Samy - I like the bird feeder shot. I also like the Bay Bridge image, dust spots and all! The last time I drove over that was around 17 years ago.

Tony - Good to see you again, love the first one.

Matt - Got to love the bokeh from this lens. You guys are making it real hard for me right now!

Jimmy - I like the first flower shot very much. You need to stick around more.

Ray - Beautiful images from your trip. Looks like you timed it perfectly.

Some might say why did you take a picture of garbage cans. Well I'm glad you did, I love these kinds of shots, very simplistic. The red on the cans balance with the red sign, on a dark background, love it!

Kevin, thanks.
I guess it is a bit under-exposed because I put in a big dose of highlight protection to bring out more texture on the petals. I'll have to be more careful with that.

Jimmy: I could have sworn I saw a post from you, in the local forums, trying to sell the 28mm. Please don't ask, I can't quite explain what I was doing browsing in there...


Chin, you're right that I am trying to flog off my other twin 28mm on our local website.
Don't feel shy about lurking on those B/S forums. I do that a lot as it gives me a good sense of reality about our stuff.

You have been posting some admirable images and prose, and I am trying to catch up. Keep it up.

Leighton, thanks.
With your encouragement I shall stick around.

Ben, I also like your red garbage cans. Actually I should say that I like the picture, don't think I can like garbage cans, especially when they are in use.

I would call your shot, "Twin Bins." Or, "Twin Bwins"

While some of us are still obsessed with the 28mm f2.8, here are a couple of shots with this gem of a lens.
Although it has been said that it is not good to take pictures of people with the midday sun directly overhead, no one said it might be good for weeds.

This is a great picture. I like how the red is in both the signs and the cans!
The signs themselves are wonderful. Lets see, on the left you can stop but you cannot park, on the right you can park but you cannot stop! Perfect!

This indeed works. Crop the bottom to where the bricks start, and it becomes even better, IMHO.

Thanks everyone for the comments on the bike shots... the shadow shot while riding wasn't to precarious, one hand for the bike - one hand for the camera... literally from the hip so no worries with my eyes!

Ray - I'm glad to keep seeing GSMNP shots from you, what a gorgeous place. Cades Cove in particular made a big impression on me. I'd love to get back there next year.

Matt - excellent shot of your son, and love that bokeh! Christmas is the best time of year for super-bokeh.

Jimmy - great b/w flower shots, the first one is close enough to almost be abstract. I love all the natural shapes.

Agreed!
Eric, all photos are spetacular, but for me this stands out!

Never heard of such a beast.

Scott, thanks for the link. I have never saw one of these too. If this was < USD 1,000.00 perhaps I would take one, but over 4,000 is too steep for a f/8 zoom. However it would be great for long lens flexibility on a sunny day

Thanks Mark, Jeff, Ray, Samy and Laura for the very kind words.

James, I appreciated a lot your great comparison of the 24 vs 28 f/2.8 Ais;

Americo, lovely flower with the 28/2.8 ais;

Ron, what great capture of the hawk, and through the back door glass wide open!!!

Samy, liked the birding set with the 500/4P;

Ray, as usual, great captures of flowers with the 35/1.4 and 85/1.4.

Thank you, Leighton. I very much agree with your suggestion. I ought to crop away the untidy part at the bottom.

Samy, thanks for the re-welcome. I'll take note of your suggestion to give a lift to the exposure/contrast in pp. I'll have to do more especially when those shots are taken on a really gloomy and completely overcast day.

Thanks, Tony. I also like natural shapes and I try to bring them out in my pictures.

Jose, thank you too.

Mark, I had one of those, I think. In the states, they were called Timex Sinclair, and I had the 1000 version with the 16k pack module

Thanks Reagan,

It's quite obvious in hindsight. This is what I get for not keeping up with technology since the TRS80 and sinclair ZX spectrum (16K)



Ray, I love how the tree branch in the first one appears to be a finger pointing your eyes to the left!

Thanks Samy, I would really hate for Felix to start chasing a mouse around the house, he might register on the Richter scale if he did... Glad I could give your Monday morning a lighter start

Laura, nice details of the wine bottle with the V1 and wide open 50 1.2. I didn't see the GBH until I processed that pic, I was too mesmerized by those gulls doing their dive bombing runs. Will process a crop after work today.
And its too early and quiet in the morning, otherwise I would have been laughing really hard at your Mouse POV shot, very nice!

Samy



+1. Bryan Peterson would love this.
