Curtis, you must have been logged in to Zenfolio when you posted this, as we're all getting the locked content. Go into that album, and off in the lower right, you'll see where you can unlock the content. You can also configure whether anyone can download it or not.


Thanks for the guidance Laura, but that doesn't seem to be the problem. It is when I attempt to post the image at its native size, which has the longest dimension at 1000 pixels that controls come into play. The entire collection of photos imported from Picasa is open to the public, but when i seek a link to post, I overlooked the note "Public access to these links is protected" that includes the "original file". This is the link they permit without limitation...


The longest side is 850 pixels. I wonder how panoramas would be handled. At the moment I'm not sure Zenfolio is right for me. If I'm missing something I'd welcome guidance from anyone familiar with Zenfolio.

Random shots from the weekend, testing out the 55mm in various guises + the 300mm + 50mm


Mark, I like especially the first shot for it's interesting light. The 55 seems to work pretty well as a portrait-lens - I like the smooth, but still recognizable rendering of the background.

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!


John, nice to see that your daughter starts her photography-career so early and well! Focusing the 50/1.2 is a tough job - congrats!
A side-note: After realizing I couldn't get reliable results with the 50/1.2 on my D1 and D100 I gave this lens my sister for use with an old Nikon F301 (N2000) and she took a lot of tack-sharp pictures with it - thanks to the old-fashioned focusing screen (and her talent, of course).


Peter, I like your B&W's from the Settler Country a lot. Personal favorite is the cannibalized tractor.
Are the old folder-cameras yours or part of the farmhouse-interior? If they belong to you - why not giving 'em a try with a roll of 120...


Ben, I see you're on a good way to fight the "photographic funk"! Very cool abstract from the lonesome cloud!


Curtis, nice to finally see that sailboat-detail ;-) I'm not familiar with Zenfolio, Smugmug and many other photo-sharing services, but find flickr to be quite easy to use.

I did some more digging, here's a link to something a little larger than 1000 but not too large that it'll break the monitor. Above the photo is a spot that says Photo Actions, I clicked it, and chose Share.







D1x and 85mm f/1.4

Let's see how well this works, I've never tried this before.

Hey, it worked!

There seems to be a lot of interest here in the Nikkor-H.C 85mm f/1.8 lens. I found one on eBay (not my listing) that might not show up in a usual search because of the title ( Nikon Nikkor 85mm 1.8 H C Auto AI'D Rare ). Apologies to the forum if this is inappropriate - I'm still learning.

Nice images, Scott, and good luck with the sale. Thinking I may need to thin the herd a little too, have a couple AF lenses listed on CL at the moment to start the process. We'll see what happens. Temps went from in the 60's yesterday to 36 with a high of 44 today, so be prepared for Mother Nature again How close does the 28 focus?

Ben, really like your bike image.

Leighton, congrats on the contest. The photo is very nice. Good looking dog.

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

28 f2.0

35 f2.0

http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1170474

It was unseasonably warm day for December today so I took a walk at noon with the 28 f2.0 (up for sale on the BS forum). Here a couple images from it. Thanks for looking.

Mark, love all the images, but that ball of twine really stands out!

Wow, really good for a nine year old, and it sounds like the bug has infected her, time to get her a camera of her own now

Peter, wonderful images and history lesson here. I don't blame her for not selling. Sounds like you at least have an opportunity to revisit the house with a flash the next time, and offer to document her pieces.

The great City of Philadelphia just about a half mile away. A 3 shot pano with Photoshop and all I did was crop it.
80-200 4.5 at F5.6 For those of you who don't know anything about Philly- to the right of the PSFS sign is William Penn's statute on top of City hall. Up until a date which escapes me no building was allowed to be taller than his hat. Thus the reason Philly does not have the typical skyscraper skyline.

Two pictures from a short walk around a small lake:

Heimat XLII von georgsfoto auf Flickr
D3s, 55/1.2 Ai wide open - the first snow is already melting


Heimat XLI von georgsfoto auf Flickr
D3s, Ai'd 105/2.5 wide open too - loved the ripples around this roots - saturation of the blue-tones upped in PP

and finally a silly shot from 2009:

Some part-time-Santa's taking a break - D700, 28/2 at f/2.8, I'm not sure about the crop

Laura, a 28/2 AI-S will reach .25m/.9ft, the AI is marked for .3m but really reaches .28m.

Lots of nice work on the landscapes (and people), those of you who just posted.

Ben, hang in their and keep shooting. Perhaps you need a muse or a photographic assignment.

My 80-200/4.5 is soon to head to its new home down under. The 25-50/4 needs a home now too. If any of you are interested, let me know.

Thanks Alan, have to break out the converter to see that in inches

10.8 inches for the AI-S, 11.02359 inches for the AI it seems. Thought crossed my mind as I had a cat walking between me and the laptop this morning

And a few more from Sunday at the museum, it was raining and definitely overcast

Couple cats from the Fort Worth zoo. Taken with a manual focus Nikon 400mm f5.6 lens on a F100. Shot on color film and converted to B&W in PS Elements.
