    rayyan: Great birding shots (dead or alive ... )
    You have a lyric way with words. And with images.

    Steve: Cool bodybuilderfitness shot. And, as usual, Excellent Black & White postprocessing,
    I wish such a splendid postprocessing could be done in a RAW converter like Capture One or Capture NX. If that is possible you need to teach me some day

    Woody: So many excellent captures on your photo blog !

    Matt: Wonderful mood in your 'staring at the river' picture. And a nice and smooth rendering.


    (P.S. To Matt, Steve and rayyan: Thanks for the kind comments to my 'reflection' shot).

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Jorgen/Lloyd/Steen: Thank you all

    Steen: The soft tone and the quality of light in these is marvelous. Simple compositions with horizontal stacked elements. The first and the last with the boat/person and car silhouettes sort of anchor the photo with the sea, mountains and sky unfurling out from there. You can sense the time of day. Nice set of photos. Cheers, Matt.

    Osman: I like the cat's eyes. This one though talks to me about a civilization
    past, being taken over by the undergrowth. But speaks of its elegance even now.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Osman: Great B & W's. The composition in the first is very cool with the view through the window, one of those "ahha" moments. The black cat photo's wonderful with those eyes coming out of the blackness. Too bad you caught it going through the garbage.

    Another niece. This from a senior portrait session we did this afternoon. I still can't believe this little tomboy, who used to run all over the place with a dirty face and skinned knees, and who regularly beat up her brothers, is about to graduate high school!! When did that happen?!? Neither tomboy, nor little any more. Somewhere along the way, she morphed into a beautiful young woman. (Still loves to run... competing in both track and cross-country in HS.)

    D3, 70-200 VRII, ISO 200, fill with SB-900 set to -1.7 EV, and California Sunbounce "Sun Mover" reflector. Otherwise, straight out of the camera:

    Today is probably our greatest holiday - Great Victory Holiday (9th May). My grandfathers were at this war. For the last 65 years there has been parade every 9th May on the Red Sq. in Moscow. Anyone can't go there and there are no tickets to parade. That's all by invitation. But once a year I can see the aviation flying over my house (well, not only ):

    Nice work everyone! Really like Lloyds portrait. It's interesting how Senior Portraits have evolved. Or maybe it's just the High School girls that have evolved?

    And the statue, red hat, surreal planes, and interesting brick wall are all terrific. Nicely done!

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    This has become something of a project for me. It's a group of six apple trees standing in a field across from the cemetery. I have to figure out the right shooting position and time of day to highlight their unique stature in the field.

    This doesn't make it, but serves as another failed experiment that will point to a solution. I'm determined to find the right shot. The good news is, it's not far from the house and I can go when the mood hits.

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    A different kind of a portrait.



    D40x, Sigma 30/1.4 1/20s, f/1.4 ISO1600. Reflected Ultraviolet light capture.

    This was a test shot from a latest dedicated UV cam I did. My first one (now dead) was the first of its kind anywhere (http://www.flickr.com/photos/vivek-i...7600032172823/). Quite possibly second such camera.

    I made this converted UV cam was for Bjørn Rørslett.

    Alex: Great photos! Are the ribbons on the tree patterned after military service ribbons for WWII? Cheers, Matt.

    Tim: An interesting problem. It would seem hard to make the apple trees stand out from the woods behind. I'm sure you tried it when they were all in bloom? Please share the "right shot" with us.

    I made this converted UV cam was for Bjørn Rørslett.
    Vivek: Unique photo. I'll have to study your Nikon Gear thread a little more. Cheers, Matt

    Wow! So much great stuff!!!

    Osman... I LOVE those shots!

    Alex.. the VE shots are amazing! Loved the news coverage here in the USA about US troops marching in Red Square in celebration alongside all the allied forces.

    Steen! I want to go to Croatia some day as well.

    Great stuff from everyone! I need to get out and do some fun shooting soon!

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Still too much to do, but here's one from Saturday. The colours on my internet computer is totally off, but I hope the photo looks ok. Their uniforms are supposed to be white and red, not white and orange. Can somebody confirm that they look white and red?

    D80 with 80-200 AF-S @ 80mm and f/2.8

    Jefferson

    Trying to photography Jefferson's statue during tourist season in a major bitch. I found the angle I wanted quickly, then waited. First, about a half an hour for a group with three baby carriages on the bench behind the statue to leave. They were followed by forty-three buses filled with tourists of all sizes, ages and mobility factors. Finally, after 90 minutes, as the sun edge light the president, I got this shot.

    D3x with 45 TC-E, post processing with edging overlayed.

    Nice shot, Jorgen, but the reds do look a bit orange on my monitor.

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Jorgen, on my screen your lovely group portrait looks fine. I think fhe colors look great and sparkling, and rather clean white and red. But of course, I wasn't there.

    Aboudd, very good composition.

    Nice b/w series, Osman !

    rayyan, great shots from Istanbul. And Oslo. And Rome. And ...

    Lloyd, nice niece portrait. Sounds cool too

    Matt, brilliant bright red hat !

    Alex, great white-billed flights hunting over your house, stay safe inside

    Tim, how about making the tree group a Quattro Stagioni project

    Vivek, yet another remarkable UV light image. Please let us know the link if Bjørn Rørslett writes about the Nikon D40x camera you converted.


    Oh, and thank you for the kind words rayyan, Steve, Matt and Jason.

    Jorgen: +1. A bit orange on my 15" MacBook Pro, here at work.
