Re: Forum backup restored to 13/9 16.xx hours

Hi David,

Thanks for fixing things up!
I lost a couple of my messages from yesterday, but maybe it's for the better as they were in Dr. Harout's 'Storks' thread. I'll send my 'seagulls' in an other thread and relieve him. :)

Re: Mount Ararat

Ah, these are trully lovely Dr. Harout! :)
A lot nicer than the previous shots of the mount if I may say...The hazey look gives it a mystic appeal. And an industrial town in the foreground I gather? Contrasts with the plain natural beauty of the mountain.

Thanks

Re: Add link to photoclubalpha.com in forum

Hi David, If implementing codes doesn't work maybe we can have a 'PhotoClubAlpha Homepage Contents' forum, have a direct link there and enlist the article entries as topics, much like what you have done with the 'Web Content Announcements' forum on the board. This way we can just go to that forum to...

Re: I am so sorry!

Congratulations! Both for the nice photos and to the newly weds Thomas. :) You've managed to catch the groom with shut eyes more than once ... a situation very authenticly prone to such candid wedding shots. But they look over-joyed, so everything must have gone sweetly as it should we gather.. :D T...

Re: A900 DPR Preview.

Hi, I hope I'm not wrong but I came by an update for the Picture Motion Browser at Sony website; http://www.sony.com . Dr. Harout may be pointing to the same one. The link is below. To view the available A700 updates you have to select your computer operating system from the drop-down-menu box at th...

Re: New Neighbours

May all of our neighbours be as genuinely sweet as these little ones Dr. Harout, looks like they'll be beneficiaries for a long time. :) Soon they'll become even bolder and follow your actions with inspecting eyes to learn where you actually get the food from and start helping themselves shamelessly...

Re: Firmware v04 for Sony Alpha 700

Hi, Although I am an Alpha 100 user at the moment who is waiting 'the A900' to make her final decisions of purchase either camera or lens wise, I am one of the most pleased to hear of this news of improved firmware. It's a pity some sweet upgrade was not introduced for A100 as I am not planning sell...

Re: French Alps Medieval Village

Must have been one fine day Thomas, :D It's steep and looks like an agony to walk up there with no shade at all but the texture of the city was well worth taking photos of. I can relate to the weather as it has been far too warm for weeks without a single drop of rain in Istanbul which makes us all ...

Re: couple of insect shots

Hi, Thanks for the links Sonolta, I had seen them when I first decided to buy a Tamron lens. At the time I was weighing my options between the Sony 100mm and the Tamron 90mm. I had ordered them both on the same day but the Tamron dealer acted faster and the lens was sent to my adress almost the seco...

Re: couple of insect shots

Thank you Roger,

Your experience put my mind at rest a little. I'll try to set a day aside for botanical experience to see for myself too.

Re: couple of insect shots-How is Tamron 90mm at this?

Hi, These photos are very admirable rogprov! So are Sonolta's in their own right... Thanks for sharing. Handheld and catching the opportunity of good composition is hard to come by but you have succeeded nicely. I wonder though, do any of you own a Tamron 90mm, f/2.8 macro lens and were you able to ...

Re: Zoo

Hi Jonathan, I would also say that they are good. Maybe you needn't be so hard on yourself at all, as those are all very candid shots and seeing the animals in their natural mood of the day looks very appealing to the viewer! I enjoyed them and it's good to see this lens at work as well from a techn...

Re: advice on buying a sigma or vintage minolta

Hi David, How can I ensure that I am not getting a 'first batch stock' 16-80mm Carl-Zeiss? This lens has been around the market for a lenghty period of time now, so can I feel more safe about purchasing one nowadays? I can get them from Sony Store in Istanbul around October ensuring a definite new-m...
