I've seen those as well and wondered. But my Nikon knowledge isn't deep enough to know. I'm still learning AI and AIS lenses and all those crazy ones before!

I only moved to Nikon professionally in 2010. And only started with MF lenses after I found this thread! Darn you Curtis!

Home again after my weekend in Dallas, trying to go through about 5000 or so shots to pick out a few nice ones. Skies were against us though, gray overcast, low ceiling on Saturday, along with a 30 drop in temperatures between Friday and Saturday. All the shots were with AF lenses though, so I won't post them here. You'll find them in the Mustang thread

Laura I went through that thread and looked at some of your work! Amazing stuff! How do you possibly keep up with two very fast moving threads and all the other stuff you have on your plate?

Which lenses did you shoot those with?

Beautiful shot Brock but unfortunately, you missed the fact this thread is for Nikon manual focus lenses mounted on Nikon cameras. As wonderful a camera as the Canon 5D may be, it isn't a Nikon camera, so I would respectfully ask that you not post on this thread until you've picked up that D600 you've been thinking about... Of course, a D700, D3s, D3 or D4 would work as well. Even a D7000 would work. Hope you understand.

We are SO GLAD you found us Matt. You're an excellent photographer and even a better person. I'm delighted you participate in this seemingly never ending conversation.

I've never thought too highly of my own work. While I enjoy it myself, I never thought it would appeal to an audience broad enough to justify publication. Thank you very much for your encouragment. I think Leighton was the first to say that I should start thinking of a book, and a few people have repeated it since, and now you. I am going to start looking at what I do in a different light. Maybe there is an audience...if so, I would have never known if it weren't for the fantastic people in this thread.

Here is a Brenizer method pano of my wife's graduation picture back in May. I don't recall how many shots I stitched together with a 180/2.8.



Very nice example of this technique, Alan! I'm still struggling with the stitching-process.

Peter, thank you for the kind comments - much appreciated!
I wholeheartedly agree with your findings about the lock - I wish a nice old-fashioned padlock (maybe one of those with a "double-bearded key") was on the barn door. The phillips-screw is ugly as well (hell?). I just don't like to clone things like that out - it's not a perfect world I point my lenses on
A sidenote: When I shoot film I already feel like cheating when I adjust curves or dodge and burn in Photoshop, but I never feel these constraints when working with files out of a digital camera ...

My friend is letting me borrow this non-AI 16mm fisheye until she gets around to putting it up on Ebay. I took this picture this weekend with it at Fossil Rim Wildlife Center outside of Glenrose, TX:

Congrats Tony and Matt for your new 180/2.8 and 35/1.4.

Brad, nice and fun perspective with the 16mm.
Is it the f/3.5 or f/2.8 version?

Hey everyone - life has been far too busy lately, but I've had some time to lurk and enjoy the ongoing great photographs for the last several months. I finally had a few moments to sit down and go through some pics. Here are a few from the recent Canadian Thanksgiving weekend at our new farm.

1) Carriage house renos are nearing completion! (16/3.5 fish)







2) Mostly hand tools, the "old world" style of building. (105/2.5)






3) My daughter having a tea party with her dolls on Thanksgiving day, enjoying a bit of fall sun. (28/2.8)







4) The whole family present for an evening bonfire after the turkey feast. (16/3.5)





5) My son playing with the bonfire. Boys playing with fire are about as happy as they can get! (16/3.5)

Still being unemployed helps to keep up. I lost four days of this thread though, so that means there's probably 40 or so pages to catch up on, or not. I now need to replace my heater as well, so while they're performing that bit of surgery, I'm having the central a/c put back in, we'd had the coils taken out since it wasn't working and the coils had been jammed with dog and cat fur over the years from before we bought the house.

I used either the 70-200 VRII or 200-400 VRI, rented in Dallas, to get those shots. I have to send my D300s to have it fixed though, focusing went wonky on me and became totally undependable, I'd have been really ticked if it was the only camera I brought with me... I've got the form for APS downloaded, just need to fill in, print, and send.

The 105 f/2.5 did travel with me, just never made it out of the bag.

Bmwrider, nice set with 16/3.5;
I liked the most the bonfire shots, they look like almost rectilinear. Did you use a DX body?

AdoramaPix and MPIX also do photo books. I used Adorama to do a photo book to give my kids, and my grandkids a copy of photos of Grandpa and them doing things. Came out pretty nice, and you can sign up for their sales promotions. Print up a few, and show it around, bet you'll be surprised.
