Going to try and take a pic at 12:12:12 on 12/12/12... Most likely something from the Christmas tree.

Well, most of you know my fetish with doors. Here's another one. I liked how the early morning light was falling on it. This was with the 50-135mm f3.5.



no Leighton, I didn't know that.....what do doors do to you?.....do they bring the colour to your cheeks? ruffle your beard? or do you just get shy and tongue tied around them? My sympathies to you Leighton - must be hard going from room to room being constantly taunted by your paramours.

what is that underneath the barrel (looks like a mush of berries?)

wish you'd stop posting with the the 50 - 135.....if I hadn't just bought Alan's 80 - 200mm I'd be very seriously tempted.

Hey, that 80-200 is no slouch either, sharp as a tack! I hope it's got the square aperture plate? I only have three MF zooms, the 28-50mm f3.5 AI-s, 50-135mm f3.5 AI-s and the 80-200mm f4.5 AI. I have no plans to buy any of the others and I'll likely not sell any of these except to buy better ones.

Peter - great display of what the 80 - 200 can do. I don't know why - but I'm always impressed by D200 images. I'm really starting to look forward to playing with that combination.

OK, here are my 12/12/12 submissions. One of them was even taken at 12:12:12pm Pacific time... Reverse Macro with the Series E 50mm 1.8. All images taken at ISO-100. I was MOST impressed with the amount of detail ISO-100 was able to grab. I was also impressed how long the f22 shots took (one of them took nearly 30 seconds!)

Mainly all of my favorite ornament. It is one of three (a set) that I bought in Prague when the Iron Curtain was still in effect. With the exchange rate, I think I spent a dime on all three ornaments. That is 24k Gold leaf on hand blown glass. I have been offered ridiculous sums for the set (highest was $300) but won't sell, ever. The teapot pictured here is about 2.5 inches tall...

First a combo image. First time I have tried this technique. This is a f/1.8 overlayed on an f/22 capture. I kept the sharp teapot and used the bokeh from the rest. I think it came out very well.

The image taken at 12:12:12pm Pacific time on 12/12/12... f/1.8, DOF is so shallow, but the bokeh is pretty.

Same image, f/22


Love this ornament by Kevin.Woodard, on Flickr

Bonus image! I call it the Christmas Monster. F/22 image of the tree, but about a foot too far to get anything in focus.

Kevin, I like the results of your 12/12/12-shooting. Overlaying a f/22-image with one shot at maximum aperture is a great idea. Some years ago I've tried overlying a sharp image with a de-focused one for more "shimmer".

Inspiired by Ben for a 12/12/12 photo I got lucky. Wife and her friend and coworker came home early to get ready for the Xmas party so I got a quick photo of her buddy before they left. I think I like this lens better than my 50 1.2.

Leighton, very nice framing on the door-shot!

Reagan, that B&W night train is fantastic! And congrats to your new 28/2.8

Mark, excellent shots from Sweden! My personal favs include the wooden building, Vasa's open gun ports and for sure the girl with the bread.

Roland, welcome! I like the rather dark mood of your train-station-shot.

Leighton, great work on your "Neighbor's fence"!

Eric, awesome portrait of your daughter practicing piano! The flowers are very well shot too.

Samy, wow, that Thunderbolt must have the mother of all engines under the hood ;-) Very nice shots!

Monty, cool portrait of your "Alpha-dog"! Someone should have taken a picture of the photographer laying on the carpet to get the proper perspective

Ben (from Boston) - very, very nice examples of what the manual 200/2 can deliver in capable hands!

Ben (from Sydney) - I like especially the road-shot with the bicycle in front. A very dynamic image.

First test of a new to me 28/3.5PC - sorry Samy, still no shot's from the remains of the former "Heinkel-Werke".
The weather yesterday was all grey - not really hazy, but dull and flat light and it was too cold to have fun with a new lens.

28/3.5 PC shifted all the way up if memory serves - f/11, 1/60sec at ISO400, vignetting added in post (silly me)
