This one is an MF recreation, I took an almost identical one a few days before this, but it was with an AF lens and handheld. The frost conditions repeated themselves, and this time I used the 200 f4 AI and tripod mounted it to get a little more DOF.


Love the shot Ray

Very nice shots everyone. I got back several rolls of developed 35/120 Portra and 120 Ektar so I figured I'd share a 35mm shot that I'm pretty sure is from my 50/1.2:

Monty I see you have found a new friend! The difference between F1.2 and F1.4 doesn't seem that big numerically, but to me it's huge in DOF! You are doing wonders with it already! It took me 3 days to get one in focus shot with it when I first got it!

This is very cool! What flash do you have on your camera?

BUSY day. We worked on the club website, out for dinner, then a photo club meeting.

At the meeting tonight was started a "question and answer" session. About 10 minor so. All we want to do is get a dialogue started. Yours truly leads he discussion. Lucky for me the first question was how to blur the background in a photo I started yapping about f-stop and getting close to the subject. Of course my ever-present camera was at my side. And yes, it had my new 55mm f/1.2 AI on it (Thanks Matt!) As a demo I knelt in front of Jay with the lens wide open and snapped a picture. I just did it for a special effect. I didn't expect it to be in focus.

Surprise!!!



This is a great shot and shows character in your subject. Even better that it's in focus!

Still picking through my Haleakala shots and worked a bit on this one tonight.
Pretty good crop from the 200/4 AIS.

DELICIOUS! I love graphical work and this fits the bill. Nicely seen and executed.

Very funny Matt... Pretty sweet kit my friend with those two lenses hanging around. I'll take both of them on Thursday when spending the day with my "family of choice" for Thanksgiving. My real family lives elsewhere so I've found dear friends with whom I share the holidays.

Just remember "old age and treachery will overcome youth and skill..."

That's funny Georg, the crane ate the coating

Peter, awesome portrait of the crowned crane! The backlight works great. One of these birds actually pecked a small spot in my old Sigma 14/2.8 - about 12 years back I was shooting curious cranes at the local zoo and was getting very close to the fence. Too close, a "plock" and that lens had a scar. After looking at your wonderful picture I took the battered lens out of the cabinet and tried to take a picture of the "scar":

the spot about 2/3 high on the left side was caused by a crowned crane - D700, 55/1.2 on tubes

Philippe, the ancient is holding its own from your picture despite being surrounded by the moderns, well seen!

Very nice portrait Ian. Those 1.2's and 1.4's are best for portraits at f2 or so, otherwise its all bokeh like Monty said

Georg, I like this shot, for some reason I got wrapped around ripples recently. Never came across an icebreaker before, mid Atlantic's too warm for that

Looks like one of my cats escaped and is living down in VA in a barn

Nice shots both Leighton.

Looks like fun Kevin, just thought of this, try extension tubes on the crystals when they are ready

Girls are out of school for the holiday, decided to do some chemistry

The experiment creates glowing crystals... Will probably take a few weeks to finish. Will post pics of those when done.

Emma and I hope you enjoy!

You've done an amazing job with the focus - I imagine he was going quite fast! Nice cheerful shot too.
