The weather in DC, while not awful is certainly lacking in certain color's this time of year. To help out with the drearyness here are a couple from my New Years trip to Jamaica.... my wife and I went with 3 other couples to an all-inclusive and spent 4 days lying on the beach. Pretty fantastic way to bring in the new year. I managed to get a couple shots with my 35/1.4 or 105/2.5 with the D600;

It's going to be a busy day here today, we have 15 ewes due today or tomorrow. The second shot is what farming CAN look like. It's not always pretty animals out on nice green grass. I've just added the link as some may find it disturbing.

BTW, the last day with Nikki before going to Ray.

georgmx and oosty: Thanks for the kind words.

ronny: I like your color selection in the lamp shot.

mike-in-ak: Nice composition. Do you have any landscape orientation pictures with a close foreground taken with the 28 f/2.0 you can post (around f/8-f/11)? My 28 f/3.5 has too much field curvature in those situations and I'm trying to see if the 2.0 will work for me or if I need to spend more on the 1.8G.

Philippe - Love the self portrait, now let's see the real you!

Tony - You had to go and rub it in, didn't you?

Just been rushing about taking care of business, just today I had to run to the western union office and send a telegram. It is cold over here but the wires are unaffected.
(The D800 is a waste of pixels and bytes for this type of photography)

This is a Black Swallowtail butterfly larva that hatched around New Year's on some dill weed that my wife bought, which presented an opportunity to use my Nikon 200 mm f4 macro lens.

I don't think I have ever shot with anything higher than an /2.8 with either the 28 or 24. I specifically bought them for night work.

Here is one from the night of March 9, 2012 at the Alaska Veteran's Memorial MP 147 of the Parks Highway.

D700 - Nikkor 28mm /2.0 AI - ISO 800 - 6 secs - /2.8



The roofs in the foreground were just about 10 feet away. There is a bit of convergence. That is why I tend not to shoot the Aurora with anything wider than 20mm. I have seen some great shots with super-wides / fish-eyes when the lights are running from horizon to horizon but the distortion is more than my personal taste cares for.

Thanks Mike. By field curvature I meant curvature of the focal plane leading to OOF corners when the plane is close to you.

I prefer the diagonal placement of the lights that you've used as it gives a sense of movement to the them in relation to the stillness of the foreground.

Leighton, this is a very nice image. That little guy (gal) is very cute!

You are doing great work with Nikki. I know how much fun it was to shoot with her and it will be hard to send her on her way.

Leighton, Mark - great stuff. Leighton - yours is very abstract but still looks quite ordered.

Thanks Leighton, Scott, Ronny, Georg, Tony D.

Tony D - I'm using tilt and shift - mostly shift - but it's early days. All the images I posted used some movement . It's a very particular lens - got a lot to learn about it before I figure out how to use its capacities - especially tilt.

It's a very particular lens with lots of "problems" - distortion, severe fall off. But It focusses insanely closely.

Phillippe says he was about a metre from the boy in his bridge shot - well, he looks like he was an inch away from those tiles - yes, it focusses that close.
