Great photo! Post some more?
Some people will tell you the dolphins weren't playing on Sunday.From what I saw, I agree. The only one I saw, at another beach, seemed to be looking for a seafood restaurant in a very focused way. I know that feeling.
Now I want to go to Bigelow's.
Sometimes you feel like a crab, sometimes you don't.
Thanks, JP.This is perhaps the most iconic scene along the entire California coastline. I'm not sure how that is determined, but the people who know about such things seem to agree. It could be that a lot of car commercials are filmed here and the companies that pay for car commercials often expect to see iconic things in them.The small bridge at the left, Bixby Bridge (which is quite a large bridge when you're close to it), would be our most-photographed bridge, if it weren't for the orange one farther up the coast.
I guess the line of the road tells a nice story plus the cliffs & rocks are dramatic. I've seen people overlay Fibonacci spirals on photos and never quite bought it.What camera are you currently using? I've recently upgraded to the Sony A6000, just in time for them to release the A6300!
I'm still using Panasonic micro 4/3 cameras - my current one is about half the size of the first (which was half the size of a DSLR). The cameras keep shrinking, but somehow the image quality gets better.If I were starting from scratch today, I think I'd choose the Sony, too, but I already had some m4/3 lenses, so decided to stay put. In most cases, I think you're better off buying the old model after they release the new one. The new features seldom warrant the cost difference.
The Panasonic's nice little camera - a friend's just bought one. The A6000 was on a Black Friday discount so I went for it, and not in much of a rush to upgrade. The one thing that might swing it is if it has significantly improved auto-focus in adapted lenses. There's not really a long zoom e-mount lens and I have a Canon 70-300 but the Commlite adapter hunts for seconds so isn't really usable except in manual focus mode.
Some autofocus woes aren't the fault of the lens make, but of the focal length itself. It's harder finding focus with longer lenses. Most cameras have a menu item that lets you limit focus range to longer distances, which applies most of the time with a long lens. Some lenses (possibly the Canon) have a dedicated switch for this on the lens barrel.Another thing to try is to turn off all the autofocus points except the one in the middle of the field, and to focus there, hold focus with a half-press of the shutter button, and recompose for the shot.Being very old school and set in my ways, that's what I do. And you eliminate another reason for wanting to upgrade to the a6300.
I like the use of empty blue space in your post.And the superb placement of commas.Quite ethereal.
Thanks, Tillerman. For many years, empty blue space went largely unnoticed by web page designers and astronomers.But recently it was discovered that the ideas in some blogs are so powerful, the very words that express them cannot escape the blog and they appear to readers as empty blue space.This could explain why my inbox is always full.And oh, it's not ethereal, it's Helvetica.
That's a fine photo there, sir. Please post more!
Thank you.I understand that Adobe is adopting a new corporate slogan:"You push the button, we do the rest."
