    I've been a cat person for my entire life and loved them all. Every one of them will be forever in my heart, which is how I can make these images without a sense of guilt.

    Keith, I must say, it’s very beautiful pictures you are showing at your homepage !
    I was about to write that you make them like beautiful painting, when I saw you are actually is a painter.
    So there is often a logical explanation to how your eyes are tuned in, to perceive.
    Beauty of life as a moment of still life grabbed out of time, often walk hand in hand with a certain amount of melancholic mood.
    (And seeing these lifeconditions one can not blame these people wishing to rise a bit in livingstandard…)

    Thorkil,

    I must say that I would love to see what you can do with a 200 2.0 lens on the Z7.

    Please borrow one and show us your magic!

    ha-ha, Dave, thank you for your trust ..but no magic from here
    and by the way, so far there is a long look at the bottom of the purse and what is left there must be left to survive, I am afraid
    And treacherous thoughts here from might be, that, ain't the bokeh from the 200/2 almost too strong ???, well one could stop down, but then perhaps a f2.8 or 4 could do it too???, or why don't you perhaps consider a 300 PF, that's a handy and super splendid lens I would think...

    Not a night or astro photographer myself, so ... what were the settings resulting in this brillant image? Is it a composite?

    Yes, its a splendid pictures! I just wish that it was a bit bigger while it ought to fill almost the entire screen (which at my stationary is 32"), so if it was about 1500-1600 px wide one could see a lot more details

    JD,

    I have been distracted with other issues lately. I don't want to miss the opportunity to tell you, and others, that the amount of time, work and energy you have invested in the photo above is very much appreciated. From my own experience, I know. And I also love the results, hoping you have many more from the same shoot and other times that you have ventured out in the dark of night.

    Well done!
    Dave (GT)

    Re: Fun with Nikon Z

    I really appreciate the sentiments expressed here as it confirms the generosity of so many at GetDpi. Inspiration can come from a few kind words with the ability to compel and motivate our passion. I've been very inspired by the many talented photographers here and have also learned a few tricks too.

    I was visiting family on a beautiful island in the Bay of Fundy and this lighthouse greets all who enter the harbor by ferry. It's incredibly peaceful at night, albeit a little scary too, with high wind, a few seals and shorebirds all vying for their space on the rocks. The cliffs rise approximately 150 - 200 feet from the sea. The craggy paths that wind the point don't instill confidence at night, but with careful planning can be an adventure. I was told by my wife as I set out to the lighthouse, "don't do anything stupid". I should hang that as my mantra in my studio, but I did in fact, heed her advice when trying to scale the cliffs farther below for a better vantage point. I do have some basic rock climbing gear that I might pack in my bag for those occasions when needed. One descent looked too sketchy and with high tide on the rise, my wife's advice was sensible. It also made me realize that a 24mm or 35mm lens might have been the safer way to get this image. I will post a few more, but have to watch for star trails and high ISO.

    Thanks to All!

    Thank you for the comment.
    It is not a composite. Although, I appreciate the art of some composite photography, imo, it doesn't hold as much magic as a natural photograph,(if that's even possible with digital). I once viewed an incredible image of a moon rising with ducks flitting across a misty pond. I was awestruck at the composition until the photographer mentioned that all the elements were photographed separately at different times. For this pic it was choosing between one or two elements that probably won't look ideal, so it's either: lower iso and longer exposure=star trails and shorter exposure, higher iso=camera noise. Pixel shift cameras would mitigate the star trails, but doesn't work so good with subjects in the image.

    A couple of photos taken this week of the Ffestiniog Railway's latest Pullman Observation Car, built in the railway's own Carriage Works at Boston Lodge. It went into service on 4 October at the start of the annual Victorian Vintage Gala. Z6, 24-70 f4S. The interior shot was at 24mm, 1/15sec and f16, hand held.

    Re: Fun with Nikon Z

    I went to Switzerland for a couple of weeks in late September and was lucky enough, on a visit to the preserved Dampfbahn-Furka-Bergstreck to see their newly-restored 0-8-0 4-cylinder, compound rack tank under test at Furka halt, the highest part of the line. This loco was recovered as a rusty wreck from a closed line in the Vietnamese jungle about 20 years ago and has taken around 10 years to restore. The result is magnificent. Z6, 24-70 f4 @32mm, 1/500, f8, ISO 250.

    Re: Fun with Nikon Z

    Finally got to try the Nikon Z 85mm 1.8S, but only for fun. We'll be using it for a job soon, but from the shots I took, It's really good in resolution with decent bokeh and falloff. Some have compared it to the Otus with as good resolution. I must decide between the 105mm 1.4 or the half priced Z 85mm 1.8s. I'm not too sure the differences are that great with resolution going to the Z 85mm. Less expensive, plus weather resistance is a plus too.
    Here's a few with the Z 50mm 1.8s and 105mm 1.4. I think I uploaded the 105mm before, but it does make for a good comparison in focal length. Both are stellar lenses.

    JD Beautiful!
    Perhaps JD, the 105/1.4 seems to draw a tiny bit more delicate? Where the 85/1.8S seems almost perfect, but perhaps also a tiny bit more anonymous ?
    But on the other hand, perhaps in every day practice, you would find the native lens handier and more satisfying to handle (???), and without adapter (and bonus in weight and price)(???)

    Excellent points. I agree that the 105mm is more "delicate" and it draws more "character". The size of the 105mm doesn't bother me and actually helps in hand holding. The Z 85mm 1.8S is absolutely razor sharp even wide open. It's remarkable at how good it is, but I keep thinking the 105mm 1.4 just exudes more character. Using the FTZ with the 105mm is another engineering marvel and works as good as a native lens.

    So if money isn't an issue, or lets say, it won't prevent you to get proper healthy food on the table and all the other necessities, perhaps go for the 105 (just promise us all to post a lot Z+105/1.4 then, so we all can enjoy the drawing)
    At first when seeing pictures from the 85/1.8S around, my first thought was that they were somehow a tiny bit "sexless".
    Yes the FTZ is splendid. I'm just having a bit trouble concerning sharpness with the 70-200/4 at infinity. Perhaps it's somehow an adjustment issue, but I haven't investigated further in it though.

    Yes, try the lens adjustment in the Z menu. Or try zooming through viewfinder and set infinity in manual mode to see if it achieves infinity focus. Perhaps, a de centered element.

    At first when seeing pictures from the 85/1.8S around, my first thought was that they were somehow a tiny bit "sexless".
    Yes the FTZ is splendid. I'm just having a bit trouble concerning sharpness with the 70-200/4 at infinity. Perhaps it's somehow an adjustment issue, but I haven't investigated further in it though.
    Same problem here. Try +2 for a starter. Funny, my Z7 rental (try before you buy) w/FTZ and 70-200 F4 was perfect. And once purchased, same problem as Thorkil. Sorta pissed me off.

    when I've got some patience, I'll give it a try, John, but if one should risk that it focus ok at infinity, but getting worse at normal working distance, like shooting deer, one can perhaps give it two different adjustment-versions to choose between in the field

    That's disconcerting - there are several online reports of issues with Z6/Z7 with the 70-200mm f4.0.

    Pity - as this is one of my favourite landscape lenses.

    Hope Nikon gets this sorted out.

Using the FTZ with the 105mm is another engineering marvel and works as good as a native lens.
    JD, I just got a thought, how about trying out the Zeiss Milvus 100/2 ZF2 Makro, which perhaps have one of the most beautiful rendering at all, for portraits, makro etc. (in fact all around)?
    Or is manual focusing thumbs down for you? (even though it seems so easy on the Z7, though the magnifier-button is placed awkward for the thumb, so one has to look down for the first many times - but still...its almost super easy to focus when enlarged I think)
    PS I forgot an important thing, in manual focus, one push at the AF-ON and you enlarge as standard 200% (one more push and you are back), and that button is just right there in front of your thumb. I have just altered it to only 100% which is more stable-viewing (in meny, the pencil-meny, then f, and then f2),
    it really can't be more easy...

    How do you do this, when you want to keep AFON in its original function when AF is selected? Presently I have assigned the loupe function to the video button, as this is not for me ...

    I guess it's while I don't use the AF-ON button as intended, and therefore previous not at all , I just use the trigger half pressed for AF. So for me the AF-ON is placed very comfortable under my thumb, to do the loupe-enlargement instead.
