    Nikon celebrating the Autumn colours


    Autumn has arrived, at least in The Northern Hemisphere like e.g. here on latitude 56 00 N.

    Let's enjoy the glowing colour palettes

    sorry for the lacking visual effects ...


    Thanks Tim.
    But no matter what I do the pictures persistently keep showing here on my computer.
    I've tried everything to make them go away, refreshing, re-booting and all I could think of, but nothing works, they just stay there.
    So I really don't know what to do.
    I can only hope that some other members will contribute to this thread, otherwise it's going to be the most boring thematic image thread ever on GetDPI :sleep006:
    Anyway, thanks for letting me know, I'll see if I can think of something.
    Anybody else who cannot see the images ?

    Re: Nikon celebrating the Autumn colours

    Hi Steen, No worries here.

    I was going to ask why the foliage look so brittle (especially the last 2) then I saw that you used the E for the images.

    Thank you, Vivek
    I think the foliage looking so brittle has more to do with the foliage (in the last two pictures) being backlit than the camera being the Extravagance model.
    At least the backlit foliage was what really caught my eye and unfortunately there's definitely nothing extravagant about my eyesight anymore
    Summa summarum, the brittle look actually was there to begin with.

    Re: Nikon celebrating the Autumn colours

    Steen, I looked at the larger version and I do see jaggies (red shiny foliage). I don't know where they come from but the image certainly can not be what you saw.

    Thanks for pointing it out, Vivek, and you are right, it's only an image of what I saw .-)

    I have now uploaded a more careful Raw conversion so that the image doesn't fall apart.

    Is it better now ?

    Or do I need to buy an anti-aliasing filter to blur out the Extravagance

    Re: Nikon celebrating the Autumn colours

    That looks better. Now, I can see the green foliage at infinity without much detail. Would that be diffraction playing a role (f/8) or the lens isn't focused for infinity?

    Definitely not infinity, the last two pictures with the backlit red grass were focused on the red grass only a few meters away, using the AF-S 28mm G wide angle lens.

    With regards to diffraction I think it's pretty safe to use f/8 on the D800 / D800

    I often use f/8 when I need the Depth Of Field, but I rarely go beyond f/8.

    Nikon celebrating the Autumn colours


    In summer the Virginia Creeper, Parthenocissus quinquefolia, is some shade of green like the rest of the foliage - but in the autumn it turns red.

    Re: Nikon celebrating the Autumn colours

    Nice thread, Steen - locally we are having a poor show - it has been far too warm for any decent colour shift - which is a pity as the cherry tress are usually blazingly red at this time of year.

    Note much colour ... will try again today ..... but in the interim .... at least the Nikon 24-70mm gives decent starbursts....

    Nikon celebrating the Autumn colours


    Thanks a lot, Swiss and Rayyan

    Beautiful capture and a nice starburst from the 24-70mm, Swiss, looks like (and sounds like) you got yourself a great sample of that lens.

    And I agree, Rayyan, it would be nice to see the folks in the States and Canada post their usually glorious autumn sceneries.

    Beautiful, Swissblad

    In the autumn the English yew, Taxus baccata, gets red berries.

    Here again with the AI-modified Nikkor-S Auto 1.4/50mm from the old days when there were true aberrations .-)

    Perhaps I should get a TS lens….



    Ah, my finance minister saw the TS comment - well maybe there is hope as Xmas is just around the corner….
