Dylan - beautiful duck and great use of the lens

Ray - thank you - these cows are wild and I gave them a wide berth

Ron - it would be a pleasure to meet you but I don't think I can help the Eagles

Georg - thanks. There a quite a few folders around in "antique" shops but fitting the MF glass is a problem

Samy - I've really enjoyed the Maryland images which remind me of a great weekend in and around Chestertown and further south.

Reagan - worth staying up for!

Laura - you are a master "craftsperson" (I hate PC ) and it would be fun to have a convention in Philly. Dinner at the Victor Cafe where the waiters are all music students who sing opera between courses would be a great start!

Laura I really like this one the best






Agreed, this one is my favorite as well. I love the ole DC-3/C-47. I used to have a radio controlled version of this plane, was my favorite of all my warbirds.

Kevin that plane is not a DC3/ Dakota C47.
It looks like a Lockheed C-60 Lodestar

Philippe, you are correct.
The DC3 has a lot more fairing at the wing root where it mates with the fuselage.

Just my 7dollars and 47 cents worth.

So it is! Good eye! I missed that on the first look.

The DC-3 was my first thought too but looked up the Lockheed C-60 Lodestar and the other difference is the wheel assembly. The DC-3's wheel assembly is a bit analogous to the one on the Heinkel He-111. I have an He-111 model that I made from a kit a few years ago, sounds like it needs to model for me now

Peter, thanks, looked up Chestertown and that's beyond the bay and not too far from Bombay Hook wildlife refuge and the cargo plane museum at Dover in Delaware. Laura's image of the Lodestar was making me think of the trip to those places last summer. And oh yeah, nice to have the historic context along with your excellent cattle shots.

Reagan, nice Christmas displays, not that many around here yet. Ben's in a funk? I felt in a rut too and that's what made me get out of my comfort zone and try some street images recently.

Dylan, beautiful duck and duckling shot, liked how you used narrow depth of field in that one.

Georg, snow and Santas already?? Nice shots and I like the red color, but doesn't your surgeon general have a warning for smoking santas?

Paul, that hole in the sky is ominous, at least that's what it conveys to me, very nicely captured.

Just saw Ben's self image in the rear view mirror. Looks like it needs some complex distortion correction in Photoshop or Lightroom or something Fun picture Ben!

Ron, cool pano of Philly!

Kenny, very nice lion and lioness portraits at Forth Worth zoo with the 400 5.6.

Ian, I liked the image of that inn with the imposing hills behind it.

Last Saturday I went to a church wedding and had with me only the 180mmf2.8 AIS. After the ceremony during the lunch reception there was a heavy downpour and I found some kids having fun in the rain. This was more entertaining than the wedding pictures.

In the following images you will see the page boy, liberated from his stifling black tie outfit letting down his hair.

....still in his white dress shirt, but sleeves rolled up for serious work:

I've been chomping at the bit for a good EVIL mirrorless system for a couple of months now. I was thinking a Fuji X-100 would be nice, but I didn't want the limitation of just the 35mm FL, even if it is my favorite FL. I was also thinking a Fuji XE-1 would be nice, but $2500 or so is a lot to spend for a system that still has some annoying little flaws, especially when I already own 2 very complete systems (645, FX/135).

Well, I have another new addition to the Nikon family. I just picked up a V1+10-30/VR as B&H has that kit for $299. I wouldn't have paid the original price for the V1, but having handled one in stores before, it was really tempting at $399, and too hard to pass up at the current price. For the price (especially if I get an FT1), that is a lot of capability for the price.

I'm currently in Amsterdam, and seeing as this is one of the most active threads in the Nikon forum I thought I could ask here.

Is anyone here familiar with Amsterdam and have any tips or pointers of places I have to visit? Or nice places to shoot? I went to a very nice Diane Arbus exhibition yesterday which was amazing! I haven't brought any MF Nikkors with me this time around, shame on me, but I've got some other nice stuff with me.

Any help much appreciated.

Anton.

PhilipJ: Really nice work on some of those architecture shots. A little heavy on the contrast sometimes but I like where you`re going with it. And great eye for symmetry.


Guilty as charged! Thanks! I've been really enjoying your work with the Noct too, and I think it's amazing you can shoot wide open as you do on film like that. What's your keeper rate?
