Philippe, Romanian people would like to offer for free our president Traian Băsescu as a gift to France! He is a bold man, good friend with Angela Merkel! As a bonus I'll give you a nice fast lens... maybe my Nocton

Very nice. My eyes are drawn right to his face! Nice focus.
Is he making that animal thing?

Thanks Georg, my, what a memory on my previous shot with the 180mm!

This was with the 50-135mm., but I'm not sure at what FL I shot it. I'm curious, where are you seeing the distortion?


Leighton, I hope you don't mind this quick and dirty comparison based on your fine picture:







this was done with the lens-correction-tool in PS

Leighton, that's a very nice view on the main street. Somehow I prefer this shot over your former images of this street, taken with a longer lens. The pictures taken with the 180 (if memory serves) were much more atmospheric, but the one above is very natural looking.
Which of your zooms did you used for this one? I see quite a bit of distortion (no offense meant).

edit: the EXIF-infos fooled me - was the street done with the long end of your 50-135?
The B&W is great too - very nice tonality and crisp detail.

No, I don't mind at all! Thank you, I'll go back to LR and fix it. This is one of the great things about this thread, helping each other out.

What a terrific portrait Georg. I love your post work and the sharpness of the image!

Thanks! No, the goat needs a stronger baseplate (too much kiddos riding the goat) and he will add some extra metal underneath the existing plate.
Btw, many sculptures like this, but also earthwires, ribbon rails, cables out of wind power plants, even church bells have been stolen here at the last years - the metal-prices are high and tempting for thieves.

Leighton, I believe your earlier take on this street was b&w and there were a lot fewer cars. The colors and the row of parked cars add a different perspective to the scenic street, very nice.

A two in one post!

Jose, love those burrowing owls. I will never get tired of looking at bird images, including those of owls.

Americo, very nice capture of your cat!

Ray, thank you! Actually the focus is a bit in front of his face, but I was surprised to see that I could read the label at the forklifter. The 55/1.2 is lacking contrast at wider apertures, but the sharpness isn't too shabby. I like this lens :-)

Monty, there's no need for correcting anything with most lenses (especially primes) and most subjects. But scenes like Leighton's wonderful main street are a hard task in terms of distortion for many zooms.

This shot taken a few weeks ago, hiking north of Phoenix and this impressive rock formation appeared. Just captured my interest. Taken mid morning with the sun just hitting the peaks. Note the round cactus growing at the top of the formation 2/3 to the right.

Taken with the 180mm f2.8 lens.

This could very well be one of the small towns around here! I love it. I'd love to visit and walk down that place. Someday I'll drive the family over and hopefully you can show us around.

Nikki and candle light.
You may not believe it possible for me, but there is NO post processing on this one!
You know when I have time I will be fiddling with it. The party is still in progress, but I was so happy with this picture I wanted to share it.

Back to the party

Rinie, thank you for this, I'll have to bookmark it.


Great service to the thread Rinie. Thanks so much for this. Now, perhaps we need a website where we could feature these bios...
