Taken with a cheap, 26 year old MF lens. The colour rendition and contrast created by this old Tokina is very different from what I am used to, but I like it for subjects.
That actually looks really cool, PB PM! What focal length is it?
where there’s smoke there’s forum fire
The lens is the often belittled RMC Tokina 28mm F2.8.
D90, 70-200, Canon 500D Closeup, 1.7x Tele, Iso 200, F18, 1/30, 340mm

Sunrise hike on Shovel point
AF Nikkor 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G VR
Stunning photos as always :)
Here's my contribution:
Treckie nice shot! .. but you should really stop using dx lenses on fx cameras ... ;-)
PS : Horizon needs a small tweek..
Shutterdancer - even though I'm not really a macro fan, I'd really like to say these are amazing shots!! Well done!
Regulator - beautiful captures of those reflections, like your flower shot as well!
Studio460 - some very good beach shots, but how do you stay invisible with a 80-400? I guess people on the beach (especially girls) wouldn't like to see a photographer there. I mean: I already get nasty/angry looks when fully clothed people in the city have the feeling they are within the reach of my lens...maybe I'm doing something wrong.
Foofiebeast - love the retro colors in that Colorado shot!
Cancetlu - love your black&whites, especially because they ARE black&white; different than most Africa shots.
Arthur, thanks...to be perfectly honest with you, it always seems like pictures that are my favorite composition tend to be just slightly out of focus or the lighting is not very good. I love black and white photos, and by converting some of the less than perfect shots to black and white, it many times turns them into some of my favorites and gives me more keepers.
Well, I actually think that the ability to turn bad shots into good pictures makes you a good photographer!
Thanks for your reply, think you have a point: when you act insecure, people won't like or trust what you're doing. I missed quite a few good shots because I didn't dare to make a picture. A professional attitude will be accepted more, but I wonder if that's something that can be learned.
But hey, sorry all, didn't mean to hijack this forum, this is about pictures!
Actually this thread becomes my favorite when discussions about the photos get going, it's always so interesting!
haven't seen any new ones from you in awhile though...
