Shot with my beloved Nikkor 85mm 1.4 AIS, and my much adored Nikon D700, handheld, out the window of my Toyota Corolla, and processed a bit much via LightRoom 4. I like #5

I like #5 too - a charming picture/processing - much like a very old print or a rendering done by an architect.

Ben, Leighton, Ronny, Kevin and Reagan - thanks for your comments!

Ronny, very nice shot of the winterly coffee-break! Love the wide-open-view.

I took a trip to Honeymoon Island today to do some shooting with my 300mm 4.5 EDIF with the TC-14a. Before the rains came I was treated to my favorite honeymoon couple the Great Horned Owls. They have two new babies again this year. I was lucky enough a few years ago to get photos of them mating and seems as though they are still busy in that regard. There were many photogs there including a few of those Canon people

I also was lucky enough to come across a bald eagle. It certainly was a great day even though the rain put an end to my hopes of using the 35mm 1.4 for some sunset shots

Ray, very nice shots of the Owls! Love these birds! Great that you're stepping into the breach* while Jose is looking after Pompeii ;-)
*) I really like your bird-pictures in general - I just can't remember seeing an owl-shot out of your hands.

Thank you, georgms, I had a similar feeling too! I think it came out well cool considering I had no clue at what i was doing! the others are nice, but this one is really cool.

Out with the 50 1.8 this morning trying to decide if I really need to get a 1.2 again
I think they are about the same after F4 but the 1.2 has 1.2

Nice focus play in the first of this series. Nicely done Reagan.

Thank you Georg. The last time I shot the owls I was using the Canon 1DMKII so I can't post them here but they are in this folder on Zenfolio

Thank you Americo, Reagan and Scott. Actually Scott the have the eagles fenced off because of the nest so I really needed at least a 600mm F4 to really reach them

Thank you Tony, Curtis, Kevin, Leighton, Reagan, and Georg for your comments. A couple of you asked if they were color or b&w images. They were taken on a overcast day with some light snow falling. The images are full color straight out of the camera.

These two were taken 24 hours apart. Both are full color straight out of the camera. One with overcast sky and the other in bright morning sunlight. Even in the sunlight image the evergreens do not have much color. Both taken with the 28 2.8 ais (The exif data is incorrect on the second image. Forgot to set the lens info.). Thanks for looking.

Some very nice photos just on this page, Scott, Ray, Curtis and Americo. Have to dig back several more pages to see what all I missed in the last few days.

Well in air travels and travails I managed to do a bit of photography. The most interesting was the museum at Milwaukee's General Mitchell airport (What a concept, something other than shops and food at an aiport! ). Quite a bit of history in that little museum. I found out that this same General Mitchell's name was used for the B-25 Mitchell bomber. I associate that plane with the Doolittle raid of Tokyo.

Very interesting history of this general who seemed to be ahead of the times but didn't let that faze him. The results are usually not pretty. There was also history and model of a very early version of Milwaukee's airport. The last picture is a depiction of a Martin bomber demonstrating bombing at sea using a captured German ship in 1921.

All with the 35 f2 OC.
