Here are a couple random shots. I was thinking about the first one for the weekly assignment with the theme "out of place."






Boats on a Roof Nikon D800 Nikkor 28mm 2.8 ais 1/500s f5.6 ISO 100






Dark Sky Pelicans Nikon D800 Nikkor 105mm 2.5 ais 1/320s f5.6 ISO 100

Another pano from this past week. 45/2.8 P with a B+W Kaesemann CPL. 6 portrait image stitch (assembled in PS6 via automerge after some adjustments in NX2) hand held.
1/180 sec, f/5.6, ISO 200

I swear every time I use this CPL sharpness takes a noticeable hit, though not evident in this image due to the size.

Similar to the one-shot wide angle I did with the 16/3.5.

This one might deserve a big print that hangs in the living room . .


Print it, frame it, hang it! Just beautiful John.

No sunlight this morning so this leaf came in handy indoors. Three cheapo studio lights arrayed close around it. Used the 50 1.2 AIS on a tripod with newly replaced wireless remote. (exif is wrong, thought I had changed it from the 35mm). Don't look too closely at the background. Had to clone out lot of bright spots

1/80s, f/11 and ISO400.

I just have to say:

It was my wife's birthday so I let her splurge
I remember sliding my card across the counter
Choose the accommodation you like, I said
Feeling like a million bucks and with a twinkling smile to boot
Anything, a break from the all motels and caravan parks

And so we arrived to pick up the keys from the Visitor Center
The intermediary, with said owner miles and miles away
I whipped out my wallet, the printed deposit sheet in my hand
When we were told that it just wasn't possible to pay
Because the booking wasn't done through the Center
But a third-party aggregate website
...Show more

Chin, great story and beautiful image.

Thanks for all comments.

Leighton, loved the bokeh playing;

Peter (SA), what a view you have, nice debut with the 28 PC!

Samy, gorgeous red leaf;

Rafael, what a truly spetacular steal you got with that near pristine 135/3.5! Congrats;

Ray, simply gorgeous scenarios you have posted lately.



This afternoon I experimented for the second time my modified (by a Canadian guy at ebay) TC16A. It could be my fault, but with the D7000 and the 180/2.8 I had a low % of keepers. Perhaps my combo needs an AF-tune adjust or simply I need to use a tripod!!
We need to manual focus then the TC does a fine AFocusing.
Peter B is correct, the TC deteriorates the image specially wide open. AF was sometimes "hesitating"
This was the only decent shot with the combo this afternoon:


Male Burnished-buff Tanager


Male Burnished-buff Tanager with a Nikkor "288mm f/4.5" semi-AF lens by labecoaves, on Flickr

One of the first test shots with the modified TC16A + D7000.
Nikkor 180mm f/2.8 AI-S ED + TC16A (= 288mm f/4.5) hand held, ISO 500, f/2.8(=4.5) at 1/400s. ~40% cropped
Exif shows a 145mm lens at f/4, but this is due to the modified CPU. In fact ViewNX2 reads a 70-210mm f/4 lens!!

On my way home the other evening, just before sunset, I spied this tractor in a hay field. Leighton, it is for sale! I like how the driver sits off-center. Taken with the 105 2.8 ais wide open (as a test). I did not hit the focus as well as I should have.
