Nice portrait, really well done. Why do you have mixed feelings? Only slight problem would be the pentagram on the background person's lip. But that's looking for something.

What is the effect of the tube here, btw? Never thought they could be used for portraits (don't have one, never did, so could not try).
Well thanks. It just feels harsh. And I keep looking for more of that half face. The extension tube allowed me to focus that close and fill the frame with his face; otherwise, it's pretty much a head and shoulders distance with that lens and you'd have to crop it in a print or in post to get a tighter framing.

Nice landscape. The layers in the mountain are particularly interesting. A large stratigraphic section perhaps.

Two shots with the 105/2.4 wide open on P67II. Tri-X @ 400 developed in Calbe R09 1:60 for 12 minutes.






I'm finding this combo very easy to get sharp results with at slow speeds. The second one was shot handheld at 1/30 second, which many people claim to be "impossible". Maybe the 67II is more kind with the mirror slap than the previous versions?

Understood. I like harsh portraits. And looking for that other half is just the suspense that I like, too.

I can really feel the chrome on the first shot. Not sure if the 67II is different. Shutter inertia is still and issue in that 1/30 range even if you use MLU from what my 300mm has been teaching me. But heck, if you don't plan on a perfect poster-size print, go for it.

You're absolutely correct.

As quoted in Wikipedia: "The Rundle Group is a stratigraphical unit of Mississippian age in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin"

Well, 300 mm is waaaay worse than 100 of course. And I never do prints, but I pixel peep (or should that be grain peep?) a lot, and there's no trace of camera shake in that shot. Could be pure luck, but I don't think so. I'm not afraid at all of shooting at 1/60, that's for sure.

Edit: Heck, I actually believe that my D700 is more prone to ruining pictures because of mirror slap or camera shake, at the same angle of view and shutter speed.
