Ronny outstanding shot. Such color and detail!
Chuong I absolutely love the doorknob. Excellent use of a fantastic lens!

Some shots from the local christmas-fair. This market/fair is really large and I couldn't make it to the piggy-roof ;-) At least I have some weeks to get a nicer shot of the "Bratwurst-Bude".

Couldn't find a decent view for or with the 16/3.5, this was shot from a monopod

D3s, 16/3.5 Fisheye-Nikkor at f/5.6, 1/8sec from a monopod, ISO1000


D3s at ISO400, Ais 50/1.2 at f/2.8, 1/25sec from a monopod
A longer shutter-speed would have "caught" more of the blinking lights in "switched-on-mode", but would have blurred the moving people more.
Maybe I try something with a really long shutter-speed.

I was not the only one taking pictures:

Ais 105/1.8 at f/2, D3s at ISO800,1/100sec. framing is sub-optimal, had problems to find a safe place in the crowd ;-)


Nice series Georg. Great detail and colors. No tripod too! Nicely done.

The snow has decided to stay.

I revisited the sunflower field with the 200 f4 micro. Then a couple images of some bittersweet. Lastly a b&w conversion of an intensely blue sky, bare trees, and snow.

Thanks for looking.
Scott


Man, am I glad you kept the snow up there! What a nice set, I love the last two. Good shooting friend.


Thank you Leighton. It had stayed cold so the snow has hung on (literally). Today it moved into the high 30's with rain. Can you say ugly.

Bought this lens from Choung recently and he delivered it to Kentucky for me
I like the 35 FOV on the crop camera
I haven't been in snow in 40 years and with lows in the teens I couldn't wait to get back to Florida

Hi Reagan. Good to see you back! When I looked at your images I thought "wow, snow in Florida!"

Thanks Leighton

Here's a preview. Sorta. I kinda have a rule that I must finish my prev set before moving on to a new one so I gotta finish up the Australia photos first ;p

Looks so unreal... but it's one of the rare times for me that it comes out the way I want it without any PP *cough cough*
Tokyo Station and Marunouchi Square from the new-ish mall (atop the refurbished Central Post Office)

I closed my eyes tight against the wind
And wished for my 14-24mm to appear in my bag... I really did

D700 + 28 2.8 AIS
Balanced atop the 1.5inch steel rail

Love it!!! So sharp and well composed.

The usual Rufous-bellied Thrush at the fruiting palm tree in front of my office window, ~10m.


Rufous-bellied Thrush with Nikkor 400mm f/5.6 K ai'd ED by labecoaves, on Flickr

D7000 + Nikkor 400mm f/5.6 K ai'd ED hand held but supported on the windowsill, ISO 800, wide open at 1/200s; ~10 m of distance, ~15% cropped.
Although harder to focus than the EDIF version, this 400/5.4 K ED non-IF performs better wide open.



Very nice Jose. Nice composition and colors. He reminds me of our robins.

Thanks for the comments guys
Chuong. Yes you deserve the credit I was a little bored
Great stuff by everyone
I am trying to stay away from even looking at the DF I don't even want to feel temptation

I can hear a voice on Reagan's shoulder chanting "Df, Df, Df,.........."

Very nice shots with the 85 1.4 Chuong. Glad to see you were able to corrupt Reagan.

Thank you everyone for the comments on the winter scenes.

You all are putting up some great images this weekend.

Not sure how i fell behind 8 pages but here goes:

Thanks for the comments on the fall pictures, nothing so colorful for awhile. I agree, I'll take diffraction softening to get DOF or sunburst anytime.

Leighton, nice family portraits.
Congrats on the Df to our fellow MF shooters!
Jose, love the Thrush portrait.
Scott, the red berries are great with the out of focus blue sky and clouds.
Eric, looks like you're starting on a grand adventure with the f1.2.
Georg the Christmas fair pictures are cool, good composition and exposure.
Chin, love the picture and narrative that accompanied the picture.
Chuong, the doorknob shot has a great look to it.

Weasel_Loader, congrats to your 85/1.4! Nice first shots, in terms of composition I prefer the one taken with the 50/1.2.

Reagan, congrats to your 24/2.8! The snow looks good captured with this lens ;-) Really like the tumbling snowflakes on the second shot and your first bokeh-play with the 105/2.5!

Philippe, love your angle of view on the museum-shot!

Chin, welcome back! Love the Tokyo-image - beautifully composed and processed. The muted colors and tones look a bit like a desaturated HDR. I like it a lot.

Jose, another wonderful bird-portrait! Did you notice a real improvement in terms of image-quality between D7000 and D7100?

Ronny, nice to see some of your amazing shots here again! I hope we see some beautiful Swedish snow-scapes soon ;-)

Chuong, love the door-knob!

Sorry, I've missed some great posts.

Thanks for the kind comments on the Christmas-fair-shots! Those were shot between two sports-events, I hope to get back there with less gear for some more street-like shots and another take on the piggy-roof...

My first own car was an East-German Trabant P601 - the legendary "Trabi". Most of those cars are gone forever, but a couple are still on the streets.
Stumbled over this example today, wearing the scars of the daily battle for a legal parking-place. Upcoming emotions made me shoot a frame ;-)

D700, Ais 135/2 wide open - bumper, rear fog light and exhaust pipe were not built this way, not even behind the Iron Curtain

Hi gang. Hope everyone in the States had a great Thanksgiving. My family and I got to spend it in Yosemite, which was a real treat. Will try to catch-up with the thread in the next few days, but wanted to share a couple shots.
