Thanks Leighton, Ray, Curtis and Samy.

Samy, mine is not the OC version, yours Nikkor OC 35mm supposedly is better, since the "C" means multicoated.
One thing I noted last night is that the Nikkor O 35/2 is virtually free of coma already at f/2.8 (on a DX body though - on a FX body probably not), making it hopefully excellent for night sky shots.

Just noticed whatever Flickr does to images, makes this one look harsh...



Harsh or not, I liked it!! Any tube or close up lens used?

Tony, loved the vineyard pano;

Rafael, great sets with the 50-300 and 400/3.5. The sunrise background gives a special look at the images;

Samy, thanks for sharing your experiences with the TC16A + 400/5.6 (= 640mm f/9 lens). Were the shots wide open?

No way Reagan, keep them coming!
Are you feeling confortable with the viewfinder of the D600 + MF lenses focusing?

Yes, at first I thought it was smaller than my old D700 but I think it is just the body that is a little smaller.Starting to like it a lot

Thanks Jose, I just bought that 25-50
I have owned 2 before this one and there was something I didn't like about each one
Usually a sloppy focus ring
I was going to just watch it for a while and decide later but thats how I missed Chuong's 135/2

Another with great light. I think they ought to leave it there, it makes a nice sculpture.


Kinda has the look of an ocean liner like the Titanic run aground.

Nice capture Sam. From what I have read, this is a difficult lens to keep stable and to focus at f8. Well done. I like the compressed distance.

Testing the focus assist of the TC16a in low light with the 400 5.6 AIS (640mm, f8 I think). Still cloudy and left over snow cover from last night.

Nice work in the first image with the 400.

Hi...
You know how it is for me. I get a new lens and it lives on my camera for a long long time. Sadly my lastest lens is an AF. THe only MF lens that has gotten the AF off the camera is my 16mm.

Gallery walk last night.
At the coffee shop, local Pro Photographers displayed their work. Here Jim Koepnick and his wie are enjoying a cup of coffee

Monty, nice composition with the fisheye.

Keep trying Kevin! Maybe if you cropped out everything from the tree to the right side?


I often am very casual about how I shoot. I describe it as floating through space and simply shooting in the moment what catches my fancy. However, were I approaching this scene I would recognize the beautifully lit flowers as the subject I want to capture. I would know the tree is a distraction to avoid. Because of the way the flowers are facing, I'd likely step to the right so I could get a straight shot at the flowers with the tree out of the frame on the left. If that were impossible I'd step a bit to the left to catch the flowers in profile. Unfortunately, simply cropping the tree in this composition puts the right frame too close to the flowers.

I mention all of this simply to give you an idea of what my thought process is before I take a shot. Distracting elements can on some occasions be unavoidable, but those tend to be shots I discard. I also am prepared to rather brutally crop images when necessary to create a workable composition. Since I'm not printing, I can get a way with using very little of even a 12 megabyte image.

As Leighton says, keep working at it. We learn by doing.

Really Nice! I like yours a lot better than mine...

I got my 9-year-old son up early and we were closer to the stands than you were. When the charges going off he was really surprised at the concussion he felt - and all of the car alarms going off.

It was an amazing experience for him and has been the topic of most of his conversations since then. I guess I may have a budding demo engineer in the family (again!). My grandfather did explosives for Texaco and I was always irritated that he would not teach me.

Wow! What a gorgeous lens Reagan.

And Jose, you are doing a masterful job as my assistant lens pusher...

This is a beautifully built lens that produces wonderful color and contrast. It is also very flare resistant. It is an outstanding landscape lens in my experience. Congratulations Reagan. Have fun with it!
