Portrait / Re: Can we identify this man?
« on: Today at 12:35:19 AM »
I am baffled by some of the responses in this thread. OP sees a photo of someone who obviously is doing something wrong and wants that man be identified so he can be stopped. Is there something wrong with that? Seriously…
Would you want him doing this to one of yours?
I would not want anyone to do that to my daugther and my wife!

AFAIK you need a special lens cap for the B+W slim filters.

You don't actually. I'm using XS line of B+W Clear 007 filters on my lenses and lens caps are holding just fine.

+1 I also use the XS line. For the 16-35 f/4 I use : B+W 77mm 010 UV MRC Nano xS-Pro Digital E Filter

The slimfilter is very thin. I am not sure if the lenscap will have enough grip to be attached on to the slimfilter. I do not use the slimfilter.

I like this sunset. You're very lucky to have such a view nearly everyday. Especially if you compare that to those new yorkers  :)

We never see Western Scrub-Jay's at our house. Then when I was practicing with a rental 100-400mm, this one dropped onto my fence to smile for a photo. 1/400 5.6 ISO 100
Very nice photo.
Great background color. Goes very well with the color of the Western Scrub-Jay

Very nice.
Is that sunlight / beam that colors the wing?
