I really like the colors of this shot. Very pleasing.

i'm thinking of bidding on it. i'm debating between that and a used 15mm sigma AF fisheye. what would be considered a high amount to pay for that 16mm nikon lens?



Hope someone got it for 365

Great story Tom. I do believe a print leaves an impression a digital copy on screen can not equal. I also believe an analog film to paper enlargement has a certain added flair as well. Its a shame printing and developing is so expensive nowadays and a few rolls of good film cost $50' ish

I do occasionally have some of my files printed but pixels and grain are not quitd alike. I think I have to set up my darkroom again one of these days

here are some images i shot with a reversed 28mm f/2 ai-s

it was a fun thing to use, but it was quite difficult to get proper framing and focus, especially with bees!

i must have shot several hundred photos of bees with this setup and only got 1 or 2 decent shots, most were blurry or the focus wasn't in the right spot.

Well Tom, spurred on by what you wrote previously about having my film camera with me but not shooting anything. I just grabbed a 4-roll pack of Ultramax 400 from the shelves (that was all they had in the local grocery store) and will be bringing two with me on my trip up north to Malaysia. This in addition to the 20 exposures of Delta 3200 left in my FM2. I leave tomorrow morning. I think this is where I say Challenge accepted.

I looked at the 28mm f2.8 Ronny - but 4am did me in. Not staying up that late or putting a sniper bid in.

Got a 28mm f3.5 yesterday so will get the f2.8 to marry up with it later.

Good to see we have other crazy MF people bidding on stuff too.

Nice close ups Peter.

I've not got into reversing lenses yet. I will stick with bellows and tubes for now.

Anyway here's a couple I took the other day.

C&C welcome as always

Using 180mm f2.8 + TC200 or PK13

Not quite up to Ronny's standard but working on it!!

Welcome to all the most recent new folks! With such a variety of these lenses going back more than half a century, hope you folks know what you are getting into, especially with all the helpful folks on this thread nudging you along

Peter Z, I don't see your reversed lens images, there's a message saying the images are copyrighted.

I guess we have to wait then to see that egret image RM

What I am amazed at is you and a few other folk using film. The digitial world has us spoiled rotten, I can't imagine taking a picture of an egret and getting the exposure right using film. But someday given enough time, I might just give film a shot.

BTW, I did insist on manual transmissions until a few years ago when I injured that particular knee and needed surgery. Its healed enough now that someday I may go back to the joy of shifting gears.

When I first got my first DSLR about 6-7 or so years ago (D50), it took me just 2-3 weeks before I gave up on the auto everything setting and started trying out "M". With the AF lenses I learned to work manual focus for shots like birds in a middle of foliage or a spider web. So the retrogressive evolution towards these manual lenses was just normal progression

Good morning All!

A turn of events on the drive in to work this morning (not me driving) caused me to recall an event earlier in life which has put me in the mode to write. Since this is my chosen forum for all things photographic, I hope this is of interest to some and if the muse strikes to reply, I'll be interested in your take on this.

While riding into work today we passed a farm field that had a dozen or so egrets standing around. I was wish that I could stop and take a photo here
...Show more

Great story RM. What an interesting way to meet your future wife.

As far as printing...I somewhat agree with you but I think you can be just as equally satisfied in the digital age. I stopped printing at home because of the cost to get quality prints. I send all that I wish to print now to Mpix. They're cheap and fast. They also do quality work. John's idea about the photo books is another great idea. There's also blogging. My wife has a farm blog with hundreds of images from her and me in the posts. With over 500 posts now it will be around for our kids, and our grandchildren to enjoy for years to come.

Anyway, just my two cents added.

Peter Z. - The last one is very nice.

Steve - Hope you intentionally increased saturation, because that barley looks mighty green!

Thanks Samy.
