Already posing!!! PanPan or Take-out is my name suggestion for her.

Hi Laura! What about "Lost Soul" or "Prodi-gal"?




I vote for Bokeh

She looks like a little Rascal to me.


+1 Laura. She is a cutie! She is also lucky to have you.

Jeff, thank you for the comment on the cornfield image.

Here is an image that caught my eye. I liked the tree shadow play on the wall of the house. Taken with the 50 1.4 Ais at f5.6. Thanks for looking.

Samy it's great to see you. Great shot of the painted stork!
Bilal Very nice Bokeh on a great portrait!
Chin You have a real ability for those shots. You might consider offering your service to other show dog owners
Laura I have enjoyed your concert series shots, especially the woman playing the guitar! Not to mention Your lovely cats
Kevin I am glad to see you getting good use of the 80-200. Now I don't have to feel guilty about just letting it sit in my bag
Philip The flare shot is just wonderful. Good use of the 50mm 1.2
Jeff The train shot needs a frame in your house!
Monty I loved your Higgs shot a few pages back. I am sure that I wouldn't want to go back to a climate that has those temperatures even possible!!!!
Scott thank you and i enjoy looking at your shots that include snow

Oooooooo.... I like that one, especially since the other new cat's name is Neko, which is Japanese for cat. Thanks Peter!

Laura - a very nice set of pictures. Maybe "Margharita" (shortened to "Moggy") would be a good name for your cat since Moggy is British slang for a cat and the pizza assocaition fits too.

Thanks Kev, I've already had a cat named Rascal, and yes, he was definitely one, too, having snuck out the window once and disappeared for a week, and always trying to sneak out the front door. He was an orange tabby like Tom.

I got it as well, but of course I do it too, when other cameras are pointed my way

I get this a lot but usually it is when I am gonna buy something and the expression "talk to the hand" follows.


Nicely captured, Kev

Here is another shot from the 80-200mm. I think this little girl has an old soul. She was taking more care of her mom than her mom of her. Very good-natured and spoke very well for 5.




Hmmmmmm... Moggy Pan-Pan... that could work. She ate almost three cups of food in the first couple of hours she was here.

Thanks Reagan, what do you mean you have no camera, didn't you run out and buy a D600 after selling your D700 and testing out your friend's?

Hey Ray, Isn't the Plant City Srawberry Festival coming up soon

Just lurking with no camera
Great work everyone

Laura she looks like a "Meg" to me




Hi Mihai, not sure if that will work for her, since she's now found In a week, she'll be at the vet's to be spayed, like all my other cats have had done, she'll be far happier that way.

Nice work!

Love that last picture!


Love this shot, Chin, she looks so regal.

Tired from work today but after seeing her after her day at the groomers, I knew I had to pick up the camera. So cute, they put these tiny bands on her ears.
And I just love the character that these old MF nikkors have!
Was rushing to get out the door for dinner and went to get an AF lens to make things simpler (I know, right?) but thought, what the heck, just shoot what's on the camera
Wide open, it's super dreamy, plus she's oh-so-fluffy from grooming.
Left it as a low-contrast shot but you can see the detail in the in-focus areas

D700 + 35/2 AIS

Thanks Scott, she sure is a cutie. Right now, she's not too happy, cause she's in heat, and Tom still thinks he has what it takes... got a rude wakeup the other morning about 4am. Keeping her separated from everyone else for the time being.

Nice shot, Chin. The 35mm f2 wide open seems very nice.

As usual, kid stuff for me. 50mm f1.2 @2.8

Thanks everyone
Scott: She can hold a pose for ... well it depends on her mood and I suppose her hunger level/gluttony
Midway through the session, she grew tired of my wife dangling treats, gave her the squinty-eyed stare, and proceeded to simply lie down and sulk

Laura: Another vote for Bokeh Very steady hands! Have you changed your workflow recently? I must say your photos are incredibly sharp and the subjects pop

Ray: Beautiful work with Nikki. The second is fantastic, bold lines, colours and the shadow on the crucifix really brings it to prominence. I love how you corrected verticals for the tower

Took the day off because I'm not feeling well. Gonna drag myself back to the bed, ugh...

What about NIKKI?

Nikki Post 3

"Plant City's original name was Ichepucksassa after the Indian village that once occupied this territory. So much confusion was created with the spelling and pronunciation that the Irish postmaster renamed the village Cork, after his home city. In 1884, Henry B. Plant extended the South Florida Railroad into the town and one year later, when the town was incorporated, it was once again renamed this time in honor of Henry B. Plant."
Plant City is the crossing point of the north-south and east-west Florida railroads

The Downtown area of Plant City has been revitalized with beautiful parks. The same area that once was thriving with every sort of freight from all over the country is now a meeting place for the retired, middle aged and the young at heart.
