Leighton, this pictures looks great! This man reminds me about a character called Ray from the ol' TV show EWING...

Jose, nicely done flowers with the diopter.

Ray, the interior of the mansion kinda reminds me of the Hearst Castle opulence from the west coast close to Curtis.

Ben, the Nikki portrait is just what the doctor ordered to complete the world circuit. The Pitt St mall shot is just outstanding, the PP is just right.

Leighton, it's good to see market shots again. My fav is Peg and friend.

Samy, thanks for the very clear presentation of edge sharpness between the 20 and 24.

Curtis, the 105 2.5 P is looking terrific on tubes, the background is just right softness and almost glow. Your secret sauce B+W portrait conversion is top notch as well!

Georg, your cnon and theater shot is the kind of thinking to illustrate a story that separates the men from the boys.

Kevin, how did you get the daddy long legs to stay that still? Regardless, well done. I really like the dandelion close up too. It's now on my must try list for summer.

In Autumn this tree is full of fruit and all the fruit eaters in our neighbourhood congregate to gorge themselves.

This was taken through the close kitchen window this afternoon.

Got out this evening - brr, windchill right at freezing.

Been reading really fast when I get breaks, nice work everyone. Maybe I'll return tomorrow and add some well deserved comments on some great images.

Love this one Ray

This is for Curtis:
A simple real word subject test for bokeh comparing one of the "queens of bokeh", the 105/2.5 P vs. the 200mm f/4 QC.

Nikkor-P 105mm f/2.5 (Sonnar) ai'd vs. Nikkor Q.C 200mm f/4 ai'd, both wide open
D600, ISO 200, no PP, straight from the camera - conversion at ViewNX 2.7 and resizing at CS5.
The 105 image was cropped to reach 200mm FOV.
As no PP was made, the pictures were taken at the same time (~10:57-11:02h) and sun light, and the D600 config was the same, colours differences (bluish 105, yellowish 200) are supposedly lens related.

I think this is

Great comparison Jose. The 200mm looks great in these photos

Thanks Reagan, Leighton, Jose, Ray and Samy.

Leighton - love the new mug shot. Feels like I'm talking to someone else - was so used to the last one.

I'll try with nikki - but it was really hopeless over the weekend - you guys have intimidated me. At least there's one shot for the log.

I like this one Ray. I've often wondered who could live this way. Even if I had the money (that'll never happen ) I wouldn't want a place so extravagant.

Thanks Ben, do I look like an Aussie? Now if we could get you to post one. And don't worry about feeling intimidated, we all feel that way.

There's a lot of flora shots on here lately so I'll add a couple more. Both taken with the 180mm.

+1 , great set of the mansion, Ray!
When it comes to architecture - there's one mans work I would like to explore with (or even without) a camera: it's Jose's fellow countryman Oscar Niemeyer.

Leighton, very nice series from the market! I like especially the B&W-portrait. The wind-bent tulips are very nice too (a higher point of view would make the background a bit cleaner).

Ray, the DLL moved on me a couple of times. I think because of where it was, it was resting. Was there all day. Because of the movement, I had to crop. I hope the image holds up printed. The children's center on campus expressed interest in the shot as well as some of the others I took. They think the kids would like them. Going to talk to my department and see if they would be willing to print and mount them for the kids.

Peter, very nice series of the "bottergat"!

Jose, interesting bokeh-comparison! I like the rendering of both lenses - not extremely buttery, but still very nice.
The column-shot is fantastic, like the others from this place.

Samy, very nice portrait of the singing Cardinal! The edge-comparison between 24/2.8 and the old 20/3.5UD reflects my findings.

Ben, the portrait of Nikki really stands out ;-) Great idea and so well carried out. The harbor-shot is excellent too - love the light, and the ghosting spot is the icing on the cake (love it).

Ray from Ohio - great work at the fallen timbers monument. I prefer the horizontal image over the "tighter" shot.
And: thank you for your comment on the cannon-image! The choice of words to describe the theatre's financial situation here gets more and more dramatic, that's why the heavy artillery in or as my visual language.

Curtis, beautiful portraits of the sportsman! I've noticed that your late SEP-processed pictures suit my personal taste better than your earlier ones (some images from San Francisco as example were a bit too light in the midtones). Great job!
