Interesting series, Georg...I really like it!

Some pictures from this night, taken for a small local paper - the tram here had to replace one of many switches. This kind of action is usually done at night to keep the traffic obstruction down to a minimum.

Great use of the 85PCE, georg!

Scrubbing off all the mud away with a stiff-bristled brush, was struck by the amazing redness underneath. Brought it to the kitchen window and grabbed the camera

James, thanks a bunch - I'm glad you like it.

Ray, Mark, Monty, Philippe and Leighton - thanks for your kind words about the pilot-image. It was shot from the beach (not from a rolling and pitching boat, that's just not possible with a long lens), the wind strength was about 6-7 Beaufort - not a storm already.
The pilots and their skippers are really tough guys, they go out in almost every weather. Only the sea rescuers go out in every weather.

Samy, thanks for your comments on the owls;

Ray, another killer shot of old cabin + fall colours with the 16/3.5;

Leighton and Rafael, amazing bokeh playing with the 50/1.2 and 105/2.5;

I don't even like pictures like this. IT was taken in full sun. It didn't look good in full color, it didn't look good in b/w so I split the difference...

John, exceptional landscape-work! Carrying the 400mm was well worth the effort. The "compressed craters" has magazine-quality.

Eric, beautifully done orchid! I'm really sorry for my impolite comment on the lovely portrait of your daughter.

Mark, I hope to recover soon to be able to walk to your favorite spot again - it's a beautiful place in every weather.

Nancy, excellent close-ups! The 75-150 and the D200 team up nicely in your hands (sorry for my helpless English).

Leighton, you seem to re-discover all your lenses on the D600 now and I really enjoy looking at this process. The bokeh-play-shots are awesome & the horse-portrait is absolutely outstanding.

Rafael, congrats to your pristine 55/1.2. A former Marine-corps-Nikkor is really something very special. The portrait of the lady with fan is movie-like - great work!

Ray, excellent images from your smokeys-trip! Love the pale winter-landscape and the historic cabin as well.

Curtis, love your bokeh-play with the 180/2.8!

Ian, I like your great in every way landscapes a lot.

Philippe, excellent snaps (in the best sense) of the gentleman in the Super-7!

Samy, great action from the soccer field! Choosing the right lens for field-sports like football, soccer and the like is always tricky. Most sideline-shooters here are working with two cameras - one with a 300, 400 or even 500mm lens and the other one with a 70-200. Manual lenses are a rare sight now at the sidelines, but from time to time somebody shows up with unusual camera-lens-combinations (I remember a Nikkor 500/4P on a Canon-body for example).

Couple more "Free-lens, Reverse Macro" shots... Series E 50mm f/1.8

This first one is a rose that is about the size of the first digit on a mans thumb. It was in a wreath celebrating the life of a young woman that lost her battle with breast cancer. She loved the mini roses, and these grew outside of her window at home.

The wreath was in a dimly lit area on stage at church the following day. (ISO6400)


Celebrating Life by Kevin.Woodard, on Flickr

These little flowers are about an inch and a half in diameter. They have the coolest little stamens that I tried to capture. I shot at f/4, probably should have shot at f/11 or smaller... (minimal adjustments to these in post, btw)


Vibrance by Kevin.Woodard, on Flickr

100% crop of the above... I think the D7k has the best Dx sensor out there.
