Taal Volcano - Philippines

Thanks Jean & Mcliu. It took a 1 hour taxi ride, a 35 min boat ride, and a 35 min horse back ride up the volcano for this shot. It was well worth it. This is one of my favorite shots so far.

Thanks Michiel. This was actually the same shot. I just didn't load it up with crap this time. I cropped it slightly differently and enhanced the reds a bit to accent the tip, but that was pretty much it. This pics is exactly what I shot. I think you're right though. I have to watch the focus. It could be a tad clearer on the tip. Well..next time.

it wasn't too hard, the chain and pole it was on helped out. Although, he was in direct sunlight everywhere I stood. I think I got your good side no?

My pleasure Corey, and looking forward to your future submissions!

I know how critical focusing can be; try manual focusing close-up at f1.4 and a 50 or a 35 with a moving subject, such as a face of a person that won't stand still...

What I then do (which is why I prefer manual focusing in some situations) is move the camera instead of the focusing ring. It's still a tricky business at close range and wide openings though...

This I actually do with the D700 and the Zeiss 2.0/50 Makro-Planar, or the FM2n or FA with assorted Ai-S glass, or the RTS III with assorted Zeiss glass.

Cheers,

Michiel

@Zeis Man -Thanks. I use the pic as my fantasy island. This was the view from my room on my last vacation to the Philippines.

@mrbiglens - Thanks. FYI - this is a no speedo zone.

The screen really makes this come together. It really brings you to the main subject instantly. Good shot!

Thanks I took this shot with a P&S Camera just before I bought my DSLR. I put my polarized sunglasses in front of the lens.
