First sight of the juvenile kite, tentatively hopping between branches.

125 years old and still in use, the 36 inch telescope at the James Lick Observatory on top of Mt Hamilton California. The whole thing looks like it came right out of a Jules Verne novel.

I'm going to have fun with this TS lens this summer in Chicago and Boston. It's insanely sharp and it's surprisingly easy to square up buildings. This was handheld, manual focus (of course). This is Booth Library at EIU where Wifey works. I was maybe 35-40 ft from the building.

Speaking of TS lenses, Mark I know you saw this on POTN but for the Bimmerpost crowd, I shot this 2 nights ago with the TS-E 17. I was going for the artistic look and continue to learn and play with the Tilt function...

I've been tempted by this and the 17mm, mainly for the full-frame sharpness allowed by the extra large image circle. I guess that I should borrow one from CPS to try for myself. I'm wondering if my landscapes would be even sharper using one of these. Of course, I want to compare images post-DLO, since I use Digital Lens Optimization to correct all my images. The uncorrected performance is supposed to be close to unmatched.

I'm stunned by the sharpness. You can *almost* pull a 200% crop out of the center. As a straight-forward 24mm lens, there may be lens corrections to be made. But once you start tilting and shifting, any automated corrections will be useless. You pretty much have to go manual. I over-compensated with that shot of the library and had to "push" the building back some. A 100% crop of that shot shows the very fine detail around the window frames. It really is amazing. And I'm surprised how easy it is to correct for converging verticals. As you turn the knob, you see the building straighten out. It's pretty cool.

That's my goal, to get into tilt and shift at the same time. And some shifted panos. Also some serious deep DOF shots. There's a kid named Jordan Marsh over on POTN that is an absolute wizard with the TS lenses (and lots of other glass). His landscapes are gallery worthy stuff.

I got the 17mm ts at Christmas and have hardly used it. I just haven't had time to learn the thing yet. I hope to take it into San Francisco soon.

This week, I'm all alone at home, and working 10 hour days, so I made a giant pot of chili for dinner all week. How sad
