  • Really like that skyline shot. You caught a nice collection of clouds, and the Merrill did its distinctive cloud rendering. David
  • You've exposed this well. It's really hard to avoid blown-out droplets, and most of these are fine. I like the background too. David
  • What? You think I was too subtle? :-) How about this? white-out David
  • No time for photos this weekend, so here's one from earlier this year: David
  • Thanks guys for all your suggestions. I did more tests (slanted ruler) and it is not front focusing. What it is doing is mis-focusing most of the time at f-ratios faster than 2.8, when I use AF. MF ...
  • Nice! That skin around the eye reminds me we are looking at a descendant of the dinosaurs. David
  • I got a Sigma Art series lens in the pursuit of the best IQ - DPR loves this lens. but in autofocus, it appears to consistently front focus, such that my test shots (target 10 feet away) look ...
  • Replied in My view
    As Mike said,  I've done several comparisons between the K-70 and Sigmas that I own (SD1M, DPxM), almost all focused on using pixel-shift (PS) with the K-70. My conclusions: 1. It's very hard to do ...
  • No. I'm standing at the top of the little peak whose shadow is projected on the ground about a mile away. Therefore the size of my shadow is less than 1 pixel. David
  • Thanks, Vitee- i go to this area of the Sierra at least once a year. The photo opportunities are endless. david
  • Off CA-168, just before Starlite Drive: That black half-circle on the left edge is roughly where I was standing. Here's the view walking back to my car. I didn't go down that way tho, it was too steep.
  • Owens Valley, California. Bishop is 10 miles to the east.
  • Replied in Buttermilk Road
    From August. Supposedly there were ranches back here in the mining days that supplied buttermilk. I guess they had cows back then which ate sagebrush. I was standing on that peaklet who's shadow ...
  • It appears to me also, that the noise in the bottom layers looks random, while the noise  in the blue layer show some sort of pattern. However, one's brain is prone to seeing patterns where there ...
  • Replied in DP0 M
    Kendall- If I remember correctly, you advised me to manual focus the 8-16 a couple of years ago. Since then I use only MF with that lens, and the results are pretty good. David
  • Yes, it works that way now. However, I'm 90% sure I used to be able to use M.UP and self-timer to take PS images. As I've said up-thread, self-timer only gives sharp PS, so I don't care that much ...
  • Yes, you are right. That gives me PS images that are sharp. I still don't know why I used to be able to use M.UP, and can't now, but I don't care that much when self-timer gives good results. Thank ...
  • I thought that might be it. There are two modes - regular and remote. But both do the same thing now - beep forever
  • But it previously worked with a single shutter press
  • Replied in DP0 M
    You don't like the 8-16 mm? David
