Ray, very nice work on the night-shot! It looks really smooth considering the high ISO-setting. The 35/1.4 does show some nice "stars" even at f/2.8 - many other lenses need to be stopped down much more to get the same effect.
Btw, shooting a series of local churches is always a nice exercise - very challenging and rewarding at the same time.

Ray, Chin and Jeff - thanks for your comments!

Thanks, Leighton!
While burning some gas in my neighborhood I came across this view. It's a typical landscape over here, much less mountainous than your hood. Most of the small farms are no real farms anymore, more like a mixture between family homes and small business buildings.

The light was kinda special this afternoon - D700, PC 85/2.8D


Too bad about the farms. I have a bumper sticker on my vehicle that says "No Farms No Food". I think that about says it all.

I really loved using the D600 at night. It shines at the higher ISO's Here's one using the 35mm 1.4 at 2.8 and ISO 6400

Thanks for the comment Ray.

I love the perspective of your image. The D600 amazes me as well with it's ISO performance. Here's one I took the other day at ISO 9051.

Leighton, I like the first better. Is the depot still in use?


Yes, but not to the extent it once was. Amtrak stops there occasionally.

Trains trains trains
Oddly most still carry clamshell-styled phones eschewing the new-gen wide candybar smartphones
Dark maroon and gold trimmings do make for a uniquely luxurious look
Kinda took advantage of the chaos

Leighton, I really like the "depth" of your latest depot-image. Very nice B&W too

Chin, very nice shot of the smartphone-photographer! Dark maroon and gold are a nice contrast to his jacket.

Chin, nice story and images of the luxury train. I am surprised the logo is in English.

Georg, great trains and churches. You are rocking! The farmland shot is very nice.

Don, another great book cover image. Very moody.

Leighton, I like the first station shot. Amtrak does not use that line much anymore. Many years ago it was the passenger main for the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad. EDIT: After I posted this, you had put up another image from the station platform. Very very nice!

Ray, very nice work with the high ISO.

Thank you Chin I had to look back at my setting and I did add a little noise reduction in that photo in the color and contrast. I really like the photo of the guy taking a photo
Thanks Leighton I think we both made the right decision in choosing the D600
Georg I really like the lighting as well as the grain
Thank you Scott

Had a weekend away for my birthday, 3 nights in a lodge in the rainforest.

Here are some macros - d800e, 105/2.8 ais micro + PN-11 to get to 1:1. Some cropping involved, sometimes a lot of cropping involved as some of these are tiny insects ie 2mm long !

+1. I've decided I'll ignore the Df, D800E, etc, for the foreseeable future, until something critical dies in the D700. I'm only at ~40k shutter clicks, so statistically speaking, I have a long way to go.

Some shots from the barn this morning. We went to do chores this morning and there in the middle of the barn was the first lamb of the season. It's always nice when you go to the barn and they're already standing and cleaned off with a full belly.

The iodine on Barbara's hand is from dipping the lamb's umbilical cord. We do this to help dry it up fast so it doesn't get infected.

Just a ewe wondering what's going on. I love the look from this lens at f2.

Lovely train, night shots, and animals! Not much along those lines here, but we do have doors!
D800 45PC-E @ f/5.6





I like the way the sun gets into places normally in shadow this time of year.
