    Increasing the distance to the gutter, getting closer to the stars. That's good
    Congratulations with your new appartment, Jorgen. Nice balcony view !

    Thanks guys. My new apartment has a range of advanced features. Among them are separate rooms for sleep and work. In addition, there's a largish, square room which the owner claims is a living-room, but he doesn't fool me. I know a potential photo studio when I see one

    Here's another proof that one doesn't need a German camera to make grainy, out-of-focus, black & white images

    Sometimes, a few words are worth a thousands pictures...

    Congrats on the new appartment, and great nighttime balcony photo!

    Lots of complicity and tenderness in this one.

    actually there was a bit more red on the original posted, with also a bluish line somewhere (but can't remember exactly where since you've changed the upload? or is it old age? )

    I hear you

    Re Auto CA & Noise, it's also turned off in my NX2 by default, though it's incredibly efficient when needed. A handy tool!

    Dunno if NX works as good as the latest version in this regard, from user reports it seems that it was improved though.

    Did you give NX2 a try (and not only for CA)?
    It's more than a OK software, even compared to C1 v5 for many applications. Needs a fast computer though...

    Matt, you definitely have to be careful when taking your photos. Some time ago it looked like the occasional serial criminal was the obvious threat, now you've added all kind of industrial hazards... but the photos are really great.

    And looking at'em, one keeps raving about the amount of potential recycling to be achieved from these decades. Frightening material waste...

    None, actually. It's from the christening of their first child, my second granddaughter.

    As for weddings; I try to avoid those, unless I can be the second, third or fourth photographer, doing things my way as a wedding gift. Too much at stake.

    Our first "snow" on the driveway. I wish all the storms were this benign. The sun has melted most of it already.

    Very delicate on those trees, and nice light in the background. Sorry it's melted... but I suspect you'll see more than you'd like this winter, I always do. We're at 70 right now. Ten days ago it was 33 for the high.

    Fun picture. Went to a website called tiltshiftmaker.com. You upload a JPEG and then it will convert it online into a pseudo tilt/shift image making the scene look like a diorama. Pretty neat and free!

    Very cool Carlos! I've done some of those too. It's dead simple to do yourself in photoshop. A simple gradient mask in the center of focus, then blur the other parts of the image, boost the saturation and contrast, and bingo! You've got yourself a little mini-world.

    'North to Alaska...'

    AlexLF: Nice snowfall shots. The light is wonderful.

    A container ship on it's way past Prince Rupert, BC. Nothing in that direction, but Alaska (Ketchikan, Juneau, Anchorage)

    Backlit and a struggle to process. This is a faux HDR developed from one image in Photomatrix Pro (five "exposures" created in ACR (+4, +2, 0, -2, -4)) and then processed in Lightzone. The foreground's perhaps a little light. I'd like to get enough definition in the cargo ship to make it recognizable. I'll try again tonight. Cheers.

    Matt, that shot is beautiful. It reminded me of Puerto Natales in Patagonia. We rarely have that soulful light in the Mediterranean.

    Jorgen/Lloyd/Otumay: Thanks.

    Otumay, I googled it. Puerto Natales is 51 deg. S. and Prince Rupert is 53 deg. N. That photo was taken at 9:30 pm on May 25th. Must have very similar lighting. Patagonia is on my "bucket list". Cheers.

    Matt, it's striking that the two locations have nearly the same parallel bearings, albeit on different hemispheres. I was there around November, so that would make the season equivalent to May on your side. Just for fun, here are two shots I've made nine years ago (analog, of course).
    Best,

    Very nice, Carlos. I've really enjoyed my Lensbaby. (I've had 3 versions, the original, the second, and now the composer. No comparison, the Composer is far and away the best of the bunch.)

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Thanks Lloyd. What gets me is the contrast and the sharpness (or lack thereof). The lens goes from "shave a cat" sharp to psychedelic blur in the same shot. It's quite a bit of fun to master and the rest of the Optic Swap Kit has a lot of potential. What gets me is changing the aperture by removing/adding washers to the front of the lens. Definitely a methodical lens.

    MHC: It's almost as if you photographed the sound of the violin. The OOF strings give a sense of vibration. Very cool. Thanks for posting. Cheers.

    Not my work, but my 12-year old daughter's. She was assigned "Antigravity" for her photography homework:



    She saw a similar shot on flickr along with the setup. I showed her how to use my tripod and the live view on my D700, but after that I just held the flash off-camera.

    Lloyd: Thanks for liking the moment and my choice of a Lightroom Preset

    Etrigan63: It's a Lightroom Preset called "Color 300 -300 v1" that I downloaded from somewhere a few years ago. The left column on my Lightroom screen has about 100 presets. Which, I really haven't used in a couple of years (unless, I want one of the weird and wacky ones for some reason). I'm not a purist, I use CS4, LightZone, Photomatrix, and numerous NIK products; all beginning and ending in Lightroom 2.

    I've used this300 v1 Preset 3-4 times in the last couple of years. It does the following to the Lightroom settings in Develop: exposure - +0.33; recovery - 20; fill light - 40; brightness - + 45; contrast - -70; tone curve - medium contrast; Split toning - highlights - h55, s31%; shadows - h55, s0%; lens correction - amount - -100; midpoint - 20. Then tweak the Tone settings to suit (usually lighten).

    It has a "distillation" quality about it that emphasizes the structural elements of a photograph. Color pushed Tri-X film. Cheers.

    Here's a more conventionally processed (my conventions), un-cropped, version of the same photo. Cheers.
