Lovely area Curtis especially the tree. San Francisco is on my bucket list

I spent a few hours at the high school today (spring strings concert), and since that is always a rather boring affair unless you are one of the participants, I brought some MF lenses and my D600 along. Low light all day, so I just turned it to auto-iso and fired away:

Starting out, all with the 20mm f3.5, handheld, set to auto-iso and f8

iso 360 f8 1/30s






iso 1100 f8 1/30s






close range - these critters are about 2-3" tall, second one cropped a bit for framing (these were inside a glass case)

iso 1000 f8 1/30s






iso 1250 f8 1/30s

More with the 20mm f3.5

iso 2200 f8 1/30s - the cream colored tiles demanded b&w conversion






then the concert started - I sat far away, hoping to do a long exposure with ND filter as everyone entered, but the grandstands were shaking... oh well, skip that

iso 1600 f8 1/60s






then the 105mm f2.5 came out, longest lens I had with me. Should have brought the 300

iso 800 f2.5 1/160s cropped top and bottom






five shot pano with the 105mm
iso 400 f2.8 1/125s






crops from the image:












looks like they were playing Yankee Doodle at that point in time


if you have the bandwidth, here's the full 112mp file - it's a 24mb jpeg

I also did a pano with the 50mm f1.8, but this one stitched better.

Vikings colors are usually not found here in Wisconsin, but Madison East High seems to like yellow/gold

Neat, hope you'll be able to catch more of the ones that are supposed to be hitting tonight/tomorrow night. Seems whenever there's an event, here it's cloudy and nothing can be seen. I'm bummed.

Hope you make it to San Francisco Ray. I'd love to give you a tour, beginning with the Buena Vista where we can have an Irish coffee...

Buena Vista Cafe

Note the cable car in the photo... a great way to see San Francisco...

So I'm shocked that I won another auction, this one for a 35 f/2 O AI'd. No, Jose, it is not the O.C. but like the H.C. 85, they don't come available very often with an AI conversion kit and this O does. As with the 28 f/3.5 H AI'd I bought, and the 85 f/1.8 H AI'd, I think I'll get by simply by being careful with the sun. I've not been disappointed with either of those lenses.

But I really do need to stop this nonsense. I think I need a 12 step program...

Thanks for the kind words on last night's Aurora fizzle. Heading back out into the darkness now, a huge CME is supposed to impact tonight and if true the lights should be amazing.

Nice work with the 180 Curtis. Those flowers have wonderful color.

Man, you sure do use that 180mm like you have been using it all your life. Great shots, especially Nitro.



Agreed 100%!
