    Matt: You and that 200-400 seem to be getting on pretty well together. Another beautiful duo in your series. Is that her sail boat?

    It was our wedding anniversary. I suggested Paris. She wanted Prague...
    Who was I to say ' no'.

    Sounds like a perfectly adequate, romantic place. On a sidenote, i'm not sure of the reaction i'd get for bringing a camera at our anniversary diner -just kidding


    Matt: "Rachel" is another notch on the 200-400 handle (or is it barrel?). Cool framing!

    Holy Man!! Looks like a lot to review. Hopefully later today.

    In the mean time, although I took these with my Droid, it was quite a sight to behold.

    President Obama is coming back to Chicago, so the Secret Service, CFD, CPD and other federal security agencies were doing a practice run landing in a parking lot in downtown Chicago. The rotors were about 15' from the lightposts. Amazing stuff!!

    Quite a study in contrasts. That first shot, what a composition! Reminds me of a scene from Lawrence of Arabia, the one where Omar Sharif's character is first introduced.

    Surely that last shot wasn't in your desert?

    Great catch. I'm grateful you've decided to "play"... Welcome! As Matt mentioned above, your website is full of treasures. I've been very much inspired by your work. Thanks for sharing.

    Very interesting. I'm surprised they weren't concerned about you taking pictures.

    Lloyd: Much appreciated sir. As a matter of fact we are discussing a trip to
    Jordan shortly. I want to follow the Romans and the Nabateans and some from the 16th century history. Wadi Rum is were Lawrence of Arabia was filmed and Petra is one from Harrison Ford's movies. That is on the travel
    plans for a different reason. let's see how it pans out.

    The last one is from another trail in the Himalyas. The wind chill dropped the
    temp to -60c. i got 2 shots only before the cam and I froze!!

    Corian: Thanks you my friend. -60c with wind chill is not that bad ( ); we were once in the Canadian North with Inuits chasing Auroras. They had a marathon ( 10 kms ). Ayesha took part. Morning. Sun. -45 to -50c wiyh wind chill. we had to trat ger for severe frostbite on cheeks and hands.

    Nice "stealth" shots, Jason.
    As Lloyd rightfully noted, incredible that they let you shoot this kind of rehearsal. Or maybe you had credentials?

    The last shot is indeed stuning. With the compression it looks even less than 15'. Wow.


    oh btw, just noticed your WTB in the For Sale forum. Too bad we're on different continents at the time, yesterday i extracted a brand new SB-900 from the closet (that i obviously don't use too much, to say the least )

    Cool shot. Reminds me of something, something from the sixties. Looks like he's running, trying to find the President. I wonder if he found him...

    It's still pretty extreme. IIRC the first guy who measured a -60C temps was actually considered a phoney for half a century or so... with modern devices it has been recorded quite a few times, but still: wow. This is serious equipement torture test you did over there Thanks for sharing

    Beautiful photo. I'll have your portfolio for breakfast. Rumour has it that it will be better than my sandwiches. I wonder how it will compare to the Oolong tea

    One of your best, Corlan, and that says a lot
    What a nice thing to say (and to read, too). Thanks Jorgen. And thanks Lloyd, Steve, Rayyan.



    Rayyan, your Cabot Trail looks like a -timeless- postcard from the second part of the 20th century. Nice!

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    Thanks for the comments, guys.

    It was totally random. I was on my bike doing a training ride along the lake front. There really isn't anything to see that's classified or precautionary. When I asked about the President's itinerary, a cop, federal agent and private security all had the same canned answer though.

    I'm guessing tonight when he comes to town, if that's the route he's taking, I wouldn't be able to get anywhere near it. But I might try anyways, this time with more than my cameraphone!!

    Totally agree. I'm glad you went with a larger size. The details in that shot are just amazing!!

    Thanks Osman, thanks Jason. Much appreciated.

    Level of details can be quite amazing with the D3X and the proper optics and/or some stability. For this one it was a good thing that the area is remote and pretty much unfrequented, as i was laying awkwardly on top of my car to try and get the best, steady angle...

    Jason, thanks for the insight. You definitely got the best out of the opportunity. Isn't that the essence of PJ work?

    President Obama is coming back to Chicago, so the Secret Service, CFD, CPD and other federal security agencies were doing a practice run landing in a parking lot in downtown Chicago. The rotors were about 15' from the lightposts. Amazing stuff!!

    All, thanks for your kind comments. Great photos posted here!!
    Jason: Shouldn't that be on the "Droid" board?
    Rayyan: Awesome portrait and zodiac look-a-like. The desert's beautiful! Have fun in Jordan and happy aniversary (whenever it was).
    Corlan: Great crossroads. +1 for Jorgen and Lloyd's comments. What's the significance of the small monument? Napoleon turn left!

    Cheers, Matt

    New lens. Don't tell my wife. It's not a nikon; but, I'm not sure about any Nikon Macros above the stellar 105mm VR. Thanks for looking. Cheers, Matt

    Matt, just saw your flowers posted above while i was writing this. They're terrific.
    Particularly like the second and third one, for color, light, and the smooth transitions.

    (the "small monument" is simply an old roadside crucifix, the upper -significant- part having obviously been replaced more recently than its older, solid stone basis counterpart)

    He probably did I
    n fact, it was more the german army making the left turn heading northwest torwards Paris. A couple of times...

    Lot of war cemeteries in the area, mostly German. Some previous work in my GetDPI gallery here, with the D700/ZF21 : http://forum.getdpi.com/gallery/brow...?c=164&userid= ("WWI German Cemetery" sub-folder) ... Here's a more recent one with the D3X (sorry again for the large size... well i'd rather destroy only one thread page's layout at the time ):





    (it's my personal favorite from the new series (light was promising but had to wait a couple of jours to get exactly this exact angle)... i'll post some more at regular jpeg size in the gallery later on, for those interested)

    Corlan: Thanks. Still experimenting. I didn't want to mention the Germans. That crossroads has probably seen French, Spanish, Dutch, English, German, and American troops marching though, all more then once. That's an unlucky "Musketier". No big battles around then, and the war only has 10 more months to go. Nice photo. Cheers, Matt.

    Matt: Appreciated. Still in the planning stage. Should we drive? what camera/s to carry? Lots of planning.

    Take care.

    Matt: Those colors again. I do love that mauve/violet/blue?. The drops of the white...Oh! all of them are gorgeous.
