Thanks Jimmy and at the pun
Laura, lovely set of airplane pictures.
They are all exceptional; none are plane(pun intended!)
Dylan, It's happening here more often now too, pretty soon you'll have a Christmas without snow if things keep up...
Then again, I'm sure it's weird for Ben to see any snow for Christmas
Reagan, I always find it the strangest thing, seeing Christmas themed photos with no snow on the ground.
Have you ever been around snow for the holidays?
Dylan, killer shot of duck and ducklings.
While looking through old 50/55mm shots, I came upon this:
55/1.2 at f2

Thanks Matt, glad these two are at least staying in "the family"
Great photos the last few pages. Really liked the Plane set from Laura, the steeple, and the ducks. Also some great Black and whites, and Ben with the Selfie! Hope the rest stay too, c'mon guys

Thanks Peter, and don't worry about the "PC". I've been called sir so many times it isn't funny, usually on the phone, but sometimes to my face!
Laura - you are a master "craftsperson" (I hate PC ) and it would be fun to have a convention in Philly. Dinner at the Victor Cafe where the waiters are all music students who sing opera between courses would be a great start!
Yup, that's what it is, here's the details on it http://www.nationalmuseum.af.mil/factsheets/factsheet.asp?id=789

Kevin that plane is not a DC3/ Dakota C47.
It looks like a Lockheed C-60 Lodestar
And all us "old people" wishing we were that age again having that kind of fun.. great captures!
Last Saturday I went to a church wedding and had with me only the 180mmf2.8 AIS. After the ceremony during the lunch reception there was a heavy downpour and I found some kids having fun in the rain. This was more entertaining than the wedding pictures.
Alan,At that price, I would have added the 10mm f/2.8 and the 30-110 lens that you could have bundled in, so totaling about $600 and then adding in a flash and the FT1 later. Makes for a really nice compact set.
I've been chomping at the bit for a good EVIL mirrorless system for a couple of months now. I was thinking a Fuji X-100 would be nice, but I didn't want the limitation of just the 35mm FL, even if it is my favorite FL. I was also thinking a Fuji XE-1 would be nice, but $2500 or so is a lot to spend for a system that still has some annoying little flaws, especially when I already own 2 very complete systems (645, FX/135).
Well, I have another new addition to the Nikon family. I just picked up a V1+10-30/VR...Show more →
Anton, Chris Dees, Rinie, and Paul may be able to help you out
I'm currently in Amsterdam, and seeing as this is one of the most active threads in the Nikon forum I thought I could ask here.
Is anyone here familiar with Amsterdam and have any tips or pointers of places I have to visit? Or nice places to shoot? I went to a very nice Diane Arbus exhibition yesterday which was amazing! I haven't brought any MF Nikkors with me this time around, shame on me, but I've got some other nice stuff with me.
Any help much appreciated.
Thanks Jeff, wish I'd gone to the Clydesdales earlier in the week though, so they could be outside more.
Love the footprints in the sand
Thanks for the comments Tony, Curtis, Leighton, Georg and Jose.
Laura, really nice pottery shots with the 85mm. I enjoyed the Clydesdales and the C-60 shot is terrific!
