  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. Our forum moderators are still allowing up to three images per week, so show 'em if you got 'em!​
    A good Nikon Wednesday to everyone. I'm still digging through the post work from a recent day shooting at the Washington DC fire department's training academy. The grounds offer a couple of re-burnable buildings that fill with smoke, debris, and volunteer victims. Here, five members of the US Army Band enjoy a bit of early morning sunshine while waiting for some mass casuality simulation coaching from one of the incident commanders. Musicians or not, soldiers can sleep anywhere, anytime. What snoozed in front of your Nikon gear this past week? Share a photo!

  6. Wednesday greetings! Matt, there's an intriguing surreality to that scene, as though looking down on miniature characters in some sort of tableau. Rich Johnson: breathtaking pristine beauty! I've been out in our gorgeous New England fall, as I'm an unabashed sucker for "stained glass" backlit foliage! I'm posting "Katsura, Luminous", a nicely side-lit late afternoon scene in a surprisingly well designed and landscaped cemetery, that looks like an Olmstead park.

  7. Good Wednesday, everybody!
    I took this photo of the fall colors along US Route 395, in Eastern Sierra mountains.

  9. The past two weeks, Linnanmäki Amusement Parkin Helsinki had the "Carnival of Light" with free entrance to the public, with lights, theatre, circus performances, music, dance, and finally fireworks. However, it was raining most of the time ... Here are a few pics of the performers of Sirkus Aikamoinen when the weather was still decent.

  17. Vicky said that her image on the camera's LCD looks better than what she sees in the mirror. High praise for Nikon! Sorry, Canon. :)

  19. The Autumn shades in the UK are very vivid this year but not much sun to make them shine - but when it does it makes me realise what a great hobby photography is.

  20. Arlington National Cemetery, recently.

  21. Greetings Nikonians wherever you are in the world! A good Wednesday to everyone. My picture this week was taken with the risk of limbs and life, more or less...You can’t see it from the picture, but the rocks were very slippery near the waterfall. Anyway, it all went well and I got some shots of the waterfall before the sun disappeared behind the mountains.
    00axLy-500684084.jpg
     
  22. A little fall color in my front yard. Of course, when I'm done admiring the leaves I have to pick them all up...
    00axMN-500689684.jpg
     
  23. The Upper Falls at Letchworth State Park in New York State.
    00axMT-500691584.jpg
     
  24. So, hopefully, this little fellow escaped the 'big' snooze. At a trip to Morikami Gardens in WPB FL, we found this little owl in trouble, standing in a few inches of water and making only a half-hearted attempt to escape. After one, he fell face down in the mud. A kind soul rescued it (at potentially great risk to herself) and took it to a place where it can recover and grow. Didn't have time to pull up the exif but used my D7000 and 70-200 VR1 + 1.4TC.
    00axMY-500691684.jpg
     
  25. Wow some very nice exposures this morning. My shot was taken actually before sunrise with a gorgeous sky this past week. Hand held the camera and hoped for the best.
    00axMZ-500691784.jpg
     
  26. ... and falling down. Sad moment

  27. The rescue
    00axMc-500691984.jpg
     
  28. I lost one of my dearest friends Billy last week to cancer. This is Billy and his dearest friend Molly snoozing after a rough day. The best and sometimes the worst thing about being a photographer is the memories we create.

  29. An exposure of some golden maple trees at Findley State park in NE Ohio. The leaves in my area are just about done for this Autumn.

  30. Fall leaves on my back porch, from a quick photo shoot last Saturday before breakfast. Two images (one defocussed) and combined in Photoshop.
    00axMj-500693584.jpg
     
  31. Can someone e-mail me instructions on how to post pictures here kwbybee@gmail.com The little picture icon just asks for a url, what ever that is. Can't we just drag and drop? Sorry for the ignorance.

    Happy October Wednesday, beautiful fall colors!
    My D800 is still at Nikon... so still shooting my "backup" UV/IR converted D7000 with filter and custom white balance. Gets to be a bit annoying... lens is 85 mm f1.4 AFS.
    Two cousins, a few, grey days ago.

  46. Hello all Nikon lovers,
    No snoozing here as these images from a photo shoot on a yacht make it look like we were warping through time. Actually, the yacht wasn't moving very fast, just kept the shutter open for a bit.
    Nice entries today. Digging the fall colors. Down here in South Florida the biggest sign of fall is when hundreds of yachts make their way to Ft Lauderdale for the largest boat show in the world, going on this weekend.

  47. Second image. Warping through time.

  50. Rick,
    Sorry to hear of your best friend Billy's passing.
    That photo of Billy and his best friend Molly, to me, says "Peaceful".
    That is just beautiful.

  58. One of the things I miss out on by living on the West Coast is the beautiful trees. This week's photos look great!
    This week I was going through my pictures. I found a few I took of a kid busking out near San Francisco's Union Square.

  61. Wow, lots of really superb photos contributed this week! Rick, so sorry about the loss of your friend.
    Last Thursday, we set a record temperature for Oct.; 104 degrees, so I headed to South Padre Island for the weekend where it was a bit cooler (not much though). Here are some of the characters I ran into...

  62. Thank you very much, Issac. I am very impressed by your photo of the stream. It is so simple and elegant. A pleasure to rest the eyes on.
     
  63. Doug Santo--an absolutely beautiful clock! And a great photo to boot..
    You are quite the craftsman..Messrs Greene and Greene would be proud.
    Paul
     
  64. Happy Wednesday, all!
    A shot from a couple weekends ago at one of the World Wide Photo Walk locations, Harpers Ferry, WV. Although it's mostly a national park there are parts that have a rather nice 'rustic' look.

  67. This past Saturday I finally had a chance to take my new camera for a spin under the lights at my son's football game. All in all a good evening as they whooped up on their opponent because of plays like this one.
