Ray and Ronny, thanks for commenting.

Bert, what a spetacular macro of the fly + flower with the humble 135/3.5 + tube;

Ray, magnificent pano with 16/3.5, almost HDR-like;

Curtis, loved the beautiful chest set;

Peter, excellent captures of the Bar Throated Apalis;

Ronny, you continue to perfect (if that is possible!!) your art of flower photos with tubes!


Continuing the frugivorous birds series, this time with the 800/5.6 wide open, the acrobatic Sayaca Tanager:

D7000 + Nikkor 800mm f/5.6 ais ED + tripod, ISO 1600, f/5.6 at 1/80s, ~40% cropped. Conditions were of poor light, so I needed high ISO and a wide open lens.
Exif showing a 400mm is wrong, because I forgot to change the lens on the non-CPU menu of the camera.
Too bad the 800/5.6 is one of those lenses that need "heavy surgery" to implant a CPU chip.

Thanks to all who commented on my Mercedes car series images posted here http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/929565/2964#11638185

This series was shot at the Louwman Museum (owned by a wealthy private car collector) in Den Haag/Holland. These cars were part of a unique exhibition of very rare and priceless pre-WWII Mercedes race and record cars.

When I visited the exhibition it was quite crowded, I had to wait, watch and shoot for about 2,5 hours till the end of opening hours to find opportunities to shoot the cars without people in sight. Iso values of up to 3.200 were necessary. No problem with the D700's sensor and the excellent noise reduction in Lightroom 4.

The whole series of images (including images shot with my favorite lens, the 105mm f2 DC) can be viewed here http://www.flickr.com/photos/lucdeschepper/sets/72157632140971686/

Jose, I've enjoyed your latest bird series. You really have some beautiful birds in your neck of the woods.

We are truly blessed with so many fine photographers sharing such wonderful photos. That we're doing all of this work with old lenses inspires as well. We've got a good thing going here. I'm proud to have my name on the thread.

Luc, nice one of the rail. Speaking of the 50/1.2, here's a little bokeh play with that lens at 1.2.

Jose, love the whole frugivorous birds series, the last one is another stellar shot! Your moon-images are nothing short of spectacular, wow!

Curtis, I like your recent B&W's a lot: the flower works very well "reduced" to grey-tones.

Ronny, as usual: thanks for sharing your fine art from Sweden!

Randy, welcome! Your D50 delivers some wonderful colours.

Peter from Knsyna, wonderful bird-portraits! Tricking the birdie with an iPhone is a a great idea ;-)

Samy, love the red-nosed Mustang! The street-performer is very nicely captured too!

Bert, what a beautiful set! Love the sunset and the carpenter-shot!

Leighton, the lock is a classic B&W-subject, love it!

Philippe, the WW1-veteran-homage images are touching. I like especially the second picture a lot for it's multi-dimensional look.

Chin, sorry for this rather general remark: I like your shooting style a lot.

Roland, your glacier-images are very well done, my personal favs are #1 (stellar shot!) and the B&W.

Laura, another very nice set from the air show! I like especially the F86-image.

Rafael, love the steam-tractor-pictures!

Ron, nice shots of the turtle!


AND: Thanks for your kind comments on the charcoal-burner!

I think what you really want is a trip to that museum...

And don't forget there are a number of outstanding MF lenses Nikon makes at 105mm, so you could always save a few dollars and use the saving to apply to a plane ticket... The best experience I've had as an airline passenger have been when flying KLM to Amsterdam...

So many nice images. My company is moving to a new location this week. I still manage to shoot a few but not able to leave comments on your posts. I clicked "liked" on a lot of them Hopefully things will be back to normal for me in a few weeks.

Bedankt, Luc! I prefer B&W, but at least #2 doesn't work in grayscales ;-) Love the rail-shot, btw.

I'm delighted we're attracting participants from Europe, now with Luc and Ronny joining Georg and Philippe. I must say we're very fortunate in having four such fine photographers entertaining us with photos from Europe. Love the work you folks are posting!

True about #2. The bold red works very well with the other colors. Also excellent use of large aperture for small dof. Danke gleichfalls!
