Roy, I like the locomotive valve shot. Where is this steam engine housed?

Scott


Thanks Scott. It's located on abandoned tracks in the town of Grand Rapids, Ohio. The first pic in that set shows the setting that the engine is located in.

A huge amount of great images in this thread that make my humble efforts pale by comparison. Lots to learn.

All with the D800 and 20mm f3.5 AI.


Nice shots Ray. And as you have just shows, Nikon shooters are on the level, it's just the rest of the world is crooked.

Some more images taken today. I don't wanna flood this thread, I'm just happy to see some snow and sun after long weeks of rain and deep grey skies;-)


The 180/2.8ED on a D7000, cropped a wee bit - it's to long for a crop-sensor body, even in the european hockey rinks (broader than the north-american rinks). Maybe I'll try the 135/2 Ais next time...



no Georg - keep em coming. Love the snow shots. Very interesting to see how the 85PC behaves too - creates a very strong miniature effect. I know how you feel - we're in the middle of summer and it's been deep grey skies for almost 2 weeks.

Jose - in awe of your bird shots.

WOW. So many great images to look at! Thanks all. It will be a nonproductive Monday at work tomorrow.

I purchased Reagan's 180f2.8 lens, and it is simply a great lens, and wonderful transaction. However, I didn't get much use from that lens, and used instead 300f4.5 Ai on D40 for reach, which was more appropriate for the shooting conditions at Green Cay:


I like this of the two egrets by Macrudite, on Flickr

I did not use a tripod, even though I had one and could have used it. The image might have been a tad sharper. C/C is welcomed.

Thanks to all for posting such great images. Here's a recent favorite of mine with the Ai-S 105/2.5 at f2.8.

cheers

(The D800 is a waste of pixels and bytes for this type of photography)

Rafael, nice train station images. Where is this located?

Ray, you just proved that the lens does not matter, the photog does, all lenses made beautiful photos. Also, keep the rust coming.

Jeff, the photo of your son surfing the large chop brings precious memories to me, as I was there long ago. The cycle of life and a beautiful image.

John, voightlander? shame on you

Georg, what beautiful architechtural winter images. Your 180mm focusing will loosen in summer.

Leighton, love alpenglow over the chicken coop.

Mark, Holy shots indeed.

Ray, mighty steam engine perspective.

DJJohn, nice rocks.

William, great 135 perspective

Kevin, nice macro rocks.

Tony, a river long sunset.

Mike, just beautiful aurora.

Ronny, your composition makes the day to day extraordinary.

Leighton, impresionistic two second painting, the luck of the shutter.

Sam, great color matching caterpillar.

Philippe, wonderful icon and prayer image, what is in the center?

Jammy, egrets or Ibises?

Far too modest - most of us have light at this time of the year

Ben - nice set from Sydney - underlines what a great lens the 105 2.5 is

Georg - the B&W is lovely and moody

Ray - the mill is terrific

Phillippe - aka "The Shadow" (my age group will understand)
BTW is the image on p2464 you wearing a hoodie? Nice pics all.

Tony - Jamaica looks good but what's wrong with black and white?

Leighton - Mary's lamb had a "fleece as white as snow" so what's with the black sheep? Nice pic

Rafael - I like the hi tech shot

Sam - pretty caterpillar

Jose - three more beauties

Georg - I like the snow images. The goalie is also excellent. Wouldn't the 105 be perfect for ice hockey?

Ronny - more exceelnt shots - great focus and separation. Do you use any special pp sharpening technique?

Mark - nice setup! Mine is very similar but based on a 6 bottle wine box so it came in way below your cost! I also use radio triggered SB 26 or 28 flashes that I picked up off our local equivalent of ebay. Nice images too!

Ray - good rust! Aren't the curves due to the wide angle lens?

Jammy - lovely ibis image. Did you use a separate light meter, the Sunny 16 rule or guess the exposure? Whatever you did it was well done.You probably know that you can use pre ai lenses with the D40 and they are significantly cheaper than the Ai and Ais versions.

Steven - nice image of the (your?) boy

Gonna take me awhile to go through all the posts!
Before I forget though, Leighton, I've a friend who does ICM photography:

There's a few groups on flickr, very nice, soothing, pleasing images
Thought yours was executed like a pro! I've tried them before, it's tough to get right

Thank you Ray, Mark, Rafael, Peter and Chin!

Peter - About the black lamb...all the lambs of this particular breed (Suffolk) come out black, and then turn white gradually after around 3 or 4 months old.

Ray, you don't have to apologize to me anymore about those "curvy" lines, I think I'm over it! Love the rust shots!
