Yes, I’m so backed up on editing photos from my Sunday excursions with my sister that I was editing shots from October. The funnier part is that I have shots from April – the present unedited!
Yesterday I decided I would work on some of the photos I took when we went to Assunpink (I wrote about it back around October 15th or so).
A few favorites that I put a soft filter on (click to enlarge):
I can’t decide between the B&W and Color on these shots..I’ll have to post them on the forum I’m a member of to see what everyone thinks…
I’m leading towards color…we’ll see what everyone thinks.
And here is the favorite of today. I titled it “The Long Road Home.” I converted it to B&W and then burn & dodged the sky to enhance the sky & clouds to their fullest potential.
I’ve been wanting the Nikon 105mm f/2.8G VR AF-S lens but before I say that I definitely want it for my Birthday/Christmas I wanted to read as many reviews as I could since it’s a VERY big purchase.
B&H Photo is offering the lens for $759.95.
What I don’t like is Ken Rockwell’s review written Febrary 2006. He didn’t recommend it at the time and he mentioned that he hoped the auto-focus feature would be improved.
PopPhoto.com gave a very good review of te lens.
The Nikonians give the lens a good review and showed a test photo as if was used a portrait lens.
DPReview site gives a full overview of the lens.
I was lucky to find a Nikon Micro 105mm VR Sample Gallery on Pbase.com and the images look really great. The details in this sample gallery is tremendous! I’m glad I stumbled upon it.
Buythom.com had a very thorough review of the lens that I found exremely helpful and helped me to really understand the use of the lens.
