Nice images everyone.

Dean, the cemetery carvings are very nice .

Philippe, I am really enjoying your marine series. Nice looking boats and colors.

Leighton, those strawberries look mouthwatering. Too bad about the internet service. Is it related to the rain you had?

Jose, very nice image with the 800 of the Great Kiskadee.

Chuong, the image of the bird with the 300 2.8 has a very nice detail and background.

Ronny, I like the horse portrait.

Rafael, very nice images of the bike race.

great shots from the bike race - without Monty, we need more bike shots!



We need to convince Philippe to take a few snaps when the Tour De France goes through his neck of the woods this year.

Visited Letchworth State Park this weekend. We just had some heavy rain the day before making for some nice water flow.

Curtis, more nice pictures from the car meeting. And a great story about the 1950 Mercury. I remember the picture from your Acura - indeed a classy designed car.

Ronny, as usual beautiful work with the 135/2 and 180/2.8! I've shot some horses today too, but used an AF-lens to keep up with the action. Your focusing skills are excellent.

Samy, nice to see another frequent user of the 28/3.5 PC! I like your work with it a lot - especially the very first shot and the last image from the pump station (it looks like a chapel, today's pump-stations will probably look like a concrete/tin-clump).

"Ufdlim" - the 105/1.8 Ais is a very nice handling lens and a good performer. Right now I have 10 lenses with Nikon mount from 85-105mm and the 105/1.8 is (together with the 85/1.4 AF-D) my first pick as a portrait-lens. Philip and Curtis posted already some very nice examples and useful hints - just to add another point: the built-in lens hood is a bit short and flare can be a problem under certain light.

Philippe, love your set from the port! The kayak-shot is excellent.

Leighton, sorry to hear about your internet. Nice work at the farmers market!

Rafael, wow, the 35-200 performs really nice in your hands!

Ben, the "Centrepoint-Tower" is really cool captured! Very well seen.

Scott, I like your set from the State Park a lot, especially the first two shots. The framing of the window suits my taste just fine ;-)
And the 28mm-waterfall-image is beautifully framed too. The flow of the water works great (looks like 1/4 sec shutter-speed or so).



Thanks for the comments on the stools (relicts from a communist past) and the engine-room!

Found an old shot taken with the 35/2 OC:


D700 at ISO200, 35/2 OC at f/8, 13sec - I like the lines/curves somehow.

Thank you fpr the comments Georg. I am not sure why the exif for that image shows 1/4 second. It was a much longer exposure, I would say around 1.5 seconds. I had a ND filter on to slow the shutter speed.

I like your time exposure. Looks like a racetrack.

Scott, thanks - the 1/4sec was just a (wrong) guess. I was curious about the shutter-speed and looked into the exif, but the shutter-speed was not displayed ;-)

Two images taken today with the 105/1.8 Ais - subject is a somehow "grown church", built out of willow wickers/rods. The tent/tarp was not part of the initial blueprint.
The surrounding (kiosk, lamp-posts) makes a clean shot difficult to say the least.




8 vertical shots with the 105/1.8 stitched

I just have my monthly color-crisis - some colors, especially the fresh green-tones and some red-tones seem to be out of whack.

Although I often toy with the idea of selling all my Nikon's and going fully film, my wife usually talks reason back into my head.

Good thing she does, as the shot below from the D700+105/2.5 wouldn't be nearly as quick & easy on a Leica or Pentax 67 as it was with MF Nikkors:

Lots of good shooting going on too. Even with my heavy focus of shooting film big and small, I always like to come back to this thread and see what everyone is doing.

Just before bed, nothing special; this is one of the first experiments with the scalloped 50/2 HC + extension tube. The fruit is just ~1 cm in diameter. The 6 blades are evident in the bokeh at the left.

Went back for the end of the race. Took the 25-50mm, it is one class above the 35-200 on the D800. This is totally impressive, these cyclists just ended a 100 mile race up and down an 8000 foot mountain, the two winners were only 20 seconds ahead of the pack and everybody else was in the same pack within 40 seconds of each other, this was an international world class race but I expected more separation that a single minute after 6 hours of grueling racing, my hat off.

The distance was now larger on the incoming road and the crowd was much bigger, I was humbled by my lack of ability to take a really good photo of the race end, has nothing to do with the equipment, or focusing, but with technique I am not familiar with.

Without further ado.

So we finally ended up at the Hacienda de Vega to celebrate mothers day and my daughter's birthday. Nice local restaurant 25-50mm D800. I do not like what I get from the D800 on harsh sunlight, the camera has the dynamic range to tackle it, but I do not like the look, wrong color balance and odd contrast, will figure it out. Must be my monthly color crisis.

Great shot Jose. You're close work is first rate with this an other lenses. Amazing how useful tubes can be with every lens in our kits. Here the 50 f/2 H.C. really shines. Nicely done.

Wonderful shot of your boy Alan. And send along our thanks to Nikki for her guidance regarding your kit. We want you to be able to stop by from time to time and catch us up with your life in Texas. With a second child on its way, you're no doubt quite busy. Glad you stopped by.

I'd like to post a few more photos from the car show yesterday, but these are of entertainers who performed. The harsh light made conversion with Silver Efex Pro 2 a sensible solution. These were all shot with the 105 f/2.5 P AI'd.

And a few more...





She knew the lyrics to most of the songs so I think she's a serious fan of this band. They were very good, so I can't criticize her taste...
