Re: Deformed Photo Subject with Sony 18-200mm

Wow, that's some haze effect Yildiz, it looks like the photos were taken through a sheet of ripple glass...we've got one of the brightest and hot sunlights around and I've never seen a mirage/haze anything like that bad in any of my building shots. Only thing that I can think of that might contribu...

Re: Deformed Photo Subject with Sony 18-200mm

I was baffled to see these deformed lines and contours when I took photos with a different sample of Sony 18-200mm only a few minutes ago. My Sony 18-200mm never showed such deformations, though I was agitated with its tendency to show excessive purple fringing. Can someone who has seen this in a l...

Re: horse's paradise

I found this traditional orchard 10 bike-minutes away from my home. It was cloudy that morning and the light not as accentuated as I would have hoped for, but it turned out to really support that soft mood. And the next day rain set in and all that beautiful blossoms were swept to the ground. Lesso...

Re: Beach Huts

Nothing like breaking our 'three beach huts per post' rule with a vengeance, eh? Oops, sorry - I came over all "Sonolta" for a moment. (no offence Don). I must admit that I thought it was a server side restriction that you had put on a while ago following some 'lively discussions'. I wil ...

Re: Beach Huts

Ah so, thanks Tom I probably should have guessed...shouldn't I, actually we are sort-of having some overcast windy cool drizzly yecch at the moment so yo-all over there can rejoice in the fact that it can even happen here. Yes, that does make me feel a little better I must admit to rather liking be...

It keeps you warm and dry from the wind and rain. You never been on holiday on the North Sea coast? It isn't like Queensland. :lol:

Re: Newbie Help - Studio Flash and hotshoes

I was hoping to avoid paying the silly money Sony want for a pc socket. I had seen the cheap hong kong hotshoes and was considering running it with a Wein inline safe sync (£50 and not £140) You could always get one of those cheepy radio triggers of ebay - that way you seperate camera from flash an...

Re: landscapes

at work mine look very blue and yours look almost sepia toned. As this is not disimilar to what I am seeing, perhaps your work monitors are nearer the correct than your home one. Have you looked at David's calibration image on the two machines to see which one looks most natural? They look pretty g...

As you suggest - the dog one looks too blue to me.
Your chipmonk ones on the other hand look too red/warm, and also rather heavy/dark.
