Beautiful coastal wide shots ishimitis and one from Down Under 2351HD.
Matt - braving very nasty looking conditions there.

...the weather was more benign here today

A35 f3.5 on 645D
Thank you - it's great to have a (heavy) wide again. I could do without the SR to make it smaller as it is more awkward fixed to the camera when wandering around.

Nice.

Yes, and it's snowing again this morning. I'm getting the skis back out this weekend!

Was out of pocket for a few days on business travel, but took the camera outside to test my new DFA 35/3.5 last evening along the river

Pilings At Twilight
645Z & DFA 35/3.5

It always feels good to go wading in the cool waters of the California Delta.

Thanks and good luck with your outing!
I'm going out tonight again. It's National Park week and admission is free so I'm going to try and catch it somewhere extra nice.

Nice! I like that you kept the water smoothing to a minimum.

Thanks - with seas like this, I try and keep shutter speed to between 1/5 and 0.8 seconds. The tide was on its way out, and I haven't put my wellington boots back in the car as yet or else would have got in to the water. Not a lot of wind, so there were few splashes going over the top of the rocks.

My favourites are 3 and 4. They were shot right after each other with the camera on a tripod and my finger on the shutter as I have one of those faulty cable release sockets and I find the wireless a bit hit and miss - though I am using an unofficial one I got from Amazon for 5. The official one stopped working. There were a group of 4 in a row which I'd love to put together in a composite, but I don't know how to do that - can't get my head around how to make an image a layer and blend them.

The shutter speed is just right on those, they came out really nice. Any less blur and it would seem too static. It's just enough to show the motion while keeping detail.

If you have Lightroom 6 you could just make them a HDR for a quick composite. I like LR's HDR as long as Auto Tone isn't checked.

I tried that in LRCC and it only used two of the images. I used to have photomatix which would just merge rather than use tone mapping. I seem to have deleted it from my system as it is no longer there - I so rarely do HDR now.

Here are two more from later that evening, but before the moonlit shots:

1.



2. Taken from beyond the broken bush you can see above as are the moonlit shots upthread:

You don't need to IMHO--the first in the two you just posted is to die for.
