Thanks, John... It was nice to have a bit of sun and get out and shoot a little today!


Yes - nice that it didn't rain all day. I shot some images, but they were test images with the 200/4 AIS Macro and the 28/2 Zeiss down at Glazers.

A quick snap of the hill I can see from where I sit with the laptop, saw this, grabbed it. The Monsoon has arrived !
Using the 180/2.8 wide open. Love it when the rainforest steams !

Don, your ongoing series is a joy to look at. Just like Leighton I like the motion-blur on the shot with the 24/2. Are all portraits of the hat-wearing man selfies?


Yes, the character with the hat on is me. I just started doing these selfies recently and it's turned out to be a lot of fun!

On tripod but I think it's still a bit off. Too cold to continue so this is the best I could get with no cropping.
I am not sure what that bright spot on the left is.


Nice moon shot!. The white spot is sunrise on the crater Herodotus.

Samy, I really like your recent shots with the PC 28/3.5 - you have got the knack of mastering this very special lens!

Ken, the wheelchair-BB-game I've shot was probably a lower-league-game than your game, but the effort was the same. Congrats to your new 85/2.0 Ais!

Larry, the Galveston-lovers-shot is nicely captured. Beautiful light and great subject!

Eric, very cool helmet!

Chuong, nice moon-shot - your 600/5.6+TC+TC-combo must be quite a challenge for your tripod.

Subidiom, welcome to this wonderful thread! Love the generous framing on your sailboat-shot and the silver-like water.

Andy, the steaming rain-forest looks great on your shot.


Thanks for the comments on my father's bike and the "wild bokeh shot"!

Jeff The colors really work in that Torry Pines Twilight shot.

Ken Great shots from a difficult lighting situation.

Rafael Agree, Tucson is in the opposite situation, developers are trying to capitalize by building a new version of the past.

Leighton I especially like the 1st sky, beautiful series.

Jose That grasshopper has such interesting detail, great resluts from that E lens!

Don The lighting and toning are dramatic.

Georg Great shot of that old timer! I always liked torque in a street ride, you don't have to work so hard.

Samy The Grainery is so silvery and detailed.
Park Avenue and Fayette Street What a strange building, looks like some neighbors went missing. It certainly looms over the street.

Andy, the monsoon shot is beautiful. I like how you've left the green muted, that's the way I remember things looking in those conditions.

Georg, "Dad's Simson Suhl" is so well done, I like the way the bike is against the snow, but yet the OOF birck is just above it to provide a background with some detail.

Samy, continuing to enjoy your Baltimore series. Technically, you are making a great case for the MF nikkors with your technique and post-processing.

Leighton, the sunset clouds are cool. Has those last night around here, I was too lazy to leave the house to find an interesting foreground :-(

Pleasure Pier is a great success of a photo, Larry. I agree with Samy, this is one of those photos where content and moment take precedence over sharpness. I can understand the editor's position though, but a great capture nonetheless.

And a welcome to the new names I don't remeber coming across before, Larry, tzic, and subidiom.

Was kinda creepy to step in here at first
The cheezy door chime sounded but no one was around
An overcrowded aquarium, dark with driftwood and algae, lined the entrance
A dog was barking out of sight
The room dim, the fluorescent light tube seeming thrumming, though the electric hum of refrigerators should be the keen suspect
My friend recommended this - a butcher operating out of a nondescript traditional Japanese house in the outskirts

I didn't quite have the guts to take a photo of the taciturn man when he started slicing that marbled wagyu
Nor when he took a bit off the smoked duck and offered us a try ... off his knife!

Wow ..... I certainly have got some catching up to do ......

I will have to be using the like button again .... so many good pix ....

Well done everyone for continuing to inspire me.

I've just run a weekend event for Leica M users and those interested in the S system ...

I broke all the conventions by running around with My D4 and manual lenses ... got to show them this is another way !!

The weather was cold but perfect.

Thanks to everyone for comments on my 500mm shots.

Georg - love the town square with the 16mm. The gabled buildings remind one of Amsterdam but I guess they were all over Germany also.

Andy - great pics of the yacht. Good to see how the other 0.0000001% lives!

Jeff - the pelicans and Torrey Pines are spectacular. What colours!

Ken - terrific action shots. Amazing what people can accomplish against the odds.

Rick - awesome ice. Both of us are looking forward to the Canadian summer

The helmet shots could be from an ad. Well done.

Rafael - the San Diego farm shots are very good indeed.

James - welcome to "our" community. A lovely start. From your profile I see you have a collection of venerable Nikkors and I look forward to seeing more.

Andy - the rainforest image is gorgeous.

Chin - if you'd complained you'd have been "Chopped" ( food channel )

Leighton - lovely skies!!

Don - you have to go out in daylight sometime! We're beginning to wonder about your nocturnal wanderings. Great as usual. Later: I see you are the man in the hat! You rascal, you.

Scott - two terrific conversions!

Chuong - Yes! Yes! Yes! Enjoy the 500

Samy - for some reason I can only get two images from your latest series - the tree and the school. I'll look them up on flickr. The pics on Fayette look a bit odd to me ( diverging verticals) but the Baltimore St and Hopkins place pics are first rate and great use of the lens.

Georg - nice bike! Looks like a 1950's edition.

Larry - nice wheels - in both photos

Steve - a terrific group of pictures. I'm a bit worried about your 28mm though - very unusual distortion. Did you try to fix it in post?

Ian - an excellent image but a Nikkor "Petzval"?

Andy Love the fog through the trees - great eye!
Chin I would have loved to see the knife ala duck great shot!
Steve my choice is the second Lake Windermere from Adelaide Hill - simply beautiful!

Thanks for the comments, incidentally, that hill is known to locals as Taipan Hill ! (one of the most poisonous snakes in the world)

I'll comment on the images from this page and like the previous.

Great shot Chin

Steve - 13 Leica users ? A Fixation ? Love the Lake District shots but why isn't it raining
Did you do the waterfall shot handheld ? looks soft and the water is blown. Tripod and blend of 2 shots is the go for me there.

Nice work Peter, I spent time in the Botanic Gardens again yesterday.

I have no idea what a Petzval is Ian but nice retro portrait.

Rick - awesome ice. Both of us are looking forward to the Canadian summer

The helmet shots could be from an ad. Well done.

Ok, first of all I want to make it clear to everybody my name is Eric not Rick!!

Yeah, can't wait for the summer, oh beautiful beast waiting for me!!

I decide to use my backdrop for the helmet shot. I will use it for my bike pictures this summer. It makes me realize my lack of lighting gear. I have 3 flash but they are not powerful enought!! I would need a nice stronger flash for main light(einstein 640) with softbox. I don't do enought flash work but it could be something to consider adding in my arsenal!! I do love my pocket wizard tt5-tt1!! Flash fired everytime and it doesn't have to be in line of sight(RF vs IR nikon cls) It give you more freedom for using light modifier or for outside use.

Pete, I don't think you are a heavy drinker, your beer glass always seem to stay at the same level!!
