    Ahhh yes Thorkil, I see what you mean! maybe I will experiment with this in Corel Painter and my Wacom tablet :-)...I think for this exhibition I'm going to enter, pretty much anything goes! Thanks for the idea! (I've always wanted to be able to paint, but my natural talents have always been in photography so sometimes I look for image ideas that could pass for paintings!!! eleanor

Sometimes our brain has to have something unforeseen to awake, and if this have a function of a cry that is not to be heard, just being there to puzzle our small brain-cells, it can be that unbalance, that unstableness that actually create balance and more stableness than a plain harmonic picture, a sort of balance from a mixture of tension and harmony.
    I can tell f.ex., a yellow colour don't look yellow in the good way, if you dosn't come, lets say 1/30, or less, of yellow in as a red. People will then think its more yellow than a plain yellow. Just to say that our brain sometimes is sighing after contradictions, sometimes in the alarming way, sometimes just in the small small details.
    That was just something in that direction I meant to say

    perhaps also try moving while shooting at slow shutter, if you have a subject with the right colours, Thorkil..(just to see if some dreamy things arises)

    Two shots with the D800e, first one with the 85 1.4 taken in the evening from the Beartooth Highway, WY. Second taken with the 14-24 at a state park near Craig, Colorado. Eleanor

    Fun with the D600!

    Some of my first shots with the D600 taken on my morning walk yesterday. All shots were taken with the 45MM pancake lens.

    Thank you Thorkil. This is westwards in the very late evening. Sadly there is no midnight sun left and the days become shorter and darker each day.

    Re: Fun with D800 Photos

    Hi Fredrick, okay, then you have to "dark" pictures, also with light coming out from houses out there(?), only because I'm also curious to see some houses and some boat-sheds or something like that outthere.
    Thorkil
    Ps..and the 21mm might also get pleased with some strong foreground-action too..

    Re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Admin note: Due to aging of the D800/E and introduction of the D600, we felt it was time to merge the D800 thread with the regular fun with Nikon thread. We'll leave the D600 thread for about 6 or 8 months too before merging it here. As always, please include lens and body data as it helps some folks using the search fields.

    Thanks,

    Re: Fun with the D600!

    Hi Jack! I experimented with ISO 1600, 3200, 6400. I left the in-camera noise reduction off as I prefer to use Nik dfine. At 1600 it was ugly before processing, then smoothed out and was quite acceptable. 3200 ISO and up was ugly, especially in the shadows even after processing. The D700 and D4 are far and away the choice for anything above ISO 1600 from my early experiments.

    I'm going to try it again tomorrow evening, I'll post if I see anything worth discussing.

    >At 1600 it was ugly before processing,

    Please show this what you call ugly. Either you are very sensitive or the the D600 is not at the D800 level. I would call ISO 1600 for the D800 not great but maybe not really ugly.

    Re: Fun with the D600!

    Ugly, as in modeling of color noise. I would post it but I am not near my studio computer and will be on the road for a couple of days. Remember I said I shot this with in camera noise reduction off. When I took it through Nik dfine it cleared up. 1600 ISO is not the problem it is ISO at 3200 and 6400 that were bad - even after applying Nik dfine.

    Re: Fun with the D600!

    So this camera has noise at 1600 yet DxO hailed it as the third best sensor at the moment giving them an overall performance score of 94. Am I missing something here?
    Life is an infinite series of moments called..."now".
    My job is to capture them.

    Re: Fun with the D600!

    Thanks for the info Aboud! I'll be curious after you've had a chance to do more comparions at higher ISO with the D600, if you still feel the D700 files, noise wise are cleaner at ISO 1600 and above. Clearly I expect D4 files at these higher ISO's to be superior but thought at the very least, the D600 would closely match the noise performance of the D700. If it consistantly doesn't, more are going to clearly clammer for a true D700 successor.

    If you ask me, the merger could be done earlier, like after 3-4 months. Already a couple of months after a new camera is available to photographers, the images presented on this and other forums tend to become increasingly mainstream, comparable to those taken by any other cameras. That goes for other "new" cameras as well, like the OM-D.

    It's obviously a balancing act, gear vs. photography, but when the technical aspects of a new camera have been thouroughly documented, a separate thread detracts rather than adds to the creative value of photography. As fascinating as the new gear is, the ultimate target is still the photograph... I think
    I don't care what gear I have.

    D600 samples: flat, overcast light with 180/2.8...most images wide open or close to wide open.

    Shot on RAW...used Capture NX2 (came with camera) to convert image to TIFF. Saved to desktop...opened in Photoshop, did tweaking of color, light, sharpness, cropping...then converted to JPEG to share on this thread.

    Re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Back in London and looking through pictures from Madrid and Barcelona. Had an absolutely fantastic time except a bout of food poisoning, but feeling as though I need to do something a bit more structured photographically.

    Merce is a fantastic festival - museums are free, there are outdoor gigs, plays and dance performances, people are lively and the weather is fantastic. We need some of that stuff in the North for September! (Bonus points for having proper lighting at the gigs - ISO400-1600 with fast glass, and no wacky colour casts. Spain does things right.) Will get through them at some point soon, but here are a few to start:

    Gran Via in Madrid









    Friend trying on a siesta for size



    The aforementioned properly lit gig





    With the exception of the last image (85mm 1.8), all images were shot with a 24mm - either the PC-E or the 1.4 (depending on situation). What can I say, I'm an addict .

    Btw folks please help other members know your basic tech stuff. Lens , aperture, Iso data when posting images . It really helps members decide what they like and may want to own.

    Me too -- it's wider than I normally use, but has been growing on me lately.

    Re: Fun with the D600!

    Benroy,

    The greens look good -- what converter are you using?

    Depends also on raw converters.

    Jack & Guy... Thanks very much for your kind words. It is a fine lens and 17-20 mm is my favorite focal range.

    Re: Fun with the D600!

    Guy is right again. Until ACR and Lightroom support the D600 I don't know how it can be fairly evaluated. I would want to compare my D700 high ISO files, that were converted with ACR, to my D600 files when ACR supports it. Apples and apples. In the meantime I am using Nikon's view, making some minor adjustments and converting them to tif files to work in CS5. I feel I am definitely limited in my processing abilities.

    Try this. It's simple to use and has lots of options. Plus, it's free.

    Re: Fun with the D600!

    I picked up my D600 today too. First impressions are that the long exposure performance at least seems superior to that of the D800 in so far as LENR isn't required with the D600 under scenarios where I would have used it with my D800.

    I hope to get out at the weekend and give it some more serious testing but first impressions at least are very favourable and certainly the workflow with 24mp images is somewhat easier than with D800 files.

    A few UI foibles to work through to set up the camera as I like it (e.g. it seems like there's no option to use the multi-selector to auto-zoom on playback - maybe there is but I can't find it!). For what I want this camera for the puny 24mp is more than sufficient

    I hope to give it a run with my Zeiss glass and the 24-85 VR that I added today. For travel I'm still enamoured with my Fuji X-Pro1 system but the flexibility of a small Nikon FX DSLR really is appealing as a complement/alternative.

    Just forgot to tell you, Eleanor, that I really liked your pictures on your homepage. And yes one can see your eyes are going for "painted pictures", the "soft abilities" to see motivs...keep pushing(!)(do also think you can expand your moving pictures, just in the way just to make them just a tiny "dizzy"(also with less long shutter-time perhaps))(hope it's okay to say so)
