Series E 28mm... Took this shot intending it to be in B/W. Thoughts?

PERFECT!
Love the symmetry
The horizontal and vertical lines offset my the arrow!
Oh yes, b/w is first rate!

Thank you all for your kind comments on my concert series. Now for something completely different: three shots with the 20mm/3.5 and one with the 28mm/3.5 PC (unshifted). Shots taken a week ago during a walk with my wife passing Durgerdam, just north of Amsterdam. My first outing with the shift lens; it was freezing cold and I didn't want my wife to put up with me figuring out how the shift works.

Thanks everyone for your great comments about me. Much appreciated
No MF lenses are sold yet.

Who knows, I may keep everything. Although my wife would have a HUGE fit

The more I use the 28-45 4.5 the more I like this lens. Some more examples from the West Coast

My copy of the 28-45mm is very sharp on the D800 with very unique look. Your photos will make me use it more. The lens is light compared to the 25-50mm and it is the best built zoom ever.

Rafael and Peter you guys are lucky. My 28-45 was a dog. It was my first 72mm zoom. When Peter said he was getting one I really was hoping it would not disappoint him,. Obviously it has not.

Fasnacht hit Winterthur today and with it the traditional Guggenmusik parade.

All taken with the 180mm and the 35-70mm which was a very handy lens in the circumstances.




Nice series Mark. Your MF work with moving subjects is very good.

Thanks for the compliments for the B/W... I am starting to understand how to previsualize images into black and white. You folks are rubbing off on me, I have grown so much as a photographer since finding you all.

Cold and snowy here too....

Mark - excellent images from Faschtnacht.

Kevin - congrats on making a parking garage photogenic. Well done with the b&w and the pano.

Paul - I like #3 best in the series

Craig - nice set

Scott - yet more snow! I like them but aren't you guys fed up yet?

Chuong - tack sharp rust. Very nice.
