Had some time and extra coffee to burn this morning, so I decided to go back 7 days and pick my top 10 images of the week. 18 pages to go through, and easily 20 or more images that would qualify.

Here my final top 10 - time to go back and hand out some like button clicks

Ray's Sunrise over River - unless I am on some hiking trip, I'd never get out of bed this early for a photo, but the light this early is magical

Next is Chin's pooch shot - still wondering if that is dog hair or a wig around the nose

Georg's three-handed pianist works really well in black and white. My favorite bw shot of the week

Kevin's blue flower on the table cloth - just dripping with color

Laura's fishy YF-23 shot has me yet again wonder if I should keep looking for one of these 16mm lenses

Chuong's 300mm w/PK13 flower is my favorite macro of the week - reminds me to get outside with my tubes this weekend

Mark's graffiti shot with the 35-70mm - colorful and almost feels like a poor man's f/1.2 50mm shot

Philippe's La Maison Café image is a great play on shadow and light

Jeff's foggy photographer at the pier - great use of a medium ND filter. Usually those shots are 100x ND stuff and that look gets old real fast

Rafael's Friday night Buick - just great light and color on a cool old car

James' serene morning light shot from the drive to the auto repair place - what a place to have cars repaired.

What I like most about this thread is the variety of great work that shows up, all connected only by the type of lenses in use.

Lotsa fantastic work on the last few pages, will come back later to comment.

Some shots from today - a pretty large cruise ship was in my hometown and I had the opportunity to snap some pictures for a local paper.
Here are some images that won't make it into the gazette for various reasons ;-)


As usual, the guys from the television were showing up in an unsuitable fashion ;-) 35/1.4 Ai wide open


The bars on board were equipped nicely, even with handgrips for drunken sailors
35/1.4 Ai wide open

oops, focus inappropriate for certain MF-Nikkor-users here ;-)


Proper focus now - 35/1.4 Ai at f/2


The 16/3.5Ai got some use too, this one was hand-held (D700, ISO3200, 1/8sec, f/11)

Disclaimer: the shots, captions and comments above are not too seriously meant.

Terrific light and bokeh in the second one (http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/929565/2836#11531729) Leighton, I like it a lot.

Samy, beautiful spread of Azaleas.

Philip, Margot is one cute little girl!

John, very cool setup. The larger screen for LV sounds very attractive.

Kevin, love the balloons and the portrait of the model. She can pose for four hours without texting or checking email? Amazing!

Georg, the elements of the double portrait are very eye catching. I really like it.

Rafael, "Lone Fishing" is great, especially the b&w version.

James, your subtle landscape is beautiful.

Leighton, a few of your shots dropped coming over from Flickr, but "Basil" made it and it's outstanding.

Thanks Peter. Geat work from the CA/NV border.

Ben, great set! "Sunday Darlinghurst" is a classic.

Peter, the cars are terrific. If I could get that Rolls Woody over here the surfers would go crazy for it!

I need to remember the drunken sailor out-of-focus style - then I may have some more images to post

Slowly reaching the end of focused images from my recent trip. Here' Sevier Lake (dry for the most part) west of Delta, Utah, just before sunset. This is taken from hwy 50/US6 - it runs for 20 miles without turn as it heads east of the lake. I saw no cars for half an hour on that road

300mm f4.5 EDIF @f5.6 1/500s ISO400, handheld

Roberto - great tree . (BTW just looking at yor profile you seem to have nearly as many lenses as Curtis, Jose and Rafael put together!!! )



I really don't think so, I just put a single lens for every row and so they seem more!

I know that a Nikon lenses fan should never say "I have enough", but I think I have almost completed my collection.
I'm tempted by a lens that I think never showed up on this forum, stay tuned

Great image!

Inspired, I grabbed a bottle out of the fridge and held it in front of the fire! Winter's closing in!

Handheld - camera and bottle!!

Georg, top compo on the bike shot. Nice set too from the cruise ship although I do not like the bokeh of the 35/1.4 (not to mention the cruise ships.... )
Kevin, Beautiful portrait of your daughter
Ben, #1 my fav
Peter, I enjoyed the old cars set (especially the modern Aston -))
Leighton, first one is nice

An early image from the 105 2.5P. About a 1964 production as per the serial #. Its in excellent shape, the focus ring, the aperture stops just glide and click really smooth, no other way to describe it.

Trying to get an idea of the character wide open, 1/1600 sec, only post processing done was a quick sharpen and reducing to fit on the browser page.

Two days to catch up on here. Great images posted by everyone. Just to mention a few:

Ben, nice Philippesque series. Don't worry, you have a great style of your own.

Ronny, the isolated flower with the 135 f2 and tubes is wonderful.

Philippe, nice images from Lourmarin. They look very Benesque.

Peter, nice images from the CA/NV border.

Kevin I like the ballon image very much.

Georg, nice perspective on the biker/church image. I agree that to see more of the churh would be nice.

Leighton, wonderful images from the market.

Peter, nice old cars.

Been too busy with work to stay up to date, did see the comments about the 8mm, this lens is actually not heavy at all, I love owning it and it takes very sharp photos on the D800 but it is hard to use creatively, once in a while I get a really nice shot. Its real use are three shot 360 degree panoramas, which I don't care for

But forget about the 8mm, I am now a member of the most exclusive lens clique ever, a proud owner of a 200 mm 1:4 QC ai converted. Only Jose and Curtis
...Show more

Lovely lens porn Rafael. What a monster that 80-200 f/2.8!!.
Some days ago I saw one in near pristine condition for only USD 890.00 at ebay!
What are your comments about this huge zoom?

I just had to test this lens some more, this is a TEST, Pleeasseee do not compare to anything Jose or Curtis do with the 200mm QC, especially Curtis' flowers.

I was fixing sprinklers, it got to be 92 here as well, it is down to 86Deg already. Had to fix them to keep plants alive.

Rafael you are too humble, these just "test" images are gorgeous.
I suppose the bad reputation of this lens is unjustified; perhaps the multicoating of this QC version improved results and/or people don´t like it are speaking of the previous Q version

A couple Macros to wet your whistle... 80-200/4.5 with the PK13

This little guy landed on my camera and just hung out for about 15 minutes. I didn't bother him, he didn't bother me. Eventually flew off into more flowers.
