Thanks David and Leighton.

One more with micro 168/4.5 (in fact 252mm because DX body):

Mother Shield Bug and dozens of her children with "Micro-Nikkor 168mm f/4.5" by labecoaves, on Flickr


D7000 + TC16A teleconverter + Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 AI-S [= 168mm f/4.5], hand held, D7000 flash with diffuser, ISO 500, f/16 at 1/60s. ~35% cropped.
On a DX camera this combo delivers a 252mm equivalent lens, with good working distance to avoid frightening these small creatures.

Congrats to Jeff (Foggy14), shot with the venerable 105 f2.5 AI-s.

Happy New Year Everyone!

Jose, thank you for the micro Nikkor comparisons. I have been tempted to get the 105 2.8 micro to replace my 55 2.8 (a bit longer working distance). Do you know how the bokeh compares between the 105 2.5 and 2.8? Your macros have been awesome.

Ray (FL), nice flower images. Can I interest you in some snow?

Georg, nice fireworks with the pce lens.

Monty, I would hate to be the electrician that had to work on those meters. Nice images.

Reagan, the Chevy is looking good! Like the effect.

John, thank you for the comment.

Ben, I like the man staring at you from afar.

Ronny, your shepard is very photogenic.

Philippe, I like the woman with her bike in the park. Nice effect with the pce. Was a copy of this lens under your Christmas tree?

A few more from the D600 + 24mm f/2.8 AI combo. Pretty much all shot at f/11 using the tripod. Took these a mile or two north of Sonoita AZ. There was 4" of snow over the whole area about 8 hours before this.

Scott - Very nice set, I like the second and last one the best. That last one is a type of shot I've wanted to do for a long time but haven't. One of these days I'll attempt it if I can find enough traffic around here to do it!

John - Beautiful light in these. The second one is outstanding! I've heard the light out there is really nice, you've just proved it!

Happy New Year!

Leighton, Georg, Ray, Monty, Peter and Jose, thanks for the comments on the aquarium shots. My hit rate was embarrassingly low, but it was fun shooting there. Peter, I looked up the National Geo article you mentioned and it's very interesting. The guys in Roatan who are training sharks to eat the invasive lionfish are pretty brave.

Rafael, nice job capturing our "little" fireworks faux pas last summer. Who needs a half hour fireworks show when you can see them all in 10 seconds?

Ray, gorgeous flowers!

Monty, "Meters and Ice" and "Cold, but smilin'" are great photos.

Georg, beautiful colors and detail in your late night fireworks pano.

Reagan, love the back lit SS!

Ben, I really like your "Surry Hills" shot. The combination of the checker board floor, the stacked tables and the glass "border" between the busy sidewalk and the quiet restaurant is a really nice composition.

Jose, love the small shield bug photo!

Leighton, terrific b&w's. The f11 shot of the fence shadow on the snow is really impressive.

Scott, beautiful winter shots. I like all three.

John, love the agave shots!

John - amazing shots from Arizona, just stunning light.

Leighton - the second of your Nikki B&W's is really cool.

Monty - love the shot of the cold postie.

Ben - I like the shot of the empty cafe

Reagan - nice car, the photo suits it.

Jose - the pic of the bus hiding from the rain is brilliant.

Georg - love your fireworks shot (and the setup of the 3 tripods)

Jeff - well done on your win.

Scott - Winter's looking good where you are.

Lots of other great pics! Sorry if I've missed anyone.

Oh yeah - Happy 2013 everyone.

Thanks Scott, Jeff, Mark.

Scott - love the time exposure. I tried to do it on New Year's Eve with the fireworks but it didn't work.
