Samy, Kevin, Ronny, Ray, Philippe. As usual amazing shots from you guys.

Ray, you need to change your profile, for sure your shots are worth far more than 100 words.

Kevin, I think the woman's face works really well and you tree and moon shot combo is stunning to say the least.


Here's some bird shots with the 300mm f4.5 and a 1.4x teleconverter. Not to the standard of certain others on this forum but fun to take (if cold).

Here are some recent shots. First three are with the Series E 28mm (first one is a reverse macro) and the last is the 80-200mm f/4.5. I have also been working on my B/W conversions. Zichar (Chin) kindly sent me a magazine on converting images for B/W with a variety of different techniques. Hope you approve Chin!

BTW, this is not a crop. I had the penny standing up on my 80-200 and the camera sitting on a small stack of books...

This one was INCREDIBLY harsh light. I didn't do any gradient masks or anything like that.

Kevin, I like these two a lot! The conversion worked very well. I also like your moon shoot, but I can't tell if that's some kind of processing artifact or just the clouds on the lower left side.

Hi there,
I was a bit off the tracks. Great photos everyone!

Kevin, wow, your late B&W-work is really great, I'm glad to see that you have found your personal "formula" for perfect processing (and shooting too). The parking-garage-shot (the arrow) is fantastic as are the architecture-details a few posts back. Keep em coming!

Ray, your animal-portraits are excellent! The 300/4.5 works wonders in your hands.

Ronny, the $70 were wisely spent - love your shots from winterly Sweden.

Samy, very nice round-up of the 28/3.5 PC's mechanics.

So much for now, will come back later.

Instead of reading up on clouded leopards, I ended up on eBay looking at '300mm f/4.5's
Surely a sign of excellence in my books...
My wallet says uh-oh!

Kevin - these are different, interesting and really worth looking at. You were far too hard on yourself a couple of weeks ago!

Mark - these are very good - they are small birds and the light can't have been fantastic. That is a really pretty Tit!

Thank you Ronny, Leighton, Samy, Jeff, and Ray for the train comments.

Ronny, your latest dock image with the grass in the foreground is very nice.

Leighton, the second train image was taken at near minimum focus distance. You are going to like your 28 2.8.

Samy, the raindrops are nice. I favor the b&w as the leaves really pop.

Ray, the leopard image is fantastic.

Kevin, your b&w work is really nice. Like the lines in the architectural shots.

Welcome back Philippe. Another great candid with the 180.

This will be fun. Maybe you can help me with my next Nikon MF lens purchase!

I bought a Rokinon 85 1.4 with chips that does not seem to be working on my D700. So I am returning it tomorrow, and am not going to replace it. Will keep with my 85 2 ai until I find an 85 1.4 ais that is reasonably priced. Months or years.

So I will have ~ $400 in my lens kitty to work with. Here is my set now: 28 2.8 ais, 50 1.2 ais, 85 2 ai, 105 2.5 ais, 135 2.8 ais. Also have a 35-70 2.8D and 70-210 4 in auto focus.

My thinking is one of the following: 20 4 ai, 180 2.8 ED, 300 4.5 ED IF.

Any thoughts will be appreciated. I will take your comments in mind, and prioritize my ebay search accordingly. No rush, here...
