Thanks for the comments on my recently posted pictures!

Jose, the pictured street is just a curved bridge.

Here's an image shot today, at first I had a gritty B&W-conversion in mind, but changed my view:

The 1.4 is definitely the clear winner. But it's interesting to note that the bokeh improves with the 85 f2 at 2.8. Thanks Jose.


I've got one to loan you Leighton... I might even be convinced to sell it since I have other options at that focal length.

Peter and Georg are entertaining us with their distinctive creativity. I really enjoy 8mm fisheye shots, though I think I'm be more inclined to take your approach Peter rather than spending two thousand dollars on that lens. It is simply too specialized for my taste. And Georg, I've always been a fan of Anton's work with the 45 PC-E, largely because of the amazing way it creates bokeh. You're little experiment catches the flavor of that work. I like a great deal. I assume the stitching was vertical since the images were in landscape format. Very intriguing...

After all the talk about 85mm lenses I had to mount Nikki's older sibling when I took an afternoon constitutional. I have a cold, a runny nose and sinus headache. About all I could do was put one foot in front of the other. Having my camera along made it doable.

Roses...




I have a hood on the lens which doubtless helps manage the bright light. The lens is a pleasure to hold and use. I doubt I'd pay for an H.C. since this lens works so well but maybe the universe will bring one my way and I'll take the plunge.

Curtis you have unique aesthetic and it shows in your flower shots. Move to Tahoe and buy a corvette and a chris craft. + on the car shots. Also any writer would be proud of a portrait by you on their book cover, or a band on their album

Ben, what a great city your live in, your photos are a constant reminder of where civilization has migrated.

Philippe, your photos of Provence are a reminder of where civilization originated, in beautiful sorroundings.

Mihai, hope your surgery is a total success.

Jose, impressive panorama with the 50 H. Like the 85K best.

Ronny, bee in flight and perfectly focused. Horse in flight and perfectly focused.

Georg, incredible work on the engine room panos! love the sports chairs. Is the wicker grown church where Curtis is moving into? Do buy a 25-50mm

Dean, the Macau cemetery is haunting in the memory of portuguese colonial past, do they still speak the language?

Peter, your shots have altitude! and your lenses are wet! and then you left the planet.

Philip, me likes the colorful flare in aunt and auntie's and the 105 look

John, nice home and neighborhood

Samy, I have the 28 pc, you master it, like how you make the tops just a bit wider than straight

Leighton, we want more, I would love to see your unique winter perspective extended to other seasons, those shots were far out

Scott, very mossy greens

Alan, beautiful sleeping moment with the 105 in BW, very subtle light

Kevin, happy shipwreck


Thanks for kind comments, I am a poor photog but enjoy it immensely, specially in good company like here

That's funny Rafael... when I was running around with a group guys driving Corvettes, we bought an Owens cabin cruiser on a large lake west of Minneapolis. We had a few summers of rather serious partying on the boat. Two of those friends moved on to much larger Chris Craft cruisers in later years, one of them moving to Fort Lauderdale so he could be on the water all year round. But alas, partying hard is no longer on the agenda for me... I'll just keep driving my Acura and taking photos of flowers...

The 85mm1.8 K really is good but the 1.4 is king of the 85's
Thank you Jose and leighton. I tried my photo in B&W but my skills just are not up to the ones posted here in this forum. Maybe you can send me your recipe Leighton

http://raysteele.zenfolio.com/img/s9/v94/p1598188128-5.jpg


This works Ray. I really have no recipe, just put the raw file in LR and have a go at it. But I know sitting in front of the computer processing images isn't for everyone. However, I enjoy this as much (if not more) as the process of taken the image. Seeing what can be done with those beautiful D600 raw files always amaze me.

+1 I agree, they're showing us some amazing work.

George - There was a shot taken at this years Kentucky Derby with a shift lens that was simply wonderful. I believe it's the second image in this link. http://www.nbcnews.com/id/51831440/displaymode/1247?beginSlide=1

I really appreciate the offer, but I'm one of those guys who hates to borrow things with the fear of breaking them. Plus, I'm in love with the 1.4's bokeh!

Ben, ^love them all ;-)

Fantastic work, I could be wrong, but my Nikkor-H 85/1.8 seems to deliver less contrasty nightscapes.
I hope you don't wanna let Nikki go (I don't understand the "last of nikki pics"-sentence).

Curtis, I really like the last image of your flower-set. A bit of foreground-blur adds a lot of depth to a scene - you did a wonderful job!

Curtis, Leighton and Rafael - thanks for your comments!

Curtis, the PC 85/2.8D is (together with the incredible 16/3.5) my favorite MF-Nikkor. I still have to explore it's full potential, one of the reasons why I try to use it as much as possible.
I've shot some more "work-stuff" with it today, will post a picture or two this evening.
A PC-E 45/2.8 would see even more use - 85mm is a tad long for some shots.

edit: Leighton, thanks for sharing the link - yes, the "derby hats overview shot" looks like taken with a 24mm-tilt-lens.

Did you see the one with the horses rounding the turn and shot real low?

Been lurking around and playing with a new to me 70-300vr I had forgotten how nice VR is
I am amazed at the quality of work lately. Everyone seems inspired by others to try something new

First one is the 28-50's macro mode It works rather well letting you focus closer at 50mm
