Mike, Philippe, Peter, Mihai - thanks for your comments on the B&W-sculptures!
Here's another picture taken today with the PC-lens:

I have so much to learn about "good" use of this lens and it's amazing capabilities.

I love your night shots you did for the paper, did they use publish them in B&W?


Thank you, Leighton! No, close to 100 percent of the pictures I take for papers these days are published in color. Maybe that's why I love to play with B&W so much. Here's the color-version of the published night-shot:

Simply amazing shot. Wish I could get that kind of shot of my girls . . . .

Once again Monty has shown us his great eye for a photo and his skill at tripping the shutter at just the right moment.

Great shot, Leighton ... I love these portraits of musicians you do. Very nicely captured again.

Curtis - thanks for clearing up my confusion on the 55/1.2's. Much appreciated. I didn't know about the photosynthesis site - good resource! Nice cat shots also.

I really liked the tram rebuild pics in the last few pages, the PC shot of the boat, and especially that lovely shot of Ian's daughter. That's one of my favourites in the last many pages (especially given that I'm shooting my young children mostly at this time in my/their lives, so that's the headspace I'm in - kid portraits). Timeless shot.

Thanks Ray, Peter, Mihai, Tony, Georg & Leighton for the nice comments.

Peter - I am not sure if that is the monkey god, Hanuman. I have lots of notes I need to check when I get home and organise everything. The image you mentioned was a particularly amazing spot though ... like being transported back in time 1000 years. We stayed for around 20 mins just staring at these statues against the temple backdrop.

Here's a quickie from Angkor Wat this morning. I set my alarm for 3:45am but it never went off as it was under "weekdays" and today is Sunday !! Ended up waking up by chance at 4:45 and raced down to catch some morning light. It's hard to describe how beautiful this place is.

Nancy, it is a delight to have a pro share work on the thread. Georg has been entertaining us for quite some time, as has Matt. But Matt generally shoots with AF gear, so it is his personal work he shares with us. Georg is up to his eyebrows in MF Nikkor lenses, so wherever he is, he tends to find time to do a bit of work that is suitable for this thread. Now you and Lizze have arrived, increasing our quotient of working pros dramatically. I'm very glad you found us and hope you'll continue to share your

That's Fuji film in a Nikon camera! Most likely F90x, unless I used the old F3 or 8008. And I haven't been a working pro in a while. I have a real job now.

Welcome to Ian! Lovely shots on the many pages since just this morning. Um.. Monty.. just out of curiosity on the Pure Pleasure photo, how many people do you know that have gone to their Facebook paged and liked them? (And I'd hate to be living in the apartments above there, too!)

More with the trusty Series E 50mm f1.8. This time did a little "Free-Lensing, Reverse Macro" (holding the lens backwards in front of the lens mount, tilting slightly to achieve the desired focal plane).

This is maybe a 20% crop, I am about 3 inches away. Little guy flew into the shot.

The color/dots are about 1/16 of an inch below a clear acrylic coating. This is NOT a crop, the ball is about 1.25" in diameter...

What do you all think?

You are studying the photos too closely. That is one Facebook page I am not going anywhere near

Monty, that is what I am talking about. I would like to know your method for converting to B&W. Is it posted somewhere here in the 2150+ pages? Ot a trade secret?! ;-)

Jose, amazing birds. Love the owls. We saw some that looked a bit like that in Botswana.

Chin, yet more praise for the water chestnuts.

Bert, great shots of a happy ending.

Excellent portrait Leighton... this guy looks like a younger Nick Nolte...


Was Nick Nolte ever young? Rhetorical question, I know. Good portrait.

Ian, great kid shot! Wow. Welcome.

Ray, gorgeous work in the Great Smoky Mountains. Have to see that someday.

Phillipe, the lemurs are beautiful! Well seen.

Monty, love the dachshund. Perfect. And the coffee shop window!

Rinie, beautiful portrait of the little girl. Her parents will treasure this. One day, she will too.

Curtis, hooray for cats! They're my other favorite subject (you stand warned).

Dean, I look forward to seeing more from Angkor Wat.

Ding ding ding! We have a correct answer! Perhaps my caption was a little unclear. I've already left off some of my favorite gym pics because they were AF (pardon my language! ) or not Nikon (those other guys that focused the right way). I shoot with all sorts of lenses, but have the most fun with the old MF glass. That's why I'm glad I came here.
