?  I could not agree more.  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • Replied in R.R.L.C Pt. 2
    It looks like a great way to me.  I split wood for poor folks from 2002 to 2008 as a volunteer.  Some were cold, had to get it done.  Bucking up the logs is the hardest and most dangerous part.  I ...
  • Replied in boom truck...
    That is a pretty optimistic boom truck, Stew.  Andrew is the expert on bullet holes in one's ride, and has been since Bonnie & Clyde got perforated.  My first 4x4, an original Power Wagon from the ...
  • Replied in Houses .....,
    A great set, WhyNot.  #5 is a beautiful home with porches, I love porches, they're even upstairs, that's bitchin'.  It is extravagantly beautiful with its wood and brick.  The third floor dormers ...
