    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    Lloyd,
    Steve,
    Matt,
    Rayyan
    thank you all so much (danke schön) for the kind words you answered to my first post and the more thank you for your feedback and encouragement!

    Also I did appreciate your as usual outstanding pictures

    Jorgen, so authentic and artistic as well,
    Rayyan, so straight forward and storytelling familypictures and the nostalgic (in its best sense) Paris shot
    Lloyd, the most impressing cloud-dominated "quick grab" with very special colors
    Jason, with his excellent "lowtech" balletshot and last but not least
    Matt, who makes me feel like living in the midst of his beautiful hometown and makes me as well want to visit it by myself as soon as possible. (Hopefully didn't miss anyone ...) Thanks for sharing!

    One more I want to show you:

    D 700, 35/2 D @ f 2.2 - Upstairs


    And though the contrasting colors are so substantial to this pic, I sometimes prefere the BW-Version




    Hope you like it and thank you for your interest!
    Best regards - Hermann

    Great shots both, and on first impression I preferred the color version. However, the tonality of the b/w, particularly in the area on the right by the bar, won me over in the end.

    Hermann... I'm usually a solid black and white fan, but the color version wins for me this time! Great grab!

    Fun stuff, Matt!

    A very moody, and at once lovely, image Rayyan. The contrast, despite the fairly flat light is really quite perfect.

    Hermann: Thank you.

    Both of these are great photos (just in different ways). Here's my thoughts. The color version has a lot of impact. The orange stair dominates the photograph as a visual form. Graphically and color-wise very strong.

    In the B&W version the stair's an element in the composition that leads the eye and creates a vector that includes the man on the stair. I see more "detail" in the B&W version. The eye flows across the bottom from the newspaper to the left and up the stair to the man. Less immediate WOW, but more interesting.

    Cheers, Matt

    Matt:

    Great "randoms" (did you say randoms?) with that special "Matt-feeling" - for me the first and second one in particular

    And once more thank you so much for your feedback and empathetic comments on my pics, very appreciated - and helpful as well!

    Well, a few of those music and movie people I've met in real life have had about that much depth to them as well.

    Hermann: Please keep posting. These are excellent. The first capture is
    lovely for its perspective and composition and the vibrant colors.

    The second is appropriately titled indeed.

    Thanks for sharing.

    D 700, 14 - 24/2.8G @ 22 mm, f 7.1, ISO 2500 - "Bavarian Grandezza"

    And an urban variation on fall colors:
    D 700, 14 - 24/2.8G @ 24 mm and f 5 - "A Window with a View - revisited"

    Hope you like it and looking forward to more captures of yours on this thread.
    Hermann: Aptly chosen for "an urban variation on fall colors"! I haven't been to Munich in a while, so, i haven't seen the Brandhorst Museum in person. You can start to see the colors merging into neutral tones (as intended by the Architect) to the left and right of the photo.

    Nice colors and framing in both of them. Thanks for posting.

    Cheers, Matt

    The FBI will be thrilled to know you've spotted Whitey Bulger walking into the ladies room & coming out the mens room! 10 Million Dollar Bounty On His Head! Congrats Matt!
    Hermann/Lloyd/Rayyan/Steve: Gentlemen, thank you. Did you notice the place and date on the Bobby Kennedy poster?

    Steve: Do you think? He is "known to frequent historic sites"? Only $2,000,00 reward by the FBI, though.

    Cheers, Matt

    Rayyan: Both are nicely framed and pp'd. The shadows, simple colors, light on the white stucco, and the mustard color wall are cool in the first. Well seen! Well "arranged" background and close-up in the second. Again, well seen!

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    Lloyd, Rayyan, Steve, Matt: Thanks again gentlemen for your kind comments!

    Rayyan: Great pictures once more. In particular I like the bw Violinplayer; timing, framing, DOF and bw-conversion AAA.

    Jorgen: Unbelievable and as well admirable to make such a picture under those circumstances - the looking back of the little girl and the woman in the blurred background

    Matt: Calm, maybe, but admirably well captured and PPd as usual!

    Matt: I am sure, not only the new Brandhorst Museum would be worth a visit to Munich. Considering the passion you dedicate to the "chronicle" of Pike Place Market (and so make this interesting place present for all of us), I strongly believe you would like "Viktualienmarkt" (and some other places) in Munich as well. Maybe you would miss the hyper Burlesque Show a little bit (BTW great High ISO pics there)

    So, to make your mouth a bit water, some from "Viktualienmarkt" for you - and the others as well of course (unfortunately most of them only ooc jpegs or quick & dirty PP, sorry for that!):

    D 50, 12 - 24/4G @ 22mm, f 5.6


    Hope you like it and you get my poor German-English ...

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    Dear friends,

    As I've also wrote at other forums, I've been absent from this forum for over a fortnight. My father had a serious brain condition and was hospitalized for 17 days, three of which were spent in intensive care and one particular nightmarish night in deep coma. Thankfully, The Old Blue Eyes is home now, convalescing among his loved ones, and his famous heart-winning smile is back on his lips.

    Although I was unable to respond to your wonderful posts and discussions, I was by no means away from them; during the darkest times, I found solace by tiptoeing into this haven. It is impossible for me to name those of you who posted those magnificent shots, I loved each and everyone of them.

    I want to thank you all for... well just being what you are. I shall now post a single shot. I know this does not qualify here; it was not taken by a Nikon camera, and it has serious technical flaws, but it shows my dad with his neurologist just before he left for home.

    Best regards from Istanbul,

    Osman

    Osman, we are rooting for your father and your family. May he regain his health soon and may you and family and friends continue to see his ' heart-winning ' smile be with you for a long long time to come.

    Best regards.

    Hermann: Thanks! Nicely captured! It does look like my kind of place. I was last in Munich in 1996. It's probably changed a bit, but, remained the same in many ways. I went there every month for about a year to visit a project we had under construction in Nuremberg. I loved Munich. If, you're curious, here's a link to the projects, we did in Bavaria. http://mdriscoll.zenfolio.com/p70350...9ff0#h38349ff0 (6 pages). I was shocked to see that it was so long ago!
