Rudolph was cruising thru the area today with his harem. I grabbed the 400 3.5 and stuck it on the D800 and no time for a tripod. No post processing other than cropping.

Ok that's cool. Maybe you can talk Curtis into getting one.


I'm saving my money for a D600... There are multiple devils on this thread tempting folks to keep spending money. You are among them Leighton...

Honestly, it doesn't get better than this. Beautiful image. Great capture, processing. Everything works here. Well done.

I like this VERY much, very well exposed.

Your work is consistently of the highest quality Georg. You have the benefit of being a working pro, which means you're using your camera a great deal in circumstances few of us encounter regularly. That you love MF lenses is like frosting on the cake. I always enjoy what you bring to the board. It is invariably inspiring.

I think I'd better post a photo, lest people think I gave up on photography...

Sue and I drove out to Limantour Beach on Drake's Bay on what was a perfect day for a walk in the beach. Here are are a few shots. The first was taken with the 35 f/1.4 AI-s. The second with the 180 f/2.8 AI-s. Both were converted to BW in Lightroom 4.



Here is a wide panorama of the beach taken with the 85 f/1.4 AI-s.


And this is one of my favorites from the day... kids were having a delightful time playing at the edge of the water. In this case mom was trying to capture her daughter try to dodge the water. I shot this with the 180 f/2.8 AI-s. As Dean mentioned, trying to capture fast moving subjects with an MF lens is definitely a challenge. I tossed away quite a few images...

Hi all,

In answer to the "is it posed" question, the answer is largely yes. She is a model but of course we couldn't talk clearly through a Rolls Royce window so I gave her some idea of the feeling I wanted and we shot a range of poses. Here's another ...

And here is another girl dashing toward the water... shot with the 180 f/2.8 AI-s.


These girls didn't seem to be building a structure but rather an art form, creating a perfect circle in the sand. Shot also with the 180 f/2.8 AI-s.


As we were leaving the beach I had to take one final shot with the 180.


This shot gives a sense of the setting... taken with the 35 f/1.4 AI-s.

Super photo! Whether posed or not, it's beautifully converted, and a great expression. Very nice work!

Here's a little D200 love, near the last of color at my home, all about a week ago

Nice work, Ed. I love the second one. The third one makes me a bit 'dizzy', as if it is rotated.
I'm glad you were lucky with Sandy. What a difference after that hurricane.

Another excellent shot. I think you need to tell us a bit more about yourself Ian. Most of us at one time or another have introduced ourselves more fully. As a matter of fact, I believe Monty has collected those comments, though I'm not exactly sure how to access them. The fact that you're using a model for some of your shooting suggests you have a bit more than the casual amateurs' approach to photography. We know that Georg and Matt are both pros, as is James Markus. We know Leighton has a farm in the Shenandoah Valley, that Alan is a teacher in Texas, that John has a consulting business in Seattle... If you'd care to introduce yourself more fully, it would be welcomed. And please don't tell your daughter about my faux pas...

By the way, this is a photo of Leo that I thought looks like your daughter...

Great photos Curtis, Love the last one, brilliant timing. In your first 3 shots there is somone in each pic pointing out to the ocean - leaves me with a feeling that we (the viewers) are missing something.

Not sure I can keep up with this thread! ;-) So many great additions since I was last here. Too many to mention but Ian's portrait in the car is particularly striking I think...

These are great photos, Ian. Reminds me of 1930-1940s London.

Keep posting, your work is fabulous!

Thanks everyone, was surprisingly easy to get her at that position. 5 minutes. Was expecting more than a half hour

Stacked a couple of shots for this but I think I may have missed a slice, what with trying to shoot with one hand
She broke free from my wife's hands to sneak a peek at me
45PCE + diffused flash

it's a great shot Chin - but I'm starting to worry about her - you and your wife are holding her down? lol.....she's going to run as soon as she sees you reach for the camera.

Curtis, are you listening

Leighton and Ben, to tell you the truth, I don't think Curtis will buy a DX camera, not even when Ben tries to persuade him....



Leighton, Rinie .....stop.... .... I'm not urging anyone to buy anything.
I bought it out of curiosity. But Curtis can't buy any cams - have you seen how many lenses he's bought lately? He posted the pic of the 50 f2HC just a few pages back.

Well the twins arrived today from Florida. While you all were sound asleep I was busy keeping my eye on the buy and sell. Only Curtis spotted them but way after the fact. Well at least I saved you all some money!

Curtis, thank you for your kind words and for creating (and "nursing", I hope that's the proper term) this thread!
It's really great to see the wide variety of pictures taken all over the world with classic MF-Nikkors. It's a lovely place to share thoughts about and experiences with, pictures of and taken with MF-Nikkors. I really like the tone here - friendly and helpful, not the name-calling and bashing that seems to be usual today.
Thank you, Georg.
