Georg, terrific series! That is one big piece of pipe. The diameter of the steel cables in this shot are amazing!


I agree, great set Georg, and the steel cables really put it in perspective.

BTW, we lifted the 4 shot rule, so post away!

Scott - congrats on the new lens, what a nice scene. I can't wait for the Fall colors to show up here.

Andy - Nice looking Tempest, yours?

Ray - I enjoyed the set, I like the last one the best.

Geoff - Great images. They remind me of a scene from a PBS special set in WWll England. Well done.

Tweed-themed event? That's a marvelous idea! Love the one with the kid

Ratty, we used to have a "4 limit rule" back when the the thread was moving at warp speed in order to help folks keep up. I think we all agreed recently to lift that so post away if you have them. Having said that, I still believe it would be nice if people wouldn't post dozens of images all at once.

Geoff, that's a very nice set from a really fancy event! The portrait of the boy is my personal fav.

Scott, congrats to your 24/2.8! Love the late-summer-colors on your fine landscape.

Andy, Jay, Ray & Ray: thanks for sharing your beautiful car-photographs!

Ray, I like the first shot of your flower-set the most. Very atmospheric shots from the band-day, my fav here is the band in color.

Steve, the B&W-portrait of John is really great. Love the narrowboat-series!

Sam, the soft colors on "Purple Sage" are wonderful.

Ben, nice candid with the 400/5.6! The lady looks like she is enjoying a nice day, a fair subject (or would "fair game" be proper English?) ;-)

Chin, "Houdini" is a fantastic subject, well photographed.

John from LA, welcome here! Wonderful and inspiring work, my personal favorite is the second portrait. Hope to see more of your photography soon.

Chuong, is the tunnel in your latest shots the one from the price-winning piano-image? Anyway, very nice work!
Alan, I'm really glad to read that Malachi is healthy again. Sorry to hear that you have to let some gear go...

Rafael, the church-set is really nice. Love the first interior-shot and the altars-image.

Leighton, "Contemplation" is a mighty fine picture. "Meeting Friends" too.

Jeff, nice work with the superfast 50!

Samy, the wooden house works great in B&W.


Sorry, I've missed some great posts :-/
Thanks for he feedback on the Bonsai- and Monopile-shots!

It would also help a little if images are removed when replying via quote, if possible

Steve - more excellent images

Ben - the 400mm is perfect for bird images - esp[ecially "old birds"

Sam - very nice renedering of the flowers

Chin - your prose/poetry is as good as your images and makes them very meaningful

Jay - nice car shots

Alan - congrats on little Malachi - he's a beaut

Rafael - the 15mm saga was worth it - lovely images

Ray - your lady looks like good fun and the band and bar images are reaqlly good. The 300 EDIF is a great lens - one of my best - and you do it justice.

Jay - very nice car and beautifully captured. Tack sharp!! ( to coin a cliche )

Georg - excellent series. I think the lady form Alaska smoked a pipe!!

Scott - I think the lens is a keeper. Nice shot.

Ray - I like the car images. Is that an Impala or a Biscayne? We used to get them all out here as both GM and Ford have had assembly plants in SA since the 1920's.

Andy - very nice images of a brute of a car.

Geoff - the tweed ride images are fantastic. They could be stills from a "turn of the (19/20) century" TV series. Among the very best ever on this thread, which says a great deal. Well done.

Heh georg, I don't know why but I immediately thought of tiny people struggling with strands of pasta, instead of thick thick steel cables
Also never quite noticed the 20mm was such a fantastic performer, everything just pops

Geoff - nice set! For me the colour ones seem to work better than the sepia tones.

All views gratefully accepted, as I'm very mixed about this.

Clearly there are technical flaws but then I think it works. But then I see the flaws again. I don't know. The main thing I love is how strong she looks, in contrast to some other shots I've done (of other people) that tend to emphasise vulnerability.

Mix of flash to right and gelled video light to left.

What a treat it is to see great images from parts of the world I've never visited.
Those temples, huge pipes wrestled by heroic men, and scenes from England all in one thread make visiting a pleasure.

Here's yet another car in the same parking lot, at least it is not a Ford this time.
