Rafael, those details on the lady's fan are exquisite.

I am going to do two final postings from the day of the dead celebration last week. The discussion on 55mm 1.2 is getting tired, but I just can't help it. I had the lens on the D3 and want to show one more time why I love using it. You can go from wide open special look with excellent sharpness in the curved plane of focus to closed down sharpness, like this:

Open at f/2.0 a quick window light grab with some post processing to expand the look:

Puddlejumper by Ian_Boys, on Flickr



Reminds me of one of HCB's photos of the guy jump across the large puddle. I love it.

Philippe, is that a huge fine the driver is looking at on the cop's notebook? I get the feeling he is really unhappy about something That's quite a moment to capture.

Of course here across the pond I would never point a camera anywhere in a direction where a cop (or traffic cop for that matter) might be.

Monty, great B&W with Nikki - #13 and #14 are my favs.

Ian, love the puddlejumper! The portrait of Faye is beautifully done too.

Philip, lovely portrait of Marg!

Ron I really like the "Blue Heron"!

Charlie, very nice work! The canadian ketch is my favorite (I have a weak spot for wooden boats) - beautifully taken!

Alan, the light-filled portrait of your son is great!

Dean, awesome images from Cambodia! The last two shots are my favs - outstanding work!

Chin, love your always surprising work! The "strobed" poodle is nothing short of spectacular.

Americo, love your cat-portrait! Great job on the light - it makes Luna Bleu look really mysterious.

Abram, "Caring" is a stellar photograph, wonderfully done. Welcome!

Kevin, I really like the free-lensed rose.

Jose, fantastic owl-portrait! Well worth crawling at the ground in my opinion (your knees and elbows are probably scratched, not mine Thanks for sharing!

Leighton:
While traveling in Pennsylvania this past weekend, I saw this special shipment heading south. Did you order these? If not then Christmas is coming early for you! I believe you mentioned that you prefer your tractors to be green. I could not pass up stopping to take these images. Taken with the 35 2.0 Ai.

2 degrees of tilt on this one (I think this is halfway proper use of the lens :-)


Georg: I really like your image. What I found interesting is the craftsmanship in the figure. Here is an image I took of an antique weathervane (horse jockey) earlier this year that looks to have been made by same artisan. Taken with the 50 1.4 Ais. My b&w conversion is nowhere near as nice as yours.

Thanks everyone
I stuffed her 'bone' inside the washer-dryer along with 3 SB-R200s and waited for her to look at it
She's trained to be attentive and will look at us instead for cues. But the power of treats will naturally prevail
Low pulse and brought back higher in post, wasn't sure how she'd react to strobing
Kitchen has a red overhead light, the original looks rather spooky

Hi Scott, indeed, the similarity is striking. But I'm pretty sure the artist who created "my" sculpture isn't the creator of "your" weathervane too. I like your image a lot - nice DoF and a great B&W-conversion.
I have the highest respect for sculptors and really enjoy looking at their work.

Thank you Monty, John, Americo, Charlie, Laura, Chin, Mark, Scott, Rinie and Georg for the too kind comments.

I promise this will be the last owl's photo for some time

Another individual of the Burrowing owl under very late afternoon light:

Oh before I forget, that was an excellent capture Philippe, the one with the Caterham driver
I winced looking at it once I read the caption, even before looking at the photo in its entirety
Am guessing that's an almost universal reaction
Though I must admit, I've never had a speeding ticket before...

And yes, thanks for posting your workflow Monty. I went to check out 'Detail Extractor' at home and realised I only have Color Efex Pro 3. Has it been that long since I last purchased it? Bleah
I do use Tonal Contrast often though, just a low pass with minimal settings lest it looks overcooked
What I love about Color Efex is that the output will be in a layer, so I can add a layer mask and start brushing away the parts I don't want affected - usually the out-of-focus areas in the background

Ray, simply spetacular set; for me all exceptional. Which lens(es)? 16/3.5 on D7000?

Kevin, fantastic flower set with reversed 50/1.8 E;

Charlie, loved your sets with the 100-300 and the 300/4.5, mostly the marmot, flowers and dragonfly;

Ron, beautiful bluish Heron with 400/3.5;

Monty, another great Rocky set with Nikki, I liked particularly the "red alert"

Dean, the two last images of your Cambodia set are poignant;

Georg, as usual great B&W conversions.
