Frost II

This is a few months old, however it could have been taken just a few days ago, as we had frost and snow in April due to air flowing from to Germany from the polar region. Sometimes you had to look twice to see whether a tree was either full of cherry blossoms or of snow.

Venetian Patio

When I was in Venice I had the impression that the many hidden patios are the most exciting places. So many secret places. Often you just can imagine what beautiful places are hidden behind locked doors.

Slightly processed with Color Efex Pro & Lightroom.

Yeah sure! Sony advocate Jason "I-made-the-switch-from-Nikon-to-Sony-Video" Lanier had his camera bag run over by a truck.

And guess what? The only gear that suffered was a Canon 85mm f/1.2 lens (4:40), while non of the latest native Sony FE-Lenses and Sony cameras in his bag got a single scratch. Then he continues to elaborate what long list of cool Sony gear he has in his bag and at 5:50 he tells you in detail what no longer works with the now broken Canon lens.

A few questions remain:
- Why does he still has a Canon lens in his bag, when he has all the cool native lens available? Even when everyone should know that despite the advances, the metabone adapters are still painfully slow with focusing?
- Even more: He made the switch from Nikon and the only non Sony gear he has is a Canon lens?
- A truck runs over a bag and hits a single lens? Which is the only non-Sony one? Really?
- He had someone filming all the time (sure, he is always filming his shootings, right?), but there is neither a video of the car running over it (but he has a still capture from the claimed video - 1:58) nor a picture that shows all the lenses and cameras "spread all down the hill" (2:11). Yeah, sure. It's more important to tell how broken the Canon lens is and what kind of Sony gear he has.
- And finally: He hopes that the attention will assist the police to apprehend this guy. However he knows the license plate. WTF??? The Police in the U.S. cannot look up the owner of a truck from a given license plate???

Nice try, Jason. At least you got this Sony and self advertisement posted on +PetaPixel.
Photographer Jason Lanier says he was doing a photo shoot at a park in Texas when a man drove his truck over his camera gear bag that contained tens of tho

Lienz Dolomites | Carinthia | Austrian Alps

The Lienz Dolomites are a small mountain range in the south of Austria separated in equal parts into the states of Carinthia and East Tyrol. Though it carries the name "Dolomites" it is generally not counted among the regular Dolomites Groups, a fate also shared by the Brenta Dolomites. Both groups differ geologically from the rest of the Dolomites but the main reason for considering them a world apart is the respective location far from the heart of the mountain group. While Brenta is located on the far (western) side of the Etsch/Adige valley, the Lienz Dolomites are located to the north of the Pustertal and Lesachtal Valleys with a couple of mountain ranges in between.

I am starting to love Silver Efex Pro. The processing workflow with the control points is very nice and the rendered results somehow have a cleaner feel than the outputs from the Lightroom only processing flows. But that might be a subjective impression.

Vignetting Lession in Venice

A panorama of long exposures uploaded in full resolution, so zoom in (works only with the classic G+ on desktops). Well you will quickly notice the glitches here, the dark vertical shadows that repeat over the image multiple times. So I am uploading this image as a warning should you want to create long exposure panoramas as well.

What happened? Well, I have a protector filter on my 24-105. Usually not a problem at 24mm. But I was too lazy, did not unscrew the protector, but screwed the ND filter on top of the protector and this resulted in some heavy vignetting that Lightroom was not able to correct as this kind of vignetting is not part of the lens profile. Even Photoshop was unable to remove this, when stitching the exposures to a panorama, although I told it to take care of it.

So next time I will either zoom in a bit to avoid the vignetting or take more care to remove the protector glass first. For this shot it's too late :-(

Lession learned.

Die Schiebefilter nehmen mir zuviel Platz in der Tasche weg. Da bin ich mit dem Stack Cap Container sehr zufrieden (eigentlich nur zwei Schraubdeckel für beide Seiten des Filters mit beliebig vielen Filtern dazwischen). Und wie Du schon sagtest.... seitlicher Lichteinfall ist bei den Schiebefiltern ein großes Problem, das die Schraubfilter nicht haben. Klar, es ist ein elendiges Gefummel und ich kann keine teuren Filter wie die von Lee nutzen. Dafür nutze ich die dann aber eben doch zu selten und nur gelegentlich. Da reichen mir die Filter von Haida aus.

Just unboxed...

Today the price I won at the +Drink and Click™​ January challenge arrived. Originally the price was an ebook by +Rocky Nook​. However after some minor issue +Rocky Nook​ offered to send me the printed book instead. THANKS SO MUCH! Holding this book in my hands makes a huuuuuuge difference.

I just had a few minutes to run over the pages yet, but the picture inside are awesome and the text passages I've started to read are very promising. Bruce Barnbaum has a different, but very interesting style and I am looking forward to all the things that I can learn from him.

Can't wait to spend more time with this book. Curious? Here are more details about the book: http://www.rockynook.com/shop/photography/the-art-of-photography/

Many thanks to
+Rocky Nook​ for sponsoring the price and extra thanks for sending me the print book all over the ocean at no cost instead.
+Juan Gonzalez​ for realizing the monthly +Drink and Click™​ events and organizing all those monthly prices.
+Dirk Müller​ and +Dominik Honerboom​ without who the +Drink and Click™ Stuttgart, Germany​ chapter wouldn't exist at all.

Looking forward to the next +Drink and Click™​ event.

Heart Bench

When I saw this I couldn't help, but think of +Rainer M. Ritz s +Bench Saturday.

Processed with Analog Efex Pro. Normally I do not like such Instagram style looks. However in this case I wanted to create a "Sissi-esque" look like in this old sentimental movies (Heimatfilm).

Nice to see people appreciating my work.

Not so nice seeing them cropping away my watermark and posting it elsewhere: https://www.instagram.com/p/BD1zvycBA9G/?taken-by=jcharles2015

Now let's see how long Instagram needs to process my DMCA complaint.

UPDATE: +Instagram responded after a couple of hours. Thank you, guys.
