  • *Very* nice, Eric! Love the color distribution in the background. Well seen and taken. Phil
  • The variations of color on the same plant are really interesting. Great detail and color rendition. Thanks for sharing, Tom! Phil
  • Great shots, a joy to view - all of them. Seems the lens is in very good hands! :-) Thanks for sharing! (1) Phil
  • It definitely is! A really sort of ancient universal IR remote from JJC - one of those with separate buttons for Pentax, Nikon, Canon and Konica/Minolta (Sony wasn't active back then, I guess ...). ...
  • Fascinating, isn't it, Andrew? Really made me look very closely myself twice. :-) Thanks for looking and for your comment! Phil
  • Thanks very much! It did. It was raining a little, but fortunately it was warm enough and no wind. Phil
  • Thanks so much, Tom, for looking and for your kind comment! Was really fun to do those. Phil
  • They are, aren't they? Really impressive structures. Thanks very much for your appreciation! :-) Phil
  • Not that much of an effort besides lugging the tripod and waiting for the damn long exposures to finish. ;-) Thanks very much, Eric! All taken through the blue hour BTW, but the last one of course ...
  • Thanks, Mike! Was fun to do, even if there was some light rain during the shoot. One think that might interest you: Was the first time I shot with a geared head, a Benro. Performed really well and ...

  • It sure has! Interesting enough I didn't really see it that consciously as I took the pics, and so later in PP I was quite amazed. :-) Thanks for looking, Chris! Phil
  • Exactly. Only very few people would want to carry that and pay for it. There are some out there who would, and a few of them might even need it for good reasons ... ;-) On the other hand I do use ...
  • LOL! Another take on a general problem. :-) But have to point out that I also tried to show that IMO there are some basic conditions like the method our eye focuses that make us fall for this ...
  • Yes, it was. Somebody moved it to this forum, and I have to admit that it did not state explicitly that it related to two recent threads in the Pentax SLR Talk forum concerning focus breathing - ...
  • It is ... :-) Very well put, Mike! There is nothing to add to that IMO. Phil
  • Created discussion thread Musings on "focus breathing"
    Why are we often so emotionally engaged if we talk about and discuss the phenomenon of „focus breathing“ or „lens breathing“? I've thought about this, and would like to share my musings on this ...
  • Thanks a lot, Rod, for looking and for your kind comment! Phil
  • Colorful, are they? My wife pointed out that these are Garden Cosmos, also called Mexican Asters. Glad you like it! Phil
