Is that the old boat on lake wanaka?Never been there but you see it a lot on travel shows.
Looooong shot. Very Happy


Sorry I missed this post. Embarassed

That's the TSS Earnslaw. You were close, it's actually on Lake Wakatipu, just a short drive (60km / 45 minutes) south of Lake Wanaka.

It's 98 years old this year, and it is quite significant historically as it is the only remaining coal-fired passenger steamship in the southern hemisphere. I consider myself lucky to have seen it - machines of this type are hard to find, expensive to maintain (so often scrapped), and impossible to replace. Sad


I've been trying to get a distance shot of it with the steam whistle blowing as it comes in to port. It's quite difficult at 2000mm+ focal length, as by the time you hear it, the whistle has actually stopped blowing! Shocked You're far enough away that the difference between the speed of light and the speed of sound is that significant! Shocked

Hi there you all,

Ive just found my Love for manual Fokus Lenses and this is my first Post on this great Board, so I just say a kind "Hello" to you all. For now, my first manual Lens is a Zuiko Auto-S 50mm, f1,8 wich i like very much. The following Picture is done with this Lens + an additional B&W Close Focusing Filter/Lens, but Ive bought a Vivitar Macro-Teleconverter x2 now, wich is far better. Hope you like it.

So I say "Hello MF-Lenses" with a Flower... Smile

I'm certainly no match for the artistic perspectives of the rest of the group, but I was pretty happy with how this shot turned out:



Vivitar 500mm + Soligor 3x TC + 1.52x D40 crop = 2,280mm...
handheld at 1/100, f/16, ISO 1600. Shocked


For reference, here's the same shot 38 seconds later at 18mm (27mm equivalent):

Very Happy


That's a beautiful steamer!

Today I did this....

The Story.. This little Firefly was fallen into my Pool. She seemed to be dead, so I picked her out and did this shot. Then I went back in my Yard to lay her into the Gras. Then suddenly she moved....and fly away...Thats great.

Done with OM Zuiko Auto-s50mm,f1,8 + Vivitar Macro Converter + B&W NL5

Excuse my obtuseness, but what is an "SW 120" lens? It sure takes nice photos.
