Fun with Nikon Images 2021

It's been a long time since I posted in the fun-with-Nikon thread. Pretty much exclusively analog these last few years (F6 though - go look at the analog forum!), and much less of that than there should have been as I dealt with some medical threats. It's been, quite literally, years since I tried to use a digital Nikon, and I see that in the meantime I have been (perhaps irreversibly) damaged by my dabblings in 10x8 film. So I went to check on the builders' progress at the house we should have moved into 18 months ago. And instead of a normal photo, I ended up with this:


Nikon D850, AF-S Nikkor 24-85mm 1:3.5-4.5G VR

I may try to overcome this, but I am sworn to avoid the over-manipulated HDR nonsense. I'm a film person born and bred, and trying to find a place in the digital world now and then while I still spend 90% of my time developing film.

I honestly don't know many of us who came from film that don't "avoid the over-manipulated HDR nonsense." I dislike it myself, but I suspect many believe it's a way to add interest to an otherwise droll image. To me it's "lipstick on a pig."

Came across this bobcat on Saturday while on a walk just minutes from my home. I was photographing a tree when I heard the crows having a conniption around me, I looked over to my right to discover this bobcat looking back at me. I was just able to pan my camera over, lock focus (@ 24mm :LOL:) and grab a few captures before it turned and quickly walked away. Not the best capture but I was happy with the performance of my camera to at least get this...

D850 w/24-70mm E | f5.6 @ 1/50th ISO800

wonderful pictures, Bernard!
Thank you very much!

These were captured 2 days after my Z7II and 105mm f2.8 S took a full dive in a river together with me. It still suffered damage with a cost of 650 US$, but kept working well enough to capture these. :) Quite remarkable really.

Cheers,
Bernard
