For those who hate flower shots, I'll apologize up front for this set.........

All with the X-E1 and a beater Nikkor 55 f/3.5 micro, I think all of these are wide open....

Michael, that Nikkor looks fantastically sharp. How about at 100% crops? (No need to post any, just wondering what your opinion is.)

I bought that lens from KEH in bargain condition on a whim a couple of years ago when I was shooting with the NEX 5N and I was amazed how good it was.. It looks like its been through a war, but the like many macro lenses the front element is recessed deep in the lens body, so its protected and very clean. Optically, its quite sharp, even wide open and gets even better stopped down a click. The shot of my wife above was wide open at ISO 800 and was even "softened" with negative clarity in LR! I've also used it on Canon FF with good results.

In the Nikon world the 55 f/3.5 has a very good reputation, apparently. I don't use it enough though because of the slow aperture, I've considered picking up the f/2.8 version, but if I was going to do that I probably should just buy the Fuji 60mm, which I have been considering.

Michael, that is a really nice set! Especially the one of your wife.

Last week I found a really pretty lake not far from home. This time the weather was gray and dull, so I played with split toning in Lightroom. The place should look great in autumn, maybe with some mist. Probably on a nice summer evening too. I'll definitely be back.

Very nice, love the clarity. Did you hand-hold the shots for stitching?

cputeq thank you!
xenor, very nice, all of them. Fantastic colors in the first one!

My fiancé isn't into photography, but he knows what kind of weather I like, so yesterday evening he suggested that we should go for a little walk. Here are some of the shots (all X-E1 with Fuji 14mm):

Thank you Helena!
I love what you're doing with the 14mm - I especially like the second one above. You're making me think hard about selling off some Canon gear to buy one!

My turn, it has been a looong time since I have posted here.

Of course, it was windy, EVERYTIME I want to shoot!
Anywho, the sun was backlighting this flower, it looked like it was glowing inside, when the light was at the right time.
I shot a bunch of shots to try and get this one.
Kinda hard to see on the web sized jpg version.
Oh, a HUGE crop too, needed to use the macro tubes to get closer.

Fuji X-E1 and Contax N 85/1.4

Thank you Grenache!
buggz2k, nice dreamy look. It has been a really windy summer here as well, so I can relate to your frustration. Besides making close-ups of plants almost impossible it ruins any reflections on lakes and ponds. We have had some great clouds though.

I thought this was a sweet moment, there are dogs everywhere in the city and this woman was feeding this one some leftovers.

That Nikkor 55/3.5 is probably one of the best bargains going. Got mine for $90 and it's one of my go-tos. Nice work with it, Michael.
