Really like this one Bert. Sorry, but I LOVE rainy Sundays.


Bert, beautiful work! But I don't LOVE rainy sundays - had the "pleasure" to shoot 3 soccer-games (a halftime each) in the rain today :-)

Thanks,

I remember those from plying soccer back in the Netherlands. Not always fun. I only like the rainy days, when I am able to stay inside

Thank you Samy, Bert and Curtis.
Curtis, you are too kind; and correct, the combo is an effective 1600mm x 1.5 (DX crop) lens,
Oh, and I almost forget this November is my second anniversary on the thread!

Bert, agree with the others here: very nice candles shot. I have sometimes tried but never got one so beautiful like yours.

One more with the 800mm f/5.6 ai, this time "naked" - no TC (hey Monty, what about that copy at KEH ).

Eucalyptus bark with a Nikkor 800mm f/5.6 wide open, at 40m (~130 feet) of my balcony:

Man Jose, I can't believe how sharp that lens is. Cool looking bark BTW.

Chuong, this is simply stunning! Well done! Did you plan for the moon to be in it?


Leighton,

Although I didn't expect the moon at the event, I saw it when I got there and wanted to include it. I also wanted off a little more to the side but that was the only good spot for me with my 28mm.

Well you done good! The moon adds a lot to the overall image.

I had an outdoor session today and my wife and son went with me early and we checked out the park I was working at. All with the D4 and the 85MM F1.4

I wished I had taken the 105MM F1.8 for the second shot to kill the background some more with focal length since it was so bright I had to stop down a bit.

Hi Samy, I really wonder who spends any money for this kind of stuff
Thanks for your kind comment on the roadway-noise-shot!

A 100 percent crop of our local Blur Heron that lives down by the creek. Shot with the 105 f2.5.

You can see how they got their name.

My wife snuck up on from behind so he would fly, but I blew all of those images.


Good shot! They are funny when they are keeping warm. Puff all those feather up to catch the sun.

I was hoping it was more than a one day event. Oh, by the way, there's some camera show/shopping thing at a church down there next weekend. http://www.cameratradeshow.com


I was there once. They run it 2-3 times a year. You'll have to pay $5 to get in. There are about 20 dealers in there. I think it might be worth going to check out the lenses but you won't save much. These dealers are vicious. They down play the lenses were brought in from people in town and got them cheap. Maybe I'll try to pull them aside and offer a few more dollars

Monty, I really like the portrait of Terry looking at his pancake-lens - funny moment, very nicely captured!
Rocky in stealth mode is really cool too

Dean, another fantastic set from Cambodia - the images taken with the 180/2.8 are my favs.

Kevin, I like your macro-shots a lot - the water droplets are wonderful!

Larry, welcome! Thats's an excellent first post here - love the beautiful mix between colors and textures.

Curtis, let me join the chorus: I love the B&W bridge-image for it's excellent composition and B&W-conversion.

Chuong, awesome work at the balloon-festival!

Laura, very nice close-ups with Nikki's sister on the V1. The stellar cat-images taken with the 50/1.2/V1-combo made my buy a demo-V1. I hope to find a reasonably priced FT1 soon...

Alan, the portrait of your son is great! Love how his tiny teeth showing up. Congrats to your M6 - it's an awesome camera. The Fuji's are great too - but I couldn't live without a finder, so the XE-1 is out of question for me.

Baumgarten0712 - welcome! Very nice environmental portrait of this young fella ;-)

Bert, shootings dogs is hard work - you got very nice results, especially considering the tricky black hide (or fur, coat, pelt - I'm not sure about the proper term).

Philippe, nice to see that the 50 works so well on the market too!

Ian, please keep your fantastic landscapes coming!

Jose, as always amazing work with your long lenses! I like especially the bark-photograph for it's rich textures and colors.

Matt, location-scouting with the family is a great idea

Thanks for all the kind comments on the staged roadway-noise-shot!
James, the proportions of the printed image were fixed by the layout in this case and I'm the one responsible for the crop.
Many times my personal fav's are the slightly more silly ones - must be my infantile character.
Anyway, here's the pick of the paper:

What Georg said! What a great set of photos, I suspect a lot of folks lurk here who
may not even have Nikon cameras let alone some Nikon MF lenses

And Matt, good luck, hope you never need that surgery.

Eric, very nice work! Love the old barn - well worth spending some more time there in my opinion. A really stupid question - are these cotton-fields above? I wear nothing but Jeans, but have never seen a cotton-plant in my life...
