    Sometimes, I don't actually mind being woken up at 5.30 on a Sunday. But only sometimes.

    [​IMG]Sunday Morning Mist by Alan Jones, on Flickr

    This is the first time I've ever used the HDR merge in Lightroom, because there was no way a grad was going to work here. I'm kicking myself a little that I didn't switch to the 55-200 and home in on the horse the other side of the mist, that would have been a shot in it's own right!

    From a Smithsonian article

    Water at the center of the spring, which bubbles up 121 feet from underground chambers, can reach temperatures around 189 degrees Fahrenheit, which makes it too hot to sustain most life (some life does manage to exist, but its limited to organisms that feed off of inorganic chemicals like hyrdogen gas). Because there’s very little living in the center of the pool, the water looks extremely clear, and has a beautiful, deep-blue color (thanks to the scattering of blue wavelengths—the same reason oceans and lakes appear blue to the naked eye). But as the water spreads out and cools, it creates concentric circles of varying temperatures—like a stacking matryoshka doll, if each doll signified a different temperature. And these distinct temperature rings are key, because each ring creates a very different environment inhabited by different types of bacteria. And it’s the different types of bacteria that give the spring its prismatic colors.

    Yellowstone is an incredible place.

    As others have said, lovely shot! I tend to prefer blending with luminosity masks these days, but it's always worth putting the shots into LR HDR blend first to see what you get. Sometimes, as here, it does an excellent job...

    Just a quick FYI
    I had a bunch of Hahnel Captur remote stuff for my Nikon, and figured I`d see what happens with a cable set for Fuji .... It all works yayy, so am guessing the units are pretty generic, and it`s only the cables that need changing over :)

    just thought I`d share, in case anyone else has this issue.

    Ladies and Gents - anybody know what the change to magnification and working distance is from adding a teleconverter (1.4x or 2x) to the 80mm ?

    Had a quick Google but nothing really definitive leaping out at me...

    Cheers :)

    Looking at the 1.4tc specification page on the Fuji website

    http://www.fujifilm.com/products/digital_cameras/x/fujinon_lens_xf14x_tc_wr/specifications/

    It says ' that the focus range will be the same as that of the lens and the magnification will be times 1.4'

    Both are great lenses! The Zeiss renders beautifully and is a bit sharper, particuarly for portraits and landscapes, but is prone to CA if shooting through subjects on different planes e.g. trees or in strong light. The Fujinon is more useful in that it has OIS and AF for non-landscape shots and is very light.

    Personally, as much as I love Zeiss lenses, I'd go with the Fuji for versatility. Particularly if you can get a cheap one for around £120 used.

    New ones can be found here:

    Spent an hour trying to get some half decent pictures a friends horse. I'm not kidding when I say there are probably five out of a couple of hundred that are remotely useable! The horse was so hungry she spent the whole time head down eating grass! Back again next week to try again :rolleyes::D

    It will never not be hungry. I have also tried this and came away with similar results.

    Second one for me, very good looking horse.

    A great shot evoking fond memories of childhood holidays there.

    Unfortunately this memory was shattered when I revisited a few years ago. The place now seems rather tawdry. <sigh> Time marches on.

    So true. Apparently she gorges for 3 hours at a time. (The horse, not my friend!)
