Re: High Waters (not talking about pants)

Hi, Sig.

The photos and the story-telling is most interesting. If it weren't for the dramatic reality of the flood and its probable aftermath, maybe resulting in mud accumulation, mold and traces of damage to concrete and metal surfaces, each photo is intriguing by itself.

Thanks for sharing,

Re: Close Up with Minolta MD 100F4 Bellows

Hi, Sury. :)

Good of you to try a rather old technology on a new model camera. The details on the second and third shots are really crisp and all this sharpness without a tripod is impressive.

Thanks for sharing,

Re: #images=180o/angle -1

:D I certainly hope that you won't use this kind of photography in substitution for uploading multiple beautiful photo frames, Sury.
Good shot and technological gimmick, though. :)

Re: Bees in the backyard

Last two are also my favourites, Sury. So nicely captured.
I had a hard time spotting the bees in the others due to shadows.

Re: Tulips - Washington Lake Park, Albany, NY

These tulips are as beautiful as the reason you were in Albany, NY, Sury ! Happy graduation to your lovely daughter! :D Feels good to have a savvy person on psychology in a world it's needed most at these times.

Re: A99-2

A very enjoyable photo stream at Flickr, ValeryD.
I especially liked the hands-on exploration of the Stingrays and the splendour of the Peacocks.

In the fourth shot, the rippling water acquires almost a silvery or mercury quality… :)

Re: Why I (think I) need a CZ16-35

Hi, Sury. :) Most of all, if it will make you happy, reason enough to go for it. Zeiss also picks up an extra lot of colours and details that may not be as easy to show in clarity by other lenses. :D Such a lens will deserve more than the width of your lovely garden though. Your last trip and the pr...

Re: Waterfall A77 back in action...

Thanks for sharing, Barry.

The angular layering of the rocks and the random projections of the surfaces make this a very beautiful waterfall; an eye-pleaser and zen corner of the planet, for sure. The moss growth adds to the charm with vibrancy of green.

Re: Backyard flowers

Hi, Sury; :D Your backyard is home to some very happy Clematis growth! The last photo displays its beauty and climbing nature against the wooden fencing. Roses are gorgeous. Is it possible that there was a raindrop stain or maybe some grease on the lens glass? I remember getting similar frames durin...
