Leighton I love that O-dark thirty ...... rich colours and nice star-bursts .... one of my favourites

And the Jazz singer in monochrome has such a great feel to it.

As always you done good Leighton.

Leighton,

Count me in on praising that first shot, although as I recall "zero-dark-thirty" there was a line of Marines ahead of me, and one behind me, and several angry men with funny hats yelling at all of us. Something about us being "maggots." And that was just for breakfast!

Seriously, that 50-135 is a sweet lens, especially coupled with the 25-50. If it ever stops raining here (6 days straight) I will break them out...

Meanwhile, great photo!

I'm a sadist for this thread ... did this with the 45mm stitching multi-row shots when the 14-24mm would have done the job aptly

The night lights at the Marina Bay Sands casino and resort

A little bit of straightening too.

Steve - thanks for the comments. I like the blue cock and the gurad's plumes.
The Houses of Parliament pano is exceptional.

Phillippe - lovely girls well captured

Samy - thanks

Ray - gorgeous flowers and thanks

Buddy - great spider but I still get the creeps

Chuong - excellent close ups

Scott - thank you. I'm a bit shy of shooting strangers so much to Ingrid's amusement who thought I looked a bit like Inspector Clouseau (Pink Panther), I walked along with my camera set to about 3 metres @f8 and fired away from the waist. These are some of the results

Rafaerl - thanks and I also love bouganvillea

Leighton - really good series. Just about time for the great pumpkin, isn't it? Halloween is not a big deal here and we tend to look on with mild amazement at the American grandchildren.

Chin - a super panorama

Hi gang, I've sorta been lying low with an eye issue recently, but it's getting better and I wanted to get back on the horse.

Some really fine work over the past week:

Samy, very interesting shots from Baltimore. I really like the Norman Gothic church.

Tom, very enjoyable Ektar shots.

Georg, love the buildings. The first shot made me think of "architectural soup."

Chuong, cool bubbles. Congrats on your new Nikon cannon!

Ron, I like the C&D canal shot a lot. I wonder what it would look like if you let the top 25% of the frame go to pure black?

Ray, excellent flora photos.

Scott, love the windows of the picnic shelter and the bridge shots.

Kevin, you achieved a great look on your stadium shots.

John, "woman with her dog" is a terrific pano.

Leighton, great work with the colorful carrots and the early morning market shot.

Jay, beautiful landscape with the 35/3.5 and polarizer.

Jim, congrats on your new gear and the hummingbirds.

Ronny, wonderful landscapes!

Jose, the shot of Mr. Toad is very cool.

Buddy, I really like the shot of your dog with the 105/2.5.

Jim, terrific work with Phyll.

Matthew, wonderful shot with your 55/3.5.

Peter, very interesting photo and history about the Air India Constellation.

Steve, really like the blue bird and tassel shots.

Philippe, beautiful portraits of your daughters.

Anthony, great looking dog!

Rafael, terrific bougainvilleas, especially the 2nd shot.

Chin, love the look of "listening to chatter."

Thanks Jeff. I hope you're on the mend and can contribute again. That eye problem sure has been an issue with you.

Thanks Leighton. Yep, it's getting kinda old, but then so am I.

I did get out this week, after dark, to get some shots of the setting crescent moon. The clouds cooperated just enough so a few turned out ok.

Just a few from the Market yesterday. It rained all day so I didn't get to shoot as much as I'd like. All with the 50-135/3.5.



O-dark thirty, before the vendors arrive.

I really like this one's colors and streetlight stars, you must have used a slow shutter speed and have a steady hand.
