    Vertical panorama of Hong Kong Central with the 24mm PC-E (shifted down and up, then stitched)...I can kind of tell the extremes of the shift movements are a bit soft but it doesn't impact the final image that much.

    And that concludes my blue hour/night Hong Kong shots...I've got a few B&W photos to post as well:

    Pushed the a73 sensor a bit here...single exposure into the sun processed in Lightroom going for funzies a bit into the HDR look territory. Hope the finished look does not look too artificial, but I wanted to play around

    Usually late March and early April is best for Cherry Blossom. They have a tracker on several websites to tell you the best bloom time. :)

    I actually like the pics, both composition and colors (they give that nice vacation vibe), yeah DR is low but that can give a cool high contrast look

    Anyway I was bored at home so I played a bit with some light painting

    Thanks. The third one I played with one of the settings before uploading. It's called "bleached".


    This one I was playing with the settings when it happened. I opted for the pic than correct settings

    Not sure how this will look on here since I don't want to blow out the thread width. Messing with panoramic.

    Gorgeous, love the sand texture and composition :)

    --------------

    Anyway, played a bit tonight with some light painting in a nearby park, don't have yet a remote shutter for the new camera so i was limited to 30 sec exposures

    Source of light single flashlight (Olight R50 pro - on turbo can do 3200 lumens for about 3 min)

    Blended two exposures, but i had a lot of trouble getting to the top - the flashlight is not a thrower and the trees are huge

    Nope. Lancaster, CA. The Antelope Valley has more to offer than Joshua Tree.

    Was in Santa Ynez for a friend's memorial/life celebration. No pics of that, but got out and up Figueroa Mountain Road and Zaca Ridge Road for some half decent pics. Pushed my old 70D a bit, and was traveling light, so just the workman 18-135 STM on the camera.

    I can't make up my mind which composition I like better on this:

    I think the first one, as it lays out with the old perspective grids like this:

    I don’t know what F/1.2 lens you have, but I’m jealous regardless.

    On the CV40. When focusing I am seeing fairly strong fringing - purple and magenta. Is that normal? When using the 12x magnification on a Sony a7R2.

    The halo behind this is actually another leaf - DOF obliterated it.

    Some lenses just have bad chromatic aberration. Nothing out of the ordinary.
