Fantastic images through this thread, I liked the B&W factory portrait a lot & the B&W fellow in a wheel chair portrait as well. Great work!

I tried to tone down the post in this one so as not to have a too harsh an image in terms of brightness and contrast.

Steve, another classy blue hour shot. No HDR here?

Some days ago, after rainy and windy weather, the big city atmosphere was reasonably clean, so this shot was possible.

Radio tower bluish lights.


Radio tower with Nikkor 400mm f/5.6 AI EDIF by labecoaves, on Flickr

D7000 + Nikon 400mm f/5.6 AI (narrow collar) EDIF + tripod; ISO 200, f/8 at 5s exposure. Slight 10% crop. This is an effective 600mm FOV in the 1.5x crop sensor of the D7000. The tower was around 4km of distance and the atmosphere was relatively clean for So Paulo city.

That's just perfect Don, I too would like to join the book cover buyers' club

Welcome back Peter. No matter what, it'll still be a joy for us to view your photos. Am looking forward to them. Going on a safari would be a dream come true for me. Perhaps some day

Rafael, aye, that sure is sharp, wow.

Monty: Love the one with Rocky. I too am learning about dog idiosyncrasies. Mine doesn't seem to like ridges on the ground too - metal grates or manhole covers, even textured tiles in repeating patterns may just freak her out

Eric, it can be a bit overwhelming to begin with. I used to leave the house with ideas of capturing all these amazing photos of the people that call Winnipeg home. Then I would tense up and pass by opportunities, only to have the image burned into my memory, and not my memory card.

These missed images would haunt me, I would see them while trying to sleep. I figured that the only way I was going to get some rest was to actually start talking to people.

I still pass things by at times, and kick myself for weeks, especially

Extremely well said Dylan. I think all of us who enjoy street shooting go through similar emotions. I believe you've found a way that is both respectful and engaging, which shows in your photos. You and Monty are really leading the way in this kind of shooting. I appreciate the effort and always enjoy the photos. I'm glad you found us and that you're showing us a part of Canada we haven't seen for some time. Keep em coming!

At first I was VERY intimidated and usually didn't take pictures of people.. I was so afraid. What would they think

Luckily, my daughter encouraged me. Her advice? Just ask them. Simple as that! All they can do is say no. I also try to find something about them to talk about. "WOW! what a cool hat", "Oh my gosh, that is the coolest tattoo I've ever seen!", I try to say it with enthusiasm . Make it sound like you are really into it! The tough part about asking first is that people tend to pose if they know you

More excellent advice. I think having a card is a great idea Monty. I'm going to have some made but I won't use my job title on this thread... Devil's Advocate...

I'm resuming my run through previous pages, but you've added five more since my last post. I may NEVER catch up...

Georg.... I love the dog shots and yes, the bokeh with the 35 f/1.4 wide open can be quite distracting... all depending on the background. At f/2 it sings!

Mike, awesome close-up with the 105 plus tube. Don't forget the Shooting with Tubes thread in the Macro World forum. These are exactly the kind of shots I was looking for when I started that thread.

Monty, I'm loving the photos you're posting on the board with your D600. Between you and Leighton this camera is becoming ever more enticing...

Rafael... we're experiencing the heat in northern California as well. You really give us a sense of what it is like with your recent shots.

Scott.... wonderful Niagara Falls shots with Nikki!

Alan... what a beautiful photo of Nikki with Eli in his backpack. I love the 50-135 f/3.5 AI-s as well. You'll get a great deal of use out of that lens I expect.

Brad, it likely won't be long before you'll get in big trouble sneaking up on Juliana like that... Sweet shot!

Kevin, love the photo of your daughter focusing on her guitar. Very nice composition.

Ron, love the close flower shot with the bee doing it job. Great colors from a great lens.

Jose... it is about time you put the 85 f/1.4 to work! Love the closeup taken with a tube... look how sweet that bokeh is!

Ray, your AI 180 seems up to the task, if I'm to judge by this set of flower photos... beautiful. Tony of long ago said that ED glass was added late in the cycle of AI lenses, so perhaps you got that glass even though it isn't noted on the lens body. Pretty sweet bokeh here...

Matt, that is an awesome portrait of Brandon, you're little sniffer... the glistening eyes and soft bokeh. Which lens? 105 or has the 85 arrived?

Laura, love the wild sun glasses! As Chin said, get the ones with silver on them...

Jeff, your work with the 50 f/1.2 is DELICIOUS! I love this kind of shot...

Don, I'm sorry I haven't been around to applaud the work you've been posting on the thread. I'm a huge fan, as you know. Your shot on 1990 #3 is perfect with its play of light and shadow. That is always a hallmark of your work. The lady walking along the narrow, darkened passage way pulls us into the image. The sliver of the clock at the top does the same. Great work!

Philip, the wires with the spire in the background is wonderful. Great eye and fine execution.

I may actually catch up.... this is through 1990. If everyone would just stop talking for the rest of the day, I might get there...

Now off for a hike before the temperature gets too high. Have fun everyone!

Curtis that was with the 105MM F1.8. My wife just called me to tell me that the 85MM F1.4 just showed up with the Fedex driver! Now I want to go home early and can't!

Jose, love the tower-shot! Amazing clarity for this distance. Did you used View NX for the RAW-conversion? I've found that blue-tones like the ones on the tower aren't easy to get in Adobe Camera Raw (but this could be user-error on my side :-).

Curtis, thanks for your comment on the dog-pictures!

Jeff, I'm glad you like the old-town.

James, Jose, Scott, Monty, Bert, Matt, David - cool that all of you enjoyed this beer with me...

Jose - it's a rather plain B&W-conversion - no soft-focus-filter or something like this. I've tried the Nikon No. 6T close-up-lens with the 105/1.8 and it's some leagues softer than this lens with tubes.

Thanks Curtis, in fact I have to use more the mighty 85mm f/1.4, but too many lenses and too few time left

Thank you Georg. I am not a PP expert like so many others here as Philippe.
Indeed lately I am using View NX 2 to simply convert RAW to TIFF then use PS CS5 to perform some levels or curves/crop/resize/smart sharpen.

This reveals both lens performance and yours good hands.

Strange the 6T close up filter does not worked.
According this resource :

http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography/hardwares/classics/nikonf2/macro/index3a.htm

the 6T has ...Two elements; 2.9 Diopters; 62mm thread mount';This lens is intended for use with telephotos (hence the "T" at the end of the name) but is reputedly excellent with all lenses that it'll fit

Anyway it is good to know.

I shot all of these 3-4 weeks ago, but just now got to imaging them. All of these are the Nikkor 105mm f2.5 ais at f2.5. The thing I find interesting is the variety of bokeh.

Took a little walk around town this morning while at the market. Ray has inspired me to mount the 180mm so I did.

James that is quite a variety of bokeh some remind me of the 50 1.2 and the second one looks like a 35mm1.4
Monty so glad that you got the update to lightroom
Leighton I love the shot with the 180
Curtis thank for the comment on my 180. I really do not think it has ED glass, but I am happy with the way it renders. Especially happy that I traded an extra flash for the lens.
Jose I love the tower shot!
