Good to see you back on the thread Jeff and to have your photography appear. I didn't comment on the pelican shot but I love it. I'll look forward to seeing more of your work now that your medical procedure is behind you. Have fun shooting.


Thanks so much Curtis. In your honor, here's one where I tried to emulate your terrific flower shooting style.

Emulate is such a great word, much better than copy or steal.


Very nice! The colors are so beautiful!

guys i am selling my Nikkor 85mm 1.4 AIS, I will get the 28mm 2.8 AIS, but i am sad to say i am going af to the 35mm 1.4 from sigma, and maybe the nikkor 300mm f/4D, or the Nikkor 400mm 2.8 ais, maybe! I love the 85mm 1.4 ais, but i need the 1.4 in af so itll be easier for me, weird, but true. the longer lenses i need to shoot my sons games, and other portrait styles as well, however, i am not big on people photography! Also, could anyone offer advice price wise, based on my ad? thank you!

Thanks for hearning me out! Happy photography! -Americo the Strange

I am heading to FL again for a week. I am bringing the 25-50mm and probably a AF lens.
Here one today with the Nikkor-PC 105mm f2.5








Lovely image of your daughter Chuong.

Ray, those recent pics from Florida have been too inviting, may just have to take a trip down there soon. Then I have to figure out what gear to bring and stay clear of the gators


Samy, take the 400 5.6 EDIF and a teleconverter!

Not much work this week with camera and lenses, only some quick photos.

And one with the 35 1.4 N, also with the PK-11A:







These are very nice Samy. I especially like the colors in this one.

Hi All,

Happy (day after the) 1st of August - Swiss National Day.

Brought to you by the 85mm.


Nice fireworks Mark. I like the third one.

I tried to use the 28 3.5 PC as I believe it should be used today and took a mixture of images. Exif is meaningless so I won't post it.


Peter, great series! I like the daisies and background in the first.

Quick shot from the past weekend. 80-200/4.5 with a full stack of Vivitar Extension tubes (68mm I believe).


_DSC9272 by Kevin.Woodard, on Flickr

I did an audit of my lens use and I was rather surprised. I use the Series E 50/1.8 the most, followed closely by the 80-200/4.5 (extension tubes have boosted its usage dramatically). All the rest are a LOT less used. The up and comer is the 28/3.5. I wish I had wider though...


Lovely Kevin.

I went out to the Circle Bar Ranch today to take some photos. Usually I take my 300mm to look for birds and gators, but today I was armed with my D600, tripod and 24mm 2.8 AIS. I wanted to take some shots of the marsh land that is so beautiful and prevalent here. So I mounted my camera on my tripod and off I went


This fellow was starting off on the levee trail that runs between the marsh and the stream.




Ray this is trancendental!

Great work and discussions. Friday - Cruising Grand Escondido - 16mm 3.5, it was very hard to try to get a good photo, as much as I love this lens for natural landscapes, it is much easier to work with the 15/18/20mm rectilinears for urban jungles.

I love this series Rafael. Granted, the fisheye has its way of rendering a scene but I really appreciate how you've used it here. And I agree with Bert, the colors are delicious. That Pontiac looks VERY much like the 1960 Bonneville convertible I owned. It seemed a bit like an aircraft carrier when I maneuvered it through a tight space. This is what my car looked like...

Phillippe - thank you. I'm still blown away by the sharpness of all your images and the latest one of your daughter is superb. The water is also cool.

Curtis - I like the pp of "Nikki". Don't have a dropbox and while I'd love to participate I have a lot of housecleaning to do with my own shots!

Kevin - I like the rose and love my 80-200 on tubes too. Probably the easiest lens to use for macros.

Steve - I had a feeling there was a professional quality to your pics and have just had a squiz at your website. Very nice indeed as are the latest group of images.

Jeff - thanks for the comment. I'm starting to really like this lens even though it is quite exacting to use. I feel that Nikon really have the 28mm focal length just about perfect in any configuration (witness Phillippe and Ray's images amongst others) and now I'm likely to turn into a mini- Curtis or Rafael with more lenses than I can ever use!!
It's a bit of an overkill, something like having three toilets in a house occupied by two people. One has to be very acrobatic to get proper use out of them

Jeff - Table Top reef and the Strelitzia are both superb and indicate your expertise and versatility.

Scott - thank you

Dylan - you just keep on doing it right!

Rafael - excellent series - I just love the Beetle!

Curtis - I think the Nimitz class carriers are smaller than your Pontiac was. Nice shot.
