Shoveling ice before the crowds come to watch the non-pc fish tossing. Pike Place Market, Seattle. Thanks for looking. cheers.

Here's a snapshot, so take it for what it is. I was having lunch with a new "old friend" (as our friend Andree would have put it), and as we had nothing to do for the next couple of hours, she asked if we could go to see the tigers and crocodiles at Sriracha Tiger Zoo, so off we went. The lighting at the tiger show is awful (coloured stage lighting combined with open fire), and everything has to be shot through a fence, with around 0.5 second for preparations for each new scene. The guys behind the fence work fast.
D80 with 85mm f/1.8 @ f/2.5 and 1/250s
Like the guys said...
Jorgen- this is some serious firing tiger
('like the stars in movement continuity in the composition, in this regard maybe i'd try and clone out everything at the bottom to black)
And here's the "old friend"
Taken in direct sunlight, with the old 70-300 ED. That lens is amazingly sharp up to around 150mm.

... and in colour
Last couple of days I've been having difficulties with photosubjects so I ... split And now I have two bodies... and two lenses!
Just the one peach-colored cloud.
Thanks. It was processed in Lightroom, to Nik Color Efex Pro 3.0 (tonal contrast), back to Lightroom, then to Nik Silver Efex Pro, and back to Lightroom. The Lightroom adjustment brush was used to darken the snow/fish area a bit. Cheers.
... on the way back:
Larger screens? -> link for larger version:
(still losing a lot of transitions and smoothness compared to the 16-bit Tiff, as always...)
wow that is nice!!!!!
capture one pro strikes again!!!
Great stuff (as always) Matt.
thanks LLoyd just got permission for two new places and I am hitting up gary soon!!!
Very cool as usual, Matt, but your car has lost a wheel
Corlan, that's a perfect "design".
^^ wow that is nice!!!
Nice Bondo! Once again, the interesting light makes all the difference.
Carlos- this is extremely nice. (CV lens?)
btw re C1 v5 the light treatment is improved, colours are right on, though for now i have some reservations for details (not critical in your image). I'll have to post a comparaison with NX2 in this regard.
Alex- missed the photo above, it's a super original composition
Tim- peachy indeed!
Steen, another keeper. These subtle shades of brown have a smooth yet textured feel.
(alternative title: what's "the weight of light?" )
a small question after looking at the larger file: did you turn on the CA correction in NX2?
Dunno this lens but it seems it can be improved in PP on this criteria.
Lots of thanks to you all, Matt, Tim, Corlan, Lloyd, Jorgen, and Alex ...
@ Matt: Much appreciated, and coming from you ! I mean, after all you are the one who has taught me everything I know about viablexography. I'm glad I passed
@ Tim: Exactly, it's all about the light, just like with your recent beautiful leaf shots
@ Corlan: You were absolutely right, Mr. Hawkeye, there was obviously some reddish color fringing at the lower edge of the light from the vindow.
I always start the post processing in Capture NX (v.1) by removing the Auto Color Aberration and the Noise Reduction as well, it has become a habit, maybe a bad habit.
I usually do very little post processing, I'm either too lazy, too much of a purist, or more likely too ignorant with regards to post processing.
Now I have activated the Auto Color Aberration plus the D2Xmode3 Picture Control, and uploaded the files again. Definitely an improvement, thanks Corlan
@ Alex: In that case I have finally reached my goal, that's as high as I can get. Now I can quit photography with peace in my mind ...

I have moved. To the opposite side of the building, and up from third to sixth floor. But since none of you will ever see this, here's a photo of the view from the balcony. The lack of light is due to the time of day. Or night.

Love the "Islands of Life" kind of view in that shot, Jorgen. Each light tells a different story.
