Now that my monitor seems to be in the ball park, I'd thought I'd share this image from this morning. The sky was showing some nice alpen glow. And guess what? No more sensor spots! Shot with the 105mm f2.5.



Leighton, not BaaaaahhhhhdddD at all.



Now, that's a "sheep" shot

I was playing around with the PK-13 extension tube on my 105mm 2.5 ais last night. The subject was a Western Electric 300B audio tube that puts out some nice warm colors in a long exposure.

Cheers, Jeff.


Very cool!
Those tubes put out nice warm sounds too! I have them in my stereo

Took the 50 f2 out for a few quick snaps of our tourist "mecca" yesterday en route to the golf course.

Nothing spectacular but thought Rocky might enjoy this dog having its fortune told..

I love that shot Peter. It really tells a story



Thank you Ray

Jeff - That tube shot was excellent.

Philippe - I like this one, it has that 3D look going.

My neighbors woodstove was cranking this morning! The morning light was pretty on Sugarloaf as well.

Alan, I'm plumb sorry, I forgot to mention how much I enjoyed your images with Nikki. I really liked the history lesson about the train station. I especially liked the the flare shot of the rails.

I missed focus on this a bit, some sharpening hopefully saved it (I think it did okay). 105mm f/1.8 AI-s on my walk to work today.

Phillippe - you must have that camera always at the ready - beautifully captured - standing in the light .
What are you finding are the differences between shooting with the nikon 85 1.8 and your zeiss 85 1.4?

Also enjoy hearing the differences between the NIKKOR and your Planar 85s, Philippe!

And a 4 photo stitch (Still with the 105 f/1.8) of a great name for a barbershop.

Quai de Seine, 85 1.8 HC :


Philippe I've only been to Paris once, on a whirlwind 36hour visit and had a great time. I knew instantly that this was Paris because those riverside stalls made a big impression on me. Very cool shot and I'm happy to reminisce about my short visit!

Great shots all through the last few pages folks. Nice pics on this page by Philip and Philippe.

Its been a hectic week and in between work I have been thinking about what to try next. Too much of the same recently, feel in a rut. Maybe street images, could do a walkabout in downtown Baltimore tomorrow.

Leighton, nice morning image. For a moment I thought that was Sugarloaf mountian in MD, which I have hiked up often with camera gear. But there must be one in VA too.

Great shot Phillippe. You are doing great work with the 85mm
Leighton this one certainly is another winner.
Philip I love your street photos. Reminds me of my old home town.

Here are a few taken with the 100-300 5.6 AIS. Which BTW I have for sale on the B&S alone with two others. "Shameless plug" This lens is terrific wide open.
