Thanks everyone for your comments on my boy's image. He was just standing there looking over the bay. Here is another one from the back yard with the 600mm f5.6. I heard that it's best to shoot this lens wide open and looks like it's actually its sweet spot. I came too close to the bird so I missed the legs

Thanks for the kind comments on the "Gold Water" shot.

Leighton, really nice work in the barn with the 50/1.2.

Jay, very cool fence shot with your 85/1.4.

Chin, the door and train shot is super interesting. Great find.

Ray, very nice tonal range in the cactus image.

Samy, more great church shots. I enjoyed the story and photo of the Eutaw Place Temple.

Andy, beautiful macros, and the old gas pump shots are outstanding.

Georg, the "free-style" fireworks shot is impressive. I love the b&w New Year's Eve photo.

Dan, really nice portrait of the girls.

Buddy, I really like the post and barb wire shot.

Welcome, Nick! Very nice watch shot.

Philippe, great contrast in "gates of hell."

Larry, nice peas. I had mine.

Peter, love the bottle brush.

Welcome, Ken! Very cool gator and bison shots.

Philip, I really like the look of the b&w bridge.

Scott, "Life is Good" and the winter doors are wonderful photos.

Chuong, very nice work with the 20/3.5.

Jose, terrific fireworks. Love the long, subtle trails in the first shot.

Just thought I'd share this even though the lens itself precludes me from posting images here.

Having just received a mint 80-200/2.8AF ED from a member here (for portrait/weddings) I was getting frustrated at the 6ft MFD (mag - 1/7.1 0.14x to 1/5.9 0.17x) so stuck on my PN-11 for a laugh.

So I now have a manually focussing zoom with mag - 0.8x @ 80mm and MFD of 322mm and a 0.4x @ 200mm and MFD of 948mm !!!

Who would have thought ?

I was forced into this by the fact that the AF lens arrived before the 180/2.8 and 135/2.8 I am waiting for

Thanks to fedex great online tracking service I know that the 180 left Hawaii yesterday having gone from Hebron,Kentucky to Erlanger, KY to Memphis,TN to Honolulu, Hi.

It was freezing today about -35 degree celcius but that didn't stop me from taking a few pictures with my 50 1.2

Thanks everyone for the comments on the Bottlebrush and Elgar.

Jeff - the 16 3.5 really suits your style. Now for a couple of giant ND filters (if they can fit that lens) (they'll probably cost as much as the lens!)

Rick - please don't show ice! It's summer here and we're dealing with 30-32*C at the moment and loving it!

Chuong - good effort with the Big 600

Jose - nice shot from your balcony

Chin - didn't you realise that "rabbit cuddling" is right up there with "tree hugging"? Nice shot indeed

Andy - nice images of the bowser. The outback is a lot like our "platteland" (Afrikaans for "the sticks")

Scott - beautiful snowy shots - I can live with snow

Georg - that is the definitive fireworks shot for 2014!

Ken - stay out of the water! Good series

Phillippe - are those flames or flamingos? Well seen and captured.

Samy - your latest Baltimore series is terrific. Great vantage points and comps.

Leighton - I missed the image Ray put up again - just beautiful.

Congrats on the purchase of that 80-200 lens. Itīs by far my favorite AF lens and spends about as much time on my camera as my 55 f1,2 S.C which I would marry if it was a woman instead of a lens.

Did you get the push/pull version or the later two ring design? For weddings picking up the 2nd incarnation (redesign) of the push/pull version would save a few $ and itīs a very convenient lens to use. Only downside and the reason why I returned mine was the slower AF.

Rick and Jeff - now that's a juxtaposition on top of this page!
Love your Quebec-shots, Rick! Well done, cranking that focus-ring at -35°C is something I just can't imagine ;-)
Jeff, the light on your sunset is wonderful. I really like the gently curved horizon.

Samy, wow, you've nailed the exposure on the stained glass window! Your fine shot looks like I'm standing right in front of it. Very nice subject and capture!

Chuong, perfect timing on your bird-shot! Sorry about coming too close ;-) It's probably a matter of practice to master the really long Nikkor's. I'm sure you'll be there soon.

Thanks folks.

Very off topic, but looking into the history of Baltimore has been interesting. The German roots seem to be related to migrations from Germany during the War of the Sixth Coalition (1812) and the Revolutions of the 1848 (mid 19th century European spring?). That may explain the timeline of some of the churches being founded in mid 19th century. Baltimore was the second most popular port of entry after Ellis Island.

The immigrants set up a German language paper, Baltimore Wecker, which folded after its building was destroyed in 1861 during pro-confederate riots.

Heh Jeff I don't think the sand pipers knew they were in the shot!

Three shots blended to keep the highlights in check
I realise this is a common feature too - covered street malls.
The architecture is so similar regardless of city/town
