  • I wow, I need to get out more often, as I am drawing a blank for most of these spots 😀 But, I think #4 was taken on Kauai, looking over the Napali coast? Is #10 in the Castro neighborhood?
  • Replied in Mega Mustard
    During the winter months when grapevines are dormant, most vineyards grow “cover crops” in between the rows of grapevines, and mustard is one the most prominent (and striking). From what I’ve read ...

  • Hopefully this example is worth a thousand words.... Shot with a Canon G9X II, converted the raw file to B&W in LRC with the “B&W Punch” preset, then finished with SilverEfex. Converted to B&W in ...
  • I don’t have a Leica M, I’m just an amateur who does a little bit of B&W and I use LRC, but I believe what I’m about to describe would apply to ACR as well. In short I do most of the heavy lifting ...
  • Thanks for the comments Bob, mandodon and JC35. I agree the green rainy months (not sure it passes for most folks definition of “winter”) are some of the most photogenic around here. We haven’t ...
  • Replied in Road Photography
    These photos were taken from the passenger seat while driving in and around the Napa Valley (apologies to those who were expecting close up photos of asphalt ;-) ) Typical winter vineyard scenery: ...
  • Very nice set that I think shows the versatility of the 18-135mm — including some lovely close-ups. Are the plants from the Botanical Garden in GGP?
  • Apologies for the abrupt transition from the wonderful winter scenes shown in the thread, but here are some shots from a hike taken last September around the Cap d’Antibes on the French Riviera. ...
  • I don’t know about other monitors, but, if you are going to use an Apple Studio monitor, then as I understand your requirements, it is likely you do not need a hub or a dock to achieve what you ...
  • Replied in SF Walkabout
    Even after living there for 30 years I still enjoy exploring SF on foot. Thanks for the insight regarding the color of the container ship — I’d briefly wondered if there was a connection to the ...
  • Replied in SF Walkabout
    From a November visit to San Francisco. All taken with my X-E3 with Fuji 15-45mm lens, and processed from RAW files in LRC. Sunset shot from our hotel in Japantown The next day we walked from the ...
  • Thank you Morris, I got lucky that day. The balloon companies use a few different spots as landing zones, dependent upon the weather and wind patterns, and I happened to guess the correct spot. ...
  • Replied in Hot Air Balloons
    Taken back in November at Alston Park in Napa California. Raw files from X-T3 with Fuji 18-135mm lens, processed in LRC.

    First, happy 2024 everyone! Second, a thumbs up for all the wonderful images posted on this thread. Really inspiring work. While waiting in the car for a rain shower to pass I took a few abstracts ...
  • While I always enjoy looking at the wonderful photos in this thread every week, this will be my first contribution of the year. Hoping I can get my act together in 2024 and participate a bit more ...
  • Very curious to know more about how you are viewing AVIF files on your HDR TV. Do you use an AppleTV 4K, or some other streaming device? If so, which app(s)? Or, is the HDR TV reading the files ...
  • If it is not too much trouble, can you elaborate on how you view AVIF files on your LG OLED television? Are you using the Photos app on an AppleTV? Connecting your MBP to the LG with an HDMI cable? ...
  • A heads up that the Tokina atx-m 23mm f/1.4 for Fuji X mount is one of B&H DealZone items today, on sale at $269 (normally $499). DealZone items change daily, so this sale ends at midnight EST Nov ...
