Some random notes while going through the last pages:
James, your lonesome hazy road is a very fine piece of landscape-photography.
Kevin, I really like your latest sets. Many great pictures, I like especially the glass-blowing close up and the beautiful and "fresh-looking" portrait of your "black belt" (congrats!).
Rafael, many very nice pictures on the last pages! I particularly like the B&W-fisherman. The theatre-shots are interesting, if memory serves I've shot the D200 up to ISO1600 under comparable light-conditions. But I'm happy with my D3s and it's performance at sky-high ISO-settings now ;-)
Leighton, love your work with the 50/1.2! I'm especially drawn to to first set from the market: the basil-shot is beautifully done as is the asparagus.
The "Flying Fox" image would look better if/when shot with the lens opened up a bit more, but that's just my personal opinion.
Ben, fantastique work with Nikki and the 24/3.5 PC-E! Darlinghurst is awesome and the alley too.
Peter from Knysna - wow, love those cars and your captures as well! The De Soto and the Buick are my favs.
I wonder if you did the very first 3-shot panorama of a Ford Model A in the history of photography ;-) I'm just joking, very nice work, pure joy to look at.
Peter from Madison - the landscape http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/929565/2836#11531878 taken with the 300/4.5 is fantastic, love the composition. The Hoey-style image and the blackbird-shot are great too.
Philippe, beautiful portraits of your daughters! As someone who loves classic ships I've noticed the shape of the ship's stern - it must have been a rather old-fashioned, well proportioned ship. Today's (cruise-) ships are lacking pleasing lines.
Scott, I like all 3 of your farmhouse-studies! If I had to pick a fav it would be the image in portrait-orientation: exceptional light paired with a beautiful composition in a unique fashion.
I just wonder if pictures like this ("hard cut images" for the lack of better terms) would benefit from a border to stabilize the picture. But that's a rather general thought.
Jose, wow, poor man's 110/5.6 delivers! Beautiful mixture of sharpness and dreamy background.
Jeff, the dunes-shot is fantastic! Love the framing, the textures and the B&W-conversion.
The beaches here are getting crowded this time of the year, not the best time to shoot pictures of dunes ("Hey you, with the big camera, did you just take my picture?!"... ;-))
