Thank You Lloyd!
(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...)
I perfectly remember the first, more extensive set -these will complement them nicely. And this says a lot.
Thanks a lot Corlan!
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
The sufferings we have to live with
Jorgen, Thank You! Beautiful Lady, Shot & Story!
Italian food and Italian cars. Here's a little something for Alfisti
D300 with 80-200 AF-S @ 200mm and f/6.3
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

Wife and I were lucky to meet and interview the incomparable Shontelle today. She is such a wonderful lady to talk to, such a kind spirit!
Superb Image Vlad!
(well, neither am i)
Vlad: +2. Absolutely Splendid, and really great silver tones!
TV studio lighting?
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.
Steve/Lloyd/Cinema/Corlan/Vlad/Rayyan/Jorgen: All, nicely done!
Steve: I agree with Rayyan. The yoga photos are superlative.
"Bit cold for the tulips" and "Looking Up".

Matt, the framing, color & iq are Delicious! Love # 2!
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
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.
D80 with 80-200 AF-S @ 200mm, f/6.3 and 1/125s
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.
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.
I apologize, I'll catch up tomorrow. A quick post, and then to bed. We have an early neighborhood "Disaster Preparedness" meeting tomorrow (earthquakes).

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
D3s, 70-300 VR:
Actually, the forecast of the coming week is pretty encouraging. Temps in the upper 60s for the most part.
"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.
Hi all...been running around a bit with little time for posting. Here is an image from last week...

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.
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.
