    A rose by any other picture would not look as sweet

    Sorry for the crappy phone pic, but... this is the biggest parking fail I have personally seen in a long time....

    The white car, is literally sticking three feet out into the road.

    :banghead: :slap:


    It was there when I arrived, and still there when I left. This is also in a very large shopping mall parking lot.

    Well, figured it's time to join. Got my DSLR last July. The intent was to have a good camera to replace my Fujifilm S8100fd to take decent photos of my aquariums, seeing as I have had an aquarium project coming up for quite some time I have not even photographed much of my current ones. But here's to the introduction anyway.

    I've got a Sony a290, 18-55mm kit lens. After that I managed to get hold of some old gear from my father and grandfather. This added about 6 flashes, a 50mm Minolta MD f1.7, 28mm Vivitar MD f2.8, 28mm Unitax FD f2.8, 35mm Canon FD f3.5, 70-210mm Vivitar MD f4.5 Macro Zoom, 28-200mm Vivitar FD f3.5/5.3 all of these being old full-frame lenses. The zooms unfortunately have haze and the result from them isn't quite pleasing, the other however are excellent.

    Apart from that I've got a Minolta X-300, various assortment of macro extension tubes, macro close up kits, tripods and so on.

    Here's a link to some of my stuff: Photos here!

    Some of the photo details will not be available (such as aperture on some picutres) as they were taken with the older lenses, so it will register as f1. Some of the images have been heavily edited and I understand there will be some head bashing incoming because of that.

    So I went to see "The Hobbit" the other day and at the theater, they had these ticket arcade machines (gimmicky games wherein you win tickets mostly by luck). I played once and by good luck, got just about the highest amount you could get from that one machine, and so I went ahead and got as many "Domo's" as I could :laugh:. So I made this shot for fun:

    I had two more, but they were duplicates of the bling and nerdy ones.

    :roll:

    So, I have a D5100 and kit, and I'm looking for a solid Leather case to handle it, a couple of lenses, and the extras. Not really looking to ever go Full Frame, so something like the Kata 3N1 or the Camps Bay is too much for me (not that either are leather ;) ) . I found this made of some serious leather, and I think the medium would handle my gear, and for the quality (and a 100 year warranty), I'm ok with the price tag, but not sure that's the best bang for the buck at the price. Anyone have any bags they're fond of, or seen around? thanks *cheers* :toast:

    By the way, PhotoJojo is evil...:banghead:

    I've been working on Astrophotography lately. I have an adapter to mount my camera onto my telescope and take pictures. It's definitely not easy but here's a few pictures of what I've been working on. :toast:

    Possible to get a higher res version of that nebula? That's a great shot. :toast:

    Would make a great wallpaper and/or background for my ps3.

    Looking forward to joining. I never knew there was a photography community on TPU considering this is a tech forum :p but there is a thread about cars so its not a huge surprise, and I also ran across a hardware close up pics thread.

    Here's a photo of the Toronto CN Tower
    Taken with a Canon 7D with a 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM
    @ f/2.8 1/320sec. ISO-200 focal length 17mm

    [​IMG]

    Here's a film Pentax camera that I borrowed from school
    Shot with a Canon 550D/Rebel t2i/Kiss X4 with a Sigma 75-300mm f/4
    @f/5 1/200sec. ISO-100 focal length 190mm

    OOOOOOH

    How long did you have to expose that for?

    I always have thought about getting an adapter to where you could mount a DSLR on a spotting scope since often they're good optics and are affordable.

    I was just thinking if there was no photography related threads on TPU. To my surprise... :D

    Count me in!

    This is not my absolute favorite but one of them. This was taken in Peniche, Portugal.
