There are many fine photos being posted here. Here's another of my D200 shots at the faire.
Very interesting space Matt, almost as nice as the theater which I really loved.
If I may make a comment, the tone mapping is kind of heavy handed in this one.
Very nice job Matt! Did you take the multiple bracketed exposure route or did you cheat and use the one-shot wizard in Photomatix Pro?
Two from the weekend in Door County, Wisconsin. The lighthouse dates from 1868. The gallery is a non-profit featuring local artists. The entire gallery building is adorned in "graffiti".
Fuji S5 and 17-55 f/2.8
Thank you for your friendly words, all of you.
More from the backyard.
D80 with 70-300 ED @ 100mm and f/5.0
More from yesterday, another kind of backyard, hidden between all the industrial estates on the Eastern Seaboard of Thailand.
D80 with Tamron 17-50mm @ 50mm and f/6.3
Very beautiful, Carlos. You're getting better for each performance.
Thanks Jorgen. I'm also getting faster at getting them processed. It only took me about 6 hours to get this set prepared and that was after wearing myself out mowing the lawn.
Active day yesterday. Here's a motocross driver in an unusual element.
D80 with 70-300 ED @ 300mm and f/6.3
D80 with 70-300mm ED @ 250mm and f/7.1
Outstanding work Carlos.
I have to disagree a tad with previous comments though since i really liked the previous series, too.
What lens do you use to shoot the latter performance ?
Very nice, Cindy.
Is the gallery featuring some of your own work ?
Jorgen- all your bike shots are appealing. For speed, or still.
The entire performance was shot with a
D700 + 70-200 f/2.8 VR.
Camera set to manual 1/250s f/3.5
Auto ISO from 200-6400
Shot RAW, processed in LR 2.4 + Noise Ninja for all shots ISO 3200+
The dance shots are better than ever Carlos. Much cleaner. The framing and timing seem spot on. Nice work!
More from the backyard, a real backyard volleyball player
D80 with Tamron 17-50mm @ 50mm and f/2.8
D80 with 85mm f/1.8 @ f/2.5

wish it were a 10mm prime ...
Nikon D300 • Sigma 10-20mmD f/4-5.6
Bondo: I really like the second one. They seem alert, almost as if they noticed you taking their picture!
Here's a little summer color down by the little fishway in town.
Your beautiful images of sunflowers reminded me of the photos taken by David Douglas Duncan, one of the foremost American photojournalists of our time. DDD used both Nikon and Leica cameras and his photos graced the cover of Life Magazine on a number of issues. All the best, Leica 77
those sunflowers are great!!! thanks CIndy, how about some more with that mamiya. have you ever tried the 35mm??
A few senior shots from last weekend.
