So I finally picked my camera up again
Picked up a 50 1.8 Ai-s long nose not the same rounded OOF areas as the 1.2
but you get what you pay for
There must be 3 or 4 car shows a week now all the snowbirds are back and pulling the oldies out

I don't know where you all find the places for these beautiful photos France,Zurich Oshkosh by gosh
I will wait for a cold dreary rainy winter day to go looking

All with my new 50 $10 car show and for $20 you could run the strip

Reagan - glad to see you back. the 50mm f1.8 huh? Yeah it's cheap, but it's good - and it's served you very well here.

Damn, heavy contrast? I bet you will have trouble with Leighton



Phillippe - we have to be understanding with Leighton. He has some unresolved issues. It began with a fixation for straight lines and it has obviously now spread to a problem with contrast. Who knows what's next. All we can do is recommend a good therapist (I'm googling for one as we speak) and support him however it manifests.

Thank you for the comments, Scott, Leighton, Ray, Monty, Ray (from Ohio), Philippe, Mark, Georg, Jeff, Bert, Samy and Laura ( for sure the bird is less than 2 feet high).

Philippe, very nice isolation of the subjects and bokeh with Nikki's sister;

James, thanks for sharing your impressions about the 35/2 Ai vs. 35/2 AFD;

Monty, lovely capture of George and Higgs "The Particle";

Bert, liked the "after storm" scenario and the bird with the 200/4 - was it a heavy crop?

Laura, loved the cat shots.

Philip, that's an excellent image from the laboratories. The heavy contrast fits the subject very well.

Matt, I hope the medic's will find a way to reliev you from the pain without surgery.
I like your pictures of Brandon painting the penguins a lot - very nice use of the fast 35.

Samy, I like the B&W from the seagulls at the harbor - a very familiar scenery ;-)

Chuong, very cool shot of the couple taking selfies!

Bert, very nice set! I like especially the shot of your neighborhood - beautiful colors and light.

Laura, I like the horses-shots a lot. Very nice details from the pottery too!

Monty, your colorful street-shot is fantastic!


Thanks for the nice words on the hockey-shot!

Philippe, that last shot is a winner ;-) Great set!
A technical question: If I'm not mistaken you're setting the black- and white-point manual with a dropper?
This would shine some light on the "contrast-issue"...

Georg, I don't use dropper or black/white control points but I use the sliders under the histogram and I adjust the exposure compensation. I also play with the highlight and shadow protection.

Philippe - I'll keep an eye out for trouble from Virginians!

Georg - I often seem to ramp up the contrast, especially heavily on black and white photos. Something great about dark shadows.

Some retaliatory baby cuteness for Mark, 28mm f/2.8 AI-s wide open, in a post-eating contemplation pose.


Margot's not so sure about that by philipjohnson, on Flickr
