Andy, I'm with James, you've got your processing mojo working. I've no doubt that how we see the world affects how we process images, but I also believe the way we process images affects how we assess the world as we wander about with our camera. You definitely have it all working. I love what you're bringing to the board.

I took my recently acquired 135mm AI f2 out for a spin yesterday, pretty impressed with it.


Vic, I hope you weren't influenced by all the chatter on the thread about this lens... Of course, if you were, you wouldn't be the first. Sweet photo. Take that lens for another spin...

Great photos folks!
Here's a couple of Mothers Day flower photos from Melody's moms garden. I used the 55mm 1.2

So the prognosis is this I have a right ankle that I can't put any weight on for the next six weeks. My left leg is braced stiff, that's the one with the hamstring reattachment and knee

Not sure what the mishap was, but glad you are on the mend.

I must admit that your mishap crossed my mind yesterday as I came back from a 6 mile run and found myself locked out of the house with the wife and kids many miles away.
I managed to scale our deck trellis, climb the roof and find a bathroom window un-latched. One bad move and I would have similar injuries!

Heal quickly.

Hi

Actually I had one of these a few years ago and sold it and I've been suffering from sellers remorse ever since. I finally found another at a decent price so I'm pretty happy. I just hope I use it enough to do it justice.

On a happier note: When you put your claim into your home owners insurance policy for the D700 and the 55mm 1.2 that were destroyed in the fall you might just have enough cash to get that DF camera you've been wanting

Best wishes for a speedy recovery, Ken.

" Knarled Trees" is a standout for me, James.

Simply great work on the last couple of sets, Andy. I especially like the train shot, the way that all the smoke actually makes the picture.

Every town and city has its homeless and victims of hardship.

Paris has them too .....

Catching sleep wherever you can .... it's perhaps not to clever to wake them with the mirror slap of a camera

So here is a photo of the dust specs on the 85/1.4 AIS that I am thinking about buying.



What do you guys think?

Price is 450 USD (330 EUR) already with shipping included.

I don't think those would show up on any picture unless at f/22. It is not hard to clean the front element either. You unscrew the serial number ring and the element falls out.

See my thread here:

Only one of those lenses did I clean and the rest produced fine images.
Dust specs are fine - it's really only a problem if there is a fine dusting across any of the elements that really matters.

Plus, if you did want to get it cleaned it wouldn't be that much to have it done depending on where you are.

Thank you for the very nice comments on my car shots.

Chin, I'm not sure what the difference is but I have migrated to PSE 12 from PSE 6 and the processing of NEF files is somewhat different. I've also moved to Win 8.1 but that should have no impact. I think the real issue is that this 28 2.8 is a stellar lens that makes it hard to mess up an image!

Great stuff Ronny
I really like the vignette on your photo Phillippe
Leighton you surprised me this week i was betting on another 35mm market day. Very nice!
Andy picked up the void by using his 35mm 1.4. Nice photos Andy
Lotsa folks using the 105mm 2.5 I guess mine needs some love as well. Maybe this week

Here's one more of the Iris at Dots house using the 55mm 1.2

You're posting some killer photo shots Ray. Very inspiring work. Of course, we have to tip our hats to that extraordinary lens as well... the 55 f/1.2 in all it iterations is a gem. Honestly, I'm surprised it sells for less than the 50 f/1.2, though the AI-s designation seems to affect folks thinking on the subject. There are very few lenses where that version warrants a few extra dollars. I've even been rethinking the AI version of the 50 f/1.2 which has seven aperture blades while the AI-s has nine. The 55 f/1.2 also has 7 aperture blades and I sure like what it does. Newer isn't always better as we've learned... Wonderful work Ray and stellar processing.
