not me

- not decided if I should go with color instead of the bw that I initially planned

Horses for courses: pour moi, colour wins the election, never mind the race.

A cold day in Mallorca; the cherry wants to hibernate.

Forgot to mention: this was the 2.8/180mm @ 2.8 using the brilliant handy grip that I made up from a cycle tyre. There was a glitch, caused by that awkward little slider button that locks/frees the aperture ring according to the exposure system you opt to use, fouling the patent grip and resulting in a blacked out prism. For some auto methods you have to slide this tiny button (size of part of a grain of rice) down and lock the aperture ring at f22. As I never use these auto settings for shutter or diaphragm, I have just taped the pesky little item down with more black tape to match the rest of the tape on the camera. Such a creative few minutes!

Yes!


Thanks, Russ; when it was young, the thing gave us some cherries, but in recent years only blossom. Perhaps a classical, literal case of the early birds.

Thanks, I think it suits us retired guys: we see things in a slightly more lightly melancholic manner than the young. To wit: Slobodan's cheerfully bright leaf in the rain (or ice?)... ah, optimism of the younger set!

Keith and Peter - thanks for the comments.

For a change, I used the D700 on that shot because as I had to dig out the 180mm from the same stacker box... is that lazy or what?

The shot's pretty straight, with no colour correction, and just a couple of layers to correct for the flat files I set the camera to give when new. I also gave a little sharpening to the leaf, having masked off the rest of the pic.

I like simple pictures; fit my mind to the letter! Thanks again.

This reminds me of something my grandfather would say when he was in his mid-seventies (I am now 80), when seeing an atractive young woman walking on the other side of the street. He would shake his head and say to me, "I wish I were seventy again!"

Seeing them on the other side of the street speaks volumes! I jest; seeing them clearly is often the problem. Post August's twin cataract expulsions, I can see them and everything else on the other side of the street very clearly, but as with those who creep up from behind, processing intent takes a little longer. Even my own, which is pretty dormant.

Can't remember if I mentioned it already, but post cataracts, using the screens on both cameras (once the diopters re-set properly to suit the new situation) has become far better, especially so with the D700 which has a head start due to its natively larger image in the viewfinder. I've had a Nikon magnifier on each for quite some time, and that helped a lot at once. However, I also tried looking through the finder of the D700 with the 24mm in place, and was amazed at how easily I could get things looking really crisp even with that difficult lens. Perhaps I have been chastising digital screens a little too harshly, with much of the problem residing within my own eyes.

Win some, lose some...
