    Ah... and the audience, lots of golf enthusiasts, was there. At least these three gentlemen.

    Well... yes, it's tough. Did I mention that one of the main sponsors is Heineken? They did apparently anticipate the suffering, and compensates by serving free refreshments at the media center. Not a bad idea after a day hauling two heavy cameras around a golf course in 35 degrees C

    Thanks LLoyd, glad you liked this quite simple shot.
    Light was scarce but flowing gently.

    It's been snowing for last couple of days in Moscow so I thought I'd get out and catch that snowy weather (D3x, 24-70/2.8):

    Alex: These are so precise, that at first glance, I thought these were photos of an elaborate model train setup! Nice colors and detail. Thanks for sharing

    Super cool, Alex!
    I like this silky quality rendering in your cityscapes... was wondering if it had a lot to do with PP or if it's from start a general look from your shooting technique and equipment?

    Having said that, well i must admit that Leica77 Polynesian scapes have more immediate appeal to me right now in the middle of the winter

    Sorting out older folders on this -again- cold, windy Saturday... found this one from which i had posted a crop some time ago (can't find it though). The original below, no crop, pretty much out of the camera with simple Nikon Vivid mode out of NX2, looked kinda ok.

    On a cold wintry day, it's nice to see a reminder that the world will have some warmth and color again. Thanks. I needed that.

    Actually i stopped working on two ongoing series to dig in last summer stuff and i guess this one stood out for the very same reasons. Winter is on depressing side this year here

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Thank you all for your comments!

    Corlan, this time I used tripod and mirror up technique And Live view too.
    I have a sharpening action in PS so I use it all the time. It's just one parameter that I change from pic to pic, that's all.
    Obviously, these photos could be taken with almost any DSLR, considering the size of these JPEG's. But! As I tend to take pictures having BIG PRINTS in mind I take them with the best camera and lenses - the D3x and ... the lens I have for now: 24-70/2.8. I'm sure though I'd get the results even better with my Linhof but here's the common problem with large format - the whole setup is large and heavy I take out Linhof only when I know 100% that I have to take best of the best.

    You guys rock! Seriously, great stuff in here.

    It's wicked cold and windy out. The yard is frozen and slick as a bottle. So I got bored and started playing around with the lensbaby and the screw-on magnifier lenses. Just for fun, eh?

    That is a fun shot Tim. I love my Lensbaby, and haven't used it enough lately. I need to get it out again.

    i went ahead and got the new 70-200. between the lens and the new firmware, i was amazed at how easy tonight's hockey game was. quite an improvement in awb from the firmware, and the lens is quite a a better than i expected. you can see one of the players diving out of the way of the puck coming in at the goalie. shot at iso 2000 and auto white balance under artificial lights that would look pretty yellow/brown with the older firmware. anyway, i guess the new 70-200 is worth the $800 it cost me to upgrade (sell old, buy new).

    Great results for sure, Bob. Looks like I'd better load up that new firmware.

    Super shot, as always Bob...
    Nikon should definitely give you the long lenses, each time you make everyone want one!

    And you're right to underline the terrific job Nikon did on this new firmware, i was astonished myself at the improvement of the AWB in artificial light, a long way from the previous yellow/orange/brownish

    At a lesser degree but still noticeable, noise is better too at mid-ISO and up. I'm not technically educated enough but it feels just like it's somehow related to the AWB improvement. Can't explain -and i'm very possibly wrong- but it's how it feels when opening the RAW files... great stuff anyhow.


    Lloyd, if Nikon's work is anywhere as good on the D3 than on the D700, you'll love it, guaranteed!

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Great winter shots, Alex.

    Back from the golf course last night, after three days in the baking hot sun, catching a flu or something along the way. Here are a few more samples:

    D80 with 300mm @ f/4



    D80 with 300mm @ f/4



    D80 with 300mm @ f/4



    S5 with 80-200 @ f/2.8



    I've only been through a tiny fraction of the photos I took, but there seems to be a couple of keepers. The most important thing of all: this is one of the greatest photo experiences I've had ever. It was a fantastic opportunity to take people photos, and although physically challenging, I feel that it was worth it. Sports photographers is a different race, but they are great people. I want to become one when I grow up

    Oh, and another thing: I need (read: want) a D300s. The frame rate would be useful for this kind of photography, as would the high ISO capabilities and the added resolution, but most of all, I discovered that there's actually a rather big difference between the viewfinder of my D80 and S5, and probably even more so between the D80 and the D300s. I haven't really noticed before, but then, I haven't used the cameras side-by-side under challenging circumstances like these before either.

    And a second thing.... a 200-400 would be nice. Santa Clause? Is he on holiday yet?

    And a couple with the Reflex. The Reflex and the S5 is a fantastic match from a sharpness and colour point of view. The trick is to avoid busy backgrounds and obviously out of focus highlights. Manual focus is a strain on the eyes as well, and after four hours and a few hundred shots, I really needed a rest.

    Great stuff, Jorgen. I really like them all, but I LOVE that second one of the first set. When you recover from that sportshooter headache, post more!!

    Lloyd/Osman/AlexLF/CorlanF/Steve: Thanks for your kind comments. I'm still working my way through the processing. Hopefully, I don't end up posting repeats.

    Fultonpics: Great hockey shot. I had to look for the puck. You couldn't have waited until it was on a white background? It is a nice lens!

    Jorgan: Stellar golf photos. Almost makes it look like fun. And on that last shot, thanks for getting the ball on the blue background. The "fishing" bear was practicing for the salmon run later in the season.

    Cheers,

    Thanks Matt, I always try to wait until the ball is on a blue background
    The real fun part is when the marshals decide that the photographers should only be allowed to walk (run) in the rough, and starting after the players have left the tee-box. For this tournament, they had even grown the rough unusually long. Great exercise

    Here's another one of the young Japanese superstar, Ryo Ishikawa. There must have been nearly 100 Japanese accredited photographers present during the first two days. Fortunately, most of them returned to Japan after they got the images they wanted.

    It's tricky sometimes to figure out before the swing, where the head and club of the player will be after, and to get focus placed correctly, but it's a fun challenge

    Cool hockey shot with lots of action. What's the shutter time and f-stop?
