...Sue's portrait is very well done too, but she looks a little worried. Or is it that you're just pointing a camera at her again?


Actually, she didn't know I was shooting her and when she turned she asked what I was shooting. I caught her mid-speech. Despite all the uncertainty in her life we took Sunday off and had a glorious time. This walk in the woods was so refreshing for us both.

Today she found temporary housing that will be available on August 1. She will stay one month with friends, then move into an apartment at San Francisco Theological Seminary, which is about two blocks from her present home. Hopefully, that will prove a respite until she can find an affordable condominium to buy. In truth, this have been a remarkably graceful process, for which we are both very happy.

Thanks Bert, Leighton and Ray for comments on my D700 - 55 f/1.2 S.C. AI'd "watercolor." That was definitely the feeling I had when I first opened the image. These fast lenses are a delight to use, no doubt.

I meant to comment on those images as well, Curtis. I have seen your images as well as a few others with that same lens and I want one. With as often I use my 50 and wish it had just a tad more reach, I think the 55/1.2 would be perfect.

Thanks Curtis, I'll check back and now that I know he shoots with it I can look at some of his previous posts. I am looking for info specifically on the ED AI-S version.

if you just want to peek at some 50-30mm photos, check this link (it shows many from Rafael, since he hosts his images on Flickr, too)

How does one get their pictures to show up like this? Do you have to tag your images in a certain way or do you have to be part of a group?

My office move went well. One of my servers uptime was 6.5 years. I had to shut it down myself cause I didn't want anyone to take it down.

Looking forward to catch up with the forum tonight.

Ronny, I love not just your masterly taken shots, I really like your your post-processing too. The soft and warm colors on your last shot look wonderful.

Leighton, great work with the 180/2.8! I wrote this already some weeks ago: you could make every market-weekend a 180mm-weekend ;-)

Ray, I really like your "Smoky-set". Great colors and framing. The single tree should make a very nice poster-sized print (or a jigsaw-puzzle ;-).

John, I like the "Wide open space" a lot, just like the dog-images ("A good time in the grass" is my personal fav here).

Matt, just like Leighton I really like the image of Brandon with Summer.

Curtis, love the airy look of your flower-shot with the 55/1.2! The B&W-portrait is very nice too, I like your old-fashioned looking processing.

Rafael, the scrub-oaks are fantastic! I remember your take with the 85/1.8 on these trees and can't make up my mind if I love the super-wide-shots more or the one with the fast 85 ;-)

Bert, your fly-shots are amazing, very nicely done! edit: Your wasp-portraits are even better !

Scott, nice set from the fields! My personal favorite is the very first shot: love the framing and the cloud-shadows on the green.

Samy, I really enjoy your work with the superfast 35! Love how the blossom stands out at the second image.

Jared, welcome! I like your daisy-shots.

Kevin, it's great to see that you've overtaken your photo-funk. The portrait of John is great, I really like the punchy processing. I also like your take on the busts and the butterfly-shot.

The sun played peekaboo with me today - I went to a place I wanted to shoot in the late afternoon-sun for quite a while now. No chance, the sun was shining bright as long as I was in the car. Stepped out of the car and the sun hid behind some clouds. Time for a coffee back in the car, the sun came out. And so on.

Anyway, here are two cloudy shots:

Rostock Bonsai von georgsfoto auf Flickr
3 stitched horizontal shots taken with the PC 85/2.8D (lens wide open)


Rostock Wucht von georgsfoto auf Flickr
2 horizontal shots with the PC-E 45/2.8D at f/4 stitched to a square
(should have included more of the foreground to get diagonal lines starting at the corners)

Thanks for the kind comments on my past shots, much appreciated!

Thanks for posting that link. His images look really good.

I'm looking at one of these as a dual purpose lens: first to add to my MF glass collection and second as a reasonably priced, tripod mountable zoom to do double duty as a high quality spotting scope (with a Nikon scope converter onboard). I want to be able to go from 5-7X up to 30-40X and there aren't too many other lenses out there that would seem to fit the bill.

I don't want to use my 80-400G with it since it's going to be subject to some abuse. The 50-300 is a little bigger then what I would consider the perfect size but it appears to be built like a tank and it certainly looks to have the IQ one would want in a MF lens when I want to shoot photos with it.

it probably has to be some sort of tag you need to add to each image to have it filtered for a particular lens in the lens explorer subset of it

Georg, thanks for the kind words. Is this shot WITHOUT any corrections from the lens?

Took an evening off and took a walk with Brandon. I've missed our walks. All taken with the 85MM some with the PK-13.
