I'll be honest...I was not overly impressed by the inside. Remember, this is a rather old plantation, so no kitchen, no bathrooms just dining rooms, living areas and bedrooms.

While the front view was cool...the back view I would consider majestic. I would suggest skipping the 2 hour wait to get into the house, and spend it with the view from the back!

That is a sweet view. The original GW had it good, eh?

Nice images, SV.

soooooooooo, wife told me about photojojo or whatever that website is called and made me "look around".

we already have the macro and wide angle lenses for our iPhone so i decided to spend $50 and get the macro and wide angle adaprter for my 24-70 and 70-200.

here is the macro. works "ok" because it's pretty much just a piece of glass attached to the actual lens. nothing fancy, but i think it does ok.

i've spent $50 on worse things, HAHAHA !!!!

watchya'll think. and yes, i used the word "watchya'll"...........

I am a thinkin' that ther lens you went anda bought yerself has a bit of ther CA and I betcha that it'll lookie a bit better in black and white.

Dof does really look thin and I didn't do an EXIF for your Fstop so I think if you can get some more DOF it will be fine for $50 as long as it is B/W or you PP the CA out.


OOH just waiting for 5 more posts!!!

that's the second time someone has asked me that on one of my pictures, HAHA !!!!!

i DO NOT, for the life of me, fake any sort of blur - that's amateur and gross.

if you fake blur, you need to find another hobby

i did not purchase superior glass to fake any blur


here's the watch:
Camera: Nikon D700
Lens: 24-70 mm f/2.8
Shot at 38 mm (35mm film equiv: same)
Exposure: Manual exposure, 1/350 sec, f/2.8, ISO 200
Flash: none

here's the ring:
Camera: Nikon D700
Lens: 24-70 mm f/2.8
Shot at 42 mm (35mm film equiv: same)
Exposure: Manual exposure, 1/125 sec, f/4, ISO 200
Flash: none

haha Jeff... sadly I have no comeback right now. I must be off my game

On a separate note, that bokeh on the watch looked off to me Litos. I think it's because it's blurry on all 4 sides of the watch's face. That's what is throwing me off.

probably has something to do that it's not a 100% dedicated macro lens.

it's just a piece of glass that screws onto the 24-70.
