Chuong, fascinating IR-image! What kind of filter did you use?

Mark, the very last shot is my fav from your series. Beautifully done!

Leighton, the video is too funny ("tail-action" ;-) - and I'm glad that the other job didn't get captured...



Georg,

I did not use IR filter. I have a D70s converted. This one shot with a ND filter that I wasn't aware it was on. I had about 15 minutes during lunch and it's a first nice day after weeks of no sunshine.

A "bit of a storm" hey, how much did you end up with? I love these, but I like this one the best, very peaceful seeming.

Scott, thank you! I hope everything is well after Nemo. I really like your snow-series, especially the gate-shot and the chimney (?) taken with the 105/2.5.

Ben, nice to hear/read from you! Love your street-detail. "Downunder" from below or so - refreshing point of view.

Thanks, Chuong! The first sunshine after some grey weeks is always very special and I'm glad you've caught this moment.
After some B&W-experiments with a Hoya R72-filter on un-modified Nikons I think about having my old D100 converted.

A couple from the 55mm micro that Leighton told me to use as a landscape lens due to it's excellent results and I have to agree with his assesment. Also another couple from the 180mm on a cold winters day.

As an aside, can I just say I love the snow, especially for clumsy people like me who drop their cameras face first into the ground, thanks to the snow I still have a 105mm lens!

Thanks to Nikon for the weathersealing so yes the camera was fine. The lens got quite caked in snow but a little dust-off and it was fine, as it was so cold the snow didn't melt at all so was quite dry and powdery which helped. The 105 has been a little overshadowed by the 180mm but getting it out on Sunday made me remember what a gem it is. I will post some pics from it later but I don't want to bore everyone too much at once.

Dustin, thank you.
Regarding the fisheye vs "conventional" UWA-lens - sometimes an image will look more natural when shot with a fisheye, in many cases a rectilinear lens is the one to grab.
The mighty and as a zoom unrivaled 14-24/2.8 was my go-to-lens for the last 4 years, but lately I've felt I would shoot every picture the same way when using the 14-24.
Time to re-discover the joys of using a quality fisheye-lens or to play more with stitched panos.
The 20/3.5 or 24/2.8 should make a nice companion to your 14mm. Both lenses are fairly compact and will take

I appreciate this observation Georg. Even with the best lenses we can at times get into a rut. That was my experience with the wonderful kit of L lenses I owned when shooting Canon. I started with rather pedestrian lenses and noted the improvement as I invested in better glass. That was certainly rewarding and I was generally pleased with what all of those lenses produced. But when I stumbled on the Nikon MF lenses after buying a D700, I experienced something quite different and extremely satisfying. Exploring with lenses that have a bit of character adds zest to life. I appreciate, of course, that for a pro, you need the money shot in order to get paid. If the latest and greatest gets you there will a minimum of hassle, that is not a bad thing. But your presence on this thread tells me that you're having fun with these wonderful older lenses. That we can buy then without breaking the bank makes such play more available to more photographers. All good, in my opinion.

And I'm loving the work you're doing with the 16 f/3.5. Shooting with a fisheye really demands thoughtful consideration of one's subject. As you note, it is not suited for every occasion, but where it works, it does quite delicious things. Your work with the lens demonstrated that wonderfully. For Ray on a DX camera, it can make a wonderful wide, but on FX it becomes very evocative. Great fun!

Agree completely Chuong, this is a stunner. It does strange things to me mind... A great way to use a fine old camera as well. Where/how was the conversion done?
