Thanks! And yup, that is the real deal - cotton. Terrible to pick I think. Very rough on the hands.

I figure most folks haven't seen it, so wanted to "show and tell."

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:

You are fortunate that you can chose your crops! I don't know layout until after everything is shot and submitted and the editor gets final choice of crop and selection of shot!

I do have to agree with your editor on this selection though! The other was good, but for journalism and story telling. This one trumps it! Very well done!

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.

Ed, funny that you mention that - I've discovered FM while looking at the amazing images over at an "alternate blur" thread or so. Weird flare and all kinds of blur still have a strange fascination for me.
It took me a while to finally discover "Curtis' creation". This thread made me change my status from lurker to participant.

Sorry to bore with more of the same, but my wife likes these more than the ones I posted. And I do what my wife says!

You sound a bit like me. However, what is life without humor?

Thanks Matt! Sometimes the layout is fixed and I'm not able to crop the best picture into it, but sometimes I'm able to suggest the exact proportions to the last millimeter.
I'm not unhappy with the editors pick, but as stated above my personal favs are nearly everytime the slightly more silly ones ;-)

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:

D7000 + Nikkor 800mm f/5.6 EDIF + tripod. ISO 200, wide open (f/5.6) at 1/800s. ~30% cropped. The bark was at 40m of distance according to lens scale.



WOW!!! Crazy sharp! Yet the branch it so smooth!
I love it, but not enough to buy a big lens

Monty a beautiful portrait of a sad situation for her to be in. I've had family members forget who I was and forget who they are, the mind/body not going at the same time is a terrible feeling for all involved.

+1 A very touching portrait! It's very hard to see loved ones living in another world.

Monty, that's a fine documentary piece! Mid or late 50's I would guess.
A sign for the world getting "smaller" due quickly expanding airline traffic I assume.

Speaking of another world - this isn't irreverent meant - many elders here spend a lot of time caring for the graves of the gone relatives and friends.
Sometimes this results in kinda strange sights, like this one:

Back at home and with a sunny afternoon, I was taking some pictures of the pine in front (and below) of my balcony, 25m away, experimenting once more the 800 + TC20EIII:

Thanks. It's refreshing to be welcomed to a group of polite adults rather than some of the other internet forums.

This picture is of a fountain/sculpture on the grounds of our public library. I need to explore it further. I enjoy making abstracts out of reality.
