The 67II has +/-3 EV compensation, the reason is I want to maintain at least 1 stop overexpose for Portra 400 hence set the iso to 200, and depending on the scene, I use the EV compensation to select whether to +1EV or not at all. EV compensation dial is quicker to adjust than the iso dial. hope this make sense?

But as member of PF has demonstrated, Portra 400 is so versatile that this is not needed... maybe is just my bad habit.
If I'm ever headed to Frederick I'll send you a poke through PentaxForums...maybe we can meet up and cause a black hole by getting two 6x7 Pentaxes near each other.

The rationale makes sense when you put it in that perspective. It had occured to me after posting my previous comment that you might like giving +1EV to portra as a general rule, hence the ISO, and that particular scene called for +1 on top of that. Total sense

Nice. But I don't get it why HDR? The camera can capture more light in a single exposure than is in that scene so exposure blending seems a moot point?

Yes, that's theoretically true. However I tried to work individual shots to get the tonal feel of this one and found it almost impossible. I couldn't set up a tripod for this scene as there was a very strong wind swaying the bridge I was standing on. The combination of the images gives more 'smoothing' to the water flow than any individual shot which I feel is better in this case. Also when pushing exposures, lifting shadows and managing highlights I am not yet very used to these 51MP files and I find I'm getting slightly cartoonish results that seem more 'HDR' than this HDR if that makes sense. It's a bit of learning curve how to best work these 645z images. I think that this image looks more as I saw it at the time than any of the individual frames that went into it do in so much as I can work them at this time. I expect this will change with more experience.

Yes, I see. I try to get natural looking colors on my DSLR often and sometimes they turn out with that "look" no matter how hard I try.

I prefer the color one also. Great depth of field too.

I really love all of the images on this page.

Nice work everyone.

had my 645z+28-45mm lens for a couple of weeks, have to say this is an incredible combo. Lens is a tad rich for some but boy oh boy is it sharp. worth the money if you can find value in it.
I've seen many images of this bridge and this one blows me away. Love the perspective and color.

Its Friday.

It makes me excited for the weekends adventure where ever that may be.

This picture is from a week end exploring waterfalls and mountains. Here my dad drives his troopy across a timber bridge after the days massive hike deep down into the bottom of his mountain property.

Hey, Tom---

That is quite an interesting shot----the headlights aren't blowing things out, and the rest of the scene is subtly lit---including the parts the headlights are shining on. Could you share some details about how you set up this shot, if you did anything special? Thanks.
