    Happy Nikon Wednesday, all. Last Sunday morning we enjoyed a semi-annual indulgence, that being a dawn Carbohydrate Pilgrimage to Bethesda's own Tastee Diner. I first ate something bad for me there in ... 1976, I think. THey've updated the jukebox technology, but that's pretty much all that's changed. Same menu, same dishes and silverware, same ambiance, and same maple syrup. It's illegal to leave without having a stack of pancakes. Spent a recent morning in a greasy landmark with your Nikon gear? Share a photo!

  4. Love the photo Matt. I think I'll have pancakes in the morning! No such indulgences of that kind for me this week. My indulgence was Monday morning sloshing around in a yucky canal watching various forms of wildlife; mostly little minnows, a turtle, and of course...bugs. Second time I've been able to get a shot of mating damselflies, so will share that one. D90/Sigma 150mm/Sigma 1.4x teleconverter @ 1/180, f/8. ISO 400.

    Here's something from a session I did last weekend.

  13. Good Morning Nikonistas,
    Mmmmm Pancakes, great shot Matt all that's missing is the Bacon & scrambled Egg...suddenly my cornflakes seem inadequate this morning! Sorry...anyways...
    Here's my contribution to this weeks visual carnival, have been taking shots at work of the guys in the shops making all manner of things...

  14. The day has just started and already their are some great shots posted.
    Mine this week is from a recent trip to Cheeckwood Botanical Gardens outside Nashville, TN. A beautifil place. It is an HDR and I kept it as "normal" as I could with wanting the highlights to stand out.
    I used my Nikon D90, Sigma 24-70 @28mm, f2.8, 1/320, iso 200

  15. I recently had the opportunity to visit Olympic National Forest in Washington State...a simply stunning place that I need to get back to very soon. Visiting such a place with a baby does limit the amount of hiking and photographing one can do, but I did manage to get a few good shots. This is one of my favorites. It's Sul Doc Falls, a very reachable destination (about 1.5 miles round-trip).

  16. Happy Wednesday, everybody -- already many great photos.
    Mine was taken last week at a dog show.

  17. Newport Beach Pier in Newport Beach, California, is a popular place in the summer time. People come here to fish and to have fun with their loved ones , whiling away their times on the beach or watching other people having fun. This picture was taken in the afternoon, when the sun was low on the horizon, and shone brightly at the pillars of the pier.

  21. Good morning All...My contribution this week is a shot of a small town's fireworks for Bastille Day. I had never shot fireworks before and found it quite challenging.

  22. Greetings all. Another week, another wonderful wednesday. And for a change of pace a chicken and mushroom pie for breakfast. From my side another pic from my recent steam train outing. A sad reminder of the throw away mindset of current times. Have a wonderful wednesday all!

  23. Thanks for the kind comments on my daisies last week; here's something unlike both daisies and carbo loading - some rocks, weathered from the Permian to the ice ages, on a local hill. B+W seemed to suit them.

  25. Hello Everybody,
    thank you very much for the kind comments on my photo last week, I very much appreciate them.
    This week a photo from my very interesting photo shoot I did on Saturday, I had one of the burlesque performers from Brisbane modelling beautiful military uniforms for a new uniform hire company, we had such a wonderful time and the uniforms are outstanding.
    Have a lovely week and I look forward to seeing all your photos.

  26. Concert in the park had just ended when a father started tossing his little boy playfully into the air. I sensed a silhouette opportunity but knew if I was going to get the shot, I'd have to get it now. I focused, set the exposure to aperture mode, and hoped for the best while shooting directly into the late evening sun.

  27. Took this one while doing a photoshoot out on the beach in Winthrop Massachusetts. Just before 8 PM, the light took on a gorgeous hue and the sun was setting just enough to shoot right into it as a sailboat happened by.

    Hi Nikon fans! Nikon Wednesday is constantly improving its own standards! Great pics here everywhere! Today I'm putting a rain picture I took last Saturdai in Poona, India while I was visiting there for a conference.

  33. Good morning Nikon People!
    This week I had the opportunity to attend a general rehearsal of a dance company, in a theatre a few hours before the show. Almost no light, as the technicians where still setting up and programming the lights. I could set up two flashes, but only where they let me, rather far out of their way. Once started I was not able to move them around or adjust anymore... Nice practice under restricted conditions though!
    Nikon D90, 55-200, Sb600 with CTO gel, and SB-80DX

  35. Greetings from the depths of northern Ontario.
    The shad flies have been out for a couple of weeks now. Their larval form lives in the lake and they emerge at about the same time and head directly for any light source ay night. This is a little guy that was on the front window (rotated). They don't do much damage, unless you are trying to catch fish!

  37. Good Morning Wednesday :)
    Past weekend had a chance to shoot model at an urban area with graffiti on the wall. It was nice photo shoot due to my first time outdoor portrait with a model. Used Nikon D90 with Tokina 50-135mm and SB600 mounted on a hot shoe with diffuser.
    Shot in Aperture f/4 1/100 ISO 200.

    PS: Looks like buttons on the "Response" are not working , trying to link the image from other website and it's not opening a window to enter the site url. But popul link is working on "Confirm" page.
     
  38. Good Nikon Wednesday Morning to all. Great way to start a day is by admiring all the wonderful shots submitted to this thread. Matt I am a sucker for a good stack of pancakes and those looked pretty darn good. Mine was taken while doing some late afternoon Bass fishing.

  39. Great photos so far. Mine is of a Malachite taken at Wilderness National Park this Sunday.

  40. Wonderful shots so far today!
    This summer, the anoles are quite plentiful. Trying to find something other than an anole, I got up before sunrise. I was greeted with high humidity and dew point which produced this wonderful dew. An anole is what I found , and seeing him covered in dew, I was quite delighted.

  41. There's an area on Nantucket that looks something like the African savannah. Inspired by this, someone with a sense of humor has installed plywood gazelles.

  47. Good morning, Jana's Marine brought a smile to my face, a much different look than the Marines I work with. My photo this week is from a day at the Tuckahoe steam and gas festival where I was operating a 1917 Peerless steam tractor and getting the steam pressure up. The 'eyes' are flames going into the fire tubes.

  48. A runner competing in a half-marathon two weeks ago here in Milwaukee It was hot and humid and the race officials didn't have enough water on hand, causing hundreds of runners to get over-heated and dehydrated.

  49. Happy Wednesday everybody!
    Nice pictures again and still, since haven't been in the forum for a while.

  63. Here is a picture from a newborn session I had Saturday. There is nothing I love more than the pure sweetness and newness of an infant. This little lady was just about a week old! Taken with my beloved Nikon D2x in natural light.
    This would be my *FIRST* post in this forum! (cue clapping)
    Thank you!

  68. Happy Wednesday to everyone again. Thanks to Chris Wick for mentioning my photo last week. This weeks photo is from a recent session with my 24/2.8 lens used in reverse, giving both high magnification and very shallow depth of field. This picture was taken at f16. The entire flower is only about a centimeter across, and it more than fills the frame on my D50.

  73. Happy Wednesday everyone, and clap clap Melissa!
    My favorites this week are:
    Matt's pancakes
    Finlay's grinding
    John F's rocks
    Apurva's rain picture
    John R's shad fly
    Roberta's anole
    Panayotis's radio masts
    Its been wet here in the UK, but the flowers and trees are doing well as result. The farmer local to me has left a triangular shaped patch of field to go wild and its now full of poppies. I took a stroll down there with the dog when the showers stopped for a bit.....

  74. The gentleman was taking picuture of his family sitting on a huge starfish. Nikon D3s, ISO 6400, 1/60s, 50mm AFS at f2.8...oh, no, let me back to reality...
    00Z4Hu-381641584.jpg
     
  75. Here's a girl jumping during a wedding reception we attended this week. Although it probably suffers from motion blur and possibly missed focus it's still one of my favorite shots from the day. I'm not sure which 60's song they were jumping to. Or it could have been that Chacha slide thing.
    00Z4I2-381643584.jpg
     
  76. The view from my office window...The blackbird was harrassing the hawk and briefly landed on it's back. A series of rapid shots got this lucky moment. Unfortunately shooting handheld through a window with reflective coating on it.

  77. Here is a view of Washington DC from Crystal City as a commercial flight comes in for a landing at National Airport.
    This was taken from the rotating resturant at the top of the Double Tree hotel. I spent some time there on July 3rd weekend with a group of 12 ladies having a class reunion class of 68 from Hoboken, NJ. Fun ladies, very modish and up for a fashion shoot type session around DC. I think I must really have one of the best jobs in the world. A camera gives me access to people and places I would never otherwise encounter.

  85. Little late, but here's a photo from where I will be in a week and shows that old lenses can still do well even on newer digital cameras. Taken with a D200 and an MF 80-200 4.5 (yeah the old one) at Lark in the Morning camp in the early morning. [​IMG]
