all these hills here are clad in different shades of green. This is showing a typical local landscape with agriculture, and the new kind of trees in the backdrop.

Iduna,

 

A lovely pastoral scene with the vibrant colors, composition and clarity. If you could get rid of the tower and the windmills in the background, it would even be better.

Paul,

yes, you are right, sometimes one should manipulate. Many thanks for your advice....

Iduna,

How nice it is to see Spring appearing on the other side of the world,

with it's sense of life's renewal and gorgeous rich greens.

(Personally) I didn't think the items you have removed (in the second image)

were very intrusive as they were such a tiny part of the landscape as a whole.

Dee,

thanks a lot for your rich comment. In so far as our landscape is not heavily corrupted by these "landmarks" I agree with you. One has to reconsider from time to time and each case individually.

James,

yes, it was mainly the repairbrush in PSE . Thanks for your feedback. Nice that you like it.

 

Stuart,

thanks for taking part in this little discourse. Most people do not seem to be too much disturbed by the windmills.

Hello Iduna.

I like all these variety of different greens in your landscape .I agree with Paul to remove the windmills ,although they are not to abrasive .At any case .Both images are excellent.

Very often one sees whole wind farms appearing here in North America.In some cases they distort the view .Van Gogh would not have liked this! Greetings: John Basso.

John,

 

yes, indeed , there are many windparks here as well and this is more than a nuisance not only for a photographer but also under aspects of environment protection. I do not want to open this widely discussed theme but one aspect is being neglected. Here we have the problem that birds get into to trouble because their lungs cannot stand the underpressure of the air. They fall like a stone from e sky and die. This could be avoided simply by stopping the rotating blades for an hour per day when this type of bird is hunting. I read a report on this by a photpgrapher. Thanks very much for your comment.

      Lupines are blanketing the areas around Folsom Lake. Here are a few images from a morning visit. All pics/panoramas taken with TL2/18-56 mm combo. It was frustrating to watch people trample wildflowers for their dumb selfies and/or kid portraits as well as 'professional' photogs doing model shoots and dragging all their gear on the flowers.

      Can I please get some advice / guidance on an issue.  I recently bought an m4p 1 week ago.
      The first roll was a brand bought caninister and loaded using the quick loading technique (guide end into tulip, put bottom plate on and good to go).
      The second roll was a home bulk load affair.  I think I didnt have a clean cut on the end of the roll, so when I loaded into the tulip, it has 'snagged' on the spring in the centre.
      I had to take the roll out as after taking 2 shots I noticed that the film wasnt feeding correctly.
      The problem was that as i pulled the film out of the m4p, is stretched the spring.  So now that I am trying to load film, the spring doesnt allow the film to sit in the tulip and load onto the sprockets. (see bottom left hand corner of photo 1.
      Photo 2 shows that if a lend the end of the film to sit outisde of the tulip, the film loads, so no faults with the sporkets or loading mechanism
      Photos 3 shows a work around where i cut away half the width of the end of the roll, so it feeds into the tulip above the spring, whilst this does work, its not a long term solution.
      Does anyone have any ideas how to re-set the spring??  looking down inside the centre coloumn of the tulip, I can see a screw, but Im loathed to start exploring a fix.
      I have googled Leica M4p repair manual, but havent found anything.
      Any advice would be kindly received.
