Gates of Hell2 is very impressive Steve, I have a feeling that maybe what Georg was thinking about. I also like the diagonal lines on the street cutting across the shadows of the grill.

Hey Goerg .... Love the memorial grab shot ... wonderful architecture!!

As for the Gates of Hell shot ... I hear what you say ...

Was down there again last night and shot it from a different perspective.

Problem is the light shining through is catching in the frame from the left ... so

I shot it slightly differently.

See what you think.

I really like the simplicity of this Leighton

Bold colours and such a simple subject too ....

Looks like Gus is going to be a regular feature too ....

One more of morning glories, with the 105 f4 T, taken at f/8. No extension tube used, this lens focuses closer than all other Nikon 105mm versions.

Just acquired a 100-300mm f5.6 zoom

And I was expecting it to be a real compromise, and somewhat soft in image.

So surprised to get a mint lens with hood and Nikon leather case (original) all in gorgeous condition for peanuts price.

Anyway went out on the Square yesterday and there for my delight was more musicians.

Buddy the One Man Band was taken at about 200mm f5.6

Colin our window cleaner was shot at 300mm

See what you think.

The Manchester one mad band is great Steve!

Here's a deeper look inside the morning glory, with the 13.5cm 3.5Q, with PK-11A extension tube, at f/5.6.

I have had that lens for a while now. It was one of the first manual lense that I bought. It does not disappoint when it come to sharpness wide open up to 200 and really sharp at F8 up to 300mm It does exhibit a little CA in high contrast scenes but easily fixable in LR. Over all Steve the lens is a real bargain. Often selling for around $100 here in the states. Mine came in mint condition with the original box and all of the original sales receipts
The only disappointment I have in the lens is the lack of a tripod mount. It was never a problem before but now I use my tripod regularly.

My wife thinks I'm such a snob
Eschewing the oft-taken for the ones with a high artistic value
Whatever that may be
Sometimes I forget I'm a tourist, seen before, done before
Oddly, this thread reminds me to be one
A certain obligation to show you my corner of the world

I looked at the gateway, numbed by the heat, not knowing what to do
Until from the corner of my eye I spotted this trishaw coming towards me
I turned the dials hastily, as fast as I could
He moved extraordinarily quicker than I thought he should have, would have
Brace, an embarrassing half crouch half standing stance
Flattened myself against the wall, oh no 35mm
Looked through the viewfinder and simply pressed the button

Just a couple more from the 100-300mm

ISO800 @ f5.6

The first of a 16 year old who loves film and shoots Nikon Mf and Leica M2

Gaining experience of Leica in our store

He is going to be a really great photographer as he develops - Meet Louis hand held at 1/20th

Then we have a stall holder offering us the staff of life but about to eat a sandwich which is not of their making ... I no wonder she has a shocked expression - Hand held at 1/50th

Followed by a couple of the produce on the bread stall - and one from the chutneys stall

All taken with the 100-300 @ f5.6

institut of anatomy, D700 and 24/2 Ai - a "centered view" would be more pleasing, maybe I re-shoot this one with the 28/3.5PC


Love the perfect framing in this one Georg

Haha thanks!
In what she says happens too often, and I vehemently deny:
Someone (sometimes her) suggests
I walk up, look through the viewfinder, pivot here and there
Then walk away shaking my head because it just doesn't seem right
Technicals, composition, exposure, objects in the wrong way
I guess it does seem rather patronising for the uninitiated... heh
It's even more awkward when I walk away, then some time after she asks me how that shot turned out... *cough cough*

Best scenario, she's out doing her hair and I wander around with the camera
Like for this...

Congrats on the lens Steve, I really like the expression on this guy. I was going to tell you that Ray had this lens, but he beat me to it.

Seems we have been having a few city shots recently

So I thought I would join in.

Taken on the 28mm f3.5 ISO200 @ 1/20th

The River Irwell forms the border between the City of Manchester and City of Salford

Evening scene on the way to get the car for the journey home.

Or perhaps a busy watering hole at the end of a work day in Manchester UK

Sinclairs certainly gets busy and that spills on to the outdoor pave area when it's warm outside.

Lots of cool stuff from Manchester and Kaula Lumpur on this page. That luxury mall was a very nice image Chin. And Steve, enjoyed the river runs through it and the watering hole spilling out!

Steve, looked like an unusually nice day in Manchester (watched one of those games that you avoid ) today.

Last of the morning glories, this is with the 105 f4 T, taken at f/5.6.
