Thanks Curtis. Your Yucca shot is terrific. With the textured leaves and curly fibers it's a really interesting plant to shoot. I love one of it's common names, the Spanish Bayonet. Great photos of, and around, the Golden Gate!

Ray, Ray and Samy thanks for the comments.

Ronny, really nice gull and dog shots.

Samy, gorgeous shot of the patient bird.

And one more of Nikki checking out the Golden Gate bridge... also shot with the 35 f/2 O AI'd, which is a very sweet lens beautifully made.

I like this composition Curtis. She does look like she is having fun.

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 . . .


John, I really like the first one in this series. Great light and color.

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!


Very nice Peter!

Like this Curtis. When Nikki visited here, she posed on top of one of these for me at Letchworth State Park.

Hi all, although it's a lot time I don't post I read you quite regularly: great pictures as usual.

I haven't had much time to photograph during the last months, all I have to show you is a test shot (@ 28mm and f/11) taken with my last buy, the 28-45mm f/4.5 zoom.

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8523/8585153471_d272d5ca8e_b.jpg

4200x2800

I'm quite surprised by the image quality produced by this almost 40 years old piece of Nikon history; due to size limit of my hosting web site picture has been resized to D700 resolution (from D600), but the full resolution version is plenty sharp too.

Here is the zoom photographed
...Show more

The 28-50 3.5 is a nice little zoom. Several people here on this thread have used it with excellent results. Lookinf forward to your comparisons.

Hello all. Pretty soon I will be in the market to add to my lens collection. I am thinking of either a 35mm, or, my preference, the 25-50 4 ais.

Any thoughts on best option? Seems I saw some shots here from the 25-50, but can't locate them now. My thinking is that lens and the 105 would be a great travel kit, except for the low light options...


That would be a nice travel combo. I carry the 28-50 3.5 and the 105 as my lightweight travel combo when low light is not anticipated.

Some morning blend stacking:

setup just like the strawberry image above, but with Nikkor Q 135mm f2.8, and all my K1 through K5 tubes. I should have incremented the stack even slower, since there are some fuzzy beans in the pile. Vignette was added in post - the lens was just fine at the edges, but it looks better this way.

http://didnt.doit.wisc.edu/photo/forum_pix/fredmiranda/105mm/coffee_stack_blended_web.jpg

I used up some of those while processing the above images



I like the detail and richness in this one.

Lots of terrific shots all. I haven't been in much to comment but it seems like the quality of work has only improved since I left. Perhaps there is some positive correlation! .

Curtis, your work with Nikki is stunning, probably some of the best of the entire trip. Did her hood ever turn up?

Great shot Curtis

Testing with the Tc-200( Disadvantage is that it strengthens CA ..although you can not get everything;-) but I am very satisfied how it performs.. get 360mm f5.6 and 270mm f4 on Fx for barely 40 dollar is insane

Ronny, simply spetacular images IMHO! Well done!

Thanks Ray, Leighton, Jeff, Ronny, Samy and Scott.

Jeff and Curtis, loved your curly yucca;

Curtis, great sets with Nikki;

Roberto, welcome back, and what a test with the 28-45; looking forward your comparison with the other zooms;

Samy, excellent bird shot and I liked the grain;

Kevin, very impressive set;

Pburke, awesome food stuff set, excellent stacking, light and rich details !



A break from Pompeii to make a humble homage to the 40 years of Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon with "Nikki's daughter":


_D6A0503_VNX-convert-WEB by labecoaves, on Flickr

A humble homage to the 40 years (today) of the magnificent Pink Floyd album.
This is one of those 20 CDs to bring at a desert island, at least IMHO.

D600 + Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 K ai'd & CPU'd + 4T close up lens + tripod, ISO 640, f/2 at 1/30s. ~10% cropped. The close up lens allowed a ~0.4m or less of focusing distance.

Funny to know that in the meantime of the making of this album they had time to perform live at the Amphiteatre of Pompeii

Welcome to FM Goran and welcome to the MF Nikon Glass thread.

Excellent shots with the 105/2.5 - definitely a perennial favorite lens around here.

Keep the shots coming!
