I remember trying to get the most resolution and sharpness by using Panatomic-X and developing it in Microdol-X; and it still was not as good as now. Those were the days!
Ha! How well I remember that..what fun it was! Feeding film into a stainless steel reel at 12 midnight having to get up at 6am and go to work..but boy, was it fun!

Leighton, we are just 70 miles from Winchester, Va, which I think is at the northern most part of the great Shenandoah Valley. Love what you are doing with the D600.

Monty, the 16mm shots of the playground..wonderful. I think the D600 is going to be popular for a long, long time.

All, you have put up some really nice images, and I thank those kind enough to give mine a good word.

This is great fun, isn't it!

Ed

Well I guess since we are on page 2000 and 39999 posts, I'll add 40000 and tell Curtis congrats!

Wow! I went to bed last night with the thread almost twenty posts from turning over the tripometer... And arrive to find the thread well past that milestone. Glad you got the big 40,000 Matt! You've become "one of the guys" who makes this thread work so well. both with your outstanding photos and your gentle spirit. We probably should thank Brandon for that as well.

So a bit of reflection.... I posted this on the second anniversary of this thread...

1-10,000 - 443 days
10,001-20,000 - 155 days
20,001-30,000 - 92 days
30,001-34,500 - 40 days


In point of fact, we went from 30,001 to 40,000 in 83 days! This thread really is crazy, as I'm finding out trying to catch up after a few days absence. I hate to think what will happen when I'm in Florida for six days. So many new participants who seem to have been infected with MFNAS (Manual Focus Nikon Axquisition Syndrome.) Welcome Jimmy... I'm sure Chin would be happy to meet another participant from Singapore.

I have the feeling that the trip to 50,000 will be equally pleasurable... so keep the photos coming. For those newcomers interested, if you go back to a few days before and after August 22 on this thread, you'll find biographies for quite a few participants. If you'd care to introduce yourself more fully you're welcome to do so. As you've found, this is a friendly group of people from around the world who are generous in their support. This is a great place to hang out and everyone can blame me...

Thank you to all of you who sent good wishes and a welcome back. I really appreciate the friends I've made here - Monty, they aren't "imaginary" at all!

Jimmy, a warm welcome to you - I'm sure you'll be very happy here but you WILL spend money!

Leighton, the cemetery at the church looks really interesting being so close to the structure itself and that walkway. I'm guessing those are quite old grave sites?

Also, after your shots looked so good the other day, I decided I had to mount my copy of the NIKKOR*ED 180mm f/2.8 AI-s on my camera for the walk to work today. Fall is definitely in the air, summer's exuberance is waning, and this scene caught my eye. Wide open on my D700.

I definitely need to get more comfortable with this focal length because the way it draws and the sharpness of the images (even wide open!) is just fantastic.

Ed: Great images with the 50. Goes to show you don't need to spend $1800 bucks on a 14-24 to get great landscape pictures.

Monty: Images with the 16 are really nice. I am surprised that it even works after the neglect it has suffered in the last several weeks. Maybe you really should send it to Leighton for some TLC. By the way Leighton has blown past you in thread count!!!

Raboof: Glad Nikki arrived safely and I am sure your pics with it will be outstanding.

Scott: Great images with Nikki

Leighton: Your really making that D600 sing and me thinks you will now be an FX man at heart

No time for images! It is stink bug invasion time here. You walk outside and they are on your lens and camera in seconds. Praying for colder weather.

Thanks Chuong!

And for something a little less heavy, last night after getting Margot to sleep I ran over to the local brewpub for a drink with a friend who is in town. 50mm f/1.2 AI-s, also wide open. (Sometimes I wonder if my lenses should even have iris diaphragms. )

With lots of idle time I managed to get PSE 6 working on my laptop again and have had some time to review and edit some of my Kruger Park images.

To give some perspective on the park it is about 350 km long with an average width of about 50 km. The eastern boundary borders Mozambique and the ecozones vary considerably from tall trees in thick bush, through scrub on a shallow granite soil base, to subtropical riverine forest.

The total area is 19450 sq km (about the area of New Jersey).I had the 300 4.5 IF on all the time and even though I was often too close to get most of the animal in the frame.However the park is so dusty to be constantly changing glass is to court serious dust bunnies.

The first 4 are to give a general impression of the park and to indicate why it supports the greatest animal diversity in Africa - also why if you see something it is the luck of the draw.
