The last few remaining days of “cool” weather before the cold rushes in. I was trying to snag what little bit of foliage we had in the parks of Boston. I was in New York much of the season, so my opportunities were limited. Still, love the color of the tree I found at the pond in the Public Garden.
I was very interested in this “sort-of” Fifty – so I wanted to shoot with it under less than stellar conditions. After reading myself cross-eyed on this lens, the primary or predominate complaint was how soft it was wide-open, in the center. Subsequently, the photos I have illustrated here were in poor light, shallow depth-of-field (so looking at center IQ), very grainy, and so on.
My thoughts here are that this lens is actually so, so much sharper than EVERYONE seems to think it is. To make things worse (better, actually) I have NOT even done any AF-Fine Tune, yet.
Now that iOS 11 supports RAW image file formats from a multitude of cameras, the door has opened to actually editing RAW images on your phone and iPad. Of course, that comes with its own unique set of constraints (storage and processing power leap to mind). But if you’re willing to go mobile, the new RAW Power app from Gentlemen Coders can accommodate your desires
Traveling from Boston westbound out into the suburbs and little towns of the greater Boston area couldn’t be more picturesque. There are multiple possibilities, but the particular path along the Emerald Necklace is incredible, especially this time of year.
You could shoot along the Emerald Necklace everyday for a year and still not cover it all. The Necklace comprises half of the City of Boston’s park acreage, parkland in the Town of Brookline, and parkways and park edges under the jurisdiction of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. More than 300,000 people live within its watershed area. From Boston Common to Franklin Park it is approximately seven miles by foot or bicycle through the parks.
Cider Hill Farm began in 1978 when Ed and Eleanor Cook purchased the old Battis Dairy Farm with the hope of transforming it into an apple farm. Not long after that, the Cook’s son, Glenn, along with his new bride, Karen, bought the adjacent Vedrani Poultry Farm so they could start a quality life together.We now grow fruits and vegetables on nearly 70 acres of our 145 acre farm and offer many of these as pick your own crops. We have grown a very diversified approach in regards to labor, marketing, season extension, community involvement, and progressive practices that you will see in our renewable energy projects.
