Some 10 days ago a colleague here at university ask me to take some pictures of epiphytes. He is thinking of a future book on the epiphytes of the São Paulo University campus.
For the first "session" I opted for the light weight 75-150/3.5 E.

Two samples:

D600 + Nikkor 75-150mm f/3.5 E hand held, ISO 800, f/4 at 1/250s; no flash, ~ 20% cropped.

Thanks Curtis and Georg.

Peter, what jaw dropping focus stacking sets! What focusing ring didi you use?.


Not sure what a focusing ring is - other than the lens reversal adapter, I used the old manual Nikon K1 through K5 tube set. all or some (on the 20mm) of them between lens reversal ring (52mm to Nikon F mount, $4.99 ebay) and achieved focus by moving the camera on a focus rail. The focus on the lens seems to be useless when you are reversing it. I left it at infinity.

When reversing the 20mm, I got a lot of spots on the master bug image - either in the lens and it gets revealed because of the reversal, or the sensor is oiled up again (just wet cleaned it for the 4th time in 2000 shots).

Classic shot very much in your style Philippe. I don't comment on all of the photos you post, but you consistently share outstanding work such as this shot. The one of the rose window a few pages back is another stunner. You have a great eye for composition and both your camera work and post processing are first rate. Always a delight to see your work appear on the thread. And it is sweet seeing how you take advantage of the modest four lens kit of MF Nikkors... they all sparkle in your hands... 28, 50, 85, 180...

Oops, I meant "focusing rail"; what make did you use? Mine is a generic not very good with some too loose controls.
Thanks for the details on your setup.

Have a great day!

Thank you everyone for the comments on the spring sunrise.

You all are putting up some fantastic work.

Peter (WI) the SR-71 and flower stacked focus images are very nice.

Philippe, the cathedral image has nice colors and oof background.

Samy, I like the b&w "Philippesque" image of the stone house.

Peter, nice candid images of the people in the streets.

Ronny, wonderful flower close-ups.

Jose, nice 50-135 hood-no hood comparison.

Curtis, I like the dog sniffing flowers.

Georg, what a cute pup in your "on line dog" image.

Leighton, more nice work from the market. I like the tail-gate b&w and the onion tops.

Jeff, nice conversion on the lone tree image.

Two panos from consecutive days last weekend from west and east of Cape Point. There is a massive differnce in sea temperature between the east and west (=/- 10* C) even though they are only about 15 miles apart. This is due to the Benguela current which bypasses False Bay which picks up eddies from the much warmer Agulhas current.

Scott - Thanks for the comment.
Quite a lovely spot with the tulips, I love the stone wall as a backdrop.

Peter - What a wild sky in the first one!

Hi All,

It's been quite an intense past few days and I've not been able to keep up with the thread at all, but I can see from this page alone there's plenty of amazing photographs to catch up on. However much as I love my hobby and the inspiration I get from the work people post here there is something more important and this past week that was being with my son in hospital after he was taken ill. Thankfully he is much better, back home and recovering well but it's made for quite some stressful time.
I have a small contribution that reflects how things feel at the moment with the 180mm and TC2012





Blowin' in the wind.







But he's back home now and on the mend.
