Some of the parade consisted of floats, and a young lady was standing on the side of such a float, dressed as a statue. She enjoyed posing for the camera. Nikon D2Xs. 17 - 55 mm lens. EXIF details - f 3.3 at 1/160.

    Second photo - reflections from a multi-storey building, which seems to have copper-colored glass. A nice challenge. 70 - 200mm. EXIF is f9.5, 1/60.

    Both processed in Capture One, with minimal modification.

    Cheers,

    John
    Great stuff, John. Thanks for sharing.

    Nice "statue", John. Any idea what the reason for the parade was?

    Testing the S5 Pro on a gorgeous day, made to make us believe in spring again - for a day or two. But; the aftermath of winter can also look good - and the S5 seems to handle it well. Nikkor-S 1,2/55 AIŽd

    Jorgen - I will check tomorrow - people at work will know. It seemed to be regional promotions of some kind, and the parade went along Sukhumvit from Emporium through to Siam.

    Cheers,

    Thanks, Lloyd! Actually, the only thing I really did in Aperture, was correcting white balance a bit - they were even bluer ... :-)

    Watched Formula One today with some friends. We all had pole position, and only consumed biodegradable fuels

    Yes, but were you running Kinetic Energy Recovery Systems? And if not, did you all have to take naps after your energy was depleted?

    Anyway, looks like you all had a good time. This would be a great way to watch Formula I, with food and some friends. (It comes on at 1:30 am where I live, so I seldom watch it. And frankly, I sort of lost interest during the "Formula Ferrari" era, when it became glaringly obvious that rules and penalties were being manipulated for the benefit of certain teams. I wonder how much success Brawn will be permitted before that starts to happen again...?)

    No problem for Brawn. Richard Branson is a personal friend of Bernie Ecclestone....

    No, but there is a bar of a more lewd character around the corner, for emergency cases

    Jorgen - It was a festival, bringing counry handicrafts to the attention of the city, as far as I can determine. Very colorful.

    Thank you. I went to National Stadium today. Big Otop fair. Probably a part of the same thing.

    A trip upcountry today, to take photos of some technical installations for a friend and customer. One of those people who, as opposed to myself, can concentrate on more than two things simultaneously.

    I was at an HP Press Event in Beverly Hills, CA last week (on the corner of Wilshire & Rodeo - pronounced "roe-day-oh" - Drive). They put us up at a 5 star hotel (The Beverly Wilshire) and have quite possibly ruined every other hotel in the world for me. The hotel courtesy shuttle was a Rolls Royce!

    Here is a shot of the lobby...

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    On my way from Bang Na to Sam Rong today, I took one of the local buses, those that start at See Eeam and end up in Pak Nam. Being the only passenger on the bus, I couldn't help noticing that everything looked very clean and tidy, and even the wooden floor was shining.

    So I asked the conductor if the bus was new, and he answered that this was indeed a brand new bus (although I suspect that the truck chassis that the bus was built upon wasn't as new as the cabin on top, at least judging from the interesting sounds from the gear box).

    Here's your chance then, if you want to take a ride in a brand new bus in Thailand, with a very friendly conductor. Just stand on the corner at Bang Na with your eight baht ready, and wait until you see something shiny, new coming down Bang Na Trad road. That's your transport for today, wooden floor and all.

    I went to the Bangkok Motor Show yesterday. There are two of them annually, and they are both extremely popular, particularly among men with cameras who take photos of.... the girls Even the motoring magazines have more photos of girls than of cars and motorbikes after the show, and why not? The streets are full of cars anyway.

    Jorgen, I really like the speed shapes. Very interesting.

    I was wondering what criteria you use to decide between the D80 and the S5? Do you usually carry them both along with you every day?

    Good question. I wish I knew myself. Sometimes, I change camera several times before I'm even out of the door

    The main rule is that I use the D80 when I need the extra resolution and the S5 for people and street. Since I have a vertical grip for the D80, I also tend to use it with heavy lenses. The D80 will also usually give better results with lenses of lower quality, like the Nikkor 70-300 ED. But the most important rule is this:

    There are no rules. I try to get the best results with whatever camera I take.

    I do prefer the S5 though, due to colours, WB, DR and a more "natural" look. If I have time, I will go back to the Motor Show with the S5 and hunt for more interesting shapes (and girls ).

    For paid jobs, I usually bring both, both for backup and because I use them differently. In a controlled environment, particularly if I can use a tripod, I tend to choose the S3 over the S5 though. There's something about the files from that camera...

    Did that make sense?

    Yes, that was a very thoughtful answer and I appreciate it. I've wondered about this for a while.

    Testing a friend's new camera (Nikon D90...not bad!).

    Mount Redoubt approaching ash cloud and ash falling over Turnagain Arm. These photos were taken about an hour apart.

    Thanks!

    I believe these were both taken with the 18-105 VR DX lens...nothing special really. Hand held, on the run (we were trying to avoid the ash fall).

    From my brief use of the D90, I thought it was a pretty nice DSLR.

    I've got a bunch of manual focus non-AI and AIS Nikkor prime lenses.....any suggestions on which Nikon DSLR would work well with these?

    The D90 is very nice. Even the D80 is nice, and the D90 is improved, not least with a much better sensor. It won't meter with the old non-AF lenses though. You need a camera body with a one or three digit number for that. D200/300/700 or D2H/2X/3/3X will do it. Those cameras also have a decent viewfinder making manual focus easier.

    Be aware also that some (all?) older, pre-AI lenses can't be used, and may cause damage to you camera, unless they're converted to AI. I don't remember the details, but I think there's a complete overview at nikonians.com.

    I use mine on a Fuji S5 at the moment (just got the camera), but the solution IŽm going to ad is the D700. Have uses several AI/AIŽd/AIs lenses on a test camera - very nice indeed. (The portrait in my second post is with an 1,2/55 from 68 or 69. Lovely pics, by the way. We have great looking mountains to - but they look different! :-)

    More happy with the files from my Fuji S5 each time I check them out. This one of my mother was taken in window daylight. The color version is pale and lacking in colour brilliance here, the BW too light - after Save for web in PS. This very often happens. I think IŽll start taking them directly out of Aperture. BW version is Aperture/SilverEffex plug in.
    Nikkor 1,2/55 at f2, I think

    Ah.... of course, I forgot to mention the S5

    Nice photo, Leif. I actually like the b&w version. I've stopped using the "Save for web" function, unless I need a very small file. I save at quality 9 to get as much detail as possible, at least on a forum like this.

    Leif,
    Both are nice, but I think the color captures your Mom's delicate coloring and seems more feminine to me. Love the way the S5 cpatures people.

    Thanks both of you! Cindy, you may be right about the color one. I normally have less patience with color ...

    Had a go at food photography today, a new and interesting experience. The best thing was that I was allowed to eat all the food after making the photos

    It gives the expression "Will work for food" a totally new meaning

    A time ago i learned, that most food and/or food arrangements for potography are made NOT by nature but by food stylists and they will make them from wood, silikone, wax or other non-tasty stuff
    But yours were real ???? WOW

    I read about that in one too. Some bubbly drink images were actually colored gelatin with the little bubbles added via a glass pipette. Definitely not in the edible category by any stretch of the imagination.

    Very nice, Jorgen. It does indeed look good enough to eat... and I'm impressed that it was actually edible stuff, as others have pointed out it often isn't.

    Even on the occasions when it is real food, there are "food stylists" who are there with spray bottles and such to keep it looking fresh. It drys out quick under those lights.
