    ^Looks like a great place to do some photography! Some from a recent trip to Great Sand Dunes NP: 4x5 Velvia: Great Sand Dunes - 4x5 Velvia 50 by Zach Boumeester, on Flickr Great Sand Dunes NP by Zach Boumeester, on Flickr Abstract look at the dunes: Abstract Great Sand Dunes by Zach Boumeester, on Flickr Great Sand Dunes by Zach Boumeester, on Flickr Great Sand Dunes NP by Zach Boumeester, on Flickr Great Sand Dunes NP by Zach Boumeester, on Flickr Great Sand Dunes NP by Zach Boumeester, on Flickr Great Sand Dunes NP by Zach Boumeester, on Flickr Great Sand Dunes NP by Zach Boumeester, on Flickr Great Sand Dunes NP by Zach Boumeester, on Flickr

    Great shot of your kid. The light tones work perfect. And yes I've used extension tubes with some success (I think). Though, the quality won't be that of a good macro lens. Macro lenses are generally optimized for close focus distances vs infinity focus. The kenko tubes are really cheap though and provide AF, but that is somewhat useless. 135mm + extension tubes 85mm Rokinon + extension tubes: 135mm: And one of Stella from June I forgot to upload. 135mm dialed in a bit soft:

    I actually had no idea it was a volcano until a few days ago. Another from the Redwoods. I was chasing light rays too much. Did my best to reduce contrast but keep the light rays dominant and maintain texture in the trees. 4x5 HP5+ @250 f32 for 1 sec with Caltar 75mm lens. Developed in Rodinal 1:50 for 10 minutes.

    Yes! I drove there from Crescent City one day. Took some old logging roads up a nearby mtn/hill.

    Thanks guys! A few more: Redwoods: D300s and Tokina 11-16m 50mm: The light edge at the top of the hill is from blowing sand.

    Mist trail at Yosemite: Nevada Fall. Also shot a 4x5 but I like this one better:

    Not sure? I don't see one on mine. If I bump the contrast to max in CS5 I can start to see one but only on the dip in the middle.

    Grand Teton - I didn't want to go the known places in Grand Teton but didn't spend nearly enough time there to get out and really hike through. The mountains here are awesome but I would have rather done a more unique composition from a more unknown location.

    One from Death Valley: D300s and Tokina 11-16mm.

    Thank you. It was a fun road trip. But I didn't shoot as much film as I hoped.

    13 day road trip. One of the few I got of the redwoods: 4x5 HP5+ @320 in Rodinal 1:50 for 10 minutes. Crown Graphic Special - Caltar 75mm f/6.8 @f/32. Metered time of 6 seconds exposed for 36 to account for reciprocity.

    Looking great Greg. What don't you like about that camera? They seem to be having some issues that will be fixed with a firmware update but I don't know what those issues are.

    I thought it was the 105? On NikonRumors they were complaining that it wasn't the 135. I definitely won't get it either way. It will be way too much.

    Soft focus with the 135mm on D300s. @f/2.8 DC on full R:
