These are great. Should post these in the shooting with tubes thread in the macro forum.

Scott I love the colors and the composure is very nice!
Chuong these shots are outstanding. Your photography is an inspiration as your attention to detail shows in these photos.

Thanks Kevin. I was going to grab the 105mm macro but after reviewing the shots on the LCD, I decided that they are sharp enough

Here are a couple shots using the 85mm 1.4. I was driving down a street and noticed a beautiful yard full of flowers. I parked the car and took some pictures from the sidewalk. I guess one of the main reasons to buy a 1.4 lens is to shoot at 1.4

Ray, these are both nice, but this second image has a wonderful dreamy effect. Thank you for the comment.

Okay... Ray, Scott and Chuong... now is the time to refresh your bios in your profile so folks who haven't gotten to know you over the time you've participated can have a formal introduction. John noted the frustration of not getting to know folks, and then having the information lost in bygone posts. I tried to add a more comprehensive bio and the site accepted it. I think this is a great resource, especially for folks who spend considerable time on a thread where we get to know one another. Tells us about yourselves...

You know, there is probably another good reason to back off from the end of the zoom range: most lens reviews point out weaknesses at the ends - primarily the long end, but backing away from the extremes is like not shooting wide open. Makes good sense...


Dave, thanks for introducing yourself more fully in your profile. You've surely had an interesting life, with work related travel around the world. I tried to pull that off but could never get it to work. I'm not complaining about having spent over forty years in the San Francisco Bay area, nor about the many trips I've taken to Europe in particular. But it would have been nice to work in another part of the world. Most of us remain in our native land. It is the adventurous among who do as you did during your career. Glad you found us and I trust you'll find the lenses that work for you, including a few MF lenses of the sort we celebrate on this thread...

Rankin Ridge Looking South Just Before A Storm

Thanks much for the kind comments on the Fourth of July shots.

Bert, I like the look you're getting on your flower shots. The 200/4 is showing very well.

Francesco, beautiful flowers with the 135/2. I enjoy the open feel of your framing. Sorry, I don't have any experience with the 105/1.8, but I love the 105/2.5.

Samy, love the colors of the '56 Chevy!

Leighton, I liked your "glimpse of the future" shot.

Chin, isn't it fun when an idea comes to fruition? "Nighthood" is an excellent photo. I really like the lighting and the negative space you created. The roadside succulent is very nice, also.

Philippe, love the translucent gooseberries with the tubed 180. The composition and conversion you used in your portrait of Eléonore are first rate.

Ronny, beautiful flowers!

Jared, "place of quiet" is a very cool shot.

Georg, terrific portraits and I really like your "messy" shot. The flowers with the 105/4 are great. Wonderful colors!

Paul, you take very nice photos with expensive and "cheap" lenses alike.

Curtis, beautiful close crop with the tubed 135/2.8. The roses are gorgeous. Hope you and Sue are getting some R&R after the moving chores.

Chuong, nice bees and bambi.

Ray, beautiful roses!

Mark, "landing pad" and the Edelwiess are fine shots. Thanks for trekking to the wilds of your balcony to get them.

Roland, I really enjoyed your mountain shots.

Andy, very pretty shot with the 55/2.8.

David, thanks for the link to the Jean Michel Berts info. Very interesting.

Jose, gorgeous night sky with the 28/2.

Jay, lovely birds. Very nice colors.

John, I'll echo the positive comments on the sunrise shot; very striking. I really liked the simplicity and beauty of "time to leave."

Scott, your treatment of the industrial light fixture is very nice.

Ray these are amazing. Really smooth bokeh and fabulous isolation of subject.

Americo, you may want to turn down the flash and EV a bit. Too bad the cat moved on you.

Scott - That 105/2.8 would make a great alternative to the 2.5.

Chuong - Love the flowers, especially the second one.

Ray - Beautiful work with the 85!

John - Thanks for the tour of SD, still nice to see there's plenty of wilderness.

Peter- LOVE your avatar!
