-3 here this morning. This was the window in one of the bedrooms upstairs taken with the neglected 55/2.8.

Leighton, wow, that's wonderful! Sometimes I think mother nature is the greatest artist. That said, those pieces of art need to be properly captured like in this beautiful example.

Nice shooting everyone!
Ray That Florida pier shot looks good with the beautiful skies, but are those a couple of gators in the water to the right?
Ray (Ohio) Beautiful cold looking fence shot. I've seen that color in twilight on very very cold days, good eye.
Georg I like the flare! And the B&W(!) fireworks shot.
Leighton Ice on the window makes a neat filter. The lower part looks like a stream bed. Really cool in more ways than one!
Steve I like the dark shadow rays in the reverse sunset pano.
Ken Love the Longboat Key sky. I wonder what happened at happy hour to warrant such a sign.
Andy Great to see your part of the world. Those macros are very interesting.
Chin Like the Train is Coming a lot!
Scott The wreaths in the snow shot is fine.
Jose Lots of detail in your macros.

Here's one from a recent road trip. That puddle is probably frozen solid today!

Andy terrific macros
Thank you Georg I tried a lot of different angles but settled on this one I am enjoying your flare's
Ray I too love the pink cast in your winter scene
Leighton your frost photo is very nice. Such details
Thank you Jay. I am not sure what they were but I think they were ducks. Nice shot of the store. The signs are classics


Here's the photo recommended by Georg from yesterday

Thanks for the comments and likes guys!

Jay - Looking at those signs makes me think how anybody could afford to smoke.

Ray - Beautifully processed, For a split second, I thought the Spanish Moss was icicles!

Thanks Leighton. If I had taken the photo today there might very well be icicles. It really has turned cold in sunny Florida. It won't last though back to the 80's on the weekend

After reading Thomas Pindelski's blog and his view on the 500mm reflex Nikkor, I dug mine out of the cupboard this rainy morning and got these.

His blog reference is http://pindelski.org/Photography/2012/03/07/nikkor-50mm-f8n-ai-reflex/

Thanks for the comments everyone.

Steve, I hail from Rochester NY, although the Rochester in MN is likely much colder right now! Very nice sunset pano.

Ray (OH), I like the winter sunset. Great colors.

Leighton, the frosty window pane is terrific. I have tried these before and like a snowflake, no two are alike. It was minus something here this morning, still around +1F right now at noon. Very windy with a dangerous wind chill factor. Stay safe everyone.

Very nice Peter, especially the last one. We don't often see this lens shared on here and it's always a treat when we do.

Thanks Scott. I heard you guys are going to get dumped on with lake effects.

Nice shots. It looks a whole lot better than my non-nikkor example.
That blog is enjoyable, and I liked reading about his CPU installations. He shows a good example of AI vs the linear AIS aperture control as it effects metering.

Thank you Ray and Don.

Don, I love the mood that the background gives in this one. The rainy night adds a lot as well.
