1. Blown highlights.

    I tried mighty hard to get the exposure right on this one, but still ended up with blown highlights. It is a tough balance between trying to get the right light. 

  2. More cherry blossoms.

  3. My alma mater, one of the prettiest campus in US, yet I had no time to pay attention when I was in school.

  4. With just right the bit of sunlight hitting on the flowers…

  5. Cherry blossom, the old lens shines again. 

    I have a Nikon 50mm F1.2 AIS lens, it is manual focus with superb built. But I have seldom used it in the past simply due to the fact it is difficult to focus using cameras with small viewfinders. The D800 changed all that. The result is simply magical. It has that certain bokeh and lightness that helps capture more of a “dreamy” look.

  13. I am really enjoying the Nikon D800 and 24mm F1.4 lens. I bought the lens almost a year ago but never felt comfortable using it on a DX sensor. This is certainly one of the sharpest lens out there, but for web use it is a waste because the detail doesn’t get showcased.
