No Jive,My Ball!
The last one is truly extraordinay. Notwithstanding the ability of the left brain to analyse the plans, the eye -and right brain- keep getting fooled by the incredible 3D effect aided by the clever choice of framing.
edit: just seen at the one just above... just lovely.
I remember the "classic" one (from the same shoot?), still among my top ten dog shots of all times!
Matt, like the new bear shots... but you know that from your bear series #1 fan
On the road, into the night...
C...This Is An Amazing Image!!!! Superb Eye For Composition & Perfectly Processed! Love It!!!
Jorgan,Lloyd & Tim, Thanks Guys!
Tim, nice shot of Spring eh?! We got 3 inches today just south of Boston!
A couple more bears.
1. D3; 200mm f/2; 1/160 @ f/6.3; ISO 1600
2. D3; 200mm f/2; 1/80 @ f/6.3; ISO 1600
Trying to (vaguely) catch up a little bit here...
Hermann- love the whole minimalist interior design series. Ultra clean composition with subtle tones.
Tim- nice portrait. You're right, certainly no hint of spring here
The B&W close up is simply splendid.
(incidentally one of these images looking nicer printed than once displayed online)
Nice light on the road that day, so i decided to go for the backroads. Nighfall caught up, but the car trunk provided some help for the hanheld camera...
A wider view from farther away, in color this time (pretty small road, hey?):
A lil' bit earlier, before leaving the highway:
And a few miles down the road, (way) after sunset:
Sorry, no exotic models or spectacular buildings around there... ^^
Ok, one more from the streets:
"Hm, Nice Car, Already Payed Off?"
D 700, 24 mm/1.4 G @ f/3.2
Thanks for your interest and best regards!
Best regards - Hermann
Thanks Lloyd, Hermann
Was a quiet country drive, haven't seen a soul for a couple of hours. Guess the peloton shows up at day time
(narrow, narrow roads though)
Looks like the new Phantom... that's a luxury car. Having ad work in the '11 RR diary, got an invitation for some presentation of the Drophead (no, not "dropdead" ) Coupé. Interesting machine, though slightly a bit on the che, er, expensive side.
The shiny metallic blue finish there would've definitely helped driving around unnoticed. Seems the one on your photo was dual tone?
Thanks Steve, Jorgen
Hermann: not sure about the poor man's finish.
Didn't get the pricelist, but we can be confident when betting that if a custom option, the dual stainless steel would by itself pay for the combined photographic equipment of all this page's posters. Or close. If it's a mere catalog option, then it'll just pay for one of our regular cars.
Though it's considered vile talking about money at such reunions, you can overhear some people actually tackling the subject. Options pricing on the Phantom is simply appaling -if not terrifying- for the commoner (me).

Excellent shots all! This thread moves along nicely. Here are a few more
Those are terrific, Ryan. The one of the clouds is magical.
D3; 200mm f/2; 1/40s @ f/5.6; ISO 1600
D3; 200mm f/2; 1/250s @ f/2.8; ISO 280
D3; 200mm f/2; 1/250s @ f/5; ISO 1600
What a view!
Guess it could even be construed as "mystical", if shot over, say... Utah maybe?
Re the versions (well the two shots are still quite different beside the treatment), i keep wondering where my preference is. For now, the "portrait" B&W print is framed in the kitchen wall... have to print the blue landscape taken from farther away, and see.
(though i might try a different crop, but you already knew that )
