    (and agree on the second version -even though the incredible detail of the original color one is lost in the process. But again, detail is not what photography's all about...)

    +1. And not only beautiful, but subtle and meaningful.

    Brilliant indeed.
    I perfectly remember the first, more extensive set -these will complement them nicely. And this says a lot.

    Busy times these. I use my bed at home mostly as storage for the bags I keep packing and unpacking.

    Steve, your yoga photos are top

    The pizza season has started again... or was that the racing season? I'll try to find one of those race photos for you. In the meantime, this pizza photo will have to do

    D80 with Tamron 17-50 @ 50mm and f/2.8



    Unfortunately, the young lady lost her ride home the next day, so I kind of had to offer her a lift the 200 kilometers, usually less than 3 hours. But there was a rainstorm, so it took five, and we had to stop for dinner

    Italian food and Italian cars. Here's a little something for Alfisti

    I think dinner today will have to be at the local Trattoria

    Or at the Bierstube

    D300 with Nikkor 300mm f/4 @ f/6.3

    Nice! I especially like the the liberal application of duct tape on that Mercedes!

    If you can't fix it with duct tape, it can't be fixed!

    + 1, Agree.

    Its my believe the world is now held together with duct tape and photoshop. Perhaps Adobe should issue a fresh new roll of tape with each new upgrade to PS.

    Thanks all!!

    I actually do think those were TV lights, this was their media room at Universal Mowtown and they had them there permanently.

    Some sort of 110V continuous Tungsten lighting though umbrellas. Great eye, Corlan.

    Was thinking initially Dedolights or alike, but the soft, graduated transition was a question mark. Thanks for clueing me in about the shoot through umbrellas.
    Outstanding light quality (and photo, obviously )

    Matt, with a lushy, exotic background and a somehow more agressive PP, #1 could be one of Rayyan's collection...

    #2: can't say if it's daring on purpose or accidental. I'll bet for the former

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Rayyan, you have spent so much money on cameras and lenses, screamed my wife.

    What could it be, I thought. Not PMS, not for a grandmother.

    Even with all these cameras and lenses your photos are crap. Over contrasty, over saturated and over sharpened, she added. And meaningless, she woofed.


    Why can't you take pretty pictures like the others. Ones we can hang on our walls.


    It clashes, she continued, with our decor. And our color scheme, screaming.

    But dear, I said softly, that is how I see. They just comes out that way.

    Maybe a new camera might help, I suggested very politely.

    Considering the angle, not sure how you achieve this. Yup, impressive.

    Thanks, Corlan. It's a little bit luck, lots of practice and knowing the rules. Looking at thousands of photos captured by the real top motorsports photographers helps too, as does a few hours every week at the gym.

    This one was extreme, due to the angle, the long shutter speed vs. the focal length and the fact that the cars came out from behind an obstruction just a fraction of a second before. This guy, Jack Lemward, is faster than the others, so he jumps further, giving me a tenth of a second or so extra, which is very helpful.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Ok then....my first image here on the Nikon thread.

    I ordered a very nice D2X from KEH (primarily to use with my Nikkor AIS primes) and it arrived here in Alaska this morning. I stopped by the only decent camera store in Anchorage (Stewart's, which has been in business since before the 1964 earthquake) during my lunch break to check out the various options for a do-it-all walk around AF lens (since I don't own any Nikon AF lenses) and came out with a 16-85G (thanks for the recommendation Jorgen!). It was the right lens at the right price.

    Here is one of my first images with the camera, taken along the Alaska Railroad yards (my frequent lunch hour stomping ground). I'm really looking forward to using the D2X with my Nikkor manual focus lenses and sharing a few images here in the months to come. I will be spending a good part of this weekend getting familiar with the camera and seeing how those AIS lenses perform.

    This reminds me of a conversation between husband and wife I overheard in a fly fishing store recently.

    Wife: "You have so many fly rods already—how many fly rods do you need?"

    Husband: "Just one more."

    Best,

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    So... I posted some pix of flowers and said we had a least a promise of Spring. Well, apparently I was mistaken! This is was greeted us this morning

    Actually, the forecast of the coming week is pretty encouraging. Temps in the upper 60s for the most part.

    Even with all these cameras and lenses your photos are crap. Over contrasty, over saturated and over sharpened, she added. And meaningless, she woofed.

    Why can't you take pretty pictures like the others. Ones we can hang on our walls.

    It clashes, she continued, with our decor. And our color scheme, screaming.

    But dear, I said softly, that is how I see. They just comes out that way.

    Maybe a new camera might help, I suggested very politely.
    Say it ain't so! Love your shots! (So did it help? Are you getting the new camera? )

It was the right lens at the right price.

    Here is one of my first images with the camera, taken along the Alaska Railroad yards (my frequent lunch hour stomping ground). I'm really looking forward to using the D2X with my Nikkor manual focus lenses and sharing a few images here in the months to come. I will be spending a good part of this weekend getting familiar with the camera and seeing how those AIS lenses perform.

    Welcome to the thread Gary. I've been enjoying your MF film stuff for a long time. Congrats on the new (to you) camera and the lens. Nice shot here, and I'm looking forward to more.

    That cracks me up!!! My brother is a fanatical fly fisherman (and an Orvis Endorsed Guide... he was recently selected by Orvis as the "Trout Bum of the Week.) I'm pretty sure his wife lost count of how many fly rods he has years ago. Just one more is NEVER enough. The analogy is well taken, however.

    Here's the story Lloyd. I have just had a tooth extraction. The mouth is still
    numb.
    I had tried to save the tooth.
    But listening to her on and on...I went into the dentist.
    Now I don't have to answer her for sometime. Maybe prolong it for days!!

    New camera! Are you serious. I am hiding what I have.

    Thanks Lloyd.

    Lloyd, the flower pix were lovely. But I didn't know you had gone North for the winter!

    Anyways, these are simply lovely. The first shot is gorgeous. The snow really is adding a charm of it own to the trees.

    The car cleaning should be a lovely bonus. Keep you warm.

    Excellent pal.
