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!
