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

I'm glad Phillippe's not around. He used to call these kinds of shots "banal" - he's right of course, but all this nikki stuff makes me feel I should post something - so don't flame me - I'm just keeping my hand in.

"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.

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


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

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.

Thanks Dean, and after viewing your work with the 50/1.2 I don't blame you!

I love the street shot, you did an excellent conversion. I'm still not sold on Nik, maybe one of these days.

I'm not totally sold on it either but haven't given it much of a go. Downloaded a book on the Nik software but will probably never read it

I much prefer VSCO at this point.

Nice series Leighton. Jed does not seem to mind having a camera pointed at him.

Quite a day... and San Francisco remains on the agenda. Don't worry Leighton, you'll have your cable car ride...


Nice to see spring Curtis. The dogwood image is very nice. Also looking forward to the cable car ride!
