Just like Curtis I've tried to use a wide-angle for close-ups too, but the 35/1.4 is not a wide in my book
Here's an image taken with my out-of-wack 20/3.5 Ais coupled with a 8mm-Nikon tube to the D3s:

Wow Georg, what a beautiful capture!

Thanks Ronny, Leighton, Georg and Curtis.

Friday, Cruising Grand in Escondido again, this time with a lens that don't get much love, an 18mm 3.5 ais bought new long ago, D3 as I do not intend to print large.

Sorry if the post processing bugs you, the vignetting is intentional, these photos are not a test of the lens.

Slow day, the thread's lagging way down on the page

Jose, terrific long distance Kiskadee with that monster 800 5.6. And your browser breaking urban pano was fun, very sharp and great color.

Georg, very nice colorful leaves with that out of whack 20mm lens. I liked your ultra pano of the ship engine room, if you do get a chance to do that again, I wouldn't mind seeing some detail too.

Rafael, those antique cars were great, and those three guys were really funny with the 18mm!

Dean, great to see you here again, and very nice work with the 50 1.2.

Ronny, the pollinating bees are great, as is your manual focusing skill.

Keeping the thread moving

Some out of focus scenery with the 105 2.5P early version.

I was right it was Cassis! Wonderful little town (at least it was 20 years ago).

A shot I just had to take while shooting soccer today - the coaching-zone of a local club nicely equipped with stools made in the former GDR:

Georg who said that Germany is the richest economy in Europe?

Philippe, lovely harbour-scene! I just can't get enough of boats and ports and the sea.

Peter, nice work with the 20/3.5! I like especially the last shot for it's framing.

Samy, the old 105P renders the background in a beautiful fashion!

Dean, that's a fantastic set! I love the "askew crucifix" and the image with the city-background. The processing works great here in my opinion. Welcome back!

Rafael, very cool images from the "Cruising Grand"! My personal fav is the "Cruising Grand Street" - the cars look like hungry predators in your shot. Great use of the super-wide Nikkor.

Haha, Philippe, you're right! Some coaches can indeed sit on comfy, heated, cozy leather-Recaros. But those chairs are not worth a single frame/shot in my opinion. I like it cheap and raw

Philippe, Ronny, Leighton, Samy and Jose: thanks for your comments on the leaf and/or the engine room!

Samy, sorry, I don't have any detail-shots from this engine-room. Another pano is in the works.
Here's a quick grab-shot (taken as "photographic note" for me) from a part of the ship's engine-room:

20/3.5 Ai at f/5.6, D3s, 1/20sec, taken as S-sized JPG at ISO12800 as a "photographic note" only

I just looked at a map, and I am pretty sure I have been there - summer 1980, on the road from Marseilles to Toulon, D559. We were on a 3 week bicycle tour, a loop starting and ending in Avignon. We went south to the coast, followed the coast to Toulon, then headed north to La Palud sur Verdon, and back west to Avignon. I am still amazed that my parents let us do this.

My slides from that trip were already very faded when I scanned them, so not the best representation what a Nikkormat EL with 50mm f1.8 could do.

From the notes I had taken this image is the only one from Cassis - we took a break in the shade of these nice trees lining somebody's driveway



This is in Martiques a few days earlier
