I looked at the image on two different monitors, both calibrated. Depending on the viewing angle on one of them it looks a tad underexposed. The other one (stationary monitor) looks like what Georg posted...fine exposure, but the faces are a bit dark.

Robson, amazing micro-shots! Did you hand-hold these?


Georg: yes, i did hand hold these, but i used flash so i could get more depth of field and a faster shutter speed. I think i was using f11 with the reverse mounted 35mm?

Thank you everyone for your comments! I don't do too many macro's!!

I just love this thread!! There are so many fabulous shots here! And all with crappy old lenses that no one would want! Why even bother with these pieces of junk when you could have a much bigger and heavier, less versitile and more expensive AF-S type G lens instead!!

Thanks, Chin! She was performing a one-song-playback-show, don't recall the lyrics, some locally produced carnival-sway-and-drink type of song.
I was standing in front of the speakers, oh no, please, have mercy!

Btw, love your sunset-photograph! Outstanding work as usual.

Jay, very nice pano! Did you move the whole camera or just the lens? The 45 PC-E is already one of my favorite MF-Nikkors, I just wish it would come in a smaller package ;-)
PS: Love, love, love the last fall-color-shot! The light and colors are fantastic.



Georg I like the lens but don't use it much. I used some small amount of rise and pivoted the lens on a rail.

Thought I would share a shot I took with the Nikkor 50/1.4 K on the Fuji X-E1. Was thinking about Ronny when I took this one. Now granted, I don't have the full editing arsenal on my laptop as I do on my desktop, but this is a LR5.2 edit using stock tools. I like how it came out. Would love to hear your thoughts... Still learning LR. Miss you folks.

And AF as well. I already figured that those two facts would disqualify the picture from being posted.

She´s a very talented photographer though, so I keep forgiving her for such obvious mistakes

If you can get that close then that is no shy bird. Very nice capture and one of my favorite focal lengths too.

Thanks for your comments on the fisheye-portraits, Ray and Jay - really much appreciated!

Here's another portrait, shot today with my old and scratched SC Auto 50/1.4:

start into the carnival-season - not exactly my way to spend spare time ;-)
This lady and many other alarming cheerful revelers were flooding the city hall today...


Greta shot, Georg. Love your processing as always.

It is because we are homeless hobos pushing supermarket carts full of old lenses that we found in the recycling bin.

Rafael, you could hook the supermarket cart full of old lenses onto your Vette ;-) Honestly, I really doubt your cameras and lenses in pristine condition are from the recycling bin. I would expect to have to pay premium for stuff in absolutely mint collectors condition.
Sometimes I get abused lenses for little money to try them out - if I really like the lens, I could get an example in better condition later.
