Fresh from this morning. New trick if you can call it that.

Found out that it's a particularly difficult task timing the shot with MF and at full tilt

My 24 hour catch-up, this thread moves fast sometimes.....

Ronnie, very nice images of your German Sheppard. Good color and shapness.

Ian, like your style on the portraits. Very eye catching.

Monty, Higgs is so darn cute! Must be a blast to photograph him, if he holds still long enough!

Chin, like the guitar detail shots. Like the earlier ones, nice color and clarity.

Leighton, gotta love where you live. I have visited the area in the summer but the winter looks equally nice.

Ben, thenks for the comment on my images. Looks like summer down under with the Freelines seeing some use.

Philippe, another wonderful plaza image with the pce lens. Nice shadow and movement.

Philippe, inspired by your low light street scenes, I tried this candid last evening. The ISO left things much grainier than I prefer, and the bright window was hard to meter for. Just makes me appreciate what you are able to do in these conditions. Taken with the 105 2.5 at 5.6 and 1/15 sec.

Scott, thanks for kind words.
I like your night shot. Why f/5.6? I (almost) always shoot wide open in the dark and mostly use 1.4 or 1.8 lenses. FWIW.

Thanks Philippe. I used f5.6 as I was afraid that f2.5 was not going to give me enough depth of field (car back to suit in window) and I was having a hard time seeing if I was focused or not in the low light. I like your suggestion thought. I need to improve my confidence as to what is in focus at a given f-stop. Using f2.5 here would have been much better. Thanks again.

Thanks Philippe, Scott and Ray!

Philippe - I like your shot, and it's even in the day light! LOl

Scott - I really like the effect. And at that range, you shouldn't have to worry so much with maintaining sharpness wide open.

Ronny - Another fine shot of your dog.

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.

Thank you Georg - it's very kind of you to try and make me think I wouldn't want the PCE - that's why I took the 24 2.8NC with me to ride the freelines - I was trying to convince myself that I con't need another 24mm. That freeline shot is very contrasty I know but the original wasn't like that - I used a fuji preset which lightened the sky and made all the shadows black. I liked the effect so I kept it.

Phillippe is killing me with those sensational shots (looks like he even got down on the ground for one of them). It's worse because I'm on holidays at the moment - with too much time to obsess over the 24 PCE. As they say: idle hands are the devil's playground (is that an expression in Europe?).

Yes, we say here : " l'oisiveté est la mère de tous les vices"... I'm in holidays too (mais j'ai déjà tous les vices de la terre)

it's close - and yes, being on holidays is a side issue, I've got no resistance even when I'm working.
