    One that I love to use on digital full frame the 85/1.8 K Ai'd. I like it a lot because it is very easy to manual focus even wide open. I should have shot this tight one here with the 105 but I was to lazy to run inside to get it. Did make a couple film trials with 100 E mounted on film camera too.

    I live out in the country bro. We burn a lot of stuff out here like trash, limbs and brush, flotsam and jetsam. Use diesel fuel to get them started. The past couple of months our area has been under a red flag fire warning because of drought conditions. It rained pretty heavily the day before the snap was made so a bunch of folks caught up on some burning. Although it appears to be a house fire or something it was nothing more than someone burning stuff. They must have had a lot of crap though because that is quite a cloud. It dissipated pretty rapidly though.

    If you get caught burning during a red flag period you are fined stiffly. The county had a pyromaniac a few years ago who started a fire that destroyed several homes. Luckily no one died. The idiot was seen stopping his truck on a rural road and lighting a rolled newspaper on fire then he tossed it into a ditch overgrown with brush. They caught him and now he is serving a prison sentence of several years.

    Back in the old days this sort of thing went on even in the city. Due to lack of trash service so many folks had incinerators on their property or in some cases even in their homes.

    If you look at some of my nature photos the past couple of pages in this thread you can see how dried out everything is. Normally we have several snow storms but last winter it only snowed once and very lightly at that. It is the El Nino effect. When we are dry California gets atmospheric rivers. When Cali is dry the midwest USA is wet. Our summers here are quite humid. I think I could handle Singapore's climate because of our humid summers. Plus Ive been to the jungle before...it was no sweat for me (haha) but I'm pretty healthy and strong.

    All of that said if my pasture catches on fire right now I'm in deep caca.

    Your welcome bro. Anytime.

    A little informal comparison of a Nikon 50/1.8 Series E and a Nikkor 50/1.8 Ais Short Barrel. I am just scratching the surface of comparing the two but I think the only difference will turn out to be more coatings on the Nikkor and plastic vs metal. I'll have to look into it a little deeper sometime. E on the left Nikkor on the right. The E is looked down upon by many and the Ai and Ais versions are spoken highly of...imagine that. I'll be keeping my E stuff thank you very much! In fact I want some more!

    I should test this with candle light on a tripod...wonder if the E could edge the Nikkor in the dark???

    Fast fifties stopped down to f8 shutter 30 ISO 3200 handheld. Informal is the key word here.

    35/2 Highly processed. I'm experimenting with trying to get film looks out of the Df.

    My friend's race car. You bros are not going to believe this but this car is completely and fully legal to drive on the streets of Oklahoma. And it so fast it has two parachutes and wheelie bars!

    Thanks Angy I appreciate your supportive comment and especially so coming from such a long time member. Thank you!

    Some more from the 35/2. I have decided I like my film effect because it has good clean grain however I am getting to many artifacts in the deep blacks. Today I went tripod and in camera hdr processed. I am thinking about doing three in camera hdr snaps at different exposure levels and then processing them with hdr just to see what kind of muddy mess will result...hehe






    Blasted beavers killed my target tree that I have been shooting since it was very small. I think I will have me some beaver fur maybe this year.

    The 105/2.5 is probably my favorite Nikkor. Another lens that is a dream to shoot on full frame digital. Super easy to focus. Amazingly bitingly sharp if called for and pleasantly smooth out of focus areas.

    Here is one from the humble 28/3.5 K. Not bad for $30 or $40 I forgot what I paid but it was dirty cheap. It is my go to daylight and into the sun landscape and architecture shooter. This is the city of Tulsa downtown district viewed from the south looking NE. I will write a little about some of the buildings later tonight. On the right side of the snap the round tower and all of the buildings thereabouts are condos and apartments. That is the Arkansas River (running way high because of April showers...nasty looking thing huh? You should smell it sometimes) and I am standing on the 21st Street Bridge aka Vietnam Veterans Memorial Bridge...named a gazillion years after the fact in an act of trying to save face. Dark chapter in American history I must say. Those tiny specs in the sky about mid frame are bald eagles.



    Df with 50/2 S
