Another infrared with the 24mm f2.8 ais. This is an 8 image stitch of the flooded forest floor. The river is running paralell to the railing on the left side of the image, and has gone under the walkway into the forest.

Really love the way you processed and shot this Jim. Lovely texture on the ice, moody look, and perfect flare.

Have been so busy that I miss reading your posts, but plan to change that as your photos are the true fun in this thread, with the lens conversations a close second for me.

Here are my three versions of the Nikkor 15mm Manual focus lenses.

Total investment $1800 over 20 years.

Congrats on the newest 15 Rafael, looks like a beauty like the other two.

Hmmm. It sounds like this consolidation might be going in the favourite direction for this thread's members---in short, sell to buy; or, downsize to upsize; or, take a step back before leaping forward!

How about a few antique windows to continue the flow. These are from Fort William in 2017 via the Fuji X-E2 and anonymous MFNG.


That distorted look through the glass is just incredible. I guess they really used windows for light back then vs for a view outside.

It is not a NOCT, but it handles light at 1.4 so well!

Making a strong argument for the millenium.

Thanks for your kind comments, gentlemen!

Ray, my father was quite the antique collector. He even (with the help of my two brothers and me) found, tore down, relocated, and reconstructed several log farm houses, as well as a frame house from the early 19th century. In those days (the 1970's and 80's), what he called "seeded" glass panes (due to the oblong air bubbles in the glass) had to be salvaged from as yet unbroken antique windows, or from dealers who had salvaged such glass. Nowadays, there are craftspeople who use the old processes to make true replica panes. They make their business viable by providing stock for historic sites like Fort William.

So, how about some more fast water photos from Northern Ontario in 2017. Like the other images from our cross-Canada trip, these monochromes were shot with the Fuji X-E2 and anonymous MFNG.

Funny story, there was a big olí shrimp boat anchored right off the waterfront this morning. And of course Iíd pulled my Z6II out of my truck and I never grab my bag with A7SII in it first thing, so I had no camera this morningÖ so I definitely need a spare to live in my truck!

This house needs a haircut!

I don't know what kind of vines were growing out of this dilapidated house, but they were definitely out of control.

I shot these in 1994 on Fuji Velvia. Camera was either a Nikon FM or a F3HP - lens was the Nikkor 35-105mm ais. The point of land is Paradisa Point, and in the summer the sun and moon rise from behind this Peninsula of land. I know these three shots were taken within a short period of time - a few days - same day?. Sunrise over Paradisa, Sunset at Northport bay, and Moonrise at Paradisa. They are all in one bay (1 & 3 looking left, #2 looking right)

















Speaking of film:
Squeezed off about 6-8 frames this afternoon with some 20 year old expired Tri-X bulk loaded film. (to practice & get the rust out) I noticed two things. Every time I take a picture I look at the little metal square on the back of the Nikon FM body (that you are suppose to put the film box top in to remind you what film you are using) expecting there to be a screen. Yeah, gotta be patient - I haven't even got all the chemistry, nor plumbed the wet sink drain leak. The other thing I noticed is that a split image focusing screen is a wonderful thing. I sure missed that, and the small purring sound of brass gears on the film advance lever.

Kevin, send you a PM with Nippi's tracking number, she should be there Tuesday.

This is not her but her LTM sister.

Back to the 15mm QD.C 5.6.

She is extremely sharp, but with curvature of field, near edges and corners stay sharp, far ones not so much, she is better for landscape with near foreground or interiors, the 15mm 3.5 has flatter field, but not sure how much flatter, will test. All these Superwide Nikkors have field curvature to varying degrees.

California is looking pretty with all the rain, so green, I have been clearing the land and making it like a county park to hike and sit under a tree to read a book, but ended up with too much brush to get rid off.

Mountains of brush, check them at 100% in Flckr, super sharp central area and closer edges.

But, the solution is here - bought a new Mechmaxx P4206 15HP drum chipper and it works great!
Below is the end result after chipping brush, chipper under palms and tarp. Still have a lot of chipping to do, but now clean land is just a matter of time.

Lens looks good and good luck with the land. I have a few acres I have been trying to get cleaned up, it can be a bear of a job.

Rafael,
What a lush bit of land you have! It is way more verdant than I experienced in my various travels around California. That looks like a ton of work, and since you own a great chipper - I think you should take many many breaks - have a bit of tea, coffee, or your favorite beverage with a snack at each break. What's the hurry?
Jim
