    This last page has some really great images, folks! That Chevy pick up reminds of my childhood. A local farmer had one - two-tone! dark green and black. Unusual here; being Norway. I can still hear the engineŽs rumble (or is it my head? )

    I just got a Nikkor 1,4/85 ais for the D200. The other night we (the broadcasting I work for) arranged a tribute to the poetry hero of my youth (70 yrs birthday). He can still read!

    Beautiful portrait, Leif. Congrats on the new lens. I love my 85/1,4, you'll no doubt love yours as well.

    Very nice portrait leif.

    And thanks to everyone for the comments on my dying Hosta and dead froggie pair. Don't feel too bad about Sir Frog, he had a good life in his own private pond with lots of young froggettes to romance.

    I found it interesting that the two shots (the frost-bitten Hosta leaf and the underside of the frog) shared a similar pattern of lights and darks. Both shots within 25 yards of each other.

    I probably could have asked this better. That interior photo appeared to need a small aperture, something on the order of F11-16 I would guess, unless of course you focus stacked. Assuming that is correct I just wanted to know how well the sensor held up to such a diffraction inducing aperture. When I owned the D2x F11 was really pushing the envelop with noticeable softening of detail. I was curious if the D3x falls into the same situation.

I also so make some color correction just to make the photo "sing" (well, I'm still learning). In general, I don't see any problem doing PP - people tend to remember more vivid picture of anything anyway, and we capture that moment (as photographers). So the result should be more vivid that it originally was.
    Let me clarify a bit. I certainly did not mean for my question to be disparaging remark about your workflow and in fact like you also do a lot of post production work on my files as well. I see little to any difference in the philosophy of manipulating photographs in the wet dark room compared to the digital darkroom. Its all good, I was just curious as to what this new camera was doing on its own accord.

    Quote Originally Posted by AlexLF View Post

    As to the color rendition of the D3x - never had problems with it even if I take pics in JPEG. But D3x requires way less PP compared with what I do with my scans from LF film
    I could easily believe this having worked for years with large format trannies, scanning etc.

    Thanks, LLoyd.
    Zeiss did it! Or is it the 105 ?

    Very sensible portrait, Leif. Good job!

    Matt- you should have asked the actors to stay on set for this shot (see PM)

    Thanks all! IŽm really looking forward to using the 85 more - after the KatzEye screen, itŽll be easier to focus as well.

    Rob! You have my sympathy! We had a beautiful autumn - after a lousy summer, but it passed so quickly! Gone, all the lovely leaves and colours.

    Lately this is more what we expect ...

    Great portrait of Jan Erik Vold, Erik. Are you working for NRK? My father worked there for most of his adult life.

    Nice sunbeams, Matt.

    What a beauty. Grand daughters are something special. We had all boys, so now the first girl is something special. Here's one of her from today. (OT, as I used the M8, sorry):

    This thread allows me to at least keep my hand in. Thanks for your patience with all these little apple shots, etc. I've been too busy to wander very far. Nevertheless, here's a small taste of the season.

    ********
    It was shot using a Manfrotto Pano head but that wasn't necessary. There seems to have been a considerable improvement in software for stitching and color matching since I last tried panos, a few years ago. Here is one shot in the same location using a ballhead, rotated for four shots. [Non Nikon :>( ]

    For some reason or other team of weather bosses decided to grant us another grand day (or more??). At the same time making it obvious that a few hardhead leaves keep hanging on - color and all.
