I think I forgot to upload this one. Two shot pano with the 100/2.8 Series E.

Mount Rainier in the background and the Snoqualmie valley down below. I-90 is down there in the trees somewhere. You can get on I-90 in downtown Seattle and go all the way to Boston without getting off it.

Dylan, I've heard of this skating trail, looks like fun, and an neat alternative transportation mode in the winter. Godd shots too, esp the sharp MF capture on the second shot.


Thanks! And thanks to the others that have also commented.

I debated showing a different, much sharper take on the girl lacing up. I decided I liked the eye contact enough to make it my choice.

Here is the other shot for comparison, you be the judge.













I wish the one with the eye contact was as sharp as this one. My excuse is that I just got new glasses for the first time since 3rd grade the day before. They aren't really to bring things into focus, but they have a prism to align my eyes and reduce fatigue and the severe eye pain I've been experiencing lately.

I think I hate them for MFing.

I think you made the right choice, Dylan.

It's official... I am addicted to MF lenses. I sold my last two AF lenses and picked up a Series E 28 2.8 and the ever popular 80-200mm with the square back. They have to come cross country, but I am super excited.

Somehow it is all your fault, I know it is...

Welcome to the family - you've made the first step of a long journey - admitting to yourself that you have a condition (notice I did not say "problem" because my MFNAS has never been a problem . . .)

My son is home from his semester abroad in Hong Kong and is staying with us for a couple of days. I was able to go out to the field for a few shots before heading out to work today. The lighting was terrible, but it was the only time we had to do it. Shot with the 55mm 1.2 and my returned 105mm 1.8.

Jose
When you are stacking a TC and tubes, which order do you mount them onto the camera, is it the TC mounted to the camera then the tubes or visa-versa, or do you put the TC part way through your tubes stack?

I ask as I did some macro shooting last night but want to get even closer but already had no working distance (using the 55mm micro lens from Tony).

Thanks,
Mark.

Monty - What great bokeh, the main reason I keep that lens.

Jose - Great image of the Hawk. I believe this is the first Hawk I've ever seen without leg feathers.

Ray - Thanks for the comment on my B&W.

John - Your recent pictures look plenty sharp to me! And beautiful at that.

Dylan - I'm with the others, the eye contact all the way!

Kevin - Don't worry about it too much, it happens to the best of us! You can also look at it as an investment, the value of these lenses are only going to go up.

Tony - Nice session with your son.

Besides visiting TJ's home, we also went to Ashlawn, home of our 5th president James Monroe. It was in stark contrast to Monticello. By that I mean it looked like just about all the other old farm houses in this area. Nothing grand about it like Jefferson's.

Nice pics of Monroe's home. I like how these old homes grew over the years with multiple additions to the rear. Then seem to go on and on sometimes. The original house has very nice architectural detailing. Nikki is doing a great job.

You're right Scott, these old farm houses grow as families grow. Unfortunately, you're seeing less and less of that these days as the children don't want to stay in farming, so there's no need to stay on the farm.

More from Nikki. This time, with the TC-201 attached, and cropped 75%. I would have tried my PK-13 tube, but my nephew still has it.

Thanks David, this will be the third time going back to college, did it back in 1980 when I was expecting my second son, as a way to fill the time when we were living in New Mexico. Went to a local for profit college for networking, graduated, had a job till I got laid off 2.5 years ago. Those courses and the associates degree are totally useless though, since the credits don't transfer anywhere, so now it's time to go back and learn something new.

The hawk was 40+ metres away.



Career changes and life changes are in order. Hopefully I do well enough academically to be bumped up the two year waiting list for the program. Getting some of the gen ed stuff done, and maybe a photography class or two in the meantime

Nice one John. Not sure if I-90 is the road to use during the winter though but I bet a fall trip from one end to the other would be a joy.

Nice instrument, what sort of guitar is it? Is it clear lucite or no material at all?
