Gradually moved digital culminating in Gfx50r. Primarily landscape photographer.

  • Created discussion thread To haze or not to haze
    Lightroom has a slider for haze and another for clarity. In short time I used Lr I would dehaze and increase clarity. I have been experimenting with going in the opposite direction, that is ...
  • Hi Jim, Yes, I agree it is a great tool in post processing and allows you to appreciate an image that you might otherwise discard.  Of course, you must have had your fair shair of dealing with ...
  • That would save me the price of an external screen. I will have to check my flexibility. All the yoga classes only seemed to make me stiffer. This looks like a variation of downward dog. Cheers.
  • Great set up, I will have to look in to it.  Perhaps the displays are 4, now.  How does it work in bright  sunlight? I can always throw a dark cloth over my head like I used to with 4x5. Thank you.
  • Hi Mads, stunning shot and great exercise in training your eye to see new angles. Thank you.

    Bravo Stan. Great commercial line:-). And lines are properly restored with minimal interruption.
  • Replied in Focus?
    Hi Matt, I used auto focus and relied on decent depth of field, so I was not concerned about focal point. The mid field areas appear to have the same focus. It really is interesting that I ...

    I hope I don't sound like I am trying to hound you with my praise of the Nikkor 800mm large format lens, but this weekend after dozens of images of quaking aspens in the glorious colors, the one ...
  • Replied in Perplexing ?
    Score points for Monsieur Jim !  Bird poop is an excellent observation regarding specularity. Now I have a new term in my vocabulary to boot.  Did you work on power Iines in a former time? Thank you.
  • Replied in Perplexing
    Hi Teddyboy, I just went to post the same discovery, Newton and Leibniz all over again, yes, I did see the faint dark line.  Kudos to Monsieur Jim who is usually always right.  Thank you. Regards, ...
