    But, said Ayesha, love of my life isn't the Iphone for talking..




    Yes, I said. It is for talking..for people who have nothing better to do.
    Now get them Cherry blossoms girl!!
    Great photos Rayyan. Love the shadows in the first, and the second is magic and mysterious at once. Looking forward to the Cherry blossom shots!

    Great shots, Steve. They really have a strong "club feel" to them.

    Doug: Great warm tone! Nice composition with the sweep of the river and the foreground rocks.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Folks, a lovely lovely set of images you are treating me too. I shall do injustice
    if I do not comment on them individually.

    I have been talking to stones. Yes, an old habit of mine. They tell me secrets.

    Especially the gentle, aphrodite type of stones. I was all ears and more..yes much more!! You would not believe what this one had to tell me.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    haha Steve, nice job too, forgot to add that.

    Matt, thanks, you "get" the shot. That's what I see too. I love the way the wet rocks with smooth water flowing over show their color, coming to a crest with the surface rocks in corner.

    Last night, I got side tracked with some things, so not much processing. One from D3X/16-35vr, I had to shrink it to get it to load due to size. Processed changing some lighting emphasis, and color enhancement of course. I enhanced the trees on left and right forground, I darkened place next to forground left trees, brightened tree base in middle While stream brightened with tree on left. These things change the image, adding depth, and visual appeal.

    Steve, Thanks pal. I didn't travel anywhere. My son and his wife were there
    and sending me pics. Gave them some advice on places to go and the like.

    Lloyd, my son's pics sir. I have them, but for another section. Non-Nikon.

    Matt, West coast might be a stretch, but I would have at least gone down to Boston. Me and Ayesha stayed home..conjugal bliss.

    Hermann, really appreciate getting back on the forum. But not from travel.


    Folks, my sincere thanks to you all.

    Sometimes, I wonder if I only need one lens, an 85mm on DX or 135mm on FX.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Today's post is particulararly for Lloyd, Steve and maybe some other cycling buddies here. Just now it's important "making" miles in preparation for the season!

    "Handcrafted in Steamboat Springs, CO" for sure also will be great for the stages of TdF in the Alps and Pyrenees.

    (BTW: Pictures captured in a rush on today's practice lap, so sorry for the possibly shaky hands )


    All with D 700, 35 mm/1.4G












    Best regards - Hermann

    Wow! Hermann, great shots (love the OOF rendering of that 35/1.4), and I'm most impressed by your choice of bicycle!! I'm a fan of Moots myself. I love titanium bikes (I have two Lightspeed full Ti bikes, a Tuscany and Blade), and have been coveting my friend's Moots mountain bike. Thanks for making me wish I could get out for a ride today. Cold and raining at the moment. I'll do a ride on the trainer today!

    Sometimes, I wonder if I only need one lens, an 85mm on DX or 135mm on FX.

    D300 with 85mm f/1.8 @ f/5.0

    This is a flat-out terrific image, Jorgen. LOVE the b/w conversion here. It really adds a timeless quality. And I hear you on that focal length choice. I love my 85 on FX, but I love it more on the DX.

    And the hits just keep on coming! Another fine set, Ryan. I especially like the flower, the Volvo and the Ducati.

    Lloyd: Congrats on your Litespeeds as well!! Ti is simply a classic. Thankfully for me weather is beautiful this week, as you can see on the pictures. So "making" some more miles tomorrow hopefully ...

    (And BTW: The 35 is really nice, but the 35, the 24 and the D 700 in the backpack for the shots wasn't that comfortable )

    Thanks Hermann. As for bikes, my first love is really my Cervelo Soloist Carbon. Not nearly as comfortable to ride, but man, I love how that thing just goes!

    I hear you on carrying the camera gear. When I ride, it's just the iPhone for photography!

    Lloyd: Again as for the bikes and slightly OT : When I really go for the TdF stages in the Alps and Pyrenees my choice is aluminum, and then again "Principia" and "Canyon" ... But that are the workhorses, light and bulletproof! Then again that Cervelo is a beauty and a strong bike as well!

    Thanks a lot Lloyd. I learned another thing while working on that photo: After trying out Aperture, LR and C1, I realize that PS is the tool that gives me the results I'm looking for. It's elaborate and time consuming like a manual focus lens, but I retain control over every bit of the photo.
