    Thanks, Lloyd!

    As a side note kinda question.. how do you pick between your Nikon and Leica kits. I've been suffering from a mean and serious Leica lust lately! You do wonderful work with each one!

    Thanks Jason, I appreciate that. Honestly, I'm all Leica at heart. I've been shooting Leica since 1968, and other than my mother's Brownie, it was the only camera I knew growing up. My father bought his new in Germany in 1946, and it was what we had at home. (BTW, I still have and use my Dad's camera.)

    I do really like my Nikon... and LOVE some things about it (I've been shooting Nikon since 1973), and the choice of which to use when these days really has to do with my subject. If my primary subject matter really calls for longer glass, auto focus, and higher frame rates, and/or low light capability, I go for the Nikon. This past weekend, at Bryce Canyon for example, my primary subject was a cross-country ski race, so I opted for the Nikon, and used it for my landscape shots in the National Park as well (last year at this same event, I took both kits). For about anything else, I tend to opt for the Leica.

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Lloyd,

    It was a harrowing place. We visited the Killing Fields and S-21. S-21 is the prison that they kept everyone before marching them 10 KM down the road. It was formerly a high school. Both were harrowing places.

    I shot with an old M3 as a kid along with my Minolta kit. I will have a digital M, it's just a matter of when. But for right now, my Nikon works wonderfully and I feel like I'm re-learning to shoot since I bought the CZ 21 2.8 It has me thinking more about the shot itself instead of the spraying and praying that auto focus and 8 fps can get you into doing.

    The first shot was with my old 35-70 2.8 that I love. All the sharpness of my 28-70 with half the weight and size. Great for travel and most street. The second shot was with my CZ 21. I was torn for ages between the CZ and the 14-24. For practicality's sake, I went with the CZ and I'm glad I did.

    Hey Steve... any "problems" with the 70-200 VRI on the D3? I hear complaints, but don't see the problems and kinda need that focal length. Just plain wow on those images!!

    Complaints about the 70-200VR on FX (D3/D3x/D700) were mostly overrated IMHO, depending of course on how much you needed sharpness into the corners. For the vast majority of shots, particularly if portraits or other such subjects that encourage you out of the corners, the lens is fabulous.

    If you need pin sharp edge performance then it falls down slightly although it's by no means the coke bottle bottom lens that some would have you believe at all. However, the new one IS better ...

    I have both, and found some vignetting with the old one at wider apertures on full frame. I actually like that for portraiture. It's gone when the lens is stepped down, usually by f11. I posted some test shots earlier in this thread. I do agree, however, that overall the new one is better.

    Lloyd, Steve, Jason; thank you!

    Steve, your b+w's are amazing, especially the first shot.

    Lloyd, very creative perspective.

    Man, I leave the computer for an hour, and find many amazing shots when I return. Life never seemed so challenging before...

    wow, quite an active day around here!
    Real great stuff.

    Graham, you really mastered the semi long exposure here, with a great combination of light, dynamic range, framing and movement. Splendid.


    Steve, seconding the gang here, great series again. Cast a vote for the first one for negative space, then the children on daddy's shoulders are very cool, too.

    Those two pictures above reminds me if needed that i need to get a 200mm again.

    Well Alex you definitely should walk the camera more often. Great palette of whites and softly contrasting colors here.



    LLoyd- is it from the series you posted last summer (?) Kinda remember a similar "steup" with great results but can't find it readily. Maybe we're starting to have too many pages on this thread

    It was taken the same day, and is similar to one posted earlier, but not the same image.

    Steve, seconding the gang here, great series again. Cast a vote for the first one for negative space, then the children on daddy's shoulders are very cool, too.

    Those two pictures above reminds me if needed that i need to get a 200mm again.
    Thanks Very Much C!

    This shot was taken outside of a club in the middle of the afternoon during the New Year's celebration a week or so ago in Laos.

    Thank you for sharing these powerful images, Jason !
    The sad subject reminded me about a poster made by KAP (a former danish Communist Workers' Party) in 1978 right after a couple of party members had visited Pol Pot and his Khmer Rouge gang in Cambodia.
    The danish poster, saying "Don’t people smile in Kampuchea anymore ?", should demonstrate that the cambodian people were actually happy with the so-called "liberation" by Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge regime

    Here's a reproduction of the disgraceful poster.
    I apologize if this is too off topic, I just think it is so extremely far out that I had to share my speechless frustration with you.




    But back to your images. Jason, I especially think your girl-on-the-bike shot is absolutely wonderful

    Yes, I'm still around, and so is my father. Most of my time disappears into thin air though, so taking photos has come to a brutal halt. Yesterday, I decided to start bringing in food to the hospital for my father, since what they serve there is mostly unhealthy as well as inedible. So now, he gets Norwegian breakfast, Thai lunch and dinner from one of his favourite restaurants. Here's from today's dinner:
