3 Great Looks Tim!
Thanks Steve and John. Appreciate it. Have to think about showing #3... in-laws and all... could be dicey!
More Portra work at the cabin this weekend. Ran my first roll of the new 160 and boy, great stuff. Beautiful, warm hues, nice range, good color distribution & fall off, pretty grain structure. I'm really liking the new Portra line. Grain is great on the 400, but superb on the 160... just enough to keep it from looking digital. I've also been shooting my 85/1.4D more and wondering why on earth I don't use it more. Noticing what sometimes is a substantial difference between my favorite go-to zooms and the beautifully sharp and smooth primes (50/1.4, 85/1.4, 105VR)... guess they're called "primes" for a reason... Hope you enjoy.
This is the 85/1.4 @ f11, tripod-mounted M-up, gold reflector bouncing sunlight into a shaded setting.
Open shade hand held with the 85/1.4 @ f2:
Natural window light hand held with the 85/1.4 @f2
All with the F6 (have I mentioned how much I love that camera?).
Some shot I took tonight for a juried exhibition on Miami:
All shots Nikon D700 + 24-70 f/2.8 @ f/11. Shutter speeds between 6 - 15 seconds.
The deadline is August 15. I am trying to decide between all three of these or some of my previous shots.
Oddly enough, the shorter of the two towers is where Capture Integration is located in Miami...
I Know...Mine's Bigger...
D3, 300VR1 2.8
Nah, lens. He shot that with the 300VR1 2.8
That would make any male photographer envious...
Time To Wake This Nikon Thread Up!
D700, 50 G 1.4
Great stuff, Steve. And some amazing processing. That outta do it!
The rumor of my...whatever, is greatly exaggerated.
MHC: Brilliant orange photo!
Corlan: Excellent portraits!
Robert: As Lloyd said: "Nice, but I agree. Those you posted are better."
John: Love #2 and #4: comp., detail, color, focus!
Steve: Great composition!
Matt: Cool, gritty, boxing photo.
Jorgen: Cool 'wet pan"! Ditto to what Corlan said.
Rob: Looks like a keeper to me. I like the way the white of the flowers is echoed by the snow capped mountains; and, the opposing lines of the flowers and the mountains.
Jorgen: #2 for me - more context, strong lines, nice composition
Matt: As they said, really nice IR.
Rayyan: Excellent composition and pp.
John: Great photo! Velvia working at it's strength.
Rayyan: Really nice blueish landscape. I'm curious, was it taken through a window?
Steve: !!! Cool! #2, #7 and #10 - little different...and, excellent. Superb "action" photos.
John: One of my favorite films. Haven't tried the 'new' stuff. Nice shot.
Tim: Brides deserve a little magic. #3 is a classic!
John: More really nice shots!
Carlos: Brilliant work! Light color, and tone in the last one are esp. terrific.
Steve: That's a look!
Steve: Just can't make a box big enough for you!
Tim...Ultra Cool With Great Color & Barnum & Baily Feel!
Steve, love the dog portrait, great way to resurrect the thread.
And here is adding one more to the water theme. My better half paddling Bowman Lake in Glacier National Park last weekend. I will be dead meat for posting this one if she ever finds out.

Hey thanks Rob!
And why would you be dead meat? It's a great shot of a great place. My wife and I did our honeymoon in Montana almost (gulp) 20 years ago. Spectacular!
Went on a hike with friends yesterday afternoon. Schlepped some gear along. Not great light, but got few. Here's one; more to follow:

Woo-hoo Lloyd! Money shot! Wicked nice.

Great set(s), Steve. Looks like a good time. I especially like that "Soft As A Grape" shot. Nice SP.
