This camera belonged to my dad who was a Combat Photojournalist in the Navy. This thing has been through Desert Storm, floated in the Mediterranean Sea, and dangled out of an aerial refueling plane's door while capturing an incredible photo of a fighter refueling.

i thought it was very fitting to shoot an old 50mm f1.8 with my thrify fifty.

Let me know what you guys think, i'm thinking number 2 will be my entry. BTW, be gentle, these are my first photos posted on here!

Welcome to the PC Forum

+1 @ #2 being my initial choice for entry amongst the three. It might benefit form some rotation correction, and number 1 draws to me a bit, but as is #2 pulls me a bit more than the first one. Then again, I kinda dig the light in the center of the lens of #3. Lotta help here I know. I think I've just got too much turkey on the brain right now.

BTW ... tell your dad I wanted his job, but the Navy said somebody had to run the ship ... MM1 (SW) ... although I did perform official duties as "Ship's Photographer" along the way.

I've posted them here from your Flickr. Just go to the "Share" button. Pick a size to grab and select the BBCode radio buttton. Copy & paste all the text in the box and you can drop it in the FM message directly.

Your comments are my exact thoughts on all three. i love the light from the viewfinder showing through in number 3.
