Thanks Tony for the info. Probably the tag is for identification, but I hope it does not harm vulture's movements.

Last (big) update from Nikki's time in DC. Sorry for the long tail on getting these out the door... 8 more shots from Chihuly. If you ever get the opportunity I do recommend checking out his exhibits they are a photographers playground. All of the venue's I've been at have not allowed tripods but they are pretty well lit and you can crank the ISO to get your shutter speed. I'll bet some have a specific 'photographers day' that let you bring the tripod. Anyway, enjoy and TGIF!

Tony, fantastic series! These are all great. Hard to pick any favorites here. Like the first for its colors and geometry. At first glance, I thought the vultures were ceramic!

Hi guys, if possible I need a little help from the PC experts on here
I have a rare offering here in Brazil: a guy selling his 35mm f/2.8 PC Nikkor (last batch - black knob - production after 1980's); I managed to convince him to give a discont at R$ 1.000,00 (~US$ 465.00) including shipping and insurance.







Is this a good price? ( I have found it around US 700.00 on ebay!) Have you experienced this lens?

Thanks pburke!
It appears the the last production batch (black knob, AIS) after 1980 is better optically and even mechanically, from what I have researched in internet.

Here is a good article on the lens

The tag looks like a tag you woul put in cattle or sheep's ear. It is strange as it is not a normal bird leg band.

Georgous color from the glass art exhibit.

Hey everyone! Been gone from here for a long time (deployment to Afghanistan). Finally got home and settled down and shot a few of the kids with my 55/3.5 Micro on my D3000...

Gotta get my Upload/Sell membership renewed soon, pardon the links please...


Jeff, nice pelican shot. Definitely a nice happy accident

Tony, yup, I can see that one arm blurred there too.

This is just a side view, looking into the delivery of one of the presses. I was trying to get the motion of the grippers, but at 18,000 sheets per hour, they aren't going to be much more than a blur anyway!

I'm half tempted to go see what the pile looks like on Sunday, since it's supposed to be near or at a record breaking temp today (62F) and it's been raining pretty good.

Thanks all for the comments!

Leighton - I really liked your street sunset. I like the fact that you aren't centered on the street so you can see the storefronts.
Scott - Great color on the berries.
Jeff - I like the washed out look on the surfer.
Laura - All I saw on your sign was Free Naked Ladies! Cool shot with the snow.

Tony


Thanks Mark, no, no cars under that pile, they had the luck this time that snow happened on break. I started shooting and the dog's owner had her attention, but as soon as that shutter started making noise, I had her rapt attention for sure

Very amusing shot Laura. Love the small pile of snow as well, I hope your car isn't under it. I like the dog's expression in the second of the dog shots too.



Ronny, Nice shots of the older folks getting some exercise.

Have narrowed it down to about 7 cameras 3 of which are nikons
If anyone is shopping $275 PP and shipped thats what I paid for it
It is in EX condition
I won't put it on the board until tonight
like to keep it on this board and comes with a Nikon NC filter
The filter will be extra tonight but people here can ignore that

Congrats, Chuong, it is a nice lens

I am officially joining the fisheye club. Here is my 16mm f3.5 AI'd. I just took about 1hr this morning to make it AI.
Mounted on my D700 just fine now. I will have some images from it soon.

Some shots from Bregenz, with the 35-70mm excel the seagulls which was the 105mm. Miserable weather, even the ducks were unhappy. Still, who can be sad with such great lenses to play with.

Lovely, Chuong, love how the toys are all lined up there too Thinking of parting with my 16 f/2.8 in favor of the Rokinon 8mm HD though, since I've got the 16mm f/3.5

Jose, that is a lovely flower shot.
Leighton, I only used filing tools. I was afraid that I can damage it with the power tool. That's why it took me almost 1hr to get it done.
Georg, thanks. Yes, that image of her on the stairs was from the 15mm. I still keep that lens.
Ray and Paul, thanks. Great shots on your last post, Paul. I like the first one the most.

Here is a quick shot from my 16mm f3.5. My daughter wanting to be Rapunzel princess.

Peter, very nice set from the local market! I like especially the last two shots ("Heaven in every Bite" is quite a promise...). Btw, there's nothing wrong with spending some time with a fishing rod instead of a camera.
I've fished 2011 like a maniac and only a very few times last year. Missed the quiet hours on the water 2012...
Hope I can mix photography and fishing this year in a better way.

Peter, thanks for firing up the time-machine! Love your set from the 80's.

Tony from CA - the storm-front is wonderfully captured. I like especially the framing with the slim warped strip of earth under the sky.

Tony from DC - fantastic series with Nikki! My personal favs are #21, #24, #26 and the vultures-shots.

Scott, I like the your choice of framing on the gate-detail. Coming back to certain subject to shoot it in different light, maybe with different lenses or from another angle is always a good idea.

Chuong, nice action-shot with your 16/3.5!

Jose, another beautiful macro-shot! I hope you can find a cheaper copy of the 35/2.8 PC-Nikkor.

Jose, Leighton and Scott - thanks for your kind comments on the green-stuff-image!
