Scott, I really like the composition of your image - the Tiger Shark as "solid base", the diagonal lines, the high horizon with the four masted ship like a tiny reflection of the Tiger Shark on the opposite end.
If I'm really critical I would nit-pick that the jib boom should be completely visible. But I'm never that critical on my own shots ;-)
I do my B&W-processing depending on my current mood - something with more detail-contrast (structures-slider in Silver-Efex) would probably be my choice.
But that is really nitpicking on your fine shot.

Philip, very nice series about the medical centre's architecture! It looks a bit, well, behind-the-iron-curtain-esque ;-) Maybe Mihai can chime in - at first I thought the medical centre belongs to Nicolae Ceaușescu.
I really like subjects like this one and your take on it.

Haven't heard that name in a while, didn't Ceausescu (wow, never tried to spell that and I don't know how to get that squiggly under the s) come to a sudden end in the streets?

Philip, good captures.

There must still be remnants of that style in Eastern Europe.

Georg, you have a fine architectural sense... yes, this looks like "good" communist architecture from Romania... Well, we have also "bad" communist architecture... I may need to document it a bit for this thread... Need some time, energy and to receive my new machine (PC)...

Philip, you did a great job, capturing not only walls but also the atmosphere. Congrats!

Y'all... as you can see I am faithfully reading the thread... and I find every day an immense pleasure looking at your unbelievable good images... Unfortunately I have no chance to chat

Samy and Monty - thanks a bunch, guys! I've had the Ferris wheel and the illuminated trees as "bokeh-background" on my radar and was just looking for something to fill the foreground.

Mihai, it was a strange experience for me to see after the fall of the Berlin Wall that monstrous concrete-buildings with a slightly inhumane character were also built in the "free world"...

Part of the scene on the rocks on the opposite bank of the river at Conowingo dam.

For this distance Jose's setup of 2000 or 2400mm (as well as his technique and skill at keeping it stabilized ) would be handy.

And one more interesting scene - these cormorants were congregated below, and the seagulls (?) sitting above, at this moment the gulls suddenly took off.

This was further away, right at the dam. I am estimating (based on Google) about 700-800m across the river to the far end of the dam.

I was going to post this earlier, but you beat me to it.

The article also points out that Nikon also published a patent for a 50/1.2 AFS back in 2010 - so who knows when or if we'll see either one of these. I'm sure the 50/1.2 AIS will not decrease much in value as a new 50/1.2 AFS will likely be $2K-ish kind of lens. Who knows what a 58/1.2 AFS will go for, though if they do come out with one it will likely depress the astronomical prices for the 58/1.2 MF version just like the 28/1.4D prices fell when the 28/1.8 AFS came out . . . .

Anybody have any experience with the 24mm f2.8 ais, or the 35mm f2.0 ai?

24 2.8 AIS, which has become less used recently since I also have the 20 3.5 UD and the 28 3.5 PC.

Very nice lens and plenty sharp and good contrast, although I didn't do any systematic test against the 14-24 AF. Any recent shots I have taken it though are with it reversed. More resistant to flare than the 20 UD, and also focuses pretty close.

James the 24mm 2.8 AIS is a wonderful close focus lens that is defiantly on par with with the 28mm 2.8 I had a chance to shoot with both of those lenses side by side and could see no difference in quality. Here's a shot taken with the 24mm 2.8 AIS

Samy, loved the "bird landscapes"; wow, 800m away!

Ray, crisp, sharpand scaring shark!

Georg, in fact Sepultura is among the best in their specific style (thrash/death) inside heavy metal, but also they are not my cup of tea. Currently I am discovering great Scandinavian metal bands.

Monty, don't forget it :

Just US$ 227.00 at the moment!
