I am stumped, which lens is that Peter? And congrats!

Couple very nice pictures on this page, Mark's waterfall and Chuong, very nicely lit scene of your daughter reading the ipad. And just I was typing that, great pic of your daughters Philippe. Everyone's lost in electronics nowadays

What else can I say, Philippe. Your shots always get me stop what I am doing. You're back to that 28mm again. Lovely.

55mm f1.2 Nikkor-S can't wait to turn the world into an out-of-focus blob

Peter, congrats to your new old Nikkor! I love this lens (my copy is the late Ai-variant of the 55/1.2). Focusing is tricky, but I'm sure you will master it. The empty sign post image is fantastic.

Laura, congrats to your chemistry-exam!

Philippe, I like your take on family-portraits a lot. The first shot is not as "lovely" as "sisters 2", but I like the symmetry of this shot, including the Dorade-style vents (= the read "ears").

Philippe, what's the age difference between your daughters? Looks about the same as mine, around 22 months.

Jorge, excellent work with the fast 50!

Jeff, love the evening sky over the sea. The rolling wave is a tiny, but very important detail. Your eyes must be really fine ;-)

Ronny, your flower-shots are spectacular. Wow, please keep 'em coming!

Ron, the sunbathing Cooper is very nicely captured. He looks a bit lost in the fresh green ;-)

Jose, your macro-shots are fantastic.

Leighton, that's an ugly brew on your land. I'm glad that no serious damage happened.

Mark, very nice set from the Lago di Garda. I like the waterfalls-shot the most.

Aah it must be the factory AI ring that makes it look a bit different near the rear mount? That lens is a lot of fun! That's the same version I have.

I'm back from a quick trip to the Gold Country of California, alas, without any photos to show for it. We were so busy yesterday trailing behind a local realtor who introduced us to neighborhoods as well as quite a few homes for sale that there wasn't time for photography. What can I say... its beautiful country but doesn't seem to be what the doctor ordered. I'm afraid a move to the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains is not in the cards. More will be revealed as we short through possibilities. it is still possible a move to Florida will be in Sue's future, which would likely lead to a move by me. Stay tuned...

A trio of photos from two days ago, taken with the 200 f/4 Q.C. AI'd which has actually been removed from the camera and is not in the camera bag. Now all I have to do is get out and shoot...

I think you should be looking about 800 miles further North for your next place of residence . . . .

learned something new today about how to make more realistic looking HDR than the silly presets it contains. I've posted these images before, but not processed like this (32bit files through camera RAW)

two source images, 105mm f2.5, both f8, one at 1/320s, the other at 1/40s, or -1 and plus 2 stops over metered value







you can even see a spider web in that engine at 100%.

another one I redid using this process from the original 16-bit HDR to a more pleasing look - this was taken with the 20mm f3.5, split toned

What is the technique? Care to share?

Kevin, I'm not sure how Peter did it, but here's a method you might try.

Hope you and Sue can work this out soon. It's a HUGE ordeal having to move, I'll be praying for y'all.

I love the red in the Roses against the white fence.

Thanks Ray, Leighton, Chuong, Peter in WI, Georg, Alan.

Peter in WI, congrags on the new lump of glass

Phillipe, nice shot of the sisters, too bad their attention is focused on the tiny screens everyone's obsessed with nowadays.

Curtis, if you moved to Florida then I would expect to see lots of photos of those flying phenom known as "palmetto bugs" aka flying cockroaches. Maybe take John up on his offer
