    I used to know. Maybe it is; maybe it isn't. I just know it isn't a Prius. Cheers.

    That's some beautiful portraiture, Albert. Proof of the pudding, I showed them to my wife, and they drew several "Awws". And the one of the little girl... that go got "oh, my, that's a beautiful shot!" So, it's official.

    Sweet ride! I'd love a better look at that one. The image has a painterly, somewhat surreal look. Is that HDR?

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Thanks Lloyd, Matt... as David said light is interesting here lately. Colour temp varies drastically within little time, which opens possibilities in addition of being a photographic challenge.
    The next boat was owned by a nice couple who by 2002, five years before retirement decided to take the the risk to buy a rusty wrecked barge and to rebuild it to have a home. Both workers for 40+ years but with their factories closing money was scarce so everything was made DIY with scrap yards stuff.
    Here's some details of the result (no WA lens that day):

    Living space inside is tiny (less than 250 sq. feet added), but they can't be happier. When summer comes, the 35-ft barge leaves port and they go for a 3-month ride up North...

    Here's the cabin, "back" and "front":

    Interesting thought. I see what you mean by looking again at the pictures, which make the seemingly available room much larger than it actually is -along with the fact that they did a tremendous job fine tuning every detail to fit in stuff as in a larger vessel. The whole cabin for example is merely 3 sq. meter tops...

    To give you an idea, i had to shoot with the 50mm (FF) @f2 to f4 from the outside, one foot on the concrete and the other one on the short gangplank. Btw not really an ideal stance since the darn thing is for some reason on... water , so it's kinda moving independently from your shooting position. So you have to wait not only for the light in calm weather, but also for any single ripple from passing boats to fade.

    Yes, they did. Being all thumbs myself I really was astonished when they showed me the photo of the original piece of wreck they had bought. They said they will let me scan it or try and shoot it (small, very low quality photo) next time around -they had to leave then and understandably did not want to part with this extremely valuable piece of memory to a stranger -as nice his smile was .

    Btw thanks for the compliment, actually they loved the couple of prints i brought them, the wife was even getting emotional. So i guess sometimes it's rewarding just to take pictures, "for fun".

    Thanks Jorgen.

    I even have a couple of portraits from another canal harbour, but i'm shy to post them among the masters of portraiture...

    (and also as mentionned before the laws here protecting any individual's "image rights" are so tight and people so sensitive about it that it makes you think twice before shooting street portraits)

    John, nice night shot.
    Just so you know on my screen i can see the strobe at 45 R, but a simple Spot Healing click should save the day.

    Fun colors and lights, Mikoo. Very neat!

    Beside the perfect stitch, quite an interesting composition with the green suburbs turning into cityscape -then the fog dressing the mountains in the remote backgroung. Lights, and DR, are just great.

    Did not think you had this kind of issue with pollutants in your area, btw...

    Thanks Corlan. We don't have an air pollution issue most of the year, but when it gets cold, and we get a ridge of high pressure, the cold air settles in the valley and we get an "inversion", with the warmer air up higher. This morning was a combination of that along with some fog, as we were right at the dew point. Made for some nice light, however.

    Thanks David. I live about 14 miles southeast from where this was taken. The shot is looking South, so just out of sight on the upper lefthand side. I was just killing time before an appointment in the downtown area this morning.

    Thanks again Matt. I'm coveting that 24 PCE lens myself just now.

    This shot is amazing. The decay here is sorta mind boggling actually.

    Lloyd: Faux HDR. It was processed in Lightzone. There's a "Dark Light" preset with multiple sliders to tweek to suit. Here's another shot of the same car. Cheers.

    Lloyd, is it the lens you wanted to part with for months and finally decided to keep?
    Looks pretty darn good...
