Thanks so much for the kind words. That Tokina lens has renders OOF areas so smoothly, you'd think it was a Tamron macro lens. Too bad it's so big and heavy.

Thanks again Bob. I don't care how old the "S" cams are, they still produce wonderful files even when compared to todays newest and best DSLR's. It's hard for me to believe how little they sell for used, it's a joke really! If I wanted to do wedding photography or open a studio, they'd be the first cams I'd look at, which says a lot given their age.

Hi Carsten,

Yeah, I'm sure the S3 or S5 would work beautifully. After every pic you post with that Samyang 35mm 1.4 it makes me want one:) It renders the OOF areas so beautifully, buttery smooth. Really like the first shot.

Hi Colin,

Nice to see your name appear in the weekly thread, would love to see you here more often. Lovely pic. Asian culture is so interesting, the dress and decorations are so intricate. It must be very impressive to see in person.

Thanks for participating.

Nice bike Carsten what model is it please?

Hu ?

I don't remind me exactly which Bike this is.
(Probably a three Wheeler).

Here a 100% Crop from a other Photo where You can See a Part of the Saddle.
Take a closer look to the Bike Bell for the Bike Model.

Yeah, I'm sure the S3 or S5 would work beautifully. After every pic you post with that Samyang 35mm 1.4 it makes me want one:)

Get one !
Or buy the 35mm F/1.8 DX Nikon + a good CA correction Software.

It renders the OOF areas so beautifully, buttery smooth. Really like the first shot.

Thank You, it was Shot @ closest Focus Distance.
Next Week my Dealer has the 10mm F/2.8 Samyang for around € 500 and some more Models.

Around 0.5-1 Month, i have a 16mm F/2 or the mighty 14mm F/2.8.

Thanks for the words Mark, I'll try and keep participating but I've just bought a D610 so S2 shots will now be ever more diminishing.

When we bought our house in 1987 the owners had a saguaro in the front yard, imported from Arizona 9 years before.  Unfortunately during the 90-day escrow it died and it was something I was not pleased about.

However the other succulents survived and they bloom yearly.

Has there been enough rain in your parts for some great bloomin' cactus?

We need rain in the fall to make for a great wildflower season. Last fall we got none and this spring virtually no wildflowers. A real bummer for me because I really enjoy going out and shooting them. The cacti don't depend much on rain so the saguaros are budding nicely. The Argentine Giants, which have the largest cactus flowers did well this year but they are just about done. I'll probably shoot the Saguaro flowers later this spring when they're in full bloom. Barrel Cactus are also starting to bloom now. Their flowers are not as dramatic as the Argentine's or Saguaro's but are a beautiful yellow.

I'll post when I get some. BTW, I have a Saguaro in my backyard that I transplanted from my daughter's home and it's not budding yet. Hope it does.

Lovely shots Tom, I'm sure this looks wonderful on the wall. As I've heard/read others say, if you can fill the frame with your subject you can print large "S" files without any difficulty.
