This shot reminds me of the 60's at Cape Canaveral watching the lunch of a Saturn 5....
I don't know why...... Looks like the press, a wife and son of an astronaut...
I like it.

One more experiment with reversing a wide angle to get extreme macro, this time a magnification of 2.2 (x 1.5 crop factor = 3.3). All shots of the flower were with D7000 + BR2A reversing ring + Nikkor 28mm f/2 AI + tripod, ISO 100, f/11 at 1/2s.

A single shot at f/11, note the thin DOF:

Inspired by James, this is a 4 focus stacked images, all at f/11:

And finally for those interested, the setup:

From left to right:
5mm diameter flower, Vivitar 12mm tube (just for protection of the exposed lens rear), Nikkor 28mm f/2 AI, BR2A reversing ring, D7000 + focusing rail + tripod.
Shot with a D3 + 105mm f/2.8 AI-S micro, ISO 3200, f/5.6 at 1/160s.

Great B&W, Monty!

Jon, stitching pictures of an animal is a really cool idea! Most creatures over here are too fast for this :-)

Curtis, the perspective on the watchers-shot is fantastic! That's a really great capture.

Philippe, the pictures of your (?) beautiful garden are excellent. Is there a garden-architect in your family? Your daughters have a really cool place to "hang out".

Jose, thanks for sharing the link about the BR2A - I have used my old BR2 already a lot with AF-bodies with no problems so far

Thanks for your comments on the church-images and the tunnel-picture!

Leighton, in my experience the 28/2 will deliver a less dramatic background compared to the 35/1.4.
Unsharp highlights in the corners will rendered as triangles with the 28/2, while the 35/1.4 shows more coma over the whole field (at least wide open).

Peter, the churches over here are not that much frequented (except on holidays like christmas). Here in Eastgermany more and more families are getting closer to the church parishes again because many children of "middleclass"-families (I hate this term) are going into newly-founded christian schools.
"Freistühle" stands for "unreserved" indeed - but these letters are probably about 100 years old or even older.

been away for a few days and this thread had gone wild. Fantastic pics - too many to comment on them all -

Georg - love the tunnel shot
Leighton - love the road shots, haven't seen you do that before, they are great
Dylan - beautiful street shots with the 55mm f1.2SC. I know how hard it is to get those pics with the 55mm. And I'm so glad someone else is promoting it - it's so underrated.

I haven't got anything - but here's a couple from yesterday with the 55 - it was statue day

Jon - I like the first one with the "buddies" sunning themselves. The second one is very nice as well.

Monty - Good shot, looks like one Matt would have taken with the newspaper.

Jose - Thanks for showing your rig, quite impressive micros once you see the set up.

Ben - Thanks. I love this set, something a little different from you as well.

Mike - Cool shot, now let's see what's cooking!

Georg - Lovely reflection shot, I need to try this more. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Monty! These guys have been known to consume a dog or two each year.....

Well Done, Jose! I use the BR3 for protecting the rear element...just another excuse to have one more finely machined Nikon thing-a-ma-bob - plus, you can mount filters to it...

Here are some of my first images from Nikki. We took the train to a pumpkin patch this morning. A few cousins came with us. Had a great time with Nikki but wish I had more time to shoot.

WOW Curtis, I LOVE this shot! However did you get such a good perspective? Oh...and thanks for blurring the Canon.


I was at the bottom of stairs and the boy was at the top. Here you'll get a clearer sense... The 300 was perfect for these conditions.

And this is what they were all watching... jets doing acrobatics to entertain the crowd in San Francisco and around the bay.
