Tough day for Higgs today. First trip to the vet. Poked, prodded, temp taken, and a shot.

He and Rocky actually together today. Good hard play that lasted 5-10 minutes. Maybe they will get along!





Monty

Monty, Higgs is winning this cat guy over. What a great looking dog, and a beautiful photo!

Ben, Leighton, Georg, Ray - thank you.

Kevin - I love #1

Georg - it looks so cold..but a beautiful image

Ron - very nice portrait

Monty - yep summer comes late in Knysna but arrived properly yesterday! Nice image of the Power Tap - looks like it has a few too many cogs though? The spanner pic is also great.

Reagan - that is a very striking shot of the bridge - superb!

Ray (pb) - beautiful execution of the paperwok - not boring at all.

Are these the new wheels for your bike to go with the power thingy you just bought Monty?

Love this shot with the lights Alan. Sorry to hear about your families loss, but as you say life does move on and there is a new generation ready to grasp every opportunity (usually for mischief).

Mine is currently on my lap trying to slot my CF cards into an SD card reader, the silly sausage. I have shown him your pictures with strict instructions to up his cuteness factor to match.

Kind regards,
Mark

OK, here are my 12/12/12 submissions. One of them was even taken at 12:12:12pm Pacific time... Reverse Macro with the Series E 50mm 1.8. All images taken at ISO-100. I was MOST impressed with the amount of detail ISO-100 was able to grab. I was also impressed how long the f22 shots took (one of them took nearly 30 seconds!)

Mainly all of my favorite ornament. It is one of three (a set) that I bought in Prague when the Iron Curtain was still in effect. With the exchange rate, I think I spent a dime on all three ornaments. That is 24k Gold leaf on hand blown glass. I have been offered ridiculous sums for the set (highest was $300) but won't sell, ever. The teapot pictured here is about 2.5 inches tall...

First a combo image. First time I have tried this technique. This is a f/1.8 overlayed on an f/22 capture. I kept the sharp teapot and used the bokeh from the rest. I think it came out very well.


I think it came out very well as well, lovely shot and technique (and I imagine patience)!

This is Georgina, taken during a studio flash night at our camera club. I found the flashes too harsh so used just the modelling light.

Taken with the 50mm f1.2 on a Nikon FE-2 and Tri-X film. I got the veil off ebay so my pictures wouldn't look like those taken by everyone else that night.

Leighton, yes and no - I could have shot the same scene with a superwide as a vertical to get exactly the same perspective - just with a lot more snow in the foreground (lower half of the vertical shot).
The 28PC is well built and fairly compact. I have to get used to the aperture-mechanism.
I hope to find enough spare time to use this lens (and the 85PC too) a bit more in the coming weeks.

I took shots with the 14-24 one time that someone asked me to, and realized that I was cropping off loads of pixels to get rid of the unnecessary foreground. That's what had made me think of a PC lens.

The aperture mechanism is funky, but just a matter of getting used to. And it took me a bit to realize how to do the rotate function, you can combine that with the shift.

BTW, Leighton, do I sense an interest in the 28PC? <hint>Any time I go browsing ebay etc. there seem to be a good number of these out there. </hint>

Samy


NOOOOOOO!!!!!! I don't think.



I am. I was interested in what you said about it not making that much difference Georg.

I'm looking at the 24mm f3.5 PC....but I've got a yen for the 24mm f1.4 too.... so I don't know.....but the dilemma is made much simpler by not being to afford either.

I assume this limo is an American invention - it certainly turned heads down under.

lunch time snaps with the 50mm f1.8

Inspired by Kevin's macros and this fellow's use of his D70 ( http://zackarias.com/ ) in his portraits, I mounted my pre ai 50mm f2 Nikkor H lens on my D70 and played for a while - about a 10mm tube.

Even though it's dated now the D70 is still an amazing camera and I love the colour rendition. Exposure is a bit of trial and error but that's the beauty of digital

Gear - 1/10 s @ 1:1.2, ISO 200 (-0.7 EV) - full FX frame, MF 50mm 1:1,2 on Nikon D3


I got to correct myself: I own three MF lenses. Always forget about Mr. Fish... AIs 16mm 1:3.5 fish eye

Very nice. Getting to be summer "down there" isn't it?


Peter, I agree with Monty, fantastic work!

And for those interested in the lens Peter used, for a nice condition and good price copy, look at here:

First test of a new to me 28/3.5PC - sorry Samy, still no shot's from the remains of the former "Heinkel-Werke".
The weather yesterday was all grey - not really hazy, but dull and flat light and it was too cold to have fun with a new lens.

28/3.5 PC shifted all the way up if memory serves - f/11, 1/60sec at ISO400, vignetting added in post (silly me)


Georg, very nice image. I did not know your last name was Buchner and that you had your own ship!

Ray, paperwork is boring indeed, but for sure not your picture ;-)
Love the shallow DoF, the framing, the B&W-conversion - basically everything about this fine photograph!

You should. Keeps lines remarkably straight

Straight or bulging a bit up, so much fun!!! you need one Leighton.....

Rafael, beautiful examples of pictures taken with the 28PC!

Leighton - it works beautifully on (barn-) doors, hallways and gates too ;-)
