Jammy, Scott, Leighton, Ronny, Ray&Ray, Tony&Tony, Jeff and Jose - thanks for your comments on the focus-stacked rose and the snow-pictures!

Jammy, very nice bird-portrait of the one-legged Ibis.

Kevin, nice architecture-detail.

Ray, I like the small-rapids-shot a lot.

Tony, love the Moonlight-image!

Tony, the broken press is is perfect B&W-subject and beautifully captured.

Ben, the tilted freelines are really cool. The QVB-shot is great. Love the bike from below. The bow-shaped building is another proof that the 24/3.5 has for sure a place in your camera-bag.

Reagan, very nice work with the 105 on your friends D600! Love especially the first two shots - the pelican and the trimaran-sailor.

John, love the tugboat-shot!

Jeff, wow, great work at the beach! Do you take notes about f-stop and shutterspeeds when shooting film?

Philip, you have great eyes for details like "109OZ".

Chuong, lovely birthday-picture of your daughter! And hats off to your cake-decorating skills

Mark, the set taken with the 55/2.8 is one of your strongest in my opinion. Excellent work!

Jose, the Kiskadee-set is excellent!

Leighton, sorry to hear/read about the cooler and the ill ewe.

Played a bit more with the PC 28/3.5 - it's for sure not the ideal lens for hand-held shots.
Removing the distortion can be tricky. Here's a shot from today - the local theatre is in need of paint:

at full shift like above the corners are pretty weak at f/8 - have to try f/11 or even /16 from a tripod...

Good news Reagan from the hospital visit, shame you have to give up the D600 though, they are great shots.

Ben, very sorry to hear about the terrible heat. Really unbelievably sorry. Just for you here is the fabulous weather we are enjoying here and thinking how glad we are that we go outside and get icicles in our beards rather than having the curse of warmth.



Mark - love the night snow pics.

And I appreciate the sarcasm too. I love the heat - but today is ridiculous. I went out and took dawn pics - by 9 o'clock it became impossible - the sweat was fogging up the viewfinder and I was dripping all over the lenses. It's 10.30 now - had to come home to get out of the heat. They reckon it will climb to 43 by the middle of the day - that's 109 degrees - so yeah, I'm loving the snow shots.

Georg, this is one sharp image. The lines and detail are so crisp. Nicely captured and converted.

As I've tried to do the last two years I've collected up almost all my images taken with my MF Nikkors in 2012 and put them into one place:

http://hinkey.zenfolio.com/p743018635

Windows or something clobbered some of the jpgs for some reason so some of them are not as sharp as they really are.

Someone really needs to take all the amazing photos from this thread and put them all in one place sortable by date, place, and owner.

Thanks Georg. My "high tech" exif system for my film camera is a pencil and post-it notes ;-) It's a pain, but it helps me keep track of things. I really like your theater shot with the PC lens. There's a lot of character beneath the peeling paint and graffiti.

Philip, "1090oz" is a cool shot.

Americo, your wine and bokeh series is very creative and I love the colors. Leighton had some very good suggestions. One additional idea would be to try just a bit of fill-flash on the labels of the bottles and the wine glass. You've placed them in a prominent space in your frame, but the lighting treatment is "saying" that the bokeh is the star of the show. Good luck!

Reagan, the yellow chairs in front of the pink house is a terrific shot.

Choung, nice shot of your daughter. It's great she's at the age when she wants you take her picture. Enjoy it while it lasts.

Chin,

Ben, I really like the bike shot.

Jose, your photos bring to mind the Peter Gabriel / Laurie Anderson song, "Excellent Birds."

Mark, great snowy night shots, especially the traffic lights.

Hi Americo,

I agree with Leighton on his points, but in this image I like the crazy lights reflecting around in the decanter to the left of the image (and to a slightly lesser extent the wine glass), maybe you could try playing around with this a bit?

Kind regards,
Mark.


Thanks, yeah, i have been trying many areas, however, i have yet to share them all for lack of different composition I did these in less than an hours time basically and on a whim! I have been going back to this concept as well often however! I really enjoy using my lens bokeh ability, and natural light to achieve these! thanks again, and happy photography! -Americo.Rodriguez

43 degrees? That's going from rediculous to downright dangerous. I hope you are taking care in that heat.

I cannot believe there are some crazies playing tennis in that temperatures.

Kind regards,
Mark.

Like Scott said, wonderfully sharp! I'm having a hard time picturing what this looked like BEFORE the lens correction. Could you provide a before and after the next time you capture something like this?

Ben, bummer on the heat. I don't do well in heat, either. When my furnace went out, I figured that was a good time to have the a/c finally replaced too, since it broke in 1997, much cheaper to do them together

Reagan, Five years? not ten years? Thumbs up on the two bridge shots.

That's a lot of babies on the ground. Bummer on having to replace the compressor, but at least it picked winter time to do it and not the summer when that would have been full of veggies.

Well lambing is ALMOST done, we Have 3 ewes left to lamb and we have 23 lambs on the ground.

Not only are we in the midst of lambing, our walk-in cooler where we store all of our vegetables for sale every week gave up the ghost! The compressor seen in this first shot went bad. So instead of paying a huge repair bill to fix it, I decided to buy another CoolBot to replace it. It's a great little invention that allows you to run a standard window air-conditioner below what it's normally capable of. It will allow it

Mark, love the perspective on the traffic signal shot. Don't have any snow left on the ground here, except those piles down by the school parking garage.

Looked out the front door last night before I was heading to bed, and that was a mistake... the moon was sitting low, and setting over my neighbor's house, so I grabbed the V1 and the 400 f/5.6 and the FT1 from whence they'd been scattered.
