    Lovely shots of what seems to be a fantastic bike. I had to make do with the stationary bike at the fitness center today. One hour of sheer suffering. I'll be able to walk again tomorrow

    Jørgen: Thanks! And riding a stationary bike, that's the real torture. I suffer vicariously with you!

Cold and raining at the moment. I'll do a ride on the trainer today!
    +1, Agreed good work on a cool looking bike. Never heard of Moots, just have to be satisfied with my old Trek Carbon Fiber I guess. Endless winter here too, back to the trainer.

    I know, but I'm not sorry to ride the trainer when I see something this:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H8qgjyqibwY

    Be sure to watch at 50 seconds into the vid. We rode in winds like that at IM Hawaii in 2001. It was the most frightened I've ever been on a bike.

    Ryan, nice picture of the Volvo, brings back memories of my first car, a P544 with the B18 engine. Just like what looks like a P545 in your photo except mine had the split windshield. Nice car, I was 18 it was red, tuned exhaust. They were really neat cars. Good job. Joe

    Steve: Thanks!
    Jorgen: +1! Those first two are great "finds". Surprising how much the "yellow shoes" pop out after you read the caption. The softer tone in this last one and the PJ quality are very cool.

    Cheers, Matt.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    1. "Bear food". This is late May. In the summer, it's higher then the bears and you're not allowed in to the estuary. Probably don't want you to become bear food.

    2. Not a good idea to go wandering in to the rain forest, either.

    3. Hard to find a bear without a mouthful of marsh grass

    Some wild. But could be tamed.

    This does look like the lair of the wild ones. I imagine that 19 days was hardly long enough to tame them all?

    Matt, Right. I know how he must feel!!

    That's one of the best Matt.

    Thought of a story: of Rayyan and the bear..
    as told by Kildaire..who just happened to be there
    Across the mountains, across the rivers
    where he had heard about the lair..of Matt's bear
    Hark..Ayesha calls. ****, it is to the salon for her hair
    Well then, some other time. The story of Matt's bear..
    I shall share.

    Rayyan: I really like the dynamic in the first photo. The slight crop reinforces it just right. Your pp and color, as always, is superb.

    Some very nice elements of composition, light, and focus in the second photo. I can esp. appreciate this one because I've taken many, many, photographs of my glass of ice water (late at night, testing lenses, cameras, auto focus, manual focus, settings, IQ, and so on)

    Cheers, Matt

    Rayyan: Lovely! Particularly like the composition, the quality of light, the texture and the colors - or let's say everything ...

    A few more bears. I'm having fun. I think that I'm getting the pp better (thanks Tim for the tip)

    Matt: I'm confident that pp is outstanding, but such is not only pp. More really great bear portraits. (All of them, but particularly like the second one.)
    BTW: Would you mind giving some hints on your modification in pp?

    Doug: Your pp on that one might seem a little bit borderline (regarding contrast and structure), but to my taste just that works very well here (subject and mood).

    Hermann, I know it's on the edge. I was going for more a dark chalk drawing look here. It's an image I took last year.

    I was also using a new tool. So, testing it out.

    Thanks Steve.

    Matt, you need to get him a hair brush so he can prep for shots. They are such beautiful bears.

    Matt, Hermann, Steve; A big thank you.

    Matt, The 1st and 2nd are to grizzly. Luv the middle one. Cuddly.
    Unless they are the same. In which case all 3.

    Steve, #1 and #2 is my kind of sedate photography.

    The entire set, taken as a whole, is

    Extreme sports...the one that should have a PG rating.

    Lovely sir.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Bears and bikes. Seems to be a theme! And a good one. Very nice shooting everyone. Makes me want to ditch my life and travel the world. Alas, the winter won't leave. Sixteen inches of wet snow on April 1. I'm beginning to think the fool is me for putting up with it.

    Tim, that's a splendid shot. The control of tones is enviable.

    Don't be too sure other places might be better. At least you are with family and friends where you are. And beautiful scenary.

    Regards.

    Thank you Rayyan. You are right of course. Still, every once in awhile the wanderlust returns. But, usually around the same time, the season changes and I find myself occupied with it in one way or another. Not the worst way to spend time. Maybe once my pre-retirement is over I'll get better at making the time for travel.

    Hermann: Thank you! It's complex and probably overdone. I'll send you something.

    Steve/Doug/Rayyan: Thanks, all. I'm pretty sure that the second and third are the same bear; not sure about the first. I offered a comb.

    Cheers, Matt
