Samy, I like your choice of going vertical with the guard shot, well seen.

Thanks everyone, for the comments and likes. It's a lens I love to shoot, but doesn't always lend itself to be grabbed as I'm running out the door. Definitely won't be using it at the Celtic Festival this weekend

I'll have to test out that zoom theory at my favorite torture zone for low light shooting

I had this happen, but a hard refresh of the page (Hold down shift while clicking the Reload button) seems to fix the problem.

As always there are some fantastic pix posted in the last couple of days ....

Loving the blue streak Georg ....

Samy those Arlington shots on film are sharp as tacks .....

I see John is shooting from his porch again .... nice ferry shots John

Rafael .... now those are great body caps .... (pure porn)

Ken .... nice work with the worst lens ever (possibly, ........ the lens not the pix)
I promise I would not truck you in the chair...... but you could choose the side of the road ....

Anyway .... what a difference a month makes ...

At the nature reserve I noticed that 5 weeks ago a nest had been vacated as the chick had grown and was feeding itself ..... only to find that this week the nest has been built up more and the parent bird is sitting on it ....

One month ago ,,,, 500mm f4

This week 200mm f2 (cropped)

Thanks Leighton.

Laura, have enjoyed your 300 2.8 pics that I ran across.

Mark, welcome back! Was worried when you didn't show up for a while. I see you are now stationed elsewhere in Europe.

Georg, great bright view down that avenue. Missed the transparent ribbon earlier. Very nicely done. Did you have a safe spot off that road to setup and do a 2 second exposure.

John, always a pleasant view of the ferries.

Rafael, daddy "600" is cute Looks like the 5.6 P version? http://www.destoutz.ch/lens_600mm_f5.6_600111.html

Francesco, congrats on the 135 2.8. Oh wait you just got a 85 H also, you and this thread are going to be good friends

Andy, marvelous Scottish bridge! And I had to look at the Edinburgh rooftops a couple times, very enjoyable shot. Is that post processing done in Silver Efex Pro. Some day I need to get that rather than yet another lens.

Ken, love the image of the glossy ibis with the 43-86. And I love that unheralded Nikkor's front and rear bokeh around the mustard bottle.

Scott, loved the hay bale shot. Could look at it over and over again!

Georg, very nice wide angle portrait of the firefighter-in-training.

Jose, great time lapse sequence of the building coming up. Too bad about the lost greenery in that spot.

Lestor, that metal frog made me smile, and I liked the wide angle bokeh.

John, that last mountain shot with the 400 + TC is magnificient.

Laura and Steve, great duel over duck sets

Reagan, cool start with the 105 2.5. First time you got this lens? Or is it one you have bought and sold a few times

Ryan, I really liked the taxi medallion shot.

Curtis, good shot of the hill. Another reminder to me to invest in SEP.

David, lovely flower shots with the 135.

Jim, welcome to the thread, hope to see its examples with a Nikon on these pages.

Ken, great study of Ray concentrating on his manual focus ring! I can almost feel the tension on those finger tips

James (Oxford), very nice 50 1.2 portrait of the dog.

Good morning all, in an effort to keep things moving this morning, I offer a few more captures from my riverfront walk the other day.... All captures with the the 50-135 f3.5. I set the non-cpu table to 50 and 3.5 rather than 135 and 3.5 last night. I'll see how the lens performs with the new setting this weekend...

Cheers and good light,
David

Andy the pano is terrific and great effort made great rewards for you on that one!

Scott, so true! I've bought my last MF lens, at least until I see another I like/want/need.

James I don't think any third party lens can benefit from non-CPU entry. I tried a Konica with a munt adaptor with no result. I may be wrong as to others.

Georg how perfectly exposed and framed. Blue ribbon of steel would have escaped me save for your description. Very clever use of the lens and camera.

Samy nice series on Arlington (a place we all tried to avoid during my career!) Set in emotional times it is an honored place. Thank you for the comments and the likes. Leighton's comment about the vertical capture of the honor guard is spot on. As to Ray's shot ... he's a photographer all right, one second talking to you, the next looking for the perfect snap.

John some good work with the two ferries at sunset. I think the "big daddy" lens Raphael displayed needs to shoot that scene. I chuckled at the lens cap remark.

Mark, the 75-150 is the orphan of the registry, so like the 43-86, it cannot have data that may belong to another lens. Curious ... if I owned the lens I'd null out the FL and Stop info and shoot it without "CPU" entry to see if there was any difference. My reference to boredom is that since my fall in early May, my range is limited and need ideas (or photo subjects) to make my day. The non-CPU seems to be not well documented by Nikon so I found a "project." I am also glad to see Kevin involved because he's a determined individual to figure things like this out.

Laura thanks for the tip to refresh the page in order to get the correct display and info.

Steve ... the rains came yesterday and at one point I would care who was pushing or what side of the road I was on.

David I like the gulls a lot. Look forward to the non-CPU tests you make. The 50-135 has many different lenses in either FL so I think it would be one of the hardest to nail down.

So as to the rain, when it cleared it was near sunset and the 43-86 and I went out for a bit. Here's what the worst of the ten worst lenses can do.

Why? Is there a special interest here for photos from it?

In any case i found two in very good state. One i lost it white i was about to pay and the other one, the better copy of the two, i am trying to find an agreement with the seller. I already found the hs7 hood for it. But all depends on the person I am talking to.

Wow!
The one I found is with factory AI'd and it looks really gorgeous (apart from some scuff on the outside).
I hope to get an agreement and keep it in one place (next to me) instead of traveling the world

Thanks Ken. That lens seems to be enjoying posing for you with all its peacock DOF glory. BTW, only recently did I figure out how to read those peacock lines

David, that gull shot is well done indeed, I like the out of focus orange markers pointing to the out of focus ship behind the in focus gull.

Francesco, I meant the back to back acquisitions of manual Nikkors is a sure sign that your affliction can be best diagnosed by folks on this thread But as Chuong pointed out the 85 1.8 H has a storied history on this thread.

Steve, nice captures of the moorhen chick coming out of its nest. Haven't seen one since couple years ago in Florida.

Interesting article on the soothing effects of photography:

http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2014/07/24/photography-as-a-balm-for-mental-illness/?hpw&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&version=HpHedThumbWell&module=well-region®ion=bottom-well&WT.nav=bottom-well

One paragraph stuck out for me:

"One reason photography may provide a salubrious effect is that making the effort required to take the pictures and seeing the positive results build a kind of reward system in the brain, according to Kelly Lambert, a behavioral neuroscientist and chairwoman of the psychology department at Randolph-Macon College."

You are correct sir! She been told she's been horrible by so many a little affection is all she wanted. Her lines were for those who could not read the numbers and the numbers were for the ones that were color blind.

Ken - regarding the non CPU settings for zoom lenses I read somewhere (can't remember the source), that the setting should be applied at the long end i.e. on the 80-200 f4 use the 200 f4 setting.

I haven't experimented since on both my zooms (80-200 and 28-45) the results are satisfactory and any issues easily fixed in PSE.

Seconding that comment.

I sure have spent a lot more time acquiring manual lenses than acquiring skills in the last 2+ years since getting my first one

Apparently it's in the genes !!

Or is it just bred into the family ??

Whatever and however it works through the generations ....

I couldn't resist these pix .... well, I couldn't resist showing them even though they are a little soft in places ... (all from film stock)

Family is important ..... and inheritance is a major reason for how we are ....

Well that's my excuse anyway .....

My father ..... Nikon user

Me .... Nikon user

My son ... Nikon user ....

What's not to like ....

Thanks for the likes and the comments, much appreciated !

Now, trying to get back to the chronological order.....

This is a bronze statue dedicated to Lord Nelson 8 years after his death and bears the famous inscription "England Expects Every Man to do His Duty" and is in Exchange Flags Square behind Liverpool Town Hall, commissioned in 1813. There are 4 sorrowful prisoners around the base representing Nelson's famous victories - Trafalgar, Cape St. Vincent, Copenhagen and The Nile with 4 bronze bas-reliefs between the prisoners showing events in the battles.

On the top is a nude Nelson with one foot on a canon and one foot on an enemies' corpse, surrounded by "Death", Britannia and an English seaman.

It's location is where the original cotton exchange business was conducted in the open air. It was Liverpool's first major public sculpture and was paid for by public subscription - the merchants of Liverpool being particularly grateful as the defeat of the French meant they were able to trade internationally in peace.

and behind it a 1st World War memorial to members of the Liverpool Exchange Newsroom who gave their lives in the line of duty
