5 pages in next to no time - awesome!

Thanks Leighton, Jeff (if I could get my hands on the Woody I could live in CA!), Scott, Georg and James

Ben - your Oz pics are great as always - pity we won't be there for some time if at all. I'd love to see your Sydney through your eyes.

Georg - all the cruise images are good but the 16mm shot is fantastic!

John - My monitor is exactly 1/2 the width of your panos which are delightful

Peter B - Sevier Lake is great and the aircraft shots are remarkable.

Phillippe - you like a British car? Thanks . You also seem to be everywhere I was in Provence 12 years ago. We loved Cassis and the calanques nearby. Lovely image.

Leighton - the little girl in the jacket is tremendous!

Rafael - the test images are good - the "ugly" ground cover is of South African origin, so be nice to us. Thank you for the D200 images - you remind me that it is a wonderful tool that I have yet to master.

Scott - the farmhouse images are really good and reflect the mood very well.

Jose - the "dry" macro is terrific

Jeff - ' " sand and wire" - 5 stars

Ray - I like your complex and the images are beautiful

Kevin - you are becoming the "master of macro" on this thread. (C'mon James that's a challenge )

Peter, FYI Aston Martin is no longer Brit but Italian : Investindustrial (former shareholders of Ducati) is the AM's owner now..... Viva Italia!

Thanks for the comments on my recently posted images - really much appreciated!
The shots taken with the 35/1.4 on the cruise-ship were nonsense, hope you all don't mind the silly post.
Here's another one from the ship, a bit more wildly framed, taken again with the fantastic 16/3.5 Ai:


D700 at ISO 3200, 16/3.5 Ai at f/5.6, 1/30sec, handheld

Most other pictures I took today were shot with the 14-24/2.8 on the D3s, I love both cameras and lenses for this kind of stuff.


I like this perspective Georg. At first, I thought it was your house, then I read on.

A couple of shots using the 85mm 1.4 a sorely neglected lens in my kit! These were taken around our complex. The pond is right in front of our unit



This one is gorgeous Ray. I'm curious though, why is the 85 neglected?

One of your best macros yet Kevin. I'm afraid I don't have the patience for such photography.

Now here's a real monitor breaker - 17 portrait images stitched in PTGuiPro. 400/5.6 ED AI.







Sorry, but you all need 32 inch wide monitors

John

Just wonderful John. It helped that I have a 27" monitor, but it still hung over the edge! What a beautiful area of the country.

More nice compositions from the hanger. I immediately thought of the movie Fail Safe when I saw this one.

Macro is what got me interested in photography. I really like seeing the stuff that we normally don't see. Took a shot yesterday that when zoomed in to 100%, you can see 5 little bugs cruising around the inside of the flower. Can't see it any other way. Would have never known it was there. Thank you for the compliment.

Some more from the car show.

The Borgward was a marvellous vehicle - the first passenger car to be produced in Germany after the war. My dad had two of them and part of my driving lessons were in an Isabella sedan lik the one on the left.

The company's history can be read at http://www.borgward.co.za/index.php/borgward-history/ - it may interest Georg

All your recent images of the car show are fantastic! I really like the B/W conversions, so very clean. I think I just noticed you use a D200 as well, very nice old workhorse.

Thank you leighton. I used exposure plot and found out I only used the 85mm 1.4 - 7% of the time. My most expensive lens deserves more usage
