More from the market. The last is an effort using Topaz B&W effects which I'm trying.

I have some reservations compared to Nik Silver Efex pro but it is very intuitive.

All with the 50 f2





It was hot today - around 30C







More baguettes

Congrats on 19 years Ray! That's a long time to be doing something you love doing.

Thank you all so much for your comments. I have a deep appreciation for music as well as photography. I promise I will do my best to put Nikki to the best use that I can. I am already planning my photo opportunities

Lots of wonderful photos! Anyone have any experience with the Nikon TC-14a? Bjørn Rørslett gave it a craptacular rating. I have one on loan at the moment - and from what I have read they are intended for use on 200mm (some say 300mm) or shorter lenses. Uwe Steinmueller seems to have gotten decent results on a 80-400 vr.

Kevin - Very nice abstract!

Tony - Good job nailing focus on a moving dog.

Philippe - Love the third one of the Arc de Triomphe.

Peter - I love the last one of the bread. I wish our market had a baker that specialized in this type of bread.

I have one James and it is so good especially on the 85mm 1.4 it gives me a 120mm 2.0 and saved me a ton of money off buying the 135mm 2.0. I have used it on the 180 and 135 2.8 with great success. It is also wonderful on the 300mm 4.5 so that saved me from buying the 400mm 5.6. If you can buy a good copy I highly recommend the TC 14A!

I absolutely love this shot! Well done!!!! Now, since you get up so early, you want a job?!


me too - fantastic. Doesn't look bitterly cold - maybe it's that warm light - but it sure is beautiful.

Nice shot, Scott.

Ok Chuong I need to know two things. Why are you selling it, and how much? Oh, and one more, do you have a pic of it?

Philip, Monty, Foggy, Leighton, Ray, Philippe, Ronny, Peter, Mark and Ben - thanks a bunch for your comments on the pano!

Kevin, I like your close-up-shots taken with the 80-200/4.5 a lot: beautiful monochromatic espresso-machine and very cool abstract of the vent.

John, I'm really curious about your findings on the 135's. I've tried the 135/2 Ais on the V1 (the tiny V1 has nothing in common with your D800 except a high pixel-density) and found it to be troubled by CA's and overall a not very good performer on this camera.
Have a nice sunday on the mountains!

Peter, very nice sets from the market! My favs are the first baguettes-shot and the country-bread-image for their shallow DoF and framing.

Philippe, the "Screws" and the "Crane" are truly outstanding captures.

Ray, congrats to your anniversary! Music is an important part of my life too - but I can't play an instrument or sing (I do it, but just in the car or under the shower and rather loud than good ;-). Nikki should make a great lens to capture evenings around a stage.

Scott, beautiful image from the winterly stubblefield (?).

Anthony, hats off to your focusing skills! Love the dancing dog.

Chuong, nice examples of your 135/2.

A few more from the Champs Elysées with the 50/1.8 :




Phillippe - finally!!! finally!!!! - there I am constantly shooting the Opera House or the harbour bridge (and you calling them banal) so I thought we'd never get a pic of the Eiffel Tower, Sacre Coeur, the Champs Elysees. I assumed you eschewed tourist snaps....but all I can say is....finally!! .........and thank you......thank you.

I love these. LOVE them. Especially the first one. The light is so perfect on the woman in the foreground it almost looks like you used a flash. And the composition and the strong contrasts give the streetscape an amazing 3D effect. I would never have guessed that was the nikon 50 1.8. Masterfully done.

I could understand if the second shot of the woman on the phone was taken with an 85 but with a 50 you would have been close enough to hear everything she was saying - I'm surprised she didn't call the police.

The smiley face on the street sign of the Place De Charles De Gaulle makes me want to barf - but hey, that's not your fault.

thank you. thank you again.

morning Leighton. Went to dinner at a friend's house last night. I ate and drank a bit too much - feeling a bit seedy this morning - can't quite face breakfast.

Hope those lambs are doing well.

Georg, wonderful panorama!

What software are you using for your stitching?


Thanks, Jeff!
I've used Photoshop CS6 - the Photomerge-function in automatic mode ;-). It works great in many cases, but not always.
I've tried PTGui and Autopano as well for other panos, but these specialized programs are to complicated for my occasional use.


Ben, I have a russian swing-lens-panoramic camera as well - will try to do a comparison between this one and a stitched pano sometimes.
I've lost a few auctions on the mighty Noblex 120-panoramic camera - now that's a mean machine;-)
Overall I prefer the look of stitched panoramics over cropped images taken with a fisheye or ultrawide lens.

Philippe, the single images were taken from the tall church-spire displayed in the backlit winter-shots.
The problem was that I had to shoot through a small opening in a wire-fence (protecting the interior of the spire from the doves).

the noblex huh? be interesting to see what you do if you ever get one.

You think PTGui is too complicated? I use it because it's so simple: - load the images, press stitch and it does everything. It's photoshop I can't figure.

I agree that stitched panoramas look much better than cropped wide angles - but you don't always have the option.

Nikki's other sister....
I have a K 85/1.8 (Ai'd) # 421152 that's available for the cost of shipping.
It's got fungus, dust and dry focus, also original hood and leather case, generic caps.
Cosmetically, I'd say an 8. No scratches or rubs on the glass.
It differs from the HC version mostly in appearance, it seems. It looks like an Ai lens:

Also an Ai-S 50/1.4 in similar condition available. If anyone is interested, please PM me.

cheers,
Steven

Barbara has become a lamb mother!

One of the ewes has rejected her babies, so we'll have to feed them a bottle 4 times a day for the next 6 or 7 weeks.
