I had an outdoor session today and my wife and son went with me early and we checked out the park I was working at. All with the D4 and the 85MM F1.4




MJO_2783 by MattOphotog, on Flickr

I wished I had taken the 105MM F1.8 for the second shot to kill the background some more with focal length since it was so bright I had to stop down a bit.


Matt

Very nice shot with the 85mm 1.4 Hopefully mine will be here tomorrow

Thanks for all the kind comments on the staged roadway-noise-shot!
James, the proportions of the printed image were fixed by the layout in this case and I'm the one responsible for the crop.
Many times my personal fav's are the slightly more silly ones - must be my infantile character.
Anyway, here's the pick of the paper:


I love it!!!

Ok, so tonight I decided to test out the V1 with the 300 f/4.5. I tried shooting some aircraft overhead, but nothing recognizable came of it. Definitely not something I'm good at handholding, yet, but I braced it on a headstone and got this shot.

Beautiful laura!

Unfortunately Oolong wasn't as cooperative, kept peering out to look at the tv (for real this time, not the washer)

+1 It's sharp. Is that a scientific word for guava? I recognize the texture of the bark. We used to make tops out of guave trees

Here are a couple shots from the 35mm 1.4 Can I say that this lens is well worth the money!

Thank you Leighton. So many people complained about the "busy" bokeh that I never gave this lens a chance. Then I used Curtis's and I was very pleased!

The new lens I purchased from Don Smith on the B&S. It is better than advertised. Looking at the mount I wonder if it was really ever on a camera. Took a shot with it while walking today. The guy who lives in this house-John and a lot of you would not have your nice hiking stuff were it not for his father W.L. Gore(Goretex) This is his son Bob's home. You can not really get close to it without trespassing as it is a 1/4 mile off the highway. This is the back of it that faces the White Clay Creek Watershed. Pics taken with the trusty 24 2.8 AI-S- with CPU


Beautiful looking lens!
Congrats!

When someone has a tendency for that tone, it will show up again at some or the other juncture.

Updating rules will only solve part of the issue.
