Monty, this is very sad, both for your Uncle but equally so for you seeing as how close you are. It is nice that he has such wonderful relatives around him at this point in time. All to the best to you and the family ... you are a good man, Monty.

Perhaps UC can remember some older stories, and share them with Nancy and you. My mom (94+ years old) was complaining to me Monday how her short term memory is going. I suggested we talk about the past...it was a very good conversation. I like the photo, Monty!

Nancy has been going to EverGreen Care Center. She writes out the checks and UC (Uncle Cork) signs them. (I'm the POA, but it hasn't gotten to that point yet)

I see a couple of you are now rocking the new 600's! Very cool. Actually mounted some MF glass for the first time in over a month. We FINALLY got a break in the heat and of course it brought a little weather with it. Both shots are panoramas, done with the 105 1.8.


Nice shots, tony. Great to see you back on the thread

I went out to the Circle B Ranch today with my D7000 and the 300mm 4.5 EDIF I am so used to shooting long I am not even sure I could switch to full frame even if I wanted too.


Ray, these are really fine shots. The third one is excellent. Well done.

Leighton ... somehow you always nail the expression perfectly with this shot being another example. Great shot and perfect lens selection

The lens is so sharp at 2.5 it's hard to use any other aperture. With this lens at 2.5 it's almost like magic in that it renders the background at 2.5 and the subject at 5.6 or something.

Brad, I normally use a Photoclam head, but the lens plate did not arrive today as expected so I used what I had. Hopefully we'll have a calm weekend soon, you could have some fun with this on your new D600.


Monty,
That first shot of the market is chilling and the tonal range is perfect to my eyes.


Here's another shot. The sun was setting behind clouds and for about 3 minutes, the lit up peaks of clouds were dazzling in their color. My little man was sleeping so I only took out the D700+300/2.8 and had to shoot f/2.8, ISO1600 1/200 or 1/250 to get this shot:

Some additioal extreme macro experiences with the caterpillar found yesterday.

One lateral view with a reversed wide angle and two with the "poor man 200mm micro"

The catterpillar's head is just ~3mm diameter and body is ~5mm wide.

Focusing at these extreme magnifications is best using Live View and the focusing rail is almost mandatory.

Reversed 28mm:

Love this picture Monty, it's quite symbolic, the past on the left, present in the middle and the future (door, closing or opening?) on the right.

I like this one

http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/929565/2051#11039291

a lot too, looks like the 85mm f/1.4 and D600 have inspired your work a lot during the last weeks.

Thanks Dean, and you're right about the 105 being so sharp wide open. I'm finding that I achieve better focus with more of my shots with the D600 then I did with the D7000. I'm attributing it to the better viewfinder.
