Nikon Nikon 35-105mm f 3.5-4.5

24 May

This is my newest lens. As the description says, it is 35-105mm, with a 3.5-4.5 f/stop.

My mystery lens/

so, as you can see it isn’t the “D” version, as then it would be DX format, which I do not want on the Nikon D610.

I bought it through EBay, it was listed as follows:

[Mint] Nikon AF Nikkor 35-105mm f/3.5-4.5 FX Zoom Lens by DHL from Japan

it is definitely capable, and I mean very capable, at macro, and takes a nice landscape, with focus locking.

Can you identify it? This is specifically for Ken Rockwell @

I took this image at the end of my street. A little work and POP!

Amazingly, this was ALL done on my new mobile phone.


A new lens . . .

14 Nov

Well, the excitement builds, I bought myself a new lens.

Nikon AF 35-105mm f 3.5-4.5, so portrait shots and landscapes will be a new treat. Oh, it also does one of my favorites, Macro. And with the brilliant f-stop range, I get brilliant Bokeh.

The Bokeh is brilliant.
The ever best doggo ever – Bear Dog.

So, as you can see, the possibilities are getting closer to endless.

My next lens, which will be very expensive, is a Nikon AF 14-24mm lens. Will cost me ~$2000, so some saving will be needed. one day.

Images made better

6 Nov

OK, so I have been asked how I get my images to look “so good”. I was humbled by this but also proud to have been complimented so.

Here is an example of Before, during and after.

This was done on an old jpeg I shot (before I started shooting in RAW).


This is the original jpeg straight from Nikon D-60.


This image has been put into Photoshop. I then applied Athentech Perfectly Clear. As you can see, exposure and contrast have been sorted.


Finally, this is the tool of tools. Easypanel. Look it up, you will never look back. The tool I used Sharpen (I believe it uses invert and un-sharp mask) It seems backward, but works a treat.
