Nice acquisitions Ram. I had the 80-200/4.5 for a while. I loved it with tubes. It was my second most used lens in my kit. Shots are with my previous D7000 and some of them are using tubes.

Ken, the Ford Retractable is a stunning piece of automotive history - nice shots from this gem!

Curtis, I like the dark tones of your first 80-200/4.5-shot. The leaf-tip is fantastic, as is the heron-portrait.

David, love the seagull-sunset! Btw, thanks for the information about the B&W-sunset - a wonderful image, it looks great in color too, but it's awesome in B&W.

Ram, congrats to your new old lenses! Nice set - looking at your shadow I guess your jeans-size is 28/134 or something like this ;-)

Gregg, nice shot of "Bob's Highway Service" and very interesting facts about renting old buildings as film-locations. Thanks for sharing!

Andy, very nice set from Melbourne's waterfront!

Sar, wow, Joey looks kinda excited to be shot with a MF-Nikkor ;-) Awesome portrait

Buddy, best of luck to get your new 28/2NC to peak-performace!

Steve, nice impressions from Paris. The hat-set is great!

Peter from Madison, nice fisheye-macros!

Jose, thanks for your 300/4.5 vs 180/2.8+TC-comparison!

Ray, "Disney after dark" with the 35/1.4 Ais is very nice! My beaten-up Ai-copy of this Nikkor won't deliver this kind of colors and contrast anymore.

Kevin, fantastic close-up-shots with your 80-200/4.5! Wow!

Okay, I finally figured it out. Just right click on the image size you want hit 'copy link address", and when you paste, take the s off of https. I guess I'll get used to it.

Here's one from an untimely easter-market (lots of art handicraft):

Or you could do this too.

Copy the image url from browser.

Now add the word "sizes/l" in the end. This directly takes you to the large size 1024 image page.

On another note. thanks to this MF thread and a dear friend whom I was fortunate to befriend here, this beauty is now in my hands.
(both with the 50e f1.8 wide open)











She is an early 50's automat, a loved possession in a family till the owner passed away. Was treasured and displayed on a shelf till the son decided it needs to find a new home.


Lestor, congrats to your new old Rolleiflex! Love those old TLR's. My very first own camera was a Rolleicord-copy.
Hope you'll find a good lab and some time to discover your beautiful Automat.

A couple of street pix from Paris.

Though street dwellers are the same the world over I think.

The first is a shot of someone I thought was just an ageing hippy, chanting spiritual clap trap .... until I spotted the beer can .... then I revised my opinion .... just your average nutter then !!!

The second shot of a homeless person sorting out his place to sleep for the night and taking his assortment of possessions along for safety ......

Makes me think I might end up with a shopping trolley full of Nikon MF lenses as my valuables for my homeless trolley, let's hope it doesn't come to that .... hard times ...

using 50-135mm Leighton

The bokeh on your Easter market is brilliant Georg ...

Another shot of the expressions of love in Paris .....

Along the side of the Seine .....

I resisted the temptation to carve my love for Nikon MF into the bark ...

Sorry, this is an old one that I wanted to use as a test post.




I found out that you can just use the "push pin" in the share window to post your image using the new interface. Looks like this:

Scott, I really like your winter-shots, even if those were taken in "spring". The framing is great and the colors exactly reproduce a "rural winter"-feel.


Can't help it, here's a shot from a stubblefield too, this one taken today a few minutes from my home:

Stoppelfeld von georgsfoto auf Flickr
D700 + scratched Ais-Nikkor 400/3.5 IF-ED at f/3.5, no cropping - I like this lens more and more



Georg, this is very nice. I like the texture contrast between the corn stubble and the flowering tree in the distance. Looks like your spring is a bit farther along than here.

Thanks Lester. Apparently they did away with the BBCode when they changed the interface the other day. Now all you have to do is use the "push pin" see above.

Interestingly though, Georg noticed that it only changed with the English version and not the Dutch version, which he uses I guess.

Anyway, I seem to have a handle on it now.
