    Melb meet 17-02 St Kilda

    I got about 10 images or so.

    1.


    2.


    3.


    4.


    5.


    6.


    7.


    8.


    9.


    10.


    With all those f/1.2 Canon lenses being bandied about(at my end of the table), sometimes I wished I'd gone the other way!

    ... but then again, I think to myself... NAHHHH, no way! The D3s is the future of (modern)photography

    Had fun, despite the feral breeze that gave me a massive headache. Got home at about 10:30 or so, and fell straight into bed, without a thought as to what(if any) images I got.

    Great to see familiar faces again, and also see some new ones too.
    Will have to do it all again, sooner rather than later.. and maybe even make it a regular event, say once or twice a month at a predetermined time. That way we can just look forward to catching up.

    OH!

    ps. I've just come into possession of another screen, so I'm running a dual screen PC, for the first time.
    problem I have is the massive disparity between the two screens calibration.
    On my old CRT, these images look dark and muddy, and yet on this new(old, donated) LCD, they look a lot better. Been putting off getting a Spyder for too long, and now the reality has hit home a lot harder than I thought it would!.. CALIBRATE YOUR MONITORS!!!
    I'm going to get myself a Spyder3 Pro(or maybe Elite) either tomorrow or over the weekend. I have to get these two monitors to stop arguing over which way to process the image.. it's driving me nuts.

    Possible scenario: Once I've done my calibration it may be available to a few local members to calibrate their monitors(IF you can prize it out my my rigamortis affected fingertips )

    pps. there goes that 105mm lens I wanted to get tomorrow! ....

    ppps. Uber UBER KOOL having two screen

    Some good pics there AK I particularly like the gorgeous colours in 4 & 5.
    Yes, it is great having dual monitors - I had them in my last job, but they were BOTH uncalibrated so they didn't have to argue too much! Just as well I didn't have to process any photos for work though.

    I have never been into a bar and seen so many Canon L lenses on a table. Usually its just empty glasses.

    Nice photsos AK

    LOL! That super sturdy looking table was groaning under the weight of all those red lenses at the near end
    Did you notice Ernie getting Nikon envy in the far corner?

    oh! and FYI, initially when you asked if you were in my way with the pier sunset shot(#5) and originally you weren't! But then you changed your composition and suddenly your elbow became part of my scene, so I had to adapt, no problem.

    Great set of images as always, AK
    The light in #2 is fantastic. #4 is a terrific shot !
    Like those volleyball shots too, its certainly a different perspective from mine.

    Twas a good night meet.
    and i'm not sure if i got around to say to you.

    Nikon envy? lol (although i did have a Nikon about a year ago...)
    I'm just jealous your copy of the Siggy 50 EX focuses much better than mine!!
    I might have to pay CR Kennedy a visit soon...
    Wait, after playing with James 50L, i'm awfully tempted

    nice images AK
    wish i'd been able to make it

    however, i would be glad to chip in on the cost of a calibrator if you think it will benefit my laptop screen
    Thanks,
    Nam
