    Steve, this one is fantastic!
    Really love it... for the exact same reasons as Matt.

    Generally speaking i prefer the latter set using the silhouette theme, a less obvious/explanatory form than the photo in the first set (though the light was unique).

    Thank you kindly, Rayyan.
    Nostalgic is exactly how i was feeling when taking the photo. End of a cycle, probably...

    The light and tonality in this photo's exquisite. It has a timeless quality. (insert thumbs up here)

    Cheers, Matt

    Thanks a lot for the kind comment

    But Matt my friend, you might consider reviewing your geography
    Did not check, but i'll take the risk and bet you're actually a good couple of degrees... south.
    You lucky beast -so much sun for free all year round

    (seriously, flat maps are quite misleading... for one i rmeember being flabbergasted a couple of decades ago when i first heard someone argue that NYC and Madrid roughly shared the same latitude )

    Wonderful, peaceful, and beautifully composed, Lloyd. Really.

    Btw isn't it the same place where you took the "famous" race photo published in a magazine without prior consent, posted some time ago?
    (it was excellent, too).

    This is nice Matt (not absolutely sure about the crop, though )
    Question: reading ISO800 1/320s... do you use auto-ISO?

    IMHO these are among your very best posted here, Leif.

    Scenery, composition and light (not only striking but falling exactly down on the sheep looking at you) makes the first one ("mersau 2") a keeper... no, a poster.

    Then the last one ("mersau 1") has a surreal tri-dimensionnality
    Be kind, tell us there's a lot of selective sharpening...



    (oh btw... i want another -working- S5 )

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    Many thanks, guys!
    There is, to answer your question Corlan, very little selective sharpening. A little overall and a little selective lightening and contrast manipulation in Silver Efex.
    My S5 was modified by the previous owner (the AA filter removed). I find it gives a great resolution boost and files good for BW conversion. The colour files are not very good, though - need some WB adjustment all of them.

    For me it works, though, I convert almost everything anyway.

    Leif, it sure works beautifully in b&w...

    (not sure about the whole fuss about removing AA filters on many cameras... exactly for the color rendition reason, whatever we can read here and there.

    Yes, Mimi competed. 2nd in her Division, and top 10 overall. She didn't feel like she did very well, but I thought otherwise.

    I'm impressed, Corlan. You have a great memory! Yes, same lake, and very near the same place. The prior shot (the one with appeared in the magazine) was taken in June 2007, and the one posted yesterday was taken yesterday morning. Thank you for the kind comments on both.

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    Mimi "tri-ing" yesterday morning: (Yes, she always smiles like that during a race. I asked her why once, and she said, "It's supposed to be fun, isn't it?" It's kind of become her trademark. During an Ironman event once, a friend told me he'd passed Mimi, and thought she was in trouble. I asked why he thought so, and he said, "she's not smiling.")

    About 10 miles into the bike portion:
    D3, 28-70/2.8 @ 28mm,1/1600, f7.1. ISO 500


    Here at about half way through the 10K run (and very sunburned, she forgot the visor she usually wears):
    D3, 70-200/2.8 @ 200mm/f2.8. 1/8000, ISO 200


    BTW, it was pretty hot for an early morning event. About 90F (32C) during the run, which at 6000 feet of elevation (~1830 meters), can be brutal.

    Sounds pretty brutal indeed... and not only the temperature.
    Great shots Lloyd (the bike one is terrific), and good story about the smile... what an incredible athlete she is!

    This is really terrific, Corlan. I like the color one as well, but this is special.

    Thanks for the kind words about the shots of Mimi. Much appreciated.

    D3, 70-200/2.8 @ 200mm/f2.8. 1/8000, ISO 200


    BTW, it was pretty hot for an early morning event. About 90F (32C) during the run, which at 6000 feet of elevation (~1830 meters), can be brutal.

    Thanks Matt!
    The comparison to Stuarts Iceland is actually very good. The conditions out there in the Atlantic are probably quite similar to those in the Norwegian mountains - above the tree limit, that is.

    That's a quite impressive series

    The one quoted above sounds like the global celebration upon the return of the Enterprise (or whatever name they gave in the sequels) after saving the universe fom the bad big black hole.

    Stunning, really.



    Roman: this is quite cool.
    Makes me want to find a nice creek like this one and quietly enjoy the water. Is it near your place?

    Great pictures (the entire series). Looks like quite the celebration. BTW, the control of light in the first group, including the one I've quoted, is most impressive.
