Ronny, the 1st shot is really great, wonderful colors and usage of shallow DOF. The harsh bokeh gives a lot to photo, it would not be nearly as good with "neutral bokeh" lens.

Jim, great colors, but if this was HDR why to leave the foreground so dark?

....Nice pic btw.

Thanks - so it's normal that with good lenses at optimum apertures it won't do anything, or at least doesn't seem to do anything positive? If I would shoot makros, this would be really great (could shoot f/14-16 and recover sharpness). But I don't think I'll buy Topaz InFocus since I don't like "all sharp" nature photos and I rarely anymore do makros.

With small dosage as I described before, it simply sharpens things up a tiny bit. But no, if you have really sharp lens, it wont do much. You are using it as DOF/diffraction removal, which is other way to use it.

Probably as you said, most useful if one doesnt have perfect lens or do a lot of macro shooting. Maybe it doesnt have huge effect on my pics cause Fuji S5 is sorta "soft" permanently and regular sharpnening is near useless on it.

If you ever wanted this for free, its built-in in RawTherapee. Among other interesting stuff..

Samuli, enjoying to see your usage of F/1.4.

Ronny, hard to comment all goodies. Last page "p.840 #4" No2&3 are superb in very different ways. Awesome stuff on this page too.

Rödluvan, sweet. I did not see any Nikon cam guy but here's a shot from the very same place at noon today (as your #1). Distagon 35/1.4:

That's because I'm not vulgar, but more akin to The Wind :P

More from yesterday with the 2.8/21 which I'm growing more and more fond of

There are some great shots on this page.

Here's one of mine from today with the 50mm Planar at f/2.8. I think the transition of in focus to out of focus gives the cherub some 3D pop.

Ronny _Olsson: #1 on this page is gorgeous. Gotta say the 35/2 boat shot catches my attention as well

dthrog00 & Rodluvan: very nice work with the 50mm planar.

wfrank: love the 35/1.4 portrait. the shadows are perfectly exposed without blowing out the highlights.

I was asked to photograph a family today. It was a great day to do so and came away with some fun pictures. As I pulled into my driveway I reached for my camera and bag only to find that I had left the bag at the park. My head began to flood with thoughts of stupidity. Not wasting a moment I threw the truck into gear, dumped the clutch and raced back to the park. An hour and 15 minutes after I had left the park I was fortunate to find my camera bag sitting under the park bench where I had left it. However the jarring trip (I FLEW over bumps, pot holes, and any terrain in my way) had dislodged the intake tube under the hood and my truck and my truck was running rough. Leaving the park I drove a block before needing to stop and refasten the tube. As I went to turn around and get back on the road I came upon a couple rusted gems hidden from the public's view. I stopped, met the owner and was able to snap a few shots before heading back on my way.

with the 50P
