Thank you :-)
Unfortunately there was some slight wind but you see it only on the left grass that is blurry.
Missed to take a secant exposure with lower shutter speed just for the foreground.

Welcome to the thread Achim. That photo is a lovely introduction to your work with a manual focus lens. I hope you'll have occasion to contribute some more photos. A fellow countryman of your, Georg, has made a significant contribution to this thread, though he appears to be on sabbatical. We're always delighted when folks residing in Europe join us in appreciating these lenses. The PC-E is not an older lens but it qualifies for this thread.

Thanks for the beautiful photo you posted.

Really nice photo Achim! That's my kind of landscape photography.

Here's a few more from my current stay at Madeira Island.

All shots with either the Nikkor 24/2.8 Ai @ f/8 or the Nikkor 85/1.4 AIS @ f/8.

This is the old road, before they built the large tunnels with the Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM). This part is now closed since the cliff collapsed.

As you can see, Mother Natura has been reclaiming what was hers from the very beginning.

Nuno, great set of photos. I want to mention to you that after a discussion on the thread we've adopted a rather informal rule that no more than four photos will be included in each post. You're welcome to make multiple posts but four photos is about the right amount for us to comment on. We've had participants in the past do real photo dumps on the thread which were not much appreciated by participants. Now we ask that folks be thoughtful in making their selections for posting. I hope you'll understand. We definitely want to see more photos from your time in the Mediterranean region. Stunning colors...

Achim, welcome and what a gorgeous debut shot!!!



A macro sequence with my old 105/2.5 P + tubes:


Tiny white spider predation sequence. por labecoaves, no Flickr


D7100 at 1.3x crop mode + 20mm+36mm Kenko tubes + Nikkor-P 105mm f/2.5 F (Sonnar) ai´d & CPU'd + buitl in flash + diffuser, tripod, ISO 250, f/8 at 1/60s, each image ~30% cropped. This tiny spider had less than 1cm of length, and the whole sequence was during 18 seconds. Taken during the night, a spot light was used for focusing.

Alright Curtis, I'll keep that in mind and post a maximum of 4 photos per post.

By the way, Madeira is not in the Mediterranean Sea.

Good night now, already way too late over here.

Achim, welcome and just terrific first image on the thread. Ben from Australia had that lens I believe but he is off to Leica land.

Jose, super macros of the little white spider. Perfection as usual.

Ray, very nice scenes again with the 18 3.5, very tempting lens from your photos

Nuno, keep those Madeira pics coming!

Ken, great to hear you are done with the hospital stay!

Here's one from recent crop of rolls developed. This is with the tiny 5cm 1.4 SC lens on the S2 rangefinder, using AgfaPhoto Vista 200 film.

Now a couple using the Fuji Superia 1600 film for the first time. The lens is the 3.5cm f2.5 W-Nikkor, just about as tiny as the 5cm 1.4 SC. This combo (S2 + 3.5cm W-Nikkor) fits right into the pocket.

Tripods are not allowed in the museum, so I figured the fastest color film available is the next best thing to try

oh yes. I had a bottle of water with me and did not stay out more than 30 min. I went back to the same location today but to the other side of the lake.

I enjoy the link James posted but I know I won't be able to get my kids to do that stuff at once. I might get 3 seconds of what I wanted but as soon as I start looking through the viewfinder, things are out of control again. Good luck, Chin.

Just breathe and relax., Chin. They don't come with an owners manual, and those that write the books don't usually have any of their own. Do your best - there is nothing more you can do anyway. Hope everyone is, and stays health...congratulations!

When the stars collide and bring forth events that are unforgettable ....

Then they need to be recorded on film .....

Well maybe it's not that poetic .....

But

Whilst copying slides from a by-gone-era ...... I was reminded that this weekend coming 15th/165th June 2014

Another running of the Le Mans 24 hour race will take place.

Back in 1991 I was there again ... (been too many times to recount)

And taking photos as always .....

Using Nikon F3 with mainly a 300mm f2.8 lens and TC-200 2x convertor at times too ....

As I have been going through some of the slides, all taken on Ektachrome, mainly ISO 400 I thought I would post some from this age ...

This weekend sees I think another all American team driving, lead by Patrick Dempsey ....

A few here to start from the Porsche Team of Great Britain before the race ....

Derek Bell, Hans Joachim Stuck, Frank Jelinski .... and a hand full of Hawiian Tropic girls in one instance (just for Reagan)

As if we need reminding ....

Motor Racing is a fast and dangerous event ....

Cars travel very quickly round the 8.47 mile circuit at Le Sarthe ....

1991 saw Mazda win with an average speed of 128 mph over 24 hours ....

2 laps behind (17 miles) was a Jaguar with an American on the team, Davy Jones

But Spice SE90 car number 8 didn't make it .... blown engine ...

Porsche No 14 from Team Salamin Primagaz managed a lap speed of 144mph and they weren't the fastest !!

It's a tiring event to follow and attend, but it is so much fun despite the potential dangers.
