    Matt - that's why I love Eastern Washington!

    If it weren't so far from a decent airport and cities I'd consider moving there myself. I take several pilgrimages to the Palouse & Wallowa's every year just for the photo ops.

    An hour by the Cathedral Square (the end)


    Forgot this one last time...

    "in the shadow"





    But, i wanted to dedicate this last part to another guy. His situation's probably the worse in that bunch, but he's the cool, silent type. Though we barely exchanged a dozen words, it's the kind of guy you feel comfortable hanging with. Looking at the photos, he has this special "real people" look.





    He loves his dog, and takes great care of him:

    Corlan: Nice set of photos. The guy "in the shadow" looks like a stalker. The portrait studies are cool. Like Steve said, the high key pp shots are striking. Distillation down to the key features.

    just looked through the last pages, so many fine pictures here, like:
    Corlan's Cathedral set and portraits, Hacker's Singapore F1, Graham's Jackson Lake Sunset, Matt's Prince Rupert and Eastern Washington sets, Steve's library set and Walk Softly, Jason's hound and Chicago streets, Jorgens cowbitt, Oliver's Nikon set (welcome Oliver ), and those I may have missed to mention ...

    and congratulations on your new Pike Place Market book, Matt

    Thanks Steve, Don, er... Matt , Oliver, Steen. Much appreciated.


    Matt i like the atmosphere of the B&Ws above. Sounds "your" version of the windmills are more modern than the ones we have here. Sturdier for sure, but you've certainly got gustier winds, too.



    Steen, like the simplicity of the harbor photo. Lots of details, nice color palette, and there's always a sense of calmness in your shots... i like that, too.

    The hour by the cathedral was well over that afternoon... on the way back home though, driving the small country roads i still got one last shot.

    Guess i'm not used anymore to hang around too many people for too long, and noticing that lone tall tree from a distance offered another perspective. Had to walk in the freshly harvested fields for nearly 30 minutes to get the right angle, but enjoyed the ambient serenity, and silence.
    Last shot of the day then...

    Corlan, LOVE this! I also like that you mentioned the time you took to get that shot.

    That part is never stated (not that it has to), but soooo many people think great shots just sort of happen. Some do, but most don't. It's that type of patience and diligence that makes the difference between a good shooter and a great photographer.

    Corlan: Thanks. The winds come up from the Columbia River Gorge and are pretty steady. The bridge across the river at that point can be dicey. I haven't been over there in a while, and, will have to go back when I have more time...At least get off the I-90!

    Corlan: Beautiful pano. You can feel the mist and the quiet. The aspect really accentuates the openness of the field and the isolation of the tree. The tone further softens the photo. Very relaxing to stare at on the screen. 30 minutes? You couldn't just take it from the road and move on?

    Cheers, Matt

    Osman, Steen, Jason, Steve, Matt -i truly feel humbled by your kind words.

    It was a lovely day.

    Jason made a very good point, and that's definitely one aspect on which i have to reflect on and improve. Indeed if i was less the lazy type, i would've carried a tripod along.

    (that is, if it was in the the trunk. )

    Matt, don't know how, even when quoting (more or less, depending ) serious reference material, you always manage to sound full of tongue in cheek humor. Excellent


    The shot is really lovely.

    And to say the truth, it reconciles me a bit with the D3S. Till today and for a few exceptions, i've not been convinced yet. Probably my fault, and considering of course that super high iso performance's not among my personal criterias.

    (and for some reason, it seems that the few people with this body wants to ply for a funkier processing than needed -or expected)

    The other two? Well, classic Steve M. ....

    Corlan...

    It's for that reason alone (relearn patience and the importance of nailing the right shot, not just a shot) that I've started shooting medium format film again.

    Only problem with that is I need to learn how to scan!!

    At least we're already making an effort shooting almost exclusively Zeiss manual focus lenses (or even full manual such as PC & Contax modified).

    Next step: more tripod
    So i keep saying at least

    (kudos on the MF analog setup - entertained the idea but eventually did not have the patience myself. Plan to do that later though, if film's still available...)

    Steve: Nice set of photos. Except for #1 and #3, disparate in content. #2 is excellent. The angle, color, and perimeter shadow really make a great image. #4 is another of your thoughtful captures. Great B & W.

    Jason: Will we see your work in the analog section. Shooting film is excellent exercise for "nailing the right shot".

    Matt, don't know how, even when quoting (more or less, depending ) serious reference material, you always manage to sound full of tongue in cheek humor. Excellent
    The shot is really lovely.
    And to say the truth, it reconciles me a bit with the D3S. Till today and for a few exceptions, i've not been convinced yet. Probably my fault, and considering of course that super high iso performance's not among my personal criterias.
    (and for some reason, it seems that the few people with this body wants to ply for a funkier processing than needed -or expected)
    Corlan: Thanks. I looked for a little info and found that this carousel was a big deal. Pedantic is always funny. Sorry, It was with the D700 that I just sent back. I think that it's a little soft at the white horse. Probably me and the lens. The D3s would have been better, IMHO. I believe that I've done some "funky" processing with D3s photos. Now you've challenged me.

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    Hi Folks..

    Lots of pages to get thru.. I shall slowly..

    We travelled 5 hours from Zurich to the Bernese Oberland. We arrived in Murren after 4 train changes and a cable car ride.

    We got of the small train and Ayesha wondered if we were in the right place as the train moved out!!


    We started walking towards what we thought was our hotel..


    But why go to all this trouble in such weather and take this long trip..

    Because, as I have said previously, It Is There...The Eiger that is..3900 mts.
    of magnificent rock and snow...


    We had come to see the rock face of the Eiger. To face our fears and enjoy
    it magnificence.

    Rayyan: Welcome back. A nice grouping of photos. The train station and tree in the mist and "bam", the Eiger. The first two are extremely well pp'd and composed. The tracery of the tree is just strong enough (i usually oversaturate and lose the quality of the mist). The mountain photo's magnificent. We saw the Eiger from the other side in Grindelwald. I'm looking forward to more mountain adventure and photos.

    Cheers, Matt

    C'mon Matt... between friends, you cant tell us. What kind of false pretext like "unique shot angle" did you find to ride the tiger?

    Oops -well i guess i did, though unvoluntarily.


    Last photo from Eastern Washington may be my favorite. Interesting composition.

    Good to see you around Rayyan.
    You'll obviously have a lot of adventures and stories to tell!

    For now, magnificence it is. On your Eiger photo, snow sounds like a distant promise -the kind which will require efforts and determination.

    Lovely shots in the mist, both the station and the tree. In the latter, respective angles are impressive. Sounds like this little guy will not give in easily to laws, and forces, of nature.

    For that, you could've gently carved in a "R", and a "A".

    Corlan: It was late and the animals were scary! It was also the fastest carousel that i've ever seen. Next time. That last one's my favorite, too.
