I am guessing that's a single exposure on the 16mm, although John will need to confirm. At that wide of an angle, I believe you can get away with a 30 sec image without stars forming trails.

Samy has it right.
Fisheye and a single exposure. 30 sec leaves slight trails, but they are hard to see unless zoomed in to 100%..
Not my best night sky image for sure!

And yes I have two 16/3.5's because I know I'll drop one some day or scratch the front element sticking it too close to something.

John


You also have two John because you love that lens... let's get serious here...

You are the culprit when it comes to this lens, not me. And as we've seen over and over again this little lens is great. And I really enjoyed this night sky shot, even if it wasn't your best. Keep em coming...

Some really spectacular shots in here!!! The MF bug continues, A 16 3.5 fish on a d600 . not sure what the Bug is, but likes the curve of the lines. Even tries a handheld , backdoor fireworks. Thanks for a great thread. Andy










Love this shot Andy and would really enjoy seeing a larger image. Most of us tend to post at 1000 pixels at the long side. I'd encourage you to create a larger file of this image and post it on the thread Ray started on the Nikon forum for fireworks shots. This is a really sweet image, demonstrating what Georg said about showing the ground by using wider lenses. We're not going to see much wider than what you've done here. First rate work.

B&W version of the flower macro with 35 1.4N + PK-11A, which I am going to cross post to the Shooting with Tubes thread. At f/8:

Wonderful set Roberto. Doesn't appear to be a bad place for a holiday. I keep hearing from my friend Rinie about her latest excursion and can't help but be envious of folks living in Europe who seem more inclined to take holidays than most Americans. I think Rinie has 56 days off during the year in addition to weekends. She also can "buy" additional time off, so she generally has 70 days in which to play. Of course, I'm retired so I can't complain but it sure would have been nice during my working career when I had more disposable income to have had the time to do more traveling. You appear to be living the good life Roberto. Wonderful!

I like them both Samy... and I definitely am enjoying your tube work. You don't list all your MF lenses in your profile so I'm left to appreciate what is in your kit an image at a time as you list the lens used. The 35 f/1.4 N is a very sweet lens that I'd be tempted to buy except for the price and the fact that with the AI-s already in my kit I have that focal length covered. But I guess price is the key issue because I've certainly been willing to duplicate focal lengths before, sometimes multiple times. But $500 is a bit too steep a price at 35mm. I love what you're doing with that lens though. I'll appreciate it vicariously...

85/1.4 shows up here on FM now and again. I just scored a helluva copy for just a bit South of $600. Snagged it as soon as I saw it. The gentleman who sold it was astute enough to post a picture with the serial # showing so that it was possible to confirm clearly that it was Ai-S. Now, if I had a Nikon body, I'd be able to start posting pics here Actually come Monday I'll have an F4 I can do that with

Curtis, it's all your fault


Anthony!!!!!!! we have missed you my friend. Welcome home

Some excellent photos in the last few pages. I don't know how you keep taking those superb images of flowers Ronny, so prolific!
Uprooting to Zurich sounds like an amazing adventure Philip!

It took me a while to get past the photos taken with AF lenses to reach one by an MF
I always process chronologically, even though I know the best shots are later, I try not to jump ahead

WOW! 10 pages since my last post. You guys are really doing some fine work. Beautiful images since my last visit. Way to many to comment on but if I had to pick a favorite, it would be the fireworks shot from Rafael. Really really nice.

I struggled today to get anything worth posting, but I managed a few just to try to stay up with all of you.

Thanks Curtis. I actually got the idea of the large aperture 35 from Ray in Florida, and about the PK-11A extension tube from Georg's recent posting of I think a 24 f2 + PK-11A shot I did use to list lenses, but it got unwieldy when I started down the scalloped lenses path and started duplicating focal lengths

Leighton, your eye for lighting has been superb as of late. I really like how these flowers are rendered. The colors are rich and striking.
