Re: Introducing Year of the Alpha – 365 Days of Sony Alpha

Congratulations on seeing it through to the end and best of luck on your next project. :) Thanks Jeff! I've really grown to like small forums which at first look felt somewhat 'peripheral' after the DPreview forums. During the year I've noticed that the spirit is much better here than the big and n...

Having Hindu spirituality ingrained in me, I say, as one ends, the other begins (usually for better). :) (aka reincarnation) Thanks for the very personal seasonal greetings! One of the best I've ever heard! Good rebirth of year to you too! :) :mrgreen: -Toni -- Toni Ahvenainen (1976) Year of the Al...

Re: Introducing Year of the Alpha – 365 Days of Sony Alpha

An interesting last picture of the series Toni. The door is closed on the past (year) and/or opening to a new challenge in the future (year). A perfectly "timed" capture. Sury Thanks for the kind comment Sury! However, there's one more coming! :-) -Toni -- Toni Ahvenainen (1976) Year of t...

Re: Introducing Year of the Alpha – 365 Days of Sony Alpha

Nice picture Toni. The six points you list in you blog are excellent and I can see in them where I can do better. Thanks. You had some interesting thoughts on the photographer/camera relationship. I'm not so sure it's that different from the painter/paintbrush relationship. Perhaps the difference i...

Re: Christmas time

Nice picture in itself and a nice tradition, but I'm surprised to see a 'normal' christmas tree there without the massive amount of decorations that I usully see in pictures from usa. Hah!

Re: Tiny sensor revenge gallery thread!

Nice encounter. I live in a town, so I never see animals this size in nature. For me, being there when it happens would be enough.. -Toni -- Toni Ahvenainen (1976) Year of the Alpha - 52 Weeks of Sony Alpha Photography: http://www.yearofthealpha.com Flickr-account: http://www.flickr.com/photos/10926...

Re: My daughter - candid

Seems like you've been in quite rough circumstances regarding the light. Most of the time b&w conversion works, like here as well. I think the vignetting is a bit strong, but I like your initial idea of processing it rough. Fits the picture. -Toni -- Toni Ahvenainen (1976) Year of the Alpha - 52...

Re: Just because...Open thread

First one for me too, because of black background - gives the best contrast with flower.

Re: Introducing Year of the Alpha – 365 Days of Sony Alpha

Really like the slightly abstract view , and always love bokeh lights. :) I will be very sad to see your year come to an end. I have really enjoyed your regular pictures, and the changes of subject like the changes of the season. I hope you will keep posting, even if less frequently. Thanks for the...
