leighton-- Both are beautiful and serene. I think I like the BW version just a little more. Nice work!

Zichar-- Great photos on the catwalk and of drying fish. Are those seeds? The really pop in that image.

Saph--Beautiful architechure, I especially like the shot of Otterby windows. Very nice work!

Thank you all for the likes and the comments. We're shoving off today for Edisto Island where I hope to put more lenses into practice. The best part of this thread is that all of you bring your styles and skills to the forum and that makes me want to try new things.

Rafael - The church bell is my favorite.
Leighton - Nothing compares to the morning light. Its almost fantasy when you capture just enough to fire the imagination.
Samy - Your church series came to mind while walking Charleston. Thanks for the inspiration. St. Michaels Episcopal was built in 1751 and the weather vanes from Baltimore and here look alike The cemetery includes two signers of the Declaration of Independence.. The US courthouse is in the foreground.

Beautiful bigdee; It tells the story of a day on the lake

Loving all the church and architecture photos, especially the mission shots with the 15mm. Are they SOOC? If so that 15mm Nikkor has really good distortion control. My wide FX lens is the AF-S 16-35 and I usually have to screw around with architecture shots to straighten distortion.

I am really enjoying everyone's photos on this forum. Please keep them coming. I need to use my newly acquired MF Nikkors more

Samy, your old Otterbein church is actually 30 years older than my San Antonio de Pala mission, nice bricks too, we did not have firewood to bake the adobe with!

Ken's St Michael Episcopal is another 30 years older, back then California was undeveloped Spanish ranch land.

Gregg, with one less hobby sounds like you have some resources to go for some good range of MF Nikkors

There's a few here:

Mr. Gregg, the one claim for fame for the Nikkor 15mm is no distortion, photos are SOOC .

Thank you everyone for the comments on the model railroad images. It is quite a large layout and a group of us get together to run and work on it. I will pass on to the owner that he needs to "dirty" things up a bit. DOF is always a challage when shooting this type of image. I should look into some type of focus stacking software.

Jay, speaking of focus stacking, great work with the flowers. Beautiful colors and detail.

Greg (bigdee), the first image of the cheerleader and the second sunset image are both very nice.

Ray, looks like you have a new best friend (55 1.2). Nice work.

Buddy, nice mug of the pup!

Mihai, WOW! You have some snow. Love the b&w processing. These have a great feel about them.

Jose, great clarity in your storm approaching shots. Looks like a model.

Leighton, give my congratulations to Barbara for her 50th. Did you make her work that day? I like the color version of the village scene.

Ken, nice series from Charleston. These images have a nice crispness about them.

Georg, interesting staged lighting. The b&w interior image has a nice ambiance. The exterior has some nice building facades in the background. Nice compositions.

Rafael, the second series with the 15mm are wonderful.

Samy, another nice old church. I like the second series of detail shots.

Chin, "on the catwalk" has some great atmosphere. Well captured.

Ken, thanks, that weather vane's indeed very similar, nice pics! Neat to see an even older church around your side.

Bigdee, beautiful sparkling colors on the lake!

Rafael, thanks. Enjoying your 15mm shots, and great location to use it.

Samy, are you stirring the pot? Besides, Leighton will have him buying the 50-135 in no time.

Just not enough cat photos recently. So here's one.

Taken with the 10.5cm f4 T, a forgotten lens in the Nikon lineup. At just 34.5mm filter and 54 mm overall diameter, its a small and very narrow lens and looks odd stuck on the D800, like something's missing.

Stirring?? I was trying to bring the pot to a boil Scott.

And seeing the fun 50-135 and the 50-300 images here, those might be the only manual zooms I might consider someday.

The 25-50 f/4 is no slouch either.

Thanks for everyone chiming in on the 2 versions.

Ken - I like the composition of the steeple shot.

Scott - she has to work EVERY day!

Samy - Cool shot, I can't quite figure out what I'm seeing.

Leighton I love the waking up idea !!!

My personal favourite out of your two renditions would be the colour one. The depth of colour in the sky is simply gorgeous . But the mono rendition is dramatic too .... well done you !!!!

Love so many of the pix recently I am at a loss to find time to comment on them.

The like button comes to the rescue again.

Here are a couple of mine from last evening in rainy stormy Manchester on the day of Chinese New Year.

The lanterns have been up in the tree for a few days but this was the first time I saw them.

ISO1600 .... much too dark even at 5:30pm ish.

taken on the 28mm f2.8

The shop front speaks for itself ... where else would you go for a bottle of something nice on such a stormy night
