Lots of activity on the thread the past day.

Rick, great macros with the 200 f4 micro.

Philippe, really like the second chocolate shop image. Great detail!

Steve, neat street scenes.

Jose, great work with the 75-150 E. The color and clarity are fantastic.

Ray (OH), I like the frosty leaf. I am afraid there is more of that coming soon.

Agent Bird, great series. I especially like the pilings, the statue, and the mini in the street.

Chuong, nice rich colors in the table lamp.

4mpx, the guys in the second image has nice dental work! Way to close for me. What is he?

Thanks to Philippe, Leighton, Jeff, and Ray (FL) for the comments on the Winter Waits series.

Ray (OH), no Amtrak police around when I took this one. I have heard of other photographers being asked to leave when taking photos at Amtrak stations.

Peter great job capturing that wild garlic. It makes a beautiful photo.

Agent Bird looks like your T&S is working just right. I like the starburst through the statue.

Chuong for all the bad I have heard about this lens you make it shine - very nice

Sar your owl photo is beautiful and at 50mm you must have been pretty close.
Just as a note it's a good idea to put your name in your profile because we try to go by first names here. Some have neglected to do this for some strange reason that's beyond me

I did manage to get out of the house yesterday with the 50mm 1.4K to take a couple of photos from around our complex

Thanks Scott and Ray.
I didn't think I would like the bokeh either. I leaned that if the background doesn't have a harsh lighting condition, it will be alright (as in the case with my post).

I am still under identity crisis and I have one more lens that I want to try, the 35mm f1.4 AIS

Nice shots with the 50K. It has taken over as my favorite 50, beating out my 50/1.8 Series E.

Scott - nice set with the 200 Micro! I especially like #3, love how you've captured the wonderful late-fall-atmosphere. The side-kight works great here.

Rick, wow, great work with the 200/4 Micro! I like the first 2 shots a lot, thanks for sharing!

Philippe, the 28mm-B&W-shot of the shop is a bit unusual. I like the scene and your framing a lot, I just wonder how it would look processed in a more grainy, film-like style ;-)

Steve, I like the mood of your Les Miserables-image. Nice set with the venerable 24/2.8! Did you straighten the lines in post?

Jose, the lake-pano is wonderful. The lack of signs of what we call "civilization" is nice to see ;-) The Ibis is very nicely captured. I see a trend to use shorter focal-legths for birding lately

Ray from Ohio, nice and very pleasing "placid" bench-shot. Love the rimy leaf!

Peter from Madison, very cool camera-porn! The light is perfect to my eyes. Shot #1 is my favorite for it's framing.

Peter from Knysna, lovely Garlic-image! I like the slightly soft rendering of the blossom and the colors a lot.

Anton, another fantastic set with the 45 PC-E! My personal favorites are #3 and 4, excellent photographs.

Chuong, nice to see you posting again! Nice shot with the 24/2, a great reminder to use this fine lens more.

Sar, your owl-portrait with the 50mm is awesome! I'm really glad you've found this thread. The Tasmanian Devil is very cool, never seen one in natura, only the fishing lure of the same name ;-)

Ray from Florida, what's up with Florida? No sun? Nice work with your 50/1.4K, the pond-scene is very sharp and the blossom rendered in a wonderful creamy fashion.

Ray & Ray, Steve, Scott, Philippe and Jeff - thanks for your kind words! I really enjoy the 135/2.8Q, a very nice handling lens.
A really large christmas fair will start here this week, time to grab the ear-protectors and a couple of MF-Nikkors to capture some OOF-highlights ;-)

Thanks everyone for the kind comments.


Some of the last from Bariloche, Argentina:

Alternative pano of the Ventisquero Negro Glacier:

General view - 11 vertical (portrait) shots pano.

This is a glacier near Cerro Tronador in Nahuel Huapi National Park, Bariloche Argentina.
Oh, why this stupid old white beard guy did not put the 16/3.5 in the bag



And additional closer views of the truly dirt "icebergs":

Nice marsupial, its cool to see something other than a kangaroo,Koala, or a wombat! However, kangaroo's are cool too! Was it easy to find a Tasmanian devil, in your neck of the woods, or is this one domesticated? Great capture, thanks for sharing! Only marsupial in my area, of Central California, are opossums, they love to eat the out door cats food, and usually at 3: A.M., when I'm to tired to grab my camera!

Is there such a thing as "one" more lens to buy.

Hihi, thank you Kwoodard!! That's what I thought too. I was laying low on the ground for this shot. My mosquito friends were really happy, I think I heard them screaming: FREE BUFFET!!
