Tony - excellent series - what a lucky girl Nikki has been!

Ray - pub shots are great. I think the real advantage of the newere sensors (apart from printing) is the extraordinary low light performance. Can see you're enjoying it.

Those are jaw-dropping images Mike. The years rewind and I turn nine every time I look at photos of the stars and the night time sky, honest!
Some day...
Some day...

These are very nice Mike. We do not see anything like this here in the lower 48, at least not around here.


We were having a campfire one October evening some years ago when we saw the AB. We couldn't believe we saw it this far south, although it was nowhere near as vibrant as Mike's.

St. Patrick's Day party at the local watering hole. I got to try the D600 in low lights. I was impressed with the handling. Here's a few shots with the 35mm 1.4 & 85mm 1.4


Ray I'm so glad you're enjoying the D600!

Took Nikki down to LA and Venice with my friend Spencer this weekend. I had never been to this part of LA and I hadn't been to Venice since I was a kid. The weather in LA was perfect, but Venice was socked in with fog, which still made for some interesting shots. This first part is LA and the Second one will be the Venice stuff.

I took a slew of shots with the Nikkor-Q 135mm f/2.8 over the weekend... Wide open, exceptionally hard to nail focus. In fact, I don't think I have a shot yet (through the viewfinder) where I have nailed focus wide open. Now, once I stop it down to about f/5.6...man, whole different beast. Lovely images that are tack sharp. One particular shot gives the impression that the DOF @f/2.8 at MFD is only about an inch, maybe 1.5 inches. Does this seem about right from what you have seen with the 135? Hope to have some images up tonight from my last group.

Tony, love the glow wheels in the fog and the lone skater
Mike, can't get enough of the lights but just my 2 cents. I think they would look better without the borders

Here's one just for you.

very cute Chin - I'm glad you didn't - I really really really don't want to spend that kind of money.
