AC Transit 3049 E 3-17-13

AC Transit # 3049, a NABI 416.09 from 1998, rounds the turn on Christie Street just short of Shellmound Street in Emeryville, CA. Taken by a Nikon F4s with a Nikkor 28-80mm ƒ 3.3-5.6 G lens on Fuji Press 1600. Negative scanned into computer by an HP G4010,. Dust reduction, contrast and brightness improved in Paint Shop Pro X2. .Original color shot reduced to black&white in Aviary®

This shot is about ½ to 1 stop under-exposed… I think it looks better in B/W, given the greyness of the day shot… Note that the camera under-exposed this, not the photographer…

Yes, the Micro-Nikkor can be used out to infinity – with quite good results!
