    I have a friend here who covers the Utah Jazz for AP. He uses Canon, and shoots with two cameras, one mounted with a 300/2.8 for shots when they are at the far end of the court, and the other mounted with an 85/1.2 for the near court. He's using the 1DsMKIV, so he has a cropped sensor, but he shoots from a little to one side of the basket, so he gets about the same perspective as I had in close and centered.

    I thought it worked well for me. I tried with the 70-200, but found I preferred using the prime. Less to think about, and that new "G" lens focuses in a heartbeat, which was a big plus.
    Exactly why i use primes. With a slow brain like mine (i still regularly forget to check/change the ISO setting for one thing... which after all is a typical digital thing -and not that frequent since shooting mostly ISO100), you're better off with as less parameters as possible

    Still have to try out the 85mm. Looks a real treat.

    Hope you got your kiss (and i don't mean from the big guy)
    Corlan, yes. I had to look up to her though!!

    Such a lovely team we have here at OPF. You guys are something else.

    Rayyan, I know you are waiting in anticipation for the next car photo. As a temporary bonus, here's one from November last year. I don't know if she has a driver's license, but who cares anyway

    D80 with 80-200 AF-S @ 200mm and f/2.8

    I don't care what gear I have.

    Jorgen, nice, very very nice. Drivers license, who cares. Drives or not
    I care.. a lot. I like to be driven! More hp the better.

    Lovely Capture.

    Nice photo Lloyd, there really is something magical about the 14-24mm. I just got mine and I'm enjoying it quite a bit.

    Lloyd, beautiful capture. I love the softness of the light and the almost pastel colors.

    My thanks also to your neighbor. You must be tired clearing up the snow!!

    Well done my friend.

    The excitement, for me at least, was not found in the model shoots or the pretty girls or the beautiful architecture and sculpture.

    The soul of Bali was here..


    I am convinced that is where it shall remain.

    Rayyan, i'm not a huge fan of the glamour glow treatment in general, but it's absolutely appropriate here. Fabrics textures and color look great, too. A soulful image beyond all technical trivialities anyway...

    On the subject of snow, it's gone here now, but we had some:





    "Some"? I mean, we got a fair amount...
    (and incidentally ended up on the 8 o'clock news for the very reason)




    (next/last one not taken with a Nikon (Leica), but gives a larger perspective...)

    Corlan, I learnt about the glamour glow and its effects after a long period of
    experimentation...on my photos.

    Showed it to friends, here are some generous comments about its effects and me in general..

    Rayyan if you want pity...leave things as they are.

    Rayyan if you want revulsion apply the glamour glow on your photos.

    Rayyan, btw, where were you when looks were being handed out ?

    Home, I said.

    Thanks Corlan.

    Rayyan: Can follow your interpretation of "the soul of Bali", though it's for sure a subjective view; but that's what is constitutive for great photography.

    Grateful to you, my friend... on all counts. Yes, I'm very tired of clearing the snow. Mimi thinks we should consider buying a snowblower. I'm to stubborn, I guess. So long as I can still use a shovel, I'll be doing it by hand, I think.

    Hermann, appreciate your kind words. I can only photograph what I connect with. That which moves me. Hence, it also is purely subjective. My point of view.

    There must be other things that move other people. They might find them to
    be the real spirit of a place. That other things touch other emotions for different persons is not only expected but must be perfectly acceptable. Even much better than my vision.

    I can, in my humble way, bring to you only that which touched my emotions.

    Thanks once again and my kindest regards to you.

    Maybe sort of "déformation professionnelle", but then again the photographic view sometimes follows not only an emotional impetus.

    Good eye, Lloyd. Thant was indeed quite surprising even for us.
    Several reasons: poor insulation is one, but you can see on the first image that the barn roof is the same, though the building is barely heated. Another one is that construction in this area seemingly took into account a long history of snow storms, so the roofs have a much sharper angle than what is apparent on these photos. And an elderly mentioned something about buildings orientation and disposition creating air currents in the village. Can't be sure about that, though.

    Another natural cause would be that it was really snow storms with a lot of whirling winds. Anyway...

    Rayyan, not our house on the photo, that one's up the hill so the contrast of snow levels was more dramatic for picture/documentation sake. We got stuck though for almost a whole week. One day, after shoveling for four hours, i could get the car on the "road" (i think). On the right the hill proved impossible to climb (got "passed" by a quite surprised, large walking hound when the car started to climb down backwards), so i tried the narrow winding street on the left (flatter). It was ok for the better part of a hundred yards or so -which took several minutes yet, hit a small curve then... a 2-meter high snowdrift blocking the whole street. Yeah, non-metric system measuring friends, that's just around 80".

    So, we waited. Patiently. Sharing canned food and leftovers with the neighbours. A Christmas to remember

    Oh, ok. I guess that's why we quit the urban life (after almost 40 years) for the good ol', poorly insulated country...

    Very interesting. In our neighborhood most of the roofs have about the same pitch. Behind us is a somewhat older neighborhood in which the houses roofs have a slightly shallower pitch, yet the snow stays on ours, and is off of theirs. One can pick out the houses where more modern levels of insulation have been added... they have snow about the same as ours.

    That's sounds like quite an adventure you had... glad it ended as it did, and not worse! Good reason to stay home for sure.

    "Urban Stages"


    D 700, 35/2 D @ f/2.2




    Thank you for your interest and best regards.
    Interesting image, almost looks like a composite. The wall of the building reminds me of some sort of code. Very interesting pattern.

    More from my niece's basketball game:

    All with the D3s, 85/1.4G combo, all at 1/1250, f1/4, ISO 1600:

    "The Mugging"



    "Losing the Handle"


    The team's other star (she scored 16 points).

    Almost made that remark. White Matrix. Would work just fine with Joe Pantoliano having a juicy steak behind the window...


    Shakespeare, Hermann? I must admit that the scene conveyed a bit more of an Orwellian atmosphere to me.

    Lloyd: Thanks for your kind words, much appreciated!

    Corlan F.: Cosiness was yesterday, so my observation. It seems so, that today particularly that counts, what not only Shakespeare (s.a. quotation), but as well Ovid some years ago (* 43 a. Chr. , + 17 p.Chr.) stated: "Spectatum veniunt; veniunt, spectentur ut ipsae". Orwell, that's another story.
    Best regards - Hermann

    Eye of the beholder no more. More like "who's the beholder?".
    Thinking about it that's a good approach to modern urban photography (and specimens)



    Lloyd: excellent. This combo works wonders in your hands.
    Colors are impressive indoors.
    Reason why i asked about the convenience of the 85mm FL earlier is that i remember finding the 105 on the short side when shooting an orchestra. But obsiously a basketball court is somehow smaller than large concert halls -at least from where you were standing. Great series demonstrating the D3s + 85G super speed ability incapable hands.

    Gentlemen, many thanks. I just sent those pix to her Dad, he's going to surprise her by putting them on her Facebook tonight. We'll see what she thinks. She's usually pretty unimpressed with everything.

    Corlan: Yes, proximity is certainly important. I'm so close to the endline of the court that at times I was actually too close. I moved back right against the wall, about 10 feet from the endline, and that was perfect for all the close in action. I really do love this D3s/85 1.4G combination.
