Out about Mt. Rainier today - welcome to Spray Park - on the NW side of the mountain that is much less visited (though still crowded) than the other sides to the South (Paradise) and East (Sunrise).

Here's a few from the 45/2.8P and 16/3.5.

My wife was going through the archives looking for some new photos to put up on facebook and the like, so I figured I'd share a couple that she pulled.

Both with the 28/2 AIS, first is SOOC:

Third is the 2 of us. Tough to get a selfie with the 55/1.2 wide open, even tougher to get a photo of just me with any manual lens. As a left eyed, glasses wearing, non-photographer, the wife hates MF'ing. I thought of cheating and putting up a x100 shot of me/us until I found this one:

Dylan,
The ones of you out of the frame are much better!

Just a couple from me.

The syrphid hover fly's taken with 180mm f2.8 Ai with PK-13 ISO400 1/320th @ f8

The droplets of water on the leaf had the same set up - perhaps I should have photo-stacked them for more DOF

C+C welcome as always.

Steve


Steve, I like the dew drops on the leaves. Nice graphics.

I joined the 28mm f/2.8 ais club this week. A friend and I ventured out this morning, before the heat of the day (104F), to test lenses.

The 28 was the only MF lens I used so I can't show everything here, but it was a successful morning.

I've been using MF lenses so often lately that when I switched to an AF lens I fumbled with the control wheels to change the aperture.



Very nice set Larry.

Here are a few from the farmers market yesterday, all with the 50/1.2. I seem to be shooting a lot lately in the 50mm and wider range, not like me at all.

Leighton, these are all very nice. Wonderful rich colors in the first and the condensation droplets on the eggs in the second.

The wife thinks you're funny. Now I'm mad at her. Thanks!

I still can't figure out Dylan what that beautiful woman is doing with you...

Nice set and thanks for the self portrait. You don't look ANYTHING like I thought you would... whatever that means. You're actually a good looking dude... she did okay by herself..

Thx for the nice comments everyone. What I noticed while shooting is, that reading this thread has really opened my photographic horizon. This is due to the diversity of styles and subjects I see on this thread. Even though we all have one common denominator in the Nikon MF lenses, we all have our own way of viewing and documenting scenes. It has really inspired me and showed me new ways to approach both shooting and post processing. So thanks for all that post and participate.

Here are a few more from yesterday.

Bert







Very nice way to put it Bert. I feel the same way.

I simply LOVE this shot and I love the rim of light on each OOF peach. I'm not sure what caused this, but I like it.

+1 Bert. Very nice image of the peaches.

Kevin, great set from the college. I'm with a few others in having special appreciation for the crossed feet, especially with those cute shoes. Nice work all the way around.

Sweet work with the 135 Chuong. I can imagine Leighton turning away when you and Ronny run out photos from the 135 f/2 for fear the temptation will become too great. Winter's around the corner and farmers don't make a great deal of money when there is snow on the ground...

Did I hear chum?

28 f/2.8, AI-s 28 f/2 AI-s, 24 f/2.8 AI-s, 20 f/2.8 AI-s... does that help at all Chin?


Heh I knew you'd reply. Am looking at the 28mm range I suppose. From Bjorn's website and photosynthesis, I gather there's not much of a difference in optical quality? The f/2.8 version is smaller and lighter
