WOW, great price for that lens in such condition Reagan.

I am officially joining the fisheye club. Here is my 16mm f3.5 AI'd. I just took about 1hr this morning to make it AI.
Mounted on my D700 just fine now. I will have some images from it soon.









Congrats Chuong!
I'm waiting to see your photos with this lens.

Leighton - love that street shot. Haven't seen nikki look so sharp in ages.

Mark - thanks for your concern - but I live in the inner city - we're lucky, no bushfires. It hasn't been that hot in Sydney - but it's cloudy most days - the grey skies keep the heat at bay but it's killing my photography.

Really good pics and comments the past few pages.

Jose - amazing work with the 105 and the D7000. Also superb thrush!

Tony - the industrial images are very good

Leighton - the Wilson house pics are great and the sunset is excellent

Tony - those shots with Nikki pop, they must go on the blog

Laura - the pup has to be called Winston - the face really is familiar!

Jeff - the B&W's are masterful

Josh - lovely kids - I'm sure you're glad to be home

Ronny - more interesting street pics - well seen

Phillippe - do you prefer the 24 PCE's blur to the 28mm bokeh? I'm a little undecided.

Paul - nice night shots. I first thought the 2nd was through a glass of Amstel

Ben - good shooting with the 80-200 - good use of the PCE too in all shots

Kevin - very good stitch

Chin - masterful shot of Brisbane

Some shots from Bregenz, with the 35-70mm excel the seagulls which was the 105mm. Miserable weather, even the ducks were unhappy. Still, who can be sad with such great lenses to play with.

Thanks you Ronny, Ben and Peter!

Ronny - Love the B&W with the old gentleman. Good shadow work.

Ray - If I didn't already have this one...

Chuong - Congrats, did you use a file or a dremel tool?

Jose - Beautiful color with these flowers, thanks for sharing them.

Mark - Nice set, I believe I like the first one best. Nice profile image too!

I was cleaning up some files from my Paris 2011 trip and though I'd post some of them here for your enjoyment.

Joshua, very nice kid-portraits! Good to know that the legendary 55/3.5 performs so well with a DX-sensor. Flickr works well for me as a file-host to embed pictures.

Tony, nice "printing abstract"!

Mark, wow, good eyes ;-) And: great set from Bregenz.

Ronny, I like your shots of the walking elders (too slow for a nice panning shot? ;-)

Reagan, good luck! I hope your future gear will work well in your hands (specs are one thing, ergonomics and personal preferences another).

Chuong, congrats to your 16/3.5! I still have the outstanding picture of your daughter on the stairs in my mind (this one was done with the 15/3.5, if memory serves). So any superwide seems to be a natural choice for you.

Jose, beautiful flower-shot!

Anthony, very nice set from Paris! My fav is the "bad hair day".

Santa was kind enough to drop a copy of silver efex pro2 down the chimney and I've been working on learning this Lightroom plug-in. Here are a few test images. Any comments or suggestions for improvement from the b&w conversion pros on the forum would be much appreciated.

Thanks, Jeff



Jeff, beautiful B&W's, especially the Pelicans. I've used SEP a little, and the thing I like best about it is the structure slider. It sort of adds clarity without changing any tones. There's some great tutorials on-line that can help as well.


The structures-slider can be used for taming/enhancing background highlights/bokeh. It took me a while to get familiar with SEP, but now I love it. The control-points work very well for local adjustments.

A "like" from me for the sunset street shot from Leighton.

Laura, that pile of snow was well seen and shot. I like the lines of the snow pile. Free drinks sign was hilarious!

Kevin, ouch, that Noct is quite expensive ;-)

Yikes, I always knew they were expensive, did not know how expensive till I clicked on the link!

Jeff, the "better lucky than good" pelicans is an attention grabber, nice job!

I must be too new around here to have interacted with you Josh, but welcome home and thanks for your service.

Congrats on that 16mm Chuong

Mark, nice capture on the "lining up" shot.

It's still gray and cold here, time to post a colorful and quite lively (in terms of bokeh) snap taken on a sunny November day:

Thank you Georg, Peter, Jeff and Ray for your comments on my Noct shots.
Chuong, enjoy your fisheye.
Leighton, beautiful sunset street shot.
Jose, I like your really sharp thrush and flower shots.
Scott, can't say anything about the Silver Effects, but the pelicans came out great.

Three from Thursday, weather is expected to start freezing, so we may be skating here next week.

looking at those, I thought of some old street shots I took in Nice in 1986 with the old F3 on film

all on F3HP on Ektachrome, I think, scanned with the CoolScan 4000 ED

50mm f1.8 AI






Self portrait, 50mm f1.8 AI






28mm f2.8 AI - the French version of the "Boat House"

OK, OK, will SOMEBODY please post a less than stellar pic, so that I will not be embarrassed to post my pics!!

The manual glass seems to not be able to create a bad pic.

Jose, the water droplets really make this one! Well done.

Thank you for the comment on the red berries.
