  • Created photo thread An early morning storm
  • Created photo thread 2 Shot pano with RX1Rii
    There was a new target for aiming while warming up for a quick nine holes this morning:
  • I have used a Rokinon 12mm for almost 3 years; shooting mostly landscapes and some architecture. For most of these I set the focus at/near infinity and f/5.6 aperture. This brings everything into ...

    Union Covered Bridge The bridge is a 120-foot-long (37 m) Burr Arch span that is 17 feet 6 inches (5.33 m) wide and 12 feet (3.7 m) high. Joseph C. Elliot built the bridge in 1871 from local oak . ...
  • Created photo thread Another wildflower scene...
    ,,,with the RX1Rii on the golf course. Milkweed for the Monarchs.
  • Since I like to do landscapes, I find it useful and do use it some; I also use the golden ratio (which is approx. 16.2:10). When printed with a small border on Legal size (14x8.5) photo paper and ...
  • I like the shots a lot and the wide range in your focal lengths used. The NX1 handled the high contrast scene of the engine close-up very nicely.
  • ...while also enjoying some golf and my camera. Lance leaf Coreopsis (yellow) and Horse Mint (purple)
  • Looks like you're having fun taking some very nice photos; I like them a lot. On the portrait I might experiment with a 1:1 crop, removing most of the dead space from the right side. If you know ...
  • I've used it a couple of times, but I don't really do portraits. An impromptu sample at the end. Not as fast as the 45mm, which is very fast, I think. The 60mm is sharper, but I'm not sure that's ...
  • And if you put the lens right up to the window and the bird is close enough, a flash can be used. Here's a sample - admission here, haven't used this method with my new Sony yet, so this sample is ...
  • Replied in NO!!!!
    I like how you seemingly state this so casually; if I didn't know better, I would assume you're speaking from a vast reservoir of experience. So I will speak from my very limited experience of ...
  • I have no idea how realistic those flying scenes were in "Flyboys", but I sure did find them interesting. Thanks for sharing your flying photos - looked like lots of fun.
  • You didn't state what your criteria are, so I will make these assumptions :-) (1) Fast focus (2) Fast aperture (3) Excellent resolution across the frame
  • This really shows up well in the morning sun. For me the quote that circles the clock face is interesting. It's actually a memorial tower honoring the students who perished in WWI. Yeah, I think ...
  • Thanks for the heads up - I'm struggling to see it, though. Two of the photos were shot in landscape, one in portrait. So the 'lower edge' has got me confused. Maybe you can point out the affected ...
  • Created photo thread Practicing with a new camera
    Just wanted to share some early efforts with an RX1Rii from today as I get used to a very nice tool: and a two shot panorama from a week ago:
  • I have the 45mm prime - it is my sharpest across the entire frame lens. I have a 16-50S also - it is very good at all focal lengths, but it is softer in the corners at 45mm compared to the prime; ...
  • Very nice - thanks for sharing. I would love to see the night sky there - though for me an oxygen tank at that altitude might come in handy. The NX500+12-24mm makes a nice combo for those sweeping ...
  • With landscapes and astrophotography, I would like very good resolution across the whole frame. The 30 & 45mm primes are the best at that, along with the Rokinon/Samyang 12mm f/2 lens. The ...
