Scott, did I miss the Williamsburg images? Really liked what Jose reposted.


Hi Samy. As part of our tour through Virginia, besides seeing Leighton, we did stop at Williamsburg. Great place with all kinds of photo opportunities. It was hot and humid though.

Nice pictures of the turtle and the day lilly.

Everyone is knocking it out of the park with beautiful flower images!!! Great diversity, use of lenses, tubes, compositions, and the like. Great work!

I will not be posting my humble flower attempts.

Great to see new faces on the thread. Welcome aboard.

Nice series Leighton. You were not sporting boots like that the day we visited.


Thanks Scott, you're right, not my boots, mine don't look this good.

That 180mm looks like its doing a magnificent job. I really like the contrast and color in your pictures too. They are well composed and really allow the lens to shine.

Thanks Buddy, the 180mm is one of the "desert island lens". I believe everyone should have it in their bag. Sometime last year, or perhaps later, I think (but I may be wrong) John (jhinkey) did a comparison between the AF version and the manual version. He ended up keeping the manual version. It's super sharp and contrasty wide open, where I like to use it most of the time.

Well then for full disclosure it wasn't the museum, it was I. I used to have a zoology background, and here now I have to dig up wikipedia to keep myself straight on species

Delightful flower bunch at the market Leighton!

A couple with the 35 1.4N, both at f/4.

Many great posts and pictures on the last pages! Will come back tomorrow for some comments.
Here are just three shots taken this weekend:


PC 28/3.5 at f/11 - this lens drives me crazy: if I correct for straight lines at the borders, the lines at the central part of the image are warped


blossom with a "crown of thorns" - D7000, 28/2 Ai at f/5.6, PK-11A


strange looking flower-bud - D7000, Ai 28/2 wide open, PK-11A

We need to shut down this thread because we are driving prices too high!

Keh is selling this 16mm 3.5 with scratched in the glass and fungus for $438!

To share a little lightness, my 9 year old grandson was spending the day with me, he asked me what I was doing and I say looking for lenses in E-Bay, he says to me: "Do something else, you have enough lenses already"

Even extension tubes are out of control!

I went looking for the smaller extension tubes - with photos such as Georg's 28mm + PK-11 flower above in this page I just can't help it . And that darn PK-11 is pretty expensive for 8mm of extension!

Shot in some harsh (mid-day) light today so tried to make the best of it. Let me know what you think. All taken with the 50 1.4 SC.

You continually impress me with your camera work Bert. You have a modest kit but over and over again give us stunning images. You got the mojo...
