    Exactly. in this regard it also reminded me of a "green wheat" shot posted a couple of weeks ago (notwithstanding the texture part you've noted), but it didn't want to make too many comparisons of the kind. Nothing ego related though, really, just how the mind works jumping from one concept to a similar one.

    +1 on both counts.

    And Jason, if not for the modern clothing (and the soy glitch, i guess ) this could be an magazine/billboard ad from the 50's

    This one's fantastic, Matt!

    (note: got what looks like a tad of a color cast on my monitor, at least for all the background part. But otoh, it's Sunday morning... and not enough :sleep006

    Oh btw: nice lens you're using in those gardens' shots

    Matt the neighborhood shots are rich, i particularly like the first and maybe even more the third one with its intricate lines and shades of light. Very nice.



    Btw the second one reminds me of a shot i posted some time ago, though there was a bee obstructing the view

    Nicely caught C!

    From a civil war reenactment today. I didn't even notice the scratches on her face until I downloaded the image.

    Nice shot, Tim. Sort of a Mona Lisa quality... hard to read her expression.

    Thanks Corlan! Civil war garb was everywhere. They all looked pretty hot in the noonday sun.

    Corlan: That's how the mind works.
    Jason's shot does remind one of a magazine ad from the 50's.
    And, thanks for the comment on that photo. I didn't have a better macro lens, so, I was forced to take that one along. Actually, probably none better on the Nikon! Although, there are some terriffic manual lenses. I don't notice the color cast on the laptop.

    Steve/Jason: Gentlemen, thanks you very much! (insert two big smiles here) It is a great lens for non-tripod, dinging, around macros. Corlan's last comment about the lens is because he has one. (insert wink here)

    Tim: Nice portrait. Beautiful color, pose and framing. It has a delicate quality to it; even with the war wounds. You're in Maine! Who plays the Southern side and which battle are they reenacting? edit: I just googled it. Looks like a big deal in Maine. Were you at Fort McClary?

    Cheers, Matt

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    Thanks Matt! It was Fort Knox on the Penobscot River. I'm afraid I'm not as knowledgeable about the specific re-enactment as I should be. Since the fort never saw any action or fired a canon in anger, my guess is that it was simply an excuse for the players to bring out all their gear and play.

    The gent with his thumb on the touchole made this canon himself. Loud!



    And lots of authentic-style headgear

    Indeed! I confess that I'm fascinated by the mud rig. Looks like it might be propane powered. What the heck is it for (and does it come with a cup holder?).

    Thanks guys. It does indeed run on gas, LPG, which Thailand has a lot of up in the Northeast. These are two-stroke engines with oil injection and they sound like machine guns when they're running.

    They are used for preparing the soil for the next rice crop. In the part of Thailand where the photo was taken this morning, some farmers get three crops per year, and all kinds of technology is used to speed up the process. Here's the next step, leveling the paddy field:

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    Tim, thanks for the story. Though partial to the wonderful girl portrait, the second set super nice, too. Like the heagear shot a lot. And personally, on the second portait i'd go for a square or 4*5 crop (with a tad of the new CS5 healig tool that you like so much, on the right hand side ). Nice series, would like to see more of them.

    (sidenote: are we supposed to be able to click on your images? Since you're using the new server we have the option (for larger size?) but at least here it returns a "private folder" message. Just in case... )


    Jorgen: splendid set and quite interesting info as always.
    From what i see here i'll opt for the "Level Work". Wait, now... nope, i'll ride the pink bike.

    P.S. the b&w version of Mud Power is very powerful as a standalone image.

    Thanks Corlan! I might try your suggestion.

    I've got a bunch from the fort, but it was an experimental day and I discovered something that, while interesting from a personal technique standpoint, made some of the best shots unusable. I have been in the habit of using the shutter priority mode and decided to try aperture priority mode. Normally, I am perfectly comfortable in S mode since it's become routine. I can adjust aperture as scene and light allows. But the switch to A screwed me up and I forgot I did it. Many of the best shots show camera shake. So live and learn, eh?

    As for the image size, I output the size you see here. It's a tasty size that seems to work in a variety of venues online. I've always disliked side-scrolling and when they get too big, it can happen.

    Sure, Tim.
    Size's good, i was simply wondering if the "Private Folder" was not the unwanted result of you being logged in so you couldn't guess the click was ineffective. Nothing wrong there, just a question

    And yes, it's never easy to change from one usual mode to another. Being the opposite, shooting in A mode as standard i'm well aware of that since i even prefer -and not rarely- using Manual than switching to "S". Probably have to work on that, though

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    Friday's post. Stalking a floral arrangement testing my new 70-200 f2.8 VR II. This lens, like its Canon counterpart (which I've shot extensively), is remarkable in every respect.

    Very nice Woody. Is that the VRII version? I surely love mine.

    Wonderful portrait, with a very timeless feel. Your subject reminds me of Papa Hemingway (albeit with a bit longer beard.)

    P.S. the b&w version of Mud Power is very powerful as a standalone image.
    Jorgen: +1. Very cool photos and description. That disabuses my vision of people hand tilling the rice paddies. Pink Bike's nice, too. Cheers, Matt

    Rayyan: Nicely done. I like the proportions of the black field and the three film frames. Cheers, Matt.
