    Matt, I too like many aspects of both images. If you could take the "Whites in # 2 & incorporate them into the first shot, i think that would do it for me. The clouds pop more in # 2. Other than that....Breathtaking photo's!

    Tim- great story and impressive work. Can't wait to see what's next. No way we'd get tired, on the contrary thanks for sharing. And, well, let's face it... you have to keep your hands occupied before winter gives the pond's life -for sure- quite a welcomed break!

    Jorgen, it's good to have some news. Hopefully things are getting at least a bit better for your father. One thing for sure, he is lucky to have you around, so close. Our best wishes to the two of you.

    And btw, both the photo and the title are great.

    i will have a lot to catch up on when I get back. We just got to Laos, but here are a few from Cambodia... Be kind, these are pretty much right out of the camera. No PS :-D









    Hope everyone is well! Love it here!

    I like the CD sales table. Exactly what comes to mind when I think of that part of the world (never been there myself).

    Thank you Jorgen. No flash, just reflected light from the wood and snow beneath.


    Best wishes for your Dad.

    Thanks for the info...I didn't know a timber frame from an A-frame until having one built in 2000. Recycled 100 yo old growth was used. I got an appreciation for "real" wooden beams...I think our largest was 16" X 12" x 18'.

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    So many beautiful shots from all of you that I could barely find time to shoot from viewing your shots in awe... At last I took my D700 and 70-200/2.8 on a boat trip along the Bosphorus. This time I configured the camera so that I ended up with in-camera b+w jpegs as well.
    I would like to present a few examples; comments and criticisms are most welcome...
    Best regards,
    Osman

    DavidK: Nice; but,. scary!

    Jorgen: Nice, and not so scary.

    Osman: Nice shooting. So these are the B & W jpegs as processed by the D700. Very good. The first and fourth are my favorites. The fourth's a nice valentine's day shot. Probably no such day in Turkey? Cheers,

    Thank you Matt, I also liked the jpeg performance of D700. And yes, we do have St.Valentine's Day celebrations here. Personally, I find them and similar 'days' a bit commercial, but behave nicely nevertheless

    Fulton

    Show off ! record waves at the Maverick what 25ft? Florida we get maybe one day a season above 10ft and are happy with 6ft. Great shots of the barrel.

    Did you shoot from a pier or wall ..you had a good angle on the wave .

    The golf shot is nice ... great position .

    Still shooting the 200-400 Vr ? I am getting better with it ...but still don t much like it with the 1.4X .

    **************

    "After a strong winter storm in the northern Pacific Ocean, waves can routinely crest at over 25 feet (8m) and top out at over 50 feet (15m). The break is caused by an unusually-shaped underwater rock formation."

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mavericks_%28location%29

    Of course when I went there a few years ago, they had "record" small waves.

    i wish i was on a pier or wall--less of a (excuse me) barf-fest. the break is pretty far offshore, so you need to be on a jet ski or boat. it was the roughest trip out there in years. i shot a 400 2.8 which is pretty heavy and since we were moving around a challenge to keep straight. maybe you saw the press--the organizers aren't the brightest lights and set up their tent on the beach (rocks). that drew a bunch of spectators--well there is a big wall (as in rock cliff) right behind them, so of course a few large waves came in and knocked them over--broken legs, bloody faces...real nice.
    glad i was far offshore.

    Terrific job, Bob.
    Guess ESPN or SI, CNN won't take long before publishing the wave shot from the golf course, too.

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Osman - quite interesting try. IMHO it's one of your best Bosphorus series so far.
    And yes, the seagull one is outstanding. All of them good, though.

    Never seriously tried jpeg+bw out of camera myself, might give it a try then. Generally i like a tad more contrast for my own use... are the posted pics strictly -resized and possibly cropped- out of camera, or did you apply somme PP?

    Thank you Corlan. As for the contrast, you are absolutely right. The only thing that I can say in defense may be that D700 jpegs lose some detail if contrast is increased; this was not an issue with Leica M8.
    I did some levels correction in PS CS4, but that is all.

    Amazing wave shots, Fultonpics!

    There was a big aurora tonight, though it was mostly cloudy here. Too bad it was not clear, because it looked like the entire sky behind the clouds was green.







    My photos are here: http://www.stuartrichardson.com and more recent work here: http://stuartrichardson.tumblr.com/ Please have a look at my book!
    My lab is here: http://www.customphotolab.is and on facebook

    Thanks for the details . We have a pier that goes out maybe 100yards out...its far enough that I can get behind the waves ..but the largest waves I have seen were probably about 15ft . But I can get really close and no boat.

    Nice photographs Stuart. I think that the cloudy sky actually adds to the images. Particularly in the last two. I hope i get to see skies like that someday.

    Great images, Osman. I really like that one of the couple embracing. The clarity of the boat in the first is quite impressive as well.

    I both agree with the comment, and the hope. Nicely done, Stuart.
