    I will remain absolutely pure except for the two weddings I have to shoot this month. I should be able to post one image a day. :smile: This is my first time joining anything like this, so take it easy one me :wink:.

  3. I like it except of some dead space on top right. Which body are you using? Nice, clean ISO 2000.
     
  4. I'm going to guess 1978 on the vintage of that thar thing.

    You are very very close! I think it's '75, if I'm not mistaken.
     
  7. Nice composition, although I agree that drawing in the upper right corner a bit might improve it. I like the focus on the balance slider, which in fact is the centerpiece of the unit and also conceptually the center of the sound. Lovely narrow focus and bokeh.
     
  8. Those were the days... Big shiny knobs... Jethro Tull, Led Zeppelin

    Yeah baby !!!

    Oooops !?!?!?! Sorry :tongue:

    Thanks, Craig. This lens does alright in the bokeh department :smile:



    Excellent observations! Thanks for expressing your thoughts. :smile:

    LOL! I was only 2 years old when this equipment was introduced. :tongue:
     
  10. Marantz! Nice. I have a Pioneer (not as good as Marantz) circa 1974. And the turntable too.

  12. Nice shot! But you gotta watch where you point that thing . . . It's sharp!
     
  13. It's a nice shot, but I would like to see something else in the bg.
     
  14. Nice portrait. Did you do pp on the eyes?

    Very nice shots. The sigma 50 1.4 is new correct? That is super sharp. Have you had the nikon 50 1.4? You prefer this one?

    ETA: this is not a DX equiv??? I loved my 30mm sigma 1.4 but can't use it on the D700.
     
  16. Really sharp. Although the DoF is probably a bit to shallow for that shot -- I got to get me one of those Sigmas!

    Thanks, Jani! :smile: It was just a quick impromptu shot whilst at work.


    No PP on the eyes. Large window to camera left and large florescent lights from above :biggrin:
