    Analog extraordinaire, Steve!

    All are just great. All.
    #3 is technically impressive, but the last one might stand out as really special.

    No doubt the subjects will love them. Prints wil be gorgeous!

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Steve: Great set with #4 a real standout in my mind. The sort of counter-intuitive "soft focus" approach for the macho guy works really well.

    Corlan: Nice treatments on both your shots of our animal friends. Especially nice color on the birdy but love the way the white tufts glow in B&W.

    Best,
    Tim

    Matt

    Great bear photos as always. I prefer the second for a number of reasons but most importantly is the softer or less contrasty rendering which is much more indicative of the overcast natural light you had. The first one is just a tad too harsh for my taste. The power of subtlety is all too often abandoned, IMHO.

    Anyway well done. Where are these furry buddies of your's located btw?

    For some reason I'm conjuring up a scene with a NoctiPot and AISKettle. One says "black". The other one throws stones. At glass, of course. No house though. But an architect.




    "one body, one lens", eh?

    Matt, it has been a very long time since I saw a bear ( any variety ) in real life!!

    What color ' brownish ' bears should look like..I don't know.

    The first image though is what I would imagine a bear to be.

    Besides I like a bit of contrast.

    That's an excellent image too!!

    Steve: Cool set!
    IMHO: 1. Nicely framed; the two hands support the face, lead the eye, and expand the photo 2. the opposite of #1; the head seems bodyless, even though you can see the torso; appears to float; my least favorite. 3. Nice detail and grain; head on but his looking down adds interest...what's he looking at? 4. Album cover; spiritual. 5. Good pose, focus and pp; slightly skeptical look not quite right? 6. Excellent; strong, confident lip curl..."judge me" 7. Perfect composition; nice balance with body positions and expressions; pp, just right; comfortable.

    Rob: Thanks for commenting. Easy to get there. Most of the way there's only one road. Drive North, turn left at Edmonton, drive West until the road ends at the Pacific Ocean (Prince Rupert), catch a seaplane for a 1/2 hour flight NE to the Khutzeymateen Grizzly Bear Sanctuary.

    Rayyan: Thank you, sir!

    One "preference" for each. Grizzlies come in a lot of different shades of brown, which vary with the lighting. The second photo does seem more natural to me. Although, it might be a bit red?

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Steve, Rayyan, Tim, Hermann, Matt... thank you all for the kind words. Much appreciated.

    (though the parakeet is nice, like you guys the strong tonal b&w is a favorite - and the shot is certainly trickier to get)


    Matt: re the bears versions, i'm not sure. First off the greens look a bit odd to me, unlike your usual treatments in this series (normally i really like them, i mean since you got rid of the slight magenta cast on some...). But you were there, and it might very well be just different kinda light / grass. Otherwise, i like the more subtle bear hair treatment of #2, but global contrast wise it's a bit dull and in that regard i understand Rayyan's preference. Strictly as they are, i'd bet #1 would print nicer for the same reasons. In the end, i'll go for a mix - i know, i know, this is helpful

    Matt, thanks for the Honest Critique. # 2 is my buddy Peter & he was Adamant about not having his picture taken! No excuses on the Bodyless Man! # 3 is my friend Mark, ho was reading the Herald, with "Whitey" on the Cover. I was Screaming at him to Look Up & he wouldn't. I said , "i Promise I Wont Blow Your Cover & Publish This!" Maybe He's Part Of Whitey's Winter Hill Gang! Anyway, i was just testing out the F6 for the first time at work & was basically Harassing my felloy co-worker's! Thanks Amigo!

    Matt: My vote for # 2 (particularly regarding the fur and the ground), although I second Corlan's remark about the greens here, that might be a little bit off (but less so in # 2 again).

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Its summer vacations here.

    My grand kids have moved in with us. Mariam, five and a half, insists to sleep with me.

    Read me a story, she said this evening. So I read.

    Halfway through the story she fell asleep.

    I took a picture. Adventure for her. Something priceless for me.

    An evening out on the Palouse area of Eastern Washington State. Who says that a 200-400 VR isn't a landscape lens?

    D3x, 200-400VR @ 400mm 1/60 f4.

    Matt: re the bears versions, i'm not sure. First off the greens look a bit odd to me, unlike your usual treatments in this series (normally i really like them, i mean since you got rid of the slight magenta cast on some...). But you were there, and it might very well be just different kinda light / grass. Otherwise, i like the more subtle bear hair treatment of #2, but global contrast wise it's a bit dull and in that regard i understand Rayyan's preference. Strictly as they are, i'd bet #1 would print nicer for the same reasons. In the end, i'll go for a mix - i know, i know, this is helpful
    Corlan: You da man! It's very helpfull (and, I just remembered your other email! My bad).

    Cheers, Matt

I said , "i Promise I Wont Blow Your Cover & Publish This!" Maybe He's Part Of Whitey's Winter Hill Gang! Anyway, i was just testing out the F6 for the first time at work & was basically Harassing my felloy co-worker's! Thanks Amigo!
    Steve: You're welcome. Sometimes, I get into it. New F6? Beautiful "testing out".

    Hermann: Thanks. I'm going to have to figure out how to get consistent color across a series of photographs? Get one, or two, right and use them as "control" photos side by side with the one that i'm processing?

    Cheers, Matt

    And that, my dear friend, is possibly the best compliment you can get...
    Rayyan: My 'french' speaker says "no regrets", "don't regret anything"? Makes sense, esp. per Corlan's comment. I'll also +1 Steve.

    I took a picture. Adventure for her. Something priceless for me.

    Rayyan: Wonderful composition and tone. Nothing to add to the above.

    Matt,

    That shot was taken July 9th 2010 according to the Exif. It's from Steptoe Butte.

    Everything out there is running about a month late this year. I'm off out there again in two weeks time for trip #2 this year. I may go back later in August as a colleague of mine has a farm out there and will be harvesting. I just noticed that I actually took this with my 200-400 VR & D3x, not the 600mm.
