As promised, rust.

and apologies to Leighton (and others) for the curvy and slanted lines. The horizon level indicators in my D800 showed that I was level at the time of the capture

All with the D800 and 20mm f3.5 AI.



Nice rust. I especially like the first image.

Jammy - lovely ibis image. Did you use a separate light meter, the Sunny 16 rule or guess the exposure? Whatever you did it was well done.You probably know that you can use pre ai lenses with the D40 and they are significantly cheaper than the Ai and Ais versions.

Jammy - Good to see you again, and congrats on getting Reagan's lens. The 180 is definitely a must have. Nice Egret shot, but sense you asked for C&C....I'd like it better if it wasn't for the Egret on the right. It either needs to show more of the bird or none at all, IMHO.

Thanks a lot for that tip --- I did not know that.
Leighton, I have enjoyed the many images you have posted with your 180f2.8, and I was actually motivated to purchase the lens based on yours, and the wonderful images of the other posters in this forum.

Thanks for the input, and I have cropped out the second bird and reposted the image:

Thanks for the comments on the snow-pictures!

Inspired by Jose and Kevin I've tried a 50/2Ai with a reversing-ring. It's also a first try at focus-stacking:



Way cool flower shot Georg, and thanks for the comment.

Thanks Scott. No, we are about a quarter of the way through. We work in the barn for awhile, and then we come back to the house and take a break. The ewes are checked on every 2 to 4 hours around the clock until they're all done. It gives me a chance to post a little in between births.

Side note: The part of farming nobody ever sees is what I have to do later this evening. We have a ewe that's probably not going to make it. So I'll have to put her out of her misery. It's a job I don't much care for.
If you've ever seen the British TV series All Creatures Great and Small, it depicts farming very well.

I also like this one better, but I was going to suggest a portrait crop rather than a landscape crop.

Sorry to hear that one of the ewe's is having problems. That can't be easy for you. On a lighter note, those newborns are cute as the dickens!

Thanks everyone for the critique...very constructive

1. 180f2.8 --- my friend actually took the picture. I think that she is a natural at composition: hope it's not against the rules to post a pic I didn't take.

2. 300f4.5 --- one legged Ibis (didn't notice he had only one leg until post processing

Nice shots Ray. And as you have just shows, Nikon shooters are on the level, it's just the rest of the world is crooked.

So it is Mark

Philippe, first class award for the picture of the monk(?)

Thanks for the kind comments on the rust pics, hope I don't miss anyone (Leighton, Peter, Mark, Rafael, Scott)

Peter, the curves are due to some distortion from the lens, but mainly due to the fact that I had a fairly wide angle lens (20mm) not pointed level along the lens axis.

Jammy, good lighting and capture on the Ibis, I prefer the single Ibis picture myself.

Georg, the smaller rail is likely what is known as narrow gauge railroad, they are still pulled by machines, just smaller machines. And by the way, a superb effort on the rose for a first timer in focus stacking. I have not dared to share any of my focus stacking work just yet.

and lastly Kevin, way to show off that Series E 28mm.

One more from this past Saturday. Not quite sure what to make of this, but it looked interesting after some cropping, B+W conversion, and sliding around some of the tone controls. Feel free to comment, good, bad or otherwise.
200mm f4 AI

Edited - replaced original image post, liked this treatment better.

Tony - You had to go and rub it in, didn't you?

Leighton - you know it! Not how I've ever spent my holiday before but I HIGHLY recommend it! Great job with Nikki, I'm bummed my time with her is done!

And I love the 'buddies' shot! My dog is clearly a city dog, whenever we've been at a farm or petting zoo he goes nuts around goats and sheep...

Sam - I really like the butterfly larve shots, the second one in particular is excellent. I'm fascinated by that 200/4 macro!

Ben - thanks for the reply on the t/s lenses, I'm looking forward to seeing more examples of your experiments!

Georg - thanks for the comment on the Red Stripe shot! That tilted 85/2.8 shot of the garden gate is pretty trippy, kind of dream-like.

MarkdV - nice macro/product setup and great results!

Peter - Nothing wrong with BW but I didn't see much need for it in Jamaica! I've got some b/w coming though. Subtle tones are sometimes soothing!

Ray - the b/w small rapids shot looks great. I can see it up on the wall over my couch!

Another shot from last week's early bikeride... airplane taking off from DCA with the Capitol Dome in the background. D600 and 105/2.5 AI-s. The second one is the moonlight on the water in Jamaica also with the 105/2.5.

Came into work today to a small fire in the main motor of one of the presses. Always scary when that happens. (Yes, it has happened before.) Thankfully it was just buildup inside that had caught fire and after being serviced, we were able to get back to printing.

Now off to catch up on the 10 pages I missed over the weekend!
