    That's a great cycling shot Lloyd. I have a different reaction to the oof area in the background though. Everyone's preference is different of course, but I find the chrome jigglies to be a bit distracting. No offense.

    None taken, Tim. Usually this lens produces silky smooth bokeh. I think the heat shimmers (is that a term) may be causing the effect. It was sweltering, and you can see the reflections of the riders on the blacktop. This shot, taken a few seconds earlier shows it even more. All I did was resize and slight sharpening for the web.

    The mirage-like effects on the cyclists in the background are certainly different and quite pleasing. All the best, Leica 77

    Lloyd, this one is great, and better than the other. Here, you can really see the drama developing (and their faces too).

    Of course! The heat shimmer makes perfect sense. Now that you mention it, it does look hot. Looks like a tough ride!

    Nice work Lloyd! Man that looks like some hot weather down there. What part of UT does this race take place in?

    And what a great batch of new images lately from everyone. Been to busy to chime in lately.

    Thanks Rob. The race takes place in northern Utah. Today's stage started in Ogden, went through the mountains and ended in Salt Lake City. The "Queen Stage" is on Saturday. Starts in Park City, goes through the mountains, and ends at Snowbird in Little Cottonwood Canyon. Over 12,000 feet of climbing in 97 miles. Easily rivals any of the mountain stages of the Tour de France.

    Indeed that is quite the ride on Saturday, not that the rest of it is a slouch either. Sounds like you got your weekend planned out for photography.

    Got a show of sorts coming up shortly at the Sundance Ranch in the area, and had thought about coming down this weekend for a quick trip... might postpone now though it would be fun to watch/photograph part of the race however.

    Thanks! Although, I admit that I'm a bit surprised. This is in the same vein as doodling on a napkin only the pen in this case is photoshop. In any case, I'm delighted to have some encouragement for experimenting with something different.

    You shouldn't look down on doodles Tim, many a brilliant art was born on a Napkin.

    And by the way... where are all the other Nikon shooters on this thread? I gotta believe there are others on the forum with Nikons. Wish more folks would jump in.

    Yeah, I agree. Same on the M8 forum. Maybe just the time of year.

    Nice shot Jorgen. Clearly the guy is not afraid to get his hands dirty. Massive train!

    I guess it does make sense that everyone is out and about during the Summer. We'll just have to hold down the fort until they return!

    Littlest fan. Came across this pair near the finish of Stage Two of the Tour of Utah. "Grandpa Steve", and his 14-month-old granddaughter, who clapped and cheered, and generally acted like she knew exactly what was going on here. Simply irresistible.

    Very nice. I like the bicycles in the background. They add to the story. The DOF is just perfect.

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Tim,
    I feel like I'm looking down into a tiny world with this photo. Very pretty, and the colors are captured so well. (I struggle with greens when I use the D700, probably why I prefer the S5. Sometimes I use the D2X profile in C1, instead of the D700 profile. The greens from the D2X profile are more as my eye sees them....sorry to go off topic.)

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Thanks Cindy! The D2Xs is the only digital Nikon I've ever owned and I've always liked the greens. Consequently, I've never understood people's complaints about Nikon's color. Maybe some of the newer Nikon digitals handle that color differently. I will say that since I started processing the D2Xs RAWS in C1 I've had a renewed excitement for the Nikon files. If you haven't already, you might give C1 a try for yours.

    (edit: oops, just reread your post and see that you are using C1)

    This poor, battered sign gets knocked over and ground up against the gravel every spring at ice out. They just keep putting it back up. Waste not, want not, eh?

    I am a temporary D700 owner having decided to rent one for the weekend to try it out. This was taken with a Nikkor 24/2.8 - is it me or is this a great lens?
