A little snow on the mountain. We live in the Shenandoah valley with the Blue Ridge Mt's to our East, and the Alleghenies to our West. All part of the Appalachian mountain range. We are closer to the Alleghenies which you see in this image.

Tony, I'm using a HS-7 clip-on metal hood for my 55/1.2 (late genuine Ai-version). Works pretty well.
After looking at several silly priced offers at the german ebay-site I've ordered a new one from Hongkong. Was a lot cheaper than most beaten up used offers here. The HS-7 will fit over the 55/1.2 in reversed position for transport.
But basically many 52mm-threaded hoods should work fine - a walk over a used-gear-fair should get you a cheap and nicely fitting one.

Tony, very nice set from work. I like the creamy background-rendering of the 55/1.2 a lot and while the second and third images are really nice my personal fav from your set is the B&W-shot.

Rafael, wow, amazing light on your San-Diego-series! I like the "San Clemente"-photograph the best - for the well positioned shiny lake/inlet.

Mark, cute portrait of your son! It seems he really enjoys chocolate ;-)

Chin, great guitar-details! Personal fav is the first shot. Are these guitars for working musicians or rather collector-items?

Ben, very nice shot of your freeliners. I wonder if a modern lens like the 24/3.5 PC-E would be too contrasty for backlit shots like this one.

John, the fisheye-selfie with green-filter should make a really nice B&W. Sometimes accidents can lead to fantastic pictorial results;-)

Thank you Ronny, Tony and Georg! Hard to take a bad picture with good light.

As an example of what good light can do, take look at this one taken with my Samsung cell phone.

A very quick one. There's a reason the 50mm f1.2 is such a classic and worth returning to time and time again, especially at f2.0


Agreed Mark, sticking a cute a kid in front never hurts either!

Thanks everyone. Been trying to shoot more with the PCE just to get Ben on the wagon. It's the interior of a well-known music store, my friend's company did the interiors - flooring, walls, racks, ceiling, lights, the works. Naturally, no photography's allowed but we got special dispensation for this one

Leighton: In city-slicker fashion, I just gotta ask you: do you have sick days? Or days when you look at the horizon and think, 'I don't wanna do these chores today, just gonna git my camera and tripod and head into the mountains'? What then?

Those two are hard to find Tony, I use the 50 1.2's HS-12 on the 55 1.2s, or the HN-24 with a 52 to 62mm thread adapter, either looks great. The HS-12 can be found new in e-bay from FujisunriseUSA for $29.50 shipped from Hong Kong, bought three so far with no issues. Either of these don't mount backwards on the 55s but I do not mount the HS shades backwards for transport as this is asking for scratches on your focusing ring. I also have an 58mm 1.2's HS 7 bought new in e-bay, same seller for $30, works well and can be reversed on the lens if that is desired.

Thanks Alan and Chin.

Chin, unfortunately, I have days when I am sick, but certain things HAVE to be done no matter what. However, working for ourselves means if we feel like it, we'll do the bare minimum and go do what we want. Actually, this time of year, we do this quite often. In fact, when I have my turn with Nikki I already have a couple of day trips planned with her!

Which sounds great. Boy, someday I'll do just that. Getting mighty disillusioned with corporate and city life. Can't wait to see what you've got planned for Nikki!

Fresh from this morning. New trick if you can call it that.
Tried to get her to yawn when we say 'open'.
Found out that it's a particularly difficult task timing the shot with MF and at full tilt

Two shots from a short walk around the block.
Ooops, no block in sight far and wide.

Maybe you should consider buying one more tilt-shift, georg
But that's very nice, the compression is something the 45 wouldn't offer

Thanks for the comments, found and processed another
Lucky to have caught her face in the wedge of focus
This one makes her look like a wailing baby instead of performing a menacing roar

I like your use of this lens in this shot. Is the reddish color in the sky a result of lens flare?
