Nikon FM2N, Nikkor 28mm f2.8 AIS, Sensia, in the Desert

  1. Here are some shots I made on a recent trip to the desert. In addition to my Nikon DSLR, I decided to carry along my FM2N and AIS 28mm Nikkor. I'm quite glad that I did!
  2. Snapshot (forgive pun) decision. My favourite is O11-11A, the splash of red colour helps offset the drab lighting. Soft, flat lighting is great for revealing details which would otherwise be hidden in deep shadow but not so good for showing shapes and textures. Though I think direct sunlight would not have been desirable some direction to the light, other than directly overhead, would have been an asset. Perhaps a hazy sunlit day. That said I think you have had a very satisfying outing. Nice combo of camera and lens. At this snow filled time of year at my location your location looks inviting. Wish I were there. Best, LM.
  3. Wow, Reed...those are beautiful! Take that FM2N out more often!
  4. It looks like a great place for a 'walkabout' and just general chilling. I wish I could say that I liked even one of your shots, but in any case this isn't the critique forum. ;-)
    It seems that one or two might be a touch over exposed (e.g. frame 27). And one or two look a bit underexposed judging from the lovely, mild saturation (e.g. frame 24).
