    So, Jorgen - thank you for posting your picture of your father, as it reminded me of this one of mine, for me, it's the best picture I have of him in his old age, strong, thoughtful, intelligent and absolutely honest (he was also a fine photographer).
    I remember seeing this fabulous picture of your father. It is a pleasure to revisit it.

    Too lazy to make dinner, so here's another one. I only seem to have one camera and one lens so, D80 and 85mm f/1.8 @ f/2.2.

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Some may be of the opinion that 500mm is a bit long for portraits, and that I should use faster shutter times when hand-holding that lens, but at least, I don't have to add grain

    D80 with Reflex Nikkor 500mm f/8, ISO 1250 and 1/400s

    those are lovely Jorgen
    and think of all the money you've saved on the new b&w plugin!

    Jorgen,

    Thanks, both of you.

    Jono,
    They must have improved a lot on the look of the sky in Britain lately. I can't seem to remember that it was that beautiful when I used to visit

    I was sitting in a restaurant, waiting for the food, and to make the time pass, I took photos of people passing outside. This is one. D80 and 85mm f/1.8

    Lots of crotch rocket riders here. Anybody else ride choppers. This one's not mine but as long as it was in my driveway figured I'd take a pic.

    Wow... very nice bike. Unfortunately, I only ride my 150cc pocket rocket, and even that one is grounded after my last crash

    Still waiting for my dinner. These guys don't have choppers either, but one of them have started preparations

    Jorgen . . . what CAN I say
    that picture is just fabulous - soooo funny.
    Why IS that guy wearing a helmet on his head, and why is the other guy wearing one on his tummy?
    Life is full of mystery and wonder.
    At least, it is in your photos . . . .

    nice pics - and I'm impressed with the 85/1.8, very little if any PF/CA off high contrast areas or the chrome in the scenes.

    Hi Rob
    I do agree, but . . . if you can take pictures like that, then who gives a toss about the lens / quality (well, I don't anyway!).

    I've been loving looking at the photos forum members have submitted since the beginning of this thread.

    Here's a couple of pics I took at Rochester's High Falls during a lunch walk today where it was sunny, then rainy, then sunny again, all within 35 minutes or so. That's the Northeast for you.

    Thanks for the kind words Carlos but I am afraid the color on the 2 photos I sent were a tad off compared to the originals. I am resending them hoping the color is not off this time.

    Of course it's an impressive lens. I paid almost 200 dollars for that thing, plus more than 10 for the rubber shade. It even has autofocus. It sounds like an angle grinder on full speed when it does its thing, but that's to be expected when I deal with cutting edge technology, isn't it?

    A friend of mine has a factory btw. One of those places where they do real work, not this wimpy photography thing. There's real machinery and real sweat all over the place. I spent a couple of hours there today. D80 and 105mm f/2.8 micro, the old version that sounds like my 85mm, wide open most of the time. I love places like that

    Nice shot. Much like people should never confuse education with intelligence, they shouldn't confuse cost of glass with IQ laid down. One does not necessarily mean (and in the case of education, often contra-indicates) the other.

    I agree, the more education people tend to have, the lower their image quality. I have a masters degree, but I think I was better looking when I had only my BA.

    By your reasoning, PhD's can't get a good picture regardless?

    Here is a strictly 'non PhD' image (mind you, it could be better as I do have a first degree in Botany!).


    This was shot with the D3 and the notorious 24-120 at f8 and 29mm
    So it was an over-qualified photographer with an over-qualified camera and an under-qualified lens (didn't stop it pouring down with rain though!).

    Jono,
    You are clearly over-qualified for this. Just considering a PhD...... and then buying a camera... shrug!

    This guy, on the other hand, does not have a PhD, but he does apparently have some talent beyond his profession. D80 and 105mm f/2.8 micro.

    Hi Arne
    I love the first one with the steely cobbles.
    So, on Carlos' basis you must have pretty poor academic qualifications :-)

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Don't know how we linked education and photo-taking ability let alone looks, but what the hell...lets go with free-association.

    Have masters (business) and while I can't say it did anything for my looks (or lack there of) it made for some fun years afterwards. Thought about going for PhD (business 'cough' ethics), but figured I had so little common sense left after my masters, I couldn't risk taping that well any further.

    Very nice shots folks. The 105 micro looks very nice. Have just acquired a clean 55 micro + extender but have yet to play with it.

    Hi everyone,
    Just thought I'd post a few recent shots of mine taken with D300 and Nikor 28/1.4 and Nikkor 24-70/2.8 in mideastern Anatolia. Criticisms most welcome.
    Best,
    Osman

    Hi Jono,
    thank you. Perhaps my academic qualifications have somehow and unbeknownst to me, hampered my photography . It's a good thing I don't do it for a living then

    Thank you, Jorgen. I've been fascinated with well worn doors too. They have a story to tell while embodying a gateway to the unknown at the same time.
