Perhaps that's just the way it is in France ......

Steve, such was the case when whe had great leaders....nowadays we would be plesaed to see our so-called leader striding somewhere purposefully.... but I have strong suspicion that some bronze statue of Mr Hollande be ever erected on the Champs Elysées.....

Jay, those little white and pink flowers in the botanical gardens are beautiful! And quite a fluffy tail on that sleeping cat.

Chin, trying to understand how that automated pharmacy machine works, but very nicely done.

Ken, agreed on your skateboard preferences And nice look at the Helen/Bavarian cottage.

Steve, you really handheld those 1000mm and 2000mm shots Wow! Nice birds and technique.

Ray, still enjoying the results of your latest love, the 135mm f2

Georg, nice look at the person on the roof, great use of your new 400mm tele in combination with the V1! He seems to be doing pretty well exposed to the elements like that The left gull is keeping an eye on you. Thanks for the pic of the V1 + 400 3.5 setup. And those clouds behind that second image are superbly done.

Philippe, what a nice scene of the dancing couple in Lyon, with the backpacking soccer player in the background!!!

Ben, your assistant is photogenic and surrounded by colors! Very nice pics and cute baby!

Ronny, love the snarling Nitro pic!

Joan, nice pic of the frog fountain with the 80-200.

Gregg, love all those pics with the yellow and red flowers on the ground.

Andy, another cool place to walk into. And Ms. Allen's Hair Restorer is a beauty. The figure controllers are funny.

Chuong, nice set, both the flowers through the window and portrait of your daughter.

James, your cat sure knows how to maintain a regal pose whether confronted with a fisheye or a regular wide angle lens.

Chin, I really liked your pic of the temple. Didn't notice it was taken with Ultramax too, very nice bright colors. And that double staircase with reflection is outstanding! I think the film shines outdoors with bright colors. I like what it does to yellow, red and green. Thanks.

Anil in NJ, is that your first pic here? Beautiful flower with the 75-150 E! Welcome to this amazing and friendly thread.

Steve, good views of the statues of the French leaders. Thanks for the comment on the NY pic looking Parisienne, although don't know if people from either city like being compared to the other?

Nuno, always great pics of your dog!

David in Australia, very scenic view of the waterfront.

Thanks folks for the comments and likes on the posts.

Thanks for the likes everyone! There are so many fine photos uploaded daily on this forum that I find myself "liking" so many that I sometimes feel guilty when reading the sequential comments that some members take the time to compose. Rest assured that I look at each and every post despite not commenting as often as I'd like.....

It's off to bed in Oz for now, and I leave you with a three image pano taken with my current favourite MF lens... the 28 2.8 ais

Cheers and good light,
David


David, that is gorgeous! Very well done.

So here are my keepers from my "Series E only" outing.

Lenses used are the 28/2.8, 50/1.8, and the 75-150/3.5 (in the registry, it is listed as 80)

First up is a "reversed" shot with the 50mm @f/5.6

I think some of you will remember this building; at least the top of it. This is the Student Center at the campus I work at.

Hi guys
Been thinking for a while about getting a 300mm ED ai-s .. but perhaps found a
300 f2.8 Ai-s for a good price that will be in good condition ..
What say you? Anyone have experience with it?

Joan, I like the diagonal framing of the well-image.

Chuong, great shot of your kids!

Samy, love the backlight and subject isolation of your "spring-shot". Nice picture from the busy Central Park!

Ray, very nice set from the botanical garden. My personal fav is the plant with the 55/1.2 - great framing and beautiful color-mix.

Chin, superbe composition and nice grain on your fine shot from the Convention Centre.

David, love the beach-scape, your composition is very nice.

Nuno, very nice dog-portraits - the 105/2.5 seem to work very, very well with the D610. Greetings from a southern part of the Östersjön ;-)

Ronny, beautiful close-ups!

Rafael, love your car-shots with the 5.8cm Nikkor. Exemplary work with the shallow DoF. I also like the tones and colors, very nice match for the subjects. Any special processing in Nikon Capture?

Steve, the French leaders of the past seem to be on the move. I wonder if Sarkozy will be displayed with a high-pressure-cleaner and his replacement on a scooter. Modern times…

Andy, wow, thanks for sharing another „Blast from the past"! I really like your take on those lovely subjects. The processing of the first shots is great, very moody.

Gregg, love the powerline/poppies-picture.
