Nothing too spectacular, but it was a good excuse to use my new lens.

What was that?

The AF on this f4 is really slow, the rocket is already gone (on the road) for a long time...

Bomb squad was disposing of some stuff. What looks like a rocket trail on the ground is actually the det-cord going to the explosion. The cord moves at something like 22,000 feet per second. The fact that I even captured that is amazing.


Some more pictures as well as some explanation as to how I shot it and why is in this thread...

A bit of unusual type of photo for me. I love the amount of detail this camera gives me.

Focal length 70mm, ISO 100, f18, 13 sec

Absolutely gorgeous yet spooky spot!!! That tree is a monumental place... I would dwell on it for as long as I can taking off-center images, centered images, details, etc. The way the light spreads through its branches is just amazing! I'm guessing there is some localizing-light PP there? At any rate, the place is great!

If I'm being picky, there is a slight burnt spot at the top center of the tree that may be trimmed down a bit to regain detail? Again, just picky, love the photo and place!

Rafa.

First time using the 70-200L and i'm impressed. I did shoot this at 1/125th but you couldn't get the timing of this candid any better!

Thank you Rafa. The place is lovely and not that far away from me. This is an old wood, with a whole alleyway of those trees. I have more photos of them (some close-ups) with a nice light coming through the branches, but wan not sure anybody would like it. The place is quite spooky and very quiet.

There was honestly 10 min of PP. Corrected levels, reduced saturation a bit (after converting to sRGB, greens looked a bit oversaturated and darkened the background trees a bit in ACR).

I promised myself that the first thing I'll do when I see some sunshine is to drive there and walk around this place taking pictures. I'm sure it will look even better then. This was taken on a overcast day.

I noticed the bright spot on the tree when I was PP, but decided to leave it as it is this time. I'll be more accurate when I bring home pictures with sunshine rays coming through the branches :)

Friends,

I have said it often here that I envy and admire the folks that share here beautiful Landscapes made with this lens. I find it more 'obvious' those all-encompassing photos made with wide angles rather than those produced with long lenses. For those few that manage great landscapes with long lenses I have nothing but admiration. I don't have the correct 'chip' for finding the right spots and compositions that will benefit from the long lens.

I am here to share one rare example of mine :) ... this was so far away that the long lens was more or less the only choice. I normally would not have gone with the long lens and would have ruined the image. Luckily, I didn't this time.

Hope you guys enjoy my Misty Waterfall:

Wow, this is stunning photo Rafa! I'd be more than happy to have this in my collection.

I wish I had locations like this anywhere near me.

I want to go where they have scenery like this!!

This afternoon I took out this lens for the first time in 3 months--since I bought the 70-200 2.8 Mark2. Boy did I have a good time!! This feels so light and tiny and unobtrusive comparatively. It was like shooting with the nifty fift...but IQ wise, surprisingly little difference.
