They are called Fishhook cacti and quite common in Arizona. They usually form a crown of flowers near the top of the plant. The above shot is not typical.

Here's another view of the same cactus type but with more common flowering.

First attempt at night shots

Last week-end I gave a try at night shots with the Hasselblad. In short not a lot of success and I need an obturator cable because the switching from o to t does not work very well for me.

500CM/150 Across 100 stand develop Rodinal 1+100





500CM/80 Across 100 stand develop Rodinal 1+100



I usually export from LR but LR does not allow you to export in Gamma 2.2 and for these photos the conversion to sRGB is a killer.

Cheers,

Luc

I use an inexpensive, old-school, screw-on cable release on my 500C/M. Surely, you have one of those?

Doesn't Lightroom let you select sRGB as a color space for an export option? Gamma 2.2 is part of the sRGB color space.

Yes I have two I just could not find them.
Yes it does and that what I have been using so far.
Usually there is no problem, but this time the conversion changed drastically the curve like moving black and white point - really unextpected.

Cheers,

Oh yeah. I know that situation very well. Same with my tripod. It takes a mounting plate. When you have more than one camera bag, it seems the little things are always left behind in another bag. So now each camera bag has a mounting plate, cable release and lens cleaning kit in it!

Noordwijk Space Expo

Noordwijk Space expo is a permanent exposition with the aim to raise awareness of the work of the European Space Agency (ESA) and space travel in general. It is located in Noordwijk in the Netherlands. The expo is in a hangar with no natural light coming in. I was pleasantly surprised with the results. Are you guys (& dolls?) too? The pictures were taken with a P645N with the SMC A-75 mm lens and Fuji 160C film.

Nice pictures. It looks like you had enough light to stop the lens down or did you utilize a mono/tripod? Maybe "gals" would be a good alternative for "dolls" in this context.

I used a tripod. Since English is not my native tongue trying to be funny often is not more than that : trying. But familiarity with a language comes with trying. That said: "dolls" or "gals" is the same for me.

I see. I thought you were asking if dolls was right since you had the question mark next to it.

No, it was just a way of being polite to adress the ladies on this forum too, just like the gents. But please keep in mind I lack a certain context-sensitivity regards the English language compared to you lucky native speakers.
