Too many shots here are giving me a warm fuzzy feeling... time for some "reality!"




Big thanks to clarkey for heading out to the frozen falls with me.

There's enough detail in there for me to come up with 3 or 4 more compositions.
Here's 100% crop of the center:

You're getting some great stuff from that Super-Wide! Did you actually manage to find on in SA-mount, or did you convert it somehow? I have one in K-mount which really deserves a lot more use than it actually gets.

Those crystals are beautiful, but who says it has to be cold to be real? I reject your "reality!"

Mine is in the Sigma SA mount, I really like it, prefer it over my 30mm f1.4.

Restoration is slowly underway. It's a volunteer museum and the restoration takes years

Wow, hoopsontoast, those are great! I love the architectural abstracts. Is it an insult to say those would be great desktop backgrounds? (Like, I could look at them all the time kinda thing...)

Anyhow, it's April 15th, and we've got snow falling in Toronto. Trying to get up to speed with the 180mm Macro:

From today's afternoon walk... DP2 Merrill

Walking the hardtack Lk. Road.


An odd place for a hydrangea


Tripper selects a stick to play with...


OK, now we're in business.

If I want to play with this type of sensor (mostly landscape and close ups, but less for portraits type of shots), what would be a better combination, a package of DM2 and DM3 or SD1 and lenses. Assuming for the purposes of an answer that I want to get best image quality, or close to it. The cost of the two is a little less than the SD with a lens, but the lenses can be had with stabilisation. Thoughts?
