Stepped back a lil'
Had a difficult time tracking
If only they'd stop moving so much
Don't they understand anything about composition?

Wish I'd been there to join the conversation Leighton... such fun.

Today I was meeting with friends and arrived a bit early. I noticed the shadows created by the morning sun shining through the staves at the back of the bench and had to grab the camera from the trunk of my car. I mounted the 55 f/1.2 S.C. AI'd. I took three shots, first the bench, then a friend, finally a lotus flower as I was leaving. Always good to have a camera handy. In sequence, f/1.2, f/1.4, f/2.

I love this type of shot and you nailed it. The processing is quite good as well.

Ronny - Another great shot of Nitro!

Ben - Alright I guess this will have to do, for now. But when it warms up... And yes, that's my favorite zoom sitting on the table.

Samy - I thought perhaps that the shot of the Cloisters mansion was your house.

Curtis - The fast lens line-up is my dream collection if the 180 was added. I wouldn't need anything else except maybe...

Rafael - Love the car set, especially the second one showing how that lens separates the subject. I also liked how you processed them.

Jay - I don't remember if I welcomed you, but welcome! Love the Finch shot.

Chin - I think I like this one better.

Great set Georg, but I love this one for a couple of reasons. The statue as one of the subjects, the concerned look of the old man and the smoke coming out of the other guys mouth. You did a good job setting this up.

I saw this tree downtown yesterday morning and liked how the light was hitting it. Taken with the 50-135mm.

Jay, the place was reserved for an event yesterday, will need to swing by again some day to check out the interior. Beautiful finch with the 500.

Georg, the two in deep conversation and the stained-eye statue keeping an eye on them is very evocative!

Jeff, love the balloon and barn in S. Cal.

Lieutenant, more street photography magic from you!

Chin, nice captures of the bees and the hexagonal cell architecture!

The Cloisters, after some more post processing in PSE. Leighton, if I owned that place, there would be an annual Nikon manual focus (including AF defectors from this thread) conference there

35 1.4N, f8.

It's car show season again. The Nikon 35mm f2 AI is now paired with a D700. Woot!

I think our wives believe we're a bad influence on each other, not to mention the rest of you!



Wait a minute! Is that the market adjacent to the downtown mall in Charlottesville? Go up there all the time! Have lunch at Hamilton's. My wife shops at that French linen place! I take photos of the crowd in the mall!

Wait a minute! I've bought lettuce from you! I would even post my last photos of your Farmer's market, but they were taken with an X Pro1!

Leighton and I had a great visit yesterday. Besides keeping him from getting any "work" done, we did have the ladies rolling their eyes with all the gear talk.

Here a few quick snaps of the market. All taken with the 28 2.8 AIS.

Chin, we did return home with some of their fine produce. Cannot wait to convert it into dinner tonight.

Scott, the last shot is hilarious and very cool at the same time. Hats off to your wife who set you and Leighton up between "chicken" and "American lamb"

I think the credit card logos between their Nikon gear heads is most appropriate

Yea Jim, that's the wife. She shoots with a Panasonic at the moment, but she was REAL interested in that little Nikon P7700 of Joanne's. I have to say, I was even interested in it, looked like a well built camera.

Sorry David, wrong city. This is the Staunton farmers market. Just ask Scott how to pronounce it.

Howard, I can't quite describe it, but this is another example of how the 8 elements in 6 groups of the 35mm ai (and ais) renders in a magical way. There is almost a soft glow to the image. I have one too...best $75 I ever spent. The 35mm f1.4, or f2.0 AF, & AF-D don't have it.
