What a great set Ron. Those first two shots are beautiful! I am surprised by the subject separation in #1. That Nikkor 10.5cm is a really good lens.


+1 Excellent work!

Thanks Michael, Gary, Adam and Joe!

Gary, yes there is some decent subject/background separation and the lens's long focus throw makes it pretty easy to focus accurately. These would have been much more hit or miss with my 90 Summarit. And the Nikkor is quite sharp centrally from wide open. Definitely a notch above the Zeiss-Opton at mid distances. I've thought about going down there with my Canon and a telephoto lens, but then I'd end up with typical animal 'portraits' and deer are so common anyway. I mean, it would be fun, but I get more of a kick out of doing this with a camera system you're not supposed to shoot wildlife with, particularly the challenge of seeing how close I can get for a reasonable photo within both my and the animal's comfort zones. I guess it helps they're semi-used to people, though still skittish.

The Nikkor is decent wide open at infinity, though stopping down helps a lot. But I like it best for near MFD shooting where a nicely complementary touch of SA adds subtle smoothness. Obviously, with it being a 105mm, it's going to look a lot different from a 50.

At MFD of ~4 feet:






This is the Zeiss-Opton 50/1.5 Sonnar of the same branch at MFD of ~1m, at around f/2, but on a sunny day:






The Nikkor again, at around MFD:











And a bit farther away:

Checking in on my deer herd again today (I never post cat photos, so I guess this is OK)...

And if that isn't enough wildlife for you, I also found this guy...

He was either senile or kind of slow... he'd get nervous every time I moved closer and would make a move for the water, but then would stop halfway, wait 15 seconds and turn around and return to the log he was chewing on. This was repeated numerous times, to my amusement and perhaps his annoyance.


fantastic shots!

careful though, there was a photographer killed by a beaver recently if you can believe it.

Ron, love the 3rd pic of the leaves with blueish background! Excellent and really smooth rendering.

Allen, excellent set and nice theme with the hands! No comments on the Blackhawk pics since we just lost out to Chicago

Phil, excellent set with the 35Summaron 2.8, medium format feel to your pp, really nice. Have you made large prints from the Monochrom files? These would be gorgeous. Also, congrats on your Pentax. although if you enjoy medium format, you ought to try the S2 with the superb Leica S lenses.

Thanks Joe over 2 million at the parade today. I had a good friend that was at the last game in the Garden and said the Boston fans were gracious. It was a GREAT series.

jojomon11, I really like your balcony shot! The Noct and Mono are amazing, just the buggy disturbs me a bit.

Thanks Allen and muc_marlin, wonderful comp again Allen on the daises!

Agree with you on the buggy, tried to crop it out, but didn't work, so I left it alone to show the noct rendering

I wish the base iso was much lower on the mono, I haven't tested it pushed down yet, but from my experience with the M9 pushed down, I didn't like the results

Phil, great photo with the Noctilux and my apologies because for some reason I had managed to click the Hide Me button on you so I missed your last posts and your comments. Hopefully I haven't missed that many of them.

No problems joakim, I do that also for buyers that have promised payment and didn't do it on the B and S forums

Is that the Canada Nationals race? or just a local race?

Phil

Hows this for a Allen style shot?

Hehe, thanks Derek - I'll be sure to keep that in mind! I felt I kept a pretty reasonable distance from the beaver. I didn't want to scare him away and he seemed pretty slow and intent on chowing down on the fallen tree limbs. BTW, there was also recently something about a photographer getting rammed by a deer. I tend to keep some distance from the larger males. Video: http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=a37_1372267114

Allen - excellent set from the celebration! My condolences to Joe... after the Leafs went out that way against Boston. I'm NOT a Leafs fan, so actually don't really care.
Phil - cool balcony shots, and really like the one of the procession!
Joakim - thanks for that one! So how did Canada fare at the race?
Thanks Peter for your comment!

Here's one with the Nikkor 10.5cm f/2.5 LTM:







Yet again, I could have benefitted a lot from live view here... basically held the camera an inch over the water and hoped the framing was OK. Of a few of them, this one worked out the best and just avoided cutting off the canoe. This effect seems to work quite nicely with a longer lens.
