Georg - Thanks for your thoughts on the 85/2. Your moored ship is outstanding!

Reagan - Congrats on the D7100! Some of those boats are bigger than my house!

Rafael - The portrait with the 85/2 is excellent. Between you and Georg, you're making it very hard to resist.

Lucky enough to catch a Cicada emerging last week next to the pool.

We often find the casings on trees but I've never seen one emerging. They cast off the older exoskeleton to allow themselves to grow. The way the wings "appear" from little stumps is amazing.

This isn't the most attractive type, hopefully I might catch one of the bigger green and orange ones next time - I plan to do a timelapse video next time.

Andy, magnificent metamorphosis set!!!

Reagan, nice shots from a lovely place
Georg, great compo and PP
Andy, nice set especially the b/w pictures
Rafael, supeb colors(#4&5), #2 has a fantastic rendering (almost Leica look), great work with this old lens.

To my horror, my fingers just went for the ring and tried to focus the 14-24mm manually today
I'm so so rusty, and the combo just felt so heavy

Am going for one of John's specialties ... monitor-busters!
Waited for the 8pm lightshow at the casino in the horizon but only saw one burst of light, and nothing after. Sigh disappointed
Staked out at the secret staircase landing, top floor of the building for a clandestine photo ops... then the urge for a number two strikes
We did scare the lights out of each other in that dark corner - bunch of smokers, janitor and a young couple (pretty sure it was a dead end after my turn but they went up...)

Wow Chin, very nice stitched nightscape!

Coming back from another field trip for my work, this time in the resting times I experimented the humble 75-150mm f/3.5 E with tubes.
At 150mm we have a good working distance, both for providing light and to avoid stress shy bugs.

Funny thing is that in the eighties when launched these E lenses were heavily criticized by their poor construction; today most af-s G lenses are poorer constructed than the E lenses...

Great macro of the spider. And super use of the humble Series E zoom with the PN-11

Georg amazing use of the 16mm 3.5 -perfect!
Rafael I love the bird of paradise and the blacksmith shop is my favorite
Chuong you are getting really good with that 600mm

I went to my local camera store yesterday and they had a Nikkor 58mm 1.2 in beautiful condition, albeit NOT FOR SALE! Not that i could have afforded it
He did let me try it out in the store and here are a couple of shots

Ray, I was at my local camera store yesterday too, quite a coincidence. Although not looking for lenses anymore! That bokeh from the Noct you tried is so delicious.

And I really need to have the long downtime to go through the last several pages, looks like I am missing quite a bit.

Georg, you did that same image with the 28mm PC which I loved for the perspective you created. Terrific job again, this time wtih your 16 fish.

Rafael, loved that set of things in the past.

Not taken with film, but with the D800 + 10.5cm f2.5P. One of the earliest versions of the lens, probably a 1960 production.

Happy weekend everyone. Some great shots this past week.

Jose, enjoyed your macros, especially the silk orb-weaver.

Chin, "backpedal" is a very cool shot. Really nice composition and use of dof.

Scott, great winter images. Really like the white fence and the old barn landscape.

Ray, very nice, and peaceful, dock shots. Your new assistant, Georg, seems to have some good advice.

Steve, gorgeous alpenglow pano.

Ken, love the "no dogs at bar after 5pm" sign. Very nice FLW set.

Andy, very cool Cicada shots.

Ray, beautiful winter sunset.

Leighton, the icy window and smoke in the valley were both really well seen. Well done!

Jay, very cool "Cajun smokes" shot.

Peter, very nice work with the 500mm reflex.

Don, great work. I especially liked the rainy night scene with the subtle stars around the lights.

Georg, beautiful fishing scene. Love the "stuff." Very nice shots with the 85/2.

Jim, very interesting hanging ice drops.

Rafael, love the "cactus gate" and the sets from Dana Point and Escondido.

Sebastian, beautiful blue bezel.

John, did one of the girls get a shot of your nails? Enjoy the game!

Chuong, love the big blue heron.

Reagan, congrats on the new camera. Nice boats, "at last" is my favorite.

Samy, my daughter would love "Beadazzled." Did you have to bring up the Noct? I've been trying to get that lens out of my mind.

Some really amazing images in the 4 or 5 pages since I last posted. The night pano by Chin, Leighton's landscape, Rafael's images from the past, George's 85 1.2,Reagan's yachts, Jose's arachnoid (!!), and today's fare by Samy are all great.

If I've left anyone out - sorry but the list above is from memory!

Peter, that's a really nice set with your 500 Reflex! I like especially the last two shots - beautiful close-ups!

Samy, nice Baltimore-street-detail (love the complete absence of distortion)! Love the 10.5cm/2.5P's very natural bokeh. Do you shoot film from time to time?

Ray, I hope you didn't enjoy playing/shooting with the Noct all too much ;-)

Jose, the orb-weaver is wonderfully captured! Your fine shot is quite an advertisement for the 75-150 Series E!

Chin, very, very cool monitor-buster! Did you stitch left-right shifted shots or did you turn the camera?

Rafael, I really like your portrait with the 85/2.0 Ais. The fake-town-set is fantastic, love especially "Herb". The rendering of your 5.8cm/1.4 really floats my boat ;-)

Chuong Amazing that you can hand hold such a monster and get a bird in flight!

Georg Great shot!!!

Rafael Nice set commemorating your area's past. My town is just like that!

Reagan Nice shots of a warm place and the water around the small boat is sweet.

Chin There's a lot to see, very nice monitor buster. Looks all shiny and new.

Jose The level of detail is amazing showing leg 'hair'! Is the head to the right?

Ray I love the bokeh, its the best kind. Those golden Nikon boxes add just the right rich element.

Samy Nice colors in Bedazzled, the image really jumps on my screen.

Peter I enjoy seeing the warm beach scene.

Thanks for your kind comments on my recent shots!

Here's another fisheye-image, took this one today in pouring rain. I was rushing some shots and think the composition could be better (maybe this subject would look better if shot with a "regular" ultra-wide like the AF-S 14-24).

16/3.5 Ai at f/8, frontlens almost touched the wet stone
