Well, Monty, Laura and Georg are the main "culprits" for requesting one more owl shot. At least this time there is a rusty stuff together

Burowing Owl perched in an iron pole of an almost abandoned railroad.

D7000 + Nikkor 400mm f/5.6 AI (narrow tripod collar) EDIF , ISO 200, f/8 at 1/100s, hand held, burst mode to get the less blurred image, ~30% cropped.
The slight yellowish cast is from the late afternoon sun.



I'll happily take the blame!!
Nice!

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 ...

I think we are the resident Series E 50mm shooters here... These shots... My God in Heaven! My jaw drops every time I see them. I so want to know what you did in post on these. Would love to see the original scans to compare with the final rendering. If you wish to take this to PM, I want to pick your brain... From what it looks like though, many are interested in your process.

Today was family picture day. What a wonderful outing:

50-135/3.5 w/beauty dish off camera left


Later as the sun set, the light was changing rapidly, here is the 50/1.2 with a bit softer touch of light from the dish:

Jose, though I haven't commented about your owl shots as they've appeared, my jaw has dropped every time. These are stunning photos. You are a master at this kind of shooting, which, in a way, makes sense given your vocation. You've built a remarkable kit for shooting long and use these lenses about as well as they can be used. Georg observed the wonderful variety of work that appears on this thread and I could agree more. I count that December day almost two years ago when you arrived on this thread as a very good day. I'm so happy you found us and that you've continued to participate in our seemingly never ending conversation...

What a gorgeous photo Alan and what a beautiful family. You caught the perfect light for this shot. The second photo missed the light but it certainly is wonderful to see the three of your together. Your boy is a natural, but then that likely comes from the fact daddy is pointing a lens in his face so often... He's a beautiful boy, who is clearly getting great parenting. You guys are naturals!

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. +1 Agree 100%! Well said!!!! Monty What he said!

Me too. I think even if I had no MF Nikkors, I'd still visit here!

Alan's shot of wife and baby, wonderful light!

John, Having newly been introduced to kittys..I liked "Feline Solitary Confinement"!

Ian, the shot of the lady in the car reminds me so much of my old Tri x days..almost fifty years ago!

Jose, the owl perched on the iron pole is my favorite of the owl photos.

Curtis, it is apparent to me you live in a beautiful area of the country. And photograph it well!

Chuong It's the cheerleader shot for me. Framed perfectly.

To all, thanks for the kind words on my color shots, and thanks to all for the teriffic photos posted here.

Scott, you asked if I had a ride on the Western Maryland Scenic. I've been taking photos of the RR
for about ten years, and traded photos for rides in the cab of the steam locomotive. That was great fun,
but due to less that optimal health, I had to stop. The coal smoke was not good for me, and on a hot day,
the cab of a steam engine is very uncomfortable.

Recently I acquired a very nice 105 2.5 AIs lens from Chuong. I had a learning experience with pay pal and he was very patient with me. Some nice folks on this
thread.
The sky was blue and clear today, after many days of dreary weather. So we, the D200, the 105 and I went for a walk.

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.



I'll join in the praise, Curtis. This is a beautiful, sharp action shot. Those drops of water behind the girl are so sharp! You had great light, hence the nice speed. The other ones were very nice too. I love the conversion to duotone, especially that one of the beach.

Ben,like 1st one, great composition!


thanks Phillippe and Georg

and what's all this mush about Curtis nursing people? he's never nursed me!

oh yeah, sure, he welcomed me in, fed me some guff about how kit building is forever, and before I knew it I'd bought 8 more lenses. 8!!

It's my fault - people were warning me - they even posted pics of devils, but it was too late, like the poor mongoose caught by the cobra's glare, I didn't stand a chance.

So get a grip Georg.......and don't be fooled.

what I will say for Curtis is that his beach series is sensational. He does the odd good flower shot too, oh and some nice pano stitches, and.............
