Welcome back, Jose! Great work with the 168mm-Micro-Nikkor!
The rust-picture is beautiful, the Dragonfly simply amazing. Was it shot from a tripod?

Philippe, your work with the 24/3.5 PC-E makes me think which organ I should sell first for the Nikkor;-) Excellent landscapes!

Monty, your icicle-shot is great. The picture of your POD-partner and her hubby is gorgeous - very, very nicely done! Your postprocessing is top-notch - I bet Tina will be really happy with a nice print of this wonderful photograph.

Mark, very nice set with the 180. The first shot is my personal fav for it's perfect framing.

Ronny, love the picture of the elderly couple. The unsharp twigs in the foreground add a bit of depth to this great image.

Scott, I like the doorway-picture a lot. In my opinion it's much better than the shot taken a day or two back with the 105. The church-image is very nice too.

Leighton, interesting shot of the sliding ice. Most roofs here are equipped with gutters, only very few old buildings are showing icicles.

Ian, I really like the look of "Dovestones". The composition is top-notch and the processing exactly my cup of tea.

Philip, very cool set. I like especially the "Scotiabank". A mental leap made me think about similar colored and shaped icebergs.

Leighton, sorry to hear about your cardreader-trouble. I have no clue about internal readers and still use an old Sandisk-branded one that is pretty fast with high-speed-cards.

Here's the church-door in color just for you ;-)


I'm not really happy with this shot and play with other ones from this short series (all handheld)

Thanks for card reader help, and thanks for the colored version. I think I like the B&W better in this case.

Scott, Ben, Chin, Leighton, Phillipe, Georg, Jose, appreciate the kind words (hope I did not miss anyone!)

Reagan - the real cold comes when it's too cold to snow (as in highs in the teens), but we did have moments of sunshine today.

The Place de la Carrière, Nancy - more TS goodness, awesome, Phillipe.

Leighton, that's moonscape is cool. figuratively and literally.

John, the 16mm B+W self portrait is so well done I want a 16mm :-)

Monty, super bride/groom portrait, they will be very grateful I'm sure.

Phillip, I know you weren't exactly thrilled with the 28 f2.8AIS, but looks like you're still producing sharp images with it. I still enjoy mine tremendously, and sometimes I think the corner softness is more field curvature related. I esp like the LSPU steps.

Ronny, the second shot with the brick arch over the door is wonderful, I like the way you used the foregroung blur and lines to lead to the sharp doorway.
Georg, Heimat XLVI is well, I don't know what word to use, but I love the composition and processing.

Ian, keep the Dovestones style pics coming, you may convince me to try it yet.

And finally, a little fun from Christmas Day, I like the way the lens renders the out of focus foreground and background in this shot, even if I did not nail the focus on the eye the way I wanted to. I actually found that toy really fun myself :-)

Took the D800 and my 16/3.5, 50/1.8G, and 100/2.8 Series E out hiking in the snow this morning. None of the 50/1.8G images made the cut, but got some good ones from the MF lenses:

http://hinkey.zenfolio.com/p864272471

Zenfolio seems to clobber the sharpness in slideshow mode.

I got some of my breath on the front of the 16/3.5 and after that it seemed to show more ghosting than usual with the sun in the frame.

Here's some samples -

All these photos of white stuff on the ground and ice dangling from the roof tops look great. I would like to say that I am very happy to see these but ya'll can keep it up there.

John, another beautiful landscape-set! The 16/3.5 makes some excellent sun-stars. My favorites are #9 and #18 from your Zenfolio-set.
And I'm just curious: why the Nikon in this case and not the Panasonic? Is the Panasonic just for extreme hiking-tours, when every ounce counts?

Just a few shots of two of my nutball cats, Bear and Sourpatch. Myrphee was too regal to join in on the shoot. All shot with the 55mm ƒ1.2.

Tony





I feel a presence...







Sourpatch







Bear







Look out behind you!

Tony, "Bear" in B&W is excellent! Love the dark processing and the bokeh typical for the 55/1.2.
I've seen a cat-picture or two before and this shot is one of my alltime-favorites so far.

Ray, very nice result from your "boredom-play". The letters are glowing like neon signs, a perfect fit for the subject.

Another - and the last - one from the church door:

D700 and 28/3.5PC at f/11 again. This time a more traditional B&W-processing.
There are no straight lines in and around this old church and I see distortions and crooked lines everywhere.
I admit I feel self a bit crooked and distorted after editing some pictures of this church.

Leighton - Great shots with Nikki! I really liked the icicle shot.

Philippe - I love the path through the trees shot.

Ray - Your flower shot with the 85 was beautiful!

Reagan - Looks like a great time in the mud!

Ray - Very nice composition on your White Space shot.

Chin - I'm really liking your series with the pooch!

David - Cool shot of the angel.

Monty - Very nice portrait of the new couple! I am sure they will love it.

Philip - Nice architecture shots. The last one is by far my favorite!

Ian - Excellent photo with Helen. You look like a natural for the technique!

Scott - I agree, that second shot is awesome!

Ronny - Nice candid!

Mark - Beautiful landscapes. You can never have enough clouds!

Jose - The dragonfly is amazing!

Oh I debated taking the Panasonic GH-2 +12-35/2.8, but I knew it was going to be a stellar day, so I bucked up and took the big hardware.

The GH-2 12-35 combo has been seeing a lot of other family-related action and it's working out just fine.

My compromise was taking the 100/2.8 series E instead of the 105/2.5 just to save weight.
The 100/2.8 is not as sharp as the 105/2.5, but it's just fine at reduced pixel counts.

My quest for a compact, light, and sharp 100mm continues. Perhaps I need to look at the 135/3.5 . . .

Last of the dog by the window series
Left this as non-high key, non-tilt
It's an incredibly sharp lens
