Re: East midlands meet??

Right I've managed to locate, two BLM-1's and two Panasonic batteries, so am all ready for tomorrow.

I've just realised that I also have my son tomorrow too, I hope it will be ok if he comes along?

He's going to use my Panasonic DMC-L1 and fancies using my 50-200 zoom on it!

Why do we prefer zooms when we are young and then seem to favour wider and wider angle lenses as we grow older?

Re: East midlands meet??

Nice to meet everyone - well done to those who managed to get their images on here so quickly, and special thanks to Homer for organising it. I was using the ND grads I recently bought for the first time today and the effects looked pretty good on the camera LCD - not so good when I got them on the computer. I'd doubled up the filters to darken the sky and it seems to have badly affected the autofocus especially on the 50-200. Is this usual does anyone know? Anyway I've managed to salvage a couple of shot and they are duly attached.

Sorted out a few more from yesterday's meet - converted to b&w. Any comments on anything I post would be welcomed.

I love the last B&W of the engine coming under the bridge, that's lovely timing!

Re: East midlands meet??

I am very sorry I missed most of you. I managed to go the the wrong Station and it was 2.00pm before I had released my mistake.

However I have posted some of my efforts anyway.




I have posted a wider selection in an Album.

Patchwork

I love the colour tone on your images. Was that the filters or was that achieved by another way?

Sorry we didn't have longer to talk on Saturday - hope the event at Crich was good. Colour tones? - as I mentioned it was my first go with grad ND filters and sadly they seem to have affected the colours. I had to warm all of the images in post processing. Nice album btw - I really like your first one of the luggage with the somewhat bored signalman oof in the signalbox window.

Re: East midlands meet??

Finally got round to sorting some shots from the meet. Apologies for taking so long, got distracted by the football. I really enjoyed the day and the company.
Some great and varied shots posted already, hope mine are as good.










There's a few more in the gallery.

Hi Ewan - like the sepia treatment of the canteen- was that the handheld shot at ISO 800? What happened to the rusty shed shots you took? Good to talk with you on Saturday and I hope we can all meet up again in the future. I expect for the next month your mind will be on football - got your ticket yet?
