    You've got hardware!

    Your moon pictures: My moons almost always get overexposed. Note to self: Must start using spot mode. And some telephoto lens. Start saving now.

    The winter pictures are really nice. Around here we have a thunderstorm right now: nothing spectacular, just wet.

    The moon is spectacularly hard to shoot, took me about 30 shots to get that one... all manual. I would guess a real correction would be close to -2EV to get the moon right. The meter on my sony often overexposes a bit, but is at least consistently overoptimistic & so I can set the shutter speed to suit. The continuous aperture on the lens is a real help when the choice between manual shutter speeds is too wide.

    Often I use the meter as a rough guide to get me in range & then take multiple exposures @ different speeds to look at later in optics pro. always best to underexpose, as with raw manipulation there is a huge range of exposure latitude but of course no room for correction in overexposure clipping.

    Also, there is a lot of digital processing to finesse the final image. RAW noise reduction, exposure, lens & sensor corrections with Dx0 Optics Pro, exposure & further color in Photoshop etc. One thing to note, the large format lenses are so superb ( and inexpensive ) that no chromatic aberration correction or sharpening is used & this makes a huge difference in the final image tones.

    A similar setup would be a sinar p combined with a fujifilm EX-1 with a Schneider APO Symmar MC. This would produce spectacular results for about $1200 or slightly less than a fast f2.8 dslr telephoto :) crap for photographing animals or racing cars, though... unless one did tilt-shift video :)

    I will probably get a fujifilm xe-1 or perhaps an x-pro2 when it arrives. the x series are perhaps the best affordable cameras yet. their color & clarity are amazing. Only the Nikon D800E & medium format backs are better...

    For me it is not about tool you can puchase to catch what catches your eye first that count. But what you can take - and present to others - with what you have: basicaly an eye and an inclination, a taste if you wll. Fuck the technology that will chained you untill you can use it the way they program you to use it!

    Altough, as much I kinda love your environment as you seem to do, I kinda feel not close to the way you show it.

    This is strongly said, I know, but for you forseti, I can speak my mind out.

    Wanna see what I did with a very old scanner, to emphasis my point?

    Not to say that I did better but that you don't really share; here you are showing...

    i have to ask, why do you think, your posts are removed/deleted here?
    If so, that's clearly not done in my sense.
    Or did you send spam or BS?

    i wish i'd..... never, ever, engaged myself in here, i mean if i hadn't, now i wouldn't feel "morally" obliged to anybody here any apologies or anything, call me deprived :)

    i haven't, didn't read much Bloch myself (lucky you, btw, else you'd'v probably had yet another set/string of robotic mumblings here :) nor Marx himself in fact but, and i want/have to make it completely clear now, regardless of whether real marxizm ever has anything to do with all this or not and whether i'm barking at the wrong tree (i do hope so! btw), if religion(s) and faith it-self are not discerned/discriminated in there then i'm not and never been one, thanks (marxist that is) .

    so.. "simple"..

    i *like* i do to think for myself it was out of.. humanism, or something, that i got there, no selfishness any kind included, but..

    worse, for me, is yet to come, still,

    at some point here i even dared tell, yea, "god" "what to do."

    heck, i even dared what "he" can/'t do.

    so, again, to make it clear - i, even as marxist, can't be sure, can't (dis)prove, to say the least, that something couldn't originate even "out of thin air" (although i'd tried to dodge it "verbally" at the time);
    abruptly, if they "can" (dis)prove "the last things" with *certainty*, i'm not one of them (marxists)

    no atonement intended..

    even if it never happens to me, specifically..


    come what may


    we are still...





    for "normal creatures" here, a fragment of the line from yea Kapital- go your own way... :)

    for "nuts" if any - don't catch at this, real thing may be even scarier :)

    "out" of space and time

    to paraphrase, with a vengance - out of space and time !!!

    its your real experience(es) to me.

    and vice versa :)

    "quantum physics" is too short imho, being too much "human" :)

    i'll need to bless them cumming one more time here.

    its not that i have converted in any way ;)

    rather its my understanding of others that may be changing, not for the better.

    though as it seems from your ripe responses here you are like few of them per tu with the last things of man this is absolutely unnecessary, my quotes all around notwithstanding :),
    let's clear up one thing, for posterity:

    to me a potential miracle out of thin air will not contradict any instances in reality that contains both those instances and that miracle.
    the problem, not for you of course, is to know what all reality is, can be,
    and about

    borrowing your language,
    its kind of like using a rubber properly and you still make that mare a baby
    and you know for sure the rubber hadn't popped or cracked anyhow
    you may see only Providence in all that afterwords
    others may see Providence and say the bad texture
    anyway of course the effect is same - the foal is on the way
    but the difference is striking

    end of history

    but for some reason and being a fool myself as i am i may have wrongly deduced that somebody here may need that kind of "help" from me, you know this is/used to be "for friends"..

    now the damage if any is done
    but now i am happy to see or believe that your doing well, without that kind of my "assistance" to you..

    enough from me really

in fact these guys are probably right a great deal.. (23/08/13 15:00:52) Reply
    being somewhat "offendable" myself i'm apt to miss the real point easily


    just.. what you didn't know, normally, is i too wanted myself to stop it (say i couldn't till some point) ..

    Just exceptional.

    The one with all the blue sky in it, and a bit of the trees.
    A beautiful blue like i never saw before.

    And the little bird on the roof. Beyond exceptional. Capturing loneliness is a trick. Yet this little bird is quite happy to be alone. Depth of focus. Yes.
    Depth of focus...

    The snow on the logs. At twilight. Or is it dawn? A lonely place again. But a party behind closed doors? Who would know? Mystery is the key here.

    Just for the record. A most beautiful shot. If this was porn, it would be the money shot. Depth of focus, depth of field, both are represented here. And a bit more that words can not say. Probably the most accomplished of all. A masterpiece in its own right.

    And finally, you leave us with, the +forseti moon.

    You have outdone yourself here, meister.

    I have no more words, other than the few I have given.


    with love.

    I like it.

    I can get a kind of discourse here that can be found no where else.

    And no matter how much of myself I give, it shall always be repaid one way or another.

    I can tell my mother before I die that my time on earth was not wasted.

    It's good to be alive and feel the flow of others...
