I know well ! I recommend you the "Belle Ile en Mer" island and the "Golf du Morbihan"


Thanks. I was toying with going to Belle Ile so I think unless the weather is really bad I will do that. I have even managed to shed enough weight to take the tripod (I know Curtis, crazy talk). Hopefully some great pics will be taken, at least I know I won't be able to blame the scenery.

Mark, enjoy your trip and look forward to seeing more images from the Lieutenant's land! Very nice images in this set, the first of the flower and the last one of your son are the best!

More bokeh/highlights tests, this is a vintage 13.5cm f3.5 Q from ~1960 vs. the "modern" 135mm f2 AI from ~1981, this time tested at f/5.6. No PP at all (white balance is "As Shot") other than conversion to jpg.

Although your color shots are pretty cool, I like the rust shot in particular.

There have been too many fantastic images posted since my last check-in, but John, that's a great pano, and Ronny, your macro work is very inspired. Pictures such as those are what make this thread - and this community - great!

The older lens seems to have a much smoother rounded bokeh. Nice comparison.

That said, I was inspired to throw my Kenko tubes on the 180 AIS today and snap some shots in the backyard, just to see what would happen (I was home tending to a sick wife and had about 30 minutes to shoot).

This is the 180 with the 36mm tube.

For some reason I'm only able to post a single pic at a time tonight.

This second one is with the 36mm and the 20mm tubes; these are the same flowers I posted a few days ago.

And finally, a snap of a young downy woodpecker taken with the 500 f4 p. He was hopping around in the neighbors tree and paused long enough for me to get a few shots. I hope you enjoy the pics!

Thank you Curtis, Peter, Samy, Leighton, Jose, and Ronny for the comments and feedback.

Here a few more from western Virginia. All taken with the 28 2.8 ais. Comments and critique welcomed. Thanks for looking.

Yesterday´s late afternoon at the university campus I was lucky enough to capture some shots of a female Blond-crested Woodpecker foraging for fruits.
The light was poor so I needed ISO 1600, a wide open lens, and a monopod.
Shots wer ~10-11m away.

Acrobatic skills when foraging:

D7000 + Nikkor 400mm f/5.6 K ED ai'd + monopod, ISO 1600, wide open at 1/200s.
When foraging these small fruits this woodpecker displayed her acrobatic skills.

Frugivory is not uncommon among some woodpecker species,
