snapsy, that first one is great! How did you get all that lined up?!

Jim, great job with the self portrait.

ebookman, great capture. My Dad lives near Mt. Vernon, actually just outside of La Conner. I didn't know if you had been in that area much?

Jim: Thanks for the comments...and yes, I tried CS6, LR5.3, OpticsPro. This lens is really bad with backlight/high contrast. I got rid of my 400mm f4.5 for the same reason. I will go back to my 300L's in the future, this lens just doesn't play nice for me.

that's a shame i was thinking about both of those lenses. any idea how the nikkor ED 180/2.8 compares to the nFD 200/2.8?

Ambiguity of blackness

"One reason I like blackness in photography is because it often changes mood of the picture. In darkness things become more ambiguous and not so easily defined. When we don't see everything, our mind fulfills hidden details and bends the interpretation. If you ever walked alone in forest at night you know it's a short cut to our subconscious. Everyday things, which are boringly ordinary, change to something else."

Sebboh: I haven't used the ED 180/2.8 ever, so no first-person user report from me. I did see some posts that indicate the same/similar issues. I will just go back to using the FDn 80-200 f4 L (I have two copies) for the time being. I have been considering the Leica 180mm f3.4 APO, based on what Rich (Naturephoto1) has had to say about it. He has one hell-of-a stable of R-series glass, so I respect his owner/operator opinion.

Here are two from the FDn 300mm f4 L (all at f4), on the NEX 7, from this morning, and it has no CA issues....

Regards,

Edd

Day 5 of 365 - Heading home in black winter weather
"We are heading home from Christmas holidays. This particular winter in Finland has been abnormal because the lack of snow. Usually we have had a lot of snow by January, but for some reason there is none, at least in southern Finland. Scenes and landscapes look black and ugly because there is no white snow to illuminate them. But this suites me fine."

A visit to the neighborhood park. I know this stuff looks a bit like HDR but it is really the quality of the winter sunlight in the afternoon at this latitude. Part of the lake was icy but most of the lake was ice free.

Nex 6 and a Contax Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar 4/80-200 lens at the 200mm position.

Day 6 of 365 - Still life in darkness
"At daylight everything is obvious and photographs taken in such circumstances often encloses self-explanatory characteristics that makes us interpret them with 'declarative eye'. If you are a fledgling photographer like me and you've shown your work to others you know exactly what that declarative eye is. They glance at your work and immediately state the what it is: 'it's a door of apartment house' or something similar. Photographs are swiftly consumed by the declarative eye and often not given a second thought afterwards. It's a frustrating experience not having a appropriate connection."
