Re: Some Fall Colors

I was hiding the 3rd image in the group. It is my favorite and always was. I knew it when I saw it in the viewfinder. Manual focus on that one. The rest are second best. It only takes an instant. I got lucky.

Some Fall Colors

Went out late this afternoon hoping to get some color. Took the ZA 135mm as it is my favorite lens. Wanted to expand on my recent fascination with dreamlike images. Enjoy. http://a4.pbase.com/g10/64/511964/2/168347192.IacZXgMA.jpg http://a4.pbase.com/g10/64/511964/2/168347198.71dWXZQ5.jpg http://a4....

Re: Bored

Thank you Yildiz. These images did not match what I saw in my head. I got close though.
Will try again.

Re: Bored

More motion but in a different way. Another windy day but this time at a Maryland Eastern Shore wildlife refuge. How to show the wind? Long lens, narrow aperture and low iso. a99, Tamron, 150-600mm at 600mm, f.13, 1/40, and iso 200. http://a4.pbase.com/g10/64/511964/2/168332770.OzUbHubg.jpg The next...

Re: A99-2

All are excellent. Your arms must be tired carrying all those cameras around.

Re: Bored

Thanks for commenting.
Yildiz,
It's a 4 stop ND filter. It slowed the shutter speed down to 2 seconds.

It was windy today. Thought I might try the neutral density filter. RX1 but it has the same sensor as the a99 so it should count as an A mount image. Cropped.

Re: Night shots - open thread

The image I linked to was taken with the RX1. That has a 35mm f2.0. That is about the maximum focal length you would want to use. The 24mm should be fine. It's always about composition. Light painting the foreground is something I hope to try. Already bought the flashlight.

Re: Night shots - open thread

Sury, I know I am the wrong Jeff but YouTube is a treasure trove of information about this very topic. You need a fast wide prime, a solid tripod, remote trigger or set the timer, and no or minimal light pollution. Then you need to time the moon (rising or setting, preferably new moon phase). Southe...

Re: Ruffled Feathers

Check the bird in image 2 in post #2. Clearly this bird was self mutilating. Having new friends willing to interact/groom allows the healing to take place. I have other images that I thought should not be posted. Birds with one eye or others that have plucked their breasts bare were heart wrenching ...

Ruffled Feathers

Ruffled Feathers is a bird sanctuary in a shopping mall in Hanover, PA. Odd place for it but it's just a large room with many large cages for exotic birds that have been through tough times. Some were abused and some outlived their owners and could not find a home. These birds are highly intelligent...
