My first shoot with my new Voigtlander APO 125/2.5. Takes some time to get used to the long barrel and the tougher focusing, but its a great lens.

Dragonfly: D70, Voigtlander APO 125mm, 1/125, ISO800, ambient light, on tripod


Grasshopper: D70, Voigtlander APO 125mm, 1/125, ISO800, ambient light, on tripod


Grasshopper: D70, Voigtlander APO 125mm, 1/125, ISO800, ambient light, on tripod
the black dots on the leave are on the leave and not on the sensor


Ant trying to get a grip on a Dorito: D70, Voigtlander APO 125mm, 1/200, ISO200, ambient light, on tripod


Spider: D70, Voigtlander APO 125mm, 1/125, ISO800, ambient light, on tripod

Malayan Water Monitor Lizard: a youngster about 75cm, D70, Nikkor 80-200/2.8 with 1.4x, 1/1600 f3.6, ISO800, ambient light, handheld.
A few years back i got this cheap 1.4x teleconverter and on close inspection of this shot it shows that it seriously degrades the picture quality... should have gotten the Nikon teleconverter.


and some more graphic effects...

D70, Nikkor 80-200/2.8 with 1.4x, 1/250 f3.2, ISO800, ambient light, handheld.


D70, Voigtlander APO 125mm, 1/200, ISO800, ambient light, handheld.
i did not push the colours on this one as much as on the above...

The dragonfly and weaver ant shots are noise.

Overall, I think the ISO is causing some noise in the pics less the ant pic. May want to apply some noise reduction (neatimage....its free) to remove them.

the ISO800 caused a lot of noise, i used LR colour and luminosity noise reduction combined with some sharpening... obviously its not enough. need to look into neatimage, thanks.

Very nice pictures you have here. Except for No. 7. I wonder which is your focus point.Saw an ant below the flower.Is that your subject?

the ant should not be there... got the wrong shot... replaced now... i was more intrgued by the colours of the flower and leaves... so focus the colours and structure of the palm leaves....

tchuanye: neatimage is neat :) . replaced photos in question with ones that were corrected with neatimage
