Thanks, Lloyd, I'm partial to that lens too! The B&W is processed using Silver EFex Pro.
This thread is too fast for an old man like me... you guys never sleep?
Your architecture gets increasingly interesting, Alex. Please keep on.
Bondo, beautiful Egypt photo.
Another organic experiment. 40 layers later... it still needs work! What a blast though.
From this morning's trail run. All this will be ablaze with color within a couple of weeks. 4-shot Pano:
This is a beautiful four-shot pano. I shall look forward to the autumn colors in a couple of weeks! I am taking a little break from the Nikon thread at the moment and experimenting with the fine art of "Bokehgraphy" with Keith, Rafael, Michiel, Vivek and others. All the best to you! Leica 77
I will post a picture up I have the terminology wrong
Gray day yesterday, but the camera still works
D80 with 70-300 ED @ 240mm and f/7.1
One more from yesterday.
D80 with 85mm f/1.8 @ f/2.5 and 1/80s
simply amazing--great shots!! it was overcast here also and i had 'fun' color correcting my shots today before filing them with my service....
And then, today, with the sun out again, I take photos in the shade
D80 with 70-300 ED @ 105mm and f/7.1
Jorgen, these slopes are indeed enlightening. Great composition.
Oh, and the green cabs seem more fun than their famous yellow counterparts...
It's part of a temple complex along the road from Bangkok to Pattaya. This building is still under construction, and my guess is that it will take at least a year or two before it's finished. There was no activity there yesterday, so I guess they've run out of money for now. It's a very peculiar steel construction btw. Very modernistic, but the style seems to be inspired by Lao temples, but as opposed to those, it's blue, lilac and silver (Lao temples are mostly yellow, red and gold).
Two more oldies from the D2x.

Great stuff in general on here to day folks. One can miss a lot being away for a day or two.
Just ran across this one from last fall.
D300; 12-24 @ 14mm:
Nice image Lloyd!
Lloyd, that is simply megacool!
Thanks Jorgen, they were actually taken the same day. The boat shot is a sunrise shot just outside of Ketchikan, AK, and the other during a (smaller) boat tour of the Misty Fiords NP. It was so calm the water was like a mirror in places. Hard to take a bad shot when Mother Nature is having such a stellar day.
those are magical !!
Thanks Gents, that means a lot! The funny part is that when we left Vancouver, the weather, and the weather forecast were miserable for the entire 3-day voyage (Vancouver - Ketchikan - Seattle), but it turned out to be just incredible. Picture taking was just so easy as everywhere you turned presented such a magnificent tableau.
I used a couple of D300 bodies with the 12-24, the 16-85 and the 70-300 lenses.
Lloyd: that's a very intense shot of the tree. I love how it curves in one direction and the shadow goes in another. Nice!
I used to spend a lot of time in the wet darkroom dodging and burning to get this kind of drama, so workflow now is just such a pleasure. I quite understand that some may not like the results, but at least I've provoked a reaction. I'm obviously not going for a natural look!
Simon - fantastic sceneries.
Seconding Tim though, i'm under the impression that the extra (somehow artificial?) processing might not serve some of these outstanding photos, the clouds in particular.
