Very nice Jose. Cool shot of the ruins with Vesuvius in the background.

No polarizer here, so the haze is visible.

Dustin, terrific ad for that 200 F4 lens.

Curtis, super nice flowers as always. The white flower reminds me, do you get chromatic aberration with that 105 1.8 in high contrast edges? I also got a 135 f2 AI and although that hasn't seen much action yet, from my reading it also will have CA. Curtis or anyone else here, any suggestions on getting rid of CA. PSE 11 that I got recently doesn't seem to offer any help.

We did very well Reagan... I certainly enjoyed the company, the excellent beer and our lovely waitress. I was shocked when the owner mentioned her familiarity and love of Lagunitas beer which hails from my neck of the woods. What a great place that is!

Samy, I don't look that closely at my images, so if chromatic aberration is present I tend to ignore it. I'm pretty certain that Lightroom has a slider for dealing with it and you could also use the adjustment brush to reduce saturation where it appears. My guess is that others will have a solution for you.

Blossoms close at hand are enticing me to pick up my camera. Here are a few shots taken this afternoon with the 105 f/1.8 AI-s with two extension tubes attached, the PK-11a and PK12. The PK-13 wasn't handy so this is it...

Thanks Curtis, I have played around with the saturation and hue sliders for cyan and magenta. That may be the best way in PSE.

Here's some bokeh treatment, first with 55 1.2S, the next with the 105 1.8 AIS.

Wonderful Samy... never too much fine bokeh for me, here from two of Nikon's great MF lenses. Can't go wrong with either one. Well done.

I mounted the 300 f/4.5 AI-s ED-IF, largely because it was sitting on a cabinet in the living room when I noticed the blossoms on my neighbor's tree. This is what I caught...

Wide open, hand held... is there another way?



Nice work with the 300 Curtis.

Nice b&w Dustin. The 200 f4 is a nice lens.

Thanks Peter, Ray, Leighton, and Curtis but
No more tests for the sake of most people over here!!

The first from Pompeii, I was at southern border of the ancient city looking to Vesuvius, ~9.5 km away. Foreground is a "restored" vineyard originally in the same place 2000 years ago. Even with a polarizer, the atmosphere was not freed from haze at all.

Jose those are extraordinary photos. A trip of a life time. I agree whole heartily with all who commented.
Curtis you haven't changed a bit since the days of Citroen Dyane. Your flower shots are wonderful and definitely my inspiration! Speaking of the little pub with the great selection of brews.






Ronny congrats on the new lens. It is a beautiful thing to behold!
Samy nice catch by the river and your bokeh treatment is first rate!

Here are a few from today with the 85mm 1.4. Getting some more use from my D7000 before it leaves to find it's new home.

Thanks all for the comments.

Curtis, the flower set is gorgeous;
Samy, liked the bokeh playing;
Ray, the second flower (yellow) is spetacular.


One last before bed: a closer view of one of many vineyards inside Pompeii. The wall at background is the original one delimiting the vineyard inside the town.

Great contribution Jose. I'm not certain it will make Ray's decision any easier, however. I HATE neutral density filters that not only darken the image but also the viewfinder. Needless to say, midday shooting with fast lenses is not going to happen except in winter months when the sun is low in the sky.

Good luck sorting it all out Ray.

Thank you Curtis I just found out that the D7100 also has a low 50 iso setting along with the 1/8000 speed. That should help a lot with wide open daylight shots.
