    Nikon Showcase Viltrox 24mm f/1.8 in Z Mount

    I know there is a Nikon Z f/1.8 Primes Showcase, but thought I'd segregate out the third party and give Viltrox it's own. this one for the 24mm. I'll probably be the only one posting in here for a while, but at least this will give others a look. Not much to see about it right now. Only got...

    Manual Lens Vivitar 24mm f2 (Kiron, Nikon F mount)

    I'm getting more and more frustrated that Zeiss nor Voigtländer (Cosina) make a nice MF 28mm for Sony E-mount (full-frame), so I'm thinking of getting a Zeiss Loxia 2.4/25 when a good deal comes along. To find out if that focal length works for me, I took the only 24mm I have, an old Vivitar...

    SIJ 31 - onwards, with hunks

    2 of my female roommates decided that what our kitchen really needed was a calendar with hunky celebrities. I honestly couldn't tell you who this is, except that he passed their hotness test, and now he's Mr February... :tongue: I did audition for the calendar, but since I'm not a celebrity...

    SIJ 27 - Conger

    Today was the first time ever I attempted street photography. It was reallllly scary (i'm kinda shy), but the few people who caught me didn't seem to mind terribly, so that was very encouraging. This market salesman was one of them, he even commented on it but he seemed to think it was funny...

    SIJ 22 - inundated

    I was at my parents' place this weekend, and we went for a walk through some forest and fields nearby. It was a pretty cold and windy day, and as you can see it has been raining a lot. That's my mom and sister walking down the road, all the way to the right. I pushed the shadows in this photo...

    SIJ 20 - before we made our land

    this ditch, between a fancy neighbourhood and a piece of land with allotment gardens, seems to be brought back to a swampish state, similar to what apparently covered most of the country before the water was pumped out and the land cultivated.

    This is the future lobby of Rotterdam's Central Station. The entire square in front of the station has been a building site for a about 5 years now, and it'll remain that way untill 2013 or 2014 I think. The temporary pedestrian routes from tram to metro to busses to the trains change every...

    SIJ 18 - plastic paper bag

    this is my bag for waste paper. I clearly should've gone to the paper recycling container with it a long time ago, as it's spilling over. And yes, I eat too much pizza :redface: but I tell myself it's okay since I'm training for a marathon so I need the energy :tongue:

    Inspired by Armando's shot somewhere early in the SIJ (did he quit, by the way?) of a legal document, and by the crease I accidentally made in my Tax Law book, I made this photo. Straight out of camera jpeg.

    SIJ 16 - bad shot, don't bother

    unfortunately this was the only shot I took yesterday. I meant to take something better when I got home but I fell asleep. I wanted to show the ice in the ditch this house boat floats in, but it didn't really work out. Still, I prefer to post a crappy photo than break my SIJ promise, so there...

    SIJ 14 - sky sunset

    out of pure desperation, I shot this sky, although it was also very nice to see it hadn't become totally dark even though it was half past five already (we're at the western edge of our time zone so we're pretty lucky in terms of late sunsets, and pretty unlucky in terms of late sunrises. Lucky...

    I had hoped to make it to our central station, which is being rebuilt and that looks pretty impressive. Just in case I didn't make it there, I shot this for safety - good thing that I did! There was one other shot from this place that I liked better, but it was shot using another EFL than 24mm...

    This is the main examination hall of my university - actually, this is only about 40% of it, but it's the largest expanse I could get in one frame. Need more wide angle!

    SIJ 11 - mirror game

    Yesterday I was up doing homework untill 3:30 at night, and I hadn't taken my SIJ photo yet. So, just before going to bed, I aimed my mirrors above my sink towards each other as much as possible, and tried to make a photo of the resulting reflections. I made this my first ever B&W...
