  • Replied in Back focus?
    It seems that the camera may be back focusing.  The condition where part of the image behind the intended focus point is in focus but the intended plane of focus is soft. To me there are parts of ...

This round tower, built of mica-slate interspersed with granite is about 30 metres high, with an entrance 3.5 metres from the base.

  • Submitted a challenge entry Tea
    In Urgup, Turkey we had a memorable travel encounter while walking the streets of Urgup in the geographically whimsical Cappadocia with its fairy towers and underground cities. A group of four elderly men were enjoying tea at a street side cafe and invited us (guide, wife, daughter, and me) to join them. Our guide translated our pleasant exchange while we enjoyed the Turkish tea.
