Default Sony NEX-5N in Norway

Hi folks!


In this tread I will show som pictures taken with my Sony NEX-5N, which I bought because I needed something to play with. For more seriouse work (I do mostly landscapes) I use my Nikon D300s, but I usually have one or two "fool-around"-cameras on the side to play with as well. The reason I bought into the NEX-system is its ability to make use of old Legacy-glass which I like very much.

More about this later, when my adapters are coming in through the mail.

For today, just this one shot here from near where I live, in Fredrikstad in the South of Norway.

Taken just some hours ago - some heavy clouds coming down the river, and it rained about halve an hour later.

Enjoy!

Just another "make" of the above.

Still sthe same scene, but now with some tilt to the camera to show more of the foreground. In this slightly tilting-down posistion the UWC distorted the sides quite a bit, so that I had to change the perspective some.


Best regards,
Walter

Which is a blend of the Black & White picture in post #4 - and the color one below. The blend is 60% B&W and 40% Color. With that blend I tried to create a mood that is more in line with these old wooden buildings in the Old Town of Fredrikstad.

Original color one - but it is not very exciting, and I actually prefer the B&W and the above 60%blend.




I'll try to keep'em coming...if anyone is interested, that is!

Default A walk in the woods...

And the wood anemone or windflower (I think it's called in the US) is blooming in big colonies amongst the birchwood and oaktrees. The NEX 5N is such a joy to use when photographing flowers with its tiltable LCD-screen!

Low camerapositions are a joy with the NEX-5N.
With Sony 16mm. Some (or in fact, most...) lens-reviews have this 16mm down to be a bit on "the soft side". I don't think this is visible unless you are a pixel-peeper...

Some "fallen giants" on the ground. Oak trees in different stages of decay.
Taken with a "Legacy Glass"-lens. Old, manual Vivitar "Auto Wide Angle" 35mm f/2.8 (made by Tokina) on Big_Is M42-NEX adapter.
Vivitar has 42-mount.
