All of the talk about the 85mm 1.4 AIS I had to get out today for some shots of NMFL's Monty you MUST keep this lens. It is a real gem!

I love love this one Ray. I keep going back and forth between the 85/1.4 and the 135/2. Decisions... decisions.

Just a quick note that the 400mm 3.5 with the TC16a does work well enough for the D800 but is not as sharp as the same lens with the TC300.

Here is an secretary bird with the TC300 on a D3

Since I totally agree that I need to work on composition, can you all recommend any online books or articles on composition? I know the thirds rule, bit about leading lines, but that's about it.


Here you go Kevin, I like Bryan Peterson's the best. I like his style of teaching. Look him up on Youtube as well as Adorama and B&H. All three have great tutorials all the time.

Looking at your pictures is about all I'm up for at the moment! Caught viral conjunctivitis from Ingrid who was over it last week. Not a pretty sight!


Peter, I hope it goes away soon. In cattle we call it Pink Eye. One of the "old timers" remedies was to rub salt in the eye!

Really cool shot of one of my favorite birds. They are very adept at killing snakes.

The first of these two is stunning Ray, love the colours, the background, the sharpness, the simplicity of composure...

Thank you Samy, Reagan, Curtis, Jeff, and Tony for the winter scene comments. Since the weather forecast is calling for it to continue, I will be posting more images of the same.
