Enjoyed the hare drone!
OK, you're saying in the pic above there is something that you just don't quite like?
I CANNOT see it....at all.
I'm seeing the pause of the hare maybe spotting you for some intrigue with me the viewer
asking what does he see, the incredible detail throughout the hare,
the awesome bokeh balls in the water, and even small I can readily see the eyes are sharp.
Now that bokeh ball beside his (her) right leg, is that a specular highlight? If so I without knowing what it
was might have cloned it out...but I had to look for it in league with this conversation concerning exactly what
a specular highlight actually is. And if those 'balls' are specular hightlights, color me the crazy one, but I actually
OK, this might not have anything to do with this conversation; then again it just might. Look at this image Stu-https://www.flickr.com …/album-72157692054125621/
Won't embed here since not a DOii. See the what I call solar flare-circle? Some would absolutely hate that. I love
it and don't see it as a negative of the Laowa 15/2 at all.
Vanilla or chocolate
p.s. I'm going with strawberry today.
As well as learning a bit,with you bro, and having fascinating convo's............you also make me smile ALOT ...........I'm a mint man my self
Beyond the specualr hilight thang what you have articulated is what the image says to me aswell,the pause is actually scent,not me. Being super picky I wish the hare was closer,so what is going on in the eyes was more visible to my viewer,it's stunning how the light is working through those eyes,but the hare is a bit small in frame for my viewer to really see,which is a shame for me
Robert,love the solar flare,creatively it's right up my street. I'm learning slow and hard,I suppose I try to be dispassionate ( hard i'm the exact opposite about my wildlife) about my images, try to envisage what my viewer might see yet at the same time,I want to present my creative side what ever that means. So I feel that most image makers would present the above frame and crop the water at the foot,plus do something about the SH ( spec hi) you have mentioned, also, plausibly, that lower one. Buddy I hope I'm using the right term for SH. seems we are both talking about the same thing at the very least
I feel they are a bit overpowering Robert but they also add something in a way. That something is what you see and has sort of left me arguing with myself,because I'm of a similar crazy it seems. As I say the artistic side lens flare solar flare or backlit moves something in me,I deliberatley will seek such images,even in less than ideal conditions such as above. Rob,i've only made images of wildlife really with two lenses,the DO since november last,so I have little experience to draw upon ,essentially that's why I raised this to find out what more expreinced folks feel and see and how that might manifest it's self in post,if at all.
Robert I'm a simple man,lenses are tools to me, I'd like a big tool kit, but heey I'm incredibly lucky to have this lens,I could only dream of such a year or two back. The DO concept is a bit off the wall,built in a totally different way to more conventional lenses,all but alcamey,with light.I feel i am seeing some things that this lens does slightly differently and need to learn how to harness that creatively in my image making.
Cheers for the thoughts and the smiles.
take care kiddo
