This afternoon... setting sun and daffodils... shot with the 105 f/1.8 AI-s at f/2.



Spring seems to have arrived in California. It was a beautiful day today...

Kevin, thanks for the comments on the old camera images.

Leighton, looking forward to some work with your new 28 2.8.

Samy, more nice images from DC.

Ron, that floor at Longwood looks like water!

Rafael, really like the lake images.

Curtis, daffodils! What are daffodils? They are hiding below ground here. Nice image BTW.

Rafael, very much enjoyed the subject and the top notch execution of the pictures from Lake Coatepeque.

Samy, great job on the memorial war series, I especially like the B&W conversions.

Kevin, wonderful b+w conversions on the building abstracts a few pages back!

Ray, I'll join in the chorus of praise for the zoo shots, outstanding. You make that 300 shine.

Ronny, that Zeiss lineup is just too much, good thing it's definitely too rich for my blood.

Hope all the eye problems and convalescing is close to being done, well wishes to all.

Ray

Thanks for the welcome, Curtis. Don't worry, I have no intention of challenging your collection!

Wow, dafs already? We are at least a month away form those, though the shoots have been showing for some time.

Beautiful photo - makes me look forward to Spring.

p.s. They call them jonquils down south.

Why do I see that 500 reflex so inexpensive? The shots I have seen with it are great? Is it tough to use? I know it's not very fast...but the shots all seem quite good..

What to do. what to do. what to do. I think I have my D7000 w/kit lens sold. Now do I wait to get the D7100 or, go for the D600 for sale locally for $1500 with 1000 actuations or a refurbished one or one listed on the B&S?

Whoa! I can't believe I'm reading this! Ray without a DX camera? After all the glowing comments about the D7100?

You know what a big fan I am of FX cameras Ray, but the problems the D600 is having would make it a tough buy for me. Of course, Leighton could have a different opinion and his would be based on first hand experience rather than cyber chatter. I'd definitely solicit his opinion before deciding. Of course, if your camera is soon gone, you'll have a three week wait before the D7100 is available and that assumes it arrives when promised. B&H says March 21...

Good luck Ray. I've no doubt that whatever camera is in your hand you'll make fine music with it...

The lens is sharp but has a very narrow DOF which makes focusing in anythin but bright light very tough. It's also not popular due to the "donut" bokeh. That said properly stabilised and with a fast enouigh shutter speed it can produce some astonishing images.

This is not a great shot but does show the bokeh. Giant Eagle Owl, Kruger National Park, 1990 Nikon AF 401 500mm + 2x extender






Full frame to illustrate bokeh

Monty - good to see you back. Now let's see some new pics with your new weapon and old lenses!

Reagan, Monty, Samy, Curtis, Laura - thanks

The lens pusher has always been active. He probably cornered tha market 5 years ago and reases them slowmy to keep the prices up

Ron - Longwood gardens always seems to have something to offer despite the season. Very nice.

Rafael - beautiful images of a marvellous looking place.

Another 500mm image - this time with the TC14b attached ( to fit it one has to remove the rear filter)

Cape Bulbul from our deck at about 15 metres. It is less sharp than it should be, probably due to the condition of my eyes which are still blurry. Full frame.

Ron, beautiful picture.

I wanted to share the trip to lake Coatepeque in El Salvador, this is a crater lake, very deep, not sure how large but large enough. the tallest mountain around it is the Santa Ana Volcano, about 9,000 feet, all the forests around are really coffee farms. My dad was a coffee farmer, we lived in the nearby town of Santa Ana and had a house on the lake where weekends were spent fishing, snorkeling, skying, the nights going by boat to our friends houses for parties and games.
