Mitch are these photos really cropped a lot?


Ray,
Thank you. They are 100% crop JPEG. Another thing I didn't notice until you asked is that I had the aspect ratio set for 16 x 20 canvas from a previous processing. I imagine they do look bad on a decent screen. This is only the second time Ive posted on the WEB. Not making excuses.
I need a new laptop and to pay closer attention to detail.

Mitch, those little birds are tough. Good try with the 200 f4, you may need to bump up the shutter speed even higher for those unstable critters.


Samy
Thank you, these are country birds. Can't get nonchalantly closer then 30ft to them and theyre only 5 inches long beak to tail. The 200 f4 was not the best tool, but it's a lot lighter than the AFS 300 f4. I was just setting on the front porch having fun.

Interesting shadow of the rail. Nice capture.

Jay
Me too. I apologize for the resolution.

Loved the photos, especially the birds. Are those some species of jay. No pun intended. They look simular to our Blue Jay.

The 135Q is a tough one, but it can be done. I have quite a few shots with it, love it on tubes.

I like it so much that it is one of the lenses I kept to use on the Fuji XE1 with an adapter.


Very nice picture. You and that lens seem to get along really well

Im slowly starting to think that I just happen to own a bad copy of the lens. Since they are not at all expensive I might pick up another one to see how I fare with that. Or I might just skip it on dSLR and pick up one of the rangefinder 135 f3,5 Q.S Nikkors

Thank you so much for your complements.

The 16mm shot is a couple of Stellar Jays that I presume are relatives of the eastern and western Blue Jay since their behavior is similar. They appear in groups and have a particularly raspy call, sounding like loud burst of static.

Oosty You are right on target, I have always liked the stars, and I'm pretty raspy at times.

Scott Good eye with the fishing shot!

Rafael Looks like cheesecake sitting on cheesecake! Wonder what that will look like in a few years...

Been too busy digitizing old slides and negs before they deteriorate too much, and I can't post any of those here (Canon AF mostly...)

So instead I will just dig up two with the 55mm f/1.2 from earlier this summer. I'm pretty sure these were not posted here before

at f/5.6

This is looking South across the little valley from the farm. The little village of Middlebrook is just out of sight at the bottom of the image. Taken with the 180.

Thanks for all your friendly comments re my humble shots. I find it very hard to remember your real names - do you still keep a list of user-names and first names, Leighton? I would appreciate a copy.

The Nikkor 35/1.4 is one of my favorite lenses. Here is a snapshot portrait of a good friend of mine, a self-made ornithologist living in the village. @f/1.4.

Petur, lovely portrait, love the conversion. I do have a list, but it needs updating. As soon as I can, I'll post it for all to have.

Thanks Leighton. I'm too old to remember all the names, but the tradition to use first names adds to the community feeling on this great thread.

Petur, many of us have our names in our profiles. If you hover your mouse over the profile button, it should display.

I love those Stellar Jays - Jay

Great capture on that tattoo Raphael - it's of it's time and very artistic, I wonder how well that will wear

Subtle on the fishing theme there Samy ...

Interesting end of season tomatoes there Petur

I'm alive Leighton... By God's grace I had two surgeries this past summer including as you may remember a hip replacement. Everything is well now but these things were changing a lot my life so nothing is like before. In the meantime I won a competition in Romania about Sigma lenses and the prize was a Sigma DP2 Merill. That's an unbelievable good camera for landscape, product photography but it's a tool that slows you down more than MF Nikkors and use a very poor battery. I never had in my hand something to produce so sharp and pleasant images... Everytime I use it I think at our friend John from Seattle. For his hiking adventures an investment in the three Sigma DP1 - DP2 - DP3 Merill could be more productive than anything else.

Apart of that I'm still looking at what great images are you producing here on this amazing thread but my limited time with MF Nikkors lately was an obstacle to contribute anymore... and due to my medical situation I failed to follow the thread for about 300 pages... Shame on me!

Keep doing the great job guys and be sure that someone in Dracula's land is watching you carefully! Maybe one day you'll see again some pictures from my part of the world.

BTW In the ol' good times I had a friend on this thread named Curtis... Is anyone remembering him?

Glad to hear you are on the mend. I do so miss your photos. Hope to see you back in action soon!
