Thanks so much Curtis. In your honor, here's one where I tried to emulate your terrific flower shooting style.

Emulate is such a great word, much better than copy or steal.


Very nice! The colors are so beautiful!

guys i am selling my Nikkor 85mm 1.4 AIS, I will get the 28mm 2.8 AIS, but i am sad to say i am going af to the 35mm 1.4 from sigma, and maybe the nikkor 300mm f/4D, or the Nikkor 400mm 2.8 ais, maybe! I love the 85mm 1.4 ais, but i need the 1.4 in af so itll be easier for me, weird, but true. the longer lenses i need to shoot my sons games, and other portrait styles as well, however, i am not big on people photography! Also, could anyone offer advice price wise, based on my ad? thank you!

Thanks for hearning me out! Happy photography! -Americo the Strange

I am heading to FL again for a week. I am bringing the 25-50mm and probably a AF lens.
Here one today with the Nikkor-PC 105mm f2.5

Ray, those recent pics from Florida have been too inviting, may just have to take a trip down there soon. Then I have to figure out what gear to bring and stay clear of the gators


Samy, take the 400 5.6 EDIF and a teleconverter!

These are very nice Samy. I especially like the colors in this one.

I tried to use the 28 3.5 PC as I believe it should be used today and took a mixture of images. Exif is meaningless so I won't post it.


Peter, great series! I like the daisies and background in the first.

Quick shot from the past weekend. 80-200/4.5 with a full stack of Vivitar Extension tubes (68mm I believe).

I did an audit of my lens use and I was rather surprised. I use the Series E 50/1.8 the most, followed closely by the 80-200/4.5 (extension tubes have boosted its usage dramatically). All the rest are a LOT less used. The up and comer is the 28/3.5. I wish I had wider though...


Lovely Kevin.

I went out to the Circle Bar Ranch today to take some photos. Usually I take my 300mm to look for birds and gators, but today I was armed with my D600, tripod and 24mm 2.8 AIS. I wanted to take some shots of the marsh land that is so beautiful and prevalent here. So I mounted my camera on my tripod and off I went


This fellow was starting off on the levee trail that runs between the marsh and the stream.

Great work and discussions. Friday - Cruising Grand Escondido - 16mm 3.5, it was very hard to try to get a good photo, as much as I love this lens for natural landscapes, it is much easier to work with the 15/18/20mm rectilinears for urban jungles.

I love this series Rafael. Granted, the fisheye has its way of rendering a scene but I really appreciate how you've used it here. And I agree with Bert, the colors are delicious. That Pontiac looks VERY much like the 1960 Bonneville convertible I owned. It seemed a bit like an aircraft carrier when I maneuvered it through a tight space. This is what my car looked like...

Phillippe - thank you. I'm still blown away by the sharpness of all your images and the latest one of your daughter is superb. The water is also cool.

Curtis - I like the pp of "Nikki". Don't have a dropbox and while I'd love to participate I have a lot of housecleaning to do with my own shots!

Kevin - I like the rose and love my 80-200 on tubes too. Probably the easiest lens to use for macros.

Steve - I had a feeling there was a professional quality to your pics and have just had a squiz at your website. Very nice indeed as are the latest group of images.

Jeff - thanks for the comment. I'm starting to really like this lens even though it is quite exacting to use. I feel that Nikon really have the 28mm focal length just about perfect in any configuration (witness Phillippe and Ray's images amongst others) and now I'm likely to turn into a mini- Curtis or Rafael with more lenses than I can ever use!!
It's a bit of an overkill, something like having three toilets in a house occupied by two people. One has to be very acrobatic to get proper use out of them

Jeff - Table Top reef and the Strelitzia are both superb and indicate your expertise and versatility.

Scott - thank you

Dylan - you just keep on doing it right!

Rafael - excellent series - I just love the Beetle!

Curtis - I think the Nimitz class carriers are smaller than your Pontiac was. Nice shot.
