    I thought that was what cruiser axes were for. At any rate, in this semitropical ecosystem I'd think I'd ask the lederhosen-clad gents to stay downwind...

    Ha, plenty of first time wading "boots" consisted of a pair of Chucks with carpet glued to the soles. At any rate, I've come to the conclusion that I'm not quite so burly as the New Zealanders and...

    Re: Large Format Landscapes

    That's a wonderful photo--waterfalls don't usually hold much in the way of intrinsic interest for me, but just the light on the trees in the upper frame is special.

    Excellent work--this one and Voigtlander #2 are my favorites so far...very much like the "quartering" approach, and the dappled light in the center of the frame is special indeed.

    I would doubt that would be the case--you'd probably be best off looking for lenses with filter rings 41.5mm (like the Sironar N 135/5.6 for instance) or smaller. The G-claron 150/9 might be your...
