    Just my opinion.
    You took the words out of my mouth.

    In this country, the price of eggs has just doubled. Why? Because millions of chickens drowned in their cages during the flood. I think I would prefer to get shot.

    It was in fact a photograph. Tastes vary for sure. I'd rather see that shot than more shots of people's cats. Very gentlemanly of you Tim, as I don't think it was something you needed to do.

    Jan: Very nice series! Particularly like #4 - the motion blur complements wonderfully the almost abstract composition.

    Hermann, Jorgen, Lloyd, Steve - thank you!

    Steen - wouldn't call myself a birder really, but I do enjoy watching and identifying them.

    This is fairly normal "golden hour" light around here... especially so in fall and winter which tend to be hazy.

    Thanks mate. It's a wonder what a little fiddling in LR3 can do...and interesting seeing how different files respond. Cheers

    Thanks, Lloyd. I'm staying dry when not taking photos, but the water where I was standing was nearly as deep as where the cars were driving. No snakes or crocs though

    The Novoflex adtaper came. Hope nobody minds me posting images shot with Nikon glass here? The second shot was by Mark Vercammen at Glazer's Camera.

    Sony Nex-5N; Nikkor 50mm f/1.2 AIS; 1/3200s @ f/1.2; ISO 100

    The All New Fun with Nikon Images


    Nikon glass captures are most wellcome here, Matt, and they are nice both of them

    Actually I think photos made with any kind of equipment and / or brand is wellcome here

    Congrats on your new 5N, please let us know your impressions along the way with the NEX system.

    Matt: Big +1 to that what Steen stated.

    Very nice comeback to the thread (eagerly awaited ) - and I'm looking forward to more of your pictures made with the new equipment. Thanks a lot for sharing!

    (And since I consider purchasing a Nex as well, for me those pictures are interesting in many ways. )

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Back from my cruise around the US (west of Denver, CO) for some time now, I want to share a few impressions of places, seen through the eyes of a European every day tourist - chapter 1:


    "Riding for the US", Main St, Lander, WY


    D 700, 14-24mm/2.8G @ 24mm & f/5.6



    E Grand Ave, Laramie, WY


    D 700, 14-24mm/2.8G @ 14mm & f/5.6



    "Cicerone", Grand Teton NP, WY


    D 700, 24-70mm/2.8G @ 24mm & f/9



    To be continued, maybe ...


    Hope you like it and thank you for your interest.
    Best regards - Hermann

    Steen/Hermann/Steve/Rayyan: Gentlemen, thanks for your kind comments. I am enjoying the 5N. It's ability to use almost any lens with an adapter is pretty cool.

    Hermann: These are great. I think Steve and Rayyan singled out that last one, which is an exceptional composition. It's especially interesting to me, how this photo has the 'purity', light and shadow, and geometrical structure and lines of one of your European architectural photos. Very cool. Excellent pp on all.

    Rayyan: Thanks a lot! You shared your great Maghreb-adventure with us. So now I'm glad I can pay a little bit back!
    But though I'm sorry 'bout that, indeed I'm afraid my eyes/brains are a little bit wide-angled . But there's hope you will excuse that as long as I'm not narrow-minded .

    Matt: I like both of them very much!

    Particularly I really like the perspective impact of your compostion here, the reflections of course and the (somewhat "alienating"?) PP! The 35 AI really seems to be a gem in your hands regarding its colors and rendering (for my taste at least).

    Glad to get an impression that my suggestion on the 35/f1.4 wasn't that bad

    Thanks for sharing!

    Hermann: Thanks! This lens was a good idea. Must be 30 years old +/-. It focus wickedly close. Your architectural photos are distinctively composed. It was actually easy, but unexpected, to see that same compositional technique applied (really well!) here.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Just today those are for Steve, first and foremost. Since I know, that he is an enthusiast for sports/athletics in general and for road cycling in particular, he might like them a little bit.

    Some days ago, when I travelled the Ligurian coast and the mountains in the back-country, I had an espresso in a little bar just a few miles from the village, where Fausto Coppi was born, and I overheard that conversation:


    "Debating the Strategy"


    All with D 700, 35mm/1.4G @ f/1.6



    "First of All, Keep Cool!"





    "He's Our Hope!"





    All the best!

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Hermann/Lloyd/Steve: Thank you, gentlemen!
    Lloyd: The delayed NEX 7 might be the one to wait for. It and some adapters and you can mount every lens you own.
    Hermann: Sweet set of photos and narrative!
    Steve: Senor Frog's, huh! Thankfully, no one asked why we have a praying frog, an ostrich with a Nikkormat FTN, and a wood hand on our mantle
    Steve/Hermann: happy birthday!

    Cheers, Matt

    Lloyd: Thanks a lot for your wishes and for the comments, be it yesterday or today, always much appreciated!


    In order to make amends for yesterday's "birthday OTs" (thank you moderators for the generosity!) a few more pictures from my visit to the US. We're in Montana now, very high skies, old important (and in former, better times prosperous) cities and very nice people (as in the other states we travelled as well) - chapter 2:



    "Downtown Promenade", N 2nd St, Livingston, MT


    D 700, 14-24mm/2.8G @ 18mm & f/5.6



    "Teslow Grain", Livingston, MT


    D 700, 14-24mm/2.8G @ 16mm & f/2.8


    BTW: In hindsight I found out, that this motif is a "quotation" of a picture Lee Friedlander shot for his series "America by Car" in the '90s.


    "Mayoral Race", W Mercury St, Butte, MT


    D 700, 14-24mm/2.8 G @ 17mm & f/6.3


    And no, this one is not a quotation of pictures taken for Wim Wenders' "Don't come knocking", though Butte was the most important location for this movie.


    To be continued, as you like ...


    Thank you for your interest.
    Best regards - Hermann
