I love it when the weatherman is wrong. It wasn't supposed to do this today! I stepped out on the porch to snap this.

The luck is that she's in the shade and the background's in the light. The cheating is that I bought up her face. In the original that's just black, a silhouette. But by bringing the light up on the face it draws the eye - and makes the figure pop out of the shadow - creating a 3D effect

Looks like a great subject for a Micro Nikkor and some extension tubes!

The ai and ais were about $300 max about 3 years ago on various sights... upwards in 6-700 now, might as well buy some zeiss ze or zf glass for that price.

Nice Stuff DD.

I have been busy, my friends are taking advantage of me and having their pictures taken, it is kind of fun but I do not like responsibily in photography, only fun. I am not new to manual focus lenses, I just never went autofocus, don't like the lens/camera choosing where to focus on maybe 'cause I started early and the F4 focused acurately but not conveniently and no better than my eyes for most stuff.

D3 nikkor 35-200mm, noone uses it as half of them are so bad, but the other half are so good, and cheap.

Much rather be using the 400mm 3.5, here with the TC16a, and be photographing nature. (Are humans nature?) The TC16a because I can focus a 200mm on a bride, but not on a 640mm on a bird.

Thanks Leighton. Hope your achilles is getting better.

Peter, very nice candids of the boys.

Bob, great flowers.

Jim, delicious looking lunch!

Rafael, beautiful bird shots.

Ben, love the look of your 24mm PCE shots. Customs House is a real special photo.

Here's one from today with the plain old 28mm 2.8 which is just fine. I don't need a 24mm PCE, I don't want a 24mm PCE ...

WOW, that looks like a neat bag. I've got lots of big and bulkies. Now to hunt one down, if they aren't selling these in the Nikon store....

I have tried so many camera bags over the years and found that to carry all of the lenses that I wanted it was always so big and wide that I hated lugging it around. I think that I have finally found one to meet my needs in this Nikon promo bag that were given away with D800's. It is narrow, only 5 inches. Deep enough for my 300mm 4.5 and wide enough to carry with a little planning, 5 lenses plus one on the camera.

The results have to be sold to local fish factories. They go to sea in small boats powered by low HP outboards and have no navigational aids - in foggy weather they stay ashore as quite a number are lost at sea each year.

Not much time to stop by lately, but here is a snap fresh out of the camera from about an hour ago. The good news is that our little Eli got a much needed haircut; the better news is that he has lots of practice playing with girls thanks to his aunts, which will come in handy once his new sister arrives.

Great raptor shots Rafael!

Do you find that the 400/3.5 does better up close than at distance?
