Sony Nex-7 with the Leica 90 Tele Elmarit 2,8

Yesterday in the early evening as the sun was going down over Gloucester harbor the wind was still and the harbor was like glass. I was waiting for a friend to show up and I had my trusty Sony Nex-7 with me with it's companion of late the Leica Tele Elmarit. At 135mm the lens was not really long enough for what I wanted to do but with the 24mp sensor on the Sony I was able to blow it up even more which gave me some great latitude. I was looking for a shot or two of the waterfront that looked crowded but peaceful and I think the two images I display here do that.

 

 

The juxtaposition of the lobster boats, a couple of fishing vessels, and a schooner really add to the working waterfront feel to the photo. Then as I started to look around for interesting light play on the buildings these shadows started to show up. 

 

Now that I have gotten used to the fringing feature of this camera it has become really easy to focus with the lens wide open at 2,8.
