  1. I truly like your first photo Alan. It is indeed almost impossible to see young people without playing on the phone. The XF 90mm renders beautiful foreground and background bokeh.
  2. Thanks for posting this image and link. I don't mind the guy included in the picture but sure this is getting overused. The cool thing of the story is that he had to revert to the backup camera with slow lens and make it work. He certainly did a good job.
  3. Alan, I like the colors and composition - a lovely little bird. How do you like the handling of the new lens?
  4. Hi Mike you need a Micro-B USB cable to connect to an iMac. Cheers Daniel
  5. Congrats Mike on your decision for a Fuji camera. I'm sure you won't regret it. You'll certainly find good support in this forum. Wishing your health getting better soon.
  6. For the past three years I've been using the Fuji X system in parallel to the D800. I'm very happy with the Fuji system. I never really liked the D800 and I was still looking for a fast camera for weddings and events. Just before christmas I've replaced the D800 with the D750 which is much better for my needs. I'll be using both systems in parallel for the next years. I was thinking of fully switching to mirrorless many times but have decided to keep both. Nikon might bring a mirrorless system for the 100 year anniversary in 2017.
  7. my trusty FM-2 works still like a charm:
  8. Congratulations Aguinaldo - I like the picture a lot.
  9. Traditional procession with Santa, lanterns, torches and cow bells in our town. All D800 and AF-S 35mm f/1,8
  10. Thanks Dalles, The forum is great and I can learn a lot. Daniel
  11. Thanks Fons, Mike and Andreas for your comments. I'm now also happy to have found a better crop. I was a bit cought in an attempt to have the sun more towards a third into the picture. It is very rewarding to get such good advise.
  12. Great way of conveying mood and thanks for the story behind.
  13. Thanks for your comments Andreas. I too think the pictures is improved by cropping tighter. Here is another attempt:
  14. Here's another one from the same evening:
  15. Thanks Merlin, Andreas and Mike for your feedback. Mike I like your boat pictures. I hope you had a nice stay here in central Switzerland. I tried another crop and like to get your comments on this version:
  16. Tonight on a boat trip to Lucerne D800 & AF-S 35mm @ f/8.0; 1/400s; ISO 400
  17. Nice series Andrew - I like R/C models myself and I really like the colors.

    Hi Simone, I can recommend the lens. It's definitely a good addition to the excellent prime lineup.

  20. Congrats Dallas, I like the composition and colors
  21. Hi Ann, I'll need to try the dehaze tool in ACR. Your hint on using it also for separation is interesting. In my experiment I was using levels and not the new dehaze tool.
  22. Armando, I took your image and tried to dehaze manually in Ps. Lr does quite a nice job.

    16mm f/1.4

    Hi Pluton, I shoot RAW and they aren't corrected for distortions. Same applies for the 14mm. Both wide angle lens designs are highly corrected for linear distortions. You won't find this for a DSLR as it is much harder to design such a good wide angle lens with the bigger flange distance.
