Thanks for the welcome back, guys!
Leighton, I hope I can hop in every now and then, but even today it didn't work, and choir hasn't even started yet.
Curtis, I loved that photo, but especially the good memories about it. You had a sore butt for days, right? ;-) Hopefully we can travel again in the future, I don't care where the journey will take us.

The 105/1.8 is a lens that handles fantastic. The 135/2 feels good, but much, much bigger than the well-balanced fast 105.

Buddy, the dog-portrait is very nice. I like the stately look/expression of your dog.

Jeff, love the framing of your desert landscape. A good week for you too.

Chin, "the highlight" is one of those well seen and captured views I like so much.

Tom, nice work with the 85/2 on Acros. I really like this film, it's just pretty expensive here as 135/36 and I think about replacing it (in 135) with the much cheaper T-Max 100. The price-difference for 120's is not worth mentioning fortunately ;-)

Philippe, #3 from Omaha Beach is a very strong photograph, I can't imagine the horror that took place there.

Thank you Jim and Georg.

Georg, since upgrading to LR5, I have not been back into PS Elements. Shooting with the 50/1.2 helped a lot as well. I love the two pics from the farm, I'd love to see more of it.

My significant other doesn't live in my home and has her own source of funds.

Thanks for all the details Curtis. I have to admit, I am still somewhat at a loss with all of this Nikon terminology. H.C., K, etc. I read the Mir site from time to time but find it hard to learn small details like what these letters mean.

I dont know if non AI lenses can mount on my FM2. I see a lot of these older lenses in the store, hundreds in fact. There are 30-40 used camera stores in one mall here and they all have a Nikon manual focus lens cabinet, some holding 50 or more lenses.

Being an expat in China, most of my living expenses are paid for, so I have far more money for my hobby that I would at home. Enough to be seriously tempted by Zeiss manual focus lenses (the 21mm Distagon is my dream lens). My wife would be bewildered by me owning 3 or more of the same focal length and I have to admit, so would I! I tend to always favor the fast lenses so buying an f/2.8 lens of a f/2 or faster lens I already owned would probably sit unused. If I had a choice between an 85mm f/1.4 and f/2.8, I would have easily taken the f/1.4, regardless of the weight. It is very rare, almost unheard of, that I selected the f/2 85 over the faster lens. This time I figured f/2 was fast enough and I think the smaller size on my FM2 works out real well.

Leighton, here are two more shots from the farm, taken in the style requested by the papers (eye-contact).
This one is from the apple-harvest 2009:

D700, Ai 28/2 at f/2.8, SB-800 highspeed-synced in a small softbox
I like the flare and the light - the framing not so much as of today

...and here's one from 2012:

D3s, 105/1.8 Ais at f/2 - I don't recall the role of the ugly wires

Curtis this portrait is first rate. I am sure he wants a copy of that!






Ron beautiful sky and the lens porn is first rate!

Peter great eye on this one






Chin I love the door and I am sure Leighton loves it

Scott wonderful bokeh play on the tracks

I like this one best Leighton






Tom great timing on this one






Rinie so happy to see you posting again. We miss you

Georg love the photos using the 20mm 3.5 AIS. I am thinking seriously about getting that lens. The photos in the apple orchard are so nice!

Phillippe you did a great job capturing photos From Omaha Beach. Not an easy task I might add. Well done!

Jeff your desert photo is first rate

Buddy very pretty photo of your "best friend"?

Jose nice catch on the bird flying away and looking back. Perfect timing.

Here's some shots taken today using the 35mm 1.4 After using this lens all day I do believe it is my go landscape and all around lens. Such a sharp lens and the colors render to my liking. Taken at Circle B Bar Reserve and yes I did use my tripod
The last one is using the 105 2.5P

This one is great although I would clone out those people in the distance.

That bird crossing the road sort of makes me laugh.

Ray, all are beautiful pictures, but what are those two birds?

I could wander around for weeks in Florida chasing those birds for photos.

Thanks Tom. He was guarding his catch and kept looking to see if I would try to steal it. It was very funny.
Thank you Samy the first is a Limpkin brown and the second is a Sandhill Crane.

First shots with 28/2.8 AIS that I received earlier this week. Saw these two while running an errand, had to turn around and get a picture.







I guess they wore out their little scooters and are onto Mom and Dads computer chairs. The little girl lit up a smile and the boy launched his chair down the side walk in a spin raising his arms in victory as he stopped.

Haha how true RM, I laughed at the bird crossing the path image too

Georg, the composition for the first seems fine to me. I think the wires are meant for framing the subject...

From the tracks. All taken with the 105 2.8 ais micro. In the second image below, I was trying to channel some of that great inspiration from Ben. My apologies for the weak attempt. Thanks for looking.

One of many from today.

ALL the weather forecasts totally blew it as it was not supposed to be this nice today. We were supposed to do an over-night backpacking trip with just me and the twins. Instead I chose to take a walk-on ferry ride to Friday Harbor on San Juan Island for lunch and the weather was spectacular until the very last bit of the trip on the way back.

16/3.5 AI as usual.
