    the first one i would have really liked but i think the pink in the right side of the background got in the way of making it a nice photo. also wondering if you think the DOF was too shallow, i think it woulda been better if the base of the flower was more in focus ?? bloody hard to get the right focal point on macros, much tougher than i thought.

    Hahahaha. Actually that crankset has 5 miles on it. The chain had some pretty serious grease on it (long term storage). That crap is practically brand new!! I put them on my old bike and then this weekend built up a new bike, reusing most of the components off the old frame.

    Oh, and on the AF comment, I have REALLY crappy eyes and even with the focus assist on my D70s, 75% of the photos came out horribly. However, I still love the 85mm lense. Its great for product photography on a tripod but horrible off hand.

    Here is a shot using my 18-200VR. I use that lense for just about everything. The 85mm is more of a toy than a working piece of equipment.

    Exposure: 0.017 sec (1/60)
    Aperture: f/5
    Focal Length: 65 mm
    ISO: 200

    This one of course violates the rule which tells us never to 50/50 land and sky... but there are certain times when I like to disregard that rule (tell me if I should be cuffed and led away for it). ISO 1600, .52 sec. f/13 @ 18mm



    A little exposure lightening (shouldn't have been using spot metering, but I forgot - shame on me!) and then some contrast readjustment in Lightroom.

    Looks like 49/51, so you're good Besides, it seems to lend itself well with the pier.

    It's still not spring here, but it cleared up enough for me to get this shot:

    I'll go back when there's some green on those willow branches! But what I enjoyed most about this shot was that I used the "rubber band method" for a Bulb exposure. This one was 57 seconds long. It was nearly dark outside. I pulled up the exposure quite a bit in PP, but I was able to do 57 seconds without overexposing the water

    As always, C&C appreciated.

    Thanks! Bulb mode allows for extremely long shutter speeds. You can use a shutter release, but if you don't have one (like me,) you can use a rubber band to hold the shutter button down. Remove the rubber band to end the exposure. It was fun, you should try it! I've heard of people taking extremely long exposures, such as several hours doing star trails.

    edit: by "shutter release," I do mean a remote shutter controller.
