Thanks Mike. By field curvature I meant curvature of the focal plane leading to OOF corners when the plane is close to you.

I prefer the diagonal placement of the lights that you've used as it gives a sense of movement to the them in relation to the stillness of the foreground.

It's going to be a busy day here today, we have 15 ewes due today or tomorrow. The second shot is what farming CAN look like. It's not always pretty animals out on nice green grass. I've just added the link as some may find it disturbing.

BTW, the last day with Nikki before going to Ray.

Leighton, this is a very nice image. That little guy (gal) is very cute!

You are doing great work with Nikki. I know how much fun it was to shoot with her and it will be hard to send her on her way.

Leighton, Mark - great stuff. Leighton - yours is very abstract but still looks quite ordered.

Thanks Leighton, Scott, Ronny, Georg, Tony D.

Tony D - I'm using tilt and shift - mostly shift - but it's early days. All the images I posted used some movement . It's a very particular lens - got a lot to learn about it before I figure out how to use its capacities - especially tilt.

It's a very particular lens with lots of "problems" - distortion, severe fall off. But It focusses insanely closely.

Phillippe says he was about a metre from the boy in his bridge shot - well, he looks like he was an inch away from those tiles - yes, it focusses that close.

I think you will find that to some degree in all versions of the 28. You may have to find what is acceptable to you. I have enlarged some of the 28 images up to 24x36. Since the main image focus is the lights so having a bit of softness in the corners does not distract from the image. The newer ones designated as aspherical may be what you are looking for.

I was looking for fast and cheap. I would like to get a hold of the 20mm /2.8 AF-D and do some test shots with it.

Last breeding activities for birds over here:

Mommy, I need food!!!


Sayaca Tanager juvenile begging for food by labecoaves, on Flickr

D3 + PK13 tube + Nikkor 400mm f/5.6 K AI'D ED non IF, ISO 3200, f/11 at 1/320s, tripod.
As this lens has a MFD of 5m I attached a tube to get focus at ~4m.



Here is your food, small glutton!


Sayaca Tanager juvenile being fed by labecoaves, on Flickr

D3 + PK13 tube + Nikkor 400mm f/5.6 K AI'D ED non IF, ISO 3200, f/11 at 1/320s, tripod. Note that the mom closed her eyes to avoid any accident.
No noise reduction applied. I almost forgot how good D3 is for high ISOs.

Great captures Jose, you are the birdman of Brazil!

Speaking of Brazil, I'd love to see some street shots of your city. It's beautiful from your balcony, it must be lovely on the street.

Leighton, I like the B&W-shot of the newborn sheep a lot - great moment and caring expression of your wife, beautiful B&W and just the right DoF. I like the "hidden" image too - that's just real life in color ;-)

Mike, I've never seen an Aurora in nature and I'm really amazed and fascinated by your captures.

Samuel, great macro-work! I like the second shot the most - the light is more natural and the DoF more appealing to my eyes.

Rafael, love the "Telegram"-shot!

Tony, the "Red Stripe"-image is fantastic. Perfect use of a fast lens.

Philippe, great selfie!

Ray, very nice shot of the old mill. Somehow I like the leafless trees surrounding the building. Hope to see the rust-pictures soon ;-)

Thanks Leighton.

The problem is that here I can be killed because a pair of shoes, or even because US$10.00, think of an expensive camera...
Besides that I am a very shy guy that do not manage to photograph people very well.

Jose, beautiful set from the "Sayaca Tanager". Amazing, the juvenile bird looks like it's already the size of it's mum. Your bird-pictures are - not just from a technical point of view - spectacular. Thanks for sharing.

Some more images taken today. I don't wanna flood this thread, I'm just happy to see some snow and sun after long weeks of rain and deep grey skies;-)


old garden gate - a favorite subject, 85/2.8PC tilted


ivy - there's still life under the snow


Heimat XLIX von georgsfoto auf Flickr
another test of a recently purchased 180/2.8ED - I like this lens so far, but it's aperture mechanism is stiff (shot wide-open)


The 180/2.8ED on a D7000, cropped a wee bit - it's to long for a crop-sensor body, even in the european hockey rinks (broader than the north-american rinks). Maybe I'll try the 135/2 Ais next time...

Thank you Georg. I placed an old, black GE Super Radio in the background. If you look closely, you might be able to make out the grill pattern of the speaker cover! As an aside, the GE Super Radio is an analog AM/FM receiver that utilizes a fairly large ferrite receiving loop, and is known for its excellent sensitivity on the AM broadcast band. The D700's in-camera flash was used for both photos.
