Cool shots, especially this last one.  I really like the lighting.  Using a 17mm for portraiture is quite challenging to say the least, but you kept the camera nice & level, so they turned out really well.  You must have been quite close to the actress!
He he, I got a few strange looks, when I came crawling across the floor. But the fun was to use the T&S on something as active as this and not just tripod mounted, live view architecture and interior shots. Phenomenal lens!

Interesting lighting. In this impromptu session how were you getting fill light back into the model ? It doesn't look as if there was window light from the other side of the room. Good tones and colour, would have never guessed it was 17mm.

The first was shot in a room with 2 dominating windows and nothing more (which is easy to see). The other two had windows at both sides (you can see the reflection on the painting behind her on No.2). But the almost spotlight like effect on her face was pure luck. And I agree, it does not look like typical 17mm images.
Constantly learning, with more equipment than skills.

Here are some recent shots - the first one was posted elsewhere:


I was happy with the colors on this one:


A love how easy it is to do a panorama:

To all,

Here's some firework pictures I took of the 20th Anniversary celebration at the Wildhorse Casino near Pendleton, Oregon.  I was probably within about 600 feet of the action so some of the explosions were nearly overhead.  As an experiment, I reversed a 1-stop gradient neutral density filter (i.e., dark on the bottom) to  deal with the brighter action near the surface.  It wasn't quite enough so next year I'm going to go with a 2-stop filter.

Thanks for looking,

Wade

Nice shots, Neuro.  The sparkles on the Eiffel Tower came out really well!

Thanks!

It took a few tries to get a shutter speed that gave a good 'density' of those 20,000 white lights.  A 6 s exposure captured nearly all of them on, but I was going for a more random look to convey the 'sparkle'.  Fortunately it runs for 5 minutes, so I had ample time for trial and error.
