    Re: Fun with Nikon Images

    I'm so sick of winter....... This time last year we had weather in the 70's and higher. This year I still have wet, mucky snow on the ground.
    Here's a couple from late last fall, before it turned cold. 60mm nikkor micro, a lens I really like on my d800. Blue leaf @iso 1250/f16. Tiny flowers @iso 100/f2.8.

    I was at the Grand Canyon last week for the first time in many years. I had forgotten how hard the place is to photograph, here are a few I'm working on.

    It could be worse Matt....at least you don't live in Alaska. 70+ degrees in March? For the past couple of "summers" I could count on one hand the number of days when we hit 70 degrees here. It was zero to ten degrees here last week, then we got another 12-15 inches of snow. Still looks like winter here, but at least there are more hours of daylight. I know that eventually, spring will arrive....but it never comes soon enough for me.

    Farmers Market shot with D800e and Nikkor 18-35 G at 18mm. Processed this one in LR4.4rc and applied lens profile for the old 18-35. Overcorrects slightly for vignetting, but otherwise OK.

    We finally had some sun today that felt good. Still evaluating the 18-35 G on the D800e. Seeing more distortion in today's shots, but was able to recover some decent images. OK for casual shooting, but I'm not that pleased with it for landscape use.

    Dudes (and Dudettes)! Wow. Inspiration here in this thread.

    It's been a quiet few months for me as far as photography goes. But as Spring starts to appear, I'm trying to rev up by processing some old stuff laying around that went overlooked.

    Peace to you!

    Three shots with the D800e+85 f/1.8G taken today on a rainy walk around Houston pond at Cornell's Newman Arboretum. Still no spring flush - just same old dull winter colors.

    Hi, I'm still seriously considering the Zeiss 15mm on a D800E. My concerns are the corner and edge performance, though I do wonder if the occasional criticism I hear could be due to people not taking into account just how wide this lens is and not stopping down far enough to allow for sufficient DOF.

    Any feedback you can give me would be welcomed.

    It's excellent with no focus shift and handle's sun flare very well,C.A's are minimal and same for distortion,live view is very helpful for critical focus..

    it's almost 250 grams lighter than the nikkor 14-24.. I will post a few files for you..

    Many thanks indeed for making these files available, it really is appreciated.

    The control of flare on the Zeiss is quite remarkable. Central definition likewise. The profile in ACR is also very good.

    I'm still unsure about edge and corner definition but admit that perhaps I'm being too critical especially considering just how wide this lens is. For me this is probably the issue, the lens is simply too wide which not only impacts on edge performance but also on the rendering of perspective. Perhaps, for me at least, it's just too extreme.

    BTW, I thought your processed image was very fine, you certainly got the most out of the file.

    Thanks once again. All the best and good shooting to you.

    Buttermilk Falls. D800e+Nikkor 18-35 G+Tiffen Digital 1.2 ND filter. Harsh lighting, but the D800e handled it surprisingly well.

    Thanks Keith,it's a great file to work with .very malleable ..

    It is for sure a very wide len's but addictive when you get a feel for it..
    It's a far bit wider than the HCD-24..

    I also have the Nikkor,the Zeiss is not as versatile as the Nikkor but for absolute image quality I think the Zeiss is better..

    Best

    Wimpole Hall from today, the first shot is a combination of two images taken with the D800E and Sigma 35mm F1.4, focus stacked.



    With the 24mm PC-E shifted upwards



    and book restoration, with the Sigma 35mm F/1.4

    From a hike this weekend - D800E + 24-70mm f2.8

    Big dynamic range in this photo - but the D800E handled it quite well - though I suspect someone with better pp skills could do better.



    Thanks for looking.

    Quentin, LOVE the book restoration shot -- dare I go so far to say it has a "Leica-like" quality to it?

    Thanks, Jack, but if you mean one of the Merrills, these shots are with the D800E . It would have been a tad rude to post Sigma Merrill shots in a Nikon forum

    Could probably have used the Sigma DP2M for the restoration shot but its not great in low light (although I used the Merrills in low light in Morocco and they did pretty well)

    Bluebird day! Zeiss 21mm... The lighting and perspective are tricky, there's a cliff just about 25 feet to the left.

    I am referring to the D800E/Sigma 35 shot directly above. "Little" was intended as a sappy adjective

    The Trilliums are finally out in the forests where I live so I went out today in the rain and had some fun!

    Came across this Crab Spider on one of the Trillium leaves, this was just a quick 'grab-shot' so the quality isn't what I would have preferred...

    It's still winter here. One of my favorite things about the month of April is that it signals the end of the cold days and snowy forecasts but this year there is no sign of spring So I thought lets post a summer shot from last year

    A vernal waterfall on Sixmile Creek along a walking trail not far from my home. Two shot stitch, handheld with D800e and Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG. Harsh lighting.
