Georg, your year later version of the church was superb (the older one being the one with the swirling snow, which was really memorable too). And the farmland is very scenic, even if it has been repurposed. At least the looks are preserved. The use of the 85 PC tilt for the cannon is very nicely done.
Ray (FL), I have gone back and looked at the 35 1.4 pic of the people on the bridge and the reflections in the water several times, its worth revisiting!
Leighton, the train depot was very well done!! And that pic of the newbornd lamb in Barbara's is quite a touching moment captured!
Chin, the pic of the guy with his P&S clamshell phone and his reflection in the shiny cruise train is excellent! Thanks for the history behind the train. And very interesting story about your dad.
Larry, beautiful cat and superb lens to take that pic with! For those folks here interested in the history of Nikon's 105mm lens, there's 26 variants of that lens since 1959, each one of them outstanding:
Andy, your macros have become one of the regular pleasures to view on this thread, keep them coming!
Jay, great light on that door, that will endear you to Leighton. And I love that post and the background!
Kevin, I might be delving into film after resisting for so long. Will be interested in what you find. Camera stores here are a rarity now, will have to get to one or look on the web.
Dan, very nice portraits of your nieces. Great lighting with the Alien Bees.
Ronny, I agree with Andy on the green dot, it works just about as well as AF on the D800, only slower A few weeks ago there was a thread going on about how to do manual focus and several people using the D800/E seemed to not have good luck with it. I am not sure my eyes with the corrective glasses can see the resolution enough through the viewfinder in most cases to do better than the green confirmation dot. For the AI and older lenses which have longer focus ring throws, the dot can stay on for a bit of the turn of the ring and one has to make sure to shoot when you are somewhere in the middle, not near one or the other end of the arc where the dot is solid. Hope that last sentence made sense. The dot doesn't show up (get blinking arrows) when there is low light or low contrast, but in those situations AF isn't going to work so well either.
Buddy, good to see you back here, nice pics with the 55 1.2.
Nick, great image with the 43-86 zoom. I have only seen it in the ad for the Df.
Philippe, great catch of the Gates of Hell!
Larry, loved the spoon with the 55 micro.
Peter (Knysna), tremendous burst of color in that pic of the bottle brush flower!
Ken, good reminder of airboat ride for me too. Still have a couple years old pic of an egret taking off, on the wall in front of me. As the airboat neared, it must have disturbed the egret and the 70-300VR was handy to take that pic.
