Joe, congrats to your new old 105/1.8 Ais and the fine portrait. Love the atmospheric look of this beautiful shot. The 105/1.8 is a gem, a pleasure to shoot with.

Scott, wow, your landscape is really dramatic. The bright colors above the white and bright grey-tones are amazing. Your final "End of winter"-shot for this year?

Ken, I like the no-parking-signs. A nice detail, love the contrast between worn signs and fresh flower-colors.

Curtis, nice set of 105's! The 105/1.8 is my go-to-105, except I really wanna go light (in this case the 100/2.8 Series-E might works as substitute for the "real" Nikkor's) or when I wanna use filters (more 52mm than 62mm-filters in my bag).

Rafael, as usual beautiful gear-images. Drooool.

Americo, one of the first lessons I've learned as a newcomer to this wonderful thread is that pictured bottles should be full ;-) http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/929565/1362#10744428
Nice bokeh-shots with the 85/1.4!

Steve, love the portrait of the lady, but agree with Leighton: saturation is a bit high.

Leighton, nice point of view and really "rural" colors on your tractor-shot.

Thanks for the comments on the closed-plant-set!

James, the "era ends only locally" - the machines and tools were used to make fine equipment, just no longer here (can't blame the international buyers). Physical work will be done elsewhere. I just hope that some of the "real workers" here will continue to produce real goods I can see and touch.

+1 on George's comments on the before sets.

Here are two shots on my Nikkor-S 50mm f1.4 wide open.

Nice shots.., but what quality are you posting. The JPG quality looks bad on my laptop which jagged edges on these photos.

Well, they started out full, but, with a handheld manual focus lens, they somehow ended up empties!

Yes, they do look little pixelated to me as well. Maybe they are heavily crooped, or maybe, the D700 is set to DX mode, and cropped even more so?

Joe, after you use this lens and any others you may buy, you'll understand why you bought it and won't question your judgement any more. Very nice opening image BTW.


Thanks Leighton. I'm really pleased with the 105 so far.

Using a Samsung tablet with built in "app" software that supports a 11" screen ... and yes the .jpg images are smaller than the norm. I'm not sure how to fix it, if the "app" is the issue.

I tried something using Georg' suggestion about compression which was set to the poorest quality. ... how's this? Using NEF to output via ViewNX2,

It's that time of the year, time to work the ground and get ready for planting. We will be planting over 700 broccoli and cabbage plants in it today. Shot with the least used lens in my kit, the 24/2.8.



Nice Leighton. "Nothin runs like a Deere"

Thank you Georg. It was almost 60 degrees F, so the sun and sky were so warm but the ground is still so cold. I have not seen any signs of spring other than some foolish robins. For green color, I will have for chasing down a John Deere.

Ken these are much better for quality of image. No jagged edges. Nice and sharp on my monitor.

Steve, French trains and girls. Nicely captured.

Georg, lovely scene. Hope that is not poison ivy.

Ram, I like the first flower image with the 50 1.4.



Thank you everyone for the comments and likes on the winter sunset.

Thank you Scott for your comments. I also shot them with the 105mm f2.5 which was really pleasing as well.

First image is SOOC Jpg with rendition as normal., the second was jazzed up in PS by adding contrast and vibrance.

Ken, I still see jagged edges on my large desk monitor but they look much better then the first time you posted them.

Is that your Harley?
