    Hello TRSmith,
    Many thanks for your kind comments. Likewise, in another life, I may try one of these fast jets...

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    I'm in edit mode for the time being, trying to get through zillions of unedited photos from the last two years. Here's another one from the Eiffel designed Long Bien Bridge in Hanoi, taken from the Long Bien railway station. It's almost two kilometers across the river, but on a rainy Hanoi morning, nobody can see that far.

    Hello "Professor" Jorgen,
    It's a great image of the Long Bien Bridge. Such a wonderful tribute to Eiffel and his legacy in the world of beautiful and functional architecture. All the best, Leica 77

    Thank you L77. Here's a portrait, taken at the market next to the bridge the same morning.

    HI Jorgen
    the bridge is wonderful . . . reminds me of the Ian Banks book. But Guardian of Brightness is a real winner.

    Just this guy you know

    Great moment Jorgen! She looks intent.

    The earlier bridge shots reminded me I had this one. Not in the same class, but perhaps inspired by Monsieur Eiffel.

    Hello TRSmith,
    The composition of the image gives a great sense of perspective for the bridge. It seems Monsieur Eiffel really got around -- France, Portugal, French Indochina, and your part of the world (!?#) ... Cheers! Leica 77

    Two from today. A sweet French Fry Cook (I'm a sucker for redheads) and a simple boat in the fog.

    Best,
    Tim

    p.s. The WB was a bear in that french fry stand.

    Hi Albert,

    Haven't seen much of your stuff lately, always great to see shots of your lovely daughters. Been watching them grow through your images over the past few years and sometimes it feels like being part of the family...

    You mean French Fry like in Pommes Frites? If that is what the cooks look like, I need to eat more of the stuff, correct white balance or not

    Nice photo too

    Lovely shots of lovely daughters, Albert

    Hello APY_JR (Albert),
    I agree with Lloyd that your images recorded by the Nikon D2Xs have great colors. By visiting a site on the web (http://nikonasia-en.custhelp.com/cgi...i=&p_topview=1), I recently downloaded the Nikon D2X Color Modes I, II, and III to my Nikon D300 as optional picture controls. Nowadays, I use "Nikon D2X Color Mode I" more often than the built-in Nikon D300 picture controls. In a way, it's like having two great Nikon DSLR cameras in one. All the best, Leica 77

    Thanks to Lloyd, L77, Jorgen, and DDK for your comments. It's always very encouraging to hear. However, for the record, if you should ever see something odd or ugly, feel free to write that too.

    Oh and yes Jorgen, French Fries are the same as Pomme Frites. A gift from the gods!

    Hi Leica 77!

    I'm not that complicated... I shoot RAW only and click balance later in post on a MacBeth 24CC card

    Lovely shots Albert!

    May I ask what your lighting arrangements were? How far were the girls from the backdrop?

    Here's a quickie I took of my summer photography students. They were dressed up nice for portrait sessions. I had them taking portraits of each other.



    In case you are wondering, the image is processed with an antique color look. helped offset some of the weird lighting in the classroom (odd mix of soft white and cool blue bulbs randomly dispersed around the room).

    Hi Carlos!

    4 lights & reflector.

    Subjects were 4 Ft. from the BG.

    A main at f8 45 degrees left... with a gridded softbox 3x4ft.

    Hairlight directly above with a 10"x36" stripbox metered at f5.6

    Two "kickers" at 45 degrees from behind the subjects metered at f5.6 (both with 10"x36" softboxes.

    A "touch of warmth" reflector to the right of subjects bouncing the "main and left kicker "lights onto the subject.

    Make sense I hope? If not... shoot me an email for further explaination!

    Albert

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    I had a frustrating day shooting yesterday. I went to the Rockland, ME Lobster Festival hoping to capture... something. But I found I wasn't in the proper frame of mind. Left early and chocking it up to just not feeling it.

    In any case, here's a shot of the first day's visitor's map showing where some of the people came from. The map showed the entire globe and there were visitors from lots of other countries as well. The second shot shows the draw.

    Your self portrait reminds of Playboy's Wet & Wild series from the 90s. They use to have the chics sitting or laying naked on some sculpture similar to the one you're on, in a pool of water and spray them with a hose...

    I know that your pool is only virtual, pretty good though.
