    I talked about myself, my family, my kids, my home. They told me about theirs.

    They told me about things to photograph in the mornings.

    I told them I was not much interested in the beautiful masonry.

    I had come to know, hear, feel and respect the masons. They understood.

    I take a few photographs of your family?

    Should we stand outside?, he said.

    No Raj, I said. Stay where you are.

    I shall come close.

    Yes, Steve is right. Rayyan, it is always a pleasure to witness the fruits of your mastery, both in images and words. Coincidentally, I had planned to start my photographic tour tomorrow from Sirkeci and end it somewhere near the Kapalıçarşı (Covered Bazaar). Those rails shall mean more to me...

    Thanks.

    Rayyan: Just as Steve and Osman have said, it is indeed always a pleasure. And the words you include always add a great deal to the images. That portrait of Raj and the girl is something very special, but the story makes it even more so.

    Jason, these Miso portraits are as good as it gets. I'll go for the first one above, though like Steve i kinda like the last one with the snoot, too.

    A wow shot indeed, Steve. From the main subject to composition including the dual contrasting background (clear stone and colorful leaves). Terrific!

    Rayyan: upon seeing your photos on the previous page i was planning a comment but i'll stick to seconding Lloyd's quote just above, following Steve and Osman remarks. Couldn't say it better. Splendid shots, and wonderful words.

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    Old friend rediscovered. I came across my old 25-50/f4 lens in the back of my camera storage. I haven't used it in a number of years, but it was a favorite landscape lens. Pulled it out, put in on the D3, and shot this from the front yard. Pretty much straight out of the camera, at 25mm f11. Serious distortion with the horizon in the bottom of the frame, and there is a polarizer on the lens, which gave me some ugly vignette. But I love the way this lens draws. Gonna have to give it some more work.

    edit: probably some time needed to work properly with the lens characteristics, but the colors and local contrast are really interesting, with an analog touch. Interesting. Please post some more when ready!

    The colors are gorgeous as is the neighborhood. The distant hills are well

    The sky is glorious with the color as it should be. Vignetting, yes but let's see after you remove the filter.

    A fine picture Lloyd. Mighty fine.

    j: Great image. You have some very interesting rolling stock in Wales. I always thought that there were only two gauges of track: standard and narrow. A quick look at Wikipedia shows I was really wrong!

    Where do you want them to look? asked Raj.

    Let them look at you Raj. You look at them. Let both of you look at each other.
    And let each of you look up to each other.

    Matt (now we have two Matt for the price of one! ) this is georgeous. Perharps not as decayed as sometimes in your work, but definitely old, dusty, abandonned.

    Great to see you around, we missed you!

    This latter addition to the Raj family series is on par with the rest: broken record i know, but... NG worthy.

    The eyes in this whole set of yours are definitely spectacular... sometimes, "out of this world" has a special resonance.

    Lloyd... the distortion on that shot works great! Never even heard of that lens before. Lovely!

    Matt, capturing the kid is wonderful. Another great 70-300 shot. Hmm...

    Viablex.. a nikormat! Fantastic! Lovely capture.

    Rayran.. I could spend days just going through your photo archives! Amazing stuff!

    The eyes in this whole set of yours are definitely spectacular... sometimes, "out of this world" has a special resonance.

    I love contrasts. Light and shade. wet and dry. hard and soft. Why?

    How can one appreciate the day if there was no darkness? Age without the youth?

    Use contrasts..it is the norm; it gives meaning to life. It shall give meaning to
    your photographs.

    We discovered this fledgeling Barred Owl in the woods behind the house today. It stayed there, unafraid, long enough for me to return to the house and grab my camera. I wish I'd grabbed the tripod too since it was in the dark of the forest on a dark day. My guess is that the parents were nearby and only waiting for the humans to depart so they could rescue their baby.

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    Friday's post to my daily blog. D700 + Nikon 35mm f2.0 at 2.0. This was a torture test for flair which I liked well enough to post. Exposing differently from the same angle checks for purple fringing and CA. I find with the Nikon that I'm often dialing down post processing - the images require very little sharpening and extremely retrained use of the clarity and vibrance sliders. Some of the images on this thread look over-processed to me.

    I talked about myself, my family, my kids, my home. They told me about theirs.

    They told me about things to photograph in the mornings.

    I told them I was not much interested in the beautiful masonry.

    I had come to know, hear, feel and respect the masons. They understood.
    This is fantastic. I appreciate the background commentary as well. Did I miss the exif? What was this image created with? Love the grain texture. Thank you for sharing this story.

    rayyan/Celtic Steve/Corlan/Blackhawk Jason: Gentlemen, thank you!

    Jason: That lens is a bargain for what you get!

    rayyan: +1, +1, +1. As everybody said, your last three photos and narrative were great! Please collect a series of these with your narratives and create a Blurb book. It'd be great to see them together.

    Cheers, Matt

    Tim: Nice capture. It does have that "where's my mommy" look.

    John: Really appreciate your kind comments. Off hand: d300, zf 35, f=2.8-4;
    iso= 1250-1600, jpg. Converted to bw in Alienskin ' Exposure ' set for neopan 1600 ( I think ! ). This is what I would do now.

    Matt: I am grateful. I have downloaded the Blurb sw. have not worked it
    much but looks excellent for me.

    Re: the Sherpa. More power to him. I know what it takes. 7 summits in 42 days is way beyond my abilities or courage. Really a stupendous achievement.


    Thank you folks for your encouragement.

    Tim: Don't know much about owls.

    This is a beautiful image which captures the bird's intelligence and beauty.

    Thanks for sharing.
