    Steve, your lollipop image is completely phenomenal.
    Have you tried to print it big ?

    Smokin' indeed. Matt, are carrying both the D700 and the M9 at the same time? Also, these are yet another simply beautiful b/w series.

    Thank you very much Steen! I have not printed it large because i am currently trying to get into "Lloyd" type condition for cycling season this spring! I shall not be tempted!

    Edit: I can see what you like about the third photo. Printed larger, the relationship of the mast and the tree would be visually very compelling.
    Thanks for your comment, Matt. Much appreciated.

    This last bear series has a special quality to it, really. Maybe the light was even better, too. I kinda misunderstood in the first place and was quite amazed it would simply be a matter of PP discrepancy.

    Seconding the fellows here, your ongoing street series is quite worthy of selecting the top shots for a photographic documents on Seattle's Market area people and life in the early years of the third millenium




    P.S. Steve- you're obviously such a reasonnable person...

    Cookie sharpens the saw.

    p.s. This is one of the times I wish I had a newer/bigger/better sensor.

    Steve/Lloyd/Corlan: Thanks for commenting.

    Lloyd: Only one camera at a time. Don't need one for color and one for B & W anymore.

    Corlan: You're welcome. The "bear" trip was seven days. Three of which were in the Khutzeymateen photographing bears. Northern BC weather, different light, and different bears every day. Not to mention the inconsistent human behind the camera.

    TRSmith: Nice photo. Had to look close. Leaning into his work. You can almost hear the file on the saw blade.

    Cheers,

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Not easy to keep up, with all the excellent photos posted here, and all the monkeys sitting on my shoulders, but here's an attempt anyway.

    D80 with 70-300 ED @ 210mm and f/5.0
    This lens is ready for the chopping block. It simply doesn't focus fast enough, and when it hunts, I can eat lunch and dinner before it's back on track again. This one is seriously out of focus (or maybe it's not sharp because it's shot wide open, who knows?), and she turned away before I could get a proper lock.

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    And another. The S5 would probably have been much better for these photos, or even better; an S6 with a zillion megapixels and clean ISO 1600. 3200? And a Nikkor 70-200mm f/4.0 AF-S VR. Did you hear that, Nikon? Fuji?

    D80 with 70-300 ED @ 165mm and f/5.0

    They are great, Jorgen, the little concentrated girl is priceless.

    Do you think Fuji will continue the 'S' dSLR development, or is it a closed chapter ?

    I believe it's a closed chapter, but you never know with Fuji. They have surprised us before. They were considered out of the DSLR business by most before they launched the S5 as well.

    I do believe that they will launch an m4/3 camera this year though. They've been a member of the consortium from the start, and it would make sense when looking at their current line-up.

    The exit of Fuji from the F-mount and the lack of a compact, pro-spec telephoto zoom from Nikon makes me put a question mark next to my future Nikon investments. Canon (70-200 f/4), Pentax (50-135 f/2.8 and 60-250 f/4) and Olympus (50-200 f/2.8-3.5) all have zoom lenses that would work great for my travel photography. Nikon only has the 70-300 f/4.5-5.6. The build quality is ok, but not more, and the image quality beyond 200mm is less than stellar with high resolution DX sensors, although a lot better than on my ED version.

    Both of the shots of Claire are really nice, but this is something special. Love the treatment here too. Very nice work.

    The sawdust shot's very cool. Substantial piece of wood. Central Maine. This could be 7th or 8th growth? Cheers.

    Thanks Corlan! Got the Noct about a year ago out of Hong Kong (ebay) Thought it was crazy at 2g's but it keeps going up in price averaging like you said around 3500. Its the ais in mint condition and rarely comes off the D3.

    Jorgen, i like the composition, the clean HL and the smooth shadows on this last one.
    Question: with the 17mm range did you have to heavily correct the perspective in PS here? The result is pretty impressive in this regard, considering.

    You are right. Lots of perspective correction, and after that, "Warp" correction to get the lines of the stupa right. The colour of the sky is corrected as well (darker, more saturated, Chiang Mai is a city that suffers heavily from air pollution, and it is clearly visible in photos).

    My Tamron seems to be less sharp on the left side than on the right btw., even at f/8

    Probably not in a cheerful mood lately...









    btw, do the backgrounds count as brick walls for the ban thing?

    Corlan, i like the contrast,grain & surreal feel in both of these. It reminds me of a show i used to watch as a kid called "Dark Shadows"! I identify with your mood today..

    Corlan,
    I suppose we get what we pay for, and this is a question of improper QC. The Tamron is still great value for money, at least the version without optical stabilisation. Here in Thailand, it's around a fifth of the price of the Nikkor, and since it's much lighter and smaller, it's very suitable for travelling. I think the version with stabilisation has a different optical formula, but it's also much more expensive.

    To get small size and a reasonable price, I'm tempted by the Pentax K-x with the Pentax/Tokina 16-50/2.8, a combo that costs more or less the same as the Nikkor alone, but I'm tempted by so many things

    Another possibility would be the Tamron 28-75 f/2.8 plus the Tokina 11-16 f/2.8. To me, the longer/wider perspectives would be more useful than the lacking 16-28mm.

    Very lovely cemetery shots, particularly the first one

    Khutzeymateen, British Columbia. The bear tried to bite the zodiac just after this shot. It jumped back when it's teeth bounced off. Cheers.
