Nikon Wednesday 2011: #46

Discussion in 'Nikon' started by uplandlife, Nov 15, 2011.

  1. Important: please keep your image under 700 pixels on the longest side for in-line viewing, and please keep the FILE SIZE UNDER 300kb. Note that this includes photos hosted off-site (at Flickr, Photobucket, your own site, etc).

    Are you new to this thread? The general guidelines for these Wednesday threads are right here. Remember: only one image each week!​
    Good Wednesday to you, Nikon folks. It's a busy time of year, and I have to get the fun stuff mixed in with the work stuff. This week, it's from an ongoing project with a dealer of fancy trucks and trailers. We ran ourselves out of light at the end of a long day shooting last week, so I metered for the sunset sky, and dragged the shutter out to a third of a second. I used PWs to trigger some speedlights for the interior of the trailer and to sparkle up the outside of the rig to show some texture.

    Sometimes running out of light is a good thing! Had your Nikon gear out in the dark? Share a photo!

  6. Thanks to those who commented on my photo last week. I adopted this wonderful boy last year. He is a great pal. D300s, Nikkor 70-300, w in camera flash.
    00Zbw0-415989684.jpg
     
  7. Great shots already. Great Weather in NYC so decided to take a walk along the river. This is one of the many shots I was able to capture. A week past prime for foliage but still good.

  12. a few weeks ago I scanned in a lot of my old work from film. This is one of my favorites.
    No EXIF data back then so I don't know which lens or the f stop, but I'm pretty sure it's 1/60 s since it was flash. Film was TMAX 100. I used three lights (Novatron 500 Ws kit). Main light was 7" reflector positioned above her head (paramount lighting). Fill was probably an umbrella. Third light was a hair light, almost certainly a 7" reflector. Background was black velvet.
    This printed pretty well in the darkroom, but it is MUCH easier in LightRoom. I can do my dodging and burning ONCE and then make as many prints as I want by pressing a button. Yay!
    00ZbwF-415999584.jpg
     
  13. Many thanks to everyone who commented on my image last week. For this shot, I followed a class of preschoolers and their teachers as they went exploring in the forest on a surprisingly pleasant November day in Oregon. The intent was to capture a little of the kids' sense of wonder in nature. But really, just getting them to hold still with their discoveries was an achievement!

  14. Fall on my windshield.
    00ZbwL-416003584.jpg

  17. Morning Nikonistas
    Interesting stuff!
    One from Remembrance Sunday. The formal act of remembrance over and the bulk of the wreaths carefully removed and on show inside the adjacent hall, a solitary wreath being left as a mark of respect on the War memorial to the Fallen.

  18. From a day trip to Yellowstone National Park, just a few days before the summer roads closed for the season. There were very few other visitors - such a contrast to summer. My grand vista photos were taken with my Pentax 67. My D80 w/ Tamron 17-50 captured this frozen scene in a pullout along the Yellowstone River.

  19. A wacky building near home.
    00Zbwg-416013584.jpg
     
  20. A quick scan, taken few weeks back from a underground parking hall construction site nearby. Seems that the light leaks on my FE are getting worse, need to fix it as soon as the roll inside is finished...
    00Zbwn-416015684.jpg
     
  21. [​IMG] This was taken in St.georges Anglican Church downtown (Peel st) in Montreal. There were 3 baptisms and the little fellow here was listening intently to the sermon (*_*).
    While all of the images are nice but a couple caught my eye: Michael ferron, Christopher Sperry and Martin Z. Thanks to those who mentioned my image last week.

  23. Well, fall is about to become history. Before the steps are covered with snow days on end in this Northeastern town of Concord, MA, I share this piece.
     
  24. The end of autumn; wind and water take the leaves.

  29. So while I was figuring out other ways to misuse the 85/1.4D I decided to see how poorly it would do with an unsuspecting couple + UV filter while shot into the setting sun.

  32. My image above was taken with the D7000, not D700.
     
  33. Good morning,
    Christopher Sperry, great image of the frozen Yellowstone!
    This is a shot in my garden. Years ago, friends insisted on planting a witch hazel bush as a house gift. Ever since, this bush has rewarded us with electric fall foliage in the morning when the morning sun back lights the leaves.

  34. Happy Wednesday! Lovely photos so far. This week I'm posting another critter who is usually found no farther north than the south Texas area. It's one of my favorite butterflies; the Guava Skipper. (D90/Sigma 150mm@1/200, f/7.1, ISO 800) Thanks for the comments last week on my photo. They were appreciated. :)

  35. Well this is like shooting in the dark. Most indoor gyms have very low light. Shot this high school region final match on Sat.

  36. Good morning to all fellow lovers of Nikon. My shot this morning wasn't exactly out in the dark but I was inside of a dimly lit little gift shop in Stonington, Maine shooting through a window that overlooks the harbor and the ever present lobster boats.
    00Zbyz-416079584.jpg
     
  37. Flat on my back the last couple of weeks with the worst flu I've had in years I'm reduced to staying inside scanning old images, rather than chance pneumonia. Here's one from healthier times. 1995 America's Cup, Louis Vuitton eliminations. Australia, headed by famed skipper John Bertrand, flying a spinnaker on a downwind leg. Shot with an Fe2 and my old trusty manual focus 35-135 while bouncing around in the swells. Hope you like it.

  42. Hello all,
    I was obviously not the only photographer in the modern museum. My camera was Nikon D200, lens Sigma 18-50 f/2.8 shot at 50mm, f/3.5, 1/100 s, ISO200.

  43. Greetings from the depths of northern Ontario.
    Harry(L) and Hattie have decided to start their own 'occupy' movement. Here, they are occupying the sunroom. Their demands? More treats, more walks, less time that mom and dad are away, free run of the house, more toys,......
    Negotiations continue.

  56. To clarify my photo description: The frozen scene was contained in a pothole of a paved pullout along the Yellowstone River. I usually don't include pavement in my nature photography, but the black lines are created by the asphalt beneath the ice. It was my decision to saturate the blue tones when processing the RAW files, creating a somewhat more-colorful-than-life interpretation.

  62. Wonderful pictures today.
    This is a (very) quick picture from the Zoo last week. One of the female gorillas was sitting on the other side of a glass wall and she attracted a large crowd of people snapping pictures. Fortunately, I got a turn before she became agitated and left.

  63. Happy Wednesay all. Here is a Key West pirate from last week.

  64. Good Wednesday Morning Everyone,
    So many accomplished photographers, so many beautiful shots, you are all inspiring! My favorites this week are all leaves; I should have tried some myself. Christopher Sperry, Le Giao, and John Harper--my congratulations. Another standout for me is Jared Youtsey's "Stella." I took my shot last night in my shop; I thought the colored wires were interesting. Hope you like them too.

  71. Another fantastic Wednesday with such great images to consider. I've been working quite a bit on adding to my reflections, so here's one from last week at the creek.

  72. Thank you for commenting on my shot last week . It is greatly appreciated.
    My shot this week is of Nana, a 13 yr old lab retriever. Her owner wanted some shots of her doing what she loves. The lack of hearing, cataracts and arthritis did not keep her from going after the ducks on command. She truly loves doing this.
    00Zc4W-416195584.jpg
     
  73. Thought I'd post another from the film I shot recently. This is a site I was scouting for a portrait shoot so took the opportunity to take a few photos. Kinda looks like the set from Transformers or something.
    00Zc5F-416203584.jpg
     
  74. Another image from my recent trip to Kiawah island. Late evening, near twilight, patterns in the wake of a boat. Shot with my favorite 300mm f/4 EDIF AF Nikkor and D300. I have a series of these which I like very much.
    Sorry for being so irregular in Nikon Wednesday this year. Great to see this weekly collection of images.

  76. Happy Wednesday to all. I am back after a few backs with a shot from last weekend's zoo visit.
    my favorites from this week's contributions are :
    Mitchell's garden view, Michael's fall, Martin's building, Tony's church and the baby, Le's stairs, Alex's couple, John's window, Doug's painting, Panayotis's fall sky, Sundar's park view, Simon's view, Jared's Stella and Sebastian's waves.
    As i make the list, I realize every week it is getting longer...
    00Zc6y-416227584.jpg

    Bashar's squirrel

    Dave's fire festival portraits
    Panayotis's red leaves
    Pierre's looking circle
    and Sebastian's boat wake.

  85. Some great shots today. I've missed the last four or five weeks I think, due to a long deserved trip to Thailand. 4500 or so shots later trying to find just one to put here.... impossible comes to mind. but here goes.
    This was taken at Wat Chet Yot in Chiang Mai.

  87. Even pesky vines can become almost attractive in fall colors. My favorites this week; Bashar Alshabi - excellent capture of the magic moment, Christopher Sperry - beautiful colors and lines, John Farrar - very good colors and feel of the flow, Sebastian Moran - love the wave.

    Another great week for Nikon lovers. Kudos to Christopher S, Rick D, Benjamin S, and Sundar M. Thanks all.
    My contribution is from last weekend's zoo trip. Fun times.

  92. Thanks Jamie. Nice bird shot he follows me with his eyes as I move around the room.
     
  93. All sorts of great work this week, everyone. But I'd feel truly remiss if I didn't mention Sebastian's wave abstraction as the fascinating image that it is. Love it.
