Luc, welcome! I like your first posts a lot, please keep your fine pictures coming (some heavy metal from the Netherlands is very welcome to counterbalance the flower-shots ;-).
Leighton, great framing of the first shot and smart use of the 24/2.8 wide open and up close on #2.
I would try to refine shot #1 by placing a clearly recognizable products of the supplier more prominently in the foreground (it shouldn't look massive, but it should catch the viewers/jury-members eyes).
On #2 I would shoot a bit more from the left side (the greenhouse almost filling the frame), with Barbara cranking the winder from the right side (her left hand at the grip). The shallow DoF works great.
On both shots I would keep your wife's face visible (if she agrees).
Best of luck and please take the words above not as a gospel ;-)
Thanks for your comment on the garden-shots!
Chris, I like your framing on the snail-house-shot!
Ronny, shot #1 is wonderful taken and processed too!
Peter from Madison, love the "heavy-metal-set".
David, nice to hear/read from you again! I'd love to see some of your LF-work, it would be great if you could share a link to it if possible.
As much as I enjoy my growing MF-Nikkor-kit and the digital stuff I really miss working in a real wet darkroom. Right now I can only develop films and this under fun-killing conditions :-(
Curtis, yeah, a car-trunk will hold a good bit of photo-stuff. My go-to-kit changes every-day, depending on the intended use. But at least one MF-Nikkor is on-board every time.
Ben, thank you! The 45 PC-E is a great lens and a lot of fun to use, but in your hometown with so many sky-scapres the 24 PC-E is probably the better choice. That new Zeiss must be a killer-optic, I hope it will work well for you (this goes for the 135 Apo and the 55 as well).
