Last hurrah for comet PanSTARRS.

135/2 AIS - never thought I'd be using this lens for comet photography!

And one more a little later in the night - heavily processed to remove the scattered light from Bainbridge Island.

Nikki, of course, with a little help from SEP 2.


What made you think of Reagan at a time like that?

This is what folks were waiting for... from the Juice Bar Collective.



If the girl was for Reagan, this must be to lure Monty back....

Thanks everyone for the comments. You're right Dean, the 55/2.8 never fails.

"Banal" or not, I love these. I especially like the first one because the moon is perfectly exposed and and so is the building. Very well done.

Curtis, your work with Nikki has been wonderful. The portrait of Sue is great.

Here are two more with the 55/2.8. I almost like using it over the 50/1.2 simply because of focusing closer...almost.

Leighton - beautiful B&W on the "Tack"-shot, but the ropes are very nice too. Can't make up my mind which 50/55mm-lens is my personal #1 - this morning the 50/2Ai found a place in my camera bag ;-)

Tony - awesome work with the 105/1.8! I like especially the "Dean-edition" ;-)

John, astro- or comet-photography is one thing I've never tried, your work is highly inspiring. Thanks for sharing!
Nice to see the 135/2 used in this application - I've shot some wheelchair-tabletennis this morning with this fine MF-Nikkor.

Curtis, wow, you're on a roll with Nikki! Love the dogwood-tree in bloom (lovely dainty colors) and your Portrait of Sue.

Ben, I really like the bridge-shot. Great and very moody colors.

Leighton, the portrait of Jed is fabulous. 100% pure loyalty are looking to the man behind the lens.

Thanks Georg, so many lenses...so little room in the bag.

Very nice, Leighton ... esp. the second one. It really is a versatile lens and could be used as an everyday normal, but I still wouldn't favour it over the 50/1.2.
