I very much agree. I wonder if you could could get the same thing again if you wanted to, or if this was a camera one-off?
As the reddish backlight is from the gelled flash in the fireplace, it technically might be reproducible. But if I don't use the main flash, I'd have to increase the ambient without having to push the exposure so much afterwards. Would that change the balance of the light from the gelled flash? I don't know. I may have to try... If the cat will pose again :)

I might be able to increase the power of the gelled flash, or take it out of the fireplace and use it directly as a backlight.

I was trying to focus on the falling snow, forgot there was a backround.

It was supposed to be an attempt at a different angle. It was also supposed to be in focus...

I did take one like this in focus, and that succeeded... in making me feel seasick.

Oldie but goodie that I remembered today. I was taking a pano when a pickup truck drove through the scene and got shortened.

Shutter speed was good for the crocus - not so much for the bee!

c/y Zeiss 85/2.8 is a very nice lens, but even with a hood sunlight can make it go a bit bonkers

I could post a black rectangle, and say, portrait of a huge bat. I don't know what I was thinking (well, I wasn't): no the flash won't reach that far! I'd never tried such a shot before, or my settings were way wrong. I hoped, but was not rewarded with a picture.

Y'all can imagine the black rectangle: Here it is pushed over 4 stops. I got the bat's eyes! Sort of...

You take showers in your garden?

Lovely lemons!
Thad, this is my neighbours garden/vegetable garden.
It is all a big mess compared to mine which is more modest in area and vegetables.
He always has many lemons among many other vegetables.
I will post a shot on the Zeiss Batis 18mm thread later today. Now the light is too harsh.
Cheers ! :)
