Laura, beautiful portrait of the even-tempered goat;-) I prefer #2 of the still-life.




Really like the ceramic artist shot, and how you used her tools and other pottery all around.

Tony, just use a couple of rubber bands to close it up.

Thanks for the info on the bubbles Rafael. They do seem very protective, but like John, I like to carry light when possible. The bags he linked to look perfect and not too expensive. It's funny, but at the rod run today they were handing out free beer cozys. The 16mm fit perfectly in it! It just doesn't have a drawstring to close the top, but for free, I thought it a decent solution. I will have to take a picture of it later.

Thanks Tony, the 55 was on a tote bag that is one of the premiums. The card in front that I propped against the m&m dispenser is one of their regular cards.

Chin, agree with Laura above, the graffiti creature jumps out of that image!

Georg, very nice snowy looks through that 16mm fisheye!! Especially the one with the tunnel effect.

Kevin, the last tulip is the most isolated and I really like that one.

Monty, exciting time, very nice to hear.

Philippe, James said it well, my 28 3.5PC and 24 2.8 AIS seem very inadequate after those opera shots, but then I realize you will get the results with those lenses too


Well here we had Reaganish temperatures today although it won't last very long At least we can enjoy Reagan's sun and beach pictures until spring finally makes more than a fleeting appearance.

Pburke, really enjoyed the b&ws especially the one with the views through the car windows.

Curtis, great treatment of the guitars at the music shop.

Tony, outstanding shot of the red car with the fisheye. Love the red against the blue sky, the sunstars on the car, even the lane marker drawing a border around the car.

Mark, great closeup capture of the blue flower!! Great colors, and perfect point to focus on.

Ron, very nice work with the extension tubes and the zoom. Looks like a rodent with ears

Jose, each of those shots in Pompeii are terrific.

Peter, such a nice portrait of Ingrid's dad with the 5cm !! And he looks very happy to pose.

My feelings of photographic inadequacy peaked this morning, knowing I would be hard pressed for subjects, I am unable to sublimate icicles, or nubian sheep, we have some adobe missions, but are sorely lacking in marble cathedrals, any ruins of interest are south of the border, and I have not found any baroque or modern impressionistic opera houses.

But one must do the best with what one has, and photograph we must, so I took advantage of the 78 Deg weather and took my most willing subject out, to take a picture of her among a bouquet of flowers.

This was the 85mm 1.8 K, on D3, do we prefer the 1.8 or the 8.0 photo?

no processing in the above images

when I pass, this car will be placed as a marker in a style similar to this wheelbarrow below, this is a heavily processed photo.

Yes, I've learned that lesson too, I normally have a camera with me at all times, except at school, since I don't need to lug both the camera bag and book bag up and down all those stairs.

David, I've learned that lesson and I dare say most on this thread have. If you're going to invest in a DSLR system then why not take it everywhere! My theory is not to trust important trips by trying to go light. YMMV.

There's really only one answer IMHO on which 35mm. The 35mm f1.4 AI-s and I don't even own it. I'm judging by the fantastic images I've seen in this thread from the folks who have it. Now...if I were to choose an AF 35 it would most probably be the new Sigma 35/1.4.



James. Not sure if I want to try redoing my collection or not. First I'd need to clear off space to set them all up Beautiful product shot!

Bummer James. Maybe you can uninstall it, then reinstall it, or have Windows repair it. I'm a big fan of it myself.

Not much time these days, but I grabbed a few just before dinner. Now's the interesting time of year as sunset is around 7pm which allows one to get out after dinner. When it gets to be around 9pm that's when I'll break out the long glass for some shots of the Olympics or downtown.

For now I've got these:

Reagan, really like the composition of the 1st and 3rd fishing shots.

Georg, beautiful work with the 16mm. I wasn't a fan of fisheyes, but your work, and that of others on the forum, is changing my mind.

pburke, love the Bodie film set.

Steve, gorgeous Azaleas.

Our azaleas are blooming in South Georgia so I decided to take out my Nikon 75-150mm Series E f/3.5 MF lens that I bought for around $80. I bought an adapter to put on my Olympus OM-D and did a few quick shots. I have read alot of good reviews of this lens but haven't had a chance to use it much. It's a fun lens to use and not too bad for under $100.


Welcome Steve,

Lovely images, but just so you'll know, ALL photos shared in the thread MUST be from Nikon MF lenses mounted on Nikon cameras. Please take a minute and read the first post where Curtis lays out the objective. http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/929565

I notice from your profile that you have Nikon cameras, so don't hesitate joining in on the conversation and showing more of your work. We'd love to see more from the South!

Rafael, only plan to occasionally use it, haven't done much with it yet. Interestingly it is exactly the same dimensions as the 50mm 1.4S Auto.

Laura, peek a boo at f2 is very cute And the camera seems the more interesting and handholdable load for the tote bag.

John, very nice panorama, reminds me in spring to try one of Baltimore. And great light for your daughter's portrait.

Jeff, very cool rust shot.

Adding to Leighton's welcome, I had a couple years in Atlanta, but its been a few years now. Saw a bit of Georgia, but I don't believe I went even as far south as Macon, would be great to see that state through Steve's work.

I remember so many flowers blooming in spring in Atlanta that there seemed to be paint running down the streets with a bit of rain.

Great news Monty. Congratulations to Margaret and I bet you're looking forward to being a Grandfather. I like the photo, good use of the 16mm. Bit hard to tell but is your darling daughter about to give you the webex salute?

Hi Rafael,

Normally I'd say the 1.8 photo to remove the distracting cactus behind the car but at 8.0 the red seems much more vibrant and the car is beautiful enough to draw the eye away from the background so I have to say I prefer 8.0 in this case.

By the way, you may not have icicles to photograph, but you have the sun. I know which I'd rather have...

May I share a few from Grindelwald where we spent a week off, just skiing, on sledge runs an sleeping?

4 from the arrival day: quite some snow, and we got to remove the icicles...

The first three are takten with the 105/2.5, the last one with the 35/2. All on D3.

But then, going to the mountains is all about... mountains!

The avalanche on the last one is considered... well, quite BIG looking, but not that dangerous. As long as you aren't in it, of course.

"Wetterhorn", with 105mm/2.5, 35mm/2.0, 50mm/1.2 on D3.

It's only now I see the quite heavy vignetting of the 35mm... hmm...
