Jorgen: Here's tweaked versions of the same photos.
Rayyan: Thank you. When i went back to the original, I could see the area that was cropped out and it was misaligned. I also did a little more PP to both. Hopefully, I didn't pump the color up beyond subtlety?
Thank you both for your comments.
A smile from today.
D80 with 80-200 AF-S @ 200mm and f/4.0

Matt: wonderful use of that great lens. I like the most recent version best.
Jorgen: Love the moto shot... and the folks who hang around there... er, well, yes, just sayin'!!
Steve: You're making me homesick, cuz!! Beautiful processing, as always. Love that second image in particular. (Gorgeous subject in that last one!)
Thank you Lloyd and rayyan.
The wedding was insane. By Chicago standards, a big wedding is over 200 guests. This topped over 900 guests. My shoulder feels broken, my suit was soaked with sweat by the end of the night, but it was AMAZING! It was a Seik wedding so there were very ornate turbans and sari's as well as black tie for the westerners. There was Bollywood stars performing and an amazing vegetarian meal.
Unfortunately, I cannot post images per my contract without approval, but as soon as some of them get approved, I will post them.
The D3/D700 pair worked great. Shot most w/ the 28-70, and the 70-200, 50 1.4, and 21 2.8 completed the kit for the night.
Thanks for asking!
Many have confused him for 4-time Boston winner, Robert Kipkoech Cheruiyot, who did not run this year due to injury. The two are not related, but the younger Robert considers the elder an example and mentor.
Lovely b&w's from Boston. I keep coming back to this one for some reason. Not as "artistic" as the others, but a portrait where I really feel that the character of the man comes out towards me.

Guess who I ran into in Italy recently!
Here is a Taraxacum officinale/Dandelion (UV) portrait. There are many "Dandelions" and different varieties show up in the same place even due to subtle changes in the climate, during similar seasons and time of a year! Totally confusing...
False color reflected UV shot (no Nikon gear).
Thanks for all kind remarks, folks!
I stay away because (as I already mentioned) I no longer use Nikon equipment (barring some flashes and the UV-Nikkor 105/4.5). I do follow this thread. Really top notch stuff posted here.
Steen, Thanks for your kind words! I am humbled.
D3, 24 1.4
Ashes to Ashes....
Truly a remarkable series, rayyan !
Where are we in the world ?
Steve, Thank you!
Rayyan, You sure get around!
How close were you to the scene?! Wow!
Steen, I think it is Benares, India on the banks of river Ganges. A lot of Hindus want to be cremated (this person was most likely a local) and the ashes scattered in the Ganges which is central (and scared) to the Hindu religion.
The man with the completely shaven head is possibly the eldest son of the diseased performing the last rites and the man with a tiny pigtail on his left is a priest.
Great photos from India, Rayyan. Very impressive colours. What camera and lens did you use?
Dehavilland Beaver. Cheers, Matt.

out of the Netherlands for the past 17 years. excellent place/people.
have to dig up my photo archives. great time have I had in your country.
off a shot.
The funeral pyre..incredible..I was in with them for a few shots, but erased
them later. Wife thought they were too distressing and insensitive. She is
correct. The smell of burning flesh shall be with me for the rest of my life.
Thanks for looking.
Beautiful + Excellent Composition, rayyan
