    Hi Carlos, great idea and nice results. Particularly lke the first and last of this series. Have to try this... maybe we'll have a "street hangin'" dedicated thread and you'd started a whole new trend

    David, your shots are very eerie. Add some theremin music and they would be otherworldly.

    She was also a wonderful violinist, I think that she was also the first musician to go beyond movie sound effects and use the instrument for serious music.

    A secluded place down a tiny countryside road in the Ardennes.
    German military cemetery from WWI. Quiet, peaceful, rich in historical sense.

    An American cemetery up the hill, the French one a hundreds yards away.
    There, 1903 German soldiers rest there.

    Late afternoon, early automn light.

    David,
    Your winter shots are unique. Very interesting stuff that captures my imagination.

    Corlan,
    Excellent graveyard photos. You've really grabbed the atmosphere of the place.

    Terrific stuff, Cindy! And the treatment is perfect.

    I really enjoyed the slideshow... some great shots there. Very authentic re-enactment. The only thing I saw that showed anything that would have made me think you didn't dig these out of some archive was the plastic funnel one soldier was using to load a weapon. Seriously. Could have been a movie set. Nice.

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    There is an electric wire running across one and one of the Union "brass" is wearing sun glasses. It was amazing what these re-enactors do. They buy their own horses, uniforms, guns...one man showed me his canon (and I'm not talking camera). This is a serious hobby. They come with pup tents and cook over wood. It looks like a blast. Thanks for looking, Lloyd.

    I noticed the sunglasses, but wasn't sure if they were sunglasses or tinted glasses, which were not unknown in that era. The shape and the wire frames were correct. Again, great stuff. They are committed, that for sure. I'd love to shoot something like that some time... drag out the wet plates, I guess, eh?

    Steve- i share your comment, incidentally i've titled this picture "History". Among other things, one keeps wondering what kind of thoughts would run through the minds of the WWII generation of German soldiers seeing these as they passed by those places...

    Corian, talk about eerie, and somber...

    Cindy, interesting battle scenes, I wonder, considering the current situation if some of these enactments will start to take artistic license and change history by letting the South win?

    Alex, you live in quite a city, in some ways like a larger, more interesting Geneva and your waterscapes are like beautiful postcards.

    David, This re-enactment was of the battle of 1861 (near the start of the war) and the south actually did win the first couple of battles. I was able to attend 3 out of the 4 re-enactlment battles over the weekend. They are portrayed as skirmishes (which is what actually happened. There were many mini-battles going on at one time.) Of the three battles that I saw, the Union won one and the Confederates won two.
    Did you notice Matthew Brady carrying his camera onto the field before the battle? ...and the gentleman on the rock with paper and pencil was an artist capturing the scene.

    I saw the images but I didn't put 2+2 together , specially the artist, I thought that it was some soldier writing a letter home...

    Thank you all for your comments!

    Corlan, D3x is really The Camera. I think the only way further is to go with H4D60 Seriously, I'd like to push the quality with Zeiss glass but that's by the end of the year

    As to cities we chose I wish I could go somewhere out of Moscow but it's hopefully next year when my daughter is at least 1 year old.

    Beautiful daughter, from what we've seen here

    Alex, did you own a D700 or D3 ?
    If so, could you notice a difference in DR performance ?

    I wanted to get a S5 mainly for this reason but it seems that there's a stupid speculation currently going on on this body... as good as it is, i refuse to pay 30% to 50% more than the last retail pricing for a used body without any warranty.

    And no news from the D700x for higher pixel count.
    (except now some says it'll be as the D300s -> same sensor just video, well)

    So...

    No worries, Mate. It's not how it's made wonderful, it's that!

    Hi Tim,
    very nice subject, subtle capture, and excellent PP (same as the water lily posted this summer?)
    200m focal here? Would you mind posting a tad larger file / close up?

    Thank you sir. I'm not that clever when it comes to making 100% crops, this is the first one I've tried... so no guarantees. It's taken with the 70-200VR handheld. ISO at 250 I think. And, I did push it around a little in PS, there's some artifacting goin' on in the jpeg.

    Thanks Tim. I'm always complaining about jpeg, so there's another example... The little fellow looks good and cute anyway - i simply wanted to show it to my daughter, she loves squirrels (and anything looking close)

    Thanks! She's growing up fast.

    No, all my cameras before were Canon's so I can't really tell. Compared to 5D the overall quality is definitely better but I can't really tell about DR in particular.

    I wanted to get a S5 mainly for this reason but it seems that there's a stupid speculation currently going on on this body... as good as it is, i refuse to pay 30% to 50% more than the last retail pricing for a used body without any warranty.

    (except now some says it'll be as the D300s -> same sensor just video, well)

    So...
    I think D700x (or whatevet it's called) will be released within next 2 months, otherwise Nikon may be in trouble (look at Sony 850 & 900, there's also 7D out this month). I think Nikon as always takes its time to polish up things in new cameras. When they're ready there will be an announcement. ...Or... get D3x and I hope new cameras announcements will not bother for next 3 years

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Thanks Alex -7D is APS-C, but it's true that Sony has a nice, attractive range at the moment, all the more with the extremely agressive pricing on the A900 lately.

    OTOH apart from the stellar Zeiss 135mm, the offer in primes seems strangely loose, especially for the 50mm FL. That bothers me a lot, being principally a 50mm shooter (+100 + 200 (resuming when i can afford a 200VR) + a little WA).

    Lot of options nowadays... well after all i can also -quite- happily live with D700 for a while. Trading in a body now might make sense, too.
