another 360 degree panorama - this one on Mather Pass in Kings Canyon National Park. 20mm f/3.5, 14 vertical frames stitch

The view north is the valley on the left, showing the Palisades range, the view south is the valley in the right half of the image, showing Upper Basin and Split Mountain (under the darkest blue sky). The image breaks facing about southwest.

Ron, nice work at Longwood Gardens - my favs are #1 and 2.

Peter B, the first night-time shot from the Muir pass is great. The Sally-Lake-images look inviting ;-)

Peter Z, love the still-life with the 5cm.

Rafael, the sunset-lit flowers are beautifully captured.

James, very cool still-life with the 16/3.5!

Ray, nice sharks!

Dylan, love the fenced-in men.

Jeff, the table-top sunset-image looks peaceful, I like it a lot.

Chin, as usual excellent work with camera and words on the sunset-pano.

Leighton, dealing with a P&S for some time can be a good experience. Hope that thing isn't pink colored or so ;-)

Thanks Georg.

Some really great stuff being posted lately.

Took a short walk after work today with the 105/2.5. That thing is super hard to focus for me compared to my 28/2 and even my 55/1.2 wide open. Actually, the 55 is a breeze. Things pop into focus and I know exactly when to click. The 105/2.5 reminds me of trying to focus MF lenses before I changed out my screen. Maybe I need to upgrade to the 105/1.8....hmmmmm....

Got a few I like. A handful for now:

Sometimes I feel like the tree on the right, on winter where there is ample water and sunlight it drops all its leaves and it looks like a giant stick. In summer when it is hot and dry it blooms green so heavy with leaves it feels like local rainforest. This three knows not where it is and it behaves as it did where it evolved.

It sets it own rules and finds the means to sustain them.

So hot today, summer in socal is september and october. This 3.5 cm 2.8 from 1960 is incredibly sharp int the center, not so in the edges, it also has errors in exposure at different apertures not sure why, it underexposes.

Got a new piece of gear today... I have wanted one of these to do real macro for as long as I have been into photography. Today I got a LN- PB-4 bellows unit, in box with paperwork and exposure card. It is in amazing shape with only one blemish that I should be able to polish. I don't think the slide and tilt has ever been unlocked. Not sure if I will ever really use it, but its a beautiful piece.

I also got a 55/2.8 Macro that is NIB. The issue is that it sat in a very hot location standing upright. The focus is seized and there is oil on the aperture. Any idea on how much a CLA might run?

Friday, it is Cruising Grand Street again, there are only two weeks left. This time it is fire engines that are cruising. Took the 3.5cm 2.8 from 1960, it is ai converted, sharp lens in the center and it gets near perfect at 5.6 and 8.0. Not in the same league as the 2.0 and 1.4 at 4.0 and below. But it works, heck I do not know a nikkor that does not work.

It was very hot, it inspired respect for fire fighters.

There were Mack fire engines:

Rafael, really liking those old fire engines. Any old firefighter vets around? Their faces are so full of character.

The one with the dog, is that horse drawn?

Dylan, there were plenty of old firefighters around, but I am very shy about photographing people that I do not know. Greatly enjoy the humanity in your photos, but that is Dylan's strength not Rafael's.

The old engine was horse drawn, beautiful gray horses, but they were mobbed by the crowd. Could not get a picture of them.

Rafael, another nice set! I like especially the second shot for the framing and the sense of motion (panned a bit).

Dylan, the comic-guy is well portrayed, the gent with the clear focus too ;-) The 105/1.8 is an extremely well handling lens, btw...
