    While the nikkor 85/1.4 is a generally accepted as a superb lens for
    portraits, it's performance as a small tele with superb color rendition
    and performance for other general images is equally impressive.

    Passing by I noticed this vegetation in a small rock crevice, the colors
    were too good to miss.

    maybe not my best with the 85/1.4, but definitely one of my favorites.

    Thanks for looking.
     
  2. Love the colors (especially on the 1st photo) and it nice to see the 85 f/1.4 being used for something more than to show a super narrow DOF on portraits etc... Well done and thanks for sharing.....

    Wally,

    Thanks for the kind words. Most of my 85/1.4 usage is other than for portraits.

    I find it suits me for almost everything, even close-ups with an extension.

    Take care.

    Appreciate your kind words. Yes sir, the 85/1.4 has many secrets yet to be
    discovered by me.
