Nice, David!

It's good to see that you're behind the lens again after Sandy wreaked havoc on your life.

Best Regards,
Ed

Hi Ed: thanks for your post and PM. We are presently on the road nearing the end of a two week trip to the mid west to see grand kids graduate from high school and college. We will return home to LBI this Wednesday. After 6 months and 9 days, we were able to move back home. Still a lot of work to do, but it is habitable!

I was an early adopter with the Pentax 645D. I imported mine from Japan, through Hong Kong ( international warranty, keep your fingers crossed about break downs, repairs, etc). It is a fabulous camera, with such easy, intuitive controls, that all makers should study it. Mirror lock up is a simple external knob. Turn it, and you get lock up. Turn it the other way to cancel it. HDR is a snap. Legacy lenses dirt cheap. I have manual focus lenses that I snapped up, used, the same week the camera was announced, long before I actually had the camera in hand. I have 35mm, 75 mm, 120 macro (Famously sharp!), 150 mm, 200 mm, 300mm EDIF f4, with brand new old stock,matched 1.4x multiplier, and 45-85 AF zoom. The average price I payed was about $150 to $175, except for the 300mm which was, as I recall, about double that.

I have some really amazing images taken post Sandy of the surreal skies, and repaired dunes. I hope to start printing when I get home. My Epson 3800 and 7890 were idle, and subjected to freezing temperatures for 6 months. Getting them up and running was a different story.
Nice hearing from you, my friend.

Dave, is that a single capture? No compositing involved? If so, it is simply spectacularly good.

The image is two captures. The forground and angry bay were one shot; the sky was another; same general direction and time of year. It was raining, but the image did not show it very well, so I enhanced it using a plug in.
Thanks all for comments.

Another 645D image. I think it was a 35mm lens and polarizer, tripod (very windy), mirror lock up.
Thanks

Time to focus on what's important - photographs !

If you're about to reply to another D800 comment - REFRAIN YOURSELF and post an image to this thread instead :-)

Mamiya C220 TLR.  Probably 50mm lens, but maybe 80.  Don't remember for sure.  WAG at the exposure because the battery in my meter had died, but about 3" if I recall at, likely f8 or f11.  This is, largely, a melt runoff stream and the water was VERY cold.

Mamiya C220 TLR.  Don't remember the lens or aperture.  If I recall the film was APX 25.

I love this image.  It looks like a cg movie still (I mean that in a good way).

Where were you standing?

I was hoping to get this photo out for yesterday for the anniversary of D-Day but I ran out of time. This is from a shoot last summer while we were in Nova Scotia. Robert "Whoopee" (don't ask about the nickname, trust me) Wentzell was there for the D-Day landing as well as other mission along the coast. He has fought with the Canadian and American marines. Despite being a happy go lucky guy now you can feel the sadness in his voice and see that he is continually sad in his eyes. Of all the stories he told us the one that hurts the most is the fact that he can't feel true joy anymore. Everything in his life is shadowed by the things he has seen and done during the war. Take a moment to remember the men and women who have fought for us and sacrificed their lives so we can have what we have today. Whoopee signed up at the age of 15, can you imagine your children, or their children doing the same? The thought of that is terrifying.   

These were shot with a combination of a Nikon, Canon and a 501cm with aptus 65 back.
