And enough of flowers. For variety, here's leaves

Both with the 85 1.8 HC, f/5.6, ISO 640, and about 35mm extension with PK-13 + PK-11.

Spotlight on leaf fur.






Hexagonal background for leaves.

Thanks Ronny. I love this one. You are making it harder and harder to resist the 135/2.

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 can't believe you're shooting in color. This is sacrilege.

Careful with spot metering. On non-CPU lenses spot metering will only use the center focus point.

As for me, I added a new Nikon branded lens to my stable -- a 20/4 AI.

Nice Zippy. I have considered getting this lens. Please post more with it.

I definitely need to play around with it a bit more. The corners improve dramatically through /11 and my 58mm polarizer vignettes quite heavily on it. But... it's so small.

With Dean showing up I'd note that the 50 f/1.2 AI-s is one of his favorite lenses. He actually bought one brand new from a shop in Hong Kong. Sadly, we don't have the ability to go directly to photos or I'd direct you, Tom, to a couple of his wide open shots of trolleys. I love those shots. I'm with Dean completely, your film work definitely adds something special to this thread.

How much longer will you be in China? And when are we going to see some photos of your family? What kind of school do your children attend
...Show more

You're right ... I love this lens

These are the two shots you spoke of ...

The weather was nice this morning so, I waited on the front porch for the hummingbirds to arrive. This time I was able to capture them while feasting on our flowers.

All with the 200mm F4 Ai

This thread moves!

This is from The Canadian Museum of Nature. Funny, most people take their cameras there to get shots of the exhibits. I spent my time looking for interesting takes on the people looking to get shots of the exhibits.

Dylan, very nice composition and use of the fisheye.

Samy, Leighton, Ray, Dylan, nice images from you guys lately.

From the village of Grimentz, canton de Valais, Switzerland, with 50/1.8 ais:




These are very nice Philippe. Nice rich colors and detail.

Bert, you do remarkable work with the humble 200 f/4. This last set is quite spectacular. Add your work to what Samy and Ronny have posted recently and we're in rather rarefied territory when it comes to close work, with and without tubes. Wow!

A few from the local farm market today. Leighton, this is half the size of your market. They did have live music and great produce. About 10 vendors.

It was near midday so I used a polarizer to try and tame the harsh light. All taken with the 50 1.4 SC. Thanks for looking.
