Since it's so gold outside, I decided to have a cold one! 55mm f2.8.

Nice shots Reagan. It feels different(in good way) compared to your previous camera shots.



You mean there are no bikini clad hotties in the frame?

Thanks for the comments on the tilted photogs-image! Sorry about the CxxxN-strap;-)

Leighton, lately I shoot most of my assignments as RAW. Exceptions are most team-sports like soccer and handball. Boxing is JPG-terrain too. Large portrait-series and similar high volume-shootings in controlled lighting with minimal shot-to-shot changes are candidates for JPGs too.
Some of my best shots from the past are done as a JPG (medium size and normal compression to save harddrive-space). Now I could kick myself in the back for doing so

Here's a picture taken 2009 with a Nikkor-S 50/1.4 wide open (or SC, have both and don't recall which version was used). I like how the plane of focus is defined on the frozen water.

D700, Ai'd Nikkor S (or SC) 50/1.4 wide open, found the file from 2009 while looking for another image

Yea, I would think that sports would be jpegs because you have to fire off so many shots. I know what you mean about images from the past. I wish I would have gotten into LR when it first came out. Thanks for commenting on the beer!

I love how it focused on the water too! Is the bokeh normally that busy with this lens?

I don't know why you don't have your own micro brewery or a still
Barbara could take care of that also after she works all day on the farm

Actually, small batch brewing would be a breeze for you Leighton. Here's everything you need to know...

How to Make Beer

I had a friend who was eternally asking me to pass along the Grolsch glass beer bottles with a flip top that I quite regularly emptied. He shared the finished product, of course, and it was remarkably good. It would make a wonderful project for cold winter days...

The best part of the shot, however, is the fact the bottle is EMPTY!

I'm feeling a bit like Monty with his pumpkin for last winter, but the evolution of this plant as it reaches the end of last year's cycle is endlessly fascinating for me. This was shot wide open with the 105 f/2.5 P AI'd.

Ronny, love to see my feathered friends are taking a sun-bath in Sweden! The second image is my fav too.

Curtis, is this the same plant pictured with the diagonal framing before? Interesting progress. It looks a bit like a modern sculpture.

Leighton, the bokeh above of the 50/1.4 S or SC is a wee bit enhanced by the SEP-treatment.
But this lens can literally "kill" a picture with it's bokeh. Here's a shocking example from early 2010 - a staged shot in the school (dreaming about the coming holidays). Please note the rendering of the kids in the background.
I hate to have admit this, but the modern AF-S 50/1.4G or 50/1.8G are much better in this regard.

horrible background rendering: Ai'd Nikkor S or SC 50/1.4 wide-open on a D700, bounced flash, staged shot
