Thanks! I saw that background and thought the pedestrian light would make a nice foreground :-) Glad you like it!

I'll take that as a compliment Leo
This was mainly a first testround with the lens, also trying to see what it could do as a compact telephoto.
In some cases I took similar shots with both lenses, just to compare. In a few cases I liked the 70-400 shot better.

Obviously I had some more typical mirror lens shots too. Not as nice as yours though... Your last set is very nice!

Ok Leo, I will be careful with photos of you next time

A nice set with the traffic lights. Very mindful to wait for the green light first. and I like the B/W conversions (particularly Da 12 )

@fred: again a fine addition to your set.
The stork shot shows how sharp the little mirror lens is

peg25 shows how well the whole rebuild of the station was successful (imho)
And peg27 has a 60-ties feel. Probably the B/W conversion

Thanks Leo! DA17 looks like a fish though

Great use of the Rubinar, showing it's bokeh capabilities

Great reptile show Fred, hard to pick a favourite (FS5 - FS62)

Da9 "Muntiacus" is a fantastic mirror shot, lively bokeh but not too donutty! Da14 looks almost bright daytime and Da15 is also very nice.

Agree Domien and Fred's fish shots are very good, so it payed off to spend your time there

Da18 indeed looks very prehistoric

Nice station series Fred, the blue lights all work well and FS80 is nice composition with all the horizontals and verticals broken by a very strong V-shape


And now my last three as well

peg34: Viewfinder or live-view, probably a personal preference



peg35: Shootout



peg36: Artisans in the hands of the artist




34: A7Rii + FE70-300G, 35 & 36: A7ii + Tamron FE28-200 Di III RXD
