Thanks for the kind words Ine! As said before, the inspiration, examples and help from all of you mean a lot to me and are an important element in my development!

Paul's set is stunning indeed.I like #1 and #18 a lot as well, but the skate looks great to me too!

We'll have a beer the next DM!

shame the 1st one didn't come out too big.

Thank you Ine. I had some time off and put it to good use. The rule is 1024 pixels wide, or 960 pixels high. This poses a problem as I use Argote's Flicker poster to extract my Flickr images with Exif, but that can only do 1024 or 640, so I use 640 for portrait oriented images and that is small. Anyway, I hardly ever do portrait oriented so I'll bend the rules and use 1024 always. I will replace the two images.

no offense?!!
and c/b me, my screen is just 19" square (but terrific! -i.e. Eizo- ).
I'm an obedient girl, but no longer posting anything smaller than 1100 px for landscape. and usually 650 for portrait. (unless heavily cropped). because too often I ended up with tiny little pics when converted to 1024 and sometimes not. a batch of 1024px pics usually didn't appear in simular sizes. at times ridiculously small.
(often wondered how normal people managed to keep pics page-wide).
(no little helper here, PS does the calculations. 1024 w/b 683px high, 1100px w/b 733. portrait 600px x 900px or 650 px x 975px).
why is that?

a little birdy told me you'll soon treat us to India pics again?

Indeed Ine. I arrive in the night, short sleep, two day meeting, fly out in the night. The only good thing about these trips that I do not have jet-lag back in the NL as I don't get used to the time difference. I will take A7R2 with Oreston and possibly even my travelpod, but my experience with such trips is all work, no play. And something I struggle with is the way the locals see me as a source of income the moment I take to the streets. For photography I need peace of mind and tranquility.

I must admit to using the 1024 size for portrait too. It's only a little more than 960.

As far as I recall, you could link to any larger size and the forum webpage will autoresize for display on the device. However, if you link to a massive pic, your device still needs to download that version before internally resizing. This has implications for bandwidth and page loading times (and also giving pirates access to your full rez pics....)

That's how it works. When I joined Dyxum a long time ago I had 5 lenses max (well, maybe 10) and I had never heard of 'bokeh'. Joining Dyxum has made me the photographer I am now (and a lot poorer because I have a lot more than 5 lenses now ...).

Congrats with your anniversary!

Inspired by Brian's link to a video about an Altix > M42 conversion, I converted my Telefogar 90/3.5 (afaik only in Altix mount) to M42 with a 7mm M42 extension ring. Works great! And with a M42 helicoid adapter MFD is a lot better (as in closer) too.

15 Graphic glass


16 Rings of fire


both with: a7s + Meyer Telefogar 90/3.5 (1958; Altix)

It's a good 90mm. Small and light and sharp wide open (which is not so wide, but that makes it, yes, small and light).

Leo, was Fredís link anything like this one?    

Edit: And your penalty is to let me borrow the Telefogar when we next meet again on a Dyxum meetup

It was me mentioning it most recently when I bought my Altix Trioplan 50/2.9. Did not find it via Brian's Dyxum post, but immediately on Youtube

With the days getting longer (and hopefully brighter) the thoughts about a DM are coming to mind again! Will that be Meyer only?
