Thanks Leighton. Yeah...I was surprised and also was hoping for a fight in the sky. Didn't happen but happy to capture both of them.

Chuong, very nice catch: eagle und vulture together!

Chin, very cool shot of walking business-men walking in their habitat ;-)

Chris, nice to see you posting here again! Love the color-mix of your bridge-shot - very effective!

Jose, I hope you'll have a nice field-trip! The focus-stacking-image is really crisp, a very good example of this technique.

Chin and Jeff - thanks for your kind comments!

Here are two shots, taken today, the last day at the local Christmas-fair.
This one would benefit from some more care regarding the framing, a walking-through walker would have been a nice addition too:

D700, 24/2Ai at f/4


Like the contrast (in every possible meaning), the framing could have been better
D700+24/2 Ai too, f/8 and 1/6 sec, handheld

Georg, love the second one. What would it look like to crop the lady out?

Don't crop that woman out. To me, she looks like Dame Judy Dench from that angle. Love the angst on the man's face in conjunction with the angel with the violin over his shoulder.

Hi Laura, good to see you again. Perhaps a young Judy Dench.

Biohazard, Leighton and Laura - thanks for your comments! I've thought about cropping the lady out, but feared it would ruin the balance of this shot. Don't like the cross-shaped lamp-post between ĄDame Judy Dench" and the buildings.
Btw, I've shot a few more, more distant frames earlier until I realized the carney's expression and tried to get a closer shot.

One of the many reasons I like that image so well is due to the excellent framing/composition, including the lady! I fear there would be too much negative space, upsetting the balance and leading lines of the image without her there.

Hi Leighton! It's been a rough semester for me for sure, haven't really used any of my MF glass at all, too busy trying to keep ahead of the game. I have a couple weeks off, then back to the craziness again. Sadly, I lost Felix on the 8th of November, all of a sudden he couldn't walk any more, turned out he had developed diabetes, and then started having seizures one night. Took him to the emergency vets, and the seizures finally stopped, but his body temp dropped 7 degrees (F) in an hour, and they couldn't get him stabilized, and they couldn't figure out why. I came to the decision that it was time to let him go so that he could be pain free and walk again. Told him to go find my husband and keep him company till I get there.

Biohazard, to be honest: don't know about the focus-point Looking at the full-size image it seems to be a bit behind the carney. Focusing the 24/2 Ai (this Ai-lens has a very long focus-throw) is not easy, so I probably focused on the carrousel as a starting-point first and next a bit closer.

Chuong, your brother in law will love this shots ;-)

Luc, nice bird-shot Congrats to your Df.

Laura, sorry to read about your loss. I like your straightforward portrait of Felix.

Thanks a lot Georg. Here's another Df + 28mm image, technically not perfect (fuzziness on the right) but nice colors though I think.

Almost 100% crop
Here one could see that the 135mm f2 is not a macro lens .. but it performs really well with tube
