Ray, I like your kind of fun!

Here's another sunburst (my kind of fun lately ;-), this time with the 24/2 Ai:


24/2 Ai stopped down to f/16, I should really clean my D3s' sensor :-(

Welcome back Philippe, looks like coastal California in the morning. I have spent a little time there and it is a beautiful area with great weather. Once I asked for a local seafood specialty at Aix en Provence, not being able to select them myself in french, and they brought me sea urchins which I did not know were edible, a week after I had been unknowingly stepping on them in Baja while surfing as my feet were numb with cold. Took me all day to get the spines out, it took less to eat them. Still prefer the San

Man urchins in one of the finest things I've ever eaten!
But next time you are in Provence taste a famous "bouillabaisse" from Marseille.

Peter O, congrats on the 5cm 2 H and the S, I have both and love them, did not need to ai cut the S as it easily slides under the ai tab in my cameras, the S fully open has great character, the H a more modern rendering. Recommend you check the magnetic field around the narcisus.



Rafael - You're right about the aperture ring but I started to work on it as I didn't want to risk damage. The narcissi are all upside down even after 3 years since we got the bulbs!!

Philippe, love the airy look of #2 and the sun (= spring or summer) breaking through the dark trees. The village looks like a beautiful place to spend a week (or more) there.

James, I really like the "Tulip Tree Bud". It looks really familiar - like ornaments (or vice versa). How would you rate the 200/4 Micro compared to Nikon's 180/2.8's and the "normal" 200/4?

Merci, Philippe! I should have been more careful in terms of framing/composition, but this was just a quick snap between my three 2 p.m.-jobs today ;-)

Phillippe - we were in Provence in 2001 for a magical hoilday. Sun every day and we drove and drove and drove ... loved every minute.

re sunbursts - I finally managed to get one with the 20mm f3.5 AI as well, and it took a while to remove all the D600 sensor grit from this one. Again, somewhere around 11,300 feet on Mt. Whitney at sunset. f/22 1/250s, iso 100







I was in Provence in 1980 - those pictures are a bit faded by now

closeup of what is supposed to be some sort of sea weed salad from Trader Joe's - actually quite yummie. Again, 20mm f3.5 AIS on D600 f/8 1/250s iso 100, polarizer to help those colors pop

Peter, envy kicks in heavily on my side ;-) Beautiful beach, nicely captured! We had 9°C here today, minus the chill-factor.
A dumb question: do people swim there or is it too risky because of the "Great white" and other sharks?

Two images from yesterday, the subject is a former Belgian "Congo-Boat".
Right now it's future is doubtful, it could be scrapped or tugged/towed as a swimming museum to Antwerp.


taken with a PC 85/2.8D wide open - it's brother, the PC-E 45/2.8 is on top of my wish-list


Fisheye-Nikkor 16/3.5 Ai, I love this lens

Georg, yes I had to, at 100% correction on NX2, this is something that I did not need to do using the TC16a with the 50-300mm or the 400mm 3.5, but it must be that those are ED while my 180mm is not.


Thank you, Rafael! Lately I'm a bit paranoid about longitudinal CA's. Even the 180/2.8 ED is not completely free of loCA's. My only lenses with not even traces of loCA's are the fat and heavy AF-S 200/2 and the Apo-Telyt-R 180/3.4. The Leica-lens is awesome, but I don't like it's handling (the 180/2.8ED-Nikkor is much better in this discipline). I have to try the TC-16A, have seen so many great examples here from you, Jose and Samy.

Lots and lots of fine images lately. You guys are awesome!
Here's one from harvesting on Friday. 5 gallons of lettuce being spun dry.

thank you for the kind comments everyone.

Welcome back Phillippe.

First you force me to buy the 24mm PCE (and the zeiss 85 P) and then you ask me why am I using it and not using nikki??

Actually I take nikki with me every day. I'm trying but all the pics are crap. For a while I thought it might be the camera - that it didn't match well with the D800E - so I tried using her with the D200. But, yeah, now I know, it's not the camera.

Peter - nice composition on the beach - the woman on the far left is a great touch.
