Thanks Guys
Nice flower shot Georg

Thanks everyone for the critique...very constructive

1. 180f2.8 --- my friend actually took the picture. I think that she is a natural at composition: hope it's not against the rules to post a pic I didn't take.

2. 300f4.5 --- one legged Ibis (didn't notice he had only one leg until post processing

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.

So it is Mark

Philippe, first class award for the picture of the monk(?)

Thanks for the kind comments on the rust pics, hope I don't miss anyone (Leighton, Peter, Mark, Rafael, Scott)

Peter, the curves are due to some distortion from the lens, but mainly due to the fact that I had a fairly wide angle lens (20mm) not pointed level along the lens axis.

Jammy, good lighting and capture on the Ibis, I prefer the single Ibis picture myself.

Georg, the smaller rail is likely what is known as narrow gauge railroad, they are still pulled by machines, just smaller machines. And by the way, a superb effort on the rose for a first timer in focus stacking. I have not dared to share any of my focus stacking work just yet.

and lastly Kevin, way to show off that Series E 28mm.

One more from this past Saturday. Not quite sure what to make of this, but it looked interesting after some cropping, B+W conversion, and sliding around some of the tone controls. Feel free to comment, good, bad or otherwise.
200mm f4 AI

Edited - replaced original image post, liked this treatment better.

Tony - You had to go and rub it in, didn't you?

Leighton - you know it! Not how I've ever spent my holiday before but I HIGHLY recommend it! Great job with Nikki, I'm bummed my time with her is done!

And I love the 'buddies' shot! My dog is clearly a city dog, whenever we've been at a farm or petting zoo he goes nuts around goats and sheep...

Sam - I really like the butterfly larve shots, the second one in particular is excellent. I'm fascinated by that 200/4 macro!

Ben - thanks for the reply on the t/s lenses, I'm looking forward to seeing more examples of your experiments!

Georg - thanks for the comment on the Red Stripe shot! That tilted 85/2.8 shot of the garden gate is pretty trippy, kind of dream-like.

MarkdV - nice macro/product setup and great results!

Peter - Nothing wrong with BW but I didn't see much need for it in Jamaica! I've got some b/w coming though. Subtle tones are sometimes soothing!

Ray - the b/w small rapids shot looks great. I can see it up on the wall over my couch!

Another shot from last week's early bikeride... airplane taking off from DCA with the Capitol Dome in the background. D600 and 105/2.5 AI-s. The second one is the moonlight on the water in Jamaica also with the 105/2.5.

Came into work today to a small fire in the main motor of one of the presses. Always scary when that happens. (Yes, it has happened before.) Thankfully it was just buildup inside that had caught fire and after being serviced, we were able to get back to printing.

Now off to catch up on the 10 pages I missed over the weekend!

Leighton, I love "Modern Art" and the story behind it. "Barbara and the Ewe Lamb" is a very special, museum quality photograph. Congrats!

Mark, really nice shots from St. Gallen. Your super expensive ;-) macro setup is paying dividends. Beautiful shots and I especially like how you composed the Tissot watch shots.

Ray, I really like the old engine detail shots with the trusty 105mm. "Small Rapids" is a terrific photo.

dj john, nice colors and composition on your stone wall shot.

William, your fiancÚ sure makes that "cheap" lens look good. Nice capture!

Kevin, great reverse macros.

Tony D, congrats on your recognition! That's a beautiful photo.

Mike, love the aurora shots. Minus 25? You deserve an award!

Ben, the high heel shot is a classic.

Georg, the playground thingie shots in the snow evoke childhood memories. Well done!

Ronny, really nice work on the hanging light.

Philippe. very nice self portrait. The colors and textures of the tiles and wood are terrific.

Rafael and Peter, thanks for your comments on the surf shot.

Rafael, great shots from the Escondido Western Union station. You really captured the venue's old time feel.

Sam, that black swallowtail sure is an eye catcher. Nice shots!

Jose, simply beautiful bird shots.

Jammy, very nice shots from Green Cay.

Snow and sun - hurray! I've shot this with the lens stuck in a railing and could kick myself for cutting off the lower part of the jetty :-(

Georg, you are on fire lately. Some really beautiful stuff. These were a couple of my favorites. I stared at the door picture for quite awhile. Thank you for sharing!

I did a version of this with the zeiss 35mm f2 that I posted in the zeiss thread because it reminded me of something Phillippe would take.
