    really nice, of course the photographer is the most important issue, but that lens seems to have a nice performance with the d800. More questions for me, does the 24-70 worth U$S700 over the 24-120VR for the d800e?? Now, I`m not so sure.
    I appreciate your work please go on sharing it.

    Great shot!

    I just played with Wess Anderson a few weeks ago... he's amazing. (I'm a trumpet player in Baton Rouge where he lives)

    I really would! It has this great ability to add gentle contrast to soft light but to make hard light look softer. I took the Cron, a 24-120 and a 70-200 on this short holiday and pretty quickly got into the habit of just taking the Cron with me. I am addicted!

    Tim,

    do you use an adapter with the Cron or with changed mount?

    The Leitax mount... you unscrew part of the Leica mount and remove a couple of small parts, then screw the Leitax part on. Takes less than five minutes and does not damage and is totally reversible... really really worth trying!

    Agreed, that capture is the decisive moment subdivided to absolute perfection.

    Thank you guys. The boat photo was sheer luck, the kind of luck that usually arrives after 15-20 minutes of waiting

    The first Corsica shot is great, Jolly

    What do you do on holidays, grandpa?

    Nothing.

    Jorgen, can you please stop posting amazing photos that weren't made with the D800? I do not want to accept that the photographer rather than the camera is responsible for the finest work. It seems unfair.

    Thank you, Tim. It's very unfortunate really, but with a little glue and the occasional charging of batteries, the D300 seems to soldier on forever. I did give away the D80 though. Maybe with a little prayer now and then, I'll be able to afford the D800 before the 172MP D900 is announced?

    D300 with 80-200 AF-S @ 130mm and f/4



    Alternatively, I could find an extra job as a motorbike messenger. Can't be hard work, can it?

    D300 with Nikkor 300mm f/4 AF @ f/4



    These both from yesterday's outing.

    Hej Jørgen

    I truly admire what you get out of your D300. I have a D300 now, since I sold my equipment early on in hopes of D800 was for delivery. I used ugly words about my D300, but when I see what you get out of yours, I get embarrassed.

    But I don't understand how you get the colors out of it - what do you do in pp?

    Or i it weather, lenses, set up ?

    Thank you. I'm not sure what I do myself sometimes, and it has taken a couple of years to become friendly with this camera. The approach is different depending on light, lens and exposure, but curves adjustments is what helps me the most. Very often I use one adjustment to increase contrast (S-shape) and then another one to lift exposure/brightness/saturation by pulling the middle of the curve upwards (ACR or PS).

    To avoid the "D300 Yellow", I usually reduce the colour temperature slightly more than what common sense should indicate, and then drag the tint towards magenta a bit (ACR).

    If the photo is overexposed (I usually overexpose 1/3 stop), I protect the highlights by clicking on an almost blown are (tolerance 10-20), reverse selection, feather quite a bit and the do the adjustments in mid to dark areas.

    I'm sure I could improve my techniques by using layers more actively, but after more than 15 years with PS, I'm not nearly there yet

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Camera is now on factory setup. Every time it's in to get something fixed, the people at Nikon reset it, so I've found that I'll rather learn to live with their settings than try to remember my own. I only shoot RAW anyway.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images



    I went to the Denver Botanic Garden yesterday. It was the first time I went there without a tripod. I just wanted to see how the Nikon D800 with VR lenses work w/o tripod. It was more fun and less of the back pain!

    Nikon D800, Nikon 70-200mm VR II at 145mm, Canon 500D close-up filter
    ISO 1600, f/2.8, 1/8000 (didn't check the shutter speed before shooting; Otherwise the ISO and f-stop setting would have been changed)
    Slightly cropped.
    Handholding. It was windy.

    Thanks for viewing.

    @Ustein: what kind of processing went into your black & whites? I really like the feel to them!
