Had to make sure this made it to the next page, great shot Chin! I'm not sure what it looks like on your computer, but it looks fine on my calibrated monitor.

I love this shot Chin. I'm glad you pulled out to one MF lens to take it. This may be evening but it feels like morning... It goes well with my morning Earl Grey tea...

Heh thanks. It just looks darker by almost half a stop comparing Flickr and PS + FM

It's sunrise actually ... Seen through a 10-stop filter

Thanks Jeff and Georg.

Excellent shots from everyone!

Samy, loved your work with the 13.5cm and the 400+ TC16!

Rafael, beautiful images with the 5.8cm. Have to check out the difference in focusing with the 55.

Here's a mourning dove keeping an eye on me. 400 5.6 ED AIS + TC16A.

Samy, nice color in this. The surroundings complement the dove well.

Jose, I like the way this jumps off the background. Feels like you could touch it.

Thank you Curtis. I am going to study this before my next trip south.

Some lovely shots this weekend, I wish I had more than a few moments and could comment on them all, but thanks to everyone for sharing.

Thanks also for the kind comments on the peacock shots.

I just have one I'd like to contribute, 300mm at sunset. Pre aimed before the sun reached the building so as not to look into the sun which is not reccomended.

Georg - great street shots and I love the orange juice on the barrel - the others are also tops.

Jeff - I hope you have a wall full of great prints like "balloon". Magic.

Rafael - lovely Packard pics. Also the Buddhist images.

Phillippe - you just keep making excellent captures! However, Armagnac or Calvados may improve your angle of view

Curtis - the bench is outstanding!!

Jose - the epiphyte is awesome!

Chin - well trained bees. Immaculate as always.

Leighton and Scott - love the interaction. Don't believe that Leighton actually snatched the bag out of Barbara's hands for the shot! How low can you go?

Samy - beaut bird and water lily!

needed to change this post - the image was on a 20-35mm AF lens after all...

but a recent D7000 300mm f/4.5 EDIF can stand in, as I move the other one to the MF shooting AF thread

Rafael did you have an accident with the corvette?

So many great posts here, don't know were to start:

Peter from Madison, the light is great on your plane-close-up!

Philippe, Cognac seems to work just fine, judging by the very dynamic shot above ;-) I just can't image how this particularly image would look if taken under the influence of diet-coke as example...

Mark, very nice sunset! Looks like a very peaceful evening.

Jose, I like the Epiphyte-photograph a lot. The 50-135 seems to be a great and very versatile lens. I just don't think I could live with the "interrupted" focusing mechanism - I hate the hard focusing-stop at my Ais 35-135.

Leighton, what a beautiful light on the "downtown-tree"! Well spotted and captured.

Chin, I really like the lighthouse-shot. Colors and contrast seem fine to me. The PC-E 45 is already one of my favorite Nikkor's.

Samy, very nice portrait of the dove!

Jeff, "Barn and Balloon" is wonderful! I like everything about this „landscape with a bonus".

Rafael, I like your set from the Bhuddist Temple, the rendering of the old 5.8cm-Nikkor works great (on your Corvette too!).

Howard, very cool shots from the car-show!

Chuong, very nice last shots with the D700! Hope you'll like the D600.

Jay, I love your Finch-portrait, the framing is great, the sharpness excellent.

Scott, I'm sure the dinner made from the farmers-market products was great. I hope to see some more of your pictures from this journey soon.

Thanks for the nice words about the B&W-portraits and the "other stuff", really much appreciated!

Regarding the blue canister with the juice on top: I have no clue what it is, I will remember this ensemble just as the "yellow-blue-mysteriosum".

Here's another shot from this fun-fair, an old East-German bus converted into a "play-mobile" ;-)

I've used the colorful car-face to practice handheld tilting with the PC85/2.8D, this time just about 4 degrees of tilt were needed.

Samy, thanks for your 35-bokeh-check! Nikon's old 35's are always in for a surprise, I know the rendering of these lenses suit not everybody's taste, but I like it ;-)
