I was in Duluth Sat., had to go to First Photo to pick up a print I had them make for me and then went and took some pictures. I was going to take a pic of the old twins bar but looked like it was shut down so then the Chinese place next door caught my eye and the red car pulled right in front and parked. Took a few more in the area might post another later.

Heres another one I took in the neighborhood, look familiar?

Another half decent photograph with my Minolta 50mm F1.4, a polarizer and lens hood.

Definitely! Never been into any of those places, unlike Huie's.

Here's one of my own from Duluth, from Coffee Creek:

I wish my Canon 6D had a view finder like the Fuji X-T1 so I could use manual lenses much easier on it :-)

I posted some shots in the ZE/ZF/ZM thread with the 100 MP of a family of Red Necked Grebes that have nested near where I lived. I revisited their nest tonight in much better light and with my Minolta Rokkor MC 400 f/5.6 APO. Here are some of the shots. It was much nicer catching these lovely birds with better light and the longer lens.

Steve, nice light on the grebes! I like the first two shots the best, especially if you could clone out the distracting post sticking up in the foreground.

Those baby grebes are cute too and have interesting markings. They should look great swimming behind mom when they get old enough soon. We only get eared, horned, and Clark's grebes here. Never seen baby Grebes before. Thanks for sharing!

I think the chicks are quite cute too. One interesting observation is that there are two different sets of chicks (Two that look older and are about twice the size and two that are smaller). There are also two eggs still in the nest. It seems that they may lay multiple eggs throughout the summer. It will be interesting to see if the eggs still in the nest hatch, but the mother is clearly brooding them as if she expects them to hatch. The bigger set of chicks swim about five feet away from the nest now and the little one sometimes hop in the water and then get right back out. All of them like to climb on their mother's back. I would love a shot of her swimming carrying them on her back, but with the eggs in the nest she is almost never out of it. The father just seems to spend the whole day catching fish and feeding everyone. He seems pretty attentive, but I haven't seen the little ones climb on his back yet. Perhaps they only do that to the mother.

Nice shots Derek. I especially like the one of your daughter in the car and the daisy. The bokeh is certainly funky wide open and close but I like it on that daisy shot. I found the one I had (I also has the 49mm last version) was a lot funkier for that type of shot (see shot below). Do you think the bokeh might be a little less funky on the A7?

P.S - I really like the second to the last one, but find the hexagon highlight distracting. You might consider cloning that out.

thanks!

i don't think the bokeh is any different for any of my rokkors on the a7 versus film. i think it's just the background and distance/light. my MD W with 55mm filter threads is also quite funky close up but seems to get quite smooth at mid distance. judging by the tree/bench shot the 49mm filter thread version doesn't smooth out that way. i'll have to do some direct comparing sometime soon.

regarding the hexagon, i was trying to create a series of flare hexagons in the shot but failed.

here's a few more f/2 bokeh samples from around the yard:

I went back and checked on my Rokkor 28 f/2 shots and it turns out mine was a MC (I had a late MD with 49mm filter threads 35 f/1.8 and I got them mixed up). On mine, like your MD W, the bokeh did smooth out at medium distances. Here are a couple of examples:

Nice, good to know. I was wondering if they got on the mothers back like Mergansers do. Hope you get a shot of that happening.

yay, 2/28 party. I got mine ages ago, but there was some fungus inside it so I took it to the side with the intent to fix it later which I never did.
So when I packed my photobag this evening I saw it and decided to give it a chance and I am really positively surprised how much I like 28mm.

Phillip, love the rich dark tones in your last shot. So lush I can smell the moss and here the birds.
