Went for a hike today in Wind Cave National Park and the weather was looking iffy - and it turned out to be iffy as lightning started firing up in the not-so-far distance, wind cranked up, and a few rain drops started falling before we quickly retreated back to the cars.

Short hike, but spectacular views!

45/2.8 AI-P & 16/3.5 AI


Nice series John. Looks like a nice hiking place.

Great fireworks shots everyone! Rafael, love the red cast in yours, and Matt, always good to see you posting on the thread again!

A few from my trip to Zürich, where I had both the 28mm f/2.8 AI-s and 105mm f/1.8 AI-s with me. The purpose of my trip was to interview for a position at the Universität Zürich, the science departments having moved to the suburban Irchel campus that features brutalist 70s era architecture that would fit in moreso in Canada than Europe, but I've learned that the Swiss have very curious architecture all over. Here's a shot with the

Phillip, very nice b&w work here. Nice strong graphics.

Thanks for the Zurich photos Philip, a fine mix of color and black and white... good choices all. The burning question, however, is does it look like a place you'd like to work? Spending time in Switzerland and getting paid for it seems like a dream come true... at least it would for me. Of course, if the position were in Italy, I'd probably be even happier. Good luck with the job hunt.



Clearly you prefer pasta to rosti, and parmesan to emmentaler, Curtis!

Ronny, great work again! Love the seagull and the flower.

Jared, wonderful light on the pine-forest!

Rafael, the level of details captured with your 50-300 is really amazing for me. But sharpness apart, I like your photography too. The "jewel" is wonderfully taken, as is the second fireworks-shot.

Curtis, very cool framing on your Rotterdam-shot! Love the "Paradise-bokeh" and in general your latest work with the 55/1.2!

Philip, I like your Switzerland-shots a lot, and really love the B&W's. That's really great work!

Bert and Samy - very nice fireworks-shots! As for the best focal-lenghts for fireworks: I prefer rather short lenses, because I always try to get some recognizable buildings/landmarks at the bottom. The PC 28/3.5 works great for instance.

John, very nice work from your walk/trip/hike! I like especially the "9-bokeh" and "Almost there".

Kevin, I'm glad that the repaired 28/3.5 works so well for you.

Matt, I'm really glad that you're back here at this wonderful thread! The fireworks-shot rocks.

Georg, I misread the introduction to the photo above and thought it said "self-portrait" not "street-portrait..." We need a photo of you Georg. We had a round some time back of shared self-portraits but we didn't see anything from you. In fact, I'd encourage anyone on the thread who hasn't shared a photo of themselves to do so. It is quite natural that we would conjure up a mental image of each other when we haven't seen an actual image. I'd assumed, for example, that Scott was a bit older than he appeared in photos taken by Leighton. Think

Curtis, I'm not brave enough to shove my face into a camera ;-) I could ask my niece if she would grab a piece of charcoal and a sheet of paper for a contemporary "Georg"-portrait ;-)

Hi Georg,

Thnaks for the feedback, I always appreciate sugguestions from you (and all the others on this thread). You are right it would have been better to get the feet in, sadly my fault for rushing the composition. I cannot add what isn't there, but I can take away, perhaps the tighter composition works better.


Mark, in my opinion a tighter composition works best for the shot as taken, but I would keep a tiny bit of his trousers visible (I don't like cuts through "naked skin" in most cases). But that's just me and my personal taste.

Very nice shots!

This is number 2! Nice fireworks shots Matt. Hope that you and the family are doing well!

Kevin, your work in repairing the 28 turned out great.

John, the park is beautiful!

Rafael and Bert, excellent fireworks shots as well!

Mark, a few of us Americans still drive manual transmission. I'm currently stuck with auto in my truck but I drove an old manual toyota camry for awhile and will certainly be looking for a manual transmission when we hopefully get a small/mid-sized car sometime in the next 1-2 years.

Georg, excellent street portrait!

Philip, llovely shots of Zurich

Jared, a nice moody shot.

Ronny, your macro work with long lenses never fails to impress

The "Tres Hombres" (ZZ Top) for those that have NMFAS.

Had the chance to have three different 105mm variants at one time. L to R: 105 f2.5 AIS, 105 f2.8 AIS, and 105 f4 AIS. It was fun to compare them. Did some very unscientific testing and they all perform very similar at the same settings. The two macros are very similar up close at min focal distance. All three wide open produce nice results at normal to long range.

I am liking the 2.8 myself.

Hi gang! If you want to know who to blame for the high cost of healthcare in the States, that would be me and my family;-) The latest to visit the surgeon was my wife who, 10 days ago, had a complicated foot surgery. She's doing well, but can't bear weight so I've ben playing the role of sherpa, cook, chauffeur, etc. Hence, too little time for photography or keeping up with the thread. But I did get some free time on the 4th and this afternoon to catch-up. Sorry if this is overly long or if I miss anyone.

Ray, wonderful landscapes from the Smokys and the Charleston sets are terrific!

Curtis, I love your flowers and really enjoyed the change-up with the b&w. Very nice! The "cocky crow" is a wonderful shot.

Bert, really nice ones from Cape Cod. The "Plymouth Carpenter" is excellent.

Samy, love the P-51 and "FiFi" nose-up is a classic shot.

Peter, beautiful birds!

David, your flower shot looked very nice to me.

Ronny, wonderful flowers with your signature background. The sheep and fly shots are great!

Luc, more beautiful shots with the 50/1.2.

Leighton, love your "night lights" photo. Beautiful tulips and the garden shots with the 180/2.8 are top drawer.

Georg, "mini-golf" is a great shot. My perception of it went from "serious, structural" to "playful, funny" in a blink of an eye. Very well done! "Poor little thing" and the red poppies taken with the 45PC are really nice.

Rafael, love the smoggy steam tractors and the colors and compositions of the scrub oaks.

Mark, "sea at 1am" is a terrific long exposure shot.

Jose, you've posted some great bird shots recently. The berry-eating Thrush is gorgeous!

Jim, really nice ones of little Phoebe and the beautiful plant.

Scott, lovely shots from Williamsburg. The farm landscapes are my cup of tea, especially the one with the barn in the distance. Very nice!

Matt, welcome back! Great portraits.

Peter in Madison, I really like all the chess shots. The b&w is my favorite.

Chuong, very cool "baby wrap." Your daughter has a great smile!

Kevin, beautiful shots from vacation. I hope your health issues resolve soon.

Laura, wonderful prints! Love the photo of the T-6.

Sam, I really like "rise above the crowd."

John, "post-swim contemplation" is a winner! South Dakota looks like a beautiful and restful place to hike and take pictures.

Zippy, very nice train platform shot with the 28/2.8.

Alan, beautiful portraits!

Philip, nice ones from Zurich.

Francesco, Buddy, Randy, Diallo, Avi and Jared, welcome. Nice shots all!
