Ram, very interesting concept. How difficult is it to combine the 60 photos? I see some great possibilities with this technique.

Awesome Ram! Wow. I've never seen anything like this before. It is like an oversized shot taken with the 8mm lens Rafael owns.

Some Baltimore history, in fact its role in the start of the Civil War.

601 President Street. This used to be the President Street train station, built in 1849 - the first train station in the US. It is now a Civil War Museum. This is where Massachussets and Pennsylvania soldiers were coming out of and traveling to Camden station, about a mile and a half to the west, on April 19, 1861.

The museum has both railway and Civil War artifacts.

In keeping with its location right on the border between the North and the South, loyalties of key Marylanders were divided.

The Civil War Trails sign points to the route which the soldiers were following during the riot. The road was much narrower back then.

This is where the soldiers' route turned west from President Street onto Pratt Street. Most of the action seems to have taken place on Pratt Street. The latter is now very different from a century and a half ago.

And as promised, here's where the first shots of the American Civil War rang out. There was a narrow bridge that got Pratt Street over the Jones Fall. The first shooting between the soldiers and the mob attacking them occured right around here.

All these images were with the 35 f2 OC.

Thank you guys.. @Greg, PTGUI does an extremely good job of stitching if you have enough overlap between images and does not have parallax errors.

I did 20 shots of pano shot around me. First with the 28 pointed towards the sky, second at my eye level and third with the ground.
Now once you stitch all them.. you get a huge pano shot., you can take it to Photoshop and do Polar Coordinates and correct the sizing.
Now still, you will have a huge gap of where you were standing, for that., I take one more shot of the ground and then overlap it as a layer and fix the gap.
You can make it interesting by superimposing an image of yourself too.
Example shot below. (Shot with the AF lens., hence not embedding it)

Awesome! I have seen this effect for a while, always wanted to try it. Nicely done.

Curtis, really like the last image of the tree bark and yellow leaf.

John, nice series John. Great capture of your daughters. They even got the same ice cream flavors.

Jay, lovely flower with the 55 f1.2. Great colors and bokeh.

Ray, I like the state park stream. Nice water blur.

Ram, great effect with the 360 degree pano. Well seen and stitched together.


Thank you all for the comments and likes on the model railroad image.

I stumbled upon this for B&W localised PP work:
http://www.luminous-landscape.com/tutorials/bw_master_print.shtml
And have been messing around with Photoshop to see whether it's an improvement, a huge departure from my normal workflow of layers and masks
It's a good read hence me sharing it here
Tedious so far but it may be because I've had to unlearn some habits
Maybe someday I'd stump up the money for Joel Tjintjelaar's videos on ISGM

Samy, great tour of Baltimore. Like the lens as well.

Ram, I truly did not believe such a pano was even possible with a 28mm

Had to take the 55mm 1.2 SC with the new dress out for a spin, the lens that donated the better looking focusing ring cannot be used yet as it is non-ai. I started on an ai conversion by removing the bayonet mount Phillips screws, as usual I had to drill two out, I even bought new screwdrivers to no avail. The drilling is only partial, I drill the head just enough to get a tiny reamer on a reversed rotation drill bite enough to force the screw to rotate. I have enough parts lenses by now to source new screws.

Cleaned out the 'new' 55mm 1.2 SC aperture ring and mount. Lubed the aperture ring. Now it is easy to remove and replace the aperture ring all I need is the courage to file the ai cut into it. I can't test the lens, but it was untouched inside and it is clean so I am not worried. Will just look through it with the scope converter tomorrow, that is actually a good lens test.

This is what the 'old' 55mm 1.2 SC does with nik film effects at 1.2.
I am not a bokeh master as others here, I just like the different rendition.

Just for kicks this is what the same subject looks like with the 28mm 3.5 PC and no Nik film effects. More informational, less interesting.

First attempt at some water drop macros - been wanting to do this ever since I bought my new flash. This is all D600, Nikkor 105mm f/2.5 AI at f8 1/250s ISO 400, 20mm worth of tubes and one flash at low output setting behind a plexiglass sheet. Some cropping in some images. Need to work on a better basin (this is a 9x13 pyrex baking pan). Water was blue in the basin and red in the squeeze bottle, later thickened with some corn starch. 150 clicks for about 10 good images.

Does it matter if the possible use of firearms, by gang members, that kill, escalate these figures? They do kill in many other methods, regardless of what country they are in, machete, string, cars, knives, goats. Its asinine to compare apples to oranges, as we all know oranges will definitely kill more folks, as the are highly loaded with high power vitamin C! End of topic, here, and no, band HANDS, as they are the leading cause of DEATHS, worldwide!
