Thanks for the input Tony. I ordered the 603's yesterday. There's been something I wanted to try for a while now that needed either a trigger or cable. If it works, I'll share it.

Looking forward to it Leighton!

A friend had surgery yesterday in San Francisco. I drove him there very early yesterday and thought it might be fun to take some camera gear. Unfortunately, it was raining yesterday. But today when I picked him up weather was accommodating. Here is a photo folks will remember from last year taken with the 35 f/1.4 AI-s. Tony was kind enough to print a large copy of this though I don't know where I'll hang it. What follows is a shot I took today from approximately the same location with a 28 f/3.5 H AI'd.

You still haven't hung that thing Curtis?! I'm just playing. I was happy to do it for you. I have the opposite problem. Too many open walls and not enough prints! Hopefully that will be remedied in the near future.

Great bokeh! Looks like the lens is a winner.

Thanks Tony. I have had the lens for quite a while and it always took great photos, but I hated the chewed up aperture ring. I finally found a replacement on E-bay in a fungus filled lens of the same vintage to salvage the ring for only $31.

Thanks Georg, and yes, it is a very chunky 45. It was one of those deals that was too good to pass up, so I jumped on it quickly.

Congrats, Laura! Is the lens in question maybe a rather chunky 45mm?



Thanks Chuong. I'd have kicked myself for sure, if I let this one pass by without at least trying it out.

Great shot again Philippe.
Georg, I love #2 but the other two are also great.
Laura, cool PC shot. Congrats!



Tony, The studying will hopefully take me somewhere I want to be, so as much as it's dreaded, I've got to do it, and do all the subjects well, so that I can get bumped up that waiting list faster.

Laura, don't envy you, I started despising Chemistry when I ran into advanced Organic. Lots of hard work. What's the new lens?

Jose, Ray and Georg, thanks for critiquing the bokeh comparison test. The differences were subtle, though I also thought the 55 1.2 was the best (after a struggle, maybe my glasses need an update ) I agree that the rest don't slouch, under these conditions. I did wonder if I should have backed up the 55 a bit to get the same frame. Interestingly the 55 1.2S is my oldest lens about circa 1966, while the 50 1.4S is just a couple years younger. Ray, there maybe other factors that may separate the 50 1.2 from the older 50s.

Paul, very good to see your work again and what amazing work with those artists at the concert!! And a 11 shot panorama of a live band, and so well executed, very cool indeed!

Craig, great start in this thread and good to see those Badland shots. Certainly a place worth visiting some day.

Pburke, that first shot of the road going through the Badlands is the best of the set. Very nice.

Rafael, nice capture of the Filipino dancers.

Sam, that last image of the restful cat with bright eyes is precious.

Philippe, super use of colors and light, and never expect anything less And right, where's Ben?

Georg, I like the fisheyed tree pointing at the lake, as well as the snowy pano with the deep blue sky.

Ray, your Frankenstein's got good eyes for the flowers!!

Reagan thanks for the shots of people in shorts and half sleeves That 25-50 seems to be having fun on your D600.

Samy

Couple of recent edits that I wanted to share. I still am working with my black and whites, I don't know why I struggle as much... As always, please give me feedback. I take all constructive criticism, good or bad. I just want to improve.

Series E 28mm...

Had some fun with this one, little creative editing... The picture was kind of boring before, but I think this helps it a lot. Series E 28mm


DSC_6170 by Kevin.Woodard, on Flickr

Trying out the 80-200 f/4.5 as a portrait lens. I think it shows some promise.

Kevin,

The first one works very well, I like the lines and angles all going to the yellow side wall. Maybe a slightly different crop - at the bottom crop away the vent.

I guess the second is a look through a glass window, came out nice. The portrait is good with that lens, only thing might be the focus a bit away from the eye. That zoom range is just perfect for portraits.

Reagan, really like the birds with the 105 and the D600. Now you just need a bit more reach.

Ray, the low angle view up the water trough is very nice.

Curtis, the Golden Gate in fog with the large rock is extremely nice.

Paul, great concert series.

Philippe, nice work with the 50 1.8. Nice colors and composition.

George, nice series. I like the second image of the small lake.

Great stuff everyone, hard to keep up!
