Jose and Rafael, here's the 20 UD and the 35 1.4 N with the Nikon FG.

That's what I mean about too many lenses, I had to go looking for them Don't want to imagine how that would work with that many children

Agreed! For not using that lens much, Peter nailed that image!! And of course the processing too.

Hakan, superb images from Casablanca and Istanbul. Very nice to see scenes from the region.

I like the framing of the first and the third photo, very well done!

Leighton, Samy - thanks. I agree that Georg is an expert but it was Samy who reminded me that I have this lens. That and the search for sharper images

Samy, I really like how you've nailed exposure and colors on the stained window. Mixing different light-sources is not easy and your fine image is really well done. Don't worry about the unstraight lines - in some old churches over here you'll never find a single straight line and no square angle too Now this can make grown photographers cry while trying to get a clean and straight composition
Nice image again of your FG - hope we'll see some flim-shots out of it later…

Hakan, I like especially the last two shots from your latest set. The centered photographer in front of the museum works great on this fine image. The arch on the last shot is calling for a night-shot like out of Philippe's or Don's hands…

Chin, love the cold-metal-look of your escalator-image!

John, very nice and atmospheric ferry-shot! I like the mood a lot. Btw, I've found it's much harder to work with very low contrast moderate-ISO-files than with more contrasty high-ISO-NEF's.

Peter, very nice take on the "Thesen-House"! I like your processing a lot - the textured background works extremely well for this subject. The composition is very nice too - if I'm in nitpicking mode I would say the leaves shouldn't touch the "anchor", but that's just carping ;-)
Btw, 3 wives? Your pres must be a brave man


Hakan, Subidiom, Samy, Leighton and Andy - thanks for your comments on the "Ark"!

Thanks Georg. Not any time soon. I will see if I can get the film in for development today (I have to look up how to pull it out of the FG first! But this one will be door knobs and magazines and magazine covers, just to check how I am doing with focus, exposure etc.

As to the 3 wives and bravery, I missed that, very excellent point!!

I just love you recent posts with the 85/2 lately - really great rendering - artful composition doesn't hurt either!

You've really got me thinking about trying to pick one of these up, but they're surprisingly pricy for a 'slow' 85! I guess you do get what you pay for...


Thanks - I was never really interested in this lens, but my recent search for Nikkor's with cinematic flare- and ghosting-qualities reminded me of an UK-based ebay-seller who offered a dozen or so really beaten up 85/2's for low prices (former newspaper-lenses). His offers were gone, but I've found a fairly clean copy for 99 Euros and didn't hesitate ;-)
It's a small and very well handling lens, a good to very good performer. Longitudinal CA's (bokeh-fringing) in high-contrast-scenes could be better controlled, but no 85mm-Nikkor is really trouble-free in this regard (to my knowledge). The heptagonal Out-of-Focus-highlights can be an issue for some users, but common among older Nikkor's.

Chin, fantastic escalator!

John, the cruise ship and the scenery is beautiful.

Chin - a special request: a while ago you've mentioned a book as source for inspiration. Couldn't find your post - could you please repeat it's title and author?
The weather here is so un-inspiring that picking up a good book seem's to be a good idea ;-)

I don't know about Chin's book, but I love the work of Richard W. Brown. His book entitled "Pictures from the Country" always inspires me.

Did I recommend a photography book? Dave duChemin perhaps, that's the one I go for before trips

Thanks guys for the comments.
The octopus was one of the best I've had. The cook in me always wonders how stuff's made. I know some cultures discard octopus because they have a tendency to turn out hard, rubbery and tasteless. I've had some excellent stuff in Japan - dish made with only giant oversized suckers. Even had one which was made solely with pickled octopus beaks (minus the hard 'shell'). Till date I don't know how they removed that and left the muscle behind.

I'm trying (still good though I've wanted to stray at times) to keep to a style of processing for the entire trip
I've never considered b&w though, might experiment with it later. This was the image I had in my mind when I took the escalator for the first time - the signs on the ground were striking enough to catch my eye

As I was rationalising my fridge stock of film today I came across a very old friend .........

Who remembers with fondness this wonderful box of images??

Sadly I fear there is no one who can process this properly now ....

But it brought back many memories.

Relive those Kodak Moments

I hope you'll enjoy the book as much as I did. In fact, I'm reading it for the fifth time right now!

I love the work of Leiter and Haas, talk about inspiration.

Just a shame you couldn't get nearer and get a clearer shot of the train ...

Nice lighting though in a darkish place.
