    Tweaked the "Summer Rains" image to make it more appealing (I think)

    Thank you Jorgen. Continuing along this canal (to the left, i.e. north-easterly) you will indeed end in Všnersborg before parting on Všnern, Swedens largest lake.

    pollution. I've seen them in Tokyo and Bangkok... even San Francisco. I asked a friend who moved from Tokyo, and said they're most common around areas with a lot of traffic.

    Nice panorama, Arne !
    But for some reason it is not enlarged when I click on it.
    I remember the same happened to me a long time ago when I tried to post a large photo like a thumbnail.
    It wasn't enlarged either. I never found out how to solve it.

    Thank you, Steen! Well, it doesn't get much enlarged when I click on it either, but at least the compression artefacts go away so it looks cleaner. FWIW I posted it as a 1500 pixel wide image.

    I guess "pollution" is the answer you'd get if you asked any of the girls wearing those masks in Hanoi, and that's absolutely the reason why some (but not many) wear them here in Bangkok.

    But Hanoi is a little countryside village compared to those cities, and with rather moderate traffic too. And why do only girls wear them?

    Me thinx it's a fashion statement, but I'll ask one of the pretty girls the next time I go there

    Thanks Jono, and once again, you've posted one of those intensely relaxed photos that almost make me wish I had a home

    Should it have had a little bit more DOF, for her face to be in focus as well?

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Arne,
    Your pano is beautiful. Jack has mentioned that attachments are sized down to 900 pixels (I believe). If you download to the gallery, then post the link (that is at the bottom of your picture) into the thread, one will be able to view the entire 1500 pixel photo when they click on it. I found that if I attached photos that were bigger than the 900 pixels, they had artifacts when viewed...this does not happen when I put them in the gallery first.
    Jono, That Blue is such a cute beast. Love the shot.
    Andree, What program did you use for the HDR photo?

    Then on the other hand, not everybody wear a face-mask, a raincoat or a helmet. For some, half the fun seems to be to get as wet as possible. In his position, I think I wouldn't care

    D80 @ ISO800, 85mm f/1.8 @ f/2.0, 1/60s. Sorry if the colours are a bit washed out

    Another great shot Jorgen. I can't believe they're barefoot on a scooter! And can we assume that you are also getting soaked while taking the shot?

    It rained for more or less 36 hours, so yes, I was, but I'm weather-sealed

    Thank you Cindy, very useful info that I wasn't aware of. I just posted the pano in the Gallery, it shows as a 1200 pixels image. Still much better than here. I'll keep this in mind when posting large photos.

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Arne,
    I happened to question this because I was posting 1200 pixel images as attachments. They looked properly sharpened on my monitor, but looked really crunchy and over-sharpened when they appeared here. Jack said that the forum software is not adding sharpening.... but it seems to add artifacts when it down-samples.
    I'll check out your image in the gallery.

    Photomatix Pro did a nice job and so did you. There are not the usual funky halos that a lot of HDR photos exhibit.

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Today, I visited my camera-pusher, just to see if he was well. And he was. He told me that he received 50 Fuji S5 three weeks ago. "That was a lot", I said, "how are you going to get rid of all of those". "No problem", said he, "I've sold all but 4 already".

    So now, I'm the lucky owner of a pink piece of paper, saying "Deposit paid.... bla, bla, bla.... Total price: the equivalent of $1,000 or thereabout."

    I'll pick it up in two weeks, after a friend of mine has bought my beloved Zuiko 11-22mm

    Here's a photo just to demonstrate that I really need this (yeah, right ). From the D80 and 85mm f/1.8, overexposed with blown highlights and all. Would neeeeever happen with a Fuji, or at least, that's what I want to believe at the moment

    Jorgen,

    I think you would make wonderful photos with any camera, but the Fuji does seem to fit your style. Congratulations on the soon to arrive S5.

    THAT is a mistake - I sold mine about 2 years ago, and I've always regretted it. Better to sell your D80 (or your grandmother).

    Love the rain shot - I love summer rain - preferably in shorts and a tee-shirt with an E3 over my shoulder!

    Jono, that makes sense. I don't really need 3 Nikon bodies, and the S3 will do fine as a backup for the S5. I'll sleep on it

    D80 with 85mm f/1.8 @ f/2.8

    Hi,

    Just registered today. Like many others, I own both an M8 and a Nikon D300.

    Am enclosing 2 fun pics taken recently. One is of two kids looking at my son's graduating class while they played ultimate frisbee. One asked who they were. I said high school kids at a picnic celebrating their graduation. He replied "I want to graduate too" as I snapped the photo.

    The other was taken at night from the deck of the Otesaga Resort in Cooperstown during a recent cycling trip.

    Enjoy & thanks to all for the help you constantly provide. Am not sure I uploaded correctly; we'll see.

    It's called a tap. The same method is used for maple syrup.

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Technically, the tube thingy is the tap. The bucket is a bucket. No special name. In English, a tap is any sort of device that releases fluids from a sealed container. Barrels & kegs are tapped to grant access to the fluids stored inside (usually wine or beer). Maple and other species of trees are tapped to access the sap which is turned into something useful (or yummy in the case of maple).

    Heck, when someone has excess fluid build up in the body, doctors use a surgical tap to drain the fluids off. Had that happen to me once. Now I know what a being a beer keg feels like!

    That last one is great, Jono. Reminds me of some British film from the 50's. Coming to think of it, it reminds me of all British films from the 50's

    Here's a family portrait, monkeys at the zoo watching photographers. D80 with Micro Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 @ f/4 and Tamron 1.4x

    One more. D80 with the 105 Micro plus 1.4x again (got to buy that 135mm....). No pp, just cropped to 90% and reduced to web-size (bicubic sharper).

    Absolutely NOT - it's my delightful brother in law borrowing his grand-daughter's hat.

    Nice tones in this one. What kind of b/w conversion do you use on D3 files?

    Hi There Jorgen
    Love family day - but 'rest' is even better.
    AS for the 50's films, the quote:
    "you might very well think so; but I couldn't possibly comment"
    comes from a 90's political drama in the UK:
    House of Cards
    if you haven't seen it, then you really should, it's readily available on DVD and very very good (both frightening funny and very very gripping).

    Hi Cindy
    glad you like it - conversion was the same as always - Aperture, monochrome mixer, followed by seat of pants!

    Jono,
    I recognised the quote, so I must have seen it, but I only remember vaguely. I'll look out for it. Can't hurt to see it again. I do like British films from the 50s and early 60s btw. There were some real personalities around then.

    Thank you for the comments. I had to think before I took the second one. Not the kind of motive that I usually "see".

    Aye! I'm guessing she's been trying to distance herself from that zippered leather catsuit for decades. It left its mark though!

    Hi Jorgen
    Lovely gentle colours I thought - fine composition, almost abstract. Definitely a winner!

    As for 50s and 60s british movies - I agree - all those lovely Ealing comedies (Kind Hearts and Coronets, the Ladykillers). We got a bunch of them on video a few years back, and the kids know them all off by heart.

    House of Cards is definitely worth another visit (three series I think). The other BBC winner (80's I think) was the Edge of Darkness (did you see that?)

    Just this guy you know
