Up to speed again - more really nice images.

I must confess that I had to smile at the fact that some of us are in the position to choose to become vegetarians - all of us are her because the majority of our ancestors weren't rich enough to have these choices. We have moved so far away from "kill or be killed", eat what you can when you can, that we sometimes become a bit patronising to those less fortunate than ourselves.

Off my soapbox - we'll be in the land of milk and honey tomorrow - USA here we come

I hope I wasn't being patronizing! If so, I apologize to anyone who was offended.

Eric, wow, hope you all got safe and dry home. The cloud looks scary and beautiful at the same time, especially in B&W.

Sorry for all the posts today, but it's the only day I have time to partake so much. Here's another from the fair with the 28. I think they're sisters.

Curtis - congrats on the 20 3.5 - love the tilted mannequins.

Eric - amazing cloud pics.

Leighton - those sister pigs look very well fed and relaxed. A lot of your subjects seem to be sleeping lately - what's that about?

that one is hysterical, Leighton!

Thanks for the comments, LEighton and Georg - I think I like the B&W, too. One of these days I am going to try Silver EFX or whatever it is called, and see how it works. My B&W seem flat to me, compared to those produced by you with more experience and expertise.

That storm was something else. We were on the northeast coast of FL and the storm rolled in from SW to NE and out over the water. There was apparently a possibility of a tornado, but nothing really came of it - it looked worse than it was. Never seen so much lighting, though, as we did that and the previous eve. Almost constant for hours, and all over the place.

My brother is a true weather guy and so we always know what's coming. And what to watch for....

Thanks George, Leighton, Samy, Ray, and Jeff! It has definitely shaken the community, and thankfully the Toronto PD has announced they are reviewing their use of force with those under obvious mental duress. Let's hope these events won't have been in vain.

Great train photos Scott!

Ronny, it seems like you've gotten up to speed with the 28mm f/2.8 AI-s pretty quick! Great shots. Love the scene with the bench.

Eric, the clouds in your final b+w image are stunning.

I was wandering around with the NIKKOR*ED 180mm f/2.8 AI-s today. Both of the below are wide open. The 180mm is pretty forgiving if you focus about 10-15m in front of you for DOF, though it also doesn't wipe out backgrounds quite like it does with a shorter object distance. Still, fun to practice focusing on moving objects like this.

There is a curious building a bit East of the above photo with a strange horn on the top of the back of the building. I have no idea what it's for, but was interested enough to take a picture.

Thanks Curtis, Leighton, Georg, Ronny and Ray for weighing-in on the Sandpiper shot.

Georg, I'll play around a bit with the setting of my "fog machine" and try some different levels. Printing a couple examples and pulling out my old loupe might be the way to go on this one.

Philip, your focusing skills are excellent. Moving subjects with the 180/2.8 wide open are "safe" when I'm around ;-) The horn looks really strange, it must be a loud beast judging by it's size. Nice, kinda surreal shot!

Leighton, here's an image I took some weeks ago for a local paper. It was shot with the 180/2.8 and is showing a farmer/gardener and one of his "runner ducks".
As a "bio-farmer" he doesn't use industrial herbicides and pesticides. A slug-plague led him to "runner ducks" as highly efficient slug-killers. Now he has 4 of these ducks, all called Paul.
3 of them are for rent and have already cleaned several gardens from slugs. I thought you might enjoy the story.

the background is a bit busy for my taste, should have looked for a cleaner one...
