    Finally, my starship has come in!



    Alas, this young woman may have to wait a bit longer for hers.

    Not quite though, sign of modern times is surpinsingly less the clothing (under relatively bad weather?) than how so many people seems looking down. Irony of our consumer communications era?
    (though at least in one case it seems to be a good ol' fashionned Scrabble board...)
    Well done!
    Corlan: Thanks. These are the primo seats. The water's just behind me. Those people in front probably got there in the morning. It rained earlier and then nothing but high clouds during the fireworks. The two with the scrabble board look like they're half asleep.

    Wow. Loving the look of these.

    Matt, dude! Washington State Fair?!? "Do the Puyallup." Biggest single event in Washington. (Ok, I think it's officially the "Western Washington State Fair", but I'd say that counts.)

    Matt: To me the color version seems to capture more of the feel of the occasion more than the bw version. But that's just me. Well captured.

    Best.

    MATT: Thanks for your comment! The State Fairs (several held each year in different parts of the state) have become more like what I think of as carnivals. A bit seedier with a higher proportion of fried dough to 4-H animals than the "country" fairs held later in the Fall. Kids seem to like them, but I find my tolerance for trash gets smaller each year.

    Matt, was the gathering on the set for Planet of the Apes?
    Still partial to the fabulous previous B&W previously posted (a top keeper in my book), though Rayyan's right, these two might deliver more of the actual feel of the day.

    One thing you couldn't stage was the little girl's look, and you sure got it right. No question they were happy with the shot!

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    Hey Steve, so you did not forget the cameras!
    Sounds like you had a good time over there. Photos are all nice, overall the b&w processing is top notch as usual.

    Personal favorite is the first one, an instant classic (note: before printing i might crop/clone out the two "distracting elements" on the far right hand side). Next is #2, swarming with details and an sumptuous silver rendering. Wow.

    Fun composition on #3, and light spectacular on the following one -i'll let others comment on the center subject there #5's a Steve M. classic -though i'm partial to the Bostonian versions you've posted before (maybe this style carries more impact in a urban environnement? just thinking out loud).

    The whole set from the narrows is just great!
    (i'll cherrypick #9)

    Thanks C! Good eye on the needed crop on the first one ,right side!
    An ND filter would have come in handy too! Appreciate you taking the time Brotha!

    Osman, thanks a lot. the curved knife is from the southern part of the country,
    used as an ornament ( nowadays ) and the word sounds similar to ' cenbiye ' but more as ' genbiye '.

    Lloyd, Corlan: Grateful to you both for stopping by.

    None of this is mine!!

    The photos were taken by Ayesha in the old ' souk '. I did some layers and gradients. 2 layers of filters did the rest.

    Thank you all.

    That is a big

    Now why am I not surprised that you took it? I can almost feel and hear the camera click on that one with you behind the camera.

    Excellent work, honestly.

    Rayyan, of course you're right. Only that c is pronounced as g in Turkish, that's why it is differently spelled here. Thank you.

    Steve: Outstanding! PP and IQ excellent on all!
    1. Great capture; cool bike/biker; very textural paving; fried dough pizza...yummy!
    2. beautiful light emphasizing the tooling on the saddle; nice framing
    3. well seen; clever juxtaposition of the cut-out and the horse
    4. dramatic sky and light; well-balanced composition;"B&W" magazine fine art!
    5. great lines, shadows & light flare; people in mid-foreground perfect
    6. nicely framed and composed; contrast in their clothing makes the background and bridge seem lighter - makes them stand out
    7. Nice lines and texture; the walkway and stair have an Escher graphic quality that works well with the 'naturescape'
    8. Where was the Sierra Club when they built this! I'm guessing they probably didn't exist when they built the first walkways here in the 1800's? Great detail and perspective.
    9. Nice capture; love photos of photographers; almost a vicarious pleasure
    10. Beautiful texture and moving water.

    Terrific series. BTW, where is this?

    Cheers, Matt

    5. great lines, shadows & light flare; people in mid-foreground perfect
    6. nicely framed and composed; contrast in their clothing makes the background and bridge seem lighter - makes them stand out
    7. Nice lines and texture; the walkway and stair have an Escher graphic quality that works well with the 'naturescape'
    8. Where was the Sierra Club when they built this! I'm guessing they probably didn't exist when they built the first walkways here in the 1800's? Great detail and perspective.
    9. Nice capture; love photos of photographers; almost a vicarious pleasure
    10. Beautiful texture and moving water.

    Terrific series. BTW, where is this?

    Cheers, Matt

    Matt, thanks for taking the time! The Flume is in Franconia Notch, NH. 3hrs north from my house. Love to fly all the gang in & head up there for a photographer's shmorgasborg!

    Lloyd: Thanks. (insert big grin here) You're right, the "Puyallup" is still there, but i feel the same way about it as Tim feels about their "State" fairs.

Kids seem to like them, but I find my tolerance for trash gets smaller each year....
    Tim: Me too! Unless, it's trash i've never seen before.

    Lloyd: Beautiful family portrait. Well captured. I like the "brightness" in the photo. Nothing's overexposed, but it seems "light". "Future's bright" kind of light (sounds goofy when I write it down). Well composed with the space to right and left. (insert thumbs up here)

    Still partial to the fabulous previous B&W previously posted (a top keeper in my book), though Rayyan's right, these two might deliver more of the actual feel of the day...
    Corlan: Thank you. (insert big smile here) The inflatable Statue of Liberty head is always there. I don't know if it's put there by the event organizers , or somebody brings it from home. Everybody in Seattle has one in there basement.

    Corlan: You momentarily threw me back. "West" is South of where I am. Then, I realized that you're "West" of Riga. I now view France differently: cowboy hats and boots, horses and cattle, John Wayne.
    The light and tonality in this photo's exquisite. It has a timeless quality. (insert thumbs up here)

    Steve: Very cool! They're each unique. I probably like #1 the most for the way she's moving towards the rocks and the path of the light. Well done. You're always doing something different with your photos. Stylistically similar, but, a comfort zone that you continually step out of.

    Following on the water theme. One from this morning. Sort of the calm before the storm. This is the swim area for this morning's triathlon.

    Steve: Thank for the info. I just read that it was discovered in 1808 and that it's natural. Amazingly vertical cut! Also said that State Park was one of the 10 best in the country. It'd be fun.

    Lloyd: Beautiful photo. I know nothing about triathlons; other then the run/bike/swim bit. Also, that Lance is going back to it next year. I'm assuming that Mimi was competing?
