    Steve: GQ has declared Boston as "Worst Dressed Place in America" (Seattle was only #32 ) Also, Cheech is probably in LA. Both facts are extremely relevant to your photo. Cool capture. Bit of tension with the women looking off to the right. Moves the eye back and forth between Tommy and her. Wonder what the women's looking at? Good photo = questions. Super B & W.

    Cheers, Matt.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    This is "Lefty". He's one of the largest grizzlies in the Khutzeymateen. Apparently, he hadn't been around for a couple of years, and here he is, walking out of the woods! Named "Lefty" because of the missing left ear that he probably lost in a fight.

    When he wasn't looking directly at us, we were moving slowly back towards the zodiac! He's what the three teenage bears were standing on their hind legs to smell. They skedaddled way up the beach and into the woods, a minute, or two, before he showed up.

    Rayyan, My Bad In Assuming Such Comedic Brilliance Is World Renowned. Cheech & Chong Were Comedians In The 70 & 80s & Being In High School At The Time, It Was The Funniest Stuff Around! I Thought This Chap Resembled One of The Stars, Tommy Chong. Here's A Little Intro To Their Shtick..

    Left is quite a magnificent specimen! No wonder the teenage bears "skedaddled". Looks like a force to be reckoned with... and best done from a respectful distance. The look in his eyes in that last shot will haunt your dreams.

    Rayyan: Don't know about Lefty; but, I know Lucy (mama bear with two cubs) recognizes the Zodiacs and maybe the guides?).
    She likes them around, and camps out close, because it keeps bears like Lefty away!

    Lloyd: He was impressive, and a little scary. That look is really sizing us up (for a meal?) and warning us off.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    I don't have the organizational skills that Corlan seems to possess (as evidenced by his personalized commentary on pages of photos) and it's a bit humid for me to get too flowery or wordy. But hey, you know I love you, right? Wonderful images from everyone.

    One note: JBCrane's Tri-X shots prove that when it comes to B&W, Tri-X is still the king. If anyone is wondering what B&W should look like, the film is a terrific compass—even when scanned. Also, please note the lack of grain! Hey, I'm just sayin' and with full-disclosure have to admit to being a complete anti-grain-er. As "bad" as Tri-X could be when it comes to grain, some of the post effects meant to mimic film grain make it look positively smooth. Just my 2C.

    Still, as far as I'm concerned, you guys can't be beet.



    Best,
    Tim

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Lovely winter shots, Arne. Makes me want to go back to Lommedalen and dig out my skis... if they still exist. Their lateness reminds me of the good, old proverb "Hvis skaran bærer i juni blir det sein vår"

    Here's one from me.

    D80 with Tamron 17-50 @ 50mm, f/11 and 1/60s



    You thought Kiwis can't fly? Equip them with a large V8 engine, and they will

    D300 with 80-200 AF-S @ 120mm, f/10 and 1/200s



    ... oh, and anime style contact lenses seem to be the rage at the moment. I can live with that I guess

    D300 with 80-200 AF-S @ 112mm and f/4.0

    Tim: Brilliantly photographed beet. A cupcake, carrots and fruit on the Leica M thread, and now a beet. Where's the beef?

    I think most of us realize that there's nothing like real film. I don't believe that the pp (i.e. SEP2) is getting the same look. It's just getting a "look" (and it can be a very cool one!}. Tofurky? It's a big menu with plenty to choose from. With film the fare is limited; and, that's a plus.

    BTW: John's web sites are a treat!

    thanks gentlemen i think i'm definitely gonna bust out the epoxy and put the globe together properly. just gotta pick the 10" or 12" (or buy another mount plate. lol). and i'll keep the tech info coming...i figure these forums are as much about gear as they are great photos...and its helpful as a reference.

    cheers

    oh...and i'll have more coming in the next few days. i've nearly finished two more sets.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    My take on a cliche'd subject. I was scoping out the garden for a return shoot in better light in the fall. However, I kind of liked this Saturday afternoon version.

    D700, 24-120/4 VR

    Here's one from me.

    D80 with Tamron 17-50 @ 50mm, f/11 and 1/60s



    You thought Kiwis can't fly? Equip them with a large V8 engine, and they will

    D300 with 80-200 AF-S @ 120mm, f/10 and 1/200s

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    as promised, some from the last shoot i finished retouching. no pretty girl factor here either...it was boy week, seemingly. lol

    aspiring fitness model.







    a little artsy:



    and a little faux b&w film/faux terry richardson (i realize this style isn't for everyone):



    all d300 + 28-70...varying degrees of post-processing. first shot and headshot are 22" beauty dish main, 86" plms on the sides, plus bg lights. the medicine ball and artsy one are PLM main + PLM side + BG. the last one is a shoe-mounted SB600 with +3.0 exposure compensation on the flash.

    Steve, thank you my friend.

    Most of my relatives are deaf!! Tone deaf!! Except my son who plays the guitar.

    Me, I think music is the work of the devil. That's why I enjoy it so much!!

    This was in a restuarant in Turkey.

    Regards.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    A friend here asked me what my city looks like. Like any other big city, I guess.

    Take the first exit right and then a U-turn, a little ways down you shall arrive at my house.

    Keep going straight in the extreme left lane for about a 1000 kms and you shall
    be in Makkah, the Holiest City in Islam and for the Muslims.


    You are headed west.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    I know that this will probably "off-topic", but I couldn't find a forum to put it in, and as this is where I'm best known, I figured that I'd start here.

    The New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation is holding a photo contest for the International Year of Forests and this is the web address for it. I, myself, can't enter it (because that's where I work), but maybe there is interest here.

    Once again, my apologies for being off-topic.

    Steve: Very nice set! Love the simple compositions, the strength of your subject comes barreling through. My favorite is No. 2. There's something about the color that really appeals to me. Nice work.

    You are headed west.
    This shot is impressive. Clearly looks to have been shot from a vehicle, and yet the starburst effect from the lights is typical only when using a very small aperture. How did you manage to use a high enough shutter speed to stop the motion, get the starburst and still get a decent exposure? Nicely done. (oh, and now we know the way, you just may get some company dropping by! )
