Only 5 days till the end of the Mayan calendar and the world ends
That would be something if it really happens
With all the blood shed in the world it might not be a bad thing to start all over
My wife and I are going to be out early that morning to take it all in
Photos to come

yeah -pretty close and it looks like you were lying on the ground - a picture of you taking that picture would have been a picture in itself.

After a pretty busy week, I'm just now catching up with the thread.

Monty, wonderful shot of the woman and kids. Your "I'm going to kneel" sure produced some great facial expressions. Higgs in the snow is a great shot.

Reagan, I'm drawn to interesting signs and your "Black Leaf" and "Pelican Cafe" are terrific.

Chuong, love the drip off the red berry and the museum ceiling shots.

Ben, "Francis Bacon" is a very cool image. I also really like your bike in traffic photo.

Rafael, beautiful late afternoon colors with the 28mm. Coit tower and Casa del Prado are great shots.

Allan, welcome! Very nice reflection shot with the 105mm.

Americo, love the richness of the pumpkin and cat shot and the starkness of the wilted rose.

Leighton, the spindly pine with the 105mm is gorgeous! Love the bokeh and the hint of green on the needles. "Greetings" is a terrific shot and I really like your "boring" landscape.

Georg, beautiful weathercock and black bird shots. Your photo of the "Georg Buchner" with the 28/3.5 PC lens is excellent.

Bert, terrific barn shot. I love the lifting fog!

Ray, gorgeous flowers, and the you've set the bar pretty high for Christmas bokeh shots.

Raymond, great bokeh shot of the cameras with the 28mm.

Zippy, "British dental work" is a very cool shot.

Matt, wonderful shots of your son and Santa. I love Brandon's expression in #2.

Nancy, gorgeous "beach snap" and flowers with the 28mm. I like your cat too, but don't tell my dog.

Samy, fantastic shot of Discovery with the PC lens. I said I wasn't buying anymore MF lenses, but after seeing yours and Georg's work with the PC, I might "need" one. Really liked the rest of the air and space series.

Tony, great shots of the capitol. The reflection shots are winners.

Paul, welcome! The portrait in the bare tree limbs is really nice.

Laura, love the statue and lights photos and the dinner shots.

Jorge, great street shots, especially the one of the "blue man."

Kevin, very cool spider and great Christmas tree shots.

Ian, more wonderful Tri-X images. Keep 'em coming!

Chin, "Newgate London" is a simply beautiful photo.

Elton, welcome! Both versions of "Route 66" look great to me.

Mark, love the bikes in the snow, Vasa, the wooden building and "4pm." Nice shooting!

Eric, terrific piano b&w.

Ben, very nice bokeh with the 200mm.

Jose, beautiful cityscapes! The parakeets and Sayaca Tanager are beautiful shots.

Roland, welcome! Very nice train photo.

Michael, welcome! Enjoy the 50mm.

Chin, great splash. I like it.

Chris, beautiful shots of the festival.

Peter, love the macros and the sunset pano is excellent.

Alan, great Christmas lights shots with your young one!

James, the ice drops are beautiful.

Philippe, very impressive Verdun series. The lighting and composition of Jacque David's grave marker is really special.

Ron, really like the lights with the 35-70mm and the flycatcher photo.

Scott, great fish and star with the 50-135mm.

Tim, really like the subtle shot of the leaves.

Rinie, beautiful photos from Leiden!

Ohhh, I'm 50 plus pages behind...... Thanks for posting so many, guys ;-)
I finally had a chance to transfer data yesterday. It gave me quite some problems, as I was not able to transfer it from a time machine back up, because of switching Macs. It sucked, and all because I had two partitions on my old macbook.

Well, my photo's are back and Leighton urged me to upload at least one that he saw on my Facebook page. OK, here we go.Taken during ,y stroll through Leiden with a friend.

35mm, f/2.0

This one looks like an old painting ('they' said, and I agree, so I kept it a little bit soft). 50mm. f/1.2. Cropped it a little bit to a panorama format
[fra

I'll be back later...

welcome back Rinie - beautiful pics from a part of the world we don't see enough of.

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:


climbing-forest, D700, ISO1600, 1/400sec, 85/2.8PC wide open, cropped


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


+1
getting that focus is quite a feat Georg

Great images all. I'm in overdrive at work and at home getting prepared for a whirlwind Christmas holiday full of Christmas celebrations and birthdays... I think it will be summer before I get any real break to breathe!

Thank you all for the compliments

The first one is where I plan to be Friday morning
The second is me still trying B/W. It was so much easier with Tri X and a darkroom in the laundry room on weekends
But that was 40 years ago

Really looking forward to seeing what this lens does in your hands Dylan! Winnipeg by fisheye will be very cool.


If I do manage to make Winnipeg look cool, it will certainly be because of the lens. I think that is much to great a feat to for me to take credit.

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








very nice! I saw the picture posed to Facebook of you "working it"

Hi Dylan, cant wait to see the streets of Winnipeg through your and the "fish's" eyes. The built-in filters might be handy for work on film.

Thanks Georg, I can't wait to start shooting with it! It seems everyone here who owns one has found their stride with it, I have seen some extremely impressive photography at 16mm in this thread. I hope to continue this fine tradition.

It has been very cold here...actually the last week the temps have risen, I'm hoping it stays this way for a few days after I take ownership.

We have already had more snow this year than all of last year. Last year it hadn't even snowed at this point in December (a very rare year it was, last year).
