Finally time to sit through several pages at a time and enjoy the pictures and the posts!
Georg, thanks for the input on the possible reasons for the muted blacks. I need to also think through if I had lighting conditions correct. I could mail the film for development, but want to support the local shop too as far as I can.
Andy, the scenes at Barron River Gorge and the rusted automobiles are marvelous!!
Ken, looks from the angle of that first photo that you had were prone on the pavement after the miles long photo safari with Ray and Jay What worries me more is your shot taken on the train track, seemingly from the same position, with a train visible in the not too far distance Super capture of the 9mm casing flying off.
James, welcome back, I don't believe you have visited for a while! Good memory of the "brick" Motorola. And great spotlight on the pawn out on its own on the chess board.
J-photo, welcome. Not sure if anyone else posted this link, but if not, here's a site that has excruciating detail on Nikkor lenses, going all the way back to the late 1940s, the first 5cm f2 designed for the S-mount.
Ram, the orchid is beautiful, hope you find a 55 1.2 soon. Have you been checking KEH?
Buddy, sweet orchid with the 55mm lens!
Jay, loved that peek at the stream through branches. And marvelous shot of that colorful delicate flower amongst the greenery.
Laura, kudos to your work towards a nursing career and best of luck for getting into the fast track!
Ray, terrific images of the performers at Disney, especially the last one of Billy Ocean! And loved the wooden bridge image from your FUJI outing. And oh boy, what an outstanding BIF with the 135 f2. That lens has fit right into your style.
Jose, what a wonderful scene captured with the double rainbow. I like the bright building in the front contrasted with the greenery in the background. And your superb skill evident again in the grasshopper image.
I still like Curtis' repost of the Ray and Reagan pic
Curtis, great job capturing the smile on the teenager. Normally I get a picture of a palm
Ron, cool Nikon graffiti on the inscription Good demo of what the Df can do at high ISO.
Chuong, congrats on the new job! Cool to see that the MF craze can be used as an interview response
Kevin, interesting to hear about the back focusing. Hope that the shim resolves the issue.
Georg, great portrait of that monkey with your new 400 3.5! Quite an acute angled triangular face, very interesting. And just delightful image of the froggy piggy back ride!!! Nothing offensive at all.
Andy, superb Melbourne black and whites!
David, wonderful sunset in Western Australia. Makes me think of the ongoing search for MH370, perhaps way out in the ocean in that direction.
Laura, indeed glad to have some female participation in this thread from you and Nancy
Paul, Monty has a flicker site. I have occasionally commented on his photos. His style is still the same we remember from here, something got into him and he went over the dark (AF) side
Curtis, very belated but still happy birthday wish for Sue. And wonderful peaceful way to spend the birthday - taking that walk.
Gregg, missed your story of the D7000 getting crushed by the power seat. Quite amazing sculptures of the cops on the bikes. And great job capturing the sculptures.
Scott, I always enjoy the images you capture of that hobby train scenes at your friend's place. At the Civil War musuem in baltimore, when I came across the model train, I thought of those pics
John, outstanding image of the small ferry under the grand and colorul sunset! Great image of the twins enjoying a reward after hard days work at the school!
Rafael, your minty lineups of Nikkors are always a treat! And quite a striking lineup of the home defense equipment
Mihai, always good to hear from you. Patiently waiting for more scenes from Romania.
Reagan, looks like a lot of fun for Bonnie at Cox's Grocery
Ken, great tip on Hoppes #9 for cleaning lens exteriors. Will need to google soon as I am done with these comments And will keep in mind your mention of not using too much Seems like the San Jose Mercury News photographer took care of the 180 that you now have.
Rafael, enjoying your photos of the shooting in the mountains. Looks like the Catalunyan guy will go back home very happy. Must have been as much thrill as watching his city's soccer team.
Rafael, I also use a black ink to touch up blemishes, but you are right, doesn't work when the wear is bad.
Bert, cool memorial to James Dean in front of the Hollywood hills. And quite a home in the next pic.
Mihai and Ken, interesting discussion on the Soviet times. A bonus of checking out the Civil War trail in downtown Baltimore was the Katyn memorial a couple blocks from there. Will try to develop those images later today and post.
Peter (Madison), outstanding and very pleasing water droplet macros!!!!
Goats?? Must be more posts I am missing.
