    Re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Jim: Lovely shot across from your house. I'm impressed by the performance of a couple of the Sigma lenses, and that one is on the list.

    Bob: The shot of Tokyo is impressive! I've never seen it so clear.

    Gary: Those shots of the old locomotives are really nice. I'm sad to see them go too... end of an era I miss.

    Ben: That shot is priceless. What a cutie!

    Antonio: Wonderful work. Not my forte for sure, although I just spent two weeks doing some of that type of work for a client. I didn't have a T/S lens, and sure wish I had. I shot most of it with either the 24-70/2.8, or the 14-14/2.8, and then spent hours in post processing straightening lines. Yuck.

    Fotom: That "blue hour" shot is stunning.

    Lazy day.

    Shot with my D300 and 60/2,8 Macro long time ago.

    Edit: I believed... but was wrong.

    Thank you very much, actually this shot is one out of a series of 5 I believe, that I took for a panorama shot. Unfortunately PS Elements doesn't do a great job when it comes to stitching - so this has to wait until I am back at home in 2 weeks.

    Nor had I until they started dismantling these locomotives. It does look like it could be a V16 diesel. I know it's a "diesel-electric" locomotive. I'll ask a friend of mine who is very familiar with the ARR locomotives. He told me that the first digit in the ARR naming convention indicates approximate horsepower of the engine. So the 1802 and 1806 locomotives have approximately 1,000 hp. The newest locomotives in the Alaska Railroad "fleet" are approximately 4,000 hp. Here's one of them. A VERY impressive beast!

    Last couple "big" cameras I've owned (D700, K5) have mostly collected dust. Odds are that this one will be no different. Even my E-M5 was sold in favor of an E-PM2 for the size/weight savings. However I had an itch to try again, and since I made a resolution not to buy any new cameras in 2013, it was now or wait a full year...

    Amin, I find the secret with bigger cameras is finding a way of carrying them where they become convenient. Being a old medium-format shooter for a long time for documentary like stuff, the thing was to have the camera available. How this is done is sort of personal--everybody caries their stuff differently--but it was really key in getting work done.

    So, how many other cameras do you "have" to buy before your resolution kicks in? (Are you just betting you have a month before your wife sees the credit card bill and takes the card away from you for a year?)

    fotom: Love the shots of your kids! (Your other works as well, btw.)

    Gary: That old locomotive is a thing of beauty, regardless of the medium of capture. I'm glad you're preserving them in images... too bad they're being dismantled.

    Ben: Wonderful colors and shapes. Nature never ceases to amaze.

    Rayyan: Speaking of beautiful things... The ever-lovely Ayesha certainly qualifies. Wonderful image.

    Amin: Looking forward to more from you D600. Priceless image.

    Re: Fun with Nikon Images

    A quick explanation. I was shooting stranger portraits...stopping random people and asking to take their picture... when I saw three young women coming my direction. When they got close, I asked the two blondes (first image) if I could shoot them. I took a couple shots, showed them what I got (I also always offer to send them a copy), said thanks. While I was fiddling with my camera they all started to walk away. I called out to the redhead, and said that I wanted to shoot her too. She was shocked... I'm sure she thought I only considered the blondes worthy, and wouldn't care about shooting her... but she stopped and said ok. She was shy, and a little stiff at first, but opened up after a couple of shots, so I got this. Beautiful young woman, and my favorite shot of the day!

    (Yes, I'm a sucker for redheads, but I come by it honestly... one gave birth to me, and I married another. )

    Both with the D3s, 50/1.4G combo:

    Lloyd, you do not need give us excuses my friend.
    These are wonderful shots. And you seem to be more than confident nowadays, with pretty strangers...hmmm.

    Lloyd, I would like to thank you and all my friends who posted their ' like ' on
    my post.

    I am grateful to you all.

    You welcome sir.
    The Fuji is in the States right now, having traveled thru Canada. Shall return
    to Canada after 2 weeks. Even when back home, I have a feeling it won't be mine!

    Best to Mimi and the little one.

    p.s the ME is with my son-in-law. Wants to see what the fuss with Leica is all about.
    I do have the RX100 and my M8s and the D700 right now.

    Another "Street Portrait". I didn't ask this dapper young man first, just grabbed him with a 300mm lens.

    D3s, 300/2.8 @ f2.8:

    Great shot, Lloyd!

    The 300/2,8 has a very nice bokeh! Is it the version with VR?

    Thanks. No, pre VR version. It was too bright out for VR anyway. That said, I'd love to have the new one.

    I believe with a D800 a 300/2,8VR would be better. But the D3s is still working fine with it, so why change?

    My longest lens on my D3s ever was my 70-200/2,8VR. Now sometimes I miss 300mm. Therefor I will get me a D300s as an extender and I have my 300mm with the 70-200 again...

    Need it for stuff like that:

    ILA 2010 with D300 and Sigma 70-200/2,8. The AF was... and I missed a lot of pictures.

    In 2012 I had the D3s and the D3x with the Nikon 70-200/2,8 but sometimes was not close enough for the pictures I wanted.

    Edit: For that Top Gun style "fly by" picture I needed three turns of waiting. Any time I had clear view a bus stopped in front of me and I couldn´t take that picture. Last round I was successful. Anyway I was the only guy away from the runway to get a picture like that. all others had been somewhere close...
