No mf shooting this week as I bought a fantastic 300mm f/2.8 lens a week ago. Used it primarily at the Western WA Mounted Shooters event and boy is it a dream lens. I've never owned a lens of this magnitude and it is a performer. All taking on the D800. Here are just a few samplings.

Don,
Very peaceful. Love the warm tones. I'll bet you enjoyed your breakfast after an early morning's shooting in a beautiful location.

Ani,
Nice to see you posting again. Great action series.
I assume that the guns fire blanks and it is the high velocity air pulse that pops the balloon?

Thanks Colin,
Yup only blanks are used. It is a fun and exciting sport to not only watch but to photograph. Both horse and rider work really hard in their partnership.

Thank you Colin! Yes, I love the peacefulness of getting out early in the morning before the hustle bustle of the day begins. There is something very calming about that time of day that I absolutely treasure!

I've been enjoying you images throughout the UK. It's a place that I've never been able to visit, so you allow me to enjoy it vicariously through you wonderful images!

The following image was taken yesterday morning as well, again with my Df/Sigma Art 50.

Another lovely serene scene. Love those sunstars - albeit small.
Since I didn't want to lug a tripod around all day I was pleasantly surprised by the output from my 24-120 VR for my blue-hour London shots. I am travelling to Berlin to present at a conference next week and will tag on a day's vacation at the end to butt up to the weekend. The D610 / 24-120VR will be making the trip with me (wife too for the latter part). I will likely sneak in a MF lens or two into my luggage. Whether the IR camera comes along is dependant on the weather forecast.

I was playing around with Photoshop's channel swap feature to get this false colour image of a tidal estuary in Cornwall, UK.

Thank you Jose! I have long admired your collection of lenses and the images you've been able to capture with them. The Cock-tailed Tyrant above is no exception!

Here is another one of my wife's flowers, taken today again with my Df/Sigma Art 50...

Don - nice flower shots. That Sigma looks like a great lens in accomplished hands.

Jose - as ever your wild bird shots are incredible.

I have not had an AF lens mounted for a while

Today I decided to do a small comparison between the 135mm f2 DC and the 135mm f2 Ai-s

On a D500 which means 202mm obviously ....

closest focus distance

The D500 is as unforgiving of movement as the D810 and focus depth too !!

Anyway .... here goes

Steve
Nikon on Nikon always




Stokesey 2017


Auto focus at f4.5 I think

  NIKON D500    135mm    f/4.5    1/80s    200 ISO    0.0 EV  





Stokesey 2017


Manual focus - unforgiven movement .... should use a tripod perhaps

  NIKON D500    135mm    f/2.0    1/500s    200 ISO    0.0 EV  





Stokesey 2017


Auto focus hydrangea flower manually focused

  NIKON D500    135mm    f/2.0    1/320s    200 ISO    0.0 EV  





Stokesey 2017


Manual focus hydrangea - obviously it was manually focused at f2

  NIKON D500    135mm    f/2.0    1/500s    200 ISO    0.0 EV

I have been really enjoying your more natural processing of late. I imagine each shot looking just like that in person.
