A Face Only a Mother Could Love

Dolores Neilson June 16, 2005

One of the clearest and most detailed macros I have ever seen!! And this with the Nikkor 200 and S3??? Makes me want to run out and upgrade to the S3 and get the lens! Wow! Amazing work, Bob! I suspect the judges will be impressed...cuz I sure am! #264200

Robert Jensen June 16, 2005

Thanks Dolores. Always good to hear from someone like you who does such great work. You have some very creative images that have inspired me.

Anyways, in December I stopped shooting film when the S3 came out. I could never go back to film now. I used my friends 200 for this shot. It is the newer AF model. I have the old manual focus 200, and it appears to be just as sharp. I love the S3 and have been making 16x20 prints from the digital files.
