  • Thanks! Yes, the roadrunner composition is too tight, and I wish I had a bit more room around it. I skipped processing it for a while because of that, but eventually the bird's pose made me change ...
  • There are all nice images, but especially the three of the leaves on the ground. Excellent! I'm not sure I understand your comment about the post processing. What program did you use to open the ...
  • Please keep us posted on any progress, and definitely on the results: what actually got replaced, what the final cost was, and how long it took. I would be lost without my CX 70-300. If you ...
  • Point taken - your scrub jay looks fine. But do you agree with Tord's statement that the AF-P DX is "much softer at 300mm?"
  • If the IQ isn't any good at 300mm, then the AF-P really isn't an alternative IMO. The whole point of having a long focal length is to be able to use it at the long end! Further, my AF-S 300/4D has ...
  • Replied in young love
    An interesting shot - could any of us have been that young at one time? There appears to be a lot more nose in theme than I expect from a J5 at ISO 800; any idea why?
  • I like the tight shot of this Downy Woodpecker. IQ looks pretty good for that lens.
  • Terrific view of the cranberry harvest. There are cranberry bogs in south central New Jersey that I've visited when chasing after birds when I lived there so many years ago, but I never got to see ...
  • J5 with 18.5/1.8 is one of my favorites combinations, and I keep setup handy around the house at all times. I like the low viewpoint you have used here, and nicely saturated colors as well.
  • I love the pathway lined with trees. Very inviting - I want to walk down that path.
  • Replied in Taking a break
    Taken a few days ago while tasing up at the local convenience store. V2 with 10-100 @ 100mm, shot from inside the car in my usual cowardly manor for such photos. I can't decide if this guy is ...
  • Without the disclosure I would never guess what you had used here. They all look respectable. I think the secret is reveal in your comment about continuing to enjoy using the lens - that's what ...
  • Thanks. I was amazed the first time I saw the flag art - such great imagination and talent! And I am also very happy to see that it has not been defaced.
  • Thanks for commenting. I have mixed feelings about this. I enjoy seeing the bird, and enjoy getting photos. But I also recognize that every visit puts the other smaller birds and the lizards at ...
  • Created discussion thread Variety Pack of Photos
    First, my apologies for recent low activity. Lots of non photographic stuff has been going on so I haven't had much chance to comment here. So I've made a random sampler of semi recent photos to ...
  • Replied in City landscape
    I like the subject and think it can make excellent images as either color or monochrome. But as presented I find both versions lacking in contrast and the color version lacking in saturation. That ...
  • Replied in Another matter
    I am sorry to hear this and wish her and you the best going forward.
  • Created discussion thread Recent backyard birds (again)
    It is still mostly backyard birds or indoor cats, but at least our temps have dropped back down into the double digits and it is beginning to feel more like Planet Earth outside. I've got my old ...
  • I was watching all these items and I may have even made a bid on the V2. I'm glad to hear that the seller is taking back the defective 10/2.8.
  • Did the seller also have a V2, an 18.5, and a 10-30 PD lens up at the same time?
