My American friends who visited Melbourne were very quickly identified as "seppos". It took me a long time to figure out what it meant.

saturday - nikon24mmPCE by benmorgan28, on Flickr


This and the 2nd shot are my favourites, and it seems ridiculously sharp. Do you have any qualms with sharpness on your D800? I've heard a few people complaining that the 24 PC-E isn't up to the level of the new sensors.

Very nice Chin. I take it the original is attractively colored. It would be nice to see the colors but your black and white rendition is nicely done. Can you translate the message printed to the right?


Heh yeah, spray-painted in full psychedelic colour glory. But Tri-X was all I had
Not really sure what it's trying to say - *something* for a dove; colloquialism for which I have no translation for

I think ALL of your lenses are stuck wide open!

The macro mode will work in a pinch, especially when you can crop away with the D800! I love how the light falls on this one.

That was shot at f/2 Leighton. I stopped down when shooting flowers that were blowing in the wind and didn't reset during the balance of my shooting. As much as I love shooting wide open, with really fast lenses, I'm learning that sometimes less is more. Yesterday I even stopped down to f/4...



I generally shoot candids now at f/2.8, reserving the widest shots more as bokeh play than anything else. Fortunately, the slower lenses such as the 180 f/2.8 AI-s, the 300 f/4.5 AI-s ED-IF and 400 f/5.6 AI-s ED-IF are wonderfully sharp wide open, which means there is no need to stop down with these lenses, or with the 80-200 f/4.5 AI.

Ron, great capture.
I am wondering how this zoom will perform with tubes or close up lenses. Need to experiment some day.

Leighton - that looks like clear skies to you? that's the middle of the day in Summer - look how dark and menacing it is. Looks like you've been at the grape juice too.

Peter - I expected the US members to flame me over my accent crack - but you? YOU?

Thank you Ronny - very kind as always.

Philip - are people complaining about the 24PCEl? that's crazy. Yes, it is ridiculously sharp, and great colour too. I haven't really figured out tilt and shift (I get shift, but tilt is hard to gauge). It's my current favourite lens - but it's new and you know how these things go.

Ben

As I am an incorrigible birder, a little bit of birding at Pompeii's Forum .
An improbable lens and a unusual environment for birding (a storage room for terracota dolia found in the excavations):


A little birding at Pompeii Forum by labecoaves, on Flickr

D7000 + Micro-Nikkor 55mm f/3.5 ai, ISO 1600, f/5.6 at 1/1600s. >~50% cropped. It looks like a female House Sparrow.



On a stone block with Nikki's daughter wide open + TC16A:


A little birding at Pompeii Forum 2 by labecoaves, on Flickr

D7000 + Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 K ai'd + TC16A (=136mm f/2.8), ISO 320, wide open at 1/4000s. ~50% cropped. It looks like a female House Sparrow.
I think this is not bad for a wide open 40 years old lens + the overlooked TC16A.

Laura, That's quite a nice looking Nubian. We had some of these when we first started farming. They're VERY friendly.



Laura I like this one very much. When you took this, at least you aimed higher than Leighton.

Nice Ron. Glad to see spring "might" be around the corner.

Absolutely stunning set Philippe! Great work. Your framing from very low in the last shot is a signature of your shooting style. I love it.

I so envy you the opportunity to be shooting in these magnificent settings. I am eternally fascinated with the grandeur of Europe. Sadly, we're a culture of strip malls and big box stores. I know that some of that is coming to Europe as well, but at least you have a few centuries worth of great art and architecture to feed the soul. I'm very happy you found us Philippe and that you continue to entertain us with your "growing" kit of a MF Nikkor lenses...
