Almost surrealistic shot Jeff. Great catch and fine capture. I note a few stars above the fog... this feels like a scene from Close Encounters of a Third Kind...

Mark - I've enjoyed the series from Colmar and it's really nice to see stained glass windows lit from the inside of a church for a change.

Philip - the park bench shot is fantastic and you caught the moment perfectly. His body language could be anything from despair to sheer heat fatigue - just great.

Ray - the hawk is amazing. I assume those are with the D7000. (I also guessed right, BTW

Curtis - is it fair play to practice before Nikki gets to you? Lovely images and bokeh.

Jose - the plant lice are awesome. They look quite well armed too. Just as well they aren't dog sized.

Tony - the causeway shot is exactly what I have in mind for our railway bridge which is used by a lot of pedestrians but which I haven't been able to get right. Well done.

Thanks Curtis. I've walked the stairs to this beach hundreds of times. To see something so familiar in such a different way was quite a gift.

Lovely shot Eric, wonderful pose. I just think however she would be better off reading "Why good people are divided by cat people and dog people."


This is because cats and dogs think differently and have differing attitudes from each other.

The cat thinks, "You look after me, feed me and care for me love me; I must be your god."
Dogs think, "You look after me, feed me, care for me and love me; you are my god."

Eric - Congrats on the f1.8, gorgeous looking lens.

Monty - That one of Orcus is really funny!

Jeff - Fantastic Image!

Tony - I love the simplicity of this image, well done!

Some sort of plant lice from today morning:

Jose, cool shot of a VERY nasty bug. These are squash bug nymphs. These are NOT what you want to see invading your squash!

Leighton the church shot is wonderful HDR?



Thanks Ray. No, this wasn't an HDR. It's a actually just a jpeg right out of the camera with a little adjustment in LR.

Some mornings ago I managed to got this small flower bud with "Nikki's daughter" plus a tube at f/2:


Small flower bud with Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 K ai'd + 20mm tube by labecoaves, on Flickr

D3 + 20mm Vivitar tube + 85mm f/1.8 K ai'd, hand held , ISO 200, f/2 at 1/8000s, ~30% cropped.
The flower bud had 1 cm or less and the DOF is so tiny at f/2.

Love the shot of the trio walking along the breakwater. Wonderful colors and excellent composition. Does the D600 have a sensor cleaning system? I use a rocket blower on my D700, though on one occasion I had my local camera technician clean it. He did a great job for fifty bucks.

So many D600 cameras on the thread now. Loving all the fine photos taken with this fine new addition to Nikon's camera lineup.


Thanks Curtis, Leighton, Matt and Peter for your comments on my marina picture! Curtis the D600 comes with a sensor cleaning feature with a identical interface to the one in my D700 but this time I appear to have gotten something beyond its powers, I've also got the rocket blower and will be giving it a try this afternoon. If not then I'll see about getting it done locally. Man I can't wait to have raw support in LR!

Jimmy, see my own terminal case: this last month I bought my second copy of a 28mm f/2 AI to compare with another AI; a second copy of the 20mm f/2.8 AIS to compare with another AIS copy, and a second copy of the 50mm f/1.2 AI to compare with my AI-S version.

Of course some sanity remains, since the "loosers" in the comparison tests will be sold


Jose, thank you for the welcome.
I know, the NMFAS disease has no cure, but it has its remedy. Did you notice that in my first post I mentioned that I now have two copies of the 28mmf2.8AIS but one has SIC. So I'm comparing their performance to see if the one with the special coating is any better. I hope both of us will be sane enough to let go of the extra copies.
