Some recent images taken with various MF-Nikkor's:


driving snow in my hometown - 300/4.5 IF-ED at f/16, shot at ISO1000 and a 1/250sec from a monopod
we have a really widespread streetcar-network over here


"Earth hour" last saturday - shot at 08:28:47 p.m. with a PC 28/3.5 (shifted about 8mm up)
the framing could have been better (a bit more shift upwards), flare and ghosting are not so well controlled


...and the same scenery shot at 08:30:31 p.m.

Some more from Pompeii.

Here we have the supposed Arch of Caligula framing via di Mercurio and the Vesuvius:


The (supposed) Arch of Caligula with Vesuvius at the background by labecoaves, on Flickr

D7000 + Nikkor 20mm f/2.8 ais CPU'd hand held, ISO 320, f/8 at 1/800s, ~10% cropped.
This is a vie of Via di Mercurio leading to Mercurio tower. The arch is attributed controversially to Caligula, since during escavations a statue or bust with a similar face of this infamous emperor was found closeby.


Very nice Jose. You are making me want to visit this beautiful place.

I've been watching everyone's nice outdoor pics for the last few weeks hoping for some sign of spring here in Iowa. Yesterday and today the sun was out and it's in the 40's!!! I got a couple flowers of spring with my 105 2.5 and PN-11. I find hand holding isn't as easy, in spite of the many examples I've seen here, but still fun.

Nice color in these Jim. Welcome to the thread!

Here are a couple images from a quick getaway with my wife in Estes Park. No kids!! Shot with a newly acquired 85 1.4. Thoroughly enjoying all of the spectacular images being posted! A couple new additions arrived via the postman today, a 50/1.2 (thanks Chuong!) and a 28/2. It's been confirmed, definitely have a case of NMFAS



Nice depth of field control on these Craig.

John, the wild stream (please excuse my English) is very nicely captured! Love the light.

Ray, absolutely beautiful colors on the heron (egret?)! Is your lens the ED-variant?


Thank you Georg. My copy is the the AI version which does not have ED glass.
I've missed seeing you recently maybe you have been on when I wasn't
Love the snow shot and the building with the lights is phenomenal.

New ships for the Navy - a couple of Corvettes will replace the famous/infamous "Schnellboote" ("S-boats").


20/3.5 Ais and a Cokin graduated ND


I hate shooting a ship from the pier :-( the 20/3.5 was used here too


taken from the stern of another Corvette - the PC 85/2.8D was a bit too long for this
- it's time to save big bucks for a PC-E 45/2.8 ;-)
lens wide open, tilt was about 4 or 5 degrees

Nice series Dean. The conversions have a nice old time feel about them.

Some of the last shots from Pompeii, perhaps tomorrow I will be posting the firsts from Herculaneum.

These are some brickwork examples from the ancient city, all exposed due to the fact that stucco or other external surfaces were destroyed with the time and or escavations.


Pompeii's brickwork II by labecoaves, on Flickr

D7000 + Nikkor 20mm f/2.8 ais CPU'd hand held, ISO 200, f/5.6 at 1/160s.
Mixed brickwork called "opus reticulatum" - concrete-faced with diamond-shaped blocks/stones (right) and rectangular fired bricks (left) .


Pompeii's brickwork + terracota pipe by labecoaves, on Flickr

D7000 + Nikkor 20mm f/2.8 ais CPU'd hand held, ISO 400, f/5.6 at 1/640s.
Terracota pipe with "opus incertum" at left with some remnants of stucco and "opus latericium" at the right.


Another nice series of images Jose. I like these two for the color and detail. Nice texture.

Thank you, Ray!
It seems the non-ED works great on your D600. Can't wait to see more images with this combination.
I took a little break from this thread (had a lot of unnerving paperwork to do and trouble with me new old car).

I had to show a little love to the 180mm 2.8 AI It's the only prime I hadn't tried on my D600. To be honest I never really liked this lens on my D7000, so I didn't hold out a lot of hope. I had considered selling the lens. It took a while shooting to get used to the lens and was a little hard to hold steady. Not sure I want to sell it now




Lovely image Ray!

Thank you Peter, Leighton, Laura, and Ray for the comments on the "Frozen Pond" image.

This image is of steel reinforcing waiting to be placed. Just a touch of "rust". Taken with the 28-50 3.5 wide open. Thank you for looking.

Awesome, Georg! All favorites.

The wild stream is the Potomac just west of Washington DC.

Kwoodward, a great set. Love the B&W treatment and compositions. That lens sure does have some 3D pop to it!!
