I have been using a Black Rapid sling for a couple of years. I love it for several reasons. First, it screws into the 1/4" tripod mount on the base of the camera and is very secure. Second, it is adjustable so my camera is always on or near my right hip and within inches of my right hand. Third, it is comfortable.

Here are two shots I have taken on my way home, one last night and one tonight. Trying out my new Nikkor 10-20mm.

Focus stacking is a great tool and supported by PS. You can even google it and find instructions.

We have a golf course behind our house and it is frequented by 20-30 mule deer (also a rafter of wild turkeys...I had to look that up to know the correct word). The deer love our apples, so we often take a few that have fallen and toss them over the fence. Yesterday there were four (including two very young ones) that were coming right up to the fence with me just a few feet away and staring me down in an obvious effort to let me know they wanted more. The photos had to be shot through the fence, but still fun. I also managed a few photos of some of the last apples and leaves left on the tree. It was windy, so focus was a challenge.

I have been using the 18-140 as my carry-around lens on my D7200 for several years (good lens) and also picked up an older Nikon 105 micro (love it!) for true macro stuff. Yesterday I purchased a used Tamron 16-300 from B&H to get that longer reach (arriving Friday). I may end up selling the 18-140.

Very nice processing on these! I was over there in July playing some golf. I'll look forward to seeing some of your Cliff shots.


The day we were at the Cliffs was a challenge for good photos, but I have at least one or two I will post soon.

They're good compositions. I like the fishing boat frame best. A few clicks on the cliff/sea shot in DxO 11 I came up with this.


Very nice! Thanks for that!

I was also born in Portland, but lived in Hillsboro (yes, loved KISN), and then moved to Eugene at age 14.

I appreciate the feedback. HDR is so subjective; no one PP satisfies everyone, but I wanted to dial it back a little on a couple and look at the results. I decided the photo of the falls did need a little more exposure in PP. Thanks for that observation.

I am a native of Oregon and spent many summers in those very areas, so I know the lighthouses well. In fact, we visited Yaquina Head LH in April this year. Love the photos you shared.

I shoot bracketed sets wherever possible, even hand-held, because it gives me the option of processing as HDR or choosing a single best exposure for normal or HDR post-processing. I often dial back certain aspects from presets (I use Photomatic 6) to achieve more realistic results, but the added depth and texture I keep is the difference between blah and bang.

I like the last one! 19 shots for focus stacking, that was amazing sharp! I believe there was no wind at all during the shots, then the flower will maintain still. Good work!


Focus stacking is easiest if there is no wind. I find that PS will align photos where there is a small amount of movement, but the tolerance for wind is low.

I shot these over the summer when my flowers were in full bloom. The first 3 were shot with an 18-140mm lens. For the last one I was shooting with a 105 micro and used focus stacking involving 19 frames merged in PS. That bloom is only about an inch tall.
