    Tim, that's a super image. Congrats on the D700. You will indeed find it an excellent backup for your D4.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Hamza would call me often in Bali. I told him it was very green. As green as Texas?.

    I don't about that, but I sent him two snaps from my balcony..




    Definitely, much much greener than where is now. Tropical green.

    No sharpening. After the routine noon showers with the zf 100/2 at f =5.6

    Tim - since i shoot RAW the in-camera PC setting doesn't matter much. From back when i was shooting some jpegs, i kept the default Standard as my go-to setting which i also fine for on-the-fly preview purposes on the LCD. For some portrait especially in difficult light you'll find neutral a better work base -especially since, if memory serves, you favor luminance based processing.

    Can't remember for sure which RAW converter you generally use. C1 maybe? In that case, it's a good tool for the D700, though keep in mind that unlike ACR/LR and of course NX2, C1's profiles (Linear, Standard etc.) don't match Nikon proprietary ones, so...
    While we're at it, sidenote on C1 for the D700: since you use PS afterwards, i'd recommend to keep the sharpening to a minimum (depending on the versions, default setings can prove a bit high at the RAW stage) and keep this for the last stages in PS, as usual.

    (if i'm wrong and you don't use C1... well )

    Thanks Corlan. Forgot about RAW/jpeg. I'm a RAW man so doesn't apply. Doh! Thanks for the tip on the sharpening.

    One more from Friday night. Trumpet virtuoso Steve Reid, most recently of the Brian Setzer Orchestra. I've never heard anyone hit the high notes this guy can reach. Definitely played some hot licks!

    Nevetherless, it'll change your LCD preview. Relevant or not, depending on your chimping habits.
    In C1 Linear Response is the closest to the Nikon Neutral profile, and Standard to... Standard.
    There's no equivalent to Vivid though, and that's a shame for some landscapes and some macro work outside.

    All that said with the new camera it might sound like a good idea to check results with Nikon profiles with either ACR/LR (latest versions) or NX2. It'll give you a more comprehensive view of your new toy's possibilities.

    And, my guess is that you'll like the... D2X Mode 1 with the D700 files, especially for portraits

    Btw Tim: did you check you had the last FW v.1.02 in your D700? I know i know, sounding like a broken record about this, but...

    Thank you Corlan. This was at ISO 5000 as well. It was shooting these with the 84/1.4 that I discovered that I still had the ND filter on the 70-200. He's actually in a darker part of the stage, so it worked out.

    Thanks Cuz.

    BTW, one thing I thought was cool about Steve Reid, was that when he wasn't playing his solos, rather than leaving the stage, he jumped into the Trumpet section with the kids, and played right along. Not much of a shot, but here he is with my Nephew's band. (My nephew plays trombone, and is right in front of Steve... with his face hidden by the bell of his horn.)

    I shot this last year with the old 200mm f2 ais at a small Jazz Club on the southside. I really love this lens.

    Jeff Coffin of the Dave Matthews Band. This guy was incredible!


    Local college professor, Ray Smith, joined Jeff for a couple of numbers. Ray is small, understated, and walks with a pronounced limp, having lost a leg many years ago. He had just flown in from the Moscow Jazz Festival, arriving only minutes before he was to perform, and he and Jeff had not met. When this guy started to play, he brought the house down. We were in awe... as, clearly, was Jeff. From that point, it was game on, each trying to outshine the other. And it just got better an better. What a show!



    D3s, 70-200/2.8 VRII @ f2.8, 1/320, ISO 5000. (I struggled at first to figure out why I needed such a high ISO, as stage lights are usually pretty bright, and this venue was new, with great equipment. Then, about halfway through the concert, I realized I hadn't removed the ND4 filter I'd put on the lens when shooting a XC ski race on Monday. Duh!)
    Lloyd: Nicely done!! BTW Dave lives just up the street in my Neighborhood.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Steve Great series of portraits! The last one's very cool.
    Rayyan: 1) I probably would have had more fun if you were with me in Hawaii. My wife was at her conference most of the time. Hope you enjoyed my dance!
    2) Surf's up in Bali! I'm with you on the "beach scene".
    3) The bamboo musical instrument photo's colors are super. "Gamelan"?
    4) Terrific light and contrast in the fisherman photo
    5) One thing Mies Van der Rohe had right (that detail thing), along with "Less is more".
    6) A chocolate wouldn't make such a nice photo
    Photojazz: My favorite's the third one. Not "traditional"
    Hermann: I love the first bus station shot. The kid's look makes it for me.
    Lloyd: You're right. Great shadows in the D3 photo.
    Bob: I like the "trapped" series and I don't even like golf!

    Endurance racing in Thailand isn't exactly Le Mans 24h, but still somehow related, and great fun for all involved. The races are 6 hours, and there are 3 of them in one season.

    Steve: Brilliant composition, IQ, and texture in "Fixable..."
    Rayyan: 1) Another stellar portrait. Interesting look? 2) Nice vendor, hideout and iced tea. Now, i'm thirsty. PP's superb, as Lloyd said. 3) Model shoot!!! That's why i want to follow you. Stylishly composed and elegant photo. 4) The rice shot has a great asymmetrical balance (as did the model photo) 5) Incredible presentation of ______ (appetizers/snacks?) 6) the flowers with the rice paddies is great. 7) Beautiful ending photo. Smooth.
    Joe: "Joycean" in narrative and image. Well done!
    Steve: 1) "Faces of Wisdom"...great series. 2) Beautiful photo of the mother and two girls!
    Grady: Great series!

    Rob: Nice shots of Ft. Morgan!
    Steve: "Bruin" in steam - brassai-like! Wonderful.
    Lloyd: 1) Several notches above the D3 was my impression too. Better senor, among other improvements. 2) Excellent sports action shot! She's got long legs.
    Jorgen: 1) Well done Press conference shots. 2) "Applause" is very cool: pattern, color, rhythm, expressions. 3) "Red Dance" is brilliantly composed and captured! 4) nice colors in "Fuel Stop" 5) pit stop timing doesn't appear to be too important?
    Matt: Crazy, Cool Macro! (or, did I just read that somewhere?). The second one, also!
    Rayyan: 1) Thanks for sharing Ayesha's photos. Congratulations to her! 2) Astonishing temple! Is it accessed at low tide? 3) The temple water shot's terrific. 4-5,7-8, 10) You have the soul and empathy of a true artist. 6) rich colors in the rice paddy. 9) perfect juxtaposition and rhythm in the makeup photo 11) It's a jungle out there. 12) Fantastic costumes! Must have been something to see.
    pete: Nice work!!!
    Tim: Congrats on the D700. I'm waiting fort the D800 at the moment. Terrific photos. Not sure about the doggie jail, though? If you're shooting RAW, the "vivid" etc. settings don't matter ( I read on and Corlan already said that 11 hours ago!) (and 8 hours ago you figured it out!) (the hazards of reading from old to new)
    Ayesha: Gorgeous photo!

    I shot this last year with the old 200mm f2 ais at a small Jazz Club on the southside. I really love this lens.
    Another superb shot, Pete.
    Who's the gentleman btw?

    Definitely a terrific lens. My favorite in F-mount, too (along with two 50's from Zeiss/Contax and the 105VR, for different purposes). The new 85 seems incredible, too.

    Good to hear from you, Matt.
    We were worried, i guess -quite clearly indeed- for no reason

    The one quoted above looks more "Matt D" than the others to me. Like with Rayyan balinese shots, less flesh and ware is preferable... but also like Rayyan, sounds like you guys have real tough times waiting for your respective wifes.

    Souds like neither the chairs, or the light had a lot to do either on that day. Nice

    Cool grabs, especially the Duane Eddy moment

    Loving your Waikiki shots, Matt. This one has amazing processing! Don't know that I'd like to hang around with 5000 people, but I could use some warm weather!

    Corlan F. ~ thanks again

    The Tenor Saxophonist playing is Edward House, a local player in an ensemble out here. I was lucky on this night as he sometimes wears a kufi, but on this night he didn't and that worked out perfect as this lens was able to capture the bead of sweat coming down as he played.

    Really enjoying these racing shots, Jorgen. Very colorful events. This one looks like soccer moms racing to get the kids to practice.

    The guy behind the wheel in this particular car is one of the best, possibly the best, drivers in Thailand. He does endurance races for fun, and won with a huge margin. They do have a class for celebrity girls also. Soap opera stars etc. You wont believe the nuances of pink you can get a racing car painted in

    Thanks Cuz.

    BTW, one thing I thought was cool about Steve Reid, was that when he wasn't playing his solos, rather than leaving the stage, he jumped into the Trumpet section with the kids, and played right along. Not much of a shot, but here he is with my Nephew's band. (My nephew plays trombone, and is right in front of Steve... with his face hidden by the bell of his horn.)

    Thats very cool of him! Kids must have loved that!
