    Re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Nothing to worry about Rayyan. I have always had that attitude that if we all agreed upon solely one camera with one lense, it would all be more fun, while we would be forced to use our fantasy, imagination, put the camera to its limits,
    and ourselves too...and just get out doing it..with our simple instrument..restrictions but liberating (I lived perhaps 5-6 years with a M6 and solely a 21Elmarit2.8 attached - perhaps my happiest and most relaxed photofeeling-period at all)
    Perhaps I'm wrong (or perhaps right).
    In a way I envy you...

    'Kittens Mittens' - D810 / Tamron 24-70

    He introduced himself as Captain Bill. With his weathered face, black captain’s hat, full white beard and donning a pair of old sea boots, he looked the part. Sitting on a piece of ledge in front of the old row boat in this picture, he spent the better part of two hours sharing stories of his life at sea. A few of his tales seemed like they may have been ‘enhanced’ but it didn’t matter much to me. I enjoyed listening to them. Capt. Bill was a salty, colorful character. I liked him.

    His home was in rough shape. His yard was filled with piles of old lobster traps, buoys, line and other misc. fishing gear, along with a rusted out truck and other well worn machinery. There was an old, rotted out wooden sloop that would never sail again.

    Last year, Captain Bill’s property was plowed under to make way for a new town park. I don’t know where he went from there, but I hope he’s okay. I’m happy to have made this picture when I did. My only regret was that I didn’t include him in it.

    Doug, it would have been nice to see Captain Bill but you have painted a wonderful picture of him in my mind of a colourful character which is the next best thing...I lost a good friend called Bill 10 years ago who I sadly miss who was an ex navy man who told me wonderful stories of his life...I have a few pictures of him but I wish I had more...Thanks for sharing...Cheers Barry

    Re: Fun with Nikon Images

    I was playing around today with a lens I rented (Sigma 85 Art) and this wooden schooner drifted into view. She's the 'Eastwind' and sails out of Boothbay Harbor here in Maine. These beautiful boats can be found up and down the coast, taking folks out for day sails and extended voyages. Eastwind's summer job starts right about now. For those of you who may come to Maine this summer, or in the future, I highly recommend a ride on a schooner - magical. In the distance, off of Eastwind's bow (the pointy end) you can see the top of the Cuckolds Lighthouse. Oh, and the Siggy is pretty good.

    Just home from China and one highlights of the trip was a visit to the Giant Panda Breeding and Research Base just out side Chengdu. It was an on and off rainy day so the Pandas were out having a good time. What I didn't know is Pandas climb trees.

    Nikon D500, Nikkor 200-500mm

    I'm a let adopter of the Nikon 200-500mm, and while it is heavily and not as easy to use as the 300mm PF, I'm surprised at how good it actually is....

    Re: Fun with Nikon Images

    This is with the Zeiss 100mm f/2 Makro-Planar. I had always considered it to be the sharpest lens I own. That was until the new Nikkor 105 f1.4 came along. Maybe it has something to do with the resolving power of the D810. I don't know, but I DO know that I am even more impressed with the 105 after peeping the stuff from the Zeiss 100.

    Just returned after a few months of absence. Excellent images here!

    This is one that I recently took with the newly acquired 24mm 2.8 AIS. What a great lens!

    Some people claim that old, obsolete crop sensor cameras can still be used for photography. Nonsense says I! Big, heavy millstones that can't even get the background sharp! Just look at this photo from earlier today... also, she seems to have only one earring. Those people at Nikon must really get their act together!

    Same problem here; people in the background are seriously out of focus... or are they simply drunk? And look at those glasses! That's what happens when you shoot using a camera without 1/22,000,000 second electronic shutter!

    D300 with 80-200 AF-S, no idea about focal length and aperture. I screwed up the firmware last night while trying to upgrade.

    Re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Every time I do this, I promise myself never to do it again, and if I do, be sure to carry something lightweight, like a little Panasonic of some kind, and not this made-of-stone D2Xs with the made-of-lead 80-200 AF-S attached to it, and dangling from the other shoulder, the D300 with the 300mm f/4, the old, carved-from-concrete AF version. And the bag with the Panasonic and some wider lenses and batteries and memory cards and... hey, I'm more than sixty now, and should spend my Saturdays and Sundays in the garden with a Campari or two, watching the children play.

    Then I get home, looking at the files, 1,600 of them. Never mind those from the D300. Never liked that camera, although it's my most used ever. But the others, those from the granite D2Xs. When is the next race, I wonder. Should I get another D2Xs body?

    I can't show you all the images I like. I try to make a few cent from all this suffering, so they go to the agencies, but I'll be going to races again, and I will for sure bring that Nikon and the large, heavy lens

    Fun with Nikon Images


    first of all kudos for your nice captures, Jorgen
    And yes, the D2Xs has always been sort of a mystery to me as well.
    Its vibrant colors and crisp rendering reminds me so much of the typical rendering from CCD sensors despite actually being Nikon's first CMOS sensor based camera, if I recall correctly.
    Could it be it has to do with the processor and its algorithms, profiles and firmware in general rather than the physical sensor ?
    In any case I think the D2Xs will always remain a fascinating classic.

    Ahhhh... the saturated copper greens of Velvia... Brings back memories!!!

    Here is one of those memories from about 1990. Actually made with Velvia at ISO 40 in a Nikon 8008 and one of the early 24/2.8 af lenses. It was a double exposure, first exposure made at Sunset, then waited 2 hours for the sky to darken and full Moon to rise and exposed for 2 additional hours to fill. Then during that 2 hours, went into the casino with a small flashlight and selectively lit, the yellow CT emulating old oil lamps. That's how we did it in the old days folks!

    Thanks friends
