Some comments on Day 35:

@pegelli: Lovely how you caught the snow coming from the mill; and that lens is sharp (maybe put it back on my wish list?)

@@Jetsplace: Love to see some more of our very pleasant Day Prime Meet!

@Rusty: Great dog, great sharpness!

@Robbie: another set with great variety. Coffee to go is my favourite: it's full of details to be discovered. Is the language of advertising in Germany English too, like in Holland?

@russelsbags: welcome to the Day Prime Challenge John. And Ama is welcome too! He seems quite a character. I wouldn't mind seeing him a bit more close up when we reach the teles.

@smcabbott: welcome Shauna. A 35 and a 400 make quite a difference! . This one gives a nice overview, but I like the 400 shot more.

@Tspaulding: welcome to the Day Prime Challenge Tom; a very nice self portrait, with an intriguing colour scheme. How do you like the Biogon on your NEX?

@ADub128: we've looked at both sides of the 19-35 now. You have an interesting bench there!

@tigertimb: I love these long exposure night shots. It makes the light and the colours different in some way, and turns ordinary streets into beautiful scenes.

@Peekayoh: I can see the cold!

@saxbike: you got yourself a great subject there. I like your experimental shots, goes well with the subject.

At your service.. although I realised that I did not reinstall the Spyder calibration software.. so pictures are almost unprocessed as I am uncalibrated at the moment. Only little levels and unsharp mask after resize.

1. Going to the beach


2. Natural B/W


3. testing for flair


4. testing for speed


5. show us your minimalism.


6. Darosa for model


7. Same viewpoint looking to the left.


8. In camera HDR function


9. In camera B/W or monochrome something..


10. Blue box


11. Shadow play (No photoshop used just standing at the right spot)


12. Com'on.. skate our way and play model please!


That was only a small (oeps 12 sorry) selection of my 270 pictures taken that afternoon.
We had a lovely walk on the beach with soft pastel blue and yellow sky. Cold but sunny and no wind.
It was great to meet up with darosa who was so kind to let me use his 35-70 lens.

Jet, having seen your style of making photos, I am impressed by the sharpness and composition of these shots.

It's not me.. its the camera that made me this way.
And I always have to correct horizons as it it very hard to keep them straight that way....

Thank you Leo. Yes in Germany it is the same as in the Netherlands, English as advertising language is getting more and more. But most horrible is the mixup of English and German: "Schlecker for you vor Ort"

Yes, that´s true. I would like to use it in combination with a fullframe body because I like the bokeh of this gem and think that it would be even nicer with a fullframe. I also love the colors and the sometimes 3d-ish look of the pictures you can make with it.

I'm sorry to hear that Jet. Is it very painful?

#3 Your own flair is very evident even if the flare here is not.

#11 Sitting on fence posts can be painful too!

Nice selection!!

Maybe it is where you are but it's depressingly grey here.

Uhm.. well not really painful. Just a little unbalanced.
Thanks for your comment.

Peekayoh, I'm pleasantly surprised by your Day 37 contributions; I hadn't expected another MIR making an appearance. It has a good repuation among the M42 crowd. But its preset system is a bit odd; at least my copy's is: F16 is wide open and 2.8 is .., well you can guess. As I don't use this lens that often I had completely forgotten and only rediscovered this when I had taken many shots already. But it's a funny little lens.

I like your 2nd shot; it somehow shows how this lens draws (and what I like about it); and the last 2 are good too. The MIR and miserable weather are a good match; and of course Russian glass likes booze.

Here are mine (I have the 1B version):

1 A winter sunset

NEX-5N + MIR 1B (37/2.8), F?, 1/160, +1 EV, 100iso

2 The girl with the golden hair

NEX-5N + MIR 1B (37/2.8), F?, 1/250, +2 EV, 400iso

3 Numbers 2

NEX-5N + MIR 1B (37/2.8), F?, 1/1000, +2 EV, 400iso


4 The right mirror

NEX-5N + MIR 1B (37/2.8), F?, 1/60 +1.7 EV, 400iso


5 Mirrors on both sides

NEX-5N + MIR 1B (37/2.8), F?, 1/200, +1.7 EV, 400iso


6 The left mirror

NEX-5N + MIR 1B (37/2.8), F?, 1/100, +0.3 EV, 400iso


7 Light at the end of the tunnel

NEX-5N + MIR 1B (37/2.8), F?, 1/640, -2.7 EV, 400iso
