Sheesh Ronny, you're supposed to raise the bar, not make it unreachable. Those shots are all great! The solitary blue one is awesome.


No doubt one of the great things about this thread is the fact we all inspire one another to do better work. We see what others are doing with gear like ours and we rethink our approach to shooting and to processing of images. We are blessed to have so many really talented folks who've chosen to participate in this seemingly never ending conversation. When I see fine work, it makes me want to get out and shoot. Nothing could be finer!

Phillipe your daughter is a cutie and the 50 shots are marvelous.

Cooper keeps me busy but I still have my 180 mounted


Great color and contrast to this one Ron.

Ronny thanks, and even though this isn't in focus I love it! I think it's the lighting and movement.

Hello everyone, It's been a while.

I haven't posted in a while but kept following the thread continuously. Lots of new faces and lots familiar ones, and great quality MF pictures. This thread has always been a real inspiration to me, and recently I have started shooting a little bit more often again. Below are a few of our flowers in the front yard from this morning.

You're absolutely right Leighton about boys and their love of water. Nothing gave me more pleasure as a boy as playing in or trying to divert water... This one is priceless and yes, I get it...

How nice to have a bit of time for yourself on Sunday so you can play with the images you take at the market. And how sweet it is that your JOB at the market includes taking photos, which gives you permission to do so... I imagine folks are quite familiar with you wandering around with camera in hand. Farmers' markets are surely one of the best places for shooting with the combination of interesting people and wonderful produce and flowers such as the beautiful assortment you share above. Great work Leighton. I think you're enjoying your D600 about as much as you're enjoying these MF lenses...

Always a delight to see you Bert and not just because you post such wonderful close shots. I expect life has been busy with your long commute and demanding work life. But it is great to see your work on the thread once again. You're always welcome.

Thank you Curtis, and you're right about folks being familiar with what I do. They always say oh, it's just that old guy taking photos again. But it sure is nice being paid to do it!
