Steve, love that scene of the dark street lit up by light coming through the bars, well seen and caught!!!

Leighton, the colors on the ties made me smile, very nice. You should save the cute pictures of Gus so you can later show us a before and after comparison when he is at his 125 pound mark And I still have a downtown Portland door to share, just have to get around to it

Jeff, very eye catching abstract! Your work at the seaside has been very enjoyable.

Ronny, the flowers taken with 135 f2 + tubes is one of your trademarks. Great job yet again.

Ray, I really liked the complete picture quite a bit before Leighton made you chop off the left half

Chin your B&W pics have been very enjoyable!

Scott, loved the old tree branch and deep colors in the water and the sky, everything about that shot.

Geoff, welcome. Since you've discovered these lenses make the D800 sing, you should be ready to check out the multitude of choices here:
http://www.photosynthesis.co.nz/nikon/lenses.html

James, your lone tree B&W is amazing, definitely wall quality. And adorable cuddling kitties!

Dean, beautiful glimpse of Italy's Amalfi coast.

Jose, enjoyed the jacaranda flowers and hope you can sneak away time to share your pics again soon!

Georg, loved the pic at the art exhibit with the hand gestures!!

Sam, thanks for sharing flowers, moth, dragonfly and raw pecan pics from Texas. Very nice.

Socalpicman, the middle three seem the best subject for that fisheye. Maybe try other subjects too, although I am the wrong person to give you advice, I usually struggle with wide angle framing.

Dustin, very nice portrait pics of that dog. I see you have the 135mm 3.5 too. I have grown to really like that lens. And check out the photosynthesis site earlier in the post, if you want to get familiar with more manual glass to acquire

Peter (Madison), really nice pano at the air museum. Looks like the cargo air section.

Peter (Knysna), thanks. You had a very cool image some pages back that I couldn't comment on when I was on my trip earlier this week.

Steve, the bread in the first pic from the Manchester version of farmers market looks delicious. And great job spying Ben window shopping at the Leica store

James, thanks for posting the frame comparison from 16mm to 35mm! What's the 17mm lens, or is that a zoom?

A little abstract with the 50/1.2. These are a few of the different colored wire ties we use for the salad greens. That way we can tell whats what.

Very nice, Leighton ... it's always good to get a little abstract now and then

With many apologies to you all for being remiss in commenting on some of the most remarkable photos.... You all just plain good!!! I'll add a few from my Nikon F4 and the 85/1.4. I'm still learning how to work with film and MF - damn, this is expensive!! These shots emerge as the only "keepers" from about $150 worth of processing, etc. What have I learned one CANNOT use a picture taking approach that follows from using digital equipment. All taken using Portra 400 and PP'd enough to get what I saw.

Dean great vacation shots, looking forward to more
Anthonysemone I like the building shot, is that an older building has a interesting look/materials to it. Mural 1 I really like.

JD

PS I finally found the like button on this site I guess I have been so mesmerized by the great pictures. Went on a like spree for a number of pages back

A shot using the 180mm 2.8 AIS. I was driving home yesterday and saw this old barn. I had noticed it a long time ago but had never stopped. This time I did




Ray, I am glad you stopped to take the image. Nicely done!

Walking back the car park this evening.

I wandered under the railway arches and found this interesting gateway with interesting light pattern shining through.

I thought it deserved the monochrome treatment.

Thanks to everyone for all the nice comments on the tree, and kitties.

Samy, the 17mm is an old MF Tokina that has a decidedly Nikkor type build and rendering style. It was only 1/6 th of the lenses tested, but it was a slip up on my part. I particularly was amazed at the difference in coverage from a 16mm fish-eye to a 17mm rectilinear lens.

I personally like rectilinear lenses over fisheye... But that's just me.

Nice, Anthony. Great to see more and more people using film on the thread.
