Thanks Corian! Shooting ballet (and stagecraft in general) is always very challenging. Hopefully, the upcoming D700x will match the D700 in low-light performance and I can add that to my repertoire for larger format images as moving to MFD is very cost prohibitive at the moment and may not give me the performance level I need to do this kind of stuff. Landscapes/Urbanscapes on the other hand...
I'm quite happy with the D700 performance for the moment, not in a hurry
Still have to try in-depth some of your CV lenses, though. I planned to, but kinda stick to CZ -great products.
The D700x brings 24.5 mpx to compete with the Canon 5D Mk II. I can use that level of resolution especially with some of the tight crops my customers ask for.
The CV lenses are quite good and have the advantage of being chipped so that all Nikon auto modes work correctly with them. Just set the aperture the highest setting on the barrel of the lens and set the it on the camera body. Works like a champ. I only use my AF zooms for show work, the rest of the time a CV prime is clamped on my D700.
This from this morning on yet another cloudy day. Hand-held with the lensbaby (it was already on the camera and I was lazy). There's a little shake, but what the hell.
Beautiful shot William, of a beautiful woman.
Wear your waders on this bridge!
I guess I elect to have "even" more fun. Dualing threads!
Here's a view from the river of the back side of town. (now that I see it as jpeg, it got a little crunchy. sorry.)
Too little time to take photos these days, so here's an oldie:
S3 with 80-200 f/2.8 AF-S @ 160mm, f/2.8 and ISO 800
Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon. The Bund, Shanghai. Thank you for looking. Leica 77
Great stuff on this page.
Emma - like a siren who just got walking legs and is now minded to confront the world...
Cindy - the print roll looks awesome, keeping a dynamic quality with this choice of focus and DOP... still ready to roll !
Jorgen - hate this picture. Reminds me how long is the road to become a real good portraitist
On the technical side, is it from the time where you still had camera noise @ ISO800 or was it post processed ? Great B&W anyhow.
Fantastic colours L77.
Here's another oldie, from Loy Kratong day 2005, just after I bought the S3 and was still wondering what I was going to use it for
S3 with Tamron 24-135mm f/3.5-5.6 @ 24mm, f/3.5 and ISO1600
Your digital image has captured the ambience of the Asian Night Market and (the important Religious Festivals). Food stands, women, men, steam and smoke coming out of cooking pots, etc. -- the combination of these wonderful elements makes us want to go back there again and again. Best regards, Leica 77
Wow, this thread is off to a good start.
Tim, I enjoyed your river scene. We have a very similar scene in our little town (railroad bridge over the river.)
William, Your muse looks stunning-- running out of the water! The colors and energy are amazing.
Jorgen, Your girls are so charming. Your photos are all inspiring.
Leica77, Beautiful night shot of The Bund...well done.
CorianF- Thanks. Please post some photos here soon.
All - marvellous stuff.
I have had a long hard week - work and so forth. So nothing new to paste up.
This is from Singapore. D2X, 70 - 200mm at 200mm, 1/640, 2.8.
I may manage some Bangkok shots this weekend.

wow the photos on here are of the hook
I'm not sure about this one. Sometimes a bridge support is just a bridge support, right? Right?
Love the Bridge Support

Thank you Helen! (I feel better now)
another from yesterday's river walk.
I really don't have time for photography now, but sometimes I take my camera along. Here's one piс from a recent walk (D3x, DC 135/2):
Very nice, Alex.
Do you know which aperture/offset settings you used on the 135 DC ?
Wonderful Image, AlexLF! Here I post a couple of images recorded at the end of the day. Nikon D300 + AF Nikkor 18-200mm VR Lens. Thanks for looking. Leica 77

Alex: That's a great shot of a sparkling day.
Leica77: Serious sunset! Very dramatic with rich color.
Hello Lloyd and TRSmith,
Many thanks for your positive feedback! At the end of the day, we are grateful that there are friends in cyberspace such as both of you. All the best, Leica 77
