Literally from the shoe box - Georg's talk about grain had me remember that my cheap Epson printer has a flat bed scanner built in, and since my b&w negative scanning on the fancy film scanner isn't going so good, I figured why not scan some old prints I made in college and show what a real darkroom produced right down to the output...

Cat in Bay Settlement, a small suburb of Green Bay, some time in spring 1989 or 1990. Shot on Nikon F3HP with 50mm f1.8 AIS, probably on T-Max 400 and printed on cheap plastic coated paper (Ilford MG Deluxe)







and some HDR made in 1990 before we knew what that meant - bathroom in abandoned school house in Door County, WI, again F3HP this time with my 28mm f3.5 (the one that went into the fish tank recently), hand held because we could not afford a tripod. This was printed on fancy Ilford thin fiber silver gelatin stuff, and lightly sepia toned







All imported to photoshop through ACR and adjusted for contrast, the rest is pretty much the prints as they were done 23 years ago

Two more from the old print box, both with F3HP and the 50mm f1.8 AIS

old Chevy truck in Oregon, somewhat enhanced in Photoshop for detail







and a propane storage facility in Door County, WI, about April 1990, selenium toned, I think

Few more with the Nikkor-Q 135. The flowers have the PK13. I should have waited and posted the transition, but I didn't...sigh. These are from the same plant, just three different buds.

That would be me of course... Though the photo as of fifteen minutes ago became incomplete...

135 f/2.8 Q.C. AI'd purchased at auction on E-Bay. Bjorn is a fan... though I'm crazy...

Rafael, you've got a great eye! I'm not surprised however. I'll have to do a set of images so it is easier to make out the smaller lenses. Of course, everything is listed in my profile so folks can make educated guesses about most everything. I love photos of lenses...

Ronny, your snail-action-shots are awesome!
Some days ago I've looked at some snails (as possible photo-subjects) in the garden, but the teutonic snails were lacking the elegance shown in your fabulous shots ;-)

Doug, your work with the Noct is highly inspiring. Thanks for sharing!

Jorge, I like your work with the 50/1.2 a lot.

Rafael, love the typical rendering of the 35/1.4 wide open! I like the play with the focus on the wide-open shot too.

Ray, love esp. the first butterfly-shot. The thin "twigs" of the plant are a nice contrast to the butterfly.

Leighton, love the strawberries! A nice "ad" for the 55/2.8 Micro. The haying-shots are very nice too, the framing is excellent.

Curtis, now that's a nice Nikkor-family -shot! My personal MF-Nikkor family is growing too, will report the arrival of my first new-in-box-bought MF-Nikkor soon ;-)

Mark, very nice set from the spring in Switzerland!

Peter from Madison - I like your old B&W's a lot - especially the first two. I'm curious about your first real-world-shots with the 600/4.

Kevin, again a very nice set with the 135/2.8 at macro-distance. And again is shot #1 my favorite. Great work

Peter from Knysna, Mark and Jeff - thanks for your comments!

Rafael, there are several long MF-Nikkor's at the european market right now. Prices are ranging from fair to bold. A 500/4P from England is one of the most-worn lenses I've ever seen. It looks like it has been the permanent companion of a british "pap" for two decades at least;-)
I've had my eyes on several 400/3.5's, but delayed a possible purchase for now.
