Peter - I like the first one the best.

Georg - What a risque shot!

Ray - Fantastic shot, not a wasted walk at all.

Philippe, Peter, Paul, Leighton and Ray - thanks, I'm happy that you like the blowball and/or fountain!

Ray, the dragonfly-shot is amazing. Your - apart from the dragonfly - "resultless" birding-trip was exactly what I meant a few pages back. I'm in awe about the patience and dedication of birders and nature-photographers.

Thank you Georg - photography is like fishing - sometimes it requires a lot of patience

I had to track this guy all day long through the Wisconsin woods - hard to get close enough with just a 300mm lens - actually, the zoo is only 10 mins from my office and I had some time over lunch

The old lion went out to lounge in the sun - this is shot through some bushes, which looks like I added a vignette, but that's in camera

Tiger with its young audience behind thick glass - tried black and white but in color it is easier to grasp what is going on

Testing 1, 2. Testing 1, 2. I mean 1.2







actually, it's not bad when focused using f4 either, look at that color and detail:







These were just test shots. It's a 1.2 AIS NOCT The weeds are mine too. It's turning into quite a little ecosphere back there between the chain link fence and the barb wire of the field behind me. lol

Congratulations on the NOCT Doug. I don't see it listed in your profile so I'm assuming it is a late addition to your kit. Between the NOCT and the 45 PC-E mounted on your D700, you have something to contribute to this thread if you wish. Once you're done testing with that bad boy you can put it to work. Mihai, our friend in Romania has hip replacement surgery scheduled for the near future, so his NOCT will likely remain in the cabinet for some time. You can be the official representative of that well regarded lens. Welcome.

Wonderful series of images from around town Peter, though the lion and tigers definitely add a touch of the exotic to the set. With the 600 you'll be able to count his eyelashes... The 300 did a more than credible job! Well done all the way around.

Thanks everyone for the nice comments on the flowers.

And I agree with Curtis about your shots Peter.
