My picture story of my day

Is now the time POINT


Where the medium format leads away?



Is it perhaps the END?


Is medium format perhaps obsolete, rusty?


One thing is certain


One will live ETERNAL


And if you do not agree, give me a call


Freely translated and not taken seriously

Thanks Mike. Particularly if you mean the capture as well as the location
Sorry, i need to be more clear sometimes when i comment. A great location is a beautiful thing, but being able to render that beauty in a photograph really takes skill and you most certainly do that with your captures!

Oh, thank you again Mike. I didn't really think you would comment solely about a great location. That said a great location concentrates the mind and, if the mind is functioning, rendering is the result. Sometimes my mind does not function as well as I assume in the field, then rendering is a severe challenge.

Love the astro shot.
Thank you. I am also very pleased with how it turns out. I took some others with zero 'unnatural' light and they don't have anything like the overall effect. Sometimes just the right amount of point light pollution helps with composition and overall outcome.

The landscape in Skye is often wider than 28mm, and in many respects wider than 25mm (which I don't own). I shot quite a few panoramas and several did not work out at all due to the wind and trouble I have locking the exposure. Sometimes I have it in manual with AEL and the shots vary so much they can't be stitched without exposure variation seams. Other time it is just fine, and I don't really know what I'm doing wrong or right. Here are three that worked Ok or very well.

These two are shot with the 28-45mm at consecutive stages of sunset - blue hour. It is the bridge and backdrop at Sligachan on Skye. The later I cropped back to 4 x 3, but could not have captured in one shot. I think it works better that way.





This is stitch of 13 vertical shots with the 90mm at sunrise below the totternish ridge on skye. We arrived at the top of the road viewpoint to find it too crowded to park our oversized mobile home, so this is the only shot I got in that area. It is astoundingly detailed at full resolution.

I've never tried panoramas in any form but your work is inspiring unkipunki. Thanks for showing.

The weather was very changeable in the hessischen highlands. When changing between the sun and the clouds, surreal lighting moods arise again and again.
