I'll get us started with a selection of portraits - let's see your best from the month.
Finally time to get past all those threads on disappointing announcements, belly-aching over prices and new ways to argue equivalence and look at some pretty pictures.
I actually had a hard time picking this month. Maybe since it was a short month, I didn't have a big catalog to choose from. But, as always, I like diversity so here's mine:
Leica Macro-Elmar-R 100 4
Leica Elmarit-R 28 2.8
Kaligar 1.5" 1.9 8mm movie lens
Leica Summicron-R 50 2 + Metabones FR
Olympus 60 2.8

All P100-400 except for the landing osprey. That was shot with an old Tamron 300 2.8.

Wow! I cannot imagine a worse motorcycle to ride on ice than a purpose built GP chassis made for road race tracks. Were they only going in a straight line?
Tough to hang with this crowd. A few animals this month with the 100-400. Need to get back to some landscapes for March, I think.
A varied selection for February driven mainly by the weekly challenges set by @TNcasual (thanks for your work on these they are appreciated).

I'm glad someone gets something out of them.
I shot a lot of birds this month with my PL 100/400, but have decided to choose some diverse photos with different lenses
Lloyds, after some snow.
how did you get to take a pic of Tom Baker?!
He's bloody good isn't he? Poor old Tom Baker doesn't look like that any more but Stuart Grant has the Tom Baker impression down pat. If you think the look is good, you should hear his voice - it's uncanny.
I've worked with Stuart a number of times, we did an invasion of the cybermen shoot last year, and he was at a photo studio opening I attended which is where I took this picture.
If you're interested in photographing him I'd be happy to put the two of you in touch with each other - drop me a PM for info.
