These images were taken several years ago, with a Nikon D800 camera and the Nikkor 45mm PC-E lens. The first image shows a super moon rising over Mount Shuksan. The second image shows a moon lit Mount Baker. Both images were taken the same evening near Artist's Point in Washington State.

Alice Thibodeaux in Natchez, MS.

I was walking around Natchez with the 24mm PC-E and this beauty asked for me to take her photo.

Keith,

The second picture is exceptional and worthy of a large print and frame. I cannot tell from the image you posted but personally I would do some dodging of the tree in the lower left quadrant of the frame. Worth a try to see how it affects the overall picture. As Ansel Adams famously stated, "you don't take a photograph, you make it".

I used that second image for the front cover of a 2018 calendar, and did exactly what you suggested. A very slight adjustment to the trees in the lower left portion of the image did make the image stronger, in my opinion. Thanks for passing along your thoughts on this image!

While it is nice to have perpendicular lines when shooting buildings, what excites me about these lenses is how they can magically create otherworldly impressions by how they manage the focal plane. Lightsearcher gets into the game with some of his photos above. I was first introduced to the magic by Anton, who lives in Norway but takes his lenses around the world. His work showed up from time to time on the Manual Focus Nikon Glass thread but I haven't seen any lately. It is always a delight to see folks using these lenses creatively.

A superb thread - Is there any word of any new Nikon Z mount Tilt Shifts?

I recently got a 35/2.8 PC and have used it on my Z6 via the FTZ adapter.

To try and revive this thread here's a creative shot taken with 19mm PC-E.
The old trick of long exposure and zoomi9ng out applied but by shifting on a longer exposure..

Thank you! That was kind of hand held - pushing the camera down on to the floor with one hand, pressing the shutter with the other and winding the shift. These lenses let creativity flow, shame they are so expensive!!

Iíve been wondering myself. Currently using PCE 19mm with FTZ ii on my Z7. Would love to have a 35mm and 90mm Z PCE.

Some lovely shots here. One of the virtues of a shift lens has not, I think, been mentioned yet (if it has, apologies for cursory reading). If you are shooting mirrors, windows, still ponds, or are casting a shadow, a shift lens often allows you to shift yourself out of the picture. At times it can also shift distracting lights out of the way. If you're constrained in where you can position yourself, it can change the relation between foreground objects like posts and pillars, and background. In the right circumstances this can make quite a difference.

I use the old 35/2.8 PC often as a normal lens on a DX camera. The manual focus and preset aperture are easy to get used to, and though the shifting is a good tradeoff by itself, it also happens to make really nice pictures, and just coincidentally I think it's one of the nicest looking lenses ever.

I also have the older 85/2.8 D (same basically as the later E version), which doesn't get much shifting use on DX except for pans, but is a great closeup lens with its tilt and aperture down to F45. It's very hefty, though, not all that easy to use, more suited to a tripod than hand holding.

A shift lens can make a rectangular and nearly rectilinear pan if mounted on a tripod. With three shots, left, center and right, you end up with a high density image, the nominal focal length in height and about half that in width, close enough to rectilinear to pass, and needing little or no cropping.
