From today's walk.

K-1 and DA*55 1.4.
This lens is so cool, better than an old style lens, portable and easy to manage unlike the DFA 50 1.4. Good for someone who wants better than legacy glass, but isn't up for the cost or inconvenience of the DA* 50 1.4 Excellent instead of best in class.

I took 8 photos of this leaf, 1ƒ.4 to ƒ8. One of the ƒ5.6s was good. Everything else had issues, on the ƒ8 the bokeh was getting busy. Yesterday I took an ƒ5.6 lans and thought , "I can do better with the ƒ1.4." Turnes out ƒ1.4 was to narrow to keep even less selected for it's flatness and appropriateness for narrow DoF. And I ended up getting the best image at ƒ5.6. The universe works in mysterious ways.



In keeping with the theme, a snow capped fungus. ƒ4 on this one. I know I paid for ƒ1.4, but you just can't make it work all that often.


Wonder how much snow we have? My dogs are standing on 18 inches of packed snow. (500mm) There's another 4 feet on top of that fallen tree. We have lots. I'm getting serious about keeping this whole image in focus. ƒ8 and be there, and all that jazz.

That is nice. I like the texture of the water. I've been trying different shutter speeds to find what i like. You used 1/10 and i like the coarseness.

I can see you've switched on the bokeh feature. Ahrr when shooting a leaf at f1.4 you have to hold you breath to avoid the leaf falling out of sharpness zone. The dogs are nice, they look like ahead of the track and waiting for you to catch up

Thank you! I've used ND filters and exposures of 5 ... 10 sec in the past but for me 1/5 or 1/10 sec work better because I think you get a better sense of the dynamics of the splashing waters. But that's just a matter of personal taste, I guess.

The dogs can't go off the snowshoe paths, they disappear in the snow if they do. After every snow we have to go do all our trails again on snow shoes to keep them open. The dogs can't wander off path and sniff around, so they can do nothing but wait on the path. Spring can't come soon enough.
