Ray, Georg, Monty, Scott, Peter, Samy, Leighton, Reagan, thanks for the kind comments. This time of year I leave for work in the dark and get home in the dark, it was nice to be home and see what it looks like in daylight!

Georg, your fresh snow shots take away my excuses for not getting the camera out even with just light snowfall. Beautiful.

Phillipe, the PCE shots loook interesting, I'd love to try one but my wallet says no, and something about the shots messes with my eyes!

Leighton, that's one coll Mustang. Can't say I've ever seen one with a paint scheme like that one.

Monty, very cool portrait from the farmers market! Nice hat too :-)

Ray, sorry for taking away your excuses ;-) Working with smaller accessories like a cable release can be really un-nerving with cold wet hands during a snowfall or rain, that's why I usually rush things a bit when shooting in "bad" weather.

Two more shots from this morning, both taken with a PC-Nikkor 28/3.5:


Kirche Hanstorf von georgsfoto auf Flickr
a small church - it dates back to the 14th century -- everything is slanting, makes framing difficult


Dorfkirche Lichtenhagen von georgsfoto auf Flickr
another old church - loved the snow sweeping around the corners -- lots of trees around the church make a nice clear view almost impossible

Love the processing on the second image Georg. I really like how the snow is blowing off the roof.

Philippe, très chic! I wonder how many french men will hurry up tomorrow for a last-minute christmas gift like the ones above...
I'm not sure how you've shot this one, but it's for sure an exemplary way on how to use a PC-E-Nikkor.

Monty, great fashion-shot! Very nice B&W and perfect focus!

Georg,
I like your Heimat snowscapes. You are very versatile. Also i like the idea of stitching two 180mm shots to mimick a 6x6!

Georg, these are terrific! Besides the beautiful architecture, the trees around it help make for wonderful compositions. Shooting in the snowfall adds a very nice effect. Is the church still in use?

Well, the photoshoot was a success! I had so much fun and so did the family. I gave them the camera to scroll through the shots I took (200+ images) and there were tons of good responses to the images. I pulled a few to look at in PS and here is one of the examples.

I was going to use my 18-50mm AF lens, but it is only a 3.5 at best and inside it just did not perform well. SOOOO!!! I shot the entire shoot on my Series E 50mm 1.8. I had about 20 feet of room in front of the family, so I just walked the camera back and forth to frame everyone (up to 10 people).

I would really like some critique here. The images below are the same shot, just one is B/W... I would like to hear your thoughts on image calibration as well as the B/W conversion.

Thanks for the kind comments Matt, Samy, Jose, Leighton, Mark, Ray, Georg, Laura and Peter.

Curtis, nice one of the stand-offish cat!

Ray, beautiful flower with the 85mm.

John, more great mountain shots. I really like them.

Anthony, great composition on your Eiffel tower shot.

Philippe, love the night shots from Nancy and the PC-E photos. The blue bars, trees and chateau is really nice.

Raymond, really like "Shadows" and the composition and color of the red ornament.

Georg, Santa as Uncle Sam is terrific! Beautiful snow shots too.

Chuong, great photo of your daughter. Love the colors and composition.

Philip, "By Treelight" is really nice. Great expression.

Reagan and Chin, enjoyed the big dog and the little dog.

Scott, nice job with the calf shots.

Leighton, beautiful shots of my favorite classic car!

Monty, nice one of the cool young guy with the cool hat.

Off Nikon topic, but these two MAMIYA RB-67 PRO, with lenses included 90mm f3.8, 140mm f4.5, and 180mm f4.5 @ $400 seems like a nice bargain, ugh, if only funds

Phillippe - interesting images with the PCE - I really like the last one. I'm glad you published something for Reagan too with the lingerie

Georg - I'm glad it's 30* today and not at all worried about the high humidity! Lovely images all of them

Leighton - a friend of mine had one of these in about 1966 , very macho cars but roadholding wasn't too comforting specially since his was left hand drive and we drive on the left. I always felt that cars coming towards us were lining me up.

Monty - magic images with the 85

Georg, very good snowy pictures with the 28 3.5 PC, and Philippe, nice use of the 24 PCE, sounds like you are taking a liking to it even though its temporary.
Kevin, your images aren't showing up, maybe they are protected?

Here's a few from Frederick, MD taken yesterday. This is a town west of Baltimore and north of DC, has quite a bit of history.

The first one with the 28 3.5 PC, 1/40s, f/5.6(?) ISO400.


This is with the 50 1.2 AIS, 1/100s, f/8, ISO400


Last one with the 105 1.8 AIS, 1/160s, f/2.8, ISO400
