Nikon Wednesday 2011: #47

Discussion in 'Nikon' started by uplandlife, Nov 22, 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!​
    Hello Nikon people, and a happy Thanksgiving to those in the US this week. A recent day spent with those for whom I'm particularly grateful (first responders and those who commit to military service), gave me a chance to see something else I've always enjoyed - a hard working bird dog outside of its usual element. This Lab/Pointer mix and his MP handler specialize in working disaster scenes, looking for people in trouble. Pointed your Nikon gear at something you'll be thinking about this week? Share a photo!

  6. Was walking through a local park on a surprisingly pleasant November afternoon looking for something different in a fall color shot. Happened upon this woman enjoying the sun and a good book.

  7. It's been a while but a new F to M4/3 adapter lets me back into the Nikon POTW game. 70-300mm AF ED Nikkor zoom on Panasonic Lumix G2.

  9. Hi Nikonistas,
    Been rummaging through the hard drive checking for images to make up a calendar, found some gems I had forgotten about. This is from our summer vacation trip to Spain. Tiger shaking off water after trying to submerge to fetch a bit of chicken thrown by the keepers.

  20. Happy Wednesday! I've been seeing a lot of Monarch butterflies lately, so thought I would share one with you. I usually find them on the lavender Crucita bush, but liked this on the Butterfly Milkweed plant, since it's about as close to "Fall Colors" as we have down here. Hope everyone in the US has a Happy Thanksgiving, and for those friends elsewhere, have a happy day! (D90/Sigma 150mm@1/2500 f/4.5 ISO 400)

  26. So landscape photography is all about planning - place, time and direction of sunset, etc. But how often does it work like that? On this occasion it did - the weather was kind. And then a rapid descent from the hill, racing the dark.
    00Zdwp-418181784.jpg
     
  27. Was blessed with the opportunity recently to do some portraits of a very good friend. A beautiful lady with a incredible heart for others. Loving the posts this week.

    Hello Nikonians, nice work. Jerry, Simon, Jeannean, Tom my of my favs so far (sure more are coming). Thanks to Doug and Jamie for your kind comments last week.

    This week seems to have a portrait motif, unfortunately my last client asked not to publish any pictures before X-mas (present for mom), so I am posting a "test" shot with a Nikon AW100 (I did a mini hands on review). This is a neat camera for outdoors, however as you can probably see, not a stellar performer at higher ISOs.
    00ZdyO-418229584.jpg
     
  39. Great work everyone...... having a chance to post today.... Cheers!

  42. Greetings from the depths of northern Ontario.
    My 5 year old grand niece was turned into a 'chocolate zombie' on the occasion of my father's 90th birthday. My dad enjoyed the cake but Sarah really got into it. I notice how the camera makes her look much older than her age...or maybe it was the chocolate.

  50. Wow! Simply too many great photographs posted today. I'm embarrassed to even post a pic, some of the work here today is truly astounding. I can't remember if I've posted this before, so if I have, my apologies.
    00Zdzm-418269584.jpg
     
  51. What? No church interior yet this week?
    Let me rectify that.
    Tech data: D700 + 28mm PC-Nikkor, 1/80th @ f/5.6, 800 ISO. Several layers combined from one original NEF to compensate for mixed lighting and increase dynamic range. Tried the "hue" blend mode for the first time - well useful!

  52. Lovely photos so far this morning. Thanks for the kind comments on my phot last week. This was shot a couple weeks ago while doing some street shooting in Pittsburgh, Pa.

  58. Thank you for commenting on my shot last week !
    I planted some sunflowers late in the season hoping to have some fall flowers. Our warm November has allowed them to bloom . The bees, butterflies and I are very grateful for them.
    We had a very heavy fog the other morning which left a lot of moisture on the flowers. I was trying to get shots to do a stack , when the drops started falling off. Those that know me, know water drops hold a special place in my heart. I had a ball trying to catch the drops as they fell.
    Happy Thanksgiving to all.

    There use to be turkey's here before the pulp mill. When will it stop. Happy Thanksgiving!
     
  68. Good Morning Everyone -- Once again a marvelous display of talent; each picture deserves acknowledgement and acclaim. Among the many, I must single out Panayotis' improvised beach umbrella (?) as especially lovely. My shot was taken at a local olive picking party. Little girl, big horse. Thank You.
    00Ze2n-418329584.jpg
     
  69. I'm having a difficult time posting this morning for some reason.--Site Errors. Lost all my comments and don't want to retype them. Anyway, congratulations to Panayotis for his mysterious beach shot. Mine was taken at a local olive pickling party. Thank you.
     
  70. Sorry for the double posting; I don't know what happened. Jim
     
  71. Here is my contribution for today. This is a big leave and I stood behind it to shoot it against the sunlight. I liked the way it does look. It does remind me about the circulatory human system and beside that, on the inferior part of the picture, there is a perfect triangle, a square and a oval. Hope you like it.
    Best regards,
    Mauricio

  79. Hoping you and your families have a thankful day tomorrow...My entry for the week is a photo that was a first place winner for the Springfield Republican Newspaper (Western Ma) about a week and a half ago. It won the fall photography contest and was featured on the front page of the Sunday newspaper. I was so exited.

    Cory's squirrel
    and Maurice's leaf
    As the days get shorter I'm finding that my journey to work is coinciding with rather nice light :) I stopped off for half an hour the other morning and took this shot of a boat on the river Adur at Shoreham Harbour.

  83. Lots of great photos this week. A few of my favorites:
    Jens Frederiksen - love the feel of isolation
    John Farrar - beautiful light
    David Janson - a very peaceful composition
    Maurice Orozco - very creative abstract with wonderful color
    My contribution is from a recent hike in Santa Cruz. It was the play of light and lines that caught my attention.

  86. Great photos this week, I'm a bit late to the game but this is at Arlington National Cemetery with the late afternoon sun peeking into the columbarium during an internment. The time change in the fall is a challenge that means more work to get good pictures but also a chance to make great images.

  91. Happy Thanksgiving to all, my shot this week is another from the Woodbridge Creek (NJ) series I'm working on. These are some recent fall colorings to enjoy. Nikon D200, 180mm @ f5.6 These are what they are, exactly as shot, I never change anything.
    00ZeBV-418523584.jpg
     
  92. Happy thursday,
    I'm a bit late... Bashar, your starting goose (?) is fantastic, as is Jens harbour-scene and Simons captain - to name just a few of my favorites this week.
    I was on the baltic sea yesterday - starting early morning in really dense fog (saw some great harbor-scenes, but was too busy avoiding collisions) and arriving at dusk.
    Here's a shot of the harbor-approach-buoy - the light was very strange, a leaden yellow or so.
    00ZeFp-418615584.jpg
     
  93. Sorry, I am way too late, but I wanted to contribute every week and yesterday was just one of those days - sigh... Since 'portrait' seems to be the theme, I thought I'd post this photo, which I took a while back at an Icelandic Horse competition.

    Over the Thanksgiving weekend, my wife and I went to the central California coast to photograph costal wildlife. We found this sea otter feeding on clams and other shellfish. He (She?) is smart enough to use a piece of rock to crack open the clam shell. See the piece of rock on his belly? He would slam the clam on the rock a couple of times, ditch the rock and then feed on the meat. We watched that behavior over and over as my wife captured that process on video.
    This week's thread is drawing to a close. I'll have more otter images for the coming weeks.
    Nikon D7000 with 200-400mm/f4 AF-S VR, @ ISO 400, 400mm, f4, 1/800 second.
