Thanks everyone for the kind comments. By the way, the spider head was at the left side.

I add to the Leighton's congrats for the 3500 pages!


One more sample with the humble 75-150/3.5 E + PN-11 tube:


Grasshoper with nikon 75-150mm + tube by labecoaves, on Flickr

D600 + PN-11 (52.5mm) tube + Nikon 75-150mm f/3.5 E @ 150mm hand held, ISO 320, f/8 at 1/400s. ~15% cropped. I think this this humble and cheap zoom performs very well for close ups, with the flexibility of zooming and the additional working distance of the 135-150mm range.
Georg, by coincidence I bought this lens in pristine condition last year from a compatriot of you, soon before he was leaving Brazil to Germany.

Leighton, superb colors in the Shenandoah skies!

Chin, that pic of the guy in focus with the 135 2.8 lens is outstanding!!

Don, someday I will start to see your pics in nightmares. They are always eerie.

Scott, I absolutely love the grainery shot. Superb gray tones!

Mihai, happy to hear from you and hope you are doing well out there.

Peter has company now for 500mm reflex shots! Chuong, congrats and very nice one of the squirrel. I like what the lens did to the branches behind the squirrel, good character in that bokeh.

Guys, I have never gotten into bikes or understand the torque talk, but I like the bike in the snow pic by Georg

Here's the fastest bike I've ever driven:

Cool looking bike.

Ken, nice action-shots from the wheelchair-basketballers! I've shot the same sports yesterday, but relied on my AF-lenses. Great sports for sure and very intense.



Intense is the right way to say it. I wasn't prepared for anything like I saw and went back to the truck for my D700 bag which is all MF. Each player gave a 110% In this shot heavily cropped with the 50-135 you can see a photographer (purple shirt) behind the ball shooting the Nikon 200-400F4. He shoots these sports all the time and offered to sell me an 85 F2 AiS and I'll take him up on it!

Rafael, cool use of the 28 3.5 PC for imaging the farmhouse waiting for Leighton! And always fun to see your immaculate collection.

Ken, those pictures are very powerful, definitely captured the intensity of the players.

Eric, wow, that looks like a frozen dam in Quebec!

Since we're talking motorcycles...here I am somewhere south of Jacksboro, Texas, on my Kawasaki KLR650. Photo taken by my son, Chris on our June Dual-sport ride.

Nikon D7000, Nikkor 20mm 4.0 K lens, 1/800 @ f8, ISO 200. Zone focus.

Pleasure Pier on Galveston Island, Texas, at sunset.

Nikon D7000, Nikkor 180mm 2.8 Ais, 1/50 @ f8, ISO 640, handheld.



This is one of my favorite photos because of the lighting, composition and juxtaposition of the "lovers". I actually tried selling it to our state magazine "Texas Highways" and the photo editor loved it, but mentioned that it wasn't sharp. Unfortunately, viewed up close and larger, there is some camera shake to mar the image.

That's an award winner in my opinion, it was the magazine's loss. Sharpness isn't the end all.

Continuing the series on Baltimore architecture, here's two interesting street corners next to each other. With the 28 3.5 PC.

The moon tonight is so clear. I had to put on the TC-200+TC14b+Nikkor 600mm f5.6 on my D2x







On tripod but I think it's still a bit off. Too cold to continue so this is the best I could get with no cropping.
I am not sure what that bright spot on the left is.

Could be whomever landed a rover on the moon recently. If I am doing my math right, that is a 2520mm equivalent. WOW!

Thought it was time I tried to make a contribution to this venerable thread. This one of Elliott Bay in Seattle this stormy afternoon, shot using the Df with a Nikkor-Q 135mm f/3.5 (@ f/8) from 1962 mounted:

Nice image and it certainly captured the feel of the day.
