Captain Hook's recent activity

  • Jupiter-11 135mm f/4 MF lens . This Russian Юпитер is a clone of the Carl Zeiss Jena Sonnar T 135mm f/4. I got it, even complete with the original black plastic container. Almost 50 years old and ...
  • Replied in Howth
    Interesting colors. :-) I don't know if it is your (uncorrected) lens distortion, but the horizon is slanting and the small lighthouse is also leaning to the right. :-( Maybe some little pp to ...
  • After a 20 minute ATB ride from my home into a local small forest, I saw this: vertical stitch with PTGui Pro. Nikkor Ai-s 105mm MF lens Autumn leaves: Shot with a Helios-44m-4 MF lens Mushroom time: ...
  • Again, my cheapest lens is doing its thing: The different stages of decay: 3 piled: Sunlight from behind: Although this Jupiter Helios-44m-4 is no macro/micro lens, it performs imho very well up ...
  • Nikon has issued an update: http://downloadcenter.nikonimglib.com/en/download/sw/107.html Changes from Version 1.2.9 to Version 1.2.10 • Fixed an issue with the Map workspace that resulted in maps ...
  • Looks familiar. On a cold october day in 2011 I shot something similar : I choose to emphasize more on b/w contrast.
  • I like this one the most. Especially the 'layering' of the different parts. Sky at the top/background, some mountains, then some hill side, some vegetation and finally melting water flowing towards ...
  • Replied in Color
    The color version! Because I'm not color blind. ;-) I prefer to see the world in full color, especially these kind of landscapes. Would love to see @ higher resolution to explore this great alpine ...
  • It doesn't work yet. :-( Anyone else any concrete and/or meaningful response from Nikon?
  • Could be... but no known solution (yet)... ;-) Probably (?) something changed in the api/interface with Google maps or something like that. But there is hardly any info available on how the ...
  • Although I'm not a Mac user, I have the same issues with the latest (and previous) version. :-( I found this: https://www.nikoncafe.com/threads/view-nx-map-not-working.306510/ So, we are not the ...
  • Replied in 20 years ago...
    Thanks David. Film pano? Nothing special I think. Just some individual images I shot with the Pentax SLR. With the idea in my mind, that later... much later, it would/should be possible to make a ...
  • Thanks. Yes, the snow coverage declines, as the day/sun progresses. The previous pano was shot in the morning. Then I hiked around the lake , through the snow , and on my way back, most of the ...
  • Yep. I know, you know. But sadly the vast majority of images is still displayed in medieval resolutions. :-( Oh, you mean analogue film panos? Here you go : Shot in 1997 with a Pentax SFX. Especial ...
  • Thank you. As regarding to the colour balance; yes that's a tricky one. Depending on which browser you are using, the image will display somewhat different. E.g. IE doesn't respect color profiles, ...
  • Created discussion thread 12 years later, another pano...
    Location: https://www.flickr.com/photos/chasa-imago/albums/72157648402502726 October 2, 2002, some fresh snow cover on the mountains around the reservoir : Shot with a Nikon D100 (!), a humble ...
  • A few years ago I shot some images @ the largest & operational steam-powered pumping station in the world: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/59339470 Which was powered up again today: https://ww ...
  • It's definitely a black&white museum. ;-) As regarding to your impatient waiting for the D850; what/how would these images be any better and/or different when shot with a D850 instead of a D800?
  • ... when sailing on a boat. Didn't think the images would stitch, but they did! :-) Although when looking at the individual shots, the viewing angle is different every time, the stitching software ...
  • Created photo thread Giant head + statue + blue =
    this: Is it nice? Is it strange? Is it art? I dunno. ;-) It's remarkable; that's for sure. :-)
