    Thanks for the info Matt. I like this "conventional" version, but the first one you posted has that little something extra.

    Beautiful image, Aboud. And you're so, so right about the politicians.

    Truly impressive, Aboud. You're putting that great lens to very excellent use. Looking forward to more!

    This one's been a struggle to pp. Too dark, too light, too cold, too warm, blown highlight, etc. C & c appreciated. Cheers.

    I'd try to offer some criticism Matt, but the truth is, I like the image very much. Of course there's the obvious burned out area in the sky, but I don't find that it detracts from the overall for me. The quality of the light in general more than compensates.

    It does look like a tough one. Since neither the blown highlight or the not-quite-real looking light in the shadows don't really work for me, I wonder if it might not work with the boats silhouetted. Just a thought and strictly a matter of opinion.

    Everybody, Thanks for the good comments.

    TRSmith: Some of the trial versions were more silhouetted. I agree the light in the shadows is a little unreal.

    Work in progress. I'll let it sit for a while. Cheers.

    Been a bit detached lately. Work and other disturbances are killing me

    Here's a couple from Bekkelaget Church in Oslo:

    D80 with Tamron 17-50mm @ 17mm and f/2.8
    WB is a bit off on this one, but I kind of like it that way.




    D80 with Nikkor 85mm @ f/2.2

    Jorgen: The church shots are beautiful; and, the composition with the two ferries and the twin towers is perfect.

    Very nice. A little confusing, though. Is that a pier with a mini-cruise ship on the near side and a skyscaper ship on the other? Cheers.

    Ummm... the "mini-cruise ship" is the Royal Yacht, and belongs to His Majesty King Harald of Norway It was a gift to his grandfather from the people of Norway, and acquired in 1947. Originally, it was built for Sir Thomas Sopwith as a mother-ship for his sailing yachts during his attempts to win the America's Cup. It was built by Camper and Nicholson and launched in 1937.

    The ship in the background is the DFDS (De Forenede Dambskib Selskaber) ferry between Oslo and Copenhagen. The building in the forest to the left is the Ekeberg Restaurant, one of the best kept functionalistic style buildings in Oslo, and with a beautiful view over the city and the Oslo Fjord.

    Edit: The name of the "pier", which is actually solid land, is Vippetangen.

    Jorgen,

    Thanks for the info. "Funkis" architecture. I assumed that is was modernist movement. I didn't know that it was that prevalent in Norway (Wikipedia, again). My mother's mother was from Bergen. I've never been to Norway. Maybe, someday. Cheers.

    The wedding photo is good, but the last one is excellent. Great perspective, and the colourful background works well. Very inspirational

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    A few from this weekend... C&C welcome!

    Also a question... do you find it harder to take pictures when you are out with a significant other?

    All of these are without a tripod because it kinda encroaches on our date... I feel naked without it. Please don't get the wrong idea, I had a wonderful time, I just find it hard to take pictures (especially ones that involve set up when going as a couple). I probably spent only a few minutes tops actually looking and shooting...

    P.S. These are all ISO 400 and above... Only a few years ago, I thought I would never take landscape above 50!

    Don't even speak about it. I find it difficult to take photos when I'm with someone, and difficult to be with someone when I take photos. Thai girls are easy though. Just let her take a friend, give them a dollar or two for food, and they'll chat and eat for hours, not even noticing that I'm there

    The billiard photo is excellent

    First off, great first post. Welcome out of the shadows, let's see more!!!

    Nice wedding picture shot. Fun, and full of personality. The shot of the cat with the character made laugh right out loud, and the final shot is just technically a great image. Like I said, well done, and let's see more!!

    Very nice shots, Eric. The last one is a nice moment captured, and I like the pattern of the lights above them. The 2nd and 3rd are also good, but the first shot is special. The light is really amazing, and the scene reminds me of something out of Lord of The Rings. Good one indeed.

    I find it difficult to shoot with my wife only when I surprise her with the fact that I'll be shooting when we're doing something. If she knows in advance (and she doesn't have some objective for our time together that the shooting with impede in some fashion) it goes better. Like you, however, when I'm with her I don't always take the time, or set up shots with the same patience or effort I might when I'm alone. Good luck with that.

    Albert, excellent baby & dad portrait, very cool!

    Matt great work as always, very heroic perspective. Did you ever get a 4x5 yet?

    Mikoo, very fun wedding image you have here. Love the last picture with car and doll too.
