Fasnacht hit Winterthur today and with it the traditional Guggenmusik parade.

All taken with the 180mm and the 35-70mm which was a very handy lens in the circumstances.




Nice series Mark. Your MF work with moving subjects is very good.

Nice work Craig. I like the first and third images in this series.

Thanks for the compliments for the B/W... I am starting to understand how to previsualize images into black and white. You folks are rubbing off on me, I have grown so much as a photographer since finding you all.

Reagan - neat rusty bug. Nothing wrong with that lens.

Mark - excellent images from Faschtnacht.

Kevin - congrats on making a parking garage photogenic. Well done with the b&w and the pano.

Paul - I like #3 best in the series

Craig - nice set

Scott - yet more snow! I like them but aren't you guys fed up yet?

Chuong - tack sharp rust. Very nice.

Scott, I have really enjoyed your images of rural scenes as of late, they remind me of one of my favorite photographers, Richard Brown. I think you would like this book from him. I have read it at least 3 times and have learned a great deal.

Not much time to stop by lately, but here is a snap fresh out of the camera from about an hour ago. The good news is that our little Eli got a much needed haircut; the better news is that he has lots of practice playing with girls thanks to his aunts, which will come in handy once his new sister arrives.



Peter, Very inventive!

Here's an idea for all of you with 300mm f4.5 ED-IF lenses missing their tripod collars:

Since you can't find those original collars anywhere, some DIY was in order this weekend. Here are the ingredients:

a $9.95 ebay tripod collar made for the Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L , which is a little too wide for the Nikkor, but a strap of leather and some epoxy can easily make that inside diameter of the collar fit. When I first put it togehter, the leather was just a little too thick. Some sharp knife slicing later, I had it reduced to a size that

Thanks Peter. She finally got named Moggy Nikki. She's now been spayed, hence the loss of fur at her neck where they shave to put the IV in

THUD. Monty, it is possible to have both and dabble in both sides. I hope you haven't sold off that 85, either, it was magic in your hands. When I'm out and about, I carry both AF and MF in my bag, and there haven't been any explosions in there.

Good morning everyone. Some of you may remember me. I'm the guy that turns all of the color photos into black and white

Well, recently I purchased a D800 and one of those evil AF lenses. Sorry I've been having a lot of fun with it. Maybe too much fun. I plan on getting another one. My beautiful MF lenses are just sitting around doing nothing. I've decided to sell them. Before I put them on eBay I thought I offer them to you people. I'll sell them for what I paid plus $10 shipping on each lens.

A few weeks on full time should help cover the cost of your new lens lust without selling these off.

THe worst part of all this is that I no longer feel a part of this thread. I've posted in a few other threads, but none compare to the friendship I've found here! I'll stay in touch...

Just because the lenses are for sale doesn't mean they will sell. And yes, I'll continue to post....

I've very impulsive. Like a light switch. On then off then back on again. In a year or so I'll probably be buying them all over again

Monty



You could go both ways.. AF and MF, sell the car, and you'll have more free money for lenses

Bad thing about taking vintage cars out for a spin is they get filthy in about 5 min and you spend a few hours cleaning them

I hear the AF calling me again. I should have never borrowed one.
It's like a voice I can hear right in my ear saying SELL SOMETHING

Thanks Ray, the windows at school are tinted a bit too, so that helped with exposure.

The 105mm f/1.8 AI-s rarely disappoints when I use it for portraiture. It also helps having such a beautiful subject. Margot turned 5 months old a couple of days ago, and is really coming into herself. Here she is having some tummy time, tracking the cat walking across the room. Wide open at f/1.8, near the minimum focus.

At 30 pounds, Samy, he is definitely substantial. I don't get in his way if he gets "the crazies" and starts running around in the house.

That is one crazy mask, Mark, and nice and sharp shot!
