Cats like this one live by the dozens in the medieval old towns. They belong to no one in particular, but are accustomed to humans. They're usually friendly and somewhat curious, but won't let you touch them.

 

Here's what happened when I got closer, it backed against the stone wall and finally bolted:

Guess I'll finally post some stuff up now that I've gotten things rolling/together. I particularly like the second one. It feels like I've channeled my inner 80's Ridley Scott.

Thanks V. No need for a macro lens. I shot it with my camera's 50mm prime lens @f2.8, and added on this:

 

http://www.amazon.com/Raynox-DCR-150-Snap-On-Macro-Lens/dp/B0007KS7D0

 

 

It's an achromatic macro filter. It uses multiple elements, so the image quality is nothing but superb. I wanted to return it for financial reasons, but I couldn't make myself let it go.

 

The DCR-250 focuses even closer, but I don't need that kind of magnification.

Did you use any kind of filter on this shot?
The range looks phenominal, and a bit unreal haha. I've been looking up more these days with the camera after seeing some of your architecture shots a while back.

Ok, I realize my last post may have stopped the thread dead in its tracks, so I'm going to break the spell myself...

"After Darkness, There's Always Light". Shot in the medieval town of Buggio, Italy, where ancient stone walls rise up high and natural light is a precious scarcity.

To chance upon a scene like that is just amazing. And the shot is just that.

Hammond got himself into this kind of situation when they were in Italy. I'm sadly a season behind.

It's a shame it won't work on the 24-70 because of the 77mm threads. But it looks very interesting for my 50mm prime too.

Those shots are easier with film in my experience for some reason. It took some time with the raw file to get it to where I wanted it. It's a whole new workflow with me, especially since I'm more than happy with the in camera processing and the time it saves, but having Lightroom map out a couple of hot pixels is moooore than worth it.

Love the hot and cold dynamic on that first shot. I wish Apple had thought to put the sapphire glass on the camera for the 4 and 4S. My plastic got very scratched up and took only blurry shots after a whole.

Almost forgot... https://www.flickr.com/photos/23518281@N08/

The telling 5 year gap in uploads lol.

Just the B+W UV filter that's always on to protect the lens. I'm a minimalist and don't care for filters. ;)

Looks like he's leading a fashionable mob to something, like a still out of a movie.



So this place specializes in beef, apparently. But the proprietor has been working on a ramen for a while and instead of jumping right in with a ramen joint, he has decided to make the ramen a limited menu item, only available at 12-1 AM on Friday and Saturday when the kitchen shifts gears into Ramen only mode. It's unique in that it's the only beef based broth ramen in New York City.

Yeah, it was awesome he decided to walk in front of the whole crowd, since he was the most striking character in that group of people (well, I was a little more taken by the gorgeous lady in the white overcoat, but you know what I mean).

 

That place looks like an izakaya; I miss eating ramen but it's way too hot these days to go for a bowl.

Gotcha. There's no nudity, but the pics are somewhat sultry in pose and processing. Currawong/warrenpchi, please let me know if they're not kosher so I can take them down.

 

I can't post my favorite photos, since the subject didn't want her scantily clad identity exposed on the net.
