Hello All,

Here are 3 handheld images of the Woolworth building as viewed from Brooklyn across the East River.

The first is a wide 31mm shot. The building is the one with the point on top in the middle of the image.

The second shot is a 432mm (full 15x zoom) of the Woolworth building.

The third s a 100% crop of the 432mm shot.

Both were cropped to 4x6 aspect ratio and 600 pixels long side, saved as level 9 jpegs. Did PP with only Auto Levels and Focus Magic at strength 2 on both.

Note: with 74mm UV filter in place.

I hope you find this interesting.

Your comments are very welcome:

I am simply amazed. Thank you Carl Zeiss and Sony:

Nick, that's interesting as they are - as you state it- real-life situations and not "optimal" ones. :cool:
