Wow, some fantastic images here! Truly stunning and inspirational even.

This is a tough decision to make -- which is my most favorite photo . . . I don't really have a most favorite photo, but this one is definitely in the top 10. Taken in 1984. Canon AE-1, Kodacolor 100, Albinar 80-200 f/3.9.

Hey Basil, welcome to the forum. First post, images are not displayed. Quoting it is the work-around.

Thanks...I was wondering what I did wrong, as it showed up in the preview. LOL

Hard to pick a 'best', all of my photos were made with manual focus lenses.

Ok, its really hardn heavy for me too, because i mostly shoot with MF Lenses

so after all my portraits with different lenses like the Samyang 1.4/85mm, i did use my Leica Makro Elmarit 2.8/60mm for the following shooting of some pearls.. EOS 5D MKII

I cant decide, which one's best..



Or this...



or that..?




To hard to say, which of all my images is the best... sorry.

From this 3 maybe the first?

Cheers
Henry

Henry I love the first one !

The two others are great too, but the first is my fav.

I like the first...the minute dust on the black rose and the words in focus as well in the background.It just holds my interest...more than the other two.

I understand you, Andy.
It's a beautiful shot with very nice colours and a good composition.

Did you shoot it upside down ?
What was the lens ?

This is probably my best photo taken with an mf lens and a DSLR. It's actually a pretty tight crop of a much larger image. Canon XS (1000D) and Tamron 90mm f/2.5 macro.

I can't really give you my best, because they are all so different, but this is one I like:



The canals in Utrecht, in spring time. Taken with a SMC Tak 35/3.5.

My best shot in August 2009

Zuiko OM 135mm/3,5

Not my best shot of 2009, but the one that means the most to me, and possibly the most relevant to MF shooting as focusing a 5-year old in motion (it's not a posed shot) right in front of you is not really easy. Smile Taken with my Flektogon 35mm f2.4 on my *istD, no postprocessing.

Silver Helios 44, Sony A700
I kind of like this one with a real vintage Helios 44, although nothing special at all. It is perhaps the weird composition with some 3D effekt (on original size at least) and the blue oof rendering that cathes me. Or it is just the 16 month old tech-freak Smile
