It was a small crowd that came out to the Greenfield Village. And by small crowd, I mean Aresee and myself! (Hope we didn't miss anyone) However it was great meeting up with Rick and spending a few hours wandering around the Village and Museum...

#1: CZ24-70


#2: SAL18-250 (Thanks for letting me try this one out Rick! I am still amazed at how lightweight and small it is. And a very sharp performer at that!)


#3: SAL18-250 (Who would have thought it would be so difficult to take a panning shot of a bike?)


#4: CZ24-70

Had a great time at the "meeting" with Kirk at Greenfield Village.
It was old time cars weekend, so there were plenty of old cars and bicycles to shoot.

I want to thank Kirk for letting me use his CZ 24-70 & 135 stf. What a great couple of lenses to use.
They are both super sharp and heavy! The only downside is that now I want to buy them both!

Here are a couple of shots from the gathering.

Kirk, with his CZ 24-70 taking pictures of some glass blowing demo. Yeah Right!
Looks like a chaser setup to me. :-)


Some big wheels. Taken with my A700 & the Kirk's CZ24-70


A shot with the Sal 135 STF & A700. A great lens.


Some "olde tyme" music.


A picture of the way "CC" (George Mock)dressed when he was a child.


Overall a great day and lots of fun things to do.
Next time we will have to try to get more people involved.

Well, I saw a grand total of 3 KM / Alpha mount dSLR's at GFV today - 1 was mine, and I don't think the other two were part of this group. If there was a group, I missed 'em. But for those of you who didn't make it, here is a little bit of what was missed... BTW, there were hundreds of cars dating from 1890 to 1930!

Great shots, especially like the statue studying the ancient car

Edit : removed the cross reference as mods now combined the threads

Great shots Kirk and aresee. Especially like the 3 ladies with their beautiful hats. The "old tyme" is also nice but a bit too sharp to be real old . You probably need to find a plug-un that fades the sides, puts in creases, fuzzies it up and adds grain. It's amazing how technology performance improved.

A great selection from both of you :)

Great shots! I particular like the kid with his mother and the detail of a car (with the STF). Wonderful set!
Best regards, Dave

Thanks pegelli,
I agree that was a quick effort using Google's Picassa.
It now recognizes Sony A700 ARW files. The new 3.0 beta version.

Here is another try at "olde tyme" look.




Here is the original jpeg file look.



I would be interested to see what type of treatments others could use to make it look like an old photograph. It would be fun to see how they turn out.


Here is the link to the file:Photo Link

Thanks for looking.
Rick

Sorry we missed you there. It was great weather and a lot of fun cars, for sure. Your pictures give a nice feel of the car details.

Is the last one off of the railroad crane?

Regards,

Rick

Great shot guys. I like them all and makes me disappointed I couldn't attend. The weather was great and while I was out yelling at kids I kept thinking I should be in Detroit looking at old things.

O-well, there's always next time.

That's indeed a more grainy old look with some compromised sharpness. Well done. The "old tymers" in the picture really add to the atmosphere as well. If I have time I'll see what I can do with the file. I'm no expert either so don't hold your breath.

Isn't it fun, now that we can get "perfect" pictures we want to take them back in time!

Yep, that old yellow hook has always been a favorite of mine.

The village was at least 4 times busier then I have ever seen it before (and we are members), but I could see why! The weather was perfect for this event and there were hundreds of old time cars to shoot! Even though I didn't see ya'll, my wife and I had a great time.

Great shots guys!
