    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    I shacked up in a simple ' hotel ' for a couple of days. There was no room service. As a matter of fact we had to service the rooms!

    After the morning drill, the mental exercises started.

    How are you finding your stay with us, asked the host.

    Hard floor, no hot water, early wake up calls, I said..

    Grasshopper, said my host, it's all in the mind..

    Me, ' grasshopper ' ?

    He looked at me and started laughing. I laughed and clicked.

    A couple of street shots taken in Sydney. Both with a Nikon D90 and 18-105mm kit zoom.

    Thanks Lloyd and Matt. I must admit I didn't see them as matched sets. Sometime good stuff is accidental.

    Steve, excellent captures. At least you could have warned me before taking my photos early in the morning. Not at my best you know.

    #1 though I can send off to the matchmakers.

    Thanks pal for the favor.

    Agree, that is beautiful! ^ The landscape looks like Norway (Lofoten maybe?), but not so sure about the buildings.

    Lloyd, Helena thank you so much. Yes madam, coming from Trondheim, you are correct.

    It is Norway between Boda and Sandnessjoen. Indeed it is a beautiful country and a lovely people.

    Lloyd, Helena thank you.

    Thanks a lot Lloyd. This was taken in a Hindu Temple in Nepal. D700 + zf 100/2.

    I tend to underexpose a bit; this might give a more saturated look to the capture. Just a tad -1/3 or so. If shooting raw, I know I can bring the shadows up a little if needed.

    PPwise, I use the blend modes a lot and the opacity control. I have been rightly told not to over sharpen. Blame that on my eyesight!

    Grateful to you sir. Regards to you and yours.

    Old lenses part II

    Nikon 35MM 2.8 PC

    When processing the image I could find no CA even in the highlight areas. As you can see, the color rendering is quite nice, dare I say it? a Leica-like glow.

    Thank you too! It's beautiful up there. I have only visited once and definitely plan to go back some day.

    This thread is so inspiring. I don't own a Nikon but visit this thread now and then just to admire the work you all do.

    The ironic thing is that I AM at Disneyland Paris for a corporate event at the moment. That's my idea of hell btw.
