Both of these were from the same train car. Again with the 50mm f1.2 ais.

Thanks, that's interesting. I know every time I think I don't need mine, I'll take it out and I instantly change my mind.

As far as the FL is concerned, I have it covered with the 28-50mm f3.8, the 50-135mm f3.5 and the 55mm f2.8 micro. But there's just something about the color and contrast output that sets this apart from those.


Absolutely, Leighton. The 50 f/1.2 is a magical lens and I fully agree that it has some qualities that the rest of my lenses don't.

Here's one from the Rolous Group, Cambodia taken with the 50mm.

Thanks Curtis - good to have you back.

You know, looking at your re-post of my image I realized that you can see Ursa Major (big dipper) in the upper left as well as Cassiopeia I believe up at the top. Probably more constellations as well. Hmm - never know what you'll find in an image if you eventually look closely enough.

John,
You may have missed my earlier comment

Or maybe you're just ignoring it
There is a lot of information in the picture!

I just plain missed your earlier comment - by the time I sometimes make a response to a post 5 more posts have happened!

I'd never ignore your posts Monty

leighton,

i had the 50 f2 and it was wonderful. But, I didnt get the bokeh I was looking for. The planar is ok, but I don't lik ethe busy bokeh and it slightly soft as well. The Nikon 50 1.2 has a little less contrast thant the Zeiss but overall it renders much nicer images for my taste. needles to sat at f2 or 2.8 it rocks and incredibly sharp not to mention build quality. I have often thought of buying another one just in case they become really hard to get one day.

So here is MY favorite from the photo shoot on Saturday. Again, focusing in manual mode got me in trouble when we were moving in and out of shadows outside. Again the image was over-exposed. But I like how it came out. This was a spontaneous shot with wind blowing my friend's hair. I shot as she lifted her hand to smooth it out. Shot with the 105 f/1.8 AI-s which was the only lens I used.

I've known Marilynne for 23 years. She is a dear friend.


That's a great shot !!! The hand movement and over-exposure enhance the whole image. It looks as though she is passionately trying to explain a view on something.

Just how sharp is the 35mm 1.4 ais? Here are two shots neither have been edited and are straight out of the D7000. The both taken at F2.8 the second is a 100% crop of that photo. Needless to say I am thrilled with this beauty!

Glad to see you back on the thread Curtis, and with lovely shots to boot! I'll keep the 105 f/1.8 AI-s love going with a wide open shot of some bare branches.

Leighton & Ray ... thank you both so much. Leighton, I would love you to come along !!

Yes, Ray ... I was really over-awed by this part of Cambodia. It's simply amazing we can walk through time in this part of the world ... crawling through temple ruins left by an advanced civilisation 1000 years ago ... in my books this is the best that it gets

I am trying to sequentially go through my 1000's of images so you are going to have to put up with many more from this trip

Peter, thanks! Love your beachscapes, especially the last two panos.

Kevin, I really like your macro-work.

James, interesting takes on the knob. Love the diagonal highlight/reflection on the B&W-shot - perfect!

Chin, your recent dog-shots are amazing. Is a calendar with dog-portraits in the making?

Monty, congrats to your 55/1.2 Ai!

Curtis, excellent portraits! The over-exposed harbor-shot looks pretty cool. Honestly - print it as large as possible, hang it on a wall and you will hear a lot of "Wow's" from people who don't think in f-stops and ISO-numbers. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Philippe, the 50/1.8 works a charm in your hands. Love the traffic-signs in french colors :-)

Leighton, very nice bench-shots! The edged benches work great together with the rounded fence-shadows.
I like the second train-detail a lot - perfectly framed and the colors go very well together with the worn paint.

Jorge, great stuff! Love the carrousel-shot, excellent way to use motion-blur.

Ray and Leighton - regarding the 9 aperture-blades: no one will notice the number of aperture-blades if the lens is used strictly for wide-open shots ;-)
A fellow photographer here asked me on what occasion I lost all of my aperture-blades...

Ray, the 35/1.4 seems to work very nicely on your D7000.

Thanks to anyone who commented on the tilted ship - much appreciated!

Long-gone civilizations have something magical to it and your pictures illustrates this in a beautiful way.

For those interested in a 200/4 AI, here is one on ebay that is mislabeled. It's probably worth a shot:

I need to stuff a bag full of MF lenses and get out, away from computers and everything. Hmmm... where to go....

Thanks everyone, I gotta start thinking of what else I've got in the kitchen for the doggy to pose with...

That's quite ingenious James, I didn't catch it until Leighton posted about it. Had me stumped all the way to work when I read it this morning, my mind crafting all sorts of (im)probable solutions. My best guess was a fibre optic cable (like a TOSLINK cable) snooted at one end with a flash, with the other pin point end directed at the bottom of the knob. Embarrassed now, oh Occam's razor

Dean: I think you've been around SE Asia more than I have! In a reversal, I'm planning for a trip down to Adelaide and SA next May
Anyway the ruins are amazing, some may find them creepy but I've always been fascinated, imagining how the same paths and corridors were filled with people, going about their lives, hundreds of years ago.
Are you still contemplating a move away from HK? Maybe I should consider going over one of these days, street sweeping with a 'gwailo' might cut me some slack with the locals perhaps? With Curtis and Rinie too I hope
