John, the fisheye-selfie with green-filter should make a really nice B&W. Sometimes accidents can lead to fantastic pictorial results;-)

No clouds on Mars. Maybe NASA forgot to clone them out....

A few more w/ the 28mm f/2.8 AI-s around downtown St. John's.

We have very few "skyscrapers" in St. John's (pop. ~150k, and the capital city of the province of Newfoundland and Labrador). Here are two of them:

My father used to own a health food store and cafe on Duckworth St, and these steps are next door to it. They lead up to the LSPU Hall, named for the Longshoremen's Protective Union, though it has been for the entirety of my lifetime a centre for the arts in the city.

Monty, this is excellent! This will make an outstanding print. I'm glad you used 2.8, anything smaller and you would have had troubles. The B&W is also ideal for this shot, they'll love it! Well done.


+1, Tina and her husband will be delighted with this!

I like this Philip. We've had a number of unusual compositions on the thread lately, and I've loved all of them!

Nikon D50 / 20mm AI-S (=30mm)

Helen marching cheerfully uphill near Oldham. Didn't make it all the way as the wind picked up but she did OK till she started turning blue in the cold and had to turn around.

The Place de la Carrière, Nancy :



Philippe, I had never liked shift tilts for general photography as most people were using them to create ugly fake miniatures, in contrast you create truly beautiful images, this path through the trees is inspiring.

Reagan, love the kisimee Coupe de Ville.

Chin, pensive, feminine repose.

Leighton, your composition skills are impressive, a simple window shot of Icicles becomes yuxtaposition of trees and mountains with the right amount of defocus. The moonshot is quite moody as well.

David, moving 50 1.2 mourning angel.

Georg, perfect composition and perspective on your church door , I have the lens too.

Philip, the LSU stairs have a very appealing look.

Ian, unique and interesting look on the child photo. rain.

Well, for those of you who are not comfortable taking pictures of people, I found the perfect starting place. A wedding.

Last night my POD (Personal Occupancy Designstation) partner,Tina, got married. The hired photographer ditched out after the ceremony. I was wandering around the dinner and reception with my camera. I kinda looked like a pro. D600, grip and an 85mm f/1.4. People were coming up to me asking me to take their picture "Will you take our picture?" , "Will you take my picture with me grandma?" I just walked around and took everyones picture. No one crabbed at
...Show more

It looks great, you are very talented in both taking and PP.

Can't believe the pro left early...bloody photographers!

This is from my back window, don't think I've posted it before, but this was taken today. A vertical composition, lots of white space.



Ray (Ohio), I like the simplicity in this image.

Thanks Scott and Rafael, actually the icicles were shot off of a ladder leaning up against my barn. The ice was slowing sliding off of the barn roof creating the ice sheet and cycles. But you're right, it does look like a window shot.

You can see what I mean by looking at this one.

Leighton - amazing first shot with Nikki. She has to learn that on the farm you need to get up with the birds though (and often before).

Philippe, lovely work on the Place de la Carrière shot.

Ian - nice work using your new technique. very moody.

Reagan - love the action shot of the boys and cars in the mud.

Chin - love the portraits of your dog

Ray - those shots with the 85mm f1.4 are incredible how creamy the background is. just lovely.

David - beautiful from the cemetery.

Monty - Just wonderful picture from the wedding. I have no doubt she will love it. It was very nice of you to take photos from the reception for people, you never know just how special that could be. After our (U.K.) reception the mother of one of my wife's best friends had a routine operation that went terribly wrong and the last photos of them together were taken by people like you just being nice with a camera during the reception and they mean the world to her. (I hope that doesn't happen to anyone, but unfortunately you never know). So thanks.

I went back to that doorway I posted the other day, this time after dark. The moon broke through the snow clouds for a brief time. Both taken with the 28 2.8 ais.

Thank you Leighton. I feel the same about the wires but there was not any way to work them out of the image.
