  2. I do love this pic! The contrast and exposure is dead-on. You are
    definitely an artist, Bret.
    And thank you from my heart!

    Nope.

    I'll explain more fully after I've shot with it for more than an hour.

    I have to agree with Helen. What a wonderful
    shot. Reminds me of a cat I had years ago.

    Thanks for the shot.

  7. Bret's holding out for a good deal on the legendary 58mm f/1.2 Noct Nikkor!
    I'm thinking about FedExing him mine and an adapter to use for a week to see
    what he really can do with a decent lens.

    Go for it. I promise to give it a fair day in court.

    Heck, while you're at it, Fedex me a 5D and we'll REALLY see what she
    can do!

  11. I think Bret meant it to be grainy. I did that a lot too when I wanted
    to enhance the grain. I used TMX P3200 for that special reason. It
    gave that special grainy, graphic and candid effect I wanted.

    My comment wasn't negative, BTW... It's just looks very...gritty--as the
    subject line sugjests...

  13. Oh, I know that Mark. I just wanted to say that I can relate to the
    reason why he would want the grainy effect. I used it a lot to capture
    the cold, harsh life of street people. It was really effective for
    that reason. I haven't shot with that high speed film in years.

    Keep the lens. I can't stop sneezing! I have an acute allergy to cats,
    didn't say I disliked them, just cannot breath in their presence. The
    pic made me sneeze. Keep the 50 1.2

    That may be the highest compliment I've ever received on one of my
    pics.
    "That pic made me sneeze." I'll have to remember that one.

    Whatsa matter? You don't like the artsy-fartsy look?
    I'm tryin to be an art-eest, like my friend, the Parisian Paparrazi.
    Maybe I need a funny hat?

    In camera Jpeg or RAW processed?

    And, would you mind putting a 100% crop of the left eye and part of his
    cheek?

    I only shoot in RAW mode. Thus, the original was in color.
    The processing for this one consisted of converting to B/W (using CS3's
    cool new B/W Adjustment Layer). adding a bit of noise, and then
    re-sizing.

    Sure, pal. No prob. Anything else I can do for ya? Want me to paint
    your house while I'm at it? The unprcessed full-size crop you
    requested is below.

    Well, why don't you try shooting in B&W in camera Jpeg at 3200 and see
    if you get the same banding that I am seeing in my shots?
    Thanks. I have siding, so no painting; but I could use some help in
    the crawl space this spring when it warms up a bit. Lots of photo opps
    if you like spiders, crickets, mice, black snakes and (much to my
    surprise) a rough green snake. Oh and there's plenty to view as really
    shoddy turn of the century (the 1900's one) foundation work.

    Thanks again, as I really know how it pains you to display your work.

    Is there really anything in CS3 to make it worth upgrading from CS2 to
    CS3?

    That 50 1.2L is a wonderful lens. The detail is very sharp. I had the
    cance to shot with the 50 1.0 several years back. Also very sharp. Just
    way to much cash needed to switch from Nikon to Canon.
    Your style and tecnique show through in no matter what you are
    shooting. Keep at it. Folks like you keep the photo world going for
    the next generations to come.
