Thanks all. Matt, status quo isn't possible after this. There must be change, which is long overdue after all.
Lloyd, your wife continues to impress, and so do you. Your weather on the other hand... Arne's beautiful spring flowers seem more appropriate for this time of the year
I don't care what gear I have.

And it's always nce to see some of Arne's work here Definitely more compelling than Lloyyd's snowy version -though the maple (?) leaves close up is super nice.
Jorgen, the two shots of yours on the previous page are nothing short of remarkable. Hopefully when all ashes been extinguished over there, they'll rebuild on more "solid grounds".
Matt: cool flowers, too. Is it from the garden?
Leif: classic B&W. Love it!
Rayyan: you keep on taking us for a virtual yet colourful trip around the world... superb photos as usual.
Osman: looking at your shots and Rayyan's, i'm thinking about how badly i'd need some kind of vacation... btw, beside the shots excellent quality, guess it requires some patience to have these landscapes without tourists in the frame...
When volcanos get quieter, the windmills can resume having some fun...

A little bit farther down the road (not the same day):

This evening, Stockholm. D700, Fisheye-Nikkor 16/2.8D, D-Lighting effect at maximum.
Thanks for looking. Cheers, Matt

You're right, i guess that was the point posting these two in a row
Btw the first one is for a regional publication, one page spread. But no philosophy involved, just illustrating the area and their commitment towards renewable energies.
The new sail boat's great. You've added tranparency to details in the fabric, plus the boat angle brings in a dynamic touch. Real nice.
Lars: nice use of the FE. Great and busy scenery at sunset!
Rayyan: yet another superb situation portrait. There's an almost Vermeer quality to the blue on the wall and cushion. Nice thing to see that at least some of the textile work is not the result of mass production or modern Taylorism. Obviously, no standardization of tools in sight, there. And what a beautiful model, with an elegant stance.

Nice one, Steen. After the brick walls, now the tile roofs shot?
There's always some sense of mystery (or danger if you're below) looking at these with such a sharp angle...
Rayyan, Matt and Steen; marvelous shots...
Thanks, Corlan and Osman.
Corlan, I get what you mean, I even saw a man climbing on these roofs without any sort of security rope. Scary.
I didn't dare photograph him. You know, the wings of the butterfly etc. ...
Lars, nice fisheye capture. And excellent D-lighting processing.
What 'Software ver. 1.02' did you use for the D-lighting effect, has it anything to do with your software project (if I may be so curious) ...
Steen, i don't see no butter flying (poor one, i know ), but surely like the last shot above a lot -probably more than the previous one, but that's me.
Where was it taken precisely?
Can you guess the function?
Looks like a secret weapon. Nice catch. Are you sure photography is allowed
Steen, Rayyan, Corlan more magic (and no idea whatsoever on that mystery structure, Corlan). Thanks for the inspiration guys!

I readily admit that there's an element missing in the picture: the canal. But that i did not know either.
In fact, the whole structure is a... boat "elevator".
Not the small kind mind you: around 170 yards high, and it can lift and tow huge barges up to 1,500 tons total (!!) over a mile distance, @ the lighting speed of... 1m/s. It's used to compensate a steep slope between the two canal levels of around 80 yrds.
Sorry for the headache

The three above are my favourites, almost too good to be true. The first for the irradiating strength, #3 for the surreal moment and balance, last quoted for the calm, assured stance and perfect light.
Notwithstanding, this one below i feel is a keeper for life :
(not implying that your friend Mike bear any ressemblance, but...)
Thank you Steve, impressive body-building shots of your friend Mike, and man, that post processing ... !
and thanks Lloyd, very captivating Woman of Steel triathlon shots !
and thanks Matt, just love your latest sailboat picture, so intense and dramatic !
and thanks rayyan, your nepalese woman sewing is absolutely stunning, beautiful, beautiful !
oh, and Lars, I just saw that you have actually already answered us that your fisheye capture was processed in-camera from raw !
With regards to artifacts I'm more of a street rat than a museum lion, so I may not be the right to ask.
But according to this gentleman you are absolutely right
