Very nice set, Laura! Sorry, can't read the last line - everything below "Perfection has its price" is just too small for my eyes

Leighton, the "sunset-street" is fantastic!

Jose, another very nice "environmental bird portrait". Thanks for sharing the impressive images taken with the 50-135 too!

Laura, all good, but I love the composition and perspective of this one. The last one is funny too, and I like Georg, can't quite make it out!

Rafael, love "A path to the clouds". The 400/3.5+3TC's-combo is impressive to say the least.

Chuong, Yup, I picked up a well used D3 for fairly cheap, but I forgot to check what lens I had in the data, OOPS. all with the 85 f/1.4.

Laura, wow a D3 with a 135mm f2.0 ? I guess I missed this during the break. Congrats.


HA HA Georg, I have a southern USA guy in mind for the >handwritten< part of the sign.

Thanks Leighton, I was on my way up the steps to the fourth level up the parking garage for that shot.

Monty, the "manual-readers"-shot is excellent.

Chin, love your architecture-images.

Kevin, the stitched building is beautifully captured.

Ben, love your work with the 24 PC-E! The tilted pano is really cool.

Paul, congrats to your Noct! I like especially the "Bridge" and "Bambi".

Philippe, very cool (in every aspect) ice-skater-picture.

Ronny, the portrait of your daughter is beautifully done.

Tony, I like your set of the "red glass thingies" a lot ;-)

Monty, an extreme crop of Rocky and Higgs (just the two heads, rotated a bit clockwise, maybe with a dramatic B&W-conversion) should make a scary „killer-image". But I like the picture as it is too.

Mark, the "Blessralle" is my personal fav from your Zürich-set.

Eric, love the ice-shot from a few pages back.

Tony, the "Berries" taken with the 55/1.2 is (are?) wonderful.

Rafael, the scanned "fire"-set is breathtaking. Thanks for sharing!

Ray, I really like the "geese-parade".

Sorry, I've missed some really good contributions...

Thanks for your comments on my shoes (I check my footwear at least twice before leaving home now ;-) and the singing-children-shot.

Thanks for the comments on my recent building shot. I wasn't quite happy with it, I first thought the lens was having issues (if you follow the front point of the building, it isn't perfectly straight). I found out today that the reason it is a little wavey is because of heat expansion of the metals. In winter, the air is cold on one side (keeping the shaded side around 40 degrees F) and the sun heats the opposite side to about 80+. Makes it warp a little. In the summer, its perfectly straight. To date, I think its the most complex shot I have taken.

For those that may have missed it... Oh, the building is affectionately known as "the Boat"

Kevin, the "Boat" is full of photo-opportunities. As stated before, I like your shot of it. It should make a great subject for all kind of detail-shots. Here is the local "Boat" or better "Bow" (in nautical terms) - sorry, can't post it here.. For some years now I wanna shoot this building with one of my vintage box-cameras...

Danke for the link and the ideas...(I added you as a friend on Flikr too) Next sunny day I will bring my camera and try a couple shots I have in mind now.

I also need to shoot all of my old vintage cameras. I have a bunch that I want to sell to get more lenses.

I don't know if I will like fisheye but I am willing to give it a try. The 15mm rectilinear is a bit hard to work under the sun. A 16mm f3.5 (K) non-ai is coming my way. I cannot find a conversion kit for it so looks like I will have to make the mod myself. I don't like to mess with the original ring though. The lens is expensive and it would be nice to have the option to go back to the original ring. I'll have to make a choice...



I have an extra orginial ring that you can have if you need it.

RATS, forgot to change the lens data, all shot with the 85 f/1.4




Nice series Laura. Quite a pile of white stuff!

Neat looking building and very nice capture by you. Definately a challange to get the composition right. Well done. What is the building used for?

I work on a junior college campus, the building is the new IT building I believe. I had walked by the building for a week looking at it and finally brought in my camera when the sky wasn't gray and scary. Thanks for the compliment.

Sunny day here so I went out to see what the snow has not covered. Taken with 105 2.5 wide open. Thanks for looking.

Santa was kind enough to drop a copy of silver efex pro2 down the chimney and I've been working on learning this Lightroom plug-in. Here are a few test images. Any comments or suggestions for improvement from the b&w conversion pros on the forum would be much appreciated.

Thanks, Jeff

I do not know much about b&w conversions to be much help, but I really like the third image of the pelicans in flight. Nice contrast and out of focus area.
