    Gary: Thanks! I was just walking by the shipyard at lunch. There's a public overlook at the street end. Not so close, either; it was a 300mm lens.

    The processing started life as a "Lightroom Preset" that I downloaded. I mix to "taste". If anybody wants it ... email me at [email protected] and I'll send it along.
    (Corlan knows that unusual pp won't make a bad photo any better; but, it could reinforce the photographer's intent. Did I put words in your mouth?)

    Gary: It's the June issue. A copy is 8" from my left hand. Your's is probably winding it's way North (the boat leaves here weekly ).

    Cheers, Matt

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    I'm always prone to excessive behavior! Here's an example. Set aside whether this is a "good photo", or not. Does the second pp make the truck seem older and more abandoned? Does it push the image back in time? Does it enhance the photo in any substantive way, or, is it just a different flavor?

    D7000; AF-S NIKKOR 24-120mm f/4G ED VR; 60mm; 1/125s @ f/4; ISO 100




    Cheers, Matt

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Heard Rayyan over my shoulder: "Corlan my friend, why do you keep shooting with those plastic AF lenses when you got these beautiful sturdy Zeiss glass waiting in your bag?"
    "Sure, but it's not always convenient and..."
    "No excuses. Just use them a little more, you'll see. So good for portraits."
    "If you say so..."


    "Then, i have a lot of processing tricks and secrets for you."
    "Not now, Rayyan, thanks. One thing at a time for my limited brain cells. I'll concentrate on the light and let see how the camera plays..."


    D3X - Zeiss 50M - f5.6 - no processing AWB no color temp no filters - just basic RAW profile in ACR/LR






    "See?"

    Matt, Both Retro With Yes, "Different Flavors"! Leaning Towards The Second Image. I Think It Would Pop Nicely In A White & Black Matt & a Subdued Reddish Frame.

    Steve, very interesting info. I never knew that Uncle Ben would be producing rice in Arizona!

    I have been there a few times to visit a small hospital, a branch of he one in MN., but nobody told me about this.

    Thank you very much.

    Matt, simple answer to the questions posed..For me, Yes. Ina big way.
    This is history. Worth recording, before nature takes it toll completely.

    Beautifully done.

    I think it does just that, Matt. It does make the truck seem older, more weather/abandoned to the elements, etc. In fact, it looks to my eye more real than the first version, in which the red looks almost painted on the truck.

    +1 from me, Corlan. These are exceptional. The color is so spot on, and the separation from the background is amazing. Almost 3D. Yes, Rayyan is right about those Zeiss lenses for sure. Dude knows his glass.

    +1 more! Those are some of the finest casual portrait images I have seen Corlan....beautiful work! The lighting is also wonderful....ambient light or something extra?

    Is that the Zeiss 50/1.4 ZF.2 lens? If so, I will have to put it on my wish list. I'm sure the D3X helps as well....but it is out of my range, unfortunately.

    Matt, the entire set, and this is just a representation, is dizzingly beautiful.
    I love the relatively subdued neon. Not the garish screams of that place in Nevada!!

    The D7000 + Sigma seem to be holding their own.

    Many thanks to you all. I'm humbled.

    Gary this is the ZF 50/2 Macro, my favorite among the ZF glasses. IMHO a (significant) notch better than its 1.4 couterpart.
    We've talked about this on this board quite a few times, not everyone agrees (but i sure do ). As for the 50/2, i did a little presentation on post #20 of the following thread http://forum.getdpi.com/forum/showthread.php?t=18723.

    AFA light is concerned, it's here "mostly ambient", meaning just a couple of tricks using furniture or what was available around used as reflectors/screens to shape light to my tastes.

    Thanks again for your kind words.

    Matt, you got me confused i thought one doesn't chase but follows the white rabbit. Then, blue or red pill, your choice.



    Seriously, i like this set vey much. Very smooth.
    Subdued neons, as Rayyan put it, are nice.
    A slight preference for the first two, #1 for focused composition and understated shades of grey, #2 for the clever color zoning in PP. Works extremely well here.

    Really love it!

    Nice set, Matt. I love the color (and for neon, these seem pleasingly subtle), but the b/w image really stand out to me.

    Yes indeed, +1 from me. Impressive DOF, especially for f4, and the bokeh is buttery smooth. Nice.

    The D7000 + Sigma seem to be holding their own.
    Rayyan: Thank you, sir! I thought about you, and hoped the neon wouldn't offend. It's really nicely muted neon, isn't it?
