Forgot Jason's wonderful images from his wife... truly great.
Favorite, if any, is next to last. Wow.
Perfect night shot, Roman
Thank you all very much!!!! I have not had as many "outings" as I would have liked this year. Hopefully the latter 1/4 will make up for the first 3/4. I miss these moments to recharge my batteries.
Conrad: Very nice series. I especially liked the misty lake.
Matto: Wow! Great stuff... that "bed light" shot is killer!
Joe: Excellent Urban landscapes. Thanks for sharing.
Steve: Powerful portraits, cuz!
Tim: That watermelon looks good enough to eat! Hope you had a nice Labor Day.
Roman: Stunning series. The night shot just blows me away!
Corlan: Lovely girls indeed. (and thank you for you comments.)
Nice job on these.
John, that is two seperate shots. I dont have the newest flippy dippy insane high ISO camera out there, so I am stuck with the older trick of one frame after dusk while some minor ambient light is still bouncing around our atmosphere. Then I just leave the camera on the tripod, wait a few hours and take the stars portion of the shot. Process both as they appeared, and walla. I have a starry night shot with the blend of two night shots.
Hoping this year, I can get the D5100 for just this purpose. I don't want or need Full Frame, this little DX camera is better at high ISO and shadow recovery as well as Dynamic Range of the D3X. The sensor is all I will need, and I get to dabble in movies and get the articulating screen which I am seriously looking forward to. (and why I wolnt go with the D7000 or my D300 replacment when it comes out. Most of my work that sells is about perspective, and that articulating screen will be a serious help.
I've spent the last two days travelling around Bangkok with a food journalist. Very interesting and rather hectic. We visited seven luxury restaurants yesterday, ending our day around 22.00 hrs. Today was a lot more lax, with only a wine tasting on the program. Here's the wine farmer, Khun Visooth, who presented wine that I would never have thought was made in this country. Great experience!

Ok...you know how you can see faces in a rock face sometimes?
Now.....do not hold me responsible for what my mind sees here...but on the right side of the picture. The long edge of the chair coming out of the glasses, does this look questionable to anyone?
I thought someone was giving me the bird when I first scrolled by it. (you know...like those big foam fingers you see at major sporting events)
Don't shoot me...I'm just the messenger.
i see what you mean now that it's pointed out. and now every time i scroll by i see it as something completely different, though still middle finger related. lmao (i'm around way too many teenagers on a daily basis...it does things to the mind. hahaha)
Roman, mesmerizing image! Ansel Who?
About "After the stars came out..."
It is two excellent photos in one. Use the auto-adjust in free viewer Fast Stone, for example, and you see the second photo. I guess it is a testament to what modern sensors can capture in 30 seconds of low light - in capable hands.
+1 from here. Just right.
Thanks guys. Yesterday, back to the race circuit. 6 hours endurance race. Most of the action was in the pit lane (sorry, no ladies).

Jorgen, "Under Pressure" Is Awesome For Framing, Balance & Vision!!!
Roman: "masters backyard" it is. I like the composition and the somehow analog feel (esp. in the background) for this one.
In fact, both are!
(nice commercial touch with the focus on the sponsor's name rather than on the guy's face / manometer btw... be it serendipitous or not )
Pretty colors & comps Tim.
Thanks Lloyd and Steve! But Fall is the very bestest season of all! Summer? Bah humbug.
Yeah, I know, and I love the Fall. Just not looking forward to that bully who follows him.
Two views of a waterfall in northern Saratoga County on the SnookKill Creek. The falls takes an abrupt right hand turn at the bottom.
Irony: The falls is less than 5 miles from where I lived for over 25 years -- it took a book to tell me where it was!

D3s, 70-200/2.8 VRII:
Lloyd, Love them all!
CN, beautiful sights & shooting!
Thanks Steve. Much appreciated.
Roman and Mr. Blex: Thank you!
LLoyd: Bubble girl is a beauty. You manage to surround yourself with beautiful women. Nice going!
Thanks Tim. I think it has something to do with opposites attracting.
Thanks Roman. My granddaughter... who has had me wrapped around her little finger since birth.
