    Your pictures from Poipet are so good. I love that misty morning shot.

    Thank you for your kind words, all of you. Here's one from the start of the journey, the train to Aranya Pratet on the Thai side of the border being 40 minutes late, as usual

    S5 with 70-300 ED @ 270mm and f/8.0

    This photo also illustrates the strengths of the Fuji. It's a straight conversion from RAW, with no other adjustments than a quarter of a stop exposure (up), some highlight recovery and sharpening for web.

    Edit: Even Fuji can be improved, so I increased the brightness slightly as well (+15 in PS), which is the version currently visible.

    S5 with 85mm f/1.8 @ f/2.0, 1/18s and ISO 800

    Truly, a great series Jorgen.

    As usual in your compositions there's a strong sense of humanity. And reflecting the people abitliy to meet less-than-ideal living conditions with a positive, often even cheerful attitude -especially compared to most of their western counterparts.

    The motorcycle shot (superb) posted in "Nikon Street" fits right into this theme, too.

    Well, it conveys hope. And that's nice.

    The one photo quoted above looks different from the rest, would fit in with your former night market pictures. Intertesting to see how things quite consistently look less miserable in dim light.
    (and 1/18s? wow...)

    Thank you, Corlan. This one was taken at the old market in Poipet, and it was almost night. It's always fascinating to be there before they open and see how it all develops, from a group of people sleeping on floor and benches to a little community with hundreds of people. The old market in Poipet is particularly interesting, since it's so basic, still rather large. It has a terrible reputation for hygiene though, and the smell is rather... uninviting.

    Agreed some awesome images in this set Jorgen, as usual.

    Good point Corlan. I have come to believe seldom does money even enter into the equation of an individuals happiness or content, and all too often the more one has the more miserable they appear. Go figure.

    Now for a look into the past, and some boring undertones in this page graced with vivid and enchanting colors.

    This is a dungeon tower, last artifacts left from a 14th c. castle. The property was owned by an american family for the better part of the 20th century, then donated to the town administration along with a trust fund to ensure further renovation. Works are en route...

    Meet the dungeon:

    Impressive place, nicely photographed. I really light the light in those interior shots. The fifth image in the first group really grabbed me. Good stuff.

    Thanks Lloyd, Jorgen.
    Hallway is indeed my favorite -along with the stairs and the fireplace for the light.

    I'll do better with the tripod and notes, these are test shots. Unfortunately weather has dramatically change the last couple of days. Will be a tough one. Shoot.

    Very first shot with my new D3. My far too patient wife, literally home 5 minutes from a 12+ hour work day.

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    nice variety of shots... so how do you like the D3 compared to the D300... nice toy isn't it?
    Less forgiving but significantly greater potential IMHO, provided that you have the right lenses -and you're not exactly needy in that respect (!).

    Since we were talking about WB in the other thread, is it possible that it was a bit off for the interior shot of your wife (great genuine, tired smile btw) ? Might be the default PP settings too depending on what software you're using. Sometimes they do not get the tungstene/fluorescent light right. Assuming you shot RAW, of course...

    (i'm mentionning this because the outdoor shots seem spot on)

    Well, too soon to tell about the D3 vs the D300, as I've only shot about a dozen frames, but I shot for a while with my son's D700, and I know I'll enjoy the sensor size, and the high ISO capability. I haven't shot regularly with a "pro" body camera since I sold my last D2x a while back. Right now the camera seems huge, and particularly since I shoot Leica most of the time. I'm looking forward to using this, however, I have a friend who uses the D3, and I've certainly been impressed with the results he's had.

    I think you're right about the WB on the shot of my wife (thank you, btw... cutest little grandma around these parts... but then I'm pretty biased). I shot all the images on Auto WB, and didn't make any changes other than to that one of my wife. There is a mix of light in our kitchen, and I did a quick adjustment in ACR, but didn't get it just right. It looked ok on my laptop monitor (where I adjusted it), but on my desktop in a different room, not so much.

    Lloyd,

    It seems that the Nikon does a bit better on incandescent setting in mixed lighting and then a correction in ACR is easier.

    I recently discovered that applying the Phase P20 natural product camera profile in C1 made it a lot easier to deal with Nikon skin tones. Let me know what you think.

    Great idea! I'll give that a try. I have been using the camera calibration in ACR and LR, and use the D2X Mode 2. That seems to give good skin tones, but the WB still is a problem.

    I like DX2 mode1 myself especially for outdoor green rendering.

    Otherwise Standard is ok, so is Vivid for other shots, generally "-1" or "-2" (but that's NX only i think).

    Agreed with Bob for the "incandescent" WB as a good base in mixed lighting.
    Also with the Phase 20 profile for those who use C1 -though i eventually fine tuned some settings of my own for this terrfic but again arduous software.

    Oh, forget everthing else, now we know for sure what the problem was.

    You shouldn't use this piece of junk glass on your new D3. Name a reasonnable 3-fig price and i'll take care of retiring this one for you.

    Glad to help.

    Treasure Found.

    Ran into a young woman at my local camera shop this afternoon. She was recently poking around a flea market in Sandpoint, Idaho, and came across this pristine Zeiss Ikon Super Ikonta 531. It is in absolutely perfect condition, and the leather case (not shown) looks new. Not a scratch or wear mark on it... nothing! I found one in ok condition on eBay with a Buy-it-Now price of $999.00. And the real news. She paid $2.00 for the camera. (I offered to triple her $$$, and give her $6.00 for it. She's thinking it over. )

    D3. 70-200VR/2.8 @ 2.8, ISO 1600:

    Nah.. I love film. But it'll be a cold day in hell when she sells that to me! There was a guy in the store who offered her $400 on the spot. She wasn't even tempted.

    Lovely light, lovely tones.
    Makes me think of a lifestyle agency photo used for an upscale retirement community...

    (btw colours are superb here... how did you process the raw file? autoWB? used oone of the camera profile?)

    Finally broke the ice with D700 and took mom and dad to a fish restaurant on the Bosphorus. Shot with compassion and Nikkor 28/1.4.

    These are really nice, Osman. Wonderful color as well. Treasures... as are your parents. Your mother has a kind and gentle look.

And the real news. She paid $2.00 for the camera. (I offered to triple her $$$, and give her $6.00 for it. She's thinking it over. )
    All right that does I gotta start hitting the flea markets! BTW you are off to a great start with the D3, you'll love it! And clearly grandma's don't look like they used to.

    Thanks Rob... she's not a typical grandma in any way, for sure. As for the D3, it was work like yours that inspired me to go for it. Of course lots of serious folks are moving to the D3x, but that's not in my cards at the moment. (Credit cards, that is.)

    Still just playing around with the new D3. All with the 105VR/2.8 Micro Nikkor, and all just straight out of the camera other than applying calibration in ACR, resize and sharpen for web. Slight crop on the two flowers shots. All these shot at f3.5.

    Very nice, all of them!

    Missed autumn here, went straight from summer to hard core winter in one day flat, over half a foot of snow last night, the 3rd one at that. 7 F tonight, 5 F tomorrow... flowers are looking good about now.

    Thanks Rob. We're having a strange autumn as well. Very cold last week, with rain, snow, sleet... the full-meal-deal. Back into the upper 50's, low 60s this week. The leaves were just coming on in the mountains when we had the snow, so that ended it all. In the valleys the leaves are just turning, but we had a hard frost for several days so they mostly seem to just go straight from green to brown. Weird.

    I'm not ready for your weather. We were supposed to head up to Alberta this weekend, but decided to take a pass.

    Strange brew indeed. I'm not ready for this either. Did hear some rumors that Glacier NP was not hit as hard, roads are open again. Its much lower in elevation than us, might make a difference. Right now 50-60's sound good!

    Beautiful, Lloyd. I really like the blue flower shot. Some great bokeh with that lens huh?

    Thank you, Lloyd. Dad uses a Canon Ixus in addition to his Nikon D70s, but mom never leaves her Leica D-Lux 3 at home. I wonder how their shots were...

    By the way, I liked your D3 photographs very much. Is there a substantial difference between the outputs of D3 and D700?

    Best,
    Osman
