Appreciate being picked this week to Host TW3, what we can call either the last of the year or the first of 2012. Mike, you always do a excellent job when hosting, which gives us all a chance to win one!! Good luck and lets get clicking

Rules are unchanged. I would like to add a bonus two shots taken on New Years Eve or Day along with the regular 9 images.


Few to get the week going.

well, i'm still in the black & white mode, mostly due to having unseasonably warm weather and no color left in anything. i took this one today and after the crop and mono mode, it's kind of abstract....which is ok with me.

Nice shot Mongooz, that is some nice texture, and I agree with Jim on the B&W.

Woohoo! Time for some Christmas pictures!

My parents were hosting our family's Christmas party this year, and I was expected to be the event photographer. I tried to tell them they had the wrong man for the job, but a fun time was had by all anyways.

I shot a bunch of family snapshots over the weekend but nothing i want to share. My kids decorated gingerbread houses, so i did get some of these f/1.2 bokeh shots:

Mike, you have done many photo's using this lens and F stop, that show what is capable. Love the old citar shots. I have a punch of the family over the past few days too. Keep those photo's coming boys and girls. Remember, one shot fron the last day of the year and your first shot of 2012, if possible. Cheers JIMBO

Three more I recently completed. Tim, you are correct, Mike has that lens figures out. A 1.2 F stop can push out some great bokeh. Cheers and where are some more of yours Tim? JIM

Nice shots Jim - I'm shooting Christmas decorations all month and you are out there getting Eagles and awesome landscapes. I'm almost afraid to post...NOT! Here are three more recent ones.

Jimbo- "High in the Rockies" is a great image. the perspective used gives the mountains a towering appearance and that sky is really lovely.

BCB-another killer sky, those clouds on the GGB photo are a knockout!

regarding the bokeh circles from the f/1.2, for max effect, you should be shooting your subject at the minimum focus distance of the lens; in this case of the Cosina 55mm, smaller subjects are the best fit (no full length portraits, etc).
here is an old shot i took using the lens:
