Joe, I've been shooting golf courses lately and find that the best light is soon after dawn and a couple hours before sunset.  Low, direct, cross or backlight make incredibly wonderful and dramatic images.  The suggestion of a higher viewpoint is good, even a lift if you want to really provide a unique vantage point.  Create a story with your composition, lead the viewer from the foreground to the background.  Jim

I've just returned from a golf and landscape trip to Scotland.  Here's a shot that combines both, it's the Trump Resort's 3rd hole from the 4th tee.  The course is as hard as it gets, it's much easier to photograph it!  Jim

The La Sal Mountains are going off right now. It'll be done in a week. Desert around Moab hasn't started changing yet.

Has anyone used a 180mm lens on a technical field camera such as the Arca Rm3di?  I saw that Nikor has a lens at this focal length, and was wondering if it was a super sharp lens, how big the image circle was, and what it was like to use.  Thanks for the replies in advance.
These older lenses are not Apo-Chromatic and so do not focus all three colors,RGB, well enough for precise and sharp focus.
The best available outside of the Digital models are the Rodenstock Apo-Sironar S lenses, or the Schneider Apo-Symmar-L.
The earlier lens model's had large errors, with especially the red component, too great to achieve anything near excellent results.
A note on use.  These longer focal length lenses, will allow a bit more stop down so with backs up to 60mp you may be able to stop down to about F16.5.
With an 80mp back you can do nice work now at F11-F11.5, where the wide angles lenses are rarely good past F8.5.
In post you may need a bit more contrast and sharpening, but otherwise excellent results can be obtained.
The stopping down also covers some of the focus shift, especially in the red range, that occurs in all lenses.
Personal testing will let you know your acceptable aperture limits.
Hope this helps,

You may have just sold it.  Let me do some research on it.  Is the lens in prime condition?  Why are you selling it?

Won't be long before I'm watching that guy, Chris. Looks as if we may soon have a contract on our Colorado house, and we're getting ready to put a new one in at Hawthorne. This one will be our permanent residence and probably will see us out.

To answer your question, I think it's a fine piece of work, William.

Shot in the Alps last month. This is my first real try at Capture One. Amazing waterfall, the only real problems: 1 keeping the spray off the lens and filters and 2 the position of the sun.
Hope you like it.

I am currently reading this tome.

 Newly published and so far a great read. The definition of street is widely ranging and I think Bernard's images would be considered street by the author.

Stamper, go to Amazon and check my review of this book. You're right, according to these guys a picture of a street is street photography. In fact, they think a picture of a body of water is street photography.
