    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Steve... I ride a Cannondale CAAD9. Love it, great for crit racing as it is rock solid. Can dive into a 90 degree turn at 35mph w/o a second thought and a beast in sprints.

    But my team is a Trek team and if I ever get up to the 'A' team I will have to get a Madone. But for now....

    How about you??

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Not much time to be online the past few days, but there has been some marvelous photography posted here lately.

    Matt: Always love your 'around Seattle' shots, especially those of Pike's Place Market.
    JohnH: Very nice PJ work. Stay safe... you too, Jorgen.
    Rayyan: simply amazing work... as ever. You have some very handsome sons.
    Congratulations on the wedding as well.
    Jason: Nice shots from Mellow Johnny's. BTW, I'm a cyclist (actually, triathlete) myself... currently riding a Cervelo. Great sport.
    David K: Oh yeah!!

    Anyone I may have missed... great stuff from you too, no doubt!!

    The situation is growing a little tense, I think. These images are from a couple of weeks ago, when it was all a fun event. Well, mainly.

    Rubber bullets and teargas today, plus BTS - rail system - closed.

    Trying to decide whether I will brave it all tomorrow and try for some more images.

    Enjoy.

    rayan: Congratulations on your son's wedding. Your boys are very handsome. The warm coloring on the middle photo is great. Nicely done.

    And, at least over here, you wouldn't have to pay for the wedding. Your son's wife's family would. I noted that because my daughter got married last September.

    Jason: Looks like fun. I like the group shot. Are they roadies or mountain bikers? "Mellow Johnny's"? Has Lance moved up from Texas?

    Matt,

    Thanks much, my friend. Number 1 was a grab shot with the camera hanging around my neck, I think with the ZM 35mm f2. I left it a bit off kilter. The beach shot was with the CV 20mm f3.5 lens.

    Ciao,

    Matt and All,

    After seeing the news reports this morning I have decided discretion is advisable. With up to 18 people killed, the situation could get even more dangerous and I am not a war photographer.

    So today I am key-wording images...

    Cheers,

    John

    And, at least over here, you wouldn't have to pay for the wedding. Your son's wife's family would. I noted that because my daughter got married last September.

    Matt, appreciate your gracious comments. Weddings here can become an expensive proposition. The groom has to dish out a heavy amount, and my
    son turned to his father! The mother was too generous, and her little boy
    got scot free.

    may your daughter and her groom have a long and prosperous life.

    Regards.

    Spring is very busy time so I only have time to some snapshots during my walks. But no time to PP and publish them. And of course I look into this thread to see all the beauty from around the world.

    Ok, let's catch up just a little bit (D3x, DC 135/2):

    Lloyd... P4 for you?

    Steve.. Niiiice set up. I gave up on expensive wheelsets when I went from triathlete back to road racer. At 6'3" 200+ lbs a light and aero wheelset doesn't do much for me anymore. That and the thought of an $1000 wheel taco-ing on a curb makes me cringe.

    Matt.. The guy that owns the shop rode with Lance on USPS. So it's the first shop outside of the original Mellow Johnny's to have MJ gear. Kinda a big deal.

    Lol. No, I'd rather spend the $$ on camera equipment. The P4 might look good (I have two friends who got them last year), but I don't think what it would give me, in terms of time advantage, would justify the expense. My wife rides a P3C for tri and TT, and a Soloist Carbon on the road. I have a Lightspeed Blade for tri and TT, and also ride a Soloist Carbon. I will confess that I'd love to get a P2C at some point. My favorite tri bike I've ever owned was the P2K.

    Some macro shots from the D700 and 105mm f2.8 AF-S VR lens. I've done so little macro with the D700 and this lens, so I'm trying things out. My Gitzo lost a bolt from one of the legs so it was a bit wonky!

    Being able to use LiveView is great. Too bad the D700 doesn't have a pivoting LCD though. Processed with Topaz Detail 2.

    Thank to you too Matt. I am always amazed at the (lack of) DOF with macro, even at very small apertures. It's really hard to get everything within the focus zone!

    Being able to use LiveView is great. Too bad the D700 doesn't have a pivoting LCD though. Processed with Topaz Detail 2.

    +1, I LOVE the red elements, especially the person in the red jacket. You couldn't have designed it better. Is that another lighthouse or a windmill on the bump in the horizon. The more I look at this, the more I enjoy it. Well done.

    Getting the finger

    Not what you think .. ;-)

    This is a study from my monument series. The protruding finger is on a statue of FDR at the memorial in Washington, D.C. I assume that this is the hand that signed all the bills comprising the New Deal.

    Osman: Thanks. It was handheld. I took it up photographing bears, also. Frankly, it's too heavy to lug around. I sold it. I'm hoping the 300 f/2.8 with the TC-E 20 III will replace it with less weight, and comparable IQ (or at least close). If, I win the lottery, I'll get a 400mm f/2.8!

    Steve: It'd be a really big "makeup" kit! See, above. It was impressive with the full camo cover.

    Great stuff all of you, Simon, Rayyan, Matt, Alex, Aboudd (nice to see some of your terrific DC shots around here).


    Have a question for Matt though: how many Duvels did you have to suffer through to get the shades on the glass right?
