    Re: Fun with Nikon Images

    The weather was a quite dry and it affected for most, but not all of the tulips for the last week of Floriade 2013 in Canberra, Australia.





    D300s, PC-Micro 85mm/2.8D + TC14E-II, [email protected], +1 Ev, about 7° tilt with balanced flash 1:1.

    I've just started learning more about this lens as I haven't used it much since I bought it during (our) last Winter. Regards,

    Gary.

    Guy: Do you use a pano head that insures rotating around the nodal point, or just wing it? I would like to try a pano, but do not have a special head. Thanks

    Dave, there are so many things I love about your image, especially when enlarged. Various textures are everywhere...the dramatic puffy white clouds, the sand, the footprints, the fence, the rounded mounds of sand covered earth and they all are superbly exposed. This is not an easy task based on the wide exposure latitude of the scene. Finally there's the expansiveness of the scene (nature) with the two individuals in the distance illustrating how relatively small we are compared to all of mother nature. Very nicely done!

    Evening!

    Nice description Dave, it's good to read what attracts people to an image. Gurtch, for me, I love the composition but I'm uneasy with the sky for some reason, to my eye it's so striking it takes me away from the rest of the image, I hope that makes sense!

    Anyway, here's a little black and white from the other day.

    Morning

    We had -9 degrees last night so woke to the first heavy frost of the season. Here's a quick grab from the side of the road as I was off doing other things, I think a frosty morning and the Zeiss 135 f2 are made for each other!

    Beautiful shot Hulyss but why on earth do girls pierce their mouths like that?! God I sound old but seriously, she's beautiful and then has a ball sticking out of her lip, I honestly don't get it! Can you tell her to take it out please, thanks!

    I understand you Mat

    But I tend to never interfere with the choices of the girls I shoot, simply because it is part of her personality, experience and comfort zone.

    I know sometimes it can be disturbing or shocking (depend on what) but the trust come from the fact I accept those little things. I sometimes test it too, it is part of the experiment even though I'm kinda old school myself.

    I keep the girls as they are and they give me what I want. This is the most important !

    Re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Thank you guys for the kind words You know, I don't do that much for this photos, the subjects shine by themselves

    About this post, someone asked me what sort of mushrooms it is :

    Quote Originally Posted by Hulyss Bowman View Post

    = Food for today

    And here is the answer. We can find those mushrooms in northern Europe (where I'm from) as well as North America.

    The big one, white and Brown, Is Boletus edulis. In America you might know him as Cep or Penny Bun. This is a very tasty and seeked mushroom for a wild variety of cooking. I prefer the young ones and almost tend to only use the cap on old ones. It could be a sort of waste but, when cooking it, old Ceps tend to be gluey and I do not like that. You can also eat it fresh, without cooking. Such mushrooms should not be washed, just brushed. The most common place to find it is forests of Fagus sylvatica mixed with Picea abies and Abies alba.

    The Yellow one is Cantharellus cibarius, aka golden chanterelle. You might find it in north US too. Also, a delicious mushroom with slight peach flavour and odour with a very firm flesh. Once brushed (I use an old Lens Pen) it can go direct for cooking. You can find it in the same place as the Ceps but they like acidity so always look around blueberry soils.

    The above recipe is quite simple. You need Ceps, Golden Chanterelle, flat beans, Red kuri squash, garlic, shallot and a fresh lamb's liver.

    Work on the Red kuri squash (or pumpkin), and cut it in thin quarters. Put that in hot water for 15 minutes with two small spoon of sea salt. Do exactly the same with flat beans but put some olive oil (generous) in the water.

    Cut the shallots and garlic, very thin and throw it in the pan with some butter mixed with olive oil (you can also use duck fat). Once golden, had the mushrooms (you can cut them but I only cut the Ceps).

    In the same time, roast the Lamb's liver with some butter. You might had some spices of your choice, I personally use paprika.

    Reserve the mushrooms and liver.

    After 15 minutes of cooking, take off the beans and the squash and put them in very cold water (it fix the colour as well as the texture).

    Now its time to set up the plate as you like. Put the plate in the furnace for one minute, grill position and you are ready for the dinner.

    A simple 5$ Bordeaux or Californian equivalent will do the job

    Hope you enjoyed the read, as it is not really photo orientated but all is relative !

    I love to get a nice curvey road with the mountains and a little color. Road from Clingman's Dome back down to Newfound Gap, GSMNP. One of my favorite stretches of road on the Earth. Ok, the Earth I have seen. lol. ok, the color was past it's prime here, but it's still ok.
