You could get good light like this very early for your image or..on a translucent cloud day may work for ya...it always a matter of serendipity and I have found obsession and perseverance helps.....

The pin is pretty close to the stone, no more than a few rows off one way or another.
So many Valiant Warriors there, still proudly in formation even in death.

I don't want you thinking I have no photos of the site yet, I do have several. Just none since it's most recent and final changes that were near to finalized when I was there last.
It is a long drive, an emotional visit both personally and patriotically.

WOW! I learned something this morning....I did not know that there was such a thing as a Photographer's Ephemneris (gazoontite!).  That is really cool.   I bookmarked that ....looks like you have it covered.  Taking a photo could ad some joy and some artistic pursuit for your journey...

Infared, have you tried dual ISO in MagicLantern? If not, you should. There is a LR plugin for it too.

rpt, no...I have read about it...but I am just not willing to load up the software on my $3000 camera...call me a fraidy cat...but  it is what it is.  I know that people swear by ML, though......Maybe I will get brave one day!  :P

Well...Tolusina...thanks...and I was just lucky enough to have a window for light and good post production software!  :P
..also the low DOF that the Canon 85mm f/1.2L offers....

Site Information / Re: Critiques
« on: August 06, 2014, 10:41:58 AM »
I like real criticism from a source that I value.
i.e. I have to know, and respect the source.Its ok to have something to ponder on the next outing... ...and even at that its all relative anyway.

Funny small town story.
  There was a local photographer that had won a contest with or had  an image published locally..can't remember exactly...but anyway..he had a image that got praise. 
He went to a little art store (yeah, they are all gone) on the main drag where he had been asked to hang images in the window, but there was only so much room. The proprietor, who did not know of the notoriety of the above image perhaps,  past it over and requested other images of his to be hung. Upon which the photographer got very annoyed that she had not chosen his "prize-winning" image for the window, she must be a fool and gathered up all his work and left in a huff.

Criticism is a dicey prospect.  I found that it was very brutal on me when I was young and new...
...but now if I like one of my images I don't give a Flying F what anyone has to say...  LOL!!!!
They can enjoy it or enjoy not enjoying it.   :-)

'nother one.

I love mine...
Even put up my 21mm f/2.8 Zeiss on eBay this weekend... Hate to let that go...I needed it when I had the 16-35mm f/2.8L II. The Zeiss just blew that lens away... but not the new UAW zoom.
 I really do not need the f/2.8..and the IS is just what the doctor ordered for most of what I shoot.
I know that is not true for everyone.

That's where mine is heading, and for the same reason.

Please wait until I have sold mine. LOL!

My brain.  :o
ROFL!
 ;D ;D ;D

For me it is the intervelometer. 0 uses in a year and now ML has that built into the firmware.
Other than that, it is the 40 shorty... Somehow the 24-105 seems to be the lens of preference for me.


A little humor is necessary. My second least used piece of gear is my G.A.S. Plug!!!!  (please refer back to my 1st least used piece of equipment!).  :P

I want to buy the Zeiss 135mm f/2 ZE that Dustin just reviewed so glowingly...but I have promised myself that I will not buy it until I have sold my Zeiss 21mm that I put up on eBay for sale over the weekend. So far..so good...but I plan on staying away from open-flame sources until the other lens sells!  :o

Third Party Lenses (Sigma, Tamron, etc.) / Re: Zeiss Distagon 15mm f2.8
« on: August 03, 2014, 01:38:41 PM »
I was sooo torn whether to buy the Zeiss 15mm.   I have the 21mm 2.8 and know that the 15mm would be just as incredible...but after much internal argument...I bought the Canon 17mm TSE f/4 II.  I did this for three reasons.
1. Control of the imaging with the T&S mechanisms
2. Conversion to 24mm TSE with 1.4X III  (very good quality)  I already owned the extender.
3. Cost (which was the lowest of my concerns, but we all like to keep a little money in our pockets).

If I could have both lenses I would....  The Zeiss is more of a "hand-portable lens" and has f/2.8..(but that is not so much a concern for me with a wide angle).
Both are incredible tools. 
And things are evolving even further for me toward Canon, I am surprised to say...because I do always think out of the box.  I own the Zeiss 21mm f/2.8 ZE which I have currently posted to sell on Ebay. One of the main reasons that I had that lens was because of the weak performance of my Canon 16-35mm f/2.8L II.   The images from the Canon did not compare to the quality from the Zeiss....but I have recently sold my Canon 16-35mm f/2.8L II and purchased the new Canon 16-35mm f/4L IS.  This lens is so sharp that I have decided to sell my Zeiss 21mm as I have great IQ, AF, versatility (in focal lengths) and portability with the new Canon UWA zoom.
This new zoom give me this great IQ, AF and portability whilst my 17mm TSE gives me more control and precision when I need it.  With the Canon 16-35mm f/4L IS, the 17mm f/4 TSE and the 1.4 III I feel I have a lot of UAW lens power in my wide angle focal lengths. I also have a Sigma 35mm f/1.4 Art to round it out when I really want AF and lower DOF for environmental portraiture...
but.... I am not leaving the incredible Zeiss glass out of my quiver....LOL!!!...I plan on buying the Zeiss 135mm f/2 ZE as soon as I sell my Zeiss 21mm.   Dustin's review just blew me away, so I just have to have that piece of glass in my cache at the longer end for low DOF when I am not using my zooms.
The Zeiss 15mm is a droolfest, though...no doubt!!!!! ::)  Can't go wrong with that choice.

I attached an image that I shot with my 5DIII and the 17mm TSE in almost total darkness..I needed a flashlight to set up the T&S. LOL.
