James, "Driftwood" is wonderfully taken.

Chuong, lovely snap of your family!

Samy, a group of local hobby-historians just published a small book about the Heinkel-history and the buildings.
Many residential houses were owned by Heinkel (a fact I wasn't aware of). The book is sold-out and I have to wait for the next edition, which is announced to be published this week.

Americo, nice bokeh-play with the fantastic 85/1.4!

Peter and Leighton: electrical plug is very close, but no cigar ;-)
The "strange something" is a picture of the tiny contact-pins of a MB-D10 batterie-grip.
I was amazed by the magnification possible with the reversed 24/2 Ai.

Lovely pictures guys .. its always inspiring to visit this thread I've been absent for quite some time .. hoping to contribute a few pics regularly from now on

Here's one from the ever faithful but tiny 50mm f/1.8 AI-S ... was doing a customary 10k ISO shot from my new D4 (small amount of noise reduction applied in Adobe PS)

Thanks Georg. Interesting bokeh play.

Bilal, cool shot. Must be wide open. I didn't know a f1.8 is also producing oval shape bokeh like the f1.2

Thanks Raboof! The 50/1.8 AI-S is definitely a gem .. and it was my first nikon MF lens .. been through many after it .. but this one has grown some sentimental value on me

Tired from work today but after seeing her after her day at the groomers, I knew I had to pick up the camera. So cute, they put these tiny bands on her ears.
And I just love the character that these old MF nikkors have!
Was rushing to get out the door for dinner and went to get an AF lens to make things simpler (I know, right?) but thought, what the heck, just shoot what's on the camera
Wide open, it's super dreamy, plus she's oh-so-fluffy from grooming.
Left it as a low-contrast shot but you can see the detail in the in-focus areas

Peter, very cool shots from the market. The bread shots are really good and the "alien" guy is an eye catcher.

Philippe, nice capture of the Lambo for rent. They put a Michelin tire on top of the Eiffel Tower? Is nothing sacred?

Scott, beautiful sunrise shot.

Anthony, great dog!

Chuong, very pretty house shots.

Georg, thanks for the feedback on the pano question.

Leighton, love the farm shots. The b&w's of Barbara and the lambs are top drawer.

pburke, the slot cars bring back some great memories.

Monty, train art is an outstandingly good shot.

John, I like the mood of your harbor photo.

Ben, nice shot of your "girl friend."

Sam, terrific snow shots.

Rafael, beautiful film scans.

Jose, love the Tanager and the banana.

Ray, beautiful shots from the garden.

Samy, nice captures of the Hawk and the very interesting Painted Stork.

James, beautiful driftwood photo.

Americo, the winking cat, with the bokeh background, is really nice.

I had gone to Pizza Hut one night to pick up my order, and this kitten was in the parking lot, jumping into the store windows and meowing loudly at the customers on the other side of the window as they were eating. As I opened the door, she made a rush to get in, but I kept her from going in. When I came out, she was still out there, and and very friendly. This particular store is at a very busy intersection, and I knew if she stayed there, it wouldn't be long before she became a splat. So.... I scooped her up, and put her in the car along with the food. Got home, whisked her into the back bathroom, fed her, and took her to the vet the following day for a complete checkup. Looks like she's found herself a good home, just needs a name now..

Nikki Part two:
Plant City, Florida is the winter strawberry capital of
the world. "Located in the Heart of Central Florida
Plant City has a rich history dating back to the mid-
1800s when settlers first began to populate Florida.
Plant City was incorporated in 1885, 16 years after the
state was chartered. Plant City derives its name not
from the surrounding agricultural industry which greatly
added to the City's growth, but from Henry
BradleyPlant."

Bilal - nice sharp portrait

Chin - I love your dog images - this one is terrific

Laura - a very nice set of pictures. Maybe "Margharita" (shortened to "Moggy") would be a good name for your cat since Moggy is British slang for a cat and the pizza assocaition fits too.

Rat - more beauts from Nikki - looks like an interesting old town too.

Jeff - thank you.

Here is another shot from the 80-200mm. I think this little girl has an old soul. She was taking more care of her mom than her mom of her. Very good-natured and spoke very well for 5.

Exposure 1/100
Aperture f/4.5
Focal Length 200 mm
ISO Speed 800
50% crop to isolate the girl

nikon nikkor 20mm ud D800 full aperture sun in frame by Rafael CA, on Flickr

Note the interesting rainbow rays at full aperture, only lens I own that does this.


Rafael, I rarely see such marked dispersion in the internal reflections of a lens. In fact, the only instances I can find seems to be shooting directly into the sun with the 50mm f/1.2 AI-s wide open (reposted shot, who knows when it first appeared now though!):


Strutting down the Main by philipjohnson, on Flickr

I find my 28mm f/2.8 AI-s also readily shows internal flaring, but never with added spectral dispersion like your 20mm example above. Very interesting!

Here is an older photo I took with my long lost loved Nikkor 28mm f/2.8 AIS I had to give up! It is hand held with my Nikon D700, and on board Nikon SB-28 flash set to low power. I sold my love, but someday it shall return!!

Sorta cheating, but here's a "panorama" I was playing with based on a single shot with a 1:3.2 crop.

using a PN-11 extension tube

Hello folks. I am just getting into using a couple of MF lenses and have a question about using the PN-11 extension tube. I hope this is the right place to ask....let me know if it's not.

In your experience what are the shortest, longest and most used manual focus lenses with this extension tube?

thanks Jim S aka "wapsijims"

VERY COLD OUT
I had to go outside today! I dove for Higgs and bent my new glasses. I had to get them straightened...
I wasn't alone. I was very surprised to see this guy outside.
