    Thanks, Lloyd, I'm partial to that lens too! The B&W is processed using Silver EFex Pro.

    Cheers,

    This thread is too fast for an old man like me... you guys never sleep?

    Your architecture gets increasingly interesting, Alex. Please keep on.

    Bondo, beautiful Egypt photo.

    Another organic experiment. 40 layers later... it still needs work! What a blast though.

    You've got it going, Tim. I remember a night (back in the day) when a certain lava lamp got to looking something like that after a while. Who? Me?

    Hi My Friend Lloyd,
    This is a beautiful four-shot pano. I shall look forward to the autumn colors in a couple of weeks! I am taking a little break from the Nikon thread at the moment and experimenting with the fine art of "Bokehgraphy" with Keith, Rafael, Michiel, Vivek and others. All the best to you! Leica 77

    Nice pano, Lloyd.
    It'd be a treat to see the result when you'll shoot the same one in fall colors.

    Hi Matt, what do you mean ?
    Not sure i got that right, but just in case: the Zeiss 35/2 as all other ZF lenses directly mounts on the D700 (use or used the 21 / 35 / 50 /100). The 35 is a fantastic lens btw.

    Jorgen,

    Nice shot.
    Can you "enlighten" me on what temple this is?

    Thanks,

    Jorgen, these slopes are indeed enlightening. Great composition.

    Oh, and the green cabs seem more fun than their famous yellow counterparts...

    Wayne,
    It's part of a temple complex along the road from Bangkok to Pattaya. This building is still under construction, and my guess is that it will take at least a year or two before it's finished. There was no activity there yesterday, so I guess they've run out of money for now. It's a very peculiar steel construction btw. Very modernistic, but the style seems to be inspired by Lao temples, but as opposed to those, it's blue, lilac and silver (Lao temples are mostly yellow, red and gold).

    Do you still have that great 'old APS-C monster machine' as well, from 'the long gone days of lower ISO' ?
    I like its sparkling colours as well as the well exposed rendering of white in the food shot.
    Thank you, Steen. Alas, the D2x is gone. Used within its limits (low-ISO and avoiding its abrupt highlight clipping) the files had subtle, exquisite colours and great presence. The latter probably due to a commendably weak AA-filter. I have wondered about rebuying this body...

    Two more oldies from the D2x.

    Those are wonderful shots. That flower just jumps off the screen. Best seen large to be fully appreciated.

    Beautiful photos, Simon, particularly the one with the boat. The ripples in the water are so perfect, it's almost unreal

    Thanks Jorgen, they were actually taken the same day. The boat shot is a sunrise shot just outside of Ketchikan, AK, and the other during a (smaller) boat tour of the Misty Fiords NP. It was so calm the water was like a mirror in places. Hard to take a bad shot when Mother Nature is having such a stellar day.

    Thanks Gents, that means a lot! The funny part is that when we left Vancouver, the weather, and the weather forecast were miserable for the entire 3-day voyage (Vancouver - Ketchikan - Seattle), but it turned out to be just incredible. Picture taking was just so easy as everywhere you turned presented such a magnificent tableau.

    I used a couple of D300 bodies with the 12-24, the 16-85 and the 70-300 lenses.

    Ciao,

    The images are terrific! Although I have to say, the HDR hits me funny. HDR and Infrared always give me the willies, but I know there's a lot of folks who love both. I'm going out on a limb and saying that the shots would probably hold up even without the extreme processing. Regardless, well done!

    The stairs are near the Picasso museum in Antibes.

    Lloyd: that's a very intense shot of the tree. I love how it curves in one direction and the shadow goes in another. Nice!

    Thanks for the kudos. It's actually not HDR in the true sense of it, all are single exposures. I'm using Topaz Adjust with custom created presets. It may end up being a phase for me, but I quite like the look it allows you to get. For the B&W, I then post-processed in Silver EFXpro.

    I used to spend a lot of time in the wet darkroom dodging and burning to get this kind of drama, so workflow now is just such a pleasure. I quite understand that some may not like the results, but at least I've provoked a reaction. I'm obviously not going for a natural look!

    Thanks, Tim. I wish I could say I saw this tree one day and planned to go back when the light was just right, etc., but the truth is I was with my brother-in-law and my three nephews Geocaching near Lethbridge, Alberta. I brought the camera along to take pix of the kids. We were walking back to the car, and I saw the shadow. "F8 and be there."

    Simply one the best images seen here.

    (i might vote for a tad less contrast processing, but my monitor can be incriminated)

    Simon - fantastic sceneries.
    Seconding Tim though, i'm under the impression that the extra (somehow artificial?) processing might not serve some of these outstanding photos, the clouds in particular.
