    There's no "darkside" in Maine...is there?

    Nice one Steve. She doesn't seem all that impressed. I confess that I'm especially fond of conversions (like this one) that forgo the "grain" so often used. And, solid velvety blacks. Nice!

    Thank you Joe. I'd been wandering around D.C. that night for hours with my tripod and was about to pack it in when I was resting at the Washington Monument and looked up and thought, "hey, that would be a nice shot to finish on." D.C. is an exceptional place to shoot after dark. So much light, structure, color, action... there were many photogs out wandering just as I was and I had the opportunity to talk to many of them. Great fun and highly recommended.

    John: The more, I look at your flag photo, the more I like it. It doesn't have the "in your face" attitude that photos of the flag sometimes have. More narrative and more depth to it.

    The last set is also quite nice. Lots to photograph in DC. I especially like the composition in "Changing..".

    Steve, maybe she has been waiting in line for a long time. She sure seems p*ssed off at something. That is the subject.

    The capture is lovely.

    Your previous mention of your preference was noted. Posters, as you can see, will do as they feel is appropriate. And, it's also true with comments, as with quoted images, making them "over and over ...puhleeze!" Fine "comments, "but repetition dulls".

    Roy, Repetition in these cases show signs of admiration & respect. I understand your point but disagree with your tact. As for "wearing out your scrolling finger"...

    Awesome shots, Matt. Glad you found (or reprocessed) them. I love the look in the eye of the bottom bear in the lower image. Great catch.

    Lloyd, had responded to a similar post ( In, I think post #27xx ).

    I am with Lloyd and Steve in their responses to this gentleman's post.

    About the scrolling finger...

    Take care you all.

    +3: Plus it's much more joyful to take a second or even third look at great pictures than reading repetitive complaints like those.

    Since there's no risk, that they are repeated to death right now , two from the Munich underground:


    "In Between"


    D 700, AF-S 24/1.4G @ f/4.5 & ISO 2000



    "City Lights"


    D 700, AF-S 24/1.4G @ f4.5 & ISO 2000

    Hope you like it and thanks for your interest.

    Matt-Holy Smokes-these are sensational. I love the debris flying off the fur of that first shot and how you can see how tightly woven his coat is. You got a nice backdrop, too, with that solid green... makes the center of interest even more pronounced and accentuates the curves of the animals. Very nice.
    And the eye of the cub on the second one is what I like the most... it's cool to see these powerful, awesome creatures in a playful state - always revealing. That 500 is doing well for you. Well done.

    Hope you like it and thanks for your interest.

    John: Thanks a lot for taking the time to respond and particularly for pointing out some facets of the capture you like! The more so because it's fitting exactly to the look I was after here ... BTW: The remaining slight asymetries are on purpose and technical perfection wasn't intended at all - simply snaps of everyday life in the city.
    Best regards - Hermann

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Here's a little fun. Not art.

    At a 4th of July party, the new bride (married 2 days prior) decided to don her wedding dress and make a grand entrance (and a statement to all her redneck friends) to a field where the group was shooting skeet. She arrived on the riding mower, Budweiser in hand, and proceeded to break some clay pigeons in her gown.


    The Limo:



    Cruisin':



    Boom!:



    Best,
    Tim

    Rayyan/Steve/Lloyd/Hermann/John: Gentlemen, Thank you!
    These three bears were amazing. The third one was always nearby; but not into the same roughhousing as these two. I no longer have the 500mm. it was a 'bear' to handhold in a zodiac; but, the IQ was worth it. I've got more folders to go through.

    Cheers, Matt

    Hermann: Brilliant! Single-point perspectives work well. Subtle blues in the first and unreal blues in the second. Very understated light fixtures in that one, too.

    Cheers, Matt.

    Matt: Thanks a lot, much appreciated - and as usual you found the right words, understated, even so!
    Best regards - Hermann
