I did something crazy during holidays

I decided to write a blog relating my personal experiences (more like ramblings and random thoughts) to my photography.
Please check the site at your convenience and let me know what you think.

Re: Just Some Shots

Nice B&W shots JT. The third one is dizzying for me.

Re: Minolta (Sony) 500F8 Reflex

Sig and Valery,
Excellent shots with that lens. I really need to hone my technique with that lens.
Thanks for being the source of inspiration, both of you.

3 image Astro Pano of Milkyway at Pigeon Point LH

Somehow I missed posting this one. This one is a 3 image Pano with each slide of pano beinga 9 image hdr. I used 3 DF. The HDR slides were stacked using Sequator SW and the slices were stitched using MS ICE. Total of 30 images. Each of the image is at 5 sec exposure, f2.8, iso 1600. https://live.sta...

I agree. I am hoping to capture BIF one of these days and it will prove its worth in its (lack of) weight compared to my 70-400G. :lol:

My attempt with Minotla 500f8 Reflex Lens

Taken with Sony A99M2. We had a very gloomy and cloudy day. So I could not try the settings that Valery and Sig have used with great success. These were taken indoor, camera on tripod, no flash, long exposure shots. Some are at auto ISO and some at at ISO200. Please let me know what you think. Shutt...

Re: Minolta (Sony) 500F8 Reflex

Valery,
You are killing me, I mean motivating me. :lol:
That is one heck of a shot. Love the B&W effect.

Sig,
Thank you for the suggestions and validating my inference.
Now I am on to some experiments. :D

Re: Tiny sensor revenge gallery thread!

Love the perspective on the second shot. Makes me want to go to the top to see what is there on the down hill side.

Re: A99-2

Wonderful captures Valery. The high res A99M2 helped me with prints. I have printed up to 24X36 without any problems.

Re: Minolta (Sony) 500F8 Reflex

Great captures Sig. Hmm. Looks like I need high shutter speed, even if iso is boosted. Let me give it a try.
