Nikon Wednesday 2012: #38

Discussion in 'Nikon' started by uplandlife, Sep 18, 2012.

  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: http://www.photo.net/nikon-camera-forum/00W7km. We're still testing out the idea of allowing members to post up to three images per week - let's see if that's still feeling like a good idea.​
    Hello Nikonistas, and a good Wednesday to everyone. Though we're still exploring the up-to-three images option for those in the mood, I'm just posting the one today. Still working my way through post on my Uncle Bob wedding shots from a couple weeks back. The groom's young cousin was on flower-girl duty, and I got her gazing at (of course) a bouquet of flowers held by a bridesmaid. Nothing like some outdoor light for such an occasion. Had your Nikon gear out for a formal affair? Share a photo (or three!).

  10. Greetings from the depths of northern Ontario.
    It's 4C here right now and the coldest part of the night is yet to come (sigh).
    This is Hattie subjected to a zoom while exposing.

  11. I got a new-to-me toy the other day, just in time for the San Francisco International Dragon Boat Festival. I didn't quite have the vantage point to get great shots of the races themselves, but I got a few interesting shots of the folks on land. The saturation and sharpness are absolutely unreal. In fact, I ended up using Adobe's D2X "mode 2" process.

  16. Greetings! Lovely rose/coral-color suffused portrait of the young girl, Matt. Jose's fiesta performers are gorgeous in their expressiveness (the first and last images, particularly). Craig Cooper -- that is a fantastic image, just perfect!

  17. I was fortunate to spend some time last week at Crater Lake, Oregon, the deepest (and bluest) lake in the U.S. First one, of a sunset, doesn't even include the lake. But keep scrolling and you'll see it...

  35. Vama Veche is the last (little) town before you enter in Bulgaria from Romania, near of Black Sea.
    I was there to make a photo session, trash the dress, and I didn't sleep all night, I don't know why and before I go to sleep I taked my camera and I was to the shore of Black Sea.

    Happy Wednsaday! Just one from me today... finally got around experimenting with some star trail photography...turns out the "quiet" sky was not as quiet as thought, probably does not help to live even remotely close to an airport ;{ Well at least the Photoshop action works, these are ~ 300 images combined.
    00aq58-497080584.jpg

  70. Hi everyone! Just one from me this week. I took a really short work related trip to Lapland, and was lucky enough to catch a faint glimpse of Aurora Borealis at night. This one is taken near Inari at the lake Muddus.

    I haven't finished publishing this set, but as before, click through to see them on Flickr, including more from the set.
    I want to turn it into a photo essay illustrating the huge amount of work that goes into setting up a show -- in this case, five hours for a seven-man crew to set up, 20 minutes to blow it all to smithereens, and then another hour to clean up.
     
  78. Greetings to all Nikonistas. A shot of some deadfall in the woods during a hike this past weekend. The contrast of the green and lush with the dead trees caught me.

  81. Louis,
    That is a very nice shot with the old Nikon F Photomic. Gotta love them oldies.
     
  82. Thanks John. The F still delivers the goods..works like a fine Swiss watch.
     
  83. Happy Wednesday all, I'm going to stay with the one image too, another shot from my on going Woodbridge River Series (NJ). Nikon D200, ISO125, 180mm AF-D, 1/400th @ f4

    Nikon Buddies,
    Much to like today, especially Chris R. Speaker. I love everything about that shot. Jose Curiel, I'm cracking up looking at those two girls in front of your first shot; great capture.
    I'm cheating a little, today, as I've got four pictures in one. But all four are required to spell "LOVE". This couple had a great time in our photo booth at a recent wedding. This was one of their sessions. They're looking up at the monitor, instead of at the camera, but I thought they did a great job. Oh, and I replaced the bride and groom caption with our logo.

  90. Not posting any photo. I've not touched a camera for almost 2 weeks. We're in the middle of remodeling our kitchen & the whole house is upside down. I've also dealt with horrific headaches all week so I can't even think of hooking up one of my external HDs to find a photo to process & share. Too much for me right now.

    Just wanted to say - nice shots as I've enjoyed looking at your shares.
    Lil
