Terrific! Beautiful graffiti work, well capured by a photographer who knows what and how to do. And a pretty lens of course.

Leighton, Ronny, Reagan, Jose, Ray, Ray (O), Scott - thank you for the positive feedback

Jose - you continue to amaze with the Pompeii shots. Unlike most ruins where tome has destroyed decoration these show that the Romans loved colour - presumably the owner od this house was a rich man.

Ray - I can see the D7000 staying in your cupboard! Great shots. Now for some 2/3 crops side by side with the 7K - just in case you haven't enough to do!

Ray (O) - I've generally followed Scott Kelby's advice as given in the Photoshop Elements 6 book. Dodge here, burn there hope for the best . The big barn is gorgeous.

Scott - I'm glad i don't have to grease the bulldozer before using it. Interesting image showing a facet of life those of us who never see snow don't even think about.

Rafael - fantastic images under the bridge. I've only been to San Diego once and loved it. Climate and "feel" a lot like Cape Town without Table mountain.

Curtis - we need a new image as the "signature" to this thread. Your collection seems to have since day 1 when you picked up your 8th lens. Enjoy the new one.

OK - here we go going old school. Nikon FE2 + 135/2 AIS on some old (like 8 years old) Provia 100.
The 135/2 was shot wide open almost every shot.

I'm using my FE2 that came back cleaned and adjusted, but it seems that most of my shots are back-focused - seems they didn't get the focusing screen adjusted at all so it's going back to have them do it (again?).

I also have a roll almost finished that's all 50/1.2 AIS . . . .

- John

What I'm curious about Ray, is when did Leighton drive down to Florida? I see you caught him with the 300...


Definitely looking good Ray. I think that camera will take very good care of you, even as you take very good care of it. Pretty sweet images you've been posting.


I like to think I'm not quite that large!

Jose - Thanks for more of the tour. Do they put a lot of care in to the preservation of all of this?

Ray - The viewfinder is one of the main reasons I switched. I love the last image. If you haven't tried raw yet, you're in for a treat when you start developing the images.

Ray from OH - I agree with the others. This would make a fine large print.

John - Not much DR in Provia is there?

Rafael, those are beautiful. I am shocked and pleased that there isn't any other graffiti defiling the murals.

Mike, I'm a sucker for photos like the sunset you posted, though I keep thinking that I've finally spotted the comet in the pic until I blow the dust speck off the monitor!

Scott, very nice take on the construction equipment. The lsight glow and slightly busy bokeh (at least in my eyes) actually make for a neat "effect" for this particular subject.

Rafael, the under bridge art is eye opening, well done on both your part in capturing the location and on the artist's Part. I actually enjoy the context provided in your pictures than on the "official" Chicano Park website - maybe they would use your pics there.

Today I used the 85mm 1.4 on the new D600. My first observation was how much easier it was to see the focus. I have pretty good eye sight and still this viewfinder made a world of difference. The first was at 1.4, second at 2.0 and third at 2.8








Ray you are doing some amazing stuff with your new D600. Are you glad you made the transition?



Ray, these are simply superb!! No tube used?

Thanks Ray, Scott, Peter and Leighton for the comments.

Scott, loved the rust and dirt on the "construction equipament";

Rafael, amazing graffiti shots with the 20/3.5 UD. Did you use the lens hood??

John, backfocused or not, your film set and digital duping with 55/3.5 is great.
