Ron, great colors and background on that magnolia image.

I think this is the first time I saw a 45 GN example?

Good point Georg, I also wonder whether Kevin's newly acquired focusing rail will withstand the load of the 600 f4

I went and looked at the weight of the 600 f4 AI/AIS, its more than double that of my comparatively featherweight 500 f4P

At the swap meet I was at last Sunday, there was a lady selling a 600mm f/4 that was pristine! She only wanted $4k for it... I played with it with her D4 (it was on a monstrous tripod)...wow, I was able to read the "Push" button on a soda dispenser in the McDonalds about 400 yards away. Heck, it made me think about 900mm on my D7000.


Kevin, the 600/4 has a major drawback: it wont fit your reversing-ring ;-)

the camel train Curtis put nikki on finally arrived!!

Thank you for the little surprises in the box - they will be treasured!

Rinie - I have the magnet up at work.
Laura - love the B25 pin
Scott - yes, the tape made it intact and I was delighted by my surprise.

There were a couple of filters and a hood there too - total score! Thank you so much.

I'm going out to take some shots today!

Great news Ben. So glad she made it home safely. Many miles, many days, and oh so many memories! That sure was a lot of fun.

The one downside of Nikki arriving with Ben, is that now I have no excuse I can use to avoid sending photos in for Leighton to add to the blog... Of course, now that the market is happening, perhaps Leighton is too busy and we can put it off even longer...

John, wonderful series. I especially like the low tide and piles in the second series.

Curtis, more nice flower shots. The red rose is awesome.

Phillipe, nice street scenes. The first image with the mannequin head, she definately has a split personality.

Ron, nice magnolia blossom.

Ray, nice catch finding the owl mate.

Thank you Samy for the comment.

From this evening, a quick run out the door. Shot with a full set of Kenko Tubes

Ray, are you trying to say that the FL women on the beach are too wrinkly?



Yes! 80% look like their skin is made of Alligator hide and hanging off their arms
I can take a few photos of them if you like

Must be different on Ray's side of Florida

Jose love the shot from Rome. The architecture is simply beautiful.
Samy the flowers are terrific
Curtis the white lily is so elegant and the roses are beautiful
Nice work with the micro Craig
John the 16 plus the 45 make great travel companions
Phillippe nice shots but do I detect a little CA on the mans head?
Georg I love the grain and rust!
Ronny those two shots of the flower have the real WOW factor - well done
Leighton it's great to see you post. Busy time of the year for you and I miss your photos!
Ron nice to see you getting into the spring flower scene
Laura flowers are the call of the day and you did not disappoint us nicely done!
Thanks to everyone for the comments on my flowers and owls

It is Reagan and that's why I settled on this side of the state!

Thanks for the positive comments everyone - I have not had time to go through the last couple of pages other than to notice chatter about the remote possibility of Curtis moving to Florida . . .

Here's a few more from yesterday and this morning. Fun ends tomorrow.

Thank you Ronny, Ben, Georg and Ray for the comments.

Georg, you're right, the 105 can be TOO sharp at times for portraits. Thank goodness for the adjustment brush in LR!

Never to busy for you Curtis! I'll take them any time. In fact, Sunday is our one day of "relative" rest when I can spend more time on the puter.

The statue reminds me of a young "Alfred E. Neuman" but I don't think he ever lived in France

That's just a MAD comparison

Great portrait Mihai! I like it. Did you add the vignette in post?

Thanks Chin & Kevin. Yes, the vignette is from PP.

In fact I'm very impressed what this old glass is able to produce in a mild light...

When I look at your pictures I always see some original compositive aspects that add a lot to the final result, and, as I think you have just a few seconds to get them, this is even more special.
My compliments to you.


Roberto, thanks for looking at my pictures in such detail!
That's a very nice compliment : thank you so much!
