Nikon Wednesday 2012: #27

  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!​
    A good Nikon Wednesday to everyone, and a sincere hope that you're not among the million or so people still without power (and AC and post-production tools!) in the wake of that heckuva storm that blew from the midwest out through the mid-Atlantic this past Friday night. Here in the DC area, it's sweltering, and too many people are still unplugged, with power lines and trees still down throughout the region. So, how about a nice tall glass of ice-cold orange-infused tea? This was seen at an outdoor market on Sunday, and rapidly consumed by the parade of sweaty locals adrift and looking for a place to recharge their smartphones.

    Had your Nikon gear out to record this nasty round of weather? Share a photo!

  11. Hello everyone! Another happy Wednesday to all.. My contribution this week is a bird shot which I took through my window. I dont know exactly what it is but it may be a Black-billed Koel (Eudynamys Melanorhynchus). I am not sure. Can someone please help? :)
  12. Great shots so far. This is a shot from early spring. I visited the New York Historical Society with my daughters. This is a civil war uniform of the NY Irish Brigade who fought at the Battle of Gettysburg (July 1 - 3, 1863). This photo is to honor all of our soldiers past and present, Living and deceased.
  13. Hi everyone. Hope you all have a happy and safe Fourth of July!
    Michigan International Speedway
  14. who is the king!?
  15. It's been an emotional time for our family this past week. We had to say goodbye to our 15-year-old Shih tzu. RIP, Buddy. We'll never forget you.
  16. Some old-looking flowers.
  17. Yeah, weather - wet, wet and windy in Wales.....
  18. Wonderful photos everybody, especially Matt, Bill J Boyd and Mark Sirota.
    I photographed in very difficult light condition this week and pushed my camera to the limits.
    Nikon D700, 24-70mm f/2.8@ISO 6400, f/2.8, 1/20s
  19. My pic for this week was made with Nikon D200, AF 50mm f/1.8 at f/5.6, 1/80 s, ISO 100. Hope you like it.

  25. Just Dolly coming by to say Hi! Robert, my sympathy on the loss of Buddy, just like losing family. As a side note, our Dolly was just diagnosed with SARDS (Sudden acquired retinal dysfunction/degeneration). We don't know to what extent her vision has been impacted, but if you have a dog and you suspect they may have vision problems, find a canine ophthalmologist ASAP.
  26. Great hot weather picture, Matt—cool and refreshing. Glad to see you're still able to lead off despite the storm damage in your area.
    I probably didn't use the smartest settings for this one. Had just walked outside after shooting in a dimly lighted bowling center, was distracted by talking on the cell phone, and wanted to grab this before it went away, which it promptly did.
  27. So many stunning shots. Happy 4th!
  28. Swannery at Abbotsbury, Dorset.
  29. A shot taken from the lunch room deck at my office. The Blue Angels were practicing for an airshow this past weekend. The sounds of the jets flying low over our building was amazing. Happy 4th all!
  30. Happy 4th of July! Robert and Mark, so sorry about your dogs. :( This baby Black-necked Stilt is the sole survivor and is fiercely protected by the parents. I guess I didn't look too threatening, because they allowed a couple of photos before they decided to move. (D7000/500mm@1/1600, f/6.3, ISO 320)
  31. looking up
  32. Golden Dragonfly
  33. Guess who showed up at the park Saturday? Happy 4th!! Nikon D3x, Nikon 28-300 3.5, 300mm, F/10, 1/100ss, ISO 400
  34. Another week of hot and humid weather here in Maryland, but last week we escaped to Acadia National Park in Maine to cool off in the rain. This photo is one of the paths in Thuya Gardens overlooking Winter harbor.
  35. Hello friends and a happy Wednesday! Lovely pics so far! Keep up the good work!
  36. Happy 4th to the Americans on the board. On a trip along the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina, took this one. Enjoy!

    Jose, I love the photo of your daughters saluting in front of the Civil War uniform.
    I am reading a book titled "Cain At Gettysburg" and the NY Irish brigade is mentioned quite a bit
    in the book.

  40. Robert, so very sorry about Buddy. They do become part of the family and are a great loss.
    Even though it was a very hot morning with no breeze, it made for wonderful reflection shots.
    Hope you enjoy.
  41. Ralph at the Barbeque. D200, 70 mm.
    On American Independence Day (and everyday) I feel blessed to be an American. I send a special salute to my nephew and the men and women who volunteer to serve our country.

  43. Lots of great pictures, as always. I didn't have time to contribute to the thread recently. New addition to the family as well as the fact I shoot lots of film on my Yashica TLR. My family and I got a chance to get out to see a firework show downtown Chicago, I managed to capture some street shots with my Nikon d300.
  44. Guess what landed in my backyard a couple of days ago. Nikon D700 + Nikon 70-200mm VR I. Enjoy! Chris.
  45. For those in the USA, Happy Fourth of July!
  46. Happy 4th to all. Great photos, as usual. The model is my 12 year old niece.

  48. Also, Bob Dein, very powerful portrait.
  49. A very inspiring set of photos already this morning... thanks everyone! This photo was made in our backyard yesterday as our grand daughter cooled off in a low sprinkler to get relief from a 100 degree heat index in Port Washington, WI (usually cooler near the lake).
  50. Happy wednesday!
    Bashar Alshabi and Bob Dein: excellent portraiture!
    I had some fun with an old Ai-Nikkor in the garden.
    The Ai 24/2 renders out-of-focus highlights rather expressive :)
