Now THAT sounds like good advice! I'm not sure why you say you're in a funk, that bike shot is one of the best images you've posted. You know, I was going through something similar this summer, I got tired of shooting nothing but farmers' market pictures. So I started walking around town and it sparked a whole new appreciation of picture taking. Maybe a walk around Sydney would be just what you needed. Anyway, just a suggestion.



Ben, you may call it funk, but it is very nice work. I always enjoy your creative efforts.

Oh come on Ray, you simply MUST get the 50-135mm!


Ray, Leighton "assisted" me in my decision to get the 50-135. Now I see he is working his magic on you.

thanks Leighton, Phillippe, Laura, Georg, Mark.....but it's just another bike shot. I think I'm in a photographic funk. I hate my pics. Tried switching lenses, bought a fuji EX1, thought that might shake things around - nice camera but.....nah.....it'll pass I guess.

ben


Ben, I know this feeling "I hate my late shot's" all to well. It's quite normal and will usually go away after a while (feels like a long time) of doubts. Sometimes I try to shorten this phase by heading into a new project or playing with new "toys". Just take some time, follow Philippe's recipe, just be careful on your freeliners then ;-)

Ben, really like your bike image.

I have a couple manual focus lenses up for sale on the BS forum. Here are the links:

Scott, I really like the "Enter”-shot. Great framing and very nice play with the DoF. That's what the 28/2 was made for in my opinion. Can't wait to hear about your initial thought's about it's performance compared to your new 28/2.8.
Good luck with the sale!

Ray - love the 'Enter' shot as well. I agree with Georg I think it is the framing using the background that makes it successful!

Man, all these lenses that I want for my kit and me unemployed (unexpectedly)... If anyone wants to "gift" me one, I would gladly take it... (no really, I will take anything Series E or Nikkor... I am not picky if it works).

Portrait of me by my 9 year old daughter Chloe. Had the D800 with the 50/1.2 on it and she wanted to shoot with it, so I said what the heck, why not? She was very careful with the camera and had great technique. Not bad for only using the focusing screen for focusing at f/1.2!

She took a bunch more of the restaurant, her dessert, etc. and took more when she came home.

I'm so proud!

Looks like I may have scored myself a paying gig shooting interiors, first session this Saturday
Guess you guys might have to put up with some shots of rooms from me

Ben: Take some time off and travel? What you need is a stranger, from way across the other side of the world, to lend you an old lens for two weeks, tops. After that you gotta send it off to the next stranger. It works I tell ya. Honest.

And proud you should! Focusing with this gem is a challenge even for the most experienced photographers I also love the bokeh...

Twenty five pages in 6 days!! I took a trip to our middle daughter's mother in law's farm in what is known as Settler Country in the Eastern Cape. In 1820 the British government landed a number of parties of settlers from England at modern day Port Elizabeth, provided them with very little and told them to get on with it! They cleared bush for rarms and worked their way into the interior of the country where they clashed with the indigenous Xhosa tribes in a series of bloody frontier wars until late into the 19th century.

This farm is about 100 miles inland and is surrounded by a large hunting farm owned by an American who bought the adjoining properties. The owner is however not interested in selling and the place is very dear to her. It is full of old furniture and other items dating back about 150 years but stupoidly I didn't take a flash with me and the inside of the house is pretty dark.





The farm house - 8 shot pano

thanks for the encouragement everyone. New toys huh Georg? I'm ashamed to admit just how many "toys" I've bought - I can blame Curtis for some of them - but for the bulk of them I guess I have to face the music - speaking which I've bought a lot of hifi lately. I bought a set of Audeze LCD3 headphones and Schiit Dac and Amp. You yanks are pretty hopeless at most things - but you sure do make great headphones!

to me it looks like a science fiction shot - I'm expecting the alien ship to come down through the hole in the clouds.

Paul - love the big sky shot. Agree with the other, you just expect something to come down through the hole in the clouds.

Peter, nice shots from your middle-daughter's-mother-in-law's house. The 8-shot pano is a killer.

John - nice shot from your daughter. Be careful though, who knows when you'll have your camera back now she has the bug.

Ben - great self portrait, man you have long legs. . You know, what you need to do is go on a trip seeing all the places Nikki's been to.

Hey, nice one Chin. Glad to hear your talents going to be rewarded with dollars rather than just our collective praise. Hope you have fun!
