    I recently came within a millimeter of buying a D3s until the rumors of a D4 started to solidify. But I've decided to make the transition to full frame with a D700 in preparation for new bodies from Nikon later this year. So I've begun replacing all my DX lenses with FX-capable glass. Yesterday was the first time shooting with the D700 and I still haven't sussed out how to process the files. Love the compact body though. Two with the 17-35.





    Best,
    Tim
    Outstanding Tim!

    Thanks all.

    Matt, it's a Honda Jazz. In Japan it's a Honda Fit.
    There's actually a funny story behind that: They originally planned to call it Honda Fitta, when some polite soul made them aware of the fact that "Fitta" is Norwegian slang for women's genetials. So they changed it to Jazz and Fit. Not sure if that increased or decreased their sales potential in Norway

    Matt. understand exactly what you mean. One of the major reasons, I left the

    Thanks Rayyan, Steve, Lloyd!

    I finally got my hands on a Zeiss 100mm ZF.2 macro. Yahoo baby! This lens is the sweetest thing I've held since I was 16! This shot doesn't do it justice, but I had to post something since I only received the lens yesterday and have fallen hard for it.

    Big congrats Tim. One piece of equipment I'm genuinely jealous of... and hope to have one day. Gorgeous shot... looking forward to more.

    A few more from the Bryce Canyon Winter Festival. These from the Ski Archery Race. This is the kid's race, and these kids are intense competitors!

    All with the D3s, 70-200/2.8 VRII, ISO 200:




    Their technique might not always be the best, but they are intense all the same.

    Rayyan, Tim, beautiful Zeiss treats from both of you.

    Especially love the candle shot, Rayyan.

    Tim, so what's your processing and profile here?


    Pete: thanks for the extra info.

    Lloyd, super action set. These two stand out for me for the intensity of the expression and the calculations going the young lady's head.

    Lovely presentation.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Lloyd: I love the second shot of the boy skier (222)—the high key effect works beautifully—especially so in that shot.

    Rayyan: You are everywhere! Lovely to be treated to the world through your eyes.

    Everyone else, thanks for your comment on the dead Poinsettia, it's (hopefully) the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

    Corlan: Processing is C1 to PS-CS5. Push the bars around, throw a few Adj. layers on, then open my eyes with fingers crossed. I'm discovering how much better the FX files handle being pushed around. I can only imagine (gulp) what MF files must be like to work with. Please don't anyone tell me.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Why are we stopping here, asked Aria. ( my guide, driver and friend )

    To have coffee and maybe lunch, I said.

    But we just had breakfast, and it is only 0900 hrs.

    Well in that case, I said, we just sit, relax and watch.

    But you came here to take photographs, we are wasting time, protested Aria.

    No, I said. I came to learn, have fun and take photographs. Why don't you take some photos of the ladies Aria. I taught you how to use the camera.

    Aria went away with the camera, none too happy.

    We had lunch. Let's go Aria, I said. Where? Hotel, I said. I am tired.

    But we did not take any pictures today. A day wasted, he said.

    No, I said. I learnt a lot Aria. In three hours, 25 cars stopped here. Their guides parked their cars. Everyone got out. Walked about. Took photos.


    So, Aria, this is not the place for me to take photos of the rice fields from.

    Tomorrow, we shall find another place, where we do not have cars stopping..
    except ours. And Aria, I shall sleep in the back now.

    You're too modest making it sounds like it's pure luck
    To answer your question on the side, well working with both file formats if you don't need larger prints and/or don't pixel peep all night long, the difference is not that big. What makes a lot of difference is usually the care involved, and lighting equipment used... and sometimes (often?) photography and processing skills. Honestly the D3x is a real treat when pushing around files (IMHO there's at least as much difference in that regard between D3X-D700 than DX-FX). Hopefully the next genration FX bodies will be on par. in the meantime D700/D3 are still great tools!

    Lloyd, lovely colour and detail in your skiing shots. I've always been afraid of blowing highlights with snow. You seem to have solved that problem

    Thanks Jorgen. I was fortunate that it was overcast that day so I didn't have any hotspots on the snow to contend with. I've shot a lot of nordic skiing, and it can definitely be a problem.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    A little bit of Waikiki Beach surfing. Not exactly the Banzai Pipeline. Clearly 450mm equivalent isn't enough! Note: I wasn't paying much attention to the ISO setting. These aren't anything special. I'm only posting them for those of you with 2' of snow outside your door.

    1. D7000; 28-300mm; 300mm; 1/5000s @ f/5.6; ISO 1000


    2. D7000; 28-300mm; 300mm; 1/5000s @ f/5.6; ISO 1000


    Cheers, Matt

    Matt, first a big thank you. I cringed..' character out of a novel'. Faustus, he will say. Sold his soul! But no, I can breathe again..Proust is a walk in the park.

    Thank you.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Something from the vault. Just to change places.

    Reason 3/1000 why I love Europe. The transport system. Locals might grumble
    about it. But inter-country, inter-city, or within city..the transport system in western ( and Eastern ) Europe is superb.

    Anyway, as I walked. I thought I saw something that caught my attention.

    I stopped. Walked over. Wished a few people. Kissed a few. Just as I thought.

    A Moroccan Wedding, they said. I love the Moroccan Arabic. Mix of Arabic and French. Unique. Lyrical. Incomprehensible at times.

    No, I was not dressed properly to go in. I would have loved to. Wished them well. Left to wherever I was headed.


    What's that got anything to do with the European transport system?

    Nothing. Just thought I would mention it. Since I was on the way to the tram.

    Vive La France!!

    I agree completely about the transportation systems in Europe. If they want something to really complain about, they should come and try ours!

    Very interesting story, and an even more interesting way to tell it. Great shot. I love that you included the flags, which the groups they're arranged it, sort of mirror the groups of people.

    A very beautiful and interesting face. The eyes suggest a hint of self-consiousness, perhaps at being photographed, but they also smile. The countenance in general is very serene. Perfectly captured portrait.

    Nice surfing shots Matt. Interesting perspective. I wondered about your ISO settings, btw. Seems to work just fine.
