    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Meet Monica, Mimi's friend and work colleague. This shot is from last Saturday, just minutes after she finished "The Spartan Race", where she ran 8 miles through the hills of the Olympic XC skiing venue at Soldier Hollow.



    Along the way, among other things (I only got shots of a few of the obstacles), she and about 2000 of her best friends:

    Dragged or carried 75lb concrete blocks up a 22% grade, and then carried them back down again:


    Crawled on their bellies for 30 yards, under barbed wire:




    Jumped over fire (though some were genuinely terrified by this):


    Negotiated (alone or with help) the water and mud hazards:


    And then, fought their way past the Gladiators standing in front of the finishline:


    Bloodied, but unbowed, they loved it:


    All with the D3s, 70-200/2.8 VRII

    are masterful. This is an outstanding series I am seeing from you.

    I might even add, one of the very best I have seen here.

    Lloyd, these are fanastic. The one of her jumping over the fire and the long-shot of them crawling beneath the barbed wire are my 2 favorites. You're really doing some wonderful work with the D3S. Great job.

    OK, so these weren't made with my Nikon digital, but they were made with my Nikon F6 and digi-tized ;-). All on the new Provia 400 (fabulous film).
    Please don't shoot me.
    John: Nice series. I esp. like the firefighters; but, it's a great shot of the Capitol Police. Gotta like their smiles.

    dunno if its kosher to lead you guys to images via a link to a portfolio site...but i'll give it a shot. haha.

    if you want to check out the whole series that goes with the last shot i posted, check it out here: http://dmeckert.4ormat.com/editorial

    (i'm having a website built...but the designer has been awful to deal with so far, despite having a wonderful clean aesthetic...i'm planning on tinkering with 4ormat a bit in case i end up scrapping what she's done and filing a charge back)

    Thanks Matt. Much appreciated. It is pretty reminiscent... those were the days, eh? (No "mud wenches" joined us bad then. Too bad. Would have been a much more pleasant experience, right?)

    LOL! Yes, my wife noted, when she looked at my gallery from the day, that there seemed to be a predominance of pictures of mud wenches. Hmm... I wonder how that happened.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    The most striking feature of this thread is the sheer variety of excellent images beeing posted. Far too many for me to comment on individually since my last post, but I really must congratulate Lloyd on his last series, just outstanding!

    Overdue (to put it mildly) here is the last installment of unseasonal images, the last one more recent to bring it up to date

    Thank you, Arne. I really appreciate your comment.

    This series of yours in terrific. (That last shot was a bit of surprise. Is that a winter blossom?) The dynamic range in the first shot is amazing. Love those clouds in the upper right.

    Thank you David. I feel the same!

    LOL! Yes, my wife noted, when she looked at my gallery from the day, that there seemed to be a predominance of pictures of mud wenches. Hmm... I wonder how that happened.
    Lloyd: "Mud wenches" would have made it more fun (or, a lot harder?). Your wife noticed that? Huh!

    Cheers, Matt

    This series of yours in terrific. (That last shot was a bit of surprise. Is that a winter blossom?) The dynamic range in the first shot is amazing. Love those clouds in the upper right.
    Thank you LLoyd! First shot was taken with the ZF-II 21mm, great match with the D3x. The flower is called Lupin here, it grows both wild and cultivated and blossoms in spring/early summer. It's perhaps not easy to recognize immediately as it has been shot from an unusual angle and with a wide aperture.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Steve, Matt: many thanks for the comments and feedback!
    FWIW the third image is one of the first shots with my converted Leica Apo-Summicron 2/180 to Nikon mount. (Leitax)
    Quite happy with the results from this combo, the lens draws in a slightly rounded," friendly" manner, yet delivers tons of detail with the D3x. Heavy beast though.

    Overdue (to put it mildly) here is the last installment of unseasonal images, the last one more recent to bring it up to date
    Arne, beautiful photography. #1- #3 are my favorites, with #3 being gorgeous to me.

    Regards.

    Dragged or carried 75lb concrete blocks up a 22% grade, and then carried them back down again:


    Crawled on their bellies for 30 yards, under barbed wire:




    Jumped over fire (though some were genuinely terrified by this):


    Negotiated (alone or with help) the water and mud hazards:


    And then, fought their way past the Gladiators standing in front of the finishline:


    Bloodied, but unbowed, they loved it:


    All with the D3s, 70-200/2.8 VRII
    nice work man that bokeh!!

    Going through my winter images, I came across a few more unseasonal shots.
    Hope you don't mind...

    Thanks, Matto. Much appreciated. Yeah, that 70-200/2.8 VRII gives some really nice bokeh. I'm loving it.
