    Great photos in this thread! I'm without lens at the moment and it sucks. These are just a few I keep on the phone...

    Gents - looking for some thoughts on tripods.

    Looking to invest in a versatile unit that could work for travel.

    I'm considering the Brian model from 3 Legged Thing.

    Any thoughts? Suggestions?

    Crepuscular rays. Love 'em.

    Trini, that looks like a helluva tripod. I'm trying to find something similar but I need something with a self leveling center column for fast setups on lousy terrain.

    If you're in the US, consider the Really Right Stuff TQC-14. The Gitzo GT1542T with an Arca-Swiss P0 head also works great.

    I use RRS plates and clamps on a P0 with Gitzo 1227 legs and Markins hub. It's okay, and kind of lives in the no man's land between portability and steadiness but I've had bits and pieces of my tripod for almost 20 years now, and made do with it. If I did it again, I'd get one of the two pods above and a much beefier main tripod, probably an RRS TVC-34L.

    A few from my trip visiting family in asia a few months ago. I usually don't do any landscape / street snaps, but I have to admit, it was pretty fun.

    Tried to make some arty shots to help sell my camera. Forgot to set EC to 0, hence the blown out highlights.

    Haven't been taking any pictures since months. Forced my lazy ass outside today to go for a walk around sundown.

    Thanks A Y.

    Ok, I've an appointment for night photography today but we couldn't come up with anything to shoot (without driving 1 hour) so I went to the city to shoot some portraits with a friend.

    I've also shot some frames with the Mamiya on Ilford FP4 but don't know yet when I'll finally manage to get the film full.

    PS: Is there actually any way to prevent Flickr from oversharpening everything you upload?

    I think they apply sharpening whenever they downsize from the original picture.

    I like how the tower is reflecting in the puddle in the first shot. Very nice.

    Got my Ilford FP4 from the lab back. Actually rather satisfied with the result, especially as they've only charged 5€.

    But it's super tough to nail focus at f/1.9 with a 645 camera. I'm surprised that actually most exposures were good (enough), looks like the lightmeter app for Android is not too bad.
