Philippe, the traces of blue and gold/yellow at the foreground really make your female counterpart stand out. Love this effect!

Reagan, nice work with your new 180!

Jose, fantastic work with the 300/4.5! Luring with bananas would result in countless pictures of my neighbors, I'm afraid (lot's of jokes here about Eastgermans - "Ostdeutsche" - and their appetite for bananas :-).
Your panos done with the 135/2 are great too. Do you see a difference to the 135/3.5 for stopped-down shots like this?

Scott, congrats to your 50-135! I like especially the first shot.

Rafael, the D-Day-Doll looks really great (your excellent picture and the painting too ;-).
Love the many examples of unusual camera/lens/TC-combos here at this thread.

Chuong, beautiful portraits! The 50/1.2 is really tricky to focus (I've done much, much worse).

Tim, love your shot of the leaves done with the 45 PC-E! Very moody.

Rinie, I like your painterly pictures a lot. Reminds me of boating through the (frisian in my case) waterways - thank you!

Americo, I like your choice of framing on the portrait of your son - the strong off-center-composition together with the deep blacks add a lot of impact to this portrait.

Matt, very nice illustrated story about your walk - the last picture is hilarious.

Ron, the flycatcher is very, very nicely taken!

I haven't shot much the last days with MF-Nikkors - typical wet, dull and cold december-weather here and shooting was more chore than pleasure.
Here's a picture taken a while back - one of my first tries with the 85PC:

Hi Georg, I normally don't like images other than architecture taken with these lenses, or perhaps to show the "toy miniature effect". But as happens most of the time, I have to change my mind. This is a very nice image and it worked perfectly here, well done !

Very interesting shots Chuong. Not too often we see images from the 15mm. I for one would enjoy seeing more from it.

Georg, I love everything about this shot, pace, focus, cold color, perfect WB, overall rendering (not to mention the model...) . Great stuff!

Tried a different angle today on the sheep. I also wanted to use the 24mm f2.8 a little to clean out the cobwebs.

Thanks Laura, Philippe and Georg!

Reagan, congratulations with your new lens! And have fun on the show. (I guess others got new lenses too, I missed that, unless I get a chance to catch with the 50 plus pages)

Leighton, lovely shot of the sheep, nice angle, very nice B&W

Chuong, beautiful shots from the museum, ands what a great roof!

Georg, a rare and lovely colour photo from you! Really nice, nice pod and colors!

Jose, great shot of the tanager!

Matt, I love the photo where your son is squeezed between his loving grand parents! I hope you're not in too great pain at the moment and able to work and do things. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

Philippe, you definitely got her! (need to process my photo's from Nancy.

I'll go further back later. Hope, you're all well

Leighton,with the 24 you must have been pretty close

Thanks Rinie and Reagan. That's just another number tag, I was about a foot or two from them!
