    I haven't posted one of these anywhere for quite some time. Not because I don't like narking on myself, I just haven't done any lately. Ah, but I have ended my streak so I offer the following for your amusement.

    Pic title is: Why you should really use the EVF to frame shots instead of the LCD when it's incredibly bright and the sun is shining directly on the LCD screen.

    Nice finger, eh? :cool:

    Shot with the CV15 @f/22 because I was trying vainly to smooth out the water and somebody walked off and left the Vari-ND filter sitting on the desk at home.

    A bit long, this title for the pic, don't you think? ;)

    And yes, I hate composing through the display outside, but on my NEX-5 there's simply no other option ...

    True, but it's much more descriptive than "I fooked up!" ;)

    Yeah, really. LOL

    That lens is so short you really have to pay attention to what you're doing. Obviously. ;)

    Seems like a fairly easy crop.

    Your image is nothing that a little bit of post production could not fix.

    True Dave, it is easily cropped. I posted it more as a warning for those using rangefinder lenses to be careful. It's been a really long time since I had to worry about getting my fingers in a shot. Last time I used a rangefinder camera was…. uh…. nevermind. :)
