Thanks Mark, Reagan, Ray, Scott, and Leighton.

I don't consider myself to be that good of a photographer - I just am good enough to take some OK images of a beautiful place I am lucky enough to live in.

If you want to see some great images of the Pacific North West head over to the Landscape forum and there are some guys that live around here that are WAAY better than I.

Reagan - you really want to replace the 50mm f 1.8 - it's such a nice lens?

Town Hall steps by benmorgan28, on Flickr


Ben - Nice series. I think the PCE's are tough to use and if I were in hypercritical mode, Customs House looks to me as if it's bigger at the top than the bottom. But that's an observation only.

But, talking of bottoms, I'm sure Reagan would have had a looooooong lens at the town hall steps

Hi gang, I'm getting back in the saddle after a "little" retina repair. Beautiful photos posted over the past week, too many to comment individually, but I wanted to highlight the great snow shots from John, Scott and Georg. I've always found snow to be a tough subject and you guys are really nailing it.

Curtis, gorgeous beach series. Ray, beautiful birds and Leighton I love your shot of the artist's painting of Barbara's photo of the lambs!

Peter, thanks for your comment on the WA. I appreciate it!

Thanks Jeff, I hope you're on your way to a full recovery. I've loved your recent assignment entries.

Like the first one Peter. If you're thinking about a D7000, I'd wait until next week, Nikon may announce the replacement for that camera. Just for the record though, the D7000 is a great camera!

I have tried so many camera bags over the years and found that to carry all of the lenses that I wanted it was always so big and wide that I hated lugging it around. I think that I have finally found one to meet my needs in this Nikon promo bag that were given away with D800's. It is narrow, only 5 inches. Deep enough for my 300mm 4.5 and wide enough to carry with a little planning, 5 lenses plus one on the camera.
Left to right - 300mm 4.5, 24mm2.8, 16mm 3.5 and 50mm 1.4 under my 85mm 1.4 PLUS my 35mm 1.4 on my camera. It has a pouch on the back for a tablet or small notebook and a pouch on the front for lens hoods, filters, and a teleconverter - WOW. The kicker is that I got it for $30 shipped!

Playing with the wifes balls. The mercury glass ones that is. Impossible to take a picture of one without a reflection unless you take it with the hangar in the middle. 35-70mm 3.5 AI with a PK-12

Don't know whether to damn Phillippe - or thank him. He forced me to buy the 24mm PCE then he returned it and moved on....and here I am still stuck on it.

Ben, are those HDR ?
the color and sharpness are extreme and I like them
Something different from you

Reagan


No Reagan, they're not HDR (lol - like Peter said - I thought you'd be more interested in the Town Hall steps).

Yes, Leighton - I did a bit a bit of mucking around in post. It doesn't look it - but it was mostly overcast yesterday - and I wanted to bring the light up. They are sharp aren't they - that's not me - that"s that lens. Phillippe once said it renders like a zeiss - and he's right. It is amazingly sharp and it resolves all the details for a camera like the D800E. Also has great colour.

Yes, Peter, the top of Customs House is bigger than the bottom - my fault. I was squatting on the ground and I shifted the lens up full to get the top of people's heads - but it meant that it was too much for the buildings (btw well spotted).

Which 300mm did you use?

Couple of shots from last week. The flower has nothing done other than a hybrid high-pass filter on the main flower. The rest is out of the camera. The second of the car, I played with a little bit as far as color goes, but it is also out of the camera. As always, C&C please. Trying SO hard to get it right in camera.

Series E 50mm (flower) and Series E 28mm (car)
