My first focus stack! 7 images. Series E 28/2.8 @ f/5.6 in front of a PK13 (27.5mm) extension tube which yields a magnification of 2.6:1. This is a vertical crop of a horizontal image, about 30%

The girls have been wanting to go out to breakfast at a local place that opened up about 6 months ago - mainly because they specialize in crepes, some of the savory variety and some of the sweet variety. You can guess which type they wanted . . .

Slung the D800 + 45/2.8P around my shoulder and we walked the 5 blocks. My crepe was of the savory variety (due to my severe sugar incompatibilities) and hence was much less photographic than my latte or their berry + whip creme-filled breakfasts. Their eyes were much larger than their stomachs so next time they will have to split one.

And it appears they only have two eyes - don't most spiders have many eyes?

Here are a few shots from the John Ringling Mansion in Sarasota, Florida The opulence of this home is something you really need to see to believe. It is very ornate and the attention to detail is amazing. This home was built on the premiss that there is a sucker born every minute. The first shot is using the 16mm 3.5 and the next two are the 35mm1.4.

I don't think that Daddy Longlegs are spiders. I have the feeling they are a different order that has 8 legs but only 1 pair of eyes and cannot produce silk.

One from this morning, 180mm+TC201 just under 10 meters and about 50% crop of the image. Yes, late April and yet more snow. Helps with the birds though since they come where the food is.

You are correct, they are not spiders...just insects that look like a spider.

So following Curtis' urging, I took the 80-200/4.5 out with the PK13. Very fun combo, brings the lens more into what I would use it for! Not selling it now...

This was previously posted, now edited a tad.

A pretty weed...

These were popular with bees, just this flower wasn't up to snuff for them.

Similar to a previous posting, but a different exposure. Like this one a lot better.

Nice shots Kevin looks like you have been a busy boy
Great shot Mark good detail in the feathers - Nicely captured and the snow sets it off!

Even Mommy Longlegs may go into shock when she sees that "EEEEK that couldn't be mine!!!"

Terrific start with focus stacking Kevin. The 28 Series E was reversed I presume?

Rafael, really like those 55 1.2 images. That old jalopy with the rusting pipes is a fun shot.

Ray, super images of the mansion in Sarasota.

Mark, I see the blossoms under the snow, they will come out eventually, just like they did here, great job capturing the small bird. Some kind of chickadee?

A few more from this past week's spring break get-away. 16/3.5 AI or 45/2.8P.

Blossom tree with wide angle.

First is with the 20 3.5UD. The glass on this one's a little beat. Last time I looked at it I wondered if it was fungus, but eventually I decided its just been handled rough.







Second with the 24 2.8 AIS. This one hasn't been put to use for months. Its a delightful small lens, from what I remember its sharp even wide open. Both images at f/8.

John is having such a good tine with the 45mm, I might just have to use mine.

Wonderful work everyone. Glad you put the 80-200 f/4.5 to work with an extension tube Kevin. It is a fantastic combination. You'll likely motivate me to mount mine which is sitting on a cabinet in the living room for some reason. It may be getting ready to go for a walk...

This is what you get on a bright day using spot metering and aiming the center focusing point on dark glasses... The 105 f/2.5 P AI'd.
