Reverse macro with my Series E 50mm f/1.8 @ f/8 (EXIF can't read a reverse mounted lens). Also used my SB15 Flash (its older than the lens, but still works great!) Intended to use it in the Weekly Assignments contest (which is shallow DOF) but I don't have a membership...sigh... I was shooting the f/1.8 lens from my old 8mm movie camera. The DOF here spans only the text...

Very nice Kevin. The conversion works perfectly.

Of course I had a lot of time on my hands waiting for PanSTARRS to show, so I took these just after sunset.

The light was very nice and pretty dynamic . . .







I love the cold tones of this one John, well done.

More with the 135 f2 AI.

This deer was cropped from a picture of a large herd which literally passed through in a matter of maybe 30 seconds, just enough time to grab the camera, adjust shutter speed and aperture and of course turn the focus ring The rest were in a rush to get to where they were going, but this one stopped and stared back through the window.

1/1600s, f/5.6, ISO 640.







And a kitty picture, same lens. 1/400s, f/2, ISO 640.

John, very nice work on the comet, I especially like the 400 5.6 image. The 500 F4P will really suite your landscape/astro work. I am presuming its sharp across the frame, I have never really tied looking closely at edge IQ on mine though.

Kevin, great reverse macro work. That's the toughest since you are really without any exposure info.

Curtis, terrific pano of the Golden Gate bridge. Is that little islan behind it Alcatraz. My SF geography is weak since I haven't been there in quite a while.

Mark, hope everything's fine with your eye. That's scary to get any injury in the eye area.

Really nice images - too many to comment on since the Seacom cable was broken off Egypt and our internet has slowed to a walk.

However, despite a bit of rain I have this abstract with the 500mm f8 (maybe it will appear - 8 minutes to reach "Photo 1" stage!

Thanks Samy, Laura, Dean and Rafael.

Curtis, spetacular pano with the 35/2 O and flower with 80-200/4.5 + tube;
Dean, loved your street shots;
John, great capture of the comet and awesome sunset light reflected in the water;
Samy, beautifully captured deer;
Peter, liked your "abstract" with the 500/8 mirror.

Some more from the Forum at Pompeii:


Pompeii's Forum general view with Nikkor 20mm f/2.8 AIS by labecoaves, on Flickr

General view of theForum at Pompeii, with some remnant marble floor, temple of Jupiter at the centre and Vesuvius at the far background. I used a CPL filter to minimize the haze.
D7000 + Nikkor 20mm f/2.8 ais CPU'd + Hoya CPL, ISO 320, f/8 at 1/400s.




Forum's Colonnade before the House of Eumachia, Pompeii:



Forum's Colonnade before the House of Eumachia, Pompeii by labecoaves, on Flickr

A reasonably preserved collonade of the Forum, just before the House of Eumachia.
D7000 + Nikkor 20mm f/2.8 ais CPU'd, ISO 320, f/5.6 at 1/2000s. ~15% cropped.





Colour and B&W versions of the "Tops of Arch of Drusus and Vesuvius".
Though I am neither a B&W expert nor a PP guru (far from that!!), I think the trivial B&W reveals more Vesuvius details through the haze.
D7000 + Micro-Nikkor 55mm f/3.5 ai + TC16A (= 136mm f/2.8) hand held, ISO 320, f/11 at 1/500s.
The arch is just at the left of a Jupiter's temple column.

Samy, the lighting and colors of "March Mangos" are really nice. Bambi too.

Scott and Mark, sorry about two more months of winter crack, but with shots like Mark's panos I can't help myself.

Mark, hope your eye heals quickly.

Laura, congrats on the 300mm.

Dean, terrific street shots.

Ray, really nice BB photos. The band in motion and the lighting of the 3rd image are nicely done.

Curtis, beautiful Bay shots.

Thanks Rafael. That's Big Bear taken from 29 Palms.

Kevin, another cool b&w.

John, great comet shots, and the lighting on the ferry and water is beautiful.

Peter, "Rain on the Deck" is very creative and well done.

Jose, I was struck by the exposed brick work on the preserved colonnade. A rare and attractive photo.

WOW Curtis, Nikki or not this is fantastic! I've made it my desktop. I love what you've been showing us with Nikki. She is one capable chunk of metal in the right hands such as your's. Now....how about some iconic SF street cars?


I'm definitely planning a trip to San Francisco and a cable car ride is likely to be part of the day but I've done so much shooting the last three days I'm exhausted! Checking Lightroom I see 479 photos taken and most processed. For the moment I'll simply post what I've already taken.

John, always loving seeing your photos of Puget Sound. Seattle is a very beautiful place. I really think you need that 500 f/4 though...
