very beautiful work

far beyond me

but might I add, you are getting too much of the HDR over cooked look in this fine image. I would recommend overlaying this image with the original and blending in the trees to give a more realistic look.

take a step back. and re-evaluate.

I've used a 77mm filter + adapter combination for three years now without any real issue. This information might help if you already own 77mm filters.

Thanks. I'll check that out, hadn't considered it as an option.

Believe it or not, it's not HDR but done with use of GND filter and Lee Big Stopper. I'm not keen on HDR, especially with long exposure shots because of so much ghosting that happens at fine detail (plus it's nearly impossible to get correct exposure bracketing from frame to frame under rapidly changing light as in this particular case, especially in a stitched panorama setting). It's the use of radial graduated filters in LR5 that I use much like the way I have used old-fashioned dodge and burn (not Photoshop but actual darkroom developing) that might also give an impression that the photo might be an HDR.

Point well taken about being overcooked - it is contrasty and clarity has been amped at the trees. Rather than toning down, I'll see what happens when I overlay original and work with opacity level. Thank you for the idea and advise to step back - see how it looks after laying it to rest for two weeks or so.

I really can't make up my mind between getting the TS-E 24mm or the Nikon 14-24 adapted to Canon mount.. Does it make any sense picking the TS-E 24, instead of a tack sharp zoom with wider focal lengths?

The 14-24 is naturally more flexible. But it can't do tilt / shift, and besides, when 24mm isn't wide enough, I could always do a stitched panorama.

This is how I'm arguing with myself right now. Can someone drop a few words to help me make a final decision? :D It's kinda dumb really. I know what both lenses are capable of, but still I can't decide.

I would disagree. The TS-E 24 can be used as a 24mm (single frame), 17mm effective FOV (2 shifted frames stitched), or a 14mm effective FOV(3 shifted stitched frames).

Also - choices of landscape camera + horizontal shift, landscape camera + vertical shift, portrait camera + horizontal shift, portrait camera + vertical shift, Tilt to increase DOF with any of the above, tilt to decrease DOF with any of the above, perspective control when shooting buildings, seamless panoramas when stitching shifted shots etc

This is the most versatile lens I have owned. Its also the sharpest lens I have owned due to the large image circle (when shooting un-shifted). Still sharper in the shifted corners than my 17-40 ever was

I have the 14-24 and it's an awesome lens. If I had to choose it would be the 24 TS-E by a mile. It's sharp in the corners, it has a similar microcontrast to Zeiss, and you can shift to your hearts content. :)

Thanks guys, those two posts was just what I needed to see things clearly.

I'll go for the TS-E 24. :) I really loved to use it every time I've borrowed it. Can't wait to have my own!

Went out with a photographer mate last night to a castle ruin to get some star shots. You could see the milky way when we parked up but by the time we set up the tripods clouds rolled in and it started raining. Gutted!!

However, on the way home I captured this. A fraction of the stars from earlier but happy with it all the same. The orange glow is light pollution from the Glasgow direction.

Make sure your nuts are tight!

This is what happens when you don't check the nuts are tight and inadvertantly introduce a degree of swing which you don't want!

Yes full vertical shift but I had not got the tilt nut tight and got a bit of swing so the RHS is OOF and I did not see it till I downloaded the shots.
And thanks for your comment, much appreciated

Eddie, Troutfisher, nice shots (too bad for me, I have to go back one page to admire them).

That's York Minster I presume. I thoroughly enjoyed going up on the roof.

^ taken with 16-35II. I wish I had either the TS-E17 or 24 with me on that day.
