Peter I saw with much interest your photo of mousebirds. I have never seen these before and this is an excellent introduction!


Thanks Ray - they're pretty common in SA - we have 3 species and have an interesting history. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mousebird

Took 5 minutes and ran outside with the PK13 and the 135mm Nikkor-Q... I am in love! Probably falling into the banal category (can't believe I am saying that now!), but handheld, spur-of-the-moment...I love the possibilities. One thing of note!!! Focus conformation dot is razor sharp, I have maybe 1mm of play when I had 8~10 before.

8x10 crop, white balance corrected, basic sharpening in ACR


Excellent shots - is #2 a bottlebrush or flowering gum?

Nice shot Peter. They are furry looking little guys.


Thanks Scott - their body feathers are fine and "furlike" and when they land in a bush it looks like a controlled crash!

Mark - I'm glad we're getting closer - soon we'll be in the Eurozone and will have to brush up on our Italian NIce night shot.

Kevin, love the shots of the flowers with the tubes. Very sharp and great work.

Curtis, also great shot with the red flowers and nice ones from the redwood park. That tree was born at least 100 years before the first Māori even arrived in my home country!

Mihai - All the best for your operation and I wish for you a swift recovery.

I'm overwhelmed by your solidarity and friendship guys! Apart of celebrating MF Nikkors this thread brings together great people around the world and I feel very blessed to be a part of it. I wish Curtis will realize one day that I'm not simply complimenting him when I express my thanks for his role!

P.S. John, congrats for 45/2.8. It's definitely more than a body cap and is even sweeter on D7K but great enough on D800. The simple Tessar design incorporates its own advantages over modern overcomplicated design.

No time this week and the lenses have been clamoring to be be put to use Just enough time to look at this page and Kevin, great work with adding the extension tubes. Curtis, someday if I ever make it back to Northern California, the redwoods would definitely be on the agenda. The concentric rings on the last tree image are awesome. A millenium-old tree, wow!

And Mihai, all the very best on a quick recovery.

Thanks for the compliment. I am not sure the type of plant. It's a very large bush that is near my apartment. Hummingbirds and bees love it once it fully blooms (this one is an early one).

My turn to stretch the screens 27 image pano.

Plettenberg Bay was first seen by europeans in 1487 when Bartholomew Diaz rounded the Cape of Good Hope. Later Portuguese called it Bahia Formosa and about 100 lived here for a time when their ship the Sao Gonclaves was wrecked in 1630.

Today it is probably the most popular summer holiday destination in SA and the nations richest own houses along the road above the beach to the left of the hotel.The road is Beachy Head Drive AKA Millionaires Row.

Great image! I see that waves pose the same problem for stitching for you as they do for me . . .

I have this problem too. I have been able to overcome it by overlapping more images to cover the scene. Then blend those areas. Its not perfect, but workable. I am hoping to do my 49 vertical stitch of San Fran this weekend and see how I did. I already know the colors will be flat as it was overcast and raining when I took the shots, so it might turn into more of an exercise.

Yes, healing brush is another good tool that slipped my mind. Clone tool is also very useful.

Thanks for the comments and input Scott, Kevin and Chuong. I did try the healing brush and cloning and also blurring all in PSE. We'll have to look at the next one!
