^ Looks good to me Charlie. How much was that? Which adapter are you using?

Another image from Sope Creek Paper Mill Ruins. Two image focus stack with the Laowa 12mm. No blue sky that late afternoon. Just a warm glow from the afternoon sun. Let me know if you find it distracting. I thought about cropping some of the top.

I have been meaning to comment on your photography.....You really do a fantastic job with your architecture photography. Your stuff seems to have a slightly different and unique feel. Great work!

So I'm basically freaking out. Things are sooooooo different since getting a high resolution monitor. I LOVE how things look at home....razor sharp, pure eye candy. Things look good on Flickr. That said, my shots are unacceptably soft here on POTN. TO the point that I will not be posting until I get this sorted out. For example the shot below looks very very soft....even on my crappy monitor here at work. Other peoples shots look much sharper. How does this shot look to you guys? Seriously, it's razor at home.

It looks amazing on Flickr and probably about as good as can look here. 1024 or 1280px just sucks. I've had plenty of occasions when I was unwilling to post here because the image just contained so much texture that it looked awful at 1280px. Seems especially true for high detail landscapes.

On FM I post my shots at 1600px and they look good there.

Looks a bit compressed here but looks good on Flickr. Does POTN have a direct upload feature like FM? I much prefer their site for viewing images against a darker background. That and the ability to direct upload at 1600px is fantastic.

Agree with you David. Do you export out of PS at 1600px just for FM and another at 1280px here?

It's interesting to see the recent interest in the Loxia 35mm on FM. That lens was largely ignored by many including me but it looks to be a great compliment to the Loxia 21. I will get my "used" copy on Friday.

Great! I guess I'll do my best to not get too hung up about it...But dang....the forum compression/softness is hard to swallow when it looks so nice at home. Again, This has all cropped up since I treated myself to a 4K retina display. Thanks for taking the time to comment folks!

Here's a pano from the area we were exploring. We climbed two peaks...the one all the way on the left (Idaho's El Captian 9,901ft) and the peak on the right that is set back a little (Perfect peak, 10,269). Amazingly beautiful area.

It doesn't look soft to me here...those UHD displays will get you! Looks great btw...maybe recover a little of the sky, but other than that...great looking spot!

Thank you. I was also looking at your gallery the other day and you have some great pictures. Amazing locations and such a beautiful family.

Yep definitely. Very cool place to shoot. Hard to photograph though due to the woods. Nice portrait.

Robert (MM) is probably the best person to answer your question David. For me, it depends on where the hummer is and what it's doing. For most of my shots, the hummingbirds are perched on the feeder or on a bush. In those cases, I think small spot and AF-S probably gives me the best results. I need to get off of "A" mode and switch to "S" mode more and crank up my shutter speed. I leave iso on auto.

AF-C and wide focus area can work great too but it will tend to focus on whatever is closest or has the most contrast. That AF mode is probably best for birds in flight but I don't have much luck with BIF anyway. I have a hard time finding them in the viewfinder to begin with when they're flying. For the two recent shots of hummers in flight I took, I was in AF-C/wide and when they would nervously perch and fly off the perch briefly and back on again, I was able to get a couple of shot where they stayed in focus that way.
