Is that a light at the end of the tunnel? (or just a train coming the other way...)

Joeseph,

If the above is a subtle comment aimed generally at that group of often obsessive hunters that call themselves photographers, who usually carry a miniature tunnel and device to record what can be seen by looking through that tunnel at any given time, then I would suggest you have done very well.

In general I do actually really like the soft pastel natural colours and layout of the scene. It is to my mind, an attractive photo yet informative, the trees, lines, wires are all there, as in real life.

The softish light also does it's part in making the scene more pleasing and allows us to look without being over whelmed, or our eyes getting tired.

Four and a half out of five, after all, one can never bestow the perfect score, can they.

So ends my burst of verbal diarrhea. You may clap!:-P

Thanks - you're very kind! :lol:

Of the many times I'd driven over this particular crossing at around 100km/hr and thought "I must stop & take a photograph or two" this was the only time I'd actually done it.
Couple of times I've been through that way late afternoon where the foreground is in shadow & light thru the tunnel very bright but the other week it was average both sides.
Still, worth stopping for - I might do it again on Friday.

^nice... looks a tad dark on my monitor but that may have been how it was?

Silly question time - my 100-400mm lens barrel has seized solid (again: it did this in 2009 and cost $750 at the time to get fixed)

given it does get a fair bit of useage with kids football, aircraft etc. would it be sensible to repair it again as it's now probably 14 years old? - presumably at somewhat higher cost than last time.

They appear to be worth about $1400 on trademe for one in good nick, but if I were to spend that sort of money I'd probably be better getting a version II methinks...

any thoughts?

I like #2, the lines lead you out to infinity, a place where I think I would like to be. Great contrasts, the blues and the whites play with one another.

#1 is good too, I just like #2 better. I have been fishing off that rock lots of times, in the days when you went on at low tide, and remained marooned until low tide. I have stood there hanging on to my rod, watching a largish shark, give me the glad eye and circle around it a number of times looking for a way up. No fish around after that. :(

Some really nice photography making it's way into this thread. It's interesting how much we have all grown as photographers

If you can afford a new one, then it seems like a logical choice, then repair the old one and sell it.

Could be a bit dark, looking at it again

100-400 I you are happy with it then fix it, is the version 2 better IQ? ……… was going to ask to borrow glad I didn't :)

Was going to buy my siggy 150-600 second hand at ProGear but it had sold. So my wife got a dyson vacuum cleaner instead..... happy wife happy life


Moppie we look forward to seeing some of your work soon. Yes we have all changed a lot in last 10-15 yrs.

I'm happy with it apart from the reliability factor (and it's now probably not long before it is end-of-life for servicing)

The ver 2 is supposed to be better by quote a lot - of course more expensive too. Happy for you to borrow it but it's effectively a 400mm f/5.6 prime unless I get it fixed.
Still job-hunting currently so won't do anything till that particular issue gets sorted.

I had thought about this

Tamron 100-400

http://www.tamron.jp/e​n/product/lenses/a035.​html (external link)

yea it's 6.3 at the long end so I guess it depends on what you plan to use it for

I know sometimes I need something with a bit more reach. But since it's a hobby I don't want to spend that much.

I would like more AF points too as I don't care about more mpx, that's why I was thinking of a 2nd hand mk3.

But I am building a house so it's on hold for a little bit.
