Like many others, I've taken advantage of the nice new Nik pricing and had a go at these. Have no idea what I'm doing but luckily have a nice subject

All taken with the 50mm f/1.2 Ai-S.

Loved the conversions, Dean. An old looking atmosphere, very attarctive IMHO at least.

Mark, is that a hawk?


UmI think it's a red kite, there was a kite and what I think was a honey buzzard around, but I think the pointy wings mark it as the kite. Probably. It's definitely a bird of some description at least.

Ok, this is what I think was the buzzard and it's a different shape to the other so hopefully that's right.

Some of the last shots from Pompeii, perhaps tomorrow I will be posting the firsts from Herculaneum.

These are some brickwork examples from the ancient city, all exposed due to the fact that stucco or other external surfaces were destroyed with the time and or escavations.


Pompeii's brickwork at one of the walls in House of Apollo by labecoaves, on Flickr

D7000 + Nikkor 20mm f/2.8 ais CPU'd hand held, ISO 400, f/8 at 1/400s.
External wall of the House of Apollo, showing at right large rectangular tuff blocks ("opus quadratum") and at the left smaller irregular stones ("opus incertum"). These mixed patterns are not uncommon at Pompeii, perhaps reflecting the 62 AD earthquake that virtually destroyed large parts of the town, which was at reconstruction until 79 AD.






Pompeii's brickwork II by labecoaves, on Flickr

D7000 + Nikkor 20mm f/2.8 ais CPU'd hand held, ISO 200, f/5.6 at 1/160s.
Mixed brickwork called "opus reticulatum" - concrete-faced with diamond-shaped blocks/stones (right) and rectangular fired bricks (left) .







Pompeii's brickwork + terracota pipe by labecoaves, on Flickr

D7000 + Nikkor 20mm f/2.8 ais CPU'd hand held, ISO 400, f/5.6 at 1/640s.
Terracota pipe with "opus incertum" at left with some remnants of stucco and "opus latericium" at the right.







Pompeii's brickwork detail by labecoaves, on Flickr

D7000 + Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 K ai'd & CPU'd hand held, ISO 200, f/4 at 1/1000s.
Closer view of a mixed brickwork, at left "opus incertum", at the right "opus vittatum mixtum" .

Wonderful series, Dean!
Can't imagine a nicer test-subject. Excellent photography and conversions - the shot above is my personal favorite.

Jose, I like your play with the mixed textures here. I rarely watch slide-shows, but when your sets from Pompeii and the Herculaneum are done I will look at your pictures as a slide-show over at flickr (looking at single images might be not the best way to get a feel for your journey).

Frankly, I'm amazed that so much of the country is still struggling with winter weather. I recall the old adage from my time in Minnesota, "If March comes in like a lion it goes out like a lamb. If it comes in like a lamb it goes out like lion." I've been seeing nothing but lions here...

Sorry to do this to you but you know who I am and how I like to shoot. The fact the Nikki is here will surely inspire me to head out to places not ordinarily on my agenda, but it won't stop
...Show more

Curtis, lovely spring-shots! It took me not even a half second to identify this shot as taken with Nikki (stopped down a wee bit, right? :-)
Winter and spring are still fighting each other here - it's pretty cold with a lot of snow around, but sunny most of the day. Perfectly fine for me :-)

Rafael, thanks for sharing your experience with the 400/3.5 in combination with the TC's. The eagle-portrait is fantastic!

Peter, love the Coffee-image!

Jeff, the Curly Cactus is amazing.

Peter, your "Rain on the deck" looks like pure silver - beautiful B&W!

Kevin, I like the detail of your old movie-camera a lot. The Hot-Rod posted a few pages back is absolutely great!

Ray from Ohio - the last shot from your basketball-series is great.

Laura, congrats to your 300/2.8!

Ronny, amazing self-portrait in the eye of Nitro! I have a selfie in the eye of a rooster somewhere ;-)

Chuong, love the moon over the house. Reminds me a bit about old movies - Hitchcock&Co :-)

Ray, great work with the tubed 105/2.5! The butterfly is amazing.


Sorry, I've missed some great posts.

I know and I will. Looking for a nice 85 f/2!
Thanks
20 3.5 and D700



With a collection like that you have no excuse not to be posting more! But be careful, showing everyone your lineup like this only invites some members to helpfully suggest where some gaps could be filled.

(cough - 85mm - cough)

BTW, I didn't have a chance to comment at the time, but a nice pic of your 'pup' and welcome.

I had to show a little love to the 180mm 2.8 AI It's the only prime I hadn't tried on my D600. To be honest I never really liked this lens on my D7000, so I didn't hold out a lot of hope. I had considered selling the lens. It took a while shooting to get used to the lens and was a little hard to hold steady. Not sure I want to sell it now

John, the wild stream (please excuse my English) is very nicely captured! Love the light.

Ray, absolutely beautiful colors on the heron (egret?)! Is your lens the ED-variant?

Some recent images taken with various MF-Nikkor's:


driving snow in my hometown - 300/4.5 IF-ED at f/16, shot at ISO1000 and a 1/250sec from a monopod
we have a really widespread streetcar-network over here


"Earth hour" last saturday - shot at 08:28:47 p.m. with a PC 28/3.5 (shifted about 8mm up)
the framing could have been better (a bit more shift upwards), flare and ghosting are not so well controlled


...and the same scenery shot at 08:30:31 p.m.

Here we have the supposed Arch of Caligula framing via di Mercurio and the Vesuvius:

The (supposed) Arch of Caligula with Vesuvius at the background by labecoaves, on Flickr

D7000 + Nikkor 20mm f/2.8 ais CPU'd hand held, ISO 320, f/8 at 1/800s, ~10% cropped.
This is a vie of Via di Mercurio leading to Mercurio tower. The arch is attributed controversially to Caligula, since during escavations a statue or bust with a similar face of this infamous emperor was found closeby.


Very nice Jose. You are making me want to visit this beautiful place.

I've been watching everyone's nice outdoor pics for the last few weeks hoping for some sign of spring here in Iowa. Yesterday and today the sun was out and it's in the 40's!!! I got a couple flowers of spring with my 105 2.5 and PN-11. I find hand holding isn't as easy, in spite of the many examples I've seen here, but still fun.

Nice color in these Jim. Welcome to the thread!

Here are a couple images from a quick getaway with my wife in Estes Park. No kids!! Shot with a newly acquired 85 1.4. Thoroughly enjoying all of the spectacular images being posted! A couple new additions arrived via the postman today, a 50/1.2 (thanks Chuong!) and a 28/2. It's been confirmed, definitely have a case of NMFAS



Nice depth of field control on these Craig.

Thank you Georg. My copy is the the AI version which does not have ED glass.
I've missed seeing you recently maybe you have been on when I wasn't
Love the snow shot and the building with the lights is phenomenal.

New ships for the Navy - a couple of Corvettes will replace the famous/infamous "Schnellboote" ("S-boats").


20/3.5 Ais and a Cokin graduated ND


I hate shooting a ship from the pier :-( the 20/3.5 was used here too


taken from the stern of another Corvette - the PC 85/2.8D was a bit too long for this
- it's time to save big bucks for a PC-E 45/2.8 ;-)
lens wide open, tilt was about 4 or 5 degrees
