    My wife and I played local tourists at Ardenwood historic farm at Fremont, California.

    I used a Tokina AT-X 50-250mm f/4-5.6 on 5N for the tele end, also tried my new Nikon D600 with the kit lens. Below are some NEX shots.

    Flare, but I like the effect.

    Very happy with this lens, it has quickly become my favorite adapted tele-zoom in good light. I'll add a post in the Sample Image Archive.

    The picasa albums:
    Ardenwood MF
    Ardenwood AF (non-NEX)

    Cheers!

    Great pics! I'm jealous of all the color, everything is rather drab here in New England except for the fresh coat of snow that's already half melted and dirty.

    The feather detail in that peacock shot is amazing.

    Nice!
    I especially like number 7. The sheep on the meadow. Great colors, Vivvid?

    I always enjoy being a tourist, even when I am not far from home! I quite like the shot of the "horse shoe graveyard".

    Was shot RAW, then an "Auto Tone" in LR (actually reduced a bit contrast). It was against the sunshine, so with flare and dramatic.
