Re: Koper, Bled, Slovenia

The 1st HDR image is magic. Bravo.
I cannot conceive of capturing that kind of image while on vacation. You are always on the job.
Secondly, a genuinely happy face never disappoints. So glad you had such a good time.

Re: Too Much Speed

I sent a thank you note to Gary Friedman for his e-book on the RX100 vii and included a link to the video as an example for using the high frame rate feature on the camera. He suggested that the shortly to be released next version would give the video a mention. Pretty cool. JT http://www.friedmanar...

Re: Too Much Speed

Took video clips of golf swings. Can't imagine anybody else cares to see old men swing golf clubs but they really found it valuable.

I have some new ideas for slow motion videos. They are memory hogs though. 240 frames per second adds up quickly.

Re: Too Much Speed

Suffering avoided Sury.
Just reinforces the idea of always having a camera on board.

Too Much Speed

and too much turn. Nothing fancy here folks. Heading to the golf course to test out the slow motion video capabilities of the wife's new RX100 vii and came across the following. Couldn't resist stopping the car. Nor could the police. JT Straight out of the camera. https://a4.pbase.com/g12/64/511964/...

Re: San Marco Piazza, Venice at Night

I love these night shots.
Hand held?
I wonder if it stays lit there all night long. I would have gone back when it was deserted and set up my tripod.
Hopefully you have more to share.

Race Track

I am prepping for a possible shoot of a lifetime and for that I have to see what the a77ii can do video wise. Fast objects with minimal shake is the task. There is a drag race track not far from my home and I thought it might be a place to give it a go. Well, the video testing was less than optimal ...

Re: Flowers 2019 - Your Flower and Garden Shots

1 and 3 are to my taste with 3 being a real winner. I have never used flash and fear I would fail completely if I tried. Is that a rationale for preferring natural or just regular indoor lighting? Maybe. Still, I find the light to be overpowering in some of your images (1st in set one of this page a...

Re: Milky Way

Bingo. You may wish to incorporate light painting to accentuate foreground. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ko2IuhKDA9Q I know you like complexity and have a brain for it. I on the other hand do not. The shot I provided previously was a one off. I just happened to be in a location that had dark nigh...

Re: Milky Way

Your treatment of the milky way is improved. Shots of 95-100% sky don't do much for me as it ends up being wanna be deep space photography. https://www.pga.com/news/golf-buzz/best-jimmy-walker%E2%80%99s-space-photos-year So it seems you will need to deal with foreground objects and blend the two.

Re: Flowers 2019 - Your Flower and Garden Shots

Sury, So many social engagements. So little time. :twisted: Last ones. Taken with the 70-200mm at 200mm. Not sure of the difference in DOF between 135mm at f2.0 and 200mm @ f2.8. They look pretty similar. https://a4.pbase.com/g12/64/511964/2/169500825.7xNrlXuR.jpg https://a4.pbase.com/g12/64/511964/...

Re: Flowers 2019 - Your Flower and Garden Shots

Closer is better in most things, except rattlesnakes.
Will test the 70-200mm tomorrow morning.

Re: Flowers 2019 - Your Flower and Garden Shots

As promised. The ZA 85mm. Disclaimer: holding camera with one hand, umbrella with the other. While it renders detail and color beautifully, I don't feel that I can get close enough to the subject (for the kind of images that I want to take). https://a4.pbase.com/g12/64/511964/2/169484152.v3SLeabp.jp...
