    Hi all-

    I just bought a Nikon 105/2.8 from a Nikonian and got to play with it a little today. It's a non-VR (he had upgraded) so both of these are shot on a tripod in my front yard. They were shot RAW, so I had to use Lightroom a little to brighten them up. I'd love an C&C that you all have, since you're the ones who inspired me to get the lens in the first place :) 



    Thanks for looking!
  2. Good job on those, sharp where they need to be and nice bright colours.

    Thanks Alex! I'm having lots of fun playing in the front yard. I think the neighbors might be concerned about me though :)
