Phillippe - please go back to the 28 2.9 - I feel NMFAS eating away

Georg - more excellent images (see note to Phillippe above!). Also your deication at midnight deserved the hot coffee - well done!

Jose - very nice use of your lenses - you always have very interesting combinations that encourage experimentation

Dylan - 12800 iso!! Amazing!

Jeff - gtreat images from the aquarium - did you see the NG story on Lion Fish being a real eco threat in the Caribbean and how, properly prepared, they are good to eat?

Ray - more stunners up to your usual immaculate standard

Monty - Georg has said it all +1

Hey all,

My card reader just bit the dust. Anyone like to suggest one for an internal fit?

Thanks Alan!

Leighton, I'd say skip the internal and just go with a USB 3.0 external one, Sandisk and Lexar ones are good. Daughter just got a new laptop and there are plenty of tech support issues going on right now..... MOM.. help me!


Thanks Laura, but you were a day late and a dollar short as they say.

Monty, I don't know how you even go outside in weather like that

I know this photo has all kinds of things wrong with it but I like it anyway






Reagan

Very nice shot Reagan, I love the processing of it.

I've spend the midnight-hours with 3 Nikons, 3 tripods and my battered Stanley full of hot, strong Coffee at the local river and tried to capture the fireworks on the other river-side.
There's no "official", big firework here for financial reasons, but the locals tried their best to step into the breach and banged up my old hometown like there's no tomorrow ;-)
I've felt like a piano-player hammering the 3 remote-controls...
Here's a tilted fireworks-shot, taken a bit after midnight. I like the effect, but it would work better on a professional, higher firework:

D3s, PC 85/2.8 at f/5.3 (the effective aperture is recorded with these lenses), 8seconds at ISO200



It might not have been a huge fireworks display, but it's a beautiful image!

Thanks Peter for the words. I am crazy enough to experiment with these weird combos

Jeff, impressive aquarium work; I think the aquarium glass was truly clean;

Ray, another classy flower captures with the 85/1.4;

Monty, liked your B&W winter shots;

Georg, beautiful fireworks from Germany;

Ronny, another beautiful dog portrait;

Philippe, another good use of the PC lens.

I like the second one as it is bleak with the flying bird with no where to go. Great photo to tug the emotions.
