Oops! I didn't see NZ's new thread posted 5 days ago and he didn't see this one posted over a week ago! Doesn't matter which one is used, I suppose, we can consolidate pics once one thread takes off.

LOL! Now how'd you guess that? Only pic 5 though, the other pics are taken at Seapoint and Dun Laoghaire, both in Co Dublin.

Looks an interesting place. Italian towns seem to be a mix of interesting architecture and being on the verge of falling down. At least they haven't gone for the glass fronts and concrete that blight most of our towns.

That's another one that's been on my wish list. Your macro photos look great!

I've had a rough few months and haven't had the will or energy to take the camera out lately. That changed a week ago when I flew to Tampa Bay to visit a friend and see my SF Giants play the Rays. As always when visiting a new ballpark, I hiked up to the very top behind home plate to grab a shot.

No, it's just the regular EF 100 f2.8.

http://www.amazon.com/Canon-100mm-Ma...376075969&sr=8-2&keywords=100+f2.8

From all reviews it's as good as the LIS lens, but about 2/3 the price. I was either using flash or a high shutter speed so IS wasn't really needed. The last photo was at 1/400, f4.5, ISO400 in daylight, the middle bee was 1/160, f16, ISO100 with ring flash.

It was quite challenging because bees are never still and there was a slight breeze so the plants moved a bit. You don't realise that even small movements are huge at that scale.

Oh, gotcha. Actually that's the one that's on my wish list - I linked to the wrong one. I don't want to pay for IS either.

I hear ya. I take photos of moths and stuff with my 300 (Canon considers it to have a macro range....debatable, but anyway). Quite difficult.

Quoting vikkyvik (Reply 15):

Yeah, but I will say there was a lot more people at that game than I expected. In fact it looks more empty than it really was because of the fisheye capturing and putting a lot of emphasis on the seats at the very top which were empty. They block off sections at the very top and don't sell those seats because views are obstructed by the lighting structure hanging from the roof.

I was bummed I couldn't stay the whole weekend and see the other two games, even though the Giants lost those games. Sundays game was the second sellout of the season for the Rays, the first being Opening Day. Good to know the Giants can draw such a large crowd wherever they go!

Quoting vikkyvik (Reply 15):
Did you get out to Joshua Tree?

No, we postponed that trip mostly because of the weather at the time. Too many clouds over the eastern deserts. I'll let you know when we figure out when we will try again, if you're interested.

For sure, and cities like Palermo and Naples also have a bit of an edge to them, which makes them all the more interesting. We could sure have taken some advice on preservation from them, but unfortunately it's too late now . . .

Some more film stuff, with a roll of Provia 100. Wasn't that impressed - thought my negative film shots came out better. But more experimentation is necessary. The DOF is just ridiculous with film, though!

Nice effect though! Surely the depth of field is more to do with lens and aperture, rather than the use of film?

Palermo is a superb town. We drove down to Sicily from London in 2011, and got the ferry from Palermo - Genova, so had a day in Palermo. We visited as many cathedrals as we could in one day, racing across, up down, all over the city in our (thankfully air conditioned) car. Very vibrant. Dirty buy characterful.

Nothing to do with film specifically, but the larger imaging area leads to a shallower DOF for equivalent view angle - same reason full-frame cameras have a shallower DOF (again, at equivalent view angle, rather than focal length).
