    Florida Sunrise I took a early morning off while in Jupiter, Florida and headed over to Coral Cove Park. This was my first time there and only had a hour, great location. 30 Second exposure with the Sony A7RII, 24mm Ziess lens on the very compact Vanguard Veo tripod, processed in Capture One.

    Lugano under sunset from Cross Peak on Caval Dossa area. Down left the cross, you can see the piramid of Monviso, a peak 280km far from where we were! I worked with a graduated ND filter to get a darker sky, then I left the colour as much as were in reality, working on contrasts to have the best effect on the ray coming behind the mountain. Last aspect I worked to are the blacks, that I made darked and deeper.

    Just before the night. Pictore took on Caval Dossa peak (1600m) just above Lugano, waiting snow that this year is coming late. I worked hard to give the idea of the true colour there were in front of us, with the night coming in the valley and the last sun of the day lighting the yellow grass of autumn.

    Late View

    From the album: Landscapes

    On our way back from Blinnenhorn we got a great view of Greis Lake just before golden hour. Walking with no track in wilderness is one of the most incredible experience, and this kind of landscape is the reason we explore. I worked hard on colors, to get the best balance between saturation and contrasts.

  8. From the album: Landscapes

    An hiker make a picture of Greis Lake, with Greis Glacier and Bleinnenhorn (3374m) on the back. The light was just perfect with great contrasts of coulor all around the picture. I also loved the moment for the great proportion, with the long cloud that creates a circle that go to the mountain, than to the long glacier, to the hiker and at the end back to the sky. I tried to desaturate a bit the colors to get a deeper effect on all the picture.

  9. From the album: Landscapes

    The very wild landscape of Greispass was changed by the dam and the wind turbine. I included these anthropic elements in the composition. Usually people try to avoid everything made by man in landscape photography, but we are part of the world. I also tried my best in contrasts to give the deep effect of the picture and to underline the lines on the right mountain.

    Falling Sun

    From the album: Landscapes

    We were climbing Denti della Vecchia near Lugano when a sublime scenary appears to us, with a orange sun hitting the autumn trees. Mountains on the back are Alps, with Monte Rosa, second peak in europe. I worked hard with ND graduated filter in postproduction, adding nothing to saturation. All the colours seen are as appeared to our eyes.

  11. 342/5000 Hi all Finally I was able to try my Batis 18, the place was not good, the light was not there and there were many people, perfect, the ideal place: D I'm really happy with the result, I shot in jpg with the color profile in black and white. The photos were resized and have a minimum crop. I used the A6300, tomorrow I will try it on the A7R3

  13. Hello Batis 18mm owners and wide angle lens experts Recently I bought this great wide angle lens but was quite disappointed when I checked my first pictures shot with a Sony Alpha 7 II as the lens produced some really weird dots above the sun with aperture 22 (see attached picture). My 10-20mm APS-C wide angle lens on the Sony Alpha 77 produced a much better sun star for a third of the price... ☹️ Did anyone experience the same issue or knows of that issue with the Batis 18mm? Thanks in advance for your feedback and advice, Andreas
  14. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-cBAICAiI74 Hi everyone, I have a Sony Zeiss lens (SAL50F14Z) that wobbles very badly. I tried to send it to Sony for repair, but the Sony repair center just sent it back and claimed that the wobble is *normal*. I personally do not believe it is normal, as I don't recall having this wobble before, and my other Sony Zeiss lens doesn't have that. Could the community give any recommendation what I should do? If this is really normal, then it's a big design flaw from Sony!

  16. I just recently bought a Sony Zeiss 35mm f1.4. Yes it big and heavy but I got work to pay for me buying a used one. Every time I power on the camera (A7ii), it sounds like a motor expanding and then relaxing the aperture. Is this normal? Other than that, it works just fine and pics a crisp as expected. The sound/motor does not persist during operation. ALSO: Because I bought that lens on a whim I am wanting to know its capabilities in general. I just came over to Sony mirrorless and got the A7ii used which came with the Zeiss 35mm 2.8. Love the combo because its so small. Here are the types of photos I want to take seriously: landscape, environmental portraits (mainly rock climbing and mountaineering - so a need to have good clarity on the subject and also show their surroundings, and traditional portraits. The reason I bought the 35mm f1.4 is that it is supposed to be "the best e-mount lens available". Wouldn't want to take the risk if it were my own money so took advantage of the offer. Now I am in a strange predicament. Because I'm always climbing, do I just stick with the 35 2.8 and get a portrait lens, or keep both? Is the image quality that much different? I guess my other option would be to trade the 35mm f1.4 for a great portrait lens. If I go that route, what should I choose?
  17. I visited a small and ancient village in China that was built entirely on water and used to be a trading hotspot. The haze on that day added a very special atmosphere. This shot is based on multiple exposures that were stitched together in Lightroom. My camera was a Sony A7r ii and a Zeiss Otus 55mm. I hope enjoy looking at it.
  18. Hey all, made some pictures with today with my 45mm Contax lens and Techart adapter and this weird ring started appearing. It's not really vignetting in the way that I am familiar - it does not happen with my 55mm 1.8 or the 90mm Zeiss Sonnar mounted on the same adapter, so I'm inclined to think it's lens specific but not sure. I hadn't noticed this in previous use with this lens, and I don't know what could have changed it. It happens at all shutter speeds with efcs turned on and off and it gets a little more pronounced with a smaller f stop as you would expect things to come in to sharper focus. I tried removing the lens hood and UV filter just in case that was somehow showing up even though it never did on the film camera - but that didn't change anything. I'm aware it could be some bizarre refraction issue or something given the beach scene, but it happened last night and this morning on the beach and again not with the other lenses. It's weird.... Any thoughts appreciated.
  19. Dear fellow Sony users, here are a couple of shots from my recent trip to the German north. I shot with my go-to Zeiss 35/1.4 and my old Canon 70-200/4.0 and a cheap-o EF to E adapter. Enjoy - Critique is welcome! konzty A7II with Zeiss 35/1.4 @ 1/5 @ f14 @ ISO100 A7II with Zeiss 35/1.4 @ 1/100 @ f11 @ ISO100 A7II with Zeiss 35/1.4 @ 1/20 @ f13 @ ISO100

    Yesterday I tried one glorious vintage lens: Carl Zeiss Jena Biotar 75mm f/1.5 (1953, M42, red "Т"), see what I have done with it. Camera: Sony a7rII, always wide open.

  23. Hey folks, Since our last photo set was so popular Hilary decided to come back to the studio to shoot another one. We did it a little different this time, no strobes. The A7R II obviously performed admirably at the higher ISO settings we used for these fun shots. I hope you enjoy. Full Gallery: Hilary Riley Session Two (possibly NSFW depending upon where you work)
  24. Hey folks, I am shooting Hilary again in the studio (this is being posted at 5:45pm EST time on Tuesday Jan 12th) and this is going to be a part of my Review of the 85mm Zeiss Batis Lens. If you want to follow me on Periscope to watch the shoot when I got live, add me @kyleandrewphoto to watch through the app, or click here to watch live on the web (although the app will inform you exactly when I go online and Live if you follow me and set it to do so). This picture was taken a few moments ago:
