    Guy,
    All your pictures with D800 are beautiful, and your color processing is amazing, could you please explain your workflow. Thanks

    Made my first print from the D800E tonight. This image was shot with the 24-120/4 VR lens. Print is 11x14 on glossy paper using my Epson 3880. The detail is amazing!

    Time to go BIGGER!

    Now where did I stash that 17x22 inch paper?

    Guy how would you compare your new 24 1.4 to the 14-24 at 24mm. Just wondering as I have a new 14-24 sitting here just waiting for a d800e on backorder. Thanks, Eleanor

    Its a very nice lens the 14-24 and I was torn on selling it but wanted the speed of the 24mm which i like a lot. The zoom is big though and it did bug me slightly.

    Re: Fun with D800 Photos

    Hi Eleanor - just LR4.1 and Nik Viveza 2. Processed slightly low on saturation, then saturated in Viveza 2 plus a little 'structure' for pop. Maybe lighten shadows slightly, but the default LR4 tonal curve is pretty good. PS for perspective/keystoning (wish LR would do this). But really, very little work is needed and is more a matter of taste than necessity...

    D800E and AF-D 70-210/4-5.6. 10s f/13 (3 stop Lee ND). The 8 stop ND was way too much... should really get myself a 5 stop - 40 sec would have been perfect! (That's the Pigeon Point lighthouse)

    Here's a crop form that shot... dark areas couldn't be cleaner. In fact, I picked up a little bit of midtone noise texture from my processing, from the sharpening. The dark end picked up none - it's cleaner than the midtones! Welcome to the concept of sharpening shadows while protecting midtones.

    Another shot of the Pigeon Point lighthouse with the D800E and 70-210/4-5.6D. With an 8-stop ND.



    Here's one with the 14-24, wide open at 14mm, at Heritage Grove. There was someone else shooting here and this was his idea. We chatted a bit, during which I shamelessly stole all his ideas.

    Re: Fun with D800 Photos

    Jan are you finding any hot pixels with long exposures? Several weeks ago I shot a water scene with my phase one p65 back using 9 stop nd in bright daylight and the file was literally covered with hot pixels ...totally unusable. I'm hoping the d800e will do well with long exposures! Eleanor

    You made me go check... and I can't see a single one. It's possible something is hiding in detail though it can't be many. I'm sure it has a lot of them actually, it's just that either the dark-frame long exposure NR handles them, or they're unmapped at the factory. Whatever they've done I can't find any, so it works.

    I did, however find I managed to catch the highly elusive Two-Beaked Western Gull!

    model from this afternoon. good kid. we're planning on shooting some more, and just hanging out as well. haha. he needed natural shots for Wilhelmina. has his second interview next week, and then is flying to nyc. interestingly...he currently stands about 5'11 (he seems to think 6', but he's no taller than me. haha)...but is seeing a chiropractor to fix his back up after an accident a while back, and will be nearly 6'2 after. insanity!



    D700, ISO 400, 85/1.4G @ f/4, no retouch, just a minor crop. i knew the lens was sharp wide open, but good heavens is it prickly at f/4! this is diffused window light, with a 7' PLM as a reflector for fill (powered off).

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Sometimes, when I have picked up a couple of films at the lab, loaded them in the scanner and the results start appearing on my monitor, I re-discover photography. Sometimes, I know that, even if I could re-create the results with a digital camera, it would take time and effort on the computer and still, I wouldn't be sure if I was there or not. Film has a way to capture the real atmosphere of a scene that I rarely see with digital cameras. The world isn't grain-free, it's as simple as that.

    Would I change the F6 for a D800? I don't think so.

    F6 with Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 AF and Fuji Proplus II 200
    The film is mostly available in third world countries. In Cambodia, it's $2 per roll and my lab charges me $1.50 for development. Life is good

    Jim,

    Love all of these and am curious about your processing workflow. The last two shots especially have a look that fits the subject matter perfectly. Congrats on getting the "E".

    thanks Joe!
    I was always a Vericolor kind of guy (Misrach, Shore, Sternfeld )... most of my color processing is done to get something closer to that look (color negative film, 70's, 80's). The aesthetic speaks to me more than Velvia did.

    I almost always put an image through SilverEfex first.. usually with a warm to neutral split tone... often adding a little grain (never have liked 'clean' images... still shoot film for that reason). After conversion, I take a duplicate of the original color layer, put it on top, set it to Color mode, and dial it's opacity until I get the look I want

    For b/w work, i have a few split tones i've dialed in to dup some of the b/w silver prints I've done.. and use that

    I really like how it gives you a somewhat "colorized B&W" look. Excellent!

    I'm impressed with the D800 too.....and especially these images from Hawaii. I wish my "summer" in Alaska this year looked more like yours. 48 degrees and raining on my drive home tonight....definitely not weather for birds in bikinis on the beach.

    Thorkil, I used two images and mixed them together. One without oil and one with oil. The reason for using two images is that it get messy with oil running down the tomato and it did not look nice to me. The oil also gave some strange color to the tomato.

    I think it looks better without the oil anyway.

    Both are 2005 but the "published" was the girl (now 6 1/2 years older).
