  5. it almost looks like you rotated the right side of the camera UP as you depressed the shutter
    yes, i know you shot at 1/800

    still.... a
    weird finding
    wouldn't make ANYTHING of it... if it doesn't happen again
  6. I have no clue....did you change lenses? Could it be somthing on the front or back element?

    Red boat is not stetched or something.
    Just nature patterns, water mirrors etc.

    Just looking at this photo I think your seeing reflections of the reeds or grass on a smooth water surface.

    Corner distortion would be my guess, and it's accentuated by the trees reflecting in the water. You should stop worrying and enjoy your shooting, Steinar :wink:

    Thank you all - yes, Sonya, I was changing lenses - just change from 85 mm f/1.4 and back again to 14-24.

    Yes, Greg it looks like so, but 1/800, no.

    Jeff and Orfeas... yes... and no;)  it looks to weird to be that, I think, but not sure, because there is a lot of mirroring.

    A lot of suggestions - Phillip, that is the same I thought myself in the first place, but then I did not came up again, even I was shooting the whole day at 14mm, because I wanted to learn this focal lenght.

    We will see, if it turns up again.

    Thank you again.

    I am not worrying so much, because it did not show up again, even I shot a lot with that lens that day, but I was very curious, because it looks so funny, and I did not see it before I sat with the pc.
  11. Reflections is my guess.

  12. I really don't think it's corner distortion with this lens at 5.6.
    Did you turn the camera off while switching the lenses? Were there any UFOs present!?
    I'm betting it was some sort of electrical issue that resolved itself -static discharge across the sensor, perhaps?

    OOOH - maybe the sensor recorded part of it's vibrating clean cycle??

  13. Now we're talking!!!!! :eek: :biggrin: Maybe that rare Scandinavian phenomena "Aurora Aquatarious" :biggrin:

  15. i don't see anything wrong with the images? if your looking at the streaking of the reflections on the water, thats just how things look when they are reflected in rippling water.
  16. Steinar,

    If you cover the water, the trees and reeds look normal. What you are seeing is the reflection in the water that gives the illusion that the stripes carry up into the trees.

    Thank you, Joe and Mike - maybe that is, but it is not a picture I would come with as an assignment-job. Perhaps it is mixed by the distortion.

    Thank you again.

    Yes, I think you and Mike are right. I must admit that it looked like a defect of some kind.
