    Impressive detail, texture and color, Rayyan.

    And no, you don't want to keep Corlan waiting.

    I want to photograph her in all the three places I have shown you.

    Can you do that for me, my friend. I asked Ari.

    Impossible, Mr. Rayyan. It seems you want a girl to marry, not to photograph! That would be a different proposition. I have to consult my elders!!

    In that case Ari, I said, I have to get rid of my Charlie Sheen outfit ( not in style now I hear ), and put my pants on.

    I shall have to do the job myself. You, my friend, take the next two days off.

    And pass me my hypertension medication. Two capsules please. I might need
    a stronger dose!!

    Don't have much time. My friend Corlan is getting impatient.
    This Entire Segment Needs To Be Framed & Put In The DPI Hall Of Fame!!!

    Oh yes..my dear friend Corlan. Of course..a thousand pardons! Talking about
    blue pills, it was fortunate I put on my pants!! I take a lot of medication from
    Pfizer..Plavix, Prozac and what do you call them blue pills?!! Very fortunate I tell you. Almost overstayed my Selamet Datung ..

    Steve, thank you.

    You guys are too much!!

    #2 is uniques, but different. I don't know how it prints.

    #3; same horse? ( I counted the flies!! . what a beautiful portrait. The whites on the neck and mane...wow!

    Lovely work.
    Many thanks Rayyan.
    (not my father, who's unfortunately no longer with us)

    The first one prints nicely at any size (no crop here), and you're right #2 was a question mark but prints ok looking a bit like an old slightly overexposed photo -as it was intended for.

    Talking about unusual gems in the 50-60mm category, and tiny, got myself a new favorite body cap.

    Rummaging around in Jorgen's analog bag while he was testing E-6 K-8 and al, i found a real underestimated gem. Dirt cheap, too.

    Here it is, courtesy of a much bigger sibling (C645 120mm - so, not a "Nikon shot"... or is it? ).




    Couple of samples on the Nikon body...
    It's great for portraits, with an analog like smoothness. Can't show a lot here unfortunately (can send few more samples upon request by email tho). First is same subject than on previous page, different occasion. Mixed lighting practically no PP, about 30% of the original framing:






    Not a landscape beast, but still usable with beautiful colors:








    Not the ultra-sharp product studio sessions companion either, but quite usable once stopped down for (reasonnably large) web stuff. Here's a small technical sample (piano lacquer, a pain to shoot... larger sample available on request).




    Minimum focus distance is a bit long, it's MF, can't do it all but... nice body cap.

    That's all for "Lens report of the day" folks

    Corlan, I pray your honorable father rests in peace. My apologies for inadvertently being a fool.

    As to ' lens report of the day ', I like how it draws. Soft, creamy, dreamlike.
    MF doesn't bother me, weight does! As you correctly pointed out Landscapes might not be its forte.

    Thanks for the info. Love the portrait and the backlit.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Bali is undoubtedly a paradise on earth.

    I arrived in Bali with the intention of staying 5 days. They became 7, then 10, then 14 and finally 19 days.

    One can visit a place as a tourist and depart as a tourist.

    Or one can go as a guest and leave as a visitor.

    Or else, on can visit a place as a stranger and leave as a friend.

    Whichever way one chooses to come and leave, the Balinese say the words ' Selamat Datang '..Welcome.

    The decision how you visit and depart Bali is yours to make. You will always be welcomed.

    Corlan, my friend, there is a door in Bali. An old door. Legend has it that it is a door to a person's heart. It is said one needs to be truthful. Genuine. If their wish is to be fulfilled.

    The door is kept locked. One unlocks it and enters. The locks are old. One lock is broken.

    I opened this door and went in. Fools rush in...that's me.


    Thank you for having shared this journey with me.

    Selamat Tinggal.

    Nice lens cap, Corlan. Simple does it sometimes, and in this case, the results look pleasant. Did you do the conversion yourself?

    Rayyan the last episode is truly wonderful, in both the narrative and visual sense.

    The quality of the portrait simply leaves me speechless.

    Oh, yes. I want a print.

    Nope i had the fortune to find one already converted.

    Btw you might be able to confirm, but on the Contax SLR bodies my understanding is that this 1.7 kit lens was considered good but not quite as the 1.4.

    On the D3X (supposedly quite selective in terms of lens), i returned the 1.4 and kept the basic one. I'm really pleased and impressed with the results, especially for portraiture.

    Processing requires a tad more sharpening, well more "degauss" really than "sharpening" in the common (/current) sense. Which is perfectly OK with me, since it somehow gives the feeling of working on high quality scans. And i like that, there's a lot of potential from the files.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Corlan,
    I'm a bit confused with regards to the quality differences between the two. I haven't tried the f/1.7, but some owners give the impression that the slower lens is of more or less equal optical quality to the f/1.4. I use it mainly with film, since my favourite 50mm for digital is the insanely sharp OM Zuiko 50mm f/2.0 macro.

    There's another Zeiss lens pair where the slower lens actually equals the faster: the 85mm f/1.4 and f/2.8. The f/2.8 is so good that I consider buying on for a lightweight travel kit. The 85mm f/1.4 is compact enough, but rather heavy.

    Europe is sleeping now, but it's a converted lens. Conversion sets can be bought at http://leitax.com/

    Woody, as Jorgen said unlike what's possible with the EOS mount, here it's not an adapter per se since the bayonet has to be converted (reversible). Leitax sells kits, you can also find vendors in Asia, or already converted lenses on the second hand market, but rarely.

    I knew about Leitax but their fame was based on converting R lenses. I did not know they were doing Contax lenses as well.

    Steve, both are very, very good.
    Your museum series (along with the Art place... BMA??) are excellent all the way with strong stylistic features.

    On this last post, in addition to the -truly- awesome capture, technically wise i'm also impressed about the perspective in the second photo. Did you have to crop a lot of the original material due to the important PC in post?

    Corlan, Thank You & Yes, Boston Museum Of Fine Arts!
    I cropped about 25 % of the original in the 2nd pic. JFK Library is quite an interesting place to shoot.Thanks again C!

    And now for something completely different I'll add this palette of wisps I found above my garden taken with a D700+50mm f/1.4 Manual Nikkor [email protected]/8 ISO 200::

    Or one can go as a guest and leave as a visitor.

    Or else, on can visit a place as a stranger and leave as a friend.

    Whichever way one chooses to come and leave, the Balinese say the words ' Selamat Datang '..Welcome.

    The decision how you visit and depart Bali is yours to make. You will always be welcomed.

    Corlan, my friend, there is a door in Bali. An old door. Legend has it that it is a door to a person's heart. It is said one needs to be truthful. Genuine. If their wish is to be fulfilled.

    The door is kept locked. One unlocks it and enters. The locks are old. One lock is broken.

    I opened this door and went in. Fools rush in...that's me.


    Thank you for having shared this journey with me.

    Selamat Tinggal.

    man work of art....^^^^^

    Hermann. I suffer from vertigo. I sleep on the gf!! In planes I sit in an aisle seat. I have not climbed the leaning towers of ' anywhere '.

    However, on the ground, I see and appreciate your capture. Don't know much about converging verticals.

    But I know what appeals to me. Your capture does.
    The lamp post shadow adds a haunting atmosphere to the scene.

    Excellent

    Rayyan: Don't mind. I suffer from vertigo as well, extremely !

    But looking up from the bottom, that's ok ...

    Thanks a lot for your kind words and enjoy the planning of your next trip!
