    Quite an unusual angle on the assembly shot. Don't know why, but i can't help smiling figuring you with the equipment being carried around the facility
    by the conveyor belt, on your back, shooting. Modern Times revisited Humanity crusading in the pursuit of happiness, they said.
    Fascinating thought, Corlan, but I have to disappoint you. It's an assembly plant and mostly manual.

    As for the highlights in the other one; I wish I could say that I had control, but I don't. Fortunately, the D80 sensor seems to clip all colours at around the same level, avoiding colour casts in the border areas. It's a good low-ISO sensor. But I simply don't see a replacement for the Fuji cameras that is within my economical means. The difference when recovering highlights on a Fuji file and a Nikon file is so enormous you won't believe it unless you see it. I'm considering a D700, of course. Isn't it Christmas soon?

    Another one:

    This morning, I was visiting a truck factory to take a couple of group portraits from the production. When I arrived, I was offered the grand tour and no limits. Two hours later, I came out, soaking wet from sweat, with a couple of hundred photos. Here are two, one production line-up, and one shot taken lying on the floor under a truck during assembly. Great fun!

    Unfortunately, I only brought the D80 with Tamron 17-50 and no tripod. The Fuji would have loved that place, with all its weird lighting and tough contrasts.

    D80 with Tamron 17-50 @ 50mm and f/4.5



    D80 with Tamron 17-50 @ 50mm and f/2.8

    Jorgen: Splendid. The framing, lighting and compositions are brilliant.

    Chasing lenses or chasing a passion...

    Rayyan, I am fed up with carrying lenses for you. Take something you only can
    carry this trip, she said.

    1 prime lens, 1 Nikon camera: 3 weeks scandinavia.....








    Did I miss many? My glass is half full. What about yours.

    These are great shots, Rayyan! These two are my favorites, but you really have some art here! As are the first group. And I'd say you really lacked for nothing, lens-wise.

    And you make a good point. One most of us, myself certainly, seem to forget. My father bought a Leica IIIc in Germany in 1946. It came with a Summitar 5cm f2. It was the only lens he ever owned. I'm in the process of going through some old slides my mother gave me, and I'm very much impressed with the range of photography they exhibit.

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    Colors and Light, People and Places. Capturing the Essence.
    Terrific work Rayyan.

    Two remarks: you're among the very few people out there from whom the HDR style/look is not perceived as a gimmick but on the opposite as an asset to a style. Then, the limited number of lens is clearly not an issue when it comes to making good photographs (of course depending on a specific task or assignment, can't shoot a hummingbird with a 20mm on a FF body...), and in Lloyd's father example, HCB & al there are fantastic images from one-lens photographers. In time i even find that, esp with primes it helps one to become a more accomplished photographer. And yes, all the less to carry around for everyone

    You're way too modest.
    Too bad for the conveyor (though i had noticed the "manual" rails), that was an fun thought.

    Definitely can see it better from the Assembly Line shot, though. Impressive engine. Lots and subtle details there, too.

    D700? They'll soon be available much less than they used to be. Will get one again then -i simply couldn't justify having both bodies considering the excellent resale value i got on the D700 when getting the D3X. I'm pretty sure you'd love it (especially with the last FW).

    No news from a FF S7??

    Rayyan, about the Scandinavian series (had to leave when writing the previous post): my favorites are the same two as quoted by Lloyd above, to which i'll add the lock&dranpipe, the lamp posts (very "parisian"), and the oranje street, where the single character wearing a hat brings a nice touch. Same with the heartful cappucino. Well, all of them are real nice.

    Many good photos from Scandinavia, Ryyan. I particularly like these two. The first one looks like Karl-Johan in Oslo... or Stortingsgaten. At least the weather is typical Oslo, if my memory serves me right Must be late April or early May.

    Love the portrait. Perfect framing, angle and light.

By the way historically it's not that far off Memorial Day since originally here it was intended to honor mothers who had lost their sons and husbands at war. Numbers were in the millions back then (for a much smaller population) so pretty much all families were concerned. Hopefully history will stop repeating itself and mankind will wise up, in time.

    Nice set above. Like the light in the first one and the horizontal, clean composition, the movement in the second, contrast in the third. The seagulls are just cool =
    Corlan: Well said. Couldn't agree more! Thanks for your considered comments on my photos.

    Rayyan: I'm behind on this thread, and I'm at work (behind here too) looking at your beautiful Scandinavian photos on a 15" MacBook Pro. Consider me echoing and unabashedly agreeing with everybody's positive comments! Your photos always capture a moment that's part of a story. Well done! Cheers, Matt

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    Happy Memorial Day (and thanks to all who serve on our behalf)!

    It feels a bit rude to just pop in here and post a few photos without commenting on the work that comes before me. Alas, too much to do and I'm way behind.

    Here are a few from this morning's parade.

    Best,
    Tim

    Here are a few from this morning's parade.

    Three perfect moments, Tim.

    (and the technical quality is flawless, as usual)

    Love the three of them, the subtle beauty of the first one, then the refreshing, genuine smile. Though there's something gripping (can't find the exact word) about the last one that draws my eye, and my mind, back at it...

    Such a gracious group here. Thanks, all of you. And for the record, when the parade started and the vets began to march, the crowd applauded. It was impossible to avoid tearing up. A very emotional moment for all involved. Both the proud and happy who marched and the spectators on the sidewalks shared a sense of pride and relief for the ones who were present and able, and a sense of loss for those who weren't. It must certainly be the same regardless of country.

    Peace,
    Tim

    Across the street from the waterfront in my earlier post, there's a very steep bluff with houses, and apartments at the base. Some of them are pretty funky, reminiscent of when this was a "bohemian" beach area. The hill behind one has a pagoda-like gazebo, sculpture, flamingos, and a goat 9very happy looking goat)! Thanks for looking. Cheers, Matt

    Kewl shots, Matt. I didn't realize flamingos gathered the Pacific Northwest this time of year. BTW, that goat does look happy. Wonder what he knows that we don't?

    Lloyd: Don't usually see them this time of year. These flamingos weren't very active? A household's allowed to keep one goat within the city limits. Probably happy because there are no other goats to share with.

    Cheers, Matt.

    Tim: Lovely capture. A fitting and minimal tribute one can offer to those
    that served with honor and sacrificed their life for their country.

    Thank you for sharing.

    Grandpa, what did you do in Praha? asked Mariam.
    Well, it is a beautiful place; with castles, old streets, museums, music...

    Did you see all those places? says Mariam. No, your grandma did.


    Are the people nice, grandpa? Of course, sweetheart..if you get close and
    start talking to them. I said.


    Mariam, do you think I am old? Nooooo!

    Neither did some of others. get close. say ' Hi '. Jorgen, my friend...no need to chimp!!
