    When your patience runs out..give a holler! Please.

    Thanks.
    Rayyan, looks like you have fun with the experimentations
    While i don't quite understand the Leica one (but that's probably because of the rangefinder subject which is obscure to me - just kidding, i'm well aware being surrounded by L addicts around here )... i like it.
    i'll follow Matt's lead and leave the Lacanian lingo out of the way.

    Now, love the treatment on Mariam's portrait, it really shines. Great job.
    Then again, the subject and photo are equally wonderful in the first place... splendid!

    Casual? Wonder what ' special ' would be like?

    Lovely, nice and easy, a ' casual ' but a ' special ' photograph.

    Matt, I really appreciate your kind words and the encouragement that you folks bring to the table.

    These last two posts are great. I esp. like the collage character of the second. I'm guessing that you didn't study Art in college, but you're very good.

    Corlan: Great composition, IQ and PP. Like the way the DOF is handled and the spatial arrangement. The bit of window frame establishes the background as exterior giving an expanded sense of depth. Studied and elegant image.

    Thanks Rayyan, Steve, Matt.


    Rayyan, nice sketchy experiment. Interesting way to arrange the pencils and shavings. With a tad more 3D feel, would probably make a good microstock image.


    Steve, though i do like unusual crops on daisies (), i'm partial here to the color shot where the dark center and tiny, star shaped yellow pistils (?) are just If cropped further, it could be titled "Yellow Stars on a Black Hole". Well, something like that...

    The colors just pop. The illusion of depth and focus plane is masterful.

    Not the same country, but it'd go well with the rice paddies shots Jorgen's recently posted...

    Splendid job on the lightning, and the drops are just perfect, Jonas.
    Got an inclination towards the bird, though? So cute, and well composed.

    OK you just dropped the board average age by a decade

    Fisrt shoot? So you're very lucky, or quite gifted. I'll opt for the latter

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    The dungeon of this XI-XII c. castle only got a wall left standing. These are views from the entrance, still have to fight my way into fields to get the -best for the dungeon- rear view. Will probably have to wait till after the harvest, it's quite a long walk on that other side.

    In the meantime...






    .





    Any preference, c&c?
    Have to go back there with the tripod, inadvertedly left home (well, actually someone emptied & cleaned the trunk ).

    Matt: Sincere thanks pal. Tried engineering..bad choice. Found an American
    Bank. Excellent choice. They were into Derivatives and Options and Hedges.
    They wanted people. I was available. I retired early..very early. They treated me good...very very good.

    Thank you Big American Bank...

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    Another one of my advantages is that I have a small one. People don't feel
    threatened by it. Also it forces me to get near. The smaller the better and nearer I say..


    I have been happy with mine so far..so have others.

    Steve: I can tell when you crop! You should leave the little black edges around the photo. That way, we can see that you respected the integrity of your vision at the moment of capture.

    Have to go back there with the tripod, inadvertedly left home (well, actually someone emptied & cleaned the trunk ).

    Corlan: At the moment, I'm partial to the second image. The vectors leading to the castle are stronger; seems more balanced and "complete" as a photo. On my laptop, the road and the wall in the first are very light and don't draw the eye in to a subject. Cool pp!

    Sometimes I have no choice. I have to use my big hun. I just show it to them so that they can get used to it being there.

    Putting the hood on depends on the situation. I personally do not like to hood it. Interferes with the ergonomics, becomes unwieldy. Another variable to contend with.

    But does protect the front end from damage and any untoward effects.

    It helps if you let them fondle your equipment. Makes it more personal. Of course I use sweet talk all the time...

    Corlan, i prefer the tone, reflection & greater distance to the castle of the 2nd one. Both extremely nice!

    Corlan: The ' antique ' treatment goes very well with the subject. I prefer the
    second one as that's what castles are in my imagination! Water, bridge, moat. knights, maidens. Your photo conjures up these ideas in my mind. That
    is what a photo should do.

    As to cleaning your trunk...I hope it was not some outsider!! If they did u a favor, u owe them thanks. Maybe a dinner with candles and your country
    wine.

    Steve, this is a beauty. But unfair to us that can only salivate over the 24/1.4

    Enjoy it in good health. The lens has found a worthy owner.
