Wonderful set Roberto and directly on point for John. The first two shots are quite delicious. Thanks.

Great work Philippe. Black and white is perfect for highlighting all the lovely angles you capture. I'm aware as color drains out of my world that shooting black and white becomes very appealing, which calls forth attention to graphical elements. I've enjoyed that kind of shooting and this work is definitely inspiring.

When you have ripples on your mind you find more. These are with the 400 5.6 AIS.

Matt, hope the steroid shots work wonders. and WOW on the eyes in this shot!

Hey everyone. Wanted to stop in and let you know what I found out. The Dr.'s have decided to do another MRI and then they are going to try a series of Steroid injections into my neck to try and relieve the pain rather then go directly to surgery. So I'm a bit relieved for now and hoping it works.

So tonight I had a studio session and at the end the young lady obliged to let me mount a MF lens for one final shot. So just to prove I can still use them here is one with

Good new Matt!!! My fingers are crossed for you~

Great picture! Very well lit, nice and sharp!



I know you wish to avoid surgery and with Monty, I'm hoping for the best from the treatment proposed. Dealing with pain can be very debilitating since it captures your attention so powerfully. I'll keep my fingers crossed as well, knowing that however this unfolds, you have the strength to meet it.

The image certainly demonstrates the capability of this wonderful lens, but I can't help but ponder the fact this lovely young girl has opted for eyeliner and mascara rather than present her beauty in its natural state. Kids are growing up too fast, in my opinion, captured by the fantasies offered in the media that tend to sexualize just about everything. I know there is no putting this particular genie back in the bottle, but I know this route can easily lead to disappointment and unhappiness. Of course, I'm generalizing. I hope this young woman has a wonderful life. Now I'll get off my soapbox...

Nice images Roberto!

One more on ripples. The second image is a vulture that was circling. Both with the 400 5.6 AIS.

Curtis, I like "dem apples"

Kevin, The leaves are lovely

Matt, excelent portrait. Hope the health issues are sorted soon.

Roberto, nice use of that lens - good resolution IMO

Phillippe, great perspective turning the common into art. Well done.

Samy, love the ripples and vulture.

Curtis, thinking about your picture from San Rafael I just had to crawl really deep into my archive.
Here's a vacation-snap, taken with the Ais 135/2 on my old Nikon D1.
This 2.7-megapixel-wonder wasn't exactly built for MF-Nikkor-users and in this case I've managed to overexpose the scene by a healthy amount.
But family and friends liked this picture for it's artistic look :-)

I rarely do this, but of all the wonderful images on this thread of late, this image by Georg really stands out to me. Composition, color (or lack thereof), etc.

Goes to show that you can make a fantastic image with an "obsolete" DSLR and a 30 year old MF lens. It's the photographer, not the gear!

Well done!

Baby Margot hit her 2 month milestone a couple of days ago. Time's flying! She smiles regularly now, and has started holding her head up, if not terribly steadily yet. 105mm f/1.8 AI-s, wide open.

Need your advice guys... I have all the lenses I need and even more... but I have a chance to purchase a 180/2.8 AI - obviously non ED version with $200. It has very clean glass but with some marks on the body, some little scratches, etc... What would you do?

I would pass, Mihai. If you want the focal length hold out for an ED AI-s copy!

Back to the Chesapeake Bay in a little better conditions just the wrong time of day. First image I don't have to tell you what it was shot with a dead giveaway. 2nd is with the 50 1.2 AI 3rd is the 75-150E and the last with the 20-3.5 UD. The group is the birdwatchers and they are a much stranger bunch than we are by far. I remarked to them the place was quite devoid of birds and got some very deadpan looks.

Found one more from today's excursion. This reminds me a bit of scenes from Battle of Britain movies, with Luftwaffe bombers blanketing the skies.

Easy answer, don't say that on this thread. They will all egg you on.
