Curtis, congrats to your 300/4.5 H! I'm glad it works well for you (except for the long minimum focusing distance, but I'm sure you'll get over this issue with some tubes soon). There are some "H's" over here, one example in very nice condition, but too expensive for occasional just-for-fun use (250 Euros) and 2 modest priced examples look to worn for my taste (battered Ai-lenses are okay for me, the classic pre-K-lenses should show some patina, but no scratches, so to speak).
But I'm not in a hurry and with a bit of luck I'll find one of these classic Nikkor's.
Jose, the trush (sequence and single shot) is captured in your typical, wonderful manner. I like your approach to show behavior and habitat of your "subjects" and not just the beauty.
Btw, thanks for your PM regarding the 200/4Q, but it's much less hassle for me to buy kinda common lenses over here in Europe (no custom fees or import tax if I buy within the EU).
Thanks for your comment on the green apples in B&W ;-) The grain was added in PP - SilverEfexPro offers excellent control over faked film-grain. Not only the grain-size can be adjusted over a really wide range, it's acutance is also adjustable (think supersharp "Agfa-Rodinal-grain" vs the soft grain of a slightly mis-focused enlargement).
Scott, thanks for your comment on the minigolf-shot!
Ronny, the middle shot of your last flower-set is absolutely outstanding, and your standard is sky-high already
James, the jumping kitten reminds me in it's hilariousness of an Elliot-Erwitt-classic.
