    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    I meant to provide some comments about all the fine images you folks have shared here before I posted another one of my own (because I know how much I appreciate your comments on my images)....but I'm just going to post one more, before I draw a firm line in the sand.

    I took this one on the way home from work tonight. Swung by the Alaska RR Station and the light on this totem pole was just right. This photo was taken with the AF-S 16-85mm lens. I'm trying to take as many photos with this lens as possible this week....just to be sure it's a keeper. This one only reinforces my view that...yes, it is.

    Thanks guys. I actually have a commissioned portrait coming up that is a multiplicity as well. Don't want to give anything away so I can surprise y'all.

    Thanks Corlan.....

    This is one of the smaller totem poles in Anchorage, probably about 12 feet tall. There are a pair of these totems standing across the road from the Alaska Railroad station, facing the station. Each is composed of only two figures (atop one another). Once I've taken some time to comment on other images here, I will post an image of the full size totems. There are quite a few totem poles in Anchorage, many in front of government buildings or office buildings owned by Alaska Native corporations. To my eyes, they are fascinating works of art, culture and story telling.

    Gary

    P.S. Couldn't resist.....here's the top of the second totem pole. I wish I knew the story behind these figures. (So much for a firm line in the sand).

    If it ran towards me, I would freeze and maybe wet the ground!
    The Photo is super!
    Rayyan: Thanks! The cuddly teddy bear was about 15-30' away. It varied. Not so cuddly mama was right there too. There was, also, always a bit of water between us. Worse comes to worse and the guide has some pepper spray. I don't think he's ever needed it.

    Every time i look at the bottom of that paw, i want to touch it.

    The light in the one just above is less dramatic, but might be technically more accomplished. What's the exposure time? Contrast though relative sharpness (tree, ducks) gives a strong sense of motion.

    In both instances the square format is a an interesting choice.
    So's the subtle processing, quite appropriate and conveying serenity.

    Really like both

    Until then, here are just a few from my photo outing and tests today. I wanted to take some more shots with the AF-S 16-85G lens, in order to make a decision on keeping it or not. I also wanted to try a few other AIS lenses. Here are two from the 16-85G, similar to those I took with the 55mm Micro Nikkor yesterday. Also, one with the AIS 135mm f2.8 lens.

    I've decided the AF-S 16-85 is a keeper....and I continue to be impressed with the performance of those AIS lenses on the D2X. Very happy indeed!

    Gary: Beautiful images. Great IQ. My wife is from Anchorage, originally. Some day, I'll make it further North then Ketchikan. I'm enjoying your posts and "lens tests". (insert thumbsup) I rented a Sigma
    12-24mm F4.5-5.6 EX DG ASP HSM that arrives tomorrow. I'll post some "test" results.

    Cheers, Matt.

    Don't know anything about them poles, but they sure look interesting. Looking forward for more info and visuals, Gary

    Another thing that i almost constantly notice in your photos is the great skies quality, color, clouds... something to do with the photographer probably, and also maybe the latitude?

    Nice paw indeed. Makes you longing for (or is it "itching for"? ) the same kind of flexibility for scratching you back, too. Then of course, no need for that when you have all those trunks around, hey? Excellent shot, again

    Matt, do these bears have their nails ( claws ? ) trimmed?
    One could make a back scratcher from those!!

    btw, do bears sneeze?

    This is an excellent series.

    Carlos, don't know your source but actually, "agglomeration" can be tracked back way before the Xth century (happen to know that for some complicated reason related to one of my first names - yours would work btw).. But our friend probably knew that considering his never less than impressive command of all things vocabulary

    It was when bears were all around, no need for special tours then, hey Matt?

    interesting word. Much appreciated sir.

    You've been seeing the best skies that Anchorage has to offer (infrequently).....this is a more typical Anchorage sky (unfortunately).

    I would love to live in a place like northern New Mexico or Arizona for light that is really special. Here in Alaska, because of the high latitude, we tend to have light in which the sun is either very high in the sky (hence the long days of summer) or extremely subdued light when the sun is very low on the horizon (the long dark nights and dimly lit days of winter).

    According to the Western Regional Climate Center stats.....on average, Anchorage only has 61 clear days per year. My own impression, having lived here for 25+ years, is that most of those are in the winter.

    Nice paw indeed. Makes you longing for (or is it "itching for"? ) the same kind of flexibility for scratching you back, too. Then of course, no need for that when you have all those trunks around, hey? Excellent shot, again
    Corlan: Thanks! Not allowed to bring anything more lethal into the Sanctuary.

    Matt, do these bears have their nails ( claws ? ) trimmed?
    One could make a back scratcher from those!!
    btw, do bears sneeze?
    This is an excellent series.
    Rayyan: Thank you, sir! No nail salons around there. Probably do each other's nails. Sneeze? I don't know.

    It was when bears were all around, no need for special tours then, hey Matt?

    Suspected Corlan was old, but going back to the Xth century!!

    Take care you two.
    Corlan/Carlos/Rayyan:
    Today's word is "transmogrification", or the verb - "transmogrify". Nothing here's applicable for it's use - like, my D700 transmogrified into a 5D Mark II.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    The nice thing with racing clients is that there's no discussion about corner sharpness or defraction As long as the sponsor logo is sharp and it looks like the car is fast as lightning, they are all smiles. So I experiment with longer shutter times. Since the car might break down or crash around the first corner, getting it right on the first lap is all important.

    And the good, old D80 is still doing the job, even if it's acquired a glossy finish in large areas and the electronics are taking detours on their own now and then.

    D80 with Tamron 17-50 @ 50mm, f/25 and 1/30s



    Oh, and at f/25, dust particles that I never heard about suddenly make their appearance. I guess a cleaning before each race would save me some pp time An ND filer would help, but with two cameras and the sun coming and going all the time, I would need a filter assistant. Maybe an ISO25 camera...

    Very cool images Miko! Could you tell us more about the mini studio setup you used to take these photos?
