Steve, love the Coffehouse-shot!

Rafael, wonderful portraiture with the 5cm S! The expression of the strobed portrait is great. The not strobed images are beautiful too, love the rendering of the really old Nikkor!

Some wildly mixed shots from this evening, had some British gents in front of my cameras:


D3s + 28/2Ai


sliders to the max to enhance the mood - D3s+28/2


no business like show-business - D3s+28/2


I don't like shots of piano-players with hidden hands, but I love the flare here ;-)
The Ai'd Nikkor-H 85/1.8 was a bit long for most shots and didn't got much use.

Ray, your "train on a crane"-series is a joy to look at. My favs include the chassis "floating through the trees" and the bench-sitters with the 24/2.8.

Peter from Knysna, the glass-image is beautifully done.

Peter from Madison, your fall-splash-image looks like a lot of fun was involved in the making ;-) Great idea and I like the resulting picture.

Tom, your set from the rooftops is great, love especially the 1st and last one for your choice of framing!

Ron, nice action-shots from the horse-race! My personal fav is the second image.

Samy, the triptych from the museum looks really crisp. I like the rather dark, but very natural looking processing.

Rafael, the last two images from the dance-show are my favs from this excellent set.

John, nice set from the minigolf-trip! Your daughters seem to have no problems with proper manual focusing

Leighton, as usual great candids from the market! The "stripes" are a neat subject, cool how the 105/2.5 renders the background here.

Scott, very nice and kind of "eased" composition on your falls-shot. I like this - sometimes it is great fun to over-accentuate subjects like this (ultrawide-lens or fisheye), but a more conservative framing will never lose it's charm.

Buddy, I really like the way how you've captured the fall in Germany. A truly beautiful set!

Weasel_Loader - great to see you're enjoying the 20/2.8! Nice car-shots!

Sorry, I've missed some great posts ;-/

Thank you Scott, Steve, georg and Leighton. For your comments
Rafael the photos of the little girl are priceless
Steve great shots from manchester. The lighted bear really shows the DR of the D700

Nice rock and roll series Georg. I like the flare too.

Thank you for the comment on the waterfall image.

shot on film, 29 years ago - a 17 frame panorama brought to life just now by CS6

Nikkormat EL, 50mm f/1.8 AIS, handheld,


360 degree view from Monte Rotondo on the island of Corsica at sunset

bigger version here - scrolls across the screen.
Original is over 52,000 pixels wide and 5000+ tall.

If you want to "grain peak", this is a 25,000 wide version (25mb jpeg)

Doing some content aware fill along the edges yesterday, I maxxed out my 12GB RAM for the first time. Guess I need to buy more :-)

I think my 45 has to go in for service, I have a feeling something is out of alignment or something. I have problems getting sharp results, even when stopped down, especially when tilt and/or shift is applied.

Here are two that came out ok, one fairly wide and one stopped down.

Anton I don't own a tilt shift but I do know that it is a totally different style of lens. In most of the examples I have seen when shifted more of the photo is out of focus than is in focus, I have listed a flickr page that shows examples of the use of the tilt-shift. I hope this helps

I am aware how it works, but I feel I got sharper results before.

Georg - thanks and excellent band shots

Chin - very good image of the gorge

Bird - the Vigeland image is great - not sure about the 2nd one. Love that park and had a great time there in 1971.
