Ray - you have the sunsets down pat - another pair of beauts. The eagle shots are very impressive too

Jeff - that GT40 was actually a winner at Le Mans. The design originated when Henry Ford ll was so frustrated at being messed about in trying to acquire Ferrari that he set out to kick their butts on the racetrack which they did with the GT40.

Jorge - nice image - I also like the B&W

Chuong - very nice different take on the standard dandelion.

Kevin - get well soon. Love the tulips.

Georg - thanks for the comment. I'd like the cars to be in a very appropriate location - my garage . The motorbikes look like a fairly obvious East German attempt to duplicate the old BMW's - nice shots too under tough conditions.

Samy - thanks

Scott - you're making me look forward to PA in late August. Our deciduous trees have lolst their leaves now.

Ray - thanks. I think it's the same model.

If anyone is interested in looking at these old cars this website has lots of images and stories about the cars http://www.fmm.co.za

Thread's languishing way down the page again!! Let's add one more, this is another one in Baltimore with the 28 3.5PC, wider frame than the previous image of the same scene.

Scott, it must be good to finally have greenery and sunshine upstate. Summers in that whole region are scenic, from my couple trips to the Finger Lakes and the Adirondacks.

I'm pretty sure this one has not been posted before. Didn't have time to shoot since earlier this week, but I have been putting stuff from April into galleries. I started with the SAC museum gallery and this is one of the images that made the cut - 105mm f2.5 on D600 and tripod and EXIF viewer tells me Auto exposure, Aperture-priority AE, 1/40 sec, f/11, ISO 100, Compensation: -5/3. This is not HDR like many of the others I did there.

Peter (Madison), very nice images again with your new 55. I have never looked closely at a bokeh ring, maybe someone here can verify if dust spots in a lens can cause that. A lot of these older lenses are advertized as having dust inside.
.


I did some bokeh research and found this page with everything you would ever want to know about the blurry circles - seems like dust is what causes the spots inside the rings and much of that dust may be on the outside of the lens (his figure 10 shows a before and after lens cleaning, leaving much less dust on the rings). I really don't want to get into a complete lens disassembly to get rid of those small specs that only show in a few images.

thanks Peter, Ray, Jeff, Georg, Samy, Scott, Ronny for nice comments!

Georg : your picture from art exhibition is just fine art! Well done!
Ray; I enjoyed the eagles pictures : the only one eagle I've ever seen is an USAF F15
Peter, nice little red cars
Scott, not easy to get nice colors in this kind of image , well done!
Samy, I didn't imagine Baltimore could be like this

Philippe, your fine picture from the cathedral (love his expression!) made me remember a shot taken at the christmas fair 2011:

50/1.2 Ais wide open and mis-focused quite a bit. That's a Ferris wheel in the background ;-)

Philippe, Peter from Knysna, Ronny, Ray, Scott, David and Samy - thanks a bunch for your kind words on the art-exhibition and/or the vintage bikes!
David, thank you for the clarification, I will give "Point Omega" a try (in German translation ;-).

Scott, I always like the light in your photographs. The "Spring Sunrise" is a fine example of your careful work with the sun as "depth-shaping-device" (sorry for the awkward English).

Samy, I liked the closer shot of this corner too - both images share a very fresh looking atmosphere. The rather light processing/"rich exposure" works great here.

Peter from Madison - very cool framing on #17964! And thanks for sharing the link to the "Bokeh"-explanation.

Jose, thanks for the link to the auction. Firing up the NMFAS is always a very welcome action. Right now I have my eyes on a 25-50/4 (wish me luck, the auctions will end tomorrow ;-).

Kevin, Ray, Curtis and Peter - thanks for your comments!

I'm stereoblind, that's why I try to create multi-dimensional-looking pictures most of the time.
A shallow DoF delivered by my beloved fast Nikkors is one way to achieve this effect, the use of tilt-lenses another.
Of course a special lighting or tricks like shooting into a mirror will work without "special" lenses.

Here's the last one for today, taken with the Ai 35/1.4 wide open:

Wow Georg, what a great photo! You've really captured a nice multi-dimensional look in this one.

Your comments about not having stereo vision are very interesting to me since I've had a similar issue over the past couple of years with one eye becoming quite dominant due to retinal issues in the other. If you don't mind, I think I'll "borrow" a few of your approaches to getting more depth in my images.

Ray, love the eagles. Has that 800mm sold yet?

Jorge, b&w for me.

Chuong, love "morning dew" and your choice of bokeh on that one.

Kevin, great tulips and bridge. Hope you're feeling better.

Peter, thanks for the background on that GT40. I've seen some of the newer replicas in person, but it would be a real treat to see a Le Mans winner in person.

Scott, "Spring Sunrise" is a very peaceful shot.

Philippe, I really like the composition of your cathedral shot.

Samy, great framing on your streetscape.

Georg, love the "bokeh wheel" in your Christmas shot.

Peter, the "matte" look of the tail shot is very nice.

Some scenes from Ellicott City, a suburb just south of Baltimore.

A historic log cabin, it belonged to one of the first settlers in the area. Built in 18th century and was reconstructed in the 20th.

I wasn't the only one trying to get some picture taking done before the rain.
Taken with 5.8cm 1.4S







Scene on Main Street with 35 f2 OC.

A building next to the log cabin with the 35 f2 OC. Trying my best to imitate Philippe






And another b&w scene at Main Street, also with the 35 f2 OC.

Not much time to comment, but appreciative of the beautiful postings, Georg- fantastic art compositions; Samy love seeing the 5.8CM in use.

You know me every Friday, predictable car shots, predictable lens,55 1.2:
