    Ok, I admit it. I keep going back to see this one. Hmm... I can't figure out why.

    By the way, Steve. That Chikara tat on your left deltoid is a favorite of mine. It was the logo, and name, of our martial arts dojo for many years.

    +1. I really like that b/w processing. The color also has a lot of subtlety. Nice work.

    Carlos, very nice night shot with that Zeiss glass!

    Steve, unbelievably stunning b+w shots. Very keen and artful results. Wow!

    Steve, this is an unbelievable shot.
    Spectacular, intriguing, fascinating, superbly executed. Difficult to put words on... as it goes with the truly exsceptional photos.
    This is definitely one your best (and this means a lot).

    The whole series' great btw. The portrait (#4) testifies a great deal about the lens performance , along with an interesting background composition and bokeh.

    Won't comment the self portrait... well, Lloyd said it all.
    IMHO, a very cool, dynamic complement to the -previously posted- still one from the furniture shop series.

    Really: great work.

    Tim, like all four of them but this one's special. Obviously you had good light, but i'm wondering what kind of processing is involved here.
    Beautiful colors, and result.



    Carlos: fine downtown Miami night shot. Not the usual angle (maybe because it's not Miami after all ), good use of the Zeiss wide!



    Matt: another winner in your market series collection. i'll opt for the B&W, too

    Overlooked the Westin shot the first time over. I know it's a theme close to your heart, and it's great too. Elegant and sad altogether.

    Large groups of birds lately. Not today, at dusk after the storm, barn roof was -almost- empty.


    "Lone pigeon"




    (no processing, no sharpen, no B&W conversion - just RAW +1/3EV, a tad of level)

    Really nice shot, Jorgen. I like the angle of the shot very much. And, as Corlan said, very interesting ears.

    For some reason im reminded of Hitchcock's The Birds Classic! This also has a menacing, Charleton Heston "Omega Man" Spooky, last man on the planet waiting to be devoured by the evil Crow feel to it! Very Cool Mood Shot Corlan! Im Creeped Out as you can tell!

    Wicked nice shot. He wasn't real sure what to make of you, and if he did have the tablets, I'll bet he forgot where he put 'em. Of course who knows, He could be the head of the Astrophysics dept. at Harvard.

    Jorgen: Great 'cow character' coming through. Looks like it wants to be your friend. I was trying to find out what breed of cow that was and came across this: http://www.efeedlink.com/contents/06...beab5827d.html Apparently dairy farming came to Thailand after the King and Queen visited Denmark.

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    Thanks Osman, Lloyd, Steve, Matt, for the kind comments.
    It was a bit gloomy here tonite, but in a good way. Light was dim but very "shaped" (i'm tired and for lack of a better word). Was worth giving it, er... a shot.

    Steve, though i had a more poetic intent, Omega Man is definitely in good position in the sci-fi section of the movie collection. So is its companion Soylent Green, for when you're into something really depressing (<- smiling tablet )

    7 feet tall and he was clearly looking slightly up to you. Not sure what to make of that...

    The last three shots are excellent, after some consideration my vote goes for this one, for creativity ("mechanical wicked smile" is fun) and processing.

    Then the street shot is not only good, but shows the variety of angles you 're able to get from this lens with great effect. Sounds like you have a lot of fun with it (and will for some time)

    Matt, i'll definitely opt for this punchy partly desaturated version, which would fit well in many magazines.
    Maybe would crop it a tad more to get rid of a couple of distractions (or a bit less if you did already).. but hey it's me, and you know how fussy i am with the darn crops

    Btw Matt you gave me a false hope with the zoom rogue classified. When starting reading your phrase i thought about something else (you know, PCEish)

    Matt, i'll definitely opt for this punchy partly desaturated version, which would fit well in many magazines.
    Maybe would crop it a tad more to get rid of a couple of distractions (or a bit less if you did already).. but hey it's me, and you know how fussy i am with the darn crops

    Btw Matt you gave me a false hope with the zoom rogue classified. When starting reading your phrase i thought about something else (you know, PCEish) ...
    .
    Corlan: Thanks for the comments. That lens has a very distinctive character. I no longer have it because it wasn't one i used, or thought i could use with success. Sorry about the PC-E..

    Cheers, Matt

    7 feet tall and he was clearly looking slightly up to you. Not sure what to make of that...





    The last three shots are excellent, after some consideration my vote goes for this one, for creativity ("mechanical wicked smile" is fun) and processing.

    Then the street shot is not only good, but shows the variety of angles you 're able to get from this lens with great effect. Sounds like you have a lot of fun with it (and will for some time)

    Corlan...I should have said Edgar Allan Poe, but i was in a cheesy sci-fi kind of spirit! Soylent Green was also another Freaky Movie!
    "Mechanical Wicked Smile" is Awesome & i hope you dont mind if i use that as a title! Oh as far as "Moses" height , i was on a bench making like i was shooting the most exotic squirrel in the world, but he ultimately caught me & almost turned me into Pulp with his stare! Thank You!

    Certainly not an easy purpose lens with its somehow fisheye character -examples above are very though

    So much for the stealth part And i know the feeling

    As for the smile, it's definitely wicked, and mechanical, isn't it?

    Love these two, Matt.
    Last one is awesome


    note: as far as processing is concerned (since you mention it), on #1 did you try a slightly brighter upper right hand sky?

    Corlan: Thanks! I'll try that. It'd probably make the silhouette stronger.
