I also was lucky enough to come across a bald eagle. It certainly was a great day even though the rain put an end to my hopes of using the 35mm 1.4 for some sunset shots



Wonderful bird images Ray! You were able to get quite close.

Thank you Georg. The last time I shot the owls I was using the Canon 1DMKII so I can't post them here but they are in this folder on Zenfolio

Ray, very nice shots of the Owls! Love these birds! Great that you're stepping into the breach* while Jose is looking after Pompeii ;-)
*) I really like your bird-pictures in general - I just can't remember seeing an owl-shot out of your hands.

Thank you Americo, Reagan and Scott. Actually Scott the have the eagles fenced off because of the nest so I really needed at least a 600mm F4 to really reach them

Thank you Tony, Curtis, Kevin, Leighton, Reagan, and Georg for your comments. A couple of you asked if they were color or b&w images. They were taken on a overcast day with some light snow falling. The images are full color straight out of the camera.

These two were taken 24 hours apart. Both are full color straight out of the camera. One with overcast sky and the other in bright morning sunlight. Even in the sunlight image the evergreens do not have much color. Both taken with the 28 2.8 ais (The exif data is incorrect on the second image. Forgot to set the lens info.). Thanks for looking.

Very nice work Scott I love the color and shadows of the second one!

Some very nice photos just on this page, Scott, Ray, Curtis and Americo. Have to dig back several more pages to see what all I missed in the last few days.

Well in air travels and travails I managed to do a bit of photography. The most interesting was the museum at Milwaukee's General Mitchell airport (What a concept, something other than shops and food at an aiport! ). Quite a bit of history in that little museum. I found out that this same General Mitchell's name was used for the B-25 Mitchell bomber. I associate that plane with the Doolittle raid of Tokyo.

Very interesting history of this general who seemed to be ahead of the times but didn't let that faze him. The results are usually not pretty. There was also history and model of a very early version of Milwaukee's airport. The last picture is a depiction of a Martin bomber demonstrating bombing at sea using a captured German ship in 1921.

All with the 35 f2 OC.

is there a better way to organize this threat? this threat has over 2.5k of posts.

Yes, it's a major pain to search for someone's posts in some useful way as well as trying to find a particular image.

This thread is almost a living, breathing entity and it evolves day by day as the participants learn and explore the world of Nikon Manual Focus lenses. It can't be done any other way here, although I wish it had its own search engine. Jump on the wagon, grab one of these lenses with a Nikon camera and help us Foto Dude!

Well, I think there are ways to improve the viewing of threads:
- Condensed views showing many entries per page with smaller thumbnails of images so that you can quickly scan for images of interest instead of having to go through many many pages and full resolution images to find something
- Ability to search a specific thread for all entries by a specific person
- Ability to specify a range of dates to search over
- etc., etc.

BTW, we had this exact discussion a few months ago on the inability to go back and look at posts and discussions in any structured way, and did not come up with any solution. Don't know if Fred can add some more abilities to these threads.

Here's a few more from Milwaukee's aiport museum, these with the 85 1.4 AIS. The last two were among a collection of WW2 models. No Heinkels, Georg, but I thought this Zerstorer was interesting. The B-25 has more meaning to me now having read the history of the man for which it is named.

In the spirit of Valentine's Day, Ganahl changed their sign this week.

Samy I love the first shot of the Ozark Airlines. I remember them from my days in College in Missouri.
Tony that's nicely said!

Inspired by John I've tried my old 135/3.5 Ai this late afternoon:

This looks awesome Georg! I can't see any flare either, which is impressive. Is this lens coated?

And lastly what does one do after the airline cancels the flight after changing its time 5 times; and one ends up in a hotel near the airport and can't sleep??

Well look out the room balcony and take a photo of whatever's out there!

Oh it has flare (you can see it under the sun), it just doesn't have any ghosting. Yes the 135/3.5 AI is coated - multi-coated for all AI versions I believe.

Thanks Ray, Ozark Airlines sounds like something from the midwest. Nowadays they are all mixed up. Baltimore's the hub for Southwest for some reason.

And Tony, that sign is nicely captured against the dark background!!

Google is the answer.

Put that in Google's search window, and wala!
