Thanks, Steve and Lloyd.
Jorgen, Great timing! The wet look really adds to the over all effect of a superb image.
That's flat out sensational, Matto!!
Matto, one of your best! Very cool.
Lloyd, the mud women are over the top, what a hoot.
Jorgen, great action shot, or is that stop action! Great shot.
Thanks, Rob. It was a hoot. And what's funny is that they're already trying to recruit more participants for next year!
Well I have LOTS to catch up on. For those of you who are working pro photographers, do you have problems taking pictures of significant others? My wife HATES it. But this time, she wanted the pictures, so I had to oblige... with good reason as you'll see....
Those are terrific, Jason! I especially love that last one.
Thx, Lloyd. The first and last of that set are my favs.
The last one had a slight WB change and vignette add, and that was it for post. If anyone doubts what that 16-35 can do, I'll show them that image.
Agree with Lloyd! Awesome & Congrats On Your New Beautiful Little Girl!
Matt, another Killer Shot!
A quick trip before the hurricane hit. It was due late Saturday night, so I went on Friday, set up camp and was going to start out Saturday morning and get back before things started popping. A forest ranger talked me out of it.
Anyway, The trip started by following a gorge along Alder Creek (near Schroon Lake), with a number of waterfalls.
Taken from a foot bridge over a creek that was fed by marsh.
Arriving at Goose Pond.
At the edge of the pond where I camped, a frog waits for dinner to arrive.
The mountain I had intended on climbing that morning Pharoah Mountain.
Loons on the pond. The damn things start making noise at 3:30 in the morning then they seem to laugh at you.
Not going to make the trip up the mountain, I spent my time photographing the multitude of mushrooms along the trail.
P.S. the storm arrived a bit eariler than anticipated. I was safe at home.
Very nice set CN! Digging the "Shrooms"!
Matt, i can smell the Mold! Great color,texture & signature style!

D700, 180mm AIS 2.8 ED
Jason: Congratulations again! I, also, love the last one.
Conrad: Great set of excellent photos!! If, i was singling one out, it's be the first Pharaoh Mountain photo.
Matt: You seem to have an endless supply of derelict industrial and institutional buildings? Consistently photographed brilliantly.
Steve: You even carry around your camera at work! Cool portraits and "blackmail" shot.
This is part of a long series, Urban Landscapes. Since I use either very long lenses or a macro, I think that the word landscape is used tenuously and somewhat ironically. This photo was taken at 800 ISO. Joe
Matto, "Dustin Hoffman" Thanks You Also!
JSF, Like The Comp, Minute Thread Count Detail & Shadows. Cool Shot!
Great portraits Steve!
And happy Labor Day weekend to all.
Thank you all for the compliments and encouragement.
Part of my Urban Landscape series. I think it was 1600 ISO, not much PP, just the standard exposure and contrast control, some vibrance and that is it, I set the camera to as wimpy a setting as is possible, so all standard processing pretty much involves exposure clipping and building contrast back in and then tweaking the color a smaLL bit or not at all. Joe
JSF, cool reflections,color & comp!
A few new images from Smith Rock SP in Central Oregon....
Evening light cascading across the campground across the way....
An evening look down the Crooked River....
After the stars came out.....
And a B&W from an earlier trip.....
Its one of my favorite places in Oregon to visit.
Haven't been around for a while. Lots of great stuff.
I see gorgeous rainy girls (Jorgen), radiant muddy girls (Lloyd), buxom girls on sofas... Yup, lots of fun.
Girls usually are, aren't they?
More girls, this time in wildflowers. She's shy, and beautiful. Exquisite composition, Lloyd.
Crashed cars are -normally- much less fun, but this one perfectly captured
Tim: i really like the miniature look you achieved using the tilted lens. Incidentally the "magic" bride shot goes well with these, too
(or did you shot it with the T/S lens also?). The magic melon sounds appealing for today's temperatures. And if i were youger i'd love the magic ride (terrific shot btw).
From now on i guess i'll address you as "Magic Tim"
Carlos, Miami by night can be magic too, like in your shots. Hope the jury voted well.
Steve : many B&W wonders, street, beach, portraits. And oh yeah, yours bigger
The sunglasses are super ultra cool (maybe the tag could be removed?)... dogs, too.
Talking about beach shots, another, older of of yours popped into my mind. One of my favourite photos, period. Can't seem to find it now, though... got to look harder.
Great portraits on the last page. #3 is terrific, also the model in a De Niro kind of way.
Roman: beautiful set here, as always. The night shot is no less than staggering!
John, Ben, David, Charles, Matto (i'll second the "Sensational"! Etching-like detail. Industrial armageddon" comment above), all of you guys do display some superb work in the last pages.
Good to be back. Feels like home.
