I hate to take pictures during classical concerts - my DSLR's are way too loud for most concerts and the completely silent Nikon V1 (in electronic shutter mode) is challenged at higher ISO-settings.


great catch, Georg!

This one is from yesterday evening, the sun was very deep already and I didn't correct the low contrast caused by some flare.

Oh come on Georg...I bet you'd be good working in the garden. Come on over and we'll see.

That'll work as well. Curtis has already agreed to come sit on the porch and drink some beers. The more the merrier!

This is like saying that Curtis will sit on the porch and shoot with Af lenses.

To be realist Curtis will drink a bottle of fine wine or an aged exclusive kind of brandy...

Leighton, I'd love to jump over the big pond for a visit of your fine country, but that's just not possible in the near future.
Maybe Curtis can help you out on the beer-front (Mihai, if memory serves there was a MF-Nikkor-meeting in Florida some time ago, beer was involved, Curtis too ;-).

Tried an old and fairly scratched Nikkor-S Auto 50/1.4 on a D7000:

D7k, Ai'd Nikkor-S Auto 50/1.4 at f/2.8, Nikon PK-11A and a simple Nikon #1 close-up-lens
Played a bit with film-presets in NIK ColorEfex, so far I like the faked "Kodak 160NC look"...

I have no doubt that he's a connoisseur... (isn't this a French word?... ) But he merely takes pictures with wine and brandy... But with a roasted lamb at your porch he may take a 'meter' of free good beer

BTW Georg... in Florida Curtis met with Reagan and Ray and he had to follow the local culture... "When in Florida do like Reagan" is Curtis' philosophy When at home, Lapharoig, Bourgogne and so on

Chris, welcome to the thread. This is a very nice image to introduce yourself, I love what you did in the conversion. Don't hesitate jumping into the fray as we're all lovers of these wonderful lenses. You probably have already figured out that some of us like to talk as well as shoot.

really like how the color seems to be bleeding into the table cloth - maximum saturation. The lens definitely does get you vivid colors, and the softbox lighting doesn't hurt

Georg, just a sunburst test is more than just a test, well done with the PP. The 28f2 bokeh is wild, I enjoy looking at it occasionally but definitely not something I would want in my shots often.

Good luck on the finals Laura. I find a little goofing off actually helps the brain.

Scott, the farmhouse composition is odd to me. I would have included more of the tree, but even then the space is a little too large for my taste between the house and the tree.

Kevin, I would suggest something wider than the 35mm (I actually like at least 24) in your remaining kit, but then again you know your preferences. Since you don't seem to mind (actually enjoy) older lenses, non-ai 24's show up fairly inexpensively.

Will actually get to join (modestly) in the flower picture parade from some stuff this morning, have to process when I get home tonight.

Thanks guys. Yes the eye surgery went well and I'm looking forward to having the exercise restrictions lifted so I can get back to some photo hiking.

Speaking of serious hikes, Peter those are great shots from the Sierra.

Laura, very cool plane shots.

Mark, I really like your "look down" shot with the 24mm.

Ray, beautiful nature shots.

Scott, love the lighting and composition of the farm house photo.

Kevin, really like the sax and flower shots.

Rafael, it had to to be "art." It was at an art museum. Good idea for the surfboard sculpture. My son has broken so many, I can make my own.

Chris, welcome! Very nice b&w.

Georg, wonderful yellow bokeh and I really like this one.

Ray, I was really curious about the possibility to get sunstars/sunbursts with longer lenses. So far it was easily possible to create sunbursts with lenses up to 35mm (with the sun partially hidden behind something).
With the full sun in the frame superwides like the famous 20/3.5 or the fisheyes work best (at smaller apertures, of course).
This evening I've tried the 180/2.8ED. To my surprise it was easy as well, with the same cheap trick: the sun should be partially hidden behind branches, trees or something else.
Unfortunately this doesn't work at short ranges, so I've tried to create

This is stunning!

Glad to hear that - does that mean "Foggy" is a thing of the past?

Loved both versions, but IMHO the grain is more pleasant in the B&W version.
