Welcome back Josh
Hey everyone! Been gone from here for a long time (deployment to Afghanistan). Finally got home and settled down and shot a few of the kids with my 55/3.5 Micro on my D3000...
Gotta get my Upload/Sell membership renewed soon, pardon the links please...
Jeff, nice pelican shot. Definitely a nice happy accident
Tony, yup, I can see that one arm blurred there too.
This is just a side view, looking into the delivery of one of the presses. I was trying to get the motion of the grippers, but at 18,000 sheets per hour, they aren't going to be much more than a blur anyway!

I'm half tempted to go see what the pile looks like on Sunday, since it's supposed to be near or at a record breaking temp today (62°F) and it's been raining pretty good.
Thanks all for the comments!
Leighton - I really liked your street sunset. I like the fact that you aren't centered on the street so you can see the storefronts.
Scott - Great color on the berries.
Jeff - I like the washed out look on the surfer.
Laura - All I saw on your sign was Free Naked Ladies! Cool shot with the snow.
Thanks Mark, no, no cars under that pile, they had the luck this time that snow happened on break. I started shooting and the dog's owner had her attention, but as soon as that shutter started making noise, I had her rapt attention for sure
Very amusing shot Laura. Love the small pile of snow as well, I hope your car isn't under it. I like the dog's expression in the second of the dog shots too.
Ronny, Nice shots of the older folks getting some exercise.

Wow Reagan, you were having so much fun with it too. I see that sold, too.
Again I am selling My 180 2.8 ais
I have already sold my D700 so I am looking again
Have narrowed it down to about 7 cameras 3 of which are nikons
If anyone is shopping $275 PP and shipped thats what I paid for it
It is in EX condition
I won't put it on the board until tonight
like to keep it on this board and comes with a Nikon NC filter
The filter will be extra tonight but people here can ignore that
I have to catch up on about the last 10 pages
Congrats, Chuong, it is a nice lens
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.
Josh, Make sure that wherever you're hosting them, that your URL ends in .jpg
Thanks for the kind words everyone! It sure is good to be back! Going out around my hometown today with the family so hopefully I'll get some good shots to share with you...any way I can embed my photos until i get my sell/upload membership?
Jose, I bet you could print this large and sell lots of prints. fantastic!
Tiny flowers (the bunch hardly reach 1 cm in diameter) after rain; taken with Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 ais + PN-11 tube.

D7000 + PN-11 + 105mm f/2.8 Ai-S hand held, buit in flash + diffuser, ISO 400, f/11 at 1/60s, ~ 15% crop.
Peter, no, the pup is called Guinness, and she really loved checking out all the cat smells on me
Laura - the pup has to be called Winston - the face really is familiar!
Mark, I really love old churches like this one, and the seagulls shot is great!
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 Ray! I almost didn't stop at that sign but glad I did.
Laura, that pile of snow was well seen and shot. I like the lines of the snow pile. Free drinks sign was hilarious!
Paul, really love the pier shot!

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.

Keeping her in my prayers, Americo.
Today is my daughters last day of chemo, the chemical known as bleomician bleo? We are so relived that everything has gone well so far, thank God! Thank you everyone for your prayers and kind words of support!! Pray this will be her last treatment for life, and for those people fighting and to those searching for a way to kick cancers pardon my words, ASS!!
Lovely, Chuong, love how the toys are all lined up there too Thinking of parting with my 16 f/2.8 in favor of the Rokinon 8mm HD though, since I've got the 16mm f/3.5
Jose, that is a lovely flower shot.
Leighton, I only used filing tools. I was afraid that I can damage it with the power tool. That's why it took me almost 1hr to get it done.
Georg, thanks. Yes, that image of her on the stairs was from the 15mm. I still keep that lens.
Ray and Paul, thanks. Great shots on your last post, Paul. I like the first one the most.
Here is a quick shot from my 16mm f3.5. My daughter wanting to be Rapunzel princess.
Last (big) update from Nikki's time in DC. Sorry for the long tail on getting these out the door... 8 more shots from Chihuly. If you ever get the opportunity I do recommend checking out his exhibits they are a photographers playground. All of the venue's I've been at have not allowed tripods but they are pretty well lit and you can crank the ISO to get your shutter speed. I'll bet some have a specific 'photographers day' that let you bring the tripod. Anyway, enjoy and TGIF!

Not sure, Jose, but at KEH, here's a chrome knob one:
Hi guys, if possible I need a little help from the PC experts on here
I have a rare offering here in Brazil: a guy selling his 35mm f/2.8 PC Nikkor (last batch - black knob - production after 1980's); I managed to convince him to give a discont at R$ 1.000,00 (~US$ 465.00) including shipping and insurance.
Is this a good price? ( I have found it around US 700.00 on ebay!) Have you experienced this lens?
