    Matt, lovely set. However, I prefer the BW. The sense of motion. The street
    happenings and the excellent use of BW all add up to make it my choice.

    D2X and AF-S 16-85G lens.......one of these days, I'll have to put an AIS lens back on the D2X.
    Gorgeous shot, of a striking building, Gary.

    It's black fly season here and makes being out in the fresh-cut grass a real adventure. These two were in their own little world however. Not sure how well they get along, I sensed some tension.

    Thanks Lloyd! The real challenge was hand-holding the thing while being chewed by the flies. Lucky to escape alive.

    Damn! I'd consider changing countries for one of those! (As long as someone else paid the fuel and maintenance for me! )

    +1 from me, Rayyan. Gorgeous, warm color. Love your processing!

    Ok. I'll spill. She's SUPER animated (in a cute, but to me annoying, way), and she's ALWAYS late for everything... not just a little late either. I've had to meet her for shoots, etc., a number of times, and she's never been less than 45 minutes late. For this shoot, she was and hour and twenty minutes late!! Always apologizes, and always has lots of excuses. This time I told her never again... 15 minutes late, and I'm gone! I'm good friends with her husband.. great guy... and he tells me she's ALWAYS late for everything. Drives him crazy too.

    Funny story, but is it any wonder with the 3 P's of female preparedness. Primping, pruning and preening. Better duck on that last statement. I can already hear the incoming.

    Thanks Rayyan. Very much appreciated.

    Gratefully, she was happy with them. She can be pretty particular, so I was relieved.

    I agree about the black. She showed up in the lavender dress, and I was soft on it right away.

    Nice one, Matt

    Same goes for the passing tram (?) in B&W -with the extra original approach.

    Like them all Tim, but for some reason this one "talks to me", in a nostalgic way.
    Cool ant/ladybug shot, too. Definitely some tension there...

    Just a couple of hundred meters left to the party. Time to start dancing!

    D300 with 70-300 ED @ 155mm and f/7.1

    Dancing colors. Beautiful.

    I'll defer to the specialist (Matt) appreciation here: framing and blending are both excellent indeed.

    Lens look pretty ok btw. What was the FL here?
    Any PC after the fact?

    LOL. Wow... good thing you weren't there during the busy time!
    Rayyan: Ditto. Siesta time it is! Crowds like that make me nervous. The OOF foreground intensifies it.

    Cheers, Matt.

    Jorgen: Nice angle. I've had numerous Saabs (last one was a 9000 Turbo in 92 or 93). The brochures always had the jets in the front, as if the cars evolved from the jets. I wonder if they stopped when GM owned them? Their very elegantly stylish jet fighters are being bought by a lot of country's these days. Generally places we don't send billions to. Go figure?

    Lloyd: Really excellent portraits! I have to ask...why does your neighbor need these glamorous photos? BTW: I like the first B & W one; and, is there any significance to the background in the last one?

    Same goes for the passing tram (?) in B&W -with the extra original approach.
    ...
    I'll defer to the specialist (Matt) appreciation here: framing and blending are both excellent indeed.
    Lens look pretty ok btw. What was the FL here?
    Any PC after the fact?...
    Corlan: Thanks! Mostly working, but the ships are right out the office door. It's a bus. No trams in this neighborhood. Right now, my "specialty" is inexpensive apartments.

    Cheers, Matt

    The first Saab, the 92001, was indeed inspired by airplane design, since the company was started in 1937 specifically to manufacture fighter planes for the Swedish air force to preserve Sweden's neutrality.

    Now, they are two different companies, and although none of them are hugely successful, the fighter jets have, as you mention, sold to several countries for a number of good reasons. I had the pleasure of working closely with representatives of the Swedish Air Force while taking these photos, and they have a very professional attitude to this project.

    Here's the 92001 (not my photo):



    Here here are two of the latest model, the two seat family version

    D80 with 80-200 AF-S @ 80mm and f/2.8

    I don't care what gear I have.

    Great, as usual.
