Re: Introducing Year of the Alpha – 365 Days of Sony Alpha

Toni, This one perhaps is a better example of Punctum of than the previous image for me. I am beginning to see what you mean. This old dog is still can learn new tricks. :lol: While I haven't ment my pictures to be examples of punctum (I'd be great if I could pulled it off just like that), I'm plea...

Re: Introducing Year of the Alpha – 365 Days of Sony Alpha

Nice shot Toni, though I was not able to relate to the concept of Punctum. I assure you, it is me and not the image or the concept. :) Sury, I assure you it's the French intellectualism where they a habit of making things more complex with theory rather than explaining them. It's a kind of science ...

Here's a landscape in Colombia. Clear view. Seeing couple of buildings and antenna there adds to the image. -Toni -- Toni Ahvenainen (1976) Year of the Alpha - 52 Weeks of Sony Alpha Photography: http://www.yearofthealpha.com Flickr-account: http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/

Re: Oncidium Orcid

You don't mention what kind of aperture you have used, but usually you want to shoot with relatively small aperture (f/10 - f/16) when working with macro images. This will give you a better depth of field. The flower itself is nice, but could use a bit more pop - you could also try vivid mode (or wh...

Love the last two. Sury is spot on with the element in the train shot. My daughter loves 'drinking the rain' too :) Thanks for the kind words, Birma. How old is your daughter?

Re: Introducing Year of the Alpha – 365 Days of Sony Alpha

To be honest, I know that I'm not very good with the technical aspects of photography. In fact I rarely like a photograph just because it is technically good or even perfect. I have found personally, that photographs that I enjoy always pull at my emotions, but many times I'm unable to really artic...
