Tokina 90.

Thanks for the warm welcome! Lots of nice photos since my last post, especially sebboh's heron and Jacob's trees. plasticmotif's Tokina shots were also very nice, even though they remind my of my lost bokina :P Long story short: bought bokina online, arrived with non-functional aperture, Swedish postal service lost it on the way to repair. Still feel a bit sad that there's a bokina all alone and lost out there.

I got a C/Y Sonnar 85/2.8 and some extension tubes instead, here's some oddly colored wood anemones I shot last spring with it:

And when I got tired of fiddling with the tubes I got the C/Y S-Planar 60/2.8:

Mine is the Bokina Sorry to hear your bad luck with the lens.

I love the deep, viscous colors in the last. Reminds me of the Sigma 105mm Macro (non OS), which I wish I would have kept.

You two with the flower shots! Enough already. I don't need another reason for more glass but you aren't helping me resist a nice macro. Beautiful shots.

Norfolk Western ran a steam excursion through the area over the last couple of days. Got this one when it steamed through Bedford Va. Nex7 contax 90 F2 G.

I miss the desert. I don't miss the traffic and other big city stuff of Phoenix but I miss the wilderness of Arizona. Love the shots of the desert and especially the Superstitions. Great shots Ebookman.

Any more from the Grand Canyon State. I'm partial to Northern Az.

I'm not quite old enough to remember steam locomotives, so I live vicariously through fine photographs of them, like your dynamic shot above. Everything is well doneŚcomposition, depth, motion, and the processing as a monochrome. Thanks for the "new" memory!

Thanks, I'm extremely happy with this one, after my first attempts at shooting it I almost bagged it and went home. It was an out and back run. On the way out I tried to get some shots and failed miserably. I was trying to juggle focus and was trying to shoot continuously which blacked out the screen too much. It was my first 'action' shooting since switching from an SLR and I wasn't ready for the limitations.

For the second shot of it coming back through I set everything up much more carefully and decided I'd have time for about 3 shots as it went by at 45 mph. This is number two. The others were good but this one hit the mark.

Beautiful exposures. On this forum, it is easy to forget there is a kit lens. Very well done.

plasticmotif, beautiful color and transition to out of focus on the first flower photo.
perost, I like the second photo best. great contrast and separation.
Vaughn, excellent shot of that train. Thanks for detailing the acquisition. It's easy to visit this thread and get the impression that every photo members take are killer images right out of the box, first try.
xbarcelo, nice composition and colors. I'd love to see it bigger.
ebookman, excellent scapes, I like #2 and #4 the best. My family is heading out to Scottsdale in a couple weeks, can't wait to escape this nasty Michigan weather.
Highfive, gorgeous colors. I really like #2, the placement of the reflective patch makes the photo.
sebboh, the first one is awesome. The out of focus elements complement the subject well, and are a perfect mix of smooth and "interesting".
joevain, nicely captured in #1. The cool-warm contrast is great.
Jim, I've lurked here for awhile, and I love your signature look. #3 is my favorite.
