Philip, I like the highkey-smoker a lot - framing and the harsh light suits my fancy just fine.
The stitched shot is very nice too - I should try verticals for my modest attempts at stitching - the last horizontal stitch contained 3 images from the same cyclist ;-)

Philippe, beautiful scene from the Quai!

Leighton, love the moody morning light shot! The sheep in the moonlight are nicely captured too.

Laura, beautiful moon-shot and impressive set-up! Didn't know how large the TC301 actually is.

Jeff, the audio-tube is just marvellous!
Reminds me of an attempt at shooting a large tesla-coil. Cool lighting effect, but my camera (D1 back then) was going crazy...

Jose, the tree-trunk is a wonderful.

Peter, the fortune teller is very nicely taken!

Monty, love the color-shot from the milling-machine!

Alan, cool series of Eli! Love the deep yellow tones, a possible correction for "proper" skin-tones would have killed the mood. Love the close-up of the tracks - sometimes flare can be a good thing...

Ray (from Ohio), I like the flower-image a lot - very nice framing and light!

Americo, love your bokeh-play with the stars and stripes.

A picture taken today while killing some time between assignments:

Heimat XL - Kleines Haus von georgsfoto auf Flickr
A building that dates back to 1589 - the lights are part of a christmas-fair-decoration. Framing could be better, but not without a ladder to change the point of view...
It makes me sad to see historic buildings falling apart, but there's still a bit of hope for this one, because it's under monumental protection and the city will hopefully take action soon.
D3s, Ai 35/1.4 wide open, I let SilverEfex run twice about it ;-)

Thanks Samy. It was too funny, because he sat there & waited for me to focus and take the photo.

Thanks Ray, Samy, and Georg!

I find I have good success stitching with the 105mm, but even with my 50mm I have too hard a time with distortions. It's quickly becoming one of my favourite tricks though, just taking the 105 and stitching to ramp up the FOV when needed.

Ray, awesome squirrel shot, and Georg, wonderful b/w of the derelict building. I was surprised by how affluent Hamburg seemed, there were basically no unkept buildings anywhere. It was quite a difference from Berlin, which had tons of "interesting" buildings all over the eastern parts of the city.

What does Silver Efex do that I can't do already in Aperture (or Lightroom, since they're roughly equivalent)? I know virtually nothing about it, but don't immediately see what it could do that Aperture doesn't already...

Ray, thank you - and I'm gladly echo Eric's comment about the squirrel-shot. I hope you can sell the lens for a good price. Btw, yes, I really love my battered copy of the 35/1.4. This focal length seems to be more natural to my eyes (and the thing called brain behind the eyes) than the "standard" of 50mm. Right now I have 12 primes of this focal length (or it's equivalent) from many brands. The 35/1.4 Nikkor is for sure one of my favorites, as are the Fujinon 23/2 built into the Fuji X100, the Hexananon 35/2 in the Konica Hexar AF and the Leica Summicron-R 35/2. None of this lenses is "perfect" from a technical point of view, but I really love them all ;-)

Thank you, Philip!
There aren't many unkept buildings in my hometown anymore - but some, especially really old ones under the protection of historic buildings and monuments, have been sold to investors who finally couldn't/wouldn't pay the high price for a renovation conform with the rules for protected buildings. Tearing something old down and building a "fancy" building out of concrete is much cheaper.
SilverEfex is a really useful tool for B&W-conversions of any kind. There are many presets from natural looking conversions up to dramatic ones and one can use a ton of sliders to adjust the presets or to start from a scratch (a color-picture in this case). Give it a try - free demo's are available for Aperture and Lightroom too.

All my public images from my recent trip to Hawaii are now in one place on my Zenfolio account. Most all are with MF glass, though a few are with my 17-35AFS or 50/1.8G:

Hope you enjoy them.

D7000 + Nikkor 400mm f/5.6 K (ai'd) ED non IF, ~8m of distance.
ISO 800, wide open at 1/80s; hand held, but supported on a windowsill.
This is the bark of the same tree the thrush was eating fruits.


Excellent as usual Jose! Love the colors and textures as well as the subject matter.
You really do have a good eye for an interesting photo.

Dear All,

Life has been sadly getting in the way of being able to follow or contribute to the great work here, but finally finished the video work for my company (shot 75% with the 28mm and 50mm lenses, the other 25% with an AF lens sadly). so nice to be not spending hours waiting for the computer to finish processing huge video files.

Grabbed a few night shots last night with the 55mm just for something different, but first a quick thanks to Georg for the great shot of the old building, Philippe for the Quai de Seine, 85 1.8 HC, Leighton for the morning shot of his neighbors house and Ray for the squirrel shot. I know there's been many more great shots up in the past week and I hope to go back and catch up on them at some point.

What a beautiful way to share this us, Laura.
I hope you had a good day together with the ones you love to remember him.

Leighton, nice morning image. For a moment I thought that was Sugarloaf mountian in MD, which I have hiked up often with camera gear. But there must be one in VA too.

Thanks Samy, I think there must be a Sugarloaf in every state!

Thanks to everybody else for commenting!

Ray, this is very nice. So Florida's getting snow huh?

Good luck selling your lenses, the example of the 100-300 you posted ought to do the trick.

This is a lens that's on my wish list.

Speaking of this FL on different cameras....I had a Nikon L35AF film P&S that had a 35mm f2.8 fixed lens. This little camera took excellent photos and was really easy to use. The Olympus Epic Stylus was another with a 35 f2.8 that took nice images, I still have this one.
