    Yes, my bad on the terminology front - have you tried the new Portra 160? It's supposed to be pretty good for portraiture and negative inversion software has got much better.

    I'm mainly using Velvia 50/Astia 100F 5x4 transparencies at the moment (I try to avoid the former during the golden hour, though, as it's a little intense), but also have Provia 100F, Portra 160 and Portra 400 (an incredible film) stock that gets used occasionally. Provia tends to turn things a little blue from my experience (it could just be my subject matter, though), so I'm surprised by the choice for portraiture but it looks very natural.

    This is the start of a new project that I'm working on based on my love for fields of Barley. I've been working on it for about three weeks now and have a reasonable number of images already - I hope to make a few more before it's harvested and then take the project up again next year. I'm working across four formats - compact digital, m4/3, full-frame digital and 5x4 large format.

    Some really great pictures in this thread! I took some pictures of flowers these week with a 100-300MM lens (don't have a dedicated macro lens) handheld. None of them are crops and are just shots out of the camera. Typical amateurish attempts I suspect!

    I'm confused, if it's not film it's a digi back? Fuji Provia 100F is a slide film?

    Very nice CAT. I like the purple against the green in the first shot, though framing it so the white thing is out of shot would be even better.

    Yes, it's a slide film as opposed to a negative film. Often referred to as a positive transparency to differentiate it from a negative.

    I know what all this stuff is, I'm confused as to why he said it wasn't film, when it was film.

    I like the second shot CAT, the backlight picks the subject out nicely in a way that looks almost studio lit. Good job.

    Re: Photo-a-day

    I caught the sunrise this morning. I also went to the zoo, where I dropped my Sigma 50-500mm and now the focus ring won't move. I'm trying to decide if it's worth spending over £100 for a fix or service. I don't think house insurance would cover it.

    My 50D also seems to have become very noisy, even at ISO200, and it has quite a few definite dead pixels that are showing up at fairly high shutter speeds, whereas they only appeared on long exposures before.

    Nice shot of the House Kid and real bummer about the kit.

    Holiday insurance cover ?

    If not then if it is only a ton to get the zoom repaired, I would, after all it's a nice lens and not cheap to replace.
    Cheers, David

    Re: Photo-a-day

    Sigma is £132 for "focus/zoom/aperture/circuit" but I don't know exactly what that means. They have a separate tariff for "Replacing groups of optics and other repairs due to shock impact, water damage, humidity, fungus or tampering etc" at £52 per hour plus parts.

    I've never been all that happy with the sharpness of the lens so it might be worth getting a service anyway. If I could find some cheap, small screwdrivers I would open it myself, but then there's the possibility that I could fix the focus issue and find that something's misaligned anyway.

    I say the focus ring won't move... the grip ring will move but the meter in the little window only moves about 5mm, if it moves at all. The rear element moves in proportion to that.

    Now I'm trying to find some kind of dismantling guide.





    I can't say I'm all that enamoured about Sydney. The atmosphere is very different to Auckland. It actually seems a lot like London. Scruffy with a few polished tourist areas, very far up itself, full of superficial, rude people. Today I saw a long queue with bouncers... for a clothes shop! I've had a hipster overload. There are hobos all over the place to an extreme level. Like making forts out of old junk right in a highstreet doorway. I'm not saying I'd rather not be here, because it's an experience I've wanted and it's actually not bad. It's just that New Zealand is better.

    (Also, AUD$25 for 24 hours of internet. )

    East Coast is supposed to be much more friendly. And Philip Island !

    Where else are you headed ?

    Re: Photo-a-day

    Back to Auckland on Monday. Dad owns a business there and goes to New Zealand three or four times a year, and I've been scrounging a flight each Summer since 2008. He was meeting someone in Sydney so decided to make a weekend of it.

    I might go up the tower today.
