Love it!

John, I like this version much better. Are you sure you're not on Mars, looks like the Rover behind your right shoulder!

Chin and Ronny, great dog portraits. Glad to see another dog on this thread.

Reagan, Georgms, Leighton, Philippe, Ray, and Rafael, fantastic landscapes.

I went to a local cemetery for some large format practice and also took the 50mm.

Monty and David - thank you!

David, what a beautiful photograph! Notwithstanding the rather dark tones it has an almost feathery feel to it - thanks to the soft rendering of the fast Nikkor. Very nice work!

Well, for those of you who are not comfortable taking pictures of people, I found the perfect starting place. A wedding.

Last night my POD (Personal Occupancy Designstation) partner,Tina, got married. The hired photographer ditched out after the ceremony. I was wandering around the dinner and reception with my camera. I kinda looked like a pro. D600, grip and an 85mm f/1.4. People were coming up to me asking me to take their picture "Will you take our picture?" , "Will you take my picture with me grandma?" I just walked around and took everyones picture. No one crabbed at me.

When the bride and groom cut the cake, people ran over to me to photograph it. I'll tell you one thing, I know why real photographers use flashes. THe light was terrible for many pictures. I know my camera has a flash on it, but I've never used it

I only had my 85mm and found it too long for many of the shots people wanted me to take. If I was a real photographer, I would have taken my 28mm, 50mm and the ever present 85mm. Maybe the fisheye for the ceremony. (or a nice close up of the bride, making her nose about 10X larger than normal )

I'd like to print this picture and give to to Tina when we return to work on Wednesday. I've never been so worried about a print. I hope she likes it. I hope I didn't PP it too much.... Oh Well..

Monty, how horrible that the pro ran out on them, but glad you were there to at least get some shots in the reception. May Tina and Brant have many very happy years together. I think she will love the shot, go for an 8x12 so nothing will get cropped out. Next stop for you, an SB-700 or SB-910/900 Today is my 34th, and it's hitting pretty hard.

I'll second that. The sunset shot that looks like the sky was on fire, was shot while I was at the cemetery that night.

Tony/Chin/Georg - Margot in her brown bear suit gets renamed "Margrizzly"

Alan - Newfoundland is not so cold (well, it is compared to Texas), but it's so damn *windy* that you feel cold all the time. A difficult place to enjoy the outdoors in the winter.

Ben - Thanks! The light that evening worked really well for the scene. I have a few other angles, but that one works the best.

Philippe - you may not want to pay the 1900euro for the 24 PCE, but if you have to give that lens back, I might start a fund to buy you one all the same. Just wonderful photos from it, tilting in particular suits your style of photography.

Mark - The 28mm f/2.8 is indeed a stellar performer. The siren call of the f/2 never goes away though, I'm still on the lookout for a late copy (SN > 613*) of that lens to do another comparison between lenses with the same coatings.

Monty, this is excellent! This will make an outstanding print. I'm glad you used 2.8, anything smaller and you would have had troubles. The B&W is also ideal for this shot, they'll love it! Well done.

A few more w/ the 28mm f/2.8 AI-s around downtown St. John's.

We have very few "skyscrapers" in St. John's (pop. ~150k, and the capital city of the province of Newfoundland and Labrador). Here are two of them:

My father used to own a health food store and cafe on Duckworth St, and these steps are next door to it. They lead up to the LSPU Hall, named for the Longshoremen's Protective Union, though it has been for the entirety of my lifetime a centre for the arts in the city.

I like this Philip. We've had a number of unusual compositions on the thread lately, and I've loved all of them!

Nikon D50 / 20mm AI-S (=30mm)

Helen marching cheerfully uphill near Oldham. Didn't make it all the way as the wind picked up but she did OK till she started turning blue in the cold and had to turn around.

The Place de la Carrière, Nancy :



Philippe, I had never liked shift tilts for general photography as most people were using them to create ugly fake miniatures, in contrast you create truly beautiful images, this path through the trees is inspiring.

Reagan, love the kisimee Coupe de Ville.

Chin, pensive, feminine repose.

Leighton, your composition skills are impressive, a simple window shot of Icicles becomes yuxtaposition of trees and mountains with the right amount of defocus. The moonshot is quite moody as well.

David, moving 50 1.2 mourning angel.

Georg, perfect composition and perspective on your church door , I have the lens too.

Philip, the LSU stairs have a very appealing look.

Ian, unique and interesting look on the child photo. rain.
